It’s ‘crazy’ rather than cold outside

Politically correct madness shows up on a daily basis.  It’s enough to drive anybody crazy.  How much more can they come up with?
Over the last week, we heard from a professor in Minnesota about the story of the Immaculate Conception.   
As my Catholic friends know, December 8th is a “day of obligation” or one of “extra days” that we have to go to mass. Or as my mother used to say when we were kids:  “Misa o problema”.  It loosely translates to:  “You go to mass or you are in deep trouble with me and God.” In other words, this is a day that we Catholics take very seriously.
This is his version of what happened over 2,000 years ago:   
Dr. Eric Sprankle, a psychology professor and sex therapist at Minnesota State University, Mankato, has Satanist posts peppered throughout his social media feed.
On Monday, as Satanists frequently do, he criticized Christianity by pointing to the story about Jesus’s virgin birth, Campus Reform reports.
“The virgin birth story is about an all-knowing, all-powerful deity impregnating a human teen. There is no definition of consent that would include that scenario. Happy Holidays,” Sprankle wrote on Twitter.
Merry Christmas to you, Professor Sprankle.  Thank you for joining the list of those on the left who always take cheap shots at Christian traditions.  Have you ever taken similar cheap shots at other religions?  It must be nice to live in a country where you can mock the religious beliefs of those who pay your salary and get away with it.
The other example is an old song that no one cared about until now — “Baby it’s Cold Outside”.   My grandmother never complained about it.  My mother did not either.  Suddenly, the song is just the latest example of how rotten men have treated women forever.
I like what Dean Martin’s daughter said about this:   
“I was absolutely flabbergasted,” said Deana about the recent controversy. “It’s just insane. When I heard it, I said, ‘This can’t possibly be.’ You know, it’s a sweet, flirty, fun holiday song that’s been around for 40 years for my dad. He did it in ’59. But when I saw it, I tweeted, ‘I think this is crazy. What do you think?’ And then all of a sudden, it went viral.”
Deana explained that like her, many fans of the longtime track were perplexed by the news over the holiday season.    
Insane indeed.
My message to the PC crowd is simple:  We don’t care about your opinions.  Keep it to yourself.  Let us believe what we believe or listen to the songs that we want to listen to.
Go away, PC crowd.  Go away.

1917: Father Flanagan established "Boys Town"

It's a great movie.   It's also a true story.   Father Flanagan established "Boys Town", a place for troubled boys.   It is called "Boys and Girls Town" today.    Spencer Tracy played Father Flanagan:

1917: We remember Father Flanagan and Boys Town



It's one of my favorite stories, and movies, too.   

On this day in 1917, Father Edward J. Flanagan, a 31-year-old Irish priest, opened the doors to what we would later call "Boys Town".

Years later, the story was made into a movie.  What a great movie it was!

Justin Trudeau runs into his own carbon tax resistance

Image result for trudeau cartoons

Over the last couple of years, we had French and French-Canadian versions of President Obama.  They were young, “dynamic”, articulate and carried the climate change banner all the way around the bases.
Well, that was then and this is now.  We know what happened to President Macron.  Just check the news and see what’s happening in the streets of Paris and elsewhere.
We may not see “yellow jackets” up north, no burning cars or breaking windows, but the message won’t be different, as we see in The New York Times:    
In Canada, a meeting this week between the country’s premiers and Prime Minister Justin Trudeau was preceded by vocal opposition from the leaders of Ontario and Saskatchewan over plans to impose a federal carbon tax in their provinces.
And as the world’s environment ministers meet this month in Poland for follow-up talks on the Paris climate accord, many of the signatories — Canada included — remain far off-course on the goals of the agreement.
The leaders in Ontario and Saskatchewan see that you can’t tax your way to saving the planet.  Taxing industrial facilities on CO2 emissions will simply move those plants to third world locations exempted from the impact of regulation for many years to come, maybe to China or Vietnam where other real polluting is underway.
Increasing energy costs cripples the middle class. The reality is that there is no viable alternative to fossil fuels, unless you want people in North America to go back to burning wood for heat and cooking.
My guess is that some entrepreneur out there will make fossil fuels irrelevant.  At the same time, it’s probably a lot further down the road that we want.
Anyway, the reality is that taxing people is not going to make our air cleaner.  It will make a lot of politicians very unpopular, as Mr. Macron learned.

December 1967: "Snoopy's Christmas" by Royal Guardsmen



Image result for snoopy's christmas images



The Royal Guardsmen had 3 hit songs about "Snoopy".............my guess is that most of you remember "Snoopy's Christmas":


"The news it came out in the First World War
The bloody Red Baron was flying once more
The Allied Command ignored all of its men
And called on Snoopy to do it again
Was the night before Christmas and forty below
When Snoopy went up in search of his foe
He spied the Red Baron and fiercely they fought
With ice on his wings, Snoopy knew he was caught

Christmas bells those Christmas bells
Ring out from the land
Asking peace of all the world
And good will to man
The Baron had Snoopy dead in his sights
He reached for the trigger to pull it up tight
Why he didn't shoot, well, we'll never know
Or was it the bells from the village below

Christmas bells those Christmas bells
Ringing through the land
Bringing peace to all the world
And good will to man
The Baron made Snoopy fly to the Rhine
And forced him to land behind the enemy lines
Snoopy was certain that this was the end
When the Baron cried out
"Merry Christmas, mein friend!"
The Baron then offered a holiday toast
And Snoopy our hero saluted his host
And then with a roar they were both on their way
Each knowing they'd meet on some other day......"
