Odd Bit Of News

Don't Be Poor:
In Madison County, Tennessee a woman is charged with "doctor shopping".  Tammy Marie Dunagan was going to multiple doctors under a 30 day period and using TennCare as payment.  She obtained prescriptions for the powerful pain relievers oxycodone and hydrocodone.   Because she used TennCare to pay for office visits she will be charged with a Class E felony.  Had Mrs. Dunagan been a popular Conservative radio announcer making 50 million a year, she would be spending the next few months in a country club atmosphere being treated for a White Collar Dependency and revealing her underlying psychological issues stemming from ineffectual nurturing.  However, being a person of lesser income, Mrs. Dunagan will be labeled a lowly drug addict and will be spending the next two years in a Tennessee State Penitentiary. This is a painful reminder to us all, “Don’t be poor.”

You Get What You Deserve:
One of the scariest pieces of news today was a man died in Texas while he was raping an elderly woman.  He rolled over in the midst of the attack and according to reports, died mysteriously.  There was nothing mysterious about it.  It’s referred to in biblical terms as the wrath of God.  It’s was the Almighty’s way of saying, “You will not be needing a lawyer today.”

God Hates Cheaters:
Another proof a God’s wrath is the game between the Bruins and the Canucks last night.  It’s no secret that the Canucks were beaten like a rented mule.  Their most powerful weapon of lying on top of the opponent’s goalie is forcing the hand of the Alpha and the Omega.  I.E., cheaters never prosper.  The Canucks should be aware of this dilemma as the Bible clearly states that the Lord “has wiped out many nations, devastating their fortress walls and tower,” so my guess is he will have no problem handling a hockey team.  Maybe next year, the Canucks will put on their thinking caps and play fair.

Harsh Irony:
On Monday in Long Beach, California, a 780 year old statue of St. Anthony was put on display at the local Catholic Church.  The Rev. Jose Magana said he decided to bring out the relic because many of his parishioners have lost hope in the harsh economy.   During Mass, however, Rev. Magana turned to find that someone had helped themselves to the Patron Saint of Lost Causes made of gold and silver. The person who took the relic has clearly misunderstood the message, therefore the .65 billion practicing Roman Catholics in the Northern Hemisphere have descended upon the city of Long Beach determined to clarify God’s message with dozens of police dogs and 780 million baseball bats.  Irony is never lost on good Catholics.
