Now time for resolutions

Attempted resolutions do not last too long, and after 10 days many have been abandoned, so now I make mine on day 10, hoping that if I can keep them past day ten, 364 days won't be as tough, or so my theory goes. But first, I will include an article by my all-time favorite, Capitalism Magazine:

The Meaning of New Year's Resolutions

My own resolutions:

1) Read 50 books or more this year. So far, I have 1 down and 3 if you count books I concluded at the beginning of the year, but I'll just count the one.

2) Lose the weight I gained over the holidays :)

3) Continue my Hebrew lessons, until I can read it and understand it as easily as the English in my siddur.

4) Now I can release some insider information that only RT and Irina knows right now, but I am planning to convert to Judaism, of the Conservative movement, so I will continue my research and will be ready for when Ft Hood's Jewish Chaplain assigns me a rabbi.

5) Save at least $20,000.00 this year..much easier to do as I will be deployed, hopefully.

Six is not a lot, but good ones for enriching my life.

Possible Review........

I was hoping to give a review of the movie Obsession, but unfortunately it has been postponed. I will give a review when the movie comes out, but for now, I will include something very silly:

He looks like Casper, but he's not!!

And Good Riddance!!

Sadly, this may be just part of a larger problem among a certain faction of the Catholic Church which I used to belong, but as recently revealed, Stanilsaus Wielgus, ArchBishop of Warsaw, but truly not deserving of the title of Most Reverend or having his ring kissed, is a Communist collaborator, and he is being let off the hook too damn easily. This "man" is a traitor, and it is fortunate that Poland is an EU nation and the Catholic Church is soft on crime (to be expected of a religion that worships a convicted felon), because this is a grand insult to the memory of a truly great man we know, remember, and loves as John Paul II.

Now, my religious beliefs were on shaky ground since 2002, but I still remained a practicing Catholic, out of loyalty to John Paul II. After he died, I just haven't gone to Mass, and I begin to see how rotten and hollow the foundation of my beliefs were, which has led me into a state of emptiness (that I have recently overcome, but that is a tale for another day, yet soon).

Unlike the bravery of John Paul II, Wielgus was either a Marxist sympathizer and as loathsome as the Liberation theologists, but they were merely useful idiots. He was more of a coward who willingly collaborated with Communist secret police. Benedict XVI should have done a better job checking facts. Either Wielgus was a liberation Theologist and should set be burned at the stake or he was a collaborator working with Communists for secular gain, meaning he deserves to be left in a cell and completely abandoned, not even being fed.

Since I have renounced Christianity, especially Catholicism, this incident shouldn't be too relevant to me, except that I am very strongly anti-Communist and the fact that a Polish priest was in bed with Communists and elevated to ArchBishop is an insult to a mensch among mentchen like John Paul II, and everything he did for his native Poland, for all who suffered under Communism, as well as the good he did for humanity.

I await to see what the Vatican will do with him, though after how they elevated Bernard Law after his role and arrogance in the Boston sexual abuse scandals, I fear that Wielgus may just be shuffled around the Vatican instead of being properly punished for his crimes against Poland as well as all people who suffered under Communism.

A perfect restaurant for Michael Moore!

John Stossel has an pointed out a fun restaurant with a great gimmick and a perfect place for Michael Moore and Bill Clinton to eat at. Morgan Spurlock should go there for yucks, too.

The place is called the Heart Attack Grill, and everything served is bad for you, and they admit that straight up. The place is set in Tempe, AZ so a perfect place for ASU students, especially with the waitresses known as nurses. They even have fun menu items like quadruple bypass burgers and flatline fries.

Unfortunately, the falangists are all up in arms over the naughty nurse stereotype perpetuated by the waitresses. The State Attorney General has threatened to shut down the restaurant and the Arizona Nurse's Board is upset about the title nurse being used by the waitresses. Luckily the bullies were exposed so the Heart Attack Gril was spared the threat of being shut down. Now the only unfortunate thing is that this idiocy is being done in a great state like Arizona. Arizona is supposed to be a land of liberty and Barry Goldwater and the Attorney General's bullying dishonors everything Arizona should represent.

Now, let's get Michael Moore, Ted Kennedy, Jerrold Nadler, and Al Sharpton to have an eating contest at Heart Attack Grill. Last survivor wins :)
