    I am constantly amazed at how many “smart” people dismiss the fact that Trump has been a lifelong liberal Democrat and then suddenly becomes a “conservative” without espousing any conservative policies.

    They really believe he’s going to nominate someone who is a CONSTITUTIONALIST to the Supreme Court? Really?

    Based on WHAT?

    Spanky, calling me names doesn’t do anything to strengthen your position. My position is based on common sense and, unfortunately, on proven safety concerns. What’s yours based on?

    You shop where you want and I’ll shop where I feel most comfortable. That’s the beauty of Capitalism.

    We have THREE Target stores within an easy drive and they typically get the first shot at outfitting my grandchildren. No more. This past week I spent $233.52 at Kohl’s instead.

    Kohl’s announced that they will NOT follow Target’s lead and will expect men and women to use the dressing rooms and bathrooms of their naturally assigned gender. They now get first dibs.

    We were frequent Target shoppers till this fiasco started. Yesterday, we took two of the grandkids (ages 7 & 8) to Kohl’s and spent $225 on summer things that we would have previously bought at Target.

    AND, we had a good talk with the grandkids about WHY we won’t shop Target ever again.

    This has little to do with being a R or D thing. It has to do with what WE, as citizens, tolerate. I will be mailing a copy of my Kohl’s receipt to Target corporate later today.

    Last week I took my grandchildren into the Women’s restroom at a local RaceTrack after their soccer game. I stopped when I saw a sign on the restroom door that read:

    “Gals. The Seat Will Always Be Down.” It was a royal blue sign about 12″ square with the typical female logo and a dotted line pointing from the woman to the words. (I took a photo of it, but can’t upload the photo here.)

    I honestly didn’t know what to think. What are they saying here? They allow men in the women’s room, but assure me that they’ve already pre-screened these men and know that they won’t leave the seat up? Or, they won’t allow men in there?

    If I hadn’t been in such a hurry, I would have stopped to talk with the manager. You can be assured that I will stop to ask before we use that gas station chain again. If they allow men, they are off my list of safe places to take my grandkids.

    It’s NEVER been about what the “trans” people want.

    The Progressive movement has to destabilize the family. Sexual norms must go out the window, and allowing people to use whatever bathroom fits their mood is part of the Progressive movement’s agenda.

    As is the forced acceptance of all the monikers they now proclaim are legitimate sexual expressions. (Remember when it used to be just Lesbian and Gay that we had to accept?)

    Both the artist and the wealthy people who feel the need to spend millions of dollars on trash. It speaks volumes about their inner beauty.

    Thanks, Bearway. I literally just brought my two grandchildren (ages 7 & 8) into the den to sit down and watch both videos. To the best of my knowledge, neither have ever been around a handgun or rifle.

    When the video above was over, both agreed that the youngsters should never have touched the gun. I asked what they should do and the 8-year-old said, “Run out of the room.” Why? “Because i wouldn’t want to get shot.”

    Then I played the NRA video. It’s geared to their age and was quite simple, but good. It teaches the kids through a song — “Stop. Don’t touch. Run away. Get a grownup.”

    They are now talking with their mom about scenarios where they might find a gun and what they’d do.

    Good teaching moment! Thanks, Bearway64.

    Charlie, the key here is the word “faithful” Catholic. Neither Pelosi or Kerry fall into that category.

  • [7] May 5, 2016 at 12:35am

    Charlie, you should come down South! I had lived in 7 states before I arrived in Georgia. In each of the other locations, Catholicism was the predominant religion. Most Catholics I knew were poorly catechized and what we’d call “lukewarm” in their faith. They knew the basics, but that was about it. So, I was never challenged in my faith.

    Down in the South, Catholicism represents only about 1% of the population and it was here that I found out many of the strong Protestant faiths consider Catholics to be heretics — not Christians at all. Under that kind of scrutiny and lots of questions about my faith, I was forced to study it in earnest and learned so much that I had missed as a child.

    Thank God for the religious groups that made me work at it, as I learned so much and really came to know Jesus in a much deeper way. Now I can say that I’m proud to be Catholic and can dialogue easily about what we really believe.

