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.

Personally I think all politicians are dunces of epic proportions...

They're charismatic, not smart. While Curt Schilling is neither.

If Chafee is a dunce I shudder to think what that makes Schilling.

Any ounce of goodwill anyone might have had towards Schilling should evaporate now, that was completely classless.

Chafee opposed the deal but he wasn't governor when it went down. Curt's incompetence is well documented by the media at this point, blame shifting won't do him any good.

That's good to know. Now all RI needs to do is to replace their legislature with (I)ndependent minded people.

Schilling you really have some nerve to be calling the Governor a "dunce of epic proportions" when you didn't in good faith meet the obligations of the loan. You really need to just stop talking.
