"The central doctrine of Christianity, then, is not that God is a bastard. It is, in the words of the late Dominican theologian Herbert McCabe, that if you don’t love you’re dead, and if you do, they’ll kill you."--Terry Eagleton

"...doesn't philosophy amount to the sum of all thinkable and unthinkable errors, ceaselessly repeated?"--Jean-Luc Marion

Things I seriously do not understand

Mitt Romney is telling lies.  First he said Obama said "You didn't build that."  He clearly took Obama's statement out of context.

Then he said the Obama Administration wanted to block military personnel from early voting in Ohio, the very opposite of the position taken by the Justice Department in a voter's rights lawsuit there.

He doesn't do this in ads.  He does it in his speeches.  He does it in his own words.

But when a Super PAC which supports Obama releases an ad about a man who lost his job due to Bain Capital, and with his job lost his health insurance, and because he had no insurance his wife hid her illness until it was stage four cancer and she couldn't hide it any longer, CNN says the ad is misleading and the Obama campaign is responsible.

For which there can be only one logical response:  Obama must start including in his speech the allegation that Mitt Romney murdered Joe Soptic's wife.

Then there won't be anything for the "fact checkers" to comment on.

CNN is a Republican brothel. It is not required to present accurate information. It sells its services to the highest bidder. Its owners are part of the privileged class and its on-air staff aspire to be part of the privileged class. Those are the bald facts of what "the free press" really is in the age of mass, electronic media.
