From Tom’s Reading List

Bergen Record: GWB probe targets Christie’s office; renewal of subpoena power expected — “The George Washington Bridge lane-closure investigation could reach into Governor Christie’s office as early as Monday when a new round of subpoenas is expected to land on the desks of key members of Christie’s inner circle, a Democratic legislator leading the probe said on Saturday. Assemblyman John Wisniewski said he plans to issue subpoenas demanding documents from the governor’s former deputy chief of staff Bridget Anne Kelly and spokesman Michael Drewniak, along with other aides whose names surfaced last week in documents related to the lane closures in early September.”

NPR:  Beyond The Bridge, Christie Faces Questions About Sandy Funds — “There’s good news and bad news in the poll. A third of New Jerseyans think that Christie himself was involved in the decision to close the toll lanes, which caused the traffic jam – it’s only a third. But two-thirds do not accept the governor’s timeline about when he found out about the political retribution involved in this traffic scandal. And so there’s some mixed numbers here. It’s a great for the governor but it certainly could be worse.”

BuzzFeed: Why Conservatives Aren’t Rushing To Chris Christie’s Defense – “Christie has been at odds with his party’s right wing ever since the final days of the 2012 campaign, when many on the right believe he abandoned his efforts to elect Mitt Romney in pursuit of his own image as a champion of bipartisanship — embracing President Obama, often literally, in a series of widely publicized photos and interviews in the aftermath of Superstorm Sandy. He went on to stake out decidedly centrist positions on a number of issues during his reelection campaign, and when he won in a landslide, he lectured the rest of the GOP about why they should follow his lead.”

Mondo Diablo Episode 291: Fundie Fantasy

To start the New Year off right, I had to start it with fstdt.com . Fundies say the Darndest Things. This episode is all about Teh Gays, because DADT was FINALLY repealed, and the fundies are all OVER that shit. This has implications. Fundies have traditionally been pro-military: My Country: Love it or Leave It. So, maybe they'll leave, or maybe they'll stop supporting the military, or maybe, JUST MAYBE, they'll start ignoring the gays? Or are they simple sports fans, supporting the team that DOESN'T acknowledge an Out player? Whatever they do, they're screwed, and I couldn't be happier. On that note, on most blogs, I included the full addresses of the conversations, so that maybe I'll have some of those people coming in here, complaining that I've misrepresented them in some way. Maybe I can ask them a few questions.

Mondo Diablo Episode 264: A Fundie Fracas!

Darwinism has long ago been shown to be pure mythology. It's only supporters are the phoney profs that use it as a vehicle for dumbing down the naive student population and applying for federal grants, AND gullible followers. Tell me, when's the last time you saw a half man-half ape OR a half man-half fish? You suggest: Tell the truth and people can decide. It seems to me people are deciding and the darwinist "groupies" view this independent thought as encroachment on their turf. Since they cannot bear detailed scrutiny, they make haste to silence the opposition. kimosabe31, Free Republic Do you know since God gave us , cows, pigs, chicken and goat domisticated 6000 years before and yet no scientitits made a domisticated animal up to now? That's why we should thank our Lord. Thomas, Yahoo Answers
