Drop Off In Posts. (Or Quality Thereof.)

Some people may have noticed that the quality of our posts has dropped the last week. It’s not that we aren’t posting good, informative things. but rather we aren’t writing as much and researching as much. There’s a reason for that: we tired.

With 3 more months left until the general election, we are already tired of it all. We are tired of people bickering. We are tired of campaigns stealing or repositioning signs. We are tired of candidates who are like ventriloquist dummies with someone else’s hand up their back moving their lips. We are tired of candidates being “nice” on substantive issues and griping about things that the populace doesn’t care about. We are tired of people looking back decades to see if someone made a statement that can be used against them, even though they have said the statement was wrong when the said it. It’s almost as if people are penalized for thinking, for changing, for evolving. We’re tired of governments rigging boards. We’re tired of the people being blamed when elected officials and public employees can’t act in an ethical and legal manner.

Just plain ol’ tired.

We’ll be back to our normal obnoxious selves in a few days, but for now, we are plugging our batteries into the Florida sun, surf, and our families. (After all, school starts today and we need a break from summer break.)

Here’s an interesting point of view from Prager University followed by a quote from Walter Williams that should make us all pause and think.

The rich are getting richer, and the poor are… also getting richer. What’s driving this wealth creation process? In this video, Daniel Hannan explains why it is capitalism — and capitalism alone — that has led to the unprecedented enrichment that is the central fact of Western life.

And the Williams quote:

“But let me offer you my definition of social justice: I keep what I earn and you keep what you earn. Do you disagree? Well then tell me how much of what I earn belongs to you – and why?”

― Walter E. Williams, All It Takes Is Guts

A second one from Willians because it is Friday:

“How does something immoral, when done privately, become moral when it is done collectively? Furthermore, does legality establish morality? Slavery was legal; apartheid is legal; Stalinist, Nazi, and Maoist purges were legal. Clearly, the fact of legality does not justify these crimes. Legality, alone, cannot be the talisman of moral people.”

― Walter E. Williams, All It Takes Is Guts

Have a great weekend.
