Palm Sunday is here. Passion Week now commences. Easter Sunday is but a week away. Concentrate on those things that matter. Ignore those things that do not matter.~

      Pope Francis Ignores Prepared Homily In Palm Sunday Speech

       VATICAN CITY (AP) — Pope Francis, marking Palm Sunday in a packed St. Peter’s Square, ignored his prepared homily and spoke entirely off-the-cuff in a remarkable departure from practice. Later, he continued to stray from the script by hopping off his popemobile to pose for “selfies” with young people and also sipping tea passed to him from the crowd.

      In his homily, Francis called on people, himself included, to look into their own hearts to see how they are living their lives.

      “Has my life fallen asleep?” Francis asked after listening to a Gospel account of how Jesus’ disciples fell asleep shortly before he was betrayed by Judas before his crucifixion.

      “Am I like Pontius Pilate, who, when he sees the situation is difficult, washes my hands?”

      He sounded tired, frequently pausing to catch his breath, as he spoke for about 15 minutes in his homily during Palm Sunday Mass, which solemnly opens Holy Week for the Roman Catholic Church.

      “Where is my heart?” the pope asked, pinpointing that as the “question which accompanies us” throughout Holy Week.

      Francis seemed to regain his wind after the 2 ½ hour ceremony. He shed his red vestments atop his plain white cassock, chatted amiably with cardinals dressed more formally than he at that point. Then he posed for “selfies” with young people from Rio de Janeiro who had carried a large cross in the square.

      He had barely climbed aboard his open-topped popemobile when he spotted Polish youths. They, too, were clamoring for a “selfie” with a pope, and he hopped off, not even waiting for the vehicle to fully stop, to oblige them. In another moment in the pope’s long tour of the square, the Vatican’s security chief poured herbal mate tea from a thermos, thrust toward the pontiff by someone in the crowd, into a mate cup, also held out by an admirer, and passed the cup to Francis for a sip.

      In a crowd of around 100,000 Romans, tourists and pilgrims, people clutched olive tree branches, tall palm fronds or tiny braided palm leaves shaped like crosses that were blessed by Francis at the start of the ceremony.

      Francis used a wooden pastoral staff carved by Italian prison inmates, who donated it to him. The pope wants to put people on the margins of life at the center of the church’s attention.

      Francis wore red vestments, symbolizing blood shed by the crucified Jesus.

      Holy Week culminates next Sunday with Easter Mass, also in St. Peter’s Square. Many faithful will remain in Rome, while others will pour into the city for the April 27 canonization of two popes, John Paul II and John XXIII. Francis noted that John Paul’s long-time aide, now Cardinal Stanislaw Dziwisz of Krakow, Poland, had come to Rome.

      Francis noted he’ll be making a pilgrimage to South Korea this summer, with the key event being an Asian youth gathering on Aug. 15 in Daejeon.

      "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."~~

Girls in the altogether~

Image

 Holy Sister Don Basco~~clad appropriately for her vocation~~and it turns out likewise so to conform to the new Internet regulations~~released just this evening~~

~~

On the first day of first grade at Saint Jane Frances De Chantal Catholic grammar school, called by anyone of any social background~~CH~NAL~~Paul McKenna, Martin Kane, Patrick Kelley, Eugene O’Neil,Junior and I were seated in the front of our first class when there appeared before our eyes a midget nun~~clad head to feet in black, save for her face~that ringed in white~~the Spainish girls call these Holy nuns penguinos~~who declared, to our astonishment~~
 ~
 “I am Holy Sister Don Basco, I maybe small~~but so is the atom bomb.”
 ~
 That put an end to any and all interest in education for me~~forever.  All I could think was how to get out of that place as soon as I could~~forever~~
 ~
 On the way home from that first grade, all boys mentioned gathered around Paul McKenna~~already deemed by all of us as being what we came to know was called intelligent or something like that.~~
 ~~
 The others demanded to know “What is Holy Sister Don Basco and what is an atom bomb?”~~
 ~~
By Italian blood~~Mia Mommy a Milano~~I was already, at 5 years, set out to be a master criminal~~or so I thought.  Life always disappoints us.~~I went on to work in politics~~same dance~~different dance hall~~
 ~
At events, I pulled Paul McKenna aside from the others and said to him, very brusquely “Fuck that~~how long does it last?”
~
 “How long does what last–Don Basco–a full year, I’m afraid, Begg~~a full year~~
 ~~
 “Not the midget, McKenna~~the school~~how long does it last~~
 ~~
 “All of it?”~~
 ~~
 “Yes, all of it, goddamnit”~~
 ~~
 “We need a smoke,” McKenna told me~~
 ~~
 I’ll pause here to freely admit that I am recognized by nobody as the world’s leading authority on life in America in the 1950’s~~that would be our Mistress Karen~~The Boss~~of whom~~a bit more later~~but I was kicking around back then and I think my experiences were a tad different from those of the Boss~~
 ~~
 Paul McKenna and I headed to our little citadel in a dry creek bed in the wall of which there was a sort of cave~~far from the prying eyes of parents~~
 ~~
 We both fired up a Phillip Morris blunt end and sucked deeply on them~~
 ~~
 “Sixteen years~~if you’re very lucky”~~McKenna said ruefully~~
 ~~
 “Sixteen years?~~sixteen years?~~what did we do~~we’re only 5 years old”~~
 ~~
“If you’re very lucky”
 ~~
 “Very lucky?”~~
 ~~
 McKenna began leafing through a frayed copy of what in those days was called a “Girly magazine”~~and believe me, Gertrude~~it’s wasn’t what you’re thinking~~not in the least~~
 ~~
 The Italians are an impatient people, overbearing, harsh, direct and much desirous of solutions, not conversation~~I swatted the girly magazine away~~
 ~~
 “Yep–sixteen years~if you’re very lucky”~~
 ~~
 “How do we get out of this?”  Italians learn at the breast that “There is a way around everything, McKenna.”~~
 ~~
 “We don’t get out of this~study hard and apply yourself.”~~
~~
“Yeah?~and if I study hard and apply myself?’

