"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

"...doesn't philosophy amount to the sum of all thinkable and unthinkable errors, ceaselessly repeated?"--Jean-Luc Marion

“The opposite of poverty is not wealth; the opposite of poverty is justice."--Bryan Stevenson

Forget Healthcare

It's August (practically) and Congress is in recess, so we're going to war with North Korea!

Shit rolls downhill fast:

Real fast:

The United States flew two supersonic bombers over the Korean peninsula and tested out its missile defense system as a warning to North Korea after it conducted another successful test of an intercontinental ballistic missile that apparently proved its ability to strike the mainland U.S. Just in case the message wasn’t clear, the commander of the U.S. Pacific Air Forces warned that the United States and its allies are ready to “respond with rapid, lethal, and overwhelming force at a time and place of our choosing.” Gen. Terrence J. O’Shaughnessy was sure to point out that while “diplomacy remains the lead” it is important to “showcase our unwavering commitment while planning for the worst-case scenario.”

Ben Rhodes is Obama's foreign policy advisor.  Anyone doubt the former Secretary of State under Obama would be handling this just a bit differently?  But, you know, Wall Street, Goldman Sachs, Bernie wuz robbed!, etc., etc., etc......

It figures that after Bush I instigated the invasion of Kuwait and the Gulf War and Bush II lied us into the invasion of Iraq that Trump would come up with the mother of all tails to wag the dog, probably killing the dog.

This is what happens when the media create a boob and get him installed in the presidency. t.
