Heaven’s Tears of Joy

January 31, 2014

I sometimes feel the Internet allows humans too much insight into evil around the world.

Only God’s heart, filled with infinite love can handle the pain and sorrow that ravages this planet moment by moment.

Yet there’s another side to it.

Glimpses into what Heaven will be like couldn’t be more accurately told than in videos of the soldier coming home to his family.

We all have reunions like this in our future…and the good tears are mandatory.

God Is Not Impressed

January 30, 2014

All one need do is watch the Grammy Awards, which I haven’t done in years, to know how morally bankrupt America has become.

Programs like that are a reflection of our society and a window into our appetites as T.V. viewers.

Sure, millions of Americans still follow Christ, and try to preach and live the Gospel, but few could argue that we’re trending in the right direction.

Things our parents and grandparents would’ve found a sacrilege are now treated as “enlightenment.”

Check out Isaiah 5:20, for a brief look at God’s warning.

Woe to those who call evil good, and good evil;
Who substitute darkness for light and light for darkness;
Who substitute bitter for sweet and sweet for bitter!

Did you ever think you’d see the day when Russia would brag about her Christian values, while Churches in America shutter for lack of interest?

The State of the Child’s Address

January 29, 2014

At one  point, I laughed out loud, when the President said:

By raising the minimum wage for workers, businesses would have customers with more money to spend in their stores.

It reminded me of the time we kids on Loumar Dr. held a “carnival” in Dave Rhinehart’s backyard, to make money.

Since no one came but me, the Georges, and the Rhineharts, the same kids who put it on, I ran home to my penny jar and brought back coins for all of us to share.

The President’s perspective on prosperity has very little to do with anyone actually earning something…it’s about taking from someone else.

His idea of “opportunity” means things like, affirmative action, higher taxes, and rigged incomes, so that those with less can have what those with more generated the hard way.

Here’s a suggestion Mr.President, why not redistribute some of that power you’re abusing?

Like the temptation to spy on our text messages, or to have the IRS harass conservatives, or to favor big campaign donors like Solyndra with half billion dollar grants, who then go on to plead the 5th before Congress when they fail.

Stop acting like a child.

Toward the end of your speech, when you introduced us to the wounded warrior in the audience, you started to make sense.

Stick with that theme sir…people who actually make sacrifices is why this country is great…not politicians with a childlike understanding of prosperity, who do favors for their friends.

Naked Bootleg in State of the Union Tonight

January 28, 2014

One of the best plays I ever saw live at an NFL game was by quarterback Steve Grogan.

My brother-in-law Ronnie and I were sitting way to the left at Foxboro Stadium, inside the 5 yard line in the second or third to last row.

Our seats were so high that this trick play seemed to unfold in slow motion before our eyes.

Grogan handed the ball off to his running back and the entire team dove to the right, sucking all the defensive players in.

As the QB rolled left, looking as if he had a limp, he trotted untouched into the end zone, with the ball on his hip where no one but us fans could see it, until of course he raised the ball in the air as he crossed the goal line.

Touchdown!

In sports, that’s a great play…especially when it works.

He later told reporters that no one on the team knew about it but him.

In politics though, going it alone is often a sign of failure.

America is supposed to be a representative republic.

The media is acting as if the President’s plan to go around Congress tonight is a good thing.

Seems more lake a failure to lead in my view.

Get ready for a giant tax increase business community…you’re his enemy and class warfare sucks in the low information fans every time.

The Seagull and the Doves–Obama and the Nuns

January 27, 2014

The two stories are happening simultaneously, half a world apart.

Yet, as the Pontiff and a few children released doves, symbols of peace from a Vatican window, as a sign of hope for Ukraine, two scavenger birds swooped down to spoil the moment.

As we all watched in horror, then delight, the weaker birds escaped.

I for one couldn’t help but think of the Little Sisters of the Poor and two more scavengers of death, Obama and Sebelius, trying to destroy their dream of holiness.

Jesus was very clear when He said in John 16:33:

In me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation. But take heart; I have overcome the world.

Remember too what Christ promised to St. Peter in Matthew 16:18:

And I tell you, you are Peter, and on this rock I will build my church, and the gates of Hell shall not prevail against it.

Keep praying for the weak good people.

Better yet, keep believing that our mighty God cannot allow Truth to die, no matter how strong the army of the Enemy.

The Real Reason Behind NSA Data Debacle

January 26, 2014

Listen good people…none of us are perfect.

Ditto our families.

Considering the connection we all have to technology, it would be nearly impossible for a citizen to have a 100% “altar boy-like” phone and text record extending through every member of his family.

The New York Times published an op-ed article, reprinted today in the Berkshire Eagle.

Shockingly it was critical of Obama…that may be a first for the Eagle…though they made it clear whose opinion it was.

What the piece naively overlooked was speculation over other reasons beside the lame excuse of preventing terrorism, that’s inspired such aggressive behavior by Obama and his Merry Men.

Here’s my theory.

A Conservative decides to run for office.

His prospects of victory begin to grow.

But unlike Nixon at Watergate, all the wire tapping and recording devices are already in place.

All the DNC has to do is dip into the well and pull out a few juicy gems.

Maybe the candidate’s son or daughter lives an alternative lifestyle….or they themselves are taking pills for stress, or nerves, or a disease of some kind, or any other gossip worthy piece of intel.

Nothing just happens under Obama…they’re always coordinated.

Prove me wrong good people.

Here’s just a brief snippet of the bully tactics of our current administration.

Unfair Treatment of John Kerry

January 25, 2014

I happen to enjoy making subliminal comments, hoping to influence.

It doesn’t mean they work–bottom line–aren’t we all (at least a smidgen) about entertaining ourselves?

