Words of wisdom

"I'm fed up to the ears with old men dreaming up wars for young men to die in."

-George McGovern




"What a cruel thing is war: to separate and destroy families and friends, and mar the purest joys and happiness God has granted us in this world; to fill our hearts with hatred instead of love for our neighbors, and to devastate the fair face of this beautiful world."

-Robert E. Lee
(In A Letter To His Wife)




"The direct use of force is such a poor solution to any problem, it is generally employed only by small children and large nations."

-David Friedman


"When the power of love overcomes the love of power the world will know peace."

-Jimi Hendrix




“This I command you, to love one another.”

-Jesus

i saw a report where they were unveiling the next model of war plane. it was surrounded in brightly colored lights and shined like a brand new dime. all that was missing were the lovely ladies in skimpy gown lounging around and caressing the nose cones like it was a big fat phallic symbol.

ps my brother is in the process of leaving bagland. he iss one of the peripheral americans there who are armtwisted/blackmailed into being there under threat of losing their job. forget about terrorists taking your freedom, your safety, your life, your home. the american government will take care of that for you if you dont do what they say.

shalom.

I am wondering if Christianity will recover from the PR disaster that is George W. Bush.

Prof,

Are you aware that you are using a picture of Ralph Reed?

He was, at one time, the leader of the Christian Coalition.

Fortunately that organization is nearing moral and financial bankruptcy.

Does anybody know whether Mr Reed is indeed involved in a war on gamblin' nowadays? I am not a US resident, so I only use his mug because I like his smirk.

Okay, I will admit it: I am Ralph Reed and since my last sojourn in the spotlight I have joined the Democratic Party, because I thought that, in the interest of balance in American politics, more people who are to the left of Joe Lieberman should join the Democratic Party. That is how I came across this lefty blog.
