I shall move in here. Every day the schoolbus will back up the driveway, open its back doors, and dump my kids into the big funnel that leads to their rooms.

Loveliest comment, by JMixx: "The original, heavy security doors are built to withstand a 2000 lb blast and are at the underground home entrance."
That's IT! I am DONE with poking my potatoes with a fork before I microwave them.

Glenn Beck is a tool.
Anyone committed to the concepts of social justice, be they Christian or otherwise, should understand that misuse of religion in this way is - frankly - obscene, and that non-GOP Christians ("gasp! I thought they were only mythical creatures!") and non-American Christians ("the hWHAT? The heyyyy-eck youuu seh. Nawn, Ah seh, NAWN-Amurkun Chrisjins? Cain't really be Chrisjins though, kin they?") are mostly baffled and distressed by this sort of crap.
If you're interested, there is an online letter/petition (Tell Glenn Beck: I'm a Social Justice Christian
) being assembled on the Sojourners website.
This was my blurb:
I'm someone who not only believes in the biblical call to social justice, but grew up steeped in it.
More, I believe that **opposing** the concepts of social justice... well, it is an obscenely immoral and heretical position for ^anyone^ to take, let alone someone claiming to represent the faithful. False prophets and deceitful leaders don't fare very well in the literature.
How can you possibly claim that the very things Christ said to do (serve the poor, minister to the sick, visit the imprisoned, support the orphans and widows, etc etc) are wrong FOR CHRISTIANS to do?! [Surely not, JUST because Obama said it was a good idea, all with "character-building"-this and "teaching children to put others first"-that? Surely not?]
It's an argument I could maybe "see", coming from an anarchist or a nihilist, but a member of the LDS? The public and self-declared spokesman for "the-party-what's-NOT-evil-socialist-fascist-dictating-totalitarian-hippy-free-love-tree-huggers"?
I believe in God's will for justice in every aspect of our individual, social, and economic lives.

Christie Bradley, 39-year-old married mother of two from Waterloo, Missouri, has been arrested for allegedly trying to have sex with a 13-year-old boy. Court documents say the 13 year old (about the same age as her own children) boy told police that Bradley kissed him on the lips at his home on September 19th. He also told police that Bradley communicated with him through Facebook and text messages.
The documents say an investigator started posing as the boy and communicated with Bradley through text messages and several sexually explicit messages were exchanged between Bradley and the undercover agent.
Among them- the agent asked Bradley, "Do I need to get condoms? Or do u have some?" Bradley allegedly replied, "I'll get some. Then u don't have 2 worry bout gettn caught with them. We have 2 use them."
Mrs Bradley also sent boy another message asking, "Do u want me 4 me or do u want me 4 the sex." [...]
Court documents say arrangements were made for Bradley to show up at the teen's home Wednesday for sex. We're told she showed up with lingerie and condoms and was arrested without incident.

BARD loses out to The Matrix in new course because he is too irrelevant to students.
