    You are right, Cboldt, of course, about activist courts everywhere over-riding the voters’ wishes.

    I think Americans, silly us, thought that our constant denial of same sex marriage via the ballot box, meant something.

    So the SUPREME....just the name makes us bow in reverence t the mighty ones so much wiser than us....court says Ben can marry Brad so we shrug....hey, it’s love. We all need love, right?

    Soon we shall realize how we were overruled and hornswoggled by the elite who think they rule us.

    But I’m probably wrong.

    Speaking of the Pope....our new Associate Pastor DID NOT KNOW HIS NAME! He had to ask the Deacon if the Pope’s name is Francis.

    The Pope is not doing so well and not held in high regard by even Catholics.

    He needs to stick the religion and forget such as socialism and climate change, give me two breaks with that man.

    Father Swami....his name is Father Swami.

    AB your post is so spot on.

    I live in one of the largest homosexual enclaves on the East coast, called Rehoboth Beach. They are wealthy round these parts, and most are religious.

    But they are the exception. Homosexuals are not, as a rule, faithful to one person. Most of us know this but it is politically incorrect to say so.

    I think you’re right, AB, the country got caught blindsided by the same sex marriage thing and will regret it mightily in years to come. Cause in due course there will be multiple wives for the Muslims and Mormans (we have a right to LOVE multiple mates now, don’t we?).

    Not to mention the horrible impact this is goig to have on our social security/welfare system.

    Hey AB!....Just being here is enough AB....this is one of the few places where I can speak freely without her stalking me.

    Couple things.....first new associate pastor did mass today, oh my God, he is from India...handsome....and his name is Father SWAMI....I AM NOT MAKING THIS UP!

    In fact my seat mate says, once they announced his name....that he was from India. I whispered to her hat surely, surely they are jesting us with that name!

    But no, that is his name!

    Also....just two minutes ago daughter called me....she’s NOT supposed to in the name of the Father, the Son and the Holy Ghost....she says..”Mom, we can’t go on like this. Let me come see you. I won’t bring my phone (which she uses to video and audio record everyone WIHOUT THEM KNOWING IT!)....I will remove the papers for the PFA....please let me come over.”

    Dear Lord she wanted me out of her life for a full year....NO CONTACT! And let’s not forget her radio tirade which EVERYONE in Sussex county heard. She also called the Wilmington News Journal which I wisely refused to be interviewed for.

    She is coming over at 10:30 but I just don’t know and I don’t trust her.

    So if I don’t come back on....I’m probably in jail.

    Father Swami.....that’s his name and I could not understand a word of his homily.

    Once again the Sunday talk show thread up nice and early so I can sneak in a post before leaving for 8:30 am mass.

    Did I tell you we’re getting a new Pastor? Indeed Father Jim is leaving and , tween you and I, he’s not taking it very well. And you know our Assistant Pastor died,,,,,right during mass, recal? Well getting a new one of those too.

    Also two new Deacons and a new Director of Religious Ed.

    Tomorrow is welcoming mass for new Pastor, choir is singing, of course.

    Stopped doing all Blogging due to notoriety of daughter, who called up local radio station and told all of Sussex county that I killed my husband and was trying to kill both her and my granddaughter. And she got a restraining order against me, yes she did the most abused form of punishment....EVER.....

    But I shall start writing again tomorrow for many, many friends....who heard nutball Munchausen inflicted daughter on the air and knew right away she was nuts...THITY NINE MINUTES ON THE AIR TELLING THE WORLD I WAS A MURDERER.

    Discovery channel still investigating and Dr. Phil begging for th story.

    Okay....done for now....won’t mention again in the thread.

    Am still reeling from same-sex marriage thing. Shows today should be interesting.

    Thank you AB, as always, for doin this thread.

    Oh, and they’re coming to take my gun....did you know? Seems if you have PFA against you you must turn in your gun. I told magistrate day of hearing I would bring it straight to the police department, toot de sweet.

    Alas, I just can’t find it. They’re going to have to come get it from my cold dead hands.

    Karl Rove DID say that, but followed up with “And that’s not going to happen.”

    I thought he sounded awkward but to say Rove advocates repealing the second amendment it’s a bit of a stretch.

    Indeed Happy Father’s Day to Dads everywhere.

