Rich Man’s Club, the Senate, Shoots down Buffet Rule Tax Idea

The Senate, a rich man’s club, rejected a new idea, the “Buffet Rule” whereby Millionaires would be forced to pay a fairer share of the taxation burden currently carried by working America.
Any new idea is rejected by the Senate because it is 1) New and 2) an Idea.
Long live the dumbed down Senate.  Duh!
The US Senate has blocked President Barack Obama's proposal to raise tax rate on those earning over one million dollars a year.
The wealth tax bill is largely considered a key element of Obama's re-election campaign and part of the broad plan for long-term deficit reduction.
Despite the Democrats' majority in the Senate, the lawmakers voted with a final tally of 51-45 Monday, falling short of nine votes to move the debate on the so-called "Buffet Rule" forward.
The "Buffett Rule", named in a reference to Warren Buffett, the billionaire investor who has repeatedly complained that the richest Americans generally pay a smaller share of their income in federal taxes than do middle-income workers, was intended to impose a minimum 30 percent tax rate on annual incomes beyond one million dollars.

Pentagon Secret Service Drugs and Whores Scandal in Colombia

No. I don't take coupons Gringo.

Who is protecting the POTUS ASSHOLES????????????????????

Another COVER UP – WHITEWASHING forthcoming in the MSM?

CARTAGENA, Colombia — Five U.S. military members have been ordered confined to quarters over possible involvement in inappropriate conduct at the same hotel here as the 11 Secret Service personnel sent home in an unfolding scandal involving local prostitutes….

The Secret Service confirmed Saturday night that 11 of its staffers assigned to the trip have been placed on administrative leave as the investigation proceeds into dealings between prostitutes and U.S. government personnel preparing for President Barack Obama’s arrival at the Summit of the Americas in Colombia.

“The nature of the allegations, coupled with a zero tolerance policy on personal misconduct, resulted in the Secret Service taking the decisive action to relieve these individuals of their assignment” and send them home, Secret Service Assistant Director Paul Morrissey said in the agency’s most detailed statement to date.

“The personnel involved were brought to Secret Service Headquarters in Washington, D.C., for interviews today. These interviews have been completed,” Morrissey added. He called the administrative leave “standard procedure [that] allows us the opportunity to conduct a full, thorough and fair investigation into the allegations.”…


No Apologies to Meryl Streep - The Iron Lady is a Shite Movie

I admit to having this love hate thing with Meryl Streep over the years.  I never paid much attention to her career even though the NYT film critics were constantly reporting her latest triumph over the years.  I have no sexual attraction, fantasy/sexual tension (?), towards the actress or the personalities she has portrayed over the years.
It took me literally thirty years to see Deer Hunter which was her first stellar part.  I think I formed a wrong opinion of her perhaps after seeing Kramer vs. Kramer in a theater with a girlfriend.  I perhaps equated her performance with the real life relationship that was shaky and ended after that movie quite literally.

I perhaps also had mistaken Ms. Streep for one of these chameleon actors like Keanu Reeves whose film performances seems to only reflect those he acts with rather than the performance itself.  I perhaps mistook Meryl’s performance as a chameleon thing along side Dustin Hoffman’s performance in Kramer vs. Kramer. 

In every movie he does, Dustin Hoffman plays Dustin Hoffman to this day. There is that annoying point in every Hoffman performance where he does that nasal thing in his voice, a metaphor for his maximum method “acting” effort thing and the rest of the performance returns to simply low point Dustin fare (mumbling). (There can only be one Brando Dustin.)

I did not see Sophie’s Choice when it came out.  It seemed a chick flick and there is a saturation point in any life regarding seeing another Holocaust related story.

My real and eternal admiration came in the movie Silkwood.  Saw it with some friends, had not heard of the movie ten minutes before I went in to see it.  Then on the way out, I saw a movie poster and saw that the admirable performance of the actress in that movie had been Meryl Streep.  My jaw dropped.  I saw a movie, liked the performance, and did not know who the actress was; perhaps I was a bit tipsy.  I then and there conceded that Meryl Streep was a very good actress but remained no great fan.

