Why yes, in fact. I did enjoy that.

Wow, this is perhaps the best Netflix recommendation ever:

Because you enjoyed:
Fahrenheit 9/11
An Inconvenient Truth
Bowling for Columbine

We think you'll enjoy:
The Inauguration of Barack Obama

Gee, y'think?

So it goes.

Ah heck, Philip Jose Farmer died. I wish him safe passage to Riverworld.


It's the end of the world as we know it

These things were foretold.

Gonna find out who's nazi or nice

Via the Drudge Retort:

A Pennsylvania couple has run into trouble getting a birthday cake for their three-year-old son. ShopRite's bakery refuses to make the cake inscribed with the child's name: Adolf Hitler Campbell. "ShopRite can't even make a cake for a 3-year-old," said mother Deborah Campbell. "That's sad."

This story actually made me tear up a little. I mean, who names their child Adolf Hitler? White supremacists, obviously, but man, that kid's in for a hard life. Either he'll grow up to own it or never live it down, and either way that's a tough road those parents have chosen for their son. At least their daughter JoyceLynn Aryan Nation Campbell could just change her middle name.

No cake for li'l Hitler.


Holy shazam. To wild applause from an unsuspecting audience, an actor accidentally slit his throat on stage in Vienna this weekend when the prop knife he was supposed to use was swapped with a real one. Now they're trying to figure out is this really, really bad prop preparation . . . or attempted murder most foul?


What. The. Fuck.

And it takes a FOX NEWS reporter, of all people, to ask him if he has no shame.

We are not afraid

I just made myself cry, kind of on purpose.
But this had to be said today, I think.

Where is your god now?

Wow. Just . . . wow. I heard it from slit, who heard it from another:

Faced with a plummeting economy, Christians decide the time has come to assemble on Wall Street and pray to a golden calf.

It's worth going through the several levels of talmudic commentary in the blog postings to the 700 Club editorial, which comes off as - to put it kindly - bugfuck crazy.

In early August in her prayer time Cindy heard the Lord say, “There will be no more business as usual.”

Little did she know the scope of what this meant on a worldwide scale. God is on the move. She and many others have taken this as a major point of intercession. She believes that just as there came a time when God judged the gods of Egypt, He is now judging the god of mammon. Nations are standing on the cusp of history that will determine their course for generations to come. God is judging the ideologies of nations. He is moving to put the fear of the Lord not only on His church; but upon the nations of the world.

For these and other reasons Cindy is calling for a Day of Prayer for the World’s Economies on Wednesday, October 29, 2008. They are calling for prayer for the stock markets, banks, and financial institutions of the world on the date the stock market crashed in 1929. They are meeting at the New York Stock Exchange, the Federal Reserve Bank, and its 12 principal branches around the US that day.

“We are going to intercede at the site of the statue of the bull on Wall Street to ask God to begin a shift from the bull and bear markets to what we feel will be the 'Lion’s Market,' or God’s control over the economic systems,” she said. “While we do not have the full revelation of all this will entail, we do know that without intercession, economies will crumble.”

When asked for comment, G-d had a different take on the subject:

And the LORD said unto Moses, Go, get thee down; for thy people, which thou broughtest out of the land of Egypt, have corrupted themselves:

They have turned aside quickly out of the way which I commanded them: they have made them a molten calf, and have worshipped it, and have sacrificed thereunto, and said, These be thy gods, O Israel, which have brought thee up out of the land of Egypt.

And the LORD said unto Moses, I have seen this people, and, behold, it is a stiffnecked people:

Now therefore let me alone, that my wrath may wax hot against them, and that I may consume them: and I will make of thee a great nation.

So hey, enjoy your G-d based economy with extra hot-waxed wrath. In any case, it's good to see some of the other old desert tribal gods besides YHWH getting some love after all this time.


This totally made me cry:

Amanda Jones, 109, the daughter of a man born into slavery, has lived a life long enough to touch three centuries. And after voting consistently as a Democrat for 70 years, she has voted early for the country's first black presidential nominee.

Dressed to kill

A plot by two white supremacist skinheads has allegedly been foiled before it began, in which they planned to go on a killing spree of 88 people, decapitating 14 of them, starting with shooting up a predominantly African-American school and ending with an assassination attempt on Barack Obama, driving toward him shooting at him from the car windows while dressed in white tuxedos and top hats.

What. The. Fuck.
