Oh, this is a national tragedy.

I know when I woke up this morning and read this, I thought "Oh, My God! What will we do with no Chuck Colson to help guide our country! Who will think of the Children, and Apple Pie, and Baseball!" I felt like i should immediately go to church and pray to our one, true Christian God - whom this nation was founded upon, for his eternal reward in heaven!

I got to meet Mitchell in the mid 80s, just before he died.

I keep on thinking that these guys were victims of their time - had the same set of things happened last year or five years ago not one damn thing would have happened to them. They'd never have seen a subpoena or a courtroom.

But thanks to them, the last generation of lawmakers have sufficiently eroded any enforcement capability we ever had so that the ruling class will never experience such a tragedy again. Those men were martyrs.

This, sadly.

I've never actually cheered the death of any man, but I came really, really close for this one. Not only was he a farking traitor, but when caught he discovered Jesus. That's always the last refuge of the amoral.

Horse hockey. These guys were "victims" only of their own unquenchable lust for power and their complete lack of scruples. Their behavior was beyond the pale in any time.

So, the dawg became a christer. In this country all your transgressions are forgiven once Jesus, not the mexican who cuts the lawn, forgives you.

How do you know?

You go to church!

Chuckie's "On Faith" dispatches as the Washington Post. I remember tangling with him a bit on his blog there. Pretty much an asshole, although there are still morally worse bloggers there.

I'm sure it was guys like Chuck Colson who inspired a young George Lucas into making an evil religious order strongly tied to the government in the first place.

fta: Colson never left the political scene, consistently advocating on behalf of conservative policies. He opposed abortion and same-sex marriage and supported the Iraq war. In 2008, President George W. Bush gave Colson the Presidential Citizens Medal.

Wrong to the end.

RIP, Hatchet man.

Not sure if serious, or truly idiotic. Clinton got impeached for a blowjob, imagine if he ordered a break-in of the RNC offices.

Certainly that's the case if they were climate scientists. Then they'd have teh backing and encouragement of FARK libtards and other climate scientists for their break-ins and FOIA evasions.

I was one of the several bartenders this buttery assy-smelling pebble of a man liked to consider a friend come a Thursday night, dragging his half-assed loudmouthed wife everywhere. He stared at me through amphibian lenses and drank himself into a deeper stupor than the strange parakeet he pretended to enjoy rubbing his flaccid prison dick on. Meanwhile, she liked to pretend that nobody under 50 knew that she was goldigging on a broke ass petty criminal.

Dying at 80?

As per Wiki: "In 2008, Colson was presented with the Presidential Citizens Medal by President George W. Bush."

Why am I not surprised?

Prior to the start of his prison sentence, Colson became a born-again Christian. After his release from an Alabama prison, Colson founded Prison Fellowship, a nonprofit organization that conducts outreach to prisoners to "seek the transformation of prisoners... through the power and truth of Jesus Christ."

According to his bio for Prison Fellowship, Colson formed the idea of Prison Fellowship when a fellow inmate told him "there ain't nobody cares about us. Nobody!" Colson started the organization and ran it for 33 years.


2 Corinthians 5.17 Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come: The old has gone, the new is here! 18 All this is from God, who reconciled us to himself through Christ and gave us the ministry of reconciliation: 19 that God was reconciling the world to himself in Christ, not counting people's sins against them. And he has committed to us the message of reconciliation.
