My wife and I recently lost a pregnancy. It was an abdominal ectopic and simply had no chance. She had to have surgery, it was difficult, emotional and painful. The hardest part of it was gritting my teeth thru the standard "God has a plan" and "God must have needed another angel" pablum.

I know people were trying to be comforting, but it's not. I had flashes of white hot anger and simply left the room when a Chaplin dropped by uninvited started in on that and wanted to pray for us. It was either leave or a long stream of profanity. The OB/Gyn group only admitted to an Adventist hospital who seem to labor under the mistaken notion that everyone shares their cruel, barbaric dickhead of a deity.

Apple lays into the FBI's case and obvious lack of goodwill and incompetence that created this situation.

If this quote from Mitch "The Turtle" Mcconnell were true wouldn't the SCOUTS be an elected position? Clearly it isn't and just as clearly there's nothing anywhere that says President's can't appoint justices to fill vacancies during there last year in office. The assertion there is takes the coincidence that no justices have recently died during the last year in office and elevates to some sort of rule that not found in the constitution or amendments.

“The American people should have a voice in the selection of their next Supreme Court justice,” Senator Mitch McConnell of Kentucky, the Republican majority leader, said in a statement. “Therefore, this vacancy should not be filled until we have a new president.”

Take it easy Glenn, rest in peace. This makes me very sad. Desperado was one of this first albums I ever had. My sister won it on a radio call in contest and gave it to me because she was more the disco type back in the 70s. I think I was 11 at the time. It just seems wrong to lose a piece of my childhood...

Does this mean he's headed to the Middle East to fight ISIS himself? Either that or it's another installment of "Marco Rubio: Profiles in Pandering"

The weasel has a problem with honesty. He's tried very hard to paint himself as paragon of Christian virtue and as a political outsider. Neither appears to be the least bit true.
