"You cannot legislate the poor into freedom by legislating the wealthy out of freedom. What one person receives without working for, another person must work for without receiving. The government cannot give to anybody anything that the government does not first take from somebody else. When half of the people get the idea that they do not have to work because the other half is going to take care of them, and when the other half gets the idea that it does no good to work because somebody else is going to get what they work for, that my dear friend, is about the end of any nation.

You cannot multiply wealth by dividing it."
Dr. Adrian Rogers 1931-2005

Not a post

This is not a post but a reminder to my children.
Please do not send me photos like this.
Please do not share stories about things like the ugh in this photo with me.
Please do not think that my fear will incapacitate me.
It won't.
I will be wigged out.
I will deal with a racing heart.
And if it is a rattlesnake:
I will do what is needed.
But~
I will not enjoy it.
I will be forever skittish when walking about my farm.
I will look before I collect squash off my plants.
And I will watch my step coming off the porches.
And I will continue to have the scary snake dreams while awake.
Yep~
This is me.
Your mom the co-contributor to your genetic makeup.
The one that protected you from your fears and worries and dreads,
even if they were purple aliens...and 
So~
I ask you as you are all nearly adults, 
that the time is now to protect me from my 
ugh, 
and refrain from sharing about them,
or sending me emails about them,
or leaving the skin they shed upon my porch.

Signed 
NOT the Snake Whisperer
