    Very nice diary!

    Love thy enemies comes to mind to me too.

    Lo and behold, in the spirit of charity category, another notion appears.

    THEORY: President Obama went to war in Syria (almost) knowing that with such patriotic military activities in progress or recently completed, all this budget and circus torture would never have been attempted! No way ... with flags waving, blood flowing, all the war things.... the billionaire crazies and their paid congresspeople would not DARE try anything.

    Yes, I can see it. The President has a calendar, and over morning coffee one day this might have popped into his head. Not a half bad idea, in retrospect. Maybe he could renege and do it anyway?

    Those who would give up essential Liberty, to purchase a little temporary Safety, deserve neither Liberty nor Safety. -- Benjamin Franklin
