Tomb of the Unknown ChristmasOur Father, who art in heaven, hallowed be thy Name. Thy kingdom come. THY WILL BE DONE, on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread.

For Thine is the kingdom and the power and the glory, forever and ever. Amen †

    The Little Sparrow

    I’m like a little sparrow
    As I flit along my way;
    Both unseen and unnoticed
    During each and every day.

    Life is full of little things
    And I guess that I’m just one,
    Helping others when I can
    Until each day is done.

    I’m happy to let others
    Be in front and take the lead.
    I don’t want recognition
    As I do my little deeds.

    Each day I walk along my path
    But not to be seen by men.
    Seeing someone else’s smile
    Makes me smile, time and again.

    So I’m content to serve the One
    Who died to set me free.
    His eye is on the sparrow,
    And I know He watches me.

    Random news: I have an iMac and had preferred Firefox as a browser. Lately Firefox is S.L.O.W. beyond measure, and no amount of refreshing and tweaking helped. So I used Safari, which I had traditionally not liked (the menu bar without favicons for favorites is still a pet peeve of mine). However, Safari is lightning fast and I am sacrificing “pretty” for “speed”.

      How about iCab (www.icab.de and App Store for ios) ?

      Has many more user settings and tools than Safari and built-in advert and tracking filtering which the user can easily customize. With a bit of work you can elimimate almost all ads. (Of course some sites will then block your connection because they see their ads are not loading.)

      Ios version doesn’t seem to be quite as stable as Safari and also doesn’t seem to handle memory quite as well – have to be careful to reduce background apps and other tabs. But basically it is fit for purpose.

    ORANGE COUNTY, FLORIDA
    >
    >
    >

    For some reason, people have difficulty structuring their
    arguments when arguing against supporting the currently
    proposed immigration revisions. This lady made the argument
    pretty simple. NOT printed in the Orange County Paper …..

    Newspapers simply won’t publish letters to the editor
    which they either deem politically incorrect (read below) or
    which do not agree with the philosophy they’re pushing
    on the public. This woman wrote a great letter to the editor
    that should have been published;
    but, with your help, it will get published via cyberspace!

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ ~

    From: “David LaBonte”

    My wife, Rosemary, wrote a wonderful letter to the editor of
    the OC Register which, of course, was not printed. So, I
    decided to “print” it myself by sending it out on
    the Internet. Pass it along if you feel so inclined. Written
    in response to a series of letters
    to the editor in the Orange County Register:

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ ~

    Dear Editor:

    So many letter writers have based their arguments on how
    this land is made up of immigrants. Ernie Lujan for one,
    suggests we should tear down the Statue of Liberty
    because the people now in question aren’t
    being treated the same as those who passed through
    Ellis Island and other ports of entry.

    Maybe we should turn to our history books and point out to
    people like Mr. Lujan why today’s American is not
    willing to accept this new kind of immigrant any longer.

    Back in 1900 when there was a rush from all areas of Europe
    to come to the United States, people had to get off a ship
    and stand in a long line in New York and be documented. Some
    would even get down on their hands and knees and
    kiss the ground.

    They made a pledge to uphold the laws and support their new
    country in good and bad times. They made learning English a
    primary rule in their new American households and some even
    changed their names to blend in with their new home.

    They had waved good-bye to their birth place to give their
    children a new life and did everything in their power to
    help their children assimilate into one culture.

    Nothing was handed to them. No free lunches, no welfare, no
    labor laws to protect them. All they had were the skills and
    craftsmanship they had brought with them to trade for a
    future of prosperity.

    Most of their children came of age when World War II broke
    out. My father fought alongside men whose parents had come
    straight over from Germany , Italy , France and Japan . None
    of these 1st generation Americans ever gave any thought
    about what country their
    parents had come from.

    They were Americans fighting Hitler, Mussolini and the
    Emperor of Japan . They were defending the United States of
    America as one people.

    When we liberated France , no one in those villages were
    looking for the French-American or the German-American or
    the Irish-American. The people of France saw only Americans.
    And we carried one flag that represented one country.

    Not one of those immigrant sons would have thought about
    picking up another country’s flag and waving it to
    represent who they were. It would have been a disgrace to
    their parents who had sacrificed so much to be here.

    These immigrants truly knew what it

    meant to be an American. They stirred the melting pot into
    one Red, White and Blue bowl.

    And here we are with a new kind of immigrant who wants the
    same rights

    and privileges. Only they want to

    achieve it by playing with a different

    set of rules, one that includes the entitlement card and a
    guarantee of being faithful to their mother country.

