By now I am sure you have heard the surprising news that Pope Benedict is stepping down from the Papacy. Who will the next Pope be?

How about a little tin foil fun?
The Prophecy of the Popes, attributed to Saint Malachy, is a list of 112 short phrases in Latin. They purport to describe each of the Roman Catholic popes (along with a few anti-popes), beginning with Pope Celestine II (elected in 1143) and concluding with the successor of current pope Benedict XVI, a pope described in the prophecy as "Peter the Roman", whose pontificate will end in the destruction of the city of Rome.
This is hugh!!!1! I'm serial!

I'll stop.

It is really amazing to think that this is the first pope to step down or leave the position in over 600 years. I'm not Catholic, nor am I generally a religious sort, but I do understand that this is significant to many people around the world. I myself will play Seer and Revelator and make an announcement: We shall enter time of uncertainty; There will be much ponderance among the lands; Foil, chicanery and illuminati shall sprinkle into your days; The one known as Alexander (sic. jones) will proclaim that a brown skinned leader will come to remove the Papel seat and melt all the swords into plowshares; After the day of rising, estrogens will rain from the sky freely and bountiful.

Personally, I blame it on twitter.

Ok, I'll really stop this time.

Pope Benedict XVI is resigning, basically saying that he is too old and too tired.
The conclave of cardinals that will choose the next pope is expected to convene in mid-March. Analysts immediately began predicting a turbulent debate between reformers and conservatives.

In keeping with his reputation as a traditionalist, Pope Benedict made his extraordinary announcement in Latin, to a private gathering of cardinals inside Vatican City. The news was then transmitted via official Vatican media, with Benedict citing his age and failing health as the key factors in his decision.

“I have had to recognize my incapacity to adequately fulfill the ministry entrusted to me,” Benedict said. “For this reason, and well aware of the seriousness of this act, with full freedom I declare that I renounce the ministry of Bishop of Rome, Successor of Saint Peter.”
All joking aside I am quite sure this will become a very speculative story. That it is happening during Lent and before the high holy day of Easter is interesting timing.


That is all I have to say about that... for now.

He could be a cardinal, but not a bishop. Bishops need to be priests, priests can't be married. This won't stop him!

So can we say that the Pope is EggsitBenedict?

Comment by TriSec on 02/11/2013 14:36:10
Keep your eye on Cardinal Law (formerly of Boston).

He's actually been mentioned a few times as a potential first American Pope.

But of course, he likes little boys, or at least to cover them up. Or something like that.

There's another heart-crushing story about being a Bigoted Scout of America making the rounds. (originally posted on HuffPo.)

I kinda snapped yesterday....have been mulling over quitting the program.

I've been at this 25 years, I can certainly wait another 3 monts to see what National does.

But if it's the wrong decision, I honestly don't know what I'll do.

My advice, stop worrying about National. Make sure your community outreach explains that the local and regional councils have a policy of inclusion.

Liberal talk show host Peter B. Collins has a worrying piece in Truth Out on progressive talk radio;

An Insider's View of the Progressive Talk Radio Devolution
Sunday, 10 February 2013 07:39 By Peter B Collins, Truthout | Op-Ed

As an independent progressive and 40-year radio veteran, I'm sorry to report that heroic efforts over the past ten years to build a national radio presence for progressives and Democrats seem to have reached a critical turning point. With the recent loss of key AM outlets in Portland, Seattle and Detroit, the progressive talk format no longer enjoys national coverage, which in turn threatens the financial viability of the syndicated programs hosted by Stephanie Miller, Thom Hartmann, Ed Schultz, Randi Rhodes, Mike Malloy, Bill Press and Norman Goldman.

Since the rise of Rush Limbaugh and the shift of hundreds of radio stations to wall-to-wall conservative talk in the 1990s, progressives have faced a decidedly uphill battle. In my experience, most station owners and managers have a strong bias to the right, and with a few exceptions, the rest just look for the easiest way to make maximum profit.

It's no accident that Limbaugh was recruited for the heavily market-researched model that was labelled "non-guested confrontation talk radio" after Reagan's Federal Communications Commission (FCC) lifted the Fairness Doctrine in 1987. Clinton's 1996 Telecommunications Act removed ownership limits that led to rapid consolidation and the troublesome concentration of control by national operators we see today. Three companies control almost all of the talk radio stations with competitive signals in the major markets: Clear Channel, CBS and Cumulus.

