Hi Meldinoor,

I didn't find it , so I've no idea which paper it came from. I got it via Ed Brayton's blog, Dispatches From the Culture Wars, which is worth a look and can be found here; http://scienceblogs.com/dispatches/

Re: Why Conservatives Are So Jumpy Recently...
Hi Paul,

I'm sorry, my dear. I must have missed something.

Would you explain, please?

I dunno, it's mystifying. I was hoping one of you guys would help explain it to me. Here's another one that's been confusing me...

Some people find the strangest things amusing...

Going on in the same vein as my last humor contribution, here is another fundy contribution to separation of chuch and sanity.

As a Christian, this kind of stuff makes me want to cry.

This also seems another example of creationist foot-shooting.

ABE: And that's just the promo video. The full video contains such nuggets as:

Student says:

quote:
When presented with such evidence that the world has come up with, it scares me how convincing it is!

Another Student says:

quote:
I was not prepared to hear all the different views presented

I mean what do people want out of college! Professors to pat them on the back and reaffirm their beliefs???!

And of course:

Narrator:

quote:
In 2008, a documentary film crew followed the journey of one college freshman and captured actual footage of a re-enactment of his first day of classes

Followed by a series of poorly acted professors raging against Christians.
It's no wonder fundies believe the education system is anti-christian when nonsense like this is proliferated

Am I the only one that's been hoping health care reform would pass just so Rush Limbaugh would leave the country?

If passing health care will get this turd out of the country, I could care less if Obama signs the bill while wearing a black beret and a Hitler 'stache.

"Republicans turned off by size of Obama's package" - the rest of the story

As previously mentioned, this is Granny Magda's source.

In the comments of that cite, an online version of the full article is listed:

http://archive.easternecho.com/...turned-size-obamas-package

I'll copy/paste the whole thing (which may well not be proper):

quote:
Republicans turned off by size of Obama's package
Opinions
By Tom Brandt / Opinions Editor
Friday, January 30, 2009

Republicans are not sparing the rod when it comes to beating up on President Obama’s economic stimulus package, but it’s clear they are unable to raise their membership to withstand the newly found vigor of his congressional muscle.

President Obama’s massive $819 billion spending-and-tax-cut package was rammed through the U.S. House of Representatives on Wednesday without the support of a single Republican member. Even with 11 Democratic representatives opposing the bill, the 244-to-188 count reflected the bulging Democratic majority that has now swollen the House.

Ever since the Republican fantasy of endless majorities began collapsing beneath a disgusting load of GOP lies and incompetence in 2006, Republicans have quickly come to realize they can look probably forward to many legislative defeats like Wednesday’s ahead.

For six long years, America gave the Republicans all the rope they wanted – and sure enough – now they have hung themselves.

While the lopsided tally of Wednesday’s House vote surely must have been hard on GOP members, President Obama was not about to stick it to Republicans, as he graciously invited Congressional leaders of both parties to the White House that evening for cocktails.

“He said he wanted action, bold and swift,” pointed out Speaker Nancy Pelosi, Democrat of California, according to the New York Times, as debate began Wednesday morning on Obama’s gigantic package, “and that is exactly what we we’re doing today.”

As debate over the dimensions of Obama’s package snaked through the House, the blame game over who bore responsibility for America’s current economic pickle grew predictably partisan.

According to the Times account, Rep. Virginia Foxx, Republican of North Carolina, raised the familiar argument that GOP tax cuts in 2001 had stimulated years of job growth. The firmness of the U.S. economy had only flagged, Rep. Foxx complained, once Democrats fastened their grip on Congress in 2006.

These comments obviously pricked the ears of Democratic Rep. Steny Hoyer of Maryland, who noodled his GOP opponents by pointing out it was their member’s dysfunction that savaged America with “the economics that got us into this mess.”

Although conservative commentators like Fox News’s Glenn Beck have hammered the president’s stimulus package as somehow “socialistic,” arguing in his January 26th column that America should “call a spade a spade,” most observers view the Obama plan as much more likely to stimulate America’s flaccid free-market system than Bush and Paulson’s bailouts for the big banks – which shafted the country’s real working stiffs.

The meat of the Obama package consists of billions for the states, and programs to help families overcome the hardships brought on by six years of Republicans jimmying with government regulation and jacking up corporate welfare.

In the end, witnessing the Obama stimulus package being massaged by Congress is much like watching any government sausage being made; it’s not for the faint of heart. But this package is probably the best tool available to stimulate America’s soft economy – and in that, we can all take some satisfaction.

The Obama package may not be the best piece of stimulative legislation ever to enter the Oval Office, but it represents the best job harried congressional members are likely to come up with. And it certainly beats any package Bush ever raised.

I had thought it was an allusion to all of those "increase your size" spam messages showing up in email boxes.

Hi Moose,

Ah. Well, looks like they've used up their innuendo quota for the year.

A magenta box with "gallery,hd,org" in it. I can see why that would be confusing.

My dear Lady, I am at a loss to explain as well. Sometimes we must just accept that there are mysteries in this Universe.

Love the avatar, by the way.

Patton Oswalt is funny


"Some people think God is an outsized, light-skinned male with a long white beard, sitting on a throne somewhere up there in the sky, busily tallying the fall of every sparrow. Others—for example Baruch Spinoza and Albert Einstein—considered God to be essentially the sum total of the physical laws which describe the universe. I do not know of any compelling evidence for anthropomorphic patriarchs controlling human destiny from some hidden celestial vantage point, but it would be madness to deny the existence of physical laws."-Carl Sagan

"Show me where Christ said "Love thy fellow man, except for the gay ones." Gay people, too, are made in my God's image. I would never worship a homophobic God." -Desmond Tutu
