Sing it Gloria! Gloria Estefan at the Calle Ocho march for the Ladies in White. See the video. And an excellent blog item from Babalu Blog: "Cubans Hunger For Change. In Miami, tens of thousands of Cuban exiles marched in solidarity with the Ladies in White in Havana. They marched in Boston. They are marching today in Barcelona, and marches are planned in Los Angeles (see Marta's post below), New York, and Madrid. Cubans are once again making history, and in the process ending the regimes propaganda myth of a divided Cuban people. Whether living in exile, or under castro’s boot heel on the island, there is only one Cuban people, and today they are united in solidarity for freedom and human rights in Cuba. The castro’s and those who support them are on the way to history’s ignoble dustbin." Freedom is the watchword of everyone who couldn't be at Searchlight today.

"But, as Charles Krauthammer said recently, “decline is a choice.” The Democrats are offering it to the American people, and a certain proportion of them seem minded to accept. Enough to make decline inevitable? To return to the young schoolboy on his uncle’s shoulders watching the Queen-Empress’s jubilee, in the words of Arnold Toynbee: “Civilizations die from suicide, not from murder.” More by Mark Steyn here.

"Mr. Stupak and his Democrat followers have now clarified that you cannot be pro-life and be a Democrat. If abortion was truly their biggest issue, they wouldn't willfully align themselves with the Party of Death." "This vote will expose the myth of the 'pro-life Democrat.' With this single vote, the Democratic Party will divide our nation into the Party of Death and the Party of Life, and future elections will never be the same." -Phyllis Schlafly March 21, 2010
O God, you gave Terry Schiavo the grace to endure her silent martyrdom, through her intercession grant to our political leaders the grace they need to persevere in the defense of the Culture of Life. Amen. Our Father, Hail Mary, Glory Be For private devotion.

Something to add to our To Do List in November. Vote the bums out. I hope pro-lifers understand the special importance of defeating the ex-pro-lifers who will have voted for the bill. -Ramesh Ponnuru in The Corner 3/20/10

Coming down to the wire. Pray now for the defeat of Obamacare so that a new, just healthcare bill can be constructed, one that recognizes the value of human life from natural conception to natural death. Let us ask this through the intercession of Terry Schiavo. O God, you gave Terry Schiavo the grace to endure her silent martyrdom, through her intercession grant to our political leaders the grace they need to persevere in the defense of the Culture of Life. Amen. Our Father, Hail Mary, Glory Be For private devotion. He said to me, "They are accomplished. I (am) the Alpha and the Omega, the beginning and the end. To the thirsty I will give a gift from the spring of life-giving water. The victor will inherit these gifts, and I shall be his God, and he will be my son. But as for cowards, the unfaithful, the depraved, murderers, the unchaste, sorcerers, idol-worshipers, and deceivers of every sort, their lot is in the burning pool of fire and sulfur, which is the second death." -Book of Revelation 21:7-8

Where: Capitol Steps, Washington, DC When: Saturday, March 20th at Noon EST. Why: Stop the Obamacare nightmare Join Rep. Michele Bachmann and Jon Voight. How interesting that the Feast of St. Joseph the Just serves as the vigil to the March of Ordinary Joe Worker on Washington to protest the injustice of the Obamacare bill. Make your voice heard. Kill the bill and start over with a real healthcare bill.

Help Fr. Breslin and the Archdiocese of Denver uphold Catholic teaching on the sanctity of marriage. Here are some action items from Fr. Z.: ACTION ITEMS 1. Right now… now... stop and pray the St. Michael Prayer for Fr. Breslin and Archbp. Chaput. 2. Immediately after pray the Memorare for the conversion of the couple of that child. 3. VOTE in that poll from the denverpost.com . 4. Then vote in the second poll farther down on the right side.
"I've been bandying comparisons with Britain and France, but that hardly begins to convey the scale of it. ObamaCare represents the government annexation of "one-sixth of the U.S. economy" — i.e., the equivalent of the entire British or French economy, or the entire Indian economy twice over. Unprecedented Takeover Nobody has ever attempted this level of centralized planning for an advanced society of 300 million people. Even the control freaks of the European Union have never tried to impose a unitary "comprehensive" health care system from Galway to Greece. The Soviet Union did, of course, and we know how that worked out. This "reform" is not about health care, and certainly not about "controlling costs." As with Medicare, it "controls" costs by declining to acknowledge them, or pay them." -Mark Steyn, read the whole thing here
