"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

Does he think reality is what he says it is?



Huh?  Has he read his own party's bill?


There is no tax reform bill.  At all.  NADA.  What is he talking about?


Not according to the President of France and officials of Germany.

“The short-sighted policies of the American government stand against the interests of the European Union,” [Germany's Foreign Minister Sigmar Gabriel] said, adding that “the West has become smaller, at least it has become weaker”.

“We Europeans must fight for more climate protection, fewer weapons and against religious (fanaticism), otherwise the Middle East and Africa will be further destabilised,” Gabriel said.

Which would be what, exactly?  The bizarre alternative universe of his tweets?  Or whoever spoke to Trump last?

“You tricked me in D.C.! You talked there about your commitment to peace, but the Israelis showed me your involvement in incitement [against Israel],” he allegedly said to [Mahmoud] Abbas, according to Israel’s Channel 2 broadcaster, which cited a U.S. official present at the meeting. It said the Palestinian delegation were shocked by the outburst.

The Israeli government blames the Palestinian leadership and Abbas’s Fatah faction for inciting violence among young Palestinians, who from September 2015 onward launched a series of violent and deadly attacks with knives, guns and vehicles in Jerusalem and the West Bank. The Palestinians say it is Israel’s military occupation of East Jerusalem and the West Bank that pushed them to violence. The violence slowed in mid-2016.
Foreign leaders are going to be playing this naif like a whipsaw.


Somehow you even manage to make Memorial Day about you.
