    As far as Governors go, I’d be okay, for sure, with Walker of Wisconsin, Perry from Texas.

    But for me....two words:

    TED CRUZ

    It’s my story and I’m sticking to it.

    Seriously.

    There’s the Freddie’s fashion mart, the Tawana Brawley....of course this regime is supporting the man.

    and the Democrats don’t approach him about this? the Republicans are too mum?

    I know nobody watches MSNBC but they are doing everything to get Sharpton out there....he works for the Islamonuts as I figure.

    With the Lamestream media help, of course. this whole cop thing is nothing but an attempt to make the cops hesitate when black men commit crimes. Then convert them all to Muslims and boom, they capture us all locally, force our daughters to wear BURQUAS.

    ISIS in America, being built before our very eyes as the Republicans do nothing and the Democrats are long gone.

    It’s just the weirdest thing. Comcast has changed its channel for NBC which used to be 211. Now you get a message that it’s on 911.

    say what?

    And when you key in “911” you get a message that NBC is not available. Somehow I got it on an 800 channel but hey, I heard rumors that NBC needs to drop Sharpton....big things going on at NBC.

    Comcast owns NBC.

    I’m jus’ sayin’.

    At least Meet the Press is being current. They got a guy on talking about the police situation. And Chuck Todd did have an update on that missing airplane.

    I don’t much like cops. Everytime I get involved with one, and it is seldom as I am mostly law-abiding, I get into trouble. But I was once married to a Baltimore motorcycle cop so I know the dangers they face.

    It’s just that anymore they have these huge tanks and shields that a police force now looks like an army battalion anymore. and let’s not forget that they love to shoot dogs.

    I’m watching all this and it ain’t rocket science that Obama is pushing Al Sharpton and his ilk....at least until next year when MAYBE the Republicans will end all this rogue governance.

    Do any of the Democrats ever go to this guy and tell them to put an end to it? Where did this character DeBlasio come from and doesn’t he want to govern his city?

    Once upon a time I used to put up my Blog posts on the personal page but not all that awful. I do not need FreeRepublic readers to my Blog....I’ve got plenty.

    In fact I shut down a Blog for the traffic, which scared me.

    Okay, let me calm down. I watched that cop’s funeral yesterday. As a news/political junkee I am currently on withdrawal as this holiday span goes on and on.

    Also got a plane missing this morning...my eyes are on it.

    Have consulted experts on Muncheussen syndrome...now called “Factitious Disorder”....ie, using a play on words....the FACTS are, ahem, FICTION.

    Next year....will be on Dr. Phil....will write a book (got some legal and psychiatric experts willing to work with me). There’s a whole community of people out there all faking diseases and using our medical system to give them sympathy and happiness. Living in a country with pretty good health care....at least for now....and a country where sympathy is abundant cause Americans will sympathize about anything, even give away money....this makes the Factitious disorder people plentiful.

    I am going to expose them all.

    Anyway....anybody else watch the funeral yesterday? Any observations, opinions?

    So I went to church yesterday, again as the choir did not sing today. We DID sing on Christmas Eve, on this, the worst Christmas season ever for our choir….EVER!

    For those that don’t know, a precious member of our choir died right before Christmas, succumbing to cancer of the jaw and after enduring a year of pain and a totally disfigured face….Lord that was hard to watch.

    So he passes and we go to the funeral mass and the priest, during the communion, drops down dead, straight out dead, dead before he hit the floor.

    Okay, that’s all behind though note that our choir Christmas party was cancelled because you can’t use the parish life center for under 80 people, shouldn’t the church employee who booked this have known that? I had the choir Christmas party at my house last year, we sang at a nursing home, it was great….this year….nothing.

    So I am sitting at the 4:30 mass with my 4:30 mass seatmate-a book club friend who did not attend the mass when Father Mark died. This is important. She did, of course, know about Father Mark’s sudden death during mass.

    One of the ladies, a trustee of the church in fact, I know her well….as she was giving communion….I am not making this up...SHE DROPPED DOWN LIMP AND DEAD IN THE SAME PLACE THAT FATHER MARK DIED!

