Did you see where the batshit crazy lady

is at it again? She's honking about the archeological proof of the Bible.


the down and dirty on this weekend's Apocalypse:

David Meade, a self-published author, bases his prediction on a complex set of calculations and inferences centered around the number 33 and imminent interference from the planet Nibiru. Sept. 23 is 33 days after the solar eclipse, which Meade sees as significant. He believes that a constellation will reveal itself over Jerusalem on Saturday, triggering the launch of a series of catastrophic “tribulations” that will mean the end of life as we know it. NASA, meanwhile, has repeatedly said that the planet Nibiru does not exist.

SO, what are you folks doing with the precious little time we have left. I'm getting my nails done. Rapture Red.

Trump faking empathy in Texas

is really testing my gag reflex. And the media eating it up--even MSNBC--is worse. But I tell you one thing. I would NEVER let that despicable vulgarian pick up or kiss my child!

This works for me

Ran across this quote from Asimov, which I love because it eliminates all the pointless word-mincing.

“I am an atheist, out and out. It took me a long time to say it. I've been an atheist for years and years, but somehow I felt it was intellectually unrespectable to say one was an atheist, because it assumed knowledge that one didn't have. Somehow, it was better to say one was a humanist or an agnostic. I finally decided that I'm a creature of emotion as well as of reason. Emotionally, I am an atheist. I don't have the evidence to prove that God doesn't exist, but I so strongly suspect he doesn't that I don't want to waste my time.”
― Isaac Asimov

Completely LOST in the press conference insanity

is the fact Trump's infrastructure "plan" will revoke an Obama-era executive order that required strict building standards for government-funded projects to reduce exposure to increased flooding from sea level rise. Its meant to “streamline the current process” for what Naomi Klein calls the Disaster Capitalists. It will make another Katrina nightmare more likely.

And do you notice that since Saturday, we haven't talked about Russia, or North Korea, or Healthcare? The media is being [unintentionally] complicit in Trump's (and the GOP's) deconstruction of our democracy. YES, they need to cover Trump's partnership with the Alt-Right/White Nationalism, but they ALSO need to focus on what disastrous programs his cabinet is working on! I think this is a large reason why most in the GOP are sticking with him - he is quietly getting their dirty work done.

A rapid, rabid regression of history

I'd been saying for a while that the Republican assault on women's rights had started to make me feel we were back in the 60s, but the racism that has been stoked under Trump seemed reminiscent of the 50s. Trump's "fire and fury" rhetoric can't help but make you realize that the nuclear horror of the 40s is a real possibility. Now this, in Charlottesville. The 30s! A good plot for a movie. Except it's real.

Democratic party leaders will continue to welcome anti-choice candidates. Really?

I call BS on this. As my grandmother would say, you stand for something or you fall for everything.


Cure for Leprosy

just ran across this in my cache of Bible science. In case you need the cure for Leprosy:

Leviticus 14 (KJV)
"4 Then shall the priest command to take for him that is to be cleansed two birds alive and clean, and cedar wood, and scarlet, and hyssop:
5 And the priest shall command that one of the birds be killed in an earthen vessel over running water:
6 As for the living bird, he shall take it, and the cedar wood, and the scarlet, and the hyssop, and shall dip them and the living bird in the blood of the bird that was killed over the running water:
7 And he shall sprinkle upon him that is to be cleansed from the leprosy seven times, and shall pronounce him clean, and shall let the living bird loose into the open field.
8 And he that is to be cleansed shall wash his clothes, and shave off all his hair, and wash himself in water, that he may be clean: and after that he shall come into the camp, and shall tarry abroad out of his tent seven days.
9 But it shall be on the seventh day, that he shall shave all his hair off his head and his beard and his eyebrows, even all his hair he shall shave off: and he shall wash his clothes, also he shall wash his flesh in water, and he shall be clean.
10 And on the eighth day he shall take two he lambs without blemish, and..."
And unfortunately there's more

Alternatively, you could just take antibiotics.
