A long time ago, when I was younger lad and less a man of the world, I had something happen that has allowed me to always have a good chuckle whenever I thought back to it. I was at a convention with a few buddies that I will say were of the “heftier” variety, and these gents could eat. As you can guess, their favorite routine was to hit an “All you can eat buffet” … Read more

No, seriously, I am not kidding, these bozos are making the claim that they have cured AIDS:
More than 36 million people worldwide have died from the AIDS virus across the globe, and another 35.3 million are currently living with the disease.
But they no longer have any reason to worry. The Egyptian Army has defeated the disease.
Or so claimed Egyptian Gen. Dr. Ibrahim Abdel-Atti, chief of the medical branch. “We
I did the unthinkable the other day. Doing some last minute Christmas shopping on line, an item that I wanted was only available in store. So yesterday I drove to my local Kohls, grabbed what I wanted and was going to be outa there in less than 5 minutes. While standing in the check out line, I noticed Duck Dynasty crap everywhere, toys in the center isle and books (both on the family and cooking) … Read more
Ah, Saudi Arabia:
A Saudi court jailed a Lebanese man for six years and sentenced him to 300 lashes after convicting him of encouraging a Saudi woman to convert to Christianity, Saudi dailies reported Sunday.
The same court sentenced a Saudi man convicted in the same case to two years in prison and 200 lashes for having helped the young woman flee the ultra-conservative, US-backed Sunni kingdom, local daily Al-Watan said.
There’s a new pope in town and, by the Church’s standard, he’s pretty revolutionary:
I find the Jesuit thing the most surprising. I never thought we would see a Jesuit Pope. He’s 76 so we’ll see how much of an influence he has. But my first impressions … Read more
Because as usual with the green communists in charge and their insane energy policies, gas prices are going up. I found some old receipts and was doing the math, and 37 days ago I filled up at $3.48 a gallon. Yesterday I paid $3.93 for each gallon. That’s a 45 cent jump in just 37 days, and there is no economic boon anywhere to justify increased demand for oil. So, WTF is going on? … Read more
A muslim who raped a 13-year-old girl he groomed on Facebook has been spared a prison sentence after a judge heard he went to an Islamic faith school where he was taught that women are worthless.
Adil Rashid, 18, claimed he was not aware
I guess the best way to get everyone to want to keep around a failing government run Ponzi scheme, is to make any other kind of investment vehicle unattractive. Qeueue the idea that 401Ks should be taxed pre use. Not to mention that once government can raid them through taxes, they also find ways to justify doing what Europeans are talking about or doing to their private investment retirement vehicles – nationalizing these investment … Read more
Does God Need To Be Worn On A Sleeve?
To segue from the Red Bandana post and the questions concerning overt spirituality I sometimes wonder what if any limitations we should as a nation place on piousness. The news from Benghazi and Cairo, although shocking, seem to me like a sad continuation of the insanity of Islam, more bloodshed from the religion of peace. Apostasy laws, blasphemy laws, a clear mandate from their holy book … Read more
