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 - Parental Government Edition

Parenting is an interesting metaphor for taking care of a country. The Democrats remind me of a family with two kids: one whom they think is "normal" and the other whom they think is "special" – delicate, sensitive, sickly, utterly dependent on them for everything. As parents, they completely ignore the "normal" kid and devote all their love, attention, and money to the "special" one. The life of the whole family revolves around him.

The fact is, half the reason he's so sickly is that he's been treated this way all his life.

When the Democrats are in charge, I feel like the "normal" brother.

-- "Bugs" in a comment at The GOP Goes Alinsky on Obama by J. Christian Adams at PJ Media
Interesting observation.
