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

Life Intrudes

I'm sort of addicted to this blogging thing, as you might note from the (previous) volume of posting I've done. The Smallest Minority is now about three weeks away from its first anniversary, too, with very few pauses during that period. However, I'm ridiculously busy, my father-in-law has just had major surgery for cancer of the lower intestine, and I've been neglecting my other hobbies like shooting, reloading, and home maintenance.

Oh, and sleep.

I didn't post anything of note this weekend, just a link to Mike Spenis's humorous Nader campaign poster. Instead, I did a few honeydews, visited my father-in-law in the hospital, I shot in my first JC Garand match (shot my 1917 Enfield and scored 414 - 1X with milsurp ammo, firmly in the middle of the pack,) and my wife and I went to see The Alamo. (Good flick. Highly recommended. Billy Bob Thornton as Davy Crockett is excellent.)

I was going to enter into another discussion at another new blog, Strange and Stranger, but my opponent has failed to take the field. That's probably for the better, as I don't have time to give this blog the attention it deserves at this time. Tim Lambert has responded to my last salvo, and I haven't had time to do much other than some basic research for my next entry in that exchange. Hopefully I'll get that posted in the next two or three days.

Anyway, what I'm trying to say here is that I'm only going to be able to crank out one or maybe two posts a day for a while. Sorry. Life intrudes.
