A Strange New Land

~ OH DEAR.. A ‘Back In My Day’ post from a 1/2 centarian.

Ah, the olden days! Our songs, our dreams and goals, our minds were pondering life & jobs, but usually with dating, fabulously-haired boyfriend-girlfriend, and marriage as the goal. How different from the West in 2017.

The sexual revolution, broken homes, & feminism & biased divorce law & constant texting– all have made it clear to many younger men that hook-ups are barely worth it; relationships very risky, and marriage a non-starter. Many of these kids come from what we used to call broken homes, now.. uh ‘blended families’ or some such euphemistic lie.

Unscientific Survey

Of my younger son and his immediate circle of 10 friends (18-24), only 1 has a current (short term) girlfriend. Others haven’t even been dating for AGES.. all their female friends or co-workers are just that, minus a hook-up here and there. Not with a bang or a whimper– just a “Meh?”

And their wider generation is very much the same… don’t dismiss this, for the family/ marriage/ kids Titanic is long past the iceberg moment.And babies? You’ll have to import people to have them…. you know, like the Khadrs. Or the welfare-people born in another land.

For a post-feminist Christian take on all this, try Dalrock.

The Book

Battle Ready, Cool, and Durable

combatrosary1-1024x443

~ ITEM:I looked at this “masculine and muscular” military rosary, and said to myself, “The men need to have these!!”

~ ITEM: RUGGED ROSARIES® = The spiritual strength, durability, and reliability of the Holy Rosary PLUS the proven strength, durability, and reliability of paracord.

+ + +    + + +    + + +

~ WORD HAS IT that many persons of a popistical sort have no end of problems with their cool prayer-tool: the rosary. Knotted up in tangles; spontaneously breaking into a pocket full of beads and broken wire; just wearing out.. and for Catholic men, having, well, rather girly-looking jewelery in hand.

Well, no more!

Witness two new products for the prayer-warrior in these troublous times: the military paracord rosary, and the World war reproduction rosary (seen at top)! That’s right, actual military parachute cord, able to support up to 550 pounds of weight, and ever-useful in survival, fishing, and emergency situations to tourniquets and the like; and metal bead on chain rosaries given to U.S. Catholic soldiers in two world wars, meant to survive just about anything and everything.. actual military service, travel, hiking, construction sites, rough handling, small children, and more.

For the manly Catholic men out there, both give the lie to the old saying that “rosaries are for old women”, and that they must look like tacky Victorian costume jewelry, fit for a dowager. The para-cord ones are especially suitable for military personnel, and can survive a great deal of rough accidental usage; they can hang off your belt, in your car, off your ruck-sack, or (OK, ladies, you can have one too) in your purse.

Listen TO MC Hammer!

Why? We got to pray, as noted cultural philosopher and performer of musical tunes MC Hammer has noted in one of his songs. As the chaos rises, as the persecution of Christians (especially Catholics) grows under secular regimes, and Jihadi attacks, as out souls thirst for the living God, we need the power, peace, and comfort.. as St. Paul commanded.. “Pray Without Ceasing”. Part of why our civilization is so sick? We’ve ceased to water it, ourselves, or our neighbor and various problems with patient, persistent, and powerful prayer.

Surely Binks has sold his soul for this one? Nope. The WebElf gets no Vatican kickbacks, bribes, inducement, incentive, pay-off, graft, sweeteners, sop, backhander, enticement, hush money, payola, allurement, or corrupting gift for praising up this gear, nor do I own either (yet). I just surf the web, and come across interesting answers to age-old problems, get enthused, and start talking about it online. Squee!!

What Are You Waiting For?

So drop a line to Fr. Richard Heilman and ask about his awesome 1916 Military Combat Rosary and mini prayer-manuals; or over to the paracord people of Cordbands.com’s Rugged Rosaries®, for their wide & interesting line of paracorded holy gear, and other stuffs. They have a lot of different products, scattered over several pages, so check out the entire site if you’re interested.

