Liberty junkies everywhere ought to be celebrating the fact that the Roman Catholic Church here in the US is sticking it to the GodKing and his fawning sycophant, Kathleen Sebelius, in suing over the HHS mandate. 12 separate lawsuits by over 40 different Catholic identities. Awesome. And more awesome, Notre Dame (NOTRE DAME!!!!) is on the list of litigants. That same Notre Dame that invited the GodKing to be commencement speaker in the recent past. The Democratic Party, I am sure, is muttering in its lattes about this, reassuring themselves that there is no way these suits can succeed; but also knowing deep down that such rationalizations are just that.
But, despite the fact that this represents the largest religious lawsuit in the history of the nation, there is much outrage in the Catholic Blogosphere that the MSM, in its Full Metal Tankage for its anointed GodKing, has said virtually nothing on the subject. (See here for an initial look at this as well as links to outside sources).
Really, is anyone truly surprised?

Got it. Don’t care. He could be lily white and I’d still fear and loathe him.
Now for the rest of you: HE’S BLACK. WE KNOW. WE DO NOT CARE. SHUT THE FUCK UP ABOUT IT ALREADY!!! Give it a rest. Lincoln is not smiling in his grave, MLK is not turning somersaults in heaven. We are post racial. Get the fuck over it already. To the extent that morons like Robert Siegel of NPR keep mooning over the fact is the extent to which we continue to perpetuate the myth that race matters. We (the American people we, not the people who fear and loathe 100% ADA liberals we) elected an African-American. That’s all three branches of government now (and the executive DID have Colin Powell and Condi Rice in the Bush White House. . .y’know). So, let it rest.
Just take a deep breath and
About it already.

President Hope Change.
Governor Gregoire. Again.
Stupid fucking brainless state voted for I-1000. BY 20 PERCENTAGE POINTS!!!!
I loathe my fellow man, which is too stupid to realize that they have elected a tyrant in Barack Obama, a crooked liar in the governor, and the incredible idiocy to vote for their own death out of convenience.
Here is what Washington looks like in four years:
Gay marriage is not only legal, but you are persecuted -and quite possibly out of a job- if you dare speak out against it.
People are being put to death –put to death– if their illness is too expensive to treat.
President Hope/Change’s regime insures that anyone who speaks out against his policies is at best wiretapped, at worst hounded out of the country, if not outright imprisoned.
They will nationalize health care, driving the standard of care so far down that the university system will become severely degraded, as scientific professsionals flee the country.
The media will be in a liberal straitjacket. Conservative talk-radio, -nothing that I love in any form, but necessary for a free republic- will be severely constrained.
The economy will be even further in the tank.
The ONLY bright spot in this never-ending stream of electoral idiocy is that the Senate is likely to still hold the filibuster for Republicans. That’s it.
The rest of this is a wash. This country is populated by at least 63 million total fucking idiots who believe this liberal dingbat is the salvation of the country.
The only comfort in that? AFter a positively DISASTROUS Bush II presidency, Hope/Change has only been able to muster 51% of the popular vote. That is some comfort.
However, compare this with McGovern, the only other candidate to receive a 95% or more rating from the ADA, and he got slaughtered by Nixon in ’72, the same Nixon whom people hated because of an unpopular war (Vietnam) and had an economy in the tank. Nixon won 62-38; that’s a fucking landslide.
Where are the brains of the electorate now?

No, seriously. FUCK YOU.
But what of the rest of the world? This is the reaction I fear most. For Obama has stirred an excitement around the globe unmatched by any American politician in living memory. Polling in Germany, France, Britain and Russia shows that Obama would win by whopping majorities, with the pattern repeated in Africa, Asia, the Middle East and Latin America. If November 4 were a global ballot, Obama would win it handsomely. If the free world could choose its leader, it would be Barack Obama.
If Americans choose McCain, they will be turning their back on the rest of the world, choosing to show us four more years of the Bush-Cheney finger. And I predict a deeply unpleasant shift.
Rachel Lucas has the smackdown on that mendacious horseshit about polling in other countries.
My main beef, other than that, is with this phrase:
If the free world could choose its leader, it would be Barack Obama.
Attention, British Asshat: We, the American people, are electing an American president.
Not the leader of the free world. We don’t have that authority. You don’t like who we elect, for our own fricking country? Then fix your own problems and stop looking to us to pull your chestnuts out of the fire.
In the meantime, STFU and GTFO the Internets, asshat.

