Stalin, Obama, and incompetent snow-drivers....

“Everyone agrees that all Americans deserve access to affordable health care,” Mr. Boehner said in a statement, “but is increasing taxes during an economic recession, especially on small businesses, the right way to accomplish that goal?”

Sadly, the answer is NO. No once, No twice, ALWAYS NO.
This reminds me of what happened when Stalin came into power and instituted the "Great Terror" in the late 1930s. He destroyed the vitality of the Russian people by stifling the innovation and ability to adapt. He did this, via murder and expatriation, but it really comes down to the same thing. When you take away someone's freedom to do some thing, regardless of what that thing is, you take away their ability to adapt, and to innovate. People who cannot adapt, die. They stagnate. They cannot change, they cannot INVENT, they cannot be FREE.

Anyways, that's my thought for the day. And, this too: If there's four inches of snow on the ground, it doesn't mean the school system should SHUT DOWN for an extra two hours while people who should know how to drive in snow by now, can mosey on in to work. Can you tell I'm frustrated? Seriously. *sigh*


  1. We did not get hardly any snow at all this winter. I hope that is not an indication of another drought this year. I always wondered though why the first snow of the year it is like people forget how to drive on it. It is always that first snow everyone is driving like they never saw snow before in their life, kind of long as one isn't trying to get to work!

  2. Funny how that works. Unfortunately, this isn't the first snow. I tend to cut them a little bit of slack. Alas, none is to be given, here. *haha* You know, now that I think about it, we have the same "first snow" issue back home in Alaska. That first good snow day, we've got accidents left and right, especially on the Glenn Highway. It's always amazed me, but then, I'm one of those nuts that really honestly Swear-To-XXX LOVES to drive in the snow. LOVE IT. Can't live WITHOUT it!

    Ah well. What can ya do. *shrug*

  3. We just got more snow! On the 28th of March. LOL! Hope all is well with you.
