Any other nominees?
I guess caring about who is the next Pope is a bit like caring about who is the next Prime Minister of Spain. Isn’t my leader, but is a leader with nontrivial power in the world. I remember last time thinking that there was some small chance that change would lead to some positive steps. But then they chose this one, and…
Ya gotta love succinct. And Philly liberals.
…spotted in water sample extracted from hidden Antarctic lake.
The U.S. scientists in charge of the project to drill into Lake Whillans — known as the Whillans Ice Stream Subglacial Access Research Drilling, or WISSARD — will be more circumspect: They’ll have to demonstrate that the green-glowing cells are truly alive and capable of growing in culture. They’ll also conduct tests to make sure that the microbes are indigenous to the lake, rather than the result of contamination from the drilling operation.
I’m too tired to expand on this, tonight, but may post some more thoughts on it, soon. For now, the implications of the potentil for life on Europa are real, and could confirm that potential life (e.g. DNA) was “dusted” throughout the solar system prior to planet formation, for example.
Put another way, if there’s life a half mile below the ice in Antarctica, life on a moon like Europa wouldn’t be surprising, at all.
The implications of DNA seeded throughout the solar system are even more thought-provoking. It *may* mean that the planets circling the star that went supernova and gave us gold had life circling it, as well.
Deep thoughts about life, mortality, and how we’ll survive the death of our own sun…
Of course, christo-fascist fundie nutbags are incapable of considering such things, “God” (in their limited view) favoring the USA, or perhaps earth, as the hot bed of growing up “God’s children” and all being so limited when it comes to the grand scheme of things…
Never-Before-Seen Footage of Secret Mormon Temple Rituals
Related; Billy Graham site removes Mormon ‘cult’ reference after Romney meeting. That’s “deeply held religious beliefs”, for ya. Malleable as warm butter, when it suits your needs, eh, Billy? Or maybe you’re just an uneducated butthole who’s been foisting his political views off on people even dumber than you are for generations? Watch the movie, Billy. Maybe you’ll finally either find God, or decide for the stupid fuckers who think you have God’s phone number that She has changed her mind?
I can’t believe I have to write a book here to make the point that individual fundie nutbags are either hypocritical, limb-chewing sacks of denial of reality, or they’re dumber than a bag of hammers, do I? I mean, you guys aren’t 10 pounds of stupid packed into a 5 pound box like they are, right?
Fundie zombies are beneath contempt, entirely unable to think for themselves. I think I’m going to start spitting on them when I meet them. They’ll enjoy it, certain that it’s proof that their beliefs are stronger than “the evil within” me, and I just might enjoy it, too. Win-win.
Whatever. They don’t believe in God. They believe anything some (human) preacher tells them to believe, and if they vote, they vote Republican. They’re idiots, and if I believed in such things I’d wager that Billy Graham will spend eternity in hell having butt sex with Jerry Falwell, for duping so many people for so long.
Obama is NOT “just like Bush”. Junior is in a class by himself. Worst.President.Ever.
I remember his first few months. He wanted to build star wars (to enrich his Daddy via the Carlyle Group). He paid NO attention to terrorism, bin Laden, Richard Clark…
The bumbling, incompetent fool nearly wrecked this country, and the world economy. Repeal everything that passed while he was POTUS, starting with the tax giveaway to the wealthy.
How anyone can vote for a Republican, again, after the Bush years is completely beyond me. When someone tells me they’re considering voting for a Republican I lose respect for them, instantly. The GOP has gone completely insane.
The person who ordered the foreclosure, whether or not they can be found, and the CEO of the bank, should stand in front of a judge and answer for a crime like this.
The owners of a modest home near Twentynine Palms lost their cherished possessions after a bank mistakenly foreclosed their residence.
Alvin, a retired mason, built the home with his father when he was a teenager. “I know every inch, every rock…my mom mixed all the cement by hand,” he said.
For some reason, this reminds me of a story from (around) 2000. A MEXICAN man living in SoCal had withdrawn a LOT of money (if memory serves it was $40K) to pay off his mortgage, the next day. Holding that amount of money, he had a pistol sitting next to him while he watched teevee before going to bed.
Meanwhile, the local cops had been issued an arrest warrant FOR THE HOUSE NEXT DOOR. A single mother’s kids had been fingered for selling small amounts of marijuana to some neighbors/classmates.
You can probably guess what happened, next. You know how this story ends.
The cops raided the wrong house, the Mexican dude reacted to someone breaking down his front door while he’s sitting on 40 grand by grabbing his pistol, and the cops shot him dead.
To the best of my knowledge, not a single “authority” went to jail over this senseless murder.
Which goes a long way toward explaining why “we” feel like “we can’t trust the government”.
But we SHOULD OWN the government.
Now, please spare me the bizarre, incoherent rant about how this is all the fault of Obama and Democrats. I can’t hear you when you do that.
What can WE do to retake control from corporations who support evil groups like ALEC, and set things right, again?
Special bonus points for using words and phrases like “organize” and “awareness” and “popular support/movement”, and overwhelming negatives for blaming this on any politician, or party. It’s the fault of the current “winner take all” mentality in this country. Make enough money, or win public office (if you’re from the right party) and you’re above the law. (And yes, you merciless fuckers, I include Obama in that “from the right party” shit. I just don’t see how a police murder in CA in 2000, or this foreclosure, is his fault.)
The wealthy and the authoritarians literally (h/t Joe Biden) get away with murder and breaking and entering.
How do we set this right?
Mr. Paul, in an interview, said convention planners had offered him an opportunity to speak under two conditions: that he deliver remarks vetted by the Romney campaign, and that he give a full-fledged endorsement of Mr. Romney. He declined.
“It wouldn’t be my speech,” Mr. Paul said. “That would undo everything I’ve done in the last 30 years. I don’t fully endorse him for president.”

As much as everyone would like to believe this bus is being driven by a bunch of rubes who will (naturally) get their comeuppance, it just isn’t. There’s a boatload of money behind all these guys. But they aren’t just craven corporatists, although they are that. They are hardcore ideologues as well.
It’s fun to pretend, (as “The Fix” did last night on twitter) that this is the result of a grassroots uprising. But unless you think that the billionaires who are funding Freedomworks are just good ole boys down to the townhall speakin’ their minds, you’re on the wrong track.
IMO, the Democratic party is not perfect. I don’t defend everything Barack Obama does. I don’t defend everything that ANY member of the Democratic party does.
Again, IMO, the only perfect candidate is me. IMO.
But the GOP is perfectly evil.
Do away with SS? Check.
Do away with medicare? Check.
Take our retirement accounts? Check.
Take our pensions? Check.
Declare this to be a “christian” nation, in defiance of the constitution and everything that’s holy? Check.
Deny voting rights? Check.
Gawd, the list goes on. Do I really have to?
Fuck the environment? Check.
A woman’s right to a legal medical procedure? Check.
Tax cuts for people making more than $250K/year matter more than middle class tax cuts? Check.
It just goes on and on. The GOP is in full-on assault mode against “us”.
The Democratic party isn’t perfect. Give me a green party or progressive party who can defeat the GOP candidate (who is ALWAYS well-funded by some rich fucker). I’ll vote for them.
But I’ll ALWAYS vote to defeat the GOP.
And I ALWAYS vote.
