Not In My Bible

Military ran drills against citizens while King Goerge was safe in underground bunker half a continent away.
Neverending mindlessness of conservative women: "He's not the only one"A wonderful lady I know--I'll call her Betty--said to me today about Tom DeLay, "He's not the only one up there like that." She is a truly dear person, smart, loving, a gentle soul. Her biggest problem is that she's a Baptist.
Even the best Baptists--yes, I admit there are a few--live in a parallel universe where contradictions, paradoxes and hypocrisy don't exist.
Betty's comment means, "There is a finite amount of badness, so if you divide it among several people, no one person is very bad, regardless of what he did...especially a republican. They're the ones who oppose queers and abortions. And those things are much worse than stealing billions of dollars, invading other countries and rigging elections." Or put more simply, "At least he's not a baby-eating queer librul."
The vast, right-wing conspiracy--yes, it does exist--have done a superb job of poisoning the minds of people brought up never to question authority, authority being the government, a preacher, a father or especially a husband. Conservative women, regardless of intellect, education, gifts and success, inexplicably turn their brains over to the men in their lives and adopt their men's positions on everything.
My sister--not an actual Baptist, but she might as well be--spent several minutes the other day talking about the mayor of New Orleans. No matter what was said about FEMA or no-bid contracts, she kept saying, "Well, the mayor..." or "You know, that mayor..." and "But, the mayor..." She's another example of how people turn their brains over to preachers and others who all repeat the same anti-librul talking points until they become true, whether they are, or not.
Then she explained to me why all those evacuated from NOLA were "blessed" by losing everything they owned (including relatives) and being relocated to sports stadiums, trailer parks and jail cells far away from all friendly faces. She admitted she hadn't asked any of them if they felt "blessed," but went on to explain that now they were safe they would start "griping about everything."
Both my sister and "Betty" will tell you they are devout christians, which they are, and that they pray about everything, which they do. But whenever I talk to either of them or anyone like them, I have to wonder why all that prayer and devotion don't innoculate them from mindless subsurvience to the worst evil in our history--the republican party and the religious right.
Former Secretary of Education told former FCC chair he wanted theofascist schools to replace public education.
Remember when Lamar! was EdSec? He wanted to abolish the Dept of Education. And the theofascists started huffing and puffing over a decade ago about replace the National Education Association with the American Education Association, implying the NEA wasn't American. In point of fact, it is the theofascists who hate America and are determined to turn our country into a feudal theocracy.
Every vote for any resluglicon--Congress, city council, dog catcher--is a vote for Jerry Falwell and the theofascists. Do you really want those people to run this country?
40% approval rating proves King Goerge and his boys really did get a mandate last year...from Diebold.
New Newsweek poll reflects just how much resluglicons love their criminals.
Most religious leader in history of the universe chooses not to fuss at his friends over lack of religious freedom. Doesn't object to sex slavery, either.
Kompassionate Kancervative Kristians care very much when a Democrat gets a blowjob, but they're strangely silent when every resluglicon in the country is a criminal.
Remember when we were all going to die from anthrax, and King Goerge gave his friends a bazillion dollars of our money for big piles of Cipro we'll never use? Here we go again.
And then there's all that homeland "security" money spent to stop non-existent terists.
Neverending lies, neverending fearmongering, neverending corruption, neverending fascism. If God really sent plagues of locusts and stuff to rid us of sinners, D. C. would be a big pile of rubble by now.
How will he conquer more countries if all his fire-breathing chicknehawk supporters won't fight for him? Only one possibility: a draft.
The White House on Friday threatened to veto a $440.2 billion defense spending bill in the Senate because it wasn't enough money for the Pentagon and also warned lawmakers not to add any amendments to regulate the treatment of detainees or set up a commission to probe abuse.
Why pay a stranger $42,000 when you can pay a friend $88,000?

Who else would celebrate having some guy who's only been any kind of judge for two years?
I've heard it all my life, and now this administration has finally made it become true: "It's not what you know, but who you know."
Federal pen remodels in anticipation of receiving many resluglicons:)
Is Satan reaching up for the resluglicons and letting out his smell, or is their smell attracting him?
Habib told Newsday in an interview published Friday that he was skeptical of the official version of the attack on the World Trade Center, which killed 343 firefighters.
"I've heard professionals say that nowhere ever in history did a steel building come down with fire alone," he told the newspaper.
"It takes two or three weeks to demolish a building like that. But it was pulled down in a couple of hours," he said. "Was it 19 hijackers who brought it down, or was it a conspiracy?"
Another Texan got indicted by exactly the same process.
Read it all. Make sure you read the last two sentences.

