If Obama's "First Time" ad makes you hurl, check out Steven Crowder's parody.

Quote of the Day.

From WEAU.com comes my favorite quote concerning the Presidential election.

"This is a battleground state. They're trying to win it. I just need some limburger cheese."


A Dunce Cap? Really?

The photo below is a screenshot from "The Obama 2012 campaign's official home on Tumblr".

Really Classy, right?

It's not even quality photoshopping either.

I can't recall any other "official" representative of a Presidential campaign ever putting their opponent in a dunce cap. Is this what you call taking the high road?

I hope you Obama supporters are proud.

Catholic Teaching on "Big Government".

From a recent email from CatholicVote.org.

Dear Friend of CV, The VP debate tonight features two people who profess the Catholic faith.

This will surely put the Catholic Church's teaching in the spotlight.

The CatholicVote.org Education Fund has created many videos explaining the Church's teachings on life, family and religious liberty.

And we'll continue on this important mission.

But tonight' s debate will likely also bring up a discussion on the morality of budgets, how to reduce the national debt, and what role government plays in combating poverty.

Catholics should discover what the Church has to say about these issues. And we certainly can't count on the media to accurately describe the richness of Church teaching on these matters.

That's why today we're launching our new video called: “Charity and Responsibility.”

Yoko Ono awards Lady Gaga LennonOno Grant for Peace.


Setting aside her tin-foil hat and replacing it with a black fedora, Yoko Ono presented the LennonOno Grant for Peace to Lady Gaga in Reykjavik, Iceland just days after Gaga gagged and vomited onstage in Barcelona.

According to an article published at the Huffington Post, Yoko said that "Lady Gaga is a power singer and songwriter that has used her strong position to correct prejudice."

I know I, for one, feel so much safer.

3 1/2 Time-Outs Tuesday....The Savage Chickens Edition.

I haven't done a 3 1/2 Time Outs Tuesday in quite a long time - today seems like a good day to get back into the swing of things.

LarryD is calling his 3 1/2 T.O.T. for this week The Savage Chickens Edition. He posted a link to website called  Savage Chickens  , along with some pretty funny cartoons found on there.

Being lazier than I should be, I decided to follow Larry's lead and post cartoons from the site as well.

U.S.: Catholic Consensus on Obama Grows.

As if this election year wasn't depressing enough, we have this from lastampa.it :  

"A survey by Pew Research Center reveals that Catholic support for Obama has risen since last June, from 49% to 54%, while Romney is stuck at 39%"

What is wrong with Catholics in this country? In so many area's Obama's policies are diametrically opposed to the teachings of the Church. Obama's views on abortion and same-sex "marriage" are the most obvious but Obama doesn't even believe in the simple notion of subsidiarity , which is one of the basic principles of Catholic social teaching.

Hopefully, before the election  more Catholics will heed the words of Bishop Thomas John Paprocki of Springfield, Illinois when he said  that voting for a candidate who promotes actions or behaviors that are “intrinsically evil and gravely sinful” makes a voter “morally complicit” and places the eternal salvation of his or her soul in “serious jeopardy.”

Unfortunately, the Republican candidate for POTUS, Mitt Romney isn't the perfect candidate, but he is far and away preferable to the current President.

Even if Obama loses, the number of people in this country who think he's the ideal choice is disturbing. This country is currently in self-destruct mode and I'm not at all certain that this situation can be turned around.