In her later years, I have seen wonderful performances of Streep in movies on TV and not in the movie houses. I will not go on about which flicks I liked of hers over the years or why.

I did last night pay to see her performance on Cable TV in her latest Oscar winning performance in the Iron Lady.  She deserved the Oscar for it as a seasoned character actress of the first class kind in the old Hollywood definitions of such.

I must say however that the script and the storyline of The Iron Lady is Shit.

I was expecting a sympathetic performance of the cold calculating ambitious British politician of Margaret Thatcher. I was sadly disappointed.
This is the sort of movie you do after a famous person is dead to invoke sympathy.  No doubt the movie financed with Brit cash is an attempt to make Margaret Thatcher palatable after all these years among the population. Propaganda flick Meryl?  And an attempt to quell the numbers, millions of Brits, who will literally be dancing in the streets on the day of her actual death?

Good performance.  Bad script.  Worthless subject matter.

I will say in retrospective that perhaps Dementia in Lady Thatcher’s case or Alzheimer’s in Ronald Reagan’s case is perhaps caused by people who never practiced thinking in their lifetime.  Never formed an original thought in their lives. Not a nice thing to say.

Don’t pay money to see this movie and you won’t need any Kleenex if you do. (Dry. Very dry. Two drops of vermouth worth.)

Is Mitt Romney Self-Insured for his Healthcare?

Self-Insured Mitt Romney?

With his refusal to participate in Medicare, where does Mitt Romney get his healthcare?  He, like all the rich self-insure themselves.  Some interesting questions here.

Are his children working or just living off the family fortune stolen at Bain Capital? That’s five sons and sixteen grandchildren in need of healthcare protection.  But the rich are not like the rest of us. 

Self insurance is little more than putting aside cash for emergencies and drawing down on it in time of need.  Statistically and like any insurance company, the odds and amounts are fairly predictable. In the case of a Romney, he goes to a hospital and pays and or negotiates what he is willing to pay and the hospital accepts or renegotiates the offer etc.  Cheaper than going through middle men health care providers sometimes. And take a tax loss when the medical bills get really high.  Just like business bookkeeping. Win-Win for the rich. 

I see in the below article that Mitt does not treat healthcare premiums on his income taxes as real healthcare as much as he treats it as a nuisance tax to claim residence in Massachusetts that under RomneyCare, health insurance is a mandated law.


Why all the secrecy about Mitt’s wealth and how it works for him and how if elected President, he can scrap Medicare because he is too rich to care about the rest of the citizens of a republic?

Kind of reminds me of 2008 when he was running and one journalist asked his sons if they were going to serve their country in the military.  Their response was that they were serving their country by working in Mitt’s campaign.  Geez.  Milk.  Cookies.  Mormons and the death of civility, reality and patriotism in America.

Ann Romney – not your typical stay at home Welfare Queen

Some Moms just don't need to work.

What is the difference between Ann Romney and a welfare queen?
A welfare queen can only afford one Cadillac.

Mitt Romney – not your typical job creating business man.

What is the difference between Mitt Romney and a real GOP Presidential candidate?

Good Question.

Fill the tank up with premium boy.
I am in a hurry.

Catholic League's Position on Male Body Waxing

Bill Donohue aka the Catholic League over at his local He-Man Women Hater's Irish Pub, his drinking buddies don't go in for body waxing or bikini waxes for guys.  Oh well.  Where does he stand or wax on this critical modern church matter?

Catholic League aka Bill Donohue now tweets on Twitter.

His eminence Dr. William A. Donohue speaks Canon Law for the Archbishop (?) in tweet:

Catholic League – NYT says Bikini wax for men is the new rave. Not with the Irish pub guys I hang out with. Bet I know who’s loving it.

