It says something about our nation that nothing can simultaneously unite and divide us like the IRS. As you know, some idiots at that agency did some idiot s***, and their idiot bosses didn’t smack them down soon enough. So of course, everybody hates the IRS even more than they usually do. And the wingnuts already hate Obama so much, they can’t hate him any more without their heads exploding (the sensible people just shake our heads at the poor schmuck).

Using political criteria as the IRS did is despicable and anyone who did it should get de-jobbed as soon as they have been proven guilty. Targeting certain groups of people for “special treatment” is the sort of thing that was done by the Romans, Spartans and the Spanish Inquisition, to name a few examples. “Chilling effect” doesn’t even begin to cover it.

Speaking of targeting people for harassment, Congressional “Republicans” have seized upon this as Yet Another Chance To Beat On The Black President instead of doing useful work. We need a budget, laws, all sorts of tasks accomplished that only Congress can do: and they are doing none of it. Because they are spending what little time they actually spend at “work” trying to de-job Obama.

Screw anyone who is screwing We The People: especially the IRS and Congress. With the aforementioned chainsaw. And not gently.

Around the world, people and pundits are dealing with severely bunched-up undergarments after hearing that Big Bennie is stepping down as Pontiff.

Relax, everybody, not much will change. The Roman Catholic Church will still be the same organization that offed Huguenots by the truckload during the Reformation, tortured even more Jews during the Inquisition and molested unknown numbers of innocent children; just to name a few of their “greatest hits”.

Popish fellows come and go, and the Church continues committing crimes against humanity and indulging in financial activities that Bernie Madoff couldn’t even imagine. At the same time, individual members of the Church do wonderful things for poor and downtrodden people around the world. The Pope matters little to the church.

And how can this be true? Simple: his last day on the job is February 28th. His successor won’t be chosen until sometime in March. If Joey Ratz (or any Pope) were all that friggin’ important, how could the Church run without him?

Nope, the Pope matters not one bucket of warm spit. The Church goes along through the centuries, being both the best and the worst of humankind. Which schmuck sits in the Chair of Peter makes no difference.
