Gutless fucking PUNKS!

Well isn't this indicative of the "liberals" in Wisconsin?

Protesters crowded the street outside Messmer Preparatory School in Milwaukee's Riverwest neighborhood as Governor Walker visited the school Friday to read to children. The protests came just hours after someone vandalized the school ahead of the Governor's visit. 

"Some of these folks super glued our front doors at the prep school," said Br. Bob Smith, OFM, the president of Messmer Catholic Schools, about the school on the corner of North Fratney and East Burleigh Streets.

He told Newsradio 620 WTMJ that a woman was walking in front of the school Thursday, asking people to protest.

According to Br. Smith, one protester said " 'Get ready for a riot,' because they were going to disrupt the visit."
Yep.  Real "tolerant" of those liberals, ain't it?  They love the children so much that they're going to vandalize a school in order to get at that mean Mr. Walker!


I want to puke.

Three Videos you need to watch

Yeah..... so......

Lots of news going on, right?



I haven't been in much of a place to blog about any of it.  Sorry.

Yeah, this fits

It's as good a description of Liberals in Wisconsin as anything else.

It's been several years in the making but things finally seemed ready to go last month when the city finally put the project out to bid. The winner, Kettle Renewable Enterprises, had small subcontracts of $2,000 for women-and-minority-owned firms in its $500,000 offer. However, city alderman Robert Bauman decided this wasn't enough. He vetoed the project, saying more woman-and-minority firms should have been included. "If that means losing $500,000, then we'll lose $500,000," Bauman told the press.

Even though "green" power is a load of crap, and the buy-in on windmills is just the same as Don Quixote tilting at them, city alderman Robert Bauman should still have to pay that $500,000 back out of his own pocket, and if every single possession he owns gets repossessed because of it, then maybe next time he won't be such a clueless fucking douchenozzle.  And we can try to teach a lesson to all the other liberal douchenozzles at the same time, although they typically don't learn until the pain hits them personally.


The more "liberal" a government is, the more money it wastes, the more time it wastes, the more people it wastes.

*rending of garments*

This is the sort of thing that makes me wonder if staying with the Catholic Church is really worth it.  The Church leaders who supported Obamacare are now crying foul because the law would force the Catholic Church to violate it's religious tenents

But wait!  This law was supported by a "Catholic leader"!  How ever could it force a Catholic to violate their religious tenents?  Read the post that's linked.  And then tell me why Sister Carol Keehan still occupies a position in the church at all, because I can't figure out why.

Did she even read the bill?  Or was she so in love with forcing other people to pay for her health care that she threw her support behind it regardless of what was in it?  I am so sick of the Catholic church supporting liberal causes when those causes are pretty much antithetical to what the actual teaching of the church is.  I go to church for my spirit, not to hear political lectures.  And here we are, with the Catholic church getting bit in the ass by Obamacare, and Sister Carol Keehan is shocked, SHOCKED that the Catholic hospitals will not be exempt from it's regulation.

I want to vomit right now.

The War Against Christianity

Continues, this time in Spain.  Look at the pictures.  If this had happened to a group of "ethnic" folks, or women, or gays, it would be front page news.  But because it's happening to Catholics, nobody cares.

I keep having a line run through my head, from Douglas Adams' Hitchhiker's Guide.  One of the opening lines is "So about two-thousand years after a man was nailed to a tree for suggesting that everybody be nice to each other.....'

What is it about Christianity that threatens people so much?  Or is it just that these hateful people have a target that they know will not strike back?  I must admit that I'm not a very good Christian.  Had someone been screaming in my face like that, I would have taken his flag and beaten him senseless with it.

Going Running

Then going motorcycling.  Then buying ammo. 

It's going to be a busy day.
