Obama and the Robot

"I, for one, welcome our new robot overlords."

Japan’s obsession with robots is going to doom us all. This is how Skynet begins, with a friendly game of robot soccer. Drudge and some conservative sites are trying to make much of the fact that Obama bowed to the robot, but the robot bowed to him in greeting, so it seems like a reasonable [Read More...]

The Congressional Stenographer and the Holy Spirit UPDATED

reidy

When I first heard that a congressional stenographer had grabbed a microphone and started ranting about Masonic conspiracies on the floor of the House, I assumed she’d had some sort of mental break. That’s always a safe guess when people deviate from the script in public, and it wasn’t helped by the lack of clear [Read More...]

HealthCare.gov In Three Images

So first my screen was all like… And then it was all like… And then I was all like… Here’s something you should know: I.T. is not frigging rocket science. It’s no cakewalk to create a system for a nationwide program based on a law so complex no one who voted for it ever read [Read More...]

Sweet sweet poetic justice. As I get put through the wringer over changes this asshole and his asshole supporters forced on us (we just lost [Read More...]

Not far from where I live, the Diocese of Camden (New Jersey) just lost 6 acres from one of their cemeteries in a government land grab under eminent domain, and for far less than the asking price or the assessment: New Jersey invoked eminent domain to grab the land for a highway project, and offered the [Read More...]

Planned Parenthood is the Right Hand of Satan

“Dear mommy, please vote yourself the right to kill me.” Perhaps the sickest ad of a sick election season, in which the “products of conception” (to use the “choice” movement’s terminology) beg mommy for the right to get rid of any potential little brothers or sisters. Nothing like having cute little moppets who managed to [Read More...]

Archbishop Chaput on Hard Choices, Money, Sexual Abuse, Politics, and More

John Allen does a long and interesting interview with Archbishop Chaput. Absolutely first-rate stuff from both subject and writer. The section on politics is going to get the most play in the media, but you should read all of it to get a sense of one of the great bishops of our time. We’re speaking [Read More...]
