Happy Birthday Pope Francis
As one might expect, Pope Francis has been the target of conservatards for his (accurate) remarks about capitalism, particularly the laissez-faire capitalism practiced in the U.S., which has wrought destruction and misery for so many on a global basis. Not to mention the ongoing ruination of the planet. People like Rush Limp-bough, who wouldn't know Christ-like actions if they fell on his ginormous pumpkin head, has been particularly nasty and critical. He's feeling defensive because the sacred doctrine of wingnuts, piddle-down economics, has been criticized by the Pope. But Rush, whose only religion is selfishness and greed, is hardly in a position to criticize anyone for anything. Naturally, this does not stop him.
Meanwhile, in other news, the molten magma pool under Yellowstone has been found to be more than 2 and a half times bigger than previously thought. Meaning that when this bad boy erupts, it will be with a force at least 2,000 times greater than Mount Saint Helen. There is no way to determine when it will erupt, meaning it will be one nasty surprise when it does, and will impact the global environment while it destroys a chunk of the Western U.S. Many scientists believe an earthquake there is far more likely than a volcanic eruption. But they can't predict that either, and the truth is they don't know diddly about what will actually happen.
