St. Michael Prayer

St. Michael the Archangel, defend us in the day of battle.

Be our defense against the wickedness and snares of the devil.

May God rebuke him, we humbly pray,

And do thou, O Prince of the Heavenly Hosts,

By the power of GOD,

Cast into hell Satan, and all the evil spirits,

Who prowl about the world, seeking the ruin of souls


Thank you, Jim Robinson, for Free Republic! I love FreeRepublic. It's my home on the web. I have been married to Mr. Sneakers for 34 years. We have one son, now honorably discharged from the US Navy, graduated from college, married to a wonderful woman and a daddy with another on the way. We are VERY proud of him! In fact, we are proud of ALL of our men and women who have served/are serving in the US military!

I'm proudly and unapologeticaly Catholic, with a newly re-discovered love for the beauty and reverence of the Traditional Latin Mass.

Other than that, I'm a Flag-waving, Second-Amendment-Defending (NRA member), Pro-Life, Anti-Feminist, Anti-ACLU, Military-Supporting former Democrat who finally woke up and learned the truth! Been a happier person ever since, and I've never looked back!!

Jim Quinn authored the liberal version of "The Ant and the Grasshopper":

The Ant and the Grasshopper (Quinn's Liberal Version)

by Jim Quinn

The Original Version The ant busts his ass in the withering heat all summer long, building his house and laying up supplies for the winter. The grasshopper thinks he's a fool and laughs and dances and plays the summer away. Come winter the ant is warm and well fed. The grasshopper has no food or shelter so he dies out in the cold.

The New Liberal Version

It starts out the same but when winter comes the shivering grasshopper calls a press conference and demands to know why the ant should be allowed to be warm and well fed while others are cold and starving. CBS, NBC, and ABC show up and show pictures of the shivering grasshopper next to film of the ant in his comfortable home with a table filled with food.

America is stunned by the sharp contrast. How can it be, in a country of such wealth that this poor grasshopper is allowed to suffer so? Then a representative of the NAAGB (The National Association of Green Bugs) shows up on Night Line and charges the ant with "Green Bias" and makes the case that the grasshopper is the victim of 30 million years of greenism. Kermit the frog appears on Oprah with the grasshopper and everybody cries when he sings "It's Not Easy Being Green."

Bill and Hillary Clinton make a special guest appearance on the CBS evening news and tell a concerned Dan Rather That they will do everything they can for the grasshopper who has been denied the prosperity he deserves by those who benefited unfairly during the summer, or as Bill refers to it, the "Temperatures Of The 80's".

Finally the EEOC drafts the "Economic Equity and Anti-Greenism Act" RECTRO-ACTIVE to the beginning of the summer. The ant is fined for failing to hire a proportionate number of green bugs and having nothing left to pay his Retro-Active taxes, his home is confiscated by the government.

The story ends as we see the grasshopper finishing up the last bits of the ant's food while the government house he's in....which just happens to be the ant's old house.... crumbles around him since he doesn't know how to maintain it. The ant has disappeared in the snow. And on the TV; which the grasshopper bought by selling most of the ant's food, Bill Clinton is standing before a wildly applauding group of Democrats announcing that a new era of "Fairness" has dawned in America.

(I think Quinn has to update from "Clinton" to "Obama" or even "The One"!)

In honor of all those, down through the ages, who have sacrificed everything for freedom.

I will always regret voting for McCain and not writing in Duncan Hunter's name. Just think; we could have had this:

Duncan Hunter 1 Duncan Hunter Marines Duncan Hunter

Instead, we got the usurper:

Barack in muslim garb Barack in diaper

Hey Obama:

Where's the birth certificate?

Rush Limbaugh: "What do God and Obama have in common?" Answer: "Neither of them have a birth certificate!


Duncan Hunter:

"When you were hungry the Americans brought you food

When you were sick the Americans brought you medicine

When you had tsunamis and earthquakes and landslides the Americans came<{>And when you were in danger the Americans left the safety of their own homes to come and protect you.
