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

Quote of the Day - Berlin Wall Edition

Twenty years ago I breathed a sigh of relief. I honestly thought that with the demise of the USSR and their lackey regimes in East Germany and elsewhere in Eastern Europe, we'd finally secured the world that would be safe and shining bright for my children.

Today I’m not sure at all. It was easier in 1974. There was a fence. One one side was us. On the other side were the enemy. Them. A line. Us. They wore different uniforms to make it easy.

Today, the enemy isn't on the other side of the line. The shining days I thought I'd secured for my children, those days are being torn away by a socialism administered by elites, as socialism always does. In East Germany, things were pretty darned pleasant if you were at the top, looking down at the people. For the people, though, it was grey, drab and hopeless.

That's the America that the Left has for us. Oh, you won't hear them actually SAY that, but that's because they're so wrapped up in the layers of sophistry and academic prose that they fail to read history, to see that such is the end of EVERY government that heads down the path our own Leftists are choosing.

I'm sitting here thinking how glad I was that the Warsaw Pact never crossed the line, and I'm doubting that the American Left has that much sense. -- Mostly Cajun, Reflections on a wall that isn't there
[sarcasm] But Dale, this time the RIGHT people will be in charge! [/sarcasm]
