    So i listened again to Chaffetz and he didn’t use the word...moderate... but he said he would “bridge the gap” between the centrists and the far right. Yes he said FAR RIGHT.

    That’s the problem, their definition of Far Right...i think it’s just an average Joe.

    Thank you very much Chiller.

    This is the problem with those GOPe types....EVERYTHING is political. They get elected, they get to enjoy the spotlight....and such as morals, goals and good actions become foreign to them.

    It couldn’t be, after all, that Gowdy and the Benghazi committee truly believe that a Sec of State left Americans behind to die, while covering it with a big lie.

    The ONLY reason any congress critter would embark upon such a query for the truth would be to a political end, so think the GOPe. Thus Gowdy et al were looking to bring down Hillary’s ratings and they did.

    Thus thinks Kevin McCarthy and they call it a Freudian slip. Tells me all I need to know about this guy.

    Morning Cousin Mike! Always glad to see your familial face. ;)

    I think you’re right about this bizarre “keeping his name out of the news”. Cause it seems, more and more, that there’s a pattern with these nutjobs....usually youngish male-18-30, usually doesn’t do well with females, got a lot of time on their I said. Young men got a lot of testosterone running through them, add some cockamamie organization seeking just EXACTLY these types of men....such as ISIS...”Black Lives Matter”.....Muslims.

    Nothing burgers looking for more nothing burgers, add some testosterone, some anger at all the rejection....well they’re not dumb.

    They know how to operate a computer, they know how to buy many as they want....they scout out a place to shoot up....usually gun free zones. No matter all the publicity, these nutjobs are relatively rare. Just a guess, but if 20 million young men in America fit the profile of between’s really only a few, a tiny few, who go out and shoot up people.

    And there would be fewer if they’d stop encouraging them with this ridiculous Black Lives Matter which everybody is on to, and ISIS....people actively recruiting these types, often with the help of our own President.

    I mean I’m just a lowly payroll clerk/humble Blogger, and I can see a pattern.

    Morning AB, All….

    Been not such a good week here in the swamps. But not so bad either. Maybe more later, I gotta feel the vibe to talk about it. What one you want to hear about? My priest coming to my house to watch the debates and now the pastoral council wants to control pastoral visits to parishioner homes? Or about the guy behind me suing me for land he says is his though I got a legal survey says it’s mine? Or my attendance at a workshop for relatives of mentally ill patients which is nice and in prep for my book which, of course, I am going to write? Right by the damn ocean this workshop is….which is cool but odd as all get out.

    But, alas, I am mostly healthy, I love my dogs, my property remains in pretty good shape after the attack by noreasters and hurricanes. I’ve got a bevy of really good friends who have been my support , my faith and soon my granddaughter will be back in my life. My daughter, as I’ve come to accept, is lost to me forever. It hurts like a bitch but I will only heal when I accept that.

    I still am a political and news junkee, not necessarily a big point of pride of mine but it keeps me occupied.

    As always, thank you AB for doing this thread so dependably, and thanks to yon commenters who keep my head busy.

    I am very curious about the shooter recently, how come so little is known about him? And President Obama needs to shut up with his obsession about getting our guns or someone might shoot him!

    Also curious about this Pope thing and that visit to see Kim Davis.

    What a joke that Vatican is. They say one thing one day and another the next. Father Flowers, a self-proclaimed expert on the Vatican, tells me that the Holy See is riddled with differences in idealogy, almost 50-50, much like America I suppose.

    Anyway, reporting in and ready to watch the Sunday talk shows with y’all.

    On Fox and Friends they said they would not mention his name so as to NOT give him desired notoriety.

    Which surprises me all to hell because....well that just makes no sense.

    I’m going to be honest yon ladies and gems participating in this thread.

    I’m so confused about that Mideast situation my head reels as I try to get a grasp. And I am both a news and political junkee, not that I’m especially proud of this.

    So American went to war with Saddam on the guise of weapons of mass destruction but it was mostly cause they want to get rid of the guy. The Iraqis hang Saddam, that the Democrats most adored, and Obama took over and pulled out the remaining US soldiers.

