Dung Of The Devil!

There is good news for Catholics, and there is bad news for Catholic Republicans seeking the nomination for President. Pope Francis came out swinging against unbridled capitalism which he termed to be the “dung of the devil.” He made clear that Catholics cannot be only concerned with the “mentality of profit at any price.” He also connected the attitudes of modern capitalists as reflecting a “new colonialism” which ignores the rights of those who labor for basic needs. Workers have “sacred rights of labor, lodging and land.”

One knows that Marco Rubio and Rick Santorum and Jeb Bush, who are Catholics, will challenge the right of unbridled capitalism on the ground that gathering wealth in the long run benefits those who are poor. OH, what can these Catholics make of the Pope Francis claim that “Mother Earth” must be respected. I don’t think our coal companies will be pleased with the argument our Mother Earth should not be abused, anymore than poor people should be.

Handling Gang Wars

Finally, someone who runs a police department got fired. Baltimore Mayor Stephanie Rawlings Blake has discharged her top cop, Anthony Batts,not merely for the fiasco surrounding the death of Freddie Gray in a police van, but for handling demonstrations and the rise in crime. Here in Chicago, death is a constant visitor within poor areas as gangs fight one another with guns and destruction. So,how about a few new ideas:

1. Bring together gang leaders and offer to pay them for reducing crime within there area of operation.

2. Instead of sending people to jail for non-violent crimes, pay them one-fourth the cost of being in jail for not being a criminal.

3. Create a UN organization of criminal gangs to work together for peace.

4. Work with corporations to organize new economic developments in crime areas.

These steps can not be any worse than what occurs these days.

Mouth Never Ceases Roaring!

There are few certainties in life, but if one lives in the United States of America one knows that sometime today, the red headed guy will utter some profound observation of life. OK,so there were some unconfirmed comments by certain members of the LIBERAL media that claim the Red Headed one said something nasty about Mexicans. Well, Donald once again trumped those making false accusations against the only man ready,willing, and able to defeat any terrorist group with one hand tied behind his back. “I have a great relationship with the Mexican people. I have many legal immigrants working for me. And,most of them come from Mexico! They love me. I love them. And, I’ll tell you something. If I get the nomination, I’ll win the Latino vote!!”

When Donald says he will do something,he will do it. That’s OK, he is willing to give Hillary the Armenian vote.

Marco Rubio On Cuba

WE decided to interview Senator Rubio as to what should be American policy toward Cuba.

M: So, Marco,your family is from Cuba so I assume that this topic is among those you understand very well.

R: My family escaped from Cuba in order to demonstrate their opposition to the Castro gang.

M: I believe your father arrived in America in 1956 but Castro did not assume power until 1959

R: Let’s not play liberal tricks, my grandparents hate Castro, my father hates Castro, my mother hates Castro, and so do I!

M: Ok, no more quibbling about minor issues. So, what should policy be towards Cuba?

R: Isolation. Pretend there is no Cuba.

M: I sort of thought that has been our policy for over fifty years.

R: Well, continue this policy and I am certain the people of Cuba will rebel.

M: Will you lead a band of Cuban patriots and overthrow Castro?

R: Excuse me, I do not believe in violence.

M: So, how do we end the Castro brothers?

R: Patience. Fifty five years is not enough. Just hold firm and I guarantee that within 100 years the Castro brothers will be dead. Problem solves.

Mouth That Always Roars Nonsense

Donal Trump simply cannot nor will not cease his war against those from Mexico. Donald so enjoys coming across as a man of action and one who understands how to win battles. I grant that he can win a battle over which building to purchase and which business decision will result in profits. He now has zeroed in on Francisco Sanzhez, a man who was deported five times only to return to America. He shot and murdered Kathryn Steinle who was walking on the Embarcadero in San Francisco. As I recall, there is a young native born Christian white male who just murdered several people in South Carolina.

Donald has used the murder as justification as “yet another example of why we must secure the border immediately” I assume that Donald would agree there is a need to construct a wall around South Carolina and secure our border against death from evil people. He will NOT cease his wild talk since it results in right wing fanatics supporting his desire to become president. And, just remember, he is ready to spend a billion dollars in that effort. I wonder if he will have Sheldon Adelson as his running mate?

