A fork in the road...
So a depraved and decadent nation, including a majority of nominal Catholics, re-elected Nero to a second term. Now that they can't count on a deus ex machina in the form of a President Romney saving them from the consequences of their decades-long collaboration with Democratic evil, the big question is what the bishops are going to do about the Health Care contraceptive mandate. Are they going to stand up like men or will they lie down like lambs? Are they going to compromise with evil or are they going to lead our church in civil disobedience to this vile regime and its attempt to make Catholics pay for what is sinful and loathsome? The next four years will undoubtedly be horrific, but fidelity and martyrdom always produce great fruit for Christ's Church.

It was downright amusing to see Karl Rove trying to tell Fox News on election night that some phantom votes in Ohio were yet to be reported and that Fox News could not call the election.
No doubt Karl was blacked out on liquor and reliving Ohio 2004.
In any case they say he personally made 30-50 million commission off of the rich billionaires 400 million invested with his consulting firm and dedicated to swaying the 2012 elections on every level with expensive negative ads and contributions to tea baggers.
The lame excuse by Karl post-election that Obama had somehow “suppressed” the vote was pure icing on the cake of GOP delusional bullshit.
The one trick monkey Rove who has been getting monkeys elected to office for close to twenty years has finally Jumped the Shark – a TV term when a program can longer get any good ratings even if the star like “Fonzie” goes all the way to Los Angeles in the TV sitcom Happy Days to water ski and literally jump the shark. Thumbs down.
The Karl Rove Show starring Karl Rove I think has finally been cancelled. LOL
Will somebody please tell him. And escort him out of the building.

Rumors, from the American Vatican, the Pink Palace at 452 Madison Avenue NYC, have plans for Bill to receive the fabulously coveted Catholic Media Toady Award from the pope also known as the Order of Saint Gregory.
“The order is bestowed on Catholic men and women … in recognition of their personal service to the Holy See and the Church, unusual labors, support of the Holy See, and the good example set in their communities and country.” -- Wikipedia
This to compensate Bill for not receiving a promised American Order of Freedom that a President Romney would have awarded Donohue, on rubber stamped orders and or request from the Pink Palace BTW.
No wonder Bill’s Racist remarks about terrorists, community organizers and Eric Holder came as part of his post-election day reaction to the re-election and victory of the good of secular power of Obama over the forces of closeted evil that Bill so willingly serves and is handsomely compensated for I might add.
The Order of Saint Gregory was also awarded to Sir Jimmy Savile of BBC fame for his personal services, pimping perhaps, for the “Holy”See of Pope John Paul the Second. Jimmy is currently dead and under many scurrilous rumors about his holy catholic private life.
Congrats Bill if this rumor is true. Nobody deserves it more. Who next for the Catholic Media Toady papal honor? Raymond Arroyo?
And Bill, don’t forget to wear the special knee breeches of a Papal Knight of St.Gregory to the papal ceremony.

Considering all the billions Trump, Adelson and the Koch Brothers stuffed into Karl Rove’s pockets to steal our democracy, has any of these morons every heard of a basic law of Economics – The Law of Diminishing Returns –
whereby no matter how much you spend or how many people to add to your production line to produce a product like Rove, you cannot increase the results (period).
Bullshit at a dollar a pound is no different than bullshit that sells for a hundred dollars a pound in a boutique on Park Avenue. It is still just bullshit.
The law of diminishing returns (also law of diminishing marginal returns or law of increasing relative cost) states that in all productive processes, adding more of one factor of production, while holding all others constant ("ceteris paribus"), will at some point yield lower per-unit returns. The law of diminishing returns does not imply that adding more of a factor will decrease the total production, a condition known as negative returns, though in fact this is common. ~~~ Wikipedia

Papal Knight Jimmy Savile First Annual Circumcised Pickle Award for Gall to Bill Donohue at Catholic League
Bill has, I have lost track of the number of non-paid intern written essays published against the New York Times over at the CL, trying to cover-up John Paul II and his consuming love of all things Pedophile, avoid the Truth about that pope, to blame the BBC instead and by extension the new head of the NYT, that the BBC never ratted out British Royal and Papal Knighted Sir Jimmy Savile when both the Queen and the Pope gave him their royal seals of approval.
Too bad the victims of this pedophile king/ring cannot sue both Buck House and the Vatican for their perverted seal of approval to this dead media toady scumbag.
Where is customer service these days? The Hague?
Gall – Definiton – Source: Free Dictionary dot Com
1. See bile.
2. a. Bitterness of feeling; rancor. b. Something bitter
to endure: the gall of defeat.
3. Outrageous insolence; effrontery.

