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.

It Makes One Wonder

It turns out that the White House contacted Youtube to ask them to take down the offensive anti-Muslim video clip during the attack on the Benghazi consulate in which 4 Americans died.

"A still-classified State Department e-mail says that one of the first responses from the White House to the Benghazi attack was to contact YouTube to warn of the 'ramifications' of allowing the posting of an anti-Islamic video, according to Rep. Darrell Issa, the Republican chairman of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee."

Yet, the White House maintains that it was the CIA that told them that the video was the cause of the attack. If the CIA was behind the Susan Rice and White House claims that it was the video that instigated the attack, why did the White House contact Youtube that very night... before the CIA had issued such a claim?


Add in the IRS scandal, the "Fast and Furious" scandal  (where guns were supplied to drug cartels in Mexico), and now the VA treatment scandal and you start to wonder who is in charge and why they are so incompetent.

At least I do.
