Liberty is an inherently offensive lifestyle. Living in a free society guarantees that each one of us will see our most cherished principles and beliefs questioned and in some cases mocked. That psychic discomfort is the price we pay for basic civic peace. It's worth it. It's a pragmatic principle. Defend everyone else's rights, because if you don't there is no one to defend yours. -- MaxedOutMama

I don't just want gun rights... I want individual liberty, a culture of self-reliance....I want the whole bloody thing. -- Kim du Toit

The most glaring example of the cognitive dissonance on the left is the concept that human beings are inherently good, yet at the same time cannot be trusted with any kind of weapon, unless the magic fairy dust of government authority gets sprinkled upon them.-- Moshe Ben-David

The cult of the left believes that it is engaged in a great apocalyptic battle with corporations and industrialists for the ownership of the unthinking masses. Its acolytes see themselves as the individuals who have been "liberated" to think for themselves. They make choices. You however are just a member of the unthinking masses. You are not really a person, but only respond to the agendas of your corporate overlords. If you eat too much, it's because corporations make you eat. If you kill, it's because corporations encourage you to buy guns. You are not an individual. You are a social problem. -- Sultan Knish

All politics in this country now is just dress rehearsal for civil war. -- Billy Beck

Another Friday Five

1. What vehicle do you drive?

A 1999 Ford Ranger supercab step-side 4x4

2. How long have you had it?

Since March of 1999 (I ordered it just the way I wanted it.)

3. What is the coolest feature on your vehicle?

The 4WD, of course. And I use it, too, but the half-doors allowing access to the area behind the seats are a close second.

4. What is the most annoying thing about your vehicle?

Lack of power. It has the 4.0L V-6, but I traded in an '88 5.0L Mustang on it, and I miss the POWER!!

5. If money were no object, what vehicle would you be driving right now?

Probably this:

The Porsche (that's pronounced "por-sha", not "porsh") 911 Carrera 4S. It's been described as "an appliance for going fast." Three-hundred twenty horsepower, all-wheel drive, 0-60 in 5.1 seconds, and reliable as an anvil. Stickers at $81,800. And it gets about the same mileage as my pickup.

I've always loved the 911.
