Karl Marx wishes you a happy Labor Day:
"Constitutionally, there are no "national holidays" in the United States because Congress only has authority to create holidays for federal institutions (including federally owned properties) and employees, and for the District of Columbia. Instead, there are federal holidays, state holidays, city holidays, and so on." ~wikipedia.org

German Weimar Republic in the early 1920s and the U.S. - Troubling similarities
"There's a possibility of something similar (but not as severe) happening in the U.S. - we'd rather at least mention it than not.
The parallel to the German war reparations is the derivatives area today."

The entire debate centered around the heavy burden, moral obligation and distinct responsibility which the United Kingdom would shoulder, as a leading, exceptional and exemplary world power, in response to a flagrant violation of the acceptable “rules of war” resulting in crimes against humanity. Some members wanted to strike immediately to send an unequivocally strong message to Assad, others wanted to wait for further clarification of the facts on the ground before commencing military action, and still others insisted that a political solution remained the best option.
Since 2007, Under the Hemispheres Project, the DEA has paid AT&T to maintain database of all customers phone call metadata going back to 1987.
The New York Times reports that it obtained training slides from an anti war activist who was using FOIA requests to research infiltration of peace groups by the FBI/DEA. Slides instruct officers to conspire:
"All requestors are instructed to never refer to Hemisphere in any official document,” one slide says. A search of the Nexis database found no reference to the program in news reports or Congressional hearings."
Now Official: NSA Can Commandeer Your Business Into a Mass Surveillance Tool, Illegal for You to Stop ThemSubmitted by RobHino on Mon, 09/02/2013 - 15:56
If there's any confirmation that the U.S. government has commandeered the Internet for worldwide surveillance, it is what happened with Lavabit earlier this month.
From the NY Times:
A reader emails:
Why is it that Rothbard was okay with police torturing suspected criminals? I was shocked to read that. I understand there’s some qualifiers like: Only in cases where the “punishment fits the crime” and the police would be subject to arrest if the suspect was innocent.
When he speaks of Rothbard being “okay” with police torturing criminal suspects, he is referring to the following passage from Chapter 12 of The Ethics of Liberty:
Did You Know? They Had A Plan For More Than A Year Already : "Rebuilding Syria After Assad" ... No Kidding.Submitted by Cyril on Mon, 09/02/2013 - 05:20
Yup, no kidding...
... If you can stomach it :
One of the things I wanted the Tea Party and the Patriot movement to do when a new congress came into session in 2013 is to find a viable replacement for Speaker of the House. The present person holding the office has not carried out his constitutional duties in the people’s house. The leadership of the House of Representatives should reflect the will of the people and not the agenda of special interest. It has nothing to do with him being a crybaby. But it does not help with having any public confidence either.
Apparently Obama cares more about perceptions of his 'base' than originally thought. He is postponing the strikes, while still claiming (unConstitutionally, I might add) that he has the authority to strike. Discontent within his own party, as well as world-wide disapproval from allies in Europe to allies in the UN (Ban ki Moon) may also been influential in his most recent retreat.
A leading skeptic of U.S. intervention in conflicts abroad said Sunday that that he believes there is only a “50/50″ chance that the GOP-controlled House will vote to authorize the use of U.S military force in the Syria.
“I think it’s at least 50/50 whether the House will vote down involvement in the Syrian war,” Sen. Rand Paul of Kentucky said on NBC’s Meet the Press.
“I think the Senate will rubber stamp what [Obama] wants but I think the House will be a much closer vote,” he added. “And there are a lot of questions we have to ask.”

Several weeks ago, I covered how Krugmang and his Keynesian army are clueless about their biggest mistake:
You see, Krugman views the economy as if it were a giant lab experiment. Economics, in his world, is treated like a physical science, such as chemistry. Turn a few knobs here, adjust a few metrics there, tweak some mathematical models elsewhere, and presto!
The fact that the populations of many parts of Eastern and Southeast Asia have traditionally been slim while consuming a high carbohydrate diet, typically rich in white rice is often considered as a ‘Asian Paradox’ by advocates and followers of carbohydrate restricted Low-Carb, Paleo and Primal type diets who hypothesize that such a dietary pattern promotes weight gain.
