i have no idea whos going to read this today. alot of people dont work today and i assume that , like me, most people are just fucking off on company time with these blogs. i wont be posting anymore this week (unless something really great happens) so i know you'll miss me. heres a couple of headlines that i found amusing.....
down in central america (colombia actually) a statue of christ appears to be bleeding. of course its being shipped to the church in bogota where the catholic church will investigate. we are all aware of just how scientific the catholic church can be. this is just a case of uneducated people flocking to something they dont understand........ and never will. how ridiculous. if jesus wants to help those people bleed some cash for them. how about getting rid of the corrupt governments that hold these people down. in reality the catholic church likes these people held down. poor and stupid is a recipe for blind faith.
finally our government is going to court with jose padilla. he's the brooklyn born convert to islam that has been held without any rights since 2002 under the patriot act. he was arrested because he was supposedly going to explode a dirty bomb in america. suprisingly the new court papers now dont mention that at all. a whole new set of charges have come up. i know some right wing readers will nail me on this post but the reality is is that this is some bullshit. i'm not saying he isnt guilty...he might be for all i know. i just dont think you should be locked up with no access to a lawyer, your family.....without your unalienable rights that are given to you as a citizen of this country. now you can say that hes a terrorist....but that hasnt been proven. this could happen to you or me if someone powerful decides they dont like us. nothing had to be proven to lock him up for 3 years. our rights are disappearing and we arent even noticing.
headlines here in the burg are that the catholic churches new papers they put out did not include gays. is this news? was anyone suprised? what did catholics think the church was going to do? roll out a red carpet. actually the church is missing a huge money grab here. who has more donation money than a dink couple (dink = double income , no kids). oh and a priest out west who was accused of molesting two young girls jump to his death from a mountain in a national park. i only hope he was pushed. someone did that to my kids and i'd throw him off of something high. my guess is that the priest section of hell is filling up too fast and he wanted to get a good place with a view.
ok kids, enjoy your turkey, pop the top button on your pants and chow down
