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

Irony, Indeed!

The post below, I Love My People has been linked at Un-DemocraticUnderground

(Link left cold, on purpose.)

One "Iverglas," hit the site some time after, I believe, I was ceremoniously kicked off after my own six month stint there - September 3 of 2002 by none other than Skinner, the site administrator. "Iverglas" appears to hate all firearms and anyone who does not hate all firearms, and posts this:
I see no reason for thinking that this post is anything other than the astroturf effort undertaken by the online "gun rights" community to take over discussion at that site:

The original post is dated January 6, 2008, so it took a while for our grassroots to find it, but just damn!

I complained awhile ago about some of our more vocal elements sometimes being a detriment to our cause, but the comments to this post are outstanding, even given the inevitable minor errors. The entire tone is calm, logical, factual, and fierce.

Everybody who commented? Take a bow. You deserve it.

Everybody who linked? You are the difference between Joyce-funded astroturf, and the grassroots from the divots our opponents keep picking out of their teeth.
Ah, irony.
Indeed. Obviously, "Iverglas" has A) no understanding of the word "grassroots," and B) no understanding of the word "irony."

Because they just whacked him/her in the mouth.

Heh. How's that divot taste, Iverglas?