    I’m sorry, that’s not what being an American is all
    about. I believe that the immigrants who landed on Ellis
    Island in the early 1900’s deserve better than that for
    all the toil, hard work and sacrifice in raising future
    generations to create a land that has
    become a beacon for those legally searching for a better
    life.

    I think they would be appalled that they are being used as
    an example by those waving foreign country flags.

    And for that suggestion about taking down the Statue of
    Liberty , it happens to mean a lot to the citizens who are
    voting on the immigration bill. I wouldn’t start talking
    about dismantling the United States just yet.

    (signed)

    Rosemary LaBonte

      This is interesting Dennis. Would like to add something: The immigrants were admitted to be cheap labor for American industrialization. Although most of the new immigrants became good citizens, there were also a minority killer anarchists among the immigrants, and their violence led to deportations, restrictions on immigration, the second formation of “Ku Klux Klan” (distinct from the first Klan in the South), etc.

      The anarchists were led by men such as Luigi Galleani and Alexander Berkman (look them up). This small core of violent immigrants killed policemen, judges, dynamited Wall Street, killed/maimed many innocent bystanders (at a time when there was no social security disability assistance).

      Our history textbooks tend to leave out pertinent details of what happened around 1920 that gave rise to “xenophobia”. The backlash wasn’t pretty, and was the result of anarchist immigrant violence.

      Don’t think most of the history professors are aware of this… definitely most of their students don’t learn about this chapter of history.

        wondering999, we must have read different books. The history professors are well aware of it. I’ve read leftist stuff and you will find that people like Emma Goldman, events like the Haymarket bombing, Sacco and Vanzetti (although that case is a bit controversial as they were anarchists, but they might not have been guilty as charged) etc are well known. However, they are celebrated, not condemned. The leftist/liberal mindset seems to adore those who would destroy the very state/culture that allows them the free speech to propagate their ideas. I still can’t understand the way that gays, feminists etc support Islamists, when they would be the first against the wall, or thrown off of high buildings, or stoned to death, if they lived under Sharia law.

          Yes, here’s a leftist example, by “Emily Pope-Obeda”
          http://www.solidarity-us.org/node/4640
          “It is telling to note that in the early decades of the 20th century, authority for immigrant removals was vested with the Secretary of Labor; only in 1940 was the Immigration and Naturalization Service (formerly the Bureau of Immigration) transferred from the jurisdiction of the Department of Labor to the Department of Justice, revealing how closely migration restriction was tied to labor control.”

          I attended a Catholic parochial school (I’m not Catholic though) and recall that I first read about this history as a 7th grader. Our history textbook mentioned the Ku Klux Klan as being “anti-Catholic and anti-immigrant” and that it was “different” from the original KKK. However, the details of the bombings, maimings, poisonings that led up to backlash were not provided.

          It wasn’t just the Haymarket bombing. The Wall Street Bombing not only killed 38 people in the area, but also left “hundreds” of innocent people blind, deaf, missing limbs, in chronic pain, in an era where there was virtually no state/public assistance. Imagine how angry the survivors and their thousands of relatives felt towards the immigrant Anarchists. It wasn’t just that they were “afraid of Bolshevism”, as leftist websites claim; families and communities had to care for severely injured relatives for the remainder of their lives, people who had formerly been hardworking, diligent citizens, and responsible for contributing to large extended families. “Angry” or “fearful” doesn’t begin to cover it.

          the way they do it is by misrepresenting the truth, and falsely categorizing most everything as White male supremacy which they insist is oppressive to the marginalized Islamists (etc) who lurk & huddle in shadows, presumably, shaking in their boots…or sandals…or whatever….yearning to be unchained from the horrors of white male supremacy which brought them to our shores, dreaming dreams of solidarity with the other huddled gripers yearning to be forever oppressed.

        No one that was contagious, disabled or “feeble”, their word not mine, was allowed to immigrate.

          Yes, and other countries do the same. If you try to emigrate into Canada, Australia, New Zealand etc. I don’t think they’ll accept you if you can’t pull your own weight. In Snowflake-land this appears cruel, but what is also cruel is that there are so many people in our own country who are inadequately cared for (mentally ill, various disabilities) and like drunkards making false promises, we take in more people without resources to care for them. FIRST we need to be sure we’re taking care of our own citizens before taking more onto a sinking ship of unaffordable healthcare

            There are some people who have founded orphanages and bona fide care homes in other countries where the land, utilities, labor and other resources are less expensive. I’m not talking about exploiters who traffick in children, but rather people who actually take care of the needy. Sometimes that is difficult to do; I remember reading about a former Soviet citizen who tried to donate to an orphanage in Kiev, and the orphanage was getting shakedown threats as a result, from gangsters who wanted more out of him. Anything can get complicated, but there are ways to help that do not involve immigration necessarily.

