Well, you swiped my sentence.

Obama seems to thimk that his purview over matters in the USA is much larger than the Constitution allows.

You're my first student today. I'm glad you got "pay purview" out of the way early. It was my first thought as well.

Purview

Purview is what my cat sees. If you say that would be purrview...my cat doesn’t really put his heart into it so he never really purrs or meows, it’s just a slightly squinted indifferent gaze, a truncated pur, a wheezy me, me, and a quiet ow as he walks away.

He does have one good quality.....he ain’t twins.

Good game last night. The Bruins had the 2-0 shutout going for about 55 minutes. Then the Penguins broke the dam and scored 3 times to win.

It is 58 and sunny-supposed to be nice here for all of spring break week-have a great trip and visit-

Obama thinks the current mess
Is only in his personal purview
Whenever he can use the media
To give him a high five or two

He claims he had nothing to do
With stopping the tours and such
Of OUR house, but a few memos
Prove he did at least that much

He called for the closing of parks
And for threats of tainted meat-
But now, some whistleblowers will
Make sure he has pure crow to eat...

All this childishness of holding taxpayers for ransom by ruining everything to make them pay is a bit like that old phrase attributed to some Caledonian chieftan about (I think) the Roman general Agricola and his slash and burn warfare-they make a desert and call it peace...

I have to laugh when the gay Shep carries on about a younger more progressive Pope.....little does he know God has a firm hand on His Church. It was never going to happen.

I am thrilled with Pope Francis.......knew I would be.

St. Francis told the Pope in his time that the Church needed to be reformed......and Pope Francis would know that and more....I suspect that the progressives will not be pleased with just what he will reform.

Seems this guy came in second to Pope Benedict last time around.

It seems there is already some Catholic bashing going on on a thread I saw-that is disheartening.

Mr. T5 went to a Jesuit school, and my favorite prof in college was a Jesuit-he was no liberal, in the sense of the word I understand, but he did advise questioning everything and believed we should all aggressively spread the word of God. He was called a militant by a lot of people who didn’t like his views.

I’d like to see Nancy Pelosi and CINOs like her who are public figures and advocate abortion get publicly called out and threatened with excommunicatuion, but I guess I’m dreaming...,

The media doesn’t know much about the Jesuits if they think that-the order was, I think started by a soldier-sort of like Bishop Germanus of Britain in the 5th century, who was a retired general-he was a militant, a questioner and educator, too.

I think the left is hoping for a liberal like some professor from a Jesuit college in America.....well, he is a Jesuit from Latin America, NOT here. Argentina is 97% Catholic...a lot more conservative than American universities.

Twitterworld is upset that Pope Francis opposes abortion and gay marriage......what did the not expect him to be Catholic?
