  1. In my very strong opinion — and I speak to you as chairman of the veterans committee in the Senate — I do not believe that people fought and died for democracy so that billionaires can buy elections.
    Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT)

  2. Jesus’ teaching to love our enemies was understandably shocking to his original audience—just as it is to us today. Jesus expected much, which is why, after telling his audience to love their enemies he added that if we only love those who love us and do good those who do good to us, we’re doing nothing more than what everyone naturally does (Luke 6:32-33). But his followers are to be set apart by the radically different way of love. The distinct mark of the reign of God is that God’s people love and do good to people who don’t love them and don’t treat them well—indeed, to people who hate them, mistreat them, and even threaten them and their loved ones.

  4. If a weak Dalai Lama comes along, then it will just disgrace the Dalai Lama.

    Dalai Lama Sees No Need For Successor: “Let Us Finish With A Popular Dalai Lama”

    I have such a boner for this story.

    "I’m the fucking best Dalai Lama ever. I have Dalai Lama’d the fuck out of this reincarnation so basically, suck shit, next cunt".

  6. Inclusive economies always outperform and outlast plutocracies. That’s why investments in the middle class work, and tax breaks for the rich don’t. The oldest and most important conflict in human societies is the battle over the concentration of wealth and power. Those at the top will forever tell those at the bottom that our respective positions are righteous and good for all. Historically we called that divine right. Today we have trickle-down economics.

    In 2001, the iPod was a new entrant in a new space littered with false starts, attempting to disrupt a well-established product category. Using it necessitated owning a separate, more robust device as a hub. It would be the precursor to the iPhone six years later, which would eclipse its…

    I am very proud to present A is for Zebra, a real-life, honest-to-goodness Crap Hound-like alphabet book that I have designed with my very own, real-life hands.

    Most of the book’s oversized pages feature a brightly colored letter surrounded by black-and-white images whose common names begin with that letter. This provides a wonderful test of the reader’s recognition and recall, as well as simply being a pleasure to look at.

    Unlike cheaper, less reputable alphabet books, all of the nearly 27 letters in A is for Zebra are in their CORRECT order. What’s more, I have worked tirelessly to ensure there is only a single main letter per page, avoiding the countless haphazard letter combinations found in many novels and magazines. My promise to you: If you find even a single letter out of order, I will refund the FULL purchase price.

    Later in the book, you will discover I have included a delightful bonus—a comprehensive guide to the images of the previous letters. This is an incredible help for slow-witted or younger readers.

    One final note… while it’s true certain LiartownUSA posts have fudged the truth a bit, this is a genuine announcement about a real thing in the real world. Although I have tried to deceive you in the past, that was for your own good, because you were gullible. Think of this post as a trust exercise. Don’t be afraid to slump backwards into my strong, waiting arms. I love you so much right now.

    This full-color, 11”x15”, 36-page book is now posted for pre-orders on Kickstarter, if you’d like to get a better look. There are more GIFs and a short, inspirational video that reiterates much of what I’ve said here, with additional explosions and dramatic music. 

  9. Unaccountable, unelected, secretive credit-scoring agencies still control vastly more of our lives than any free people should tolerate.
  10. Beginning with the Clinton regime, the American economy has only worked for the One Percent, and it only works for them because the government makes the 99 percent bail out the One Percent. The American economy is an Aristocratic Economy that works for the government-privileged few, but not for anyone else.

Some religiously observant friends on Facebook are complaining about this style of blister pack Eucharist, which is apparently a thing in the States now. They’re complaining because people are calling them Christables (glorious) and I’m trying really hard not to ask them if Jesus will come and do my taxes for me if I eat one.

I’ve only seen it at a methodist church, but holy shit was it weird. 

Christables!

I Can’t Believe It’s Not Jesus

Christ 2 Go


Oh man I want a case of these.

“Arming police with military weaponry and outfitting them for battle is a recipe for creating violent conflict where there was none and achieves the opposite of keeping public order. Governments need to make an effort to convince citizens that they are seen as allies, not enemies. Then there will be fewer rioters and insurgencies for military or paramilitary forces to suppress.”