    • Good stuff

      While on a trip to Italy (Venice) some years ago Easter Sunday fell on my Bday, we were fortunate to get an upstairs table at “Harrys Bar” for lunch, the owner was there and gave us a card with this on it (it was a year after 9-11 if memory serves)
      I later found this had made the “rounds” on the internet…
      Still good.

      Written by an Australian Dentist — and too good to delete.
      To Kill an American
      You probably missed this in the rush of news, but there was actually a report that someone in Pakistan had published in a newspaper, an offer of a reward to anyone who killed an American, any American.
      So an Australian dentist wrote an editorial the following day to let everyone know what an American is. So they would know when they found one. (Good one, mate!!!!)
      An American is English, or French, or Italian, Irish, German, Spanish, Polish, Russian or Greek. An American may also be Canadian, Mexican, African, Indian, Chinese, Japanese, Korean, Australian, Iranian, Asian, or Arab, or Pakistani or Afghan.
      An American may also be a Comanche, Cherokee, Osage, Blackfoot, Navaho, Apache, Seminole or one of the many other tribes known as Native Americans.
      An American is Christian, or he could be Jewish, or Buddhist, or Muslim. In fact, there are more Muslims in America than in Afghanistan. The only difference is that in America they are free to worship as each of them chooses.
      An American is also free to believe in no religion. For that he will answer only to God, not to the government, or to armed thugs claiming to speak for the government and for God.
      An American lives in the most prosperous land in the history of the world.
      The root of that prosperity can be found in the Declaration of Independence, which recognizes the God-given right of each person to the pursuit of happiness.
      An American is generous. Americans have helped out just about every other nation in the world in their time of need, never asking a thing in return.
      When Afghanistan was over-run by the Soviet army 20 years ago, Americans came wi th arms and supplies to enable the people to win back their country!
      As of the morning of September 11, Americans had given more than any other nation to the poor in Afghanistan. Americans welcome the best of everything…the best products, the best books, the best music, the best food, the best services. But, they also welcome the least.
      The national symbol of America , The Statue of Liberty, welcomes your tired and your poor, the wretched refuse of your teeming shores, the homeless, tempest tossed. These in fact are the people who built America .
      Some of them were working in the Twin Towers the morning of September 11, 2001, earning a better life for their families. It’s been told that the World Trade Center victims were from at least 30 different countries, cultures, and first languages, including those that aided and abetted the terrorists.
      So you can try to kill an American if you must. Hitler did. So did General Tojo, and Stalin, and Mao Tse-Tung, and other blood-thirsty tyrants in the world. But, in doing so you would just be killing yourself because Americans are not a particular people from a particular place. They are the embodiment of the human spirit of freedom. Everyone who holds to that spirit, everywhere, is an American.

The same leftists in society at large are also within the Church, the battle has been there for decades and decades. The only difference is that now that they have the papacy, the left’s mask has slipped, and they are doing openly what they have been doing secretly for years.

          I most strenuously disagree. During his life, Pope Benedict XVI has been a great teacher and defender of the faith; some believe he will one day be declared a Doctor of the Church.
          While serving under John Paul II, now a Saint of the Church, he sought to retire on at least three occasions. John Paul II would not agree. When Pope John Paul died, no evidence has ever been presented that he was prepared to do anything but retire and write as he so longed to do.

          So, in the article, the first question is to be most vigorously challenged. First, that the then Jospeh Cardinal Ratzinger had such designs on the papacy that he would betray a life time of service to the Church by such an unscrupulous agreement. Second, that he would necessarily further delay his retirement for anything other than his belief that he had been selected by God through the Conclave to be the next Pontiff. As such, all the the others questions fail as well because the underlying premise is sorely lacking if not utterly false.

            Our Blessed Lord underlined that by their fruits you will know them. The wolves are not constrained by consistency or reason in what they say, so what they say cannot be used as a proof of their Catholic orthodoxy. Their fruits have been unrelentingly and uniformly bad, from Roncalli on. Wojtyla and Ratzinger are no different except in style and speed towards the goal, which is man as god and spiritual communism in view of the “great dignity” of man. Good reading on Wojtyla is Johannes Dormann “Pope John Paul II’s theological journey to the Prayer Meeting of Religions in Assisi” which analyzes his encyclicals and demonstrates he teaches other than the Faith.

