MADDEN–John Patrick,

of Southampton, NY passed away August 8 after a valiant battle with AML.

Born in the Bronx, NY on September 9, 1945 to Eugene Patrick and Eileen Gaughan Madden, who predeceased him, John leaves behind his beloved fiancee Mary Allen and adoring sons Samuel Patrick and Christopher Michael.

He is survived by sisters Maryalice DuVal, Eileen Osmolskis (Paul), and Kathleen Baumeister (John); brother Eugene (Rene); eight nieces and nephews; and many long- time friends.

After obtaining a BCE from Manhattan College and an MSCE from NYU, John served as a civil engineer, primarily for the US Corps of Engineers, for nearly a decade. He then received a Juris Doctor from St. John’s University, and launched a diverse career as an international arbitrator, mediator, lawyer, and law professor.

John served as a neutral on such projects as the “Big Dig” in Boston, the Dublin Port Tunnel, Wembley Stadium in London, and the Jumbo Ferry project in Puget Sound, Washington. He was admitted to practice before the US Supreme Court, US Patent and Trademark Office, US District Courts, New York and New Jersey Bars, and was a member of the Law Societies of Ireland and of England and Wales. John was a longtime member of the National Arts Club and numerous international associations. John taught mediation at both Trinity College, Dublin and Fordham University.

POSITRACTION: Pope Francis Declares Opposition Death Penalty



Pope Francis Declares Death Penalty Inadmissible in All Cases
Posted on August 2, 2018 by JMF

(From BBC News)

*** begin quote ***

Pope Francis has changed the teachings of the Catholic faith to oppose the death penalty in all circumstances, the Vatican has said.

The Catechism of the Church, which sums up the teachings, had previously stated that the death penalty could be used in some cases.

*** end quote ***

Well, a stopped clock is right twice a day!  I never needed the Pope to tell me that the “death penalty” is immoral.

What changed after all these centuries?

Did he wake up one morning and decide?  Divine inspiration?  Need a new way to get publicity?  Seek to distract from the ongoing paedophilia scandals!

I’ll vote for “distraction”.

The Papacy has lost all credibility and moral authority.

ENDNOTE: Let’s NOT repeat Charlottesville!



Washington, D.C., Braces for ‘Unite the Right 2’ White Nationalist Rally

*** begin quote ***

Washington is bracing for a white nationalist rally that law enforcement agencies will try to prevent from descending into a melee like the one in Charlottesville, Virginia, that cast a shadow over Donald Trump’s presidency a year ago.

Permits for Sunday’s “Unite the Right 2” rally indicated that about 400 demonstrators are expected in Lafayette Square, a park adjacent to the White House. More than 1,500 counter-protesters plan to gather at various downtown locations, including in the same park.

*** end quote ***

My assessment of Charlottesville was that the police were woefully unprepared.

Anyone wearing a mask should have been arrested.  

Anyone carrying a shield should have been arrested.  

Anyone wearing a helmet — not at a football game — should have been arrested.  

No warnings. And, the bail hearing on the following Monday.

Anyone fighting — arrested.  Anyone littering — arrested. Anyone “inciting” a riot — arrested.

And, I wouldn’t be handing out slaps on the wrist.

The Gooferment has only ONE real duty — to keep the peace.


ALT-Right, ALT-Left, ALT-Center — everyone gets equal treatment.

Blessed are the peacemakers.
