Laugh as you will, this is an example of our tax dollars at work. Is there nothing they can't micromanage? I'm eagerly waiting for instructions on how to wipe my butt in full compliance with the EPA.
Boy are we screwed.

We. Are. Doomed.
Monday, August 25, 2014
Our kids are back at school, starting today. When they got home I immediately came upon notes in all three backpacks detailing an "Ice Bucket Challenge" their school wants 100% participation in. Since theres some controversy about this ( http://www.catholicculture.org/news/headlines/index.cfm?storyid=22369&repos=4&subrepos=2&searchid=1408858 ) I wanted to get the wife's input before deciding.
A bit of background here. My better half is an RN who came upon her pro life views honestly, i.e. through her training she realized what abortion and everything associated with it entails, thus she's adamantly pro life.
So when I posed the "Whaddaya think?" question, her eyes starting glowing, teeth flashed, hands clenched. Not pretty.
Well, I've got my answer. So tonight I'll be typing up three responses for our kids to take to school. We'll decline to participate due to our religious beliefs and anyone who doesn't like it can take a flying leap at a rolling doughnut. These fools are going to fall short of their participation goal.
But I have to admit, it was her response that stiffened my resolve. It's just a bit embarrassing to admit but there ya go. The wife kept me on the straight and narrow.
What the hell, the school administration probably thinks I'm nuts already. Everyday while waiting to pick my kids up I routinely pray the rosary out in the foyer to the main entrance. It keeps me focused on something other than the gratuitous T&A floor show from some of the "moms". At times it's actually driven some folks away.
But that is another story.

So first out of the box comes a story about some kid getting busted for writing how he killed a dinosaur. What, is Fred Flintstone his principal? Here's the link: http://www.nbc12.com/story/26319685/cops-summerville-high-school-student-arrested-after-writing-threatening-message-on-assignment#.U_Sna8ZblaU.facebook
Please note this happened in South Carolina, not exactly known as a hotbed for liberal thinking.
There must be something in the water, lowering the national intelligence in all states. I'd like to say this story is an anomaly but we all know different. For example, theres another story about a kid in North Carolina getting in trouble for saying, "Bless You" when a classmate sneezed. Another story out of Tennessee about a middle school teacher having her class reenact the shooting in Ferguson, MO.
I see kids are no longer able to sell snacks at school since they don't meet the federal guidelines for healthy foods, hell in some schools they can't even bring them in to celebrate a birthday! This was brought about by legislation pushed by our dear First Lady. Who the hell elected her for anything anyway?
But the kids are getting well taught in how to place condoms on bananas. Life is all about priorities I guess.
I also see how an archbishop in Oklahoma is suing to stop a Black Mass using a consecrated Host. Lotsa luck your Excellency; I don't think it'll work. As has been noted by quite a few folks (many of them Protestants) discrimination against Catholics can count as the last allowed prejudice in our time.
Speaking of which, a couple who rent out their farm in New York for weddings and other events were successfully sued by a lesbian couple for not taking their business. Same old story, in this case we have a Catholic couple not wanting to seemingly endorse gay marriage. Funny thing, my copy of the Catechism bears them out. It doesn't matter though, they've got to pony up about 130 K plus attend diversity training/brainwashing/reeducation camp and pay for their employees to do the same. Right now they're weighing their options regarding appealing this crap. Thought crime will be stamped out no matter what and damn that pesky First Amendment!
Dear Leader has sent the nation's top cop to Ferguson. Upon arrival he immediately root smooched the black community, saying he basically felt their pain. I wonder if this nitwit knows he's a servant of ALL the people, not just those he chooses to suck up to prior to all the facts being known about an incident? Never mind, previous actions answer that question (dropping any action against the New Black Panthers for voter intimidation in Pennsylvania comes to mind).
As for the international front, Dear Leader is busily addressing all problems (ISIS, Iraq, Syria, Russia & Ukraine, Central American children swarming our borders, etc.) from the front seat of a golf cart. Maybe we should count our blessings, if he went back to D.C. he might actually try doing something and then we'd REALLY have problems. He spends so much time on the links I have to wonder if his old lady isn't cheating on him. Seen it happen before, a cat don't stray if it's fed at home and just how often are those two together?
As far as him sneaking under the sheets with some honey, I really can't see it. Not that he wouldn't, he's just too stupid to pull off any deception.
That leads to my closing thought; we don't have a Manchurian Candidate in the Oval Office, he isn't a closet Muslim setting us up for the next caliphate, nor intentionally trying to foment racial strife nor actively work in accordance with ANY hidden agenda. Dear Leader is just a dumbass. Period. I don't think he could pour piss out of a boot without instructions on his teleprompter.
But if you want to see real "stupid", remember that a majority of voters placed him in office twice. THATS where the real stupidity kicks in.
Maybe there is something in the water, I wonder how it got there. Now it's getting really late and I'm ready for beddy-bye. Hopefully the world is still here when I wake up.

