Quote of the Day

Beware of socialism and nannystaters:

"Of all tyrannies, a tyranny exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It may be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron's cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end, for they do so with the approval of their own conscience." ~ CS Lewis

Spoken like someone who has never lived under the tyranny of the robber barons.

I mean, really.

What is it about folks these days that cannot see the obvious? It's like they do not want command of their own lives and want to be led around like sheeple.

Choose your poison folks, it's Hillary or Obama.

Who they? The "other?"

Wow...I actually totally agree here, Pam. Awesome, I knew it would happen some day.

Morality-based intrusion into the choices about our bodies, who we want to marry, what we want to smoke within the confines of our homes, whether we wear seatbelts -- as long as the public has all the information, I think we should be able to make our own choices.

Plus CS Lewis is just a fascinating writer.
