Even worse, I think he might be a tea-partier.

Seriously? You had to go there?

Meh, maybe I'm just only encountering the crazy ones, but Matshock's ridiculous behavior and arguments seems pretty par for the course with the Tea Party faithful.


Every party has fringe nutbags, I don't think wanting some form of becoming fiscally responsible is a crazy idea personally. But to each their own.

I agree, only a dunce would invest $75 million taxpayer dollars in a start up headed up by an athlete during a depression in a state with a toxic business climate.

Another monument to Amerikan fascism...

Nice k. Now how is this fascism?


I'm glad you asked. The original term was coined by Benito Mussolini-
fascism being the combination of words federal and capitalism- so, essentially federally controlled capitalism.

I'm using the word according to its origins rather than the Orwellian newspeak you may be accustomed to.

Now there's a bit of license in the sense that we in the USA also have supposedly sovereign states but I wouldn't be surprised if the loan was ultimately backed by the federal government anyway.

New London and Pfizer have a huge multi-million dollar empty field that used to be a neighborhood. That's another great example of Amerikan Fascism.

Dude, you live in New London?

No, he's just pulling that as an example of something really bad he thinks is fascism but isn't even remotely.

He's from Vegas.

Sure.
Really, though, you spend a few months posting trolling gibberish, getting much of the board to ignore you, then occasionally start a week or two of posting genuine, coherent discussion.

Then you're back to poorly punctuated gibberish.

I guess Bliz doesn't want people to flood the auction house? It's stupid. IF the RMAH didn't exist, this wouldn't be an issue b/c Bliz wouldn't be so uptight as to how many magic items people found.

Yet another way in which Bliz's decisions on D3 are making the game less fun.

Why the hell doesn't Curt Schilling's just STFU? Does he have Brad Wardell disease? The RI government are not the ones who spent themselves into oblivion with virtually nothing to show for it except one over-priced mediocre and soulless RPG that sold like crap.

I don't expect that RI is blameless in this, but ultimately the company and its abundant resources were so poorly managed its failure was inevitable.

He definitely is, but his argument that "fascism" is a portmanteau is absurd and must be trolling.

The point is that the word Fascism has no etymological relationship to the modern words Federal or Capitalism. In other words, your claim couldn't be any more wrong. If you want to dodge that by making some snide remark about Jericho that's your prerogative but it certainly makes you look like a pussy who can't admit when he's wrong.

The fasces were THE symbol of Roman Auctoritas, Imperium, and power in general. By adopting the Fasces as their symbol and the name for their movement, the Italian Fascists were declaring themselves as the founders of a reborn Roman Empire. Furthermore, the bundled rods of the fasces are such that it is very difficult to break them. Individually rods can be broken, but bundled together they are strong. The symbolism of that, and it's relationship to Fascist ideology should be obvious.

As for whether Mussolini coined the term, I had been under the impression he had. I could be wrong on that though, and I'll need to look it up. Either way, the term originated among the Italian political parties that gave birth to Fascism as a political movement in the nineteen-teens and twenties.

Italian isn't Latin. Wow.

Where do you think the Italian word fasces comes from?

Italian fascismo, from fascio bundle, fasces, group, from Latin fascis bundle & fasces fasces
First Known Use: 1921

ROFL. You're just making shit up.

Yes, Mussolini coined the term fascism, but the word was derived from the Latin fasces, the axe bundled in rods carried by the Lictors of Ancient Rome, which symbolized an Imperium-holding (and only a Roman with Imperium was escorted by Lictors) Roman's authority to inflict capital and corporal punishment on his soldiers.

Actually, that's not the definition of fascism. It especially isn't the etymology, as it comes from Latin, not being a combination of two English words, and does not even derive from the same terms that "Federal" or "Capitalism" come from.

Nor was it coined by Mussolini.


Wow. All I'll say is "Wow."

Wow, another denial of me by you with no citations. Wow.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Supercapitalism_(concept_in_Italian_Fascism)

Some words have very similar phonetic properties and meanings across different languages. Wow.

http://dictionary.reference.com/browse/fascism

Origin:
191520; < Italian fascismo, equivalent to fasc ( io ) bundle, political group ( see fasces) + -ismo -ism

Italian isn't Latin. Wow.

B.M. was at the front of creating the world's first major fascist state and thus defined *or coined* the term. Wow.

Seriously kid- who are you trying to impress?
