  1. "The Bigger Government Gets, the Smaller God Gets"

    Will God eventually get small enough that we can drown it in the bathtub?

    Beck: in casual conversation somebody said, did you hear the earth moved off its axis?

    No, because not only did that not happen, it doesn't even mean anything.

    Nice to see that "Biblical capitalism" explicitly uses Bible verses about slavery to delineate workers' rights. "Anti-union" doesn't begin to describe it.

  2. They're getting crazier every day.

  3. Buffy -- Ain't that the truth.

    Infidel753 -- Probably. The Religious Right's god is small, as he is a reflection of their small-mindedness.

  4. The irony of DeMint's comments knows no bounds. One thing that strikes me is that nothing makes governments bigger than war.

  5. Libhom -- And I imagine the irony is completely lost on DeMint.
