  • Possibly, somewhere in the Universe, the loose crew will uncover evidence of Russian collusion with President Donald J. Trump in the recent election.

  • One important thing that has probably missed the attention of most Americans, who are generally landlubbers. 🙂
    However, it may then have missed your notice that a couple of weeks ago, Team New Zealand beat Team Oracle USA for the Americas Cup – the oldest trophy in the world in sporting endeavours, even if it is just sailing. But with the usual Kiwi ability and penchant for No. 8 wire technology, our Kiwi IT dudes beat the Oracle Larry Ellison IT Giant at their own game and cleaned them out, despite the engineered rules to attempt Oracle to retain this amazing trophy. So now the rules will be changed to ensure that noting is stacked in favour of the holders, that the teams will have to have their own countrymen as 80% of the crew/team ( there were only two Americans in Oracles team – the rest were Aussies and Kiwis) and, despite the magnificent location and atmosphere in Bermuda, the Americas Cup contest will be sailed in Auckland, NZ – the true modern era home of the Americas Cup. 🙂

  • “the true modern era home of the Americas Cup.”

    You Kiwis keep it shiny Don, there is always next year!

  • Actually Don, every 4 years – next event 2021. Start brushing up your sailing skills – you’re gonna need ’em. 😉

  • Don’t count us out Don. One never knows how many Kiwis we can hire if America becomes determined enough!

    Does surgery and hormones change Bruce Jenner’s immortal rational soul? Jenner claims that his soul has eternally been a woman, that “the Laws of Nature and Nature’s God” brought forth a man with a woman’s soul, the metaphysical, transcendent human soul clothed with flesh of the wrong sort. Aristotle said, 384 years before Jesus Christ, that the immanent soul is the form of the body, that the body grows to be whomever the rational soul is created to be. Therefore, the rational human soul does not make mistakes about the human being’s body, being that the immortal soul directs the growth, the physical and spiritual growth, of the human person.
    With Caitlyn Jenner, Hans Christian Anderson’s tale “The Emperor’s New Clothes” is taken to a new level of swindle by the Croucher. The flesh of the man is refurbished into a female flesh.
    The destiny of the sovereign personhood of the rational soul cannot be accomplished before death. Therefore, no one can determine that he or she has completely pursued their Happiness in the fulfillment of his or her destiny until the grave.
    Bruce Jenner has died and now Caitlyn Jenner faces the second death.
    Lesbians, sodomites and transgendered people do not procreate. LBGT are a no people.
    The devil is no atheist. The devil makes people into atheists. Do as I say but not as I do. Or else. Or else is The Crucifixion, the coliseum, the political correctness of our indecent culture.

  • Why in the world does this feel more like Star Trek than the trailers for the next star trek series??? (I know the answer, just let me vent)

    Ok, 2 more things.

    1) I would feel better if MacFarlane was in a lower role. I think he’s funniest when he’s not the star. Having him be like the ship janitor would be a much funnier and lead to it being funnier I think.

    2) I wonder how it would be if they made it a legit Trek series. Like it takes place in the main trek universe, but deals with one of the “other” ships that we never see anything about. In a way it could give an excuse for why the Enterprise is always “the only ship in range.” It’s really the only competent ship in range. I dunno, I think it could have been the breath of fresh air the franchise is needing.

  • OK, I know what a Red Shirt is. What’s the Green Smock mean?

  • *headdesk*
    No, no, heck no… so tired of “parodies” that feel like they’re a parody of a parody of a parody of a parody…and have an idiot ball to boot.

  • Our culture has descended into the anal stage. Not acknowledging God or the transcendent rational soul, potty jokes and crude sexual jokes have taken over serious comedy.

