Before I get to the post on on socialism, I want to mention that I am celebrating a personal anniversary today, March 20th. It was four years ago today that I quit smoking. The reason I quit smoking is because I ended up in the emergency room in the and intensive care unit at the local hospital early in the morning of March 20th 2012. I had suffered a pulmonary edema and a heart attack. The fact that I’m still here, still kicking, and still crazy, as well as smoke free, surprises me more than it surprises anybody else that I know, including you guys! Happy anniversary to me!
