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.

For Your Good Friday Night at the Movies

Chesterton’s beloved character named Father Brown, I gave it a look and enjoyed this episode immensely. I think you may enjoy it too. [Read more…]

A Petulant POTUS, or an All-Powerful Genie?

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.

For Your Lenten Friday Night at the Movies V

This is the year of seeing films I have never seen before. Last week, we saw Richard Burton and Jean Simmons in The Robe. And in the weeks previously, we’ve watched St. Ralph, and The Mighty Macs too. So aside from The Musketeers double feature, every film this year has been a first time view for me.

Tonight is no exception. [Read more…]

For Your Lenten Friday Night At The Movies IV

I’ve said it once, and I’ll say it again. One of the best things I like about doing this Lenten movies series is seeing films that I’ve never seen before, but I should have. I never got around to it, as I was too busy conquering (ha!) the world, or maybe I was on deployment overseas. [Read more…]
