John Boehner lined up with bedfellows John McCain, Barack Obama, Mike Rogers, Harry Reid, Saxby Chambliss, Dianne Feinstein and Mitch McConnell in defending NSA surveillance programs as essential and effective for national security… Really? Then how come they can’t catch Edward Snowden?
In South Carolina, the Pickens County School District decided to eliminate prayer at all graduation ceremonies after they were “barraged” with complaints by atheist groups. Enter valedictorian Roy Costner IV, my new hero: Roy went onstage to deliver his pre-approved, sanitized and godless presentation to graduates and instead ripped up the speech and proceeded to recite the Lord’s Prayer and talk about how his Christian upbringing contributed to his success.
“Those that we look up to, they have helped carve and mold us into the young adults that we are today,” said Roy. “I’m so glad that both of my parents led me to the Lord at a young age. And I think most of you will understand when I say…” he paused. “Our Father, who art in Heaven, hallowed be Thy name…” The place went nuts as he finished the prayer. Isn’t it convenient to be an atheist when you’re surrounded by 250 years of Judeo-Christian law and morality keeping you safe? It’s ironic that if you dropped an atheist into a place like Darfur or North Korea they would find God in about 30 minutes.
Marco Rubio went on Spanish-language network Univision this past Sunday and speaking in Spanish, had this to say about the “Gang of Eight” immigration reform bill in Congress:
“The legalization is going to happen. That means the following will happen: First comes the legalization. Then come the measures to secure the border.”
Okay, so I’m no expert in foreign languages, and certainly have no proficiency in the Cuban, South American, Mexican, European Spanish or other Hispanic dialects and their bli subtleties when translated into English. Having said that, I’m pretty sure he just told around 80 million people who are probably dying to get into America that if they can just get here, they and their families will be given legal status before we bother locking them out. But that’s just me. Oh, yeah – and I kid you not – Senor Rubio also said; “Nobody is talking about preventing the legalization.”
The New York Times “unpublished” a story about Anthony Weiner and the women who were caught up in the sexting scandal which brought the former Congressman much shame, lies and unemployment. The Times originally put the article up on their website, quickly pulled it and said it was premature. The headline; “For Women in Weiner Scandal, Indignity Lingers,” still appears online, but all other parts of the Weiner story was yanked.
University of Chicago researchers say they may have found a link between a child’s name and the political leanings of their parents. Liberal parents prefer more feminine sounding names – especially ones beginning with “L” or with an “A” falling at the end, like Ella, Sophia, Liam, Lena, etc., while conservatives go for tougher sounding names with hard consonants – Kurt, Kim, Dick, etc. So when you meet little Buck, his parents probably went for Romney and his friend Lilia’s mom could just be an Obama voter. Also, the names “Doofus” or “Scabby” have a tendency to to be kids whose parents support Joe Biden for President in 2016…
Thanks, drive safely…
