Pope Is A Pimp For Pedophiles

I wish this headline was inflammatory. Unfortunately it is just the sad truth.

The Catholic church has one again been rocked by scandal and this time it goes all the way to the top. It has been shown that the Pope refused to defrock a priest that molested over 200 deaf boys..... Let that sink in for a second. It is reported that complaints against the offending priest, Lawrence Murphy, were ignored and overridden and even haltied by Ratzinger

As if that weren't bad enough in 1979, Peter Hullerman, a priest in Essen Germany was sent to Munich after being accused of assaulting an 11-year-old boy. The Pope, Then-Cardinal Ratzinger, gave the okay for the priest to stay in a rectory while he received therapy where the priest committed subsequent acts of child molestation. In 1986 Hullerman was convicted of his crimes yet it has only recently come to light that Hullerman was still practicing as a priest in Germany until march 15th of this year when he was quietly let go.

In addition in 2010 while Ratzinger was in charge of the “Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith” which was in charge of the investigation of child rape Catholic priest he issued a confidential letter to every bishop in which he reminded them of the extreme gravity of "reporting of the rape and torture" of children. In other words Ratzinger deemed it was a crime to report the criminal act of child rape and torture! If his order was defied the priest who reported a crime would be subject to the penalty of excommunication.

If this was just your average man on the street he would be in jail doing time for covering up the crime of child rape. Instead the Pope and his legal team have attacked his accusers in a full court press in an effort to make this thing go away. He has called it "rumor" and referred to the media accounts as "slurs" against the Pope.

It is plain as day that the only recourse for the Pope is to resign. If he were anyone else he would be unsurreptitiously thrown into jail. This has to stop and if the only way to do it is to cut off the head of the beast so be it.

Health Care Back To House.... UGH!

Senate Republicans succeeded early this morning in finding two problems with the health care bill.

One is related to Pell Grants and the other makes small technical corrections.

Soooooooo... Senate parliamentarian Alan Frumin has informed Democratic leaders that the health care bill must return to the House due to a violation of the Byrd Rule.

The only silver lining is that Democrats might give including the public option one more shot...

Obama Signs Executive Order On Abortion

In front of a small group of anti-abortion lawmakers in the Oval Office, President Barack Obama signed an executive order pledging that the administration would not allow federal funds to pay for elective abortions covered by private insurance.

Now for all you nim-rods threatening to kill Bart Stupak (D - MI), or anyone else who signed the Health Care Reform bill, for being a baby killer open your dim eyes and read this article... and yes, I do understand that I may be taking it for granted that you are in fact able to read.

Heath Care Reform Turns Racist & Violent

Click to read headlines

House members offered more security after vandalism attacks, death threats

Reps. Louise Slaughter and Bart Stupak receive death threats

Clyburn: Racist Faxes, Image Of Noose Were Sent To Office

Sniper threat to children after US health reform vote

Vandalism at Gifford's office after vote

Wichita Dems get a brick through their window

Vandalism reported at offices of three Democrats

Alabama-based blog calls for "window war" against Democrats

In addition the FBI began a preliminary investigation into fuel lines cut at the Virginia home of Perriello’s brother, whose address was posted online. A tea party participant published on a right-leaning blog what he thought was Rep. Perriello’s home address and urged disgruntled voters to “drop by” for a “good face-to-face chat.”

This, of course, all comes after Health Care Reform protesters outside the halls of Congress shouted the "n" word at John Lewis of Georgia (a leader of the civil rights movement), shouting the "f" word at Barney Frank (an openly gay congressman) and spat on Missouri Rep. Emanuel Cleaver... I fear this will not end well. I hope I am wrong.

Poll Reveals What Republicans Really Bealieve About President Obama

On the heels of health care, a new Harris poll reveals Republican attitudes about how Republicans really feel about President Obama...

67 percent believe that Obama is a socialist

57 percent believe he is a Muslim

45 percent of Republicans believe that Obama was "Not born in the United States"

38 percent of Republicans say that Obama is "doing many of the things that Hitler did"

And my personal favorite....

24 percent say "he may be the Antichrist."

Another interesting point is that the poll shows education is a barrier to extremism. Respondents without a college education are vastly more likely to believe such claims, while Americans with college degrees or better are less easily duped.

This Is Why I Love Joe Biden...

Droppin' the "F" bomb when the mikes are hot... You just can't beat that! Watch the magic!
I loves me some Joey B. !!!!

Emanuel Cleaver????? Right wingers keeping it classy... Read the entire New York Magazine article HERE and HERE at the New York Times.

Hate-Filled Or Ignorant?

How do you get people to vote against their own self interest? Is their some kind of a hate meter that tips the scales. In other words, do teabaggers say to themselves "Boy I'd really like Health Care Reform but I hate our black socialist, communist, Nazi President from Kenya so much that I'm willing to screw myself and protest against my best interests".

