I Really Don't Care

About Tim Tebow.

That said, I do agree with many of the insights in this piece, and at the end of the day, its a freakin' football game. If there is a god, I doubt he cares about the outcome, but if Tebow wants to make a show of his faith, so what? And if other players want to mock his piety, again, so what?

Kentucky Church Shows Its True Color

That color would be "white."

A small Pike County church has voted not to accept interracial couples as members or let them take part in some worship activities.

Sheesh, wonder what the pastor's vestments are? White robe and hood??

In early November, Thompson proposed the church go on record saying that while all people were welcome to attend public worship services there, the church did not condone interracial marriage, according to a copy of the recommendation supplied by the Harvilles.
The proposal also said "parties of such marriages will not be received as members, nor will they be used in worship services" or other church functions, with the exception of funerals.

Thankfully, the community at large is critical of this repugnant stand.

Hey! My Canary Is Dead!!

Wondering if this will ever sink in with the dunderheads?

Arctic air temperatures were higher – about 2.5 degrees F (1.5 degrees C) higher in 2011 than the baseline number for the previous 30 years – and there was a dramatic loss of sea ice and glacier mass, the scientists said in a telephone briefing. With less bright ice to reflect sunlight, and more dark open water to absorb it, the Arctic’s changed characteristics are likely to feed on each other and accelerate.

While I'm not comfortable in saying every prediction has come to pass, I am confident in asserting that nearly every prediction for what global warming will entail has come, or is coming to be. But since it might mean a few less coin in the Koch brothers' pockets, we cannot do anything about it.

The Grover

I never knew Muppets had so much power!

The Grover has spoken. A tax increase on millions of Americans is not actually a tax increase because the Social Security Tax Holiday is temporary and will expire without Congressional action to extend it.

But, The Grover does not apply the same logic to every temporary tax cut with an expiration date. As a demigod who makes the rule, The Grover can also break them. In a complete flip-flop, The Grover has also ruled that letting the temporary Bush Tax cuts for the top 1% expire in January 2013 would be increasing taxes. Strange are the ways of The Grover and one should never expect consistency from a conservative grifter demigod.

I think equating Norquist to a Muppet is appropriate, as his ideas and pronouncements appeal to the toddler-level intellect of most conservative politicians. No, scratch that. My two-year old has a greater intellect than most conservative politicians.

A Club of Liars, Demagogues and Ignoramuses

As usual, if you want actual political commentary, you got to go to the foreign media.

They lie. They cheat. They exaggerate. They bluster. They say one idiotic, ignorant, outrageous thing after another. They've shown such stark lack of knowledge -- political, economic, geographic, historical -- that they make George W. Bush look like Einstein and even cause their fellow Republicans to cringe.
"When did the GOP lose touch with reality?" wonders Bush's former speechwriter David Frum in New York Magazine. In the New York Times, Kenneth Duberstein, Ronald Reagan's former chief-of-staff, called this campaign season a "reality show," while Wall Street Journal columnist and former Reagan confidante Peggy Noonan even spoke of a "freakshow."

Thanks Teabaggers!

There Are Days....

....when I can access my comments, and there are days when I cannot. Today appears to be a "cannot" day. Sigh.
