    That's aiight, I'm used to disagreeing, when this board first started, I was the only one with any liberal points of view at all. Once you handle that, you can handle anything.

    you and Ghandi, man.

    jejeje

    you have by far the most disturbing avatar I could have thought possible. It actually gives me vague feelings of nausea, but every time you post, I find myself mesmorized by it. May I ask where you found that horror? I think I want to worship it.

    :D

    cheers.

    I was thinking the same thing, Bry. I think it sends subliminal liberal messages to the masses. :D

    Seriously though, if I know Dan it's probably something from one of the wacky bands that he listens to. Dan is a bit unique in his musical and artistic tastes.

    Haha, actually, Jim, you're wrong this time! Sorry!

    I was at the Snopes.com message board (it's all about urban myths) and someone had that, and i thought it was cool so I stole it. There's a girl in my English Lit class who has a patch on her bookbag of that same character, I've been meaning to ask her what it is.

    I know, right? Just because I took someone's avatar. And I was listening to mp3's direct from Kazaa. And I was doing all this on the computer I robbed from my neighbor.

    Jeff, as a fellow Republican I should tell you that I've already identified and reported Dan to the GOP, so omit him in your report back to HQ.

    Newt is keeping a very, very close eye on him. :beer:

    <<The chart also makes clear that, despite popular perceptions, the opposite of fascism is not communism but anarchism (ie liberal socialism), and that the opposite of communism ( i.e. an entirely state-planned economy) is neo-liberalism (i.e. extreme deregulated economy)>>

    Someone redefine this please, I was under the impression that Fascism is a state controlled economy through corporatism and that Socialism is a state controlled economy throught ownership by the peoples of that state. I also have a hard time listening to people like Rumsfeld define husseins Baath party as 'evil socialism' when iraq was anything but ruled and owned by the people. I would also think that an extreme deregulated economy is something that the far right capitalists would like to see because of the increase in competition and trade, or is that wrong also?

    DK,

    Your definitions are pretty right on. I think that defining Iraq as a socialist state is somewhat misleading, as Saddam was more of a dictator/tyrant than a socialist leader, though it may be technically correct.
    As far as an "extreme deregulated economy," I think most of us on the political Right would like to see less regulation exactly because we think it would lead to increased competition and trade, which in turn would lead to more jobs (lower unemployment).
