Pope Francis fires "Bishop of Bling" for abusing funds, converts Archbishop's $40 million mansion to soup kitchen.
Bishop Tebartz-van Elst resided in the diocese of Limburg, home to about 650,000 Catholics in Germany. The bishop made news when the Catholic Church disclosed the exact cost of the renovations to his personal residence – improvements that had skyrocketed to more than eight times the original projections"...$40 million!
"Pope Francis immediately took back his strong hand and smacked the archbishop right out of his golden ember diocese and into the land of reality."
This pope is so refreshing! However, it does make one wonder why we are allowing the Catholic church access to U.S. taxpayer dollars.

Where does a Bishop get $40 million? What a disgrace. This Pope is phenomenal.
But I do think all churches should pay taxes. They are running a business.

Not more secure.
Well'a, lets'a explore your premise for a minute'a. "We have the right to be secure," right? Its'a right, right? So whats'a that mean...'secure?' Wheres'a the line between 'more secure' and 'SECURE?' I gotta admit'a, I been watchin' yous'a clown in here and I'm'a thinkin' it's in your minds. And I specifically mean, "your" minds because's you obviously don't think it's'a in ours, right? In other'a words, your SECURITY is'a important, but 'our's' isn't. Right? You with'a me so far? Hows'a that gonna work, paisan?

Yous see, SECURITY to me, is'a protection from'a you. You get it? You see a bogeyman behind every Muslim bush, a terrorist behind every beard, a criminal behind every dark face, a sponger behind every welfare check... Me... I see it different. I see YOU as the threat, the rest of those things I can'a handle without your "help."

In order to create what YOU define as SECURITY you bankrupt'a the country! You reduce'a america to a mere contractor for china, AND THEN YOU WANT TO SEND MORE WEAPONS TO THE SOUTH CHINA SEA TO PROTECT (YOU) FROM THE CHINEE!!!! Its'a kinda tough to worry about your perception of SECURE when you keep'a wantin' to toss out mine. Capisce?

LOS ANGELES -- The Los Angeles County coroner's office has ruled that conservative blogger and commentator Andrew Breitbart died of heart failure stemming from coronary disease.

Coroner spokesman Craig Harvey said Friday that a negligible amount of alcohol was found in Breitbart's system but no prescription or illicit drugs.

Harvey says foul play is not suspected and the case has been closed.

Breitbart, 43, died March 2 at Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center after collapsing as he was walking his dog near his Brentwood home.

Not really but some modular homes. But most are good ole free framed houses. But it's hard to tell the difference now a days.
