Quote of the day...er...week...umm...hey, look, a quote!!

Tibi gratias agimus quod nihil fumas.

It says "...freedom of...", not "...freedom from...".

"It's amazing to me how many people think that voting to have the government give poor people money is compassion. Helping poor and suffering people is compassion. Voting for our government to use guns to give money to help poor and suffering people is immoral self-righteous bullying laziness. People need to be fed, medicated, educated, clothed, and sheltered, and if we're compassionate we'll help them, but you get no moral credit for forcing other people to do what you think is right. There is great joy in helping people, but no joy in doing it at gunpoint." - Penn Jillette

Homeschooler's rant

A friend sent me this link, and I simply must share. Whether you homeschool or not, go look and have a chuckle...

Kyddryn,

I just read your post on Ree's blog, and it took my breath away. I read a lot of them, but yours was the only one I followed. You obviously have a gift.

I have bookmarked your site, and when I have more time I'll come back.

Thank you,

Laurie

Thanks a ton for the link to Family Hack. We are thrilled you liked the post and hope you'll pop by again sometime to see what kind of mess we're making.

Best,
Michael

Nice to see Michael Davis thanking you for the link to his blog. I wonder if he thanked the author of the original wish list before he "borrowed" it in its entirety for his web site?

What a great guy!

He credits the magazine wherein he found the rant, which credits the original author. He also gives a link to the original article.

I love this rant - my boy's only just five and I've had to answer a number of the questions and comments mentioned in the rant!
