How would you like to have eight years of your life taken from you? Well, that is exactly what the house Republicans are doing. They did everything possible to obstruct President Obama and run out the clock on his first term. Having lost the 2012 election, they again have chosen to put politics and special interests above serving the people they were elected to serve. Rather than govern responsively, they are again using every stall tactic possible to run out the clock one day at a time on the President’s second term. Meanwhile, our cities are crumbling, our children are suffering, and the middle class is stagnating. Sure it is important not to saddle our children with debt. How is that worse than taking eight years from their lives? We can’t wait until 2016. They must go in 2014!

Peter was married and had a family. Most Catholics don’t know that Peter was never even in Rome. Paul was in some of his journeys but never Peter.

When they clean up the buildings on top of the ground, do they remove what is under them? Love Canal is a lesson for us all.
