The more things change ...

Thy rulers are rogues, and cronies of thieves; every one loveth bribes, and followeth after rewards: they hear not the orphan, neither doth the cause of the widow come unto them.

- Isaiah 1:23

Cronies of thieves? Check.

Lovers of bribes & rewards? Check.

Don't care about regular folks? Check.

What happens next? Well, in Isaiah's time, his people were almost annihilated by the Babylonians.

When I first saw "Pulp

When I first saw "Pulp Fiction," I thought, "Damn, that's badass!" Then I looked up Ezekiel 25:17, and realized that it was nothing like this. Gotta had it to Tarantino though, he can write some Old Testament.
