The Twenty Greatest Metal Albums of All Time… According to LA Weekly | MetalSucks

The Twenty Greatest Metal Albums of All Time… According to LA Weekly | MetalSucks: There are two Pantera albums, two Judas Priest albums, two Motörhead albums, and four Sabbath albums, three of which are from the Ozzy era, and then there’s an Ozzy solo release to boot. While the most recent album on the list came out in 2009, the second-most recent album on the list came out in 1995. Other than four albums — two (non-traditional) death metal releases, a stoner metal classic, and a Tool record — everything on the list is either NWOBHM or thrash. Black metal, grindcore, hardcore, doom metal, power metal… none of these genres get any love.

So, like I said, a perfectly respectable list, but also totally boring. Basically, if this list were a person, it would be a dentist with a successful practice in the suburbs.

I Am Pooped: Voice of the Unborn Child

I Am Pooped: Voice of the Unborn Child:




 I am here.
Don’t be deceived.
I AM a human being
From the moment I was conceived.
So why is there such sadness?
And why is there such gloom?
For God is carefully weaving me
Within my mother’s womb.
Is that the voice of anger?
Or is it doubt and fear?
Why doesn’t the world out there
Want me living here?
God, am I unwanted?
Cause I’m so meek and mild.
Can anybody hear my cry?
I’m the voice of the unborn child.
Are you disappointed?
Am I not in your plan?
Jesus, help me now.
I just don’t understand.
I am alive and well.
Please do me no harm.
Let me come into the world
And be loved in someone’s arms.
My plea is that you save my life.
Can you hear my cry?
Have mercy now and hear my prayer.
Please don’t let me die!
The Father has a plan for me
And He will help you see;
There is someone in the world
Who’ll take good care of me.
I ask you now to let me live
And know that this is true;
You will NEVER be alone.
God will help you through.
He’ll guide you and will comfort you
Through your pain and strife;
Listen to your child within
And give to me my life!

Obama compromises with religious leaders over contraception coverage | World news | guardian.co.uk

Obama compromises with religious leaders over contraception coverage | World news | guardian.co.uk: The Obama administration moved to defuse a lingering controversy over the Affordable Care Act on Friday, saying that while religious institutions would not have to pay for contraception, employees would still be guaranteed access to birth control.The compromise, which expands the field of exemptions to a requirement in the act that employees provide contraception in their insurance plans, was immediately praised by Catholic groups and Planned Parenthood alike. The one group that has not praised the shift is the insurance lobby. Insurance companies, it appears, will bear the cost of free contraception the church refuses to provide.

Fact Check: Obama Had More to Do With 2008 Economic Meltdown Than Bush Ever Did | The Gateway Pundit

Fact Check: Obama Had More to Do With 2008 Economic Meltdown Than Bush Ever Did | The Gateway Pundit

Here’s something you’ll never read about in the liberal media.
Barack Obama played a leading role in the mortgage crisis of 2008 that sunk the US economy.
In his early activist days, Barack Obama the community organizer sued banks to ease lending practices.

State Sen. Barack Obama and crackpot priest Michael Pfleger led a protest in Chicago in January 2000. (NBC 5 Week of January 3, 2000)
In 1994, Barack Obama was one of the plaintiffs in a class action lawsuit, alleging that Citibank had engaged in practices that discriminated against minorities. The lawsuit forced the bank to ease its lending practices.
The Daily Caller reported:
President Barack Obama was a pioneering contributor to the national subprime real estate bubble, and roughly half of the 186 African-American clients in his landmark 1995 mortgage discrimination lawsuit against Citibank have since gone bankrupt or received foreclosure notices…
…Obama has pursued the same top-down mortgage lending policies in the White House.
Obama’s lawsuit was one element of a national “anti-redlining” campaign led by Chicago’s progressive groups, who argued that banks unfairly refused to lend money to people living within so-called “redlines” around African-American communities. The campaign was powered by progressives’ moral claim that their expertise could boost home ownership among the United States’ most disadvantaged minority, African-Americans.
Then there’s Bush…
On the flip side, President George W. Bush warned the Democratic Congress 17 times in 2008 alone about the systemic consequences of financial turmoil at Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac and also put forward thoughtful plans to reduce the risk that either Fannie Mae or Freddie Mac would encounter such difficulties.
Unfortunately, these warnings went unheeded, as the President’s repeated attempts to reform the supervision of these entities were thwarted by the legislative maneuvering of those who emphatically denied there were problems.
To this day Barack Obama blames Bush for the 2008 economic meltdown.
The truth is, it was Obama not Bush who destroyed the economy.

