Are they serious?

Dear George,

It looks like you’ve got to take you minions out to the woodshed. And while you’re at it, tell Rush change his medication. The pills he’s popping are rotting his brain.

I see in the Sunday Times that the newest tactic of the Rabid Right is to brand Obama as a socialist.

Ewwww! Isn’t that a scary word? At least it was fifty years ago. However, that hasn’t stopped the Right from churning out bumper stickers that read, “Comrade Obama—USSA."

The problem with this tactic is that the only logical reply is to ask, “So, what has capitalism done for us lately?”

What has it done?

Your admirer,
Belacqua Jones

Of course the answer to that question, nothing! But the next question is do we rally have capitalism? Or do we have fascism, or somthing in between? As long as the mainstreet media moguls control the news/propaganda, peoples fears will be nurtured and the corporate state will win out and change will be a pipe dream.

Capitalism has been dead for decades. You are quite right that it's been replaced by the corporate state which proceeded to plow under the free market.
