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.

Why Should We Worry?

In a rebuke allegedly aimed at president Obama, the House passed a bill that requires a vetting process be in place before any Syrian refugees are admitted to the U.S.

Democrats opposing the GOP bill said the U.S. has no business abandoning its age-old values, including being a safe haven for people fleeing countries racked by violence. The Islamic State has claimed responsibility for the Paris attacks and controls vast swathes of Syria and Iraq, despite a growing military campaign against them by the U.S. and other nations.

Note that the bill only requires a vetting process be in place and does not prevent any refugees from coming here.

I would find the administration's words of how safe it would be to allow them in more sincere if Obama promised to resign if any of the refugees commited an act of terror.

I won't hold my breath waiting for that announcement.

How do we all want to live, politically correct or safe ?

I wouldn't mind if a few Syrians or other Muslims came to our town to live. But I agree, I would like some govt. agency to make sure they're not terrorists or criminals or other dangerous people.

Just the other day, Obama chided Republicans for fearing widows and babies... ignoring the 47 Democrats who voted for the demand that a vetting process be in place. And yet 79% of the immigrants proposed are men.
