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

Happy New Year, Everyone

And in honor of this occasion, I've updated my blogroll. Originally I intended to keep it short, trying just to list those blogs I read regularly, but so many people put me on their blogrolls I felt ungrateful not to reciprocate. So, I've divided it up into those blogs I read and recommend, and those people who I just can't read regularly or I'd NEVER get anything done. (Please note, there's no preference in the order to anything, it's just the way I pulled each link off of Technorati, more or less. If you have me blogrolled and don't see a link to your site, drop me an email. I don't think Technorati gets everyone.)

Speaking of getting things done, this place is probably going to be quiet for a bit. I have three ongoing projects at work, two of which will have me out of town for significant periods this month. I'm at the "produce or die" point, so I must stop blogging and surfing and produce. I'm decompressing this last three-day weekend (when I really ought to be sitting at my desk doing work) but come Monday, it's a**holes and elbows.
