Oh, yeah, come on down! Nothing says fun like blood, boils, gnats, cholera, and dead children!
It was true in the Creation "Museum", and it's going to be true in this theme park: these creationists worship death and suffering.
In case you weren't aware that Fox (and other news organizations) are legally allowed to lie, they are.
'Fox lawyers argued it was their first amendment right to report false information. In a six-page written decision, the Court of Appeals decided the FCC's position against news distortion is only a "policy," not a "law, rule, or regulation."'
"No ground troops." But there will be sanctions and probably within days, cruise missiles and drone attacks. Because two wars are not enough.

A cease-fire must be implemented immediately, and Gadhafi's troops must be pulled back from several cities, he said. Power and water must be restored to those cities, he declared.
"These terms are not negotiable," Obama said.
How did we go from hemming and hawing on the no-fly zone to giving ultimatums from Washington instead of the UN?
I mean, geez, Barry, couldn't you have said that when you were negotiating the health care bill? How about when it comes time for all the phony budget "cuts" the Rethugs want and you're caving to? The words "non-negotiable" are not in his vocabulary at all, except when it comes to Gadhafi. Heaven forbid he'd be so forthright when it came to his own people.
If Gadhafi doesn't comply, the U.N. resolution will be imposed through military action. The United States will work as part of an international coalition, Obama said, but American troops will not be deployed in Libya.
KILLER CONFESSES: I Stoned That Homo To Death Just Like The Bible Says I Should
A 28-year-old Upper Darby man has been charged with murder after telling police that he stoned a 70-year-old man to death when the man made homosexual advances toward him, authorities say. John Joe Thomas, 28, of Sunshine Road in Upper Darby, spent almost every day with 70-year-old Murray Seidman at Seidman's Lansdowne home, police say. Days before Seidman's body was found on Jan. 12, Thomas allegedly beat Seidman to death with a sock full of rocks. Thomas told authorities that he read in the Old Testament that homosexuals should be stoned to death. When Seidman allegedly made homosexual advances toward him over a period of time, Thomas said he received a message in his prayers that he must end Seidman's life, according to court documents. Police say that Thomas struck Seidman in the head about 10 times with the sock of rocks. Thomas left Seidman dead in his apartment, and then threw his bloody clothing and the bloody sock in a dumpster, according to authorities.
This isn't victory, but it's a start. A judge in Wisconsin has issued a temporary order blocking Governor Walker's bill to end collective bargaining, which was illegally passed during the night without any Democrats present.
A Wisconsin judge on Friday issued a temporary order blocking the state's highly controversial new law stripping the collective bargaining rights of public employee unions.
Judge Maryann Sumi of Dane County issued the order in response to a request by District Attorney Ismael Ozanne (D). As The Associated Press summarized, Ozanne contended that the legislative committee that passed the bill "met without the 24-hour notice required by Wisconsin's open meetings law."
I believe it will be very difficult for Governor Koch to defend the bill in court for two reasons. One, they met without the 24-hour notice required by open-meetings law. And two, the bills passed by the conference committee, assembly and state senate actually contained differences, meaning the bill that Walker signed into law most likely wasn't legal.
We'll see what happens next.
…will now ask: Have you had an abortion? Did you keep your receipt? if the GOP legislation passes as part of their "No Taxpayer Funding for Abortion Act".
"Were this to become law, people could end up in an audit, the subject of which could be abortion, rape, and incest," says Christopher Bergin, the head of Tax Analysts, a nonpartisan, not-for-profit tax policy group. "If you pass the law like this, the IRS would be required to enforce it."
So ladies, be sure to ask your rapist for a receipt. And if he doesn't give you one, well, you are having that kid. How any woman can vote for the GOP is beyond me.

Despite consistent claims of low inflation during this endless Great Recession, Americans are paying dramatically more for gasoline, electricity, heat and food — everybody notices the $4 gas, but the jump in food prices to a 36-year record is harder to see because it's spread out across your grocery bills. And now the official inflation rate is rising, up half a percent for January and .06% in February, just as millions of American households are running out of emergency unemployment benefits and many millions more are surviving on stagnant or part-time wages. With federal, state and local governments slashing services at a furious clip while taxes most harmful to the poorest people are shooting higher — check out what you're paying in sales tax this year! — the basic cost of existing in this teetering country has gotten completely out of hand.
