Another one of my musings and this time Bill Kristol retweeted it and is now following ME!

I mean - what kind of world are we living in where Kristol follows me on Twitter?? It's crazy.
He has 460k+ followers and he's now one of my 152 (so, I guess, he's joined a MUCH more exclusive club!)

Anyway... enjoy...

Can we peasants still talk to you ? Or do we need to see one of "your people" first ?

If you've got public schools paid for by taxpayers, you're in a socialist nation. If you have public roads paid for by taxpayers, socialist nation. If you've got public defense (police, fire, military, coast guard) paid for by tax dollars, socialist nation. If you're in a nation that has nationalized or localized delivery of services that are not paid for by users alone, you're in a socialist nation- the only question is how socialist. As I see it, we have the military pay to protecting the shipping lanes for our fuel needs which makes up very socialist. In a capitalist nation, the people supplying the oil would pay for their own defense force.

@drdredl: You ain't worth nowt till you get a book deal and a lecture tour and an anchorship on Fox.
Reality is a hallucination caused by alcohol deprivation.

Only Satan can rebuke sin. The righteous don't know enough.

God is not dead. He was merely voted out of office.

You can do anything with anybody if you just save them the trouble of thinking.

You f***ing anti-Semite. :D (Hmmmm. I wonder how often those words have been types with a smiley after them.)

Goooooooo- DD. Get slightly famous. Remember us "back then" folks. Move up, move on.

--- On September 17, 1787, as Benjamin Franklin was leaving the deliberations of the Constitutional Convention, at Independence Hall, in Philadelphia, a woman called out to him, saying, “Well, Doctor, what have we got, a republic or a monarchy?”
“A republic,” Franklin said, “if you can keep it.”
