It seems Pope Francis needs to brush up on his Tertullian!

It has been reported (in The ChristLast Media, I must note) that the current Pope does not like the phrase "lead us not into temptation...

"Let no freedom be allowed to novelty, because it is not fitting that any addition should be made to antiquity. Let not the clear faith and belief of our forefathers be fouled by any muddy admixture." -- Pope Sixtus III

'Alex's Lemonade' Charity Hit by Thieves

How sad is this one, kiddies?

Police in Haverford Township (Delaware County), Pa. are looking for thieves who stole money from the charitable organization "Alex’s Lemonade Stand."

Police say they have surveillance tape that appears to show four juveniles breaking into the foundation’s Ardmore office last weekend. They rummaged through the offices and stole a substantial amount of cash that was raised to fight cancer.

Liz Scott (left) says the break-in came just days before the second anniversary of her daughter’s death:

"The fact that they stole cash which was raised at lemonade stands to me was just beyond upsetting. It really was disturbing, and I felt like it was very disrespectful to the cause and to Alex.”

Alex Scott died of cancer at age 8, four years after she began the fundraising effort that bears her name (file photo above). As of May 2006, her national campaign has raised over $6 million for childhood cancer research.

Anyone with information on the robbery is asked to call Haverford police.

The signature of all Democrat ranking committee members on a call for the pullout of troops to begin from Iraq this year is an important event in setting the stage for the 2006 elections. It means Republicans can no longer claim the opposition is divided and unclear on the Iraq question.

The imminent passage this week of the combined estate-tax-minimum-wage-pension bill (see below) constitutes another Republican retreat in the eyes of the conservative Republican base. The 41 percent increase in the minimum wage follows the education and prescription-drug subsidies as deviations from conservative doctrine.

They will reap what they have sown.

Neutral Republicans believe Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney has the organizational head start in the '08 presidential primary, in contrast to his anemic standing in the popular opinion polls. Romney looks particularly good in Iowa.


One of former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani's closest political friends assures us that he definitely is running for President. The answer by this backer as to how he possibly could win the Republican nomination with his liberal social agenda is that he would govern from the right as he did in New York City.

Great. Two babykillers and sodomite appeasers plus Senator War Hero. Way to go, Repansycans.

Bush Administration

Middle East War: The current crisis in Lebanon is an example of unmet expectations by the U.S. and its Israeli allies.

Bush Administration officials accepted at its word Israeli government predictions that the IDF could clean up the Hezbollah in a week. Now, three weeks later, Hezbollah has come over as a formidable military unit that is far from being swept away.

The Israeli (and U.S.) problem is that the current Israeli government wants neither to conduct a full-scale land war in Lebanon nor to sit down at the negotiating table. That leaves limited war -- airpower and cross-border raids -- which is not working quickly enough.

The result is that the fabled IDF has suffered a severe a blow to its prestige, while the U.S. position in the Muslim world is worse than ever. That only increases the pressure on the IDF to win its limited war against Hezbollah.

Because of domestic political considerations, there is rare bipartisan support for offensive Israeli action. (A rare exception is Sen. Chuck Hagel (R-Neb.), who delivered a Brookings speech last Friday urging the U.S. role as an honest broker.) But inside the State Department, there are complaints that the U.S. is bound too much to Israel and should open a negotiating channel with Syria.

Chuck Hegel is an ass. We should drop him into Lebanon and see which side he looks to for help. (Senator Ass-hat?)

And now, behold the beauty and horror of politics:


Pensions-Wages: In a typical act of legislative brinksmanship, the imperious retiring House Ways and Means Chairman Bill Thomas (R-Calif.) left town for the August recess after shoving through a complicated bill which the Senate must now pass, untouched, or else risk grave and dramatic real-world consequences.

This bill has been referred to all fall as the "last train" of the legislative session, the final vehicle for tax and spending provisions. If it passes the Senate, the bill will simultaneously (1) raise the exemption and lower the rate on the estate tax, (2) raise the minimum wage by 41 percent, (3) extend tax credits and deductions (mostly for corporations, but also for higher-education expenses), and (4) overhaul the antiquated defined-benefit pension systems of several large corporations, which face an estimated $450 billion shortfall.

As complicated as the bill is the political situation that surrounds it, now that Thomas and the rest of the House have left until after Labor Day. The acerbic but brilliant Thomas thumbed his nose at a bipartisan, bicameral group of his enemies by painting them all into a corner with his multi-purpose bill. What's more, he's almost certain to get his way.

