Our camping spot wasn't a National park.  It was on federal land, so the
closed it during the "shutdown."  They never refunded our money.  They tried
everything they could to be as annoying as possible, such as by barricading
open-air monuments, placing traffic cones along the freeway to make it
difficult to photograph Mt. Rushmore from the road outside the park, among
other crimes against Americans.  Shame.

I couldn't help but notice a comment by Health and Human Services' Kathleen
Sebelius, "The majority of people calling for me to resign I would say are
people who I don't work for, and who do not want this program to work in the

Asians, or Africans, or Australians calling for Sebelius to resign?
Antarcticans perhaps?  She was talking about Americans.  We have current
government officials who think they do not work for the American people.  Or
that if they are Tea Partiers, they are not Americans?  See where I am going

The cartoon version of Road to Serfdom is fast, but it does miss something
important: that these steps are not necessarily serial, and not necessarily
well defined.  They can peak out of order.  Try to see the message, and why
it is we need to get this program back up to the state level asap.
