Little Sisters of the Poor: Doing Godís Work. Fighting Goliath
http://www.patheos.com ^ | January 9, 2014 | Rebecca Hamilton

The Little Sisters of the Poor, the stand up nuns who’ve taken on the Obama administration over the HHS Mandate, are a bunch of tough customers.

I mean that in the best understanding of the word “tough.” Providing frail elderly people with loving care on a 24/7 basis is work that would make the average Navy Seal turn weak in the knees.

When I say 24/7, I mean twenty-four hours, right around the clock; every single day, right around the calendar. Caring for a frail elderly person is more demanding in a lot of ways than caring for a toddler. They are both sweet, precious and strong-minded. The differences are that the toddler isn’t always trying to die on you, and they don’t have a memory of having once been a strong, independent adult.

When this Fraud of a “President” takes on the Little Sisters of the Poor he deserves to be put out of Office.
How anyone treats the most vulnerable tells you who they really ARE. I remember when a congressman called Obama a liar. The congressman was accused for not respecting the Office. After Obama and the racist in charge of the DOJ decided tto muscle the little Sisters of the poor He destroyed any respect for the OFFICE. The words that come to mind for me, about Obama, would make a sailor Blush.

Who do these creeps pick on? The most defenseless. Nuns and the unborn.

You can't make up this kind of cartoonish villiany.

Yet half of the population can't see these people for who they are. Truly frightening.

A Brilliant Prophecy From 93 Years Ago
H. L. Mencken (born 1880 - died 1956) was a journalist, satirist, critic, and Democrat . He wrote this editorial while working for the Baltimore Evening Sun, which appeared in the July 26, 1920 edition.

“As democracy is perfected, the office of the President represents, more and more closely, the inner soul of the people. On some great and glorious day, the plain folks of the land will reach their heart’s desire at last and the White House will be occupied by a downright fool and complete narcissistic moron.”

- - - H. L. Mencken, The Baltimore Evening Sun, July 26, 1920

So it was written and so it has come to pass.
