Is Pope Francis a Communist?

Some conservatives are labeling recent comments from Pope Francis as an indication that the pope is a Communist. I have included a few links with differing points of view.

I lead with Rush Limbaugh: http://www.rushlimbaugh.com/daily/2014/06/30/pope_francis_says_communist...

Here is an article from CNBC showing the concern of at least one wealthy Catholic donor. Is this a form of extortion? You be the judge. http://www.newsmax.com/Newsfront/langone-dolan-pope-fundraising/2013/12/...

Eric Cantor To Join Investment Bank Moelis & Co. As Vice Chairman And Managing Director

Yes the former U.S. House Majority Leader Eric Cantor will join investment bank Moelis & Co as vice chairman and managing director. Defeated in June by a Tea Party challenger in a Republican primary election, will now provide strategic counsel to the company's corporate and institutional clients on key issues.

"Eric has proven himself to be a pro-business advocate and one who will enhance our boardroom discussions with CEOs and senior management as we help them navigate their most important strategic decisions," Moelis CEO Ken Moelis said in a statement.

Too many Blacks? Democrat Quinton Ross thinks so.......

Let me get this right, Dems wanted voting districts to include a certain number of blacks, white, hispanics, seniors, etc etc to make voting fair. Now there's a district that elects a Black rep each election and is now even bigger than before with more Blacks and they are screaming. Liberals make me laugh http://www.usatoday.com/story/news/politics/2014/09/01/supreme-court-red...

Bumping yet another inappropriate poll from the front page

....by the color of their skin, but by their character. It's a total breakdown of parents and coaches when kids playing a sport that emphasises team work end up in a bench clearing brawl. They learn this from major league ballplayers, hockey players, and bowlers who exhibit the same behavior regularly.

Let's put the Obama vacation and golfing right-wing b*llsh*t to rest right now

"Presidents don't get vacations — they just get a change of scenery. The job goes with you." -- NANCY REAGAN

Next right-winger here who makes a vacation-related remark is guilty of hypocrisy and making a liar out of The Most Holy Nancy Reagan.

Is It Starting?

Federal armed officers fired on a militia member, on private property. After at least four shots, they ordered the militia member to drop his gun. The militia member did exactly as he was told--he dropped his gun, and it seems nobody was harmed. If a cop is shooting at me, and stopped shooting long enough to say: "G-man, lose the piece", I'd do just exactly that and let the gun drop to the ground. I'd hate to see the headlines in the paper saying something like: "G-Man, known locally as G-Man, the Gentle Giant, died today after a shoot-out with Federal Officers."

The can't-do president?

A leading right-wing newspaper continues its unjustified attacks on President Obama's performance in the foreign arena. Oh wait ...

Toledo Water question

Tagged:  

I don't have a Toledo Talk account--so I hope you'll allow me to ask this question on SB. Ever since the Toledo water situation it seems like the water pressure in my house is lower. I'm debating if I should call my plumber to have it checked out.

Anyone else experiencing the same low-pressure issue?

Expect links soon from the usual suspects

.....a new source to back up Alex Jones etc
The Occupy Wall Street movement, which blazed brightly two years ago amid a sea of arrests, vandalism and attacks against the wealthy, is coming back in the form of an online TV channel.
Occupy Television, in conjunction with FilmOn Networks, the National Convention PBC and a new union of the groups Occupy Television, ArticleV.org, and the National General Assembly, vows to bring the group's mission to the masses.