    Had an interesting compliment today, left me feeling a bit giddy though it’s mostly nothing.

    Was leaving church today and as I pushed my way through the crowd a lady walked up to me and said “I love when you go to communion and are singing. You sound so beautiful.”

    Now folks, I am a good choir singer and within a range of five notes I sound pretty good. But I am no soloist and never lead the singing, or cantor, as we call it.

    Also, my friend has been joining me for masses of late, she’s also in the choir, lives around the corner, stayed with me the entire day when my daughter got a protection from abuse against me, yes she did, someday I shall tell the story.

    SHE is a good singer, a soprano, sings at funerals, weddings, etc. She is also named Pat and looks just like me. I am not making this up.

    Anyway between the two of us we sing loud and pretty....she has the prettier voice but I dunno, I come right in with my alto/tenor/sometimes bass range and it sounds right nice.

    So to have someone so enamored of my singing (and note it was ME, NOT the other Pat, she complimented) was something new.

    No it’s not been a good week, I am suffering, lonely and isolated. I hide on my back deck because my daughter will have me arrested if I even look at her.

    My crime? Telling everyone that she has Munchaussen and fakes medical problems.

    It’s way more complicated but let me give you a tidbit....her husband, whom she TOO got a PFA on and had him arrested EIGHT now totally in love with my daughter’s sister....who is my stepdaughter.

    Heh.’s quite the story and don’t forget that I wrote the book! Everybody’s reading this book and it now sells for $26.95....for a PAPERBACK! Also the Discovery channel still working on and I’ve not yet talked to Dr. Phil but he’s very interested.

    I have been paying attention to the news, but of course.

    That horrible kid who shot those people, my heart sobs over that. Because out of all the evil mass shooters in the world, he is the only one who actually spent an hour sitting and socializing with those people he killed.

    That’s evil, people....either evil or he’s so drugged up he don’t know left from right, up from down.

    I think the world would be better off without him.

    Also, about my Pope....sheesh.....I think he should shut up about global warming. Now that I think about it, maybe he should shut up about everything.

    Well you make me smile AB. Indeed I do know Holly’s although I’d never suspect them as big crab cake purveyors.

    In fact I only live about 30 miles from Ocean City Merryland but Holly’s is up near the Chesapeake Bay Bridge, about a hundred miles westward.

    However, fate would have it that I will be driving up that way for this past weekend I learn my stepfather has died.

    Seems like everyone around me is dying anymore.

    Anyway I will check it out. Or know what else? A big batch of steaming hard crabs could be just the ticket.

    I desperately wanted some crab cakes; haven’t had any for a month of Sundays. Bearing in mind I am from Baltimore, once a mighty city, now one big ghetto, but still known for its crab cakes.

    So I got a coupon for a frozen box of the things and said a prayer that while they’d never be as good as the real thing, they might satisfy my crab cake needs.

    They were awful, tasted like fishy lump crab meat.

    What was I thinking?

    The dog thought they were ok.

    So this very white woman dyes and curls her hair to look somewhat nappy, spray tans her face, teaches all kinds of “Africana” studies for her alleged “expertise”, publicly declares she was abused by her parents and was raised in a teepee and those people teaching our children believed all this?

    Not to mention ole Bruce Jenner who is doing a bang-up job of promoting his reality show.

    And they ask just what is wrong with a white person feeling as if they’re black.

    I mean she cheated taxpayers via the absurd minority promotion program and this is okay?

    And Caitlyn Jenner, God bless, fathered six children but still insists he’s a woman.

    Morning AB, All.

    There’s so much more to the story and someday I shall write it.

    Before, thank you AB for doing this thread, dependable as always. If, for some reason, I do not participate, believe that I always read it and appreciate the comments of wise yon readers.

    So we are to turn Dr. Phil down, who has been calling.

    It is a special on the Discovery channel and it’s called, I am not making this up…”FAKING IT”!

    Indeed it is the story of my own daughter who has suffered from Munchausen syndrome for 23 years, horrifically, horribly, a life destroyed.

    I am devoted to getting her better, and I think she can. You “cure” a Munchausen person like you “cure” stalking…..YOU MAKE THEM STOP IT! My first job was to tell everyone about her fakery and I think I succeeded. She is NOT happy.

