More happy consequences from those who bring us gov't run health care.
Hmmmmm: "The eurozone area and wider European Union is now “on the brink” of disintegration unless Germany steps up and provides loans at below-market rates to Greece, George Soros, the hedge fund manager, has warned." I have no love for the E.U. as a political entity, but the collapse of the euro would devastate the economies of the zone. Another reason to scrap the whole bloated, over-priced edifice and allow nation states to be. . .ya know. . .sovereign. Of course, Soros, a leftist billionaire, wants the collapse so he can make the case for the U.N. (or some other unelected body of elites) to grab control of the global economy.
The "Tea Parties Are Really Just Racist Confederates in Disguise" meme is gaining steam in the Old Media. Only the woefully historically ignorant would buy such nonsense.
Completely flushing what little credibility he has left, whiny atheist biologist, Dick Dawkins, threatens to arrest the Pope when the Holy Father visits the U.K. in September. Note to the Holy Father: "Your Holiness, if you need a 300 lbs. Dominican to watch your back--one with years of experience dealing with the mentally unhinged--, I live fewer than two miles down the road from place. Just let me know."
A run-down of the likely 2012 GOP presidential candidates. Looks like a very fallow field.
Maureen Dowd, the NYT's resident self-loathing Catholic, sees the Taliban when she surveys her Church. So, the obvious question is: Maureen, why are you still a member of this horrible woman-hating institution? Diogenes has an intriguing proposal for Dowd. . .one I doubt very much that she will entertain.
The Anchoress spanks the "Women are Oppressed in the Catholic Church" meme and, in the process, exposes the self-loathing sexism of our Cultural Betters.
Speaking of privileged feminists. . .one of my fav TV actors has died: Dixie Carter. When I was Big Liberal back in the 80's, her character on Designing Women, Julia Sugarbaker, was probably one of my top ten lefty heroes.
A new low in anti-average American politics: an organized effort to crash Tea Party protests with racist signs. Watch the MSM lap this up.
Wow. . .and Catholics complain that our bishops can be wimpy when faced with difficult decisions.
Doing what the MSM can't be bothered to do: Fr. Z. does a little fair and balanced reporting on clerical sexual abuse. . .among non-Catholic clergy.
John Allen throws a small cup of cold water on the smoldering hopes of those who see Archbishop Jose Gomez's appt. to replace Crdl. Mahony as a conservative revolution in the making. Generally speaking, BXVI is not appointing conservatives to the American episcopate. Rather, he is appointing pastorally astute, sensibly orthodox men to serve the Church in the U.S. . .which is exactly what we need.
Of course men are happier than women. Here are about 30 reasons why. My fav: "Your underwear is only $8.95 for a three-pack." Heck, if you shop at WalMart you can get a 10-pack for $9.00.
Ooooooooooo. . .I need one of these to get around Rome's sidewalks when it rains!
Also, check out the updated WISH LIST. A few new books added for the dissertation. Grazie!
