"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

Honoring Black History Month

No; but you wouldn't be surprised if it was true, would you?

Ladies and gentlemen, the President of the United States:

"Frederick Douglass is an example of somebody who has done an amazing job and is being recognized more and more, I notice," Trump said, perhaps unable to articulate Douglass' historically recognized role as an abolitionist leader and the first black citizen to hold a high rank in the U.S. government.

He went on to name Harriet Tubman and Rosa Parks as examples of "black Americans who made America what it is today."

"A big impact," Trump said. "I'm proud to honor this heritage. I will be honoring it more and more."
And let's not leave out his golden oldie:

"We're going to work very hard in the inner city. Ben [Carson] will be doing that, one of his big things. We need safer communities. We're going to do that with law enforcement. We're going to make it safe. We're going to make it much better than it is right now. Right now it's terrible."

He works in words the way toddlers work in mud.  It's a heritage he will be honoring more and more.

Twitter apparently likes me again, so two tweets related to what Trump said:



And:

Everything is all about him.
