When are these bozo Christians going to realize that since they don’t riot, kill and burn, no one cares if they’re offended.
Holy Week Angst Over Naked Chocolate Jesus, Sculpture By Cosimo Cavallaro To Debut At Gallery In NYC – CBS News
(AP) The Easter season unveiling of a milk chocolate sculpture of Jesus Christ, dubbed “My Sweet Lord” by its creator, left a sour taste Thursday in the mouths of a Catholic group infuriated by the anatomically correct confection.
“This is one of the worst assaults on Christian sensibilities ever,” said Bill Donohue, head of the watchdog Catholic League. “It’s not just the ugliness of the portrayal, but the timing — to choose Holy Week is astounding.”
Maybe if the Catholics would behead someone on TV people would start taking them more seriously.
Scotsman.com News – International – Mugabe gets backing, but neighbours call for changes
In a communique issued at the end of the meeting, the 14 countries of the Southern African Development Community called for an end to all economic sanctions against Zimbabwe and expressed their solidarity with the government of Mr Mugabe.
They also took up one of Mr Mugabe’s long-standing causes, calling on the British government to compensate white farmers whose land his government has seized.
They don’t discriminate. They are against all tyrants, as long as they’re not black. They all agree that everything is the fault of the White Debils.
JURIST – Paper Chase: Texas governor signs ‘shoot first’ law
Texas Governor Rick Perry [official website] Tuesday signed into law [press release] a new so-called “shoot first” law [SB 378 materials], which allows state residents to use deadly force to respond to threats in their homes, cars, and at jobs. The bill, also known as a “stand your ground” law, was approved by large majorities in both houses of the Texas Legislature.
Somehow I doubt that “Shoot First” is the name of the law used by the supporters. It sounds more like a name used in press release from an anti-gun group.
But this is an impartial web site covering legal news and research. Isn’t it?
I rather think that this tells you all you need to know about this site.
Senate votes to keep timber aid program
No. The Senate voted to surrender in Iraq and the “timber aid” (which doesn’t benefit timber workers at all) is just a bribe for voting a certain way. It doesn’t matter whether the offer was from Harry Reid or Vito Corleone. It was still a sellout.
It’s rather amusing to watch how the O treats this timber bill. They are pretending that it is being supported on its own merits instead of being the blatant pork for votes scam that it is.
Hillary is proving that the “1984” add had a point.
Dems talk up health care – Newsday.com
LAS VEGAS – Hillary Rodham Clinton exhorted Democrats yesterday to make universal health care the “No. 1” issue in 2008, hoping to transform what was once her most humiliating political failure into a theme that catapults her to the presidency.
She didn’t shy away from supporting mandates that employers offer insurance, which galvanized opposition to her original plan in the 1990s.
“And people are going to have to take better care of themselves,” she added. “We cannot afford all the illness that folks are bringing on themselves. … We need to start working on that, myself included.”
This brings to mind this C.S. Lewis quote.
Of all tyrannies, a tyranny exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It may be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron’s cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end, for they do so with the approval of their own conscience.
Remember. Every tyrant from Caesar to Robespierre to Mao and Pol Pot have all justified their deeds by claiming that it was for the good of the many. If Hillary didn’t scare you before, she certainly should now. And if she doesn’t, then you must be one of the ones sitting on the benches in that commercial.
It is frightening to think that we have gone from ” government of the people, by the people, for the people” to “people are going to have to take better care of themselves…We need to start working on that” and many people are just fine with that.
A NOTICE TO THE ISLAMIC FASCISTS
You now realize that you can advance your radical Islamist goals throughout the Middle East, and perhaps into Europe, without any fear of retaliation or interference from the United States. The will to fight is lost. The desire for victory has died. The American people have become fat, lazy and complacent. They no longer see either their freedom or their culture as something they are willing to fight for. It must be heady days indeed in your caves and tents. Hard to imagine, isn’t it? Al Qaeda actually has more determination to see their cause through than the great United States of America! Perhaps that’s because you’re dedicated to the cause of the spread of Islam, while the American people have lost their dedication to the cause of liberty. Complacency will do that to you.
I have no idea of what the Democrats are going to say when other countries quit taking us seriously because we have shown that we will not stand up to them.
Oh. That;s right. The Democrats are in charge now. That means the economy will never ever be bad again. Unless, of course, the Republicans regain control, in which case the economy will never be good again.
But that’s never going to happen.So they can just increase spending without a worry. If they come up short they can just threaten to cut the police or schools unless the citizens agree to a tax increase.
Wishing on a surplus, Portland City Council dreams big
Thanks to the rebounding economy, Portland government may soon expand to cover a range of new services the city’s founding fathers could never have imagined.
Yes, city workers will still police the streets, fight fires, mow park lawns, provide clean water and make dirty water clean.
But if City Council members and bureau managers get their way in ongoing budget talks, taxpayers also may find themselves training birth coaches for low-income women, building a day center for homeless people, paying for parenting classes for African American moms and dads, and offering career counseling to prostitutes trying to get off the street.
Pajamas Media: RNC Told To Hang Onto the Hard Drive:
The Republican National Committee and chairman of George W. Bush’s 2004 campaign have been ordered to preserve all e-mails related to White House business due to suspicion that Bush officials used their political non-governmental e-mail accounts to conduct business they didn’t want on record.
The Clinton’s knew how to deal with things like this.
Browner exonerated in document destruction.
U.S. District Judge Royce C. Lamberth this week held the Environmental Protection Agency in contempt for destroying electronic documents in violation of a court order issued as a result of a Freedom of Information Act request.
Lamberth exonerated former EPA director Carol Browner, former general counsel Gary Guzy and former deputy director W. Michael McCabe of the contempt charges sought by Landmark.
So wipe those hard drives and smile as the Democrats screw themselves into the floor.
The Democrats are in full McCarthy show trial mode. If it were an honest inquiry then maybe is would make sense to talk to them. Henry Waxman’s treatment of Victoria Toensing made that obvious to everyone.
They’re not looking for “the truth” or anything close to it. They’re looking for anything that they can spin into a “scandal”.
Better to take the Fifth than to join Scooter Libby in being sacrificed for the Congressional soundbite.
