  • Hurry Up! Modern Patience Thresholds Lower Than Ever Before, Technology To Blame

    Study Says ^ | September 3, 2019 | John Anderer
    Patience is a virtue, but it’s becoming an exceedingly rare quality in modern society. According to a new survey of 2,000 British adults, all of the luxuries of modern life have made most people incredibly impatient — across pretty much every aspect of their lives. Three quarters of those surveyed said they believe the dominance of digital technology, such as smartphones and on-demand TVs, are to blame for this ever growing lack of patience. Respondents reported becoming frustrated after just 16 seconds of waiting for a web page to load, and after 25 seconds of waiting for a traffic light...
  • The rare wisdom of our president is a gift: Temperance crossed with almost outlandish boldness

    Politicians are used to seeing cowardice and being cowards. So used to it are they that they cannot even imagine there being another way. Our president has proven to be quite different. He is fearless. He is bold. He acts. He accomplishes. (What he would be accomplishing if those in his party had the courage to support him is hard to conceive.) If one takes a moment to look at his brilliance, it is a truly rare and beautiful thing. First off, the attacks were made to wear him down and wear him out. To make him sue (and compromise)...
  • Want to know why Israelis have little patience for Jewish Democrats?

    Want to know why Israelis have little patience for Jewish Democrats? First, none of their leaders accepted the invitation to attend the opening of the US Embassy in Jerusalem, Israel's capital. Second, Bernie Sanders just agreed with Hamas that they have the right to return to Israel, which would spell the end of Israel. ..... So when Jewish Democrats wonder why Israel ignores their views on Israel or take their protests to be pro-Israel with a pinch of salt they will understand why. These actions from their political leaders are as lame as they were when they backed the awful...

    Deputy AG Rod Rosenstein and AG Jeff Sessions are working hand-in-hand on dismantling the Deep State. Deep State corruption is deep and embedded. No normal investigation is going to cut it. Enter The Donald. Critics of Sessions need to understand that Sessions is a prosecutor in the traditional, Wyatt Earp sense. He doesn't camera hog He rarely gives press releases, media interviews, or conferences. He does the work diligently behind the scenes. Why (Nicolas Cage from the movie "The Rock" here) IN ZEUS' BUTTHOLE! is Sessions all of a sudden a Deep State mole, when for years he's been a...

    WASHINGTON, June 30 (Reuters) - U.S. President Donald Trump said on Friday that North Korea's nuclear and ballistic missiles program required a "determined response," and that the era of "strategic patience" with North Korea's government had ended. "The era of strategic patience with the North Korean regime has failed. ... Frankly, that patience is over," Trump said in the White House Rose Garden in a joint appearance with South Korean President Moon Jae-in.
  • Patience Is a (Political) Virtue

    I admit I clearly was not born with the patience gene. As a kid my mother was always saying to me, "Patience, patience, patience." Today my wife Colleen is always saying the same thing,"Mike. Patience, patience." It's no use. For example, when I go to a movie I hate standing in line. It's always just driven me absolutely nuts. Now at least I can have my son go online and buy the tickets before we get there. Whenever there's a line at a restaurant, I just turn and walk away. When my friends just look at me, I tell...
  • 9/11 mastermind: Al Qaeda favors 'immigration' to defeat USA

    11/23/2016 11:58:39 AM PST · by TigerClaws · 22 replies
    The jailed architect of 9/11 revealed that al Qaeda's plan to kill the United States was not through military attacks but immigration and "outbreeding nonmuslims" who would use the legal system to install Sharia law, according to a blockbuster new book. Khalid Sheikh Mohammed also predicted that intelligence officials using so-called "enhanced interrogation" techniques such the waterboarding he experienced would eventually come under attack from weak-kneed U.S. politicians and media. In Enhanced Interrogation, CIA contractor James Mitchell tells for the first time about his role interrogating al Qaeda principles, many like KSM still jailed at Guantanamo Bay. He details accounts...
  • Patience is the progressives most deadly weapon

    12/31/2016 9:14:43 AM PST · by ProgressingAmerica · 10 replies
    Have you ever read Theodore Roosevelt's Bull Moose party platform? You should. In Chapter 3 of his book "The Art of War", Sun Tzu writes: If you know the enemy and know yourself, you need not fear the result of a hundred battles. If you know yourself but not the enemy, for every victory gained you will also suffer a defeat. If you know neither the enemy nor yourself, you will succumb in every battle. That quote has been in the right side bar of the progressingamerica blog since day one, and will never change. We need to know progressives...
  • How To Patiently Wait For God’s Timing in Prayer

