    Envy Illustrated Msgr. Charles Pope • January 17, 2018 • The Deadly Sin of Envy, Hieronymus Bosch (1480)In the reading at daily Mass for Thursday of the Second Week in Ordinary Time, we encounter an envious Saul. Upon David’s return from slaying Goliath, the women sing a song praising him. Saul should rejoice with all Israel but instead he is resentful and envies David:Saul was very angry and resentful of the song, for he thought, “They give David ten thousand, but only thousands to me. All that remains for him is the kingship.” And from that day on, Saul...

    It is time for polite, respectable, rational people to start saying what has become painfully obvious: It is time to stop respecting the rich, and start stealing from them. In earnest. Inequality is eating America alive. It has been growing for decades. To say that the American dream is dead is no longer a poetic exaggerationit is an accurate description of 40 years of wage stagnation and declining economic mobility that has produced a generation that cannot expect to live better than their parents did. Not because of devastating war or plague, but because of a very specific set of...

    On May 2, 2015, Susan Ingram lay facedown in the dark at her local Massage Envy in West Chester, Pennsylvania, one of the franchises nearly 1,200 spas nationwide. It was her seventh session with James Deiter, a massage therapist whom the spa had enthusiastically recommended. By now, Ingram trusted Deiter, and she closed her eyes and relaxed as he worked her muscles.

    On Tuesday's Deadline: White House, MSNBC host Nicolle Wallace again demonstrated that she is still obsessed with Sarah Palin's part in the 2008 presidential campaign as she found a way to work an anti-Palin jab into a discussion of Republican Jeff Flake publicly condemning President Donald Trump. MSNBC's Wallace Inserts Anti-Sarah Palin Jab into Trump DiscussionAfter right-leaning MSNBC contributor and Trump critic Charlie Sykes recalled the President's public feud with Myesha Johnson -- the widow of fallen soldier La David Johnson -- Wallace took a shot at the former Republican vice presidential nominee as she turned to fellow Republican-leaning MSNBC...

    S tanding at almost 510 in my stocking feet, Ive never been much for wearing high heels. I feel freakishly tall in them, but thats never stopped me from envying women who can pull off towering pumps and sandalsparticularly the sexy, spiky kindbecause it is much harder than it looks. Gracefully navigating sidewalks, stairs, and dance floors on six-inch needles requires a type of agility and confidencenot to mention sobrietyfew women possess altogether and at once. So perhaps thats why the claws came out at the sight of Melania Trumps stilettos Tuesday morning. The first lady boarded Air Force One...

    Melania Trump is far more popular than her husband, but she isn't the fairest, ahem, most well-liked, modern first lady of them all. Less than a month after the wife of President Donald Trump finally moved into the White House to join her spouse, the first lady's approval ratings have climbed by 14 points to 51 percent, a Fox News poll published Friday found. More Americans are also less inclined to dislike Melania Trump than there were before her husband became president, the poll found. About 28 percent of voters don't view her favorably, while 35 percent viewed her unfavorably...

    Jenny Slate, 35, is an American comedian, actor and author. The middle of three sisters, with a ceramicist mother and poet father, she was raised in Milton, Massachusetts. While at Columbia University, Slate performed standup and improv. Moving to Los Angeles with then-husband, director Dean Fleischer-Camp (theyve since amicably divorced), Slate joined Saturday Night Live in 2009, but accidentally swore in her first episode and was fired after one season. A stop-motion short animation made with Fleischer-Camp, Marcel the Shell With Shoes On, became a viral hit, leading to New York Times bestseller childrens books and plans for a feature-length...

    If you've felt your blood pressure rise after seeing passengers being served champagne on the tarmac while you're fighting for overhead space in coach, you are not alone. A new study finds that class division in the skies can have a real and occasionally dangerous effect on passengers in both sections of a plane. And when economy-class passengers are forced to pass through the luxurious first-class area on their way to the cramped economy seats, the rate of air rage incidents is more than seven times higher than if there were no first-class seats at all. Researchers report that the...

