    Labor Day should be replaced with some other holiday. Maybe Patriot’s day to commemorate 9-11.

    Great song! God willing, our politicians WILL hear the voices of the American people this November, and a bunch of them will be going home to do something besides shaft us.

    Funny how JFK, at least fiscally, would be more in line with the Republican Party of today.

    They need to add funemployment day. And then welfare day.

    I mean, it’s unfair to the funemplayed and welfare careerists to just celebrate labor day, no?

    @ Bob in Breckenridge:

    That is a good Idea. You’d never get the Democrats to do it. Hell, even the Republicans want us to forget 9-11. I refuse to do so. 9-11 will be with me until the day I die. Never forgive, never forget.

    Not Enough Labor Day
    How the government is destroying jobs

    Today, many Americans will be enjoying a respite from the incessant demands of their jobs. But many Americans will be wishing desperately they could trade the holiday for the incessant demands of a job. This year, given the state of the economy, Labor Day should be called Not Enough Labor Day.

    @ snork:

    You’ll get no arguement out of me on that. Remember, I am the one that put up the “Happy Hiroshima Day!” thread. America should be feared as an enemy. Our response to 9-11 wasn’t drastic enough. It looks like the Taliban are coming back in Afghanistan. The message is that you will pay if you hit us, but you can hit us hard and survive. I don’t think that message is conducive to World Peace in a world with Mohammedans.

    One of the most awe-inspiring sights in religion: Hundreds of thousands of Muslims gather at Mecca for Ramadan
    By Mail Foreign Service
    Last updated at 12:03 PM on 6th September 2010
    Comments (41) Add to My Stories They have come in their hundreds of thousands, all devout, converging on one of the world’s holiest places.

    This was the scene at the Grand Mosque in Mecca, the birthplace of Islam, yesterday as Muslims around the world celebrated Ramadan.

    The Grand Mosque houses the Kaaba, the most holy place in Islam, a square-shaped building that predates the religion itself. It is the Kaaba that Muslims around the world are facing when they pray towards Mecca.

    Hole? I’d call it the Temple of Elemental Evil, but that is already taken, and it makes the Pet Rock® seem more threatening than it is. Still, millions of Mohammedans all over the world are willing to kill people to force them to worship this Idol. I don’t really expect the MFM to be that blunt, but could the please quit sucking the Mohammedans dick? They wouldn’t refer to the Church of the Nativity as “one of the world’s holiest places”. Maybe if Christians were really as bad as the Left likes to pretend, we’d get more respect. That is something to ruminate on, isn’t it?

    I don’t know that I’d go that far. Insulting the enemy to make him angry is an old tactic in warfare. Sun Tzu recounts where a general was laying siege to a walled city. Instead of sending the traditional gifts of wines and meats (taking the “friendly enemies” thing a bit too far, IMHO), he snt jars of piss. This enraged the besieged so much he came out from behind his walls to slaughter the enemy that had so insulted him. Of course, this is exactly what they general wanted. He slaughtered him on the plain before the city and took the city. I don’t remember the exact names and places, but that is in the Art of War. Essential reading, IMHO :)

    So I was bored last night, wife out at dance class, I have been studying for my new job…yes I finally got hired after 1.5 years funemployed…thanks 52%! So I go see “The American,” with the idiot George Clooney. It had no political message though. But what a sloooooow movie. Sort of one of those artsy-fartsy movies, where strangely I could care less about any of the characters.

    Present day Hollywood could never make something like Casa Blanca, or Gone with the Wind. They have no concept of a great story, plus they have few actors that can carry it off, bunch of spoiled rotten liberal sissy’s.

    So before that sleeper-yawner they had previews and low and behold Sean Penn is coming out with a liberal orgasm of a movie about Valerie Plame and what a heroine she was and how Dick Cheney got her exposed as a spy, when the truth was, she was no spy, and a Liberal at the State Department (Richard Armitage) exposed her CIA secretary or janitor job…whatever, but at least Scooter Libby went to jail. Gah…. Hollywood will be making movies about the Bush admin while they hear the call to prayer echoing off the Hollywood Hills five times a day.

    The German Paul Revere has written a book. It is nice to see that someone in Europe is awake:

    In the book, Sarrazin says Europe’s top economy is being undermined, overwhelmed and made “more stupid” by poorly educated, fast-breeding, badly integrated and unproductive Muslim immigrants and their offspring.

    “If I want to hear the muezzin’s call to prayer, then I’ll go to the Orient,” he says, saying that allowing in millions of “guest workers” in the 1960s and 1970s was a “gigantic error.”

    He also says that Turkish and Kurdish “clans” have a “long tradition of inbreeding,” leading to higher rates of birth defects, and ponders whether this might be one reason for immigrants’ poor school performance, Spiegel said.

