    now holds 7 of the 9 supreme court seats and the pope is wearing red prada shoes indicates that suffering for the rest of us in this veil of tears is the new Rx for working class heroes? i write this as a recovering catholic in search of a twelve step program that will help me deal with my previous addiction to the 12 apostles...  :)
     and i have been trying to recover for 51 of my 64 years.

      about the Catholic church. I am so grateful that I was not brought up Catholic.

      We stopped going to church when I was in high school. The ministers were coming and going thru a revolving door and it was the bottom of the barrel from what my parents shared.

      No one wanted (or still wants) to be located in this cold-snowy- isolated backward part of New York state.

      I feel for you. And I love what you said in your post that I woo-hooed.

      It would seem that the politicians and even some citizens in our great land have taken leave of their senses. I keep waiting for someone to stand up and proclaim: The emporer isn't wearing any clothes.

      Why do I feel that the only place we think this way is right here on Daily Kos.

      I know gals younger than myself who thought Sarah Palin was a great choice for VP. They thought she was down to hear and cheeful and really together. OMG, excuse me while I grab a vomit bag.

    •  yea, and it also (0+ / 0-)

      worries me that the church seems to be edging ever closer into our 'state' affairs.

      why, how, what is going on?

      Doesn't anybody care?
      How do we stop it?
