Some recent tidbits from some of the blogs out there.
Astrosmith writes on economics (always a favorite subject of mine.)
Our current system, while it allows great economic freedom in most things, has a support system that takes away the pain felt by people as prices rise or they make bad choices in how they spend their money. ... So, to best match human nature, stupid people must be allowed the freedom to do stupid things, and they must be allowed to experience the pain/loss from the consequences of their stupid actions! This is how people grow up. They will not be stupid forever.
Res Ispa enlightens us on the "benefits" of illegal immigration.
What exactly have the Mexicans done for us that we should celebrate their minor accomplishment?

1. 95% of warrants for murder in Los Angeles are for illegal aliens.
2. 29% of inmates in federal prisons are illegal aliens.
3. Nearly 60% of all occupants of HUD properties are illegal.
4. 36% of illegal aliens are on welfare. The cost of immigration to the American taxpayer in 1997 was a NET (after subtracting taxes immigrants pay) $70 BILLION a year.
5. The lifetime fiscal impact (taxes paid minus services used) for the average adult Mexican immigrant is a NEGATIVE.
CrazyJo wonders if it is just her that is bothered by the commercialized Church.
I guess my problem is with the overall "slickness" of the package. And the fact that it's packaged at all.
It seems like all churches I've been to lately are getting more and more the same. What can we do for you? What program can we create to suit your needs? How can we be more current and "hip"?
And finally, Pink Kitty shows herself to be a heretic with her outrageous, spurious, and libelous claim that the beloved William "Captain Kirk" Shatner can't act!
Ben Affleck rumored to play Kirk in new Star Trek movie

OK... I know. It is actually kind of funny to think about it. Ben Affleck [who needs acting lessons (see Team America for the song)] would play Capt. Kirk, originally played by William Shatner... who can't act his way out of a paper sack.