LMAO – Does Bill have a heart shaped pube for you know who?  Business as usual at 452 Madison Ave.  Get out the umbrella!  Uncle Franny Spellman in heaven is pissing himself laughing on that one Donohue!

You're a funny guy Bill. Yes you are.

USCCB’s Ideal Thomas More, Heretic Burner, Book Burner, Patron Saint of "Religious Liberty"

Convicted of Corruption

Bishop Lori in conjunction with his top man, USCCB President Timothy Dolan, is issuing some sort of Catholic Fatwa against President Obama, the legally elected Chief Executive of the United States. 

Starting June 21 to July 4th they will be building bonfires and preaching hate toward Obama as part of some sort of Pagan Catholic religious festival dedicated to "religious liberty" fashioned in the image of “Saint” Thomas More who in his day burned Lutherans and Books for good King Henry VIII, Founder of the Church of England. 

After he got caught stealing from the treasury, Thomas More suddenly got religion, RC religion that is, against his lawful king and got his head chopped off for corruption in high office.  

One has to wonder if one day we will take examples of traitors and corrupt Church Officials, and re-enact in some hoped for future morality plays their criminal trials and convictions, exampled by corrupt traitor Church Ladies types presently with us like Lori and Dolan - a third rate USCCB Vaudeville Act?

Water Serpent by Anna & Fidel Archuleta


Ozzie Guillen Totally Correct on the Greatness of the Fidel Castro Myth

 J'ai vécu ("I survived") -- Tallyrand

Marlins manager Ozzie Guillen is suffering from his candid first amendment rights in praise of Fidel Castro.

The Castro myth and respect in the whole Spanish speaking world from Spain to Argentina is greater than the power of the bitchiness of the privileged Cuban American entitled immigrant community in Miami Florida.

Guillen was stupid to praise Castro in that holier than thou my shit does not stink Cuban Miami ghetto enclave.

I am hoping Romney picks Rubio as VP as the token Hispanic. Only after Romney loses will the GOP or the MSM realize how diverse Hispanics in American are and how many of the exclusive communities can’t stand each other or are even capable of setting aside their individual prejudices temporarily for the sake of some stupid Gringo election.

In reality, Castro is a criminal long term typical tin pot dictator.

His fame and love in the Spanish speaking world is born of his defiance and survival over the wishes of the American global empire for sixty years.

In his recent audience with the pope Benedict the German, Castro admitted to being a monster for jailing tens of thousands of his fellow countrymen over the decades.

Benedict laughed and told Castro – “that’s nothing” compared to fucking up the lives of tens of thousands of catholic children every year in the worldwide RCC.

Benedict the German’s Legacy - Ungehorsam - Disobedience

He looks tired.

He went to Mexico and the Mexican bishops did not present any clergy abuse victims for him to apologize to.

No clergy abuse in Mexico?  Not according to the Judenrat bishops there.

Well he looks tired and he will die soon and go to his eternal reward.  His judgment for acts here on this earth is between himself and his God.

"The evil that men do lives after them,
The good is oft interred with their bones."

At the end of an almost thirty year period where he and Karol Wojtyla openly conspired against the faithful, forged an unholy alliance to steal God's good grace from the faithful, and appoint “yes men”, Judenrat boot licking bishops like in Mexico and worldwide, he complains about dissent in the ranks.

“Ungehorsam” “Disobedience” to the Papal King. To the Magisterium – the Papal Mafia Crime Empire.

Disobedience to Evil is no sin. It is a Virtue.

Jesus fought against priests. Priests plotted to kill Jesus. The Priests are still with us.  And now some are disobedient to his imperial majesty.
In the old days, disobedience got you shot in the Wehrmacht.

Where is Mitt Romney’s Birth Certificate? - and his Claim to Mexican Citizenship

Everybody is too nice and PC about Mitt Romney and his grandfather and half a dozen grandmothers, one of which gave birth to his father, George Romney in 1907 in Mexico in a Mormon Polygamy Colony south of the border. If Mitt’s father was born in Mexico, the former Michigan governor and Secretary of HUD under Nixon, had claim to Mexican Citizenship.

