In the history of mankind, many republics have risen, have flourished for a less or greater time, and then have fallen because their citizens lost the power of governing themselves and thereby of governing their state. TR

        1. A disgrace? He said amusingly muddled things–was famous for it–do all athletes have to do this? He was funny, tho…I liked the one about how a restaurant was so popular no one wanted to go there.

          1. One I liked was…”Always go to other people’s funerals, otherwise they won’t come to yours.”

            He was one of my dad’s favorite places, second only to Joe DiMaggio…my dad passed away on the same date (9/22) six years ago.

    1. Yogi Berra–

      –First generation American
      –Served in the Navy in WW2, Gunner’s Mate on the USS Bayfield during the D-Day invasion.
      –18 times All Star player
      –10 times World Series player
      –358 Home Runs
      –Three time American League Most Valuable player Award
      –Baseball Hall of Fame 1972
      –As a manager, lead both American and National League teams to the World Series.

      It doesn’t get much better than that.

    1. The MSM is reveling in his comments about climate change and immigrants…nothing but crickets, of course, about his views on abortion and traditional marriage.

      1. If he was so concerned about immigrants he could start shedding some of those Vatican bucks and share the wealth with the refugees. And St. Peter’s is a large square, he can host more than 2 families.

        It would be nice if those families were persecuted Christians, but I am not holding my breath.

    2. I am Catholic and no fan of this Pope. If he wants to take a political stance that is in line with the teachings of the church then he could take some time and talk about Planned Parenthood and the sale of baby parts and the funding of abortion. He does not speak of this.

      And as far as capitalism goes — it was pointed out that Wall Street money largely rebuilt St. Patrick’s where the Pope will celebrate. But far be it from this Pope to acknowledge that.

      He did not acknowledge the lack of human rights or the right of dissidents to see him in Cuba. He saved it to rain down on America and the American citizens.

      I expect he will fire large salvos of disapproval when he addresses Congress. Kind of like one of Obama’s SOTU addresses.

      1. Thats why Obama likes this Pope — they both like to lecture and blame Americans, why, because they have a disdain for the U.S. and its people, sickies, the two of them.

  1. After going to the Wash Post and reading comments–most of them against Republicans, how hateful they are, how indifferent to suffering, how greedy, how stupid, how corrupt–and having seen so much of the same here where I respect people, I came away v. dejected today…Will I end up voting for Biden or not voting…Maybe I am not a conservative…It is hard to defend against all these awful things.

    1. I suppose I identify more with Republicans.
      I am certain I am not a Democrat.
      The Democratic Party is definitely not the party my parents supported. I don’t believe in abortion, illegal immigration, gay marriage and degradation of religion and it’s believers. I think welfare destroys personal initiative. And I will never, ever, ever believe government will be more productive than private enterprise. I know from personal experience that government is not more efficient or innovative.
      Are Republicans the same party? Nope.
      But, I think there are more conservatives (like me) who are supportive of capitalism (I like that) and our Constitution (it is the foundation of our country and still stands the test of time.)
      Those people – me – will vote R because we cannot and will not vote D.

      1. person that you feel will bring the country to where it needs to be. You have to believe in the candidate and he or she has to believe in American.

  2. And Keith, please accept this wish from a non Jewish follower (me):
    “G’mar Hatimah Tovah”
    (“May You Be Sealed for a Good Year (in the Book of Life).”)

  3. The Holy Father can sure talk the talk, but when it comes time to walk -he flies in the biggest airplane I have ever seen. The carbon imprint numbers on the atmosphere is right up there with AF1.
    While he talks about the poor, he waves around solid gold icons. He might ride around in a modest auto, but he wears the finest silk.
    He can tell us that we should embrace illegal aliens, but until we see thousands of illegal aliens legally camping out in the Vatican, then it’s not meaning a thing to anyone.
    I am a good a Catholic as he, but I believe that everyone should obey the laws of whatever nation they live in or hope to live in.
