Senator Blunt Is Contagious. Plague Alert!

Mildred Purse is a Back Bay Republican with deep roots

Now that I have your attention, it is true. A noxious cloud emanates from this gentleman. Beware. Do not go near. I am told it is called rectitude or something like that.
Late Update Confirmation Pending
I am told the plague has toughed each of the GOP presidential hopefuls.

See no child as the product of wedlock.

Abba's Way: 47 On Child and Marriage:

Where to begin? Well I’ll start at the end.
See no child as the product of wedlock.
See each child as but Abba’s jealous claim.
See marriage as a word people have made
To speak whatever language they prefer.
See children as those whom adults once were.
Despair of sorting through parental blames,
A simple reason would spare us this play.
But passion is not simple, nor is rage.
And reason will be crushed, kids made to pay,

It is children Abba is concerned with and the treatment of children upon which our humanity is judged. This is what makes today's "Christian" concern with conception so hypocritical. If the church protected all children on earth it would have no time for this silliness. If you think this has no mandate Biblically, look to the gospels.

Why then are children such an afterthought?

Abba's Way: 47 On Child and Marriage:
What of infatuation? Is that love? And if so, what of children? Of the child? Children are such brats, imperious. Children are no noisy, shut them up. Why can’t we have time just for ourselves? I’m stuck here all day with these awful kids. Now I am left alone. How to survive? Marriage and family, the mantra goes. Why then are children such an afterthought?

What of infatuation? Is that love?

Abba's Way: 47 On Child and Marriage:
A bond to win protection from the state. Should love abate, the state divides the spoils. Prenuptials define how deep love runs. What of infatuation? Is that love?

Do we not know that marriage is for “love”?

Abba's Way: 47 On Child and Marriage:

Do we not know that marriage is for “love”?
Why then is love so adversarial?

What can be said of marriage and the child?

Abba's Way: 47 On Child and Marriage:
What can be said of marriage and the child? The notion that a child takes precedence Is heresy to self-indulgent ears.

Those who know Abba know life survives

Abba's Way: 46.On Death:
Those who know Abba know life survives Without demanding knowledge beyond death. Those for whom Abba lives inwardly Say yes to what in life lives beyond time. Yes to work that brings visions alive, Yes to play that plumbs the joys inside; And yes to holy creativity, That moves us past death’s shadows toward the light.

Marriage and family, the mantra goes.

Abba's Way: 47 On Child and Marriage:

Marriage and family, the mantra goes.
Why then are children such an afterthought?
Or like some program to be done from pride?
Or trophies to be always on display?
Or else abandoned in a thousand ways?
How mixed up and how mired in moral cant?

I'd say this is warning enough

Israel Won't Warn U.S. Before Iran Strike - Digg: "npr.org — Israeli officials say they won't warn the U.S. if they decide to launch a pre-emptive strike against Iranian nuclear facilities, according to one U.S. intelligence official familiar with the discussions. The pronouncement, delivered in a series of private, top-level conversations, sets a tense tone ahead of meetings in the coming days at the White House and Capitol Hill."

Bob Dylan's "License to Kill" attains its greatest relevance now

Bob Dylan's songs are a total work and criticism that fails to see this, celebrating some halcyon era of great Dylan followed by lapses, misses the reality. 
"License to Kill" attains its greatest relevance now when Acts of Valor is splayed across the movie screens showing us the dehumanizing reality of our world. Yes I know that without Seals we would not have gotten Osama. But I feel the price we may pay is too great. "License to Kill" is an accurate evocation of a world where we foist off on those who make it through the training the ... license to kill.
This has become the new war, along with the person-less drones.
We have no ethic for this, no understanding of its karmic potential.
I shall listen again and again to this song for a nudge in the direction of sanity in the insane world where a war on drugs is deemed sane. And if we are not appropriately manipulated, add in armageddon terror scenarios.
UPDATE
Michael Gray disses this song without apparently being w…

Come on Russ

Poll: Democrats Gaining Momentum In Wisconsin Recall | National Memo | Breaking News, Smart Politics:
"One Democrat who could provide that very strong campaign is former Senator Russ Feingold. According to the poll, Feingold would hold a 52 - 45 percent advantage over Walker if he decided to run. Feingold has said that he won't join the race, but these numbers make it clear that he would be the Democrats' strongest candidate."

Wanna talk about government that you like?

The Gods of Ancient Times Were Consultants

Herodotus meets Ellroy: An Interval for Gods and Consultants:

"If you add up all the various experts who are paid to tell people and corporations and institutions and governments what to expect, how to achieve things and how best to proceed, you have the role of the gods in ancient times.

And the very same compensation was given. Gold in whatever form."

Abba within is very love itself

Abba's Way: 51. On Love of Neighbor:

Abba within is very love itself;
Therefore love of yourself is fair and wise.
Accepting this is your beginning point;
To know that you are loved beyond all loves.
