"How beautiful it is to do nothing, and to rest afterward."

[Spanish Proverb]

Ius luxuriae publice datum est

(The right to looseness has been officially given)

"Everyone carries a part of society on his shoulders," wrote Ludwig von Mises, "no one is relieved of his share of responsibility by others. And no one can find a safe way for himself if society is sweeping towards destruction. Therefore everyone, in his own interest, must thrust himself vigorously into the intellectual battle."

Apparently, the crossword puzzle that disappeared from the blog, came back.

I am tired and cranky and, therefore, honest

I had something else planned for today. I changed my mind because:

1. I received some bad news concerning my brother-in-law's cancer battle.
2. There's a  fiscal crisis looming.

I won't go into my brother-in-law's problems. We all know, or have known, people battling cancer and so you know what I am feeling about that right now.

As for the fiscal crisis, I am not optimistic. Democrats are poised to blame Republicans regardless of what happens and Republicans are up against a wall because they know they will be blamed.

At this point, I am in favor of letting whatever will happen happen. The only thing Congress will do is try to "kick the can" down the road. There will be no long term solution magically appearing in the next few weeks.

Pretend it is a band-aid on a scrape on your knee. And it needs to be changed. Yank it off!
