"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.
His "crime"? Treating Senators like ordinary citizens. How dare he??? It turns out that "his agency inappropriately searched congressional computers." This upset Queen Diane Feinstein. Sorry, she's not the Queen... we don't have queens.
But it turns out there is an unwritten agreement that the CIA will not spy on Congressional members. The rest of us are fair game apparently, however. No one seems to care that the government is collecting all kind of data on ordinary citizens. That's okay... just don't look closely at the royalty we call "elected officials."
Most American citizens just want to be left alone by the government but that isn't happening, is it? Instead, our lives can be dug into and any secrets we might have should be open to a bureaucrat, or several, who deems it to be in the interests of National Security. But don't do the same with elected officials or they will drag you before a committee and demand answers. If you or I demand answers, we'd end up getting a colonoscopy of the worst kind.