    Only in 23 years the medical people have kept indulging her….surely those people in Merryland’s infamous mental institution “Sheppard-Pratt Pool and Spa”, where she vacationed for almost a full year of her life if you add it up and did you know there is a limit on what Medicare will pay for private mental institution? Well my daughter knew it and she counted down the beloved days.

    I wrote a book about it….wrote it in 2001, published in 2005. Got lots of people now reading this book…….

    Heh. Now costs $26.95 for this book. It’s a great book. Daughter’s character is Sky and I fulfilled my lifetime of frustration by documenting an adolescence filled with medical fakery.

    I stumbled upon the Discovery people while doing research on Munchausen’s. Man they are all calling me.

    There’s so much more to this story, including her calling up the local radio station and telling all of Sussex county that I killed my husband and am currently poisoning her and my granddaughter.

    Got the Wilmington Journal calling me, local Bloggers mocking me. I’ve stopped writing and am in hiding. This is one of the few places on the Internet where I can talk freely although she is stalking me.

    Indeed the Discovery people been talking to me, also daughter’s estranged husband, her sister (daughter has half-sister that estranged husband is currently dating, just to add to the amazing story that I could not make up and I write fiction.)

    They are reading my book and I am told to not speak to Dr. Phil. Dr. Phil has been calling cause….well it’s a great story although I sure wish it wasn’t happening to me.

    They are planning a filmed intervention of daughter cause SHE HAS TO STOP, SHE HAS TO STOP, SHE HAS TO STOP. She is destroying my granddaughter and a nasty custody fight will guarantee that they will take her child away. She is currently under active watching by the Delaware Child Protection service cause….have you ever heard of Munchausen by proxy? Look it up. They’ve been monitoring granddaughter for a year and will not drop it. I am the one that turned her in because I will be damned if granddaughter should have to grown up with daughter’s constant suicide threats. 83 suicide threats folks, how many do we get? I got them all documented and yet daughter is still alive!

    Anyway, give you some quotes from the book maybe later. I am watching the Sunday talk shows and am getting involved in knee deep political stuff locally. Seems my notoriety has gotten a lot of attention and will soon be writing some more books.

    Although I am in hiding and if anyone ever asks tell them you don’t know me.

    Will also let you know when the Discovery show is on…..daughter has got to agree to it and she won’t even yet agree she has a sympathy/attention addiction that will kill her and destroy her daughter.

    MorningAB, All....

    I don’t know when, might take a couple of weeks, but last week something horrible, horrible happened to me. But I’m okay.....someday I will tell. Hint, it involves my daughter, her love of doctors and hospitals, a local radio station that she called up and told all of Sussex county that I killed my husband and was trying to poison her and my daughter.

    I am a minor celebrity of sorts so the radio stations grabbed the story and it gets worse, way worse.

    I am very, very afraid of her. If anything ever happens to me do not let her get away with it.

    News Journal up in Wilmington calling me....I am not giving interviews....I can tell my own story, thank you.

    A story that all of Delaware now shares. I can’t tell you how embarrassed I am. As for this thread so far I don’t think she knows of it but if anybody strange should show up be cautious, as will I.

    Thank you AB for doing this thread, saw Carly Fiorini on Fox News Sunday....I like her.

    Below my Beau Biden story.

    So I got to tell my Beau Biden story. You Delaware people will like this. It was 2005, I’d been living here in Delaware for almost 2 years at the time. Matt Opaliski and I (Hi Matt....I miss you) were assigned the GOP booth at the Delaware state fair. As we sat at the GOP table, the Democrat table was directly across from us.

    So Beau Biden comes waltzing up to the Democrat booth at the Del. state fair and Matt nudges me and whispers in my ear that this was Beau Biden, Joe Biden’s son and then Delaware state’s Attorney General.

    Later I chance to go outside....for a smoke. There was Beau Biden, also smoking. He joined me, as smokers do in their banishment, and we talked and laughed. He told me funny stories about his father.

    No I did not have a recorder, got no pics. Honestly I was new to this world of politics here in Delaware and was flattered that this very important political figure was laughing and talking to me, telling me anecdotes about his Dad that the press would never hear.

    So young.....from brain cancer. Beau....may you rest in peace.

    Also, responding here to my own post about Huckabee....and since I mentioned it was just this past week that Huckabee put out a defense of Josh Duggar.

