Our chimerical president still tells tales about Obamacare. The question is does anyone believe him anymore?

Anyone that thinks Obamacare will be better, baster, cheaper is living in a chimerical world.

Knowing that “chimera” exists, why would you name a pharmaceutical company Chimerix?

In the spirit of the WFTD, chimerical "science" abounds on the left.
Also, I just found a cool site and like the format and writing.

Obamacare is no less chimerical than the original beast from Greek Mythology.


America demands Justice for the Fallen of Benghazi!

EAGLES UP! Once more unto the breach, my friends, once more!

Listen, O isles, unto me; and hearken, ye people, from far; The LORD hath called me from the womb; from the bowels of my mother hath he made mention of my name. (Isaiah 49:1 KJV)

Now I’m confused. The article I read earlier about the albino chimera coast redwood tree both meets and denies the first definition. It IS highly improbable (only a few exist in the world), but WAS NOT created by highly fanciful imagination, unless you consider God’s imagination fanciful, which would mean everything is chimerical.

On “The Soup” this week, they showed a clip from one of the “SVU” cop shows.

As some sort of fraternity prank, they got a guy drunk and then dropped him off in a gay bar. Someone hits on him and he beat the guy up.

The guy is oblivious, so the cops are explaining to him why it was not so strange that a man hit on him in that bar.

“It’s a gay bar”

“But ... there was hockey on the TVs”

retrieved xsboy from Union station last night around 11:30pm. Interview went well, but the return transportation was a nightmare. He was confirmed on a 10pm flight from Newark, was in the car being driven to the Newark airport and checked his phone to see that that flight was canceled and they put him on a flight to Reagan at 5 pm TODAY [yeah, that’s great] So he’s texting me, i’m texting xshub who is in Tampa, he gets a train reservation leaving Newark at 8 pm and in to Union station at 11, same time the flight was due to arrive. so ok, i am hoping to be able to relax about his travel, i said text me when you are on the train. So at 8pm he calls saying there was some problem with the train, he’s got to get on some OTHER train, NJTransit train to go to ANOTHER station, and supposedly would get on the same train #175 for union station. He’s exhausted, drained from getting up at the buttcrack of dawn having an all day interview and then having these travel issues. I have no idea what he’s doing, HE’s not sure what he’s doing, and i know JACK about amtrak in general. xshub is at a Tampa Bay Lightning game, i am calling him to help resolve this, and while i was grateful he answered, he was inaudible bc they were sounding the damn horn bc TB scored, RME! long story short he made whatever connection that was and got on the train, was able to sleep some, but had not eaten since the lunch Verizon provided. He has a cough and cold, and i am sure he will sleep til afternoon today. The interview itself went well. he was initially gratified to see that the other interviewees that were picked up by the same car looked like huge nerds, until later when he saw that the interviewers were just OLDER nerds, LOL! There were 50 interviewees in the afternoon session, another 50 in the AM session and apparently 50 the day before. They have 90 positions in a variety of cities. He said the HQ was enormous, consisting of 9 buildings.

ah yes, Hans Kung is a Francis lover:

Other major liberal Catholic players of the past have resurfaced during Francis’ pontificate, and come out strongly in favour of the pope’s new “style.” Celebrity Swiss theologian and long-time academic opponent of Pope Benedict XVI, Hans Kung, has recently stated that with the election of Francis he sees no need now to oppose the pope. Kung said he is “overjoyed” about Pope Francis. “He has already achieved some things that can no longer be withdrawn,” Kung told Südwestpresse. “To think that he was not a reformer, would be to close our eyes to the facts.” Kung was a bitter opponent of Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger/Pope Benedict, clashing repeatedly over the full roster of liberal causes, including abortion, homosexuality, contraception and female ordination and papal infallibility, among others. In 1979 the Vatican removed his faculties to teach as a Catholic theologian. The censure launched Kung into the realm of professional anti-Catholic spokesmen and he became an instant celebrity, doing lecture and book tours outlining his objections to Catholic teaching. Despite his open and insistent denial of key Catholic teachings, Kung has been allowed to remain a priest in good standing throughout the pontificates of John Paul II and Benedict XVI. He told Südwestpresse that although Francis’ program remains unclear, the signals he has been sending from the first minute of his pontificate are ringing clearly. “I have made many proposals for reform in the course of my life. But that a Pope could leave the papal palace in such an elegant way. I could not imagine.” Meanwhile, the homosexualist movement has unofficially adopted Francis’ comment last year as its most popular recent slogan. A social networking website launched T-shirts featuring the pope’s face and the caption, “Who am I to judge?” Pope Francis, the company says, has “stepped away from the disapproving tone, the explicit moralizing typical of Popes and bishops.”

hey, hobbes says— don’t worry be happy. I am sorry but i fail to see the benefit when the enemies of the church are embracing him. Jesus preached to sinners, but they didn’t flock to him because they thought he was accepting of their lifestyle choices. Hey this Jesus guy is alright, he won’t JUDGE US. we can be gay as all get out. Where is the GO AND SIN NO MORE with this guy? to say that— to say they are sinning would be to JUDGE them, would it not?

was a day long program, presentations and then— you will like this: a group project. They were organized into groups of 10, and they were given a hypothetical— that their plane crashed in the middle of uninhabited canada and they could salvage 10 things to take with them to survive. They were to make their own individual list and then the group had to come to a consensus on the 10 things. he said there were people there taking notes on their interactions. He said he spoke up a moderate amount, more than most, but was not one of the BOSSY ones who did all the talking and were attempting to “look good.”

10 things in general or ten things that would happen to have been on the plane?

divorce and remarriage is also in the mix. Again, i suppose the clarity with which the Bible speaks of these things is of little import when the aim is to fit with the TIMES and contemporary mores. Divorce does not preclude communion, it's the remarriage and subsequent adulterous relationship that precludes it.
