Another Christian Right Madman Suggests Haiti Earthquake May Be God's Wrath
Posted by Tana Ganeva, AlterNet

Yet another great religious thinker has joined Pat Robertson in pondering the most important question about the tragedy in Haiti: whether or not the 7.0 earthquake that has killed thousands and devastated the country's infrastructure was the act of a vengeful God.

"Each time there is mass devastation due to acts of nature in areas of the world there is discussion as to whether or not these are acts of God’s judgment." writes Rev. Bill Shuler, pastor of Capital Life Church, on FoxNews.com. What makes God mad enough to level an entire nation? Whoring and boobs and drinking and witchcraft, of course. Continues Shuler:

When Katrina was flooded some people pointed to the decadent offerings of Mardi Gras and the French Quarters of New Orleans. When the tsunami hit southeast Asia people noted the severe persecution of people of faith in these nations. Haiti has been described, by some, as a place where the practice of witchcraft is prevalent....................

hey roger, dude,

YOU my dear are the ravings of a semi-sane madwoman hero of the week

thank you for making me smile

(note: even though i mentioned i would love to believe in hell so pat robertson and flush limburger would BURN FOR ETERNITY, i really do NOT wish ill will to either of them. all i wish is for BOTH of them, as well as certain others, SEE THE REAL LIGHT. i.e. grow souls and hearts)

A Letter to Rush Limbaugh

Roger Ebert: Rush ’should be horse-whipped’ for Haiti comments

"You should be horse-whipped for the insult you have paid to the highest office of our nation."

That's how Chicago Sun-Times film critic Roger Ebert began his letter to Rush Limbaugh, in which Ebert rakes the radio host over the coals for his controversial comments about the Haiti earthquake.

Ebert, better known for his stints as co-host of Siskel & Ebert and Ebert & Roeper than for his political diatribes, criticized Limbaugh for suggesting earlier this week that donations made to Haiti through the White House Web site would be stolen by the administration.

"Would you trust the money's gonna go to Haiti?" Limbaugh asked caller Justin.

"No," Justin replied............

dese goils is smokin'



(don't see any master card news YET though....)

As Wallets Open For Haiti, Credit Card Companies Take A Big Cut

Laura Bassett

Update at 3:13 PM: American Express announced today that processing fees for any donations made to the 65 charities listed on this website between January 12 and the end of February will be rebated back to those charities.

Update at 6:44 PM: Visa announced this evening that it, too, will not apply fees to charitable donations related to the crisis in Haiti through February.

As a massive human tragedy unfolds in Haiti, relief organizations are soliciting credit-card donations through their hotlines and websites. About 97 percent of these donations will actually make it to the designated organizations -- but the other 3 percent will be skimmed off by banks and credit card companies to cover their "transaction costs."...........

so we let acutal real terrorists we were warned about board planes flying into the us, with bombs strapped to their crotches. BUT

we're not smart enough to take an 8 year old boy off of the list?

Meet Mikey, 8: U.S. Has Him on Watch List

The Transportation Security Administration, under scrutiny after last month’s bombing attempt, has on its Web site a “mythbuster” that tries to reassure the public.

Myth: The No-Fly list includes an 8-year-old boy.

Buster: No 8-year-old is on a T.S.A. watch list.

“Meet Mikey Hicks,” said Najlah Feanny Hicks, introducing her 8-year-old son, a New Jersey Cub Scout and frequent traveler who has seldom boarded a plane without a hassle because he shares the name of a suspicious person. “It’s not a myth.”

Michael Winston Hicks’s mother initially sensed trouble when he was a baby and she could not get a seat for him on their flight to Florida at an airport kiosk; airline officials explained that his name “was on the list,” she recalled.

The first time he was patted down, at Newark Liberty International Airport, Mikey was 2. He cried............

Michael Hicks, 8, a Cub Scout in Clifton, N.J., has the same name as a suspicious person.

