Matriot or Patriot?

An interesting article, from a slightly Left-wing point of view, but well worth reading.  Especially after most of our bought-and-paid-for Senators just passed a bill requiring women to register for the Draft.  Be sure to write your Senators to thank them for bringing America that much closer to total barbarism.

This month we’ve seen a strange confluence of developments, anniversaries, and events bringing the subject of “women and war” to the editorial pages of national newspapers and to the fore of the public consciousness. Last week, the US Senate Armed Services Committee included a Selective Service registration requirement for women in its version of the NDAA, making it likely that after a century of pursing freedom and equality—oftentimes in terms of a right to ownership over one’s own body—women might finally have an equal shot at indentured servitude. At Scripps College in Claremont, California, some students and facultyprotested the choice of Madeleine Albright, first female Secretary of State, as their commencement speaker.  This is all happening against the backdrop of Hillary Clinton’s second presidential run and the media hype surrounding the possibility of electing “our” first female president and thus “our” first female Commander-in-Chief. Earlier this month, Camille Paglia caused quite a stir when she wrote over at Salon that Clinton has “skimmed along in her bouncing gender bubble, virtually untouched…Far from Hillary…having a harder time as a woman candidate, she has been habitually shielded by her gender.” For writing that, Madeleine Albright would surely condemn Paglia to that “special place in hell” reserved for women who do not help each other!
And speaking of heaven and hell, this past Friday (May 13) was the 100th anniversary of the apparition of the Virgin Mary to three shepherd children in Fatima, Portugal, during World War I (if you count the apparition in 1917 as the first). Our Lady of Fatima said: “Do not be afraid. I will not harm you…I am from heaven….pray the rosary every day to obtain peace for the world and the end of the war.” Americans celebrate Mother’s Day in May, but for Catholics this takes on double significance, as the whole month of May is considered the month of Mary, our Divine Mother. Since 1999, May has also been designated Military Appreciation Month. By looking more closely at the Scripps College protests, I hope to show how all of these things are related, and to remind readers, especially female readers, that we are, in the words of Catholic monk Thomas Merton,“living in a time of ultimate decision.”

First they will take all guns, then get rid of the surplus population (the elderly, the chronically ill, dissidents, personal enemies, etc).
Then everybody will be marshalled into training camps, factories, etc to prepare for war with Russia.

Which indeed will be the war to end all the others as there will be nothing left afterwards.
The Catholics are still squabbling about all kinds of trifles: did the Vatican really release the third secret of Fatima or not ? was sister Lucy the real one ?

Exactly like when the Byzantines were surrounded by the Ottomans and they were wasting their time talking about how many angels could sit on a pin, or some such.

Correct. Manipulation and distractions are the tools used by the oligarchs and plutocrats to keep us occupied on other things while they rape and pillage. It's an old story, but they certainly have freshened it up a bit with the new technologies available.
