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

At the NRA Annual Meeting

Got out of class at 11:30, got to the GRB Convention center by about 12:30, drove around for half an hour trying to find a parking lot closer than half a mile away and failed.  Finally got to the media room a few minutes ago and got my credentials.  Now I'm sitting at a table in the media room with Nancy R., Jay G., and Ambulance Driver.

Had dinner last night with those three and:

Weer'd Beard
In Jennifer's Head
Gay Cynic
Sandcastle Scrolls and family
Expert Witness
Smoke on the Water
No Lawyers - Only Guns and Money
Snooze Button Ronin

And a couple of readers/commenters.  If I missed anyone, my apologies.

Cool!!  Time to hit the convention floor.  Looking forward to the rest of the weekend.
