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

This is from 2009
I wonder if any of them have seen this video.
And I am forced to wonder how people decide their votes...
" Lerner once again asserted her Fifth Amendment right not to testify, as
she did last May when she was first called to testify. Before she first
spoke at the hearing Wednesday, Issa warned that his committee would
consider whether to hold her in contempt if she declined to testify."
Ms Lerner has every right to plead the Fifth when called before a House
Committee. And we, the average citizens of this country have every
right to read whatever we wish into her refusal to testify. A court and a
jury must not make any inference from that refusal but we are not a
formal court and neither is Congress. We are the Court of Public Opinion and, as such, we can form our opinions as we see fit. Now, the media
would like us to concentrate on the treatment of Representative Elijah
Cummings (D- Md) who sought to disrupt proceedings and make an opening
statement after having declined to do so at the outset of the hearing. Do not be fooled, do not be distracted...
of course, you believe an administration can, and should, intimidate
its political enemies during a campaign (and beyond) by using the power
of the IRS.
Lois Lerner refused to testify (again). Lois Lerner refused to testify (again). Lois Lerner refused to testify (again).