. . .I have effectively locked the blog. Only approved observers (that pretty much being me) can view the4 blog, as I do not want students from my teaching blog accessing this one.
No more Pharyngula lurkers. Boo hoo hoo.
But, some quick commentary on the Sarah Palin for Veep choice, and the Left’s quick condemnation of her.
Comment 1: She’s inexperienced. File this under WTF? I mean, look at Obama’s experience.
Comment 2: Palin’s 5th child, Trig, is actually born by her daughter, Bristol. This is how the LEftie’s manage this one:
122. What many here don’t understand. It doesn’t matter if it’s true or not. RUMOR IS TRUTH.
The modern laws of media hype and political warfare have a useful tenet:
Repeat ANYTHING or raise false concern over ANYTHING and it is likely to be planted in the conscious/subconscious of many voters.
If people start to think that there might be something fishy with Palin’s last kid (if hers), then that’s FINE. One more doubt (whether tied to reality or not) is another hesitation at the ballot box.
GET WITH THE PROGRAM PEOPLE. The “rising above it” bullshit has served us so well in the past, hasn’t it?
If you have problems with the story, then STFU and get out of the way of Dems who are engaged in MODERN POLITICAL WARFARE. Go tend your garden or some other pedestrian task, because the “concern trolls” are not helping shape the message.
OK, then. Truth, beauty, nevermind. Start a meme, no matter how Out There, and expect the voters to latch on.
Nice. I keep hearing how the Dems are the ethical party.
Then there’s the fact that Bristol IS pregnant. Comments from everyone’s favorite idiot, Little Paul Myers:
The issues here should not be “OMG her daughter is pregnant out of wedlock”, but “What are the candidates proposed policies for dealing with the issue of teen pregnancy?” That Palin’s daughter is pregnant should not be of any concern to either campaign; that Palin’s policies of an active maintenance of reproductive ignorance are manifest failures is.
But you ARE turning it into an issue, Little Paul, when you bring the two together like that.
She’s pro-ignorance and anti-civil rights all the way, opposing gay marriage, sex education, and reproductive rights for women. No surprise at all, I know. Here are some answers that jumped out at me:
2. Will you support the right of parents to opt out their children from curricula, books, classes, or surveys, which parents consider privacy-invading or offensive to their religion or conscience?Why or why not?
SP: Yes. Parents should have the ultimate control over what their children are taught.
She wants kids to be taught only what the parents believe, which is a disaster for education. It dictates that the next generation can be no wiser, barring exceptional effort from the kids themselves, than the previous. This is an angle to give religion a trump card over science, and jingo priority over history, by making it easy to prevent kids from being exposed to reality.
Right. We now see that Little Paul believes that the State is the only being responsible enough to raise kids. Oy gevalt.
11. Are you offended by the phrase “Under God” in the Pledge of Allegiance? Why or why not?
SP: Not on your life. If it was good enough for the founding fathers, its good enough for me and I’ll fight in defense of our Pledge of Allegiance.
See Question 2 above. Do we really want stupid people dictating what people should learn?
No. That’s why we want PARENTS in charge of education. not you.
Here’s another answer from Palin that suddenly has more significance:
3. Will you support funding for abstinence-until-marriage education instead of for explicit sex-education programs, school-based clinics, and the distribution of contraceptives in schools?
SP: Yes, the explicit sex-ed programs will not find my support.
Now, are you ready to hear this?
Sarah and Todd Palin say their 17-year-old unmarried daughter is pregnant.The couple said in a statement released by John McCain’s presidential campaign that Bristol will keep her baby.
I’m flummoxed. Here’s another personal issue that is none of the voters’ business, that will distract the media from discussing the issues, yet it speaks directly to Palin’s support for bad reproductive and educational policy.
WTF is this moron’s problem? She is for abstinence-inly education. Her daughter then gets pregnant and wants to keep the baby. And again, he claims this is no issue to be discussed publicly, then he does just that.
Asshole. Brainless asshole.
President Hope Change Defines Sin August 11, 2008Posted by Administrator in Cultural Pessimism, Idiots, Liberal Hypocrisy, Mechanistic Relativism, Politics.
From the Westminster Shorter Catechism:
Q. 14. What is sin? A. Sin is any want of conformity unto, or transgression of, the law of God.
From the Baltimore Catechism:
Q. 278. What is actual sin? A. Actual sin is any willful thought, word, deed, or omission contrary to the law of God.
From Senator Obama:
Q. Do you believe in sin?
Q. What is sin?
OBAMA: Being out of alignment with my values.
Not that there is anything to the chatter about Senator Obama’s “Messiah complex,” mind you.
Mark finds this funny. I do not, though I usually agree with Mark. This is a classic example of why this inexperienced, silly little Illinoisan should NOT be President.
He now gets to define right and wrong, all on his own. God help us all if he is elected.

