Catholics and Politics

November 11, 2006

It concerns me that, according to the New York Times, 56% of the Catholics who voted in this Novembers elections voted in favor of the Democrat Candidates.   What I am concerned about is, where does the issue of Pro-Life fall in the list of priorities of America’s Catholic population? 

I was raised in a Catholic, Democrat home and fully appreciate what the Democratic party stands for (or stood for in the 50’s – 70’s), and how Woe VS Wade has effected the party deliniations.  Being a Catholic, before all other affiliations, I find it hard to understand how any Catholic can reconsile themselves with the Democratic party with it’s pro-choice stance.   It disturbs me to think that economics, gay rights or foreign policy outweighs the mass murder of millions of innocent babies. 

I have heard the term “Abomination of Desolation”, a term used in the bible that has no direct definition attributed to it, used in reference to the proliferation of crimes being commited against all children, including those murdered by abortion.  I can’t help but believe that this may not be so far off the mark.

I would like to challange all Catholics to examine their priorities before voting in the next election, or any election.  Where does human life place in your list of prioirities.? If you are going to belong to a faith, then live by it. 

Crooks and Thieves in City Government

July 20, 2006

I’m  sooooooooo pissed off.  To make a long story short, I moved to Lincoln Nebraska about a year and a half ago.  We did everything we were supposed to do.  Had a title search to make sure there weren’t any leins against the property, had an inspection yada yada yada.  All clear, or so they said.  Today I get a letter in the mail from the City of Lincoln stating that I owe them almost $400 for weeds they cleaned up in 2004. I WAS LIVING IN COLORADO IN 2004!!!!!.  They are also adding interest and said that if I don’t contact them in 14 days, they will start foreclosure!  WHAT THE HELL is that all about???  This is the first letter I have received!  Are they stupid?  The funny thing is, I just recently contested my tax evaluation which was raised over $17,000.  Is this their idea of punishing me?  Right now my taxes are approx. $3,000 a year.  For a 900 sq. ft piece of junk that currently needs over $30,000 in repairs.  We were seriously lied to by the previous owners and their sack of crap real estate agent aka father of the owner but that is another longer story.  I’M MAD MAD MAD!!!!! THIS PLACE IS SERIOUSLY GOING TO HELL IN A HAND BASKET! So,  what is your opinion on that?
