Coffee Bowl Browsing

Apparently, some pigs are more equal than others. During negotiations with the county supervisors, union reps sell out their members for thirty pieces of silver, i.e. in exchange for the county's agreement to continue automatically deducting union dues from members' paychecks.

BXVI's inter-religious Assisi meeting will not be a repeat of JPII's controversial meeting in 1986. 

Four congregations of religious sisters challenge Goldman-Sachs executives to justify their salaries.  Some of these guys make $14,000,000 a year!  Maybe that seems high to me b/c my monthly stipend is $150. 

N.H. GOP representative calls local bishop a "pedophile pimp."  The 28 y.o. House Leader later apologized for the comment and has asked to meet with his bishop in order to apologize. 

A Freudian slip, or a peek at the truth?  L.A.Times lists its own website as B.O.'s re-election campaign site! 

"Celebrity priests" and their inevitable fall. . .apparently, my Mewling Minions need some lessons in proper fawning. 

Professor arrested for closing a student's laptop.  In the past, I've allowed students to use their laptops in my classes so long as they used them to take notes.  Didn't take long for me to realize that Facebook, IM'ing, etc. distracted students from the discussion.

Pro-American, pro-military movies make money.  Anti-American, anti-military movies do not.  Guess which kind of movies Hollywood loves to make?

    Nuns who know nothing about either economics nor high finance have no business questioning Goldman Sachs executives about their salaries. Put any of those nuns in the executives' seats for a day and they'd be dumbfounded. Put them in charge of the company and just see how many more people would lose their jobs because of incompetent management. When GS executives run a profitable company, they create jobs. When leftist-leaning sisters and American Presidents and representatives and senators mess up the American economy with their well-intentioned but ignorant and ineffective and impractical government "solutions" to poverty, then jobs are lost. Why don't we look at those sisters' voting records and challenge them to justify their votes for Democrat politicians, given how Democrats have ruined the American economy leading to job loss and extravagant waste of taxpayer money.

    Nuns who are shareholders do.

    How nice to see that in addition to lesson preparation of their catechism responsibilities, attendance at daily Holy Mass and all of their community's other prayer schedule components, the Sisters have time to get involved in shareholding operations. Good thing the habit alleviates so much time needed for a woman to take care of her secular wardrobe and apparel. Since in recent years the Sisters have made a monumental disaster of their own major institutional responsibility by abandoning it - the Catholic school - I doubt that we can afford to hear what they have to say in other quarters that the Church has NOT entrusted to their care.
