    The Lies of the Devil and the Empty Promises of the World Msgr. Charles Pope • September 22, 2016 • One of the great illusions under which we labor is that if we only get just one more thing from this world, then we will be happy. Perhaps we think that if we just had a little more money, or a better job, or the latest iPhone, or if we were married to so-and-so, or if we lived in a better neighborhood, then we would be satisfied and content at last. But “at last” never seems to come even...

    I was out a short time ago running some errands and had The Chris Plante Radio Show on. Plante was talking to somebody at the Republican Convention and he said after three days of being there that he was seeing people there as attendees and guests that just were not his kind of people. I took that to mean this guy was GOP establishment, he did not like Trump and he certainly did not like the people Trump has brought into the party. You see they were "Not his sort of people". Interpret that however you would like, but my...

    Fresh off endorsing a woman to succeed him in the Oval Office, President Barack Obama stood before 5,000 convened as part of a White House summit on women and delivered his most robustly feminist speech yet. "I may be a little grayer than I was eight years ago," Obama told the advocates. "But this is what a feminist looks like." While he said little about the presidential election, Obama's words implicitly drew a contrast between the majority-female, diverse Democratic coalition and the party of Trump. "You hear politicians peddle the fiction that blocking immigrants or cutting off trade or 'big...

    TAMPA, Florida (AP) Campaigning in the crucial battleground state of Florida, Donald Trump bashed Democrats and Republicans alike Saturday, from Hillary Clinton to former Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney on the right. Addressing a crowd of thousands at the Tampa Convention Center, Trump tore into "Crooked Hillary," as he calls his likely general election opponent, for the State Department email controversy and called Romney a "stone, cold loser" for not backing him as the presumptive Republican nominee. Trump said the Republican Party "has got to get their act together, come together to win" and slammed GOP senate candidates who...

    In the American liberal compass, the needle is always pointing to places like Denmark. Everything they most fervently hope for here has already happened there. So: Why does no one seem particularly interested in visiting Denmark? (Honey, on our European trip, I want to see Tuscany, Paris, Berlin and . . . Jutland!) Visitors say Danes are joyless to be around. Denmark suffers from high rates of alcoholism. In its use of antidepressants it ranks fourth in the world. (Its fellow Nordics the Icelanders are in front by a wide margin.) Some 5% of Danish men have had sex with...

    Over the years I've seen other articles like this before... Conservatives don’t normally pay much attention to fancy psychobabble, but this is a worthy exception. Some nerdlinger social scientists in America have discovered that people with Right-wing views tend to be happier than those with Left-wing views – even if the party that best represents them is out of power...Why are conservatives happier? The research found that Right-wingers tend not to blame their problems on other people – so they refuse to be depressed by victimhood. This makes a lot of sense. When you accept that you are your own master, then...

After meeting with Texas Governor Rick Perry in Dallas, Texas, Obama said sending National Guard troops, though, would be a "temporary solution." Obama said if Republicans wanted some National Guard troops to be sent to the border as a condition for approving the $3.7 billion in funding Obama requested, he "would be happy to consider it."

The data used in this analysis is available in highly aggregated form only and can be downloaded from publicly accessible sites. While none of these data sources are ideal, they combine to tell a consistent story....
