"Good intentions will always be pleaded for every assumption of authority ... the Constitution was made to guard against the dangers of good intentions. There are men in all ages who mean to govern well, but they mean to govern. They promise to be good masters, but they mean to be masters." - Noah Webster

"There is no worse tyranny than forcing a man to pay for what he does not want just because you think it would be good for him."
-- Robert A. Heinlein

Moxie Mothers Chicks

Last night we picked out a movie on Netflix to livestream to the computer and lay on the floor to give the chicks some attention again.  As they get bigger, this is going to happen less and less, so we enjoy it while we can.

Moxie acts just like a nervous mother guarding her pups.  No matter how many times they peck her nose with those sharp little beaks, she never snaps or behaves badly.  She continues to want to lick at them and if they seem to be getting too spread out, she wants to herd them back into a tight huddle.

Here for your watching pleasure is a little sample of the action.
