Link roundup for 25 September 2010

How convenient: here's a map of American death camps.

Ron Chusid believes John Boehner. But his credibility may soon take an unexpected hit.

Ken Ham just doesn't get it (found via Republic of Gilead).

Is your cell phone an agent of evil?

Yet another anti-gay preacher is accused of gay transgressions (sent by Demwit).

The Catholic Church embodies a hallowed tradition.

Good Morning Infodel!

Enjoying your round up with some Huevo Rancheros on this rain drenched Ranch morning.

Loved the map's, especially the first on the EU,Asia, etc, lot's of laf's, and the death camp and religious one. Remind's me the other day at a neighborhood pool hall, a feller I met and shot a couple round's, rattled off during the entire game, was saying that the concrete divider's on Dallas- Fort Worth Metroplex freeway's were put in by FEMA , to stop driver's from making U-Turn's to try to escape Dallas, when the govenment put's us on lockdown, and Dallas will become a federal prison, and the freeway's all one way, etc. His credibility? Put it this way, in two game's of "8 Ball" I beat him like a red headed stepchild, but did say "Thanx for the warning Bud" What a fucken fruitcake ... geeezzz. :)

Pastor Eddie "Long Dong" Long? Well there certainly been alot on his sexy spandex cell photo's and ceremonies. Let me add ... Buddhism is NOT Bootyism, but I do think he paid way too much for the sex. :)

Vatican money laundering probe (Demwit) ... Sweet! ... I dont think I can recall any group in history with their hand into laundering as long as the Vatican been able to pull it.

Pharyngula on Gateshead Quran burning bust's... um, um, um ... with the way we act over here, it wont be long before it's a federal hate crime too!

So Obama is a Satanist now, heh? Um, um, um ... imagine that. I dont recall one person who ever had as many title's as him. Perhap's at Xmas the GOP/ Tea Pot's, can whine how he is the "Grinch that stole Big Business" :)

The "GOP Pledge" .... Wow, what a treat ... I'm overwhelmed with happiness! :)

Off to work in a bit ... have a good un Guy ...