    Meanwhile Optometrist Assad is all over the place, but mostly doing the bidding of whatever powerful country hangs around and gives him money while he gasses his citizens who have a problem with that.

    Meanwhile meanwhile.....Putin, a man’s man but evil, plots to take over the world once again with his own self being a benign but firm dictator, decides that Syria would be a great place to get in a Russian footprint for the Soviet Union Part II.

    Meanwhile once more, President Obama threatens Optometrist Assad with fire, brimstone and the horrors of hell should he gas the Syrians but Assad does it anyway. Obama does nothing.

    So Putin, filled with testosterone and dreams of glory, is going in and getting rid of those thugs called ISis, thieves, rapists and robbers rounded up on the Internet and no match for any country with just teeny tiny Obama.


    So do I have it right so far? Cause I got more.

    Frankly I laffed all week at the comments of, er....the Protestants among us. Some called him the “Puke”, many complained that he did not mention Jesus in his address to congress, scores complained that this Pope does not speak for them.

    But I didn’t get offended because hey, I am Catholic too and I he weren’t the head of my church I’d be complaining just as much.

    It’s been a hell of a week for the pope an my wish is that this oountry is well-stocked with low-information voters. I’m hoping they watched all the pageantry, the kissing of the babies, and the Pope....who really did work hard this week, whose picture should be under the word “POPE”, who loves all the poor, the women, the immigrants, the Syrians, and the Communists.

    Two people he cited as exempliary Catholics: Dorothy Day wrote:

    In the Catholic Worker in May 1951, Day wrote that Marx, Lenin, and Mao Tse-Tung “were animated by the love of brother and this we must believe though their ends meant the seizure of power, and the building of mighty armies, the compulsion of concentration camps, the forced labor and torture and killing of tens of thousands, even millions.”

    And Thomas Merton, another pretty much nothing burger who wrote a bunch of Communist crap.

    Like I say, the pope needs to SHUT UP AND SAY MASS.

    Morning AB, All,

    Am singing at 10 am mass but will return with commentary, snark and yuks.

    Busy, busy week, this week passed. First there’s the Pope….and to begin, I have one thing to say to him…..SHUT UP AND SAY MASS!

    Okay, whew, got that off my chest.

    Second there’s the resignation of Speaker Boehner, hope he does not cry on his way out.

    Now as to the Pope, obviously I have mixed emotions all over the place. I am a Catholic and there is, inevitably, the pride at seeing the titular head of my church so much a part of the American news scene during his visit. Yes it was a slow news week and CNN, Fox, et al, were in a frenzy to obtain coverage. But you don’t see Baptist ministers….Lutheran, even the liberals’ Episcopalian types, getting all this attention.

    I’m jus’ sayin’.

    But the man talked about immigrants, global warming, women and dear Lord, in the Name of the Father, the Son and the Holy Ghost, THE POOR! Can’t have too many poor, gotta love the poor, go find me some poor and let’s love them up.

    Here’s my theory…..the left has made being black such an attention getter that you got white people pretending to be black that they too may lead protests and gain recognition a la Martin Luther King.

    Well now we’ll have people pretending to be poor that the Pope may love and bless them as well.

    I should think being poor should be easier then pretending to be black if now born that way. Although somebody should tell the Pope that the “poor” in America almost always have TV’s, Internet, a car, a nice place to live, food stamps, free medical care…..heh….hey Pope Francis….here’s another tidbit, don’t tell anybody I said it:

    Most of these “poor” people choose this lifestyle and it ain’t half bad for not having to work or anything. That’s adults and only American adults of which I speak. I suppose in your native Argentina the poor are worse off, not that people living in Argentina don’t have choices either.

    Anyway, thank you AB, as always, for doing this thread. And thank you yon commenters, your input helps set my head straight.

    Just so you know Mr. Fox....quietly, but not without some publicity, there is a group forming in the Vatican that is prepared to shut the Pope up.

    Or censor the guy.

    I got all kinds of inside info on the Catholic church and it’s kind of cool.

    This trip to America is the conduit.

