more news on fundamentalism

some clown in the house of representatives with a bad tie omitted the stupid 'under god' while leading the house in the pledge of allegiance. as expected, mother fuckers worked themselves into a frenzy of reckless savagery and insane fury.

Rep. Pete Sessions, R-Texas, accused McDermott of "embarrassing the House and disparaging the majority of Americans who share the values expressed in the pledge. He and those like him stand more for the liberal left than they do for our friends and neighbors."

this, of course, is related to the current supreme court case Elk Grove Unified School District v. Newdow, regarding whether it is constitutional or not to have the pledge (in its current incarnation) recited at all in schools.

the reference to god was not introduced into the pledge until the 1950s, after representative mcdermott had learned the pledge as the cnn article points out. more information about the previous federal appellate case leading to the supreme court case and subsequent idiotic reactions to it can be found at this fucking article.

not to be out done, the bbc reports on a new package of sharia laws in the northern nigerian state of zamfara. even if your monkey ass doesn't read the article, take a look at the sign that the state government put up -- just look at it:

yes, you are not losing your mind. the fucking welcome sign says: "welcome to zamfara state. home of farming and sharia. we wish you a happy stay."

i'm beginning to see why the excesses of stalinism were necessary.

on a side note, what the fuck are they saying the pledge of allegiance at the house of representatives anyway? and why do they need someone to lead them in it? aren't they already wasting enough of my time and money without regressing to second grade? is the house minority whip peeling a layer of elmer's glue off his hand and freaking out the girl representatives as we speak?
