frans friday forum: WHAT IS LACKING IN U.S. POLITICS...Fran's Friday Forum...!!! - 05/18/12 08:14 AM
For three and a half years now we have been subjected to a President that has many ‘hidden agendas’...While we elect a President to represent ALL of our citizens, this President seems pleased to represent well fewer than 50% of our people...(even his most current budget having been rejected by 99 Senators including ALL his own party Senate Democrats)...!!!We read in poll after poll how over 80% of our population CLAIM to be Christian, yet there is little or no outrage from this group when time after time our President has attempted to erode our Christian values with his own version of fairness … (20 comments)

frans friday forum: Fran's Friday Forum...THE LAST MARKING PERIOD...!!! - 05/11/12 07:56 AM
Four times a year my kids come home with REPORT CARDS...And we usually go through the same mental gymnastics each time...You can do better in this subject...you must try harder...you must apply yourself...pay attention more...make sure your homework and project assignments are current...Don’t blame the teacher...AND...ONCE each year, the proverbial “You still have one marking period left to bring up your grades...”WELL...for our President the marking period is almost over...The preliminary grades are all but in...F F F F B- C- Present...!!!
Yeah, he may yet get gas prices to come down some by pulling some 'extra credit' deals...BUT...With the exception … (12 comments)

frans friday forum: Fran's Friday Forum...RENDER TO CAESAR, CAESAR'S...TO GOD, GOD'S...!!! - 05/04/12 07:15 AM
Even those among us who may choose to pooh pooh the Bible as a stale and outdated book are familiar with that oft quoted passage attributed to JESUS...!!!For those of us that believe that THE BIBLE is still the Word Of God, that passage has much deeper significance...especially in the UNITED STATES OF AMERICA in election year 2012...!!!I’m not one who likes to ‘pick and choose’ Scripture passages to suit my needs...I choose rather to see THE BIBLE as God’s Love Story to HIS CHILDREN...In this case, however, we must understand that it was God who said this in the person … (8 comments)

frans friday forum: Fran's Friday Forum...LET THE CHIPS FALL...!!! - 04/20/12 08:50 AM
Not so much now, but when I was a kid growing up, there were two expressions often heard...’A CHIP off the old block’ and ‘A CHIP on the shoulder’...In a way, both were attempts at trying to describe a person’s DEMEANOR or ATTITUDE...Of course, the first, was descriptive of a person who emulated someone who had gone before him, an older version, perhaps a parent, older brother or relative...NOW, it didn’t necessarily have to connote a positive attitude, but generally that was the way the term ‘a CHIP off the old block’ was used...Having ‘a CHIP on one’s shoulder’, on the … (8 comments)

frans friday forum: Trees Don't Need Saving...People Do...Fran's Friday Forum...!!! - 04/13/12 08:21 AM
Let me begin by asserting that for me...JESUS IS LORD...!!!It is the job description of every Christian to follow Jesus...Yes He is God, but the whole reason He became human was to give us an example of HOW TO LIVE...!!!When we say ‘God Is Love’...Jesus’ incarnation and life PROVED IT...!!!My Catholic Faith informs me that God loves everyone, and each person is specially loved by Him as uniquely formed and gifted...GOD DOESN’T MAKE JUNK...!!!Because He loves everyone, He calls everyone...that is what is AMAZING about GRACE...!!! It is also amazing that He gives each person a FREE WILL...to say YES or … (13 comments)

frans friday forum: Fran's Friday Forum...GOD Or Barack...!!! - 04/06/12 01:22 AM
I was debating early this morning whether to post about GOD or President Obama...After all, the most important thing about today is that it is GOOD FRIDAY...!!!My decision was made quickly...GOD is way more RELIABLE, TRUSTWORTHY, TRUTHFUL, FAITHFUL, EDIFYING, & SAVING than our President has been for over three years now...In spite of G.O.D., the GREAT OBAMA DEPRESSION, I wish to dwell on THE ONE TRUE GOD...!!!IT IS GOOD FRIDAY...!!!When we urge our compatriots to ‘KEEP YOUR EYES FIXED ON CHRIST’, on this day there is no better image to conjure up than THE CRUCIFIXION OF JESUS...Even though we as Christians … (9 comments)

frans friday forum: Fran's Friday Forum...LIFE...!!! STILL PRECIOUS...??? - 03/30/12 07:04 AM
It seems that every morning while my wife is preparing the kids school lunches as I listen to the early morning weather and news while gobbling down my Cheerios, reports of multiple murders, tire slashings, violent home break-ins, and hatchet attacks are filling the air waves as we welcome each new daybreak...What a way to start each day...!!!While the intense focus is on the Trayvon Martin death in Florida, and the usual media ‘talking heads’ continue to try to make that case a RACIAL ISSUE, every day, without fail, minorities are killing minorities in our inner cities...Make no mistake about it, … (15 comments)

