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 - .Gov Shutdown Edition

From a comment at Instapundit:
All this havoc wreaked through the Park Service. Consider that for a moment. The National Park Service has managed to barricade scenic vistas in North Dakota, piss off World War 2 vets in DC, and keep small children from getting home to their parents after school in Tennessee. And it's just the Park Service! Imagine if the federal government were as omnipresent and powerful as the left wishes it were. "Sorry; we'd love for you to have your kidney transplant, but the government is shut down. All because you pesky citizens wouldn't behave!"

But holy crap, it's the Park Service! The absurdity is stupefying. Just the thought of using something as innocuous as the PARK SERVICE to cause so much damage--all for the sake of causing damage and pissing people off--confounds the mind. It's like a confederacy of clowns on tricycles, swarming over the nation, wreaking havoc with balloon animals and confetti--because those are the only tools at their disposal.

But, in any case, Obama's intended lesson was meant to be, "See how awful life is without your Federal Family?" But the lesson learned--I hope--is, "See how awful your Federal Family can make your life if you tick it off?" We're not seeing the absence of government; we're seeing an excess of bad government.
But only if you go online and look for it.
