Via JMG: Trader Dumps Hundreds Of McDonald's Job Applications On OWS Protesters

A member of the Chicago Board of Trade yesterday dumped hundreds of McDonald's job applications on the Occupy Wall Street protesters. Two weeks ago employees of the CBOT mocked protesters by posting the message "We Are The 1%" in their office windows. Wanna bet somebody steps this up pretty quick?

Wednesday, November 2, 2011


While waiting for a ride to the airport, I heard whistles.  The city is silent, with an occasional very sad church bell, today is All Souls Day, and flowers are being sold and taken to cemeteries... so this came as quite a contrast...

Via JMG: Harold Camping Is Sorry You're Not Dead

Harold Camping would like to sincerely apologize that Jeebus did not kill you as he predicted.
In a message posted on his network's website, the 90-year-old Camping says, "When it comes to trying to recognize the truth of prophecy, we're finding that it is very, very difficult." Camping also apologizes for saying last May that people who didn't believe his prophecy that Christians would be taken up to heaven in the rapture on May 21 probably were not saved. Camping says, "We're ready to cry out and weep before God: `Oh Lord, you have the truth, we don't have it."'
Some of Camping's followers sold all their possessions in order fund his rapture billboard campaign, which was seen in many cities including New York.

Via JMG: GOP Ensures Job Creation By Forcing Religious Slogans Onto Public Buildings

Jobs! Jobs! Jo...oh wait. JESUS comes first in the United Christianist States of Theocracy.
Nobody has proposed changing the national motto, but the House is set Tuesday to vote on a bill that assure that the phrase “In God We Trust” stays put. The measure, which is sponsored by Rep. Randy Forbes (R-Va.), would encourage public buildings, schools and government facilities to display the phrase. It declares that “In God We Trust” and sentiments behind it have been an “integral” part of the United States, and “in times of national challenge or tragedy, the people of the United States have turned to God as their source for sustenance, protection, wisdom, strength, and direction.”
RELATED: "In God We Trust" was adopted as the national motto in 1956, two years after the Catholic Church affiliated Knights of Columbus successfully lobbied Congress to add the words "under God" to the Pledge of Allegiance. One month after the change to the Pledge was made, "In God We Trust" was mandated to be posted on paper currency.

Via JMG: Herman Cain: China Wants Nukes!

During his appearance on Sunday's PBS Newshour, Herman Cain raised the specter of China gaining access to nuclear weapons. Unfortunately for him, they've had them for 47 years.
Woodruff began the interview asking whether China was “a potential military threat to the United States” in Cain’s eyes. Cain answered in the affirmative, and responded that in order to neutralize the threat, he would “outgrow China” economically. Then he noted that the threat was assuaged significantly by the fact that “we already have superiority in terms of our military capability.” “I plan to get away from making cutting our defense a priority,” he noted, stating his motto as “peace through strength and clarity.” He then turned to the threat he saw he would need to stop: “they’ve indicated that they’re trying to develop nuclear capability and they want to develop more aircraft carriers like we have.”
Run, Forrest, run!