Seems that Obama is considering expanding the faith-based initiatives started by GW Bush. Right now, this is the ONLY thing about Obama that I can stand. I still won’t vote for the guy, though. However, what might cause me to vote for the Obamanator is the possibility of watching noted atheist moron PZ Myers’s head explode, as the committed Democrat will have to hold his nose and vote for a politician that -in terms of lip service, at least- is in favor of expanding aid to religious institutions.
He’s still proposing an expansion of Bush’s faith-based initiatives — he’s going to be handing out billions of dollars to religious organizations. It’s nice that he’s specifically saying there will be restrictions, that the money can’t be used in programs that discriminate, and it must be for secular purposes, but he’s still propping up a religious middleman between government aid and the people, and that’s a tool that will be used to proselytize indirectly, even if they don’t simply flout the rules. This is a bad idea.
Well, it’s a bad idea only when you’re an atheist nutjob who sees radical religious conspiracies under every collection plate. WHEN will this bearded blowhard come to terms with his fear of God? If he will simply admit that he is terrified that his Lutheran upbringing was possibly correct, then he can come to terms with it like a good Freudian misfit, and live his life out in fearful quiet in the wilds of Minnesota.
So, as a consolation, I do get to see him become agitated about this Obama/faith-based initiative sop to the religious of America. Twill be amusing to watch PZ get all atwitter about this. NOTHING else at this point is worth paying attention to in this wretched election year.

She ain’t working alone. Fresh from their own padded rooms come Denver mayor John Hickenlooper,
and “Greening Director” Andrea Robinson, whose stated goal is to provide “the most sustainable political convention in modern American history.”.
This includes having Garbage Nazis a Trash Brigade make sure that everything is disposed of properly.
Decked out in green shirts, 900 volunteers will hover at waste-disposal stations to make sure delegates put each scrap of trash in the proper bin. Lest a fork slip into the wrong container unnoticed, volunteers will paw through every bag before it is hauled away.
However, according to the WSJ, there are some snags on the road to true Greenness for our rezident hypocrites.
For instance, using all-cotton, union-made in USA fanny packs:
Official merchandiser Bob DeMasse scoured the country. His weary conclusion: “That just doesn’t exist.”
Ditto for the baseball caps. “We have a union cap or an organic cap,” Mr. DeMasse says. “But we don’t have a union-organic offering.”
Then there is the issue of precedent:
After all, the last time Democrats met in Denver — to nominate William Jennings Bryan in 1908 — they dispatched horse-drawn wagons to bring snow from the Rocky Mountains to cool the meeting hall. Ms. Robinson suspected modern-day delegates would prefer air conditioning. So she quickly modified the mayor’s goal: She’d supervise “the most sustainable political convention in modern American history.”
Can I make a suggestion? Use the 1908 version of cooling the blowhards self-important asshats delegates and candidates. Eliminate air conditioning. Ever given any thought on how THAT contributes to “global warming“?
While cooling needs increase energy use, heating needs reduce the amount. Since cooling (using electricity) is more inefficient than heating, the increase in primary energy use is amplified. Over time, the increase in cooling outweighs the decrease in heating leading to an overall increase.
The DNC this year is in Denver, August 25-28. Average daily temp in Denver in late August? 86 degrees Fahrenheit. Sounds like AC weather to me, especially when you’re talking about a bunch of overweight, overly self-important Democrats. But if they’re serious about this greening stuff, they’ll turn off the AC.
Think that’ll happen? Cold day in hell, and so on.
Actually, a guy named Fred Smith has the right idea:
Watching the greening frenzy from afar, Fred L. Smith Jr., president of the libertarian Washington think tank Competitive Enterprise Institute, suggested the Democrats could really shrink their footprint by staging a virtual-reality convention: “Just have everyone stay at home with their laptops, sitting in their pajamas, interacting through their avatars.”
Just imagine. All that vast carbon footprint brought about from travel, AC usage and tremendous amounts of Liberally Hypocritical Hot Air, gone.
But do you think Mayor Green would think that is such a great idea? The economic impact on Boston from the 2004 Hypocrisy Cattle Call DNC was estimated at $163 million. Think it will be any less in Denver? Even in a recession? Don’t count on it. There is NO WAY Mayor Green would dare even think about endorsing Smith’s brilliant Green Scheme for the DNC if it means the good people of Denver lose out on ‘prox $170 million.
I mean, Greening is all well and good. But economic growth comes first.
