Michele Bachmann says the Rapture is coming: 'Rejoice'

Daily Kos Ref: http://www.dailykos.com/story/2015/04/25/1379546/-Michele-Bachmann-says-the-Rapture-is-coming-Rejoice

Looks like the apocalypse to me!

Former Rep. Michele Bachmann is very excited that the world may be coming to an end. Iran may be getting the bomb, and gay people are getting married these days, and all of this is wonderful news because it means Israel is going to be destroyed and there will be wars and plagues and famines and that means Jesus is going to come back to fly all the bestest Bachmann-approving-of Christians into heaven while her enemies get left to rot in whatever post-nuclear wasteland comes next. You think we are making this up. We are not making this up.

"Jesus Christ is coming back. We, in our lifetimes potentially, could see Jesus Christ returning to Earth, the Rapture of the Church."…so, sayeth the craziest bag-o-nuts to ever have been seen in Congress


Can you pass this practice police test? If so, you might have a career, Mr. and Ms. America...

I took this and scored 28 out of 31 (90%), due to some dumb mistakes. I don't think you have to go far to make them…



Back in the days when I lived in Florida, I knew Governor Bob Graham was engaged with the constituency. He introduced state inspection (which at the time cost $3!).

I've admired him since, was sad to see him step away from the Senate, and salute his efforts today!

Post analysis finds few prosecutions among thousands of fatal shootings by on-duty police

Ref: Washington Post

Among the thousands of fatal shootings at the hands of police since 2005, only 54 officers have been charged, a Post analysis found. Most were cleared or acquitted in the cases that have been resolved.

I've been viewing posts and videos here, listening to what my fellow DUers have to say. Again and again, there are low post numbered therein…

Are the more "privileged" of color that silent? Have any of you written to the aforementioned police departments informing them that we are watching them closely? Or, are you afraid of being watched closely yourselves? Actually, I'm not afraid of that at all, since we are already watched closely.

May as well tell them what you think and how unacceptable you think this is.

Billy Holiday was born 100 years ago...

She was born exactly one year after my mommy. I never knew that her most affecting song, "Strange Fruit" was written by Abel Meeropol, a white, Jewish high school teach from the Bronx and a member of the Communist Party.

Here's the song and the story in remembrance of Billy Holiday…


Thank you for choosing to serve. Unfortunately, that Jury is full.

Enough, already! I've gotten a continual loop of this.

If I answer it ten more times, then I'll set a fucking record!

So, who is watching back episodes of Orphan Black as we wait for April 18th?

If you have Comcast, then you'd check in here: http://xfinitytv.comcast.net/watch/Orphan-Black/7064684981656793112/full-episodes#episode=6779150309143397112

If you are a subscriber to BBC America, you can get access to seasons one and two, which our family is enjoying online.

Meanwhile, I sincerely hope that Orphan Black is not over-looked for it's EXCELLENT content and acting. I want it to go beyond it's "3 season arc" writing.

Some leakers are more equal than other leakers, aren't they?

"Thanks, Mr. President! She wasn't going to tell anybody important, anyway!"

UGH - What a disaster!

I was SO looking forward to making what is supposed to be an exceptionally good korma from a long held Classic Indian Cooking book of mine. But, BOY, what a hot mess I made of it.

Now, all I can do is pick out the burnt onions and try to add a separate batch of onions. Breaks my heart.

Royal Braised Vegetables in Cardamom Nut Sauce (Shahi Sabz Korma)

I prepped all ingredients that were carefully chopped uniformly 1/4 inch x 1/4 inch x 1 and 1/4 length (potatoes, turnips, carrot). Where I screwed up was after the initial part, where the same uniformly cut paneer (Indian Cheese) was fried, then set aside. It called me to add the rest of the vegetable oil, and then on "high" fry onions, garlic, ginger root and green chiles for 10 minutes, stirring constantly.

Well, my stove is new (I know I was supposed to post pictures of my new kitchen, but I haven't yet). My burners must put out WAY more on "high", and in a very short time, I singed the MO-FO!

I can't stand it, but I'm much the wiser now. I don't think I'm gonna try this again until the spirit really moves me.
