M u s li ms are to busy teaching their people how to blow up white christians, you know the ones sending all the money to keep them alive.....If it wasn't so sad, this would allmost be hysterical. These are m u s li ms that are starving and not one m u s li m country around to help them out. That's what Africa gets for throwing out all the whites and than destroying every farm that these whites have build. Africans are to s t u p i d to run anything least of all a country. Look at the USA. Only 2 1/2 years in office and the damage is unbelievable!

On The Future of the GOP

Balloon Juice » Antidisestablishmentarianism: "Expect the fighting between the teahadists and the old-schoolers to get louder. Personally, I see the old-schoolers surrendering, which is why I think Perry is a more likely nominee than Romney."

Good thing Harlan Ellison isn’t alive — Genovese was one of his major signifiers (aka bludgeons) back in the 70s/80s.

On What The Closet Does To Republicans

Anti-Gay Marriage State Rep. Accused Of Offering Young Male Money 'For A Really Good Time' | TPMMuckraker"An Indiana state Representative, who recently voted for a constitutional amendment that would ban gay marriage, has been accused of using Craigslist to offer an 18-year old male $80 for 'a couple hours of your time tonight' plus a tip 'for a really good time.'

The Indianapolis Star obtained e-mails sent from Rep. Phillip Hinkle's (R) publicly listed personal address, responding to a Craigslist posting by Kameryn Gibson that said 'I need a sugga daddy.' Gibson told the Star that the post was in the 'Casual Encounters' section under m4m, or men for men. He used his sister Megan's e: "An Indiana state Representative, who recently voted for a constitutional amendment that would ban gay marriage, has been accused of using Craigslist to offer an 18-year old male $80 for 'a couple hours of your time tonight' plus a tip 'for a really good time.'

I don't know how miserable a life it must be to be closeted but it obviously turned this fellow bitter and self-hating. I truly pity him.

Twitter, Facebook, Crackberry under fire by authoritarians?

From the UK

Saying the "free flow of information" can sometimes be a problem, Cameron's government has summoned those two social-networking sites, as well as Research In Motion, makers of the BlackBerry, for a meeting to discuss their roles during the violent outbreaks.
"Everyone watching these horrific actions will be struck by how they were organized via social media," Cameron said Thursday during an address to Parliament. "Free flow of information can be used for good. But it can also be used for ill. And when people are using social media for violence, we need to stop them."

and from the US

Organizers planning to disrupt BART service on August 11, 2011 stated they would use mobile devices to coordinate their disruptive activities and communicate about the location and number of BART Police. A civil disturbance during commute times at busy downtown San Francisco stations could lead to platform overcrowding and unsafe conditions for BART customers, employees and demonstrators. BART temporarily interrupted service at select BART stations as one of many tactics to ensure the safety of everyone on the platform.

Yes they DID say that

Who's Really Responsible For U.S. Debt Downgrade | TPMDC: "Now that Standard & Poors has confirmed that the chorus of default doubters in the GOP was part of what spooked them into downgrading the U.S. credit rating, Republicans will do all they can to pretend that they never questioned the risk of missing payment obligations, or allowing borrowing authority to lapse. But they sure did! Here's a long, partial timeline of influential Republicans either vouchsafing default, or downplaying the consequences of passing the August 2 deadline without raising the debt limit."

Michele The Cable Gal?

Listening to Sean Hannity on the drive home today (I do it so you don't have to) and heard Michele Bachmann say not once but twice "Git R Done". Please tell me that isn't her new catchphrase.

Rick Perry For Preacher in Chief ?

Rick Perry Changes the Rules | Swampland: "Instead, religious liberty advocates including clergy from around Houston objected to Perry’s sponsorship of the revival because his position as governor is always political. Although he was introduced at The Response as simply “Rick Perry, Austin, Texas,” Perry can never set aside his official role. Again, Perry can pray to God in public. If he feels a need to ask for Christ’s forgiveness on behalf of the nation’s sins, he can do that at his church. He can attend an evangelical revival every day of the week if he wants to. But he cannot organize an evangelical Christian revival so that “as a nation” we can “call upon Jesus to guide us.”"