Where was Mitt Romney born? Where is his birth certificate? Why is he hiding it and the names of his perhaps many stepmoms?

No, you read that right. You might think birthers are crazy conspiracy theorists, but you can't say they're inconsistent. The fringe group of politicians and concerned voters who have long dogged President Obama for "proof" that he is a natural born citizen are now targeting Mitt Romney. They demand that the California Secretary of State produce evidence that Mitt is eligible to run for president. One birther explains that Romney's citizenship is up for debate because his dad was born in Mexico. Thats right, Mitt Romney's father was born in the Mexican colony that Mitt's great-grandfather founded after fleeing the United States so he could stay married to Romney's four great-grandmothers. Let's all just let that sink in for a moment.

Mormons like Romney like sending secret contributions to the NOM, National Organization of Marriage, to put down gay marriage as bizarre.

That from a Mormon Polygamist family member is quite bizarre of and by itself?

How many wives does Romney keep in all those 15 mansions he owns nationwide?

If Ann Romney becomes first lady, what do we call all of Mitt's other wives?


Titanic and the Power of the Secular God

There is this western obsession about the biggest boat ever built at the time, the fastest boat, and the hand of God could not sink this boat thing, that lingers now to a centennial mark on April 15.

I, as a youth, was fascinated with the Titanic myth of Icarus and its failing and sinking going back fifty years. There was a big layout in the Philadelphia Sunday Inquirer edition that spread and reiterated all the myths about the great British super liner on the fiftieth anniversary of its sinking.

I saw that Clifton Webb, Barbara Stanwyck movie Titanic http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0046435/ on TV that weekend I think to boost the propaganda myth of man’s invincibility and technology. That flick also pointed out the form of an iceberg’s passive natural power to crash the hearts of man and his invincible mythology. I also eventually saw the B&W British film A Night to Remember http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0051994/.  

So when we as a family were walking out of a movie and into a movie lobby in Arizona in 1997 and seeing the posters of the new flick Titanic to be released at Christmas 1997, I yawned and said aloud “Wow, another Titanic film. What a bomb that will be.” Of course I was wrong on that one. Wasn’t I? http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0120338/

I understood the myth. Another generation had yet to introduce itself to the myth and its hidden lessons.

The incredible failure of common sense to wrap itself around technology’s 1912 myth was one of the reasons for the failure.  The engineers and designers of Titanic thought it would float if damaged because of untested technological theories about what watertight compartments could or could not do in a worst case scenario. In such a case, no need for so many obsolete lifeboats to spoil the traveler’s view. 

Obviously, dumb icebergs have their own agendas regarding man and his technologies of the day. Of course we are talking 1912 technology. Think about how man and his myth and his modern day secular worship of technology are in 2012.  Holy Shit!

The younger generation, the tech generation, the Internet generation, re-embraced the Titanic myth once again in 1997.

So why the fascination?  I think it is the valuable lesson that all our knowledge and all our current technologies do not foresee the unforeseeable.  Man is limited even in his madness about how great he is among the creation of the universe, and in blind governance of the things of this planet.

“Man is the measure of all things.”  When man sets himself up in the secular role of an all-powerful and perfect God role on the earth, it is important that major failures be reported, told and retold again in myth to remind us all of how limited in scope and purpose he is in the ultimate scheme of things in the Universe.

Cardinal Dolan's Bigotry Treats Gays Like Lepers - (Jesus was wrong in loving everyone?)

It's okay to touch her Holy Father - she's not Gay.


The head of New York's Roman Catholic archdiocese faces a challenge to his stance on gay rights: the resignation of a church official who says he's "had enough" of the cardinal's attitude.

Joseph Amodeo told The Associated Press on Saturday that he quit the junior board of Catholic Charities after Cardinal Timothy Dolan failed to respond to a "call for help" for homeless youths who are not heterosexual.

