Woo Hoo!!!

Finally! The House stood up for liberty and struck a blow to the Patriot Act! They voted yesterday to curtail the Feds ability to seize library and bookstore records. YES!

This is a major victory for proponents of personal liberty! I am absolutely overjoyed that conservative republicans, worried about government intrusion defected to vote bi-partisan on this issue.

It is about time we gain some of our rights and freedoms back from a government willing to sacrifice liberty for safety! If you want to read more, check out this article. It's from the Post, and I know that Bush says he will veto anything that comes through the legislature that weakens the Patriot Act, but this is a wonderful thing! Joy to all those that believe in personal freedom and liberty!


I read this morning a meditation that argued ambition is one of man's greatest temptations. I know so many addicted to ambition, and I pray that I may not become such a man. I do not want to sacrifice my morality and my values for some future which will leave me hollow, empty, and evil. We need to live deliberately, so that we recognize in our lives that what we have is more than enough. True fulfillment comes from being content with what we have, not from the endless quest to obtain that which we lack!
