Sorta important, above the post update.
Eh, it didn’t matter much to me, I was just curious and I saw something today that gave me a clue on how to find out.
Aaccording to this Catholic News Agency article,
Vatican spokesman Fr. Federico Lombardi has confirmed that the Pope intended to take his name from the 13th century aristocrat who left his wealthy family to serve the poor and rebuild the Church.
So, St. Francis of Assisi.
Now, back to the post!
My subscription to spell check ran out so you gets what I gives.
I’m all depressed today, Nicole wrote what I was worried about, I’m becoming an OUTRAGE!!!! monger. Apcray.
Denial is just not strong enough for today and I can’t stay drunk all day. Maybe I should turn to LSD. Eh, I’ll try to see the funny.
This one actually does make me laugh, It’s a drudge link and he’s talking about Obama slapping around a Dem congresscritter. What makes me laugh is this
Obama was referring to his $1 billion proposal for 15 manufacturing “innovation centers,”
He actually expects people to take that shit seriously.
The article goes on to note this
the details of which are still somewhat hazy.
“Hazy”, yeah, we’ll go with that. It sounds so much better than, “Ridiculous crap that doesn’t mean anything.”
We all saw Cruz make Feinstein look like a fool yesterday. You know it was bad because Andrea Mitchell declared DiFi the winner, but we also see this as another proof they know she looked like the moron she is (Dumber than a box of Boxers!)
Feinstein told Wolf Blitzer she “felt patronized” by the “arrogant” junior senator and had to take some time to cool off afterward.
Awwww, did the mean old man make ems look stupid?
How arrogant and clueless do you have to be to piss off the men who are dedicated to give up their lives for yours?
A former agent blasted President Obama for blaming the Secret Service for the decision to shut down White House tours,
That’s right, Obama arrogant and clueless.
What lefties do understand is indoctrination, they’re only fer it when they’re indoctrinating kids to believe the right things.
I just intro’d bill to prevent kids under 12 from going to gun shows.
Yup, can’t let 12 year olds learn how cool guns are or they might want one.
You cannot “protect” a right while calling for limitations on it.
Preach it brother!
How do you say, “How many divisions does he have?” in Mandarin? (unsafe, NY Times Link)
China congratulated Pope Francis on Thursday on his ascension to the papacy, but also warned the Vatican not to interfere in what China deems to be its internal affairs.
I know who I’m rooting for.
Hmmm, now I have to wonder how to say it in English.
This past Sunday, a Chicago area church sponsored a Second Amendment Sunday filled with “assault” pop-tarts, “combat” cupcakes and a sheet-cake that featured a chocolate semi-automatic Glock handgun with a quote from Jesus that read “Blessed are the peacemakers.”
That last is a very nice touch except they really needed it to be a Colt, not a Glock.
Okay, headlines that just seem fucking ridiculous.
US Can’t Make Dominos Founder Offer Contraceptives To Employees
Seriously, imagine going back to the 50s and showing that article to people. They’d lock you up for your own good.
A question, could you let him off if he promises to take acting lessons?
Hah!… Iranian Regime TV: Ben Affleck Could Be Hanged For War Crimes
I ask because I could see that question coming up.
Hmmm, this is interesting.
Egyptian media outlets are reporting that a number of Hamas members were involved in the August 2012 attack on an Egyptian military base that killed 16 Egyptian soldiers. The three Hamas members linked to the attack are Ayman Nofal, Mohamed Ibrahim Salah Abu Shamala, and Raed al Attar.
On the one hand, I doubt the Muslim Brotherhood likes Hamas killing people in Egypt without their permission, on the other hand, they were killing the main obstacles to the MB’s takeover of Egypt. Interesting to see how it plays out.
Now sure about this one either.
“The Lebanese cabinet is required to hold an extraordinary meeting to ask the army to deploy along the border,”
Whose side would they be on? So far in Syria we’ve seen homegrown terrorists, al Quaeda, Hezbollah and Syrian military in a dog’s breakfast of a nightmare scenario, I guess whose side they’ll be on depends on how many Hezbollah units are included.
Steyn on Islamophobes getting their blood all over the place.
The attempted murder of an “Islamophobe” is part of the scene in today’s Europe. Among those targeted have been such obvious “right-wing extremists” as secular feminist Ayaan Hirsi Ali, gay hedonist Pim Fortuyn, and coke-snorting anti-monarchist Theo van Gogh. While I was in Copenhagen paying a visit to Lars’s Danish Free Press Society, a young Chechen jihadist opposed to all this outrageous Islamophobia prematurely detonated while assembling his bomb in his hotel room, and we all had a good laugh. But sometimes, as on Lars’s doorstep, the jihad wannabe is less incompetent and gets a little closer.
It being EUnuchstan, they need to provide ‘balance’.
The author Hedegaard is one of the few Danes who is a certified racist, as he some years ago was fined by a High Court for having stated in a blog interview that Muslim fathers rape their children. He was later acquitted by the Supreme Court.
Hmmm, where does one get one of those certificates? And since he was acquitted, isn’t he a “formerly certified racist” as he’d have lost his certified status?
I’m surprised we haven’t seen this bit of sorta good news at Hot Air, Ace, Drudge, Gateway pundit or any of the other news aggregators.
… jumped out a window from the family’s co-op apartment Wednesday afternoon with 10-month-old son Keston in her arms. She died instantly.
The baby survived by bouncing off his motionless mom’s chest upon impact.
I’m always in favor of them failing at the “murder” part of a “murder/suicide” deal.
Two masked men armed opened fire in a bar on the outskirts of the Mexican tourist resort of Cancun on Thursday, killing six people and wounding five,
While I abhor the violence, as a titty-man, I understand it.
Apparently illegal immigration causes global worming.
It’s one reason I feel it’s urgent that we get real immigration reform, allowing millions to step out of the shadows and on to a broad path toward citizenship. It will help, not hurt, our environmental efforts, and potentially in deep and powerful ways.
The biggest lack in today’s world are people who stand back and say, “You know, that’s pretty fucking ridiculous, maybe you should not say that.”, that’s why it’s often so funny out.
I’ve been wondering something lately, who will be the first con-blogger to be arrested for sedition. Mike at Cold Fury has a list of some of the people I think are in the running.
I just realized that SMOD should be plan B, FrnakJ notes what we all used to know was Plan A.
So, what do you think should be the future of conservatism? I’m thinking conquering other planets. Going to other planets looks like the only realistic way to escape big government now.
Yup, Heinlein, in Time Enough For Love, I think, said that space travel hurt the Earth as freedom lovers escaped the increasing loss of freedom on Earth.
Just as immigration to America hurt EUnuchstan as all the freedom lovers left for America for generations.
In other words, I’ve been rooting for stuff traveling in the wrong direction! That’s pretty funny.
