The week that was

“But I say to you, love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you, so that you may be sons of your Father who is in heaven; for he makes his sun rise on the evil and on the good, and sends rain on the just and on the unjust.”
– Matthew 5:43-48

Lots of people, among them many conservatives, got all riled up this week when video footage emerged of Obamacare architect Jonathan Gruber saying that American voters are stupid. To defend himself, Gruber need only remind these enraged people that Americans elected Obama. Twice.

The Republicans in Washington are still reeling from their grand midterm election victory. All they can think about is “what does this mean for 2016?“, forgetting that the year is 2014 and they have a lot of work to do.

Four Turkish terrorists were captured in Texas this week. They were smuggled across the Mexican border.The terrorists said they just wanted to make sure they got here in time for the executive amnesty they’ve heard Obama is promising. Oh, and they also wanted to arrive while the border patrol agents were unarmed.

Drill, maybe, drill? The House of Representatives approved construction of the Keystone Pipeline XL project, again. It might actually have the chance of going somewhere now that the Republicans control the Senate. Obama, though, will probably deny Congress’ approval. If the president really loved Mother Nature, as he claims he does, he’d love her for what’s most important: what’s on the inside. 

It’s getting really, really cold everywhere. Shouldn’t we be just as afraid of global cooling as global warming? I guess people are more OK with everyone covering themselves up more than taking more of their clothes off.

And speaking of taking clothes off…Kim Kardashian posed nude for Paper magazine in an attempt to “break the internet.” All she did was break the print publication’s chance at any revenue from magazine sales because she posed nude for the magazine all the photos made their way online.
