"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

Does size really matter?

You gotta problem with so much whiteness?

No, ultimately, crowd size doesn't matter.  Trump is POTUS, whether 5 million turned out around the world in protest, or whether only 150,000 turned out to see him sworn in.

Though you could ask yourself how many people rode Metro for similar occasions, it still doesn't mean Trump is not the President of the United States.

It's the lies that matter.  Same as it ever was.  The lies behind Watergate, behind Iran-Contra, even behind the Gulf of Tonkin incident.  It's never quite the facts that matter; it's what's said about the facts, that matter.

And there are no alternatives to facts; there are only lies about them.
