Cool is .....Better?

So is your life better with the Cool Incumbent?
Be honest now?

Cool doesn't feed the kids or pay the bills
Cool doesn't get you employed after graduation or pay the school loan.
Cool doesn't make retirement feasible or doable
Cool doesn't get you the prescription you need or the timely doctor appointment
Cool doesn't let you practice your faith without limitations.
Cool is not leadership

Thanks Pundit & Pundette (one of my favorite blogs)

The Pledge of Allegiance - A Look Back

Sometimes you have to stop... and look back to see your progress in life. To see if you've left the path and wandered onto the side of the road or worse off the beaten path away from your true destiny.

Many of the young may not remember Red Skelton or his show on TV. It was a comedy hour with many skits and a lot of good clean fun. While I remember seeing many of the recorded shows, I will always remember how Red use to end his show with a "....God Bless". Unheard of today.

Here he is explaining the Pledge of Allegiance, which I'm not sure if it's recited in schools anymore.
What a shame...maybe we've wandered off the beaten path a little too far.

Romney the Nominee...Ho Hum

So, since the exit of Santorum I've been shying away from any extensive viewing or listening of the election coverage. (pray for Bella)

I know what I have to do. I don't want another four years of Obama...definitely not. So I will hold my nose and pull the lever for Mr.Candidate Romney.

If Rubio is the VP ...the same. I read how he tongue lashed the Holy Father for his trip to Cuba.
Hello, there are fellow Catholics there, why wouldn't the Pope make a visit?

I'll continue to pray for strength and guidance. I pray daily for the elections.

Anyway here/s a good article on the subject.

Not Excited About Romney?   

This year’s GOP primary has been an odyssey filled with sound and fury. But, like elephants who never forget, millions of Republicans are muttering “haven’t we seen this movie before?” Conservatives who were looking for a solid alternative to Democrat Barack Obama are angry and disappointed. The party rank and file was opposed to the nomination of Mitt Romney, seeing him as a weathervane – willing to adopt any position or cause to suit his ambitions.

Does Science Refute Religion?

I fully intended to attend this recent event in Pasadena California at the famous campus of Caltech on March 27th, a few weeks ago. A Bastion of intellect and home to many world renown and leading

It was raining hard here and I wasn't feeling very well so I couldn't make it. But I was excited to find it online so I thought I'd share it.

What better place to explore the argument for and against Religion than Caltech. And who better to lead the arguments for religion than Christian Apologist and president of Kings College in New York, Dinesh D'Souza.

I've watched Dinesh through many online debates and attending a lecture over at Azusa Pacific University, not far from where I live. Dinesh has a unique style of debate tactics suited well for this type of debate. He doesn't argue solely using a biblical, Bible scripture based basis. He uses the arguments used from his opponents, using not only faith but reason, which is the best way to explain the Christian and reason.

Truly in the den of lions, Dinesh teams up with MIT physicist Ian Hutchinson against CALTECH COSMOLOGIST AND PHYSICIST Sean Carroll and Skeptic magazine publisher and science historian Michael Shermer (and Atheist) to debate the merits of science claim to have disproved religion.

A wonderful debate to share with as many friends, church groups, anyone that has lost a little hope that the world is turning away from God and how our leaders are promoting this. Dinesh and Ian in my opinion shake the foundation of this Institution  and hopefully planted a few seeds of truth in the minds of these students in attendence. Not to sway them from exploring science but to open their minds to seek the truth in all they discover. It will surely lead them to God.

I'm still a Santorum Supporter

Well Romney did win as was projected. That doesn't mean I'm going to turn my vote for him. Living here on the West Coast, my vote won't come until June and I will be a guaranteed vote for Santorum.

I still don't trust Romney and I believe he is going to make a dash to the center if he gets the nomination. And what's more I believe he will even lean a little to the left of center if he makes it to the White House.

Anyway, I still praying that Santorum will make it to the convention where he can make his delegate bid.

American Catholic has the post primary blog on the details:
