Mandeville, LA – Mike Church’s daily Pile of Prep, chock full of why theNSA’s Surveillance State plus other [r]epublican stories used to perform the Mike Church Show on Sirius/XM Patriot channel 125. “In the larger Batman story, there are ever expanding and widening concentric circles of community and responsibility in an egalitarian-ish hierarchy that nicely parallels the Catholic teaching of subsidiarity. Indeed, it is well established in the history of the Waynes that they are Roman Catholic. In one of the best story lines written about Batman, Chick Dixon establishes the Waynes in the line of Arthur, and, as it turns out, Bruce Wayne protects the Holy Grail in this modern day.”
Whither Count Chocula? Brits play guinea pigs for new hamburger that was grown in a petri dish from cow DNA. If we can grow cows, grow vegetable that are resistant to Roundup, can a tasty box of Boo Berry or Count Chocula be far behind!?
Media Incompetence. Fox News runs with a story headline promoting “Intercepted communications between Al Queda leaders” led to the Embassy shut downs then proceeds to inform the reader that no one will confirm the dubious “facts” of the story! “Asked about the claim, officials with the CIA and Office of the Director of National Intelligence would not confirm the details of any such intercepted communications.”

The Latin phrase of the day. “In cute curanda plus aequo operanda juventus.” Youth unduly busy with pampering the outer man.
If it is true that the GOP has melted into a “cheerful ball of hate” because it has so many factions inside it compounded by egos the size of Caligula then one might ask what series of events could possibly cause such a rift? The inconvenient answer to Miss Davidson’s tirade against Senator Rand Paul is that government has failed nearly every constituency it is publicly allowed to claim ownership of. All that legitimately remains to be debated is self absorbed spending and re-election priorities.
Flashback to Lew Rockwell: What exactly do the DUI, DWI laws and the .08 BAC laws criminalize?! Crimes that have YET to occur
Rep Justin Amash is not cracking under the stress of so many attacks being hurled Senator Paul’s way and stands by his earlier statements that Edward Snowden is indeed a “whistleblower” and not the “traitor” Rep Peter King et al try and paint him as.
The WaPo sells to amazon’s owner for 1/20th of what the WSJ sold for 5 years ago, proving the unstoppable demise of big media outlets in the current paradigm. of course this doesn’t mean that al that money and power went to fark.com buzzfeed.com but there HAS been a transfer of reading locations with the new ones being nearly devoid of profit potential
From the “if you have nothing to hide why do you care if the government spies on al of us” file comes THIS, the DEA has bee funneling cherry picked “intelligence” gleaned from wiretaps and other “data mining” to police forces across the country to set-up arrests for drugs and then bury the warrantless, illegal paper trail
RNC to CNN: Run that puff piece on Mrs Clinton you are filming and we will shut you out of ALL our Presidential debates come 2015/16. This begs the question of just how far the evolution of CNN can go from a news outlet to a spinoff of the Travel Channel
Where the jobs are: In government and “non-profits” as this story and chart show, gubbmint job growth is the NUMBER ONE GROWTH industry in the United States
What in the Hades is a “temperature poll” and why in Dude’s holy name should I care? Ohhh, because Chris Christiani is currently the “hottest” pol tested using it
