Every year on this day, I re-read the threads on 3 websites that kept me informed on September 11, 2001. I think this an important tradition for a few reasons - to mourn for our fallen, to be reminded regularly that we as a nation piss a lot of people off all around the world, and to also be reminded that we have a great unity within us. When faced with a common foe, we stop being anything but Americans. It didn't last long, and it didn't lead to the great things it could've, but we had that spark - that common fire - for a while and we can get it back if we really want to. We can do great things with it if we really want to. We can learn from our past if we really want to.

There is much to be mourned on this day, and much to be remembered.

So... fireworks were yesterday. How many of you found scenes just like these?

Some are harsh, and some are just... stupid.

Political parties in the US are pointing fingers at each other but while the various global stock markets are acting quite volatile, people and countries keep investing in US Treasury Bonds. And the rates remain low. Why? Look at this chart.

Are America's Best Days Behind Us? Sad as it is to say, I figure this country to be bankrupt inside of the next 9 years, if not in 2013.

From CNN Commentator Roland Martin:
"What has been fascinating and demoralizing to watch is the clear and unmistakable religious bigotry that has taken over this conversation...the early American settlers left nations to escape religious persecution."

Puerto Rico is getting closer to becoming a state, and the American empire shows no signs of checking its growth - naturally, the problem arises of how we can cram more stars into our flag. A mathematician shows how to fix that.

If you have nobody to offer remembrance to on this Memorial day, take a moment to honor those who remember for us.

I choose the topic 'America', because only in America could gas prices go down while oil is going up.

We also lack all social grace. And are increasingly rude.

First there was the declaration that April is Confederate History Month. (Forget that the south seceded to preserve slavery, um, I mean states rights.)

Then comes the assertion that the confederacy was a bunch of terrorists. This is an item of much debate, and by definition not really true (I think).
But what's with the whole The South Will Rise Again thing?

Apparently, Efforts to rehabilitate the Southern rebellion frequently come at moments of racial and social stress.

As reported recently, the DoD directed its agents that all forms of protest should be considered low-level terrorism. The ACLU jumped their shit for it, and they have now retracted the statement and reminded their employees that they're Americans.

...or is it?

Antiterrorism training materials used by the Department of Defense teach that public protests should be regarded as "low-level terrorism," according to a letter of complaint sent to the department by the American Civil Liberties Union of Northern California.

Former Dead Kennedys frontman Jello Biafra wrote a pretty solid manifesto of where we are and what needs doing in an open letter to the president-elect via the change.gov site. Compelling read.
