People that grouse about me calling Southern Republicans malicious, stupid and ignorant should take this quote and stuff it in their delicate pieholes:
The latest survey from Democratic-leaning Public Policy Polling, provided exclusively to TPM, showed an eye-popping divide among Republicans in the Bayou State when it comes to accountability for the government’s post-Katrina blunders.
Twenty-eight percent said they think former President George W. Bush, who was in office at the time, was more responsible for the poor federal response while 29 percent said Obama, who was still a freshman U.S. Senator when the storm battered the Gulf Coast in 2005, was more responsible. Nearly half of Louisiana Republicans — 44 percent — said they aren’t sure who to blame.
Yes, 73% of Louisiana Republicans either blame Obama or “aren’t sure who to blame.” [!!!] There must be something foul in the Kool-Aid they drink down there. Lead poisoning perhaps?
Also too, immortal undead Obama was responsible for, among other things, (1) the Holocaust, (2) killing Jesus and (3) enslaving the Jews in Egypt.
Because the religious impulse is so strong and universal – like testosterone…

“The Church’s teaching on masturbation is unrealistic.” [M]any factors are involved when judging the degree of guilt of any individual who engages in a wrong action such as masturbation. Although masturbation is fundamentally sinful,

I’ve come to believe that one of the bigger problems unleashed by the ever-unfolding series of NSA data-hoovering scandals is the dramatic impact it’s likely going to have on America’s dominant presence at the helm of the global Internet.
Now that everyone knows that the NSA can secretly compel any U.S. company to hand over whatever data it wants, you know that thousands of smart companies all over the world are now trying to figure out how to completely divert their Internet use and traffic away from the United States. Moreover, think about all the thousands of nascent European entrepreneurs who are hatching plans to basically duplicate U.S. web services, base them in Europe and offer them up as an appealing alternative to similar services based in the U.S. that are, at all times, subject to secret NSA data-hoovering.
The growing (and accurate) perception that most US-based companies are not to be trusted with the privacy of electronic communications poses a real threat to those companies’ financial interests. A report issued this week by the Technology and Innovation Foundation estimated that the US cloud computing industry, by itself, could lose between $21 billion to $35 billion due to reporting about the industry’s ties to the NSA. It also notes that other nations’ officials have been issuing the same kind of warnings to their citizens about US-based companies as the one issued by Lavabit yesterday:
And after the recent PRISM leaks, German Interior Minister Hans-Peter Friedrich declared publicly, ‘whoever fears their communication is being intercepted in any way should use services that don’t go through American servers.’ Similarly, Jörg-Uwe Hahn, a German Justice Minister, called for a boycott of US companies.”
Some people thought that my earlier comments on what I thought of marriage were a bit too strident:
For much of its history, marriage was all about transferring ownership of a woman from her father to her husband, which included, for some lucky husbands, that sweet, sweet dowry. But even in our more modern times the same principle obtains: lock two people up in the “bonds” of holy matrimony and then position governmental and ecclesiastical guards at the door to forcefully dissuade them from getting out.
Well, I’m not alone in how I characterize the purpose of marriage. Here’s Kyle Cupp inadvertently helping to make my point:
One of the purposes of marriage is to direct and compel behavior. People make vows, publicly, and henceforth there is a public expectation that the couple will keep their vows. The legal structure of marriage reenforces this expectation. Marriage sets ideals the couple has to work towards. Hard work? Always. Chance for failure? You bet.
So I’m supposed to voluntarily lock up myself and someone else in a (lovely, well-appointed) jail, and the only way to get out is to tunnel through the walls or bribe and sweet-talk the guards? No thanks.
