So the Vatican is to canonise the blessed Teresa – the nun who believed that suffering from poverty and starvation, and from medical conditions, was a gift from God.

Imagine

Imagine no religion, famously wrote John Lennon

Imagine no 9/11.
No protestant-catholic mayhem in the troubles of Northern Ireland.
No Israel- Palestine conflict.
No European wars of religion.
No intellectuals (heretics) being burnt at the stake by the church.
No trial of  Galileo for championing Copernicus.
No burning at the stake for Giordano Bruno  for championing Copernicus.
No bloodthirsty crusaders carrying out their contract with various mad popes.
No Mohammad spreading Islam by the sword and the fear of death.
No poor mixed up Jesus imagining that the genocidal psychopath from the early bible was his father.
No War on Terror.

Imagine.

 

Donald Trump

Has Donald Trump thought it through? If he builds a great big wall along the Mexican border – how are the Americans going to get their drug fix? Doesn’t he know that the filthy rich of Wall Street can’t throw a party without a trough full of coke to get them in the mood – along with a bus-load of hookers? No self respecting host, from Manhattan to the Hollywood hills, would dream of organising a bash without a bag or two of the white stuff to go with the champagne. Perhaps he’ll get the CIA to take over the drug running operation – make sure the right folks get their share.

Isn’t it ironic that he thinks he can keep Americans safe by banning Muslims, “until we can figure what’s going on.” Well what’s going on Donald is that there have been over one thousand mass shootings in the last one thousand days – by people who believe that it is their constitutional right to bear arms. Does he think that the schools and bowling alleys and the cinemas are being stalked by Muslims with Kalashnikovs that they’ve just bought from the arms department of the local deli along with their falafels?

On the plus side – anyone who can make George W Bush seem like Einstein can’t be all bad – even if it means turning America into a state like 1930’s Nazi Germany.
