For The Natural Law and a Pile of Shoes

Crisis Magazine has an essay written by Jason Jones that you will want to read, wherein he has a movie recommendation that you will probably want to follow up on too. Who’s Jason Jones? He was the Executive Producer of the film Bella which came out in 2006. Guess where the photograph above was taken? Your cursor will tell you. [Read more...]

Because of the Twilight Zone Episode that My Country Has Become UPDATED

How’s that for an answer to “Why I Am Catholic,” dear reader? Here, I’ll say it again: because of the Twilight Zone episode my country has become. Because when lifesaving care can be denied to your child because of mental handicaps, or physical disabilities, you know, for the good of the herd (or is it for the good of Mammon?), that’s when you realize how our disrespect for human dignity has turned our world over to monsters.

My Inner Southerner Git’s A Holt of the Laptop. Look Out!


Warning: What you are about to read should be done so with your mind’s best approximation of a Southern, Hillbilly from Tennessee (read, “Tannersee“) accent. Don’t say you weren’t warned. :)

Thank God for Truth Telling Fools

Like Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert. Because nowadays, evidently, only satirical comedy shows can provide the low-down on what our Ruling Elites are up to. Like this quickie you never saw on the Sunday Morning Talking Heads shows. Besides, Brian Williams isn’t allowed to analyze news. Not like this, anyway. [Read more...]

A Quick Primer on Politics, Circa 1936

As Decision 2012 looms before us, and as we are asked by all the candidates to please check our brains at the door, I’m happy to share a video that serves both as a wake-up call, as well as to the fact that there is, as my friend Qoheleth said many moons ago, nothing new under the sun.

Thoughts On Politics From the Bastion of Catholic Social Commentary
