Wednesday is the day. While Georg continues to post here on a near daily (or multi-times a day) basis, I’ve been slacking off.
Tomorrow, after I get a good night’s sleep, I’ll put fingers to keyboard and finish one or two of the posts I’ve been thinking about. Of course I’ve got to grade papers and do some laundry, as well.
Things I’m thinking about lately:
- The National Debt and the immorality of what we’re doing to our kids (notice, I’ve added a running debt clock to the top left of our page).
- Gun control, and the threats of confiscation
- Sequestration (really? We’re supposed to think that having a little bit less of an increase than planned for—still above and beyond last years’ budget—is going to cause something akin to the zombie apocalypse?)
- Losing our rights
Oh, and on that note, here’s a video that was brought to my attention today:
I’m not really sure that I’d have the nerve to challenge the authorities that directly—especially not if my kids were in the car. In many instances, it seems like it would be easier to just say, “yes, I’m an American citizen” and show them my driver’s license. But I understand the frustration, and hope that I would stand my ground if justified.
