Seasonal Cautionary Note


I've been to a few office Christmas parties. Some of them end up not all that far off from the one cited above. If you are off to the seasonal gathering tonight remember...that you may not remember in the morning. But others certainly will.


However you decide to spend your holiday gatherings, I send you wishes of joy and merriment.


Look at her eyes. She clearly needs another couple of drinks. 

Some additional guidance:

If there is a possibility of several things going wrong, the one that will cause the most damage is the one that will go wrong.

If nothing can go wrong, something will.

Nature always sides with the hidden flaw.

Culture

American culture is changing and apparently the progressives are winning because (LINK) the Census Bureau reported in a study released this week that 65 percent of American children lived in households taking aid from one or more federal program as of the fall of 2011.  
"Almost two-thirds (65 percent) of children," said the Census Bureau, "lived in households that participated in at least one or more of the following government aid programs: Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF), the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), the Special Supplemental Nutrition Program for Women, Infants, and Children (WIC), Medicaid, and the National School Lunch Program."  

It's a battle against self reliance and it's a battle for the culture of the nation. The safety net - for the very poorest Americans now extends upward to 65% of children. Look around you, at your neighborhood, and ask yourself if well over half of the children are needy. These young people are being trained to be dependent on government.
