I find that we greatly misuse the term fascist. I found the term created by Herbert Spencer, English philosopher who became a follower of Darwinism. He also coined Libertarian. Following his published books and descriptions, I was able to follow them and find actions employed by notorious fascist practitioners to confirm them. Fascism is an economic system. Libertarianism is a social governing system. I believe we all have these attributes by varying degrees. But most people dismiss following the urges and act on them having learned to maintain a moral compass.

Thom,

Listened to your show today, but wasn't able to call in.

If people are looking for a group to join, they can go to Indivisibleguide.com. Indivisible is forming local groups and they are working in conjunction with Moveon.org and Working Families party on organizing and campaigns like #ResistTrumpTuesdays. These were the activists who showed up last Tuesday at 100 Senators' offices around the country to demonstrate against Trump's swamp cabinet.

Please spread the word about this on your program! Thank you!

women jailed for abortion, funny, isn't it??but what then about men, for example those who made the woman make this choice or just played with her and when she told 'I'm pregnant' they left because that's none of their business or those raped the woman??should those take the responsibility (well, of course, the latter will if they are caught)..still look like those pushing this one through just blame the woman but in fact she was not theo nly one making the baby and making the choice..looks like those politicins or whomever they are never tried to paid a mistress off so that she could take care of the unwanted child..besides based on stats collected by essay expert case study writers 47% say abortion is morally wrong while 43% say it is morally acceptable, 9% think it depends on situation and 2% have no opinion..basically if the government passes through a law about being jailed for abortion they won't be taking what those 43% think on the issue..basically this is a controversial issue and no one should force their ideas on others

What Do Democrats Really Want?

Thom plus logo Thomas Friedman, the confused billionaire, told us decades ago that "free trade" is what made the Lexus a successful product when, in fact, it was decades of Japanese government subsidies and explicit tariffs that did so.