 ~~

 “Oh, then you get to stay for 20 or more years”~~

 ~~
 “That’s a reward?~that’s a life sentence!!”~~
 ~~
 “It sure is.”
 ~~
 Years on, McKenna went up to Hav~ad and came home Summa, as~~
 ~~
 “There ain’t no Rs in Hav~ad, wee laddies~~
 ~~
 Years still on later, McKenna, sent out Summa from Hav-ad~~drives a carpet truck and installs carpets in Taos, New Mexico with a 17-year-old Mexican illegal~~so, sorry, Karen~~a Mexican “undocumented”~~we must say these things correctly, at least I’m hearing that all sides tonight~~
 ~~
 What I will say here is that McKenna’s illegal undocumented is a very pretty little thing but looking at bloodstock as I do with a well-trained eye, my fear is that those girls “will run to fat later, McKenna”~~
 ~~
 “Fat?  That’s OK~~I’ll just get another”~~
 ~~
 I’d always thought that it is surely myself and not McKenna, sent out from Hav~vad~~Summa~~who was responsible for the Navy attitude around here~~but of late, I am beginning to wonder on that~~
 ~~
 I wasn’t sent out Summa from anywhere and while I did do my 16 year bit~~it would be most disingenuous of me to say I attended any school~~for as soon as I could climb and pick locks~~I was out of every school I was supposed to be attending~~
 ~~
 I did graduate~~Not Summa~~Not Hav~ad~~and I still can’t sort out how that could be as I was never at school~~ever.~~I think I read that it’s called “grading on a curve.”
 ~~
But then you and I both know the sort of boy Hav~ad gins out these days~~
 ~~
 I’ve likewise held any number of silly little jobs~~and likewise run off from all of them~~lickedity~~spilt~~fast~~
 ~~
 Of late date, convalescent and in dotage, I’ve discovered writing and have a ball doing it but I’m informed tonight that I can neither write, be taken seriously or run for President as some have suggested as~~some say–and truly so~~if I ran I’d come a winner~as I haven’t any sort of hard act to follow there~~
 ~~
 All this, I think, is down to my having not “taken girls seriously”~~
 ~~
 I went to see Ellie Marie~~I always go to see Ellie Marie~although she doesn’t like it very much~~
 ~~
I said “Ellie Marie~~I’m astounded and~~I don’t astound”~~
 ~~
 “I’d never thought girls wanted to be taken as serious”~~
 ~~
 “I’d rather thought that girls wanted to be special.”~~
 ~~
 Ellie Marie takes great pains with me and subscribes to the maxim that “success in life is principally down to taking great pains with other people even if they are people~~perhaps especially if they are people~~you don’t much like”~~
 ~~
 Ellie Marie explained it all~~
 ~~
 “The principal trouble with you John Begg is that you know far, far too much about girls than any boy is ever supposed to know”~~
 ~~
 “Why is that such a problem~after all, I’ve studied them closely for many, many years~~I came back Summa~~I think~~in Girls”~~
  ~~
 “John Begg~you are the most clever writer and people get jealous of that but~~you’ve taken an annoying habit of taking pictures of girls in the altogether”~~
~~
 “In the what?”~~
 ~~
“In the altogether”~~
~~
 “You know, nudey pictures~you won’t be taken seriously by your audience if you persist in showing girls in the altogether.”~~
 ~~
 “Goddamnit Ellie, it’s a base lie~~I’ve never taken or sent out into the world  a single picture of girls in the altogether in my life~~it’s a base lie.”~~
~~

