***** FB dialog: ' Hitler would have done more good than Obama,'  Facebook correspondants replied to my question. My reply, ' Well, if we understand each other, then we are totally, completely, absolutely, 100% on opposite sides on this issue, this crucial issue. There are many people, though an infinitesimal percentage, there are many people throughout history that I admire greatly. In US politics I admire Lincoln and FDR. I think they both did immense evil, but in a consummately evil system. And I think out of that consummately evil system they clawed significant good, more than anyone before or since, until Barack Obama. Even they could not have clawed as much good out of the hell hole that is American citizenry and the American political elite, than has Barack Obama. I abhor much about his administration. But I refuse to allow myself the grotesque irresponsibility of ignoring the most evil of systems in which he, any president, every president, is forced to operate. And the most evil part of the system, the very cause of the evil, is the death of the soul of the American citizenry. We are the zombie apocalypse. He had no one to lead. He had no citizen army to form for good. He has operated alone and done tremendous good on his own. Both Lincoln and FDR had powerful citizen armies pushing in the direction of good.  Not Obama.'

Pope Francis: " There are two paths in life: the path exclusion of persons from our community and the path of inclusion. The first can be little but is the root of all wars: all calamities, all wars, begin with an exclusion. One is excluded from the international community, but also from families, from friends – How many fights there are! – and the path that makes us see Jesus and teaches us Jesus is quite another, it is contrary to the other: to include.”

Liberals, why the f*** are you surprised that un educated, ignorant, poor white Americans are not voting for your candidates? What solidarity do you live with them? None. You ridicule them, live above them, manipulate them, patronize them, condescend to them, exploit them from your universities and ivory towers and engineering groups and computer industry jobs and bureaucratic jobs... that do nothing for them and just give you a comfy cushy job... you are just part of the machine making their lives, their futures, their ability to compete for a decent life that much less likely. No, the crumbs that you throw, the crumbs that you allowed to fall to them after your too-large salaries... Don't count.

regarding the blindness increasing in my eyes: an update to my general practitioner....

The opthamologist at Georgetown yesterday, first time she had seen me, seemed shocked and at a loss as to how my eyesight could have degenerated so rapidly in just the last three weeks. It was three or four weeks ago that I saw the neuro opthamologist. She performed tests on me that had not been performed before, finding AMD in both eyes, particularly the left eye, and cataracts in both eyes, particularly the left eye. Next week I meet with a specialist at Georgetown who will evaluate whether cataracts are the primary problem and whether surgery is indicated. I'm guessing, from what I see online, that I will hope that the answer is yes because it looks like if it is AMD that is primarily making the left I go blind that that is far less treatable. I provide this just as an update for you. I am concerned because as you know my only interest in life is in serving and I would be severely crippled if I lost eyesight. But as you know, I'm a big boy, and I'll handle whatever comes my way. I'm sure that I am getting excellent treatment although if you think of any specialists that I should be seeing other than Georgetown I'm sure you will let me know. I will update you after next Tuesday's appointment at Georgetown.
