"When misguided public opinion honors what is despicable and despises what is honorable, punishes virtue and rewards vice, encourages what is harmful and discourages what is useful, applauds falsehood and smothers truth under indifference or insult, a nation turns its back on progress and can be restored only by the terrible lessons of catastrophe." … Frederic Bastiat

Evil talks about tolerance only when it’s weak. When it gains the upper hand, its vanity always requires the destruction of the good and the innocent, because the example of good and innocent lives is an ongoing witness against it. So it always has been. So it always will be. And America has no special immunity to becoming an enemy of its own founding beliefs about human freedom, human dignity, the limited power of the state, and the sovereignty of God. – Archbishop Chaput

Don't mess with my Chocolate

Look, I can handle price rising for all kinds of food. I understand that the Fed has created a perfect storm in the commodity markets with its shortsightedly destructive QE policies. And while I resent the fact that they are intent on destroying the US Dollar and with it, the way of life for my kids and their grandkids, nothing riles me more than to see what they have done to my chocolate. When inflation hits this commodity, now you are getting personal. After all, a man's chocolate is sacred - I might add here that I suspect that there are a lot more women who would second this.

Just make sure that if you start hoarding chocolate, that you don't stash it in the attic!