    Freunlaven, you are making a mistake that many Catholics make. Christ has promised to protect His Church and has said the “Gates of hell shall not prevail against it.” The key word here is PREVAIL. The Barque of Peter has been under assault from within as well as from without, but She WILL PREVAIL and ultimately win in the end.

    As you should know, the Church has had many popes who were scoundrels. They have, in their own times, given the Church a black eye. But the Church has always righted the boat and prevailed.

    Anyone who has taken a serious look at our current Pope has got to see the Marxist tendencies there. He seems to delight in leaving not only the faithful, but the uncatechized, scratching their heads. Strong, orthodox Cardinals have called him on the carpet for this.

    Cavallo was merely pointing that out, which doesn’t make him a heretic. The rest of Cavallo’s arguments don’t make a lot of sense to me, but everyone is entitled to their opinion.

    I just wanted to set the record straight regarding the “Gates of Hell” comment, which has been tossed around a lot lately in the Catholic circles.

    Pegasus, it’s even more deplorable that there are very, very few homes for unwed mothers here in the US — even ones sponsored by the Catholic Church. Our country has abandoned the practice of helping these women because abortion is so readily available.

    As a part-time sidewalk counselor outside of an abortion clinic, I have MANY times tried to find a place for a woman who chose to walk away from the clinic and keep her pregnancy, but who also faced being kicked out of her current living situation if she did NOT abort. They know that keeping the pregnancy means they will be homeless and we often don’t have a good solution; mainly because the few beds we have available have a long waiting list.

    I’m happy to say that our local Archdiocese here in Atlanta donated an unused retirement home to a local Christian charity who specializes in helping these mommies and it had the grand opening just last week. With ten units, they are already at capacity! The facility is called “Sheltering Grace.” It is run by a wonderful Christian group and these mothers get hands-on help getting their lives on track — job training, parenting skills, schooling, etc.

  • [9] May 4, 2016 at 4:59pm

    I can’t imagine a more ridiculous headline.

    Not only can FAITHFUL Catholics be good citizens, it used to be that others looked to the Catholics as standard-bearers in the community. Catholic charity work has been the bulwark of many institutions — hospitals, schools, universities. Not to mention homes for the terminally ill or unwed mothers.

    Catholics held the belief that we are to give back to our community and hold ourselves to high moral standards.

    Some of us still do.

    Oh, how I wish Cruz hadn’t jumped on the trash Trump bandwagon. He needed to stick to his policies and stay the high road. I believe he lost a lot of votes due to the recent negativity.

  • [4] May 3, 2016 at 7:38pm

    aaaro88, acceptance, but not in the way you are thinking.

    Acceptance in the fact that many tens of thousand of people have fasted and prayed for Cruz, acknowledging that our nation has walked FAR from God’s principles and many more tens of thousands are asking for a “king.” Those people have no idea what they will be getting when their “king” sits on the throne.

    But we do.

    Acceptance that God has permitted it is different — far different — than accepting The Donald as our leader.

  • [1] May 3, 2016 at 7:31pm

    Sorry, but NEVER TRUMP. I’d rather see Hillary in the WH than Trump.

    The devil you know.

  • [28] May 2, 2016 at 12:31am

    Sorry, Monk, but when you work in a service industry, you have to learn to take the crap with a smile on your face. What harm would it have done for this wanna-be owner to have kissed butt, even though he was seething inside? He has to learn how to grow up if he wants to be an owner.

    You know better, Monk. You let me down on this one.

  • [4] May 1, 2016 at 8:15pm

    gdibig, everyone of any significance has already shot down Trump on that one. There is no there there. Cruz’s eligibility is a non-issue — just another one of Trump’s smokescreens.

  • [63] May 1, 2016 at 7:58pm

    Sorry, Sailplanesailor, I’m calling your bluff on this one.

    Cruz smug? Trump has that in spades, and it’s the least annoying of his traits.

    You were a Trumpeter from the get-go.
