    Why is it that both the Vatican and the Obama White House feel they can be so open and candid about their close collaboration? Is the Administration part of the Catholic Church or is the Church a mouthpiece for the Administration... or is Communism just a modern word for the Gospel, like Pope Francis says? Why do we keep hearing the same ugly messages wherever we look? In a bid to bolster the Obama administration's "moral" case for combating climate change, the head of the Environmental Protection Agency will meet senior Vatican officials Friday to enlist papal support for its...

    Russian President Vladimir Putin has a concrete plan of invading Europe, taking it under his total rule. The covert plot was exposed by Germany's well-known newspaper, the BILD, citing credible sources from the intelligence community. Mr Putin's grand plan was reportedly outlined in a supposedly classified document titled "Putin: the new leader of international conservatism." The blueprint was drafted by Moscow's Centre for Strategic Communications...
  • This Wingnut Conspiracy Theory Has a Point

    This Wingnut Conspiracy Theory Has a Point This might be a good rule of thumb for presidential policy: if the factual truth of what you are doing is so gob-smackingly ridiculous that it makes whacko conspiracy theories about it sound reasonable, it's probably bad policy. Digby: I suppose it was inevitable: What do you get when you combine the president's ability to secretly kill American citizens and the recent push to restrict gun access? One of the most bizarre anti-Obama conspiracy theories ever—and it takes a lot to win that prize. Various tea party activists, libertarian websites and other conspiracy-minded...

    No Meat on Mondays in Los Angeles By Susan Jones November 12, 2012 (CNSNews.com) - The Los Angeles City Council is urging all residents to observe "meatless Mondays" from now on. A resolution adopted on Oct. 24 reads: "Be it resolved, that the Council of the City of Los Angeles hereby declares all Mondays as 'Meatless Mondays' in support of comprehensive sustainability efforts as well as to further encourage residents to eat a more varied plant-based diet to protect their health and protect animals." Councilwoman Jan Perry, who introduced the resolution, also wants to ban new fast-food restaurants in South...

    Thousands of President Obama supporters turned out in in Madison, Wisc., for a rally following Wednesday night’s debate in Denver. The mood was somber, to say the least, as they waited to enter Bascom Mall at the University of Wisconsin Thursday afternoon. University of Wisconsin students and fellow Wisconsinites had mixed reviews on the president's performance. I talked to supporters of the president who had watched the debate, asking how they thought the president did. One after the other said they were left unimpressed and “not inspired,” seemingly depressed and lethargic in their continuing support of the president. More than...

    Religion is very good at telling you what to do and how to live. Your leisure time, if you so choose, can be completely absorbed in matters of ritual, practice and belief. Nobody stops you. I’m biased, but I believe the Jewish faith has a particular genius for this. There are morning prayers and evening prayers, complex dietary laws, 613 commandments direct from God covering every aspect of life, plus an ancient language to master, enormous books of commentary to study and debate. You do get to sleep, however. Don’t get me wrong; other faiths will keep you busy, too....

    Glenn Beck said today that he has spoken to military experts about the mystery contrail from a few weeks ago and he says it’s definitely not a plane, but rather a two stage missile. He just wants to know where it came from, and he has a theory. Beck postulates that this missile was possibly from a Chinese sub off the coast of California, perhaps as a show of force to the world, but even more so to President Obama.

    Majority of Republicans: Obama is a Muslim A new national Louis Harris poll finds that a majority of Republicans believe that President Obama is a Muslim, while 45 percent agree with the so-called "Birthers" that the president was "not born in the United States." The poll of 2,230 Americans, taken during last weekend's health care showdown in the House of Representatives, shows how successful Obama's opponents have been in demonizing the 44th president. Full results are expected tomorrow, but preliminary findings were released in The Daily Beast by John Avlon, whose book "Wingnuts" details the hyper-partisanship that has swept America...

The answer is obvious: those medical experts, whether they be TV medical personalities, policy wonks from universities or think tanks, HMO and long-term care executives, or so-called health care consumer advocates.

