Why Labor Day?

What about producers who produce much greater value than raw labor, which can easily be replaced by machines, robots, or if need be, by trained apes? What about artists, architects, engineers, scientists, industrialists, businessmen, and capitalists?

Happy Producer Day!

Dictatorship: Local and Express

Speaking of ugliness and school violence, on a related note this article asks: "Do School Uniforms Make Better Students?"

No, but they make better fascists.

"President Clinton championed uniforms as a way to keep schools orderly and disciplined."

Sure thing. No surprise here. Of course a communist must love stomping out individuality in the name of order and discipline.

But did nobody tell him that blowjobs are usually illegal in totalitarian states? The typical attitude of a moon bat power luster: Blowjobs for me, order and discipline for my peons.

"I enjoy it, actually," says Altuner, while conceding she's never known any other way. "If I didn't wear uniforms, I'd probably be stressing every morning (about what to wear) — with girls, it's always a competition."

Eradicating competition — another ancient moon bat aim. Of course, fashion is often ludicrous, and not always beautiful. The reason is that many people are irrational and follow mindless fads instead of defining beauty for themselves.

But making everybody equally ugly by forcing them into uniforms is not the answer. You might as well become a punk, rebelling against the concept of beauty itself.

More than 55 percent of public schools already enforce a strict dress code, according to federal statistics. Increasing concerns about gang activity, test scores and community perception all play into the decision to take the next step.

Of course, the time-tested way to fight amateur gangs is founding a gang of professional thugs.

The fascists themselves admit that much:

"Here they'll be part of the biggest gang around — the school gang," Jackson says.

Another fascist declares:

"…it's an opportunity for schools to create a positive culture. 'We're a part of something that is bigger than we are.' "

That's the root of the problem: The idea that there's anything bigger than the individual is the most lethal anti-concept those cavemen ever came up with. It's the cause of every war, every dictatorship, and every horror in human history.

Fascism, communism, collectivism, any ism is no positive culture. It's lethal. The two fascists running for president ought to take note.

This may be local, but the next stop sure is Hitler Youth. Or rather, McCain Youth or Osama Youth. Oops, Obama Youth.

The Cause of School Shootings

Wonder why there are school shootings today while there don't seem to have been any until some decades ago?

Is it that there are so much more guns? No, there aren't.

Is it that guns are easier to get hold of? No, they aren't.

Is it that these days children don't get spanked and don't get brought up to be little fascists? No, how can bringing up kids to be murderous jingoists counter school violence? How can treating children like the human beings they are, deserving liberty and dignity, cause school violence?

Maybe back in the wing nuts' "good old days" children had the discipline to kill only when sicked on another army by the proper authorities? And these days they individualistically kill whomever they feel like?

No, there's only one reason, and only today's moon bat induced hoplophobia can blind the majority to the obvious.

This gentleman's got the answer pinned down:

"When the federal government started making schools gun-free zones, that's when all of these shootings started," Thweatt said. "Why would you put it out there that a group of people can't defend themselves? That's like saying 'sic 'em' to a dog."

Hear! Hear!

The Difference between Pretty and Ugly

Did you ever wonder what's the difference between pretty and ugly?

Well, you can be pretty ugly, but not ugly pretty.

Buffy, the Last Hope of Mankind

According to The Daily Telegraph, young English (or British? or limey? what's the politically correct term these days?) women are leaving churches in droves. Apparently, they're inspired by TV's Buffy, the Vampire Slayer to try and satisfy their spiritual needs by way of Wicca.

Looks like there's still hope for mankind. If you truly believe you do need religion in your life, Wicca is probably as good as it gets.

"An it harm none, do what ye will." It doesn't get much better.

Chinese Mummy Is All Greek to Me

Brendan Fraser looks much too young to have a grown son! Otherwise, it's business as usual in mummy land. The plot remains the same, only now it's in Chinese. Formula fiction, like a thriller by Clive Cussler (the guy who's been writing the same book over and over again for twenty years now).

Apart from that, if you enjoy totally mindless action movies as much as I do, you'll love The Mummy: Tomb of the Dragon Emperor. Well, maybe not totally mindless. I guess "Freedom! Freedom! Freedom!" and "Welcome to the twentieth century!" is about as close as you get to getting ideas into this sort of movie.

In the end, Evy's brother Jonathan (John Hannah) flees in despair to what he believes is mummy-free territory: "Goodbye Shanghai. Peru, here I come!"

Wanna guess where the next Mummy movie will be set?

Dagny Taggart Takes Off

Even in a hostile environment of ridiculous "security" regulations and government-run airports and air traffic control, US Airways demonstrates that a well-run airline can offer great service.
