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

I Want to Thank My 16 Regular Readers...

...and the rest of you who voted for me in the Para-USA Win a Weekend at Blackwater competition. I'm going! So is Tam, Dave Hardy, SayUncle, Robb, Ahab, JR, and Joe Huffman! I don't know who the other two are yet, but congratulations to them as well!

Three days, 1,000 to 1,500 rounds of someone else's ammo, and training with Todd Jarrett? What more could you want?

Only downside? My fat ass will be on television, unless they use some damned creative editing. Michael Bane is going to film the weekend for the Outdoor Channel. He also reports (so it's official now) that Para-USA is relocating from Toronto, Ontario to Charlotte, N.C. in October.

Thanks, y'all. You're the greatest!

UPDATE, 7/8: The last two gunbloggers chosen by poll are Armed Citizen and Mad Duck

And even better news, Bitter Bitch and Sebastian will be going as well, according to Michael Bane. (He needs someone to film while the rest of us are worshipping learning from Todd Jarrett.)
