Surly Curmudgeon

   The human race divides politically into those who want people to be controlled and those who have no such desire. The former are idealists acting from highest motives for the greatest good of the greatest number. The latter are surly curmudgeons, suspicious and lacking in altruism. But they are more comfortable neighbors than the other sort.

    Quote of the Day

    "The killing of Bin Laden is no tragedy but the speed with which Democrats and Republicans immediately put the event to the rankest partisan advantage is simply and profoundly appalling."
    -- Nick Gillespie, "Bin Laden Killing Erases Democrats' Wimp Factor" or, More Reasons Why Americans Hate Politics, Politicians, & The Media

    Thought for the Day

    Even though it happens with alarming frequency, I am always taken aback when I encounter someone who is proud of their own ignorance.

    Thought for the Day

    Osama bin Laden's death means we're done, right? We can defund the TSA, do away with Homeland Security, roll back the Patriot Act, and so on. I think I'll hold my breath while Congress gets right on that.
