Tito is the real master of blogging the news, and I love how he is like a one man "Reader's Digest," bringing articles of Catholic interest to light. He is the news guy, I am the history guy, the separation of powers is clear, and I am not trying to beat him at his own game! I did however run into some things that I wanted to comment on a bit and you all should read. Of course, to some, this collection of articles may seem very hodge-podge, but I am sure most readers know full well how this is all linked. One of the most important things you can do, as an American, as a Catholic, as either, or both, is know your history! Don't let secular progressive loons bully you into being ashamed of our heroes. The Crusaders put their lives on the line to defend the Christians in the Holy Land, the Minutemen put their lives on the line so their children would not have to submit to tyranny. If these men of times past could stand up to such formidble foes, what excuse do way have showing fear in the face of legions of aging hippies and their ilk? Toledo Blade Editorialist Wants Forcible Dis-Arming of America's Citizenry The disarmament process would begin after the initial three-month amnesty. Special squads of police would be formed and trained to carry out the work. Then, on a random basis to permit no advance warning, city blocks and stretches of suburban and rural areas would be cordoned off and searches carried out in every business, dwelling, and empty building. All firearms would be seized. The owners of weapons found in the searches would be prosecuted: $1,000 and one year in prison for each firearm. -Thanks for getting the word out on this Jay, maybe I ought to buy another World War II rifle one of these days. I seem to recall that even John Kerry had to brandish a gun in Ohio for a photo opp, I have a feeling the good folks there would not stand for this Stalanistic program which, thankfully, is just a crazy fiction at this point. Still, the fact that any American is even saying this must have the heroes of '76 spinning in their graves!Back to Backbone-History is fundamental This would be a good place to quote an important British writer, George Orwell, who wrote, “Who controls the past controls the future. Who controls the present controls the past.” Even in America, our children are often taught a watered down, inoffensive, and culturally sensitive version of events ranging from the Crusades to the battle at the Alamo. -Thank you Fred Thompson, yes that's rumored '08 candidate Fred Thompson. Now as I have stated before, my heart is with Brownback, as is my primary vote. However, Thompson is an acceptable alternative, and my second favorite man in the Republican field. Read this brief column by him, Fred gets it. He doesn't apologize for the Alamo or the Crusades, he is candid in a way McCain, Romney, and Rudy would never even care to be. Anyway, Thompson-Brownback ticket anybody? Maybe they can even snag Colbert as press secertary, and if they are real lucky, Jay Anderson for Attorney General?
***Ban on 'mom' and 'dad' considered – again California agenda would require K-12 'gay' indoctrination Cheerleading and sports teams would have to be gender-neutral. Prom kings and queens would be banned, or if featured, would have to be gender neutral so that the king could be female and the queen male. Gender-neutral bathrooms could be required for those confused about their gender identity. A male who believes he really is female would be allowed into the women's restroom, and a woman believing herself a male would be allowed into a men's room. Even scientific information, such has statistics showing AIDS rates in the homosexual community, could be banned. _ -Hey wait! I thought it was Galileo torturing Catholics and Scopes oppressing Protestants who were trying to suppress science, what gives? Anyway, this CA stuff all seems whacky, but, I am familiar with some universities having "HERstory" events since they apparently have no idea of the etymology of the word "History." Also, efforts to suppress the use of B.C. and A.D. in history texts are on the verge of success. This may be a surprise to you folks reading this, but unless colleges have a major common sense wake up call, you aren't going to see B.C. and A.D. anymore. I am one of the few history students who hasn't gone over to the "new" system, C.E. and B.C.E. (Common Era and Before Common Era.) Anyway, back to the topic at hand, I usually don't trust Governor Arnold to do the right thing, but in this case, I think he'll whip the veto pen out.
