    Something to think about.................

    Charity Hospital run by the Sisters of Charity in New Orleans , along with the Upjohn company developed the plasma system in the 1930’s that saved so many lives in WW-II , Korea , and Vietnam and in the Middle East now.

    During the Civil War most of the nurses were nuns.

    Don’t give up. I am not a Catholic, but a dear friend sent me this.


    When the Catholic Church was founded, there were no Hospitals. Today, one out of five people in this Country, receive their Medical care at a Catholic hospital.

    When the Catholic Church was founded, there were no schools. Today, the Catholic Church teaches 3 million students a day, in its more than 250 Catholic Colleges and Universities, in its more than 1200 Catholic High Schools and its more than 5000 Catholic grade schools.

    Every day, the Catholic Church feeds, clothes, shelters and educates more people than any other organization in the World.

    The new Obama Health Mandate could end all this and the tax payers would have to make up the loss.

    Also, all Catholic adoption services will come to an end; a human disaster.

    There are more than 77 million Catholics in this Country. It takes an estimated 50 million Catholic votes to elect a President.

    I am Asking all of you to go to the polls in 2016 and be united in replacing all Senators and Reps with someone who will respect the Catholic Church, all Christians, and all Religions (with perhaps the exception of Islam).

    Mr. President, you said, “The USA is not a Christian Nation”. You are wrong - We are a Christian Nation founded on Judeo-Christian values allowing all religions in America to Worship & Practice Freely. Something Islam will never do.

    Oh, by the way, on “MUSLIM HERITAGE IN America” ....

    Have you ever been to a Muslim hospital, heard a Muslim orchestra, seen a Muslim band march in a parade, know of a Muslim charity, ever seen Muslims shaking hands with a Muslim Girl Scout, or ever seen a Muslim Candy Striper volunteering in a hospital ?

    Have you ever seen a Muslim do much of anything that ‘contributes’ positively to the “American way of Life” ?

    An earlier thread mentioned a Drudge Report poll of over 100K participants. Didn’t see it, but he has a list of polls which are all over the place. I believe with so many candidates; respondents are not paying attention to specific issues but rather whether they ‘like’ the candidates’ personae. Presently, we just have a Mister America contest.

    It will shake out - but there has to be some real debate on substantive issues. A debate with Rush and Mark Levin as moderators would be delicious.

    Thank you all for thanking me;) I get these really great emails from an old friend.

    IMHO, Hillary was Bubba’s Valerie Jarret. Clinton is not that bright. Have you ever heard him make an intellectual statement? The both of them just skated through their college days and were able to fool Arkansas with their phony Southern demeanor. Chelsea was a prop to make them appear to be a ‘family’ which we all know was/is phony.

    sodpoodle to Reaganite Republican

    just rec’d this great email:

    If you’re under 50 you really need to read this . If you’re over 50, you lived through it, so share it with those under 50. Amazing to me how much I had forgotten!

    When Bill Clinton was president, he allowed Hillary to assume authority over a health care reform. Even after threats and intimidation, she couldn’t even get a vote in a democratic controlled congress. This fiasco cost the American taxpayers about $13 million in cost for studies,
    promotion, and other efforts.

    Then President Clinton gave Hillary authority over selecting a female attorney general. Her first two selections were Zoe Baird and Kimba Wood – both were forced to withdraw their names from consideration. Next she chose Janet Reno – husband Bill described her selection as “my worst mistake.” Some may not remember that Reno made the decision to gas David Koresh and the Branch Davidian religious sect in Waco, Texas resulting in dozens of deaths of women and children.

    Husband Bill allowed Hillary to make recommendations for the head of the Civil Rights Commission. Lani Guanier was her selection. When a little probing led to the discovered of Ms. Guanier’s radical views, her name had to be withdrawn from consideration.

    Apparently a slow learner, husband Bill allowed Hillary to make some more recommendations. She chose former law partners Web Hubbel for the Justice Department, Vince Foster for the White House staff, and William Kennedy for the Treasury Department. Her selections went well: Hubbel went to prison, Foster (presumably) committed suicide, and Kennedy was forced to resign.

    Many younger votes will have no knowledge of “Travelgate.” Hillary wanted to award unfettered travel contracts to Clinton friend Harry Thompson – and the White House Travel Office refused to comply. She managed to have them reported to the FBI and fired. This ruined their reputations, cost them their jobs, and caused a thirty-six month investigation. Only one employee, Billy Dale was charged with a crime, and that of the enormous crime of mixing personal and White House funds. A jury acquitted him of any crime in less than two hours.

    Still not convinced of her ineptness, Hillary was allowed to recommend a close Clinton friend, Craig Livingstone, for the position of Director of White House security. When Livingstone was investigated for the improper access of about 900 FBI files of Clinton enemies (Filegate) and the widespread use of drugs by White House staff, suddenly Hillary and the president denied even knowing Livingstone, and of course, denied knowledge of drug use in the White House. Following this debacle, the FBI closed its White House Liaison Office after more than thirty years of service to seven presidents.

