Senator Tom Butler, born April 9, 1944, in Huntsville, Alabama, is serving his fourth term in the Senate after serving from 1982-1994 in the House of Representatives. He received his degrees from the University of Alabama and Auburn University. Senator Butler and his wife, Karen, are the parents of two children: Robin and Jill. He is a Pharmacist/Health Underwriter, Baptist, Democrat, and is a member of the Optimist, the Alabama Pharmaceutical Association, and the North Alabama Health Underwriters Association. Senator Butler enjoys golf, hiking, white water rafting...

...and legislating against the sale of Mechanical Contrivances for Marital Pleasure. Since he has militated against toys for consenting adults, you may understand my turn of mind upon receiving a copy of the book above.

Alabama State Senator Butler's jihad against Things Not His Business has really ground my gears. The Libertarian in me longs for a Kwisatz Haderach to lead the people to freedom against such intrusive lawmaking. Don't think you're gaining a peek in your Aardvark's bedside table...I am in much the same lather over the war on drugs, yet I don't indulge. Besides, that wouldn't Be Your Business, either.

This all just gives me a really bad vibe.

But Aardvark! He's only trying to save you & yours from yourself. He read my comment about the cat's tail & the firecracker - He just took the wrong meaning from it.

From Vox Popoli:
Next you'll be keeping the ones back home in the kitchen, barefoot and pregnant. - The Aardvark

I was going to say that should they bring back the draft I was going to increase my efforts to join that particular group. However, I thought better of it after my last couple of days of foot-in-mouth syndrome. :o)

There, do you feel that I am playing fair again?

The Dread Dormomoo and I take comfort from your words, and from Sen. Butler's efforts.

I feel saved from my warped-ness.
Cat's tail & the firecracker? Didn't see it. Dish...DISH!
Increase your efforts...Haw!

I say it again...you should start a blog. Or even a bloglet. I'm no heavy hitter, but I've got stuff to say.

You do too.

Heck, if you want to guest over here when
you have summat to say, you are welcome!

I may have to take you up on that. I have been thinking about writing something about why Machiavelli's Prince is not for use in a Democratic Environment. He was writing to a Militry or Hereditary Prince. But I fear that I may not have time to find my book. :o)

Increase your efforts...Haw!

Seriously, except for the flirting at VP, I have been & continue to be quite passive about such. Really, if God wishes for me to be wed - He can bring it about, in His time. I am quite busy trying to work in the service He as given me to do today. :o)

Well, I can't find it. But it was something like this.

Speaking to knowing what is best for others: I said something along these lines. Do we not take some responsibility for telling others what moral decisions to make. EX:

Q: Why did you tie the firecracker to the cat's tail & light it?
A: You didn't tell me not to?

Utter, utter wisdom you utter.

I think the government should be replaced with nothing.

Well, nothing that you can see without a Geiger counter, that is.

And I have four Geiger counters, with dosimeters. I'm ready. Pass the iodine tabs!
