Happy Spring, Truthseekers! The neon green pollen is thicker than the veneer on Calista Gingrich around these parts. Try to wash it off and you create a river of yellow ooze that coats everything it touches with pasty slime that sticks in every crevice of your car door, patio furniture, gas grill, pets, and makes your garden gnomes look like aliens from the X-Files.
Like it or not, it’s sneezy season. Perhaps Rick Santorum swallowed a tad too many antihistamines while visiting the South, but his delusional campaign strategy seems to be to prevent Romney from reaching the magic1,144 delegate number before summer, forcing a brokered convention. He’s so confident he’s publicly aligned himself with one of the most self proclaimed bigoted Southern Preachers yet to be indicted, shamed, or imprisoned - Pastor Dennis Terry of the Greenwell Springs Baptist Church in Louisiana.
The right-reverend Terry held a campaign rally for Ricky in which he ordered all non-Christians, gays, lesbians, liberals, and women who have had an abortion to “get out” of America. Gee, you think any of those folk are possibly voters? The Telegraph quotes Santorum’s new supporter this way:
“Listen to me. If you don’t love America, and you don’t like the way we do things, I’ve got one thing to say, get out!,” he said. “We don’t worship Buddha, we don’t worship Mohammed, we don’t worship Allah. We worship God. We worship God’s son Jesus Christ.”
To a rapturous applause, Pastor Terry continued: “As long as they continue to kill little babies in our mother’s womb, somebody’s got to take a stand and say it’s not right. God be merciful to us as a nation. As long as sexual perversion is becoming normalised, somebody needs to stand up and say God forgive us, God have mercy upon us.”
Republican contender Mr Santorum was shown clapping approvingly in the background as the rightwing pastor delivered the ranting fire and brimstone address. He later received a personal blessing from the preacher who called on God’s will to be done in the upcoming election.
What did Rick say about JFK’s speech about the separation of church and state? That Kennedy’s words made him want to puke? But, apparently, this preacher who advocates some kind of ill-defined forced removal of those Americans who just don’t meet his standards because they’re gay, or just not Christian, or not Republican enough for him . . . that doesn’t make Rick sick? He vigorously applauds those beliefs?
So what say you, GOP voters, do you favor a President who said JFK made him puke while promising to “force out” certain Americans he doesn’t like? Sound like a rational decision?
Romney is inching ever closer to being named The Man Who Will Lose to Obama, so can we please stop giving Jesus of Pennsylvania so much attention? Maybe focus on something that actually has meaning?
Here’s something – did you know that stylish tissue box cover you bought from Bed Bath and Beyond can kill you? We don’t talk too much about the unseen consequences of our nuclear-fueled madness, but the fact is that once you create a radioactive isotope it’s just dammed near impossible to destroy it. That’s why our military LOVES to use depleted uranium to make bullets and various other weapons, because they kill really really good. It takes decades to really kill a population slowly from radiation (including our own exposed troops), but kill you it will. Birth defects, cancers, neurological disorders – thank depleted uranium.
Guess what? There’s so much of this radioactive junk in scrap metal all over the globe, some of it is bound to end up in commercial products that are then (you guessed it) imported into the US! Contaminated scrap metal is all over the place, and the latest find is in metal tissue boxes that forced a recall by Bed Bath and Beyond.
Bloomberg reports: “Going shopping? Don’t forget your wallet and credit card. Or Geiger counter. The discovery of radioactive tissue boxes at Bed, Bath & Beyond Inc. (BBBY)stores in January raised alarms among nuclear security officials and company executives over the growing global threat of contaminated scrap metal.
“The major risk we face in our industry is radiation,” said Paul de Bruin, radiation-safety chief for Jewometaal Stainless Processing BV, one of the world’s biggest stainless- steel scrap yards. “You can talk about security all you want, but I’ve found weapons-grade uranium in scrap. Where was the security?”
More than 120 shipments of contaminated goods including cutlery, buckles and work tools like hammers and screwdrivers were denied U.S. entry between 2003 and 2008 after customs and the Department of Homeland Security boosted radiation monitoring at borders. “
Talk about reaping what you sow, contaminated tissue boxes are nothing to sneeze at.
