Ruminations of the Easily Amused for July 10 2009

10 July 2009 at 8:51:30 AM

Online video watching cutting into television viewing. Interesting. We ourselves haven't yet gotten an outside antenna and set it up, because, frankly, there's nothing much we care if we watch AND we can see videos online. We ditched DISH last year, didn't watch most of the channels anyway and I mostly watch Netflix movies. So, there you go. Is television becoming a dinosaur?

Appeals Court says that pharmacists can't refuse to sell Plan B pill. - religious grounds not good enough for refusal

Sotomayer's position on at least one free speech case misrepresented.

AFA, which calls itself "a pro-family advocacy organization," claims that in 2003 Supreme Court nominee Sonia Sotomayor joined a court order that "excused government hostility toward religion."

Well, the court did no such thing, which is clear from a reading of the summary order available at

In 2000, when biblical quotes from Leviticus denouncing homosexuality showed up on two billboards in Staten Island, it wasn't evident who posted the messages, but it was clear they got noticed.

Borough President Guy V. Molinari wrote to PNE, the company that owned the billboards, calling the displays "unnecessarily confrontational and offensive" and saying their message "conveys an atmosphere of intolerance."

PNE removed the signs, saying that Kristopher Okwedy and his Keyword Ministries, which had bought the displays, hadn't followed company policy to display their identity.

Another lawsuit waiting to happen-in Iowa - and here, Spencer Iowa with religious policy

Ben Stone, who heads the American Civil Liberties Union of Iowa, said the U.S. Constitution already protects students' right to pray on their own or learn about religion in school.

"Where's the evidence that students in that district are having their religious freedoms curtailed by the government?" Stone asked.

"Because if that's happening, call us. They don't need to adopt a written policy."

AIG. Is it okay if we pay out some more pricey bonuses to executives even though we took a taxpayer handout? Um. Answer OUGHT TO BE NO!!!

No. No. Wasn't ME paying off my mistress's husband. It was my PARENTS. Heh. Now THERE is an example of family values, if true. You know it's the Family That Stays Together when you can get your parents to cough up money to pay off the blackmailing SOB who's mad you're porking his wife. (John Ensign, another Republican Family Values senator) - Related: Notice how Tom Coburn dodges the question by attacking the media.

God's gonna get you for that! Waco Trib

Yeah. Let's just strip the Fed Reserve of its power.

Sarah *I'm a Quitter* Palin inflated her reasons for, um, quitting.