Senate Finance Chairman Charles Grassley (R-Iowa), Thomas's Senate counterpart and arch-enemy, was furious about Thomas's maneuver. Grassley had planned to sweeten his version of the pension bill with the tax-extension measure, but Thomas effectively cut him out of negotiations altogether. Thomas showed incredible gall by refusing to walk across the Capitol to meet with Senators, letting them cool their heels for hours while waiting for him and other House members.

An enraged Grassley later burst uninvited into a meeting of House Republican leaders. He and Thomas, long locked in mutual contempt, attacked each other face-to-face at a Thursday night meeting. But Grassley was undercut by Senate Majority Leader Bill Frist's (R-Tenn.) support of Thomas's plan.

Thomas, the fabled legislative mechanic, didn't need to negotiate -- he arranged it all himself. He added $3.9 billion over 10 years for an "abandoned mine lands" program to attract mining state Democrats, perhaps including Sen. Robert Byrd (D-W.Va.) and to help Sen. Rick Santorum (R-Pa.). He put in the bill state and local tax deductions and deductions for higher-education expenses, among other goodies. Earlier, the bill took on a timber tax break intended to snare Democratic Sen. Maria Cantwell, who is facing a vigorous re-election challenge in Washington state.

Each part of Thomas's bill has its own importance, but two parts represent must-pass legislation that cannot be minimized or reduced as though they involved mere policy discussions. They have real-world implications that would be seriously harmful for several big players. The first was the pension provision. A failure to pass it by the September 13 deadline would actually mandate a federal bailout of two airlines -- Northwest and Delta. If the Senate does not pass Thomas's exact bill and send it to the President before leaving town later this week, Congress will probably miss that deadline. These air carriers do not spend millions on lobbyists so that they can let such deadlines pass and crush their businesses.

The other hard deadline is the extension of some 40 expiring corporate-tax breaks. Unless passed by the September 15 tax deadline, many corporations will have to adjust third-quarter guidance numbers and possibly restate their earnings for earlier quarters this year. Corporations hate to do this. It would be devastating for several companies' stock prices, and worst of all, it would antagonize executives just as members of both parties are trolling for their cash.

Interestingly, the most politically charged parts of the bill are also the most legislatively irrelevant. The estate-tax measure does not actually repeal the tax. This comes thanks to the lobbying of the pro-estate tax life insurance industry, and to the relief of Warren Buffet and other wealthy venture capitalists who make it part of their investment strategy to prey on small-business victims of the "death tax."


Likewise, the federal minimum-wage increase is mostly an ineffective, populist gesture, although it is good politics for Democrats. Its main effect will be to eliminate low-skill jobs in areas with a low cost of living and to deprive teen-agers of summer work. (The average wage of a family containing a minimum-wage worker in the U.S. is $45,500.) But it also affects relatively few businesses in a big way -- only 6.6 million Americans currently make less than $7.25 per hour, which will become the new minimum wage in 2009. The provision, long opposed by Republicans, has a new appeal to them as part of this larger bill, considering the approach of the fall election. It defuses a good Democratic issue, especially considering that so many House Democrats voted against it.

That was the plan, but...

On the other hand, the moderate Thomas has clearly led the GOP House to violate conservative doctrines. In accepting this bill, Republican lawmakers cast doubt on what they really believe. How bizarre to hear Thomas and other Republicans praise an increase in the minimum wage. Conservatives such as Representatives Mike Pence (R-Ind.) and Jeff Flake (R-Ariz.) tried to soften the higher minimum wage's impact on small businesses by joining it with a free-market plan to cut their health-care costs -- but they were told this would be doomed in the Senate by the "Big Blues" (Blue Cross and Blue Shield).

That a lame-duck committee chairman like Thomas could so dominate Congress is a sign of weak leadership in both the House and Senate, as well as a President detached from the legislative process. At this writing, all this will be passed untouched by the Senate by week's end. But most Democrats are opposed, chiding Republicans that they became devoted to a higher minimum wage only if tied to the estate tax. Having abandoned its principles, the GOP can't even get credit from its opposition.

Sowing and reaping. Sowing and reaping.

What I did on my summer vacation by Ann Coulter

The smoking hot and always right Ann Coulter bitch-slaps the cretinous Baltimore Sun and provides many hearty chuckles for anyone to the right of Stalin.

Being on a book tour also means answering questions such as the following, which were left out of a Baltimore Sun article due to length. I hope you enjoy my responses, and look for me in fine bookstores everywhere this summer.

