"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

"I can resist anything but temptation."

Trump is a disease, and it's contagious:

“That line is so indefensible,” [Rep. Raul] Labrador [R-ID] replied. “Nobody dies because they don’t have access to health care.”

He might have gotten away with "because they don't have access to health insurance;" but that's not what he said.

Just like Trump didn't say America's health care system is the worst because of Obamacare; he said Australia's health care system is better. and everbody else's is, too.  Full stop.  End of sentence.  Of course, almost every country in the industrialized world (and some not) has single-payer healthcare.

And (I shouldn't even have to say it) people do die whose only access to healthcare is the emergency room.

Strange days indeed.
