[ a fully caused & embodied blog ] [ Good Sense Without God ]
It is in the prosecution of some single object, and in striving to reach its accomplishment by the combined application of his moral and physical energies, that the true happiness of man, in his full vigour and development, consists. Possession, it is true, crowns exertion with repose; but it is only in the illusions of fancy that it has power to charm our eyes. If we consider the position of man in the universe,—if we remember the constant tendency of his energies towards some definite activity, and recognize the influence of surrounding nature, which is ever provoking him to exertion, we shall be ready to acknowledge that repose and possession do not indeed exist but in imagination. - Wilhelm von Humboldt, The Sphere and Duties of Government (The Limits of State Action) (1854 ed.)

Glenn continues his streak with another Obama posting

Again, for those of you unable to understand why Obama's position on the current FISA bill was the last straw and prompted me to decide not to vote for him must read Glenn. And no, you need to read it all.

And no talking-points or sound-bites to help you out. You can not complain about the level of discourse and then not read "long" blog posts.
