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

Answer most likely to stump most folks? Survey says: "Mrs. Murphy and the Yeti".

Hugs - I haven't decided whether I want to consider myself tagged or not...

Well, yes, I know it's an odd one - reflective, I think, of myself in general - but I knew a few folks would get it. :-) See you laters!

I get Mrs. Murphy, but I'm not so sure about the Yeti, at least in that context.