(i know flush is, i am guessing flat robertson is as well but i don't know for certain)

you both i am quite certain live COMFORTABLE life styles. have either of you listened to the news on the conditions in haiti? did both of you sleep ok afterwards?

you are both soul-less

on my way to work yesterday morning, npr (the bbc on npr) had a man on whose daughter died. he also had another daughter (i think she was 3 or 4) who had bones sticking through the skin on her legs and a giant open wound on her head. you could hear her crying in pain in the background as her father was being interviewed. she had not received any medical treatment AT ALL. the man was BEGGING for someone to do something ANYTHING.

that is what's going on in haiti.

i wonder what's going on in pat robertson's and rush limbaugh's homes?

Why Does Republican Senate Candidate Scott Brown Hate Rape Victims?
By Megan Carpentier, Air America.

This first appeared on Air America Radio

Republican candidate Scott Brown, running to fill Ted Kennedy's Senate seat, has a problem with more than just Martha Coakley. As Coakley's new ad points out, he also has a problem with rape victims.

From Sarah Palin denying funds to reimburse hospitals for performing forensic rape examinations to the 30 Senate Republicans who voted against allowing rape victims their day in court, the new Republican party tough-on-crime platform is, apparently, that rape victims ought to have rights, as long as they don't interfere with the rights of people in Wasilla who prefer lower taxes, businesses or super-devout (and, possibly, Deuteronomy-loving) Christians or .

Scott Brown falls into, at a minimum, the latter camp. In 2005, he sponsored legislation to allow doctors and nurses to turn away rape victims from Massachusetts emergency rooms if they objected to providing rape victims with emergency contraception. He said:............

BUT what i heard was this host implying the people of haiti who were left standing were going to not only start hurting other survivors but hurting the rescue workers. sure that's a possibility BUT i thought to myself, would the host be saying that shite if the earthquake happened in sweden? you bet your ass he wouldn't have. period. end of story

Prop 8 backer’s ‘child sex’ slur used against him in trial
By Daniel Tencer

Opponents of California's ban on gay marriage are using an anti-gay activist's claims against him in a landmark gay marriage trial taking place in San Francisco.

Lawyers working to have Proposition 8 -- California's ban on gay marriage -- overturned as unconstitutional played a videotape of William Tam, a leading proponent of Proposition 8, arguing that allowing gay marriage would lead to the legalization of sex with children.

Opponents of Prop 8, who launched the constitutional challenge, are using Tam's comments "to buttress the contention that Proposition 8 is unconstitutional because it was fueled by deep-seated animosity against gays," reports the Associated Press.

Earlier this week, as the trial got underway, Tam asked to have himself removed from the case, in which he was acting as a defendant. (Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger and state Attorney General Jerry Brown, who are named as the defendants in the lawsuit, declined to defend Prop 8, leaving the court to appoint Prop 8 backers as defendants.)...........

and my personal favorite defense of ALL time:
........Lawyers for Prop 8 supporters argued that homosexuals do not need to be protected from discrimination because the US has become more tolerant towards gays and other minorities.....

yeah right!!!

10 Good Reasons You Should Hate Oprah Winfrey

By Jennifer Simon, Nerve.com

This story was originally posted on Nerve.com.

I hate Oprah. There, I admitted it. What kind of curmudgeon hates the loveable, exuberant Oprah Winfrey? After all, there are plenty of valid reasons to like Oprah. Her triumph over her tragic childhood is inspiring. She tackles taboo topics. And her philanthropy is unrivaled by any other celebrity

Yet -- at the risk of offending her mob of followers -- there are also plenty of reasons to criticize, mistrust, disapprove of, and, dare I say, hate the most powerful woman in the world. Here are ten.

1) Her idea of happiness involves a lot of spending

Oprah supports her image as a modern enlightened everywoman with a lot of self-aware, self-help, positive-thinking rhetoric. But at the end of the day, her biggest contribution to the self-improvement landscape is her promotion of retail therapy -- the idea that you can spend your way to happiness and fulfillment. Her "Favorite Things" can turn a company like Carol’s Daughter into an overnight success, and so retailers beg for her approval. Her Oprah store in Chicago sells the items she endorses, to go along with paraphernalia bearing her logo and even clothing she has worn. Go for your dreams! Buy an "O" notebook to write them in! Somehow, with a straight face, she makes the contradictory claims that happiness is available for everyone and that $25 pairs of socks are the way to get it. She’s an awfully expensive person to emulate...............

