"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

The Fat, Hanging Slow Pitch

During an interview with Fox & Friends on Wednesday, President Trump’s son said that he was “focused on the Democrats” while his dad was speaking to the nation.

“And I honestly think they’re scared,” he opined. “And if I look around [during Tuesday’s speech], they don’t have the personality to go against him. They were sitting there. They looked, quite frankly, defeated.”

“I mean, they didn’t stand for anything,” the younger Trump continued. “When he said ‘In God We Trust’ — when my father mentioned ‘In God We Trust,’ the guiding principle of this country, no one stood.”

The hosts of Fox & Friends were ready to support Eric Trump by playing a “montage” of Democrats refusing to stand.

“You know what, I think it’s actually very sad,” Eric Trump stated. “There are things as Americans we should be united on. And if we can’t be united on God, if we can’t be united on African-American unemployment being at the lowest it’s ever been.”

Sometimes the universe puts one right over the plate.  Or maybe it's just Eric.....

I'd love to get her and Hillary together to talk about their cheatin' husbands.

Given the rate of STDs among porn-prostitutes, I'd divorce someone who exposed me to that possibility. It would be nice if I could say it makes you wonder why all those people who, as recently as 2016, were slamming Hillary for not divorcing Bill don't seem to mind that Melania isn't. Only we all know the answer to that one.
