Today’s Gospel Message, from Luke 18: 1-8, last 4 verses reproduced here:
For a long time the judge was unwilling, but eventually he thought, ‘While it is true that I neither fear God nor respect any human being, because this widow keeps bothering me I shall deliver a just decision for her lest she finally come and strike me.'”
The Lord said, “Pay attention to what the dishonest judge says. Will not God then secure the rights of his chosen ones who call out to him day and night? Will he be slow to answer them? I tell you, he will see to it that justice is done for them speedily. But when the Son of Man comes, will he find faith on earth?”
We’re getting close, America. As Luke’s Gospel says, the Just God will not hesitate to bring justice to those who ask him for it, so let us ask like our very lives and perhaps even our souls depend on it, because they probably do! And whatever happens, let us remain faithful ’til the end, so that he will not regret the blessings and justice he’s granted us already.
Photo: “Smackdown Jesus” Mosaic from the dome of the National Shrine in Washington, DC. At least, that’s the name ZMalfoy gave it, and she’s the one who showed it to me as I took the picture back in 2011 or so. Zoph, if you’re reading, please correct me if I got that wrong.
Personal Note: It’s the Sunday after Crucible in San Diego for Echo Company, and we have not been informed that we should change our plans to fly out for graduation next week. That means that Noah is now an actual grunt, officially, and the DIs will be obligated to take it easier on him and his buddies who climbed the mountain now, and they will never again hear the word ‘recruit’ shouted at them. At least, I hope that’s the way it went. Hoo-Rah!
With only three weeks until Last-Chance-Day, Mike’s thermonuclear rant exactly mirrors my own feelings. Cover the kids’ ears. Hide Gramma. This ain’t for the squeemish. Just the sheer number of hyphens in the headline might scare people.

I generally avoid discussing politics. I don’t believe in human saviors. I do; however, believe in sticking together.
If the Republicans pull a stunt, and Trump runs third party, fantastic.
It’s winner-take-fucking-all. Either he gets in the Captain’s Chair and turns the ship around, or he burns the motherfucking house down on his way out.
The Republican Party, remember them?
They were the ones that were going to end illegal immigration and eviscerate CommieCare™. So for all you, “non-socialist“, “non-politically-correct” folks out there, why would you continue to not only reward failure, but continue to show up, and give support to the party that betrays you time, after time, after time?
You’re like a bunch of bitchy battered spouses. Continue reading
Well, fictionally speaking, anyway. I’m posting this video because Adrienne demanded something more cheerful than the Dwarves of Erebor hitchhiking home because Hillary forced them to get a solar powered SUV (Shire Utility Vehicle) which broke down east of Kalispell. This is from BYUTV’s Studio C, and is fairly family friendly except that 12 or 13 people die in it.
Minus the swords. Because, you know, they’ll be illegal. One guess who the dragon (not pictured) represents in the real world.
This is why we lose. We do it to ourselves. Will we ever learn?
As Ann Coulter pointed out yesterday, we need to expect a thousand Anita Hills to come forward in the next few weeks. The casting calls have been going on for over a year. Why do you think that is?
Is it any surprise that Michelle Obama is “shaken to her core” about new allegations against Trump?
If you insist on only believing women, like Stacy McCain is suddenly doing, ironically, then please consider listening to Ann Coulter. She’s not fooled by the words being distorted and used against Donald Trump just weeks before the biggest election of our lives. Neither should you.
WTF is wrong with conservatives??? We don’t deserve to win at Bingo, much less to win the contest to lead the Free World! This is truly the most spectacular display of retardedness I have ever witnessed. If we lose this election, and Hillary is replaced, eventually, by Joe Biden, the man who first legitimized the paid whore Anita Hill, the irony will be supreme. And it will not be lost on President Biden.