    I saw her collapse, though I wasn’t as close as I’d been to Father Mark, that time singing with the choir for my choir mate’s funeral mass please recall.

    My knees buckled and I grabbed my seat mate in panicked desperation.

    “I can’t go through this again,” I stage-whispered.

    And I couldn’t. Every human being has their limits. My mind went haywire.

    So the singing stops and panic, panic. The already consecrated communion wine was spilled all over the floor. People get towels et al to sop up the liquid, people gather round the lady….this goes on for over ten minutes. My mind was somewhere else, somewhere in a crazy place.

    Our dear Lord could not, HE JUST COULD NOT, do this to quiet little St. Jude the Apostle church in Lewes, Delaware, could he?

    As it would turn out the trustee lady did NOT die. In fact she didn’t even faint. Evidently she tripped. They managed to hoist her up and of course they called an ambulance. She’s alive though….and will be okay so I am to understand.

    While this was going on, and as I shook and shivered, angry...yes I was, at a God who took my choir mate so cruelly, a God who allowed our priest to drop dead in His house, and now He kills the trustee? Again, in the church? Don’t lecture me. I know I was wrong but I was terribly distraught.

    While all this commotion was going on, and as my seatmate tried to calm me by joking that perhaps I was the bad luck one. Heh. Well me and about over a hundred other people who were in mass the day Father Mark died.

    So I told her my story as they desperately tried to mop up the spilled consecrated blood of Christ.

    Father Mark, as I have ascertained since his death, knew he had tricky heart valves, this I learned after his death and at my choirmate’s funeral luncheon. The next step was a heart transplant the medicos told him. Father Mark was only 63...a year younger than me.

    So I told my seatmate that Father Mark said a prayer to God and asked for certain stipulations should his heart suddenly quit.

    My seatmate is listening to me, her eyes wide, lights flashing everywhere, people running. But she listens to my story.

    I told her that Father Mark asked God that if he was to die suddenly, he would like it to be with no pain and no warning. Which he did. The man was dead before he hit the floor. Literally.

    My seatmate smiles….she nods her head, encourages me to go on.

    I told her that he asked God if he was to drop dead suddenly, please make it during a mass at the church he had served so well for over twelve years.

    My seatmate’s eyes get wider, she smiles. “I’d go with it,” she said.

    “Also,” I continued as chaos went on around me, “Father Mark asked that his last words be “Body of Christ”...seatmate’s eyes get wider, she smiles a bittersweet smile, if there is such a thing.

    “Oh,” I continued as the chaos at the alter continued. “And he asked God if it could be at a funeral mass where the people were already sad, this to save a happy Sunday congregation from despair.”

    My seatmate is now smiling, hugging me, telling me I got it right.

    “And don’t forget about last rites!” I told her. “Father Mark was right in church and he had last rites toot de sweet. If ever a priest’s death was “perfect” it was Father Mark’s.”

    Did you know a deacon can give last rites?

    The trustee was removed, the consecrated wine covered with white vestments and time came to receive communion.

    Meanwhile my Munchausen nut job of a daughter spent the prior night at the local ER. First, she loves ER’s and second, well her fingers were turning numb. That’s worth a trip to the ER, right?

    Turns out she has carpel tunnel syndrome.

    Anybody thinks they’re going to write a story of my strange life that God has some kind of plan for me, forget about it.

    In 2015 I am writing the book.

    PS-proving it’s a small world, a very close relative of my deceased choir mate contacted me...VIA FREEPMAIL as he evidently reads this very forum. THAT was a real treat. Hiya Mr. R…..coming back to Delaware yet?

    I am listening to Rubio on Meet the Press and he makes sense.

    Maybe it’s too simple a solution, but why can’t America supply arms and money to the pro-democracy groups in Cuba? Goodness this is done all over the world. You mean America can’t turn Cuba into a democracy, whatever it takes?

    I know the words are simple and the deed is way more complicated....but since the eyes of the world are now on Cuba maybe it’s time to do something.

    A leader for President....oops, Rubio just slipped in that he’s thinking about running for President....would be dealing with Cuba to bring a democracy to a country that could be so vibrant....so great. Wonderful beaches, great tobacco.

