Howdy folks. This is a mighty wild ride, and let me tell you, the FoC is a rockin’ and rollin’! But the reason I’m calling you in mid-flight is this: I just wanted to thank each one of you who have signed, or shared, or posted the little link that shows the Administration that we believe in the First Amendment, and the whole rest of the Constitution.

Verily, The Catholic Cradle Doth Rock

Have you seen Junior’s grades? Heh. Yeah, I have.

You know I love “the Kid,” Marc Barnes, right? If you weren’t aware of that, you are now.

Here is his An Open Letter To President Obama Concerning Recent Tyranny (With Pictures). It reads like the video below sounds, which is to say, AWESOME! [Read more...]

The HHS Mandate: Now it’s Personal.
