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.

And The Rich Get Richer

Have you heard about Oprah Winfrey's recent windfall? She just made $72 Million on Weight Watcher's stock.

Let me quote from the article above: "Weight Watchers (WTW) announced Monday that Winfrey bought 6.4 million shares at $6.79 a share, which was Friday's closing price." She was already the richest woman in the country (or so it seems) but I guess that isn't enough. She's worth at least $3 Billion.

So why aren't liberals villifying her? Or those actors in Hollywood who get $20 Million a picture?

I guess because most people don't want to accept that social-rank fascism comes in all races and ideologies.
