Asked if he was in favor of that:

Sowell: “I’m in favor of a million things that are said in preambless.  It’s when you get into the actual text of the law that the problems begin.. video at 18:45 for the problems that begin.

Should Obamacare be fixed or repealed outright?

Sowell: “Repealed outright; that would fix it.”

Pope Francis On His Prayer

Antonio Spadaro, S.J., is the editor in chief of La Civiltà Cattolica.  He asks Pope Francis about his preferred way to pray:

“I pray the breviary every morning. I like to pray with the psalms. Then, later, I celebrate Mass. I pray the Rosary. What I really prefer is adoration in the evening, even when I get distracted and think of other things, or even fall asleep praying. In the evening then, between seven and eight o’clock, I stay in front of the Blessed Sacrament for an hour in adoration. But I pray mentally even when I am waiting at the dentist or at other times of the day.

“Prayer for me is always a prayer full of memory, of recollection, even the memory of my own history or what the Lord has done in his church or in a particular parish. For me it is the memory of which St. Ignatius speaks in the First Week of the Exercises in the encounter with the merciful Christ crucified. And I ask myself: ‘What have I done for Christ? What am I doing for Christ? What should I do for Christ?’ It is the memory of which Ignatius speaks in the ‘Contemplation for Experiencing Divine Love,’ when he asks us to recall the gifts we have received. But above all, I also know that the Lord remembers me. I can forget about him, but I know that he never, ever forgets me. Memory has a fundamental role for the heart of a Jesuit: memory of grace, the memory mentioned in Deuteronomy, the memory of God’s works that are the basis of the covenant between God and the people. It is this memory that makes me his son and that makes me a father, too.”

Obama Fixin’ the Constitution?

Why are we surprised by the changes?  Back in 2001 in a Chicago Public Radion Interview President Obama said the U.S. Constitution “reflected fundamental flaw of this country that continues to this day.”
