Good times, glad they are still progressing on destroying these.  Once they are done, it should should save us some money and provide some peace of mind.


A clip from CARITAS IN VERITATE (by the Pope)

Charity received and given is what gives rise to the Church's social teaching, which is caritas in veritate in re sociali: the proclamation of the truth of Christ's love in society. This doctrine is a service to charity, but its locus is truth. Truth preserves and expresses charity's power to liberate in the ever-changing events of history. It is at the same time the truth of faith and of reason, both in the distinction and also in the convergence of those two cognitive fields. Development, social well-being, the search for a satisfactory solution to the grave socio-economic problems besetting humanity, all need this truth. What they need even more is that this truth should be loved and demonstrated. Without truth, without trust and love for what is true, there is no social conscience and responsibility, and social action ends up serving private interests and the logic of power, resulting in social fragmentation, especially in a globalized society at difficult times like the present.

I take all this to mean "Catholics" should not bitch and just pay a fair share of taxes.

Which Senators Still Won't Tax The Rich?

In a vote to help fund teachers and first responders (shocker) all the Republicans voted "NO";

So did a few Democrats;
Joe LIEberman, is not running for re-election, so why would he want to tax rich people?  He is one..

Ben Nelson from Nebraska, just wants the economy to fail, and must not like having a black President.

Mark Pryor of Arkansas must have had a bad lunch, or maybe he doesn't like a black President either?

Tim Abbott Is Smart..

What would QVS do witout Tim and his peeps? They are propping up our economy.

Gaddafi Was Alive, For A Bit

Japan Worried About US DOD Cuts

Well, considering we have Guam 1000 Miles SE (with a possible 4 Airfields), why keep proping up Japan??

Let's get the bulk of the Military out of Japan, they will be fine without the US.  We can still make port visits...don't worry.

Robin Hood Tax

A 1% tax on financial transactions? Sure, works for me. Just keep it away from Congress and pay it directly to lower the National Debt.

And if my 401K takes a 1% hit, no big deal, Wall Street does that on any given day anyway.

They Predicted Gaddafi's Death In The 1980's

Wait, Aid For Libya?

No. Just give them the $38 Billion in frozen assets (and that is in the US alone). I think they will be "OK".  It works out to $5k per man woman and child.  Talk about a stimulus?

Occupy Tacoma

Occupy Everything Reached Tokyo!

Not so huge, but it's still cool to see it reach around the globe, literally.

Mantis Eats Own Eggs?

I filmed this yesterday, creepy.

The Tokyo "Hot Spot" Was Not

It was just old radium, which was used to make glow-in-the-dark paint up till 1960-ish.

The paint is deadly if ingested, in a large enough quantity.

Which Senators Won't Tax The Rich?

Well, all of the Republicans said no (as usual), but a couple Democrats did too. Senator Ben Nelson of Nebraska thinks rich people are taxed enough!
Ben's home, he's rich.

Jon Tester of Montana was the other one.  He has a big farm out in Big Sandy, Montana.  Jon is also rich.
Here's the vote record; 

If you notice Harry Reid also votes yes, it's because he has to do that so he can call up the bill again.

The House Votes On Trade Deals

The amazing thing that happened in the Congressional House, is that 49 Democrats voted FOR outsourcing our American jobs (the ones in italics at the link above).  Even more amazing is, one..just one, Republican voted no!  This guy Walter Jones (with a bad hair piece) voted no.  I want to meet this guy..I want to shake his hand and say sorry about calling his hair piece "bad".  Let's have a beer.

I am glad to say my own Rep, Donna Edwards voted no.

How Are Catholics Liking The "New Mass"?

Just curious, I know they have been having classes on this. Pretty silly suff..

Do baptist's have to put up with shit? You just make up your own stuff from house to house, right?

Foreclosures On The Rise By 14%,0,3365040.story

Pretty amazing, the banks have nothing to do with these homes onve vacated.  Many are being demolished.  You still have to pay the proprty tax...

Is the end game to just have a bunch of empty realestate?  Mostly in horrible locations (economically speaking).  Why not re-finance??? 

It's why the big banks will fail again.  And this time, there will be no bail out.  There would be a head on revolt in the country.  The kind with blood and dead people.

