      Brother Maynard: Armaments, chapter two, verses nine to twenty-one.
      Cleric: And Saint Attila raised the Hand Grenade up on high, saying, ‘O Lord, bless this Thy Hand Grenade that, with it, Thou mayest blow Thine enemies into tiny pieces… in Thy mercy.’
      And the Lord did grin, and the people did feast upon the lambs, and sloths, and carp, and anchovies, and orangutans, and breakfast cereals, and fruit bats, and large chu β€”
      Brother Maynard: Skip a bit, Brother.
      Cleric: And the Lord spake, saying, ‘First shalt thou take out the Holy Pin. Then, shalt thou count to three. No more. No less. Three shalt be the number thou shalt count, and the number of the counting shall be three. Four shalt thou not count, neither count thou two, excepting that thou then proceed to three. Five is right out. Once at the number three, being the third number be reached, then, lobbest thou thy Holy Hand Grenade of Antioch towards thy foe, who, being naughty in My sight, shall snuff it.’
      Brother Maynard: Amen.

        I gotta get a picture of it … on the road to my sommelier, Maison d’Chevron, there’s a house with and old outhouse in the yard. For whatever reason they added a star in the curve of the door’s crescent moon. It’s not really visible, it’s a good 100-feet or more off the hiway and you have to look for it, so I don’t think it was done for public consumption. Only thing I can think of is they wanted to create a shiite house.

    Good morning all. Another worthy commentary from Bishop Barron I’d like to share. Happy weekend to you all.

    We need to understand the great biblical story, beginning with Creation and the Fall, the formation of Israel, the coming of the prophets and patriarchs, and finally the formation of a people that leads to the coming of a savior. It’s only when we get the sweep of that whole story that we understand why the coming of the savior matters, and what the coming of the savior even means.

    When you extract Jesus from the biblical narrative, he becomes a mere guru, teacher, or philosopher. That’s all our culture gives us: Jesus as another mystic, seer, or sage. But when you see Jesus against the backdrop of the great story of Israel, now you see that he’s the savior.

    So this Advent, I would recommend to all Catholics, open up your Bible and get deeply immersed in the great biblical story.

    I grabbed this from a Facebook post. I think it’s pretty good.

    A fire has destroyed a town.
    There is no looting.
    There are no shootings.
    There are no protests about people not getting warnings.
    Every single news conference and interview, prayers are always requested.
    There’s so many donations being brought in that they are having a problem finding places to store items.
    Motels are offering free rooms for displaced people.
    There is love. There is compassion.
    Yet… there’s very little nation wide media coverage.
    That explains why this country is in the shape it’s in.
    Good news is old news, it’s not worth reporting, it doesn’t get ratings, it doesn’t cause conflict….it doesn’t cause division.

    This pouting, whiny-*ss diatribe should get your blood flowing this morning. “it’s time for democrats to fight dirty”

    FTA – “So what should Democrats do? Take a page from the GOP playbook and obstruct everything.”……. In perhaps the most brazen violation of democratic norms in living memory, the Republicans just stole the colossally important swing seat on the Supreme Court by obliterating precedent and refusing even to hold hearings for Merrick Garland”

    • Well, if the GOP had obstructed everything they way they were supposed to when we voted for them, they would have had President-elect Cruz, rather then President-elect Trump. Obstructing the Supreme Court nomination was the least they could do, and the Dems would consider themselves heroes if they did that to Trump. So when the Dems want to stop with the double standards, then we can talk.

      In the meantime, I’m dusting off the world’s smallest violin…

    Here’s a good read:
    https://pjmedia.com/rogerlsimon/2016/12/01/panic-in-progressive-park-what-if-trump-is-actually-good/?singlepage=true

    The Democrats, who have been floundering to an extent equally never before seen, are participating in a juvenile and over-priced recount while reelecting the terminally botoxed Nancy Pelosi to the House minority leadership even though that same chamber hemorrhaged Democrat members like a hemophilia victim under her rule. Topping that off, they’re considering Keith Ellison to helm the DNC, a man who, according to a recent report, “met with a radical Muslim cleric who endorsed killing U.S. soldiers and with the president of a bank used to pay the families of Palestinian suicide bombers” on a trip to Saudi Arabia organized by an arm of the Muslim Brotherhood.

    Talk about a party on a suicide run.

            FBI had bugs in the house, recorded and listens to the entire thing. They were trying to break a Hamas case and I guess they thought the case was more important than the girl’s life.
            The FBI did the exact same thing in NOLA five years later when they recorded a woman being killed by a drug dealer on the orders of a NOPD sergeant. FBI claimed the cops taled in NOPD signal codes and they didn’t understand them. Pure BS…no, a full-on lie.
