Just Doing Your Job

Hold on. What? Crucify Him? You're not squeamish about the process one bit,

and if it's what it takes to quell some bothering riot you're all for it. You have plans for the weekend, after all. But damn it's gonna be hard to do quickly, because this guy Jesus apparently has a sizable following. Not that they are armed, but that many people can cause trouble if they want to. There goes your weekend plans for sure. Some talk about Him not staying dead, like all good examples of the tender mercies of Rome do. Great. Extra duty and no extra salt to show for it. -- | Primordial Slack

Robert Pierce told officers that he is the illegitimate son of President Dwight D. Eisenhower, and, according to the police report, he had documents in the car that appeared to support that claim.

The reverence these people get is even more disturbing.

An actor is merely repeating lines he read an hour ago, and he's doing it the way the director told him to a second ago. It's not a craft. It's karaoke without singing. Even the director's job is overrated. All he's doing is watching TV live and noticing when he doesn't like something. You know who else does that? Oh, everyone. -- 10 Things I Hate About LA

Carrey? Sorry,Not Funny

So if you want to understand why Jim Carrey is arguing about you with gun control on Twitter, it’s because his career and personal life have been in decline for a while and he’s looking for attention. -- The Decline and Fall of Jim Carrey

"Men are qualified for liberty

in exact proportion to their disposition to put moral chains upon their own appetites.... Society cannot exist, unless a controlling power upon will and appetite be placed somewhere; and the less of it there is within, the more there must be without. It is ordained in the eternal constitution of things, that men of intemperate minds cannot be free. Their passions forge their fetters." -- Edmund Burke [QQQ - Maggie's Farm]

Had Enough Therapy?

The Bag Lady Complex Symptomatic of an American cultural failure. For all of our zealous pursuit of lofty ideals like truth, justice and equality we have forgotten how to get along with other people.

He died on Good Friday. He said repeatedly that becoming a Christian believer was the most important event of his life. Born a Jew, he was baptized as an Anglican on Holy Thursday 15 years ago. And, he was received into the Catholic Church and took the sacraments, including Holy Unction, in his hospital room on Monday. -- View from the Right

The Revolutionary Diet Book

This book is designed for people who are overweight. The book formulates a perspective where weight loss is treated as a political act against a consumptive, capitalist, culture of excess. All other diet books promise 'beauty' 'beach bodies' and such nonsense, this book however, argues that weight-loss should stem from a desire to live in a world where resources are shared by all. by Revolutionary Books

    "I decline to accept the end of man.

    It is easy enough to say that man is immortal simply because he will endure:

    that when the last dingdong of doom has clanged and faded from the last worthless rock hanging tideless in the last red and dying evening, that even then there will still be one more sound: that of his puny inexhaustible voice, still talking. I refuse to accept this. I believe that man will not merely endure: he will prevail. -- William Faulkner - Banquet Speech

    Mother-in-Law Jokes Sully 2nd Day of Supreme Court Gay Marriage Hearings

    What’s the definition of mixed emotions?” Justice Ginsberg asked. “Watching your mother-in-law drive over a steep cliff in your brand new car.” The raucous laughter of the courtroom began to dissipate as Chief Justice Roberts playfully pounded his gavel and called for a 15 minute recess. Moments later outside the courtroom a lawyer for the plaintiffs summed up the feelings of his colleagues and clients: “What the f*ck was that?” -- Day's Rash

    So Noted

    Remember that notes made with a hard pencil will last longer than those made with ink,
    and be readable as long as the paper lasts. Every scientist and every surveyor knows this and it is only tenderfeet, who use a soft pencil and fountain pen for making field notes, because an upset canoe will blur all ink marks and the constant rubbing of the pages of the book will smudge all soft pencil marks. -- The Manly Tradition of the Pocket Notebook

    "Gay marriage was never the issue. It was always marriage."

    Sultan Knish: The Deconstruction of Marriage In the world that the deconstructionists are striving to build,

    there will be marriage, but it will mean nothing. Like a greeting card holiday, it will be an event, but not an institution. An old ritual with no further meaning. An egotistical exercise in attention-seeking and self-celebration with no deeper purpose. It will be a display every bit as hollow as the churches and synagogues it takes place in.

    Racial hypocrisy is national policy.

    Now we have the wave of savage attacks by gangs of blacks against whites. As any sentient being has noticed, the government and the media diligently hide these attacks.

    At least, the media have done so in the past. If feral blacks beat a white man into brain damage, we hear that it was done by teenagers, or youths, or children. (Whites are about half of the population of Washington, DC, and the rest are teenagers.) Race determines press coverage. But the censoring works less well now. The flies in the ointment of suppression are the cell cam, the surveillance camera, and the internet, the only free press we have. -- Fred On Everything
