COMMENT: McFadden, Michael J. (MC1973) characterizes the election rhetoric

2018-Nov-19 0323

RE: ENDNOTE “We, The Sheeple” keep electing either side of the same coin

Interesting that they’d characterize THIS election as being “the most important of our lifetime.”

I’d have thought they’d reserved that spot for the 2016 election. I guess they’re not that upset about Trump after all, eh?

COMMENT: Twomey, John J. (MC1969) thinks I’d “Do the Right Thing”

2018-Nov-04 1518

POSITRACTION: Man “did the honest thing”; challenge of what would you do

John, since you attended Good Shepherd, Manhattan Prep and Manhattan College, you learned to “Do the Right Thing”. You would have returned the money. The Good Brothers taught us well.

Twomey, John J. (MC1969)

[JR: Thanks for the vote of confidence, but one’s never sure what one will do. That’s why I hope my temptations are all very small in line with my modest abilities. Laugh! ]

Thank you for your post regarding the death of our beloved son. I just stumbled across it this evening, and we are very touched. Kevin’s Mom Nancy (Grogan) Hamilton is a Jasper, class of 1985, as is his Uncle Christopher Hamilton, class of 1987. We are grateful for the prayers of all, and ask continued prayers both for us and for Kevin.

Gratefully,

Deacon Kenneth & Nancy Hamilton

COMMENT: Kuhn, Rob (MC1973) thinks the endnote is pointless, inaccurate, whining

2018-Oct-15

RE: ENDNOTE: Putting the “goof” in Gooferment

Sun, Oct 14, 4:30 AM (1 day ago)

What? Not the responsibility of the engineers who created and manage the database – most likely non-Governmental vendors? How is blaming “the government” different from blaming the Catholic RELIGION for the actions of bad priests? Whether you’re criticizing incompetence or evil, it’s not accurate to characterize an organization as ONE thing unless you can indict — or applaud — every single member. Otherwise it’s pointless – and I repeat, inaccurate – whining.

Kuhn, Rob (MC1973)

[JR: Three quick points: (1) The Government, with its self-assumed monopoly of force, is corrupt and unable to get out of its own way.  (2) Sure there is an obvious problem in the system design, but the lack of an over-ride or appeal is just as stupid. AND (3) I blame BOTH the politicians and bureaucrats in Gooferment for all its abuses AS WELL AS the entire Church and hierarchy for their crimes and cover ups. Do I have to indict every single participant in order to indict an organization? I think not. Pointless? Possibly but at least I can continue to expose the farce that we are facing! Inaccurate? Not! Whining? Probably since the problem appears to be unfixable. Thanks for the email and reading my rant.]

COMMENT: Rooney, John Peter (MC1965) can’t find reference to Kincaid, Andrew Bruce [MC1965 RIP]

2018-Aug-01

29 JULY 2018

John:

I checked my copy of the 1965 yearbook, “MANHATTANITE”, and I could not find any mention of Andrew Bruce Kincaid, may he rest in peace. Don’t think he is Class of 1965.

Sincerely,
John Peter Rooney
BEE, Manhattan College, 1965

[JR: Not sure what reference is accurate since mistakes — in this case, omission — happen. ]
