    Personal problems again

    I need your prayers again please. I am allergic to one of my pain medications as I have broken out in hives in places, in other places welts come and go that are very itchy. I see my doctor Monday. Getting in and out of cars is proving painful to my hip creating problems for me with mobility over the following 24hrs roughly. I THINK I have decided to suspend Saturday Vigil Mass until I have some sort of improvement - the same goes for St Vinnies in the parish. I feel as if my way of life is coming apart and I need to find a new one. Perhaps closer to the problem is that I don't know where on earth I am just now - and with no idea when hip replacement surgery will be done. At times I am struggling against depression. Our pp is on extended leave due to his own health problems. But as soon as I can talk with a priest, I will be asking for dispensation where I might feel it necessary from my Sunday obligation. I think the way for me to go just now might be to make decisions at the time, not in advance.......wherever that is possible. Feeling quite vulnerable just now. My SD and I are not getting along well at this point. He has expressed indirectly some concepts with which I cannot agree. Thank you very much for prayer. Laudate Dominum - Fiat Voluntas Tua

    Well, here's one example: supposedly, when campaigning for the border wall, he mentioned we needed to stop the rapists, thieves, druggies, etc. The media spun that to mean, "Trump says all MEXICANS ARE CRIMINALS" I blame all the division and rise of white supremacy on the media themselves. Not so much Trump. Trump reminds me of Pope Francis in that they both speak off the cuff remarks that are interpreted however your side wants it to mean. In Trump's case, he doesn't stand a chance of saying anything meaningful, not with the Democrat Party branch of the media running 24/7 calumny against him.

    What Happens When Nuns/sisters Leave The Order?

    You just need to be with them as they journey through and process the many emotions that are going through ....to walk with them as they figure out their next steps, grieve (most commonly), and deal with their own personal feelings, etc. As a SD I can tell you that most whatever you say will be taken the wrong way. Just let your friend know that you will be there for her in whatever capacity she needs you to be. That you will be available to her when/if/how she needs you without overlaying your need to be helpful, compassionate, wise, etc. Most women who have left or who have been asked to leave desperately need their "space" to process and "own" their feelings, and that can present itself in a variety of ways. Often when saying the "wrong" or inappropriate thing, you can exacerbate their emotional stress -- and I won't go into what that might be as they differ from woman to woman. Just be present.......and pray for them......not your will, not their will, but His will be done.

    Donald Trump and Racism

    No. I'm not comparing Trump to Nazis for rhetorical effect. There is a literal, historical connection in ideology. Trump is a nationalist, as was Hitler. Trump is NOT a Nazi, but he is a nationalist. His election coincided with a resurgence of nationalism and authoritarianism globally, in France, in the UK, in Russia, in Turkey. Nationalism is always a fundamentally racist ideology, it lives on fear and defensiveness. There's a reason why techology innovation occurs in somewhere like Silicon Valley and not, say, West Texas. I have nothing against provincial people, but their worldview is closed in on itself, they are not open to the exchange that the modern world is built on. Enter Trump. He knows that there is still a big part of this country that is essentially provincial. He's not part of that world, but he understands it the way a TV broadcaster understands people who watch soap operas and reality TV. Trump has created a false, nationalist propaganda (dressed up as patriotism) that he knew would sell to white, Christian, conservative America, and he mixed it in with business savvy and knowing how to work the media PR. This is the problem with Trump. He is a greasy pimp who has been so long in the system he mastered it. And now he has an army and a government at his fingertips. He's the democratic version of Kim Jong Un, a little fat man with a big mouth and a small brain.

    The fact that he says stuff like "good people on both sides", when one of the sides is Nazi's and White Supremacists. It's a dumb thing to say, and in my opinion, only something someone who is racist would say. I cannot understand how a non-racist person would make a statement like this. He never says stuff like that when talking about ISIS. I'm sure he doesn't believe there are "good people on both sides" when one side is ISIS. Only a person who sympathizes or can justify the actions of the other side would use this type of language.

    If the Left is not a fundamental threat to black and brown people then why does the Left target and murder such a disproportionately high number of Black and Brown American children? And why is aborting and limiting the number of African children also so very important to the American and Global Left? I believe the Left is trying to get blacks and browns to commit generational suicide with abortion and turn whites against them with their politics.

    NEW Paradox album...

