Words to live by...

"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.

And the Attacks Begin

First, the media touts New Jersey governor Christie as the most electable of Republicans likely to seek the GOP nomination and then they dig up a scandal. The details, however, are strikingly familiar. Aides are found to have written emails which do not implicate Christie, Christie claims no knowledge but vows to get to the bottom of the problem. The media, smelling political blood in the water, engage in a feeding frenzy.

Fast and Furious
The Obamacare website rollout
NSA spying
IRS targeting of conservative groups

(There are more, these are the ones that came quickly to mind)

Obama knew nothing of these until he read of them in the newspaper. But these are "phony scandals" and there is no media frenzy.

But a traffic jam in New Jersey? Oh the horror! The inhumanity! How can we ever cope?
