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

Lend Me Your Ears!*

I come not to praise the Constitution, but to bury it.

The evil that men do lives after them, the good is oft interred with their bones. So let it be with the Constitution. The noble Progressive hath told you that the Constitution was outdated. If it were so, it was a grievous fault, and grievously hath that document answer'd it.

Here, under leave of the Progressive and the rest - for the Progressive is an honourable man. Woman. Gender-neutral being.

So are they all, all honourable beings. Just ask them.

Come I to speak at the Constitution's funeral.

It was my friend, faithful and just to me. But the Progressive says it was outdated, too rigid, too difficult to understand.

And the Progressive is an honourable being.

The Constitution hath brought much freedom to America, which benefits did the general coffers fill. Did this in the Constitution seem outdated?

When that the poor have cried, the Constitution hath left their succor to the Citizens, who violated that document to provide that succor.

A rigid contract should be made of sterner stuff. Yet the Progressive says it was too rigid. And the Progressive is an honourable being.

I speak not to disprove what the Progressive spoke, but here I am to speak what I do know.

You all did love it once, not without cause. What cause withholds you then, to mourn for it?

O judgment! thou art fled to brutish beasts, and men have lost their reason. Bear with me. My heart is in the coffin there with the Constitution, and I must pause till it come back to me.
Recently, the Washington Post sold its interest in Newsweek for $1.

Time must be worth all of 12¢.
