Life of the Nation

Mar 1 Super Tue – MA Primary election
We all need to affect the public debate on the role of Government (to protect our Rights) by informing ourselves and voting this Tuesday. The apparent Democratic presidential nominee, Hillary Clinton, simply cannot be allowed to appoint the next 2-4 Supreme Court Justices because her appointees will turn the Court into a De-Facto ruling elite, destroying the our God-given inalienable rights and replacing them with State-given rights subject to political correctness and whim. Therefore I recommend that all concerned people;
1. Vote in the Republican Primary This Tuesday
2. Vote for the Republican Nominee in November

For the first step I recommend that you become informed by reading the candidates own political Web sites, not by watching the Television News. I also think a case can be made for each of the Republican nominees, which is why I will support the Republican Nominee next November, but that the case for each cannot be made equally. To that I end recommend the Nominees in order, from my highest and first recommendation to by lowest and last, but still as recommendation.
1. Ted Cruz, the most conservative, consistent defender of Rights, and antagonist to Government growth. Extremely fair – probably why he is so hated.
2. Dr. Ben Carson, a true gentleman and insightful man who would make an excellent president. Read his policy statements on his Web Site! Watch him in individual C-Span interviews!
3. Marco Rubio, a true friend of the unborn who attempted to resolve our immigration problem back in 2013 and is paying the price for that support now
4. John Kasich, a good man who would allow Obamacare to stay as the Law of the Land
5. Donald Trump, a CEO who if he surrounds himself with Good people, (e.g. the other candidates), could be a good president. He deserves credit for making this Presidential primary a debate – exciting. But he has no clear polices, thinks Planned Parenthood does ‘good’ but is against their abortion business and would apparently ‘negotiate’ a single-payer government run Socialized medicine version of Obama-Care.

On the Local Level – Republican ‘reformers’ should be preferred over any candidate endorsed by Charlie Baker / Karen Polito.

Worcester County Republican State Committee recommendations, 'the reformers';
Christopher Pinto, Bonnie Johnson (Trump Supporter), James Knowlton and Carol Claros.
Since Walton and Spillane are endorsed by Baker, they are part of the effort to rid MA Republicans of conservatives

Grant me, O Lord, good digestion,
and also something to digest.

Grant me a healthy body, and the
necessary good humor to maintain it.

Grant me a simple soul that knows
to treasure all that is good and that
doesn’t frighten easily at the sight of evil, but
rather finds the means
to put things back in their place.

Give me a soul that knows not boredom,
grumblings, sighs and laments,
nor excess of stress, because of that
obstructing thing called “I”.

Grant me, O Lord, a sense of good humor.
Allow me the grace to be able to take a joke
to discover in life a bit of joy, and
to be able to share it with others. Amen.

Apr 4 Mon 10am - Join Bishop McManus and students from our Catholic schools for the annual Mass for Life on the Feast of the Annunciation of the Lord, Monday, April 4, 2016 at 10:00 a.m. at the Cathedral of St. Paul, 38 High St. Worcester. All are welcome!

The mantra in the press and at hearings is that doctor-prescribed suicide is working so well in Oregon that we should adopt it. The 2015 report from the Oregon Department of Public Health came out last week. ...the numbers are beginning to increase exponentially and the percentage of the people using it who are dependent on the government for health care is increasing rapidly. Yes, D-P is working in Oregon, just the way the death lobby had planned.

This is an excellent analysis of the numbers by the Heritage Foundation.

God Bless America
