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

Another Excuse for Not Blogging

This is my current book queue:
(Click for full size)

I'm a bit over halfway through Sowell's Intellectuals and Society at the moment, and I just finished reading John Ringo's Live Free or Die (recommended, BTW) and Stephen Hunter's I, Sniper. That stack on the right is books I've already read. Those are all novels, mostly SciFi. Hardbacks go in a different pile. I read probably three or four novels to each non-fiction book. I had planned on slogging through those pretty much in the order they're stacked (not including books I pick up in the mean time), but after reading Tam's review of The Gun, I'll probably start on it as soon as I've finished Intellectuals.

I swear, sometimes I think my house is just a repository of horizontal surfaces on which I stack books.