Am I the only one who notices how the Administration's allies (MSM) exerted themselves to keep Ferguson on the front burner until the last few days? Plus how this story came out shortly after it was noticed that by de facto amnesty on the part of the White House & Co., many blacks will find the job market even more hostile? That more than one group of prominent blacks was starting to complain about it? Several bloggers have pointed out the lack of coverage regarding black on black crime (Chicago for example) in favor of one selected incident in an obscure town of the Deep South. Gee, what a coincidence.
I think a lot of folks are getting played on this one. Now our Dear Leader will regain the support he may have lost in the black community due to our porous borders and their effect on the poorest of our nation.
As for the New Black Panthers and their presence, can anyone recall any time when these fools did more than pose for the cameras? Seriously, this ain't Huey Newton's gang of thugs. What we're seeing now are a bunch of self important blowhards allowed time on the camera. Kind of like the fools of "Occupy" only with braids. But they DO serve to ramp up the rhetoric at a time when keeping the Ferguson story front and center in the public eye works to the advantage of Dear Leader. Ergo nobody is even thinking of having their butts removed in order to bring some peace and quiet to the town.
The whole damned thing is cheap theater built upon a routine encounter by a dumb felon with the law. Honest, just how often is the same thing happening throughout our nation? C'mon, five gets you ten some dopes committed suicide by cop in several cities since this story hit the news. It happened with white crooks or black crooks, against white or black cops. But we ain't hearing die diddle squat because the realization of how pathetically common it is that stupid punks get themselves killed by the police would only quell the outrage being stoked by the MSM.
We still have two and a half years of this Administration, that's IF some crisis doesn't happen necessitating the imposition of martial law before January of 2017. I don't want to know how much worse things will get, but I believe we're going to find out. Our collective ass is grass and somebody is revving up a power mower.
God's will be done, may He have mercy on us all.

So how long before other cities see muggings where the perps shout "This is for Mike Brown!" as they beat some innocent man or woman?
Things seemed to be calming down while the local police were in control. Still tense enough that you could probably smell it, but there actually was a letup of the looting. Then they brought in another commander, one who had grown up in Ferguson and just wanted to defuse things. The governor of the state has also gotten involved. Now it's Hell on Earth there, boy sure is a good thing they took the local cops (who knew the area and may have had a reason to act in a heavy handed manner) off the scene to ease the situation. How long before someone in authority says, "We really screwed that one up."? I won't be holding my breath.
Evidently the "gentle giant" who wouldn't even go out for football had no qualms about roughing up a store clerk while heisting some cigars. Some years ago I was told by a recovering addict that sweet, small cigars were the choice of crackheads, they'd sprinkle some drug on the cigar and light up. The number one choice of smoke was Swisher Sweets. Given that plus the out of character behavior of the deceased, I wonder what a toxicology report might show. Any guesses that we'll never see it?
This Christmas I may get the wife a CHL. Maybe Christmas should come early this year.

Right now our nation is freefalling in it: http://www.theblaze.com/stories/2014/08/08/this-dad-was-baffled-after-being-told-his-fourth-grader-brought-a-weapon-to-school-then-they-told-him-what-it-was/

I've been of the opinion that prior to January of 2017 our Fearless Leader will find a reason to impose martial law, suspend the results of any Presidential election recently held and crack down on all dissenters (that includes you and I).
So what if a large percentage of the American people soon said, "Enough is enough" in regards to the flood of illegal aliens coming across our southern border? What if they said, "Compassion be damned! Enforce the stinking laws!" and then began getting REALLY loud about it?
How about a riot or two? It wouldn't even need professional provocation to happen, there are plenty of people who feel strongly about showing charity to those officially deemed to flee increasing violence in Central America (though for the life of me I don't recall any news to that effect in the last few years). If this wouldn't pit one group of Americans against another, what would?
Then the tanks start rolling as the whole idea of posse comitatus is tossed. You can bet a fair number of our military would buy into the "save the children" meme, another portion would just want to restore order. Plus face it folks, the average sailor, marine, dogface, flyboy doesn't stay any more well informed than his civilian counterpart. Sorry, the ideal of a military consisting of uber patriots toting around a copy of the Constitution in his/her seabag or duffel bag is fantasy. If it does they must all be riding unicorns too fast for us to see them.
Do I believe it's been the aim of this Administration all along as regards the flood of illegals? No. But I do believe when our Chief Executive promised to transform America he wasn't just whistling "Dixie". I do believe he and his crew have been hoping for something to explode in the fashion I described, that maybe they've been rattling so many cages all along was in the hope of riling up enough citizens to justify martial law. Maybe. It isn't something I'd bet the farm on but I DO give it serious thought.
So tell me I'm wrong. Tell me I spend too much time thinking thoughts of a tinfoil hat quality. Please do, because I REALLY would rather be as crazy as a shithouse rat than right.
God's will be done, may He have mercy on us all.
Because it seems they just can't stay out of the news; especially when they really should. Right now I'm thinking of topics such as the swarm of illegal aliens on our southern border, gun control, and feeding at the public trough.
THE BISHOPS: IMO is a bunch of ambitious, vain, self-important idiots who can be counted on to sit on the fence whenever possible, rarely come down on the side of the man in the street and almost always plant a big, wet, sloppy tongue in the rear of the Administration. This is normally done in concert via the USCCB but can be done individually.
THE POPE: Nice guy who should know when he should keep his mouth shut but seens too stupid to do so. The Holy Spirit must know we need a scourging; this time around we don't get Attila The Hun, we get Howdy-Doody.
Nope, ain't no conspiracy in play on the part of either party. Just a whole lot of dumbass, self interest and vanity.
Anyone who wishes to screech I owe them respect due to their position can forget it. In 22 years of military service I learned that is the cheapest form of "respect", one that more often than not is built upon the genuine accomplishments of better, wiser men than whoever may be the present target of conversation/condemnation. The idea of pygmies standing on the shoulders of giants comes to mind. So stick it where the sun don't shine.

While I don't agree with a lot of what she says regarding the root cause, I believe the overall gist of things is dead on the money. Yep, we've been sold down the river by our bishops. Hang onto your rosary beads, the ride is going to get real interesting.
