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

Here I Am, Still Posting via Mordor!.

At least according to Donald Sensing.
Blogger has become the Mordor of the blogosphere
Yes, Blogger has been unstable as of late, and yes, it's irritating as hell, but it's orders of magnitude better than it was in May, 2003 when I started using it. And it's still free. And I have yet to see that big, flaming eye.

My lack of posting this week hasn't been due to Blogger's stability problems, but because I've been busy and both my wife and I have been ill. She's got whatever creeping crud is going around and has been trying to hack up a lung for about the last nine days - usually between 2 and 4AM. (A five-day course of Zithromax hasn't produced all that much improvement, IMHO.)

I've got my annual Springtime allergies.

Oh, joy.

So, for those of you who have been visiting repeatedly looking for new site content on the hot topics in gun control, like the DEA agent who said "I'm the only one in this room professional enough, that I know of, to handle this Glock .40" - just before shooting himself with it unintentionally, or the whacked-out asshole who shot up a church service or the whacked-out nutjob that shot up an Atlanta courthouse:

Did I have something to say about these? Yes, I did. Did I get it said? No, I didn't.

But hey, this service is free to you, so sometimes you get what you pay for.

In the mean time, I've been trading emails with a couple of people, and I'm working on another one of those thesis-length tracts sure to draw scathing comments about the size rather than the content, so bear with me.

Oh, and I'm still doing a lot of reading. I've started Guns, Germs and Steel.

Thanks for visiting.
