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

But of COURSE!

In the long tradition of butchering good books, and the only slightly more recent tradition of making movies "politically correct," and the split-second more recent tradition of pushing a political agenda, Hollywood brings us "Runaway Jury" - the big-screen version of John Grisham's bestselling courtroom thriller.

Of course, Grisham's book was about a lawsuit against a tobacco company, and that was before the big settlements rolled in, so in the footsteps of Paramount's production of Tom Clancy's The Sum of All Fears where they replaced Arab Muslim terrorists with neo-nazis, Fox replaces the tobacco company with an assault weapon manufacturer, which (being, of course a billion-dollar business) can afford to hire high-tech thugs to fix the jury (because Jebus knows that's the only way these evil purveyors of death could escape JUSTICE!)

This, of course, has nothing to do with the upcoming sunset of the Assault Weapons Ban.

I've got this bridge for sale. In Brooklyn? Drop me a line if you're interested.
