Junk about junk, and other junk

Krauthammer seems to think that John Tyner coined the euphemism “junk” for his genitals. He deserves credit for what he did, but not for that… the Weedwhacker is a bit out of touch, isn’t he?

Meanwhile, Gadsden just got updated (h/t: AoSHq)








The mad woman that Californicators just re-elected to the Senate compares our policy on gays in the military to that of North Korea, Iran, and Pakistan. Let’s see…we don’t allow out homosexuals to serve in the military, and they don’t allow out homosexuals to live. One of these things is not like the other.

The pens that Pres__ent Øbama uses to sign bills which require money borrowed from China are made in…China. Khruschev, sales, rope; some assembly required.

Terry Mattingly fisks the NYT on dissident “Catholics” in Belgium.

It’s totally bizarre to say that “in the view of Rome” these independent believers are not Catholic priests who are leading Catholic rites.

Why? The Vatican is the institution that ordains and retains Catholic priests, through its bishops around the world who are in a state of Communion with the pope of Rome. Love it or leave it.

This is like saying that someone can play for the New York Yankees without the legal permission of the New York Yankees. Or try this: Start your OWN gender-neutral New York Yankees squad and try to show up and play the canonical Red Sox team. Let’s see how the Times handles that one.

Mr. Beck points to the briefest and most accurate summation of the Windsor family (or is it now technically the Mountbatten family?) nuptials: Unemployed English Girl to Wed Soldier from Welfare Family

Vanderbeogh asks why this stinking turd passed the Senate Judiciary Committee unanimously. The members of that committee affiliated with the Allegedly Limited Government Party are:
Jeff Sessions, Alabama, Ranking Member
Orrin Hatch, Utah
Chuck Grassley, Iowa
Jon Kyl, Arizona
Lindsey Graham, South Carolina
John Cornyn, Texas
Tom Coburn, Oklahoma

Do what needs to be done.

Atlas is shrugging. My microfilm score project has been stalled at Preservation because of a shortage of microfilm leader. Sharlane is having a difficult time finding any. Now, this is essentially just 35mm film without photochemicals. One could in a pinch use somebody’s reel of old porn shots, though that would be confusing to the patron expecting a collection of motets. Yes, digitization is becoming ever more popular, but film isn’t totally obsolete.

TSA even screws with our soldiers. Money quote:

This might be a good time to remind everyone that approximately 233 people re-boarded that plane with assault rifles, pistols, and machine guns–but nothing that could have been used as a weapon.

    1) The official surname is Mountbatten-Windsor.

    2) You’re committing the same mistake that Mattingly did. Roman Catholic =! Catholic. See the Old Catholics, etc.

    3) I’ve seen the TSA story already, along with some people claiming it’s actually an urban legend.

    It seems to me that hyphenated Catholics are not real Catholics in the sense that the modifier asserts some difference from Rome. Anglo-Catholics are mostly about the non-primacy of the Bishop of Rome, etc. Even if the splinter is orthopractic, it’s not orthodox, and the net effect of B16 establishing the Extraordinary Form and then the Ordinariate is to make belief more critical than practice. I’ve been through this all before with the Gardnerians.

    Citation on urban legend claims for the soldier story? Seems like it would be easy to debunk given the number of soldiers on the plane…unless it were created out of whole cloth, in which case it would be only slightly harder.
