Keep up with Pat Buchanan

Here is a great site, Newsmax and an article about Pat Buchanan calling POTUS, the drug dealer of welfare.

We need to clone Pat as there is no one who speaks like he does. Here is a snippet.

“We used to have FDR talking about relief being a narcotic, a subtle destroyer of the human spirit. We've got to get off this welfare, is what he said. And in that sense it’s a narcotic.”

Romney wants to avoid turning welfare into a narcotic, Buchanan says. “We believe in temporary help for anybody that’s in trouble. You should have a floor of decency under every family. Unemployment should be temporary. Unemployment benefits should be temporary. Food stamps should be temporary. What are we doing with 47 million people who permanently have to be fed by the government?”

New Media vs. Old Media

Well, it is statistical now. The Old Media is suffering from the stranglehold of the leftist, doctrinaire agendas and the blogosphere is taking over the New Media real politics journalism.

Romney is probably ahead but we would never know it from the mainstream media. Ron Paul has a sizable following among the young conservatives, yet we would never know it, unless we read online, independent news sources.

The reason for the rebellion online is simple. Too many people are tired of not having a voice.

Compare the independent media sites with the giants and one can hardly believe the difference.

Different news, different opinions, different facts.....hello! Check this out and keep looking at the real deals.

A Poem for My Mother

I write lots of poetry. This is really my little loaf and fish gift from God. I love poetry and specialized in Medieval and Modern poetry at Notre Dame.

I share a "Found Poem" with you I wrote today. A "Found Poem" uses something which the poet has found, like a thing, or scrap of writing, or a photograph.

This is from an inscription carved into the side of a building in a private closed-up ancient alley in London.

I call my poem

Soul Propriete No. 3

As I stand at the large, half-opened window in the convent,
facing ancient bits of walls and new Victorian additions,
the voice of some clerk in London, whose duty was
to mark the beginnings and ends of properties
speaks to me in the sunlight.

His statement, etched in stone, until the last days of London,
clearly show the sole proprietor. 
"Half the Thickness of This Wall is in Paddington Parish" 
How exact the English were then, which they are not now.
How comforting was the Georgian mind for details.

1806, 1826, 1866, 1886, 1906, 1966, 2006, 2012
His voice clears the centuries with clear early 19th century
feet and inches. Does Paddington Parish really care about
half a thickness of wall? Taxes? Wall maintenance? Sole proprietor
of a closed alleyway which no one sees

Except me and a robin, clearly not interested in the mind of 
this maker. But, I am. Wondering at the great interests of
the new industrial world breaking into new views of walls
and ownership across England, those satanic mills
conquering small alleyways and arches.

There is still conquest in these words, an old lettering
a new idea of propriete mocked much later by Dickens,
who most likely walked this way at least once or twice.
Who knows? The footsteps of the past leading me, as 
I stare at a wall separating sole from soul.

My ideas are elsewhere, but the clerk's words ring out
reminding me of the little world I am leaving for awhile, 
a world I shall not miss that much, or at least that is
what I think today, listening to the cheeky robin
mocking the past and reminding me that even

The birds of the air have nests. I know Who is in charge.

Obama is targeting the video gamers for political support

Hmm, all the gamers I know are Ron Paul supporters. This topic would make for an interesting survey. I have added another poll at the side.

Putin on Romney and Obama-worth a look

This is my second night sky report for September

Four planets are up now and only now. However, you have to be looking at different times to see these beauties.

Starting at night, Mars and Saturn are visible at dusk here in England and in parts of America where it is dark about 7:30 pm and 8:30 pm. Both are up at sunset but can be seen if one is looking in the southwest. Tonight look for Mars next to the crescent Moon

Saturn will disappear in October so try and see it now.

Mars is obvious with its red tinge.

Venus and Jupiter start out from the morning sky clearly. I have seen these in the eastern dawn sky and the planets are worth an early morning view.

Earth from Mars, 2006
Look now, as the sky changes in October and I shall not be here to help you look. By the time I am writing to you again, even for a short while, my favourite, Strider, Orion, will be dominant in the December sky.

St. Januarius, pray for us.

This is one of the three days when the blood of St. Januarius liquifies. I, for one, have never been to Naples, but would love to go on this day and honour this martyr. Blessed Cardinal Newman could not deny the miracle of the blood.

I would also, of course, visit the museum. Here is a great link for a commentary on both.

May this powerful intercessor pray for all of us in the West at this time of confusion and turmoil. May he raise up men like himself to witness to the faith in season and out of season.

From La Stampa-Vatican Insider

September 18th: an article from Vatican Insider indicates some interesting points which are in the air regarding the SSPX. No surprises.

Here is a section from the article.

Vatican Insider has learnt that Fellay’s much anticipated response should still be interlocutory and contain certain conditions. If these involve requests that are to do with pastoral matters or discipline, the Holy See is willing to take these into consideration. Some conditions were discussed following the July chapter. The first three were considered “absolute” and were to do with the “freedom to correct the promoters of the errors or the innovations of modernism, liberalism, and Vatican II and its aftermath.” The second condition involved the “exclusive use of the Liturgy of 1962,” whilst the third requires “the guarantee of at least one bishop.” Other less binding conditions included the possibility of having a separate ecclesiastical court of the first instance and the exemption of the houses of the Society of St. Pius X from the diocesan bishops.

Agreement can be reached on most points and the Holy See is prepared to discuss these and incorporate changes in the draft about the future canonical normalisation of the Society of St. Pius X. What are not subject to discussion are the doctrinal issues outlined in the preamble. Lefebvrians are required to accept the Motu Proprio Summorum Pontificum. Therefore, although they will be allowed to celebrate mass using the old Missal (an extraordinary form of the Roman Rite), they will still have to recognise that the ordinary form was introduced as a result of the post-Conciliar reform, whose validity and lawfulness is unquestionable.

Cute Wednesday
