  • Malvo and the War Debate (ZOT!!! Why not to go off antipsychotic meds without a doctor’s guidance)

    I am curious why none of the media covers the most important aspect of the Malvo shootings. If you look at Newspapers on the dates when the shootings are underway you discover something I find quite interesting. The shootings begin to dominate the news the day before the debate on the Iraq war starts and they catch them the day after the declaration of war??? If you ask most people "do you remember the debate about starting the second Iraq war", they will all answer "yes of course". But if you followup with the question "name one point in the...

    I recently received a reply to a post that stated: "This should be beneath a "freeper". Sad." So I asked.. what is it that makes a FReeper? My reply (and I will admit was tasteless) was also questioning. It stirred controversy and was removed? Why Moderators? Can you not tell me? Did it not meet with your "FReeper" mentality? According to all posted guidelines it should be listed but no, you chose to delete it. Yes.. I'm the first one IBTZ, I'm sure you'll nick me for speaking up..

    President Bush will land in a hotbed of the illegal-immigration debate Monday when he flies into Orange County, and he's likely to find a tough sell for his approach. Bush's call for a guest-worker program has riled many who say that the international borders must be secured before normalizing the status of any of the estimated 12 million illegal immigrants in the United States. When Bush stands up at the Hyatt Regency Irvine to pitch his views on immigration to the Orange County Business Council, some will applaud his decision to talk here - if not what he's pushing. "I'd...

    There was a crackdown Wednesday and dozens of illegal immigrants were arrested. Many of those same immigrants were released just hours later It was the last thing they, and their families, expected. "They are not criminals. All they're here for is to work for their family," said Mariz Gomez. And that's what they were doing making wooden pallets at two different locations when federal agents swooped in and took nearly 70 suspected undocumented workers to this federal detention center in north Houston. "Just for them to come in here and to just throw them back to where they go. That's...

Their workers actually show up for work. Imagine that! They have an average daily absentee rate of 2%. Up in Michigan, Buchanan country, the average daily absentee rate in a union auto factory is 10% to 12%. But let’s bring this back in the name of economic patriotism. -snip-

    WASHINGTON - More teachers, it seems, are ready to leave their schools behind. Forty percent of public school teachers plan to exit the profession within five years, the highest rate since at least 1990, according to a study being released Thursday. The rate is expected to be even greater among high school teachers, half of whom plan to be out of teaching by 2010, according to the National Center for Education Information. Retirement is the dominant factor, as the public teaching corps is aging fast, say surveys of teachers in kindergarten through grade 12. In 1996, 24 percent of teachers...

    WASHINGTON: And now here comes Outsourcing, the movie. Don't forget the comma in that previous sentence. Hollywood will take stab at the practice of outsourcing to India as seen through the eyes of an American writer. Universal Pictures has just bought the film rights to an Esquire article titled "My Outsourced Life" by A.J.Jacobs, a scribe whose off the wall feats include reading the 33-volume, 44-million word Encylopoedia Britannica end-to-end. "Jacobs, Esquire's editor-at-large, wrote the outsourcing article after he discovered that he could farm out almost everything in his life to India, from ordering his food to fighting with his...

    As Poles take jobs, bitterness in Germany By Carter Dougherty International Herald Tribune WEDNESDAY, APRIL 27, 2005 FRANKFURT The new Europe only arrived last year, but Boris Ried is already pining for the familiar old version. Ludwig Ried & Sohn, a Frankfurt tile-laying company in its fourth generation, needs to charge €43.65, or $56.72, an hour to make ends meet, said Ried, its general manager. But the enlargement of the European Union, which has brought to Frankfurt hundreds of Poles who are willing to work for half that, may now do what depression and war could not, he fears: put...
  • Communism and human nature (Bolshie Mod sez, Arise ye kittens of the earth!)

    04/05/2005 10:50:57 AM PDT · by Sammy sam · 153 replies · 8,234+ views
    Many argue that communism will never be possible because of "human nature". The essence of this false argument is the belief that a communist society would consist of an all-powerful central government that would tell everybody what to do--and would therefore undermine the creative initiative of individuals and the search for happiness. • This argument is based on two false assumptions: (1) It assumes that a communist society will look like the former Soviet Union, or the current China, North Korea, etc (ie: corrupt police states with a feudal-style ruling class) (2) It assumes that people will only work in...