          BTW Hamilton is known for distorting the Federalist party (founders etc) taking those policies they set forth in our Government and making that party a centralized policy therefore placing Government OVER the people instead of the founding beliefs that the Government be of by and for the people. This was the foundation that Jefferson opposed vehemently. Jefferson along with all other founders believed the Government to be subserveant to the people period. They despised government but knew it was needed for the common defense hence the sole purpose of our Government outlined in the Constitution is the defense of the nation. Modern day Democrats thanks to Hamilton believe the Government is like God and should be held higher then the common man this is in direct conflict of our founding. I am sure Jefferson would be offended deeply by being placed in this catagory depicted in this drawing.

    Stories for Noah

    Not feeling real good today. My jaw is swollen and I can only open my mouth partially. Got too aggressive with a toothpick trying to dislodge dinner from molars. I am sure the infection will go away shortly. It does remind me of stories where my jaw hurt in the past.

    I was playing in a softball tournament in Bixby, Ok in the early 80’s. It was farm country and us city boys from Tulsa were not well liked. When we arrived there was a guy slapping around a young lady. I jumped in between them and hollered at the guy that isn’t how to treat a woman. I turned around to see how she was doing and she told me to mind my own business. When I turned to face the guy he one timed on the jaw. Knocked me out cold. When I came to I was in a station wagon the guys told me I stepped into a husband wife argument and was an idiot. We lost the first game because I didn’t play, at least that was the excuse that was given. We won the losers bracket and I couldn’t talk for a week.

    My other experience with public fisticuffs was outside a bar in Tulsa. I used to shoot pool at various bars around town. That sometimes led to hairy situations, especially when folks thought they were hustled. We were on a league team representing our local tavern and there was also side action. One night as we were leaving one of the losers was making rude comments to one of the girls with us. He followed us into the parking lot and got very aggressive with her. It didn’t end up well for him. My jaw ended up swollen again but he ended up in the hospital. I guess the moral of the story is don’t pick at your gums with a toothpick, it could bring back memories associated with pain.

    Your dad may be a nutcase today. The Falcons have made it back to the Super Bowl since he was a little boy. Elway killed it that day. Ignore him if Brady does the same thing.

      Have the “Alone” episodes on. Never previously had seen them. “American Pickers” follow. Might check out what movies are on. Have a bit of work to do. Also, dealing with a computer software issue. Oh, and I might, from time to time, got to the NFL homepage to check the progression of the game.

    So I ran into a stupid regulation today. I went to transfer money from my savings to my checkings account (one of these days I’ll move it all out of Wells Fargo) and then I get an alert about exceeding six transfers in a monthly period. Apparently it’s because of this regulation:

    https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Regulation_D_(FRB)

    I just don’t get it. What’s the purpose of this? Why the arbitrary limit of six per monthly period? Is it the Federal Reserve Board giving banks just another way to fine and fee us out of our money? Maybe someone here smarter about financial regulation can give me a convincing reason why this is a good idea, but this regulation just seems stupid to me.

    It’s stuff like this, among many other reasons, why we decided enough was enough and sent President Trump to Washington!

    • It is stupid. It’s been around for years and years, though. I don’t see it going away anytime soon. I generally just transfer more money than I need and then transfer it back. It makes only two transfers instead of however many.

    To deal with the liberal judge, Donald should open a special investigation of Obama. College transcripts, forged birth certificate, phones Social Security number, etc. When it is proven he was NOT born in the U.S., all his appointed judges and other acts can be nullified. T

      I wonder if this will come eventually. In my opinion it certainly isn’t a priority with what he needs to do right now.

    While America is not a Muslim country, the SPIRIT of Islam is gaining ground. Muslims kill anyone who disagree’s with them or “dishonors” them. The left has picked up that spirit. If you disagree with a lefty, you can be beaten to a pulp. Next it will be murder.

    lilbirdee12’s prayer:

    Our Heavenly Father, Your children come to you tonight to ask for healing and peace throughout our country so that we may return to being One Nation Under God. Guide us to be leaders in Your Kingdom, spreading Your Love and Salvation to all. Forgive us our sins and deliver us from evil.

    Lord, we ask for a blanket of protection over all our troops and law enforcement who serve to defend and protect us. Bless our representatives with the strength and wisdom they need to achieve the path You have chosen for us.

    Please place Your Guardian Angels of Protection around Donald Trump and Mike Pence and their families as they seek to lead America back to You.

    Grant us patience, Lord, as the evil ones try to anger us and cause us to fall.
    Spread blessings over Israel and Netanyahu.

    We humbly ask that You please comfort those who are grieving and in pain.
    Thank you Father, for Your Love and the gift of Life.

    In Jesus name, we pray. Amen