    Either he does it right or somehow, some way, he is going to be stopped. It’s so bad even our priests make jokes during their homilies.

    Today, Father Jones (NOT Father Tom, but Father Jones, our associate Pastor who is from India. His first name is Jones? His Indian parents had a baby boy and decided to give him a very American name.....JONES!) gave a smirk to the effect of “We never do know what the Pope’s going t say, do we?” at which point the congregation looked at each other and silently mouthed “amen”.

    Point is....this Pope is not going to go on unchecked like he is.

    I am very worried about his visit this week but yeah, a little excited. First I am a news junkee. Second I am a political junkee. Third I am a Catholic. And finally I think the side shows will be fascinating. Already Obama’s got a bunch of nut job Catholics coming to the White House, lesbian nuns or some such.

    But I am going on here....sorry.

    Somebody’s going to have to rein this Pope in and trust me, people are paying attention.

    Next week y’all come back to this thread cause it will be Pope, all of the time.

    Well NF....and my cousin Mike....Kabar....

    .....about Carly. For now, call me a silly woman, but her rant about those precious aborted babies, with their legs still writhing.....that’s my calling card.

    Fiorina was sincere in her little outburst, I could feel it.

    Sure she’s from California and that makes her liberal a little I guess.

    Not to worry.....she can be changed and molded to meet our narrative.

    Cause if she somehow makes it to any elected slot (personally I’m in favor of the VP slot for her) it will be because of the Tea Party base and she’ll know it.

    Besides, Republicans could use a woman on the ticket and while there are plenty others who would be a better choice, at least as I see it, she’s the only one out there.

    Whatever the case, Fiorina’s not likely to go far so no sense in too much argumenting about the case.

    Did you see that alleged alarm clock that Mohammid kid made? There’s our president apologizing for those silly teachers who didn’t think a clock should wires and timers, resemble a bomb quite so much.

    I think Obama is a Muslim, I think he is on their side, I think he is doing his part to create a pool for the Jihadists to recruit from in the form of angry blacks. I think he is allowing Syrians to come in that they may form an army INTERNALLY within the US, with the cops tied up by fear of political correctness....lots of Syrians coming to Baltimore, did you hear?

    Indeed next week is Pope week. As a certified news Junkee, not to mention a Catholic.....I am excited.

    But not necessarily in a good way. For this Pope worries the hell out of me. Father Tom says he is very naïve, a fellow born in Argentina, a country with nothing much in common with most of the world except maybe Russia.

    This morning Fox’s Father Jonathan Morris-think that’s his name-was saying how the Pope is from a country with crony capitalism and when he speaks of capitalism he speaks not of the business world we in America know.

    I asked the only priest nearest me-though I’d love to ask Father John-did anybody see this guy without a shirt last week? Saved a guy’s life attacked by two pit bulls, Fox got some of it on tape, especially that part with Father Jonathan with no shirt. He shouldn’t be a damn priest, he should join the Chippendale dancers....I’m just Father Tom says the church kind of owes South America what with all the Catholics there and never having ha a Pope.

    Sheesh....politics is everywhere.

    Also I am very concerned about the safety of the Pope. First, the Pope is a bit naïve and he might go wandering into the crowds when he shouldn’t. Cause if I’m a Jihadist man, blowing up the Pope, his entourage, and many American civilians would maybe get me over a hundred virgins in heaven.

    Father Tom came to the Sussex county GOP this past Monday. He wore a Tshirt with a bunch of nuns on it. At the bottom it said “Wait till these guys see the virgins awaiting them.”

    I could have slapped him.....but it got a lot of laughs.

    Anyway....just got a bad feeling about this Pope visit.

    I would like, of course, to be wrong. Father Tom says he gives the Pope’s visit a 50/50 chance of avoiding some kind of violence....

    Maybe it’s a Catholic thing.....

    I gave Carly Fiorina the prize for her sincere outburst over those tiny babies so brutally murdered and cut apart by Planned Parenthood.

    I gave Ted Cruz second place, mostly because I like him.

    Father Tom is going with a Rubio/Fiorina ticket and does not like Donald Trump.