    Now Huckabee is representative of the evangelical base of the Republican party and the Duggars are perceived as Evangelical..... seems so crass and political. Though Josh Duggar, well the story is not quite out on him yet. Wiser mouths would have remained shut.

    Why was a police report filed? I mean, my brother sneaks into my house in stealth of night and molests my young self. My parents find out, I pray and am punished. Would my parents file a police report?

    How did the police report come into the picture? And if you want my opinion though nobody asked for it I think a teacher or guidance counselor reported it.

    There’s more to this story and not much in Mike Huckabee, although he seems likeable.

    Am watching the Hillary email....heh. about the Duggar boy? I am not trying to start a war but the kid molested five of his sisters as they slept. A police report got filed but unclear why.

    Whatever the case the argument that this is not fair, that Josh Duggar has been punished and repented, did not repeat...TRUE.

    But to have a show like the doesn’t play well in Peoria is what I’m saying here.

    Anyway I’ll be around until church time then I shall be back.

    what makes Fiorina a good candidate for the second spot?

    I will give you the answer. First this HP thing means nothing to but a few voters. Nobody's going to care much about her allegedly running HP into the ground. She worked there five years for goodness sake. Most jobs last around that long so it's not like she killed the company within a year. AND...HP is still very much around so....I don't think it's going to matter all that much.

    Beyond ask what makes her a good candidate for the second spot......SHE'S A WOMAN!

    Because if the Republicans have not learned a thing they should know to get some sort of decent representative of a so-called "minority" out there representing the Republican party. Cause few people don't like Obama because of his race, come on. And plenty of Republicans will vote for Ben Carson.

    Firorini is way above Hillary and so far she seems to be the only female out there seeking the job. She talks a good game and what else do we have to judge these people by but their verbiage.

    On talent and experience alone, the VP slot maybe belongs to a Huckabee....or a Santorum. But Fiorina, she's a female. Bout time the Republicans get some females out there else the world will think Hillary is some sort of typical American female.

    I’m with you.

    Get a woman in there and Fiorina seems tobe doing a great job.

    Cruz at the top, of course.

    Now am watching Meet the Press thing on mothers....go on with your bad self....mothers need to work, paid maternity leave.

    And who died and made Maria Shriver some sort of Mother of the Year?

    You’re right Bray.

    Dear Lord you’d think that Brady committed murder.

    It’s such a nothing-burger of a story....I got to wonder why this administration, or its representatives, wants to destroy the game of football.

    Speaking of Pam Geller...I’ve been listening to her responses to all that’s been thrown at her by various political pundits.

    She’s always got the right answer.

    Because, come on....two guys were going to break in there and shoot up the place. No American thinks this is okay and the media looks lame attacking the victim, as it were.

    Sure she was baiting the nut jobs. BUT THEY TOOK THE BAIT DIDN’T THEY?

    You can believe that most Americans are not condemning Geller for the Islamic thugs....sheesh.

    Morning AB, All,

    As always thank you AB for doing this thread and the folks ain’t showin’ up, give them hell Harry!

    Had to sing this morning and choir guy wanted me to stay after mass and sing some more for the May Day Mary Processional, something about he couldn’t get a keyboard outside.

    Don’t ask me.

    I scurried off because I left my dogs out in the back yard and as I always do until I get comfortable with them, I worried whether they got out or not.

    Last week both of daughter’s dogs got out...TWICE! Once they were found up on the big highway! Had to keep them inside, only outside if one of them go with dogs. Yesterday she went out and bought a bale of chicken wire, some fence posts and I dunno.....she said she fixed it. Girl can be amazing when she puts her mind to it but the doctors and hospitals beckon .

    Anyway, I worked for five years right across from the Mondawmin Mall...Baltimore....once upon a time I loved Baltimore. I was like that old Mary Tyler Moore show, throwing my beret in the air at the Inner Harbor....loving that town, born and raised in that town.

    I can’t believe they even broke into my beloved Lexington Market.....

    Of course it’s the result of Democratic governance.

    Anyway....I’m watchin the DVR s now....will check in all dy.

    Good morning AB, All....

    I did not forget a single one of you. Went to church, was supposed to sing but choir director emails....Father Jim will not let him back until he gets doctor’s slip and he can’t get doctor’s slip untl Monday.