    Hi phamily, I wanted to let you all know about a project I have in the works: http://www.pledgemusic.com/projects/grayscale Basically, I’m conducting a "crowdfunding" campaign to help cover costs associated with completing a hip hop album. The content on the album is largely inspired by my experience among the students at the Catholic high school where I teach Theology. It's a somewhat nerve-racking experience, because the platform works on an "all-or-nothing" funding model, meaning that if I don't meet my fundraising goal in the set amount of time, I don't get a dime (and nobody gets any of the things they ordered, either). As such, I have a few requests, in order of importance: 1) Please pray for me, my family, and this endeavor. While your prayers are always welcomed, I anticipate the duration of the campaign to be an especially busy/stressful time, so putting in a good word with the "Man Upstairs" for us will be incredibly appreciated any time over the next 60 days. 2) Please consider sharing about the campaign any way you see fit: e-mails, social media posts, smoke signals, etc. 3) Please consider becoming a "Pledger." Because of the "all-or-nothing" model, even a pledge at the lowest level ($10, which gets you a copy of the album, a sticker, and a decal) could tip the scales to release the full funds which will allow me to make this project a reality. This is my first time trying something where I feel like I need to "sell it," and I have to admit it feels a bit awkward. However, I really do believe in the message of hope and compassion that runs throughout the album, so I want to be able to make it available to anyone who might benefit from hearing that message. God bless.

    the civil war was about slavery, plain and simple. if you look at the reasons stated for the war, it always went back to slavery. only in the abstract was it about states' rights, and there has been a misinformation campaign to retrospectively say that's what it was about. research history and you will see the truth. so do we want statutes of men who led the fight for slavery? maybe in the same way we'd want a statue of hitler, maybe at a museaum, but not out in public spaces of honor.

    Yes. His "education" was in the New York tabloids. He knows the media will always bite if you give them something to talk about. Any news is better than no news. But he's not dumb about it. He has to get bigotry across without being overt about it. He can do the teleprompter thing for a day or two, but at heart he's a New York sleazeball with a tabloid mentality, like yesterday in Phoenix riling up a crowd about pardoning Sheriff Joe Arpaio in Arizona. Just days after Charlottesville he's pardoning a symbol of racial profiling, a sheriff who was convicted in court.

    And 16 years later we remain in Afghanistan fighting the longest "war" in American history to avenge a crime carried out mostly by Saudis, and none of whom came from Trump's travel ban countries. Meanwhile, Trump wants to keep bad hombres out while rich people snort coca in his hotels and their palm tree lined mansions. Now that poor whites are dying of opiods and depression it's an epidemic. When blacks are dying it's a matter for law and order. Nationalism is nationalism, whether it's national socialism (Nazi) or national capitalism. Hitler wasn't a socialist, he was a nationalist, like Trump. Socialism is an international idea.

    Have you made a "Come & See"?

    Sister, I like the idea of staying a few days more than just a weekend at your convent for "come and see." The DSMME has a 24 hour retreat. For me, that was okay, I enjoyed it and entered that community, but at the same time, I had been with the Nashies a few years before, so I knew the charism of the Dominicans and I knew what I was getting into. I'm not sure 24 hours is enough for others. So, maybe allow girls to stay a few more days than just a weekend, and let them shadow you in your apostolate and of course your prayer life. I think they could get a very good idea about the community from doing this.

    This is part of Trump's propaganda. And it's not unique to him, it's what all populist demagogues and authoritarian autocrats do, they present themselves as being above the system and the establishment and they create the illusion that they have a direct link to "the people." You can see this all around the world. Hugo Chavez in Venezuela, Fidel Castro in Cuba, Putin in Russia, etc. Trump is playing politics in the tradition of the Latin American caudillo who rides in to save the people from the powerful by taking power in the name of the people. The only difference is Trump is a cartoon buffoon...he's only playing the part, he doesn't have the balls to actually do what Putin does, and he probably wouldn't get away with it anyway, American democracy, for all its problems, still has the strongest system of institutional separation of powers. Trump will be gone in 4 or 8 years, he can't change the constitution like other despots do. He ain't draining nothing except the wallets and brains of the American people. Why do you think he ran Miss Universe? Because he's a connossieuer of women parading in bikinis? No, because it gave him a cover to travel the world and hobnob with Russian oligarchs and other underworld scum, but they had the pretext of respectability, they were just businessmen. Trump draining the swamp? The only swamp he'll ever drain is the Everglades to sell more property to rich old white people. He doesn't need the American swamp, his connections are in the global swamp. He doesn't care about DC or American institutions. He hates the free press even more than he hates Congress, because he's like the Tsar of Russia, he wants people to see him as beyond institutions, answering only to "the people." But there's a reason we have institutions, because otherwise we have a political system like we have now, with one demagogue playing everyone for the sucker and laughing all the way to the bank.

