    “There is nothing wrong with your television set. Do not attempt to adjust the picture. We are controlling transmission…” Even Pelosi is in favor of it – this is the Outer Limits!

  2. PA mom says:

    This is the moment when some number of people will recognize that their support has been blind. It will not be Kerry’s lineage among the first shot down; it will not be Obama’s, Pelosi’s or Clinton’s privileged children.
    It will not be successful, from our Country’s viewpoint, and they will not be blind to that either. Not long term.
    I hope more of them will be hearing the Pope’s courageous stand for peace and start seeing the wisdom of the Gospel.

    Hey Father Z. ! This Syrian conundrum might prove the perfect moment to try out that Air Force missile you wrote of earlier which successfully defeated electronic targets with little to no collateral damage, i.e. the Counter-electronics High-powered Microwave Advanced Missile Project (CHAMP).

    Knock out those Syrian iPods! Blow-out their Kindles.

    Just a thought.

    [An attack on innocent Kindles? Hey! If liberals see guns as being in themselves evil (especially if they are black and scary looking) because – as we all know, guns sometimes all by themselves start to shoot people – then surely Kindles, which can have children’s books on them, will be judged to be in themselves innocent. Stop the attacks on innocent Kindles! I am not so sure about iPods.]

    The hypocrisy of the left never ceases to amaze me.

    The Rain, The Park, & Other Things (The Flower Girl)

  6. Facta Non Verba says:

    Where is the anti-war left? Plus, we hear nothing but cricket noise out of the president’s friends in Hollywood.

  7. The Sicilian Woman says:

    Facta Non Verba,
    A conservative on Twitter, @JohnEkdahl, wrote a perfect, scathing web article about the now-silent, anti-war left.


    Although Ed Asner has spoken up a bit (foul language warning):


    The left’s mindset is, apparently, that racism occurs only when you speak out against a black person, not when you vote or otherwise support a person only or largely because of his skin color.

  8. Siculum says:

    Hey. “The Sicilian Woman.” Nice username.

  9. Bosco says:

    @John F Kennedy,
    I’m sure I’ll be sneered at, but I actually kinda liked that song by the Cowsills (‘Hair’ was better though).
    However my grooviest favourite from that summer of ’67 was ‘Lazy Day’ by Spanky and Our Gang.
    Thanks for the memory, JFK!

  10. Legisperitus says:


    “Hair” was indeed better. “The Rain, the Park” was a “Good Vibrations” knockoff.

    The Sicilian Woman:

    They left out the Dixie Chicks, didn’t they?

  11. John F. Kennedy says:

    It is a good song.

  12. wmeyer says:

    Sorry, Fr. Z, but Kindles could contain really evil matter, such as criticism of Dear Leader, so of course, must be destroyed.

  13. The Masked Chicken says:

    Obama is no John F. Kindle-dy.

    The Chicken

  14. Bosco says:

    The Cowsills were a Partridge Family knockoff and that’s who they emulated.

    I beg to differ with you as to any similarity in style between The Cowsills “The Rain, The Park, & Other Things” and the Beachboys masterpiece “Good Vibrations”.

    Peace man (or woman)!

    Bosco, I had an amazing Cowsills experience! About two years ago I was at a Connecticut casino where they often have free shows in a venue called “The Wolf Den”, that is an open stage in the round, circled by slot machines. My Mom was playing. I was standing near her, and all of a sudden I heard “give me a head with hair, long beautiful hair, shinin, gleamin, streamin, flaxen, waxen…” and was SHOCKED to realize the Cowsills were playing. It was so cool. They are Rhode Islanders so they are basically local, but you never saw them play locally. The casinos are like that. You never know who you’ll just fall across. Anyway it was great. They are actually very talented.
    I have actually given this alot of thought over the years. What is my all-time favorite song, if I had to pick one. Really, I have actually pondered this many times, in case I should be asked! My conclusion: Get Together – The Youngbloods. I hear it, I’m ten years old again. The lyrics, the melody, the guitar, the percussion…I’m sure we all have those songs.

  16. The Sicilian Woman says:

    Siculum: Grazie!

    Legisperitus: I forgot about them, too. They’ve been kind of (mercifully) quiet lately, haven’t they? Or perhaps it’s because I am largely divorced from pop culture.

  17. Bosco says:

    I remember the Wee Five version of ‘Get Together’. The Youngbloods version was after I peaked 8-).

    My mother has my collection of old 45s most of which were one-hit wonders. All I need is something to play them on.
