Earthquake that rocked Italy made me think
After I read the news about the 6.2 magnitude earthquake that leveled Italy, it started to make me think. At first, I didn’t think that much about what I’m about to tell you. Then, the more I though about it, the more it blew my mind.
Around 1917, all of my grandparents immigrated to the United States from Italy, and from a place that is very close to where the earthquake occurred. If not for immigration, I’d still be in Italy, not that I would mind it. But when a massive earthquake shakes the country, where I could be living this very day, I darned well do mind it.
It’s great to be alive. Don’t ever take this for granted.
I have to give a thumps up to the Good Old USA !
Will there be Women Deacons in the Catholic Church?
When a leader is approached with a new idea, and is not interested, the most popular brush off is to say, “I’ll consider it.”
I’ll consider climbing Mt. Everest next Monday. Will I really do it? Certainly not! I’m not going to kill myself.
Does this mean that the Catholic Church will ordain women deacons in the near future? Don’t count on it. This argument has been going on for at least 100 years. Pope Francis has done more than his predecessors, by considering it. But this is a far as it will go.
A deacon is one rank below a priest. They can do everything a priest can do, except, say mass and hear confession.
The Catholic Church is holding on to something that should be let go. That is, Tradition. The Pope, Bishops and Cardinals, point blank, don’t want women in the clergy. This argument will continue for the next 100 years and will only result in one thing – Pissing more women off.
Some of the people you see on the freeway ramp during rush hour, holding up the sign, “I will work for food” drive to work in Cadillac’s and Mercedes Benz’s. They park far away from their work area so no one will see them.
One day, a few years ago, I stopped and said to one of them, “I have some work for you if you’re interested. But we have to go now.” He said, “No, I can’t leave now. It’s rush hour.”
There’s good money in begging people for money on a street corner. Some of these guys make from $10 to $20 an hour. That’s $20,000 to $40,000 a year in tax-free income. Some of these guys work overtime. There’s no telling how much they make a year. Some of them are members of Country Clubs. The guys who do this are really good at it. I guess you could say that they’re professionals.
But let’s be realistic. Who wants to be a professional beggar?

Every time there is a question of sexual harassment on the job, it’s always the employer whose neck is on the chopping block. In the end, it’s always the boss’s fault. Sometimes, it’s the employee’s fault. What if a Company hires a devious woman or man who tries to use sex to get what he or she wants? Let’s explore the possibilities.
Here is the exact definition of sexual harassment from the Equal Opportunity Employment Commission:
Requests for Sexual Favors
This is a little vague, don’t you think? How do we know that the employee doesn’t say something to the employer, such as, “If you give me a big raise, I’ll go to bed with you?” We don’t. But the pissed off employee can turn in the boss for sexual harassment if he or she doesn’t get the raise. And as usual, it’s the employee’s neck.
Other verbal or physical conduct of a Sexual Nature
Suppose a man has a sexy boss, and wants special job privileges. If the man turns in the boss for sexual harassment because she denies those special privileges, her goose is cooked, no matter what the situation. How do we know the guy didn’t grab her tits?
Term or condition of the individual’s employment
Suppose an employer is in the modeling business. He wants to hire a model who is hot stuff, and in big demand. This model can easily imply, Hey pal, you need me more than I need you. What’s it worth to you? In this case, the boss could be the target of a set up.
On the other hand, suppose a model is just starting out, and really wants the job to further his or her career. The boss really doesn’t want to take a chance with an unknown. In this case, the model could imply, Hire me, and I’ll do all those good things you like, between the sheets. The boss says, “No dice!”
You get the point? Sometimes it’s not the boss’s fault, but it’s always the boss’s ass.
No there is not a connection between the two. These are two mutually exclusive groups of people. But the way people are handling these two groups are very much the same. There are two wars going on at the same time.
The RACIAL war is ALL WRONG
If you want to deny that there is a racial war going on, you’d better wake up. It’s as real as it has ever been. And the sad part is, IT’S ALL WRONG.
This racial war must stop, and stop immediately. It must stop on both sides. There is one, and only one reason it must stop, and it is a very good reason. The reason has nothing to do with who Afro Americans are. They are people, just like everyone who came from his or her mother’s womb. They put their pants on one leg at a time. This is the reason it must stop.
They were born that way. It was not by choice. You racist ass holes, back off.
The GAY war is NOT RIGHT, but NOT NECESSARILY WRONG
This is a different matter entirely. No one is born gay. Of course, gay activists will tell you some BS sob story, such as, “Well, they can’t help the way they are.”
This is BS. If a guy is gay, it’s because he wants to be. No one twisted his arm. No one held a gun to his head. It’s all a mental thing. Maybe he’s struck out with women, and wants to try something new. Or maybe he is proof of an old saying, If you can’t hold a job, change your line of work.
They were not born that way. It was by choice. You gay haters, also back off.
I tell it like it is, but I’m fair. These people should also not be the target of discrimination, for one reason. If you discriminate against gays, you are trying to take away the greatest privilege we have,
Freedom of Choice
But let’s not get carried away. Allowing them to marry each other is a bit much, don’t you think?
How the Catholic Church Deals with Gay Priests
It’s very simple. The Bishop just sends the priest on a long trip. This long trip is called a sabbatical. This is the fancy term that the Catholic Church uses. Other descriptions for a sabbatical are, furlough, leave of absence, time off and break. To simplify matters, the Bishop sends the priest away, on one condition. He never comes back. The result is – problem solved.
This is not speculation. All of this is true. This is the way the Catholic Church deals with homosexual priests – SWEEP IT UNDER THE RUG. Is this disgusting? You bet it is. I don’t think Pope Francis knows what’s going on in the Western Hemisphere. I do think Pope John Paul II knew, but he didn’t care. As long as he was in front of a camera, he was happy.
How a Southern Diocese Dealt with Two Homosexual Priests
This particular diocese, which shall remain nameless, dealt with two homosexual priests very differently.
The first priest was caught visiting mental hospitals, and taking advantage of vulnerable male patients. He was also caught in the act of molesting male members of his church many times. His victims were either naive people, or children. He was an elderly man, who was on the brink of retirement. The diocese just sent him to another town in the State where the diocese is located, for an early retirement. The priest has never been seen or heard from since.
The second priest was dealt with in a little more dramatic fashion, but discretely. This was a younger man who showed potential. The diocese, however, wanted to get his rear end out of town in order to avoid any embarrassment which may have occurred. Therefore, they sent him to another country as a missionary.
Eventually, this younger priest became an Archbishop, but no one knows what diocese he represents. It could be anywhere is the world. His title may even be bogus. He’s like a king without a country. He does, however, return home once a year, and is a frequent guest on a local radio talk show.
The first priest was shipped away to rot. The second priest was sent away to prosper. If you think this makes me happy and overjoyed, you’re wrong. I don’t like the way the Catholic Church handles this any more than the next person. But let’s be realistic. In a profession that forbids sex and marriage, it is more likely to attract fruit cakes.
This is how the Catholic Church handled these two homosexual priests. Go figure.
To all those moonlighting
Moonlighting is a pretty good way to pass the time, and make extra money at the same time. The problem is, moonlighters sometimes forget where they are.
If you work at McDonalds during the day, and as a dispatch for 911 at night, don’t say to a caller, “Hey Man! You need to try the Chicken Select Tenders. They’re back and better than ever.“
Did you know that Russia is larger than the planet Pluto? Do you find that interesting? Did you ever wonder?
Do you really GIVE A DAMN?
