"Attempts to undermine the legitimate currency of this country are simply a unique form of domestic terrorism. While these forms of anti-government activites do not involve violence, they are every bit as insidious and represent a clear and present danger to the economic stability of this country."

- US Attorney Anne Tompkins adds insult to usury after Bernard von NotHaus was found guilty of "domestic terrorism" for creating and marketing the Liberty Dollar - a gold and silver alternative currency that has been in circulation for a decade. Oh, just one more thing. I've seen a lot of comments at various news sites claiming Obama was behind this - kind of like when they blamed Ruby Ridge on Clinton/Reno, even though that happened a year and a half before Clinton was even elected. In this case, the investigation and raid on NotHaus' company took place under Preznit Dubya's watch. Here is the best, most concise and balanced summation of this troubling story that I have yet to come across.


"I stoned Murray with a rock in a sock."

- Here's another bit of exhibit to add to the Himalayan-sized mound of evidence proving that religious people aren't only no better than non-believers, a lot of the time, they're worse - and sometimes they're worse precisely BECAUSE of their religious beliefs. Pennsylvania man John Thomas says that after his 70-year-old same-sex "friend" made unwanted sexual advances towards him, he prayed to GAWD to tell him what to do. And, apparently, GAWD told him to do what the Old Testament demands and stone the bugger, leading to the Doctor Seuss-like nugget of a quote reproduced above. Never mind this same 70-year-old "friend" had also just happened to leave Thomas a bunch of money in his will, and that Thomas tried to cover up the incident for over a week before finally giving himself up. Nah... it was just another case of one of those frickin' gays not knowing when to quit, maaan...