    Don’t ask me what that’s all about. But I had to go to church and did I tell y’all I am getting confirmed on May 24th by the Bishop of the Wilmington Diocese. Thank God I am not getting confirmed in Wilmington though it was there at first.

    Was arranging to carry gun and go in a armored tank.

    Thank you AB for doing this thread.

    I am watching the Sunday shows on DVR and so far they seem to be going easy on Hillary.

    So I’m sitting here kind of mellow and thought I’d share my thoughts on the current crop of presidential/vice-presidential nominees now all coming forward.

    I include this “vice-presidential” thing because do not be fooled, they are auditioning for this part, especially one who would be perfect for the job, more on this later.

    Okay, the Republican possible/probable contenders. NJ’s Christy, Rubio, Cruz, Jeb Bush, Carly Fiorino, John Kasich (who threw in his bid this very Sunday morning), Lindsay Graham, Walker, Mike Huckabee, Donald Trump..

    Ted Cruz is going to get the nomination, I predict. Bearing in mind I’m right on predictions about as often as Dick Morris.

    I think Carly Fiorino would be a perfect VP choice for any of the guys currently trying to get the nod. I really do.

    I know she’s from California, suspect that right there. But she’s bright, speaks well, could be a nod to the nutty GOPe. Meanwhile Carly’s got visions of a presidency in her mind and it’s time, like it of not, for a woman to be president. And it ain’t gonna be Hillary, give me a break.

    I like Rubio though he shot himself in the foot with his immigration stance. There’s way more to our immigration issues out here in la-la land than the GOP Blue Blood elite want to try to understand. If he somehow could recover from that gaffe I rather like Rubio.

    I mentally have Walker in a tie with Rubio but I dunno, Walker has immigration mumble-mumbles in his past. I’m sticking with a tie between those two in terms of odds.

    Donald Trump is a publicity hound, don’t tell me not. John Kasich is seeking a quick and slick VP nomination. Mike Huckabee, hey I really believe this guy got fired from Fox due to his Saturday show not doing too well. To save face they allowed him to say he’s running for President and he HAD to quit the Fox gig.

    Christy of NJ could slip into (well he’d need a little grease) a VP slot....I bet Christy imagines himself as a Dick Cheney sort, the scary behind the smile.

    I’m saying Lindsay Graham is looking for a VP slot or maybe a gig on Fox news.

    As for Jeb Bush.....he’s formidable, I’ve no doubt. He’s got the bucks. If he could somehow get a VP that helped calm the base....well even with that I don’t think he’d make it. But I dunno...a Jeb Bush/Ted Cruz ticket? It’s a stretch but only something like that would have me voting for Jeb Bush.

    That’s my take on the Republicans.

    Want to me to do the Democrats?

    I find it extremely interesting that Chris Wallace even brought up the issue of Graham’s marital status....especially at this time when he’s announcing plans to run for president.

    An the way he broached the subject I thought interesting....under the guise of perhaps raising his little sister prevented him from marrying though I don’t for a minute think anyone would buy that at a reason for not marrying.

    Graham’s what? Close to age 50 I’d think. If you ain’t married by this age it isn’t because you’re still raising your little sister.

    I argue the issue was brought up for a reasons because....come on....WHERE ARE THE FEMALES IN HIS LIFE?

    How much you wanna bet Lindsay runs on the Jeb Bush ticket?

    Lindsay Graham tells interesting story this morning on Fox News Sunday, something I didn’t know.

    First of all, of note, Wallace asks Graham , kin of, sort of, why he isn’t married. Interesting. Honestly I didn’t know Lindsay Graham isn’t married but surely, good looking guy, politico of some reknown.....why ISN’T he married?

    Then Wallace tells Graham’s childhood story of parents dying and how he-Graham, raised his younger sister.

    If you ask me sad childhoods are all the rage. Rubio’s got Cuban parents and a Dad who almost deserted them. Ted Cruz too has some kind of sad story....wait, it was HIS father who almost deserted them.

    Hillary was named after the mountain climber by her lying mother and Jeb Bush is weary of competing with family.

    So boo hoo.

    And really, why isn’t Lindsay Graham married? Does he have a girlfriend?

    enquiring minds want to know.
