    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    I find that I enjoy Christmas more if I'm not in the stores. Too many people, too many smells, too much aggravation. My house is all decorated already too. Now I can sit and enjoy it in between work travel.

    Not to get too far off topic, we haven't started decorating, I'm trying to figure out what to do in the front yard, we had all kinds of lighted nets out front last year over shrubs but we replaced all the shrubs and have nowhere to put them. This weekend, we'll start pulling out the Christmas stuff and making decisions.

    I guess part of me says how could any proper Right Libertarian not know about it but then I guess even those that do not still can parrot the party line just the same as the Truth is dispensed from those on high who are tuned onto the Institute and the information which then flows from it.

    here then is my Christmas present to you

    enjoy.

    My last OT post too. We're getting a ton of snow here in NH today so my husband & kids put up all the outdoor stuff (spotlights, wreath) on Sunday knowing the forecast, and that got me in the spirit, so I spent yesterday and today finishing the inside. Good luck with the outdoor decorating - I know what it's like to change things up and then all of a sudden you're like "uh oh! Christmas decorations don't work now!"

    Not at the moment but the evening is still young and I have not imbibed yet. I was just trying to inform you about something you claimed to not be aware of.

    I can't tonight. My husband will be home soon. Plus I need to smoke a lot of weed before I stray.

    I'm not into the entire Austrian Economics thing, which is probably why I've never once posted about it. Pretty cool how that works. I'm also not interested in Nascar, which is probably why I never posted about that either.
