Quote of the Week II

“You can only vote once — this isn’t Chicago, now,” 

- Barack Obama at a rally in Milwaukee for Democrat gubernatorial candidate Mary Burke.

Really funny. He should have said "yet" instead of "now".

In Which Atheists Out Themselves as an Actual Religion

If The Freedom From Religion Foundation (FFRF), a militant atheist group, gets its way, it may be handing out controversial pamphlets in several Florida public high schools depicting a lecherous human-like Bible sexually assaulting a young woman.

The pamphlet is entitled: “An X-Rated Book: Sex and Obscenity in the Bible,” and its cover features a cartoon illustration of a humanized Bible with a face, arms, and legs, reaching under the dress of a screaming woman who is trying to escape.

The FFRF’s plans to distribute that and other atheist pamphlets at some Orange County high schools is at the center of a controversial dispute that has pitted school officials promoting appropriate environments for students against the atheist group asserting its First Amendment rights.

The pamphlet includes Biblical passages mentioning sex, nudity and circumcision, excerpts that the FFRF deems “obscene” and is including in its pamphlet to make a point that the Bible also contains explicit material.

On National Religious Freedom Day, which is Jan. 16, the Orange County Public Schools have allowed outside religious groups to passively distribute approved literature, like Bibles, for students to take should they choose. According to reports, FFRF plans to distribute “An X-Rated Book” and other pamphlets in 11 public high schools in Orange County, Florida, next year.

So, they are actively proselytizing for their beliefs AND participating in an event intended for religious groups

If they were going after people other than Christians, the DOJ and the SPLC would have them targeted as a hate group by now.

Of course, it's nice to see people standing up for what they don't believe in. LOL 

Let me know when they go after the Qur'an. I'll bring the popcorn.

Genuine A**holes

Apparently, in the Bronx, two brothers who had recently immigrated to the borough from Senegal were beaten and severely injured by several people who called them “Ebola.”

The boys, in sixth and eighth grade, were attacked Friday afternoon at I.S. 318 in Tremont (not Tremont, IL).

These people need to be found and severely cock-punched.

Could non-citizens decide the November election?

That scary headline is from the right-wing extremist newspaper The Washington Post.

Read the rest including how it's possible both Weird Al Franken and Dear Leader slithered into office on the illegal vote.

Link

For those too lazy (or liberal) to click:

"Because non-citizens tended to favor Democrats (Obama won more than 80 percent of the votes of non-citizens in the 2008 CCES sample), we find that this participation was large enough to plausibly account for Democratic victories in a few close elections. 


Non-citizen votes could have given Senate Democrats the pivotal 60th vote needed to overcome filibusters in order to pass health-care reform and other Obama administration priorities in the 111th Congress. Sen. Al Franken (D-Minn.) won election in 2008 with a victory margin of 312 votes. Votes cast by just 0.65 percent of Minnesota non-citizens could account for this margin. 

It is also possible that non-citizen votes were responsible for Obama’s 2008 victory in North Carolina. Obama won the state by 14,177 votes, so a turnout by 5.1 percent of North Carolina’s adult non-citizens would have provided this victory margin."

Now I know that there are those out there that actually believe this is perfectly OK so long as the "right people/party" gets elected (Randall, Stoner, Olly, Elaine...) but really....

Adult Joke

I have deleted the joke as I realized I was lowering myself to Democrat levels.