In my view, we have reached a major crisis due to right-wing bias in talk radio. This right-wing tilt has an obvious impact on our politics and culture. But President Obama, his FCC appointees and most members of Congress - including all but a handful of Democrats - are indifferent. Sadly, it seems that most listeners are indifferent, too.

Thisa part is concerning:
Al Franken is in the Senate, Ed Schultz appears to be doing well on MSNBC, Thom Hartmann has a nightly TV show on the RT network, Bill Press and Stephanie Miller are simulcast on Current TV (which has just been sold to Al Jazeera). But their radio shows face tough sledding and possible elimination in 2013.

Dial Global, the company that syndicates these programs (along with NFL football and a variety of music formats), is in deep financial trouble, and its stock was recently voluntarily delisted from the NASDAQ when the share price dropped below $1. Ironically, the company blames the progressive-driven advertiser boycott in 2012 aimed at Rush Limbaugh for his misogynist comments about attorney and birth-control advocate Sandra Fluke, which appears to have caused many national advertisers to stop advertising on all talk radio programs - both right and left - to avoid controversy.

I know. I think Bill Clinton considers signing TCA one of his biggest mistakes.

Good day, folks. Another day, another crapfest and reminder why I hate winter. Progressive radio had been struggling considering that even in the cities that it's been operating it has been usually on weaker frequencies where even in the blue markets, right-wing talkers are usually on the 50K flamethrowers and here in New York, WWRL is 1000 Watts in daytime and drops to 250 Watts directional at night where it can't even be picked up in Staten Island or east of the Meadowbrook Pkwy on Long Island at night.

The news about progressive talk having problems is not surprising in the least. AM radio itself is dying. Canada has already abandoned it. The FCC selling out to Ibiquity to implement a seriously flawed IBOC system (which is also being abandoned) didn't help. Unless you're one of the major blowtorch stations, your signal becomes worse after dark (not good if it's winter in the north). How many people carry something with them that can receive an AM station (not its audio stream)? Boston's WBZ used to be the undisputed ratings leader not long ago, it has now slipped to 6th. Every electronic device with a switching power supply is an AM jammer.

Not surprising the weakest of the stations are in the worst shape.

Which explains why both of New York's major sports talkers moved to FM in the last year even though they bumped a well-rated KISS-FM and a station that after a failed experiment at news went back to alternative rock and was starting to get numbers again before it flipped to the FAN simulcast. The AM station that carried ESPN is now carrying ESPN Deportes and they are probably just turning around the satellite feed now with just local advertising. Strangely enough, despite the number of stations owned by CBS in New York, they have not put CBS Sports Radio on in New York in order to avoid undercutting FAN.

Same thing in Boston, the two major sports yak stations are now on FM. The AM side of one of them now broadcasts ESPN. I personally can't see tying up a lot of valuable land for ESPN radio.

At least WBZ-AM broadcasts from a salt marsh, no one would want to build anything there.....

If it wasn't for Family Radio selling WFME, New York would still not have a country music station, a format which has been missing from the New York airwaves for almost a decade. And there is no station playing current rock since the last rock station in New York is a classic rocker and besides FAN the only other rock station in NYC went back to top 40, a format that it had abandoned 25 years earlier. Even most of the suburban rock stations are basically classic rockers with one active rocker in New Jersey and a triple-A station in Westchester being the only variations. The one oldies station now mostly plays 70's and 80's tunes and stopped playing anything before the British Invasion in what little 60's music they still play and this was an oldies station that used to be big on the 50's sound and made Sunday nights all Doo-Wop at one point although they did have that failed experiment with the JACK format

Nugent will be a guest of Texas GOP Rep. Steve Stockman, who suggested impeaching the president over gun control last month.

Grrrr.. Facebook is still not loading at all!

I haven't had issues here.

Seems to be an issue between Firefox/Noscript and FB. When I disallow FB in Noscript, everything loads but of course I can't click anything because it's not whitelisted. FB works fine in IE and Chrome tho.

So let me get this right, Nugent threatens the life of the President of the United States, gets a visit from the Secret Service and now some clownhead representative rewards him with a ticket to the SOTU address?


Am I the only who finds this insulting?
