Reason TV’s latest video

starts off with a gut-busting claim from one of my favorite actors, Kevin Spacey, on how Abraham Lincoln relied on the arts to “replenish his soul,” which Nick Gillespie points out somehow glosses over the fact that Lincoln was assassinated by an actor while attending a theater performance. Whether Lincoln craved the arts is one question, but it has little to do with the question of whether taxpayers should fund the arts through public financing. After the initial spit-take opening, Reason TV and Nick walk through three common sense reasons why taxpayers should stay out of the art business

Congratulations, indeed.

I haven't checked lately, but GCR may be gaining on me! :)

I see my average is one post per day over the course of seven years. Not too much. Maybe my visibility is higher now as fewer people post.

An observation:

The guys and I were playing poker Saturday night. A chance to drink beer, scotch, lie and bluff. One of our regulars, Sam, was sipping some pretty good hootch out of a "World best grandpa" mug. Don, our resident philospher and youngest husband said something like, "You know, I see 'world's greatest granda' and 'world's greatest dad' coffee mug but I've never see 'world's greatest husband' coffee mug.

Sam, sucking on an e-cig (it's just not the same for a profound gesture as a stogie or a real cigarette) said "If they had one, they'd be afraid the rest of us would shoot them".

"What?" said Don,

"It's bad enough living up to wives expectations as it is now without them being able to point at the neighbohood G**D**n roles models!!!!"

Apparently, instinctually, most men realize that hanging that kind of marker on a guy would just breed resentment and anger, so why take a chance?

So, guys, if you get "world's greatest husband" coffee mug from the wife, you might want to move it to the back of the closet, or "accidentially" drop it on the tile floor....the rest of us are watching.... :lol:

A husband and wife are shopping in their local Wal-Mart. The husband picks up a case of Miller Lite and puts it in their cart.

'What do you think you're doing?' asks the wife.

'They're on sale, only $10 for 24 cans', he replies.

'Put them back, it's a waste of money', demands the wife. So he does and they carry on shopping.

A few aisles further on along, the woman picks up a $20 jar of face cream and puts it in the basket.

What do you think you're doing?' asks the husband...

"It's my face cream. It makes me look beautiful,' replies the wife.

Her husband retorts: 'So does 24 cans of Miller Lite and it's half the price....'

HUSBAND DOWN, AISLE 7!
