Retroactive Abortion Update.

I can't see why she had to do any time at all.

WCSH: Woman Who Drowned Daughters To Go Free After Two Years
A Texas woman who drowned her two children in 2003 has been ruled mentally stable and will be freed from a state hospital. Lisa Diaz drowned her three-year-old and five-year-old daughters by holding their heads under water in the bathtub of their home.

Kill 'em! Kill 'em all 'cause they get on your nerves, cost a lot of money and don't pay a dime in taxes!

Happy 231st Birthday to the United States Marine Corps!

Sadly, the Corps' new museum is a hideous architectural monstrosity. Keep your eyes on the sidewalk until you are safely inside, kiddies. I am sure the exhibits are worth your time.

There is a two year window of opportunity...

AP: Israel official: Strike on Iran possible
JERUSALEM - The deputy defense minister suggested Friday that Israel might be forced to launch a military strike against Iran's disputed nuclear program — the clearest statement yet of such a possibility from a high-ranking official.

BAGHDAD - Al-Qaida in Iraq claimed in a new audio tape Friday to be winning the war faster than expected in Iraq and said it had mobilized 12,000 fighters who had "vowed to die for God's sake."

International criminals rejoice!

Why, lookee here, kiddies! Voting left-fascist does have consequences!

CBS News: Lame-Duck Senate Won't Approve Bolton
President Bush resubmitted John Bolton's nomination to be U.S. Ambassador to the U.N., hoping a GOP-led Senate would move ahead on the stalled process. But Democrats and a key Republican quickly said they continue to oppose the controversial nominee.

All the fat, psychotic bureaucrats and the child-raping "soldiers" of the Utopia Upon the Hudson are sportin' woodies now, because they know they won't be opposed by a real man like John Bolton for the foreseeable future.

Some of our allies remember...

Fyodor's Pro Football Picks of the Week.

1) The guys who set the lines are professionals. Their job is to make each game look as attractive as possible to everyone. That way they even out the amount of money bet on each side.

Instant translation: The house wins no matter who wins. That's why people get into the gambling business.

2) I am just a fan. I won't even keep track of these picks week to week if it gets too embarrassing.

3) There is no such thing as "inside information". Especially in the pros.

4) If those idiot touts on tv and in the paper were any good, they wouldn't go public with their genius. They'd sit at Harrah's sports book from open to close and then go out and buy $2,000 an hour hookers who dress like high school girls.

5) Gambling is stupid. You cannot win.

That being said, here are my NFL picks for this week.

The Jaguars will play conservatively. Pick Houston.
FINAL: Texans 13 Jaguars 10 - Fyodor wins! (Finally!)


Kansas City (-1.5) at Miami
Did the Dolphins earn this much respect by beating the Bears? I think that was just Rex Grossman. Take the Chiefs.

Monday 11/13


Tampa Bay (+9.5) at Carolina
On a hunch, I'll go with the Bucs on the road.
FINAL: Panthers 24 Buccaneers 10 - Fyodor loses! (UGGGGGGGGGGGGGGHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!)

Fyodor's College Football Picks of the Week.

1) The guys who set the lines are professionals. Their job is to make each game look as attractive as possible to everyone. That way they even out the amount of money bet on each side.

Instant translation: The house wins no matter who wins. That's why people get into the gambling business.

2) I am just a fan. I won't even keep track of these picks week to week if it gets too embarrassing.

3) There is no such thing as "inside information". Especially in the pros.

4) If those idiot touts on tv and in the paper were any good, they wouldn't go public with their genius. They'd sit at Harrah's sports book from open to close and then go out and buy
$2,000 an hour hookers who dress like high school girls.

That being said, here are my college picks for this week.

FINAL: Florida 17 South Carolina 16 - Fyodor wins! (The Gators should have dropped farther in the stinking BCS standings! Their offense is pitiful and they should be ashamed of this performance in The Swamp. Go Rutgers!)

FINAL: Notre Dame 39 Air Force 17 - Fyodor wins! (The Fighting Irish also should be ranked ahead of Florida. Go Rutgers!)

I'm taking the Demon Deacons, baby!

Choke on it, Hugo.

