Irony Alert! Ron Paul Press Release Misses Obvious

Our hero since 1988…

Need more proof that Ron Paul is Cyber Monday (huge on the internet, but small in the ballot box)? Just check out the latest press release from his campaign HQ. But whatever you do, DO NOT click on the links they provided to Rasmussen in an attempt to verify their claim.

Despite the fact that this man has won no states in any of the Republican primaries, they declare the following…

Janine Turner Speaks Out Against the HHS Mandate

A few weeks ago, I noted that to many women, the HHS Mandate is demeaning. In that post, I shared a video where Gloria Purvis gave a talk that many of you saw, shared, and promptly helped make go viral. [Read more...]

Catholic Leaders On the Sunday Morning News Shows This Easter Morning

In case you missed it, and I know I did, the network news shows this morning decided that Easter Sunday would be a great time to ask some questions that are facing voters this election year. Though I missed the first run of the following two shows, I caught them via the internet and share them with you here to help keep you up to date. Let the reruns begin.

First up is Cardinal Timothy Dolan, who appeared on the CBS Sunday morning stalwart, Face the Nation. He discuss the First Amendment rights of the faithful, though it’s tough to do in the soundbite size time available to him. He tackles the idea that a “wall of separation,” which has risen to prominence in debates regarding the First Amendment, exists between churches and the state. Take a look, [Read more...]

New Memo from the Bishops Says HHS Mandate “Radically Flawed”

From the National Catholic Register yesterday, details of a March 29 memorandum addressing the problems with the HHS Mandate.

The U.S. bishops said that the government’s latest recommendations on its federal contraception mandate fail to address religious-freedom concerns. [Read more...]

A Petulant POTUS, or an All-Powerful Genie?

Here’s hoping he’s both. In the “petulant President” department, John Fund, a writer based in New York, and the author of Stealing Elections: How Voter Fraud Threatens Our Democracy, has a pretty good recap piece over at National Review Online from this weeks’ Presidential Follies regarding the Litigator-in-Chiefs’ constitutional law gaffs.

What follows is the part of Funds’ piece that hits home with me, [Read more...]

POTUS, SCOTUS, Healthcare law, the HHS Mandate, the Bishops and Catholic Social Teaching. Oh My!

When you have a post with a title with two acronyms, a healthcare law, a bureaucratic mandate, the USCCB, and the Social Doctrine of the Church, you have to be prepared for one thing, and one thing only: not pleasing everyone.

That’s why this is an interesting time to live, see? And it’s Holy Week too? [Read more...]

Earl Scruggs, Requescat In Pace

What is the happiest sounding instrument in the world? Hands down, my vote goes to the banjo. And one of the greatest players of the banjo of all time has been called home. Yes, we have lost Earl Scruggs, and I for one am saddened by this news. But not for long, see? Because Earl wouldn’t put up with me wearing the long face for too long.

The Associated Press relates the news to us as follows, [Read more...]

Cardinal Dolan on the O’Reilly Factor’s “No Spin Zone” and an Idea to Get Him on Comedy Central Too.

Rocco Palmo scooped this up first, naturally, and it’s fantastic.


Wasn’t that awesome? Bravo Zulu.

But while Rocco waxes euphoric about our favorite USCCB quarterback getting seen by over 3 million (mostly conservative) viewers on Bill O’Reilly’s show, I’m thinking His Excellency should take his show on the road, and head over to Comedy Central and pick up the other viewers too. He should make appearances where the rest of the viewers, including liberals and independents, are: [Read more...]

The Bishops Decide to Fight On…

Call it the “recalibration we can believe in,” breaking news from the Bishop’s Administrative Committee,

Bishops Promise To Continue ‘Vigorous Efforts’ Against HHS Violations Of Religious Freedom In Health Care Reform Mandate [Read more...]

You Don’t Trust the Bishops Like You Don’t Trust the Stock Market? Eureka!

And in both ways, you are being foolish, and unreasonable. Permit me to explain with the help of an article I saw this morning regarding the fact that most of us have missed the the stock market rally that turned three years old back on March 9th. I’ve got graphs and charts for your entertainment value as well.

But wait a minute, you argue. What gives you the right to analyze our actions in light of something so repellant as the device Mammon uses to weigh, grow, and destroy wealth? I mean, Frank(!), stocks and the market that deals in them are evil, man! Don’t you see that? [Read more...]
