Hey, Firefly fans - tomorrow (Sept 20) is Unification Day

Here's Wikipedia on Firefly's Unification Day:

Unification Day is a holiday celebrated in the fictional universe of the science-fiction television series Firefly. It marks the day in which the Alliance forces defeated the resistance ("Browncoats") in the Unification War.

"The Train Job", the second episode of the series (although Fox originally aired it before the pilot episode "Serenity"), opens with Mal, Zoe, and Jayne in a bar during a Unification Day celebration. Malcolm's brown coat and his disinterest in celebrating Unification Day lead to a brawl.

Unification Day is a holiday mentioned in the backstory of the television series Firefly. According to Nathan Fillion (Mal), the holiday is on September 20th.

There's also a Facebook page.

    4. Ain't lookin' to start another war. If you want a fight, I suggest you head to the closest Alliance-friendly bar, dong ma? I'll be the sailor with the brown coat and the big gun.

    5. To the first Anonymous: Did you ever even watch the show? Do you know what Fascism is? And how does standing up for the individual Liberties and limited government that are spelled out in the US Constitution equate to Fascism?

    6. All liberals are fascists but don't know it.

  2. Part of the problem is that fascism is confused with Nazism. Socialism/communism wants the government to own all means of production. Fascism allows for private ownership but the government controls everything. For the common good, of course.

    1. Fascists are socialists who realize that they like guns after all.

    2. Nah, that doesn't fit. Show me a socialist who doesn't love guns as long as the government (i.e. them) is the ones pointing them at the people. As for the more violent form of socialist, the communist, Stalin himself said "Political power comes from the end of a gun." so we know they love guns.

      The difference really does seem to be fascists are content to leave the means of production in private hands so long as those hands are in bed with The Party and willing to do what they are told.

  3. .

    We're an anarcho-syndicalist commune. We take it in turns to act as a sort-of-executive officer for the week. But all the decisions of that officer have to be ratified at a special biweekly meeting. By a simple majority, in the case of purely internal affairs, but by a two thirds majority, in the case of more . . .

    1. Listen, strange women lyin' in ponds distributin' swords is no basis for a system of government. Supreme executive power derives from a mandate from the masses, not from some farcical aquatic ceremony.

    2. Sounds more like those OWS loons, sitting in the park with all the quirky hand signals.

    3. "Sounds more like those OWS loons, sitting in the park..."

      Bingo. "Anonymous" appears to be a stellar example of the public education system's intent. 'Up is down', 'left is right' and 'socialism and fascism are polar opposites'. Strutting ignorance, backed by the moral authority of Jon Stewart.

    4. Witt's End: that was hilarious. I don't even think we're on the same page, but hell with it: super funny.
