"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.

The Big Question in the news articles seems to be "Can the GOP govern?" And, to read the comments and the tone of the articles I've read, the answer is "No!" All this tells me is that the Left is angry about losing the mid-term elections last year. Of course, the GOP can govern... Maybe not in the way the left wants but they can definitely govern. And, perhaps, that is just what we need and deserve. I see a lot of comments fretting about the future but these commenters shouldn't be so afraid. We do pretty much what we want in this country, in spite of government trying to control us. And that, my friends, is what the Founding Fathers expected and hoped for. I understand the fear on the Left. No one to tell them what to do, to comfort them, to take care of them... Why, it's like losing one's parents! But government is not supposed to be the parent for its people... We fought against that concept during the Revolution. But the ensuing 238 years has changed us into something else; from independent, pioneering, people who sought challenges into people who want the government to replace the parents they always wanted. And all the while demanding dignity and respect.