  • July 21 We know that Bruce Jenner has a Bruce Jenner rational, immortal human soul, because 384 years before Jesus Christ was born, the Greek philosopher, Aristotle, said that the soul informs the flesh and directs its growth into the man (and in the inclusive language, as the word “man” no longer represents the glory of man, the woman) so, I must add: the woman. Whoever the soul is created to be, the man and/or the woman will become through the direction and form of his and/or her soul.
    Transgendered folks deny that they have a soul or that their soul is who they are destined to be and become.
    The human being is composed of mortal body and immortal rational soul, endowed with life, free will, intellect and sovereign personhood The soul is who directs the life and growth of the human being from conception until death. Death is defined as the soul leaving the body.
    Some transgendered folks and/or atheists will deny existence of the infused rational, soul. Innate human rights that become our unalienable civil rights cannot be denied. Unalienable human rights are inscribed in our Founding Principles. When citizens with sovereign personhood deny their sovereign soul, they forfeit their citizenship for themselves and further by denying innate unalienable human rights for all humankind.
    Mankind is formed by the Holy Spirit operating in and through the soul of man. Man is created equal in original innocence, moral and legal innocence that becomes the standard of Justice for the state. The sovereign personhood of the newly begotten human being, body and soul, institutes the state from the very first moment of his existence. God is existence.
    “their Creator” infuses an innocent soul into every newly begotten human being. His soul directs the physical body of man to survive and grow into adulthood.
    Bruce Jenner’s innocent, rational soul directed his body to grow into an adult man.
    The devil lied and swindled Bruce Jenner to forfeit his adult manhood for a Caitlyn body…
    Caitlyn Jenner has a male soul whose name is Bruce Jenner.

  • Caitlyn Jenner has no feminine curves. Caitlyn Jenner has corners, male corners. Caitlyn Jenner is built like the man, Bruce Jenner.
    Science can build a nose on a man’s forehead, so, no award for Jenner’s boobs. In fact, boobs and the male voice box, the adams apple on the same human body is incongruous and grotesque.
    Caitlyn Jenner has a male soul whose name is Bruce Jenner.
    Bruce Jenner has been swindled out of his male body and his male identity. Who is Caitlyn?

  • Dred Scott might have been our first black president. The free men of the South would have voted for him. The free men of the North would have voted for him. I would have voted for him.
    By refusing to acknowledge the sovereign personhood of Dred Scott and denying Scott his innate human rights that become his civil rights the politically correct court of Roger B. Taney accomplished what they set out to avoid: the tyranny of lawlessness, politically correct ignorance.

  • I love both of the children and their entrances. Hope Dad laughs it off, we’ve all been there in one form or another.

  • I hope that I look half as graceful as mom when she dives in for the extraction….

  • The children want to know what kind of world we are going to be handing over to them. The children will be better for knowing. The great big grown up world and the up and coming.

  • Slightly off topic…our 3month old baby boy came along to the parent teacher meeting for our daughter. During the 15minutes, he managed to a) leak his diaper on my husbands white shirt whilst he was holding him and b) let off a series of bowel movement noises during which we had to keep a poker face and pretend to ignore. They were loud!

    I loved the video of those 2 children who stormed their dads office during a live BBC interview. I see now they have become internet sensations! Very funny stuff.

    Truer words have never been spoken.

    Dr.Wrong mentioned a possible good will moment by Trump supporting Obama’s pick for Supreme Court. Honestly? The good Doctor may want to invest in a truck load of honey-crisp crickets because his suggestion is worse than his polling predictions.

  • Take your meds. It is possible to buy bugs to put on chocolate cookies. My kids did this in a local entomyogy class for kids. Very tolerable. It is likely possible to go to Chinatown and purchase something as well, but I’m not entirely sure about Chinese cuisine. In Japan, I ate these crickets that were coated with a kind of teriyaki BBQ sauce. It wasn’t too bad.
    Now, if Dr. Wong had wanted to do something truly impressive: Japanese “nato”-basically slimy, rotten, soy beans. Roughly 50% of the Japanese population can’t stand it. 100% will try to convince the unsuspecting “gaijin” it is the most Japanese thing to eat, and will watch you carefully to see if you can get it within arms length of your nose. With enough mustard and a lot of sake, it can be accomplished.

Hillary Harangue Open Thread

Friday, July 29, AD 2016


Like her hubby, I decided that the time I would have devoted to watching her speech was best used by me for sleep.  I did joke with my son that if we ever had to inflict torture on  adversaries in some sort of Mad Max post apocalyptic society, we could probably do worse than tying them up, placing them in a room, put the video of this speech on a recurring loop, and come back after twenty-four hours.  In any event post your reactions in the comboxes.  I have heard that she attacked Trump which strikes me as necessary but probably the wrong strategy.  Attacking Trump will allow him to dominate the next news cycle with answers, and if there is one thing I have learned about Trump this year, he thrives on bad publicity that would devastate other politicians.

  • To be coerced into using my money, tax dollars, to kill some woman’s baby in her womb is scandalous and unacceptable.

