It took a jog East of us about a 100 miles South. I wish I didn't have to board up my windows BUT you never know. I made the right decision. I still haven't removed the boards and won't until these new threats go away. Right now, Tropical depression Maria is headed right towards us. Screw it. It was enough work putting up those boards. I'm getting my money's worth. My neighbor has the same idea so at least I'm not the turd in the punch bowl.
“If the natural tendencies of mankind are so bad that it is not safe to permit people to be free, how is it that the tendencies of these organizers are always good? Do not the legislators and their appointed agents also belong to the human race? Or do they believe that they themselves are made of a finer clay than the rest of mankind?”
