Less than two months after President Obama visited the Jefferson North Assembly Plant in Detroit to highlight the billion dollar government bailout of Chrysler, Chrysler UAW workers were caught on tape drinking alcoholic beverages on a 30 minute lunch break. Not to mention what looks like marijuana joints in between swigs of grog and then littering a public park with the empties.
That’s a nice liquid lunch… if it were a public holiday!

As a person who has voted for a Republican, I am a fascist. As you may know, fascists want to control every aspect of people’s lives (and I don’t want to hear any fancy political science definitions to the contrary). With the college football season starting tonight and professional football starting a week from now, it is the perfect time to consider the ethical approach Catholics must take towards professional football. I have attempted this once before, but like Cassandra, no one really listened to my wise teachings. Therefore, I must witness once again by examining afresh all the professional football teams in light of Catholic teaching in order to determine whether Catholics may root for them while avoiding the fires of hell.
A comedy from the U.K. where a devout British Muslim finds out he was not born a Muslim.
Watch the rest of the trailer for some really good English humour!

Here are my Top Picks in the Internet from the world of the Catholic Church and secular culture:
1. On ABC’s “This Week” this past Sunday Arianna Huffington, of the Huffington Post accused Glenn Beck of “inciting the American people” to commit violence against Obama by talking about “people being slaughtered.”
Here is Glenn Beck’s response from last night:
Even though the health care bill seems all but dead, this video is a fine example of what happens when you sell out your conscious to political pressure.
Nancy Pelosi, Harry Reid, and Barack Obama continue to spend, spend, spend away money we don’t have. With the public option now firmly established in the current Senate version of the health care bill, Election 2010 comes to mind.
Kick the bums out.

In this most recent SNL skit President Obama was skewered… royally. It’s as if the SNL writers downloaded my thoughts on President Obama’s recent Asia trip, or what is sometimes referred to as his World Apology Tour: Asia Edition, and wrote this skit
The sarcasm is biting and the humor is hilarious.
The question is, why does it seem that his base is turning on him? Are they realizing that their previous efforts to poke fun at President Obama failed miserably so they turned it up a notch? Or is this genuine creative license that sometimes hits or miss and in this instance it hit? Or are they really upset with the excessive spending that President Obama is pushing for?
My guess is that it’s their creative license that finally hit its mark. I like SNL, but watch it infrequently now that I don’t even have rabbit ears on my tv set to watch the broadcast networks.
This skit certainly got me to smile and lifted up my day ever so briefly.
The most memorable line from this skit is:
“I am noticing that each of your plans to save money involves spending even more money.”