    Donald Trump and Racism

    Shame on the politicians who are trying to push blame on President Trump for what happened in Charlottesville, VA. That’s absurd. What about the politicians such as the city council who voted to remove a memorial that had been in place since 1924, regardless of the possible repercussions? How about the city politicians who issued the permit for the lawful demonstration to defend the statue? And why didn’t the mayor or the governor see that a powder keg was about to explode and stop it before it got started? Instead they want to blame Trump, for everything. Really, this boils down to evil in people’s hearts. Satan is behind it all. He wants division, he wants unrest, he wants violence and hatred. He’s the enemy of peace and unity. denounce bigotry and racism of every form, be it black, white or any other. ” pray for peace and for all those impacted by Saturday’s tragedies.

    Donald Trump and Racism

    People have lots of motivations for what they do. I'm not a psychologist. But we all live in objective, material contexts. I don't need to listen to a random Southerner to understand the South and the forces of history, society, culture, etc. that make the people there. I don't need to get to know a Trump supporter in order to understand how Trump is duping them. Politics is a broad platform to symbolize certain messages, to speak to certain demographics, to encapsulate certain values, etc. Not every Trump supporter worships the man, but they don't have to. That's the function of politics, to separate the man from the symbol. That's the purpose of statues, to separate the man from the myth. No statue is "history," it's myth-making. When Trump says "make America great again," he is creating a vacuum that people of a certain disposition can fill however they want. For neo-Nazis, they can project Nazism onto it. For rural patriots, they can project god and guns onto it. For people out of work, struggling, afraid of what's going to happen to the economy, they can project xenophobia and isolationism onto it. Trump isn't stupid. These people are ALL his base, and he created a propaganda campaign that could reach them all while still keeping a veneer of mainstream respectability to appeal to Joe the Plumber in New York who doesn't care about politics but just wants to see some change. But, Trump chooses his moments wisely...he purposely waited a few days to condemn the white supremacists in Charlottesville by name, and then he framed it into a moral equivalence, so that Charlottesville would just be an unfortunate incident, a moment of passion on all sides, because if everybody is to blame then nobody is to blame. He needs plausible deniability. He sends messages in code, because his goal is to appeal to the worst in everyone without appearing to do so. Recently, he told police not to worry about banging suspect heads. [insert laugh track]. Of course, he can say he was just joking, just speaking hyperbolically. But he knew exactly what he was doing. The message is clear: get all these blacks and browns off the streets however you have to. We'll make sure we lock 'em up and throw away the key. wink wink nudge nudge. Charlottesville was great for Trump, because now he can make a statement condemning violence on all sides, because what he really wants is law and order. The same tactic was used during the Civil Rights movement. Bull Connor in Alabama would round everyone up in the name of law and order and condemn outside agitators for coming into his state. He couldn't appear to be a segregationist, he had to appear like a guy just doing his job, protecting the law. God resisteth the proud. Trump's downfall is coming, as sure as the day is long.

    Hi! I hope things are going better for you now. But I thought that I would just throw my 2 cents in as well. You are about to make a major life change and so it naturally will be hard. So keep things simple and be gentle with yourself when you aren't able to meet all your goals. You aren't going to be perfect and the community is not expecting you to be perfect. Just try to keep up with what you were doing before. I agree with Francis Clare about talking to the formation directress she can probably give you the best advice about what to do (and what to avoid)

    You're welcome to voice your opinion. I disagree on most points, particularly the sweeping allegations of what "really" are the motivation and agendas for large groups of people. Either of us may be mistaken, but that is the purpose of civil and public discourse. Unfortunately, it's easy to purposely or innocently malign other's intent and meaning with assumptions and condemnation instead of asking and uncomfortably listening. if you think it's just American Plantation hegemony, read vee's first link to a reformed white supremacist from the U.K. I personally feel most Confederate monuments are a mistake and partially perpetuate and idealize a culture that institutionalized race oppression. I also feel that many non-racists see them as a monument to their identity and speak as resistance against oppression by the victorious outsiders. They should be removed or at least relocated away from Government property. Respect for the different perspectives of what these monuments represent is needed so that opportunists don't seize the opportunity to create conflict for power games or sell advertising for autos and fall fashions. Heck, with the many possibilities for topics, maybe dUSt swirled up a Trump controversy because this board has been practically comatose.

