Enjoy the silence!
Update: I've survived three days and, as I sent them off to the theatre tonight, had a few hours for a few posts (found below). Don't know if I'll be back before Sunday.
"I would probably have to say yes, that the Constitution established the United States of America as a Christian nation."
"This is my interpretation. Everybody can think whatever they want."And I shall, Ms. DeLozier, I shall.
"Where's Mandela? Well Mandela's dead because Saddam Hussein killed all the Mandela's."
"Nearly 30,000 American lives are lost to gun violence each year—a number far higher than in any other developed country. Since 1963, more Americans died by gunfire than perished in combat in the whole of the 20th century.
The impact goes far beyond the dead and injured. Gun violence reaches across borders and jurisdictions and compromises the safety of everyone along the way. No other industrialized country suffers as many gun fatalities and injuries as the United States. And no community or person in America is immune.
Just who the hell is this Sherri Shepherd woman and how does someone who admits that she would have to go to the library if her child asked her if the world is round end up on the telly?
And people ask "what's wrong with America?". Well you need ask no longer.
"There are just some things you can’t teach out of books...Seeing it and feeling it is just so much more beneficial."
"...all the odds are on the man who is, intrinsically, the most devious and mediocre — the man who can most easily (and) adeptly disperse the notion that his mind is a virtual vacuum. The presidency tends, year by year, to go to such men. As democracy is perfected, the office represents, more closely, the inner soul of the people. We move toward a lofty ideal. On some great and glorious day, the plain folks of the land will reach their heart's desire at last, and the White House will be adorned by a downright moron." (Emphasis mine.)And it took less than a century to come true!
"Our problem is that we have chosen the wrong mindset, the wrong battlefield, the wrong weapons and the wrong strategies to win this campaign. We have chosen to fight an idea, primarily with force."
