British Al Qaeda On Strike

June 2, 2010 at 10:38 am (News & Politics)

  [My buddy Scott passed this on to me.] 
 
 Muslim suicide bombers in Britain are set to begin a three-day strike this week
in a dispute over the number of virgins they are entitled to in the afterlife.  Emergency
talks with Al Qaeda have so far failed to produce an agreement.

   The unrest began last Tuesday when Al Qaeda announced that the number of virgins
a suicide bomber would receieve after his death would be cut by 25% this month, from
72 to only 60.  The rationale for the cut was the increase in the number of suicide
bombers and a subsequent shortage of virgins in the afterlife.

   The suicide bombers’ union, the British Organization of Occupational Martyrs (B.O.O.M.)
responded with a statement that this was unacceptable to its members, and immediately
balloted for strike action.  General Secretary Abdullah Amir told the press: “Our members
are literally working themselves to death in the cause of Jihad.  We don’t ask for much in
return, but to be treated like this is a kick in the teeth.”
  
   Speaking from the shed in Tipton in the West Midlands in which he now resides, Al Qaeda
chief executive Osama bin Laden explained, “We sympathize with our workers’ concerns but
Al Qaeda is simply not in a position to meet their demands.  They are simply not accepting
the realities of modern-day Jihad in a competitive marketplace.

   “Thanks to Western depravity, there is now a chronic shortage of virgins in the afterlife.
It’s a straight choice between reducing expenditure and laying people off.  I don’t like
cutting wages but I’d hate to have to tell 3000 of my staff that they won’t be able to blow
themselves up.”

   Spokespersons for the union in the Northeast of England, Ireland, Wales and the entire
Australian continent stated that the strike would not affect their operations, since “there are
no virgins in their areas anyway.”

   Apparently, the drop in the number of suicide bombings has been put down to the emergence
of that Scottish singing star, Susan Boyle.  Now that Muslims know what a virgin looks like,
they are not so keen on going to Paradise.

Court Rules ‘Under Gawd’ As Constitutional In Pledge of Allegiance

March 14, 2010 at 6:38 pm (News & Politics)

This obliterates the line between Choich and State, and makes me whanna puke.

San Francisco, Calif., Mar 13, 2010 / 07:02 pm (CNA/EWTN News).- A San Francisco court ruled Thursday that the phrase “one nation under God” in the Pledge of Allegiance does not violate the Establishment Clause of the United States Constitution.

The decision, made by the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals in San Francisco, reverses a 2002 rejection of the phrase which was backed at the time by atheist activist Dr. Michael Nedow. Non-profit civil rights law firm the Beckett Fund began to argue the 2002 decision with the Court two years ago.

“The Ninth Circuit finally stood up for the Pledge,” said Kevin J. “Seamus” Hasson of the Becket Fund who argued the case. “The Court has just said what was self-evident to Thomas Jefferson and the signers of our Declaration of Independence in 1776 – our rights are unalienable precisely because they come not from the State, but from the Creator.”

The Court was influenced in its ruling by the Beckett Fund’s argument for the constitutionality of the words “under God” in the pledge. The non-profit group stated that Congress’ purpose in devising the pledge was “to underscore the political philosophy of the Founding Fathers that God granted certain inalienable rights to the people which the government cannot take away.”

The Beckett Fund also acted in the case on behalf of parents and schoolchildren in the Sacramento public school district as well as the Knights of Columbus who spearheaded the initiative to add “under God” to the Pledge of Allegiance in 1955.

“This decision is a victory for common sense,” Supreme Knight Carl A. Anderson said on Thursday. “Today, the Court got it absolutely right: recitation of the Pledge is a patriotic exercise, not a religious prayer. Best of all, the Court said that the words ‘under God’ add a ‘note of importance which a Pledge to our Nation ought to have and which in our culture ceremonial references to God arouse.’ Every reasonable person knows that, and today’s decision is a breath of fresh air from a court system that has too often seemed to be almost allergic to public references to God.”

“This is a very good day for America,” Anderson added.

In their decision on Thursday, the Ninth Circuit also asserted that because saying the pledge is voluntary, efforts by the plaintiffs to remove certain parts of it is an attempt to suppress the free speech of others. “What is at issue is not saying the Pledge or affirming a belief in God. What is at issue is whether Roechild (Dr. Newdow’s anonymous client) can prevent other students, who have no such objection, from saying the Pledge,” stated the court.

Health Care Bill A Bit Wordy?

October 31, 2009 at 7:46 pm (News & Politics)

 

Ya think?

