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.

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

Good Thing The MSM has All Those Layers of Review

Too Much Cola Can Lead to Paralysis?

Forget about tooth decay and obesity, it looks like there might be an even more serious reason to cut back on your cola consumption.

A report written by Dr. Moses Elisaf scheduled to be published in the June issue of the International Journal of Clinical Practice, says that drinking excessive amounts of cola (diet or regular) can cause potassium levels in the blood to plummet, which could lead to muscle problems, weakness, an irregular heartbeat, and in some cases, even paralysis.

“We are consuming more soft drinks than ever before and a number of health issues have already been identified including tooth problems, bone demineralisation and the development of metabolic syndrome and diabetes” says Doctor Elisaf from the Department of Internal Medicine at the University of Ioannina, Greece.

According to the research review, worldwide annual consumption of soft drinks reached 552 billion liters, the equivalent of 83 liters per person, per year in 2007. That figure is expected to climb to 95 liters per day by 2012. The average American drinks about 600 cans of soda every year.
Ninety-five liters a day. That's a touch over 25 gallons.

Yes, I know it's a typo, but still . . .
