  • Lobby leans on Schumer to block Hagel-- now that Ackerman, Berman, Frank, Weiner, Rothman and Lieberman are gone
    • Religion is vision. Government is management. They intersect frequently, but come from opposite sides of the brain.
      The problem with monotheism in the first place is that a spiritual absolute would be the source from which we rise, not an ideal from which we fell. Keep in mind it was the polytheists who first formalized democracy. When the religion has gods arguing, government reflects this. Historically monotheism mostly just validates monarchy and other forms of top down authority.
      That Israel unmoored is spinning into a vortex is more physics than sociology. In most other religions, being the "Chosen" is not always a good thing. Jews have spent thousands of years living a Greek Tragedy. Maybe they should take some of the lessons to heart.