Girls are a scream–they use the expressions~~lingerie model, swimsuit model, soft core pornography and XXX hard-core pornography interchangeably~by which is meant there isn’t any difference between the one and the other one~~that is~~that they are all the same thing~~

~~

I on the other hand think that “if things are different~~well, they just cannot be the same”~~

 ~~
 “You simply can’t do it anymore, dear”~~
 ~~
 “Why not?”~~
 ~~
 “You’ve led a very sheltered and privileged life~~girls are now equal or something like that~~I mean if you’re going to have a go at the White House~~girls will take offense maybe”~~
 ~~
 “What?”~~
 ~~
“I’d make a great President”~~
 ~~
“That’d be different for sure~~How do you intend to do that?”
 ~~
“I’d do just 3 things as President~~
 ~~
Protect the people
Facilitate commerce 
And leave the people the hell alone~~
~~
 “That’s cute but you have to take girls seriously~~they insist upon that I’m afraid, dear–that is if you want to be taken seriously as a Presidential candidate.”
~~
 Taken seriously?~~do you know what is meant in my line when you hear that a Presidential candidate is “taken seriously.”~~
 ~~
 “No, what?”
 ~~
 “It means the Democrats know he’s a loser.”~~
 ~~
“So, you want to clown around as usual?”~~
 ~~
“A clown?~~I ask you~~What do we have in there now?”
 ~~
“Well, I know but girls are very touchy about this equality business these days~very touchy”~~
~~
 “Hang them all~~high~~I don’t give a toss for lesbian girls”~~
~~
“It’s not just lesbians anymore, John~~real girls think they’re equal to boys too~they passed a law about it, I think.”~~
~~
 “NO!!”~~
~~
Same thing for Negroes~~
~~
Leave OFF!!~~
~~~
Fags too~~and lesbians~~
~~ 
“Democrats~~they did all this~~I knew it~~I can smell them from here”~~
 ~~
 “Even some Republican girls want to be taken seriously and be equal or something like that~~to boys.”~~
 ~~
 “Balderdash, Ellie Marie, balderdash.”~~
~~
“Ellie Marie~~God’s children are not all equal~~that’s just the point~~Democrats cooked up that kettle of fish about everybody being equal~~they say that  everybody is equal~~only they’re not all equal~~don’t you remember your G&S~~”If everybody’s somebody~~than nobody’s anybody?”
 ~~
I stood up to have a think~~
 ~~
 “When people ask me where’d the time go~~I mean what have you done with yourself for 62 years, John Begg~~ I say to them~~
~~
 “I’VE BEEN THINKING“~~
 ~~
 “For 62 years?”~~
 ~~
 “Yes, Perhaps, longer.”
 ~~
Aristotle tells us the highest attainment of man is to spend his whole day~~THINKING~~
 ~~
 “Aristotle?”~~
 ~~
 “Yes, he was a teacher or something like that.  Rather well-known, I think.”~~
 ~~
 “I thought you’d detested school?”~~
 ~~
 “Oh, I DID~~Oh, yes, I DID.~~what the devil does school have to do with thinking or with Aristotle?”~~
 ~~
 Ellie Marie, as with most girls, has little time for intense concentration~~except for things she cares about~~which are very rarely the things I care about.  I could tell she was bored with our dialogue and I backed off except to say this~~~
 ~~
 I’d never noticed, not once, that girls wanted to be taken seriously~~I thought that girls wanted to be special~~or am I wrong about that?
 ~~
 All this story inspired~~can that be the right word~~yes, inspired~~ in a classical sense~~by a bit of silly badminton between myself and others respecting  my showing  girly slides of girls being in “the altogether, ” or as someone said~~”being childish by showing their succulent backsides”~~
 ~~
 I must say that I can’t think how Ellie Marie or any of the others in this dance have ever even heard the expression “In the altogether.”  It’s a very antique, and I think is, or at least, was~~a colloquial expression my stepmother and some of her girlfriends used to use~~but my step mother was A Goddamn GERMAN for Christ’s sake~~
 ~~
 Boy A Howdy, now!!~~
 ~~
Girls are so touchy about this that they pay me less than no mind when I say that these girls in my little article are shown looking~~not at their succulent bottoms but~~rather~~over their shoulders back into the past to the Golden Age of America~~the 1950s~~
 ~~
 We pick up the trail of these backsides here~~
 ~~~~~~~~~~~~
_69868778_624_veil
Mohammedan Girls dressed to conform to the new~~very strict dress code put down tonight for all Internet traffic~~
~~
The girls are looking back at a Golden past in America of the 1950’s that you have maybe forgotten, or never knew about, but that I never can forget. As an aside– Who the devil wants to be taken seriously–again–I am not a Democrat–I am a free white man who gets to smile and laugh and say just what I want just how I want to say it–many people want me to run because of my writing–most of which you haven’t looked at–and I thought it an OK idea for a lark–I’ve been encouraged to run all my life and now, in my dotage, I thought hey, now–who could not be a better act than the show now playing–but even little Ellie Marie is constantly line-editing my work with an eye to pleasing the thought police–so I suppose that the money lenders in the temple down here who shout aloud that we are allowed to consider Clinton or Rubio in 2016 and nobody else~~are likely correct as–everybody has bought into the double talk~~and you and Ellie Marie and Wendy and Danny-O will get to pretend that a race between dead 2 horses is a race worth going to see~~

