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

Sorry about the light posting

Yesterday we celebrated my daughter's 24th birthday by having a picnic in the park in the afternoon, but I spent the majority of the morning working on "The Blog that Ate Poughkeepsie".

I got home about 9:00 PM and was up until 12:30AM last night finshing it. Then I had to get up at 5:30 this morning so I could run my IHMSA pistol match. (Every 4th Sunday of the month at Tucson Rifle Club.) I got back home about 2:00 PM and took a nap. Right now, my wife, daughter, and grandkids are over at my in-laws. The silence is nice. I've been catching up on my reading.

Steven Den Beste has a post up concerning England joining the EU that I find worrying. Hell, I find the EU worrying, because as far as I'm concerned there are no checks and balances to restrain the power of the EU government with relation to the member countries, nor the individual citizens of those countries. A "United States of Europe" it's not.

Rachel's grandfather died. Drop her an e-mail with your condolences, if you would.

Michelle's prepubescent husband had another birthday. What is he now? 16? :^)

Emperor Misha is on a roll with his continuing phillipics concerning the Islamofascists™

The Volokh Conspiracy has moved. Change your bookmarks.

Instapundit has links to two articles concerning Germany - one on the political ramifications of its opposition to the war in Iraq, and one on Germany's collapsing economy. And, Glenn, I'm no econoblogger either - but it worries me too.

Kim du Toit has contributed again to the American economy by finding a reasonably priced M1 Carbine. And lots of ammo for it. (Why couldn't I have married Connie? Ah, well, I don't think it's possible to have done better in the wife department than I did. I'll just have to envy Kim's gun collection.)

Clayton Cramer hasn't posted since Friday, but what he lacks in quantity he makes up in quality.

Ravenwood has some good stuff up. Scroll down to "Government Schools at Work." Then weep for our lost children.

Acidman is on hiatus. He's gone to illegally fish for trout. (At least he's not using dynamite.)

Comments are still open over at Bill Whittle's Eject! Eject! Eject! for his most recent post Magic. He has over 300 now on just that one post. I will not envy, I will not envy, I will not envy.....

Frank at IMAO is offering the really cool "Nuke the Moon" T-shirt.

And finally, Courtney has a truly evil plan to stuff Acidman's e-mail while he is gone fishin' with - and I quote - "every annoying e-card, pics of cuddly kittens, and e-hugs we can find. Want to join in?"

BUWHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!! Um, no. No I do not. Really. No, I'm not kidding.....

I'm off work tomorrow, but I'll have honeydo's to get done. Hopefully I'll get some blogging in. And I can't WAIT to see what Jack will have to say in response to my last two posts to The Commentary. Hopefully I didn't blow one of his frontal lobes.