Who CaresAbout Environment?

Just about any article that includes any reference to Justice Anthony Scalia includes a line about his wonderful mind that allegedly is the hallmark of this brilliant legal scholar. Justice Scalia wrote the majority opinion in a decision dealing with efforts to curb pollution. The Environment Protection Agency has been seeking to impose limits as to how business enterprises can pollute. Justice Scalia used the argument that imposing such regulations would impair profits of business. In other words any equation dealing with pollution must take care not to impose restrictions as to how much business enterprises can earn in profit.

This from a man who claims to be a legal scholar. If the issue is preserving this planet,then profits be damned! The only equation worth a damn these days is the one which places survival of the planet first and first and first!

Donald Is Upset

There are moments when I would so wish to be a bug who resides inside the head of Donald Trump in order to grasp the working of a mind that is intent on winning the nomination for president. The other day he informed America that hordes of Mexicans were swarming over the border and “they are bringing drugs, crime and rapists” into our fair nation. NBC reacted with vengeance and made clear to the Trump man that his services were no longer needed and he could pack up his Mss America and Miss Universe events and no longer come to their TV studios. “At NBC, respect and dignity for all people are the cornerstone of our values. Due to the recent derogatory statement by Donald Trump regarding immigrants, NBCUniversal is ending its business relationships with Mr. Trump.”

This is shocking news for those who believe in the Trump man.I strongly support the efforts of Donald Trump to run for president. Just imagine, each day he is in the race, anyone writing about politics has a material for comic comments. Of course, the Donald Man is upset at the “weak and foolish” ideas of NBC. OH,and Donald wants all them rapists and drug lords to know that “I love Mexican people.”

On The “N” Word

President Barack Obama did it again. In his efforts to create division and hate between whites and blacks this leader decided to employ the “n” word. In case, you do not know what the “n” word is, let me spell it out in black and white. The word is NIGGER. Just writing this word is sufficient to make people go mad with anger. I was raised with a lot of such words:

Kike for Jews

Sheenie for Jews

Dagos for Italians

Micks for Irish

Honkies for Hungarians.

Wops for Italians

Pope Lover for Catholics

I just wrote these words and life goes on. No word ever killed a person. But, lack of food, lack of health care, lack of decent housing, lack of education, lack of freedom from guns–did result in the loss of life.

Refugees Continue Walking And Sailing

There are those who continually complain about the massive numbers of refugees who are seeking new homes in more economically advanced nations. People like Dylann Roof believe that the United States of America is being overwhelmed by the hordes of people heading for our shores. Europe believe their very existence is threatened by African or Muslim “invaders” seeking to “take over their nations.” A brief examination of history makes clear this is not the first such “invasion,” and those of the past were much more severe.

1. Thousands of years ago Neanderthals were invaded by Cro-Magnons who soon took over their lands and sent them into extinction.

2. Invaders from England and other European nations not only invaded the New World, but wiped out untold millions in the process.

3. MY parents were among the horde of dirty, poor, desperate invaders who came to America seeking a new life. Between 1890-1925 about TWENTY FIVE MILLION IMMIGRANTS FROM EUROPE arrived in America. Just about everything being said concerning Africans or Muslims was said about this group.

Newcomers have been wandering from one place to another for about 50,000 years, Calm down, one day the newcomers will be the oldcomers and saying the same things about the newcomers!

Climate Change Wars!

Before getting into this story I must confess that I am not a scientist and therefore obtain my science news from blond haired women onFox News. They may not be scientists,but they can read the cards that are displayed to assist the ignorant to pretend to know something about everything. Joseph Kurtz, Archbishop of Louisville, announced that Catholics have a responsibility to help save this planet, the one that Jesus came to bring peace and love to. He hailed the encyclical issued by the notorious LIBERAL, Pope Francis, which made clear what over 95% of real scientists have been saying–humans are altering the climate on this planet.

“It’s our marching orders for advocacy. It really brings a new urgency to us.”He was joined by Reverend Canon Sally who said: “I really think it will change enough minds to get the critical mass we need to get our house in order and cut greenhouse emissions.” Of course, the real scientists in the Republican party know that climate always changes. So, why the rush? It rains one day and the sun shines the next. They understand about this topic, after all, they listen to the scientists on Fox News!
