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

Off to See the Wizard

The trip will be a bit different this year. Instead of driving the Mustang for 15 hours each way, I'll be traveling up with first timer Danno of the blog SandCastle Scrolls.

In his Cessna 310.

Too cool.

It has just a bit more horsepower than the 'Stang, but it'll do the better part of 200mph, and will take us from Chandler, AZ to Carson City, NV in about 3½ hours, where we'll pick up a rental and drive the remaining thirty minutes to Reno.

Unfortunately, the Cessna doesn't have the cargo capacity of the Mustang, so I had to leave a few things behind this year I'd planned on taking. I'll be bringing my Garand, my M1 Carbine, and three handguns, but I'm leaving a (borrowed) semi-auto Thompson, my 1917 Enfield, and my "Power Tool" - the T/C Encore chambered in .260 Remington.

Anyway, we hope to be off the ground and en route by 10:30 AM, which should put us on the ground in time to meet up with the group at Cabela's.

Hope you're coming this year. Should be a good one!

Oh, and blogging will be light for the next couple of days.
