speaks for itself

In general, the anti-rights cultists have largely abandoned the lie of “only wanting to compromise”, which is just as well; it was always a lie, everyone knew it was always a lie, and it convinced no one. 

But, occasionally, you find a useful idiot who did not receive the memo: 

@comebackshane: @Soldier1eaODGrn Reasonable should be determined by an equal number of representatives from both sides. Compromise.


quote of the day – archer

We all know that "gun control" does not work at its professed purpose – reducing crime and making people "safer". History has taught us this time and time again, and continues to teach it to us to this very day, but the invariable question is, "Why does ‘gun control’ not work?"

Well, we could go into to the sociopolitical ramifications of disarming the law-abiding segment of your population, the reality that criminals prefer defenseless […]

the slippery slope of gun control

I would like to take a moment today to extend my sincere thanks to the legislatures of both New York State and Connecticut for proving, beyond a shadow of a doubt, that "gun control" is, in truth and fact, a slippery slope.

Anti-rights cultists come absolutely unhinged every time you mention the possibility of "gun control" itself being a slippery slope, and tend to immediately decry such mutterings as prima facie logical […]

jeremy alcede apologizes. maybe.

So I will freely admit that I did not return to Jeremy Alcede’s Tactical Firearms webpage after the first time I followed Tam’s link back on Wednesday, so I was completely unaware of the apparent "apology" he put up on said page, as was helpfully pointed out to me by Hsoi. While he takes the unquestionable high road when it comes to these kinds of things, I tend to […]

quote of the day – washington times

It must rather suck to be an anti-rights cultist these days… Your major organizations are getting their hands slapped when they are not too busy showing off their desperation, Constitutional Carry is slowly, inexorably marching across the country and only one state does not have some kind of allowance for the possibility of concealed carry, what used to be one of the firmest bastions of "gun control" […]

just not wired normally

We have already touched on how anti-rights nuts have no idea what a “middle ground” is, but we are going to delve a little more into that concept today by briefly examining how their worlds are typically defined by extremes, with nothing “middle”-ish to be seen.

Consider how the anti-rights nuts want our society to be structured: an armed police state (after all, a state wherein only the police and military have […]

i have your “middle ground” right here

It has […]

compromise with those willing to compromise

In addition to being a fairly appropriate warning to the “liberals” and “progressives” of our country, this all-too-appropriate venting also happens to represent my growing sentiments towards anti-rights nuts in general:

Realizing that you are losing your grip on the public schools, that the youth that propelled the boy-king to victory have abandoned you, that the bitter, blue collar white workers are now Tea Party grandmas and grandpas, that you have lost […]
