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

Just an update. I'm back in Wickenburg again, and it looks very much like I'll be moving from the apartment here to a house in Bagdad to be closer to the job site during commissioning. That'll happen tomorrow or Wednesday.

Good news: No more 75 minute commute to and from the site.

Bad news: No internet access.

More bad news: The drive up on Sunday increases from three to four hours.

Looks like I'll be disconnected from the web for about three or four days. (I should have a Verizon wireless card next week.)

I'm already hyperventilating.

UPDATE - 1/6: Checked out the house this afternoon. Short form: No. Longer form: Oh, HELL no!

After seeing the alternative, the extra two-hour commute isn't that damned bad. I believe we're going to decline the generous offer of on-site housing.

The real deal-breaker is the prison-style rollaway cots in each of the bedrooms.

Homey don't play dat.