frans friday forum: Fran's Friday Forum...HUMAN NATURE Or FREE WILL...!!! - 03/22/12 08:03 PM
I’m getting tired of the media and milktoast members of society attributing every mistake of mankind as an excusable result of HUMAN NATURE...!!!These are the folks for which there are NO ABSOLUTES...Everything is relative, I’m OK you’re OK, The devil made me do it, everyone does it, yada, yada, yada...I say God gave us a FREE WILL to do as we please and to make decisions as we please...with the corresponding consequences and accountabilities...Yes, the four last things...DEATH, JUDGMENT, HEAVEN, & HELL...remind us of this...!!!Absolute Justice demands absolute reckoning...Anything short of that is a real distortion of TRUTH...WHY ???....Because I believe … (28 comments)

frans friday forum: Fran's Friday Forum...NO COINCIDENCES...!!! - 03/16/12 07:03 AM
I was reflecting recently on my ancestors leaving their homeland in ITALY some 106 years ago...!!!Actually, my Grandfather, whom I never met (he died when my father was 10 years old), landed at Ellis Island on March 17, 1906...!!!How ironic, I thought, to have landed on the shores of a New Land on the feast of Saint Patrick, patron Saint of The Irish, who would be the main group to ridicule and taunt this next generation of Italian Immigrants as they settled their families in this great Country of ours...!!!It was the late 19th and early 20th centuries, the hay day … (7 comments)

frans friday forum: Election Year CLASS WARFARE...Fran's Friday Forum...!!! - 03/09/12 08:31 AM
Don’t fall for the left’s consistent use of 'CLASS WARFARE' to divide us as a Nation...!!!The terms MIDDLE CLASS, WOMEN’S VOTE, CATHOLIC VOTE, INDEPENDENTS, EVANGELICALS, WALL STREET, MAIN STREET, etc...all methods intended to divide us as a Nation...!!!Let’s face it...OBAMACARE, the 3000 page assault on PERSONAL FREEDOM has already received plenty of legitimate criticism, and the federally enacted ‘HEALTH PLAN’ hasn’t even been implemented yet...Forget rising fuel prices, still unacceptable employment levels, inflationary food prices, declining property values, dependence on foreign oil, skyrocketing national debt...our current President should be unelectable purely on the matter of OBAMACARE...!!! This should be his signature … (8 comments)

frans friday forum: Who Enforces THE OATH...Fran's Friday Forum...??? - 03/02/12 07:22 AM
I recently did some research on the ‘Oath Of Office’ government employees are required to take, and found some interesting items:Item 1...Here is the OATH OF OFFICE required by our Constitution that every federal employee must take: 
I, [name], do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; that I take this obligation freely, without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion; and that I will well and faithfully discharge the duties of the office on … (15 comments)

frans friday forum: Fran's Friday Forum...CHRISTIAN Feminism...!!! - 02/24/12 08:07 AM
I am an Italian American Catholic male...I  believe in feminism...With three daughters and four granddaughters, each of whom I love specially and dearly, how could I NOT be a feminist...???My purpose for writing this post is to beg some prominent CHRISTIAN FEMINISTS to come forward and boldly make a case for the difference between SECULAR FEMINISM which tears apart the moral fabric of a true Judeo Christian society, and REAL CHRISTIAN FEMINISM which espouses conservative Christian family values, virtue, and morality...As the French would say...VIVA LA DIFFERENCE...!!!We have an upcoming election where it appears that the ‘FEMALE VOTE’ may be the … (8 comments)

frans friday forum: Fran's Friday Forum...BLACK AND CATHOLIC Are Beautiful...!!! - 02/17/12 06:29 AM
February is Black History Month...!!!I’m trying to figure out why, in a Country where 24% of the population claims to be Catholic, only 3% of African Americans worship as Catholics...!!!While I grew up in a typical second generation Italian American neighborhood, and I’m sorry to say I DID hear the ‘N’ word used from time to time, it always amazed me that there were so few blacks in our Church...!!!
Why was I amazed...???From first grade on we were taught that discrimination against anyone of another race, creed, or ethnic background was sinful...The good sisters of the IHM made it perfectly … (6 comments)

