Fox News – Shibuya Eggman

 If you don’t find “Shibuyaeggman” on the International Atomic Energy Agency’s list of Japanese nuclear power stations, that’s because “Eggman” is a dance club for indie and underground bands in the Tokyo district of “Shibuya.” Sounds like a fun place to drink, have fun, and not evacuate due to a nuclear meltdown.

personal opinion: Fox News has to be staffed with the dumbest shits in the industry, from the top to the very bottom.

U.S. millionaires say $7 million not enough to be rich

NEW YORK (Reuters) – A million dollars ain’t what it used to be.

More than four out of ten American millionaires say they do not feel rich. Indeed many would need to have at least $7.5 million in order to feel they were truly rich, according to a Fidelity Investments survey.

Some 42 percent of the more than 1,000 millionaires surveyed by Fidelity said they did not feel wealthy. Respondents had at least $1 million in investable assets, excluding any real estate or retirement accounts.

Just a thought, perhaps they need an ‘Earned Income Tax Credit’?

Oh wait, wait, wait; they got that with the Bush tax cut. 

nevermind

Is Beck channeling ‘Falwell’?

Beck: “I’m Not Not  Saying” God Is Causing Earthquakes

Discussing the devastation in Japan on his radio program this morning, Glenn Beck lamented that we “can’t see the connections here.”

Beck said that he’s “not saying God is, you know, causing earthquakes,” then clarified that he is “not not saying that, either,” then added: . . .

 “Whether you call it Gaia, or whether you call it Jesus, there’s a message being sent and that is, ‘hey, you know that stuff we’re doing? Not really working out real well.’ Maybe we should stop doing some of it.”

Falwell’s ‘top-ten’ crazy-ass quotes: 

10. “The idea that religion and politics don’t mix was invented by the Devil to keep Christians from running their own country.”


9. “The ACLU is to Christians what the American Nazi party is to Jews.”

 8. “I hope I live to see the day when, as in the early days of our country, we won’t have any public schools. The churches will have taken them over again and Christians will be running them. What a happy day that will be!”

7. “AIDS is the wrath of a just God against homosexuals. To oppose it would be like an Israelite jumping in the Red Sea to save one of Pharaoh’s charioteers … AIDS is not just God’s punishment for homosexuals; it is God’s punishment for the society that tolerates homosexuals.”

  
6. “Nothing will motivate conservative evangelical Christians to vote Republican in the 2008 presidential election more than a Democratic nominee named Hillary Rodham Clinton – not even a run by the devil himself … I certainly hope that Hillary is the candidate. She has $300 million so far. But I hope she’s the candidate. Because nothing will energize my [constituency] like Hillary Clinton. If Lucifer ran, he wouldn’t.” –at a “Values Voter Summit”

5. “Grown men should not be having sex with prostitutes unless they are married to them.”

4. “Billy Graham is the chief servant of Satan in America.”

3. “He is purple — the gay-pride color, and his antenna is shaped like a triangle — the gay pride symbol.” –from a “Parents Alert” issued in Jerry Falwell’s National Liberty Journal, warning that “Tinky Winky,” a character on the popular PBS children’s show, “Teletubbies,” may be gay
 
2. “You’ve got to kill the terrorists before the killing stops. And I’m for the president to chase them all over the world. If it takes 10 years, blow them all away in the name of the Lord.”

1. “The abortionists have got to bear some burden for this because God will not be mocked. And when we destroy 40 million little innocent babies, we make God mad. I really believe that the pagans, and the abortionists, and the feminists, and the gays and the lesbians who are actively trying to make that an alternative lifestyle, the ACLU, People for the American Way — all of them who have tried to secularize America — I point the finger in their face and say ‘you helped this happen.'” –on the 9/11 attacks