    We CAN NOT go along with this abuse of power and I don’t know what the alternatives will be if Mrs. Pathetic gets her wish. “Let’s go out there and make it happen,”-HC… promoting free abortions.

    If all Catholics were only united on this issue and we with Protestant Christians make a decision to counter any offensive Madame Benghazi spearheads, then the breakdown of the Beast will begin.

    The hope? Let’s make sure she doesn’t get her wish.

  • Luckily, a John Wayne movie, “Flying Tigers” was on TV. And after that, “The Sands of Iwo Jima,” was played.
    The one-minute I saw was where she shrieked that if Trump doesn’t need to repay his loans (total BS), she’s going to “take care” (total BS – and she’ll spend your $$$) of student loans. It’s all, 100% pandering. Hillary says she’ll will repay (with your money) student loans because the (bubble) higher education industry is a main source of funding, propaganda, and brain-washed imbeciles supporting her 100% BS.
    I had to stop watching after one minute. My super secret bu!! sh!+ decoder ring exploded and burned my right hand.

  • My husband went to bed; he won’t listen to any on them. I had her speech on for 5 min with sound, a bit longer without. She looked mean; the eyes demonic. Not sure what the white suit was supposed to signify…reminded me of Boss Hogg.

  • CAM.

    The white suit signifies the white horse in Rev.6….not the one in chpt.19.
    She…the transporter of the Antichrist.
    She is nothing more than an animal…a beast to usher in chaos.

  • “reminded me of Boss Hogg.”

    Comment of the week CAM! Take ‘er away Sam!

  • “Deeply held religious beliefs and cultural codes must be changed to accommodate women’s health care.” Hillary Clinton.
    Three fourths of the states must ratify any change in our Constitution. Any attempt to change The First Amendment’s freedom of religion and impose a one world godless government denies man’s rational, immortal human soul, man’s sovereign personhood and man’s conscience. Any change in The First Amendment redefines the human being as a beast of burden to the state. Redefining man as a beast of burden to the state is taxation without representation. Redefining man as a beast of burden to the state eliminates The United States as a Constitutional Republic and imposes a totalitarian form of atheistic rule antithetical to The First Amendment, the acknowledgement of God as “their Creator” and the human being as having sovereign personhood. Government does not choose for the sovereign person. The sovereign person, in exercising his free will and rational judgment, chooses truth for himself. With truth as his foundation, a free man institutes his government upon Founding Principles.
    Any violation of our Founding Principles is a miscarriage of Justice. Depending upon the gravity of the miscarriage of Justice, the violation may be tried as treason. More than 60,000,000 unborn human souls are being scraped from the womb. America’s constitutional Posterity is being annihilated. Genocide is treason against the American people.

  • We have (two of our sons’ dogs live with us) two that go absolutely bazookas when the mailman comes by. He just shakes his head.
    Either dog is more qualified to run the USA than Hobamma or Hillary.

  • To T Shaw’s comment, I have yet to own a dog or a cat who is less qualified to run the United States than Obama, Hillary or Bernie.

  • To Lucius and T. Shaw,

    I find it insulting to denigrate dogs by comparing them to Obama, Hillary, or Bernie.

  • Tito,
    I stand – er, sit – humbly chastized for comparing dogs and cats (and other animals) to the likes of Obama, Hillary and Bernie.
    Mea culpa, mea culpa, mea maxima culpa!

    The mailman,
    come to kill us all!
    Look! Look! Look! Look!
    Look! Look! Look! Look! …

  • Hillary’s comparison of republicans to barking dogs compares conservatives trying to tell people about her malfeasance to dogs barking. In her mind a barking dog is to be ignored as non consequential, and of course, as not-as-smart as herself.
    it’s a terrible comparison– no comparison really- barking dogs to the OT prophets
    BUT the prophets were also under appreciated for all their efforts “because all the house of Israel have a hard forehead and a stubborn heart.” – Ezekiel 3:7b
    And the prophecy of Ezekiel holds true: “Yet if you have warned the wicked and he does not turn from his wickedness or from his wicked way, he shall die in his iniquity…”

  • sorry about switching gears like that- I will try to do better

  • Hillary should probably avoid drawing comparisons with dogs in any context. Just sayin’

  • I agree 100% with everything Suz just said!

    Throw the Madame a bone!

