"Charity suffereth long, and is kind; charity envieth not; charity vaunteth not itself, is not puffed up, Doth not behave itself unseemly, seeketh not its own, is not easily provoked, thinketh no evil; Rejoiceth not in iniquity, but rejoiceth in the truth" -Cor 13
"if by supporting the rights of mankind... I shall contribute to save from the agonies of death one unfortunate victim of tyranny, or of ignorance, equally fatal, his blessing and tears of transport will be a sufficient consolation to me for the contempt of all mankind."-Marchese di Beccaria
"Raise your words, not voice. It is rain that grows flowers, not thunder." -Rumi

The Parable of Pizza on the Train via Stu & Pat, 4th Hour 8-29-12

  • Stu: A friend of mine, Shawn, [& I] we were out, it was a late night out, one of those a late drinking night I believe. And leaving New York City, he departed, it was, I dunno it hadda be one or two in the morning at this point & the whole group broke up...
  • Pat: and you don't really drink that much do you?
  • Stu: No, but uh this particular evening
  • Pat: You had?
  • Stu: I had many drinks I'd say at that point. And Shawn decided to take the train home, as he had to, I think he lives in New Jersey somewhere, and he was on the train and before he got on the train he was going to buy some pizza, and he wanted a couple of slices and as a capitalist he decided to look at the pricing mechanisms and make an important decision, which was not to buy two slices of pizza or three slices of pizza but to buy a large pizza. And Shawn the brilliant business man that he is, got on the train and started eating his pizza which he you know, he bought it for like fifteen dollars or something like that, and bought the pizza, ate three slices of pizza as he was planning, sold four slices of pizza to individual people on the train for five dollars a slice, because they were also comming home from a late night of drinking,
  • Pat: genius
  • Stu: and then to make a point to the other people for criticizing him for selling it to them at such a high price, he gave one of the slices away to another person who didn't have the money, and said, 'this is what a capitalist does I've made a profit and now I'm giving some to charity.' and he actually made that announcement drunkenly on the train.
  • Pat: Awesome
  • Stu: That's a solid evening right there. He paid for his train ticket he paid for the pizza, pocketed a little bit of money for himself and gave something away to charity, That's America.

“There were some things that stick out to me as flares of ‘caution’ but the one thing we should be reckless with is our defense of people who have opinions that we don’t agree with. I have never asked for a boycott. I have never asked for someone to be fired…. If we can’t meet on the battlefield of ideas, as George Washington said, if we can’t speak to each other openly. If we are paranoid and watching over our shoulder, we lose the essence of who we are. And we will never be a great nation again.”

You can see Glenn getting rather frustrated when whitey doesn’t specify the stark unknown number difference between those committed based on a political statement and those legitimately committed.