P.S. Teh Binks loves the Memento Mori’ Skulls Rosary, as seen below.

The Non-Losers

GRAND PRIZE WINNER

With apologies to G&S:

I am the very model of a human right commissioner.
I listen to and weigh in on the claim of each petitioner.
My Weltanshauung’s Left and I want everyone to think like me.
And when they don’t I must say that it is the biggest mystery.

I’m very well acquainted, too, with elements heretical
I understand what activates and keeps them so kinetical.
About “hate speech” I’m well apprised and verging on the Stalinist.
And my deliberations are a fact that they cannot resist.

I’ve swallowed all the Kool-Aid of the Trudeau multi-culti cult
And what you see before you is the ultimate and end result.
In short, like a contemporary Spanish inquisitioner.
I am the very model of a human rights commissioner!

I know our mythic history from way back in the 70s.
I ask the trenchant questions and subject folks to the third degree.
I sat there, stunned, as Ezra’s eloquence hit like a tsunami
And told him he’s entitled to opinions–yes, most “certainly”.

I want you all to think nice thought and always act with politesse
‘Cause if you don’t you must agree we’ll be stuck with an awful mess.
In short, consider me society’s “niceness” conditioner
And heed the very model of a human rights commissioner.

THE FREE-SPEECH MASH (”MONSTER MASH” 😉

I WAS SURFING ON THE WEB LATE ONE NIGHT
WHEN MY EYES BEHELD A SCARY SIGHT
FOR RICK WARMAN’S LEGAL BRIEFS BEGAN TO RISE
AND SUDDENLY TO MY SURPRISE

HE SUED LEVANT (HE WANTS TO SUE LEVANT)
EZRA LEVANT (AND SCORE A TAX-FREE GRANT)
BUT WARMAN CAN’T (HEAR HIS PATHETIC RANT)
DEFEAT LEVANT (HE’LL NEVER BEAT LEVANT)

FROM ACROSS THE SERVERS IN THE GREAT WHITE NORTH
TO THE FEDERAL COURTROOMS WHERE DECREES GO FORTH
FREESPEECHERS CAME FROM ALL OVER THE NET
TO HELP PAY OFF EZRA’S LEGAL DEBTS.

THEY DID THE MASH (THEY DID THE FREE-SPEECH MASH)
THE FREE-SPEECH MASH (THEY PONIED UP THE CASH)
THEY DID THE MASH (THEY SHELLED OUT IN A FLASH)
THEY DID THE MASH (THEY MADE A FREE-SPEECH STASH)

THE BLOGGERS WERE FEELING FINE
THE WITNESSES WERE DIVINE
THE GUESTS INCLUDED BINKY
JAY CURRIE AND MARK STEYN

SHIRLENE MC GOVERN ASKED HIM “WHAT’S YOUR INTENT?”-
EZRA RESPONDED, “YOU CAN ALL GET BENT!”
EL-MASRY’S CONGRESS TRIED TO SMASH DOWN THE DOOR
WITH HIS LAW-SCHOOL SHILLS, THE SOCK PUPPET FOUR

FORGET LEVANT (THEY DIDN’T WANT LEVANT)
NO NOT LEVANT (THOSE LAWYERS-IN-SHORT-PANTS)
IT’S SUCH A PAIN (THEY DRIVE US ALL INSANE)
THEY’RE SO INANE (THEY WANT TO BUST MCLEAN’S)

OUT OF THE STAR CHAMBER CAME A CRY
SEEMS WARMAN’S CASH-COW WAS RUNNING DRY
HE OPENED THE DOOR, LET OUT A SCREAM,
AND SAID, “WHATEVER HAPPENED TO MY TAX-FREE MONEY SCHEME?”

