  • Pope mulls crossing U.S.-Mexico border to show solidarity with immigrants

    01/27/2015 11:37:55 AM PST · 19 of 96
    xrmusn to lowbridge

    Guess if given enough ‘lead time’, the little venture could attract 10-20 million more Mexicans or whoever to stroll over the border under the ‘guardianship’ of the Pope.

    I am no longer a practicing Catholic but I have been holding my thoughts of this present Pope, out of respect if nothing else.

    He is starting to get into BO territory when it comes to tolerance - as far as I am concerned.

    Seems to me that as a consumer, I am able to order what you have to sell.
    If you offer variations to your ‘basic menu’, you, as the shop owner should be able to determine what you will or will not construct.

    If you don’t care to ‘construct’ what I want, or demand, I just have to take my business elsewhere.

    The reason I don’t(didn’t) drink in Black Bars, Gay Bars, S&M Bars, etc was I decided I didn’t want to or should just go where I am ‘comfortable’.

    On the other hand, if your ‘biker club’ already has 2 establishments out on the ‘bypass’, why come and disrupt the little club downtown?

    Among others, I belong to the VFW and I do(did) NOT really like people in the place that don’t ‘belong’.

    I do NOT belong to the Moose or Elks or Lions, so why should I expect to demand them to accommodate me?

    To ‘bolster’ membership, the VFW and Legion (among others) have units called ‘Sons of AL’ and the VFW ‘Mens Auxiliary’
    which allow sons of ‘eligible Vets’ to join and use the facilities.

    So now, the same clowns that have been ‘laughing at us for serving’, going right down to the dissidents etc are now sitting in the VFW as a member because there Father or Grandfather or even Son served (I have ‘less’ of a problem allowing the Parents of eligible sons ‘join’).

    To leave what ‘they’ left, proves exactly nothing and if you want to make sure the ‘message’ is intact, leave it as it was.

    I had (not so boldly) ‘predicted’ year or so ago that when the time was ‘right’ BO would say something like ‘I know I cant run again but there is no law saying Michelle can’t run with me by her side and having a hand in EVERY decision’.

    The ‘sheeple’ would gobble it up...why waste time and money with a Senatorial run, just go for the BRASS RING right from the gitgo.

    However, I will probaby back off that above statement as his last few actions have been ‘against his base’ BUT he still has a good 18 months to ‘sort of’ rectify it.

    Sorry, we just have ourselves to ‘blame’.

    We (me included) basically stood by and watch the transformation of the Military and its Mission and ‘filling of the ranks’.

    I think a lot of us figured “let them have their fun now, when the SHTF the REAL Soldiers will stand up and save us from ourselves”

    Problem is that between being ‘driven’ out for no more than NOT accepting this malarky and not being able to recruit the ‘virile’ youth that had held the Military together, ALSO because of this hostility that has been created.

    Remember, a lot of us that Voluntarily Enlisted - before the draft ended - did so as a matter of ‘duty’ and ‘honor’ and because it was the ‘right thing to do’.

    I joined at 17 to more or less get it ‘over with’ prior to being drafted in a couple of years. Also, the prevailing attitude was ‘it was the right thing to do’.

    Of all of Clintons Fractured comparisons, His ‘Yes, I am a ‘draft dodger’ BUT so were thousands who enlisted to ‘avoid the draft’....

    NOT a quote but a generalized comment he supposedly made, while in a sense very true BUT definitely the ‘bottom line’ was taken out of context.

    Another of his great lines was “I was NEVER alone with Miss Lewinski in the White House...there was always a guard or something somewhere in the building.....

    From my ‘early learnings’ etc of the RCC, I have broken three of the ‘biggies’, which did not offer a ‘do over’.

    No, I still feel the RCC is NOT the Church it was when I was an Altar Boy or attended through Ninth Grade.

    I definitely do NOT like the English Mass(I know one can be found that does Latin), I do NOT like the Lay Communion Services, the Touchy/Feely (that may have been that particular Church but....)

    And though I would benefit from the relaxation of Marrying outside the Church and subsequent Divorce..

    I guess when I got ‘reinstated’ they must have figured that I had not been married for that 43 years(well 30 at the time) and, to be honest, I was quite taken aback by their acceptance. (I had not been Divorced at the time).

    As far as I am concerned, it has changed far too much, as far as I am concerned....

    Strictly facetious, not meaning to insult, denigrate or blaspheme ANYONE BUT

    If, tomorrow AM, I say that I am GOD because I say I am God, does that mean I can go to all churches and pick up the collection baskets in person?

    I was away for awhile (30 some years) and when I ‘came back’ it turns out ‘we’ had gone away from the Latin Mass, ‘Civilians’ were administering Holy Communion, (I ‘waited’ for the Priest and someone had the gall to mention to me that there were ‘rumors’ about the Priest and who knew where his hands/fingers may have been), there was a ‘group hug’ long about the Offertory and I ‘declared’ it wasn’t the RCC I knew and I now ‘tend to myself’.

