Queen Elizabeth, so typically British, to Son Prince Charles "I'll give you my crown only when you pry it from my cold, dead hands.”
|Retiring Queen Beatrix of the Netherlands and Liz the Brit for Life Queen|
A good article on the selfless act of Queen Beatrix of the Netherlands to the next generation.
Or perhaps the rest of her life. There was an interesting line in Queen Beatrix's abdication speech that may very well have been a subtle snub to Elizabeth's remark. In the three minutes she spoke, Queen Beatrix found the time to say that "the reason for me to step back now is not because the office is too much of a strain [it is not]. I am abdicating because I am convinced that the responsibility for our country should now move to the next generation".
Compare that to the drawn-out public castration to which Queen Elizabeth is subjecting her son Charles. You can't help being born an heir apparent, but those who love you can help make it easier for you. Queen Elizabeth is not doing that, or so it looks to a Dutch eye.
|Rand Paul with Bibi Netanyahu in Israel Earlier in January|
WASHINGTON — Sen. Rand Paul told an off-the-record meeting of conservative donors and powerbrokers Monday that he plans to file a bill that would ban sending F-16 fighter jets to Egypt.
"The crowed loved it," a source told BuzzFeed.
Last year, Lockheed Martin delivered 20 F-16 fighter jets to Egypt as part of $1.3 billion in military aid from the U.S. government, The New York Times reported.
Paul has expressed concern for the practice in the past — but his remarks via Skype to the so-called "Monday Meeting" in New York City showed even firmer support by the Kentucky senator for policies that might cater to Jewish voters, as well as Evangelical groups that are staunchly pro-Israel.

Sarah Palin – Soccer Mom – Fox News Weathergirl Retires – extended 16 Minutes of Fame comes to whimpering End
Sarah got the boot last week from Roger Ailes over at Fox News.
Rumor has it that Roger thought the hot dog vendor outside at 49th and Sixth Ave in NYC had more talent.
Now she can look forward to a long string of grand openings at Safeways, Krogers and Piggly Wigglys.
Best of Luck girl!
In an interview with WND, the senator said his
(My)“suspicion, although I don’t have any proof, is that guns were being smuggled out of Libya, through Turkey and into Syria.”
“And that may be what the CIA annex was doing there,” Paul said, “and the coverup was an attempt to massage and get over this issue without getting into the gun trade.”
Christianity is Just a Franchise/Religion to Sell Your Products – I.E. Christianity/NRA, Christianity/TVangelism, Christianity/Italian Mafia/Vatican, Christianity/Healthcare INC Etc.
|Supreme "Christian" Pontiffs Joe Ratzinger of Costa Nostra Italy INC and Wayne LaPierre of (my gun is my metaphoric penis) NRA|
As an Areligionist and an Agnostic, I think a great many splinter groups use the “Christian” franchise label to sell their latest self help book, or autobiography on why God has chosen them etc, to sell a lot of petty empires, radiated genetically mutated poultry and or Chik-fil-A sammiches.
Channel surfing this morning I caught wind of Joyce Meyer in her Woolworth red lipstick telling a bunch of potential Mary Kay recruits that “God wants you to be prosperous” (14 Kings, Chap 8, Verse 13,?).
I also caught a glimpse of the Mannequin messiah Joel Osteen’s 100 k worth mouthful of perfect plastic teeth preaching the mixed God/oatmeal/send me a check, modern gospel.
It was not until I saw the below article that all my thoughts gelled and made the realization/ephiphany that Christianity (copyright expired) is for the most part just part of any new “Christian/whatever” new marketing product, safe and or untested on humans or animals.
Karen Spears Zacharias on If the NRA were a Religion:
If the NRA were a religion, its members would be stockpiling toilet paper, buying up all the granola bars, and squirreling away antibiotic as they prepare for the Armageddon to end all Armageddons.
If the NRA were a religion, their worship music would stir the congregation into a frenzy. Their songs would instill in those worshipping a sense of righteous indignation and a determination to protect their own from demons unknown.
If the NRA were a religion, they would be a mega-church run by a charismatic beloved pastor whose congregants cling to the outrageous things he says because there’s enough fear twisted into his lies that it passes for truth. Outlandish! declare the non-believers who always leave the mega-church shaking their heads in disbelief.
If the NRA were a religion, they would be dogmatic about their doctrine, convinced that their way is the only right way to God.
Chik-fil-A Sammich. Guaranteed to find a bit of god/idol and pickle in every bite.

