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

Tibi gratias agimus quod nihil fumas.

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

Nolite te bastardes carburundorum!

"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

Another Kind of Vote

Don't worry - the conclusion to the (probably boring unless you're into cats and strays and acts of critter kindness) kitty story will be up tomorrow.

Meanwhile, how about taking part in a different kind of voting? There's some kind of blog award thingy going on, and one of the blogs I adore is in the running for Best Canadian Blog. Yep, I read blogs from Canada - thanks to NAFTA, there's no tariff on them, so why not??

Any way, if you'd like to make a Canadian redneck's day, go check out Tanis at Attack of the Redneck Mommy and then vote for her (scroll down until you find the link to Best Canadian Blogger, click, then vote). She's in second place right now, and if all three of us vote for her every day (unlike Presidential elections, in this one you may vote daily), she could win...or at least make it a close finish!

Oh, and the NAFTA comment? Joking, y'all - I not that clueless!

Hurrah, thanks MereCat - she's a terrific writer who's had a judicious helping of Hell in the last year...she deserves to win!
