**BREAKING** ‘This is not one nation under God’: House stenographer taken from the floor after bizarre outburst
[quote]He will not be mocked. He will not be mocked. The greatest deception here is this is not one nation under God. It never was. It never was. Had it been, it would not have been — the Constitution would not have been written by Freemasons. They go against God. You cannot serve two masters. You cannot serve two masters. Praise be to God, lord Jesus Christ.

The updates to that post are the best part!
Update, 11:17 p.m. EST: The Associated Press reported that the woman made her way to the rostrum during the House vote on an agreement to end the government shutdown. Rep. Julian Castro (D-CA) reportedly told the AP the woman had a “crazed look on her face.” She was described as a longtime employee of the House.
Update, 11:49 p.m. EST: The Atlantic identified the woman as Dianne Reidy. Also, Fox News congressional correspondent Chad Pergram reported that, after being interviewed by Capitol police, Reidy was taken to a local hospital for a mental evaluation.
It's fun watching white conservatives slowly lose their shit as they see brown people and homos taking over the world.
So now even the support staff on Capitol Hill are batshit fundies.
I'm devastated there are no reports of guillotines being constructed on the mall. Surely these crazies would be happier going beneath the blade than watching their "Tara" burn to the ground with all their jewels and corsets being transformed into ash.
There's Something Wrong with Aunt Dianne
That's soon "Dianne Reidy, Fox 'News' Commentator.'
What kind of health insurance does she have?
was it Millie?
Gargoyles! Psychics! Everything's Ungodly! Dork-sided! In Jesus's Name I Pray!
She was totally normal and healthy. This was a normal response to what has been happening in D.C. over the last 2 weeks. Watch the news now and then.
Can you imagine the horror? Seriously. It's been disgusting for those of you who have been too busy watching Real Housewives.
I did not approve that message. I wished my believers would just run things pass me first. Gawd!
Fuck this idiot fundie asshole. Another site I read was all, "poor woman, how dare we make fun of or criticize the mentally ill". Please. These types choose their own delusions. She and her wacko husband are basking in the attention. What is it with this country that it is chock full of these willfully stupid cave dwelling morons?
Oh jeez. I hadn't heard the latest. She sent an explanatory e-mail to Fox.
[quote]She was totally normal and healthy.
So she had had a post-partum depression after the birth of her twins. She had been waking up during the middle of the night for four weeks to read the bible saying she had been awakened by the holy spirit and spoken to. It sounds like a hypomanic episode with religious delusions. Yet most, or a least a substantial amount, of the commentary I've read says it's an insult to invoke mental illness to explain what she did (seeing how it's perfectly justified and everything). A substantial number of people really believe it's a message from god. SMH.
Ted Cruz claimed his latest victim.
She doesn't know anything about the Freemasons, does she?
All religious people are mentally ill. Think of this as the equivalent of a herpes flareup.
She had to have been a fundie before her epuside and the slept deprivation and post partum caused the outburst .
I love you, R11.
I think the stenographer got the cup of coffee someone meant for Boehner. Oh well.
The most disturbing aspect of this story is that her husband, A MAN OF CHRIST FOR CHRIST'S SAKE, said the following:
“If she had told me, ‘I think God wants me to get up and say something,’ I’d be the first one to say, ‘No you don’t!’”
So he would've told his wife to DISOBEY GOD!
The blasphemy! The sacrilege!
*clutches rosary beads*
"Oh my God. I'm back. I'm home. All the time, it was... We finally really did it ... You Maniacs! You blew it up! Ah, damn you! God damn you all to hell!"
We are switching to the new platform for The DataLounge this weekend. All of our mobile users have been using it for over a week and all first time users have been using it for about a month - which adds up to well over one million users. So we're ready to end this phase of the testing and move everybody to the new site. (more)
And yes, we've changed the look and some of how it operates.
Yes, we know you just *hate* it in well in advance.
Yes, we know we suck.
Yes, we are the biggest suckers that ever sucked.
But it was time for a change and with the huge shift to mobile it was long overdue. We've taken this opportunity not only to update the look but also make major changes under the hood (or "bonnet" if you're either British or pretentious or both). And we have to prepare for 2016 - a presidential election year where we can normally expect to see a 60% jump in traffic (yes, we've seen 5 presidential elections so far…Christ we're old).
The site has a bunch - nay, plethora - of new features which will make the site more usable: better search, the ability to ignore posters and threads, see link previews, to pick up a thread where you left off, spam and malware filtering and more.
If you want you can go explore and see for yourself, Click here.
And while running the tests we've noticed two interesting reactions to the new system - people are spending more time on the site and more people that come stay around longer and look at more stuff. Both good things. Yay!
Possibly we've not slain all the dragons and there will be issues that come up during the switchover. There's a help button in the lower right hand corner of the page which you can use to send us bug reports.
Please include as much information about the hardware (PC, Mac, Tablet, Phone etc), operating system (Windows, Mac OS, Android, iOS etc) and browser (Chrome, Safari, Opera, Internet Explorer etc) that you are using as possible to help us replicate and fix the problem.
Please note that complaints about colors, fonts, icons and the like are not "bugs" - they are design choices that we've made and we expect one or two cases of world-class bitching. But they won't actually cause headaches, scurvy, heart attacks, Restless Leg Syndrome, Morgellon's Disease or the vapors (but have your smelling salts at hand just in case).
Talking to DataLounge servers. Please wait a moment...