La Vie sans souci~can be pricey~

John Begg 2.014....jpg

Little kids love the life sans souci~~without a care in the world~~

~~
Generally, when one grows up, one finds that the price exacted for living a life sans souci~~without a care in the world~~
 
~~
 
Is a terribly high price~~
 
 
~~
 
The question is laid upon the table here~~as we pretend to live a grown up life sans souci~~without a care or a consequence in the world~~
 
 
~~
 
Does that make you feel gai and free~~

Avec

M. Claude Monet

~

The painting~~of Le Harve~~and the painter~~

~~

M. Monet~~who, most unintendedly, and satirically, gave birth to the art now known to us all as Impressionist French~~the most amazing paintings~~

~

Ever…

~

We ask~~who can say with certitude just~~

~~

Why things happen as they do ?~~

~~

Man today~~

~~

Very certain of himself~~will tell you~~

~~

“I know why things happen”~~

~~

Do you now?~~

~~

Oh?~~

~~

Well, then~~Let’s consider, you and I, the advent of the Impressionist French we all hold so dear~~

~~

Impressionist French art takes its sweet name from a savage, biting, satire~~

~~

And not~~

~~

From~~any sort of pretty picture~~

~~

Consider, dears~~

~~

Claude Monet’s Impression, Sunrise (Musée Marmottan Monet, Paris) exhibited in 1874, gave the Impressionist movement its name when the critic Louis Leroy accused it of being a sketch or “impression,” not a finished painting. and M. Leroy savagely lampooned the work~~as did all the Academy critics of his day~~

~~

How embarrassed those critics must be today, in blue heaven~~

~~

Put to the quick, children~~M. Levy and his Academy friends were not “impressed” with the men who became the Impressionists French~~

~~

Now say, do, what is your impression of all that?

Barack Hussein Obama II~~Communist Trojan horse~~
 
~~
 
The greatest thing that ever happened to the American right-wing~~
 
~~
 
The impressionist painting of the President as a communist has been coldly calculated, opulently well-funded, disciplined, multi-faceted and, as we shall shortly see, both this year and in 2016~~
~~
Remarkably successful~~
 
~~
 
I remember a family friend, an older man and a high operative of the Democratic Party, telling me in summer 2008~~
 
~~
 
“Young Beggs~~if you~~yourself ~~were in the belly of a Trojan horse and were wheeled into my Party headquarters~~
~~
You could not possibly have done as much damage to the Democrats than this boy will now do to us.~~
~~
When this is over, all that will be left of the Democratic Party will be driftwood of the coast of Ireland”~~
 
~~
 
I have watched, now and then, over 5 years time, with keen interest at just how~~
 
~~
 
Prescient~~
~~
Those words were~~
~~
Yes~~that’s it~~
~~
Prescient~~
~~
 
 
I have never heard the incumbent speak~~
~~
I wouldn’t know the cadence of his voice~~were I to hear it~~
~~
I have never read a word he has written~~
~~
I would not know him if I fell over him in the street~~
~~
Most unlike many of my fellow citizens, I’ve no way to knowledgeably gauge~~
~~
Just who the incumbent is~~
~~
 I lay no claim to know his heart’s desires~~
~~
I hear it said that he is evil and a communist and, he may be so~~
~~
I don’t know~~
~~
But then, nobody knows anybody~~
~~
At least not very well~~
~~
How many who have been married on now 50 year can truly say they know anything about their spouse~~
~~
I cannot~~
~~
 
