frans friday forum: GOOD AND EVIL...Fran's Friday Forum...!!! - 12/28/12 06:48 AM
Ever since the beginning of recorded history we hear stories based on the INCORRECT dualistic belief of Good and Evil...Many of these stories would lead you to believe that there exist two great motivators...GOOD AND EVIL...and more often than not they are given equal time and equal effect...BUT...That is not what our Christian heritage teaches us...We believe in ONE GOD...Who created everything that is from NOTHING...AND especially mankind in His own Image...!!!Therefore He, Who, by definition, is ALL GOOD is far superior than any ‘EVIL INFLUENCES’...Evil entered the world because of God’s gift of FREE WILL...God desiring that all return to … (8 comments)

frans friday forum: TAKING BACK AMERICA...Fran's Friday Forum...!!! - 12/21/12 07:24 AM
For more years than I care to count now I have witnessed my Country slowly drifting away from the Country I knew as a kid and as an adult trying to establish a wholesome family legacy...After all, that is what the good nuns of the IHM taught us, that is what our faith led us to believe, and that is what all the mentors and role models in my life suggested was necessary to ‘live happily ever after’...(remember when all good stories ended on that note)...If it’s not already too late, if indeed we have not already entered the slippery slope, … (15 comments)

frans friday forum: KNOWLEDGE PUFFS UP, LOVE BUILDS UP...Fran's Friday Forum...!!! - 12/14/12 09:02 AM
Knowledge ‘puffs up’, but love ‘builds up’...!!! 1 Cor. 8:1 RSV
It seems a popular ‘MO’ of many of this generation to think that they don’t have to build upon the invention of the wheel...that somehow, they can redefine and/or explain most anything by themselves, on their own...without regard or recognition of those who have preceded us...!!!
This tactic, at best, is typical of an inflated ego syndrome, of course, unless there is blame to be assigned, wherein, then, previous individuals or ideologies may be cited...!!!
Like it or not, we all make progress on the shoulders of those who have gone before us, … (0 comments)

No, I haven’t given up on my fight to get THE TRUTH out...It’s merely time for THE GASPARI BOYS annual spiritual retreat this weekend...!!!This year, much as in previous years, the retreat is not coming too soon...!!!I don’t see how any God loving creature can go through a whole year without some mechanism to rejuvenate his/her spirit...to step aside from the hustle, bustle, and confusion of the busy world in which we live...and allow some time for The God who made us to work in our lives and keep us on the right course to our eternal home...!!!

frans friday forum: PARENT TRAP 2012...Fran's Friday Forum...!!! - 11/30/12 07:36 AM
 
Earlier this week Fox News Show host and outspoken conservative, Sean Hannity, made an analogy to explain the divisive nature that was displayed in our recent election...We are a country split right down the middle...we are like two parents...one permissive, the other disciplinarian...After reflecting on this analogy, it became apparent to me that Sean’s analysis had some merit...The PERMISSIVE PARENT: Liberal, progressive, experimental, inclusive, relativistic, pragmatic, self-centered, superficial, spontaneous, controlling, impulsive, narcissistic...The DISCIPLINARIAN PARENT: Conservative, traditional, values oriented, other centric, independent, ethical, virtuous, spiritual, sacrificial, self controlled, accountable, unique...Please realize that the above comparison invites discussion, debate, and reflection, and … (11 comments)

While more than half of our world, (read Americans), will join the hustle and bustle of THE BLACK FRIDAY SHOPPING FRENZY, the more peaceful among us will be enjoying the beautiful and wonderful things that GOD HAS WROUGHT apart from that MATERIAL WORLD OF MADONNA...!!!And while the spirit of Thanksgiving is still warm in our hearts, may I use this post to wish all my loving, peaceful, pro life, calm, conservative friends.......AND.......My liberal progressive left leaning, disgruntled, grumpy, discontented, displeased, disappointed, dissatisfied, irritable, annoyed, enraged, bitter, turbulent, hostile, out of humor, sore, peeved, raging, fuming, ….... ‘cousins’.......A HAPPY THANKSGIVING and a … (8 comments)