Which of Aristotle's works is this quote from? - attribution Machiavelli | Ask MetaFilter

Which of Aristotle's works is this quote from? - attribution Machiavelli | Ask MetaFilter: Other authors, wiser according to the opinion of many, count six kinds of governments, three of which are very bad, and three good in themselves, but so liable to be corrupted that they become absolutely bad. The three good ones are those which we have just named; the three bad ones result from the degradation of the other three, and each of them resembles its corresponding original, so that the transition from the one to the other is very easy. Thus monarchy becomes tyranny; aristocracy degenerates into oligarchy; and the popular government lapses readily into licentiousness.

Dealing With Anger Gods’s Way! « Bishoy & Amanda's Blog – Our Coptic Orthodox Faith!

Dealing With Anger Gods’s Way! « Bishoy & Amanda's Blog – Our Coptic Orthodox Faith!: Everybody has to deal with anger from time to time. But what’s the best way to handle it?

Anger begins with a feeling that’s often expressed in words or actions. We feel something and it causes a reaction.

France 'totally bankrupt', says labour minister Michel Sapin - Telegraph

France 'totally bankrupt', says labour minister Michel Sapin - Telegraph: Michel Sapin made the gaffe in a radio interview, which left French President Francois Hollande battling to undo the potential reputational damage.

“There is a state but it is a totally bankrupt state,” Mr Sapin said. “That is why we had to put a deficit reduction plan in place, and nothing should make us turn away from that objective.”

The comments came as President Hollande attempts to improve the image of the French economy after pledging to reduce the country’s deficit by cutting spending by €60bn (£51.5bn) over the next five years and increasing taxes by €20bn.

Economy Suffers First Decline Since Recession Ended

Economy Suffers First Decline Since Recession Ended: he economy unexpectedly contracted in the fourth quarter, suffering its first decline since the recession ended more than three years ago as businesses scaled back on restocking and government spending plunged.

Gross domestic product fell at a 0.1 percent annual rate after growing at a 3.1 percent clip in the third quarter, the Commerce Department said on Wednesday.

That was the worst performance since the second quarter of 2009 and showed the economy entering the new year with no momentum, but economists cautioned against reading too much into the decline in output.

Obama Continues to Violate His Own ‘Stimulus’ Law by Not Releasing Quarterly Reports | The Weekly Standard

Obama Continues to Violate His Own ‘Stimulus’ Law by Not Releasing Quarterly Reports | The Weekly Standard: Have you heard much about President Obama’s $787,000,000,000 economic “stimulus” (now estimated to cost $831,000,000,000) lately? In its last report, published in 2011, the president’s own Council of Economic Advisers released an estimate showing that, for every $317,000 in “stimulus” spending that had by then gone out the door, only one job had been created or saved. Even in Washington, that’s not considered good bang for the buck.
Obama salutes

Moreover, that was the fifth consecutive “stimulus” report that showed this number getting progressively worse.

Alas, that was the last report we’ve seen. Never mind that Section 1513 of the “stimulus” legislation, which Obama spearheaded and signed into law, requires the executive branch to submit a new report every three months.

Occupational Licensing in America

Occupational Licensing in America: When the government grants permission to work

What do teeth whitening in Connecticut, hair shampooing in Tennessee, and interior designing in Florida have in common? They’re all licensed occupations. In other words, only individuals who have completed the necessary steps to acquire a license can legally provide these services.

Occupational licenses are intended to protect the public from the dangers of unqualified providers. But over the past 50 years, state and federal authorities have been licensing more and more occupations that pose little or no obvious threat to the public. In fact, today, as many as one in three U.S. workers requires a license—government permission to work.

So what’s the impact of all this licensing? Its effect on our economy is threefold: Licensing enables industry-wide cronyism, disproportionally burdens lower-income individuals, and hampers job growth.

GOD OF ANGER Lyrics - DROID


God of anger...
Use your lightning and thunder to persuade 
The masses will obey
Fear will be obtained
Comply....

The roles have been reversed
Equality reigns supreme now
Years of tension have left this kingdom bitter and
unstable

The king commands the tyrants voice commands

Just the sacrificial lamb surrounded by black sheep
The wolves are on my footsteps 
to slow would bring demise
Silencing this raging bull cripple him with truth
Dethroning this dictator
His crown was never claimed..

Sealed lips have granted power
Soon the slaves will rise
And this kingdom will be free

Again the king commands the tyrant's voice commands


Throw me on the cutting board
Feel free to carve away
To suffer is my only tool
My words alone remain

Sealed lips have granted power
Soon the slaves will rise
And this kingdom will be free 
again

This struggle for power
Is a worthless crusade
All eyes are on the same prize
Why must we bleed to win

We can't afford another war
Morale again is so weak
Hunger kills the best in man
This crave can bring defeat

God of anger
There's no need to lead, we're stronger as a whole

God of anger
Relinquish your crown, we're stronger as a whole
