"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

"It is impossible for me to say in my book one word about all that music has meant in my life. How then can I hope to be understood?--Ludwig Wittgenstein

“The opposite of poverty is not wealth; the opposite of poverty is justice."--Bryan Stevenson

For my next prediction....

Somewhere on the interwebs is the article which I cannot now find about the NSA revelations (B.S., Before Snowden, IIRC) which ended with a particularly pungent quote about how nothing was likely to change because people would complain on Twitter, but that wasn't the same as voting their suddenly awakened consciences (and besides, all of Congress knows how to handle this:  either declare Snowden a traitor, or be shocked, shocked! to learn the government has a secret program to gather all your electronical traded stuff.  Something the NSA has been doing since it was No Such Agency, and the building in D.C. didn't officially house anything and wasn't really there.  My memory is long, indeed; almost as long as my sentences.  Suck on that, Marcel!).


We now return you to your regularly scheduled collection of data.

You know...I keep reading your posts on this issue, and I can't help but wonder...

You seem to be very angry at those of us who find what our government is doing unconscionable. Why is that?
