The croniest of crony capitalists. The self-created protagonist of one of the strangest, most sinister sagas in twentieth century politics and business. A lifelong master of subterfuge, lies and fraud, Hammer portrayed himself as a friend of kings and mankind in general, the essential traits of a Marxist overlord who loves the faceless masses [for the far-reaching power they can provide him) and loathes people.

“With officers laid off and furloughed, simply calling 911 and waiting is no longer your best option,” Clark adds. “You can beg for mercy from a violent criminal, hide under the bed, or you can fight back. But are you prepared?”
This item appeared in a London newspaper in March 1914: “In the view of the National Peace Council there are grave objections to presenting our boys with regiments of fighting men, batteries of guns, and squadrons of ‘Dreadnoughts.’ Boys, the Council admits, naturally love fighting and all the panoply of war...but that is no reason for encouraging, and perhaps giving permanent form to, their primitive instincts. At the Children’s Welfare Exhibition, which opens at Olympia in three weeks’ time, the Peace Council will make an alternative suggestion to parents in the shape of an exhibition of peace toys.”
Hell of a title for a post isn´t it?
Of course, those aren´t my words. My words are usually rather inadequate, inarticulate, ineffective I think in getting across the point and so more often than not, I turn to others who I think make the point I´d like to make better than I can make it.
A few days ago, I expressed my frustration with folks who seem complacent about pursuing and exercising their faith.
Today, I find Fr. Longenecker dealing directly with that complacency in what I consider to be an excellent piece...

In the next leg of President Obama´s perpetual campaign, he and Vice President Biden plan to hit the road and tour the country pushing their new gun ban ideas as the political season heats up.
