Some of those who have faulted Benedict for resigning have pointed to the late Pope John Paul, who said he would "not come down from the cross" despite his bad health because he believed his suffering could inspire others.What is wrong w/ these
How is this any different from real, Biblical Christianity?
When will all the dead-serious $200 million battle-centered giant-infested similarly cast rousingly scored fabulously rendered 3D fairy-tale reimaginings all finally merge together into one enormous Anglophilic fantasmagoria of monarchical order and virtue so we can all be done with this for the time being?No fucking shit.
With modern weapons-grade uranium, the background neutron rate is so low that terrorists, if they had such material, would have a good chance of setting off a high-yield explosion simply by dropping one half of the material onto the other half. Most people seem unaware that if separated U-235 is at hand, it's a trivial job to set off a nuclear explosion, whereas if only plutonium is available, making it explode is the most difficult technical job I know.We didn't know he'd worked on the Manhattan Project. Destroyer of worlds indeed.

And, it's an exclusive! No one else had the story! Silly old mainstream legacy media. Completely in the tank for Obummer. If only they'd covered this, Obammy would never have been reëlected. Never!! This is also incontrovertible evidence that all the Internet-savvy tech whizzes have deserted the community organizers & are now aligned w/ the stupid greedy party. Won't be long before hateful Republican messages of exclusion & rabid extremity are all over social media & those 'phones the kids love. And once young people get those messages, well, you can bet they won't be voting for a Democrat Santa Claus next time.

Tow trucks are making way for scores of limos that will be arriving this afternoon for the Academy Awards. LAist reader Dan Cox sent us before and after photos from Franklin Avenue near Whitley Street this morning. He estimates about 200 cars were towed from one street alone. (Sidenote: that intersection is in rough condition. Looks like Hollywood the neighborhood needs to have some work done.)So-called patriots, don't talk to us about freedoms, liberties & property rights until you have taken out an OPG tow truck or a parking enforcement Nazi. Let them tow your cars & they'll come for your guns next!
Hah! Turns out those of you who haven't drowned will not be safe even when you're sleeping.
Drowning in your own sweat while you sleep. Warms our evil heart & soul just to imagine it.
exclusively buys the first edition, and only those under $20 in order to have some with well-worn character (one even has a cigarette burn all the way through its vinyl, another had its sleeves replaced with paper towels).This is alleged to be 100 discs (digitized, we assume) playing at once. Not that interesting until (6:30).And Mr. Bicoastal's installed almost 700 copies in a SoHo (New York) gallery for the full art experience.
[R]eviewer Robert Merry writing: "The Coolidge years represent the country's most distilled experiment in supply-side economics—and the doctrine's most conspicuous success. That success is the central Coolidge legacy, brought home with telling authority in Ms. Shlaes's work. This book's timing is propitious."Quite successful, if you ignore the Great Depression that was the result. Have we mentioned how much we despise these lying sacks of shit?
The Rev. Robert Jeffress of First Baptist Church in Dallas hasn’t stopped preaching that homosexual sex is sinful, but he no longer singles it out for special condemnation. Now, Jeffress says, he usually talks about homosexuality within “a bigger context of God’s plan for sex between one man and one woman in a lifetime relationship called marriage.” (Luke Edmonson/AP)Christ on a crutch.
“He said that because of professional and personal reasons he needed to stay away from controversy right now, so he would not be able to come,” Jeffress told The Daily Beast on Thursday afternoon. “But he also voiced that he would like to come at some future date in our church.”Two-faced Tim stands up for Jesus like he plays big-time football (not very well, in case you don't know): So sorry if anyone was offended & I will visit your mega-church to tell you what Jesus wants from you just as soon as He lines up another paying football gig for me.
Christ, what an asshole. We've had more than enough from Senator Shithead, & would like to be punching him on the (cancerous) left side of his face over & over & over. (Extra-convenient for the right-handed.)
You tell him, Mr. Teves. We still don't understand why Mrs. Teves believes that 30 yrs. in office would make McCain more sympathetic or empathetic. Only the "pathetic" part applies.

Quiver in fear, puny humanoids. Your time is done.It may not have been as spectacular as the space rock that streaked across the skies above Russia late Thursday, but the Bay Area's close encounter with a meteor Friday night was drawing its own attention on social networks.
Comments on Twitter indicated the object that flashed across the horizon around 7:45 p.m. was blue in color and visible throughout the Bay Area and large areas of the West Coast, with at least one reported sighting in Washington state.
Amateur video footage broadcast on KTVU-2 showed a bright streak lasting approximately five seconds that appeared to head downward. Some viewers described it as a firework in the night sky.
Apparently Russia's Wayne LaPierre-anoid.
I don’t normally like to draw attention to David Corn, the only left-wing operative named after a vegetable often found embedded in feces.That's a knee-slapper. We can barely contain ourself from rolling on the floor.

