"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

Who Will Rid Me of This Troublesome Policy?

It's all about the pictures.  The kids?  Well, they look innocent, but they're crisis actors, ya know.  And whose idea was it to suddenly detain 'em all?  I'm telling' ya, somebody really screwed up, and it's up to youse guys to fix it!

(A meeting between Trump and legislators is like a Texas summer forecast:  just repeat the forecast from the time before, because ain't nothin' gonna be any different.  It's gonna be All About Trump, All the Time, with the same outcome at the end of the day:  

“He said a lot of things. He said he supported the bill, I guess. It was very rambling, he talked about everything from the lawsuit to tax bills,” said Rep. Walter Jones (R-NC). “It was kind of hard to follow everything he says — it was like a bouncing ball.”

And a swipe at a defeated GOP House member who wasn't in attendance, for good measure.  “ 'He was very ugly,' said Jones."  Progress!  For the kiddies!)
