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

Something to Think About

Is it better to put your children in a car and drive home drunk, or to sit out the drunk or spend the night in someone else's house until you're sober?  Do you listen to your pride and leave so your hosts don't see you drunk, or do you listen to your good sense and stay where you are so you're not endangering yourself, your kids, and everyone else on the road?

What kind of world, what kind of society, do we live in that anyone would feel the need to make such a choice?

What if you just thought about your kids and didn't get drunk?

Hmmm...... I think there are 3 choices to this.

1) Have a DD
2) If no DD, then stay where you are & sober up
3) Can't do #1 or #2, then don't freaking drink

Sounds like a 'stupid moron' to risk your life, your children's lives & everyone else!!
