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

All the News That Fits the Agenda

All the News That Fits the Agenda

I really get a kick out of Matt Drudge and his skill at arranging (and titling links). Example:

The authoritative New York Times tells us that all this cold and snow we're getting may be the result of Global Warming! (Which even the high priests of Global Warming have admitted has been on a ten-year hiatus and they don't know why: "The fact is that we can’t account for the lack of warming at the moment and it is a travesty that we can’t." Kevin Trenberth from the East Anglia computer hack/leak.)

But the philosophy cannot be wrong!

However, there's this interesting bit of continuing fallout concerning the "Paper of Record":
UPDATE 3-New York Times ad outlook dim, shares fall

Print advertising declines to continue in first quarter

* Q4 adjusted EPS $0.44 vs $0.38 average analyst estimate

* Q4 revenue down 11.5 percent to $681.2 million

* Shares down almost 9 percent

NEW YORK, Feb 10 (Reuters) - The New York Times Co (NYT.N) warned on Wednesday that print newspaper advertising will continue to decline, sending shares down nearly 9 percent, even as the company slashed costs to reach a higher-than-expected fourth-quarter profit.

The results, like that of other U.S. newspaper publishers, show that revenue declines are easing as the economy improves and advertisers are taking ginger steps back into the market. Even so, they are reducing what they spend on print media anyway, keeping newspapers' long-term futures uncertain.
Obviously this is yet another of the myriad of problems we're told that are caused or worsened by Anthropogenic Global Warming!