The Friday list of court orders that denies or grants hearings did not mention the lawsuit, which says Mr. Obama should be disqualified from the presidency because he purportedly acquired the same British citizenship that his father had when he was born.

    The march to protest Proposition 8 is continuing to wind its way downtown, and marchers got louder as they passed a cluster of three people holding "Yes on 8" signs. One of those holding the signs, David Cruz, said he wanted to remind marchers that the majority of voters have spoken by the passage of Prop. 8 in the Nov. 4 election. "They are not going to overturn the will of the majority,"said Cruz, 34, a College Area resident. Just then, marcher David Gonzales pushed toward Cruz, screaming that he was a disgrace. March volunteers kept them separated and Gonzales...

    If you had a chance to help prevent World War III, would you take the time? On Oct. 25, the Bush administration announced new unilateral sanctions against Iran. The administration named Iran's Revolutionary Guard, its Ministry of Defense, and its Armed Forces Logistics "entities of proliferation concern" regarding weapons of mass destruction. It also blamed the Revolutionary Guard's Quds Force for "providing material support to the Taliban and other terrorist organizations."--Bush was labeling "enemies" in a way that would allow an attack that circumvents the constitutional need to consult with Congress.

Yet as Washington girded for three days of demonstrations, President Bush promised yesterday to remain firm in his support of the war effort. In remarks delivered at the Pentagon, the president said Americans who want to withdraw troops from Iraq to escape violence have "good intentions, but their position is wrong."

    Special Report Touring the Al Gore Presidential Library and Museum By Leonard Albin Published 1/13/2005 12:08:26 AM Almost obscured by the climbing pink orchids and dense sub-tropical foliage in Boca Raton, Florida, a one-story, somber post-modern building of concrete and glass rises from the landscape. Though locals just refer to it affectionately as "that ugly damn place," the newly completed Al Gore Presidential Library and Museum is an important cultural site that should be part of everyone's Florida vacation -- even during the off-season. Just off I-95 in Palm Beach County, and convenient to the Pompano Beach Motel 6, this...

    Bubba Ho-Tep Based on the Bram Stoker Award nominee short story by cult author Joe R. Lansdale, Bubba Ho-tep tells the "true" story of what really did become of Elvis Presley.

Elvis teams up with Jack (Ossie Davis), a fellow nursing home resident who thinks that he is actually President John F. Kennedy, and the two valiant old codgers sally forth to battle an evil Egyptian entity...

    New York Times via Houston Chronicle ^ | April 11, 2004, 12:20AM | By WILLIAM SAFIRE
    Sometimes a new or offbeat word or phrase is used in common parlance for years before it sees print. Occasionally our computers' search engines, prowling the world of words for everything written or transcribed, can pick up an isolated usage. So it is with wing nut. I've heard this phrase spoken by political reporters for a couple of years but never saw it in print. Then in came an e-mail message from Mary E. Moliski, who describes herself as a "grandmother and word enthusiast" and sees this column in The Houston Chronicle: "Have you researched the word(s) wing nut? I...

    Looking at any society, it is easiest to see it as a bird that doesn't typically fly, something on the order of a rooster. It consists of a head that locates and allocates resources, and makes decisions based on the physical and defensive needs of the body - which are constantly communicated to the head. The body works in cooperation with the head to sustain and propel the organism - by providing food and locomotion.Finally there are the wings, left and right, farther out from the center of mass, which flap and move some air around, but do nothing else,...

    Vital Signs Looking for a new way to spread goodwill to all this holiday season? All we are saying is give peace your pants. By Sarah Phelan Getting naked leaves you vulnerable. Think nudists and thistles. Strippers and stalkers. Streakers running past, dangly parts swishing. Even professional nudists or strippers lay themselves open to criticism and ridicule, not to mention self-doubt, every time they toss their panties and Y-fronts to the wind. All of which gives you an inkling of how much courage and determination it took for 26 adults to take it all off for peace at Bonny...
