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

It's Meme Again...

I'm surrounded by memes...they're following me, I swear. I just started reading a new blog, and this meme was on it. Sigh. At least it is moderately different and interesting.

As always, tag yourself if you like, or just tell me how lame I am in the comments.
~~~~~

Susan said...

I am your loudest friend, do you hear me??

Kyddryn said...

Rob, I have no idea what the author was thinking...and I'm trying very hard not to be bothered by it...

Mum, I live to make you laugh...

Mizz Rene...you're a riot. So...for number two...what leaf would that be? :::blink, blink::: And as for number fifteen, part one...heh... Number twenty...yes, on the beach, too...but I'm not picky about location...it's the PEOPLE who count. Number forty-six, you did a great job...it is brilliant. I'm glad you came to play! As for no 50, I have no idea - I didn't make the dang thing up.

Heh...Susan...you've got some competition...I was teasing, a little. I have some very loud friends, although I think I am the loudest of us...at least when we sing...

Shade and Sweetwater,
K
