    “Socialism, like the ancient ideas from which it springs, confuses the distinction between government and society. As a result of this, every time we object to a thing being done by government, the socialists conclude that we object to its being done at all. We disapprove of state education. Then the socialists say that we are opposed to any education. We object to a state religion. Then the socialists say that we want no religion at all. We object to a state-enforced equality. Then they say that we are against equality. And so on, and so on. It is as if the socialists were to accuse us of not wanting persons to eat because we do not want the state to raise grain.”

    Yeah, but it got a chuckle out of you

    (I have self-esteem issues, too, so I hear you. Pain in the ass and I have no idea how to get rid of it.)

    Since you mention critter crap, I'll add needing to clean the carpet in the LR from the dog who ate too much turkey and got the runs last night. Oh and I should mention that the turkey came from killing 4 of my flock. Grrrrr...

    somehow I manage to leave my intelligence and decorum at the door wherever I go. I doubt your journal will be an exception to that - not on the rug
