In a recent interview with New York Magazine, Supreme Court Justice, Antonin Scalia, talked about his belief in the devil as an actual person. I find it disconcerting that someone we trust to make decisions for us as a nation believes in the devil.
In the Gospels, the Devil is doing all sorts of things. He’s making pigs run off cliffs, he’s possessing people and whatnot. And that doesn’t happen very much anymore.
Rep. Phil Gingrey (R-Ga.) said that Republicans should have a Braveheart Moment in regards to the government shutdown and the impending debt ceiling that will come as a result of the House Republicans holding the budget hostage over healthcare. Woo, that was a mouth-full. But I get it, bringing the government to a screeching halt in an attempt to stop people from getting healthcare is similar to fighting and dying for Scotland’s freedom from a treacherous, murdering and raping King. Anyway, I drew Rep. Phil Gingrey as Wallace from Braveheart… wait, maybe he just meant “We’re as crazy as Mel Gibson!”
Ted Yoho, a Tea Party Republican freshman, who was instrumental in the government shutdown, said “If the debt ceiling isn’t raised, that will sure as heck be a moment. I think, personally, it would bring stability to the world markets.” I read this quote in an article from The Washington Post. Following the article a user by the name of scientist1 commented, “That’s because you’re a cow doctor, not an economist.”