    Well, since we got to the second’s the rest of my 9-11 story and the attack of the ponytailed man and his pit bull wife.

    So first, a little background about the couple involved in this recent contretemps at my church where the nasty lady almost assaulted me during our celebration of our new flag pole on our church campus. In fact, right after I got done taking that Diane Feiinstein picture is when the woman assaulted me. Diane Feinistein couldn’t believe her eyes and ears but she’s a complete witness.

    HE is a member of our church finance council and last week I told the story of our church organ on this thread dated last Sunday. His name is Joe Blow and up until this Friday I always considered him a friend. Now he was NOT for purchasing that church organ but I add this tidbit because I think my friend Joe Blow was mad at me for that little fiscal victory but come on folks, our damn organ was broke, we have the money, and most important, Father Tom wanted the organ. If Father Tom was not in favor of purchasing that organ, all of my cuteness and coyness would not have meant a thing. Nonetheless I am somehow viewed as the victor of obtaining our new over a 100K organ, a perspective I rather like what with all the hugs, loves and thanks you. I’ll not lie to you, I got an ego.

    It is not the purpose of the Finance council to tell the pastor how to spend money but more to add an approval stamp and/or disapproval. I have been on the Finance council for ten years now folks and know my way around, go to hell.

    Now I’m not saying that my wrongly perceived Finance council victory made Joe Blow mad but let me tell you how I have to fight this guy’s roaming hands at every Sussex GOP meeting (yeah, he’s on the Sussex GOP AND is a member of my church) and struggle to get away from his monopolizing me from speaking to anyone else before the meeting’s start. For a smile, know that he is a very handsome man, sporting a gray ponytail, and wears pink pants.

    Well I just don’t know but he does like the ladies, yes he does.


    So Joe Blow’s wife, Jane Blow, is known far and wide as the nastiest woman on the planet. Thus there’s Joe, the handsome elder lover boy, and Jane, his pit bull wife sent to drive off the infidels. Yes I knew about Jane Blow but her little stunt this past Friday was not amusing.

    I am standing, with Diane Feinstein, around our new flag pole as Father Tom sang the star spangled banner (Father Tom is a wonderful singer, did I tell you?) and Jane Blow, along with the pony-tailed, pink-pants-wearing husband, Joe Blow, walk over to me. Jane gets right up in my face, I’m telling you folks I watched her approaching me and was smiling at first, but as she got closer and closer and closer, well I was scared for my life almost.

    “I want you to know that I did not appreciate you getting on the radio yesterday and calling MY priest a “Tea Party” priest.”

    Now about that radio show. Yes Sussex county has two local talk radio stations, TWO of them cause one was not enough, and they are very important to the daily stuff of Sussex county life. My own representative, name is Steve Smyk and he is also a member of my church, St. Jude the Apostle, comes on one of these talk shows every Wednesday and just to show you my relationship with Steve….well hey, he’s a friend and recently asked me if he was overdoing it with the weekly talk show. I assured him it was fine and what with this new Father Tom at our church and all I phoned up the station, hoping that I could make Steve look good….or at least have someone calling him. Or something.

    “I want to speak to my Representative Steve Smyk,” I said, on the air. Steve laughed, all this is on the air folks, and asked me what I wanted. I did not give my name but most people know who I am, what with my daughter and her famous radio rant….but that was the other radio station, who I am not speaking to ever again. I asked Steve if he knew about our new Pastor , Father Tom, who is known as “The Tea Party” priest. Steve laughed and told me that he was at a constituent meeting and it was mentioned. I laughed and told him that he had to start coming to mass, if he can find a parking spot. Steve said he heard that the church was getting packed because of the new Pastor.

    All this was on the air, with the show’s host very quiet and letting us talk. I then speculated, as it was a political talk show after all, as to who in the local GOP might run for Governor. I mentioned one lady I liked, Rep of another district. Then I asked Steve why doesn’t he run for Governor. Still we are on the air.

    “Aw, Pat,” he said, heh and recall that I did not mention my name, “I’ll tell you what, I will run for Governor if you are my campaign manager.”


