In the small town of Winnebago, Illinois they had a homecoming parade Wednesday. The homecoming game is tonight and the dance is tomorrow night. RJ’s big sis asked a boy to go to homecoming, although she insists it’s NOT A DATE!! Mom has ordered a boutonniere for the young casanova and she’s getting a corsage. They’re going to a Japanese restaurant in Rockford for dinner along with, she thought, his parents. My daughter informed her that she and her stepdad will also be along as chaperones. She’s a wonderful kid and I couldn’t ask for a better granddaughter but responsible parents like she has (and I had) don’t buy the “boys will be boys” and “might as well give them condoms because they’re going to do it anyway” horses hit. One day they will look back and be thankful they had parents who loved and protected them, even the times they were sure mom and dad just didn’t understand because they were never young.
THIS MAN OWNS THE MOST POPULAR (AND ONE OF ONLY TWO) PIZZA RESTAURANTS IN TOWN. HE’LL BE AT THE HOMECOMING GAME TONIGHT, GIVING AWAY PIZZA IN EXCHANGE FOR DONATIONS TO ST. JUDE’S CHILDREN’S HOSPITAL. HE’S DONATING HIS TIME AND FOOD 100%. THAT’S HOW SMALL TOWNS ROLL.
FROM THE INNOCENCE OF SMALL TOWN AMERICA TO THE SENSELESS TRAGEDY THAT UNFOLDED YESTERDAY AS A COLD-BLOODED KILLER MURDERED 10 PEOPLE BEFORE THE POLICE SENT HIM TO HELL. NEVER TO LET A NATIONAL TRAGEDY GO TO WASTE, OBAMA WAS IN FRONT OF CAMERAS BEFORE THE FINAL BODY COUNT WAS DETERMINED RAILING ABOUT MORE GUN CONTROL
Umpqua Shooter Targeted “Christians” – Ordered Victims “STAND UP AND STATE YOUR RELIGION”
“The shooter was lining people up and asking if they were Christian,” she wrote. “If they said yes, then they were shot in the head. If they said no, or didn’t answer, they were shot in the legs. My grandma just got to my house, and she was in the room. She wasn’t shot, but she is very upset.
‘The more people you kill, the more you’re in the limelight’: College gunman, 26, was ‘filled with hate,’ lived with his mother and asked if his victims were Christian in rampage that left at least ten dead
Chris Harper-Mercer, 26, has been identified as the gunman at Umpqua Community College in Roseburg, Oregon

THIS WRETCHED PIG WAS NOT!!!! A CONSERVATIVE REPUBLICAN, DESPITE THE LEFT’S BEST EFFORTS TO MAKE HIM SO. HIS FATHER WAS WHITE BUT HAD NOT BEEN IN HIS LIFE SINCE INFANCY. HE LIVED WITH HIS BLACK MOTHER.
TRAGICALLY THIS SLAUGHTER COULD HAVE BEEN STOPPED
Armed Air Force Vet Was on Umpqua Campus – Barred From Assisting Victims During Shooting
John Parker was in the veteran’s center with other veterans.
He went out to help the victims.
But officials barred him from helping the victims as they were being gunned down.
“I was carrying. And I was ready to help.”
Obama: Never Letting a Good Mass Shooting Go To Waste
In his televised temper tantrum, Obama scolded those opposed to a crackdown on firearms ownership, including people who say the nation needs “more guns” to prevent such mass shootings. He implored those who would gut Second Amendment protections to vote for political candidates who share their visceral contempt for a constitutionally-guaranteed right.
“Each time this happens I’m going to bring this up,” Obama said. “Each time this happens I am going to say we can actually do something about it.”
Obama’s twelve-and-a-half minute oration was the fifteenth time the president has issued a statement on a mass shooting, CBS Radio reporter Mark Knoller wrote on Twitter.
SAME OLD SAME OLD
THIS MAY OR MAY NOT COME AS A COMPLETE SURPRISE TO YOU:
In 12 Minute Speech to America About Mass Shooting, Obama Refers to Himself 28 Times
During today’s 12-minute address, President Obama referred to himself 28 times. (For those counting at home, that’s almost three times per minute.)
