So Biden wants to “emancipate” wealth? OK, let’s take a look at how he got his

Biden is the quintessential political Cheshire cat. (The Washington DC subspecies.)  The guy can smile through anything. Probably a good thing to be able to do if one is Vice President Biden.

“Just keep smiling.

Just keep smiling.”

How come Google got to see proposed “Net neutrality” rules (and get them changed) but the public cannot?

Putting aside the fact that Google may very well be right here this development just reflects whose interests are represented at the FCC. It’s not ours that’s for sure.

Though Left-fascism embraces the Marxist ideas of “hierarchy” and “oppression” and other tenets associated with the radical Left, Left-fascism has more in common with Goebbels and Hitler than it does with anything which could remotely be called “liberal.” God forbid (trigger warning: I used the name of God, oh wait too late) any legitimate quest for truth or beauty. Left-fascism, driven by the grievance studies crowd, is an oppressive, anti-intellectual, anti-liberal, anti-human (even anti-humanist) ethos of death and self pity. It is a philosophy of second class minds.