The conflict began when Carl Siciliano of the Ali Forney Center for homeless gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender young people wrote Dolan, saying his "loud and strident voice against the acceptance of LGBT people" creates "a climate where parents turn on their own children."

Dolan responded that he's following church teachings. His response prompted Amodeo to quit.

Dolan heads the nation's largest archdiocese.

Cedric Tornay - Vatican’s Lee Harvey Oswald? - Swiss Guards Murder Coverup?

Cedric Tornay - Murderer or Hierarchy Scapegoat?

Warning: This a not a conspiracy theory but it is, as I favor things in studying history, a timeline thing that may or may shed some light on a chain of events on that timeline, events that may or may not be as they officially seem. 

Yet there are whispers that even timid Justin Rigali may have gotten into a bit of hot water in Rome. He was working as secretary of the Congregation for Bishops, which is the number two position in the second-most important congregation in the Vatican; that congregation recommends candidates for bishop. 

The secretary almost always serves at least five years. But Rigali was moved out after four years and one month—that’s when he was sent to St. Louis, to oversee the archdiocese there. One theory has it that Rigali may have gotten too aggressive in pushing his choices for bishops—that he might have, in other words, crossed someone in the Vatican with enough power to undermine his career. 

There are also repeated, though unsubstantiated, rumors—ones cited by several Vatican or Rigali observers I spoke to—that there might have been another reason he left Rome. While at the Vatican, Rigali became chaplain for the Swiss Guards, the ex-military guys, young and unmarried, who provide security there. Uncharacteristic of a man dedicated to carefully building a Vatican career, Rigali befriended them, drank with them, and was involved with them to an extent that appeared unseemly to many. “Princes of the Church do not drink with the hired help,” one longtime Vatican observer says. (The archdiocese also said it will not dignify questions about Rigali and the Swiss Guards with a response.)

In 1999, in frail health and on his way home from Mexico, Pope John Paul II would make an unprecedented stop in St. Louis to see his long-time Vatican worker bee. It seemed to be a clear message: You are still one of us.

The cardinal, now 76, appears to want to get back to Rome—where his gray presence is suited for behind-the-scenes work. “He runs off to Rome every two weeks,” says a local priest who worked in the archdiocese’s office and got to know Rigali when both of them were at the Vatican two decades ago. “His work there is more important to him than here—it’s a terrible thing for the parishioners and clergy.” Many observers believe that the Vatican will soon find someone new to run the Philadelphia archdiocese. 

Clinton, JPII, Rigali, St. Louis January 1999

St. Louis' Archbishop Justin Rigali announced the visit (John Paul II) to the St. Louis media on Thursday, April 22, 1998.

Cedric Tornay, Gladys Meza (Estermann), Alois Estermann

A murder-suicide (May 4,1998) involving the Swiss Guard that rocked the Vatican in a mystery worthy of a Dan Brown thriller is back in the spotlight after Pope Benedict XVI was asked to intervene and reopen the case.

Swiss Guard Cedric Tornay, 23, shot dead the famous unit's commanding officer Alois Estermann, 43, and his wife Gladys Meza before turning the gun on himself - allegedly in a fit of rage after being overlooked for promotion.

Within hours of the triple deaths in 1998 - the first violent deaths on Vatican soil in decades - officials closed the case saying it was a simple case of corporal Tornay having gone mad after being given medication for a brain tumour.

Mr Brossellett added that he had found 'inconsistencies' in the official autopsy report provided by the Vatican after they had a second one carried out in Lausanne when the body was returned to his native Switzerland.

…He said:'Our autopsy showed that Cedric Tornay was turned at the time of the shot but the Vatican one said he was on his knees and facing forward. So their reconstruction is wrong.'

Mr Brossellett also said that they had discovered the night of the murders a friend of Estermann's had called his apartment and had heard 'bangs and shouting' and that he thought four people were in the house at the time of the killings.