Editor suggests group Liz Cheney fronts is bogus

By David Edwards and Daniel Tencer

The editor of a prominent progressive magazine has suggested that Liz Cheney's political pressure group may be a bogus front that gives news networks an excuse to put the younger Cheney on TV.

The only reason that Liz Cheney makes it on the news talk show rounds is that "she's Dick Cheney's daughter," and her political pressure group is little more than an excuse "so that there is some putative reason, other than being Dick Cheney's daughter, to put her on the TV," Nation Washington editor Chris Hayes told MSNBC's Rachel Maddow.

"There is no earthly reason that anyone should be listening to Liz Cheney on anything, other than the fact that she is the progeny of an alleged war criminal," Hayes told MSNBC's Rachel Maddow Monday night...................

All signs point to a new era of women in charge - socially, economically, politically

By Alex Beam
A specter is haunting America, and much of the industrialized world - the specter of female domination.

Women outnumber men here; you knew that. Women outnumber men in US colleges; you probably knew that, too. You might not have known that women receive almost 60 percent of university degrees in America and Europe combined. So who’s going to be running the show? You tell me.

More women have jobs in the US than men. The Bureau of Labor Statistics identifies job categories most likely to grow in the next decade. In 10 of the top 15 categories, women constitute two thirds of the workforce.

Witness the battle of the apothegms: A while back, economist Paul Samuelson (who died last month at 94) acknowledged females’ second-class socioeconomic status with the famous remark, “Women are men without money.’’ More recently, conservative agitator Christina Hoff Sommers has reversed the terms of trade. Boys, she has observed, “are tomorrow’s second sex.’’.........

Palin: McCain aides 'gossipy' and told lies about her

Sarah Palin made her debut as a Fox News contributor memorable tonight, telling veteran Fox host Bill O'Reilly that new attacks on her 2008 vice presidential bid are "a bunch of B.S."

Palin applied the epithet to criticisms by former John McCain campaign aides in a new book and a recent 60 Minutes interview; among other things, they said the former Alaska governor didn't know why North and South Korea are separate nations.

"Yes, that surprised me," Palin said. "I hadn't seen the 60 Minutes thing. I had been warned, you know, don't watch. It's a bunch of B.S. from [Steve] Schmidt and from some of those."

As for the Korea claim, she said: "That is a lie.".........

most of my friends are in the service industry. on sunday, i asked my friend 'a' (who was working at the time) if she used an order form or if she used her memory alone for orders.

what she said was, she CAN use her memory even for big orders IF they're almost all straight. when people start modifying or substituting, THEN she said she has to write things down.

and this article was in the wapo this morning (as i said, coincidence)

don't know if the author is using the word 'waiter' for both genders (as is sometimes done). i sure hope so. if not, women (once again) don't count BECAUSE THEY'RE NOT MENTIONED AT ALL

Richard Weber can still do the hardest part of his job with both hands behind his back, literally. But maybe not for long.

Weber, a waiter at Washington's iconic Palm restaurant, is a 20-year professional who prides himself on fast service, deferential courtesy and, most important, impeccable and unassisted memory. During a lunch rush last week, he smoothly kept track of the food and beverage demands of almost 20 diners, an ever-shifting matrix of steaks and salads, cocktails and Cokes, running credit cards for some, describing specials to others.

Cerberus Capital: Literally Blood-Sucking the Poor to Make Their Billions
By Mark Ames, AlterNet.

Wall Street vampires. Lately, a lot of Americans, including myself, have used the bloodsucking monsters as a metaphor to describe the Wall Street billionaires who rule us, and who are ruining us. Like so many awful stories of the past few years, it turns out that these Wall Street vampire-billionaires really exist, literally. Like all vampires, they live in remote castles, and they feed themselves by luring poor, desperate humans into their dens, hooking them into blood-pumping machines and sucking out their plasma for mind-boggling profits.