|Italy, where Church = State|
Christ! What a better place to defend Mussolini’s and the Vatican’s Holocaust cooperation than to have a piece of bent pasta like Berlusconi defend government sponsored genocide at a Holocaust Memorial Event!
Protecting the Vatican’s collusion in WWII with Mussolini is in line and goose step with the former Italian Prime Minister’s attempt to protect the German pope’s current revisionist world view of the Holocaust via the fast track sainthood campaign for Pius XII.
"Obviously the government of that time, out of fear that German power might lead to complete victory, preferred to ally itself with Hitler's Germany rather than opposing it," he said. "As part of this alliance, there were impositions, including combating and exterminating Jews. The racial laws were the worst fault of Mussolini as a leader, who in so many other ways did well."
In 1938, Mussolini passed laws barring Jews from academia and many professions. After 1943, when Germany occupied parts of the country, more than 7,000 Jews were deported to Nazi concentration camps, with many perishing at Auschwitz.
Angela Merkel, the German chancellor, said Saturday that Germany had an "everlasting responsibility" for Nazi crimes, but Berlusconi said Italy "did not have the same responsibility," adding that the country's collusion in the Holocaust was initially "partly unwitting."
“We’d (GOP) Attract More Young People If We Didn’t Seem So Eager To Go To War.”
“I can assure you if I’m president, the Iranians will have no question but that I will be willing to take military action if necessary to prevent them from becoming a nuclear threat to the world.”

Fr. Simon Henry of Farington UK Rants About Those Catholics that are Ruining His Church and Therefore Don’t Belong in His Church
|Father Simon Henry, Farington UK|
The true “enemy within” are those modernist Vatican 2-ers and not the Dinosaur turd Trenters. Yeah right. More like civil war between factions and not schism or heresy.
There is an "anti-Church" within the Church labouring in parishes, deaneries and curial offices in complete opposition to Pope Benedict's teaching that the the Second Vatican Council should be interpreted in a hermeneutic of continuity, such as this unreliable and impossible to substantiate tosh in last week's Tablet, where the writer more or less says the Vatican II did what Jesus wanted but Trent didn't.
This anti-Church seems to have existed in hidden form underground for many decades but grasped the Second Vatican Council to come out into the open and now openly preaches in opposition to the public teaching of the Magisterium of the Church. The parish priest leaning on the lectern at Mass, without wearing a chasuble, telling people that women should be ordained, or the parish priest inviting people to general absolution, is not an outlandish caricature but a daily reality.
This third column, which I've experienced many times, is full of clergy who appear to hate the Church as it has manifested itself for hundreds of years, certainly hate the Pope, hate Rome and hate the Tradition which has been the vehicle of transmitting the Faith and the Scriptures down the generations. If you hate a club and everything it stands for, why join it, why stay in it? Why not go off and start a club of your own or join one that is in harmony with your opinions (there are plenty of them)?
Why do these people insist on trying to turn the Church into another version of all those Reformation breakaways? All the things they want - no Pope, no Tradition, no authority, lay-led services, women priests and free-style dancing, elected elders and doctrine by popular vote - are available in the many denominations that abound throughout the world. But no - they must stay here and work to change The Church from within for reasons that I cannot fathom..

|Dolphin in Gowanus Canal Brooklyn NY|
The Gowanus Canal in Brooklyn New York is pretty much an abandoned open sewer, a marvel of the industrial nineteenth century technology that is so toxic to this day that nobody wants to touch it even if it is in many backyards in the most populated city in the United States.
Into that toxic backwater bathwater wandered a lonely dolphin which no doubt succumbed to the abandoned canal’s toxic charms.
Maybe the planet is trying to tell us something. (and a case of killing the messenger)
Sasha Chavchavadze, founder of Proteus Gowanus, said she watched the dolphin appear to get caught behind one of the pipes that runs through the canal to flush it out.
“I thought it was a goner because it turned upside down,” Ms. Chavchavadze said. “But the dolphin extracted itself and started swimming again.” She said she heard the police asking “does anybody have a canoe” and not knowing quite what to do.
The Gowanus has long been considered the most inhospitable of waterways. For years, it was the dumping ground for industrial waste, a receptacle for sewage spill-off and generally a symbol for urban decay.
In 2007, when a 12-foot Minke whale appeared fit and lively swimming around near the mouth of the canal, it quickly earned a seemingly fitting nickname: Sludgie.
Sludgie the whale swam near the canal for two days even as people worked to rescue it. But the attempts failed and Sludgie died.

