Pope Says the Wealthy Feast on What Belongs to Us All

Sunday was World Day of the Poor… The Pope hosted 6,000 poor people for mass and then invited 1,500 indigent people to join him for lunch. So I guess the Pope thinks he’s doing his part to redistribute the billions of wealth he sits on. Even the wealthy Vatican apparently needs a special day to do anything for those less fortunate. I wonder how they made the determination that everyone of the participants were indeed needy? Did they vent each and every one of them? Were they required to submit some kind of financial statement to prove they were poor?  Something tells me that they used the honor system when allowing people in by just claiming to be poor. Actually…

Michael Moore and The Pope

Michael Moore says he met with the Pope and the Pope told him that capitalism is a sin… Talk about a hypocrite… The Pope sits on his golden throne surrounded by a massive fortune and he thinks having a divide between the rich and the poor is a sin. The Catholic Church is no better than most charities on the planet, they take in huge sums of money and then use the majority of it to make a few individuals wealthy and super comfortable and when they throw pennies on the dollar at whatever cause they support they start patting themselves on the back for a job well done. The Pope also told Moore to keep making movies… Somehow I…

Who Is Andrew Gillum?

Who is Andrew Gillum and how has he gotten to the point he is in now? We all have heard the basics… born into a working poor family. He was the first in his family to graduate from collage. Speaking of college, he majored in political science and got himself elected to the Tallahassee City Council at the age of 23 before he even finished his college education. He’s never really worked for a living and all of his mentors have been liberal college professors and career politicians who, in my opinion, have indoctrinated him to believe that the government is the answer to all social and economic woes. I believe that Andrew Gillum vaulted to the top spot of…

Mob Invasion

The following is an excerpt from a USA Today story published today about a new mob of migrants gathering at the Guatemala border with eyes at invading the Southern boarder of the U.S.   “In the same plaza, migrants sprawled shoulder to shoulder on the cement floor, sleeping, smoking cigarettes given to them by passersby, or waiting for their cellphones to charge. Some of the young men called out, asking for money from anyone who walked past. “We are hungry. Can you please lend a hand?” they said.”   Did you catch that? Some of them are begging for help just to eat and yet they apparently own cell phones. What a joke… the more I hear about these migrant…

Supreme Court Nomination Debacle

Yesterday the Senate Sub Committee did its due diligence and allowed Dr. Christine Ford to testify during the nomination process. They heard a compelling story about a young girl being traumatized by an older boy at a house party where underage drinking was taking place. The real question that we should be asking ourselves today is did her testimony provide any concrete prof that the person she remembers assaulting her was without any doubt a young Brett Kavanagh. No matter which side you believe we do have to remember that all of this happened decades ago and we all have things in our past that we may not particularly be proud of, but most often use them to learn to…

Desperation Mounting

It’s unreal the lengths the left will go to in an attempt to unseat President Trump. The current attack is based on an opinion piece that was published in the New York Times and is being reported as fact by every left leaning news media outlet. This should open the eyes of those who believe in the job our elected president is doing and convince them that there are powers to be in this country that are desperate to get Trump out of office. I pray that all this talk by the media of a shift of power in the US House and Senate on election day 2018 is just that… all wishful thinking on their part like it was…

Election Interference

There is a force in place to influence our election process and it isn’t the Russians… it comes from the left who have begun a comprehensive effort to squash conservatives and conservative view points on social media as fake news.  Under their definition of fake news anything conservative is and anything promoting the left leaning Democrats is not. Our democracy is under attack from within and if allowed to progress we’ll end up with Bernie Sanders in the White House and an economy that makes Venezuela look like boom town.

Arena Football

For 25 years I was a huge Arena Football, Orlando Predator fan… then in 2016 the ownership of the team decided to just call it quits. Since then I’ve only had a passing interest in what is happening with the league. 2017 they only fielded four teams, two brand new teams (both owned by the same person) and two teams that were still hanging on. They played a 12 game schedule, but knowing that all four teams would make the playoffs because you need at least an even number of teams to create a competition bracket. Turns out that the two older mature teams dominated and battled it out in the championship game as was expected. 2018 saw one of…

Florida Democrats for Governor

Some bids for political office have merit… other do not. A couple of the Democrats running for the right to be on the November ballot as a candidate for the Florida Governor race come to mind as severely unqualified; The first is Gwen Graham… I guess if your father was once a State Senator and Florida governor that you must automatically have what it takes to be governor. She does have a two year stint as a US House Representative, but decided not to run for reelection when the district she was a shoe in for the 2014 election was redrawn and was going to be a challenge to win in 2016. She was a housewife and mother for 13…

Dirty Political Season

You expect the liberals to use the 23% consumption tax associated with the Fair Tax Plan, HR 25, as a talking point to smear a conservative opponent; However this particular ignorant tactic is now being used by one conservative Republican to smear another conservative Republican in the Florida Governor Primary. One of the Political Action Committees supporting Adam Putman is running ads accusing Ron Desantis of voting to add 23% to the price of everything by cosponsoring House Bill 25, H.R. 25 or The Fair Tax Plan. This is why I have a problem with PAC ads that only give you a small piece of information and use it to make the opposition look bad. It is true that the…
