"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

Where's my box?

Oh, there it is.
President Donald J. Trump:

"I have plenty of time on my hands.  All I do is work."

So:  which is it?

And by the way, Puerto Rico is in the Caribbean Sea, not the Atlantic Ocean.  This may explain why the Navy and FEMA aren't there a week after the hurricanes struck.

And by the further way, the Marine in that tweet* did not consent to the use of his image for Trump's stupid power trip on the NFL (who snubbed him completely).  One more insult of the military in a long string of his insults.

*As JMM pointed out, do we know if the person who tweeted that originally is even real, or just another fake, maybe even a Russian fake?  We are not even beginning to deal with the problems of the internet in democracies, but we need to.  And what JMM had to say about the use of that image is spot on, and not part of the danger of the intertoobs, but merely of good old fashioned demagoguery of the kind we've been treated to since last Friday night.
