No surprise, this:

Thousands – yes, that’s right. Thousands! – were beaten and raped in Irish reform schools. And who ran those schools?

Do I really have to ask?

…most leaders of religious orders have rejected the allegations as exaggerations and lies, and testified to the commission that any abuses were the responsibility of often long-dead individuals. –Los Angeles Times via AP

Deny, deny, deny.

Pandemic bullshit

Updated here.

Like a dog humping your leg, the media just can’t help itself.

  • pandemic: epidemic over a wide geographic area and affecting a large proportion of the population;
  • epidemic: spreading rapidly and extensively by infection and affecting many individuals in an area or a population at the same time.

Is anyone else fed up with the constant bullshit being spewed by the mainstream media in its latest attempt to garner viewers and convince them that they’re all on the way to hell? If you’re lucky enough to have escaped the market meltdown, if you’ve avoided the declining housing price debacle, and if you haven’t been tortured or had your constitutional rights violated by the BushCo admininstation, you’re going to catch a fatal disease and die, mutherfucker!

The sooner the better.
