Folks, this is fascism

"'I don't think federal bureaucracy can handle the next disaster," said Toye Taylor, the president of Washington Parish, one of the hardest hit areas in Louisiana, who met with Mr. Bush this week.

"I expressed to the president that it would take a new partnership between the military and private sector," Mr. Taylor said. 'Because there will be another one and I don't think the federal government is going to be able to help." Indeed, Mr. Bush said in his address to the nation from New Orleans on Thursday night that the military would play a new role in federal disaster relief."

From wikipedia: The Doctrine of Fascism

The Labour Charter (Promulgated by the Grand Council for Fascism on April 21, 1927)—(published in the Gazzetta Ufficiale, April 3, 1927) [sic] (p. 133)

The Corporate State and its Organization (p. 133)

The corporate State considers that private enterprise in the sphere of production is the most effective and usefu [sic] [typo-should be: useful] instrument in the interest of the nation. In view of the fact that private organisation of production is a function of national concern, the organiser of the enterprise is responsible to the State for the direction given to production.

State intervention in economic production arises only when private initiative is lacking or insufficient, or when the political interests of the State are involved. This intervention may take the form of control, assistance or direct management. (pp. 135-136)

What the hell is going on?!

The Patriot Act, which limits the freedoms of patriots ... provocative by its very nature and thereby self-fulfilling in its proof of the need for further restrictions on freedom.

A strategy in Iraq destined to provoke an insurgency that can only be quelled by the Battle of Armageddon ... which we will win because we have the bomb, right?

And now after the purposeful gutting of the working govenment, we have the calls for the militarization of our nation.

What's going on? This is FASCISM, folks.
