Went to dinner tonight

At a sushi place the wife likes.  They had two TVs going - one had golf, the other had a rugby match - Glascow vs. Ulster.

I pointed out the rugby match to the Mrs.  I don't know the rules, but it's always fun to watch.  The Mrs. looked over her shoulder (the TV was behind her), watched ten seconds of the game, and then came around to my side of the table so she could watch while she ate.

She's now hooked on rugby now.  I need to find a game or two around here so I can take her.

Got a new computer

Kicking the wheels, testing the acceleration, you know the drill.  The old one is stuttering so hard right now that I can't even back up files to my portable hard drive.  I may end up transferring files via a thumb drive.

Sorry 'bout the lack of posting.  Kinda been busy.

Ramadi falls

I haven't written anything about Ramadi falling to ISIS.    There's lots of folks out there writing better articles about it than I can.  I'm sure you can find more.

So here's the statement I have to make about it - Let's take two presumptions:

1 - Obama is so incompetent that his foreign policy has been a disaster to the extent that the world will never recover from the damage.

2 - Obama is working for America's enemies to damage America in ways that cannot be repaired.

How could you tell these two presumptions apart?  Because that's the scenario we're faced with right now.

Paid to protest

Is there any Leftist activity in this country that isn't organized to further disrupt the rest of us?
Doubtful.

The Ferguson protesters were getting paid to protest.  Which means that they had to be organized enough to know WHO the professional protesters were, and how to conduct their protesting business.

Behold, the Progressives.

The Answer is "Yes"

To this question:

One by one, the great institutions that gave meaning to Western civilization have fallen to their infection.  Our schools teach their false history, our universities enforce their fascist speech codes, our media coddle their thuggish political hacks, our military is seconded to serve their social rather than our national security agenda, courts are enjoined to consider “just outcomes” rather than due process,” and now even the elected president of the United States questions the logic of the First Amendment, the guarantee of free speech. 
Can they possibly have now also captured the Church of Rome?

First, they captured the Catholic Church decades ago, with enough force to bring about the Second Vatican Counsel.  The changes wrought to the Mass were enough to twist it away from what it should be, and towards what the Marxists want it to be - completely removed from the spirituality of the church.

Second, for decades the Church has happily handed over it's responsibilities to the governments whenever it could:  Feeding the poor, sheltering the homeless, helping the suffering.  It was just so much EASIER to let the government take over, don't you know, until Catholic charities are but a shadow of their former selves.  Still potent, still able to function to some degree, but still a shadow of their former selves.  This is a direct result of the Marxists inserting themselves into Church leadership and allowing their political ideologies to direct the Church's actions.

Third, they have allowed all the modern Marxist heresies to permeate the Church's branches to the point where a Catholic priest tweets out support of same-sex marriage, and when he gets fired for it, other Catholics react in shock.  Have they not even bothered to learn their own Church's teachings?  Why don't they start with the Sacrament of Marriage?

Once again, and I hate to sound like I'm beating out the same beat on the same drum over and over, if you are Catholic, you owe it to yourself to find a Latin Mass somewhere close to where you are, and start attending it.  Come see the Church as it should be.

And the Ragin' Mrs. puts it well:

Now we know the Border Patrol is pretty much Obama's special army.

So, to whit:

An American Citizen driving from one point in America to another point in American is detained by the Border Patrol for "acting nervous".

She's not under arrest.  She hasn't done anything wrong.  But she's told she cannot have her car until a K9 unit arrives.  And when she argues with them, they tackle her and taze her.

This happened.  In America.

Tar.  Feathers.

And this is how America dies

Stupid people voting for a well-known name that's pushed by the media.

Ten bucks says that most Hillary supporters don't even know who Chris Stevens was.

Tyrone Woods and Glenn Doherty wouldn't even make their mental needle move a tic.
