Spring has sprung!

While it's still too cool in Wisconsin to get excited about the weather, the morning sunlight streaming across my lawn is enough.  A week of travel on a sour stomach and poor weather in north Texas, makes me appreciate the moment all the more.

I recently discovered a quote by John Stossel that captured my attention.  I don't know much about Stossel, other than the fact he's a Libertarian.  I've seen a few of his topical reports on television and that's about it, but his pithy take on taxation made me smile...

"Politicians, bureaucrats and the people they 'rescue' get money through force — taxation.  Don't think taxation is force? Try not paying, and see what happens."