Note that in arriving at this calculation, we included mentions of “we” when he was clearly including himself as part of the plural pronoun; the many uses of “we” in referring to America at large were not included.
The Radical-in-Chief grabs the Oregon atrocity and opens fire on the Second Amendment
Well, yes and no. As per usual, the pope haters are spinning a standard homiletic message to suit their agenda, rather than to further the work of God’s people.
Here are his real words, spoken Sept. 24 at Vespers to a group of priests and religious.
We can get caught up measuring the value of our apostolic works by the standards of efficiency, good management and outward success which govern the business world.
Not that these things are unimportant!
We have been entrusted with a great responsibility, and God’s people rightly expect accountability from us.
But the true worth of our apostolate is measured by the value it has in God’s eyes.
To see and evaluate things from God’s perspective calls for constant conversion in the first days and years of our vocation and, need I say, it calls for great humility.
The cross shows us a different way of measuring success.
Ours is to plant the seeds: God sees to the fruits of our labors.
And if at times our efforts and works seem to fail and produce no fruit, we need to remember that we are followers of Jesus… and his life, humanly speaking, ended in failure, in the failure of the cross.
Note: The haters are mis-quoting the last line as “his life . . . ended in failure, in the failure of the cross.” There’s a whole lot of biblical truth in the words they decided to leave out, KWIM?
Read the full text of his beautiful message:
Brent Bozell, in his Fox News piece today put it fairly well. “There’s no pretty way of putting this.” When Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell announced that conservatives need to be patient and that the time is still not right, there can be no other conclusion except that he has no intention of ever voluntarily voting to stop giving taxpayer money to Planned Parenthood.
How do we know this? Easy. Just imagine what could possibly make the situation more ripe for doing so – right now. A mere few months ago, no one could have imagined the complete and total havoc wrought on the reputation of Planned Parenthood by seemingly endless undercover tapes showing PP officials swigging wine and gloating about making a fortune selling intact baby parts that could only be obtained by harvesting in illegal (and horrific) ways. PP CEO Cecile Richards has been publicly forced to admit embarrassing things in front of Congress that strip virtually any remaining legitimacy from the organization.
What else could we possibly be waiting for? What science fiction writer-on-amphetamines could come up with anything more compelling? The answer, of course, is ‘nothing.’
They’ve had one job that was a no-brainer for 40 years. One job that could surely be done with good conscience even if nothing else on the conservative agenda got done. Instead, zip, zilch, nada.
They’ve made themselves immoral and useless. It’s time for us to make them extinct. Please vote for a Tea Party extremist next year, instead of a RINO.
The fascinating thing about my regular Thursday breakfast with my kin is you’re never quite sure who will show up. This morning it was me, Uncle Bob, Uncle Roger, my cousin Trish, and my cousin Pam’s daughter, Carrie, who I haven’t seen since she was a little girl. She’s 32 and has two children. She works at a mega-church thrift store in town. We spent more than an hour eating and being peppered with questions from Carrie about the family history. There is a chalk portrait in her mother’s home she never realized was of her mother, Pam, done by my mom. She seemed enthralled by all the things she never knew and I look forward to seeing her again. I consider it of utmost importance to pass on the history of the family so when we pass on the history of who we are and where we came from can live on.
The world is a cold, hard place, unfeeling and uncaring. Many days I don’t even check what’s going on because everything seems to be wrong. It’s at a point where nothing matters much anymore outside of my faith and my family. I will still post the usual stuff as the spirit moves. God bless you all.
WARNING: The video linked below is extremely graphic.
The reference to Mrs. Fiorina relates to the following text, which appears below the video at YouTube.
On September 16, 2015, Carly Fiorina said at the CNN Republican presidential debate, “Watch a fully formed fetus on the table, its heart beating, its legs kicking, while someone says, ‘We have to keep it alive to harvest its brain.’ This is about the character of our nation, and if we will not stand up and force President Obama to veto this [Planned Parenthood defunding] bill, shame on us.”
Mrs. Fiorina has been accused of lying about this video, but the unedited version linked below proves she was not. The full text posted beneath the video at YouTube is well worth reading.
