Where are we today? WHO are we today?!

Of course this is just my perception, and my OPINION, but thinking back several decades, I  recall that racial problems had just about been extinguished altogether. Reminiscing about the Dean Martin Roasts, and in particular Don Rickles, who insulted every race, Creed and person indiscriminately, LOL ... Not many, if any, took exception or offense. It was all just great fun ... everyone was laughing; not just on the show, but in the country. We had gone through the race thing in the sixties ... yes it was intense. But people who had brains and hearts came to the realization that we all bleed the same color blood and skin color means absolutely nothing!

So if someone was referred to by the ethnic term of the times, it was water off a duck's back. Every people, every person, has their quirks. Many are quite endearing. The things that were said about people back then for the most part, were never meant to degrade or take away the people or persons dignity; it was simply pointing out the intricacies of each in jest. And what did that do actually? It made us all smile a little bit more. It made us all chuckle a little bit more. And you know what? I really think that it helped us all get along a little bit more and brought us closer together in the long run.
Then what happened?

So here we are, having to sift our words before we speak so that no one is offended. And the worst part about this is that now, we have to be careful not to offend the people who are offencive TO US. Many of us still hold fast to biblical truths and the old fashioned morals and scruples we were raised on. And thank God for that! There is so much to all this stuff that it truly puts my head in a whirl. But I assure you, it is NOT merely an issue of political correctness.
Manipulation can be and *IS* a very subtle industry.

Think about it, how absolutely ridiculous is it to spend millions of taxpayer dollars to investigate trash back to the persons high school days if you don't like what they stand for? And really that's all it is ... you don't agree with them, you want them to hold YOUR opinion ... And if they don't/won't, then just make their lives miserable until they change their way of thinking or slink away into obscurity. Regardless of their political, economical or religious beliefs, all that aside, how absolutely asinine is it to go back to their school days and try to wreck their lives and livings because at some point in their life, at a party, they put on blackface and dressed as a negro. Do they do this with people who dressed as Indians, Attila the Hun, Marco Polo, Christopher Columbus, a fairy godmother or the devil himself? Some of the people in the Dean Martin Roasts are still alive, when are they going to be indicted for racial slurs? This is all just so utterly ridiculous! 

It really does not matter what side of the fence you're on, for what purposes you work or what goals you hold for the future. Some things are just right and some things are just wrong, and they always will be because 
TRUTH DOES NOT CHANGE. And one of those things is taking away life from an innocent person. Thou shalt not murder is the same today as it was when Moses got the tablets, AND IT IS NOT REGULATED BY THE AGE OF THE VICTIM! How anybody can scowl at the statement that babies are people and made in the image and likeness of God and have an inalienable right to life is absolutely beyond my comprehension and totally totally evil personified. And those that actually perform these intrinsically evil acts .... all I can say is may God have mercy on their souls and give them the grace to repent before their last breath.

The way I see it, and of course it's just my opinion, there's a lot of childishness in politics these days. Well actually it's mostly greed when you come right down to it ... and avarice of course, but I guess what I mean to say is that the lust for greed and avarice produces a very childish response in an attempt to get what they want. There is no arguing that there is a lot of money to be made in drugs, trafficking and selling organs. And it's sad to say, and can hardly be refuted, that many politicians are on the receiving end of envelopes in their pockets as long as they legislate to keep the avenues open perpetuating these atrocities for their under the table "bonuses".

And I think the biggest waste of USA money today, are the presidential investigations, for more than a couple of years now, into Trump's financial situation and this so-called Russian collusion business. When one thing fails, they simple invent another, spending more of our tax dollars instead of doing something PROACTIVE. Trump has bettered the country in many different areas which I won't go into here. They can easily be researched and verified. He cares about the value of life. He shows respect for God almighty and has encouraged others to do the same.

He's increased the job market and research proves (going back decades and decades) that he is so far from being a racist that it's laughable. They say that the deals he makes only lines his pockets and the pockets of his rich friends. Yet here is a man who gave up the last years of what could have been an easy cushy life knowing how much ridicule he and his family would be put through by trying to do the right thing for others. And he doesn't even accept his presidential salary! He donates it to different causes every quarter! ... say what you want about him, but he didn't get to where he is - or even where he was before the presidency, by being an idiot or fool. That's only common sense! And you're certainly, of course, free to call him a liar, however, please do recall the old adage which is so very true: "Actions speak louder than words."