Cerberus Capital, one of Wall Street’s most notoriously ruthless leveraged-buyout firms (or “private equity firms” in PC-speak), recently made a $1.8 billion killing on its human plasma investment, a company called Talecris. Talecris was purchased for a mere $82.5 million just four years earlier, meaning Cerberus made 23 times its investment on human plasma..............

who are they you ask? i answer, C'MON NOW, YOU KNOW WHO THE HELL THEY ARE

....................Profiting from ruined American lives is nothing new to Cerberus. (The company takes its name from the legendary three-headed attack dog of Greek legend who guards the gates of Hell, making sure no condemned soul ever escapes. How appropriate.) Cerberus is the same shady fund that bought Chrysler and GMAC in 2007 and drove them into the ground, blamed everything on unions (even after firing 30,000 Chrysler employees), and dumped the companies onto American taxpayers—but only after lining up tens of billions in taxpayer-funded bailout funds. Cerberus is led by some of the most aggressive "free market" Republicans of our time. The chairman of Cerberus is former Treasury Secretary John Snow, who oversaw the destruction of America’s economy while serving under Bush from 2003 to 2006, bragging during his tenure, "We are the envy of the world."..............

the GIANT crystal cave

The Deadliest place on Earth? Surviving Cueva de los Cristales - The Giant Crystal Cave

ummary: Filming in the Giant Crystal Cave for 'How Earth Made Us'. One of the deadliest places on the planet.

It's 50oC and has a humidity of 100%, less than a hundred people have been inside and it's so deadly that even with respirators and suits of ice you can only survive for 20 minutes before your body starts to fail. It’s the nearest thing to visiting another planet – it’s going deep inside our own.

British Woman Arrested In Dubai For Illegal Sex After Reporting Rape

A British woman who claims she was raped in a Dubai hotel bathroom and went to report the incident to police has found herself and her fiance arrested for drinking alcohol and having premarital sex.

The 23-year-old had been celebrating her recent engagement to her fiance at the Dubai Marina's luxurious Address Hotel when she was followed into the bathroom by a waiter who allegedly proceeded to rape her while she was semi-conscious.

The next day, after discussing the incident with her fiance, they decided to go to the Dubai police. However, according to reports, the Dubai police were more interested in her sex life prior to the incident and her alcohol consumption. The couple were subsequently arrested. The waiter has argued that the sex was consensual but has still been charged with 'illegal sex'.............

i ask you, WTF is to evaluate?

not only did he HAVE a gun, HE PULLED A GUN on someone (i believe the other player also did as well, but i'm not 100% sure)

the almighty dollar here. can adidas make money with arenas or not? wtf. i swear to you. tiger woods has sex with people and he's dropped from advertising like a hot potato (i'm in NO way condoning what tiger woods did). arenas PULLS A DEADLY WEAPON OVER A GAMBLING DEBT (allegedly a debt) and an advertiser is CONSIDERING actions? sex vs death. look at where our society is. it's sickening.

Adidas "evaluating" relationship with Arenas
Michael Lee

Gilbert Arenas is already under investigation for possession of firearms in the District. NBA Commissioner David Stern suspended him indefinitely and the Washington Wizards organization appears to be distancing itself from him in all marketing and promotions. If Arenas weren't already dealing with enough, he now faces the watchful eye of his shoe company, Adidas, which released a statement on Friday that is putting the three-time all-star on notice.

"We are evaluating our relationship with Gilbert Arenas based on his recent conduct and subsequent suspension from the NBA," Adidas spokeswoman Lyn Famiglietti said in a statement.............

For Gilbert Arenas and Wizards franchise, latest incident sheds light on entitlement
By Mike Wise and Michael Lee
At Gilbert Arenas Sr.'s lowest, the three days in 1989 when he and his young son lived out of the back of his Mazda RX-7 in North Hollywood, Calif., he first began to notice the pattern. It didn't matter what his boy did -- smiled, pouted, acted silly -- people took a liking to him, wanted to help the child out. "I don't know who you are or where you're trying to get at, but here, here's some money," a woman said after knocking on their car window. "She said, 'Good luck to you and your son,' and gave me $25," Arenas Sr. said. "True story."...........
