Dozens of police break up brawl at church…

This is exactly why non-believers are better than Christians. You have never and will never see this sort of thing happen at an atheist church.

Sen. Schumer on the Three Branches of Government

Republicans… shut down the government, not only would horrible things happen like an inability of people to get social security checks …can’t fund the military… the credit markets… wary… losing confidence… deeper recession… God forbid, even a depression… Now we have three branches of government. We have a House. We have a Senate. We have a President…

Chuck Schumer, Constitutional Scholar Senator

You notice how he got in a good scare for the old folks. Your social security might not come if your Republican reps fuck around. Your investments might disappear!! The terrorists will win!!!

I hope Ruth Bader Ginsberg meets him and yells, “Three!” and slaps him on the wiener Ah, maybe he was just mad at Judge Vinson and left out the Judicial branch as as a warning.

You know… Democrats… he also cites the disaster, the travesty, the horror that was Newt Gingrich shutting down the great white G back in the day. You remember those days? You sure the fuck brag enough about them and how they were the ever loving salad days of the US. There are those who believe the good economy at the time was the direct result of the deadlocked government: Dem Pres v Rep Cong. That the only time the government does anything good for us is when it does very little of anything at all. Let us hope we have a chance to gather a bit more empirical data soon.

But you go on having it both ways. I know that’s how you like it. Just like your mom.

Judge: Obama’s health overhaul unconstitutional

Does not one single pwog question the reasonability of solving the problems with US health care by cutting Medicaid and making it a crime to not own medical insurance? Oh, I guess one pwog does, at least in private. From the judge’s decision–

…if a mandate was [sic] the solution, we can [sic] try that to solve homelessness by mandating everybody to [sic] buy a house.

Senator Obama, 2008

This guy is your great orator? Were that it was so. Or something.

Dallas Teen Fined $637 for Foul Mouth

Feh… fill in your own punchline for me, would you? I don’t feel like typing out the menagerie just now.

DA: Wife Killed Husband After Finding Hickey

She allegedly found a hickey on his neck and stabbed him with a cooking knife.

CBS Boston

Can we now finally all agree that knifes, especially kitchen knives, are nothing but accidents waiting to happen? We must get them out of our kitchens and off the streets before any more lives are lost.1

Better in than out: African country set to make breaking wind a crime

Farting may soon be illegal in Malawi. You know… as amoral, ignorant, and whoring as US Congresscritters are I doubt you could summon a quorum for this. Then again, they don’t read the bills so this could well turn up a rider someday. Now that would be funny. Hmmmm… I wonder if any of the kids want to be interns in DC?

1 That’s a bit more funny than you think it is because about half of the murders in the US don’t involve a weapon with a trigger. The More You Know. …The more you’ll plug your ears and go, La, la, la, la, la…
