Humility

I'm thinkin' that Morpheus might be wrong: Neo is not "the one."

"How can you say that?!"

Agent Smith is totally kicking his ass. And the machines are digging. Currently:

"DeLay: To Serve Well is to Serve Humbly; Asks for Prayers for Congress on National Day of Prayer "

Here.

"Wow. You're right."

Where to start?
WASHINGTON, May 5 /U.S. Newswire/ -- House Majority Leader Tom DeLay (R-Texas) today delivered remarks on the importance of humility in public service and asked for continued prayers for the U.S. Congress at the annual National Day of Prayer service. Below are excerpts from his remarks.
Ladies and gentlemen, the Reverend Tom DeLay:
"No man or woman of any faith or of no faith can truly love, truly serve, truly persevere, truly dare mighty deeds, truly hope for the future or truly honor the past, without a humble heart."
SUBTEXT: Except for me. I can dare mighty deeds because I raise SO MUCH MORE MONEY than the rest of you poor bastards.

So y'all can suck it.
"So it is for humility, then, that, on behalf of the legislative branch -- both houses, both parties -- I ask for your prayers today. Because the only way we can serve well is to serve humbly, as servants both to God and our nation."
SUBTEXT: Hey, Dems! Kiss my ass! I ain't goin' NOwhere.

Suck it!
"For all the troubles in our world today, we can never forget that humanity has never before possessed a greater capacity for virtue than at this moment. With a richer, healthier, and more populous planet than at any time in history, mankind has never been blessed with a greater garden, nor with greater means of protecting it.
SUBTEXT: The world is a garden, I'm the farmer, and it's time to do some motherfucking harvesting.

And if you don't like it...suck it!
"And while all these gifts carry with them unprecedented temptations toward pride, so do they carry unprecedented OPPORTUNITIES for humble service - here in Congress, across America, and around the world in the hearts of all people of all faiths.
SUBTEXT: Opportunities for humble service meaning...we have the OPPORTUNITY to take this nation back to the 19th century. So let's do it.

But those that don't wanna...can SUCK it!
"Think of what we could accomplish if we checked our pride at the door, if collectively we all spent less time taking credit and more time deserving it. If we spent less time ducking responsibility and more time welcoming it. If we spent less time on our soapboxes and more time on our knees."
SUBTEXT: Think of what we could accomplish if we got rid of all the Democrats. And the liberals. And the mud people. And had a theocracy.

Suck IT!
"No matter what your faith, no matter what your political persuasion, your prayers for our increased humility, for our ever-humbler service to God and neighbor are needed and wanted."
Agreed.

"What does Tom mean by 'ever-humbler' service to God?"

Ever-REPUBLICAN.

"Right."

God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I can not change (Tom DeLay, the Bushies, that one girl), the courage to change the things I can (me), and the wisdom to know the difference.

"THEN QUIT BLOGGING, MY SON. IT WILL HELP TO REDUCE YOUR BLOOD PRESSURE."

Yeah. Thanks.

More later...
