Try and wrap your mind around the following numbers.  The Federal government has spent EVERY dollar that every taxpayer, corporation and taxable entity has EVER paid either in income taxes, social security or medicare.  Gone...spent.  Beyond that, they have spent money that they borrowed to the tune of $15.7 Trillion.  Gone...spent.  Beyond that, they printed money to spend to the tune of tens of trillions since the early 1960s.  Gone...spent.   Beyond that, they have promised to pay monies in unfunded programs to the tune of $119 Trillion!  The unfunded liability alone adds up to just over $1 Million per taxpayer!  If you want to watch this train wreck as it happens watch the US Debt Clock as it ticks towards our doom.

Now the fraud who sits in the White House is telling us that they just need to raise taxes a little in order to get the budget under control.  Whaaaa!  That is like trying to heal a drug addict with just a little more crack!

Catholic History, More To Know

My daughter, Beverly, showed me this remarkable story of the Catholic faith.  It takes place in the earliest days of our country and is the story of Mr. Adam Livingston, a Virginia farmer.

I thank our wonderful God for this church and Her treasures.

My Huge Problem!

The first step to curing a problem is to admit you have a problem.  Well, in the spirit of the twelve step recovery program, I admit I have a problem.  Friends, family, co-workers…bear with me because I am coming out, seeking your help and understanding.  I… I am… that is…uuh… Boy this is hard… OK, in one breath, I’ll just say it…I am a BIRTHER!

Whew!  I feel better already.

The Inconceivable Will Meet The Inevitable

Poor Nancy Pelosi was asked, during a press conference, if her Catholic faith gave her any reservations concerning Obama's spoken support of same-sex marriage.  She not only supported Obama's initiative but went on to say, “It’s a matter of time. It’s all about time. And on these issues, what is inevitable to some of us is inconceivable to others,” she said. “And what we want to do is shorten the difference between the inevitable and the inconceivable,” she continued. “And I think the president went a long way in doing that yesterday.”

Well...she got it right, but not the way she believes.  The inconceivable, for her, divine justice of our Lord is the inevitable outcome to her efforts.  May God have mercy on her soul...she'll need it!

Jesus and the unions

The kingdom of heaven is like to an householder, who went out early in the morning to hire labourers into his vineyard. [2] And having agreed with the labourers for a penny a day, he sent them into his vineyard. [3] And going out about the third hour, he saw others standing in the market place idle. [4] And he said to them: Go you also into my vineyard, and I will give you what shall be just. [5] And they went their way. And again he went out about the sixth and the ninth hour, and did in like manner.
[6] But about the eleventh hour he went out and found others standing, and he saith to them: Why stand you here all the day idle? [7] They say to him: Because no man hath hired us. He saith to them: Go you also into my vineyard. [8] And when evening was come, the lord of the vineyard saith to his steward: Call the labourers and pay them their hire, beginning from the last even to the first. [9] When therefore they were come, that came about the eleventh hour, they received every man a penny. [10] But when the first also came, they thought that they should receive more: and they also received every man a penny.
[11] And receiving it they murmured against the master of the house, [12] Saying: These last have worked but one hour, and thou hast made them equal to us, that have borne the burden of the day and the heats.[13] But he answering said to one of them: Friend, I do thee no wrong: didst thou not agree with me for a penny? [14] Take what is thine, and go thy way: I will also give to this last even as to thee. [15] Or, is it not lawful for me to do what I will? is thy eye evil, because I am good?
Douay-Rheims Bible: Matt 20: 1-15
The rest of the story:
The murmuring labourers continued to complain among themselves.  They appealed to the procurator of their district telling him they would support him against the householder and all the others of his class if he would support them as they organized against their employer.  Thus they formed a union and supported by the governor brought the vineyard owner to their table and extorted from him higher wages and shorter hours with the threat ruining his vineyard.  Further, they required each labourer to support them with portions of their wages regardless of their will in the matter.  Again, extortion was used, no dues, no work.  Over time, the vineyards became smaller and fewer.

