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 - Markadelphia's Back!

From the comment thread to Bitter Clingers, Unix Jedi gets the nod for today's Quote of the Day:
You're lecturing, and you're telling us that 2+2 = yellow.  Further, if you multiply by Pie, you get Jasmine scent.

Let's break down your broken-down thought.

that there are very wealthy

Wealth does not equal income.

people in the 47 percent who also don't pay federal income tax

So you admit that the 47 percent figure is only discussing "federal income tax", so your strawmen of other people's "confusion" and "incorrectness" are deliberate obfuscations and deceptions.

so the tax cuts argument will most certainly reach them.

Why? If they're not paying income tax, why would a further reduction matter to them, personally?

Lemme restate what you just said:

People who have a lot of stuff, don't pay income taxes, but the chance they might pay less would affect them.

Mark, and you've got the effrontery to try and "Furthermore", lecture us?

You can't even keep your own "facts" coherent for 20 sentences!
You, sir, win one Internet! Where would you like it delivered?