The entire Declaration of Independence, including all 56 signatures, is contained on a single hand-written sheet of paper.
The full and complete original Constitution of the United States of America is printed on six pages. The first four pages contain the basic text of the founding document. Page five is the letter of transmittal to the British government. And the sixth and final page contains all ten of the initial amendments, known as the Bill of Rights.
Karl Marx laid out The Communist Manifesto in a mere 23 pages.
The English translation of Dostoevski’s Crime and Punishment is 718 pages, while Tolstoy’s War and Peace weighs in at 1,225 pages.
And try as she might, even Ayn Rand could manage only 1,069 pages in her magnum opus, Atlas Shrugged.
My personal, large-print New King James copy of the Bible contains 1,426 pages of text, a 64-page concordance and six pages of maps.
What do these momentous documents have in common with each other? They all contain fewer pages than the bloated Senate health care bill, S. 1796, which totals a ridiculous 1,502 pages.

Is Capitalism A “Sin”? Maybe So, However…

October 4, 2009 at 8:50 pm (News & Politics, Unzipped Thoughts)

m moore
… I saw Micheal Moore’s new movie, “Capitalism- A Love Story,” the other day. Many of the clowns in the documetary, asked to determine whether Capitalism is a “sin,” come from an organization whose own sins and imprproties are so hainus by comparrison [two examples: using kids as hand puppets, and denying condoms in Africa] to the sins of Capitalism, I couldn’t help laughing out loud. Those of you cretins who have never sinned…
I hope Mr. Moore takes on his beloved Catholic Church [a maligncy] with the vervor he promises in the open letter bellow:

For Those of You on Your Way to Church This Morning …a note from Michael Moore
Sunday, October 4th, 2009
Friends,
I’d like to have a word with those of you who call yourselves Christians (Muslims, Jews, Buddhists, etc., can read along, too, as much of what I have to say, I’m sure, can be applied to your own spiritual/ethical values).
In my new film (“Capitalism – A Love Story”) I speak for the first time in one of my movies about my own spiritual beliefs. I have always believed that one’s religious leanings are deeply personal and should be kept private. After all, we’ve heard enough yammerin’ in the past three decades about how one should “behave,” and I have to say I’m pretty burned out on pieties and platitudes considering we are a violent nation who invades other countries and punishes our own for having the audacity to fall on hard times.
I’m also against any proselytizing; I certainly don’t want you to join anything I belong to. Also, as a Catholic, I have much to say about the Church as an institution, but I’ll leave that for another day (or movie).
Amidst all the Wall Street bad guys and corrupt members of Congress exposed in “Capitalism: A Love Story,” I pose a simple question in the movie: “Is capitalism a sin?” I go on to ask, “Would Jesus be a capitalist?” Would he belong to a hedge fund? Would he sell short? Would he approve of a system that has allowed the richest 1% to have more financial wealth than the 95% under them combined?
I have come to believe that there is no getting around the fact that capitalism is opposite everything that Jesus (and Moses and Mohammed and Buddha) taught.
All the great religions are clear about one thing: It is evil to take the majority of the pie and leave what’s left for everyone to fight over. Jesus said that the rich man would have a very hard time getting into heaven. He told us that we had to be our brother’s and sister’s keepers and that the riches that did exist were to be divided fairly. He said that if you failed to house the homeless and feed the hungry, you’d have a hard time finding the pin code to the pearly gates.
I guess that’s bad news for some of us. Here’s how we define “Blessed Are the Poor” in America: We now have the highest unemployment rate since 1983. There’s a foreclosure filing once every 7.5 seconds. 14,000 people every day lose their health insurance.
At the same time, Wall Street bankers (“Blessed Are the Wealthy”?) are amassing more and more loot — and they do their best to pay little or no income tax (last year Goldman Sachs’ tax rate was a mere 1%!). Would Jesus approve of this? If not, why do we let such an evil system continue? It doesn’t seem you can call yourself a Capitalist AND a Christian — because you cannot love your money AND love your neighbor when you are denying your neighbor the ability to see a doctor just so you can have a better bottom line. That’s called “immoral” — and you are committing a sin when you benefit at the expense of others.
When you are in church this morning, please think about this. I am asking you to allow your “better angels” to come forward. And if you are among the millions of Americans who are struggling to make it from week to week, please know that I promise to do what I can to stop this evil — and I hope you’ll join me in not giving up until everyone has a seat at the table.
Thanks for listening. I’m off to Mass in a few hours. I’ll be sure to ask the priest if he thinks J.C. deals in derivatives or credit default swaps. I mean, after all, he must’ve been good at math. How else did he divide up two loaves of bread and five pieces of fish equally amongst 5,000 people? Either he was the first socialist or his disciples were really bad at packing lunch. Or both.
Yours,
Michael Moore
