Al And Tipper Gore Divorce

Al Gore divorces Tipper

Below, just the text- for those poor souls who turn off images in their browsers:

Al Gore is said to be worth over $100 million from investing in the green and conservation technologies he preaches about to Americans.
But he flies in a fuel sucking private jet, owns several homes, one, a humongous mansion with a heated swimming pool and energy bills that are said to run 30 grand a year.
Well at least he takes recycling very seriously.
This month he’s recycling Tipper.

Give Washington A Pink Slip!

The Tea Party, Democrats vulnerable, What is the history of the Tea Party?, What is the Tea Party?

Washington is broken. Our politicians are owned by Big Business. They serve Big Business.

All but the most rarest and most outstandingly excellent elected officials should be voted out of office after a single term. It is the only way Americans have the slightest hope of reminding our them that we put them in office and we take them out of office. Big Business may pad their pockets and pay for their campaigns but we hire our elected officials and we fire them.

Whatever resulting instability there is will be good in the long run. That instability is the only chance we have of shaking our country out of the grip of the Goldman Sackers et al.

They’re called The Tea Party in honor of the 1773 rebellion against the country being run by and for the benefit of the British. Today, they’re fed up with the country being run by and for the benefit of Big Business. What will they throw overboard in 2010 instead of tea? Incumbents.

Lady Gaga Flips The Birdie At A Mets Game

Lady Gaga at the Mets game

Eff you and your double standard!!!!

Let me get this straight. Lady Gaga was thrown out of the Mets locker room for grabbing her boobs and sucking in whiskey, when – on any given day there’s a televised baseball game, the public is exposed, on national network television, to randy team members grabbing their crotches and spitting out chewed tobacco juice.

So… where was the problem?

You go girl!

Explaining The VAT Tax

What is the VAT tax

That VAT tax is a sneaky little thing! When your state charges you a sales tax you see it printed on your receipt. This is essentially  a federal sales tax – but one that does not appear on your receipt. This is why a VAT is known as a “politicians favorite tax. It’s also what’s known as a regressive tax, meaning it is more of a burden on the poor and middle class than on those that are more well heeled.
Below: just the text of the cartoon for those poor souls who turn images off in their browsers :
Obama promised he wouldn’t raise middle class taxes. But he says he’ll consider a VAT.
What’s a VAT?
Value Added Tax . Taxes are charged to manufacturers at each stage of production, “as value is added.” So people blame them for the rising prices instead of blaming politicians.
So, there’s no value added? Just a tax is added? Shouldn’t it be called a Tax Added Tax, not a Value Added Tax? A TAT not a VAT? That’s one hell of a typo.

Are You Ever Home Safe?

Well, I won’t deny that Al and Tipper Gore’s divorce surprised and upset me. They seemed to have such a great marriage.
Yesterday, I was talking to a girlfriend who said, “you and Rick have such a wonderful marriage.”
Suddenly I turned into my long-departed Grandmother from Russia:
“P-too, p-too, p-too!” Three quick spits in the eye of the devil! “Don’t give a kinahurra!” I shouted.

Sister Margaret McBride. You Got That Right Sister!

This cartoon is dedicated to the brave, wise and compassionate  Sister Margaret McBride. Personally, I think the church did her a favor by excommunicating her!

So, the Catholic Church would have preferred two deaths to one, orphaned four children and widowed one husband. Their position is indefensible.

Last November, a 27-year-old woman was admitted to St. Joseph’s Hospital and Medical Center in Phoenix. She was 11 weeks pregnant with her fifth child. She was gravely ill. According to a hospital document, she had “right heart failure,” and her doctors told her that if she continued with the pregnancy, her risk of mortality was “close to 100 percent.” ?The patient, who was too ill to be moved to the operating room much less another hospital, agreed to an abortion. But there was a complication: She was at a Catholic hospital.?But the hospital felt it could proceed because of an exception called Directive 47 in the U.S. Catholic Church’s ethical guidelines for health care providers that allows, in some circumstance, procedures that could kill the fetus to save the mother. Sister Margaret McBride (order: Sisters of Mercy), who was an administrator at the hospital as well as its liaison to the diocese, gave her approval. ?The woman survived. When Bishop Thomas J. Olmsted heard about the abortion, he declared that McBride was automatically excommunicated, the most serious penalty the church can levy.?This is certainly strange seeing as how in recent months and years no pedophile priests have been excommunicated. When priests have been caught their bishops have protected them, and it has taken years or decades to defrock them, if ever. In fact, those priests were simply sent to other parishes to abuse and destroy the lives of other unsuspecting children. Yet here we have a sister who was trying to save the life of a woman, and what happens to her? The bishop swoops down and declares her excommunicated before he even looks at all the facts of the case.
