Merry Christmas and Happy New Year, everyone!
Come to the Dark Side. We have cookies. The advantage of insinuations over hard arguments is that they bypass critical thought. No one can respond precisely to a charge that is utterly vague or to accusers who will envelope any reply in a poisonous fog of further insinuations. ~ David Warren, The Guardian There was a time when there was enough freedom that it hardly mattered which brand of crooks ran government. That has not been true for a long time and that captures an important point. The more powerful the government becomes, the more people are willing to do in order to seize the prize, and the more afraid they become when someone else has control. ~ Glenn Harlan Reynolds “The urge to save humanity is almost always only a false-face for the urge to rule it. Power is what all messiahs really seek: not the chance to serve.” ― H.L. Mencken

Merry Christmas to one and all!
A Christmas card with a difference.
Here's the famous American sharpshooter and trick-shot specialist Annie Oakley.
What's she got to do with Glasgow, you ask, well, quite a lot actually.
Annie visited Glasgow twice, touring with Buffalo Bill's Wild West Show.
On her first visit, in 1891, she had a special tartan outfit made, and, as the show was in town over Christmas, she had herself photographed wearing it, at the Watson & Wilson Studios, in Jamaica Street.
So chuffed was she with the picture, that she had it turned into her own Christmas card, sending copies to her thousands of fans around the world - so creating what is acknowledged to be the world's first photographic Christmas card.
And, if that isn't worth a 'yee-ha!' and a few gunshots into the air, I don't what is.....

Because States stopped requiring poor houses and farms, communities and counties stopped providing them, so we have an ever increasing homeless population with ever diminishing skills in a country with a need for skills and immigration looking like a solution.
What would Annie think?
What goes around, comes around.
