    My prayers go out to Joe and Laurie. What the he11 was in the mind of that dump truck driver?

    When I was 12 years old, I was sitting in a bathtub, and I had an epiphany. I felt I had a calling to the priesthood. When I voiced my experience to family, they threatened to disown me. My 12-year-old self didn’t want to live without family approval.

    When I was 14, I went to confession. In the confessional, I freely admitted the frequency of my masturbation. The priest on the other side of the screen went ballistic. He was frothing at the mouth. He shouted at the top of his lungs: “What are you? An animal?!”

    All the other people waiting in line for confession heard his outburst. The priest gave me a penance that would take me 3 years to complete.

    I exited the confessional. The line of people waiting to confess looked at me as if I were the Devil incarnate.

    That was when I left the Catholic Church, and formed my own relationship with Jesus.

    It seems ludicrous to me that a celibate priest could be an effective marriage counselor. What would he know about the intimate give and take of a relationship?

    Protestant ministers have been getting married for centuries. Mandatory celibacy is an unnatural and ill-conceived burden placed upon a man, whose body and psycho-sexual orientation predisposes him to experience sexual desire and the desire to procreate. If a priest has been given sexual plumbing by God, it is absurd that he is not expected to use it. It’s like saying, “Oh, yeah, you have a digestive system. Don’t use it. Starve to death.” Why should priests have to struggle daily with the natural inclinations given to them by God?

    By the way, glad to see THE-MONK back on the board.

    What about us night-shifters? I usually eat 2 meals a day. Breakfast or lunch at about 3:45 pm, and dinner or lunch at 8 pm. Yeah, sometimes I have a snack at 3 am. We creatures of the night are always out of synch with the day-shifters.

    Did I read this article correctly? Castillo received a 30% disability rating for his twisted ankle in military prep school, which allowed him to compete in contracts with war vets who had their limbs blown off? And then he plays football at college?

    A State Senator in PA believes that Philly is defying the US Constitution with its tedious processing and long delays. He is proposing that Philly residents be able to obtain their License to Carry Firearms from neighboring counties.

    In Philly, PA, the PD issues a License to Carry Firearms. As I understand it, the concealed-carry restriction applies only to “cities of the first class,” of which Philly is the only place in PA as such designated. Friends tell me that open-carry is pretty much the norm in upstate PA rural areas.

    @YOURSENSELESS. Were you born an *****, or did you need to take classes to reach your current level of uselessness?

    Let’s face it: hypertension, heart disease, and related problems are fundamentally genetic. My dad died of a cerebral hemmorhage at the age of 47. My mom died of a myocardial infarction at the age of 83.

    At one time, my diet consisted of about 99% processed foods. Had a talk with my doc. Seems like I liked a little food with my salt. Had to make some changes because of hypertension.

    Haven’t touched a salt shaker in about 4 years. The first effect of reducing my sodium intake was that I lost 10 lbs. Doc said it was water loss. I still eat my favorite foods–just in smaller portions, and occasionally.

    As Phil Berquist said in the movie CITY SLICKERS (at Curly’s funeral): “The man ate bacon at every meal… you… you can’t do that!”

    Kaitlin IS beautiful! The bullying had everything to do with some bottom-feeder sports fans projecting their own ugliness in team rivalry upon this sweet gal. Glad that Kaitlin stood up to these losers. Wonder how many of these low-lifes will make the “Darwin Awards” for 2013?

    I was the target of a bully in my first year of Catholic high school. All male class. I took verbal abuse and spitball attacks for most of the year from someone who, apparently had a problem with my Polish descent. One day the bully made a mistake. He took a swing at me. I blocked his punch and kicked his butt. Many of my classmates came up to me later and shook my hand, saying: “It’s about time you stood up for yourself.” The priest/instructor walked into the classroom to see the bully with a black eye and swollen, bloody lip. I had no injuries. Adrenaline is a wondrous thing. I pounded the bully until he was totally incapacitated. Finished up my first year of high school with the “peace that passeth understanding.”

    So, Morgan gets his azz handed to him one more time by Jones (see Jesse Ventura, Ted Nugent, and Joshua Boston)–and, then, he brings on Dershowitz to engage in a mutual admiration society, passive-aggressive attacks on Alex Jones. It’s all a set-up. Jones was expecting a three-way debate with both Morgan and Dershowitz. That would’ve been an awesome encounter. Jones would’ve killed two birds with one stone.

    Either Piers made the decision to eliminate Jones from the third segment, or Dershowitz didn’t have the ****** to face Jones directly.

    What’s next? A ban on salami-automatics? You know, I’m a Philly boy.

  • December 28, 2012 at 8:06pm

    It was obviously a sub-machine bun.

    Diane Feinstein just introduced a Senate bill to ban assault hoagies.

    Piers is just pissed that the Continental Army whooped his fellow countrymen. He wants Americans to be disarmed, so Britain can come back over and take back the Colonies.

    These massacres always take place in “gun-free zones.” What do we have to do to convince Shumer, Boxer, and Feinstein that criminals don’t obey signs?

  • December 15, 2012 at 6:12pm

    Increasing gun control? This crime was committed in a State that has one of the most draconian set of gun control laws. This crime was committed in a gun-free-zone. Why is it that Chicago, DC, and NYC–which have the most restrictive gun-control laws–have the highest gun-crime rates, and that the States that support gun ownership and concealed carry have the lowest gun-crime rates?

    Criminals are not going to care about gun control. They will get guns to perpetrate their crimes. And no gun-control laws will stymie them. You’re only chipping away at the God-given right of law-abiding citizens to defend themselves. I think you need to move beyond sophomoric thinking.
