All the news I wish to print

There are all kinds of stories out there. Some will make you laugh, some will make you cry. Some will make you shrug, some will make you scream. Read any daily paper or listen to any newscast and your emotions can go from happy to sad to disbelief to fear to incredulity to horror to anger in very short order.
As we go along, there will be stories, as Paul Harvey used to say, to "wash your ears out with." There will be others that will make you feel like you need to be deloused simply by virtue of have in heard or read them. Some posts will be religious, some secular and for some I expect will defy easy classification in either category. I hope you will join me in this journey and pleas feel free to comment along the way.
For my part I pledge not to remove any posts unless they are vulgar, libelous, threatening or otherwise in violation of the standards of civil discussion. I will not remove any post simply because I disagree with it but I will reserve the right to respond to any challenges that come my way.
God bless you and welome to my blog.

US bishops say aid for unemployed is a 'moral obligation' :: EWTN News

Despite the tendency of proponents on both sides of the aisle to project opposing black hat/white hat opposing viewpoints, in the long run, whether or not benefits are extended or for how long does not matter one wit to solving the core problem of persistent unemployment. The US Bishops are right that is a moral obligation and that aid certainly includes emergency financial assistance. However what is needed is an economy with the confidence an freedom to expand and create jobs. Failing that we will be right back here whenever the extended benefits run out with the difference being a diminished ability of of a further weakened economy to absorb the cost of these benefits.
