Quote of the Day

James Zogby:

The idea that the minority party represents the “will of the people”
(not some of the people, but “the people”) is the seedling of a totalitarian mindset. In this mindset — democracy doesn’t matter, ideas are not to be discussed, and opposing views are not to respected. What matters is that they alone have truth, they alone are metaphysically connected to the “mind of the people” can interpret their will, and because they have truth and speak for the people, others represent a threat and must be silenced and stopped.

  1. Yep, that’s what the Thugs are really good at creating: a boogeyman. Whether they are in the minority or the majority, it’s always a fear thing with them. Gays vs. straights, blacks vs. whites, Castro vs. the US, illegal “aliens” vs. “real” Americans.

    During the Bush years everyone remembers when Rummy and the gang had us all scurrying over to the Home Depot to purchase duct tape and plastic sheets to cover our windows. OOOOwww, be afraid, be VERY AFRAID. Trick or fucking treat, everday of the year!

  2. Most people are not aware the the Bolsheviks took their name from the word for majority despite the fact that their party was a minority party. And the Mensheviks, which came from the word for minority in fact out numbered the Bolsheviks. But they did not out maneuver them.
