Random collection of Saturday stuff

Sept 27, 2013: The 2013 Warrior Open opened with the Pledge of Allegiance and a performance of “America the Beautiful.”

Dubya talked briefly about the tournament. [:44]

Lefties aren’t much different in Iran. Hard-liners threw eggs at moderate President Rouhani as he arrived home from the United Nations. Our leftie wingnuts threw eggs at Bush’s car during the Inauguration Parade. (I always thought the fact the Obamas could walk rather than ride inside a closed car like the Bushes had to do was Proof Positive that right wingnuts are far better behaved then left wingnuts.)

Lying Senator Crapweasels Lindsey Graham and Mitch McConnell voted WITH the Democrats in favor of cloture, which allowed Harry Reid to strip out all the language in the bill to defund Obamacare. Then they bragged that they had “proudly voted to Defund Obamacare.”

Citizens schooled them both:

  • Wow, you must really not think much of your voters.
  • You knew good and well that the bill would be stripped before it was sent back to the house.
  • No one trusts a liar.
  • I will be supporting your opponent in the primary.
  • Do you really think we’re that stupid?
  • You lying piece of trash! You’ve been on the edge for a long time and you finally put yourself over the cliff.
  • You need to start counting the days till the next election because I intend to support ANYONE that primaries you.
  • Unbelievable. Do you really think you can get away with that, Senator?
  • How do you sleep at night, sir?
  • Stand, grow a pair and get your head out of Obamas rear-end!!!

Army combat veteran and cop tells it straight

An impassioned and rational statement against New York’s so-called “Safe Act” by Aaron Weiss of Poughkeepsie [2:58]

I especially like his statement at the end about what the legislators who support this vile law would be willing to do to enforce it. My guess is … nothing. The Left sends better men and women into harm’s way while they sit back in their padded chairs and sip their expensive whiskey.

Pope Francis: Digital domain needs loving dialogue

2013_09 23 Pope Francis tweet w illus

Sept 21, 2013: Pope Francis told Catholic communicators, “I believe that the goal is to understand how to enter into dialogue with the men and women of today in order to appreciate their desires, their doubts and their hopes.”

In a world of rapidly changing methods of communication, “the issues are not principally technological.” Meeting Christ requires a personal encounter that cannot be forced or engineered.

People are searching for the “precious treasure” of the Gospel, which brings light and hope to a world that often lacks meaning, direction and purpose, he said.

Communicators need to portray “the face of a church, which is ‘home’ to all,” and convey the beauty of faith and joy of meeting Christ.
