"A government that is big enough to give you all you want is big enough to take it all away." -- Barry Goldwater
Well, that says it all.
Had a great birthday recently. We stayed home, rather than the traditional going out to eat, we cracked open the video cases and watched videos from my kid's childhood. It was awesome and I recommend it to everyone who has kids, or just old videos. Its simply wonderful to go back and recollect those moments. It compresses your timeline, it makes the past feel like the present, and it helps gather your thoughts in how the 11 year old in front of you was such a little muffin not so long ago.
