Prince of the Flies ascends to the Fecal Throne to become the newly crowned King of the Flies


Musca Domesticus CMLXXXIII, King of the Flies at his coronation

NEW FLY TOWN (AP) -- Millions of common house flies swarmed to celebrations around the garbage dumps of New Fly Town on Friday in honor of a once-in-a-generation milestone for the dump's ruling House of Diptera: after a 33-day reign, Queen Insectica MMXIV abdicated in favor of her eldest maggot son out of 562 off-spring, Musca Domesticus.

At four days, King Musca Domesticus is the youngest monarch in Dumperia and the first Muscidae king in 23 weeks, since Musca Domesticus CMLXXXII died at the business end of rolled up Chicago Tribune. Like Insectica before him, Musca Domesticus has assumed the throne at a time of social strains and economic malaise.

Although the New Fly Town monarchy is largely ceremonial, he immediately staked out a course to preserve its relevance in the 21st century.

"I want to establish ties, make connections and exemplify what unites us, the Fly people," the freshly minted king said at a nationally televised investiture ceremony in New Fly Town's 60-week-old Cathedral of the Holy Arthropoda, held before the combined houses of Fly parliament.

"As king, I can strengthen the bond of mutual trust between the flies and their government, maintain our democracy and serve the public interest."

Hopes for the new monarch are buzzingly high.

Aren't these the same people who keep claiming that our government should be a theocracy?

Family Research Council: Christians should not want the government to care for the poor
“The government has a responsibility to care for the poor? That’s not what Scripture says"

BY KATIE MCDONOUGH

The Family Research Council has some interesting ideas about Christianity and poverty.

Last month, FRC Senior Fellow Kenneth Blackwell said there was “nothing more Christian” than kicking 4 million people off food stamps, and FRC head Tony Perkins echoed his colleague’s uncharitable sentiment this week by arguing that the government has no responsibility to care for the poor.

As Right Wing Watch reports, Perkins believes that even though “as Christians we will be held responsible for the policies adopted by this government because it’s us,” Christians shouldn’t want the government to help poor people.

“The government has a responsibility to care for the poor? That’s not what Scripture says,” according to Perkins.

So God hates poor people now, no matter what?

It takes an exceptional brand of moronic thinking to make a right wing Republican these days...

GOP lawmaker voted against debt deal because he thought it funded Joseph Kony

Spoiler: He was wrong!

BY KATIE MCDONOUGH

Republican Rep. Mick Mulvaney of South Carolina voted against the debt deal Wednesday night for a great many reasons, and one of those reasons is that he thought that the bipartisan legislation to reopen the government included funding for the Lord’s Resistance Army, a Ugandan militant group led by exiled war criminal Joseph Kony.

This is not true. But that didn’t stop Mulvaney from including it in his statement denouncing the deal!

“Finally, the ‘deal’ is full of pork,” Mulvaney said. “A dam project in Kentucky got extra money; the state of Colorado got money to help with its flooding; and the ‘Lord’s Resistance Army’ received special funds. Those may be worth discussing, but that will never happen now, as they were crammed into this ‘deal’ in order to help it pass. So much for the ‘clean’ bill that my Democrat colleagues said they wanted so badly.”

As noted by the Huffington Post, the money in the deal will actually fund the Pentagon’s efforts to support African forces currently conducting a manhunt for Kony.
