Voting time is almost upon us and this election could change the face of our nation forever. We have some definite choices between the two candidates. One is a proven liar, inept politician, extremely pro-abort, longing to bring in hundreds of thousands of questionable ‘refugees’ from the Middle East, great at doing laundry if it refers to money, and says she represents the struggles of the middle class as she spouts forth rhetoric dressed in tacky outfits which, believe it or not, cost more than some of our monthly salaries. She wants to take away our amendment rights and her plans will soon raise our taxes but will give the citizens little in return. It is proven that she had been greatly funded by Middle Eastern countries that want worldwide Sharia Law and condone the persecution of Christians, the downgrading of women, and the extermination of Jews and gays. She disrespects the military and proved her consideration of keeping our embassies overseas safe when she let Benghazi burn down and lied about why this happened. She also has health issues that have been evident. She comes with a multitude of ‘baggage’ which can and will affect how she governs our country.
Donald Trump is definitely not the perfect candidate but promises to break the establishment entanglements and forge a new path. His choices for the Supreme Court will be more advantageous to the country and not likely to pander to private interest groups like the ones chosen by obama and which may be selected by Hillary.
However, in today’s news it has stated again that Mr. Trump is getting a poor showing among the Catholic vote! Seems to me that one has some choice in voting: vote for the better candidate this election which is definitely not Hillary Clinton. Refuse to vote, period, and basically by omission send the vote Hillary’s way, or vote for Gary Johnson who supports legalized marijuana, is against military intervention, long-time supporter of abortion, and is outspoken against religious freedom as he feels it creates a bias against the gay community. He is hoping to garner 15% approval and get to be on the debate stage but, still, the chance of him getting elected are slim so there goes another 15% of the vote to Hillary.
It is certainly an interesting age for this election year but it started eight years ago when people voted for historical purposes – the first black president regardless of his capabilities which have been shown to be lacking. Now, the same lemmings are voting for Hillary because they want to vote for historical purposes AGAIN – the first woman president regardless of her fitness to run and more seriously so, the lack of care about what she represents that is in contradiction to Catholic Law.
Any thinking and informed voter does not vote on ‘feelings’, history, or thinking it is some politician’s ‘turn’ to have a go at the White House. Any thinking Catholic would be turned off completely after seeing one of her few public speeches where she said she would never stop funding planned parenthood with OUR tax money. And how often do we have a candidate running with such clouds of deceit hanging over her head.
It is amazing how one’s Catholicism goes out the window when they decide to go out on their own and vote their heart or emotions or whatever drives them to the dark side. Basically, according to the Catholic voting outlines, you vote for the candidate that is more in line with the Church. If they are both in favor of something that doesn’t sit right with you like the abortion issue, you have to vote for the one that is the lessor of the ‘two evils’. We are literally in a state of war with ISIS and, up to now, the current president pretty much pretends it isn’t a problem while Christians and Jews suffer. Hillary is an extension of the last eight years. Trump IS the lessor of the ‘two evils’ by a long shot. In this election, not voting shouldn’t even be on the table for any caring American. We know what Hillary brings with her being in the ‘employ’ of Islam. Trump doesn’t owe anyone anything. It basically comes down to voting for an adamant, proud supporter of abortion at all stages or a man who hasn’t taken on that issue to such an extent. In this election, we have more of a chance with the unknown future. We have everything to lose with a Democratic win and four years more of the same.
“I hear that train a comin’
It’s rollin’ round the bend.
Gonna pick up Mrs. Clinton
And take her to the pen.
They’ll have her coronation
Make her cell block queen
Hillary for prison
two thousand and sixteen
They’ve got an orange pants suit
Hangin’ on the wall
And a cell for Bubba Willie
Just a little down the hall.
We’ll put ‘em in the big house
Lock them up inside.
Unless a whole lot of witnesses
Remember James McDougal
And 20 or 30 more
About to testify,
they found ‘em dead upon the floor.
Now they’re pilin’ up the bodies
Like they did back then
They want back in the White House
Here we go again.
Glue the china to the table
Nail the table to the floor
Lock up all the silver
‘fore they haul it out the door
White trash in the White House
Beats all I’ve ever seen.
Hillary for prison
two thousand and sixteen.”

Almost a year ago, we found a small kitten just sitting under the neighbor’s car. We remarked about the cute cat and they said it wasn’t their cat but had been sitting there for three days. It was a very chill little cat and very friendly in spite of being very hungry and thirsty. My husband made a tactical error in pointing out the cute kitten next door because next thing we knew, said kitten was in the house and named Buster Kitten! He remains here to this day registered at the vet’s office as belonging to us!
Although the cat is not a big eater, what he does ingest seems to give him great growing power as within four months, he was larger than our four-year old cat. He didn’t stop there. He isn’t fat but a huge bundle of muscle and last time we weighed him, he was 16 pounds 9 ounces. The other cat is tall, thin and weighs in at ‘only’
Someone asked me to take a picture of Buster Kitten next to something to show exactly how large he is in comparison. Sad to say, an historic dinosaur bit the dust in order to show this. Hey! You don’t believe we happened to have the last, full-sized dinosaur available for this picture op?
O most holy Confessor of the Lord, Benedict, father and guide of monks, intercede for our salvation and that of everyone.
Lord, God of armies, convert us.
Show us Thy Face and we shall be saved.
Let us pray.
Awaken, O Lord, in Thy Church the Spirit that our blessed FAther Saint Benedict obeyed, so that, filled with the same Spirit we may strive to love what he loved and practice what he taught.
Grant us the grace to persevere in the service of Thy will, so that our days may see the people of Thy servants grow in merit and number.
Through Christ Our Lord. Amen.