I ran into this help site for Staten Island.
The Borough President of Staten Island says to boycott American Red Cross
A lot of damage to the plywood based houses on the South Shore. Living next to the ocean has its hazards. A lot of housing on the south shore by the ocean should have been left nature preserves or swamps and never built on IMHO.
They just turned the electricity on about sixteen hours ago here. We were out of luck for 68 hours in this little pocket on the north shore of Staten Island, the many times forgotten fifth borough of "New York City".
The two streets in an island of other areas that came back sooner after a day or two was because a lot of big old houses on these two streets have 130 year old oaks that were supposed to be taken down by owners in the last year or two but did not or could not trim or remove older trees.
Kind of expensive if you are retired and appear to be well to do living in a big old house. I live in an apartment complex surrounded by the shabby chic of yesteryear glory in an old neighborhood.
Twenty three trees bit the dust on these two streets. First the cut downs, then cutting up the trees, non-stop roar of wood chippers, the inspections, minor repairs, priority of Con Edison personnel in not being called elsewhere etc. The Ferry is still not working, no electricity in St. George at the moment.
No rioting but some looting at a nearby Lowe’s and Kohl’s right after the storm.
Kudos to NYPD on catching some of the perps.
Was able to buy candles at Lowe’s on Tuesday morning for cash, cash registers down with the electricity.
Was surprised they printed this. About a mile from here.
Some running by my son back and forth to places to recharge cells and lap top and try to make deadlines with college homework, the college only open yesterday, today public schools open.
We got ice and the meat in the freezer stayed frozen enough to think it is still good. Water was on and gas in the stove, pilot light intact.
Candles, a transistor radio and started to write the first two chapters of a long threatened novel.
Someone I know spent three hours in line for a tank of gas last night after going to five closed stations. Some skank was hanging around the line offering gallon cans of gasoline at $60 dollars a pop.
All in all we were quite lucky. Compared to what I hear about Jersey.
The infrastructure and planning in the nineteenth century for a twenty-first century New York City SUCKS in the age of global warming and or climate change.
Trillions of dollars of over-inflated obsolete skyscrapers returning to the primordial swamp etc. in downtown Manhattan. Not a good investment friends.
Be well guys. Civilization is indeed a thin veneer.

“I saw a story today that one of the great manufacturers in this state, Jeep — now owned by the Italians — is thinking of moving all production to China,” Romney said at a rally in Defiance, Ohio, home to a General Motors powertrain plant. “I will fight for every good job in America. I’m going to fight to make sure trade is fair, and if it’s fair America will win.”
If there is a profit in it - Romney's soul is for sale - and he is as good as his word. Yeah right.

Michael “Smithers” Winters – Nat'l Catholic Reporter – Quote of the Day Oct 22 – Re: Election Year Chaput style “Catholic Conscience”
|Michael "Smithers" Winters, National Catholic Reporter - Abp. Charles Chaput|
"Just remember. When you are on your death bed, the Democratic Party is not going to send someone to be there with you and help you get ready to cross the abyss. And, even if they did send someone, it would not be someone you would want!" I have my areas of disagreement with Archbishop Chaput, but I commend him unreservedly for his repeated insistence that we Catholics put our faith first. And, if we do so, partisans on both sides have plenty to think about.

Lord Bichard, House of Lords, wants Pensioners to Do Community Work for No Pay or dock their Old Age Pensions in Britain
One of the memories from my youth was Lyndon Johnson’s War on Poverty which he did as a diversion as they sent mostly poor and mostly black people in the “draft” (without, too poor to afford, deferments) over to Vietnam for the sake of General Motors’ profits and quarterly dividends.
I can remember a pre-class discussion in college among fellow students back then how Lyndon Johnson or his wife Lady Bird held stock in a company that made the infamous “tiger cages” to house and torture North Vietnamese Prisoners of Wars. This of course for a profit etc. For profit is no sin – right?
In that great tradition of rich man politician Hypocrisy, Paul Ryan has suddenly discovered the poor and the losing war on poverty. And no doubt to cover up public, not private, guilt over Janna’s Petroleum Industry “Blind” trusts funds and perhaps too as a cover for Ann Romney making millions through “Elliott Associates” from taxpayer federal bailout money for the auto industry in her “Blind Trust” etc,
- Paul Ryan has suddenly found the “Poor” and is promising them “Upward Mobility” just like Jesus did in his day.
Paul Ryan / Mitt Romney / Ayn Rand Beatitudes:
Blessed are the poor in spirit: for theirs is the kingdom of welfare – 47%.
Blessed are they that mourn: for they shall be sold a $20,000 on credit that they cannot afford funeral package for mom.
Blessed are the meek: for they shall pay my share of the taxes.
Blessed are they which do hunger and thirst after righteousness: for they shall be given a “Truth” enema by FOX NEWS.
Blessed are the merciful: for they shall be taken advantage of by the hedge fund managers.
Blessed are the pure in heart: for they are losers – no scratch, cash – nada.
Blessed are the peacemakers: for they shall be assassinated by the arms dealers and or droned on by the Military Industry Complex INC etc.
Blessed are they which are persecuted for tax sakes: for theirs is the kingdom and banking system of the Cayman Islands.

National Republican Senate Committee Stands by "RAPE IS OK" as part of their Platform - Richard Mourdock Indiana Senate Race
|Richard Mourdock - "Rape is OK" Republican Candidate for Senate in Indiana|
The chair of the Senate Republicans’ campaign arm is standing by Indiana Senate candidate Richard Mourdock after he said pregnancies resulting from rape are “something that God intended to happen.”
“Richard and I, along with millions of Americans – including even Joe Donnelly – believe that life is a gift from God,” Texas Sen. John Cornyn said in a statement Wednesday. “To try and construe his words as anything other than a restatement of that belief is irresponsible and ridiculous. In fact, rather than condemning him for his position, as some in his party have when it’s come to Republicans, I commend Congressman Donnelly for his support of life.”

Prayer to God(dess)
Who dwells in Paradise
Blessed are your Names
Thy reign of Peace come
Thy plan for Earth
As it is already in Paradise
Give us this day in Humility
Provide us from your Bounty
Our daily Bread and
Mutual peace of Mind
And forgive us our Anger
Even as we try to Forgive
The anger in Others
Let us not fail to Be the
Good side of Human
And Protect us from
Our less than Human
