"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

"Praise the Lord and pass the ammunition."

"You know the great thing about the state of Iowa is, I'm pretty sure you all define gun control the same way we do in Texas -- hitting what you aim at," Cruz said at a town hall meeting Friday in Red Oak.

Ted Cruz makes a funny.

News reports are that Dylan Roof reloaded at least four times, in order to shoot 9 people.  Where did the rest of the bullets go? Or did he want to make sure everyone he shot was "really dead"? Is this, or is this not, "gun control"?

The gun battle which ended with Tamerlan Tsarnaev being run over by his brother, lasted 8 minutes.   Tamerlan drove away from the battle. Did the police not have "gun control"?  The boat Dzokar was captured in, had "at least 108 bullet holes."  Lack of gun control?

Guns in movies don't fire bullets, and the only people "hit" are the ones the camera aims at; the people prepared with squibs and special effects explosives, and probably they "die" over and over again before the director is satisfied.  The "good guys" never get shot to death.

"Gun control," I guess.

I have come to believe that that prophesy of an Antichrist embedded in the book of Revelation had something to it, I think it's been with us always but I think we are seeing quite a fecund period of it right now.

Ted Cruz is not much different from a lot of other people in except as he says what they only think. Really, I don't think Susan Collins is that much different from him.

We expended 100k rounds of ammo in Vietnam for every alleged enemy killed. Still counts as "hitting what you aimed at." Nobody ever talks about how many times you gotta fire to win the game...