Mrs Baudat said:'As far as I am concerned the original investigation is full of lies and contradictions and was carried out at such a speed so as to hide the real truth. It was a murder carried out to get Estermann out of the way and then helpfully blame it on a dead madman.'

(No doubt when Cardinal Law dropped the ball in Boston in 2002 and the bigger picture of institutional abuse and cover up became apparent nationwide, John Paul II was eager to appoint a loyal soldier, Rigali, who may have owed JPII a Vatican favor or two or three (?), to keep a lid on the Krol/Bevilacqua abuse cover-ups in Philly.  While John Paul II owed little to Bevilacqua, he owed his very papacy directly to John Cardinal Krol of Philadelphia.)

Dimitris Christoulas, the 77-year-old retired pharmacist who shot himself on Syntagma Square in Athens because, as he said in the note he left behind, he would rather die than scavenge in rubbish bins for his food, is not the first and will most certainly not be the last Greek to take his own life during this crisis.

To the People of God in Philadelphia 2012 - Child Abuse Trials

St. Boniface, Norris Square, Philadelphia

To the People of God in Philadelphia,

7. "And to the angel of the People of God in Philadelphia write:

'These things says He who is holy, He who is true, "He who has the key of David, He who opens and no one shuts, and shuts and no one opens":

8 "I know your works.

See, I have set before you an open door, and no one can shut it; for you have a little strength, have kept My word, and have not denied My name.

9 Indeed I will make those of the skyscraper of Shame (222), who say they are True and are not, but lie -

indeed I will make them come and worship before your feet, and to know that I have loved you.

10 Because you have kept My command to persevere, I also will keep you from the hour of trial which shall come upon the whole world, to test those who dwell on the earth.

11 Behold, I am coming quickly!

Hold fast what you have, that no one may take your crown.

12 He who overcomes, I will make him a pillar in the temple of My God, and he shall go out no more.

And I will write on him the name of My God and the name of the city of My God, the New Jerusalem, which comes down out of heaven from My God. And I will write on him My new name.

13 He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to all the Peoples of God."

The Benedict XVI defense in the Monsignor Lynn Philly kiddie rape trail – I was only following orders

Child Rape Experts and Crime Bosses "Big Tony" Bevilacqua of Philly  and "Big Bernie" Law of Boston

The long, typed letter fantasizes about a seventh-grader's body, and asks if the boy wants to try various sex acts. 
"You are soooo cute. I have been thinking about you for a long time. ... You're the cutest in our grade," the author wrote in a rare G-rated line. 
But the anonymous author was not a classmate at the boy's Catholic school in northeast Philadelphia. It was a parish priest. One with a cache of gay pornography and sadomasochistic videos in the rectory. 
Files show the letter-writing priest was sent to a church-run treatment center for priests, where staff concluded he did not have "a pathological interest in children or adults." Doctors racked the letter up to a single fantasy. And they believed him when he said he hadn't sent it — or acted out with children. 
"Cardinal Bevilacqua is granting him a health leave, and that should be the announcement to the (St. Anselm's) parish," reads a December 1995 memo, found in secret personnel files at the Archdiocese of Philadelphia. 
The memo, along with the priest's letter, aired in court this week in a landmark criminal trial in Philadelphia. Accused is Monsignor William Lynn, the first U.S. church official charged with child endangerment for allegedly leaving predator-priests in ministry, and conspiring with others to cover up the festering problem. 
Prosecutors call the archdiocese of 1.5 million Catholics "an unindicted co-conspirator."

Like all mindless soldiers in a larger organization, Benedict XVI used to shoot Allied pilots out of the sky for his Leader; Monsignor Lynn was only following orders from religious crime boss Cardinal “Big Tony” Bevilacqua when he shuffled kiddie rapists/priests around the cesspool archdiocese of Philadelphia.

“I was only following orders.” Yeah Right.

Tell that to your victims Joe and Bill.
