The F-word - Again

I've been reading of Barack Obama's latest suggestions - particularly for a civilian "security force" - and feel the oncoming chill of the F-word.

I mean Fascism.

Now, I know that to throw around the N-word - Nazi - is a major faux pas on the 'net. Likewise, the F-word is similarly taboo.

But, in this case, no other word is appropriate.

Roger's Rules (Pajamamedia.com)
hits it on the nailhead. Obama is pushing for a
civilian national security force that’s just as powerful, just as strong, just as well-funded
as the US military. Roger asks the right questions:
Whom or what would such a security force police? Whom would they protect? Whom would they intimidate?


Here's what they'd look like - the civilian force of its time.
