What the World Needs Now

"... is love, sweet love..." Uh, nope. That's not really what I was going to say. I was going to say, "What the world needs now is a conservative female dictator."

That's right. ;-)

Today I've been told that fascism is an inherently leftist philosophy. When did they change that definition? I hate this postmodern crap. My pre-postmodern education which ended 21 years ago told me that fascism isn't necessarily "left" or "right". It can be either. But apparently because recent fascists have been socialists of some variety it has been decided that fascism is necessarily "leftist." Whoda thunk it?

Well, let's play that postmodern game for a minute. Let's give them some new evidence so they can change their definition again, back to its orginal, non-"handed" meaning.

I would be a perfect conservative, "rightist," fascist dictator. Give me that power and I'll prove it. ;-) I could easily crush that notion that fascism is inherently "leftist" or socialist. And actually, I think that is exactly what the world needs about right now. A conservative female fascist. A Vicious Momma to rule the world. ;-) I could whip, scold, scorn, reprimand, and time-out (imprison) everyone into better behavior. There are too many people running around these days who have never known real punishment. That's what's wrong with the world. I could change that. Yes, I do think that is what the world needs now.

"Ironman" by Black Sabbath as played on the game Guitar Hero. My eleven year old has this game and has played this song for me, but this isn't his video.

The other day AOL had a poll asking what Hillary's campaign theme song should be. I didn't look or think about it because I didn't have time and then got sick. Maybe she should use this song. It's pretty catchy. ;-)

Hi Rae,
The only way "Shrillary" can hope to win is if she goes with a metallica or scorpions song. Preferably one of the earlier metallicas, like maybe "For whom the bell tolls" or better yet, "One" which would give anyone the heebeegeebees. But the buttercup kissers from her far left support might wither 'neath the wailing bass.

Then again, the repubs are doing such a poor job that the demons could probably fly a dead chicken beneath a kite and get it elected.

Hope you're feeling better.

"fascism is an inherently leftist philosophy" Yep, and it's not taught in school. The inventor of fascism was Benito Mussolini, the Italian dictator of the 1920s - 1940s. He started life as a socialist, a Marxist, and a friend of Lenin. They disagreed on how the state should control the economy. The communists took the businessmen out and shot them and installed party leaders. The fascists left the businessmen in place, but told them exactly what to do, or they would be shot.
