Fascism is recognized to have first been officially developed by Benito Mussolini, who came to power in Italy in 1922. To sum up fascism in one word would be to say "anti-liberalism".

...............Socialism and Democracy. Political doctrines pass; peoples remain. It is to be expected that this century may be that of authority, a century of the "Right," a Fascist century."

Dedicated to the SNOWFIGHTERS of the MDOT

On State roads you can feel safe. A State employee has been keeping the road clear while it snows.

I met a man called Greg and I learned why I can feel safe on a snowy State highway. He explained to me that these drivers are on call, all winter, ready to plow all winter season.

No extra pay just part of the job. I figured, what the heck, they took a plowing job and they live in Maine.

Then I heard about having more and more miles to plow every year, not enough drivers. The State has decided that they will just keep on plowing.

These drivers can plow for eight, twelve, even thirty six hours.

Once their day "ends" at midnight they are back on straight time until they finish another eight hour shift. If they worked 24 hours on Monday, on Tuesday at midnight they are back on straight time.

The State says it is a NEW DAY, I bet it doesn't feel like a new day to these drivers. They lose their overtime and the State knows that this will force them into staying when they should go home. The drivers can decide to go home after 15 hours and if you have the wrong supervisor they will call you back an hour later.

It is warm now, no snow, but next winter I will remember the drivers that are keeping me safe.
Thank you, and I hope you stay safe.

  1. Yeah sure, and then they just lay around all summer doing nothing like the teachers. They wanted to plow snow and their wonderful union lets this happen to them! Why don't they just lay em off all summer and save the salaries?