    Next, when women started coming forward with allegations of sexual harassment and rape by Bill Clinton, Hillary was put in charge of the “bimbo eruption” and scandal defense. Some of her more notable decisions in the debacle was:

    She urged her husband not to settle the Paula Jones lawsuit. After the Starr investigation they settled with Ms. Jones.

    She refused to release the Whitewater documents, which led to the appointment of Ken Starr as Special Prosecutor. After $80 million dollars of taxpayer money was spent, Starr’s investigation led to Monica Lewinsky, which led to Bill lying about and later admitting his affairs.

    Hillary’s devious game plan resulted in Bill losing his license to practice law for ‘lying under oath’ to a grand jury and then his subsequent impeachment by the House of Representatives.

    Hillary avoided indictment for perjury and obstruction of justice during the Starr investigation by repeating, “I do not recall,” “I have no recollection,” and “I don’t know” a total of 56 times while under oath.

    After leaving the White House, Hillary was forced to return an estimated $200,000 in White House furniture, china, and artwork that she had stolen.

    What a swell party – ready for another four or eight year of this type low-life mess?

    Now we are exposed to the destruction of possibly incriminating emails while Hillary was Secretary of State and the “pay to play” schemes of the Clinton Foundation – we have no idea what shoe will fall next. But to her loyal fans - “what difference does it make?”

    Electing Hillary Clinton president would be like granting Satan absolution and giving him the keys to heaven!

    And just think, since leaving the White House, the Clinton’s, through 2014, have made $221,139,576.00 and BOTH are drawing taxpayer funded U. S. Government pensions.

    Please pass this on. Our way of life may depend on it.

    An email I just received says it all.

    Hard to argue with this:

    A German ‘ s View on Islam - worth reading.

    This is one of the best explanations of the Muslim terrorist situation I have ever read. His references to past history are accurate and clear. Not long, easy to understand, and well worth the read. The author of this email is Dr. Emanuel Tanya, a well-known and well-respected psychiatrist. A man, whose family was German aristocracy prior to World War II, owned a number of large industries and estates. When asked how many German people were true Nazis, the answer he gave can guide our attitude toward fanaticism.

    ’ Very few people were true Nazis, ‘ he said, ‘ but many enjoyed the return of German pride, and many more were too busy to care. I was one of those who just thought the Nazis were a bunch of fools. So, the majority just sat back and let it all happen. Then, before we knew it, they owned us, and we had lost control, and the end of the world had come. ‘

    ’ My family lost everything. I ended up in a concentration camp and the Allies destroyed my factories. ‘

    ’ We are told again and again by ‘ experts ‘ and ‘ talking heads ‘ that Islam is a religion of peace and that the vast majority of Muslims just want to live in peace. Although this unqualified assertion may be true, it is entirely irrelevant. It is meaningless fluff meant to make us feel better, and meant to somehow diminish the specter of fanatics rampaging across the globe in the name of Islam. ‘

    ’ The fact is that the fanatics rule Islam at this moment in history. It is the fanatics who march. It is the fanatics who wage any one of 50 shooting wars worldwide. It is the fanatics who systematically slaughter Christian or tribal groups throughout Africa and are gradually taking over the entire continent in an Islamic wave. It is the fanatics who bomb, behead, murder, or honor-kill. It is the fanatics who take over mosque after mosque. It is the fanatics who zealously spread the stoning and hanging of rape victims and homosexuals. It is the fanatics who teach their young to kill and to become suicide bombers. ‘

    ’ The hard, quantifiable fact is that the peaceful majority, the ‘ silent majority, ‘ is cowed and extraneous. Communist Russia was comprised of Russians who just wanted to live in peace, yet the Russian Communists were responsible for the murder of about 20 million people. The peaceful majority were irrelevant. China ‘ s huge population was peaceful as well, but Chinese Communists managed to kill a staggering 70 million people. ‘

    ’ The average Japanese individual prior to World War II was not a warmongering sadist. Yet, Japan murdered and slaughtered its way across South East Asia in an orgy of killing that included the systematic murder of 12 million Chinese civilians; most killed by sword, shovel, and bayonet. And who can forget Rwanda , which collapsed into butchery? Could it not be said that the majority of Rwandans were ‘ peace loving ‘ ?