    It isn’t all good, unfortunately. Dude has the German disease:

    This and his comment to a newspaper that “all Jews share a certain gene”, critics say, is akin to the kind of pseudo-science used by the Nazis.

    Scratch a German, unmask an anti-Semite it seems. Still, he is spot on in his message about the Mohammedans. He is sounding a late warning for a nation that may have destroyed its culture. We can also listen to his warning. This, like France, is our future if we let the Mohammedans continue to immigrate unchecked. That is what they are trying to build in their “Little Somolia” in Middle Tennessee. Fortunately, the people are somewhat awake. They aren’t moving in without resistance.

    Several guaranteed money-making movies — the next James Bond and The Hobbit movies come to mind — have been “shelved” thanks to the idiocy of the studio execs to keep funding the trash hardly anyone wants to see.

    Anyone with some connections and an in with Hollywood could make a mint if they made some Vince Flynn novels into movies, or did an actual movie on Muslim Terrorism where we kick their barbarian stone-age asses back to the Arabian Peninsula. Day is coming where there will be some investors that make conservative-themed movies, and in 5 years they will own that town.

    Anyone made a movie of Elijah the Prophet with good special effects would break all records of any movie ever made, as long as you do it without the religious-faggy spirit and show Elijah like a gunslinger type, taking on the outlaw gang. Only he is a man that knows God, not religious, but actually can hear God, like you can hear a rap song from the thug in the car next to you at the red light.

    Yay BIG LABOR!!

    Congrats on your BIG DAY!

    And thanks for THIS:

    The crux of the problem is the gap between assets and liabilities affecting the fifty-nine pension funds that cover most public school teachers in America. Some of these are general state-employee pension funds, while others cover only teachers. Among the findings of our study of these funds:

    * All fifty-nine pension funds studied face shortfalls.
    * California, the most populous state, has the largest unfunded teacher pension liability: almost $100 billion.
    * The worst-funded plan in our sample is West Virginia’s, which we estimate to be only 31 percent funded.
    * Five plans are 75 percent funded or better: teacher-dedicated plans in the District of Columbia, New York State and Washington State and state employee retirement systems in North Carolina and Tennessee that include teachers.

    The general picture is not a good one. According to the fifty-nine funds’ own financial statements:

    * Total unfunded liabilities to teachers—i.e., the gap between existing plan assets and the present value of benefits accrued by plan participants—are $332 billion.

    According to our more conservative calculations:

    * These plans’ unfunded liabilities total about $933 billion.

    In addition, we have found that:

    * Only $116 billion, or less than one quarter, of this $600 billion discrepancy is attributable to the stock market drop precipitated by the 2007 financial crisis.
    * The Dow Jones Industrial Average would have to nearly double overnight to make up for the present underfunding of these plans

    .

    Revenge movie are cheap to make and nearly always make money. Think of the old Bronson “Death Wish” movies, or updated to the Punisher. Or the hit series on TV Dexter, about a serial killer, that just kills other serial killers. The reason such movies always do OK, and do very well in unjust times is because there is a pent up cry and demand for injustice to be remedied. Instinctively we all know that if the social compact has failed us in the execution of justice, then it devolves back to the individual to take matters into their own hands…this is known as blood law.
    Even God noted this in the beginning of the Human experiment when Cain killed Able, and God said to Cain, “Do you not know your brother’s blood cries out to me from the ground?” That is the reason that the attempt to build that Mosque at ground zero has aroused Americans like nothing else against Islam, that blood has not been avenged and cries out even now, and cries out even louder as the Muslims seek to cover that cry with their blasphemous Mosque on the souls they killed.

    Unfortunately, far too many Christian-themed movies aren’t well acted or directed, the stories aren’t as good as they could be, and the special effects tend to be pretty crappy. A lot of it is that they’re made by production companies on a shoestring budget.

    I’ve seen quite a few excellent movies that had less than a shoestring budget, the scripts were the key to that.

    Mass Extinction Threat: Earth on Verge of Huge Reset Button?

    Mass extinctions have served as huge reset buttons that dramatically changed the diversity of species found in oceans all over the world, according to a comprehensive study of fossil records. The findings suggest humans will live in a very different future if they drive animals to extinction, because the loss of each species can alter entire ecosystems.

    Some scientists have speculated that effects of humans -- from hunting to climate change -- are fueling another great mass extinction. A few go so far as to say we are entering a new geologic epoch, leaving the 10,000-year-old Holocene Epoch behind and entering the Anthropocene Epoch, marked by major changes to global temperatures and ocean chemistry, increased sediment erosion, and changes in biology that range from altered flowering times to shifts in migration patterns of birds and mammals and potential die-offs of tiny organisms that support the entire marine food chain.

