Quote of the Month

When we give billions to bail out farmers, it’s called being “fair”. Billions to bail out the banks, “good for the economy”. But money for the homeless veterans, health insurance for the sick or social security for the elderly? Oh my god no! That’s socialism! – Dave Vescio

Still True

Woe is me! For I am like those who gather summer fruits, Like those who glean vintage grapes; There is no cluster to eat Of the first-ripe fruit which my soul desires. 

The faithful man has perished from the earth, And there is no one upright among men. They all lie in wait for blood; Every man hunts his brother with a net. That they may successfully do evil with both hands– The prince asks for gifts, The judge seeks a bribe, And the great man utters his evil desire; So they scheme together. The best of them is like a brier; The most upright is sharper than a thorn hedge; The day of your watchman and your punishment comes; Now shall be their perplexity. 

Do not trust in a friend; Do not put your confidence in a companion; Guard the doors of your mouth From her who lies in your bosom. For son dishonors father, Daughter rises against her mother, Daughter-in-law against her mother-in-law; A man’s enemies are the men of his own household.  Therefore I will look to the LORD; I will wait for the God of my salvation; My God will hear me. (Mic. 7:1-7)

This Applies to So Many Books These Days…
