Boast Not of Leaders

I don't think I've ever quoted a Bible verse on this blog in the nearly eight years that I've been blogging.  Other bloggers do it for sure.  But today's first reading was as fitting as it can get given the abysmal political leadership on display across the world.
Do not deceive yourselves. If any of you think you are wise by the standards of this age, you should become “fools” so that you may become wise.
For the wisdom of this world is foolishness in God’s sight. As it is written: “He catches the wise in their craftiness” and again, “The Lord knows that the thoughts of the wise are futile.” So then, no more boasting about human leaders!
Indeed, we have little to boast about in our leaders.

As it relates to one political leader of note.  The press is starting to notice a world in disarray and, in some quarters, placing some culpability.   Of course, I love to say I told ya' so, so, here it is.  I told ya so.
