    2. My last pay check was $9500 working 12 hours a week online. My sisters friend has been averaging 15k for months now and she works about 20 hours a week. I can’t believe how easy it was once I tried it out. This is what I do,

  3. I was reading about the Mormon revelation in 1978 that said black people can become priests, and there is some really brilliant Orwellian memory-holing going on with the reactions to the decision. Here’s what an apostle of the church said:

    All I can say to that is that it is time disbelieving people repented and got in line and believed in a living, modern prophet. Forget everything that I have said, or what President Brigham Young or President George Q. Cannon or whomsoever has said in days past that is contrary to the present revelation. We spoke with a limited understanding and without the light and knowledge that now has come into the world…. We get our truth and our light line upon line and precept upon precept. We have now had added a new flood of intelligence and light on this particular subject, and it erases all the darkness and all the views and all the thoughts of the past. They don’t matter any more…. It doesn’t make a particle of difference what anybody ever said about the Negro matter before the first day of June of this year.

    This is practically Stalinist.

    “We have always been at war with Eastasia!”

    2. He laid it on pretty thick, but my impression simply from reading that is that he is calling on people to embrace the idea of black priests and not cling to past prejudices.

      I actually have to admire someone who is willing to say that their prophet(s) got it wrong in the past and that they are smarter and more enlightened now and will act accordingly. I’d like to see that more often from religions, my own included.

  4. Few things are more annoying than trying to chat with someone who starts with the premise that having water is a “right” and that the only thing keeping people everywhere from having free drinking water is capitalistic greed.

    That water costs money to get, treat, transport, and deliver costs lots of money and capital doesn’t matter because “water shouldn’t be treated like a commodity.”

    Then we move on to how capitalism is the source of all of the world’s ills and shortages.

    1. To people like that, the world was the Garden of Eden and capitalism was the snake….

      1. It’s the mindset that particular commodities shouldn’t be “treated like commodities” because they are necessary. It’s a complete lack of even a rudimentary understanding of economics.

        People need water so the fact that it costs money to get water to places that don’t have much of it shouldn’t matter!

        They simply don’t get that water is a resource that’s just like any other, and costs actual money to procure and deliver in potable form. And even if they do acknowledge that, they say “well it shouldn’t matter.” And when you state that “should” has nothing to do with it, you’re called a corporate shill, etc.

        And what’s worse is that he didn’t stop at just water, but that “basic foodstuff” and electricity should be added to that.

          1. You know, I had never heard of that guy in my life, but I enjoyed several of those songs. Thanks for tuning me on to something new. I’m not even a particular fan of American folk rock, but that guy does it right.

    2. Tell him that he should really try to find Giardia Water. Tell him it is natural water and produced without anyone making a profit. See if he actually looks for it at the co-op or something.

  5. Murderess rips 7 month old baby out of woman’s womb, baby dies, Mom lives.

    Is this a criminal homicide? The prosecutor indicates that it’s *not:* “The issues involving an unborn child are complicated under Colorado law. In most circumstances, if a child was not actually born alive, then homicide charges are not possible.”

    In 2013, the state legislature turned down a bill which would have made killing a baby under these circumstances a crime.

    1. It’s going to be a charge for the crime against the mother though, right?

      1. Check the second paragraph of the article I linked and find out!

    2. Abortions are exempted from the normal process of law at the mother’s discretion, so why not charge crimes against the mother and her presumptive child along the same lines? If she gave every indication that she wanted to have the child (which isn’t farfetched if she kept the pregnancy), why shouldn’t the fetus be treated as a victim?

  6. Speaking of water and religious pronouncements:

    “End Times broadcaster Rick Wiles knows what is to blame for the record California drought: gay people and legal abortion.

    While discussing the drought on his “Trunews” radio show yesterday, Wiles said that measures to conserve water are not going to help the state since it is currently experiencing divine punishment.

    “Rain will follow repentance,” Wiles said. “The state is in the forefront of spiritual rebellion against God: abortion; homosexuality; pornography; Hollywood’s movies that promote sexual immorality, violence, bloodshed, witchcraft, occult practices; the television industry; the crime and street violence in California cities. All of it has combined to reach a level of depravity that has reached Heaven and God has no other choice but to cut off the rain. So let’s see how long Californians will suffer without water before they humble themselves, repent of their sins and call upon God to save them.”

    1. End Times broadcaster Rick Wiles knows what is to blame for the record California drought: gay people and legal abortion

      I’m really shocked that someone from the End Times (network…radio show…podcast?) would blame bad things on immorality.

      1. I like to call them “eschatonists.”