He has cracked down on human trafficking BIG LEAGUE (or BIGLY if you prefer). I believe that the elites from DC to Hollywood to the Royals and beyond are not only shaking in their boots about the thought of being exposed; but are so angry about the possibility of their fun, games and TOYS being taken from them, that they'll stop at nothing to ensure their degraded perversities can continue. It's not just the Weinstein or Epstein types that are regular players either. Why do you think so many celebrities have decided to finally speak up about what really goes on in Hollywood? And if you think it stops at mere sex trafficking, you're extremely naive. But that's another sordidly horrific topic.

So yes, I think Trump's doing his job; which is more than I can say for the Democrats who sit there blocking ANYTHING Trump tries to do regardless if it hurts the American people.

Trump pulled us out of places where we were getting the short end of the stick, and rightfully so. Shouldn't every country protect and ensure the best for its citizens? If history proves me wrong, so be it; but for right now I believe he's one of the most honest and hard-working presidents we've ever had, bar none. I believe he's going through hell and they're trying to take him down because he can't be controlled, because he cannot be bought, because he has no special interest groups that he owes favors to. He is not beholding to anyone or anything but his own conscience, and of course, God Almighty.

I want to go back to the fifties. I want to go back to when people had respect for people, regardless of their lifestyles, creeds, political affiliations and all the rest. Much of the stuff that exists today existed then as well, but no one attempted to force the general public to swallow it. "You do your thing and I'll do mine; and when we pass in the street, we'll nod smile and greet!" (LOL, that just popped out of me and I like it!)

Things were more honest before all this crap began ... More real.

Yeah, I want to go back to that time and leave all this future behind!

The Apostle, St. John tells us exactly how to recognize the spirit of truth from the spirit of falsehood. He says "as for them, they are of the world - and the world listens to them because they speak the language of the world. But we are children of God and those who know God: LISTEN TO US. Those who are not of God REFUSE TO LISTEN TO US. That is how we can tell the spirit of truth from the spirit of falsehood." ~1 John 4:6 [The "us" to whom St. John refers are the Apostles, and their successors the Bishops.]

Prayer to avoid the Sin of PRIDE:
“Oh My Jesus help me to avoid the sin of pride when I speak in Your Name. Forgive me if I ever belittle anyone in Your holy Name. Help me to listen Jesus when Your Voice is spoken and fill me with Your Holy Spirit so that I can discern the truth of Your Word when You call out to mankind. Amen.”

A prayer of St. Teresa of Avila:
O my God! Source of all mercy! I acknowledge Your sovereign power. While recalling the wasted years that are past, I believe that You, Lord, can in an instant turn this loss to gain. Miserable as I am, yet I firmly believe that You can do all things. Please restore to me the time lost, giving me Your grace, both now and in the future, that I may appear before You in "wedding garments." Amen.

“My children, let your speech be chosen with great care—it must be a light in the world. Know and believe that all you say has repercussions in time and eternity. Therefore, choose your words with wisdom and prudence, choosing to remain silent rather than fill the air with useless chatter or worse, gossip or virulent speech. Let your speech be a perfect mirror of your peaceful heart, a heart firmly grounded in the love of God and in complete trust in His goodness. Silence is often the more virtuous path. Bridle your tongue and you will be working for peace in the world.”

In the Name of Jesus I renounce as lies all thoughts that enter my mind from the evil one who accuses. By the authority of Jesus, I command them to leave me. I consecrate my mind to God for transformation into His Thoughts for my protection, salvation and His glory.

It must be said, that like the breaking of a great dam, the American decent into Marxism is happening with breath taking speed, against the back drop of a passive, hapless sheeple, excuse me dear reader, I meant people.

Just a Note:

Through the grace of God and many prayers, I survived a double surgery (with cancer) in the fall of 2008. Since then has becoming increasingly important to me to enhance my prayer life. I have taken on the task of praying for strangers and those with little hope and much adversity. To that end, I've also begun (July '09), to make rosaries and related items to put prayer into the hands of as many as I can that will PRAY for others.

The world is at the precipice ... we need to TAKE ACTION ... NOW. Time for fence sitting is quickly coming to an end. We all need to do what ever we can in the way of PRAYER & PENANCE to beg God's Grace upon humanity that we may shake away this sinfulness and pride to get back on the road that leads to heaven and our Glorious Triune God!

After you have made a decision that is pleasing to God, the devil may try to make you have second thoughts. Intensify your prayer time, meditation, and good deeds. For if satan's temptations merely cause you to increase your efforts to grow in holiness, he'll have an incentive to leave you alone.
~St. Ignatius of Loyola
