“I became aware that some of the other priests were actually paedophiles and were not necessarily becoming priests because they wanted to help people, but because they were paedophiles who wanted the opportunity,” he said.

  1. There’s a picture, somewhere, of the world’s smallest violin. Someone should start playing it, just for Ander Breivik.

The Party of Work

Posted on November 9th, 2012 at 16:49 by John Sinteur in category: News

The Pew Research Center does excellent research on Asian-American and Hispanic values. Two findings jump out. First, people in these groups have an awesome commitment to work. By most measures, members of these groups value industriousness more than whites.

Second, they are also tremendously appreciative of government. In survey after survey, they embrace the idea that some government programs can incite hard work, not undermine it; enhance opportunity, not crush it.

Moreover, when they look at the things that undermine the work ethic and threaten their chances to succeed, it’s often not government. It’s a modern economy in which you can work more productively, but your wages still don’t rise. It’s a bloated financial sector that just sent the world into turmoil. It’s a university system that is indispensable but unaffordable. It’s chaotic neighborhoods that can’t be cured by withdrawing government programs.

For these people, the Republican equation is irrelevant. When they hear Romney talk abstractly about Big Government vs. Small Government, they think: He doesn’t get me or people like me.

Let’s just look at one segment, Asian-Americans. Many of these people are leading the lives Republicans celebrate. They are, disproportionately, entrepreneurial, industrious and family-oriented. Yet, on Tuesday, Asian-Americans rejected the Republican Party by 3 to 1. They don’t relate to the Republican equation that more government = less work.

Over all, Republicans have lost the popular vote in five out of the six post-cold-war elections because large parts of the country have moved on. The basic Republican framing no longer resonates.

UK campaigners call for Nobel Prize for shot Pakistani girl

Posted on November 9th, 2012 at 15:54 by John Sinteur in category: News

[Quote]:

Tens of thousands of Britons called on the government on Friday to nominate Malala Yousufzai, a Pakistani girl shot in the head by the Taliban for advocating girls’ education, for the Nobel Peace Prize.

The 15-year-old is receiving specialist treatment in the English city of Birmingham after gunmen shot her on October 9 for standing up against the Taliban and openly advocating education for women.

[..]

“Malala doesn’t just represent one young woman, she speaks out for all those who are denied an education purely on the basis of their gender,” campaign leader Shahida Choudhary said in a statement issued by global petition platform Change.org.

As a former Nobel Peace Price winner, I wholeheartedly agree.

  1. Ok, I usually love the cartoons but what’s that last one about the beer? Part of a running series or a random shot at Casino Royale (the one without David Niven)?

  2. Heineken is advertising the movie a lot. Huge.

  3. I guess a guy can change his tipple, for money.

Apparently Romney Lost the All-Important ‘Slut Vote’

Posted on November 9th, 2012 at 0:18 by John Sinteur in category: batshitinsane

Women make up about 54% of the electorate. It is very hard to win without winning that segment, or at least losing it only narrowly while winning men big. While the right usually wins married women, the fact is that married women constitute an ever-decreasing share of the female population. Women want to delay marriage as long as possible so they can “have it all,” and usually “have it all” means “have as much hot alpha sex as possible without any consequences.” And thus, less married women and more sluts (not that these two groups are mutually exclusive, per se)

So, wait. If all single women are assumed to be stupid, worthless sluts . . . does that mean that single Christian men can only date already-married women if they want to find a good wife?

  1. Actually, Romney lost the vote of anyone with an IQ above 5, or that of a rock. He was inconsistent, pandered to the most vile people on the planet, allied himself with idiots who thought that anyone who didn’t look/act like them were of no consequence, and then proceeded to repeatedly place foot in mouth and attempt to swallow it whole! So, I guess that 49% of the US voting population are idiots… :rolleyes:
