I think we got to this point by being complacent, not through apathy. When things were going well, we just let thing do what they do.

Got me in a weak moment....seeing my son pay $850 for books while the pontificater in chief enjoys hawaii...just getting to me... - thanks for the kick in the butt.

Could be that seasonal thing...more daylight now... when it warms up - I'll get that fire in my belly again...

I have to say the longer it is that I pay attention, the less faith I have in the elected. It is ALL about the $$$$ for them....and this isn't a recent trend. This is decades of legislating for money interests. The era of the career politician needs to come to an end for anything to change.

Well, I can't let this thread fall to page two. Time for another worth-wild update from a great American, Ron Paul.

Notable Ron Paul Quote:


"Today you can get a book instantaneously with just a couple of clicks on your computer. You know so ah. This is ah; we live in the most miraculous of times. You know it was Victor Hugo who says you can stop an invasion of an army, but you cannot stop an invasion of ideas. You know when I first heard that; I was so excited about that because I am really sort of a chicken at heart. I donít like fighting and shooting and killing people, and if I thought I had to change anything by becoming violent, I didn't want any part of it. So when I decided that ideas are more powerful than armies, why not join the position of changing ideas and confront the people who have the military power because we have the greatest weapon in our hands."

Ė Dr. Ron Paul, Jan. 26, 2013
