Two prayers....

God's will be done and may He have mercy upon us all.

About Me

My photo
A Catholic who follows Rome & the Magisterium. I'm against gay "marriage", abortion, embryonic stem cell research, euthanasia, human cloning. Altar girls, Communion in the hand, Eucharistic Ministers and "Protestant" music in the Church doesn't bother me at all. A proud American retired submarine sailor. Our borders should be secured with a 10 ft. high fence topped by concertina wire with minefields out to 20 yards on both sides and an additional 10 yards filled with warning signs outside of that Let's get energy independent NOW! Back Israel to the max, stop appeasing followers of the Pedophile Prophet. Pro 2nd Amendment, pro death penalty, Repeal all hate crime legislation. Back the police unless you'd rather call a hippie when everything hits the fan. Get government out of dealing with education, childhood obesity and the enviornment. Stop using the military for sociological experiments and if we're in a war don't micromanage their every move. Kill your television, limit time on the computer and pick up a book. God's will be done and may He have mercy upon us all.

The whole world is looking like crap...

Seems there isn't anything going right lately.

Our local fishwrap (Dallas Morning News) gives scant IF ANY coverage to stories such as Obama's total disregard for the War Powers Act in his bid for regime change in Libya, or the can of worms opened by investigating "Operation Gunwalker" aka "Fast & Furious". But I do get a lot of info regarding how the heat is breaking records. BFD, I have air conditioning. Even without the AC the damned heat is small potatoes compared to the disregard for our Constitution and the imperiled lives of Border Patrol agents, Mexican citizens and other innocents.

All of my so called "friends" in this area are fast becoming fair weather acquaintances, i.e. I see/hear them only when nobody else is around. Hey, I ain't anyone's consolation prize in life. Buzz off!

All too many Catholic blogs I frequent seem caught up in piously bemoaning (pick one) the death penalty, the anniversary of Nagasaki, the plight of our "poor" due to not having their entitlements raised during the budget battle, the lack of the TLM, and there are probably more that I can't bring to mind right off the top of my head. I remember now how easy it was to leave the Church some years back, when everything you believe in is criticized you get the "why bother" attitude and head out the door while giving the "single finger salute".

I don't see any Reaganesque figure emerging from the GOP for the nomination in 2012. I've a hunch it'll be another case of "hold your nose while voting". Done too much of that already. Voldemort and Sauron are both dead so it's back to picking the lesser of two evils.

On the home front, my in-laws have gone out of their way the past few months to remove all doubt of their shallow, inane, narcissistic and infantile character. The good news in that area is the wife doesn't expect me to do anything but keep my big mouth shut. I often wonder if she was a foundling.

There is a lot more I can piss, moan and groan about. You got the point ten minutes ago. I'm getting to where I just don't give a damn anymore, Scarlett. I know that glass is half full, just have to adjust my attitude again. There are actually a lot of good things going on in my life, like most folks I focus on the crap. It's just another attitude attack.

It's break time. See ya later.

Forgive me if this comment sounds all "religious" and stuff, but don't let Satan drag you into despair. He's so freakin' good at that!

Hang in there...hope there will be something that will put a big smile on your face soon.

I could have written this. Sigh...

(Except both my in-laws are gone. Mama in-law was insane - really.)

The friends thingy? When we quit attending the parish church they evaporated. This after almost 10 years of RE and RCIA teaching, fund raising, on and on.

Now they essentially have Roman-protestants running the show. Awful.

Catholic blogs? I read hardly any of them. It is clear there is some real dry-rot in the Church.

Ok - rant over...

Hey, Vet! Sorry things are looking so down. I'd cheer you up, but I just got done reading about the riots in England and my optimism is kind of flagging right now, too. Lisa Graas is trying to get me on the Santorum bandwagon, but I'm with you ... like Pete Townsend wrote, "Meet the new boss /Same as the old boss".

Hang in there, brother!

Don't feel like the lone stranger, my friend.

On the bright side--I'm old enough that I don't have to worrya bout my personal future, so i can say whatever the hell I want on my blog. As the Antibiotics clear up the bugs, my energy is returning, and I'll be able rant like a Redneck soon.

Vet, we all focus on the "CRAP" because there is more of it now then ever.

All Christian churches seem to be on a downward slide, more interested in their bottom line while being afraid to offend anyone no matter how vile their sins.

The fan is running full speed and the turds are being flung at it full force. All we can do now is duck.
