“Dear Taliban….”

Yes, it’s the first full day of Spring.  Birds are chirping, flowers are rising, grass is greening, trees are budding, candidates are bloviating, liberals are obfustcating, and presidents are undermining.

    The constitutional check on executive misbehavior is impeachment by the House, and trial by the Senate. Anyone see that as even a slight possibility? I didn’t think so.

    He’s trampled the 1st Amendment, but Congress has for decades trampled the 10th. Can the trampling of the 22nd be far behind?

    The founding fathers were very bright guys who saw checks and balances as the best means of holding off government tyranny. Even so, they knew it was only a matter of time until the government would throw off its shackles, and move inevitably toward tyranny.

    The Church can be a thorn in Obama’s side, and he knows it. Neutralizing the Church has to be a priority high on his list. I pray he has miscalculated in thinking he can do it now….

    Deo juvente, the serial killer Taliban of Toulouse is upon to be caught by the french special forces. Thanks God.

    Leave it to him to not be able to distinguish between an ordinary bishop and a cardinal.

  4. irishgirl says:

    This cartoon is about as bad as the one published during the Jerry Sandusky scandal at Penn State, where it showed a bishop ‘passing off’ a child [like a football] to a football coach.
    Another reason why Obama HAS to be defeated this November!

    Remember that tomorrow, noon local time, is the “Stand Up For Religious Freedom” rally. I plan to attend the one in St. Paul.

  6. Facta Non Verba says:

    Correction to my comment above: the Stand up for Religious Freedom rally is on FRIDAY (not tomorrow) in cities across the country, at noon local time.

  7. Supertradmum says:

    Why is anyone not paying attention to the actions of this man? The original writers of the Constitution, whether Masons or Deists, look like rational saints compared to POTUS….

  8. wmeyer says:

    I think lots of us are paying attention, Supertradmum, but the ones with the legal authority to act are in Congress. I am baffled by the apparently complete unwillingness of Congress to face the reality that with each new violation of the Constitution by O, they are complicit in their failure to act.

  9. The Cobbler says:

    Supertradmum, wmeyer,

    Obviously Congress is trying to develop a new source of clean energy involving the US’s founding fathers.

  10. Clinton says:

    How can it be that the bishop appears so surprised?

  11. catholicmidwest says:

    Because Clinton, most of the bishops and half the rest of the country were totally suckered by this president and the Democrat party, and many of them still don’t have the common sense and cajones to admit it. The progressives have gotten so bold and so extreme that they feel they are big enough to go it without the Church, after having used her like a cheap floozie for decades, and so they offend her openly with their filth because they think they can. It shows where they think power comes from; in fact, it shows where they think power has always come from. The Church has been duped.

    The progressives in this country are NOT friends of the Church, and haven’t been for a great long time. Catholics, however, have been very slow on the uptake. Catholics should be neither bought-and-paid-for progressives or conservatives; they should be independents, viewing the culture with the eyes of the Church, rather than the other way around. God is the ultimate ruler worthy of our allegiance; not man.

  12. Laura98 says:

    However, lots of people aren’t paying attention, unfortunately. Good friends of mine, catholic (small “c”) don’t see any problem at all with the HHS mandate, and are big Obama supporters. My own husband, a Lutheran, doesn’t see any religious infringement at all with this mandate, thinks the Church needs to “get with the times.” *sigh* (Yes, prayers would be appreciated.) Many other friends and acquaintances of mine, aren’t even interested in the subject and can’t even be bothered to vote… Sometimes I despair. Yet, I know it’s all in Our Lord’s hands, and I continue to pray.

  13. wmeyer says:

    The great irony is that O was pretty open about what he wished to do to the country before half of the Catholics voted for him. Those with eyes to see and ears to hear were apparently not using them, but believing instead what they wished he had said.