    02/10/2016 7:42:59 PM PST · by Armen Hareyan · 7 replies ^ | Feb. 10, 2016 | Armen Hareyan you pray with faith and without doubt, God schedules the answer in His own time. He has a set time for it in the sense that “there is a time for everything, and a season for every activity under the heavens.” (Ecclesiastes 3:1). The Lord sends the answer in His own time and it’s always on time. We need to learn to trust God’s timing because he knows what’s the best time for us to receive or not to receive what we are asking for. We don’t give everything, which our children ask from us, do we? We don’t...

    Fortitude, Patience, and Meekness: Three Virtues We Often Separate, but That Belong Together Msgr. Charles Pope • July 20, 2015 • There is an important interplay and balance between the virtues that many modern minds set in opposition to one another. False dichotomies often prevail when the subtlety of virtues are lost or their meanings are grasped in simplistic or inaccurate ways.Consider three virtues that are related and which enable and moderate one other: fortitude, patience, and meekness. To most people, these virtues seem more opposed than related. Today, fortitude conjures up an image of a fearless warrior in battle,...

    Bear Wrongs Patiently – A Meditation on the 5th Spiritual Work of Mercy By: Msgr. Charles PopeHere is  perhaps the most revolutionary of the Spiritual works of mercy. It is the one tied most directly to the Cross of our Lord Jesus Christ. To decide to bear wrongs patiently is nothing less than to declare a revolution and to wage a very paradoxical counteroffensive against this world and its economy of anger.There is a cycle of violence and retribution in which the devil seeks to engage us. The cycle begins with one person harming or slighting another, perhaps tempted to do so...
  • Obama security agenda urges ‘strategic patience,’ drawing criticism amid ISIS threat

    02/06/2015 6:39:04 PM PST · by ButThreeLeftsDo · 47 replies ^ | 2/6/15 | FoxNews/AP
    President Obama unveiled a national security strategy on Friday that called for "strategic patience" and warned against American "overreach" -- an approach that drew criticism as some lawmakers say the rising threat from the Islamic State demands a more urgent response. The 29-page document is meant to serve as a blueprint for Obama's final two years in office. The strategy cast the U.S. as an indispensable force in combating global challenges -- including terrorism, climate change and cyber threats.

    This summer has served as a reminder to me about the virtue of virtues, specifically hard work and perseverance. Last winter, our 12-year-old son, Robert, was accepted into an honors performance group as a string bass player, based on his teacher's recommendation and an MP3 submission of his playing. In May, he was sent four pieces of music to master by late June, when he was to perform them in New York. It was not easy. The music arrived late, and his summer schedule was already mostly filled with plans for a vacation and camp -- but the music had...

    Archdiocese of Washington ^ | 9/15/2010 | Msgr Charles Pope
    What do you expect from your relationship to Jesus Christ? I have come to discover that many do not expect all that much. In effect they hope that faith can kind of help them “muddle through” life and offer them a few consolations that, perhaps things will be better some day, and in heaven. Others see the moral life described in the scriptures more as a duty than a description of the person being transformed by Jesus Christ. And because they see it as a list of duties,  rather than the result of grace, they tend to resent it, consider...

    In yesterdayÂ’s blog post, (which was actually a written version of my Sunday sermon), I mentioned that it might make sense for us to look more deeply at some of the virtues In the Letter to the Colossians which ought to be cultivated by a Christian, especially in the family setting.The third chapter of The Letter to the Colossians, while speaking in a general way about vices to be avoided and virtues to be cultivated, has a particular family focus since it builds to its conclusion about wives being submitted, husbands loving their wives, and children obeying their parents. Because...

    One afternoon I stopped by the bank to make a few deposits. I was in a rush and needed to get in and out as soon as possible. I had places to go and things I had to do. I picked the worst possible time of day and the worst day of the week to do my banking. But I had been out of town and needed to catch up on errands before the weekend began. There was only one teller working and the line was about fifteen people deep. After waiting patiently, I got close to the front of...
