How long must I dream?

What is the meaning of a concept of sanity that excludes love, considers it irrelevant, and destroys our capacity to love other human beings, to respond to their needs and their sufferings, to recognize them also as persons, to apprehend their pain as one’s own?”

“It’s been five months plus five months plus five months plus five months plus five months plus five months plus five months plus five months plus five months plus five months plus five months plus five months plus five months plus five months plus five months plus five months plus five months plus five months plus five months plus five months plus five months plus five months since Charles Krauthammer told us … ‘Come back to me in five months. If we haven’t found any, we will have a credibility problem.’”

“If that opinion were right, we would have to accept that our 18th-century constitution is not the enduring marvel of statesmanship we suppose but an anachronistic, crippling burden we cannot escape, a straitjacket that makes it impossible for us to achieve a just national society.”

“This case is about reacting to the other side and taking an opposing position.”

“Honesty requires that we recognize that a wealthy minority is being lavishly over-compensated by both the private sector and government policy and not because they have worked harder.”

“Whether it’s tax credits, domestic nutrition programs, foreign assistance, or international food aid, these programs work.”

Payday lenders also have contributed $162,500 to a super PAC backing Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney, who has pledged to repeal Dodd-Frank.”

“A Romney administration’s revenue agenda would look a lot like President George W. Bush’s, just more so.”

Mitt Romney served as Eliza Dushku’s bishop when she was growing up.”

“When we remember history with gay friends, I think it’s pretty easy to see that we don’t want to be counted among those Christians who have organized themselves against homosexuals.”

“We aren’t talking about changing church teaching, but witnessing to church teaching, demonstrating the gospel of inclusion.”

“This is not to say that the writers of the New Testament specifically envisaged a time when their books would be collected together and form something like what we now know as the canon. I doubt very much if such an idea ever crossed their minds.”

“They want the free counsel you get from the preacher and as expected, they are getting their money’s worth.”

That’s the deeper problem with the ‘sex will be great if you wait’ dynamic that some seem to be advocating in the church world. It buys into the idea that sex is about ‘me.’”

Ray D’Arcy wasn’t wrong.

Here is a play waiting to be written: “Since he couldn’t save her, Lane began patrolling the cliffs daily, looking for other distraught souls at the end of their (proverbial) ropes.”

(Roy Orbison was born April 23, 1936.)

    Really? So calling for impeachment before a candidate actually assumes the office might be because of a reason other than aversion to the candidate’s race?  Thanks for clarifying.

    So now you want me to believe that you can’t tell the difference between “might be” and “is”? Given your demonstrated lack of rational thinking skills I guess that could be the case, but do you really want to advertise it?

    Now I get it.  They’re racists because you say so. 

    The more you go on this way the more I come to believe that option 2 is the correct answer: you are a racist trying to cover for other racists.

    I guess you must because you never get any smart or less offensive and you never stop talking.

    Aw, gee.  That’s so Lori of you.  I like you, too!

    Look, you’ll understand aunursa a lot better once you realize that every post is just a rephrase of “Liberals do it too! Gotcha!”

    Racist republicans oppose black democrats because they are racist and we call them on it, so, aunursa pretends to think that the ONLY reason we called them on being racist is that their victims were black, and therefore decides it’s fair game to accuse democrats who attack republican ASSHOLES who JUST HAPPEN to be black of being racist. Because aunursa’s only goal is to be able to say “Nya-nya! You did it too! Gotcha!”, and that precludes acknowledging that we might have another reason for accuding the republicans of racism than “the victim was black”.  Over and over, the same pattern: Republicans do X because of Y, we call them on it. Democrats do X’ (which is NOT X, but is in some minor way similar) for reasons entirely unlike Y, and aunursa shouts “SEE! DEMOCRATS DID X! THEY ARE JUST AS BAD AS REPUBLICANS! ONLY WORSE BECAUSE THEY ARE ALSO HYPOCRITES!”

     Aw gee. Pulling out the cutsie-poo. That’s so aunursa of you. All the post needed was a poll.

    Oh, I know. I just keep hoping that he’ll up his game a teeny, tiny bit or at least pull out something slightly more interesting. Obviously that’s not going to happen and I need to just let it go.

    To be fair, aunursa was discussing the fact that Repubs field black and Hispanic candidates and Clarence Thomas is very obviously Republican.

    What aunursa fails to notice is that this kind of thing is the political analogue of what the union folks call “surface bargaining”: failing to substantively engage in any meaningful way, instead just creating the appearance of such.

    Clarence Thomas is famously reported to have credited his success to affirmative action. How curious that he is now so eager to curry favor with the poltiical right that he opposes it today. (I suspect that he is banking on lucrative jobs once he finally retires)
