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

UPDATE

OK, I'm backlogged. I have another essay on Rights that I owe people from a couple of weeks ago. I've started it, but it looks like another ├╝berpost, and those take a bit. Markadelphia has returned, once again wrapped in his blanket of "I'm not, you are!" I owe HIM a response to something from quite a while back, but that's not gonna happen until after the Rights piece.

I'm buried at work, and I'm supposed to go on vacation starting Labor Day weekend, but it now looks like I'll be tied up for a day or two on an emergency project before leaving for Gun Blogger Rendezvous VII on Thursday of next week - and if you think I'll be doing any non-GBR related posting over THAT weekend, you've got another think coming. Over Labor Day and the days leading up to leaving I WAS going to finish painting the exterior of my house. I still hope to get to that. Blogging will, of course, suffer.

Somewhere in there I need to load some more ammo for the trip, get all my stuff put together and in the same place.

TL;DR version: Don't expect much out of me for a week or three.