    Just a nice exchange, not at all offensive and I do really like Steve although we’ve had our differences….once I had him put on a “Wall of Shame” that another Blogger maintained. He voted for some stupid gun control thing that made me mad and do not forget I am a famous Blogger, read by three, maybe four people, every day.

    So Jane Blow, speaking for herself and Joe Blow, the gray-haired ponytailed guy with the red pants with roaming hands (I mean does that woman have any idea what a lover boy she’s married to?)….man, she did not like me calling HER priest a Tea Party Priest.

    Is this against some kind of law or something? Couldn’t she too have called in and railed against that appellation? Did she ever hear of this thing called freedom of speech?

    Well I think these two are a pair of nut jobs, never leading anything, just raising hell all over the place and I must suppose I am now on their shit list.

    Oh, I did get a chance to relate this exchange to Father Tom at the Parish Life center reception, where he sat at my table by the way. So he knows he’s called the “Tea Party” priest and he chuckled. He’s not terribly familiar with the Blow couple as he is a new Pastor but hey, I will fill him in.

    In due course.

    I’m glad you bought that up Bray.

    Yes Biden lost his son but it’s NOT why he won’t run for President. Biden will not get the nod because the man is an awful candidate.

    That son story holding him back, it’s all nonsense. Biden would LOVE to run for President and what scenario is more likely?...that the loss of Beau Biden spurs the VP forward to fulfill his son’s last wish, or that his loss is too heavy and will prevent him from running with the verve he needs?

    Y’all know ole Joe would be out there feeling everybody up and making stupid gaffes from here to eternity if he had even a shot. The loss of his son is not holding him back.

    The loss of the big money people is holding him back.

    And while Joe might beat out the beaten Hillary for the Democratic nod, seriously....this man could NEVER win the presidency up against, say, a Ben Carson, a Ted Cruz....and Donald Trump would have a holiday.

    And AB....interesting discussion....

    ....even if they do intimidate our police forces into submission and hesitancy do not the around 2% of the black people wanting a race war (making me agree with Sal that not ALL, not even close to all, black Americans want this)....really think they will beat us Tea Party types?

    I mean we all got guns for God’s sake.

    And nobody’s going to sit still and allow themselves to be murdered except for liberals and they will be killed off first.

    We get it out here in la-la land, where we carry this country on our backs.

    Support for Trump (like mine) would move to Cruz if The Donald won't stay on the issues and keeps running his mouth to his detriment.

    Try as I might, I can't quite wrap my head around Trump's recent "attacks", a it were, re Carly Fiorina.

    Cause he did say..."Look at that face...."....I don't care what he says later about he "meant" her "persona".

    First, so okay once upon a time I was a stupid woman's libber and while I am older and wiser, I still have remnants. I kind of think mocking a woman' looks like that to be not good form.

    Further, I happen to think Carly is a rather attractive woman....she might not be a beauty queen but her face will NOT stop a clock nor a voter from voting for her, what the hell is TheDonald talking about?

    I know Fiorina made disparaging remarks about Trump but would he have warned us that no one will vote for say, JEb Bush, if they look at his face?

    Anyway, if I'm making any sense, I'm a little concerned about Trump's runaway really CAN go overboard.

    I'm agreeing with you is what I'm saying here.

    Okay, I hope this works. Did not want to put her pic up direct cause it's kind of big.

    But it SHOULD on the link to meet....



    Also, folks at church think she and I look alike. She does look exactly like my mother but don't tell her I said that.

    from Delaware no less.

    OMG and Britt Hume launches into a diatribe about how the Republicans shouldn’t shut down the gubmint, how such actions always end up bad.

    Come on guys....if Mitch McConnell would allow the viewing of those horrible videos of Planned Parenthood, give that awful story some traction...THEY COULD WIN THIS THING.

    Father Tom told me three people walked out of his mass when he included details of the PP debacle in his homily.

    Well I was thinking, and HE said out loud, who the hell needs parishioners like this that don’t think dissecting unborn children worth efforts to stop?

    Father Tom....I’m telling the Pope on him.

