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

I Want a BUNCH of THESE!

Do you work at a place that has those "motivational posters" on the walls? You know, beautiful cibachrome shots of gorgeous scenery with an inspirational message at the bottom like this one on leadership?

The caption says something like "Until you spread your wings, you have no idea how far you can fly."

I find these things annoying.

Apparently someone else does too, and in an excellent example of free market acumen, he has started a business to address (and create!) that market. The business is and it produces DEmotivational posters, "Demotivators," most of which are absolutely hilarious. Here are a few of my favorites:

Also true for "Government Regulators"

So absolutely true, especially to those of us in highly technical fields.


I would like very much to sneak a bunch of these professionally framed posters into some of the major corporation offices I have been in and replace the annoying ones with these just to see how long it would take somebody in management to notice.

Anyway, you can see the entire catalog here, so go and peruse. But put a towel over your keyboard. There are some funnier than these.