    Lincoln was from Illinois. Even he, in the Lincoln-Douglass debates, didn't think blacks and whites could live together equally, had to be separate but equal. The mayor of New Orleans supports the removal of the monuments, not New Mexico and Wyoming. But, Jackson was a US President, not a member of symbolic state that fought against the United States. Even though Jackson was a despicable person and probably should be pulled down. Regardless, I don't have any particular feeling about the statues. I think it's best as a local matter, but, the "states rights" rhetoric is part of the legacy of segregation and the Confederacy. Trump wants to "make America great again," but the old Confederacy/Segregation ideology is fearful of national citizenship, which is why they frame everything as a state and local matter. They don't want Washington telling them they can't push blacks to the back of the bus, or they don't want Washington sending in federal troops to allow a black man to register at Ole Miss, as is his right as a citizen. When Trump says "make America great again," what he really means is make white America great again. Southerners loved America as long as the white man ran everything locally...once you had people in Washington or Boston talking about abolition and freeing slaves and helping black people vote and changing the institutional racism of prisons and economies...then, that's when the Confederacy is born. It's a Confederacy for white supremacy. That's what the Confederacy is. I wasn't here for Katrina, but we had a flash flood recently and the canals were overflowing. 12 years since Katrina, same problems. Would anybody cry if another Katrina wiped this city out? It's only black people. I'm not even being sarcastic. New Orleans is a sad place. A place for white people to come and party, and for black people to hustle out a living. All the white people who can/could flee to the suburbs. They want nothing to do with New Orleans. And if you go up the road, you have Angola Prison to deal with all the blacks. It's really a vicious, brutal city, though that's not entirely because of American racism...this was a big port back in the 1800s with a legacy from the old Spanish/French/Colonial orders, like the racial castes in South America.

    I don't think he's a racist. Racists are (generally) uneducated, stupid people. Which is not the same as poor people. You can be rich and stupid. Trump, unfortunately, is rich and smart (not intelligent, but smart). This is all a reality TV show for him. He's the host. He knows how to play the game, like Jerry Springer. He tapped into a vein of fear and loathing and rode it to the White House. He doesn't hate black people. He doesn't even think about black people. Or white people. If you ever saw the movie Running Man with Arnold Schwarzenegger, Trump is Richard Dawson, denouncing Fake News because he, literally, is fake news. Trump is the president of the Facebook age, of online content where it seems like you're getting what you voted for, but what you're really getting is content fed by billions of dollars of advertisers deciding what to show you. He knows how to play the game, his comments about Charlottesville are all calculated, he knows he can't come out and be overtly trollish, but he wants to send backhanded messages to the rednecks and middle America people and snakehandling Christians...he's one of them, wink wink. He's not one of them, anymore than Hitler was German or Stalin was Russian. Yes. They want their people back on top of history. The Confederacy was not a culture or a people, it's a power structure. There is no such thing as "white people." White is a power structure, not a people or a nation. Racists in the South were often perfectly happy to live alongside black people. They often had a black mammy they loved. But the idea of black people being politically equal, that was what they wouldn't stand for. The Confederacy has gone down in history with King George and the British Empire. It only exists in the American narrative as a figure of oppression and opposition.

I also find it ironic liberals are so triggered by the confederacy because of slavery when these same liberals are quick to defend abortion. Slavery and abortion both dehumanize human beings and both ignore the dignity of their human persons. Liberals have more in common with the confederacy than trump does. That's why I can't take their protests and their calling out trump seriously.

As for the Mexican Judge, I'M HISPANIC and I know EXACTLY what Trump was referring to!! There is a shade of hispanics who put the color of their skin FIRST. This Judge had been active in LA RAZA, look it up. It's another KKK group except the members are brown. Same hate, different color. Republicans hate Trump cos he's not a politician and he's trying to drain the swamp of corruption in D.C., in which Ryan is a huge part of... I know Trump is NO SAINT, he's an imbecile and an idiot and says some really really STUPID things, but he's not the dangerous enemy of the USA that the left portrays him to be. Let him be president for a day! Not one moment have the liberals left him alone! The Russia thing has even fizzled!! Wake up Americans!! This is the LEFTISTS anti-American machine at work here! I wouldn't be shocked if Soros paid those men to portray the KKK and start trouble! He bussed thousands of people to Texas to try and stop our government from enacting pro-life legislation! I know cos I was there and I witnessed it. These thousands took up chants to satan at our state capitol while we prolifers prayed the Rosary!

    #1 The Beast is all riled up because you are entering one of the most badass communities in these United States #2 You're getting all wrapped up in becoming a Saint in 24 hours...don't even try that, you'll go crazy. #3 Once you enter, your Superiors will straighten this out. Well, actually, living an horarium kind of puts all things into place and your disorganized, ruffled self calms and settles down into the beauty of living religious life.
