"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

"They're rioting in Africa!"

Mudslides in California.  Panic in Hawaii.  Trump in Florida:

That doesn't include four retweets from the Washington Times, Lou Hobbs, and a private citizen responsible for the Pizzagate conspiracy, all in the past 24 hours.

On the Wall Street Journal interview:  there is a tape, the President is wrong.  Quelle surprise.

On immigration, presumably the President stands with Sen. Tom Cotton:

“The president reacted with pretty tough language because we want to move to a system that treats people for who they are,” the Arkansas Republican remarked. “Today, we have a system that rewards ties of blood, ties of kin, ties of clan. That’s one of the most un-American immigration systems that I can imagine.”

Because the American Dream is the immigration of economic units, not the reunification of families!  Not unless those kids and Grandma can be put to work!

As for Hawaii:  nothing to see here, folks!

"The President has been briefed on the state of Hawaii's emergency management exercise. This was purely a state exercise," White House deputy press secretary Lindsay Walters said in a statement.

Not that the White House took it that way:

A false warning of a missile threat in Hawaii sent White House aides scrambling Saturday, frantically phoning agencies to determine a response and triggering worries about their preparedness almost a year into the Trump administration.

President Donald Trump's Cabinet has yet to test formal plans for how to respond to a domestic missile attack, according to a senior administration official. John Kelly, while serving as secretary of Homeland Security through last July, planned to conduct the exercise. But he left his post to become White House chief of staff before it was conducted, and acting Secretary Elaine Duke never carried it out.
Pretty much "My Pet Goat" redux, except with the POTUS on the golf course, completely clueless and clearly more concerned with the state of himself than with the state of the nation.

Quelle surprise.