The Trade Deals Are Done

So I am sure you will want to know who in Congress to blame, when unemployment hits 25%. So I will break it down;

Senate Yeas (alphabetical):
Akaka (D-HI), Alexander (R-TN), Ayotte (R-NH), Barrasso (R-WY), Baucus (D-MT), Begich (D-AK), Bennet (D-CO), Bingaman (D-NM), Blunt (R-MO), Boozman (R-AR), Boxer (D-CA), Brown (R-MA), Burr (R-NC), Cantwell (D-WA), Carper (D-DE), Chambliss (R-GA), Coats (R-IN), Cochran (R-MS), Collins (R-ME), Conrad (D-ND), Coons (D-DE), Corker (R-TN), Cornyn (R-TX), Crapo (R-ID), DeMint (R-SC), Durbin (D-IL), Enzi (R-WY), Feinstein (D-CA), Franken (D-MN), Gillibrand (D-NY), Graham (R-SC), Grassley (R-IA), Hatch (R-UT), Heller (R-NV), Hoeven (R-ND), Hutchison (R-TX), Inhofe (R-OK), Inouye (D-HI), Isakson (R-GA), Johanns (R-NE), Johnson (D-SD), Johnson (R-WI), Kerry (D-MA), Kirk (R-IL), Klobuchar (D-MN), Kohl (D-WI), Kyl (R-AZ), Landrieu (D-LA), Lautenberg (D-NJ), Lee (R-UT), Levin (D-MI), Lieberman (ID-CT), Lugar (R-IN), McCain (R-AZ), McCaskill (D-MO), McConnell (R-KY), Menendez (D-NJ), Mikulski (D-MD), Moran (R-KS), Murkowski (R-AK), Murray (D-WA), Nelson (D-FL), Nelson (D-NE), Paul (R-KY), Portman (R-OH), Pryor (D-AR), Risch (R-ID), Roberts (R-KS), Rubio (R-FL), Schumer (D-NY), Sessions (R-AL), Shaheen (D-NH), Shelby (R-AL), Stabenow (D-MI), Thune (R-SD), Toomey (R-PA), Udall (D-CO), Udall (D-NM), Vitter (R-LA), Warner (D-VA), Webb (D-VA), Wicker (R-MS) and Wyden (D-OR).
To be honest, these are the votes for the South Korean trade deal, not the same for Columbia and Panama. Some Senators voted for one or two of these, but not all three. That is so they can say "I did not support the trade deals" an not be called liars, technically.
More voted for South Korea than any other, and the big problem with this one is, China will use it as an avenue to send products to Korea (re-brand it) and sell in America duty free. These business people really don't get the fact that the rich have sucked all the buying power out of America's middle class and poor. They are wasting their time.

I will post the House votes in a bit....

Japan Mulls Executions

Good for you, glad to see another nation have the guts to take on the moral argument. If you are "pro life" then be pro-all life. If not, kill every criminal and fetus possible. It will draw down unemployment numbers in the long run. 

Rena Shipwreck

So this ship has been stranded on a reef, near New Zealand, for weeks. It's leaking oil and some container stacks have now collapsed. Why didn't anyone think of having another ship move into the area and move the containers by helicopter, thus relieving stress on the hull. Thus, possibly enabling the ship to be recovered?

No one has balls anymore. And it's the spill that keeps on giving..

Royal Succession

The fact that countries still consider this stuff at all is pretty amazing.  I like giving women equal rights, but at some point, do the people have to ask if they even need "royals" at all??

Rand Paul Blocks Pipeline Inspection Legislation

Hey Rand, they have these things called "amendments" that any Senator can add to a Bill under consideration. The fact that you won't do that, means just one thing; You are a fucking liar and just don't want added regulation on a business that lobbies/supports you.  You would rather Americans endure more of the above (innocent deaths), so your Corporate buddies can make a few bucks.
What a mediocre Senator...I hope you-all in Kentucky are happy. :)

Lunch With Paul Ryan

I have to go on the record here; This only happens if you speak your mind.  If you bow down to Ryan, his Police will not take you away.  Good for America!

Occupy America

I keep hearing the "news" outlets talk/bitch about the movement, like it has no clear purpose. No "head", no clear message, no definition.
Well guys, when you are part of the 99% of the population, you will have no single demand. No single end game, or single purpose.
It's everyone else, all the people not living in mansions. The ones not in the Penthouse. The ones without a Yacht.  We are the other 99%.  The rest of America. The regular folks.

We will be heard. We will be back, again and again. Better hope it doesn't get ugly. This IS America, so don't you push it. Please.  Thx

The Anti-Counterfeit Agreement

This got no play on US news channels.  Maybe because the "agreement" didn't include China?  You know, China is the biggest counterfeiting country on the planet..

Dead Americans

All this bitching over a drone strike that killed "American" terrorists today. What the hell? They were terrorists (Anwar Awlaki) bent on attacking America again. I don't care if they were born here or in China/Russia or Pakistan. They were terrorists. If I had been there in Yemen, with a pistol, in range.. I would have no problem killing both of the dogs.,0,3942598.story
