UPDATED: The widely-held, yet absurd notion that the United States of America was never a Christian nation can only be believed if you are (a) ignorant of history, (b) if you are too stupid or too lazy to look, and/or (c) if you’re just an evil jack-rear (altered from the original). But don’t take my word for it. Let’s look directly to the United States Supreme Court Records.

And Mr. Atheist, stick this in your pipe and smoke it…

Vidal v. Girard’s Executors (1844): The Court produced a ruling which said, “Christianity is not to be maliciously and openly reviled and blasphemed against, to the annoyance of believers or the injury of the public.” The Court’s decision asked the question…

Drinking On Work Time And Tax Payers’ Dimes!

Only in federal government jobs can an employee get paid to plan parties,drink,sit in hot tubs and in expensive Vegas hotel rooms, and not get fired! Drinking on work time and tax payers’ dimes!

You can read the full report here by the Office of the Inspector General.

The conference cost us $823,000. That’s pennies when put in context of the federal budget, but it’s the waste, fraud and abuse that is infuriating. For example:

–Conference planners spent $130,000 on two “scouting trips” to Vegas and five off-site planning meetings where government employees wined and dined themselves.

–The GSA spent nearly $150,000 on catering for the conference, including $5,500 for three semi-private in-room parties and $31,000—or $95 per person—on a closing reception.

–In one team-building exercise, attendees put together 24 bicycles at a cost $75,000.

–Thousands were spent on commemorative coins and a mind reader was paid $3,200 to provide entertainment.

–When the projected room costs went over budget, GSA shifted costs to the food and beverage side.

–Emails show that GSA official Jeff Neely organized a private party during the conference and had his wife, who does not work for GSA, invite personal friends, on the taxpayer’s dime. Wrote Neely, “I know. I’m bad. But as Deb (his wife) and I often say, why not enjoy it while we have it and while we can. Ain’t going to last forever.”

OBAMA’S SUPREME COURT JUSTICE SAYS SHE HAS ONE LESS JUDGE TO SELL NOW

At least Barack Obama’s personal justice on the Supreme Court admits it. Elena Kagan says it’s her job to sell (O’s policies) to the judges – only now she has just eight of them  to “close,” vs. the previous nine – when she worked (officially) for the O-man. So, was Kagan’s appointment to the High Court and the fact that ObamaCare would end up there too coincidental? Of course not – but more on that later.

Speaking at a forum last week to honor the 30th anniversary of Sandra Day O’Connor’s nomination to the Supreme Court, the Court’s newest justice said of her move from serving as the O-man’s Solicitor General to serving on the Supreme Court: “Sometimes I think that the job doesn’t really  change at all.” (With the exception of now being able to leak…
