Power Plant Men’s Club Prizes and a Story of Luck

Give it a shot, it’s so very worth it!!!! Promise!!!!

Power Plant Men

My wife used to wince a little each time I told her I would be late coming home that evening because I was going to the Men’s Club dinner after work. Not because I was going to be spending the evening at the Raccoon Lodge with Ralph Cramden:

Ralph and Norton at the Raccoon Lodge Ralph and Norton at the Raccoon Lodge

It wasn’t because I would come home Blotto’ed after an evening of drinking. No. The reason my wife would cringe at the thought of Men’s Club was because about half the time I went to Men’s Club I would come back with some sort of prize.

You see… I have always been cursed with being lucky. It came in handy sometimes because there were times when I was flying by the seat of my pants and if I wasn’t just plain lucky, things would have ended quite suddenly and there would not have been any…

Synod Preamble . . . The Pope’s Extraordinary But Perilous Policy

Excellent article; admittedly, I had to read and reread slowly to feel sure I understood the points, warnings and implications.I ved through the time of the Second Vatican Council while still quite young, I remember the “lost feeling” so many Catholics had at the various “newnesses”, esp. in language, which somehow seemed (to me) to diminish The CatholicChurch ! I imagine many readers are familiar with EWTN (EternalWordNetworkTelevision), with a worldwide presence! Prior to Pope Francis I historic visit to the USA, Setp. 2015, I contacted EWTN in its Q&A arena, over 2-3 weeks posing two questions (1 ea time) regarding Papal Political Activism, as I was becoming concerned since this Pope’s elevation/election by COC in Rome three years ago–concerned about his many very public statements reflecting a clearly liberal voice & position on matters of Politics and social issues within sovereign Nations & nation-states, seemingly viewing the NWO (new world order) as a done deal, while still talking about justice, love, equality, noting females should be educated, all religious accepted, with no delineation addresing any ‘religion’ which expresses itself in violence, vengeance, oppression and total ‘codified’ control in the name of ‘religion’! My ?’s to EWTN were much shorter, simply regarding “Papal Activism”; still wawiting response which I not sure will be forthcoming!
Yes, of course, dialog is healthy, a dialog which contains prayer and thought, some knowledge of an issues history; yet, as an American Catholic, many things are exactly what they are, have been, and will always be (no matter who says or writes what or labels it in celestial & poetic Latin), God’s Law, The Teaching of of Jesus, are not subject to revision based on the social mores of the day or the inclinations of those who only wish for the State to replace God!
Interesting and accurate the article concludes with reference to the Gates of Hell and God’s promise they will never prevail against The Church, but, of necessity, goes on to note, that is, if we don’t attack them!
The current Pontifical Positions seem, at least in part to, be taking a most dangerous path descending directly & aggressively toward the ‘gates of evil’–and with what consequence?
God Bless and Help Pope Francis to see Your Everlasting Will for Your Church, and Grant Him Your Blessing to truly be a Faithful Successor to Saint Peter and The-Son-of God, Jesus Christ, through The Wisdom of the Holy Spirit, Amen!

In light of the fast approaching Synod of the Family, here is an excellent article written for The Wanderer by Louise Kirk:

September 24, 2015

Synod-on-the-Family-imageThe time of Pope Francis’ visit to the U.S. has arrived as I write this. Each stage of his journey, in Washington, New York, and Philadelphia, promises individual riches but will also be watched by the world as a preamble to the Synod of the Family happening in October.
The Holy Father is aware of this. In a direct challenge to the Obergefell v. Hodges Supreme Court ruling he recently urged Catholic married couples to take up the defense of marriage between one man and one woman as a mission entrusted to them.
He explained that this mission is all the more important given that “the image of the family — as God wills it, made up of one man and one woman, in view…

International Day of Peace – September 21st

Appreciate info; please no offense intended in my comments; however, the ‘United Nations’ DayOfPeace” quite insincere! Come On, the GenAssembly voted to approve bama’s ‘give Iram Nukes” back-room deal; UN secretly (mostly) basks in it’s AgendaTwenty-One; exploits USA & NYC genorisity–‘diplomat immunity’; party-hearty in City-That-Never-Sleeps!! And now, The Pope, if I’m not mistaken, callling himself “PrinceOfPeace”–arrogant for The Pope to this Catholic’s mind! Advance Men, Cardinals laying ground work, appearing on various “News” outlets saying his message is a “Spiritual One, a Pontifical Message, etc., and not one of Politics, however allowoing for some difficulties in separating them! This Pope has always been aggressive & arrogant, with a very public display of humility (which I believe sincere to a point); however, Pope Fancis instrumantal in “normalizing” (sic?) relations between USA&Cuba (where avg Cuban worker is lucky to earn $20 – $25.00 bucks A Month, Per Month — way less than a dollar a day!) But it’s good to know that things are normalized (sic?)! Question: Does that mean acceptable to ThePapacy, since The Communists (like Francis) generally like that wage-to-worker ratio?

Monday, September 21st, is the United Nations International Day of Peace.  Secretary-General, Ban Ki-moon (who was a guest on Stephen Colbert’s great new show the other night) declares:

“I call on all warring parties to lay down their weapons and observe a global ceasefire. To them I say: stop the killings and the destruction, and create space for lasting peace.”

Some Catholic resources to use to work and pray for peace:

USCCB: Justice, Peace and Human Development

A Primer on Peace

The True Meaning of Peace

Catholic Peace Fellowship

The Promotion of Peace

And here’s a prayer to offer for the people of brutally war-torn Syria:

Almighty eternal God, source of all compassion,
the promise of your mercy and saving help fills our hearts with hope.
Hear the cries of the people of Syria;
bring healing to those suffering from the violence,
and comfort to those…

Hillary’s Obama Muslim Smear missed by Media, Lands on Trump

See McLeod’s article Re: HelNoHill smear tactic back when she tried this “pathos”run the first time!

BLOGGIN' BAD w/ Gunny G! ~ HEY! NO MORE PC, REMEMBER? ~AMERICA CANNOT BE GREAT AGAIN UNTIL THE STAIN, STIGMA, STENCH AND SHAME OF "THE PRINCE OF FOOLS" IS OFFICIALLY AND FINALLY UNDENIED, AINOs (AMERICANS IN NAME ONLY) RECOGNIZED, AND THE SWAMP FLUSHED! -POTUS TRUMP!.....-IF WE CAN KEEP HIM?

Trump: “The bigger issue is that Obama is waging a war against Christians in this country.” Hillary’s Obama Muslim Smear missed by Media, Lands on Trump Author By Judi McLeod September 20, 2015 | Comments| Print friendly | It is not politically correct or kosher to call President Barack Obama a Muslim even if suspicions run high that he is one. Those who conclude that, given his conduct, Obama must be Muslim will be tagged, taunted, media-harassed, made a scapegoat and forced by a holier-than-thou “highly offended” mainstream media, to get down on their knees and apologize. Smear victims know by now that even if the demanded apology were proffered with the necessary groveling thrown in for good measure, any future the apologist once had is now as dead as halal meat.
