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

Just an Update.

Sorry I haven't been posting much lately. I've been busy, and just not all that inspired to write at the moment.

I am, however, waiting for Alex to join TSM and begin our debate. I emailed him the day before yesterday and received an affirmative reply:
I am trying to get one more project out the door.

I will post something as soon as I can.
So expect to see something on that subject soon.

I'm planning on writing a couple more pieces on LTC Dave Grossman's book, On Killing, as well; one on that 2% of the population that can apparently kill without much in the way of remorse, and another on whether or not we've been inadvertently conditioning our kids to be killers. Neither of those pieces has jelled, yet, and I don't want to force them.

I've also been spending my online time reading a lot of the milblogs. If you haven't, I recommend it. You're not going to hear about any of what these guys have to say in the regular media.

Anyway, I haven't dropped off the face of the Earth, and thank you to all the regular readers who check in each day and keep my hit counter rolling over.

And remember, I also do requests, though it might take me some time.

Keep checking in.
