|If You’re Going to Grow a Beard, Son…Then Freak’n Grow a Beard!||So This is What a Sequester Looks Like, Huh?|
A place where any item of interest to our readers can be linked and not be off topic.
There is much going on and news abounds, such as the Pope’s retirement and the manufactured “sequester” crisis.
I’ll start it off with a few things that didn’t fit on any other thread and didn’t really have the time to create separate posts that would do the topics justice.
First off, since the Vatican is in the news, yesterday (27 Feb) was St. Possenti Day:
The St. Gabriel Possenti Society promotes the public recognition of St. Gabriel Possenti, including his Vatican designation as Patron Saint of Handgunners.
St. Gabriel Possenti was a Catholic seminarian whose marksmanship and proficiency with handguns single-handedly saved the village of Isola, Italy from a band of 20 terrorists in 1860.
The Possenti Society offers a variety of materials related to St. Gabriel Possenti and a biblical understanding of self-defense.
Another topic I have been studying is whether a Constitutional Convention should be considered. I haven’t examined the issue to my satisfaction, but I have done some reading and found some with firm opinions. One of those is Glenn Reynolds and I read this interesting post the other day citing the good Professor at Bob Owens blog, “…if that’s what you believe, then all of this talk of revolution suddenly doesn’t seem so crazy, it seems almost mandatory.” A short yet informative post which includes a link to Prof. Reynolds view on a ConCon, but the link that really blew me away in this post was an excerpt from a book by Matt Bracken that foretells the terrifying prospects of a ConCon with so many lawless citizens in this country.
I highly recommend reading this excerpt from Foreign Enemies and traitors.
“Tell me something, Doug. You’re obviously a smart guy. I’ve been out of the country for seven years. What the hell happened to America? I always thought Americans would fight to keep their freedom. What happened? How could Americans just roll over and give up their rights?”
“Well, we didn’t just ‘give up’ our rights. It wasn’t like that. Not at all. It’s more like they were stolen in broad daylight, at the constitutional convention.”
There is much more out there that is interesting to me and I’m certain to our readers, as well.
