February Februation!

17 February, 2020 Oh February!  What a Dark Past You Have! The Februarius Mensis, the cleansing month, so-called because of the festival Februa (see februum: “religious purification” and Februa, the Roman feast of purification held on 15 February) reminds us of the pagan past from which Western (and especially Christian) civilization emerged.   (Thanks be to […]

A Letter

0830, 8 Feb., 2020 A letter is so much better A phone call is spoken and The words are heard and gone But the letter is so much better! You cut the envelope Unfold the paper You see, you touch it Again and again As oft as you like No end You see, you touch […]

A Parent’s Grief Imagined

10 Feb., 2020 The guests have gone Ceremonies and kinds words Are remembered Good people have done their duty And I mine. We all go back to our days Our ways are productive And we all have things to do But mine are in sorrow What do I spend them for? The chore of children […]

“Booty Gig.” Hmm. What has the Nation Come To?

6 Feb., 2020 After 47 years of baby-butchery (re: Roe of course), soon followed by the decriminalization of sodomy across the fruited plain, we cannot be surprised at the candidacy of a sodomite for President.   Yes, one Pete Buttigieg. No.  It doesn’t take a lot of hocus pocus to get such a deviant in that […]

Reflections on Hedonism

30 January, 2020 How deceitful pleasure can be!  When we put our own comfort and joys and situations ahead of right and truth and suffering.  All the discomfort and pain which might have served to correct and strengthen our souls is avoided and shunned in preference for pleasure and comfort. Lactantius, a church father of […]

Got to Take a Schiff!

25 Jan., 2020 Oh Mercy!  Got to Take a Schiff! Adam Schiff’s disgraceful whining against our President makes me want to apply his name in memorial fashion in “honor” of his baseless, political machinations –   as in “I need to take a schiff right now!  We are inspired to defecate.  Yes, let us relieve ourselves […]

“Faith in Action” Folly

23 January, 2020 I get a newsletter in the mail occasionally, titled Faith in Action, edited by one Ralph Reed.   The publication is devoted to advancing morality in government for which I commend it.  But it subverts this goal but undermining itself with non-sense support for the contemporary state of Israel.  Millenarian fantasies – doctrinal […]