frans friday forum: Global Warming...Climate Change...Urbanization...Fran's Friday Forum...!!! - 02/10/12 10:18 AM
Do you believe in the theory of EVOLUTION...???In addition to Darwin’s THEORY OF EVOLUTION there are some other theories that have been adopted by PROGRESSIVES to ‘persuade’ (read bamboozle) the gullible to see things their way: Darwin’s theory of ‘NATURAL SELECTION’...The dictionary definition of ‘NATURAL SELECTION’ reads: ...the process by which those individuals with characteristics that help them become adapted to their environment tend to survive and transmit their characteristics.AND SO...our leftist, progressive, conspiracy theory friends, in an effort to gain acceptance and additional herd members have changed that idea of theirs originally known as GLOBAL WARMING to CLIMATE CHANGE and … (24 comments)

frans friday forum: Fran's Friday Forum...WHY SOME DON'T GET IT...!!! - 01/26/12 08:57 PM
I listened carefully to The State of The Union Address on Tuesday evening...And before commenting on it I let some time for reflection pass by...What a clever ‘PEP RALLY’ led by a clever orator...!!!Missing from the speech, however, were many important items on the minds of many like minded citizens...Among which were decreasing the size of government, curtailing government spending, putting unemployed and under-employed people back to work soon, de-funding Planned Parenthood, lowering corporate taxes, freeing the US from dependence on foreign oil, reducing gas prices at the pump (they’ve actually doubled since he took office), the whole topic of RELIGIOUS … (8 comments)

frans friday forum: Fran's Friday Forum...KEYS TO TRUST...!!! - 01/20/12 11:29 AM
Most of you probably are unaware that for around 3 years now, since I have been ‘semi-retired’, I have taken on driving two ‘special ed’ students to school and back home each day...This doesn’t conflict with my ‘consulting’ duties at Patriot Land Transfer, Inc., since I am able to squeeze in most of the midday hours at My Title Insurance agency and still accomplish getting the students to and from school in a timely manner...Of course, I couldn’t do this without the assistance of my very competent and compassionate staff, who constantly cover my back...Special thanks to my Son In Law, Gil, … (7 comments)

frans friday forum: Fran's Friday Forum...OLD AMBASSADORS NEVER DIE...!!! - 01/13/12 10:42 AM
That’s right, old Ambassadors never die, they just fade away into RAINMAKING...!!!In case you haven’t noticed I’ve lost my ‘Ambassador’s Badge’ here at Active Rain...That’s right again, I’ve been relegated to be a plain old ‘RAINMAKER’.......once again...Oh, don’t be concerned that I was involuntarily ‘IMPEACHED’ by the wonderful staff at AR...My return to RAINMAKING was very mutually agreed upon...You see, I’m from Douglassville, Pennsylvania, and I have sometimes been referred to as the ‘ASS’ in the center of DouglASSville...I recently became aware that AmbASSador also had an ‘ASS’ in its center...AND...Since I felt there were already too many ‘ASSES’ to go … (9 comments)

frans friday forum: Fran's Friday Forum...A LEAP OF FAITH YEAR...!!! - 01/06/12 10:29 AM
2012...A Leap Of Faith Year...???It will take a ‘LEAP OF FAITH’ on behalf of many potential voters to bring about a successful 2012...!!!Even though our current President has failed on just about every front, there are millions of deluded liberals who still have their heads in the sand.......(or perhaps the liberal heads are somewhere else)...who are still in denial...Actually, in fairness to liberals and conservatives alike, the people of whom I speak don’t deserve to be labelled either liberal or anything else because they wouldn’t be able to enunciate the ‘typical’ liberal mentality...no...these people, for the most part, are simply IGNORANT...!!!WELL, … (5 comments)

A recent article on MSN HOME explained how SOLAR ENERGY was empowering ‘DEVELOPING NATIONS’ to develop more quickly and efficiently...BTW, I keep MSN as my home page just to see what ‘the enemy’ is up to...!!!If I thought the article had any merit I would have established a hot link on this blog for quick and handy reference to the piece...However, like THE MEDIA, MSNBC, CNN, THE THREE MAJOR TV NETWORKS, THE NEW YORK TIMES, etc...Their hidden agendas are easily recognized and remain no longer hidden...The only advantage provided by SOLAR ENERGY to the developing nations was to possibly move them … (8 comments)

Last night’s Republican debate hosted by FOX NEWS was an eye opening and interesting exchange of important ideas...IF YOU WANT TO FIX OUR COUNTRY...!!!I’ll give my liberal friends an opportunity to bow out gracefully from this post ‘right now’ if they still think that the Obama approach of ‘left now’ is still working...!!!What I heard last night was promising inasmuch as the Republican candidates debating seemed to identify most, if not many, of the present political and societal ills plaguing us...No new taxes, severe spending cuts, reducing the size of our government, strengthening our military, revising our tax codes, eliminating unnecessary … (12 comments)
