I'm at a loss to explain it in any meaningful way, but I do know that nothing I write here will make a difference in how the Obama government is run. He is not a Socialist nor a Communist and he (sure as hell) isn't a Capitalist. He is an Obamamist, a brand new way of governing, if you aren't aware of the methods used by Adolf Hitler in the 1930s and 40s and Hugo Chavez and the Fidel Castro methods used during the later 19 hundreds and early 20s. His governing methods can be easily described as "my way or the highway!" If you don't know what that means, then you might not understand that Obamanistic governing methods means that he will dictate how everything happening in our government will function as he says it shall function.

See O'Brien "Plague Journal" for a novel about this new totalitarianism. You are right it is new and it isn't like fascism, communism, Peronism, Chavism etc.. In the age of TV, cool works better than hot, image works better than words written on a page, and group think becomes the norm. It ends in "Brave New World" and the ultimate crushing of what it is to be human. Previous totalitarians had dysfunctional economic models, but these guys will be fascism with a cool smile and it will work if those who read and think do not find ways to fight it with images and coolness as well. It will still look like freedom in most ways, it will still look like capitalism. but it's all image and enforced by your neighbors caught up in group think.

Not so many moons ago, President Obama urged us all to "make sure that we are talking with each other in a way that heals, not a way that wounds." He Who Heals advocated "a more civil and honest public discourse" in the wake of the January 2011 Tucson massacre. As usual, though, the White House has granted Big Labor bullies a permanent waiver from the lofty edicts it issues to everyone else.

This week, menacing union goons unleashed threats, profanity and punches in Michigan, which is now poised to become a "right-to-work" state. Obama met the initial outbreak of violence with...
