A Hearty "Thank You!" to the USDA

A weekend shopping trip to my local Sams Club and Walmart was my first since the onset of the Chinese Virus. As I gazed upon row after row of empty shelves that formerly held toilet paper, eggs, pizzas and hand sanitizer, I was reminded of why I live in such a great country. 

There are many unsung heroes in the present health crisis in which we find ourselves intimately involved. Medical professionals, researchers, first responders, and many others on the front line all deserve a round of applause for their untiring efforts to ensure the safety of the citizens of this great country (though I am sure they'd rather have a solid two weeks off about now). However, no one entity deserves a wider round of applause than our very own USDAa group of true, unsung heroes, who work tirelessly and in broad daylight so all the world takes notice of them. 

No, no. Not this USDA, that does its work largely behind the scenes. Then of whom I am talking?

Why... The United Society of Dumb Asses, of course. 

You've no doubt seen the members of the USDA first hand at your local stores as:

  • they rush to grab that cart in the parking lot from the elderly couple on Social Security who are just doing their monthly shopping; 
  • you experience their frenzied clubbing of other shoppers to get to the toilet paper aisle to ensure their own personal ass-hygiene remains unaffected (for an upper respiratory malady, no less);
  • you cringe as they flash-mob the egg cooler to claw to that last Medium Grade A carton with 3 broken eggs;
  • finally, you see (although the terror of it will live with you for decades to come), whilst clutching your loved ones tightly to your chest, the feral, frenzied look of their blood red eyes as they fight each other to get to that last 4 bottles of hand sanitizer.  

Like I said...dumb asses. 

These people have so screwed up the supply chain for the ordinary citizen that it is almost criminal. They have taken Slinky Dog (from Toy Story) who, in normal times, simply stretched in a controlled manner with the ebb and flow of normal supply & demand but who is, now, kinked-up, stretched out and almost unusable as a re-supply chain, all because of the Dumb Asses reckless and thoughtless abandonment to their emotions. 

Feral? Check. Crazed? Check.  Emetophobic? Check. 

You Tube sometimes makes famous an exceptional person or group; but it also makes infamous the unexceptional, the idiotic and the selfish. And it is to this latter group that the Dumb Asses belong. I'm guessing they have some innate need to shed their synthetic skins and reveal their true self; it is unfortunate that they most always choose to do so at the expense of their neighbors, the greater good and - in this case - an entire country. 

The Dumb Asses have shown to the world that the USA is not exceptional, nor magnanimous and certainly not charitable. They've shown instead that America is just a fourth-world country, full of vain, selfish and bipolar citizens who thinks their own emetophobia deserve self-medication before all others. 

There is no known help available for the Dumb Asses, sadly. No medical study is extant that is trying to help these hapless souls, though I'm sure that someday, somewhere, an obscure medical professional will have a Dr. Salk moment and perfect the vaccine that will rid the USA - and the World - of all Dumb Asses. And if there is any poetic justice in the world, the only side affect to the cure will be permanent splotches on the cheek in the form of the letters "D" & "A". 

But at least we won't run short of toilet paper and hand sanitizer again. And that's worth a little old side-effect, isn't it?

Fr. Emil Kapaun's Upcoming Heroic Virtue Vote in Rome

Photo Credit

Bishop Carl Kemme reports in the current Wichita diocese newspaper, The Catholic Advance, that on March 10, 2020 the Congregation for the Causes of Saints will officially vote on the heroic virtue of Fr Emil Kapaun. If passed, it then goes to Pope Francis and a recommendation that Fr Kapaun be declared "Venerable", which then begins the thorough study of the submitted miracle attributed to Fr. Kapaun's intercession. 

He asks for prayers that all goes well and that Fr. Kapaun's cause advances. Deus Vult!

Commentary on Priestly Celibacy and a Decision To Be Made

I have maintained that BerGOGlio is Pope, though my feelings have always demanded otherwise. But I'm not Catholic because of my feelings, but because of my Baptism. Once a Catholic, always a Catholic.

Numerous times I've found my self wanting to turn my back on Rome, much as She has done to me. The pain is sometimes too great and, much like a cuckolded husband, I've yearned to find the comfort and solace that I once felt with Her. But then I realize it is not Rome, but the Romans who have turned. Rome Herself is still standing, proud and strong, but sadly has been lately covered in so much slime it is hard to see the beauty that lies beneath. But still, I have always been able - through Grace, no doubt - to reject that cuckolded feeling and retain my attachment and allegiance to earthly Rome, and its earthly head as well. That, however, may yet come to an end.

Should BerGOGlio do the unthinkable and end priestly celibacy, no matter how little of an inroad is allowed, the crossroad that I keep fearing might finally be upon me. Not that I plan on reneging on the Baptismal vows spoken by my Godparents on my behalf, but of calling BerGOGlio the true Vicar of Christ and head of His visible church. No true head of Our Lord's Church on Earth would attempt to remove a foundation stone of Catholicism - and the Priesthood - as celibacy. As Ann Barnhardt correctly wrote:

"The rule from DAY ONE was that married men who were ordained had to observe PERFECT, PERPETUAL CONTINENCE. They could never have sex with their wives again. Because, to be a priest and offer the Holy Sacrifice is to be mystically espoused to the Church, and to Christ Himself. The Mass is a nuptial act."

We have been inundated with an actively  homosexual hierarchy - are we now about to be inundated with an actively heterosexual married clergy? And what would happen if a married priest and his wife divorce? What will happen to any children? Will we see a single-parent priest trying to balance his priestly duties with that of a single parent trying to get his kids to soccer, school plays and proms? Will we now have, in addition to lay readers and lay EMHC's, lay Nanny's to watch the priests toddlers while he goes to "work" each Sunday morning? And which Soul will he choose to save if both of these calls come at once: his teenage son's to come pick him up lest he has to drive home drunk from a party, or, the nurse's telling him a dying, fallen away Catholic is on their death-bed and has asked for a priest? Which Soul is more important to him as a Father? Which Soul is more important to him as a Priest? Which Soul would he choose to save? Which Soul would YOU choose to save??

Perhaps the above scenarios would never happen. Perhaps the Hierarchy has already plans in place to assist a married priest in conflict between his clerical and secular duties and responsibilities. Perhaps I am playing the naive fool. Perhaps my lack of a S.T.B. or S.T.L. is telling. Perhaps...perhaps...

Should BerGOGlio actually promulgate approval of married clergy, it may well be the straw that breaks this camels back of acknowledging him as the true head of Christ's Church on earth. He has already made himself a demi-god with Amoris Laetita; now he will try to advance to full-god status by totally redefining the priesthood established by Our Lord Jesus Christ. And that, to me, is the act of a very, very proud man who has no fear of his Lord; King and Creator. 

When - IF - priestly celibacy is rescinded, it may well also be the day when I can no longer look upon BerGOGlio as Pope. 

Pray, Lord, stop this evil bastard, lest we all perish.