A meteorite shot across the sky in central Russia early on Friday and sent fireballs crashing to Earth, smashing windows, setting off car alarms and injuring 150 people.
Ha-fuckin'-ha!In October 2007, it was announced that the school would close at the end of the 2007–2008 academic year due to declining enrollment. Parents, students, faculty and alumni felt otherwise. The timing of the closure coincided with the Archdiocese's payoff of a $660 million settlement to abuse victims. The Archdiocese claimed the closure had nothing to do with the settlement and that the decision was based solely on the low enrollment. The Archdiocese claimed it could no longer afford to provide financial subsidization to the school. The parents proposed to pay an additional $1,000 per year in tuition which, they contended, would have exceeded any amount the Archdiocese had ever had to spend to keep the school in the black. However, the Archdiocese said the decision to close the school was "irrevocable". The Alumni Association and parent's group joined forces and fought to keep the school open. With the exception of one token meeting, the Archdiocese ignored all requests to meet and discuss the closure.
But given that we live in a moment when 67 percent of Republicans think [Ed. note: We doubt that anywhere near that many Republicans actually think.] that violent video games present a “bigger safety threat” than guns according to a recent Public Policy Polling survey, the same kind of incentives to find video games guilty exist today that existed when Wertham went after comics. And even if a rigorous study does emerge from our current debate over guns policy, I’d be amazed if it was publicly accepted. The public doesn’t blame comics or video games for crime and violence because they have strong evidence and day-to-day demonstrations of the impact of that media. They blame comics and video games because they have relatively low levels of cultural capital relative to mediums like film and television, and because it’s easier to think about regulating culture than it is to go after other, more systematic elements of American life.Also on the comic front:Via.

And how much will you bet that the shooter was a law-abiding citizen or, if he was the convicted kidnapper, the "good guys w/ guns" apparently didn't have the will or common sense to relieve him of his weapons after his conviction?Police have confirmed that the shooting is related to an ongoing child custody dispute case that has been played out in Delaware courts for years.
Five years ago, Belford's former husband kidnapped their three children and fled to Central America. He was later caught and sentenced to four years in prison.
Police are not identifying the gunman yet, saying only that he is a white male in his 50's or 60's.
Police say the two injured officers, a 42-year-old 7-year veteran and a 50-year-old 1-year veteran, were shot in an exchange with the gunman. Luckily, the officers were both struck in their bullet proof vests and are in good condition.Fuck this shit. Maybe, rather than everyone having weapons everywhere all the time (Because it doesn't look like the "good guy w/ a gun" can even keep himself safe.) we could just issue bullet-proof vests to every American who leaves her or his house on a regular basis.
The Israel lobby made sure that this Saturday Night Live sketch on the Chuck Hagel hearings was dropped from the show …
Well, maybe the lobby didn’t need to intervene. More likely, the show’s writers had to reconcile themselves to the fact that their audience doesn’t pay too much attention to what happens in the U.S. Senate. It’s hard to satirize a particular form of behavior — in this case, shameless displays of slavish adoration of Israel — if the people who need to get the joke are ignorant about the thing being mocked. Still, thanks to SNL for giving it a shot.
Wonder if ol' L. Brent III has any shootin' irons. 'Cause it would be irresponsible not to speculate. Public safety & all.
Gee, they really are out to get you, aren't they?Read the article. Am I crazy or is the editor of this piece mocking Levin and standing up for establishment kingmaker Karl Rove?
Are there any big sites that aren’t dismissive of conservatives and the TEA Party?
We are in trouble.
UPDATE: No reading between the lines necessary. The Daily Caller has laid it on the line -
Mark Levin has signed a clown letter that embarrasses clowns.
The DC Caller is not only having trouble with the TEA Party, but they are having trouble identifying the left from the right. Why would anyone on the right hold up Ron Jr. as someone immune from attack, legacy or not? It’s a clown analogy that embarrasses clowns.
The only big site worth going to is American Thinker. The rest are all suspect as far as I’m concerned.

You're a fucking cretin.Newly published research provides a compelling answer: brand-name products. Conservatives gravitate toward them, and Walmart, unlike Trader Joe’s, is packed with them.
That provocative conclusion can be drawn from a study in the journal Psychological Science. A research team led by Vishal Singh of New York University’s Stern School of Business has discovered a relationship between voting behavior, high levels of religiosity, and “seemingly inconsequential product choices.”
They argue that your decision to vote for a certain candidate, and purchase a particular brand of detergent, springs from the same basic impulse:
Trotter herself seems surprised by all the attention. “I would not call myself a political activist,” she tells The Daily Beast. “I’m just very interested in our liberties under the Constitution.”Trotter being the anti-feminist who told a Congressional hearing that she wants a scary-looking gun w/ which to defend her "babies."
|Trotter speaks to committee. At right, Wayne LaPierre.|
The 41-year-old is a mother of six and a partner in the law firm she and her father built. She has written for a few blogs, including the now defunct Christian-themed Evangel. She’s a senior fellow at the Independent Women’s Forum, a nonprofit research group whose mission is to “expand the conservative coalition.”Whenever we at Just Another Blog (From L.A.)™ hear the phrase "nonprofit research group" we reach for our revolvers. Same deal when we see this much boiler-plate strung together.
She also defended her testimony further in an email, writing, “I am an unapologetically liberty-loving, tyranny-hating, red-blooded, patriotic American woman, a lawyer who is proud to say that the Declaration of Independence, the Constitution and the Bill of Rights are the founding charters of freedom and that government of the people, for the people and by the people is here to stay.”That is senior fellow-worthy blah blah yada yada if we've ever read any. And what exactly does redbloodedness have to do w/, well, anything, really? Are green-blooded, patriotic American woman not as patriotic as the red-blooded variety?

"Beloved," too, not merely a "critically important" playa. Hard to imagine whiny scold L. Brent as beloved; we can conceive of him as a playa, ah-iight, just not in American history beyond the obvious use as a peripheral bad example.
