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

Agreed (by Alex)

Sounds good Kevin. For the record my first post was 100% “snark-free” (go back and check for yourself), and after our first exchange, I took the gloves off as I figured you had done the same. But, despite the common perception here, no- I don’t have to be a wiseass to write (although I did love the reactions it generated).

So, for all future posts, I will respond in kind. Forthright argument will be met with forthright argument, snark with snark. Your site- you drive.

I’ll let you respond to the comments when you get the opportunity. I had more to write, but it’s only fair to let you respond first. My time is growing short here as things begin to pick up for me at work next week, and will likely be hell for at least the month of September. But I should be able to carve some time out at least in the next few days to post a few more replies.
