Neal Boortz on Muslim Outrage

March 30, 2009 MGP 0

Although Boortz makes some valuable points here, he’s a little soft on Islam in general. Islam is not a religion of peace, nor does its central text shy away in any sense from its blatantly sanguinary, absolutist doctrine. That so-called minority of Islam is actually following its religious directives quite faithfully. The Qur’an is clear about this… Qur’an 8:12 – “Your Lord inspired the angels with the message: ‘I will […]

Oskar isn’t exactly what you call a popular 12-year-old boy. Pale and outcast, he spends his days stewing over the regular bullying he endures at school, stabbing a tree with a knife, imagining his tormentors at the other end of his blade. His sadness and vulnerability are utterly palpable. He’s alone in a way only a truly outsider child knows. Until he meets Eli. Eli is an outsider as well. […]

Suffer the little children to wear cutesy Bible propaganda to bed. Eyebrow piercings are so ’90s. And that whole branding thing has been completely played out. How about a subcutaneously implanted touch-screen that runs on blood? Holy hair extensions! Woman’s life is saved… by her own bulletproof weave! You’ve lost your child to a kidnapper. Your entire life is turned upside down… especially since tax time is coming! You call […]

New ARC Addition: eMac

March 27, 2009 MGP 0

The 22nd addition to my Apple Retro Collection is the eMac. No, not the iMac, but the eMac. This model of Apple computer lasted about 4 years from 2002-2006, was the final PowerPC Mac ever made, and was initially geared towards the educational market (hence, the “e” in eMac). The eMac is definitely in that class of Macs that I like to define as oddball Macs, right alongside the eMate […]

March 21, 2009 MGP 0

So, Charlie Manson’s now elderly and will no doubt die in prison. Jim Jones exited life while taking 900 other followers along with him. And Koresh went completely up in smoke. But, the spirit of Christ-inspired cult leading has not perished as is evident with this charming and glassy-eyed bunch of end-times devotees… from Wikipedia: The Lord Our Righteousness Church, sometimes called Strong City, is a religious community near Travesser […]
