Calling Out Notre Dame’s Hypocrisy?

Just like other Catholics who support family planning, birth control, and/or are pro-choice, I’ve watched with amusement as the blathering idiots like Pat Buchanan and Bill Donohue rage about President Obama speaking at Notre Dame’s commencement.

The Rude Pundit is at it as well.

As bullshit protests begin to build over President Barack Obama’s upcoming speech at the graduation ceremonies of the University of Notre Dame, as the froth is whipped into a rich, thick foam by self-aggrandizing pro-life activists and desperate-for-relevance Catholic bishops, perhaps a bit of history of graduation activities at Notre Dame is in order:


You get the idea here? The Catholic Church: stinking with rank hypocrisy since Peter stood on a rock. And Catholics: the group that really puts the sheep in the flock.

On Chrylser’s Restructuring – 789 Dealerships to Go

This and more from yesterday on Capitol Hill

Laid-off autoworkers and car dealers fighting forced closures were outraged Wednesday to learn that the new Chrysler-Fiat partnership plans to skirt U.S. restrictions on executive pay by having some top Chrysler executives deemed Fiat employees.

From Automotive News:

Chrysler LLC will eliminate 789 dealers, or 25 percent of its U.S. network, by June 9, according to a memo sent today to retailers in one sales region.

Dealers are learning of their fate via UPS letters to be delivered this morning, the memo says.

Dealers will get 23 business days for a “court review” of their cases, according to the memo, from a sales manager to district dealers.


The National Automobile Dealers Association estimates that an average U.S. dealership now employs about 48 people, so an estimated 37,872 people stand to lose their jobs because of Chrysler’s decision today.

Whoa…. and the banks?  What’s going on with the banks?  More money, yeah?
