Catholic Eye-opener


Interesting facts, even if you are not a Catholic.

Our votes do count...Don't forget what has transpired in Congress this past few years. Vote them out and elect someone who will protect us Americans.

Charity Hospital run by the Sisters of Charity in New Orleans, along with the Upjohn company developed the plasma system in the 1930’s that saved so many lives in WWII, Korea, Vietnam and in the middle east now.

During the Civil War most of the nurses were nuns.

EVEN IF YOU ARE NOT CATHOLIC, THIS IS EYE OPENING..

When the Catholic Church was founded, there were no hospitals. Today, one out of five people in this country receive their medical care at a Catholic hospital.

When the Catholic Church was founded, there were no schools. Today, the Catholic Church teaches 3 million students a day, in its more than 250 Catholic Colleges and Universities, in its more than 1200 Catholic High Schools and its more than 5000 Catholic grade schools.

Every day, the Catholic Church feeds, clothes, shelters and educates more people than any other organization in the world.

The new Obama Health Mandate could end all this and the tax payers would have to make up the loss.

Also, all Catholic adoption services would come to an end; a human disaster.

There are more than 77 million Catholics in this country. It takes an estimated 50 million Catholic votes to elect a president.

I am asking all of you to go to the polls in 2014 and be united in replacing all Senators and Reps with someone who will respect the Catholic Church, all Christians, and all Religions with perhaps the exception of Islam.

Mr. President, you said, "The USA is not a Christian Nation". You are wrong - we are a Christian Nation founded on Judeo-Christian values allowing all religions in America to Worship & Practice Freely. Something Islam will never do.

Oh, by the way, on MUSLIM HERITAGE IN America ...

Have you ever been to a Muslim hospital,
heard a Muslim orchestra,
seen a Muslim band march in a parade,
know of a Muslim charity,
ever seen Muslims shaking hands with a Muslim Girl Scout,
or ever seen a Muslim Candy Striper volunteering in a hospital?

Have you ever seen a Muslim do much of anything that contributes positively to the American way of life?

Any WWII Buffs Out There?

I've been going through and destashing a lot of my goodies  clutter.
It's a fresh new year and I want to clean out unused items, supplies, items that I'm hanging on to that don't really speak to me.

I feel like I can't breathe sometimes and that I'm going to be the next one on Hoarders!

I came across a huge tin full of  things of Dad's from WWII and earlier. I know there are collectors out there that will appreciate these things more than I. Now there are certain items I won't part with, like his handwritten Flight Log Book that on one date describes the crash landing his PBY.

But I digress, here are some unique and interesting items that I am honored to present..

Short Snorters
This one has sold.
You're probably wondering what the heck a ''Short Snorter'' is.
A short snorter is a banknote inscribed by people traveling together on an aircraft.
During World War II short snorters were signed by flight crews and conveyed good luck to soldiers crossing the Atlantic. Friends would take the local currency and sign each other's bills creating a "keepsake of your buddy's signatures".
 The challenge became pulling out your roll of taped-together bills and comparing them. 
Whoever had the shortest strip of bills had to buy a round of drinks!
Thus the short snorter.
This one is available here
 These Navy,
 khaki,
and white Rating Patches have already sold.
These assorted WWII US Navy Ribbons are available here
Love these WWII Pins, available here.
These WWII US Navy Combat Air Crew Wings
sold fast!
 As did these 2 sets of buttons also!

WW II Antilles Department U S Army Motion Picture Service Coupon Book is Complete!  You can find it here 
 These Unique Vintage Cigarette Lighters from WWII era
are so interesting and available here. 
This WWII US First Aid Packet that is still sealed has sold.

There will be more to come. Great gift ideas for the history buff.
I'm sure these bring back memories for a lot of  Service Men and Women out there.
Enjoy browsing ♥
