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

OK, WTF?!?.

Look, I know it's an election year and all the available choices suck. Yes, I know that the economy has finally descended from its twenty-eighth consecutive quarter of growth or whatever, and is now threatening to enter recession. I know that a lot of people bought houses they really couldn't afford, betting that the economy would continue up, up, and away! I know that oil is at all time high prices, and the dollar is reaching new lows against every currency up to and including the Som of Kyrgyzstan. I know that millions, nay tens of millions of Americans have no health insurance, or insufficient health insurance (something almost no one had prior to say, 1940). I know that Global Warming has resulted in the coldest winter in thirty years, and the Arctic ice has melted so much that it's almost back to normal. I know that things are so bad in Iraq that even the Democrats have stopped talking about it.

So for various and sundry reasons, lots of people apparently want to take their own lives.


What is with these nutjobs deciding to take perfect strangers along with them?

It just Does. Not. Compute.

I sent in my CCW application this morning. If they want to go, fine. I'm not going with them.