frans friday forum: Fran's Friday Forum...OBAMAGEDDON...!!! - 11/16/12 07:02 AM
Napoleon had his Waterloo, Richard Nixon had his Watergate, and President Obama has his BENGHAZI...!!!In the middle of the latest Congressional hearings of the Benghazi Tragedy where four American Patriots were slaughtered while some stood by refusing to send support or backup, an Israel completely surrounded by hostile forces took the initiative to defend its people...Will this be World War III...???I hope not, but many New Testament warnings seem to be fulfilled while you read this post...!!!It is not known where the BENGHAZI HEARINGS will lead, but TRUTH would be a good place to aim...!!!BENGHAZI should not be the plane upon … (16 comments)

frans friday forum: REFLECTION ON THE ELECTION...Fran's Friday Forum...!!! - 11/08/12 06:17 PM
It was our just turned 18 year old son JOSH’s first election...!!!Of course, rather than share my disappointment with the outcome of the 2012 Presidential election in a typical liberal reactionary type way, I decided to take some time and present my personal observations in a more peaceful reflectional manner...!!!Of course, First and Foremost, My primary citizenship is in heaven...next, I cherish my role and vocation as a spouse and parent to flow from that reality as a practicing Roman Catholic, and lastly I am a proud and patriotic American of Italian American descent...We are a nation divided.......and almost right down … (22 comments)

Next Tuesday, election day, America will have the opportunity to set our nation on a new course...!!!When the going gets tough, the tough get going...!!!My HOPE is that Wednesday morning will dawn with a resounding ROMNEY/RYAN landslide victory...!!!There are many opportunities in life that pass us by, but this one is well within our grasp to achieve...!!!Unlike the present administration we will not seek to demonize our opponents, but merely to replace a failed effort...

frans friday forum: BARACK DUCKS BENGHAZI BUCKS...Fran's Friday Forum...!!! - 10/26/12 08:11 AM
It was President Harry Truman who kept a plaque on his desk in the oval office stating ‘THE BUCK STOPS HERE’...!!!That was then, this is now...President Obama has shielded himself from ‘THE BUCK’ by appointing CZARS for every aspect of executive responsibility that falls under the aegis of the WHITE HOUSE...essentially insulating himself from blame when something backfires...That is the essence of the tragedy of Benghazi...They will debate the who, what, when, how, and why of this tragic event, but the deaths of 4 American public servants will forever ‘memorialize’ all that is wrong with government gone awry...!!!After all, we elected … (18 comments)

frans friday forum: FRAGMENTS FROM FRAN...Fran’s Friday Forum...!!! - 10/19/12 07:27 AM
FRAGMENTS FROM FRAN...Fran’s Friday Forum...!!!I really wanted to title this post FRAGMENTS FROM GOD...It is truly HE who deserves the credit...!!!Over the past week several important themes have developed that I should like to share with you...!!!
***FIRST***
One of my favorite scripture passages is from PROVERBS 3:5...”Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and do not rely on your own insight.”Now in order to get the full value of this or any other passages of scripture they must be placed in proper context...So, often, it is necessary to read a few passages before and/or a few passages following … (7 comments)

frans friday forum: BIDEN...DeBATER Or DeBULLY...Fran's Friday Forum...!!! - 10/12/12 07:11 AM
After watching the embarrassing performance that Vice President Biden turned in last night in the Vice Presidential debate, I can see why many citizens distrust politicians...!!!Listening to several post debate analyses, I heard words like crude, rude, insincere, abrasive, abusive, disrespectful, defensive, annoying, and phony...just to name a few...and, of course, all directed at vice president Biden as he and Paul Ryan squared off in their one and only debate before our November elections...!!!Paul Ryan, on the other hand, was described by these same commentators as courteous, respectful, extremely tolerant and effective...!!!

frans friday forum: AND NONE OF THAT STUFF...Fran's Friday Forum...!!! - 10/05/12 07:44 AM
Are you, like me, tired of the lies, misrepresentations, and finger pointing that have become a part of the political scene in America, indeed, perhaps even in the world of politics...!!!Jesus, in Matthew, reminds us to say ‘YES’ when we mean YES and ‘NO’ when we mean NO...anything more comes from evil...!!!The problem is not exclusive to our ENGLISH LANGUAGE, nor SEMANTICS, nor LACK OF KNOWLEDGE, but a MOVEMENT OF THE HEART...Yes...there is very much a force of evil in the world...many would say it is escalating with time, yet others deny the existence of evil, and even GOD’S EXISTENCE...!!!Some who … (6 comments)