Apparently a buncha libruls who believe others besides Baptists are eligible for heaven have infiltrated ultra-kancervative school.
Noe planned to live in Florida whose laws would let him keep what he stole from Ohio.
Why doesn't that corrupt state just break off and drift on down to the Bermuda Triangle where it belongs?
When he reinstitutes the draft, you know he's going to war again.
His case is exactly like Spiro Agnew's. (Look him up. He was Nixon's VP and went to prison.)
Used obscure doctrine to extend his power 95 times.
Has set himself above Supreme Court as final word on what is and is not law.
The Bush administration has been using an extreme version of an obscure doctrine called the Unitary Executive Theory to justify executive actions that far exceed past presidents' power, RAW STORY has learned.
The doctrine assumes, in its extreme form, nearly absolute deference to the Executive branch from Congress and the Judiciary.
For MASSIVE Medicare fraud...right before he took over from Trent Lott. Timing really is everything.
Scores of people in the District called authorities yesterday to complain that a similar odor was invading homes, businesses, a dozen schools and two police stations. Many mistakenly thought the trouble was a natural gas leak, and at least two schools were evacuated for a time.
Firefighters and work crews shuttled from place to place during the day and tested air to find the cause of the odor. The number of complaints tailed off as the afternoon wore on, but the cause of the smell remained a mystery last night.
But his fascists will still control the Supreme Court for decades more.
God help America.
Fascists and theofascists alike celebrate having a Chief Justice with only two years' experience as any kind of judgeThe Era of the Unconstitutional Law is upon us. Every time someone challenges an unconstitutional law, the fascist Supremes will uphold it. And King Goerge gets to appoint another fascist Supreme very soon.
God help America.
Normally an opera is about everybody dying in another language. This one is about everyone dying from radiation poisoning.
(*"Fat Man" and "Little Boy" were the two A-bombs dropped on Japan.)
Remember that McGeorge Bundy pulled that stuff about how the A-bombs saved one million lives out of his butt. He made up that number in an article he wrote for VANITY FAIR in 1946 justifying using the A-bombs (when Japan was clearly finished and even known to have been seeking peace negotiations via Swiss envoys). He admitted years later that his number was based on nothing whatsoever.
Cue chorus: "I don't believe it."
They've never objected to brothels and titty bars near bases, so what's the big deal over trading those pix online? Hell, the PX ran most of the boom-boom joints in 'Nam. True story.
But all that's okay because we got chaplains. And today, most of 'em are KKK evangelicals who'll take good care of our kids' souls after they screw, rape and torture.
"May an unclean yak defile your new SUV."
Mr. Moral Values, Bill Bennett, really said this on the radio. KKK radio.
Bennett's show is run through Salem Radio Network (SRN): "SRN is a full-service satellite radio network based in Irving, Texas. We serve Christian-formatted and general market news/talk stations through affiliate partnerships." SRN's phone number is 972-831-1920. Ask for Charles Mefferd, Operations Manager. The new/existing sales numbers are 972-402-8800 and Fax:972-402-8200. And, use the network's online contact form to send them a message.
The guy who wrote The Book of Values likes to gamble, and is known to have lost at least $8 million in Vegas.
Lives there a theofascist who isn't a hypocrite?
This is a resluglicon ploy for all questions about smoking ganja, snorting tootskie, packing fudge or munching carpets. They do this so that when they're outted, no one can call them liars.
Jerry Falwell wouldn't ignore the question. He's stand up, put his hands on his hips, and say in a strong, clear voice, "No!" whether it was true, or not.