    ’ History lessons are often incredibly simple and blunt, yet for all our powers of reason, We often miss the most basic and uncomplicated of points: peace-loving Muslims Have been made irrelevant by their silence. Peace-loving Muslims will become our Enemy if they don ‘ t speak up, because like my friend from Germany , they will awaken one day and find that the fanatics own them, and the end of their world Will have begun. ‘

    ’ Peace-loving Germans, Japanese, Chinese, Russians, Rwandans, Serbs, Afghans, Iraqis, Palestinians, Somalis, Nigerians, Algerians, and many others have died because the peaceful majority did not speak up until it was too late. ‘

    ’ Now Islamic prayers have been introduced in Toronto and other public schools in Ontario , and, yes, in Ottawa , too, while the Lord ‘ s Prayer was removed (due to being so offensive?). The Islamic way may be peaceful for the time being in our country until the fanatics move in. ‘

    ’ In Australia , and indeed in many countries around the world, many of the most commonly consumed food items have the halal emblem on them. Just look at the back of some of the most popular chocolate bars, and at other food items in your local supermarket. Food on aircraft have the halal emblem just to appease the privileged minority who are now rapidly expanding within the nation ‘ s shores. ‘

    ’ In the U.K, the Muslim communities refuse to integrate and there are now dozens of “no-go” zones within major cities across the country that the police force dare not intrude upon. Sharia law prevails there, because the Muslim community in those areas refuse to acknowledge British law. ‘
    ‘ As for us who watch it all unfold, we must pay attention to the only group that counts - the fanatics who threaten our way of life. ‘

    Lastly, anyone who doubts that the issue is serious and just deletes this email without sending it on, is contributing to the passiveness that allows the problems to expand.
    Extend yourself a bit and send this on. Let us hope that thousands world-wide read this, think about it, and send it on before it ‘ s too late, and we are silenced because we were silent!

    Let’s ponder this:

    Cars can kill people when driven by auto insurance is mandatory. Insurance companies do background checks on your driving record and the DMV asks pertinent questions before issuing a tag or a license.

    Make gun insurance mandatory and let the potential insurers do an in depth background check. It could rule out the crazies.

  • Scott Walker couldn’t keep up with the bigots

    Scott Walker has too much dignity to participate in what has become a circus of personal attacks. Trump criticizes his opponents for sweating, drinking water, (Rubio) and other trivial stuff. Trump is just not somber enough to be CIC. His rambling is not humorous, or light-hearted banter, but vicious ridicule. Too childish for a grown man, much less a presidential candidate.

    Bombast, self-love and disdain for other people is not appealing.

    ***Convicted of 33 murders, Gacy was sentenced to death for 12 of these killings on March 13, 1980. He spent 14 years on death row before he was executed by lethal injection at Stateville Correctional Center on May 10, 1994.****

    Lived 14 more years than he should have been allowed.

  • GOP leaders: Trump sets us back on race

    My (now adult)white, Anglo-saxon children were raised in SC. They had many black friends and today they still do. When one young. married, lady had a child she named her after my daughter. One regularly has dinner with another close female friend and as a teenager, my son’s best fishing friend was also black.

    Why keep promoting the ‘problems’ we have - just get on with life. We will never meet everyone on this earth, but we should embrace the people we meet everyday, and judge them based on our interaction. To the politicians - stop using race as a basis for pandering.

    She’s just beginning to deal with Sanders and, soon Biden.

    As a result of losing his son, Biden is not being ridiculed for his gaffe prone persona.....which is fine. But, he is still the same old “stand up Chuck” Biden.

    How non PC of Dr. Carson to express his true beliefs, his principles and how refreshing that he describes facts in evidence.

    Other candidates need to listen up and do some factual checking before making stupid comments - IOW SHUT UP!!!!.

    I was seriously thinking of promoting pedestrian accident insurance for people who don’t have auto or bicycle coverage.

    Would call it “I-PED”; designed for addicted tweeters who cause accidents and bump into objects because they are unaware of their surroundings, other people etc.,

    It would replace Obamacare accident coverage - since tax-payers should not have to fund *witless while walking*

    *****There was once a civilization that was the greatest in the world. Its architects designed buildings that defied gravity. Its mathematicians created the algebra and algorithms that would enable the building of computers, and the creation of encryption. Its doctors examined the human body, and found new cures for disease. Its astronomers looked into the heavens, named the stars, and paved the way for space travel and exploration.

    Its writers created thousands of stories. Stories of courage, romance and magic. Its poets wrote of love, when others before them were too steeped in fear to think of such things.*****

    Well, since Muhammed was not born until 610 AD, the civilization which had all these wonderful accomplishments would not have been Muslim. IMHO Muhammed wanted to emulate Jesus Christ and create his own following.

    The PP vs. anchor babies conundrum.

    While sexually active American citizens abort their children for convenience; illegal SA immigrants have babies.

    God must be using this format to replace the millions of innocent aborted lives, with children whose parents were seeking a better life for their progeny.

    Just a random thought.

    The thread question is: “who was the most appealing PERSON in the GOP debate?”

    I only watched one debate - and of the four men, Lindsey was the most appealing.

    The question is not “who is best qualified to be POTUS, or whose experience demonstrates proven leadership for domestic and foreign issues, or whose conservative credentials appeal to chris37 and his friends?”

    The English language - use it - don’t abuse it!!!!!

    There is always hope - but hope needs ideas, problem solving and courage to turn dreams into reality.
