Life in the universe

Consider the following video:


Given the absolute massive size of just one star out of hundreds of billions that comprises just one galaxy out of hundreds of billions more, I think it impossible that there is not life somewhere. I'm not talking about the Star Trek sense where their planet is just like our with one teensy difference (i.e. the Nazi's won WWII or they're all Prohibition Era Gangsters). Life, in some form, must exist elsewhere. Maybe it's amoeba or germs or some form of life we can't fathom, but it's out there.

"Those Jews....Those Zionists"

He's 9 kinds of crazy. This guy has been our President's spiritual advisor for over 20 years. Think about that. You all know the famous lines about "chickens coming home to roost" and "God damn America" so this is not a long trip to "those Jews" and "those zionists". He also talks about "ethnic cleansing in Gaza." I got news for the Reverend. If there's any attempts at ethnic cleansing in Gaza, it ain't those tricksy Jews.

Frankly, I hope he's telling the truth and that he hasn't spoken to the President, the only thing he would do is poison him further. If the GOP were smart, they'd video tape ever sermon this guy makes for the next 5 years. They'd also interview him ad nauseum.

Hubris defined

"By his own admission, he becomes chairman of General Motors Corp. knowing nothing about the auto industry."

Neither do I. Can I be Chairman? I mean, I'm available and given the state of things how much worse could I make it?

Michele Obama's Charm Offensive continues

No wonder the world loves us now.

Europe swings Right as depression deepens :: Ambrose Evans-Pritchard: "The establisment Left had been crushed across most of Europe, just as it was in the early 1930s."

Hang in there America! There appears to be Hope after all. I just need an Obama countdown widget....

Republicans Take Control Of New York State Senate In Parliamentary Coup

Republicans Take Control Of New York State Senate In Parliamentary Coup: "How did it happen? Democrats can thank their own: Pedro Espada of the Bronx and Hiram Monserrate of Queens, who turned their backs on their fellow Democrats and joined with Republicans."

Leave it to WCBS to use the word "coup". Oddly they used no such language when Arlen Spectre switched sides in the most openly craven political maneuver of the year.

Democrats so irate that two of their own defected they revert to literal sabotage to prevent their loss of control.
