Give it a shot!!! Don't tell them you saw it in this blog!!!!
It's a giant wave going coast to coast and I don't believe there's no way to stop it!!!
The States are truly going to have their first Black President.
I must add that he might not survive the election because when I rode my Ten-Speed across in 1978? Racism was very much alive in those days.
The question is this? Will a racist get Obama???
If this happens? It would be chaos in the States.
This is a Blogger who spoke his mind and was jailed.
This morning, I had a little chat with a member of the Liberal Party and the same action might happen to me?
This is getting really dirty but freedom of speech must remain alive in Le Nouveau-Brunswick.
I know what the Liberals plans are and truly stay tuned!!!

Who would have believe that the day would arrive that I would support a talk show on Rogers?
Trevor is sure a better guy than this jerk!!!!
This is the first time since Rogers took the sad step of denying New Brunswickers the right to call in but I'll watch the whole show tonight at 8:00pm!!!!
I wonder if Trevor will be insulted????

Saint Raymond of Peñanfort
Matthew 4: 12-17; 23-25
When Jesus heard that John had been arrested, he withdrew to Galilee. He left Nazareth and went to live in Capernaum by the sea, in the region of Zebulun and Naphtali, that what had been said through Isaiah the prophet might be fulfilled: “Land of Zebulun and land of Naphtali, the way to the sea, beyond the Jordan, Galilee of the Gentiles, the people who sit in darkness have seen a great light, on those dwelling in a land overshadowed by death light has arisen.” From that time on, Jesus began to preach and say, “Repent, for the Kingdom of heaven is at hand.” He went around all of Galilee, teaching in their synagogues, proclaiming the Gospel of the Kingdom, and curing every disease and illness among the people. His fame spread to all of Syria, and they brought to him all who were sick with various diseases and racked with pain, those who were possessed, lunatics, and paralytics, and he cured them. And great crowds from Galilee, the Decapolis, Jerusalem, and Judea, and from beyond the Jordan followed him.
Introductory Prayer: My heavenly Father, you made me out of your infinite love. Even though I have failed to love you as a good child should, still you send me gift upon gift. You sent your Son to redeem me and to make me one with you, in and through your Son. You and your only beloved Son sent your Spirit of Love and Truth, the Holy Spirit, to dwell in my heart, mind and body. Open my heart and eyes to all that you have done for me and continue to do for me, so that I will grow in generosity with you, your Church, and all of your children. Perfect me in the fire of your love, and, as you sent your only Son and your most Holy Spirit, send me into this world to set it ablaze.
Petition: Jesus, help me to open my heart to you.
1. The True Light Is Here. John the Baptist did all that the Father had asked. Through it all he remained humble. The people thought he was the Christ; however, he would not allow the winds of pride to extinguish the light of truth, so he proclaimed that he was not the Christ. The world rewarded John the Baptist with silence and death. On the contrary, what treasure did God bestow upon him for his fidelity? Acclaim – “Welcome my good and faithful servant” – and eternal life. John was merely the voice; he called people to repent and convert. Now the Word himself proclaims these words. John was a voice in the wilderness. Now the Word that is light and life himself enters the public scene. May the light of Truth open our hearts to the true and everlasting Kingdom.
2. Jesus Preaches with More than Words. Our Lord Jesus went about doing only good: healing the sick, comforting the lonely, forgiving sinners, and preaching the Gospel. Our faith tells us this, and we can visualize it as we read the Gospel. But do we really encounter Our Lord like those who crossed his path 2,000 years ago? I can answer this question by looking at my life: Do I live more and more like Christ, or not? Do I appreciate and thank Christ for all the good he has done in my life? Do I want with all of my heart to be with Christ forever, on earth and in heaven? Where my heart is, there is my treasure. Like Christ, I am called to preach with more than words.
3. People Respond to the Truth. A disciple of Christ can never be discouraged, because people do respond to the Truth, to the Gospel of Jesus Christ. We see this throughout the Gospels and throughout the history of the Church. When our efforts to evangelize seem fall on hard ground, we need to examine how we will respond. Christ commanded us to preach his gospel in word and deed. He demanded that we produce fruit. Christ also said we would do greater things than he did. We also know that Christ has defeated sin and death. Knowing all this, how could we be discouraged by the lack of fruit in our efforts to evangelize? We do the work, and Christ takes care of the rest. It’s that simple.
Conversation with Christ: Lord, you came to save sinners; enter into my life anew on this new day. Remove all fear that I have of you, Lord Jesus. Teach me that you are a God of compassion and that you are meek and humble of heart.
Resolution: I will develop a simple plan to help my parish in its efforts to evangelize.
I woke up early this morning and couldn't sleep. I noticed many people giving their time to help the poor at the Kitchen.
There's a lot of good hearted people in this City!!!!
