Put Not Your Trust In Princes

September 2007

There was a little letter in First Things (June/July) from Adriana I. Pena, who says: "Put not your trust in princes [Ps. 146:3].... You [First Things] tie yourself to a political party or a politician [George W. Bush] and you sink or swim with him. Now you are sinking. You gambled and you lost, so do what losing gamblers do: Pay what you owe, leave the table, and don't whine."

We couldn't have said it better ourselves.

It puts us in the mind of that Kenny Rogers song, "The Gambler":

You gotta...know when to fold 'em/

Know when to walk away and know when to run.

Did our prominent orthodox Catholic shills at FT for wars for oil and/or Israel get over doing justice to their paymasters instead of the truth?
I'm sure they're so confident in their arguments that they can't wait for it to blow over. It's painfully long. I feel for them so. Why couldn't it all have been over and done with in a month or so with only a few thousand dead civilians and troops. Well, they can still change their minds
but they can take all the time they want since I don't care what they have to say about anything else either.
