Abraham Lincoln, Vampire Hunter - The South Shall Not Rise Again!

"President Lincoln's mother is killed by a supernatural creature, which fuels his passion to crush vampires and their slave-owning helpers."

Now you know why they are called red-necks!

Thank you Tim Burton.


Insulting and Dangerous – Crony “Faith-Based” Capitalism

There was an op-ed article in the Philadelphia Inquirer yesterday by the current bishop there stating how the HHS mandate for full women’s healthcare is somehow “insulting and dangerous” to Charles Chaput’s sacred tradition of faith to denigrate women and their body functions.

Many Catholics are confused and angry. They should be.”

The church is confused because the bishops do not listen to women. When women talk, the bishops hear nothing. This “hold the pickles, hold the lettuce” dietary rule for females only, regarding healthcare, is a bit not true deli and does not ring true to the rest of us in the American Equality pursuit of happiness thingy.

That somewhere along the timeline, George W. Bush started doling out government bailouts to the churches, who by the way no longer listen to their members, who by the way no longer sustain their membership numbers now that these churches have their crony business fronts for the poor in the form of “social service” programs – whatever that means.

Churches are no longer in the business of faith.  

Churches are simply in business.  And getting crony government bailouts in the process.

Surely in these hard economic times, many of the bloated contracts being handed out as Pork to these “faith-based” crony capitalism organizations could be done more cheaply and efficiently in the private secular sector of the economy.

That way, the meager healthcare services offered to the crony relatives of these crony handout “faith-based” programs to these churches will no longer have to be challenged by any HHS mandates.

No exceptions or religious privileges will have to be demanded by this new generation of screaming neo-con welfare queens – the bishops – once they go out of business and go back to “Faith”.

In other words, get your lips off the government teat and stop whining about being abused as you more than likely mismanage the government crony dole you are now getting on the tax payers' dime. 

Man up Religion! Get off the dole!

Faith!  Or get off the pot.