    Maybe I wasn’t ‘ready’ or really wanted to come back but it definitely wasn’t what I was expecting.

    The behavior of a handful of Priests ‘upset’ me and it was funny how people who had absolutely NO IDEA of how back when I was a kid how Parents ‘willfully’ turned us over to the Priests and Nuns, anyone going home and complaining about ‘unGodly’ behavior, would not have been believed.

    I NEVER had a ‘problem’ and it was before the trouble really began, but I can understand that with the ‘pressure’ coming from Both ends, how a kid could become very confused, especially an insecure and/or vulnerable one.

    People ‘get on’ Gates because of his out of country support etc but don’t forget a while back he was willing to work with officials to put computers in EVERY school - eventually got turned down, one of the reasons given it would give him an unfair advantage to train people on his equipment....

    Of course when the local Ford Dealer gives the school district cars for Driver Ed, isn’t part of the reasoning that maybe the trainee will eventually buy a Ford because he likes the feel of it?

    How about that Korman(??) fund for cancer - specifically breast cancer - giving BIG donations to PP and/or - directly or indirectly to Abortion clinics.

    Kind of a crappy deal if you think your money is going to cancer research and it ends up going to ‘other’ outlets.

    If you don’t need it for what is was solicited for, stop soliciting.....

    You want to argue with me about it when you need to be arguing about it with Bush, Cheney, and Rove.

    All three of them have said there were no WMDs.

    After the fact they may have admitted.

    Rest assured they had been informed or strongly believed WMD’s were present.

    If they knew for a ‘FACT’ there were no WMD’s, we surely would have found enough to justify the actions we took.

    Definitely.

    Just saw a ‘Breaking News Headline’ (Washington(DC) Times) that DB is calling for calm and a suspension of the protests till after the Funerals.

    Kind of sitting on that fence isn’t he?

    These ‘asswipes’ (at least an asswipe is a useful tool) can’t even ‘Lead from Behind’.

    Every day the WH and DOJ allow this BS to go on, the harder it will be to put an end to it.

    ‘They’ are not going to end it on their own.. I still contend that the ‘Wall Street BS’ last year was just a warmup for this latest round, last year being just to see where they could disrupt the most before someone went up longside someones head.

    Then the Ferguson thing was drawn out till it was allowed to ‘set up’ and give them time to get everything in place for the NYC thing...WHICH, if they hadn’t tied Brown and tried with Zimmerman they may have gotten a lot of sympathy from the ‘unwashed masses’ - especially when the NY thing could be eased away from the death and BLAME it on the over zealousness of collecting revenue....

    People look at the real Martin and Brown and figure they would have done something also if either one of those ‘angels’ had accosted them.

    This NY thing would have gained more sympathy as his family isn’t a bunch of loser radicals, Garner was just a guy trying to put something on the table - at least he was home and attempting to survive - BLAME the draconian taxes and you have a sympathetic character.

    Martin and Brown are/were/will no more - be thugs, plain and simple.

    The way this idiot (DB) is acting, I am sure it wouldn’t take much for someone else to ‘do the deed’ and if you can get him, the Commish and Cuomo all in the same ‘target area’, it would be considered a ‘plus’ by many.

    THEN, we would be saying “It is stupid for him to show up AND all 3 to be standing in the same ‘target of opportunity’ zone.

    “I took it from my _________’s girlfriend/boyfriend/babydaddy/whoever so I could turn it in to my Teach... You know, like that lady says in the movie we show in school”

    Thinking about it, probably a good idea for people in NYC and areas where the ferals are revolting (Of course they are revolting!!! Haven’t had a bath in 3 weeks)to keep their hands where they can be seen when in the proximity of ANY Policeman....

    If these ‘dummies’ - whose target is supposedly WHITE Policemen don’t know the difference IN BROAD DAYLIGHT between a White Cop and a Spanish and an Asian they we all may be in for a rough time.

  • Ferguson: Riot or Rebellion?

    xrmusn to Stepan12

    I was well aware of the riots in NYC during the Civil War.
    The ‘working class’ Irish were sorta ‘pulling’ for the South because they figured the stoop and manual labor they were performing would go to the Black if they were to ‘invade’ NYC.

    Where History doesn’t ‘serve’ the Blacks (well, teach them) is that SLAVERY was NOT invented in 1800 because rich White Cotton Farmers didn’t want to or wouldn’t let WHITES pick the cotton so they heard about these ‘Darkies’ in Africa and figured it was good cheap labor. Would imagine the Chamber of Commerce had something to do with that also.

    Now, ‘they’ neglect to inform the Blacks that slavery went back to breathing and in the 1800’s version - Blacks were selling Blacks to the Highest bidder.