These Tea Party enthusiasts have nothing to lose and everything to gain if heath care is reformed. They will not be paying extra taxes, they will not be losing any health care options. They only stand to gain in if the bill passes. No more pre-existing conditions, no more rate hikes, no more being turned down when they become ill. Do they understand that they are saying in effect that they are for all those things when they protest the bill? Do they understand that they are in actuality sticking up for the insurance companies right to screw them over?

There can only be two conclusions drawn from the actions of the people... One they hate President Obama and the Democrats so much they are willing to shoot themselves in the foot just to spite them or... Two they are incredibly stupid and haven't any clue of the harm they are inflicting on themselves and those around them. Take your pick... Hate-filled or ignorant. Neither of which is very appealing.

Tea Partiers Mock And Scorn Apparent Parkinson's Victim

Do you want to know exactly what heath care reform supporters are up against. Did you ever wonder what in the hearts and minds of the teabaggers. Wonder no more. This video makes it crystal clear what they are all about... and its vile, ignorant and embarrassing.

Click to watch...
How cruel...How ignorant... How telling. We should all be ashamed that this kind if behavior exists in our county. I am so embarrassed by these people my head feels like it's going to explode.

Faith Healers Get 16 Months for Son's Death

Enough!

I understand the need for religious freedom and I would never deny anyone the right to worship any god he or she ascribed to.... But this is beyond the pale. When your "faith" leads directly to the death of anyone let alone a family member you have crossed the line. We are no longer living in the dark ages blindly believing in "magical thinking" to help us through our ignorance of what makes the world around us tick!

The couple in question, Jeffrey and Marci Beagley of Oregon, allowed their to son die of complications from a congenital urinary tract blockage which traps toxic waste in his body. The condition normally is easily treated with antibiotics and yet they decided to go with the old Christian standby of anointing with oil and the laying of hands. Their son, of course, died an agonizing death.

What make this case even more mind blowing is just months earlier, the Beagleys' granddaughter, 15-month-old Ava Worthington, died from pneumonia and a blood infection that also could have been treated.

The Beagleys as well as the murderers from their church (Followers of Christ Church) should never be allowed around children ever again.

I think the Judge Steven Maurer summed it up perfectly in sentencing when he said: "The fact is, too many children have died unnecessarily - a graveyard full," "This has to stop."

I couldn't agree more!

Just A Little Somthing To Think About...

Eric Massa And Glenn Beck... Crazy Meets Crazier!

Last night, disgraced ex-congressman, Eric Massa went on The Glen Beck Show. I believe Glen thought he had a huge scoop thinking Massa, being disgruntled about his resignation, would spill the beans confirming Mr. Beck's insane conspiracy theories about the Democrats... At the very least Glen would surely get some dirt on Rahm Emanuel. Instead what he got was a whole lotta' crazy! Everything from mea culpas to groping male staffers to birthday tickle fights to tousling drunk wedding guests hair... But no scoop was to be had and Beck was loosing it! The look on Beck's face in these clips is freaking priceless!!!!! ENJOY...

Part 1

Finally The Truth Comes Out!

Classic!

HOO-RAY!!!!

Limbaugh Vows to Leave US Over Health Care
Radio talk show host Rush Limbaugh has thrown down the gauntlet. If the U.S. Congress passes health care reform, Limbaugh will leave the country in protest.

The only problem is Limbaugh has never been known to be a man of his word... Fingers crossed though.

FYI - Limbaugh claims he will leave the USA for Costa Rica... I wonder if he is aware that their health care system is nationalized. Idiot!

Have you noticed the look on Republicans faces lately. It is somewhat akin to a child who thought they might have gotten away with a bit of mischief only to find that they have been caught with their pants down. It's priceless.

The reason for their crestfallen demeanour would be the press conference held by President Obama today in which he essentially said health care reform will pass whether or not the Republicans are on board or not. In other words the reform bill will pass through the process of reconciliation or to put is in layman's terms... Majority rules. Since the Democrats have the majority Health Care reform will pass. With it's passage Republicans will once again be on the wrong side of history just like they were with Social Security which they screamed bloody murder about. They are petrified and rightfully so. After Democratic president Roosevelt signed Social Security into law in 1935, and the people of the United States realized what a wonderful program it was, they then awoke to the fact that the Republicans had been lying to them. Their scare tactics that it was the first step in turning America into a Socialist/Communist country was all a lie made up for political gain and gamesmanship... Sound familiar? The Republicans fell into disfavor for over a decade after that political fiasco and they know it will happen again.

For proof one needs look no further than the passage of medicare. Republicans in 1964 railed against Medicare once again claiming that it would lead the country into... You guessed it... Socialism and or Communism. Once again, when the bill passed under Democratic President Lyndon Baines Johnson and Republicans fell into disfavor once again. You'd think they'd learn.

President Obama put it best today when he said to Republicans "If you don't like the bill vote against it". Nothing would make Democrats and liberals happier than to have Republicans go on the record as being against health care reform.

As a post script I'll make a prediction... within a year of this reform bill passing the people that now fear this health care makeover will be crying for the dreaded public option (which is presently not in the bill) and will have done away with their tea bagging ways.

Health care reform is coming folks and I couldn't be happier.
