“Masses are Terrible, because Most Priests are Terrible!”

tt

Okay, heinous language and a general sensitivity warning. If you are heinous language sensitive, or super-sensitive in general, don't watch this. You're warned. If you watch it anyway, and find yourself offended, please don't complain to me about it, because you've been warned.This brilliantly Irish rant of a routine was sent to me from a priest friend. I almost had a spasm from laughing. I'm not sure what sort of spasm, but I almost had one. Although I must say, our lovely Nigerian priests … [Read more...]

The Radical Religion of Abortion

Source: NewsweekWe hear a lot, particularly from the "new" atheists and their supporters, about the danger of religion, which--we are told--too often encourages a murderous fundamentalism. Such "tolerant" great thinkers as Rosie O' Donnell have suggested that "radical Christianity is just as threatening as radical Islam.”I am inclined to think that radical anything, by its very narrowness, must give one pause and that zealotry can too often stumble into something unthinking, and therefore o … [Read more...]

Sebelius cheers thugs & a GREAT photo essay

There is offensive language on this video, so if that bothers you, you are warned. To my way of thinking the physical violence is more offensive:Source: The indispensable Hot AirThe day after the attack on a fellow selling buttons and "Don't Tread on Me" flags (and which immediately preceded this event), Health Secretary Kathleen Sebelius held a conference call to the SEIU, during which she greeted her union "brothers and sisters" and said "keep doing what you're doing!"Culture of … [Read more...]

Iranians use Michael Jackson to get attention

The clever Iranians have figured out that the only way to get the attention of the press today is to do a Michael Jackson Merge, intersecting their story with his.More on the excessively pop-minded press by Francis Beckwith.If we could just get these Iranians freed up, maybe a few of them could teach us how to throw stones and stuff at this absurd rogue congress, before they completely destroy our own country with their fake climate bills that Obama has already promised will lead to … [Read more...]

Our freezing summer makes me gripe

It's freezing here; we can't swim, can't have the windows open. Every day is cold. It just convinces me more than ever that solar flares (or the lack of them) have more to do with the ever-changing climate of planet earth.And more resentful of policies, programs and restrictions put in our way, in service to the hoo-hah of Mr. Gore. And why this ticks me off, too. And this. And why not, anymore?I am most seriously unhappy today.The prescient satirical genius of Paddy ChayefskyIn … [Read more...]

Joyless Prudes & Panics

I'm sorry but I'm really starting to lose patience with these decorate nothing because it might offend someone and don't let kids dress up for thanksgiving because it might give offense or re-inforce an old narrative that needs "correction."These people prattling on and on, trying to render everything sterile in the name of "sensitivity" and "accuracy" give me a pain in the ass. One wonders - if these practices are so "demeaning" and detrimental to society - how these enlightened folks (who … [Read more...]

What's Wrong With the World, II

In a very interesting post that you'll want to ponder, House of Eratosthenes recalls this old post of mine. I think it is a really good question to revisit from time to time:As before: What's Wrong With The World in 100 Words or Less About 100 years ago, a British paper invited many writers to answer the same question, What’s Wrong With the World? They extended the invitation to G. K. Chesterton who wrote back:Dear Sirs; I am. Sincerely, G.K. ChestertonI will take his a … [Read more...]

The DC Nuke & the Saving Monks

Random Thoughts is writing about what is happening to her finances.No one has defended President Bush more than I have during his time in office. No one.But his signing the "bailout bill" that Nancy Pelosi, Harry Reid and the rest of them were giddy over this afternoon - it has stunned me. I know he had to do it. I know there were no choices, here. But I am still stunned.When I heard Joe Biden talk about giving courts the power to reset mortgage principles I thought he'd simply … [Read more...]

Sneaky Harry Reid Oil Shale Update

I write below about the egregious, execrable Senator Harry Reid of Nevada, and the epic lack of character and utter creepiness of being that he exhibited in exploiting the distraction of a serious crisis to sneak into new legislation a ban on oil shale mining.The execrable Harry Reid is a fiend. While we’re facing gasoline and home heating oil shortages for this winter and who knows how far into the future, he’s still playing games, still working to make us more dependent, rather than less. In … [Read more...]

Harry Reid: Most shameful fella

It's hard to pin down exactly who I dislike the most in Washington, but when I think about it, Harry Reid is the usually the first name that comes to my mind. In fact, I'm sorry to say this but what usually pops into my head is "the execrable Harry Reid."I know, I use that word too often. But in 2005 Harry Reid actually dared to tell America that an 11 year old boy had looked up to him and said he wanted to be just like him when he grew up. He has never been punished for that.Now, of … [Read more...]
