"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

F*ck Christmas

Remember when more tariffs on China were suspended because Christmas?

Well, the war is on, bay-bee!  And Christmas is just another casualty!  Besides, that was 9 days ago!  Things change!  China annoyed the wrong POTUS, you betcha!

“This new round of tariffs would increase everything,” Reid noted. “Something like 70% of what you buy in Walmart is sourced from China.”

“And so if you raise the prices — that’s tariffs are — by 25% or 30%, you are essentially going to tank the U.S. economy just before Christmas,” she warned.

Trump don't care!  He's more than willing for you to suffer so he can feel better about himself!  War on, Christmas!

I'm hoping the day after election day will be like Christmas.

He's seriously deranged, that's a worry. One of many. My most serious worry is that if he died tomorrow between 30 and 40% of the American People like what he's doing and they could easily find another person as morally degenerate to fixate on or they could start using the arsenal that the Supreme Court has allowed them to amass and impose actual fascism or a violent chaos on the country, a bloodbath. And I'm not that certain that the police and military wouldn't join in on that side. One of the biggest worries is that Trump could be right about that.

This country has been on a long slide since the summer of 1964.

If it made a dent in the ever increasingly disgusting fortunes of the Walton family, there might be some good in it. Of a sort.
