"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

Did A Donkey Just Fly By?

What in the heck just happened?

My lovely wife has done something that shocks even me.  I'm talking about someone who puts extreme effort into the concept of not saying anything if it's not uplifting and positive.

It takes an awful lot to get her stirred up over anything.

Now, I will admit that she has a great restraining influence on me, because had I commented on Katie Couric, it would have been along the lines of snatching that little elitist snob out of her New York apartment and dropping her in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia and then interviewing her a month later if she had survived the time there.

"So, Katie, how are the bruises healing?"
"How many beatings did you endure until you found a burqua?"
"How many times were you raped as an unescorted female,  until you could find some benevolent Muslim family to claim you as one of theirs?"  "Oh, you mean it got worse?"
"Gee, Katie, you don't seem very talkative about your wonderful experience among the "peace loving" Muslims."

I will make myself stop now.
