RE: Just Needed To Let This Out...
Yeah, I second that. The road has two huge mega-highways, 35-W coming down from Ft. Worth and the other, 35-E coming down from Dallas, choked into two lanes just outside of Waco. What a freaking circus. If any little bit of road opens up, local bozos in pickups slam on the gas, just so they can then slam on the brakes when the traffic brickwalls again. Meanwhile, about 10 million people are trying to just get from DFW to Austin/San Antone. Throw in a couple hundred thousand semis coming up or down from Mexico, and you got madness.
Recall that earlier generations faced down fascism and communism not just with missiles and tanks, but with sturdy alliances and enduring convictions. They understood that our power alone cannot protect us, nor does it entitle us to do as we please. Instead, they knew that our power grows through its prudent use; our security emanates from the justness of our cause, the force of our example, the tempering qualities of humility and restraint.
