      in the White House and I know I'm dreaming. When I wrote it I pictured the kind lady at our work who is at the front desk and who answers the phones. She's been there forever through many changes of management.

      Is there any chance such a person would still be a part of this White House staff? Don't know.

      there is a fine distinction to be made.  

      to have a soul one must have a spark of the divine.  not one individual in this white house fits that criteria.  Quite the contrary.  they all, individually and collectively, commune and have sexual congress with minions of the devil, I tell you true.

      If we're dumb. Then God is dumb. And maybe a little ugly on the side.

      •  To this I must humbly disagree. (2+ / 0-)

        ALL have a spark of the divine, and it is the lack of recognition of that spark in others or in ourselves that sends any one of us down the perilous road to inhumanity.

        Those in power may have lost their way, but in that case I take it as my duty to try to help them find that spark again.  They are human, however misguided - and I refuse to speak of them or treat them otherwise.  Then, you see, I will have lost my way, too.
