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

"He Bravely Ran Away, Away..."

No, not Markaderpia this time.

I recently had a lengthy exchange (I know, so unusual for me) over at with a Second Amendment Denier - one of those certain to their bones that the Second Amendment protects only a "collective right."  I also responded to another commenter in that thread.  I received a notification that the original poster had replied to my last comment, and I clicked on that, read it, and was REALLY prepared to unleash, when I noticed I couldn't reply.  Why?

Down the Memory Hole!!

Interestingly, someone at Quora liked one of my übercomments enough to repost it, and that link survives.  It was not a reply to "Nick Malik," the original thread poster, but someone else in that comment thread.  So, if you're pining away for one of my überposts, go read that.  Warning, it's just a repeat of what you've read here many times before, but hey, that's pretty much true of the last dozen or so überposts.
