“Morality is personal”

Posted in Liberty on January 30, 2010 by Darkman

Morality is personal. There is no such thing as collective conscience, collective kindness, collective gentleness, collective freedom. To talk of social justice, social responsibility, a new world order, may be easy and make us feel good, but it does not absolve each of us from personal responsibility.

Excellent quote and one I agree with and believe in. Go to The Devil’s Kitchen to see who said it and read the rest of a great post.

Changing the rules

StarTribune:

That means that any stimulus money used to cover payroll will be included in the jobs credited to the program, including pay raises for existing employees and pay for people who never were in jeopardy of losing their positions.

If you had a job and kept it, you count as “job saved by stimulus money.” Same goes even if your job was never in danger of being eliminated, or even if stimulus money was used to give you a raise.
