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

Oh, What the Hell.

Via Mostly Cajun, another blogmeme - your Senior Year of High School:

What year was it?
What was your schedule?
You expect me to remember that? I had (IIRC) parking-lot duty first period, Civics (or whatever they called it then) second period, AP English third period, somewhere in there I had Calculus and Physics, and that's all I'm really sure about.
What were your favorite bands?
Elton John, the Eagles, Eric Clapton (the three essential "E's" of rock-n-roll.)
What was your favorite outfit?
"Style" is not and never has been a strong point for me. Blue jeans, a pocket T-shirt, and a plaid flannel long-sleeved shirt if weather required it. And boots. Almost never tennis shoes. I was "grunge" before Seattle ever thought about it.
What was up with your hair?
What about it? I got it cut when it started bothering me. Still do.
Who were your best friends?
Charles (now Chuck) Mangum, Chuck Persinger, Joe Mueck. But Chuck Persinger went to a different high school, and Joe moved to Florida the year before.
Did you take the bus?
Nope. I had my own car - a 1969 Simca 1118. Not much, but it ran.
What did you do after school?
Worked in a movie theater.
Who did you have a crush on?
Martha Ann Wagner. That was a long-standing one, too. One of the reasons I got the job in the theater. Never panned out, though.
Did you fight with your parents?
No, my brother did all of that. My parents and I got along fine.
Who did you have a CELEBRITY crush on?
I'm sure I must have had one, but I couldn't tell you who, now. Probably Kate Jackson from the original Charlie's Angels.
Did you smoke cigarettes?
Nope. My parents did, and my brother did, but I never could understand why someone would want to do that.
Did you lug all of your books around in your backpack all day because you were too nervous to find your locker?
You know, I'm not sure if I started using a backpack in high school, or if it waited until I started college. Probably college. It wasn't a big high school.
Did you have a ‘clique’?
Hell no. I think I made a point of not fitting in anywhere.
Did you have Chili’s? Denny’s?
Not then.
Who did you want to be just like?
I can't name anybody in particular.
What did you want to be when you grew up?
Well off.
Where did you think you’d be at the age you are now?
About where I am now. May be a little more well off.