    That ‘clown Congressman’ that fabricated the slave trade routes as being STILL populated with the sharks with a taste for ‘dark’ meat as the Slave Traders would just randomly throw the passengers overboard. Also it was a well known fact that the White owners of the Slaves were hanging and beating beyond recognition all the time, in fact made sport of it. (’THEY’ also neglect to point out that the slaves on the ships were bought and paid for by the ships Captains or agents were aboard....The Slave owners - as well as the Shippers, would be damn fools to not do anything to keep the ‘help’ well fed, nourished and in shape, as their only ‘value’ was the ability to be sold or toil in the fields.

    I am NOT trying to say it was a picnic etc but all ‘new’ groups in this country started at the bottom and worked their way up by either ‘mingling’ with other groups and adopting their names etc or just start their own schools etc.

    When it came to the Civil War, the Irish were merely trying to protect their own turf.. Face it, when it is ALL you have or can expect to get, it isn’t so bad and even worth fighting over....

    They need some kind of job action involving Police, Fire, Con Ed(still call it that??) - starting with the mAyors own Security Detail.

    I can conjure up a picture of Sharpton (probably not within a thousand miles) DeBlasio and other bunkered down in Gracie Mansion (did DB finally move in or is it a homeless shelter?)

    Pretty soon it will be time for A Weiner to start campaigning again.

    His slogan can be

    "I WILL SHOW THEM - I WILL SHOW YOU - I WILL SHOW EVERYONE"

    with the promise of free computers to all who don't have one so he can carry out his Campaign Promise....

    These two brave public servants died tragically because Brown and Garner wouldn’t obey the law. Had they done so, these officers and the two perps would still be alive.
    = = = = = = = = = = = =
    I don’t think it would have made any difference. IMNSHO Brown and Garner were just the spark that lit the embers smoldering form the ‘Wall Street’ movement last summer.
    WE allowed the idiots to take over public spaces, throw crap at cops, evict them long enough to CLEAN THE CRAP-on OUR dime-not the ‘rich SOB’s’ that took part and financed them.

    ‘They’ thought they had their spark with a guy named Zimmermann but ‘blew it’ when it turned out he wasn’t some ‘nasty old cracker’ but a ‘White Hispanic’ who had probably done more for the ‘Black Community’ that all the ‘Community Organizers’.

    Brown was a ‘thug’ and they knew it but were running out of time so had to move. I still think the Brown thing was a ‘warm up’ for Garner - it gave ‘them’ a chance to set up in different cities.

    In Ferguson the PUNKS telegraphed what they were going to do, and went so far as to say didn’t really matter what the GJ decision was, the ‘lid was coming off”.

    It was reported that the Mayor of Ferguson wanted the NG in place BEFORE the GJ Decision but was stopped by Wash & the MO Gov.

    The Police (I certainly hope they were under orders) stood by and let the flames start, by the time it got to I70 they had virtually done nothing to put an end to it.

    The more the PUNKS got away with, the more embolden they became.

    I am really surprised that Sharpton didn’t profess that the killing of the 2 cops was senseless because One was Asian and the other Hispanic..We are out for the Honky Cops ... Or some such drivel.

    FOR which he would not have been held accountable.

    I had ‘predicted’ a massive case of Nationwide ‘Blue Flu’ a couple of weeks ago..By the time ‘THEY’ get around to it, I am afraid the situation will be well out of control....

    Last night on local news they were showing these fools blocking ramps and one in particular going into SE DC (ACROSS the River). The route they were on is an Interstate.

    It will be fun when the ‘residents’ of Anacostia have some face to face with these ‘NW and Georgetown/GWU preppies’ and it comes to blocking their cars or businesses...

    That little journey was ‘dicey’ about 10 years ago..Somewhat like North Ave in Baltimore...in the middle of the day you feel you could cut the tension with a knife...

    Admittedly some of the trepidation may have been because of anticipation of what ‘could’ happen (IT WORKS IN COURT FOR THEM).

    I do carry even in DC (seems you CAN’T(well not supposed to) CARRY where it is needed....

    Even though a Pistol is no match for a ‘mob’ may still be able to create enough confusion to make a ‘get away’ if threatened.

    Whether you are able to ‘get to it’ in time or not, the mental thought that you at least have ‘something’ is far better than saying ‘If you don’t stop I am going to call 911’ Course calling 911 when in the middle of Indian Country sure gets some weird looks and comments with the first thought from Black AND White Officers -WTF you doing THERE?....

    Like JJ and AL Dullton point out - ‘THEY’ have a right to be anywhere in the city at any time for any reason.
    ‘THEY’ tell me I have the same rights but quickly add.
    “You sure look like you know better than to be in that neighborhood, so you deserve what you got”.....
    Go figure...
