Sequester hurts hungry kids most
The GOP laughs at that line, the bastards
by Joe Conason


The difference between a natural disaster and a disaster caused by politicians is that the latter
will almost always hit the poor and the obscure most heavily, while a hurricane or a flood will
at least sometimes spread the suffering more evenly.
As the “sequester” unfolds in Washington, we see this same old pattern holding firm: Republican leaders,
now hustling to shirk responsibility for the catastrophe they predicted, insist those automated budget axes
won’t do any damage at all.
Has anyone felt any pain yet?
Not during the first few days, of course, but when the cuts begin to bite a month or so from now,
the first to feel it will be the unemployed and the destitute, for whom a few dollars of government support
mean so much in their daily survival calculation. A decent policy would seek to spare them the brunt of
political mistakes made by other, far more comfortable people, but this process permits no such choices
 – and the most vulnerable will by definition be hurt most.

Part of the problem is the idea of "drastic" cuts is just what the GOP has wanted all along.
And Teabaggers LIKE taking a chainsaw to the military - something the GOP has never agreed to before.

Perry in Trouble in Tejas

Is Tejas tired of a joke governor?


While Republican primary voters support their governor, more Texans are looking forward to
voting against Rick Perry in the 2014 election than for him, according to the latest poll.
Only 26 percent of registered voters surveyed are planning to vote for Perry, while 36 percent won't.
Of the remaining 38 percent, 33 percent will “wait and see” and 5 percent are "too stupid" to have an opinion.
Perry currently leads Texas attorney general Greg Abbott in a potential primary challenge 27-14,
with 28 percent being too stupid top have an opinion.
“You can rule out the idea that Perry is just dead,” said Daron Shaw, co-director of the poll.
“You can’t reach that conclusion. But you also can’t say he’s just unbeatable, relative to Abbott.”

We have a crazy handjob governor in Oklahoma, too, but nobody knows it.
Everybody knows what a racist moron Perry is and that has to be bad for Texas.

'Rat' ordered sex abuse concealed
Guilty Pope 'obstructed' sex abuse inquiry
That's called Conspiracy to Obstruct Jstice...

Pope Benedict XVI faced claims last night he had 'obstructed justice' after it
emerged he issued an order ensuring the church's investigations into child
sex abuse claims be carried out in secret. The order was made in a confidential
letter which was sent to every Catholic bishop in May 2001.

It asserted the church's right to hold its inquiries behind closed doors and keep
the evidence confidential for up to 10 years after the victims reached adulthood.
The letter was signed by Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger, who later became Pope.

Lawyers acting for abuse victims claim it was designed to prevent the allegations
from becoming public knowledge or being investigated by the police. They accuse
Ratzinger of committing a 'clear obstruction of justice'.

The letter spells out to bishops the church's position on a number of matters
inclusing sexual abuse by a cleric 'with a minor below the age of 18 years.
Ratzinger's letter states that the church can claim jurisdiction in cases
where abuse has been 'perpetrated with a minor by a cleric'.

You don't get to do that!

What if somebody kicked your ass down a flight of stairs and then
"claimed jurisdiction" and said it was nobody else's business?

Bradley Manning's Uncommon Courage

Bradley Manning has pleaded guilty to 10 charges including possessing and willfully
communicating to an unauthorized person all the main elements of the WikiLeaks disclosure.
The charges carry a total of 20 years in prison. For the first time, Manning spoke publicly
about what he did and why. His actions, now confirmed by his own words, reveal Manning
to be a very brave young man.
When he was 22 years old, Pfc. Bradley Manning gave classified documents to WikiLeaks.
They included the “Collateral Murder” video, which depicts U.S. forces in an Apache helicopter
killing 12 unarmed civilians, including two Reuters journalists, and wounding two children.
“I believed if the public, particularly the American public, could see this it could spark a debate
on the military and our foreign policy in general as it applied to Iraq and Afghanistan,” Manning
told the military tribunal during his guilty plea proceeding. “It might cause society to reconsider
the need to engage in counter terrorism while ignoring the human situation of the people we
engaged with every day.”
Manning said he was frustrated by his inability to convince his chain of command to investigate
the Collateral Murder video and other “war porn” documented in the files he provided to WikiLeaks:
“I was disturbed by the response to injured children.”

