Hey, I Like Her!

by Steve Ray on August 29, 2008

McCain has chosen his running mate for Vice President. Sarah Palin is young, pro-life, a maverick and quite a woman. She has five kids. The fifth has down syndrome, which she knew before birth, but she said ”When I look down at him I see perfection!”

Obama didn’t pick a woman but an old Washington insider guy. Obama picked the old white guy. This is great. Obama wants us to think HE is the maverick for change in Washington, but he chose a Washington insider for his Democratic running mate. It is McCain who has chosen a running mate from as far as Washington as you can get – from the backwoods of Alaska!

Sarah is strongly pro-life and belongs to Feminists for Life. She opposes same-sex marriage. She has a better than 80% approval rating as governor of Alaska. She fought corruption and won – causing crooks in Alaska to resign.

She is good looking too, having come in 2nd in the Miss Alaska contest. She puts a good face on the Republican party standing next to McCain. She is an outdoors women who used to hunt moose with her dad at 3 AM before going to school, has an Eskimo self-employed husband (world champion snowmobiler), is a Christian with a son being to Iraq in September.

I like her. She will offset McCain’s age. You can read all about her on Wikipedia here. For Fideli’s article “The Right Choice for Catholics, click here.

Knockout! Bishops vs. Pelosi

by Steve Ray on August 26, 2008

The Speaker of the House, Nancy Pelosi, made an utter fool of herself on Meet the Press last Sunday. She stepped into a ring without being prepared, with the wrong uniform, and with blinders on her already blind eyes. She claims to be Catholic but proves to be nothing of the sort.

I applaud the bishops who have immediately stepped into the ring for the knock out punch. You can read their letters to Nancy Pelosi on the following links.

Click here to read the Zenit article.

Cardinal Egan of New York’s POWERFUL and even sarcastic statements (bravo)! Here.

Archbishop Chaput‘s statements from Denver, the city of the Democratic Convention. Here.

Archbishop Wuerl‘s comments from Washington DC — brilliant! Here.

To write to Pelosi, these are her fax numbers (415-861-1670; 202-225-4188). I suggest she resign now that she has proved her ignorance and utter lack of qualification to lead the House of Representatives and the United States of America. She is an embarrassment of monumental proportions!

Choice of Biden for VP Re-opens Catholic Wound

August 23, 2008

So, Barak Hussein Obama finally chose his Vice President–”Catholic” pro-abortionist Senator Joe Biden. These are my initial thoughts. First, this will propel pro-abort “Catholic” politicians right into the spotlight demanding bishops unite and do their job! Second, it shows that Obama is NOT for change, “a new America.” Biden is an entrenched Washington insider–a Washington [...]

Should Children Watch a Child Being Born?

August 20, 2008

Due to a power outage, only one paramedic responded to the call. The house was very, very dark, so the paramedic asked Katelyn, a 3-year-old girl, to hold a flashlight high over her mommy so he could see while he helped deliver the baby. Very diligently, Katelyn did as she was asked. Heidi pushed and [...]
