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

Arizona Political Bloggers Make the Front Page.

Well, it's only the Arizona Daily Star, but still...
Bloggers becoming a potent force in politics

Call it moonlighting.

By day, Michael Bryan is an attorney. But nights and weekends, you'll usually find him hanging out at political events and public meetings.
He's a blogger, and since launching "Blog for Arizona" in 2003, Bryan has watched the practice go from being viewed as a "marginal, cranky kind of thing to do" to being just another way for people to get their news.
I've tangled with Mr. Bryan before. We've even traded emails. Given the quality of his thinking, I'm surprised that he's an attorney. I cannot help but wonder what his specialty is. He actually started as a Deaniac, and the name of the blog was originally Dean4Arizona. He's now an Obama supporter, so at least he's consistent!

RTWT, it's actually kinda interesting. It's not all about Mr. Bryan, but I was surprised this morning to see his name above the fold on the front page.
