"Immoral Villains!" sez Nancy "Queeg" Pelosi – UPDATED

Okay, I've decided that Nancy Pelosi (whose Native American name might be "Stands With An Angry Little Fist" ala "Dancing With Wolves") is beginning to sound like a paranoid lunatic who can find a convenient villain any time she needs one, as Tom Elia points out here.Thus spaketh The Pelosi:"They are the villains in this," Pelosi said of private insurers. "They have been part of the problem in a major way. They are doing everything in their power to stop a public option from happening. And … [Read more...]

PropaBamaGanda – UPDATED

Well, Ted Kennedy won't have them destroying his pristine view of Nantucket Sound, but The Capitalists Who Are Eager For You To Obey are busy selling these posters, 2 at a clip, hoping people will paper the nation with the latest USSR-flavored Propaganda Poster, so that you and I will see these windfans, wherever we turn. (Thanks to Philaver and Larwyn)The People's Cube couldn't spoof it betterYes, you can buy it at a place called (I'm not kidding, you can google it) "The OBEY Store." As … [Read more...]

Science Czars & Healthcare; When Life is devalued…UPDATED

President Obama's plans are to appoint 32 Czars within his administration. These are people about whom Congress does not advise or consent, and about whom the press is conveniently incurious. So far, the press thinks they're all just brilliant and they have no problem with a president appointing 32 Czars accountable only to him.Whadda you think of that? You comfortable knowing that these "czars" escape serious but are given some rather potent power with little oversight?I mean, come … [Read more...]

Palin, Obama & Not quite pulled together yet

I know it must seem like I'm being lazy and not attending to my work over here; it's not that. I just can't seem to settle in and focus on much.The news feels like it's all coming in too fast to process, the congress is passing mammoth bills it can't be bothered to read. As the deficit tops ONE TRILLION DOLLARS for the first time, ever, the president is standing at ship's helm, a deep gouge in his hull, and blocking our views while saying "everything is mostly great; things are working … [Read more...]

Ok, concedo; the world is nuts

Reading the news today, I feel a little like Roberto Duran, blocking the blows and shouting, "no mas, no mas!"Let's start here:Pop’s parents, both 24, made a decision when their baby was born to keep Pop’s sex a secret. Aside from a select few...nobody knows Pop’s gender; if anyone enquires, Pop’s parents simply say they don’t disclose this information.In an interview with newspaper Svenska Dagbladet in March, the parents were quoted saying their decision was rooted in the feminist … [Read more...]

Reclaiming a Holy Thing from the Dogs

So, a during the Carrie Prejean/Prop 8 kerfluffle, I wrote this:"...if you’re going to take off your top for a camera, be prepared (sooner or later) to have to answer for it, both in this world, and the next...You’ll have to answer for it because when you profess yourself a Christian, you choose exile, and you will be held to a different standard, entirely, than the world’s. ... In the next world, of course, you’ll have to answer to Christ, himself, who is much more merciful than the rest of us … [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...]

Obama: the Opposite of America

I had this awful feeling, a few months into Obama's presidency, that he had no wish to lead the nation, but to rule it. One of his minions (I can't remember who, sorry) had actually used the phrase "when Obama rules" prior to his inauguration, but I'd excused it as a misspeak. Now, I am not so sure.In five years of blogging, I have never called a president by anything but his name or his title. I have booted people who have tried to call past or current presidents by foul nicknames. … [Read more...]

Huge Friday Linkaround

I so much wanted to do a podcast of morning prayer, but time got away from me. Will try to get a podcast up for Vespers, this afternoon. Meanwhile, this may keep you reading into tomorrow.For your linkaround, first let me talk about me, me, me; Yesterday's Daily article on the murder of George Tiller, and the musings of some Christians as to whether Bonehoeffer made a case for such a terrible killing, garnered many comments, a few of which suggested the commenter had not read the thing, a … [Read more...]