Everybody in Texas except DeLay calls Ronnie Earle a "Boy Scout" for his morals and insistence on following rules. In DeLay's sociopathic parallel universe, such a man naturally is called bad names.
Either he knows they wouldn't vote for him, or he only wants to "represent" white people.
Put Dr. First and DeLay in the same cell and weld the door shut.
If a fanatic's partisan politics constituted grounds for indictment, Falwell and Der Ruschkopf would have indicted Clinton every time he took a breath.
Will this new guy get invited to "Just Us Sunday III" to replace THAT CRIMINAL ASSHOLE DELAY?
Read the entire indictment that will send THAT CRIMINAL ASSHOLE DELAY to jail, hopefully for the rest of his CRIMINAL ASSHOLE life.
RELIGIOUS belief can cause damage to a society, contributing towards high murder rates, abortion, sexual promiscuity and suicide, according to research published today.
According to the study, belief in and worship of God are not only unnecessary for a healthy society but may actually contribute to social problems.
The study counters the view of believers that religion is necessary to provide the moral and ethical foundations of a healthy society.
It compares the social peformance of relatively secular countries, such as Britain, with the US, where the majority believes in a creator rather than the theory of evolution. Many conservative evangelicals in the US consider Darwinism to be a social evil, believing that it inspires atheism and amorality.
Many liberal Christians and believers of other faiths hold that religious belief is socially beneficial, believing that it helps to lower rates of violent crime, murder, suicide, sexual promiscuity and abortion. The benefits of religious belief to a society have been described as its “spiritual capital”. But the study claims that the devotion of many in the US may actually contribute to its ills.
It's bad enough Gen. Myers is an idiot toady; it's worse when he insults my intelligence with his hogwashStop telling me Gulf War II is just like World War II. Back then, FDR led the fight to liberate conquered countries from their invaders. In this war, King Goerge is the invader.
I do not support the troops who want a war just so's they can play with their toys. I do not support the troops who are too stupid to accept the truth about their unelected, criminal king when they hear it. I do not support the troops who think Der Ruschkopf is a source of news.
I do not "support the troops" who lie to me and insult my intelligence. I do not support the troops who support King Goerge and his bullshit war. I do not support the troops who waste my money on stupid crap so they can get nice jobs with defense contractors when they retire. And I do not support the troops who torture people.
Remember some months ago that woman who became the darling of the religious wrong after sharing her faith with the guy from the courthouse? Turns out, she shared more methamphetamine than faith.
What does this story say about sharing prayer and faith? Nothing. What does it say about the mindlessness of theofascists? Everything. And it doesn't reflect very well on the worthlesscorporatemedia, either.
Another brownshirt gets on CPB board.
Half-full cruise ships get $1300/wk for housing Katrina victims; normal price is $600/wk for actual cruise.
And (nonfunctional) Brownie called NOLA dysfunctional.

(*The fake scientists who want to turn America into a feudal theocracy where most people are ignorant.)
Says one Virginian:
"They did this in 2004 too. The game is that when people don’t respond to their mailing, they (resluglicons) challenge their legal voting status at the BOE (as close to the election as possible). If the person then doesn’t come to a legal hearing contesting the Republican challenge, they are thrown off the voter rolls. It’s a great way to strip people’s right to vote away from them if they don’t jump through Republican hoops. Obiovusly, they only go after people they know are Democrats. Last year they challenged a Marine who was currently fighting in Iraq. He was utterly outraged, but there’s not much you can do.
"These guys are just thugs."
In 2000, King Goerge lost the popular vote by over half a million. But the theofascists still say God put him in the White House. Okay, if that's true, He did it by ignoring our laws and Constitution. And I don't care if those criminal fascists say this abomination. I only care that so many stupid people believe that abomination. They are Old Testament christians who hang onto the angry, vengeful God of the Hebrews and ignore literally everything Jesus taught.
If God wants King Goerge in the White House, why did they need for Diebold to steal last year's election?
Okay, I want back the money I donated for Katrina victims, too.
As he burns jet fuel touring Rita's damage to oil production, King Goerge tells the rest of us to drive lessWell, he's flying, not driving.
Meanwhile, North Carolina schools close for two days to save bus fuel.
We all know by now why George won't meet with parents of the soldiers he has killed who disagree with him. First of all, he hates it when people disagree with him. I am not so sure he hates it as much as he is in denial that it even happens. Secondly, he is a coward who arrogantly refuses to meet with the people who pay his salary. Maybe the next time one of us is asked by our bosses to have a performance review, or we are going to be written up for a workplace infraction, we should refuse to go and talk to our bosses citing the fact that the President doesn't have to. The third reason why he won't talk to us is that he knows there is no Noble Cause for the invasion and continued occupation of Iraq. It is a question that has no true answer.
After we were refused a meeting with the Disconnected One, we went over to right in front of our house...the White House (in front of the gate of course) and we sat down and refused to move until George came out and talked to us. We actually had a good time singing old church songs and old protest songs while we waited. I tied a picture of Casey on the White House fence and apparently, that is against the law, too.
After three warnings to get up and move off of the sidewalk in front of our house, we were arrested. It is so ironic to me that the person who resides in our White House swears to uphold and defend the Constitution of the United States of America. The person who is the (p)resident of the White House now has no concept of the Constitution. He was appointed by the Supreme Court for his first term, invaded and continues to occupy a sovereign country without a declaration of war from the Congress, and violated several treaties to actually invade, Iraq too. Not to mention the condoned torture that pervades the military prisons these days. These are all violations of the Constitution. The Patriot Act and denying us our rights to peaceably assemble are serious breaches of the Bill of Rights. George is so hypocritically concerned about Iraq developing a Constitution when he ignores and shreds our own Constitution.

