If You Sign the Petition on the HHS Mandate…

Skinner and the Smoking Man will haul you in for questioning. Be afraid. Be very afraid. They will send black helicopters to abduct you. The IRS will audit you. Also, the Men in Black will visit you with that little doohickey that erases your memory. [Read more…]

A Petition For All Freedom Loving People to Sign UPDATED

 

Notice: This petition reached the goal and was responded to by the Administration.

Evidently, I’m getting ready for a Catholic Spring or something. After posting about the Facebook group all freedom loving people should join, see, I had another idea. After all, if I’m in for a penny, I’m in for a pound. Just like the Pamchenko, there is no “half way” with me. I’m either fully on, or fully off. And you knew John Wayne died a Catholic, right?!

Do you have a Facebook account? If so, you should join, and share, this group today:

Stand with the US Bishops against the HHS. While you’re at it, go sign the petition to the White House too.

That is all.

A Long Time Ago, In a Galaxy Far, Far, Away…

Brought into the present. Is this what it would take for you to consider voting for Obi-wan? You know, Uncle Owen said he’s crazy too, but he never thought much about the Empire, or politics until…it was too late.

Because the YOUCAT Helps My Children and Me

You may have missed the fracus a few years back when I killed Santa Claus, but his memory still lives on. In our house now, “Santa” means “unexpected gifts from Mom and Dad.” This past Christmas, see, Santa gave each of my children a copy of the new Youth Cathechism, also known as the YOUCAT.

To Become Technically and Tactically Proficient

One of the characteristics of the Catholic Church that appealed to me right away was that not only does the Church teach the importance of strategy, but she also recognizes the importance of tactics. And like the Marine Corps, the Church Militant produces field manuals teaching and relating the effective use of both strategy and tactics. All of which are based on her actual experience gained in fighting, and winning,  spiritual wars. [Read more…]

Another Catholic Blogger You Should Follow

Fellow Patheos Catholic Portal blogger Max Lindenman sings the praises of Joanne McPortland, and you know what? So will I. Not that you need my approval or anything, but you have my express permission to follow her blog, which she christened Egregious Twaddle, and just recently broke out of mothballs. [Read more…]

SCOTUS Holds That Warrantless GPS Tracking is Unconstitutional UPDATED

Once again, I heartily endorse the wisdom of the Founding Fathers and their radical concept of separation of powers. Huzzah!

All nine justices of the Supreme Court ruled on Monday that police officers violated the Fourth Amendment rule against unreasonable search and seizure when they attached a GPS device to a suspect’s car and tracked it for 28 days without a warrant. But the court was split down the middle on the reasoning. Four justices focused on the physical trespass that occurred when the police attached the device, four focused on the violation of the suspect’s “reasonable expectation of privacy,” and the final justice, Sonia Sotomayor, endorsed both theories.

Go read the rest. Now, if the Justices would turn their attentions back to the question of the constitutionality of the Patriot Act, the Founders would stop rolling over in their graves.

UPDATE: A friend of mine sends: “Here’s the full text of the ruling for super-nerds,” to which I’ll add for all you sea-lawyers.

Sign the Petition for the “Life At Conception Act” UPDATED

“Crazy” must run in the Paul family or something. Or is that “keraaayyyzy?” Either way, it’s probably a good thing. You know, back on Saturday, the Gospel Reading was one of the shortest you’ll ever hear being read at mass. It was from Mark’s Gospel. Did you see it? [Read more…]