frans friday forum: Fran's Friday Forum...RED TO BLUE NOTES...!!! - 09/28/12 07:54 AM
I had intended to write a serious election related post, but I am more comfortable writing from my current experiences, and how they relate to present situations...SO...Earlier this week, after a Monday afternoon intense high school football practice, I found it necessary to accompany my youngest son to the nearby hospital emergency room where he was treated for severe dehydration...Now, I was blessed to have nine children, and many a sleepless night was spent at the bedside of an ailing child...but none was like the anguish I experienced the other night watching Jared go through the painful effects of dehydration...headache, trembling, … (8 comments)

frans friday forum: PROLIFERATION OF POVERTY...Fran's Friday Forum...!!! - 09/21/12 07:31 AM
With the total dissolution and evaporation of more than 7 trillion dollars in wealth, the Obama administration is close to achieving its goal to redistribute wealth among the poor...!!!The problem is that there is much less wealth left to redistribute...BUT...What the socialist foxes in the HenWhite House HAVE done is proliferated poverty so that, instead of raising incomes in the US for all, they have succeeded in CREATING MORE POOR PEOPLE...Yet, many polls indicate that the majority of the electorate approve of these actions and are willing to put up with it for another 4 years...IN FACT, President Obama has said … (26 comments)

frans friday forum: Fran's Friday Forum...Barack...PROPHET IN CHIEF...??? - 09/14/12 07:36 AM
Four years ago then U.S. Senator Barack Obama campaigned for President under the mantle and mantra of HOPE AND CHANGE...!!!He was overwhelmingly elected in 2008, and his message has proven to be APOCALYPTIC...!!!Yes, what we needed then and what we still need now is HOPE AND CHANGE...!!!
 Unfortunately, the hope and change that our current President has brought us is NOT the HOPE AND CHANGE our Country needs...We can say he is SEER IN CHIEF, or we can call him ORATOR IN CHIEF, or even EMPTY CHAIR IN CHIEF...
NO WAY, however, should he become PROMISER IN CHIEF...!!!SINCE on all other counts he … (15 comments)

frans friday forum: CONVENTIONal WISDOM...Fran's Friday Forum...!!! - 09/07/12 07:54 AM
Before anyone reads this post let me confess that much of what you will read is anecdotal on my part inasmuch as a fair number of speakers at BOTH REPUBLICAN AND DEMOCRATIC CONVENTIONS put me to sleep...!!!I do have some interesting observations based on what I DID SEE AND HEAR...I will share these with you in no particular order except the order in which my memory recalls them...***Many speakers at the DNC sounded ROMNEYESQUE***Vice President Biden’s choking up when speaking of our beloved troops across the globe seemed Phony to me...JMHO***Four more years should be granted based on the record, not … (16 comments)

frans friday forum: REPUBLICAN CONVENTION TIDBIT...Fran's Friday Forum...!!! - 08/31/12 07:20 AM
I guess you can call me a purist, but the only coverage of the REPUBLICAN CONVENTION in Tampa that satisfied my needs was C-SPAN...What I was searching for during the convention was any wisdom which came from the plethora  of speakers offered at the gathering...I was not disappointed...neither in the many bits of wisdom I was able to gather nor in my choice of where to watch and listen...FOX, CNN, MSNBC, CNBC, or even NPR just weren’t cutting it...!!!This was not the time for commentary, sound bytes, talking points or the like...I wanted pure, unadulterated, unslanted, direct from the mouths and hearts and … (11 comments)

With two political conventions taking place in the next two weeks, our Country on the precipice of economic and social disaster, and the present campaign a symbol of everything a good moral person hates...WHERE IS GOD IN ALL THIS...???There are politicians, perhaps well meaning ones, who sincerely believe that socialism is the answer to all our nation’s ills...Some of these politicos claim to believe in God, some wear their religion on their sleeves, some may be agnostics or even atheists, and some even quote scripture to justify their beliefs...This is THE POINT of this post...EVIL EXISTS IN OUR WORLD...!!!The forces behind … (30 comments)

This post is for all my democrat friends who are looking for a graceful and face-saving way to vote for Mitt Romney...!!!First of all, I abhor racism...in all its ugly forms...!!! And since I have many black American friends that should be embarrassed by the 95% of Black Americans who voted for Obama last election...Here is a way out of a rock and a hard place dilemma, and a way to save face...Now presumably and without profiling or unfair characterization, most Black Americans are democrat...AGREED...???And since it is a normal democrat tool to demonize an opponent, ‘shoot the messenger’, and dodge … (8 comments)
