A Brief History of the Apocalypse

Floaters been promotin’ “YOUR moral decay is going to get ME into heaven” for a helluva long time. According to Isaac Asimov’s Book of Facts the first predicted Apocalypse was in ca. 2800 BC. Even if you discount that for some reason, the next was in 634 BC.

Depending on how you define the Apocalypse, the end of HUMANS or the end of the WORLD, the real apocalypse comes in ca. 4,500,000,000 AD when the sun will swell into a red giant star, swallowing Mercury, Venus, Earth, and perhaps Mars. This will be the true end of the world!

Personally and IMNSHO, the way we burn shit to save time and effort, not to mention get around and generate electricity, is going to end the human race LONG before then. Maybe in this century. We’re probably already past the tipping point…

Consider this my public apology to my grand-kids/great grand-kids that I didn’t do more, and earlier, to battle the anthropogenic global climate change deniers. Starting with the Bible-thumpers, then moving on to Big Oil funded quasi-“scientist” and (you have to have seen this coming) Republicans and ESPECIALLY teabaggers…a “vast conspiracy” of scummy people determined to make the world a better worse place.

Crazy fuckers in the middle east, at it again. For not the first time in what, 3,000 years?

Air raid sirens in Tel Aviv as Hamas declares all Israelis targets

For discussion: would Obama/a Democratic POTUS or a GOP/teabagger POTUS be more likely to intervene in a century’s old religious war?

Please be prepared to defend you answer when Obama doesn’t commit US troops to this crazy ass-ed eons old religious war. Bonus points if you can find a GOP POTUS who DIDN’T “come to the aid of Israel” in a similar situation.

Jews vote for Democrats, and the GOP would love to absorb them into their hateful fold.

How Hobby Lobby Undermined The Very Idea of a Corporation

This gets complicated, but bear with us. Basically, what you need to know is that if you and some friends start a company that makes a lot of money, you’ll be rich, but if it incurs a lot of debt and fails, you won’t be left to pay its bills. The Supreme Court affirmed this arrangement in a 2001 case, Cedric Kushner Promotions vs. Don King:

linguistically speaking, the employee and the corporation are different “persons,” even where the employee is the corporation’s sole owner. After all, incorporation’s basic purpose is to create a distinct legal entity, with legal rights, obligations, powers, and privileges different from those of the natural individuals who created it, who own it, or whom it employs.

That separation is what legal and business scholars call the “corporate veil,” and it’s fundamental to the entire operation. Now, thanks to the Hobby Lobby case, it’s in question. By letting Hobby Lobby’s owners assert their personal religious rights over an entire corporation, the Supreme Court has poked a major hole in the veil. In other words, if a company is not truly separate from its owners, the owners could be made responsible for its debts and other burdens.

Maybe the pro-corporate religious-kook 5 have managed to undermine everything they stand for?

OK, I haven’t changed my mind. I think the North LOST the civil war, and the South would have been so ruthlessly crushed by reality that they’d have rejoined us, IF WE LET THEM, by now, that maybe letting them go off on their own little experiment where Biblically sanctioned slavery was “Okey-Dokey” might have been a better outcome of the Civil War. Hard lessons learned are often lessons retained. Unlike our current situation.

I’ve also posted this link several times.

But this is funny’ the only confederate flat that matters:

AKA, red-beans-and-rice grits eating surrender monkeys…

Believing that “my God can beat up your God” is no way to run a planet.

BANGUI, Central African Republic (AP) – Heavily armed peacekeepers escorted some of the last remaining Muslims out of Central African Republic’s volatile capital on Sunday, trucking more than 1,300 people who for months had been trapped by violent Christian militants.

If monotheistic religions (Judaism, Christianity, Islam) won’t end themselves by attrition, we need to end them by ridicule and pointing out their own internal hypocrisy.

Did you know that James Dobson’s group American Family Association is a far-right “christian” hate group?

Look, I don’t care if you want to make sandwiches by placing two slices of bologna, a slice of cheese, and some lettuce between two slices of Jesus. I mean, seriously, I don’t claim to understand how a wafer and some wine changes into Jesus in your stomach, but if that’s what you choose to believe, it doesn’t affect me.

But going to war over religion is no longer cool. WWTD; what would Timbuk do? Well, for one, I wouldn’t fucking go to war over your (fucked up) belief that two men (or women) in love shouldn’t be allowed to marry. Or your (fucked up) belief that Jeebus can beat up the Flying Spaghetti Monster. Or your (fucked up) belief that it’s somehow our DUTY to allow an already wealthy 1% to gain even more wealth by fucking up the only planet we have to live on (read that as Koch brothers trying to increase taxes on solar panels). Or …

If you want to argue that the US is less than perfect, I can’t disagree, but I’d ask you to look at Saudi Arabia, where petroleum oozes out of the ground like pus oozes out of a pestilent wound, yet women can’t drive because of Sharia law. Where would you rather live?

