Perpendicular Ponderings


Perpendicular (because all of my life thoughts are either vertical and toward God or horizontal and toward fellow humanity and the earth).

… I had arrived at an understanding of faith that had far more to do with trust than with certainty. I trusted God to be God even if I could not say who God was for sure. I trusted God to sustain the world although I could not say for sure how that happened. I trusted God to hold me and those I loved, in life and in death, without giving me one shred of conclusive evidence that it was so.

For a star to be born, there is one thing that must happen: a gaseous nebula must collapse.

So collapse.
Crumble.
This is not your destruction.

This is your birth.

This is about pleasing a fanatic base and creating ratings for a cable entertainment show that caters to fanatics. Not to mention Darrell Issa is the richest person in Congress and could give a shit about anything that would help people. The 1% in action. The 1% dictating the narrative. The 1% distracting you from real issues.
The politicization of Benghazi, while never raising one issue with the Iraq War, Iraq occupation, Iraq torture program, Iraq budget hitting trillions of unbudgeted dollars [deficits, anyone?], and not to mention many embassy bombings that killed Americans during Bush’s eight years in office, is patently obvious evidence of selling death to benefit your political career and TV ratings.
Darrell Issa is a scumbag without equal.