    I know, but years ago it was not so, think of Ben Hur, or The Ten Commandments. Even Mel Gibson scored big with a treatment about the crucifixion, now imagine someone NOT anti Semitic, with cinematic skills and a real knowledge of ancient Jewish culture and history, and then have them do a movie of any of the prophets, especially Elijah, or how about a big screen epic of David? Get rid of the religious posing and play them as real people who simply had a relationship with the creator. Do not trivialize God or his purpose in such a movie, I am telling you it would kill at the box office. People are starving for REAL characters, and the timeless message of the struggle between good and evil, and the story of fail-able human beings empowered by the one who created all things, it is a message both sublime and powerful, it is THE message of all time.

    Both versions of Ben Hur — 1925 and 1959 — were done with the idea to bail out MGM from bankruptcy.

    The trivialization of religiosity between the versions is quite stark, the 1959 version making the story far less about Christ than the 1925 one, and far more secular than the source novel by Gen. Lew Wallace.

But a movie about David, Elijah, Solomon, Moses, or a more recent figure with a powerful impact on Christianity could be a huge success.

    What an absolute piece of shit! He wants to emphasize that he isn’t an American. That this American Day of Mourning and Rememberance doesn’t matter to him.

    I didn’t know there was an earlier version, very interesting, but it is typical of Western History, maybe all of history. God raises up new inventions to promulgate truth and man soon perverts that mechanism. Think of the first movable type printing press making Bibles, or how printing was instrumental for the American Revolution. Then think of it degrading to the NYT, or Hustler magazine.

    I think the internet was raised up by God for this time, for the dissemination of truth that has been boycotted by big media. Yet at the same time it is a force for real degeneracy in our current culture, fully half the male population is viewing pron, and pron will damage any relationship, just ask any counselor or pastor of any church what it has done to marriages.

    I agree, but lots of double talking p.c. wimps are saying he is going to hurt muzz delicate sensibilities and cause them to engage in murderous rampages around the world.

    They need to be insulted so they can get beyond their 7th century barbarism. They need to be poked, prodded, goaded, ridiculed, insulted, offended, affronted, mocked, disrespected just like the rest of us are on a daily basis.
    Giving the muzz special treatment and pretending they are better than everyone, in a protected class of their own, is a big disservice to them.

    UI in the ONT you linked to an article about Thilo Sarrazin and his possible anti-Semitism. There is no anti-Semitism in Sarrazin, he only referred to articles which were published in the MM like the NYT or the German newspaper “Sueddeutsche Zeitung” (SZ) or the German weekly “Der Spiegel” about studies which show that Jews share some genes. He asked for more Jews in Germany instead of Muslims because in his view Muslims -- contrary to Jews -- come mostly out of families where a formal education has low status.

    Btw: the same Jewish organizations which now shriek about Sarrazin’s statement about “Jewish genes” provide gene-tests on their web-sites for the “Jewish genes”.

    Multiculturalism with the muzz means the muzz are fast displacing all cultures but their own. They remind me of an alien species of ie fish that is let go in an environment to accomplish some goal, like eat algae but of course the plan goes dangerously wrong and the natural populations there are decimated by the invaders.

    Obama to Call for Major Infrastructure Spending

    WASHINGTON — Appealing to a union crowd on Labor Day, President Obama on Monday is calling for a $50 billion investment in long-term infrastructure projects that the administration claims will stimulate the flailing economy, create jobs and refill the exhausted highway trust fund
    .

    Though the infrastructure package is aimed at the next six years, the investment of $50 billion is intended to be a “front-loaded” expansion of the $814 billion stimulus package that emphasized shovel-ready projects.

    Ha ! This brings me to the point:

    The environmental movement in retreat

    The collapsing crusade for legislation to combat climate change raises a question: Has ever a political movement made so little of so many advantages? Its implosion has continued since “the Cluster of Copenhagen, when world leaders assembled for the single most unproductive and chaotic global gathering ever held.” So says Walter Russell Mead, who has an explanation: Bambi became Godzilla.

    That is, a small band of skeptics became the dogmatic establishment. In his Via Meadia blog, Mead, a professor of politics at Bard College and Yale, notes that “the greenest president in American history had the largest congressional majority of any president since Lyndon Johnson,” but the environmentalists’ legislation foundered because they got “on the wrong side of doubt.”

    Environmentalists, Mead argues, have forgotten their origins, which were in skeptical “reaction against Big Science, Big Government and Experts.” Environmentalists once were intellectual cousins of economic libertarians who heed the arguments of Friedrich Hayek and other students of spontaneous order — in society or nature. Such libertarians caution against trying to impose big, simple plans on complex systems. They warn that governmental interventions in such systems inevitably have large unintended, because unforeseeable, consequences.

    In the middle of the 20th century, Americans, impressed by the government’s mobilization of society for victory in World War II, were, Mead says, “intoxicated with social and environmental engineering of all kinds.” They had, for example, serene confidence that “urban renewal” would produce “model cities.” Back then, environmentalism was skepticism.
