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 found an interesting article today on the top college degrees for earnings potential. The top 14 careers are given in this table:

You'll note that Aerospace Engineers get the most money. This is because they design things like the Stealth Bomber that can deliver ordnance from thousands of miles away without being detected.

Chemical Engineers are second, because they make the stuff that goes in that ordnance, and everyone wants as much blasty as they can get per pound of payload.

Computer Engineers design guidance systems to make sure that the payload gets to the proper place, at least to the nearest meter.

Electrical Engineers design the hardware that the Computer Engineers interface to.

Mechanical Engineers design the hardware that is controlled by the stuff the Electrical Engineers design.

The Civil Engineers? They design the targets.
