To use the old southern expression, I'm just plumb tuckered out.
Started getting sick Monday and just self-medicated and ignored it. Tuesday it was really dragging me down, but I still worked through it. I probably should have called dispatch and went home, but I didn't. Then, Wednesday there was no way I could drive, so I took a sick day. And this morning I was in contact with my doctor at VA via the VA website secure messaging, and he had me come in for x-rays, exams and evaluations, so, guess what, today (Thursday) is yet another day off.
The treatment they started off with takes a good 48 hours to start kicking in, and it's something I take twice a day, so, guess what, tomorrow is yet another day off.
The whole reason I was here most of the day yesterday keeping up with all the great stuff that came in from Abp. Viganò, Linda Kimball, Pidlubniak and Cliff Kincaid is that I wasn't working, I was home, sick. Normally, if that kind of volume came in during a normal work week it would have taken me two or maybe even three days to get it all online, because I normally only have a limited number of early morning hours in which to do it before I go to work. And sometimes I have a little time in the evenings, but not much.
Don't expect that sort of activity to happen today or tomorrow, because even though I'm home, I haven't slept right in three days and I'm just worn out. So the time not spent sleeping will be time spent praying. I haven't been doing enough of that lately, so maybe I can make up for that failure.
As to who is right or most right between Abp. Viganò and Pidlubniak, I don't know. I trust Abp. Viganò implicitly, he is perhaps the most orthodox Catholic Bishop out there defending the true faith, and yet, Pidlubniak is a boots-on-the-ground Ukrainian, often posting on this website, and I see no reason to question his words or his honor, although I wish he might temper his language when speaking to or of such a great Bishop. However, he is in a desperate hot war situation, and I understand that.
At any rate, the disinformation - misinformation - propaganda and anti-Christian cultural rot they both speak of has been going on since Adam's first sin. It's been chronicled right here, and you don't have read just my words about it; look through the Nito Gnoci pages, the Linda Kimball pages and the Cliff Kincaid pages. The history of it is clear. Almost nothing you hear today is true; everything is upside down
We've got to get back to the Truth, if we want Him to get back to us.
So don't look for too much activity from me for a few days. I'm going to prop myself up somewhere and pray another rosary, and if I fall asleep, I have been told that Our Lay will finish it for me. And when I wake up, I will pray another one.
As for the rest of the world, as Rodney Dangerfield might say,
Can I hear a "Poor Vic"?
The only thing Truth has going for Him in this world is us.
The restoration of Truth = Reality in the hearts and minds of men is now totally dependent upon you and me; if we don't do it, it won't get done.
Sign the Letter to your Bishop, and make our Church Catholic again.
Join Cardinal Burke's Storm Heaven Rosary Campaign.
Get behind President Trump, and make America Constitutional again.
Pray for a strategic collaboration between Abp. Vigano and Trump.
With fear and trembling, work out your salvation--Phil 2:12
Seek the Truth; Find the Way; Live the Life.
Please God, and Live Forever.

No 'poor Vics' but I did pray that our Father would touch you with His hand of healing and comfort.

Vic ,you should be tuckered out. I can't believe the work you do on this. Hope you are feeling fine presently. Thanks for all the great writing.

Aw, poor Vic...
You should not be neglecting your health, Vic. It's more valuable than money - so rest up when you can) Six- or seven-days work weeks can be tough. Speaking of work weeks... My job's been restored - my post office begun working again, despite a new Russian attack on the Ivano-Frankivsk airport today.
I do hope that you'll forgive my harsh language towards the good Archbishop Vigano; there's only so much of bonafide Russian propaganda a man can take. I am sorry... I suppose, now that I've cooled off a bit, I can see how someone might see Ukraine as "Nazi", since our media does not have the same penetration in Europe and America as Russian state-funded media does. Ukraine doesn't have unlimited petrodollars to fund propaganda channels like Russia Today... So I don't think that Archbishop Vigano speaks with deliberate intent to obfuscate the truth, but just in genuine ignorance. This is understandable; no man is infallible and no man is omniscient. But, still, there are no Nazis over here - they were here only once, from 1941 to 1944. For Archbishop Vigano and everyone else who wants to accurately learn about the situation in Ukraine, I'd recommend such sources as Kyiv Post (the best Ukrainian news source that's translated into English), Ukrinform (the second-best source that's has translations into English) and Channel 5/"5 канал" - perhaps, THE best news channel in Ukraine out of all (but, unfortunately, fully enjoying it requires someone to know Ukrainian or Russian).

Thanks for all the kind thoughts and emails from everyone; getting back to normal and going to Mass today. Not ready to say I'm back in the saddle again, but close. Can't say enough about the good care received from the VA, despite all the horror stories you might hear from others.
Never be lukewarm.
Life itself demands passion.
He who is indifferent to God has already forfeited his soul.
He who is indifferent to politics has already forfeited his liberty.
In America, religion is not mere window dressing and citizenship is not a spectator sport.
Do not allow our common destiny as a whole people to just happen without your input.
Seek the Truth; find the Way; live the Life; please God, and live forever.

Enter ye in at the narrow gate: for wide is the gate, and
broad is the way that leadeth to destruction, and many there are who go in
thereat. How narrow is the gate, and strait is the way that leadeth to life:
and few there are that find it! Beware of false prophets, who come to you in
the clothing of sheep, but inwardly they are ravening wolves.
Jesus Christ; Matt 7:13-15
"We belong to the Church militant; and She is militant because on earth the powers of darkness are ever restless to encompass Her destruction. Not only in the far-off centuries of the early Church, but down through the ages and in this our day, the enemies of God and Christian civilization make bold to attack the Creator’s supreme dominion and sacrosanct human rights.”--Pope Pius XII
"It is not lawful to take the things of others to give to the poor. It is a sin worthy of punishment, not an act deserving a reward, to give away what belongs to others."--St. Francis of Assisi
Truth is incontrovertible. Malice may attack it, ignorance may deride it, but in the end, there it is.—Winston Churchill
The smallest minority on earth is the individual. Those who deny individual rights cannot claim to be defenders of minorities.—Ayn Rand
