By Fulton Sheen's Standards, Clinton and Trump are Communists

"MOST LEGISLATIVE PROGRAMS, political slogans, and radical catchwords of our times are concerned with the satisfaction of material wants. The Communist catchword is “jobs” “jobs” “jobs”; the politician’s slogan is “work” “work” “work”; the legislator’s promise is “[more] material security.” Add to this the sad fact that millions of citizens, whose bodies and souls have been ravaged by a materialist civilization, have reached a point where they are willing to sacrifice the last crumb of liberty for a piece of the cake of security. Reformers [and community organizers] have not understood their cry. Because man make demands for security, our reformers have neglected to inquire what they really want. A starving man asks for bread, when he really wants life. “The body is more than the raiment, and life is more than the food.” The unemployed, the socially disinherited, the poor broken earthenware of humanity ask for “work,” but what they really want is independence. The normal man does not want to be fed either by a social agency or a state; he wants to be able to feed himself. In other words, he wants liberty. But, as we said in the last chapter, there is only one solid economic foundation for individual liberty and that is a wider distribution of property.
Property is here understood primarily as productive property, such as land, or a share in the profits, management or ownership of industry. Property does not mean a distribution of created wealth [past savings] such as bread, circuses, and jobs, but a redistribution of creative wealth [future earnings]; not rations handed out by an agency or an employer, but a shared ownership of productive goods. Liberty to be real, concrete, and practicable must have a foundation in the economic order; namely, independence."
~ Fulton J. Sheen, Freedom under God, Economic Guarantee of Human Liberty, 1940/2013, (page 49).

Have not posted anything on autism in a long time

Funny, my friend Daniel Salomon and I were just talking about this.  How dependency does NOT help adults with autism, but instead, holds them back.   First Place Transition Academy, located in Phoenix, Arizona, is trying to change that.

These are mainly lower functioning, what used to be called Kanner's Autism kids.  But they're being taught the skills they need to learn to work and have a good life.

$1000 at the right time can save $20,000 when dealing with homelessness

Just $1000 to somebody who can otherwise pay for housing but is facing a non-recurring sudden expense, can and does save society $20,000 in welfare and shelters.

The economic data is in, and the United States is coming close to a crisis point.

The data is in.  The United States is now far below replacement rate on having children.  With a mere 59.6 births per 1,000 women for 2015, we are now seriously in decline.

This is a public health crisis, brought on by contraception, abortion, and materialism, and nobody cares.
