    Heavy sigh.

    Now I’m even more demoralized.

    He sounds exactly like the man we most needed for that post.

    I think I’m going to bundle up against the icy wind of this sunny day and go tromp off my miserable mixture of ire and shame and the razor blades on race cars in my veins from this betrayal by maybe the biggest coward in American politics… our president.

    AIPAC should register as an agent of a foreign government. It’s sole interest in promoting right-wing Zionism and keeping dollars flowing into Israel’s already well lined coffers. It has no interests in what is good for the U.S. independently of Israel.

    AIPAC is indeed an agent of a foreign government…!
    and anybody who does not know or don’t want to admit this fact just does not know what AIPAC exactly is all about. Period.!!!

Timely Reminders

"Those who crusade, not for God in themselves, but against the devil in others, never succeed in making the world better, but leave it either as it was, or sometimes perceptibly worse than what it was, before the crusade began. By thinking primarily of evil we tend, however excellent our intentions, to create occasions for evil to manifest itself."
-- Aldous Huxley

"The only war that matters is the war against the imagination. All others are subsumed by it."
-- Diane DiPrima, "Rant", from Pieces of a Song.

"It is difficult
to get the news from poems
yet men die miserably every day
for lack
of what is found there"
-- William Carlos Williams, "Asphodel, That Greeny Flower"
