Kansas City Face Palm Sunday News Links

For those who don't know or have forgotten:

Palm Sunday is a Christian moveable feast that falls on the Sunday before Easter. The feast commemorates Jesus' triumphal entry into Jerusalem, an event mentioned in each of the four canonical Gospels.

In most liturgical churches Palm Sunday is celebrated by the blessing and distribution of palm branches or the branches of other native trees representing the palm branches the crowd scattered in front of Christ as he rode into Jerusalem.

Forgive our snarky mention by way of realizing that most MSM avoid mentioning any Western faith out of fear for advertisers.

Now here are more than a few local links that we're checking right now . . .

Damn. Can't our local media at least be more creative and spin us a whole new set of deceptions and distractions to keep us anesthetized?

Byron you ignorant asshole, Palm Sunday didn't happen in this country it happened in the city of Jerusalem. So they have many different palm trees and it isn't explained which palm leaves were used.

As for the date I'm not going to do the whole write up it would take to show what an idiot your are and how the date of Palm and Easter Sunday come about. It entails many things that your narrow mind wouldn't be able to comprehend.

We know you hate God and every other living thing in the world and that is fine with me. So since you do hate so much and we all know it why not just you and the wife hate on one another and leave the rest of us sane folks from having to see your spoken or posted hateful garbage.

Six pedestrians hit by reckless drivers in a one-week period, three of them have died, including a 14-year-old girl. It's a shooting or stabbing, but these people were killed and lives are still affected.

I take it that the "insurance snafu" was he didn't pay his premium and so lost coverage. Hey here's a great idea: how about we let people buy health insurance after they get sick, so they don't have to use up all their Democrat donation money on premiums when they don't need care? And why should anybody have to buy auto insurance before they have a wreck, or pick Powerball numbers before they are drawn?
