COINCIDENCE? I think NOT!
Great moments in GO Pee VeePee wordsmithing:
“Right now I just want to enjoy the fair.”
“But obviously, we’ve got to stand with our North Korean allies.”
“If we don’t succeed, we run the risk of failure.”
“I think they’re (Iraq) in the last throes, if you will, of the insurgency.”
Phil Kline – Liberty University Law professor.
Perhaps “pro” is too strong. CONfessor? That’s better.
Currently destroying the minds of innocents, with the same demented ideas that drove his legal career, Mr. Phil has been reduced from losing elections, to trying to defend his law license. Apparently, misleading and lying to state agencies, lying to judges, and refusing to correct the record. His current defense is to claim that the ethics committee created to disbar him is biased.
Phil, a ultraconservative nutcase, was the Attorney General for Kansas from 2002-2006, until even he proved too much for the people of that good state. He was the main reason that the entire state of Kansas still has the reputation of being stark raving insane. His 2007 lame duck appointment to county District Attorney was uniformly derided, and he lost that election by a huge margin.
Liberty U, the place which gave us Monica Goodling, is the perfect fit for Mr. Kline. Jerry Fawell’s law skule could always use more disbarred and disgusting professors.
Just as creeping conservative christian cults*, AynRandism and inane TeaBuggery began to exercise their power in that state, Phil began his attacks on Planned Parenthood. After years of legal abuse, Phil finally lost his office to a DEMOCRAT in 2006. In his short 4 years, he prosecuted in favor of a law which would have required any underage sex to be reported and prosecuted as sex abuse, he sued Dr. George Tiller, and quite probably caused his shooting death with his legal antics and shenanigans. Mr. Phil sued Planned Parenthood (that suit was finally dropped this week), he demanded higher sentences for homosexual rape over hetero rape, and he was forced to defend his efforts at getting churches to create committees to fund and support his reelection campaign in 2006.
In short, this is one very evil man, who uses religion as a weapon against the rest of us.
* Kansas currently has highest rate of megachurch bankruptcies and closures, one of the best indications that it is slowly awakening from its TeaBuggered nachtmare.

Today’s sAINT – Tucson, Arid-zona
In 2010, Tucson boasted of having a $50 million budget shortfall. As a result, it cut water conservation programs, aid to the elderly, and school budgets. Yet, Tucson just voted to fund the rebuild and remodelling of the Catholic Marist College to the tune of $1,100,000. Religion, it seems, is more important than anything else.
Drought conditions in Tucson are so bad, that experts predict that exposed river areas, filled with dormant, but deadly, anthrax bugs, may cause an explosion in anthrax cases throughout Arid-zona and areas east of there.
So glad Tucson has their priorities straight.

Atheists and agnostics UNITE!
This month’s FFRF newspaper reports that 20% of Americans now self-identify as nonbelievers. Here’s the breakdown of US and A by race, to judge what this means.
Blacks make up 12.7%
Hispanics (US and euro) 12.6%
According to FFRF, the self deluded match up like this:
With 20% of the population, it would seem that the general disregard, hatred, and scorn piled upon rationalists by people of faith should begin to backfire. But, I guess that won’t happen unless we also get our own TV stations, and promote rational thinking, in opposition to those TV bible beating bastards who pollute the minds as much as they pollute the airways.
