Man of God? Gimme a Break...

Oh boy, have I got an update for you today. I've got so much stuff, I'm going to have to break it up into individual items. In fact, I don't even have time for an into. So, without further ado...

Item #1: Pat Robertson. Pat Robertson proved the extent of his madness yesterday when he called for the assassination of Hugo Chavez, the President of Venezuela. On his batshit-crazy show, "The 700 Club", Robertson told his viewers about Chavez: "If he thinks we're trying to assassinate him, I think that we really ought to go ahead and do it..."

Now this hardly surprises me, as I already knew that Robertson was a loonie. What surprises me is the people who continue to watch his show and admire him as a "Man of God", even after he advocated breaking what is possibly the greatest law of his faith (i.e. "Thou shalt not kill.").

I will never understand Right-Wingers.

Item # 2: Bush Compares Iraq to World War II. That's right ladies and gentlemen, Dubya dared to venture out of the safety of his ranch to speak to an audience of elderly veterans in Utah, the most conservative state in the Union. In his speech, Bush actually compared the Invasion of Iraq to World War II.

Yet again, this only proves that the President is completely out of touch with reality. If the man had any sort of coherence or sense of reality, he would realize that this war has absolutely nothing in similarity with World War II. Dubya would be able to see this if he took the time out of his schedule to walk a little bit down the road outside his ranch, where he could see Cindy Sheehan and her supporters protesting his War of Aggression.

Item # 3: Supreme Court Upholds Eminent Domain Ruling. This is, quite frankly, an outrage. The Supreme Court refused to revisit its decision on Eminent Domain yesterday. I am surprised that this hasn't generated more outrage in the Blogosphere. This decision, which the court refused to overturn, gives local governments the power to seize and demolish homes for private economic development.

Now, I'm no right-wing nut, and I realize that seizure of homes is a necessary evil for public works projects, such as interstates. However, seizure of homes for private economic development, such as Wal-Marts, is simply too much. The government has overstepped its authority on this one. I'm just saddened that a ruling with such ominous implications as this one hasn't generated more outrage from the Blogosphere and Main Stream Media.

Come on bloggers, quit slacking off.
