You Can Tell We Are Christians By Our Love

December 30, 2011

Members of rival Christian orders have traded blows at the Church of the Nativity inBethlehem, with four people reported wounded in the fray.

Greek Orthodox and Armenian Apostolic priests were sweeping up at the church following the Christmas rites of the Western churches earlier in the week.

Reports say some Orthodox faithful encroached on the Armenian section, prompting pitched battles with brooms.

Intense rivalries at the jointly run church can set off vicious feuds.

The basilica, built over the grotto in theWest Banktown that is the reputed birthplace of Jesus Christ is shared by Roman Catholic, Greek Orthodox and Armenian religious authorities.

Pilgrimage season:

Palestinian police formed a human cordon to separate the battling dark-robed and bearded priests and deacons, said to number about 80, so that cleaning could continue.

Thousands of tourists visited the church for the Western Christmas celebrations this week, the first time municipal authorities reported a successful pilgrimage season since the outbreak of the Palestinian intifada in 2000.

The Eastern or Orthodox Christian Church celebrates Christmas in the first week of January.

The floors, walls and rafters of the Church of the Nativity are scrubbed and swept by Orthodox priests between the two festivals.

One report says the dispute started when the Greek Orthodox contingent wanted to place a ladder over the Armenian portion.

So I ask you all……CAN YOU FEEL THE LOVE YET?!?!

Republican Cluster Calamity On Steroids

December 21, 2011

In a display of the utmost stupidity, the Republican Party made the decision that “Middle Class Citizens” (let them eat cake) do not deserve any tax breaks from this Party.  This will be an loss of expendable income, much what is needed to make house payments, food on the table, heat in the homes, and the likes, to the amount of about $1,000 plus this next year.

This just shows how extremely “ELITE” and “Who They Truly Are Representing” the Republican Party has become to make sure their 1% funding contributors pay no taxes but “Bah Humbug & Go To Hell” towards the Middle Class.  Well this holiday season the Republican Party is hearing it from all sides on their latest “Screw The Middle Class Calamity,” including the influential “Wall Street Journal” editorial board who are no friends to Democrats by any means.

The “GOP Senate leader Mitch McConnell who famously said just a year ago that his main task in the 112th Congress was to make sure that President Obama would not be re-elected.

Well given how he and House Speaker John (what in the hell is he crying about now) Boehner have handled the payroll tax debate, I have to wonder if they might have ended up re-electing the president before the 2012 campaign even begins.

I will close by taking a line from Charles Dickenson’s, “Christmas Carol,” by saying, “God bless the Middle Class of theUnited Statesand may the Republican Leadership in Congress and Senate Rot In Hell…The Bastards.”

Christine O’Donnell, “I Am Not A Witch” Republican Senate Candidate, Endorses Mitt Romney For President In 2012

December 15, 2011

Christine “I am not a witch but I use to be one” O’Donnell in an effort to try to reclaim her fifteen minutes of Tea Party fame, (but shame for the Republicans of Delaware when in the Republican Senate Primary, voted to have her represent them) has announced that she is supporting Mitt Romney for the Republican Presidential Primary.

In what could appear as a “Grasp of Desperation,” Mitt Romney is hoping some of the failed Tea Party Republican Senate Candidate’s magic with Tea Partiers will rub off on him.  (He does understand that Christine O’Donnell lost big to the Democrat Chris Coons?!?! Could we say the key word here is FAILED!?!?  Should this in itself not give Mitt a clue?!?!?)

Appearing on Fox News’ Sean Hannity, O’Donnell went on to say, “Romney has “infrastructure and executive experience,” and has demonstrated “courage and conviction” in backing anti-establishment candidates.”  (What?!?!? Since When?)

Christine O’Donnell went on to say to CNN, that she admires Romney’s consistency. “That’s one of the things that I like about him — because he’s been consistent since he changed his mind.”  (Does this woman even listen to herself?!?!)

Romney, who has struggled to win the Ultra Conservative Tea Party’s support, welcomed O’Donnell’s thumbs up. “Christine has been a leader in the conservative movement for many years,” he said in a statement.  (Would someone please tell Mitt Romney that I live on a peninsula piece of land that we share with the small, little, state of Delaware and Christine O’Donnell’s run for the Senate Seat of Delaware on the Tea Party Republican ticket with her gaffe-filled campaign.…..WAS AN EMBARRASSMENT to all from Delaware except those Extreme Wing Nuts Ultra Conservative Tea Party Members.  She only got the Republican Primary vote because the Wing Nuts were the only ones showing up to vote in the Republican Primary.  The problem was during the General Election voting, even the more sane Republicans ran away screaming from the voting polls after casing their votes for the Democrat Chris Coons.)

If Mitt Romney thinks that this is his way to the Presidency of theUnited States…..well this just shows his “Poor Decision Skills!!!”

Donald Trump Withdraws As Republican Debate Moderator

December 13, 2011

Donald Trump has just announced that he won’t moderate a Republican debate after all. The problem, he said, “was that the GOP establishment is terrified that he himself might run for President as an independent.”

I am sure Donald Trump, “The Paris Hilton” of the Republican Party, came to this decision not because of all those running for the Republican Presidential Primary all but two have blatantly declared they would not show up for his little self-massaging gathering.  Nooooo this has nothing to do with it!!  It is because the Republican establishment is afraid that he may run for President like he has brought up much like the “Little Boy Who Cried Wolf” over and over again.  Yes The Donald Trump brings out this “Old Dog & Pony Show” every time his ratings dropped on his TV show.

The sad part is I have heard several of my Republican fellows proclaim that they could support and vote for Donald Trump for President.  Now on what qualities or grounds they would support him; I never bothered to ask because as far as I was concerned their announcement of stupidity had already been proclaimed.

Herman Cain Withdraws From The Republican Primary Race

December 3, 2011

Well it seems that another self-important, self-righteous, narcissistic, Ultra Conservative finds himself imploding from his own actions once again.  Whether Herman Cain announced he was still IN or OUT of the Republican Presidential nomination race, his campaign was over!

As of last week I had members of the non-thinking, ultra-conservative Republicans saying that it was proven that Herman Cain was being attacked by the “Democrats because all the women coming forward with sexual harassment charges are all from Chicago.”  When I asked what their source of information and documentation to this fact to back up their making such comments, their reply was, “Conservative Blogs” they read.  Enough said about this credible source.

I then took this chance to point out that Herman Cain just a couple weeks ago was blaming Mitt Romney’s campaign, then Rick Perry’s campaign, etc.  It was everybody’s fault except that maybe he really had a long history of sexual harassment toward women, especially if they were in financial trouble and needed employment, plus maybe with the latest woman from Georgia, the simple fact was maybe he was just screwing out on his wife whenever he had the chance.

I also asked what Karl Rove’s opinion of Herman Cain being the Republican candidate because in 1999 when John McCain beat out George W. Bush in a few Republican Presidential primaries.  Just before the South Carolina primary vote, Karl Rove released a family photo of John McCain’s where an adopted Afro-American daughter was in the photo.  The released verbiage complemented with the photo was that John McCain had an affair with a black woman and this black adopted daughter was the result of that affair.  Needless to say John McCain lost big in that South Carolina primary vote and his campaign never recovered after that.  Bottom line the ultra conservative person I was speaking with had no idea how Karl Rove felt about Herman Cain running for the Republican nomination for President.

Today my suggestion to Herman Cain is to go back home and try to repair his marriage, “Come Head to the Wind,” and change his infidelity ways.  Bottom line here, he was never Presidential material and I think that Karl Rove felt that same way too.
