the bishops of the american catholic church are at the vanguard of the teabag political movement, marching in lockstep with their fellow evangelical fascists who want to control every aspect of people’s personal lives. they don’t want to pay for their employees’ health care like everyone else, yet they want to mandate, by law, for everyone else how to maintain the sanctity of their sperm and ovaries. it’s called hypocrisy.
I drive each day by my local bank. It’s a Chase branch of J.P. Morgan. I don’t have much to save, but I count on my bank to invest my money. Not bet my hard earned dollars, but invest it.

"This is a big time for our team, especially when you look at what's happened in this offseason, missing our head coach, Sean Payton," Drew Brees said Wednesday night on WWL radio. "There should be a sense of urgency and yet it seems like there's not."
With the training beginning soon and with the Saints readying for their post-Bounty season and with the team in desperate need of a leader, unsigned franchise player Drew Brees characterized his contract talks with the Saints as "extremely frustrating" during the interview.
The sides haven't made any progress since winter time. The Saints know that they have the quarterback as their exclusive franchise player, and there they don't have to worry about him signing with another team.
It is true that Louisiana lawmakers have asked the NFL to reconsider the Saints penalties.
And, it’s also true that one of those New Orleans Saints penalized, Jonathan Vilma is promoting the legislator’s recent display of support.
