House Armed Services Committee Busy Debating Whether Old Testament Is Or Is Not In The Bible

News

Oh, gays, why are you forcing all these legislators towaste time attacking you when there are issues of significance to attend to? Latest? Oh, just the House Armed Services Committee taking time out of its important work of mandating $5 billion for a missile defense system on the East Coast that the Pentagon says it does not want, in order to do the more important work of making sure all you filthy Don't Ask Don't Tellers can't have "marriage-like ceremonies" on military bases, and that military chaplains can scream and thunder at your abominationable ways. Which brings us, of course, to the Bible. What is in it? Most people would say "The Old Testament and the New Testament." (Some people would natter on for a while about the Gnostic Gospels or whatever.) But that is not what some dude from Georgia thinks!


In an odd exchange, Rep. Loretta Sanchez, D-Calif., questioned what would happen if a service member literally interpreted the Old Testament's Leviticus, which considers homosexuality an abomination. Rep. Austin Scott, R-Ga., disputed her contention that was part of the Bible, saying it was the Old Testament.

All righty then, that is that! So now let us move on to the less important matter of this missile defense site on the East Coast!

Since the mid-1980s, the Pentagon has spent nearly $150 billion on missile defense programs and envisions another $44 billion over the next five years. But it is not looking to construct a facility on the East Coast.

Gen. Charles Jacoby, the head of U.S. Northern Command and North American Aerospace Defense Command, told Congress earlier this year, "Today's threats do not require an East Coast missile field, and we do not have plans to do so."

[...]

Lt. Gen. Patrick J. O'Reilly, the head of the U.S. missile defense program, told Congress recently that North Korea lacks the testing for a capable system and has made little progress in its spaceflight program.

Nevertheless, the committee envisions construction of the site by the end of 2015, with the Pentagon deciding on a possible location. The bill includes $100 million to study three potential sites.

$100 million for site-study! That is almost three times as much as planning for that stupid and terrible GSA retreat! We hope they will at least comp some tickets to see Cher. [AP]

No pressure in November, but looks like the Supreme Court is going to do FUCK ALL about gerrymandering this term. In a unanimous decision authored by Chief Justice Roberts, the Court remanded the landmark Gill v. Whitford redistricting case on standing -- in other words, they won't be ruling on it because the plaintiffs challenging the gerrymander hadn't adequately proved that they personally had the right to challenge Wisconsin's preposterous districts.

We have been hearing ever since late last week that Michael Cohen is probably about to be arrested and probably going to be indicted on one million charges and probably maybe might be about to try to flip and make a deal so that he doesn't end up in prison for the rest of his natural life. In fact, we have been hanging our hopes on it, because everything else sucks. Sure, we are still filled with joy over how Paul Manafort is on day four of JAIL, MOTHERFUCKER, JAIL, but then we remembered what is happening on the border and what we are saying right now is we need something happy.
