A Boondoggle? ""? You Decide!

Transparency 2.0

President Obama has made Internet-enabled government transparency a cornerstone of his administration, but there hasn't been much talk about the information technology needed to pull it off.

Well, the time has come. The White House's vision for transparency is clouded with numerous technological hurdles, and agencies right now are making decisions that will determine whether this effort makes government more open or becomes another costly federal IT blunder.

Definition of Boondoggle

A couple of items from Herescope - THE MATHEMATICS OF THE MECHANICS

Mathematics emerged into scientific prominence during the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries through men such as Sir Isaac Newton (1642-1727), Blaise Pascal (1623-1662), and Galileo Galilei (1564-1642), who employed mathematics to better understand and give description to God’s majestic universe.

They believed that God had supernaturally created the universe and continued to providentially preserve it, and through mathematics they were able to describe how through natural laws God governed the universe. The acknowledged progression was natural laws derived from supernatural acts. This understanding that God created and maintains the universe by His sovereign working through supernatural power and natural laws is fundamental to the Christian faith.


When the theologian says that “the chief end of man is to glorify God and enjoy Him forever,” this is an all-inclusive statement. Mathematics is but a tool that man can employ to help him understand and describe the physical world. When divorced from God, man becomes divorced from the source of reality; he becomes lost amidst the universe, with his ultimate demise being assured. All men, mathematicians included, who reject God will see their worlds crumble and come at last to nothing. Thus Laplace on his deathbed was forced to admit that in the end, “Man follows only phantoms.”[8] While mathematics aids in describing the universe in which we live, mathematics cannot account for the existence of it. After all, why is there something and not nothing? But those who choose to follow the God of the Bible will find that beyond human calculations there is a solid foundation that will stand for all eternity, the Lord Jesus Christ. Through the study and application of mathematics, the natural revelation of the wonders of God’s creative and sovereign power ought to humble us before His majesty.

While we were distracted.....

MSNBC's Rachel Maddow on President Obama's speech last week....very surprising.

Dire consequences for all of us per Pres. Obama's speech-- "PROLONGED DETENTION" - "Preventative Imprisonment" --FOR A POSSIBLE FUTURE CRIME!? (Remember Fr. Weslin at ND?)

"And so, going forward, my administration will work with Congress to develop an appropriate legal regime so that our efforts are consistent with our values and our Constitution."

Pay attention to the entire speech...(MY DISCLAIMER: While, I know he is speaking about GITMO...and terrorists...let US NOT forget the DHS -"Right-wing Extremist" Memo!)

Please, remember in your prayers, all those that have offered the greatest sacrifice...their life...for all of us.
The Lord's Prayer
Our Father, who art in heaven, hallowed be Thy name. Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread and forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us. And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil. Amen.
Hail Mary
Hail Mary, full of grace, the Lord is with thee. Blessed art thou amongst women and blessed is the fruit of thy womb, Jesus. Holy Mary, Mother of God, pray for us sinners, now, and in the hour of our death. Amen.
Glory Be
Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit. As it was in the beginning, is now and ever shall be, world without end. Amen.
Eternal rest grant unto them, O Lord, and let perpetual light shine upon them. May their souls and the souls of all the faithful departed, through the mercy of God, rest in peace. Amen.

Our Dear Blessed Mother

Our Dear Blessed Mother - Our Lady, Help of Christians

Our Lady, Help of Christians

Prayer to Our Lady Help of Christians

by Saint John Bosco

Most Holy Virgin Mary, Help of Christians, how sweet it is to come to your feet imploring your perpetual help. If earthly mothers cease not to remember their children, how can you, the most loving of all mothers forget me? Grant then to me, I implore you, your perpetual help in all my necessities, in every sorrow, and especially in all my temptations. I ask for your unceasing help for all who are now suffering. Help the weak, cure the sick, convert sinners. Grant through your intercessions many vocations to the religious life. Obtain for us, O Mary, Help of Christians, that having invoked you on earth we may love and eternally thank you in heaven. Amen.

EWTN - Fr. Anthony Mary, M.F.V.A. - Homily