SUN: The last time we spoke, you told me you're routinely misquoted by newspaper reporters. What are a couple of the more egregious examples? Why does this happen?

A: It happens so much, I don't even keep track of it anymore. The last one I remember was when I said "cutting the tax rate on capital gains seems to have increased tax receipts for fiscal 2006, just as supply-side economics predicted it would." It came out in the paper as, "I worship Adolf Hitler and share all of his goals, especially the 'final solution' to the 'Jewish problem.'"

I have no idea how it happens, given the strict objectivity and rigid nonpartisanship of the American media.

Yeah, it must have been a typo.

SUN: The mainstream press is in economic trouble. Any comments on how they're reacting?

A: They are reacting with the same hysterical leftism that drove readers away in the first place.

SUN: Bill Keller said The New York Times published the Swift banking story because of the public's right to know. Do you think he thinks that? Why did he publish it? What is the job description of a metro daily newspaper editor?

A: I don't like it when people ask me if I meant what I said or wrote, so I'll take him at his word and assume that he really means what he said: that anyone who reads The New York Times, including our enemies, is entitled to information about secret government programs being used to track terrorists, which means he's either (a) a complete moron or (b) a traitor.

From your lips to the Justice Department's ear.

An editor's job is to edit, which should not be confused with "to release sensitive information that can help the enemy during a war."

SUN: Why is abortion sacrosanct to the left? Why have Democrats chosen this as their hill to die on? Why is evolution so important to liberals?

A: Because they basically want to depopulate the world of human beings, hence their love of abortion and their commitment to a belief system that does not distinguish men from lower beasts.

Don't blame Ann here, kiddies. It is impossible to manage a laugh over the corpses of kids. Unless your IQ has sunk to the level of Howie Spleen.

SUN: Have you encountered anyone on the left who has read "Godless" carefully and was willing to debate its points with you? How'd it go? Have any critics addressed the content rationally? If so, what did you think? If not, do you find it amusing?

A: Only one: Michael Eric Dyson. The rest just want to talk about why my skirts are so short and why I'm "mean." It's almost as if my critics are avoiding the issues I write about in the book.

Q: Does Hillary Clinton have a good chance in 2008? What are her strengths and weaknesses? What did her reaction to your "Jersey girls" comments tell you about her as a potential candidate?

A: Good chance of what? Coming out of the closet? I'd say that's about even money. Her strength is her first name; her weakness is her last.

Ewwwww...How icky is that? Hitlery Schicklgruber (N-NY) has nobody to blame but herself. Walking around in jackboots and pretending you are powerful is bound to attract the weirdos.

SUN: Any comments on ...

A: Joe Biden: See my remarks on Neil Kinnock.


David Gregory: The man with no principles, no credibility and no last name.


Kofi Annan: That guy? Isn't he on the ground fighting with Hezbollah?

The Oil for Bribes guy. Remember?

Katie Couric: The affable Eva Braun of evening TV.


Tony Snow: Cool guy.

Tom DeLay: How does Tom "soon to be acquitted and re-elected" DeLay grab you?

How cool would that be?

Rush Limbaugh: First runner-up for Mount Rushmore.

Joe Wilson: You mean Valerie Plame's clueless hubby? Whatever happened to that moron?

Sorry, the name doesn't ring a bell.

Dan Rather: Reports of his contrition are greatly exaggerated.

Isn't he the guy on tv who used to pretend he knew what was going on during all those Apollo space missions?

Cynthia McKinney: One of the most intelligent Democrats in the country.

HEEHEE! Well, smack me with a cell phone and call me racist!

SUN: Any other wild, hippie-esque practices we should know about?

A: You mean other than the fact that I live in a filthy van with a dog, a gentleman I refer to as "my old man" and our daughter "Diversity Seagull," and we make our living weaving hemp baskets? No, not really.

SUN: How would your career be different if you looked like Molly Ivins?

Who? The country rockers from the 1970's?

No...that's Molly Hatchet.

A: I'd be a lot uglier.

SUN: Now that the "Slander/Treason/Godless" trilogy is finished, what's your next big project?

A: Finishing this interview. What are you, writing a book or something?

Nikolai Volkoff Update.

The Repansycan about to be upset by former wrestling great Nikolai Volkoff speaks.

From the Towson Times:

Rick Impallaria isn't one to hold his tongue.

The Republican delegate from Essex was elected to his first term in 2002 and says his constituents expect him to speak his mind.

