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

Bloggus Interruptus.

And it's getting interesting, too! Well, Alex has come back with not one, not two, but THREE replies to my philippic, and I'm going to have to peruse them in detail before I reply. Unfortunately, my wife was in a car accident this afternoon. She's OK. Bruised, sore, pissed off, but OK. The car is a total loss, however.

This has not been a wonderful seven days.

Anyway, just to let y'all know, I'll be getting back to Alex probably late Friday. I'm looking forward to it.

UPDATE: I've had a chance to read Alex's response(s). You cannot imagine how pleased I am. This is going to have to wait until Saturday. It needs my full and complete attention. I'll also try to post pics of my wife's (ex-)Altima. Let's just say that, in a conflict with a 1994 Volvo, it held its own. And I'm quite impressed with the performance of the safety features in both vehicles. It was just about a head-on at a combined speed of probably 60mph, and everybody walked away.

She's just walking slowly and carefully today, making a point not to move her head too much.

Or her arms.

Anybody know anything about the 2006 Mitsubishi Eclipse?