Archbishop Charles Chaput and his intellectual equal Half Gov. Sarah Palin join forces to raise cash for charity 501 (c)(3) over Terry Schiavo’s dead body
I never quite understood the Terry Schiavo case except to think that comfortable white middle class Catholics with health care are afraid to die and find out there may be nothing after death.
That and the sanctity of a so-called one man, one woman marriage and the spouse’s decision to pull the plug on a vegetable spouse can be be vetoed by the Religious Liberty Rights of rich Catholic Parents. Sounds like a foursome and not a twosome in that sacred Catholic Marriage. Whatever.
Anyway, Charlie Chaput, a fan of Gov. Palin’s great intellect even for an inferior female of the species is helping to drum up cash for what to me looks like a charity scam founded in the poor dead victim’s name. Cause unknown. Ca-ching goes the Catholic Charity Cash register. Ca-ching. Ca-ching.
“We are delighted to have His Excellency, Archbishop Chaput, as the main celebrant for Terri’s Memorial Mass and Governor Palin as the keynote speaker at our first Award Gala” Bobby Schindler said, Terri’s brother and executive director of the Terri Schiavo Life & Hope Network. ...
Terri died on March 31, 2005, at age 41, as the result of a court-ordered execution by starvation sought by her long-estranged husband Michael Schiavo. He removed the brain injured woman’s feeding tube on March 18, 2005 and she was dehydrated to death over 13 days as the whole world watched. Many called it court-sanctioned murder and it has set a dangerous precedent for the rest of the country that family members or guardians who believe an individual can no longer be productive in society can simply get a court order to end their life.
Terri had incurred serious brain damage in mysterious circumstances in February, 1990 when she collapsed at the home of her and her husband Michael Schiavo. Thereafter Michael Schiavo lived in an adulterous relationship for nearly 10 years and fathered two children with his concubine, Jodi Centonze, and maintained that Terri was in a persistent vegetative state with no chance of recovery.
However, her parents, siblings and numerous medical professionals dispute that, saying that she was in a minimally conscious state and could substantially improve with therapy and new technology. But the court and Michael Schiavo consistently rejected any attempts at new testing or therapy.
Terri’s parents, Mary and Robert Schindler Sr., brother Bobby and sister Suzanne battled Michael Schiavo in court for nearly 10 years, arguing that she was not in a persistent vegetative state as Judge George Greer decreed and that she would not want to die in such a manner.

Once again, Catholic morality is a kaleidoscope like measure of convenience and or the bottom line.
…His patient died at the hospital less than an hour after she arrived and her twins died in her womb.
After Stoghill's death, Lori's husband Jerry filed a wrongful death suit against St. Thomas Moore Hospital in Cañon City, claiming that Dr. Staples should have at least instructed ER personnel to perform an emergency C-section.
Jerry's suit states that the hospital's negligence resulted the deaths of three individuals — his wife, and his two unborn but post-viability sons.
In response, Catholic Health Initiatives, the nonprofit that runs St. Thomas Moore and 170 other healthcare facilities, claimed that Jerry Stoghill has no grounds to sue them for the loss of three lives, as unborn people aren't technically "persons" under Colorado law.
New Mexico – Rep. Cathrynn Brown (R) Would Criminalize Abortion after Rape as Tampering with Evidence – House Bill 206
Just when you thought Republicans could not get any dumber as they drag their knuckles around the public forum – meet state Rep. Cathrynn Brown (R) of New Mexico.
A Republican lawmaker in New Mexico introduced a bill on Wednesday that would legally require victims of rape to carry their pregnancies to term in order to use the fetus as evidence for a sexual assault trial.
House Bill 206, introduced by state Rep. Cathrynn Brown (R), would charge a rape victim who ended her pregnancy with a third-degree felony for "tampering with evidence."
“Tampering with evidence shall include procuring or facilitating an abortion, or compelling or coercing another to obtain an abortion, of a fetus that is the result of criminal sexual penetration or incest with the intent to destroy evidence of the crime," the bill says.

What video games does Wayne LaPierre allow his children or grandchildren to play?
FOX News kills common American decency with its manufactured fear, fear, fear!

Mahony Crony Bishop Curry of Santa Barbara Living the Good Life After Shuffling Pervs Around the Map
|Bishop Thomas Curry - Santa Barbara - Trust Me - "I'm Sorry"|
According to the internal church documents, Mahony and Curry – then a monsignor serving as Mahony's chief adviser on sex-abuse issues – discussed ways to prevent law enforcement from learning about molestations of children by clergy in 1986 and 1987, more than a decade before the abuses became public knowledge.
In confidential letters, Curry proposed strategies to prevent police from investigating three priests who had admitted to church officials that they abused young boys. Curry suggested to Mahony that they prevent the clergymen from seeing therapists who might alert authorities.
In one instance, Curry suggested that a priest be sent to "a lawyer who is also a psychiatrist" to keep their discussions "under the protection of privilege."
Curry also suggested they send the priests to other states to further thwart law enforcement, according to the documents.
In one case, he suggested that a priest remain out of state to avoid the possibility that a young victim would spot him and contact police.

Discounts to Cardinals Bishops and Clergy at Msgr Kevin Wallin’s Land of Oz Sex, Bong and Fantasy Shop in Bridgeport Connecticut
What is this fascination with gay priests and Dorothy and the Wizard of Oz and the Ruby Slippers?
As Cardinal Egan of New York' right hand man when he was Bishop in Bridgeport in the late nineties, the only thing Monsignor Wallin needed once he left St Augustine’s Cathedral parish there on sabbatical recently was Money Laundering for his Meth empire.
Without the cover of legitimate Vatican sponsored money laundering at St. Augustine's, Wallin needed the sex shop to launder his profits. Free Market Capitalism (bow your heads).
Both for religion and drugs, you need a front business to launder the profits.
20% discount to the Clergy on the Ruby (Cardinal) Slippers. One can dream, can’t one?
