Really, Syria? You don’t see the irony here? The hypocrisy? The absurdity?

Whenever I hear the phrase ‘there are too many hypocrites in the church’ or ‘the people there aren’t good Christians’ I always smile to myself and think ‘the real hypocrites are the ones who deny they need God and the people who aren’t good Christians are the one’s who never have time for corporate worship, but always have time for everything else, like parties, and shopping and games and the lake and everything else they want to do.
The real hypocrites aren’t in the Church, they’re outside of it and never have time for the God who is alone most worthy of their time.
Very well done. Thanks to Nick Norelli for the heads up. [Previously, on Savage’s hypocrisy].
He is to politicians what Ted Haggard is to mega-Church pastors- a massive hypocrite.
Presidential candidate Newt Gingrich says college students are being coddled, but his own educational record doesn’t exactly elicit images of a person who had to struggle to make ends meet while earning a degree. … But as the Post notes, Gingrich himself took a different path during college, according to a 1995 Vanity Fair article. According to the report, Gingrich leaned on family members for money and said he didn’t want to get a job while in school. Gingrich’s college experience also included a stint as a history professor at West Georgia College. The Wall Street Journal reports that while working at Georgia College, Gingrich was “often absent as he pursued political goals” and that he “spent little time teaching history.”
So he was a mooch, an unemployed git, and now he’s morphed into a hypocrite. He’s the ideal politician. He’s the model elected official.
He whined last night about being outraged that the ‘elite media’ would start a Presidential debate with a question about his marital skankiness. Meanwhile, back in the 90’s, he spent all his time talking about Clinton’s marital doings.
What a hypocrite. He’s Rush Limbaugh with more hair – pure hypocrite.
But that’s what the US has been doing for decades and continues to do. We don’t care about peace and stability, we care about oil and resources. We wouldn’t be in Iraq if it weren’t for oil and we wouldn’t have intervened in Libya if it weren’t for oil. We didn’t bother Syria because it doesn’t have oil and we ignored Bahrain because it’s key to our oil trade.
U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton on Saturday warned Africa of a creeping “new colonialism” from foreign investors and governments interested only in extracting the continent’s natural resources to enrich themselves and not the African people.
Come on Hillary, the hypocrisy of your remarks is so absurd. Indeed, it’s offensive because it suggests we are so ignorant of our own history that we don’t realize what we’ve done and do. As we used to say, ‘get off it’.
When John Boehner rose from Minority Leader to Speaker in January, he not only expanded his staff and his paycheck, he more than doubled the expense-account check he cashes each month. As Minority Leader, the Ohio Republican had received a direct payment of $833 each month from taxpayers to cover “official expenses for leaders,” the same monthly total then-Majority Leader Steny Hoyer received. But Boehner now receives a monthly $2,083.33 direct payment for expenses, according to the most recent expenditure reports from the Clerk of the House.
Steny Hoyer, Nancy Pelosi, James Clyburn, and Eric Cantor all forgo their expense account benefits according to records maintained by the Clerk of the House.
Look let’s face it- the guy is all talk and tears and the only person he cares about isn’t his constituents or the American taxpayer, it’s himself. He’s just another greedy chain smoking self absorbed politician. Nothing more. So as despicable as his behavior is, it’s to be expected. He is, after all, totally depraved.

The Washington Post informs us that at Jerry Falwell’s Liberty University
For at least one day last week … administrators blocked campus access to the Web site of Lynchburg’s News & Advocate, reportedly because the newspaper ran a story about the large amount of federal student aid the school receives. The chancellor of the evangelical college, Jerry Falwell Jr., told the News & Advocate that campus policies allow administrators to “block a number of sites at will.” Falwell wouldn’t give the newspaper a reason for blocking access to its site: “We’re a private organization and we don’t have to give a reason and we’re not.”
Well there ya go. ‘We don’t want our students knowing how much federal aid we’re getting because we constantly advance a Republican ideology and Republicans are all about self sufficiency and if they knew we were getting all that sweet taxpayer cash, it might make them think….’ ‘Oh, and if we want to block any news organization that reports this, we’ll do that too, so stick that in your pipe and smoke it WaPo.’
Last week, Salon.com picked up the story and pointed out that Liberty received more funds than the Corporation for Public Broadcasting, which received $420 million from the federal government.
Bahahahahaha! If the Repubs really want to slash, let them slash Liberty. A private Uni. which taxpayers ought not be funding anyway. (But of course since the ‘liberals’ aren’t running the place, there’s no call for cutting dollars). Demagoguery, pure and simple.

What???? A Pastor being a hypocrite? Heaven forfend, it cannot be (yet again for the billionth time) can it?
The New Jersey preacher who declared Facebook use a sin has shown his true colors: Reverend Cedric Miller admitted that he and his wife had a three-way sexual relationship with a young male church assistant. NBC New York appears to have gotten the story first about the affair. So did the young male church assistant try to contact Miller on Facebook, eliciting jealousy from the reverend’s wife? If this motivated the preacher’s suggestion that his flock get rid of their accounts on the social network, a psychiatrist might call his edict an act of projection, in addition to the hypocrisy that most of us can see.
Gross. I hope they fire him. He’s unworthy of the office. And his wife’s more than a bit of a skank. With thanks (?) to Irene Hahn for telling me about it- on Facebook (oh the irony).
