Buried inside this story is the quote that sums up the Democratic party in a nutshell:

“The question so many Democrats are asking themselves is this: Is it better to duck and cover through Election Day, or is it better to listen but ignore their concerns?” said NRCC spokesman Tory Mazzola.

That’s basically it.

Well I found out the best way to get parishioners to the end of the month after mass breakfasts at St. Anthony di Padua.

The secret is to start frying the kielbasa during the mass. The scent goes up the stairs to the main church “a fragrant aroma” (Philippians 4:18b). And when that “sweet smelling” (Numbers 15:7b) odor hits the parishioners who haven’t yet had breakfast, when mass ends they pour down the stairs to the church hall where…

“They all ate and were satisfied.” (Mark 6:42)

One funny story, a fine woman who I’ve known since grammar school was at mass as always with her 4 kids. Her husband never comes to church. The kids suggested that since there are free pancakes and Kielbasa maybe they can get him to go at least once a month.

It’s a good plan. Maybe it will work on the Christmas and Easter crowd. The Kielbasa can get them in the doors and and The Holy Spirit can do the rest.

Ironically today’s Gospel was Mark chapter 7.

Some interesting tactics being used to gin up support for Obama/Kennedy care.

These green shirts blocked the north entrance to the high school parking lot. All who wanted to enter to hear Representative Perlmutter had to go approximately 1/4 of a mile to the west entrance. They said everyone had to sign in for security reasons.

Apparently the security was for the security of the democratic party because once things got started the congressman Ed Permutter…

…who thanked all who had signed the clipboard form and stated that all these signatures would go on to to Washington showing support of the Obama Health Care Plan.

Well hey it not as if they were trying to move the event or something to keep people from showing up…Oh wait:

What should also be mentioned is that the location was changed at the last minute from the Aurauria campus to this high school. It was only the determination of the anti obamacare activists who were on top of this fact that any of our counterdemonstrators showed up at all.

The late breaking news on the OFA website the night before was noticed by one of the freedom groups and he alerted as many people as he could. No doubt, many showed up to protest at the other location and never knew of the change.

Well its not like they are kicking out people for questioning the presence of the Union astroturfers…Oh Wait again

He challenged Shea-Porter on the appearance of SEIU protesters in the room, one of whom got up and disrupted his question. When the first man then challenged the residency of the SEIU rep, police swooped in and removed him.

After all there is nothing more dangerous than an elderly retired policeman. You’d think it ain’t America no more?

Gee phony security, bussed in demonstrators, moving events, removing people who question them. The tactics used by the administration and its supporters seem old style soviet odd to an observer. It’s almost as they were part of some sort of Culture of Corruption or something.

My review of the game Punch-Out for the Nintendo Wii gamesystem is available at here.

I’ve actually only played the game sparingly but I’m spent MANY hours on the couch watching my son play the game while I was tapping away posts. I’ve seen more of this game than almost any other straight video game out there.
