"On Sunday afternoon, May 23, 2010, author, scriptwriter and ex-Baltimore Sun reporter, Rafael Alvarez, read one of his favorite essays, “Where Book Lovers Settle Between Covers.” He had written it a few years back while working for the Sun. Later, he signed copies of his newest book, “Storyteller," which is a combination of his fiction; and essays and newspaper articles. One of Mr. Alvarez’s previous works of fiction, “Orlo and Leini,” was labeled by Publishers Weekly as “a rare treat that even those with a nonadventurous palate will find delectable.” The event took place at the Crystal Moll Gallery, in Federal Hill, in Baltimore, MD. Ms. Moll, who is also an artist, served as the hostess for the reading and introduced Mr. Alvarez."

On Sunday afternoon, May 23, 2010, author Deborah Rudacille read from her new nonfiction book, “Roots of Steel: Boom and Bust in an American Mill Town.” It’s the moving saga of Sparrows Point, a company town and steelmaking plant, once owned and operated by Bethlehem Steel. In its heyday, the plant employed about 36,000 employees. The event took place at the Crystal Moll Gallery, in Federal Hill, in Baltimore, MD. Ms. Moll, who is also an artist, served as the hostess for the reading and introduced Ms. Rudacille. “Kirkus Reviews” said of Ms. Rudacille’s tome, “An affecting portrait of decaying loop on the Rust Belt...[She] has delivered a book that would do Studs Terkel proud, partaking of his oral-historical approach to the past, at turns, imbued with pro-Labor spirit throughout.”
This Rand Paul does not represent the American people, he represents a fascist movement more right wing, more pro war, more pro corporate, and pro police state than the Neocons who left America a hollowed out shell of a country.
For any democracy, fascism is a form of corporate cancer for which, the cure must be radical and immediate or that country will quickly fall. We have but to look at Germany a democracy, which fell to fascism under Adolph Hitler. These tea party people don't give a damn about the environment or freedom except when it comes to corporate freedom. And when they say they want to turn the clock back to a time of earlier American values, they mean the time of the Robber barons when 98% of Americans lived in poverty without public education, Social Security, or a minimum wage and there were no laws to protect people in the work place. America was a Hell, it only became better because we as a people made it better.
The 'tea party' isn’t about making America better for the people. If you didn't like the Bush regime cutting social programs established to help the people, well get ready for that and much more under the tea party. Try the total privatization, elimination, of Social Security wherein it is handed over to the very banks who are presently looting our country into collapse. What, you don't like the endless wars and torture? Well, get ready for brutal heavy handed all out fascist high profit privatized war against the world. Don’t like the price of food and gasoline? Those things are provided by corporations which are very important to the tea party, therefore they must make a good profit. The cost of necessities will double and double again under the pro corporate teas.
Yes I’m afraid it's out of the frying pan and into the fire for the poor American people unless they wake up to what fascism is: the melding of state and corporate power over the people. Pro corporate nationalism, anti environmentalism, and anti civil rights, are values that are absolutely wrong for the people and the planet. Part 1 RACHEL MADDOW V RAND PAUL - (This Is Awesome!)

This terrorizing and brutalizing of the people by the police happens often in America, but there is rarely anyone around with a video camera to record it. In some states like Maryland, its a felony to videotape the police while they are beating the hell out of someone. The bullying of the American people by the various police departments across the country continues unabated and the police are rarely if ever disciplined for their actions. This is only possible because the police are carrying out the will of the government. The continued state brutality against the people sends the wrong message to a so-called 'free people' living in a so-called 'democracy'. But if its not a democracy, and its the intent of the government to terrorize the citizenry then these seemingly senseless beatings and tazerings serve the purpose of conditioning the public to accept tyranny and cruelty without limit from their government. This is how a totalitarian fascist state breaks the will and spirit of it’s people, so that if or when it becomes necessary to herd them into concentration camps, the people will not resist and will go quietly to their deaths, being to fearful of authority to fight back. Therefore, with the proper conditioning of a population it becomes possible for a very small number of people to control and kill that population. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fNGctzzl8JE&feature=related | http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=m01Q6RIApx0 | http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-Dik-mgCDcg | http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fizo-sOSE6o&NR=1 | http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3hjcHjN7Fe8 | http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=84wJagr5arI | http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RC8TnIYfAhk
