I heard that someone from a Catholic blog left a comment on another Catholic blog chastising the blogger for including political news on a religious blog. Well I am guilty of doing the same thing and definitely think today's political news does have a place on a Catholic blog. Being a Catholic doesn't mean we have no contact with world issues, quite the contrary. What about abortion? Shouldn't that be an issue in all religious denominations? "Thou Shalt Not Kill" is one of ten commandments given to Moses by God. Jesus told his apostles, "Teach them to observe all the commands I give you". Now if you don't believe in God, no amount of talking will convince you otherwise.

The many people protesting healthcare reform are REAL people, not a "fringe" as the media is reporting. I live in a small town but if I have a chance to protest, I will. There has been no rational explanation why because 46 muillion have no insurance that those of us who are insured and satisfied will eventually be thrown into the "pool" with them. A neighbor of my daughter's recently returned from Germany after taking care of her aged mother until she died. She was refused medical treatment because she was considered "too old". I don't know the cut off age when you are considered too old there but they place more focus on the very young.

Abortion is the cause of America's economical downfall. The babies aborted from 1973 through 1994 would be in the workforce now. I, as many others did, worked when I was 15 yrs.old. I read China is having problems and asking women to have a second child.

We are reaping what we have sown but it is not too late to turn around.

This is sad but not unexpected. It seems our means of communicating with one another has been attacked.

A Fishy Blog

I suppose a few of my visitors have been wondering why I have not been here ... well it's not because I didn't try but each time I came the "stench" emanating from my blog was too much to bear. I am braving it today as I know where the smell is coming from .. my blog is a FISHY BLOG. Why? Because I talk about things like it is wrong to abort babies as God gives them life and we are destroying that life. If we kill a baby in the womb, we will also kill the elderly and infirmed., I will admit that I am among the elderly and I fear that I will have to be eliminated to make room for others. Another strike against me is that I am also retired after working and paying in taxes for many years .. so my usefulness is considered over. Because I am a responsible person, I have insurance. I should have no worries then but I also am not "dumb", I hear what is proposed and the private insurance companies will be forced to shut down and "socialized" care will take their place.

Because I have experience with a FISHY BLOG, I also know FISHY TALES when I hear them.