    Speaking of the pope....I got issues on his little abortion rant...maybe later.

    Okay, watching Fox News Sunday, and am I to understand that John Kasich is now up high in the polls?

    Kasich waffles about the Iran treaty and does NOT want to shut down the gubmint...”Gotta be careful shutting down the gubmint”....Man if they handles their public relations right shutting down the gubmint isn’t the horror the GOP thinks it is. They scared that the media might talk bad about them.

    Cruz is drafting off of Trump for now.

    Yes he is. And I don't think it's a bad strategy at all.

    He lets Trump do all the snark and he keeps mum about Trump. I have a bit of a small hope, but still thinking about it, of a Cruz/Trump ticket.

    But still not sure.

    We'll see how they do at the debates.

    Which I will be viewing with Father Tom at my house, did I tell you?

    Yep IP...I really think Cruz is running a good campaign. With his low profile he still has us out here in la-la land.

    Father Tom likes Ted Cruz, by the way, and he also really likes Ben Carson.

    Will let you all know next week’s thread how the debate went, wish me luck because I am very, very nervous.

    I don’t know Gritty.

    Yesterday choir sang at the 4:30 mass. Father Tom was not doing the mass but nonetheless the parking lot was packed. There is just no way our church, though it’s quite big....can handle these crowds forever.

    So as I am coming into church the organist....not the normal guy, our Choir director....but the substitute....what has been begging me to ask Father Tom to my house....I don’t know why but she knows him from another she calls me over to the piano....we are using a piano cause our organ is broke....and she tells me Father Tom told her about our debate “date” this coming Wednesday night....and how he thought he (Father Tom) and me (Pat Fish) are going to get along just great.

    Yeah, the whole church knows about this and my mother-in-law, to whom I recount the stories of Father Tom....tells me to be careful....reminding me he IS a priest.

    Well HE’s the one going telling everybody how much he likes me and let’s not forget how he challenged me to invite him to my house for dinner when we will discuss the front of everybody on the Finance council.

    Which I did invite him to my house for the debates though I am scared out of my mind.

    All ready there’s discussion of maybe renting a venue to have Father Tom speak because like I say, our church is big but it IS a church. And yes I did mention this little tidbit to Father Tom.....(I have his private cell phone...go to hell...) and hey, he’s human....he’s flattered all to hell how happily MOST of the congregation has received him.

    I’m not sure how I fit into all of this of course but hey, I will follow the lead of my Lord and Savior if He has a plan for me.

    Most of the Sussex GOP already knows Father Tom as he attended three Delaware Republican conventions. And he knows Chistine O’Donnell....more on this later.

    Because people want to hear the truth and people recognize the truth. Father Tom’s homily on the deceit of Islam was one such truth. Imagine if every preacher, from their church bully pulpit, taught about the falsehood of Islam.

    To be fair Father Tom spoke of his Muslim friend who faithfully lay down their prayer rugs six times a day and he thinks their prayer is as sincere of any Christian.

    I’ll end with a Father Tom joke cause he has a great sense of humor, insert wink here....

    Seems a guy enters heaven and is surprised that it is filled with various buildings housing St. Peter takes the new arrival to a tour.

    “Over there is the Baptist building,” St. Peter said, pointing to a building filled with dancing people. “Seems they couldn’t dance on earth so they dance around the clock up here.”

    They pass another building with smoke floating around it like clouds. “That’s the Methodist building. They couldn’t smoke on earth so they do it here, with no fear of lung cancer,” St. Peter explained.

    Then they passed another building that was all quiet and solemn. The new arrival raised his eyebrows as in a physical question mark.

    St. Peter smiled. “That’s the Catholic building. Be very quiet,” St. Peter instructed, holding finger to shushed lips.

    “They think they’re the only ones up here.”

    I notice that Ted Cruz is very noticeably quiet although you recall he did get involved with that Kentucky woman and the same-sex marriage contretemps.

    I think that once Cruz begins his campaign....I mean begins it seriously....he is going to soar.

    Even with his low-profile Cruz garners attention.

    I do believe he is going to be our nominee.
