  1. I don’t know if I totally agree with Dianny’s rant on SCOTUS, but as Scalia pointed out, the court really did go waaaaaay over the line in smacking down religious groups in a way that guarantees that they will all lose their tax-exempt IRS status shortly. Don’t think so? Think again. The court thoroughly de-legitimized anyone who had a negative opinion of fully-sanctioned gay marriage, meaning all religious groups everywhere. OR for that matter, any permutation of marriage, such as polygamy or polyandry or (fill-in-the-blank). See Ben Shapiro below.

      Look on the bright side Grunt – if things go south with our distaff side, we can marry our dog pretty soon.

      While I literally abhor everything this man/child has done, on one level you have to step back and marvel at what has been destroyed/accomplished on his watch with little to no backlash by the majority of this once great Country. Amazing.

      Healthcare for none, insurance for all.
      Destruction of the sanctity of marriage.
      Essentially destroyed organized religion. (except islam)
      Accelerated the decline of education.

      There is a much longer list, but I don’t have the stomach, nor time to finish it. πŸ‘Ώ

  2. Gonna be a hot one in the west today.

  3. Great. I wonder if this came out as part of Pope Francis’ council appointed to clean up the vatican. If so, I guess they’re doing their jobs, unlike the U.S. Justice Dept.

      As much as I loathe to say this but, unfortunately, because of our lack of proper spiritual leadership within the CC, or, I should say, a lack of love for God, I am afraid we will see more of these scandals. But before a healing, comes a cleansing. We just have to do our part and hold those responsible to the fire as well as WE be the example, that is lacking in the overall leadership. Kinda like what is happening to our country currently.

  4. If Lois Lerner goes to jail, as she should, that alone would make me feel a lot better about all this. If she doesn’t, things are grim indeed.

    • texan59 says:

      I’m betting that this ends up about like Holder’s contempt of Congress over FNF. Zero.Zip.Nada. But you know me, always an optimist.

  5. New instructions from Fraulein Frankenfeinstein at the People’s Cube:

    Comrades, compatriots and compadres:

    We have reached the New World of Next Tuesday on a day that is not even Tuesday. Gloriously, *we the Progressive, open-minded and tolerant defenders of the re-adjusted truth, have reached a new high of unequaled equality. *We have successfully redefined the previously un-redefinable. (praise allah… Obama!)

    Injustice has been readjusted and redefined to mean what it should mean . . . which is whatever we (*see above) mean!

    White privileged white people are official “crackers”. We have also been instructed that it is not racist because the white people do not have the mind-think of black peoples, who can think whatever they way about ‘white crackers’.

    Only the glorious Progressive, Liberal Democratic type of bro and sistern, have the privilege of being racisted upon, as we know. “White Is Out, Black Is Back In” (tshirt to be available in the Peoples Eye and Arm Transplant Center a week from next Tuesday).

    It is evil, selfish white privilege that makes understanding dear comrades of dark coloring not to be understood. Shame on the white peoples for being white and taking privileges away from peoples of colors!! “DOWN WITH WHITE PEOPLE AND THEIR WHITE PRIVILEGE”. (tshirt to be available in the Peoples Transmission & Kool Aid Center a week from next Tuesday)

    Only black people can understand the black people: “Nigga,” is understood to be okey dokey when used by black peoples, but not white peoples. And white privileged “crack” should know that the “Kings English” is racist talk by white peoples!!… so says Christina Coleman. So let it be written, so make it be done!

    Everyone is required to purchase White Privileged Crack tshirt asap! Now you may resume your previous activity.

  6. It’s just a good thing this poor woman lives in the Netherlands. If she was in Pakistan, she’d be stoned to death for this. Or at least have her left foot cut off. But that would fix the problem, I suppose.

    • texan59 says:

      Well, who among us hasn’t made a woman curl her toes at least once. πŸ˜†

      Sorry ladies! 😦

      • barnslayer says:

        I wouldn’t think that event warrants an apology… unless you did it by accident.

        • What A Hoot says:

          “I wouldn’t think that event warrants an apology….unless you did it by accident….and couldn’t figure out how to repeat it. (Tried to resist the comment. Ok. Now I will go back to being a lady.)

  7. freedom1781 says:

    Former Marine general target of Stuxnet leak investigation

    Gen. Cartwright was just following orders to leak that info, just like Snowden followed orders…. Yeah, I said it….

    • barnslayer says:

      A Faraday cage will block that technology. Brass or copper mesh on the walls should do it.

      • Knight4GFC says:

        Hmm… never thought of that.

      • Whoa, you know a lot about this new-fangled radio stuff. Are you sure you’re not ex-NSA, Barn?

        • barnslayer says:

          Nah. Just a skeptic. Whenever I read about some “brand new” tech toy the gov’t is going to spend our taxes on I start to think on why it’s a mistake. This one is either a lie… that they’re gonna actually use strong (unsafe for public) energy signals or they are truly very stupid and not at all shy about it. Any structure that gives you a crappy wi-fi signal will defeat the technology as they describe it. The Faraday cage or those jammers you can buy on Amazon will also do. NSA? I can’t even spell that… hmmm maybe I am. Did you flashy thing me?

      • What A Hoot says:

        Is there a copper or brass spray paint of some sort????

  8. barnslayer says:

    See where you “fit in” politically:

  9. Great News! Jihadis are posting cash rewards for the deaths of anti-jihadi bloggers.

    • barnslayer says:

      How can we scam them? I could use the extra $$$. It doesn’t say what kind of proof we’d have to fake. Maybe some “misplaced” medical waste would do? It’s not likely these numb nuts are gonna run DNA matches.

      • Hmmm. Maybe we could send ’em pig parts. πŸ˜€ “We send you the entrails of the infidel pig, Barnslayer, whose arrows slew many righteous jihadis. We made him squeal and beg for death before we eased his suffering. That’ll be $10,000, please, in cash or travelers checks. We also accept American Express.”
