.by Anura Guruge
We did not know till last night that Saad Hindal, who is amazingly talented and a very nice guy to boot, had painted that amazing, very evocative mural in Concord — at the gas station (now closed) right opposite Concord High School (where all of his kids attended).

Given that I, on principle, abhor human suffering, of any sort, I was always in favor of the Government workers getting back pay — as was the case with the last shutdown 17 years ago.
I can’t imagine what it would be like not to get the back pay. It would devastate families. So, I am relieved and happy about the back pay, though as a political junkie I am well aware that neither the Senate or soon-to-be-impeached Obama has approved it. But, it will happen.
So, I yet again ask the most fundamental of question.
Given that they will receive BACK pay, why aren’t they BACK at work?
No work, no pay. I understand that too.
Back Pay, Back to work. That is the American way.
So what is the deal here?
This is such a farce. Plus, to my esteemed friends in the Tea Party — what are you saving now, other than your face and privates?
Back pay coupled with all the loss in productivity will cost the country more than if the Government was kept open.
The ONLY thing that deserved to be closed and it did that all on its own because of the fraud perpetrated by Obama brown noser Bryan Sivak was Healthcare.gov. That isn’t a joke. That system is a billion dollar FRAUD on the U.S. taxpayers.

This is why I was always so against papal resignations. Having two ‘popes’ around is always a sure fire recipe for potential schism and definitely disagreements. That is why we hadn’t had a papal resignation, prior to that of February 2013, in 598 years.
I always screamed, possible SCHISM.
Well, it isn’t a schism as such, YET, but it sure could be given that the issue in point is the always divisive, ever controversial Latin Mass,
So when I saw this post all I could say was: ‘Here we GO! I knew this would happen’.
Ratzinger, as we came to know, is a extremely vain, egomaniac — even by papal standards. That he waited a whole 6 months before butting in amazes me. I expected him to do so sooner. This is but the start — unless the Vatican, as I had always advocated, resorts to their ‘Plan B’.
