So does this make it official that it is now illegal to be bearish?

Just a matter of time before so-called "financial analysts and financial bloggers" around the USSofA show up in tomorrow's headlines as those "apparently committed suicide."

Let's get this show on the fuckin' road.  I'm ready to shoot a couple of these twat's heads off.  If my blood is spilt, fuck it.  As long as I can take at least 2 down with me, it's on.

Too much "truthiness"

Only way to go to jail is to tell the truth...all liars, cheats, thieves are immune so long as they hold protect their overlord brethren.

Is anyone else tired of wasting brain cells, drafting well reasoned logical points of discussion in a fruitless attempt to reason with perpetual adolescents suffering from a terminal case of stockholm syndrome?

Trolling is a far more satisfying and efficient way to confront nazis wherever one finds them.

Word on the hill is that a Mr. O'brien will be doing most of the questioning and "re-education." Also, the Capitol is being renamed "The Ministry of Truth."

in McCarthy's defense, it turned out that a lot of the people he was accusing of being communists did in fact turn out to actually have been communists when the files got released decades later

Carroll Quigley disagrees. In "Tragedy & Hope", he states McCarthyism pretty much was a complete failure, although of course, that wasn't decades.

Before it was a failure it was a success. Ditto Hilter, Tojo, Stalin, Kaiser, Napoleon, Czar Nicholas, Mubarak, Hannibal, PeeWee Herman,  &c, &c, &c.

i like peewee.  i guess (it's only a guess) the "stunts" weren't that new, just that people noticed.  that was new.  that and the overdose of police.  didn't kill him like it did lenny bruce so that's something.  probably doesn't belong on a list with stalin, hitler and napoleon though.

I couldn't wait for Saturday morning to watch PeeWee talk to the King of Cartoons, Chair-y and the gang.  PeeWee's Big Adventure is still a favorite movie.

"Oh, silly.  There aren't any basements at the Alamo."



Loves it!

Anyone who justifies the good that McCarthy did in routing out communists as compared to the damage that he and his cronies did to innocents is smoking something.  History has pretty much ruled that the collateral damage wasn't worth it.

Especially if you weren't communist and were powerful enough to tell the guy to go pound sand. Talk about abuse of power.  Fuck Joe McCarthy, I spit on his grave.

I don't think being a communist is or ever was actually illegal in the United States.  How could it be?

not nearly as bad then as being a whistleblower today (cf. bradley manning, etc., etc.).  then you just had your career ruined, were a pariah, and were bankrupted by legal expenses.  now they got you in permanent solitary prior to trial and can tell you you're lucky you didn't get on the executive assassination list.  are this country's leaders great or what?

It's still illegal to be a communist if you want to (legally) immigrate to the US. Snares a lot of Chinese who joined the party because it was the thing to do to get ahead.

Oh no, I won't junk you.
Why, you're merely stating the truth.
Granted Americans apparently "can't handle the truth", but then that's their weakness.. isn't it.

But let me ask this to you all out there

Would the U.S. be any more fucked if the commie gremlins McCarthy led a witch hunt against .... had in fact had an impact.

I mean, all the dark forces that Ike cautioned against in his farewell speech did in fact prevail. The Military/Industrial Complex and Wall St/Big Banks have a strangle hold on the U.S. government now. Fact.
Even standing U.S. Senators have acknowleded that publicly so there's no denying this. And let's not even break up the topic of wall streets nigger ...Obama.

would .. no, make that COULD ...  the U.S. be anymore fooked now if commies had gained a minor toe hold back in the 50's?

what's worse ... a smign of communism or rampant, taken control facism?

Sadly, you make a powerful point.  It's ironic that the risks of the decline of our quasi-Capitalist system into lawless neo-feudalism were obvious to the socialists. 

Perhaps that is the real reason it was so desperately important to marginalize and demonize them. 

Will the charge of "socialism" still be an effective defense against reform when 1% of the population owns 95% of world assets?  It shouldn't be long now . . .
