    Let’s see: Austin leftwing producing class v. rightwing ruling leisure class . Let ’em battle it out. Winner decides whether to secede or not .

    Sounds like Atlanta. Or Asheville, NC
    Well, if the 1947 Airlift worked for Berlin, it should work for Austin.

    Yeah, but if the Austin libs win they won’t sterilize all the conservs. So no airlift needed.

    @Richard S. Russell

    I know one of your University of Wisconsin faculty members. Has a PhD in the history of science. Written several great scholarly books. Nice dude.


    He’s a high-output-producing hardworking person — not to mention, a liberal.

    Jerusalem without checkpoints? Not quite sure I get that; there aren’t checkpoints between West and East Jerusalem (though the invisible line is still very real). From Jerusaelm to the West Bank is another story, having had the experience of coming in from Ramallah through Kalandia this year.

    But if that is what Austin is like, I assume that the UT Austin is steadily being surrounded by ranch-style houses full of Bubbas in ten-gallon hats, flying confederate flags, and blasting out country music that drowns the mournful singer-songwriters playing accoustic sets in the student bar…?

    “Let … the productive sector of our society leave the “Liberals” to starve and freeze to death in the dark.”


    Well, this isn’t exactly forced sterilization, but if starving us and freezing us doesn’t work — as it didn’t in Nazi Germany (before Himmler’s gas chambers) — then can sterilization be far behind? (I won’t go any further with this line of argument, even though it would be logical to do so.) What Tucci’s post self-illuminates is the rightwing mindset. But is he embarrassed? Ask him.

    @Tucci

    Fascism has to do with quashing democracy and with linking government to big business, with one ruling the other.


    In the current U.S. case, the Republicans want — and are very nearly succeeding — to get big business to rule the government. This is the reverse of what happened in Europe in WWII and its buildup. But it’s still a form of fascism.


    In Nazi Germany’s case, fascist dictator Adolf Hitler ruled big business. In fascist Italy’s case, dictator Benito Mussolini did the same.


    In fascist Jonah Goldberg’s case, well, he’s only a wannabe anyway.


    In YOUR case, Tucci, if you waddle like a wannabe fascist duck-tater, quack like a wannabe fascist duck-tater, etc., as you are doing and have been doing on Doonesbury commentary for some time, then . . . .


    Let the good readers here make up their own minds.

    @Tucci: You’re more than welcome to leave anytime, taking Texas with you if y’all can read the map. Puerto Rico should more than make up the difference – in I.Q. – and they speak a pretty language, to boot.

    “Why bother? With abortion ….” “No eugenics are necessary.”


    Seig heil! But can we count on you? What if you change your mind? What if we can’t trust you, Mein Führer?

    People really nailed it here in talking about Austin in terms of the rest of the state of Texas. As to our latest GOP troll, no one on the liberal side is talking about forcing anyone to carry out unwanted pregnancies, however the GOP does wish to force unwanted pregnancies to be carried to term and made that very clear in the last election.

    The GOP also does not believe in democracy and wishes to only have their voices heard in terms of voting.