But I do know the American right-wing~~
~~
Very, very well~~
~~
And I can say this with full alacrity~~
~~
The twin sister~~
~~
And heir apparent~~
~~
Of an Impressionist Communisti~~
~~ 
Is~~
~~
An~~
~~
Impressionist Fascisti~~
~~
She, is your~~
~~
Future~~

“A wife does wifely things~a girl does girl things~they are never the same things”~a conversation on a beach on Capri~quite some years ago now~when I was very young~~

I never bet fillies when they’re in season~you see they’re distracted then~by a far higher calling~

 Image

Today, you see, the sole purpose of marrying for humans~~is to make babies~~there simply isn’t any other reason to take such a plunge~~you see that, now don’t you?
~~
Shared privately  –  1:19 PM
~~
John Begg ~~Well, now~~Danny boy–How can we tell if or no animals derive pleasure from sex–after all the girl animal is only receptive when she is in season so that suggests sex for at least the girl animal has only one purpose–to make babies–boy animals are always at the ready–but again that maybe down to instinct so that they are in the mood as the girl comes into season to accommodate her–and all her girlfriends–lucky bastards–mais, que sais-je?~~
~~
With humans it’s funny because I am old enough to remember when young kids were in a rush to marry to get regular sex and the Church taught that sex in marriage was solely to make babies–in the modern times–one certainly doesn’t have to marry to have sex, Jesus knows, so the only legitimate reason to get married in the modern-day is to make babies~~

Where is the man who will lead the Americans out of Babylon? Where is he? Harry and I wonder.We’re curious.Do you wonder~are you curious~where is he?

Image

A new dawn peeks out to the Americans~~bringing with her a leader~~follow her~~our new American Dawn~~

~~

Harry–this is a most interesting expostulation on the peoples of New England and of the French Canadians whose blood I likewise share– and of the Americans themselves in recent times.

~

I too am impressed by the humble and go-get-’em attitude of the American Yankee.
~
While I am of mixed blood lines–to include a dosage of the Southland–Yankee ingenuity and hard work and lack of complaint in adversity has always much impressed me.
~
America could use more of that and America most particularly could use a public recognition in her politics of that humble work ethic and I think that the right, proper and winning horse and jockey to set things right again in this country begins with the sincere statement~ at the starter’s gate~ at the outset~ of a Presidential campaign that:
~
“I am a man of very little importance~now willing to take on a job for the citizens that is largely symbolic and my government will be guided by 3 tenets alone:
~
Protect the people.
Facilitate commerce.
Leave the people the hell alone.”
~
I think such a program would win election without any use of the whip but the issue is~~
~
Where is such a man to ride this winning horse?
~
Is he from Maine, from French Canada, from the Southland~~from where–if I were a younger man with younger arteries I would take on such a campaign~~lamentably I am neither of those.
~
I do hope such a man presents himself to the Americans~~who are rightly and sorely aggrieved at looking on what the city of my birth–Washington–has become–
~
my city is supposed to be a servant but she has become instead a gluttonous monster.
~
Where is that man?

When I was small~oatmeal was punishment food for breakfast~odd thing was~I’ve loved it since leaving Mother’s own milk~and my poor deportment in life traces to my early learned contrivances to ensure I ate oatmeal for breakfast most every morning~

Image

Image

Image

Oatmeal~~food of horses in England and of men home in Scotland~~

~~

Is it any wonder they drink so there?

Image

 Mind you~~The Scot has afternoon treats to compensate for breakfasts boring~~

Image

Later in life we find~~things more complex than oatmeal breakfasts~~for instance, one can’t very well expect the Colonel’s Lady to pay any notice to the extended hand of Colonel’s first-mate~~

~~

Now can one?~~

~~

Thankfully, there’s always another~~

And oatmeal breakfasts~~forever~~

White riot 2014~

White America of good bloodline~~having cast off his own political birthright as a nettlesome burden~~and hired instead~~cheesy front men to dance the soft shoe~~today is left in the public square with only this feeble question~~

 White American men don’t want to dance any more~~and so they job it out to servants~~who in turn get to pretend to be stars~~the trouble is that after a certain period of time~~the servant forgets who pays the piper and calls out the tune~~

It’s been quite a long time since that has happened to me~~

But when it does~~the creature is~~never~~native born~~somehow~~

I can tell in one sentence~~or less~~that a girl is not native-born~~

It is very rarely pronunciation~~

More so~~glitches syntactical~~

Misplacement of words in sentences~~that sort of~~clue~~
