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

This Sounds Promising

Bill Whittle has posted again. I don't check on him daily any more, just once every couple of weeks. His latest post is dated June 3, so I'm not that far behind.

He says his latest hiatus has been due to the writing of a screenplay, but that in the mean time he has also written some essays (in his head) soon to be posted. With respect to the screenplay, I hope he sells it, retains creative control, and makes a freaking fortune off of it.

With respect to his essays, I'm most eagerly awaiting those:
THE REPUBLIC OF EMOTION -- How schools and modern teaching methods prepare us to be a society of self-centered crybabies without a clue as to how to think critically and act like adults.
LIFEBOAT -- immigration and why the Melting Pot whips the Mosaic hands down and twice on Sunday.
THE END OF THE WORLD AS WE KNOW IT -- The long-promised Global Warming essay, less about the science and more about the aneurism of politics and control that gives a very big lever to some very bad people.
THE WEIGHT OF OUR SKINS -- A look at race, now that the Great Uniter has healed my soul.
THE PLAGUE -- Civilizations rise and fall, and the pattern is always the same. Why? I think I may have an idea. And there may be a way around it.
"The Republic of Emotion" piece sounds like a bookend for The George Orwell Daycare Center. I very much look forward to seeing what he has to say on the subject. Same too for "The Plague." That topic concerns me greatly. Hell, I want to read 'em all.

Welcome back, Bill. We've missed ya!
