    Historian Gaetano Salvemini argued in 1936 that fascism makes taxpayers responsible to private enterprise, because "the State pays for the blunders of private enterprise... Profit is private and individual. Loss is public and social." Fascist governments encouraged the pursuit of private profit and offered many benefits to large businesses, but they demanded in return that all economic activity should serve the national interest.
    and that is certainly a facet of Fascism; everything must be turned to serve the state, whether that interest is economic, social, political, religious, etc. as Mussolini put it, "everything within the State, nothing outside the State". So, for example, the Bailouts of GM et. al. were classic Corporatist (fascist) economic maneuvers; the privatization of profit and socialization of loss.

    what is not a distinct facet of fascism, however, is wealth accumulation in the hands of a small minority. Fascism is ideologically a response to the Englightenment. However, wealth concentration was a defining feature of Feudal (pre-Enlightenment) society. You would be left arguing that Fascism could pre-date itself. You might as well declare that wearing brown was fascist, or that speaking German (or Italian) was fascist as declare that wealth concentration is.

    It's possible I've missed this, but Noodle, if being a teacher is such a great gig, why aren't you one? I mean, You only work 30 hours a week and make a bazillion dollars. It has to be better than your current job
    The Makeout Hobo is real, and does indeed travel around the country in his van and make out with ladies... If you meet the Makeout Hobo, it is customary to greet him with a shot of whiskey and a high five (if you are a dude) or passionate makeouts (if you are a lady).

    Yes, the most realistic proposal given so far.

    ..... you consider the belief that congress will actually destroy Medicare, growth will actually be 3.5% for every year for the rest of the decade, and unemployment will actually drop to 7.5% this year to be realistic???



    HOW?
