The winter solstice is passed. Days are becoming longer again. I could not wait. There is confusion again in liberal ranks about the meaning of Christmas, I think. This time, it’s not meteorological confusion, it’s theological confusion. I want peace on earth too but not for those who killed us before and don’t miss a chance to tell us they will kill us again as soon as they can. I wish them a slow and painful death, or they can repent and deliver themselves to justice if they prefer. The fact is that there is no ethical system that requires that you love your neighbor if he keeps trying to set your house on fire and burn your children. Correct me if I am wrong.
I am fairly proud of the Republican senators. Not one of them could be bought off. A friend of mine who was reared in the Middle East is an astute observer of international and of American news. Here is his reaction to the Senate passing of the 200-plus page health insurance boondoggle: Al Qaida won one, finally!
Soon on this blog: Doctor Jacques’ Obama administration summary.
Merry Christmas if you are a friend of mine or of America. If not, see above.
