"You may be sure that no sordid compromises nor carrying of waters on both shoulders will see you through.  Those who have the faith had better keep in the state of grace, and those who have neither had better find out what they mean, for in the coming age there will be only one way to stop your trembling knees, and that will be to get down on them and pray.  The most important problem in the world today is your soul, for that is what the struggle is about."

F. J. Sheen


"He prompts you what to say, and then listens to you, and praises you, and encourages you. He bids you mount aloft.  He shows you how to become as gods.  Then he laughs and jokes with you, and gets intimate with you; he takes your hand, and gets his fingers between yours, and grasps them, and then you are his."

J.H.Newman, The Times of Antichrist

The corporate wing of the Democrats and their enablers are incapable of thinking of anything but Russia, and how it must have surely stolen their dreams of power ascendant. If you step back and listen to them, they are as ridiculous as any of the true believers on the Right whom they despise. MSNBC has become as unwatchable to me as Fox News. And that is too bad.

The 'tax reform' toddles on, bringing even greater benefits to corporations who are already enjoying record profits, which they assiduously funnel into dividends and self-enriching stock buybacks.  Their hirelings serve them well, forsaking all others.

Have a pleasant evening.
