  •  New definition of "temper tantrum": doing a Robert (0+ / 0-)

    Murray (the fine coal dictator who made his employees attend a Romney rally and then had it cost them a day's pay):

    From Taegan Goddard:
    The CEO of Murray Energy, an Ohio-based coal company, said the reelection of President Obama "was no cause for celebration. It was a time for prayer - and layoffs," the Washington Post reports.

     Robert Murray read a prayer to a group of company staff members on the day after the election, lamenting the direction of the country and asking: "Lord, please forgive me and anyone with me in Murray Energy Corp. for the decisions that we are now forced to make to preserve the very existence of any of the enterprises that you have helped us build."

    Murray obviously directed his prayer in the wrong direction, although I imagine Futurama's Robot Santa Claus or Robot Satan would reject him.

    "A young man who wishes to remain a sound Atheist cannot be too careful of his reading. There are traps everywhere ". C. S. Lewis