  • To Suz and Philip:
    As I recall, another Jezebel met her demise for having arranged the murder of righteous Naboth the Jezreelite in order to confiscate his vineyard for her own, and her husband King Ahab conspired with her. Oh how history repeats itself with William Jefferson and Hillary Rodham Clinton!
    That theft and murder of course met with God’s expressed displeasure, and He sent the prophet Elijah to warn her of her coming fate. Whether she survived being pushed out the window to actually see the horses’ hooves of justice that would trample her into the ground and the canine jaws of death that would eat her wicked body, or was mercifully granted instant demise as her blood splattered on the way down the wall to that sudden stop is a point of conjecture, but not even the dogs would eat her murderous thieving hands and feet, and her lying skull. Yes, Sacred Scripture is revealingly graphic, a lesson Livia Drusilla Augusta Caesar would do well to internalize for repentance.

  • Lucius Quinctius Cincinnatus.

    Very good.

    And you mentioned in a different thread today that your writings were, “pitiful.”

    No way. You have a marvelous way if weaving in and out of history and current affairs.
    Thanks for the morsel.

    btw….how many prophets have spoken plainly to the Hillary? I’m sure she has been warned.

  • God created dogs to model for us how we should love God.
    God created cats to model for us how we actually treat God.

  • Those dogs remind me of environmentalists.

  • When man sins, he falls beneath the animals. Animals are innocent not having but instinct on which to rely. When man sins he becomes a demon like unto his sins. Demons are legion as are man’s sins. It is often heard that man starts looking like his sins. My daughter’s two dogs, rescue animals, trained as therapy dogs instinctively know when I am not well and correspondingly suffer with me. even to putting their heads on my breast and whimpering.
    Hillary, Obama and the like especially that communist Sanders fall to the demons with their tyranny and totalitarianism, especially their pride. They will probably become death bed converts, if we, the people, work hard enough to disable their evil and wicked agenda.

  • Oh, yes, I am loving it, especially having been saved from “1 sketchy looking plastic bag”. No foolin’, my daughter’s dogs know when she is around the corner coming home, just in time for me to unlock the door. Could be our guardian angels as “familiars” caring for us. God works in mysterious ways.

  • My favorite sketch would have to be the end of the universe one from when Gene Kelly guest starred

  • Very disappointing!

    How can you make light of the demonic alien pigs from space? Oh sure, they seem harmless… Dr. Strange Pork…Princess Piggy.

    It only took them thirty two years to integrate into our culture. To be accepted wasn’t enough for them. They had to gain power. After all they had their diabolical agenda to advance.

    In just thirty two years they have succeeded in establishing laws that allow pigs to legally marry other pigs. That humans must use the same public bathrooms as pigs. Soon, the Nation will be forced into accepting Pig Human lifestyles. Pig Human marriages and special treatment for them must be established and respected.

    Pigs in Space?

    I wish it were true.

  • The greatest injustice is that animals have more protection than the human embryo.

    Can you imagine?

    I rant many a day, but it’s because I’m so sick of living in the liberal politically correct society.

    I only find peace in my Lord and praying to him, conversing with him. The Holy Rosary is our lifeline and the Holy sacrifice of the Mass is our lifeboat. I don’t hate the pigs. I hate the promotion of their abuses as being an honorable activity instead of what it truly is.
    A disorder.

Unfortunately one day the bell returned while he was distracted and knocked him from the bell area all the way down to the cobble stone street below. A crowd gathered and many yelled, ” Who is he…who is he?”
    A man came forward, looked at the deceased bell ringer and said, ” I don’t know his name…but his face really rings a bell.”

  • Bet she does real well at CrossFit.
    As for me, I always gain weight during fasting seasons, which in the Byz Church is Lent and Philips Fast (aka Advent.) Then I loose it when we can eat normally again.

  • DJH: I always gain ten pounds when I go on a diet or fast. That is when I start paying attention to what I eat. And paying attention to what one eats is a good thing. Also not having to see oneself as others see oneself is a grace.
    Why is Pope Francis adamant about climate change and the accompanying science, while ignoring wholesale the DNA science of the newly begotten. People as pollution and the power to disenfranchise persons of their civil rights as citizens and dispose of people as in the final solution by addressing their freedom in a group wherein some member may be executed while the group remains is communism. Our Constitution addresses persons as individuals, one person at a time, born and unborn.
    Obama has no authority outside of the Constitution. When Obama acts outside of the Constitution, Obama acts as a private citizen who impeaches himself.
    Climate Change betrays America’s sovereignty by making our sovereignty subject to the UN and gives the UN power to tax, impose fines and confiscate property that is not theirs. Piracy is still illegal.
    Why Pope Francis supports this form of larceny on a global scale is confusing.