    Yet we stand by and let this tiny nothing burger of a country wreak all this havoc all over the world?

    There’s got to be a better way.

    I’m quite sure Rubio will ride this thing and hey, he really should. Makes him sound way wiser than Jeb.

    I really don’t want to see Jeb nominated but it’s like the final Perfect Storm.

    Either the Tea Party does what you suggest, and that’s back one and only ONE candidate.

    How about Ted Cruz?

    If not, throw the gauntlet down and see where it lands. I will NEVER vote for Jeb Bush and I suspect I’m not alone.

    Maybe us Tea Party types need to realize we don’t have the numbers or organization and accept the GOP elite choices for us.

    I don’t want that, but maybe it’s time.

    Ah, back in the day.

    I LOVED John Kennedy and adored JAckie.

    Yeah, I know history has changed my view of things but JFK did stand up to Russia and it was really scary.

    JFK was a reprobate with the ladies, I know, and he really, really messed up that Bay of Pigs.

    But he was the ONLY Kennedy that ever did anything considered leadership; the rest of them just rode his coattails.

    I’m still not convinced that this Cuban embargo is the best thing at this point in time....

    My goodness I am so glad you brought up the history of Cuba.

    Don’t know how old the rest of you are, but I remember the tragic Bay of Pigs, the Cuban blockade, the Cuban Missile crisis. Cuba’s has the advantage of being real close to America and that is its claim to fame.

    Even I, who lived through all this and remember hiding under my desk in Catholic school when the sirens went off, am confused as to what our embargo is doing, if good...or NOT.

    I’ve got an idea....the Republicans maybe take a stand. Now I know that Rubio is but come on! Those guys need to get out and blast this administration and the cop-killings they are causing, they need to make the argument against this Cuban thing, if there is one cause I’ll be honest, I’m not so sure buying cigars from Cuba would be such a bad thing.

    I know, it’s the same old, same old, expecting leadership from the GOP elite.

    Indeed that incident was covered extensively on Fox News Sunday.

    And how about that Jeb Bush?

    Lookit, I think Jeb Bush should run, as I have decided.

    Cause it’s time for the nasty decrepit Tea Party to finally take a stand. And Jeb Bush will be the stand because I know of no one besides the Blue Blood GOP Elite who like this guy.

    Yes I understand that there’s the Tea Party and then there’s all the money from the Chamber of Commerce, et al. And I know the twain does not meet.

    I say let Jeb run and the Tea Party types will go somewhere else, I can almost guarantee it.

    Either we have the votes...or NOT.

    Give that nomination to Jeb Bush and we shall see.

    Should Jeb win, with his support of that communistic Common Core and immigration reform....then the Tea Party should just shut up.

    I don’t think he has a chance.

    Always one of my most puzzling questions is why on earth someone would come onto a thread and waste their precious time mocking the thread’s theme.

    What’s your point Raybbr?

    We know they are all fakes on these shows, that they repeat talking points provided to them.

    However those provided talking points are signs of where the various political parties, administrations, PAC’s...etc....will be going on certain issues in the upcoming week.

    Nobody much likes John McCain here and that man got himself boxed into defending Feinstein and her lying piece of crap. But somebody sends McCain up there to speak on behalf of the Republican party and I want to know what their stance is.

    Morning AB, ALL.

    Am NOT singing this morning because everyone in the choir is sick. Also choir Christmas party cancelled. Last year we had a really nice party...AT MY HOUSE! We also sang for a local nursing home, something else I arranged.

    This year somebody else, someone I don’t especially like, our resident choir diva, planned the Christmas party, no singing at the nursing home.....and NOTHING HAPPENED!

    Heh.

    Anyway, is nice to be home. My daughter still has Muncheussens. Her latest thing is to wear a turban type thing on her head to look like she is receiving chemotherapy. I also see her hair thinning in the front and I think she’s intentionally pulling it out.