WE’RE FIGHTING BACK (AND IT’S A SNEAK ATTACK)
WE’RE FIGHTING BACK (DOWN TO THE LAST MAN-JACK)
WE’RE FIGHTING BACK (WE’LL KICK YOUR ARSES BLACK)
YES WE’LL FIGHT BACK (WE’RE TAKING FREE-SPEECH BACK)

NOW EVERYTHING’S COOL ‘CAUSE WE’RE MAKING A STAND
AND THIS FREE-SPEECH THING IS THE LAW OF THE LAND
FOR YOU, THE LIBERAL, THIS RIGHT WAS MEANT TOO
WHEN YOU SHUT DOWN MY BLOG, TELL THEM LUCY SENT YOU

OR WE COULD MASH (LET’S DO THE FREE-SPEECH MASH)
PLEASE DON’T BE RASH (OR ELSE YOU MIGHT GET SMASHED)
COME ON AND MASH (DON’T START A HATE-SPEECH CLASH)
GET DOWN AND MASH (LET’S DO THE FREE-SPEECH MASH)

Ballade on the Imprudent Utterances of Two Gentlemen

Said Ezra: “Well, it’s newsworthy, for one;
People are dying all around the world.
To what was meant for freedom, and for fun,
These killers flock as to a flag unfurled.
But more than this, such grim invective hurled
By foaming imams at unfettered speech
Confirms what I have long and always held:
That thoughts and words should lie beyond their reach.”

Said Mark: “Of all the subjects of the age,
The long, slow western suicide is one
That should, with Islam’s worldwide rise, engage
The minds of all who toil beneath the sun.
When imams say their battle’s just begun,
When pundits milquetoast tolerance beseech,
It’s vital, then, when all is said and done,
That thoughts and words should lie beyond their reach.”

But no: “That’s only your opinion, sirs;
We live in a plural society,
Where those whose ideas differ much from yours
Can drag you here, before this HRC,
And, laying out their grievances for free,
Suborn you to their feelings, each by each.
And all this done, how then, sirs, could it be
That thoughts and words could lie beyond our reach?”

Dear sirs, you have but thirty days to close
Your mouths, or failing that, perchance, to reach
Some amicable settlement with those
Who’d have your thoughts and words within their reach.

Honourable Mention

Ezra fit de battle of Ottawa, Ottawa, Ottawa;
Ezra fit de battle of Ottawa
And the CHRT came a tumblin’ down.

You may talk about the man of Gideon,
You may talk about the man of Saul,
There’s none like good ol’ Ezra, and the battle of Ottawa.

Up to the walls of Ottawa
He marched with spear in hand;
“Go blow them ram horns,” Ezra cried,

“for the battle is in my hand.”

Ezra fit de battle of Ottawa, Ottawa, Ottawa;
Ezra fit de battle of Ottawa
And the CHRT came a tumblin’ down.

Bonfire of The Sanities

IN A NEWS STORY, journalists sometimes talk about the “ghosts” — that is, the bigger questions or issues haunting a story, but which never get asked. Often, these are of a spiritual nature.

In the current war over rights & Jihad & birthrates, two ghosts demand our attention.

First, the fact that non-serious worldly religious sucks, does not attract people, and has cause the single-greatest decline in church-going after the Black Death, and the Jihad against the Christian East, in that Order. The sewer-swirlings of eco-progressive equalitarian Canadian Anglicanism— Canada’s fastest-shrinking sect– are typical. Not content with watering down the faith through mushy worship and re-written hymns, the church wants on the one hand to bless any old sort of relationship– including what would formerly be considered relational incest, and homosexual behaviour, whilst calling out the lawyers, police and locksmiths on it’s own people.. for the crime of keeping the faith and not jumping on every successive bandwagon that goes by.

P.S. — Despite the proliferation of prizes, there will not be prizes of everyone; this means that some will be winners and some non-winners losers– and that the contest is based on talent, and not all are equally talented in the ways required to win top prizes. Get over it. This website is no part of a liberal paradise, with forced equality of outcomes, and gold stars for everyone, because ‘everyone is special’. Everyone is beloved of God, and a child of God, but that’s a different matter entirely.
