    “So she hardly had a real grievance.”
    Reminds one of at least half of the publicized cases regarding the “establishment” of religion in recent years, doesn’t it?

    LOL, yeah — “just” do that!

    Well, it would work . . . as long as he gave them buttons denoting a “gun free zone” in the vicinity of Bloomy.

    Exactly, sir.

    Nice

    And something REALLY new — a website that shows some adult discretion.

    Ouch

    Thanks, Sofwarebabe,
    It’s always warms the cockles of my heart to hear that a “brother of the bar” (or sister, perhaps?) has helped someone stand up for Truth, Justice and the (traditional) American Way.

    Oh, and more “comedy” (this from the hilarious New York Times)

    Parkinson’s ‘Clusters’ Getting a Closer Look
    By MARY DUENWALD
    Published: May 14, 2002

    Michael J. Fox’s celebrity can do more than raise money for Parkinson’s research. It may also help open an avenue of research that scientists have long wanted to explore.
    Mr. Fox, it turns out, was one of four people who worked on a production crew at a television studio in Vancouver, British Columbia, in the late 1970′s and developed Parkinson’s disease. Given that only 125 people worked on the crew in those years — including actors, directors, writers, production people and technicians — the number of cases seems extraordinary.
    It is possible that the cluster of cases arose purely from chance. But researchers are interested in studying them in hopes they will lead to clues to possible environmental factors or even viruses that may contribute to to the disease.
    Typically, Parkinson’s disease afflicts one in 300 people. In people as young as Michael J. Fox, 30 when the disease was diagnosed in 1991, the illness is much rarer. Fewer than 5 percent of Parkinson’s patients develop symptoms before age 50, said Dr. Caroline Tanner of the Parkinson’s Institute. The Vancouver cluster includes Mr. Fox and a woman who learned she had Parkinson’s at age 38.
    The four people worked together from 1976 to 1980, when it is possible that the disease began in all of them.

    Yup, Troll, that comical CDC: it’s always making jokes about tainted synthetic heroin.

    Pennsylvania has some very odd judges. I remember the case where the Muslim beat up some Atheist who was in a Halloween parade as a “zombie Muhammad” — the judge dismissed charges against the Muslim and scolded the Atheist.
    I am so SURE that a Christian can beat up an Atheist that bothers him. (NOT)

    I remember all the way back to when America had a decent President. Yup all the way back to 1988.

    Yup, that’s probably why.

    “The home was owned by the parents of Huntsman’s estranged husband, who oversaw it while their son was in prison. But the estranged husband returned to the residence on Saturday and began to clear out the house.”

    Wow: from prison to a house of horrors.

    Also, Rush Limbaugh’s deafness can be attributed to Vicodin abuse.

    Instead of wagging a finger at Congress to get taxpayer money for EMBRYONIC stem cell research, maybe Michael J. Fox could come clean about the cause of his Parkinsonism? That would certainly be the better public service.

    Best theory on Michael J. Fox’s Parkinsonism: tainted synthetic heroin used by him in Vancouver in the late 1970′s (4 others in his crew also showed the Parkinsonism at a young age).
    From a June 22, 1984 CDC News Release:
    Street-Drug Contaminant causing Parkinsonism
    The following information was submitted by the National Institute on Drug Abuse and the National Institute of Mental Health, and has been sent to state alcohol and drug abuse agencies and drug treatment programs.
    Recently, a street-drug contaminant has appeared that can cause parkinsonism in drug abusers. The compound N-methyl-4-phenyl-1, 2, 3, 6-tetrahydropyridine (MPTP) has been identified in underground laboratory preparations of a potent analog of meperidine (Demerol).
    Over the past 8 years, sporadic outbreaks of MPTP-induced parkinsonism have occurred among drug abusers in California, Maryland, and Vancouver, British Columbia.
    Two different synthetic methods were used by the underground chemists, and, in both instances, MPTP was present as a side product in the final drug preparation used or sold in conjunction with these outbreaks. The MPTP-containing powder, sometimes sold as a new “synthetic heroin,” was dissolved in water and administered intravenously or taken by the intranasal route. This contaminant has been documented to produce irreversible chronic parkinson symptoms in drug abusers. Two deaths in Vancouver, British Columbia, have been attributed to use of this drug.

    Smokey,
    You had me in agreement up to the last sentence. Most Blaze posters are tolerant — but they speak out when they see error (as they see it).

    Virginia & Mystery
    At a time like a funeral, people usually emotionally distraught and that can cause carelessness.

  • April 12, 2014 at 8:51pm

    Yup, and it is dehumanizing, too:
    “I pick on children that [not WHO] are disabled, and I am intolerant of those that [not WHO] are different from myself.”
    Humans are entitled to be referred to with pronouns that show that they are HUMAN.

    LOL — Rat even thinks that Obama’s delay in implementing the Obamacare employer mandate is within the law. He even including a condescending “go look at the law, it’s online” bit. I posted the MANDATORY language from the law in response to Rat — but Rat’s MO is to defend Obama with a sort of “These aren’t the Droids you’re looking for” comment.