  • In other news, Pope Francis declared that “The problem is fundamentalism. I have no problem with Muslims; Muslims are friends of mine. They didn’t sack Rome, did they? But you know who did? It was the Germans! They’re the ones you’ve got to watch out for.” He later excommunicated Cardinal Kasper.

  • Just heard today that Pope Francis is about to ban the execution of capital punishment for homicide in the first degree.
    Divine Mercy or human mercy?
    The corporal works of mercy call for visiting the imprisoned. The corporal work of mercy does not call for releasing unrepentant murders or un-rehabilitated criminals. The ban on Capital Punishment for homicide in the first degree denies the human soul of the murderer, his eternal destiny and the possibility of his repentance, to his undoing. The ban on Capital Punishment for homicide in the first degree invents unequal Justice for the victim and prejudice in favor of the murderer. The victim is dead. The murderer must join his victim.
    The murderer meets his rejected virtues on the gallows when the murderer is brought to equal Justice. The executioner operates through power of attorney of the condemned murderer.
    I can forgive my murderer. I cannot forgive your murderer without becoming an accessory after the fact. For the state to prohibit the execution of Capital Punishment for murderers for homicide in the first degree makes the state liable for any consequent homicide perpetrated by the aforementioned murderer, and brings guilt on the state for not imposing capital punishment, equal Justice, as a deterrent in the first murder.
    Priests and consecrated souls have consecrated themselves to God and as consecrated souls do not partake of the state’s job of executing persons for homicide in the first degree. This includes Pope Francis. Pope Francis’ call for a ban on the execution of Capital Punishment for murder in the first degree is the imposition of atheism and denies the human being’s immortal soul and eternal life. In addition, a ban on capital punishment violates equal Justice.

9 Responses to Unsung Hero Open Thread

  • Driving home from downtown today, I saw a heavy set man in a wheelchair, obviously handicapped, struggling to wheel himself backwards up a steep hill. I was not going in his direction, but as I was making a turn, my grandson and I said a prayer for him. There were able-bodied men walking on the sidewalk with no offers of assistance. My grandson and I were appalled.

    Your clip above reminded me of this paragraph from Pope Benedict’s DEUS CARITAS EST:

    b) Love—caritas—will always prove necessary, even in the most just society. There is no ordering of the State so just that it can eliminate the need for a service of love. Whoever wants to eliminate love is preparing to eliminate man as such. There will always be suffering which cries out for consolation and help. There will always be loneliness. There will always be situations of material need where help in the form of concrete love of neighbour is indispensable.[20] The State which would provide everything, absorbing everything into itself, would ultimately become a mere bureaucracy incapable of guaranteeing the very thing which the suffering person—every person—needs: namely, loving personal concern. We do not need a State which regulates and controls everything, but a State which, in accordance with the principle of subsidiarity, generously acknowledges and supports initiatives arising from the different social forces and combines spontaneity with closeness to those in need. The Church is one of those living forces: she is alive with the love enkindled by the Spirit of Christ. This love does not simply offer people material help, but refreshment and care for their souls, something which often is even more necessary than material support. In the end, the claim that just social structures would make works of charity superfluous masks a materialist conception of man: the mistaken notion that man can live “by bread alone” (Mt 4:4; cf. Dt 8:3)—a conviction that demeans man and ultimately disregards all that is specifically human.

  • Every hero is an unsung hero in that a true hero doesn’t see himself as a hero.

  • This is at least the second or third time I’ve seen a Thai TV commercial that was, in essence, a short film with a profoundly Christian message — coming from a nation that is over 90% Buddhist. Here’s one from a mobile phone company, titled “Giving is the Best Communication”:

  • Wow. Speechless for “more intelligent” description. Wow.

  • This is what Jesus meant when He said, “Even as ye have done it unto the least of these…”

  • Thank you, Ginny: “There is no ordering of the State so just that it can eliminate the need for a service of love.” The principle of separation of church and state in one sentence. A saver.
