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

Steven Den Beste Returns

In a rare political post on his anime blog Chizumatic, Steven opines on the media's reaction to the current Washington scandals in See no Evil.  My only disagreement with Steven comes from this excerpt:
So even though we're increasingly uncomfortable acting as a shill for the government instead of as an opposing force, the way we always thought the press was supposed to be, ...
The press doesn't take that position. The press has an administrative control bias that is decidedly Leftist in slant. They're an "opposing force" only when the wrong people are in charge, or are doing something that the New York Times editors don't agree with.  The rest of the time they see their job as conveying the divine grace of government to the laypeople of the public.

Other than that, spot-on.

Perhaps now someone in addition to Sharyl Atkisson of ABCNNBCBS will do some actual reporting.