The latest is a lame attempt by the TransCanada team to trick John Kerry into recommending the Keystone XL Pipeline be approved from Canada to the U.S.

We conservatives know, the President WILL NEVER approve this deal, because it’s good for America and lowers fuel prices.

You see Barack is devoted to raising the cost of gasoline, so this is one prediction I make without reservation…(If wrong I’ll wear an Obama mask on my birthday every year for life).

Here’s an excerpt from a Fox News article on the latest sleight of hand…(remember Mrs. Teresa Kerry is part of the Heinz Ketchup fortune).

Watch carefully for the number 57…it’s the key word that spellbinds all billionaires associated with condiments.

Officials familiar with the State Department review said the report, known as an environmental impact statement, is expected to be relatively vague, giving Obama wide leeway to make a decision for or against the proposal, the newspaper reported.

On Thursday, U.S. and Canadian accident investigators urged their governments to impose new safety rules on so-called oil trains, warning that a “major loss of life” could result from an accident involving the increasing use of trains to transport large amounts of crude oil.

A spokesman for TransCanada said Friday it is in everyone’s interest to ensure that oil shipments are as safe as possible — whatever the method.

TransCanada has agreed to implement 57 voluntary safety measures for Keystone XL in a bid to convince U.S. officials that the pipeline is a good risk.

Nice try folks…as for me, I prefer paying upwards of $3.50 per gallon…it warms my credit card every time I pump iron with the little rubber handle on it.

Plus, we Bay-Staters like to stick together….

Hey John, can you help register my Toyota in Rhode Island, so I can avoid paying excise tax in Mass?

Public apology to the Kerrys…it’s all in good fun friends…Mr. K, the economy stinks and our wallets need a break, we’re not all Thurston J. Howell III’s…please search your heart and do the right thing.

The Criminal Always Returns to the Scene of the Movie

January 24, 2014

In spite of the fact Dinesh D’Souza’s movie 2016 was a surprise hit at the box office in 2012–still–too few Americans have seen it.

The facts laid out of a man whose father craved the destruction of anything remotely connected to colonialism may be the best documentary ever–supported by events as they unfold–exactly as predicted.

I don’t need to tell you how it ends…you’re living it…especially if you’re a devout Catholic.

In my own quiet and mostly ineffective way, attempts to get others to rent and view this film have been futile at best.

Then, like a dove descending on the Lord at His baptism, the FBI arrests Mr. D’Souza for what everyone knows is more of the same targeting/retribution of a conservative.

This is my beloved movie…with it I am well pleased.

Now that you know Dinesh has been arrested for ruffling a few feathers, isn’t it time you saw it?

Thanks FBI…Free Box-office Inspiration.

P.S….there’s another D’Souza documentary coming out in July called America.

What if Unemployment Were Above 35%?

January 23, 2014

Can you imagine how bad our economy might be if we had an administration that lied about the facts?

Wait…what am I saying.

Check out this well documented article from the Washington Examiner written by Paul Bedard.

Don’t believe the happy talk coming out of the White House, Federal Reserve and Treasury Department when it comes to the real unemployment rate and the true “Misery Index.” Because, according to an influential Wall Street advisor, the figures are a fraud.

In a memo to clients provided to Secrets, David John Marotta calculates the actual unemployment rate of those not working at a sky-high 37.2 percent, not the 6.7 percent advertised by the Fed, and the Misery Index at over 14, not the 8 claimed by the government.

Marotta, who recently advised those worried about an imploding economy to get a gun, said that the government isn’t being honest in how it calculates those out of the workforce or inflation, the two numbers used to get the Misery Index figure.

“The unemployment rate only describes people who are currently working or looking for work,” he said. That leaves out a ton more.

“Unemployment in its truest definition, meaning the portion of people who do not have any job, is 37.2 percent. This number obviously includes some people who are not or never plan to seek employment. But it does describe how many people are not able to, do not want to or cannot find a way to work. Policies that remove the barriers to employment, thus decreasing this number, are obviously beneficial,” he and colleague Megan Russell in their new investors note from their offices in Charlottesville, Va.

They added that “officially-reported unemployment numbers decrease when enough time passes to discourage the unemployed from looking for work. A decrease is not necessarily beneficial; an increase is clearly detrimental.”

Then there is the Misery Index, which is a calculation based in inflation and unemployment, both numbers the duo say are underscored by the government. He said that the Index doesn’t properly calculate how Uncle Sam is propping up the economy with bond purchases and other actions.

“These tricks, along with a host of other dubious accounting schemes, underreport inflation by about 3 percent,” they wrote, adding that the official inflation rate is just 1.24 percent.

“Today, the Misery Index would be 7.54 using official numbers,” they wrote. But if calculations tabulating the full national unemployment including discouraged workers, which is 10.2 percent, and the historical method of calculating inflation, which is now 4.5 percent, ‘the current misery index is closer to 14.7, worse even than during the Ford administration.”

Remember The Anti-Smoking Lobby?

January 22, 2014

Most of the time I don’t appreciate second-hand smoke.

But, if there happens to be a decent cigar wafting through the air, I’m good with it.

The anti-smoking lobby pretty much dominated Big Tobacco, beginning with the removal of cigarette commercials from TV way back in the 70’s, culminating with massive class action law suits against Tobacco giants, for the harm they did deceiving and poisoning the general public.

Can somebody please tell me where all the do-gooders who fought this battle have gone, especially when it comes to the discussion of smoking marijuana?

Is it just me, or is their silence deafening?

You can always count on liberals to bang the drum when it helps their agenda, then hide it when it hurts.

Check out this great video…it’s a simple lesson in hypocrisy,