The parable of the vineyard owner was given to us by our Lord Jesus Christ.  He uses it to describe the kingdom of heaven.  What is important to understand is, Jesus used an earthly analogy to describe an eternal truth.  Though He was talking about heaven, He used a moral earthly truth to illustrate His point.  Jesus would never use an erroneous example to describe a truth.  In other words, the vineyard owner was in the right and for those laborers to coerce from him more than he was willing to pay is a wrong.  God will account for it at the judgment.  The same goes for the workers who would rather not associate with unions.  If they are forced to contribute, against their will, God will keep the proper account.  One of the sins crying to heaven for vengeance is defrauding a laborer of his wages.

Will The Real Bible Please Stand Up

The first of the two central tenets of Protestantism is to read the bible and discern the Christian faith for yourself.  Hummm...  Which bible would that be exactly...there are many different versions.  The fascinating tale of the bible can be read at the link above.

For the "cliff note" summary it works out like this:  The Catholic Church commissioned a complete volume of sacred scripture to be assembled so as to combat errors and false translations which were already a problem in the fourth century.  They evaluated the volume compiled faithfully by (now) St. Jerome and completed in the year 405.  That bible, certified by the Church, was THE BIBLE for over 1,100 years.  It is known as the Latin Vulgate.

The Douay-Rheims bible is the faithful translation from the Latin Vulgate into English.

All the others do not have such a pure pedigree.  They started appearing at the confluence of two notable events in history, the invention of the printing press, for now anyone could afford to print whatever they wished, and the Protestant revolt.  In order to shore up their tenet of “scripture only” they needed “scripture” to shore them up.  A most circular arrangement.  Reminds me of Obama proving he was born in Hawaii by providing a birth certificate made by Obama, not Hawaii.

The Bible did not simply fall out of the sky in God's own handwriting.  It was assembled by a true authority, God's own stewards, the One, Holy, Catholic, and Apostolic Church.

They Can Have The World...I Don't Want It

One of the most sinister things about our modern times wherein we have instant communication, fast worldwide travel, huge economies, powerful armed forces and other such things, are these world domination elite people.  I am tired of reading of and watching their machinations and liberty subverting moves which seem to have escalated markedly over the past three years.  Well...OK. Go to it guys.  Bring it on.  Have fun. Feel powerful. Enjoy your spoils.  Live a fat life.  But let me warn you of one little detail.  Jesus is Lord.  He will note with infinite detail the effects of your actions and plots on His people.  He will see if you care for their souls as well as their temporal lives.  He will note if you make their lives better or worse.  He will exact a cruel payback, from you, if He sees even one of His dear, smallest, peasant children suffer death of hunger or disease while you have the temporal power over them.  You are treading into realms which carry the most grave of responsibility.  Good luck with that.

As for the rest of us.  I would urge us all to embrace Christ and His cross.  He is the way to the true paradise.  Come what may over the next decade He will carry us through.  Follow Him.  Renounce Satan. Renounce sin and this certainly includes the sex ones (contraception, abortion, fornicating, divorce, all the other unmentionables).  Our suffering will be turned into joy if we follow Christ.  But like those poor elite idiots mentioned above, we must follow Christ on His terms, not ours.  So, be honest with yourself and Him.

Obama is a fraud

The U.S. government is on record questioning President Obama’s citizenship status as early as when he was 5 years old, stating it lacked documentation to determine his citizenship, WND has learned.
The citizenship inquiry dated back to 1966, when Obama’s mother, Stanley Ann Dunham, was attempting to secure a waiver so her second husband, Indonesian citizen Lolo Soetoro, could return to the country after his visa had expired.
Dunham separated from her first husband, Barack Obama Sr., in 1963 when the future president was 2 years old. Dunham and Obama Sr. are reported to have divorced in 1964.
The recently released immigration file for Barack Obama Sr. indicates the U.S. Immigration and Naturalization Service had doubts he and Obama’s mother were married.
The time honored test of being a natural born citizen is that both parents are legal United States citizens.
