    Now if only Obamessiah could figure how to do the same thing as Gould on a nationwide scale…….

    Looks more like Charlie Manson than Jesus on that receipt in the last link.

    Gould, Arkansas city council attempts to ban a civic organization from existence.

    In all fairness, if most NGOs were shutdown and their staff had to get productive, private sector jobs instead of being professional do-gooders, it would be a net positive for liberty.

    If you have to put heat on the Wal-mart receipt to get the black ink perhaps it was “the devil”

    Interesting. Reminds me of a related story I was gonna
    cite, but now I can’t remember…

    Shit! Can’t fool me, that is Bin Laden in the receipt!

    I knew he was hanging out with Elvis, Lennon, Morrison, Hendrix, and Hoffa at the Walmart.

    “The City Council, unhappy about a civic betterment group, the Gould Citizens Advisory Council, apparently has adopted an ordinance “disallowing” the organization from existing and further declaring “no new organization” can be formed in Gould without council approval.”

    Didn’t we all learn a lesson from Harry Potter…?

    #2 – Scooby, I thought the same thing! That’s Manson.

    Odd, I clearly thought it was Ian Anderson of Jethro Tull.

    That Greenwald story is a great reference story as well since people are always asking for proof that the media is turning into a government propaganda organ. As usual Greenwald nailed it.

    Handcuffed man, breaks window with head, escapes police car and throws himself off bridge.

    Let me guess. The cops were the only witnesses, right?

    Dave that sounds kind of like the guy in the niddle ages in Scotland who was boofing the King’s wife and was found with over a hundred stab wounds in his back. The Officials who investigated called it the worst case of suicide they’d ever seen.

    I also thought the image looked like Manson, before even reading these comments. Just check the real Manson pic here:

    Poppy seeds falsely flagged as opiates in blood test. Newborn removed from mother.

    #15 H. Rearden

    Poppy seeds falsely flagged as opiates in blood test. Newborn removed from mother.

    Somewhere someone is thinking, “We should outlaw poppy seeds. We’ll take that on right after we pass Caylee’s Law.”

    Jesus has the crazy eyes.

    But it’s more of a human looking face than most Jesus on toast/water stain/dog’s butt.

    But it’s more of a human looking face than most Jesus on ….dog’s butt.

    I am just laughing at the thought of some devotee kissing that image.

    I sent Jesus an email earlier and he just got back to me; he says it wasn’t him, but rather Elijah.

    Just thought y’all might like to know.

    Re: google story

    1. Didn’t books and later libraries have a similar effect – we didn’t have to remember the info any more

    More hand wringing over the new technology. Total bs

    @ #6:

    I also think it looks like bin Laden.

  23. #23 |  Mike Healy | 

    You guys are all wrong – it’s plainly Blackbeard on that receipt. Shiver me timbers if it ain’t.

  24. #24 |  Lefty | 

    I think the receipt looks a bit like Charlie Manson.

    Here’s the best case of this kind of xian superstition I’ve heard recently:

  25. #25 |  Lefty | 

    I love the cognitive dissonance from the xian receipt couple. They think an all powerful supernatural being put his face on their shopping receipt but they’d also like it to be scientifically tested to find out how it got there.

    And here I thought it was Che, sans beret.
