The cannon story will have to wait a bit.
I got to thinkin’ about some good quotes I’ve heard in my travels, and here is a quote that I had on my office wall for a long time:
"Be warned against a spirit of compromise that is but a cloak to cover the nakedness of irresolution and timidity."
If you’re not strong enough to stand up for what you believe, against all comers, then you’re a wussy, & get he hell out out my way.
Then I read this one tonight:
"Of all tyrannies, a tyranny exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It may be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron's cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end, for they do so with the approval of their consciences. " (H/T to CUG)
Both quotes from C.S. Lewis, who knew I was such a fan?
What exactly, will that mean for the victims? (I mean the rest of us) It is comparable to the camel nose under the tent?
You want universal health care? Get out you wallet & wait.
Is it better to be robbed by those you know (fedgov) or than by those you don’t?
We. The People.
Will have a opportunity soon of deciding who will speak for us.
Do you know where your loyalties lie?
This is beginning to piss me off…
The cannon fun will resume, I promise.