If Manning "hurt" the United States, the government should say how and where.

If America was "hurt" by Manning revealing war crimes, what does that say?

 Subject: Republicans want more debt

Although Republicans make a lot of noise about the national debt the actually want more debt.
More debt works in their favor. They want the debt to go up.

Republicans have been against Medicare and Social Security since it started and when Republicans
ran up the debt in the Bush years it created an opportunity to use the debt as an excuse to "cut entitlements".

They also want to cut government regulation so they can pollute all they want, sell cigarettes, and let
the banks rob us without the government protecting the citizens. "We have to cut spending!", they cry.
But they don't care about spending. They just want to take our money and give it to rich people.

Our problem isn't spending. Our problem is tax fairness.
We need to tax rich people at the same rate as working people.
We don't get the tax breaks they do. The super rich are trying to enslave us in dept and we have to say no.
We need to push the Republican boot off the throat of the poor.

Is it Ashley Judd's Fault?

Mitch the Bitch is worried about getting T-bagged in the primaries.
If he makes a deal with the "N-word with Horns," he's going to lose
so he's got to stick with the sequester no matter what.
Not only is he getting hell from his right,
he's got to figure out what to do with Ashley Judd who CAN beat the Turtle.

Boner's got the same problem.
If he makes a deal with NwH, he's not going to be Speaker for long.

So, if American makes ANY progress,
Bitch and Boner will lose their multi-million dollar jobs.

Can't have that.

Fake Bishop sneaks into Vatican
He told them rape was a bad thing...


A fake bishop sneaked into a real Vatican meeting on Monday, rubbing elbows with some 100 real cardinals.
This wasn’t some conspiratorial Dan Brown super spy infiltrating a uber-secretive Pope meeting or anything.
Rather, this fake bishop is a simple Australian prankster by the name of Ralph Napierski, reports MSN.

Disguised as a bishop and going by the name “Basilius” from the “Italian Orthodox Church,” Napierski attended
an official Vatican meeting with over 100 cardinals, spoke with reporters, and managed to “commiserate” with
other Catholic priests before he was finally found out and bounced (bell, book and candle, we presume) by Swiss Guards.
Before he was found out, Napierski managed to tell reporters that the Catholic church had “made a mistake
by moving priests” who were accused of pedophilia to difference parishes.

I spent (wasted) 22 years of my life supposedly protecting the Constitution.
It is bullshit that any President can have an American killed on say so.

How soon will it be before Americans are targeted in the continental United States,
just because some asshole says your a terrorist? You ready for that? I am not.

If there is no protection of due process, then we have no fucking right to call
our country a nation of law. I don't fucking care if they are plotting to carry out
a terrorist attack holding a circle jerk.   It pissed me off so much I did my Masters
thesis on it. Attached is the final draft should help if you are suffering from insomnia.

carlisle iowa

Mark, I can't post your thesis without spending a lot of time reformatting it.

If you post it online somewhere, I could link to it.

Do you understand that we're in a war with thousands (some day millions) of lives at stake?

It boils down to this:
If YOU have a gun and someone starts shooting at you, you have options:

You can tell yourself that it's WRONG to shoot him without due process ...and likely die,
OR, you can make a mental note to file charges aginst him in the event that you survive,
OR you can use your gun and kill the bastard dead.

We are two different people.

Maybe I'd feel differently if I believed in an after-life where God would
pat me on the head for being sheeplike and accepting my pre-ordained fate.

Some liberals don't believe in self-defense.
That's where I split from them.
