Fascism is a thought process….
It becomes “normal”.
Government and big business climb in bed together and take turns in power. These people live together, marry each other and their children go to the same schools together. They read the same newspapers, books, and watch the same type of movies.
They hire people to run for office that will protect their interests and then get people”appointed ” to the same government offices that regulate these same interests.
The most famous lately are Paulson and Geithner. These guys got us into much of this mess and now they’ll take turns protecting their private employers, Goldman Sachs and the Federal Reserve, who brought us to the brink of ruin.
But what really is interesting is when governments are so afraid of us that they have to “regulate” the “color” of our guns. (heh heh).
BELLEVUE, WA – The Second Amendment Foundation and three Washington, D.C. residents today filed a lawsuit challenging a regulation by District of Columbia city government that arbitrarily bans handguns based on a roster of “acceptable” handguns approved by the State of California.
The District is using this list despite a ruling by the U.S. Supreme Court last summer that protects handguns “that ordinary people traditionally use for self-defense.” This scheme could eventually bar the ownership of any new handguns.
Attorney Alan Gura, representing the plaintiffs in this case, noted that District bureaucrats “told Tracy Ambeau Hanson her gun was the wrong color.” Americans are not limited to a government list of approved books, or approved religions, he said. A handgun protected by the Second Amendment doesn’t need to appear on any government-approved list either.
“The Springfield XD-45 is approved for sale in Washington,” Gura noted, “so long as it is black, green, or brown, but her bi-tone version is supposedly ‘unsafe’