WCAX: Citgo signs coming down in response to Venezuelan leader's remarks

(Johnson City, NY) - Seven weeks after Venezuelan president Hugo Chavez lashed out at President Bush during a United Nations speech, the Citgo signs at some convenience stores in upstate New York and Pennsylvania are disappearing.

Citgo is Venezuela's state-owned oil company.

Chavez's remarks inspired calls for a boycott of the company in the United States. Citgo signs are coming down at several Kwik Fill and Red Apple stores operated by United Refining Company in the Binghamton area.

A United Refining spokesman told Binghamton radio station WNBF the move is — quote — "because of Chavez and what he said at the UN."

United Refining is based in Warren, Pennsylvania.

A qualified "congrats" to United Refining. It's the money that counts, not just the signs...

From Ghana to the gridiron.

What does an African kid who is too big to play soccer and wants to study actuarial science do? Why, he comes to Pennsylvania and plays D-III football, that's what.

Lancaster Ignorancer-Urinal: Warming to the task

LANCASTER, Pa. - Fufu and football make a rather odd combination in the minds of most people.

Not for Powis Forjoe, a 19-year-old student at Franklin & Marshall College.

Forjoe is spending his first semester at F&M, some 5,000 miles from his native home in Ghana, majoring in actuarial science.

He takes four classes, works at the library on campus and continues to search for some good fufu, his favorite dish from back home.

In the little spare time he does have, Forjoe is doing something he never thought possible, playing football for coach John Troxell.

He’d never set foot on a football field until F&M’s first practice this past summer.

“I was so lost, I didn’t know what was happening,” recalled Forjoe, who even needed help putting his equipment on. “I mean, the first practice I was so confused. I really wanted to quit, but I decided to stick with it.”

Forjoe knew about football, but after arriving here last January it was the last thing he could have imagined he’d be doing some seven months later.

Those thoughts were focused on the weather.

“First thing I thought when I got here, it was cold,” said Forjoe. “Back home is way different. It doesn’t get cold. I am always cold here now.”

Ghana, roughly the size of Oregon with a population of 21 million people, is located in western Africa with the Atlantic Ocean to the south. There are two main seasons, the rainy season and the dry season. The dry season starts around late August and ends in February.

It is always hot, but does not get real humid as it does here.

Growing up in Accra, Ghana’s capitol city, Forjoe was surrounded by everything soccer and never played football, as played in the U.S.

“Soccer is the biggest thing in all of Africa,” said Forjoe, listed as 6-feet-6, 269 pounds. “I just didn’t have the coordination for soccer. I played basketball instead, because I was no good at soccer.”

Following high school, Forjoe realized none of Ghana’s five universities would be able to satisfy his quest for a degree in actuarial science, so he decided to look abroad.

Joshua Osei Boeh-Ocansey, his best friend since second grade, was already coming to F&M, so Forjoe wanted to follow his path to Lancaster.

One of eight children, Forjoe arrived at F&M last winter, several months after his best friend due to delays in getting a visa.

Here, he befriended Dan Westfield, a Diplomat football player.

Eventually, Forjoe became interested in learning more.

“When he walked in, I saw a big kid with a big smile,” recalled Troxell of the day Forjoe approached him about playing. “I told him it was going to be harder than any other thing he had done. I don’t know if he believed me or not.”

He didn’t.

“I definitely underestimated football,” said Forjoe. “I did not think it was this advanced. I didn’t realize how much of a team sport it really was. Everyone has to do exactly what they’re supposed to do for it to work.”

Forjoe, considered a sophomore, continues to work hard at practice and likes to play defense.

“He’s been great and the team has really taken to him,” said Troxell. “You can’t ask for a better kid. He fits the F&M mold perfectly and is a perfect example of what we want to see in students and athletes.”

Through F&M’s first nine games, Forjoe has not seen any playing time. He’s fine with that, saying he knows his role.

“I’m not getting frustrated,” said Forjoe, who plans to graduate from F&M in 2009. “I understand why they’re not putting me in games, because I’m not good enough to play in games right now. I’m satisfied with where I am right now.”

Forjoe will go home for the holidays to see his family, share some pigskin tales, and perhaps best of all, get the home-cooked meal he’s longed for since January.

“That will be nice,” he said.

A loss for BIG SODOMY.

