We need to quit focusing on Obama. He's a sock puppet. His handlers purposely keep your focus on him (can you say golf, vacations, tan suits, bad "optics") so they may maneuver behind the scenes unimpeded.The way you presented your thoughts in this posting motivated, and helped, bring it about. I'd heard of a.k.a. obama as a 'Sock Puppet' before, but the idea for this show came from your posting: let's go with that! The 'lunacy' of it all is better seen when we take off the 'OZ glasses!' Thanks!
And if anyone thinks that the "been around forever" Republicans are any different, they need to increase their meds.
Francis Porretto has some thoughts about this.
In the meantime, I'll help the cause by donating through Ten Buck Friday. Because I believe in Hope. Not Obama's phoney hope, but the Theological Virtue of Hope.
Despair is a sin against the Virtue of Hope. I have more than enough sins without adding despair.Hope is the theological virtue by which we desire the kingdom of heaven and eternal life as our happiness, placing our trust in Christ's promises and relying not on our own strength, but on the help of the grace of the Holy Spirit.
"Let us hold fast the confession of our hope without wavering, for he who promised is faithful." "The Holy Spirit . . . he poured out upon us richly through Jesus Christ our Savior, so that we might be justified by his grace and become heirs in hope of eternal life."
The virtue of hope responds to the aspiration to happiness which God has placed in the heart of every man; it takes up the hopes that inspire men's activities and purifies them so as to order them to the Kingdom of heaven; it keeps man from discouragement; it sustains him during times of abandonment; it opens up his heart in expectation of eternal beatitude. Buoyed up by hope, he is preserved from selfishness and led to the happiness that flows from charity.
You didn't really expect to escape without a kitteh picture, did you?
