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

Quote of the Day - Taki's Mag Edition

Wherein the editors tell us how they really feel:
Trying to rein in Leviathan is somehow depicted as "obstructionist." One must never obstruct the bloody beast. One must continue tossing raw meat into its maw. Anyone who stands in the beast's way is full of "hate" and "anger." We know who the problem is here, right? It's those Tea Party redneck rural paint-huffing Bible-thumping cousin-humping bigots who aren't like we are and whose chief sin is that they don’t like people who are different than they are. We all know it's a scientific fact that those people are only against abortion because they prefer the taste of newborn babies.

The average naïve and uninformed American seems to believe that a politician's main role is to care about his or her feelings. As long as the words sound vaguely compassionate and the soundtrack is uplifting, they'll swallow whatever ball of honey-coated dung that politicians feed them. In truth, politicians care about us so much, they even indenture the unborn to lifetime financial servitude.

If you oppose taxing the lifeblood out of the people until their bodies are dried-up like beef jerky, well, you're obviously a racist. Not that there's any correlation. There doesn't need to be a correlation in a world where feelings trump facts.