Ah, well, I’m either preaching to the choir or arguing with the faithful (who, by definition, cannot be persuaded), so never mind.

The McCutcheon decision, Paul Ryan’s budget, and Obamacare deniers all say what the GOP can’t: We protect the well-off from redistribution of their wealth to those who don’t deserve it.

Republicans and Republican enablers disgust me.

…is at root of 21st-century wars, says Tony Blair.

Never thought I’d agree with B’liar after his relentless push for pointless war in Iraq, but then again, even a stopped clock is right twice a day.

I, personally, don’t exclude RW fundie nutbags right here in the good ol’ US of A from the list of “extremist religions”. The US bible belt is probably responsible for more killing more US soldiers than Exxon. Maybe. Well, it’s at least close.

We really need to find a way to crush US fundamentalist’s influence on politics, once and for all.

…and Ted Cruz is definitely nuts.


Rafael Cruz, Father Of Ted Cruz, Wants “Great Transfer Of Wealth” Into Hands Of Evangelicals Like Himself

The father of right wing Texas Senator Ted Cruz, the most visible leader of the now-ended government shutdown, is seen in recently uncovered videos calling for America to be ruled by “kings” who will take money from anyone who is not an evangelical Christian and deliver it into the hands of fundamentalist preachers and their acolytes.

Megachurch preacher Larry Huch suggested that Rafael Cruz’s own son, Ted, is one of those “kings.” And in fact, at a ceremony this past July Ted Cruz was “anointed” by a group of fundamentalist preachers in a special blessing ceremony.

::snip::

The difference is that in Cruz’s scheme, the transfer will occur through a war against “the wicked” led by Christian preachers who will take the wealth from nonbelievers.

Grab some popcorn, and compare and contrast to:

GOP civil war! Poll shows Tea Party disdains religious right

Remember when Evangelicals were the staple of the Republican coalition? Turn them out and you could win any national election. Well, they are fast becoming the fringe of the GOP, based on recently released research from focus groups conducted by Stan Greenberg, James Carville and Erica Seifert for Democracy Corps.

The GOP is now roughly split into three factions: one-third Evangelical, one-quarter Tea Party and one-quarter moderates. These focus groups, which were purposely assembled homogeneously to encourage participation, were chosen because they comprise the base of the Republican Party.

Now, no one who knows me, or has read anything that I’ve written, is going to think I’d be dismayed if the fundie-nutbag brigade, the bug-fuck nuts teabaggers, AND the GOP went away.

I mean, I honestly believe that opposing points of view in government is a good thing. Just not when one of those points of view either;

A) believes it’s representing God and if you disagree you shouldn’t be compromised with, or;

B) believes it’s “right”, and therefore “compromise” is a dirty word.

But in these two seemingly conflicted stories, one sentence stands out: “Turn them out and you could win any national election.”

With the GOP its all about power. They simply refuse to accept that their ideas are unpopular and they lose elections.

Clinton was impeached over a blowjob. Obama’s been opposed in EVERYTHING he’s tried to do, in the form of more filibusters than ever before in history, and 42 fucking votes to abolish or defund Obamacare.

The GOP are wrong about everything, but I don’t understand why anyone would want to replace them with petulant children (teabaggers) who hold their breath when they don’t get their way.

We will continue to have a 2-party system.

How’s about we find a way to make that second party center-left of the Democrats, for a change?

…when the voters are so mentally deficient?

Poll: Louisiana GOPers Unsure If Katrina Response Was Obama’s Fault

A significant chunk of Louisiana Republicans evidently believe that President Barack Obama is to blame for the poor response to the hurricane that ravaged their state more than three years before he took office.

Honestly, how can “the greatest country in the history of the world”(TM) continue to be synonymous with “America” when the people who elect “our” representatives insist that it is their right to vote based on such stupidity? This is willful stupidity on the scale of the sores board.

Michele Bachmann retiring under fire

Less than two years ago, she won the Iowa straw poll and was briefly regarded as a serious contender for the GOP presidential nomination.

Rep. Bachmann will not run for reelection in 2014

In October 2008, appearing on MSNBC’s “Hardball,” she questioned whether then-Sen. Barack Obama, the Democratic presidential nominee, held “very anti-American views.” The moment brought deep condemnation from critics and sent independent voters in her district into the arms of an otherwise unknown challenger. But it also brought Bachmann millions of dollars in small donations from conservatives around the country — she narrowly won re-election and became the first congressional tea party star.

Good-bye, crazy lady. You were entertaining.
