AS TRUE TODAY AS WHEN HE SPOKE...


There are only two roads, victory for the working class, freedom, or victory for the fascists which means tyranny. Both combatants know what's in store for the loser.

It was a simpler time, or at least it appears to be so. In the context of the Spanish Civil War, it appeared to be between the facists, who represented big business and the worker class. Today is much more complex. We have big business and the government they appear to control, and the workers who toil but realize less and less and.... forgive me, it's not much different is it?
We came so far during the 60's and 70's - what the heck happened?

Sorry to answer your question witha another quote,what, but it is just so appropriate I couldn't resist....

"No government fights fascism to destroy it. When the bourgeoisie sees that power is slipping out of its hands, it brings up fascism to hold onto their privileges."

Buenaventura Durruti

"Before there was capitalism in Western Europe, there was feudalism. In French feudalism, the term "bourgeoisie" arose to refer to the middle-classes of the cities, people who traded or other men of wealth but not the highest social standing. The French Revolution of 1789 was the ultimate bourgeois revolution. It made the bourgeoisie the highest class. People who were rich but without the highest social standing tore down the privileges of the old upper classes in 1789.

In general the bourgeoisie brought about principles of rule that sanctified money above birthright or family ties. Having a prestigious name was no longer what brought one to the pinnacle of power under bourgeois rule."

"people who traded or other men of wealth but not the highest social standing." Ihave yet to find a better definition of a Bush Voter. This is the kind of a-hole who smirks about his tax-cut, tools around in a hummer and lives alone with his wife in a 6000 sq. foot McMansion...

Bon Soir my Friends,

I do apologize for my absense, but the bourgouis, as well as the elite, have emancipated the bread from my mouth, and therefore, I am
dependent upon the good job, and good fortune, of my oh so patient wife.
While 'times' are, well, insuffiecient at best, I look to the glint in my irrepressible wife's eye for inspiration, and what I see is this - Times, they are a changin'. I can feel it in these Midwest Bones, Monsieur Durrati.
The neep tide is nigh for the Faux-Texas Cartel, and in the immortal words of J.M. Barrie,
"Clap your hands, if you believe in faeries (hope)".

Inspector Jacques Clousea

P.S. Please pass the Pinot Grigio for I feel faint

Good to see ya Partz!

Sorry to hear you are still idle. I believe in faeries but it might take more than hope to oust these guys from office...