    THAT story goes on and if it ain’t funny it’s freaking sad as all get out. Not to worry....maybe I’ll tell you my plan to “cure” this girl as I’ve been consulting with many experts. This Muncheussen thing is not as rare as you might think. In fact, there are entire communities of these people and they are costing YOU, the taxpayer, a fortune.

    Anyway it’s good to be home on a Sunday, cooking and writing posts and so I shall.

    Right now I am still reeling from those cops shot in cold blood. Our President inadvertently caused that murder.

    What a horrible country this has become in terms of race relations. Obama didn’t improve a damn thing on that front.

    Anyway, should be an interesting talk show Sunday.

    I think your suggestion is cruel and unusual punishment, you should be ashamed.

    Next I suppose you think he should be deprived of sleep and forced to listen to Taylor Swift songs all day.

    Dick Cheney wins Sunday political talk show guest of week, disdains comparison of CIA to Japanese during WWII. Then guess who compares CIA to Japanese during WWII? Hint, he’s from Cheney’s own political party. All the lowdown nice and condensed for yon reader by The Wise I.

    So another priest in the Wilmington diocese has died and another was called home to be with a dying father. Presiding priest at mass this morning announced about the advent penance service was this coming Wednesday and he didn’t care how many more priests died the service would go on.

    “If I have to pronounce universal absolution I shall do so,” he muttered and the congregation kind of giggled.

    We’re all still hurting a little bit over the death of a priest during a parishioner’s memorial service, of all things, but we’re healing.

    A couple in a class I led over a Catholic book the parish sponsored stopped by to say to me. I told them I was the mass when Father Mark passed and they shrugged, offered their experience with Father Mark.

    “If you gonna go, that’s the way I’d wanna do it,” the husband said with a tight smile.

    Well Father Mark did just, boom, drop dead, literally before he hit the floor and yeah, we all decided that’s how we wanna go.

    Father Jim, today’s mass presider, made us smile tight smiles again with his gauntlet tossed down that damn the dead priests, penance would go on!

    Meanwhile, way I figure, Father MArk’s up in heaven (I was told by somebody that priests go right to heaven, do not pass go) laughing that he died the best possible way, no pain, directly in a church, during a memorial service already in process. Said memorial service being for a co-choir mate and now Father Mark-who also could carry a tune- and Merle are in heaven singing away.

    Anyway, just an anecdote, yon reader should insert smile here. Thanks for indulging me.

    Watching Karl Rove now on Fox News Sunday-on DVR-....I don’t trust that guy as far as I can throw him. and you know he’s all cbusy promoting ole Jeb Bush, dontcha?

    Morning AB, All....

    Singing at the 10 am mass this morn so I am leaving soon.

    Not much going on here, thank goodness. Boring is better than emotional chaos.

    As always, thank you AB for doing this thread, thank all yon commenters for your wisdom.

    Will be back later...still trying to wrap my mind around those guys in the GOP and why on earth they approved that budget.

    Thus I will be watching the talk shows closely this morn.

    My man Rush Limbaugh blows them away on Fox News Sunday. Wife of Eric Garner tells it like it was. Mayor de Blasio continues to throw cops under the bus. Much more.

    Morning AB, All...

    Just got back from singing at 10am mass.

    Yesterday sang at Father Mark’s memorial mass.

    Tomorrow night singing at The Immaculate Conception Mass.

    Last Monday sang at co-choirmate Merle’s mass, who died of cancer of the jaw. Father Mark died DURING Merle’s memorial mass.

    Wrote a tribute to Father Mark and a parishioner complained, wrote on my Delaware Blog.

    so I took it down.

    Yesterday was Kaitlyn’s birthday party and also Father Mark’s memorial mass.

    Had a new priest this morning to substitute for Father Mark.

    If I seem like I’m lost in my words....forgive me. It’s been a whirtwind week and let’s forget my Muncheussen daughter REALLY has something on her ovaries, some kind of cyst needs to be removed but Muncheussen, people. It’s all medicine, ER rooms, this doctor, that doctor.

    Hell last week I went to my own doctor once every six months. Lost four pounds, all labs good. Hell I seem to be the only one around that is healthy.

    thank you AB for doing this thread....be patient with me. My emotions are raw.

    But I’m okay.