    The GOP frontrunner appears to have mixed up income and revenue. On two occasions, this writer has spent weeks striving to demystify the Vaticans finances. Now Im attempting to solve the riddle of Donald Trumps income and net worth. Pope Francis, who recently exchanged barbs with Trump over immigration, has bravely promised to open the Vaticans books. Trump sounds less righteous in claiming that he wont publicly release his tax returns while hes being audited by the IRS, but does pledge to eventually make the highly anticipated filings public. Until then, voters can glean a great deal of information from...

    Is Donald Trump suffering from a serious case of sleep deprivation? A New York Times columnist says Trump's behavior on the campaign trail may be caused by extreme lack of sleep. Timothy Eagan wrote: Trump gets by on barely half the amount of sleep recommended for a healthy life....three or four hours, and sometimes just 90 minutes. The Times says sleep deprivation makes people cranky and temperamental, impulsive, and smaller things set them off. The newspaper suggests that may account for his outbursts on the campaign trail where the GOP front runner said he wanted to punch a protester and...

    Neither Trump nor Sanders started the nation's current class war-the biggest fight over class since the New Deal-but both candidates, as different as they are, have benefited. Class is back. Arguably, for the first time since the New Deal, class is the dominant political issue. Virtually every candidate has tried appealing to class concerns, particularly those in the stressed middle- and lower-income groups. But the clear beneficiaries have been Trump on the right and Sanders on the left. Class has risen to prominence as the prospects for middle- and working-class Americans have declined. Even amidst a recovery, most Americans remain...

    One hesitates to give attention to Jesse A. Myerson. But it's probably worth it, if for no other reason to contend that many of his beliefs are likely shared by the mindless lemmings disguised as "journalists" who wildly cheered on Saturday when an obviously orchestrated "climate change" agreement designed ultimately to redistribute massive amounts of wealth from developed to underdeveloped countries — which would virtually guarantee that they will stay undeveloped — was announced in Paris. Almost two years ago, Myerson, whose experience includes "the Media and Labor Outreach committees at Occupy Wall Street," identified of "Five Economic Reforms Millennials...

    Real Clear Markets ^ | October 27, 2015 | Peter Schwartz
    The most distressing aspect of soak-the-rich schemes is not that the left keeps pushing them-but that the right regularly fails to offers a convincing refutation. When Democrats declare that the rich are not paying their "fair share" of taxes, the Republicans' typical response is: Oh yes, they are; look at how much more they pay, in both absolute dollars and percentage of income, than those in lower brackets. Besides-Republicans usually add-refraining from imposing higher taxes on the rich helps "society as a whole," because of all the jobs produced through their investment capital. But this type of response does not...

    Tom Tancredo thinks Donald Trump has taken his anti-immigrant rhetoric a bit too far. The real estate mogul and 2016 presidential hopeful needs to be a little bit more artful, Tancredo told the Denver Post. When asked whether he supports Trumps stance on immigration, though, Tancredo responded, God, yes. . . He should take lessons from me on how to talk to the press. For a small fee no, actually for a very large fee I will help him out. Youve got to learn how to talk about it, which takes years of practice, which God knows Ive...

    Feminists on social media have started a campaign called "give your money to women," or "Giveyourmoneytowomen" on Twitter. The point of the campaign is that, according to its creators, men benefit from numerous privileges, including the patriarchy and earning more money than females. For that reason, men should literally give money to women for no other reason than that they are female. Here are just some of the tweets being bandied about on social media:

    What Is the Deepest Root of Sin? It’s Not in Your Wallet and It’s Much Closer Than You Might Think By: Msgr. Charles PopeIn polling friends as to what they think is the deepest root of all sin, I got three main answers. One was a shrug indicating no answer at all (i.e., “I dunno”). Another was to refer to Scripture: For the love of money is a root of all kinds of evils (1 Tim 6:10). I’ll discuss below why this is an inadequate answer. The third main response was that original sin (and the concupiscence that followed) is the source of all of our other...