By Bill Moyers
At the Central Baptist Church in Marshall, Texas, where I was baptized in the faith, we believed in a free church in a free state. I still do.
My spiritual forbears did not take kindly to living under theocrats who embraced religious liberty for themselves but denied it to others. “Forced worship stinks in God’s nostrils,” thundered the dissenter Roger Williams as he was banished from Massachusetts for denying Puritan authority over his conscience. Baptists there were a “pitiful negligible minority” but they were agitators for freedom and therefore denounced as “incendiaries of the commonwealth” for holding to their belief in that great democracy of faith-the priesthood of all believers.
Such revolutionary ideas made the new nation with its Constitution and Bill of Rights “a haven for the cause of conscience.” No longer would “the loathsome combination of church and state”-as Thomas Jefferson described it-be the settled order. The First Amendment neither inculcates religion nor inoculates against it. Americans could be loyal to the Constitution without being hostile to God, or they could pay no heed to God without fear of being mugged by an official God Squad. It has been a remarkable arrangement that guaranteed “soul freedom.”
It is at risk now, and the fourth observance of the terrorist attacks of 9/11 is an appropriate time to think about it.
More. Read it all. Use it for ammo against theofascists bent on destroying America.
As "consultant." Can you believe the nerve of these people? But then, what're are we gonna do about it? Until next year's mid-terms, that is.
CNN finally notices Cindy...as she gets dragged away.
Protestors finally remember our battle cry from Chicago, 1968 Democratic National Convention: "The whole world is watching! The whole world is watching! The whole world is watching!"
Hundreds join Cindy in slammer
Turns out it was plastic wrist ties. But, still...
Of course, he could be talking about Coultergeist and Armstrong Williams.
Soldiers trade pix of dead Iraqis for amateur porn.
Maybe it's time we rethought that "support the troops" mantra. I can't support these guys a bit, or those involved in torture at Abu Ghraib.
They tortured Iraqi prisoners for sport.
These soldiers are the one motivating our enemies, not the peaceniks.
CENTCOM doesn't object to picture swapping.
Trafficking in war porn for sex porn is what one soldier calls, "hacking it here." If that's "hacking it," I'd hate to see diving into depravity.
Is there anything King Goerge doesn't lie about?
Chimps and humans share 96% DNA, proving that King Goerge is almost human, at least on a cellular level.
His handlers say he's been using Rita to get back the ol' swagger. You be the judge. I'd say he's gotten back his old hangover instead.
Working for a living isn't as much fun as cutting taxes and playing golf, is it, you piece of shit?

You're not a patriot if you love an unelected, lying, corrupt president and hate the Bill of Rights.
Fascists warmongers who want GIs to keep dying in Iraq call exercising constitutional rights of peaceable assembly, free speech and redress treason.
And as for the "Hang the traitors" sign, come call me a traitor to my face, or shut the hell up.
You're not a patriot if you love an unelected, lying, corrupt president and hate the Bill of Rights.
WingNutDaily supports campaign against Bill of Rights.
Known for its legacy of union-busting, Legion now tries its hand at quashing Constitutional rights, i.e., peaceable assembly, free speech, redress of elected officials. What patriots these old farts are.
That's 100. 100. One hundred.
You can't be a patriot if you love an unelected, lying, corrupt president and hate the Bill of Rights.
"Blessed are the what, now?"
Where do you think Jesus went to church today? With the peaceniks or with the warmongers?
That one is almost as good as the one reading, "I never thought I'd miss Nixon (khop-ptooey!)."
Everyone worried about the "atrocities that'll happen in Iraq" after the troops leave should go to work for Halliburton's mercenaries (KBR, Blackwater) and go stop them. Otherwise, shut up.
That's right, $600. Six hundred dollars.
Let Halliburton, Bechtel and Carlyle pay to rebuild the place. He invaded it for them.
