Want to know why I'm done with a whole lot of people?

This would be the reason.

Before his meeting with the leadership of the U.S. Bishops Conference Thursday to discuss recent allegations of serious mishandling of clerical sex abuse reaching up to the pontiff himself, the pope used his homily at morning Mass to once again condemn accusers as allies of the devil.

Not accusing others “goes against the spirit of the world,” the pope told his small congregation in the chapel of his Santa Marta residence. “Among us is the great accuser, who always goes to accuse us before God, in order to destroy us. Satan: He is the great accuser.”

“When I enter into this logic of accusing, cursing, trying to hurt the other, I enter into the logic of the great accuser who is destructive,” he said, “who does not know the word ‘mercy.’ He does not know it and has never lived it.”

Oh go **** yourself with a rusty chainsaw.

Mercy?  How about the boys abused?  How about the seminarians abused and, if they didn't relent or cover up, who had their careers and vocations destroyed?

How about the financial matters -- the money you took from all the parishes under false pretense -- that you were a House of God, not the house of Sodom and Gomorrah?

How about the coverups -- including, it now appears, your personal complicity and active involvement in them?

I'm increasingly convinced there is no God for one simple reason: If there was he would have struck you down where you stand, *******.

No, not illegal immigrant -- invader.

Now we have another dead young woman.

An illegal alien from Guatemala has been charged with stabbing to death a 16-year-old girl in Long Branch, New Jersey.

Bryan Cordero-Castro, a 20-year-old illegal alien, has been arrested and charged after allegedly stabbing to death 16-year-old Madison Wells, according to the Monmouth County Prosecutor.

Done yet?

Mind telling me why not?

Next, what's with the GoFraudYou garbage?  I've just had two family members die in the last couple of weeks.  Do I particularly like that?  Uh, that would be a "No."

But if you have that sort of expense involved it's because you want it, not because you need it.

$15,000 for funeral expenses?  Blow me.

How do I know?

Because I've got the bill right here in front of me, that's how.

I've written the check, so **** off on talking to me about that, and as for the rest throw every damned illegal invader out right now.

I'm tired of conversations with Mr. Grim and those who cause them to take place ought to be hung by the neck as his next tribute.

Let's cut the crap eh?

Musk was recently on video, in a podcast, smoking weed.

Marijuana is illegal under Federal Law.  The current consumption of same is an instant, automatic and always bar to a security clearance.  It does not matter if it's legal to consume marijuana for recreational or medical purposes under State law when it comes to Federal matters.

Prior use of weed is not always a disqualifying act but current consumption of any federally-illegal drug (or abuse of any drug, legal or not) is.  Period.

There is a man here in the local area who was employed by a federal contractor and who was using non-mind-altering CBD under a doctor's advice, legally, here in Florida.  He was just recently fired in the last couple of months for consuming legal, medical, non-psychoactive CBD and in his particular case, according to local media, his job had no direct security clearance implications.

You can disagree if you want but those are the rules -- no consumption of any cannabinoid products are permitted if you do work for the Federal Government under contract nor may you hold a security clearance if you consume these products whether under medical advice or not.

So how does Musk's company Space-X have any Air Force contracts and how does he hold a security clearance, which he apparently does, and why wasn't that clearance immediately revoked?

**** you Donald Trump and **** you Federal Government -- all of you.  Nobody gets away with that crap that is in the "general population" and is an "ordinary person."  This sort of "special treatment" because you have a billion dollars and are a flaming, five-alarm ******* is why I pray for an asteroid strike on DC every single evening before going to bed.

You knew it would happen.

There are those who have claimed that the "open letter" accusing the Catholic Hierarchy, including three successive Popes, of intentional blindness and obstruction related to priestly abuse of young men and boys was nothing more than a vicious and libelous attack.

Well, it either was or wasn't -- and it looks like it's "wasn't".

VATICAN CITY (AP) — A 2006 letter from a top Vatican official confirms that the Holy See received information in 2000 about the sexual misconduct of now-resigned U.S. cardinal, lending credibility to bombshell accusations of a cover-up at the highest echelons of the Roman Catholic Church.

Catholic News Service, the news agency of the U.S. bishops’ conference, published the letter Friday from then-Archbishop Leonardo Sandri to the Rev. Boniface Ramsay, a New York priest who made the initial allegation.

Ramsay informed the Vatican in a November 2000 letter about then Cardinal Theodore McCarrick’s misconduct with seminarians from Seton Hall University’s Immaculate Conception Seminary. Ramsay, who in 2000 was on the faculty at the seminary, has said he sent the letter at the request of the then-Vatican ambassador because he had heard so many complaints from seminarians that McCarrick would invite them to his beach house and into his bed.


This is hard corroborating evidence that Pope John Paul II knew McCarrick was a sexual predator before he made him a Cardinal.

In addition it's also damning evidence that Pope Benedict, who followed, not only failed to do anything about it but also intentionally covered it up.

Nice try at deflection SatanFrancis; what we now appear to have is solid evidence that there have been three successive alleged "Popes" who were explicitly involved up to their necks -- necks that should have been be indicted, tried, convicted and then hung.

And oh by the way, that's still possible for two out of the three isn't it?

So much for the left's narratives on guns and school shootings...

This spring the U.S. Education Department reported that in the 2015-2016 school year, "nearly 240 schools ... reported at least 1 incident involving a school-related shooting." The number is far higher than most other estimates.

But NPR reached out to every one of those schools repeatedly over the course of three months and found that more than two-thirds of these reported incidents never happened. Child Trends, a nonpartisan nonprofit research organization, assisted NPR in analyzing data from the government's Civil Rights Data Collection.

We were able to confirm just 11 reported incidents, either directly with schools or through media reports.


The rest were unaccounted for because -- wait for it -- the schools refused to respond.

In other words of those more than two thirds were intentionally false and of the remainder only 11 were confirmed -- the rest, given the record and intentional non-response, have to be considered questionable at best.

11 out of 240?!

So you mean these incidents are extremely rare and intentionally over-reported, with one forced to conclude that such was almost-certainly for political purposes?

Uh huh.

It gets better.  FACEBOOK PULLED A POST CITING THIS DATA claiming it didn't comply with "community standards."

This sort of intentional slant and intent to pervert political process must be met with the destruction of the firms involved -- now.

If the government will not do so then we as citizens must -- by boycotting every single firm that advertises on that company's sites and by blackballing everyone employed by them.
