Politics is horse racing, not Holy Orders.

Politics is horse racing, not Holy Orders.

Into the priesthood: Newly ordained priests stand at St Peter's Basilica today during the mass of ordination presided over by Pope Francis

Were the Americans to reflect on that difference, perhaps their distemper at the antics of the middle class political social strivers would be less incendiary.

Gentlemen–cool out, stop acting so crazy–calm down!!!–there are ladies present in our group.

~~

Politics is a horse race–nothing more–politicians are race horses–nothing more.

~~

Learn how to handicap horse races and, maybe, someday, you will come to understand politics–if you must–although, I caution you, it’s pretty dry stuff compared to fun stuff..

~~

Political campaigns always become feverishly hyperbolic at this point in the horse race–in youth, long, long ago, I used to ride these race horses. Horse racing and race riding are a business. To my best knowledge, the rest of you are spectators at the races. Cheer for your horse, loudly and long, but don’t get too emotionally attached.

~~

This is Washington summer–it’s very HOT–one of God’s greatest gifts to His Children is central air conditioning–make regular and ample use of it.

~~

I am happy that all here gathered have ready access, with the mere flip of a switch, to that gift of God in the haze and beastly heat of this Washington summer.

~~

Let’s try to be cool of body and cool of head–not simply in deference to the ladies, but also to keep the gentlemen from stroke, heart attack and seizure brought on by our excessive, overdrawn for effect, exaggeration in our missives concerning tomato–throwing politics.

~~

American politics–is a subject which–frankly–is neither very interesting nor very important.

~~

Interesting, important, things include, first off, well-girls–they are pretty and bouncy and they are legions in their numbers–more so, they are demonstration, prima facie, of the existence of God Jesus.

~~

Consider other things as well–very good champagne, similarly, superlatively fine cognac, sports of various sorts, nice suits from London, great ties from France, shoes from Milano, race horses–the Spa at Saratoga is very soon open right now–staring all the pretty people and far prettier horses!!

~~

On the far coast, Del Mar by the sea, the Saratoga of the west, is likewise in full swing. Consider, vanilla ice cream, bar-bee-ques on the brick courtyard, great novels, Newport for the Regatta, injectable pain killers, spectacular hats from James Lock & Co, Hatters, London, sailing on the seas, vintage Burberry’s umbrellas, Paul Stuart of New York, air conditioning.

~~

Try to relax and take time to enjoy these cool and happy presents sent postage paid from Providence above.

I’ll say, Good morning, ladies. I’ll say, Good morning, gentlemen.

Pax Vobis,

      • Mortal man holds to fleeting, feeble and fallible opinion.  God holds to immutable fact.

      • It is my assessment that America is dying inside, being eaten away by the horror of the collapse of the middle orders, the attendant societal and religious values and customs of those orders and the ubiquity of war making for dubious purpose.

      • The rich man ought not be taxed at all~~he ought be compelled to employ and train the poor man~~directly~~personally.

      Saint Jane Frances de Chantal Catholic parochial school, called, by anyone of any background, simply: “Chan~al,” a place where, of an autumn day in 1957, school,  for me,  began and ended in the first convening of the first grade in which a tiny nun, one Sister Dom Bosco, appeared before me, just behind the window appearing at far left of this photograph, and piped out this: “I may be small, but so then, is the Atom Bomb.”
      ~~
      My determination to escape school commenced immediately on hearing about this Atom Bomb business and took 16 dicey and arduous years to finally accomplish.~~

      “Jean-Marie Le Pen is a friend. He is dangerous for the political set because he’s the only one who’s sincere. He says out loud what many people think deep down, and what the politicians refrain from saying because they are either too demagogic or too chicken. Le Pen, with all his faults and qualities, is probably the only one who thinks about the interests of France before his own.”~~
