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

Quote of the Day

In its entirety, a rant of beauty by LabRat right here in my comments:
I just finished reading this whole thread after looking at it once when the number of comments was 3.

UJ and others are doing quite all right at the quote-fisk game. They have that covered.

So far as I can determine from having read Round XIV of Markadelphia versus everyone else including, apparently, Fox News and an imaginary army of slavering violent right-wing neojihadists who will begin mutilating the genitals of women, blowing up school buses, introducing compulsory Christianity on pain of death, and outlawing nonBiblical education just as soon as, um, they finish their beers or something, the following is the grounds for argument. I provide so we can understand each other better, and as we all know all conflict stems from a lack of understanding.

Furthermore, any and all dishonest or incompetent thing that any liberal does- especially Mark himself- is just fine because unidentified conservatives do it all the time only more betterer and Dick Cheney said something about it just last week and by the time you finish watching the obvious violent enemy of all that is good in the world by watching Fox News we'll have entirely forgotten whatever thing Mark the liberal did because LOOK A PONY

Conservatives are bad, terrible people that hate freedom and anyone different from them and education and intelligence and success and the beautiful flower of human reasoning and hope and we will all be better off just as soon as we've gotten rid of them. Oh, and the worst thing about them is they try to fool you into seeing your normal fellow Americans with different opinions as stupid and evil.

If you have ever agreed with a Republican about anything you obviously LOVED it when Bush spent like a drunken trophy wife with no plan for debt and you're a HUGE HYPOCRITE for disapproving of Obama spending like a drunken Imelda Marcos with no plan for debt. Also you hate doing ANYTHING about ANY problem and you just want problems to continue because you hate change. Any sputtering about how you actually want to overhaul most of American government, just not the same way Obama does, IS VICIOUS LIES. So stop lying, dammit! It gets us nowhere.

Obama has proved forever he's nonpartisan because he's kept basically the entirety of Bush's evil antihuman terror policies also Republicans never have useful plans except when they do only it's evil but not after Obama redeems it SO DO YOU THINK WE SHOULD WATERBOARD DEMOCRATS OR WHAT? HUH, YOU LIBERTY-HATING SECURITY FREAK oh hey pony

We will spend our way out of this recession even though I said that was lies and foolishness when it was the Bush administration and we should believe Obama utterly on this because he's said he'll make mistakes. The economy will turn around under his policies because the Republican policies I will now make up wouldn't work.

And now I'll make a prediction. One week from now, in a distant other thread of the FUTURE:

"Taxes? Economy? Torture? Libel? Stop waving all those links to sourced information. What the hell do you people want from me, I have a life, I don't have time to feed your goddamn pony."
LabRat, I am not worthy. Thank you for that inspired response. I hereby tag this post with the coveted "Moment of Zen" tag.
