TURN, TURN, TURN
WAIT FOR IT!
To Everything, There Is A Season . . .
I'd be more likely to quote Pete Seeger than the Bible, and I'd never quote him. But there's "a time for every purpose under heaven." You may have to become really old to see some things come around. But it's one of the few pleasures of aging. Sometimes, it almost seems like justice; even poetic.
To see the mealy-mouthed pseudo-Christians of the extreme right wing in America coming to justice is a great affirmation of what has been espoused and upheld by all those who truly believe Christian principles, even if they don't believe in God. To see Bible-thumping hypocrites and money-grubbing, power-mad scum being exposed for what they are, at long last; what a joyous thing! To see the anti-Christ wannabee, Dubya, humiliated on a daily basis after years of his insufferable arrogance, ah, what a relief, like lancing a boil.
Too bad so many people had to die, before Dumbya was exposed. Worse, many more will die before he is run out of town on a rail. And then we have a bunch of Democrats competing to see who can kill the most in the next Administration. Funny how the circle turns around. Or not.

2:19: And who knoweth whether he shall be a wise man or a fool? yet shall he have rule over all my labour wherein I have laboured, and wherein I have shewed myself wise under the sun. This is also vanity.

4:1: So I returned, and considered all the oppressions that are done under the sun: and behold the tears of such as were oppressed, and they had no comforter; and on the side of their oppressors there was power; but they had no comforter.

5:12: The sleep of a labouring man is sweet, whether he eat little or much: but the abundance of the rich will not suffer him to sleep.

6:4: For he cometh in with vanity, and departeth in darkness, and his name shall be covered with darkness.
"German lawyer to file Rumsfeld abuse suit in Spain"
7:8: Better is the end of a thing than the beginning thereof: and the patient in spirit is better than the proud in spirit.
7:15: All things have I seen in the days of my vanity: there is a just man that perisheth in his righteousness, and there is a wicked man that prolongeth his life in his wickedness.
"Bush: U.S. Patience on N. Korea Limited"
8:4: Where the word of a king is, there is power: and who may say unto him, What doest thou?
8:6: Because to every purpose there is time and judgment, therefore the misery of man is great upon him.
"Tenet Details Efforts to Justify Invading Iraq"
9:12: For man also knoweth not his time: as the fishes that are taken in an evil net, and as the birds that are caught in the snare; so are the sons of men snared in an evil time, when it falleth suddenly upon them.
9:18: Wisdom is better than weapons of war: but one sinner destroyeth much good.
"Cheney defends Iraq policy"
10:5: There is an evil which I have seen under the sun, as an error which proceedeth from the ruler:
10:6: Folly is set in great dignity, and the rich sit in low place.
10:11: Surely the serpent will bite without enchantment; and a babbler is no better.
10:12: The words of a wise man's mouth are gracious; but the lips of a fool will swallow up himself.
10:13: The beginning of the words of his mouth is foolishness: and the end of his talk is mischievous madness.
"Bush to Democrats: Do not 'test my will' on Iraq"
11:8: But if a man live many years, and rejoice in them all; yet let him remember the days of darkness; for they shall be many. All that cometh is vanity.
"U.S. aid official linked to call-girl ring resigns"
12:14: For God shall bring every work into judgment, with every secret thing, whether it be good, or whether it be evil.
"C.I.A. Held Qaeda Leader in Secret Jail for Months"
3:12: I know that there is no good in them, but for a man to rejoice, and to do good in his life.
3:1: To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven:
3:2: A time to be born, and a time to die; a time to plant, and a time to pluck up that which is planted;
3:3: A time to kill, and a time to heal; a time to break down, and a time to build up;
3:4: A time to weep, and a time to laugh; a time to mourn, and a time to dance;
3:5: A time to cast away stones, and a time to gather stones together; a time to embrace, and a time to refrain from embracing;
3:6: A time to get, and a time to lose; a time to keep, and a time to cast away;
3:7: A time to rend, and a time to sew; a time to keep silence, and a time to speak;
3:8: A time to love, and a time to hate; a time of war, and a time of peace.
