JESUS FORGIVE US!
LORD HAVE MERCY!
PRAY! PRAY! PRAY!
Prayers of reparation- Fatima Prayers
O my God, I believe, I adore, I hope and I love Thee. I ask pardon for those who do not believe, do not adore, do not hope and do not love Thee.
Most Holy Trinity - Father, Son and Holy Spirit - I adore Thee profoundly. I offer Thee the most precious Body, Blood, Soul and Divinity of Jesus Christ, present in all the tabernacles of the world, in reparation for the outrages, sacrileges and indifferences whereby He is offended.
And through the infinite merits of His Most Sacred Heart and the Immaculate Heart of Mary, I beg of Thee the conversion of poor sinners.
O my Jesus, I offer this for love of Thee, for the conversion of sinners, and in reparation for the sins committed against the Immaculate Heart of Mary.
O my Jesus, forgive us our sins, save us from the fire of Hell, lead all souls to Heaven, especially those who have most need of Thy mercy.

That's 1 billion---with a 'B'!

Myths About Implantable Chips
(check the comments too)
Puhllleeeeezzzeee! Give me a break....from the CEO..."it's safe"..."I often am asked if I would consider getting a microchip. In fact, I was one of the first to receive a microchip, in 2002. I cannot feel its presence and usually forget that it's there, but my family and I take comfort in the fact that if I am ever unable to speak in an emergency, my microchip will do all the "talking."'

Mexico, Israel and the European Union-"However, Mexico, Canada and the United States do experience a growing community of interests and, de facto, are undergoing an increasing integration."

"INTRODUCTION: Pope Benedict XVI's recently announced visit to the United States in April is a reminder of the role anti-Catholicism has played in presidential politics.
Notre Dame Professor Richard Garnett traces the political history of anti-Catholicism, the effect of then-presidential hopeful John F. Kennedy's famous 1960 speech to Baptist ministers, and the role of candidates' religious beliefs in today's campaign."
"Thankfully, we live in a time when no one feels the need to take up arms against Benedict's invading armies. We should always be on guard, though, against the temptation to demonize, dismiss or distort the beliefs and aspirations of those whose faith seems foreign to us."
Waller County officials are calling for the Texas Department of Transportation to hold another public meeting in their county on a proposed “superhighway,” after a Jan. 22 meeting was so packed that some people couldn’t squeeze into the meeting hall.
Gov. Rick Perry first proposed the TTC six years ago. If completed as much as 50 years from now, it would roughly parallel interstate highways with up to a quarter-mile-wide stretch of toll roads, rail lines, pipelines and utility lines. Cost of the project has been estimated at approaching $200 billion, and at 4,000 miles or so it would be the biggest construction project ever in Texas.
Thousands of people have turned out for a series of public meetings, including a large crowd last Monday in Bellville.The Texas Transportation Commission’s plan outlines 4,000 miles of superhighway corridors that crisscross the state. Four of those corridors have been identified as “priority corridors” to be constructed first, including the I-69 portion.