AP: Israel sodomite parade canceled amid opposition; rally planned

JERUSALEM - Gay leaders on Thursday canceled a parade in Jerusalem amid security concerns and pressure from fundamentalist religious leaders who called such a public display in the holy city offensive.

The Gay Pride parade scheduled for Friday drew opposition from Jews, Christians and Muslims, while hundreds of ultra-Orthodox Jews vented their disapproval by clashing with police and burning trash bins in the streets several nights over the past week.

Be very careful where you place your pride, kiddies.

Police had planned to post 9,000 officers to protect marchers, but authorities asked organizers to scale back the gathering amid reprisal threats after errant Israeli artillery shells killed 18 Palestinian civilians in Gaza on Wednesday.

Organizers agreed Thursday to turn the public parade into a rally, held inside a closed stadium.

The Jewish crackup continues apace.

This is the kind of nonsense I expect from the goat rapists.

KSAT: Crucifix Over Ballot Box Upsets Jewish Voter

MIDDLETON, Wis. -- In Wisconsin, a Jewish man whose polling place was at a Catholic church said he was disturbed to see a crucifix hanging over a ballot box.

Where's Jackie Mason when we need him? He'd put this pansy in his place.

Dr. Zeev Bar-Av of Middleton said issues on Tuesday's ballot such as gay marriage and the death penalty "are essentially on the national divide on religion and non-religion."

Grow up and get over it, Doc. It's obvious something that smells like fascism is getting in the way of your Judaism.

The 65-year-old Middleton man said, "If there is a place where church and state should be separated, the polling place should be it."

Wisconsin Elections Board executive director Kevin Kennedy said the state and municipalities struggle to come up with adequate polling places, and churches have plenty of parking. He adds that polling places don't have to be redecorated to protect voters from feeling uncomfortable, and voters who are bothered can always vote absentee.

Saint of the Day and daily Mass readings.

Today is the Feast of St. Leo the Great.

He was born in Tuscany. As deacon, he was dispatched to Gaul as a mediator by Emperor Valentinian III. He reigned as Pope between 440 and 461. He persuaded Emperor Valentinian to recognize the primacy of the Bishop of Rome in an edict in 445. The doctrine of the Incarnation was formed by him in a letter to the Patriarch of Constantinople, who had already condemned Eutyches. At the Council of Chalcedon this same letter was confirmed as the expression of Catholic Faith concerning the Person of Christ.

All secular historical treatises eulogize his efforts during the upheaval of the fifth century barbarian invasion. His encounter with Attila the Hun, at the very gates of Rome persuading him to turn back, remains a historical memorial to his great eloquence. When the Vandals under Genseric occupied the city of Rome, he persuaded the invaders to desist from pillaging the city and harming its inhabitants. He died in 461, leaving many letters and writings of great historical value.

Pray for us, all you angels and saints.

Today's reading for the Feast of St. Leo the Great is Ecclisiasticus 39:6-10.
Today's Responsorial Psalm is
Psalms 37:3-4, 5-6, 30-31.
Today's Gospel reading is
Matthew 16:13-19.

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.


Memorare

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.


Prayer Before The Crucifix

Behold, O kind and gentle Jesus, I kneel before Thee and pray that Thou would impress upon my heart the virtues of faith, hope, and charity, with true repentance for my sins and a firm purpose of amendment. At the same time, with sorrow I meditate on Thy five precious wounds, having in mind the words which David spoke in prophecy: "They have pierced my hands and my feet. I can count all my bones."


Divine Praises

Blessed be God.
Blessed be His Holy Name.
Blessed be Jesus Christ, true God and true Man.
Blessed be the Name of Jesus.
Blessed be His most Sacred Heart.
Blessed be His most Precious Blood.
Blessed be Jesus in the most Holy Sacrament of the Altar.
Blessed be the Holy Spirit, the Paraclete.
Blessed be the great Mother of God, Mary most holy.
Blessed be her holy and Immaculate Conception.
Blessed be her glorious Assumption.
Blessed be the name of Mary, Virgin and Mother.
Blessed be Saint Joseph, her most chaste spouse.
Blessed be God in His angels and in His saints.
May the Heart of Jesus in the most Blessed Sacrament
Be praised, adored and loved
With grateful affection at every moment
In all the tabernacles of the world
Even to the end of time. 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.
