"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

Letting them eat cake

A secretary at a public high school in Lancaster, PA, said she was pleasantly surprised her pay went up $1.50 a week … she said [that] will more than cover her Costco membership for the year.

Apparently Paul Ryan posted this message on Twitter, and then took it down.  Perhaps he finally figured out the snark, that a high school secretary needs a Costco membership just to get by, and all this "tax break" does is pay for that membership; if she can manage to save that $1.50 every week and put it aside to pay the annual fee.  She might as well have said she can finally afford a cup of coffee at Starbucks now.

$1.50 a week has a way of evaporating before it hits the ground.

Pointing and laughing must become a way of life if anything is to change.

He is such a dirtball.

I'm convinced he's getting paid off by billionaires.

I'm not normally violent but he's on the list of people who, if I ever ran into him I'd have to hit him in the face.