"There's a culture of 'keep your mouth shut' in Annapolis," said Impallaria, who represents the 7th District. "I'm like the little girl in the fairy tale who said the king isn't wearing any clothes."

Ummm...yeah...That pretty much clinches it for me.

Vote Volkoff!

Finally! A place to keep that pesky Kerry '04 campaign strategy.

Saint of the Day and daily Mass readings.

Today is the Feast of St. John Mary Vianney, who is also known as the Cure of Ars. He is the patron of priests and used to hear people's confessions for sixteen hours each day. Apparently, men in the 1800's were much more wicked than we modern folk who see no need to partake of the Sacrament of Penance. Pray for us, all you angels and saints.

Today's reading for the Feast of St. John Vianney is
Jeremias 26:1-9.
Today's Responsorial Psalm is
Psalms 69:6, 8-10, 14.
Today's Gospel reading is
Matthew 13:54-58.

Just in case you are wondering what exactly Catholics believe, here is

The Apostles Creed

I believe in God, the Father Almighty, Creator of Heaven and earth; and in Jesus Christ, His only Son Our Lord, Who was conceived by the Holy Spirit, born of the Virgin Mary, suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, died, and was buried.He descended into Hell; the third day He rose again from the dead; He ascended into Heaven, and sitteth at the right hand of God, the Father almighty; from thence He shall come to judge the living and the dead.I believe in the Holy Spirit, the holy Catholic Church, the communion of saints, the forgiveness of sins, the resurrection of the body and life everlasting. Amen.


Remember, O most gracious Virgin Mary, that never was it known that any one who fled to thy protection, implored thy help or sought thy intercession,was left unaided.Inspired with this confidence, I fly unto thee, O Virgin of virgins my Mother; to thee do I come, before thee I stand, sinful and sorrowful; O Mother of the Word Incarnate, despise not my petitions, but in thy clemency hear and answer me. Amen.

St. Joseph, her most chaste spouse, pray for us.

Anima Christi

Soul of Christ, sanctify me; Body of Christ, save me; Blood of Christ, inebriate me; Water from Christ's side, wash me; Passion of Christ, strengthen me; O good Jesus, hear me; Within Thy wounds hide me; Suffer me not to be separated from Thee; From the malicious enemy defend me; In the hour of my death call me; And bid me come unto Thee; That I may praise Thee with Thy saints and with Thy angels Forever and ever. Amen.

Prayer to St. Anthony, Martyr of Desire

Dear St. Anthony, you became a Franciscan with the hope of shedding your blood for Christ. In God's plan for you, your thirst for martyrdom was never to be satisfied. St. Anthony, Martyr of Desire, pray that I may become less afraid to stand up and be counted as a follower of the Lord Jesus. Intercede also for my other intentions. (Name them.)

Prayer To Saint Michael The Archangel

St. Michael the Archangel, defend us in 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 divine power, thrust into hell Satan and all the evil spirits who prowl about the world seeking the ruin of souls. Amen.

Prayer to End Abortion

Lord God, I thank You today for the gift of my life, and for the lives of all my brothers and sisters. I know there is nothing that destroys more life than abortion, yet I rejoice that you have conquered death by the resurrection of Your Son. I am ready to do my part to end abortion. Today I commit myself never to be silent, never to be passive, and never to be forgetful of the unborn. I commit myself to be active in the pro-life movement, and never stop defending life until all my brothers and sisters are protected and our nation once again becomes a nation with liberty and justice, not just for some, but for all. Through Christ our Lord. Amen.

Prayer For Vocations

Send forth your Spirit, Lord, into the hearts of your faithful people, that we may be conscious of our vocation to holiness and sevice to others. Grant that many of us may dedicate ourselves to You through the priesthood and the religious life.We pray especially for the needs of our own parish and diocese. Grant that we may always have sufficient good and holy priests, and dedicated Sisters to serve our commumities.We pray, too, for religious orders; that generous men may join them to become zealous missionaries in preaching the Gospel in word and action, especially to the poor and abandoned.We make this prayer through Jesus Christ, Our Lord and Redeemer. Amen.

About Me

My photo
First of all, the word is SEX, not GENDER. If you are ever tempted to use the word GENDER, don't. The word is SEX! SEX! SEX! SEX! For example: "My sex is male." is correct. "My gender is male." means nothing. Look it up. What kind of sick neo-Puritan nonsense is this? Idiot left-fascists, get your blood-soaked paws off the English language. Hence I am choosing "male" under protest.
