This was so good, I thought I should re-post it here. Also, it’s a little easier to track and remember things posted to my blog than, say Facebook.
“So … you were never a child? From birth, you were hunting and gathering your own food? You never had a mother to “hand” you milk?

I think you had a roof over your head that was paid for by other people, I think you went to schools that were built and staffed and paid for by other people, I think you felt safe because the streets were patrolled by other people, I think you drove to your three jobs on roads paved by other people, in a car built by other people and burning oil that was drilled by other people in a nation whose borders were defended by other people.”
