Practice makes perfect.....post on....
Here is my example with WFTD.
No pushing at the door please!
Not to be confused with recent WFTD inequity. The obams is all about both inequity AND iniquity.
This one’s too easy:
The Obama administration’s iniquity has been emboldened in recent years as they shed their “kinder, gentler” moniker for a more in-your-face version of socialism.
A+++ yes, this Administration is a virtual catalogue of iniquities. and you’re right, it is mindboggling how fast it has transitioned to unabashed, in your face, imposition of their will. The LGBT stuff is being mandated gov’t-wide. i sent xsbro one of my ofc emails and his response was, you need to find a new job and get out of that effing hole! i don’t think the private sector is any picnic either, as Brendan Eich can attest.
I have one cat that has to stay indoors, but the other one has to stay outside.
The first is my Inny Kitty, the other is my Outy Kitty.
The White House, is the Den of Iniquity, whereas, the Preener-in-Chief emits the Din of Inquity.
ok, that was kind of cute... ; ) A+++
I admit... it was a stretch.
Most HR busybodies are making “diversity” a mandate in their corporations. I work in the private sector and can tell you that it makes me sick how we’re supposed to celebrate everyone’s “diversity” while those of us who are here to work are sickened by the rampant displays of depravity even in our own work areas.
It used to be that someone could get fired, on the spot, for looking at pornography on the job, but now it’s something for which they’ll “coach” the offender, esp. if it was gay porn. Ugh!
your efforts are always appreciated : ) i’m just happy when i “get” them!
During this holy season, we are called to repent from our iniquity, and come to Holy Confession!
The time to come to Confession is growing short, since Lazarus Saturday and Palm Sunday are this weekend. If you haven’t been to Confession, go now!!!!
To equal Obama’s iniquity
One needn’t go back to antiquity
Against Stalin or Hitler
Little Barry is littler
But he’s everywhere, King of Ubiquity
The path of the righteous man is beset on all sides by the iniquities of the selfish and the tyranny of evil men. Blessed is he, who in the name of charity and good will, shepherds the weak through the valley of darkness, for he is truly his brother’s keeper and the finder of lost children.
And I will strike down upon thee with great vengeance and furious anger those who would attempt to poison and destroy my brothers. And you will know my name is the Lord when I lay my vengeance upon thee.
Hopefully Samuel L Jackson will keep that in mind....when he visits the Den @1600 Penn.
Another really, really good one Truthy. Is it finally Spring up there?
Good morning. I’m writing from CA where my mother is on her deathbed, I’m sad to relate. We went to Mass at a different Catholic church yesterday. QUITE INTERESTING! I write more about that later on.
Please pray for my mom and for me, as I have a lot of details to handle and really no clue. Naturally, Mom left no instructions, but she is/was a strong-minded woman. Lack of “orders” from her has put me in a quandary as to what arrangements I should make.
Thanks. It’s supposed to be in the 50s here in northern NJ, even touching the 60s this week, so, yes, spring is here.
Yankees home opener is this afternoon. Chance of some rain. Blocks of frozen ice and snow were still visible as late as last week.
it is extremely disheartening. xshub was very attuned to the story, bc as a conservative at the head of a nonpartisan organization (made up of mostly liberals), it struck him that it is something that could potentially happen to him.
Went last week! A+++
