Gooooooo Pope Francis!

I am not a religious person, nor a fan of the Church … but I must say that the fact that Pope Francis’ recent pronouncements have left the far right near apoplectic, and that these over the top responses have so nicely exposed their hypocrisy  fills me with glee

Rush Limbaugh – “pure Marxism”

Sara Palin – “He’s had some statements that to me sound kind of liberal, has taken me aback, has kind of surprised me”

Adam Shaw – “Like Obama he mistakes the faithful for the enemy, the enemy for his friend, condescension for respect, socialism for justice and capitalism for tyranny”

Judge Andrew P. Napolitano – “His encyclical is about economics, and it reveals a disturbing ignorance”

and on they went.  Up until recently the right has regularly been on Obama for disrespecting the Church and the Vatican.  This doesn’t sound too respectful to me.  Apparantly The Pope is all powerful and infallible … except when he disagrees with them.

Regret

sooo, Nicolas Cage arrested and booked … looks … not happy … “I did bad”

Same with Nick Nolte

And yeah … James Brown had a very, very, bad bust

But Rush … Rush gets booked and looks like he is posing for publicity photos.  The man has NO sense of shame.  He so lacks any sense of responsibilty, he smiles for a booking photo … and blames ‘liberals’ because he called a young woman a slut because she advocated birth control.  You sir … are a prick

Some Reads to Start The Week Off

This speaks to the very core of conservative distrust of science. A fundamental of science is that once something has been conclusively disproved, you ought to stop believing in it, and certainly ought to think twice about using it as the foundation for building your own supposedly “scientific” notions. You can believe that if you feed a horse a penny, it will poop out a dime, but once the experiment has been tried and has failed you probably should cancel your plans for a horse-based retirement fund.

What we call the Brandeis Ratio — the ratio of the average income of the nation’s richest 1 percent to the median household income — has skyrocketed since Ronald Reagan took office. In 1980 the average 1-percenter made 12.5 times the median income, but in 2006 (the latest year for which data is available) the average income of our richest 1 percent was a whopping 36 times greater than that of the median household.

Brandeis understood that at some point the concentration of economic power could undermine the democratic requisite of dispersed political power. This concern looms large in today’s America, where billionaires are allowed to spend unlimited amounts of money on their own campaigns or expressly advocating the election of others.

We believe that we have reached the Brandeis tipping point. It would be bad for our democracy if 1-percenters started making 40 or 50 times as much as the median American.
