For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places. ---Ephesians 6:12

"The age of casual Catholicism is over; the age of heroic Catholicism has begun. We can no longer be Catholics by accident, but instead must be Catholics by CONVICTION." ---Fr. Terrence Henry TOR, Franciscan University of Steubenville

More Than A Little Pretentious, Obama

Hmmm. If this is really Barack Hussein Obama's new campaign logo then add PRETENTIOUS to his list of lovable traits.

The Latin vero possumus loosely translates into "yes we can," but most of his supporters, not knowing much Latin (as hardly do I) might think it means "a possum in every pot!"--a very catchy slogan indeed. This could actually work to Obama's advantage when courting voters from the southern states where possum is not only a delicacy, but is also thought to have therapeutic properties, via possum snout.

The emblem in the middle is supposed to be a sunrise, right? Obviously it's an attempt to copy or plagiarize Ronald Reagan's Morning in America. But what it looks like to me and perhaps most conservatives, (those of us who are so fearful of an Obamanation that we will wholeheartedly campaign for McCain) is a SUNSET suggesting the twilight of America's greatness should we elect B.H.O.. (campaign logo borrowed from LGF)

As an alternative Latin motto for the Messiah's seal, I suggest, "Non Gradus Anus Rodentum!" (Not worth a rat's patootie.)

Excellent post! I'm seeing variations of this symbol, the red/white stripes all over things. I work at a document imaging co. and on certain medical records this symbol is showing up, and now on yard signs for a mayoral candidate in our fine city...hmm. Makes one think the sun is definitely setting. God is going to give us what we voted for and though it's going to be one hard fall, the "housecleaning" was indeed necessary. As through the ages, schisms and persecutions have cleaned the House and made the faithful that much more strong, so strong that like all of our Saints before us, they died FOR THE FAITH and FOR THE EUCHARIST, and with this communism infiltrating the land at breakneck speed, I'm praying for our leaders, and for conversion of sinners. It's got me to Adoration every day and praying more than ever, so in a sense, the 'remnant' is keeping watch and hopefully, I'll be in that remnant, come what may, and like Maximilian Kolbe and so many many other saints, will live and die for Jesus, too. God bless you.
