The EU

Google says the EU requires a notice of cookie use (by Google) and says they have posted a notice. I don't see it. If cookies bother you, go elsewhere. If the EU bothers you, emigrate. If you live outside the EU, don't go there.

Today's Gospel.

For John, BLUFReading Scripture is rewarding even if you aren't a Believer.  Nothing to see here; just move along.

Today was the 23rd Sunday in Ordinary Time.  The Gospel was St Luke, 14:25-33.  Part of it applies to the current imbroglio over Syria, chemical weapons and the appropriate US response:
Which of you wishing to construct a tower does not first sit down and calculate the cost to see if there is enough for its completion?  Otherwise, after laying the foundation and finding himself unable to finish the work the onlookers should laugh at him and say, 'This one began to build but did not have the resources to finish.'
The next verse is about a king marching into battle.  The same point, different flavor.

I would like to hear our leaders in the Administration lay out the costs if things don't go as planned.  Perhaps they can convince me they have "calculated the costs".

Regards  —  Cliff

There is no cost consideration. The liberal mindset figures that if what they attempt fails, it is only because the enterprise created to accomplish the act was not big enough or had enough power...thus....the plan B will also be based on the construct that bigger is better and cost is irrelevant.
