The cost of the nanny state

Gerald Ford said that "a government big enough to give you everything you want is big enough to take away everything you've got."

In his Littlestuff-minoosha blog, Charlie Earl expands on that topic. (Don't forget to turn on your sarcasm filter).

Charlie concludes:

At the rate that we are moving right now, you may have your perfectly safe world in a short time. I hope that you will be satisfied to live in your tiny little box and never have the anxiety that comes from having to make your own decisions. Remember, though, if you dare to peek out of the box, you will pay the consequences. Big Brother expects you to stay in the box because you have everything you need.

I, for one, prefer to think and live outside the box.
