A few months ago, I happened to have a rather… interesting*… conversation with the warped and benighted mind behind the Twitter account of @1StopCity. A recurring theme in this particular conversation is that unless you have a particular "need" for something or to do something, you have absolutely no right to that thing or to do that thing, or, in his very own words, "Odds against you "needing" a gun negate your right to own [...]
And not a very good one at that.
A few days ago, Baldr Odinson, one of the more dishonest, lie-prone, straight-up moronic anti-rights cultists out there, put up some asinine list entitled "You’re Probably A Pro-Gun Extremist If …. " which basically boiled down to, "If you disagree with me and my ‘gun control’ desires, you are an ‘extremist’ and in need of professional psychiatric help".
Friendly guy, that Baldr. I do wonder [...]
Proposing an amendment to the Constitution of the United States repealing the right to keep and bear arms.
Resolved by the Senate and House of Representatives of the United States of America in Congress assembled (two-thirds of each House concurring therein), That the following article is proposed as an amendment to the Constitution of the United States, which shall be valid for all intents and purposes as part of [...]
Our rights, freedoms, and liberties, such as they are, came at an extraordinarily steep price.
Take a moment today to remember those who voluntarily paid it, for our sake.
Jesus Christ was not a pacifist.
Anyone who has read the Bible is familiar with the story of the money-changers in the Temple, and how the Son of God dealt with those who had cheated His people in His house. Likewise, Jesus exhorted his followers to procure swords or knives, even at the cost of selling their own garments if necessary.
Jesus was, however, non-aggressive, and therein lies the crux (no pun [...]
Yesterday, I received this email from Patrick:
Am I wrong in this? Look at my comments on her site.
I agree that he was incredibly stupid. I disagree that he is responsible for the deaths of the U.N. people and any soldiers. We can’t walk around on egg shells based on what others may do… right?
I value your opinion so I kinda wanted to see what you thought…. her site, your site.. [...]
The even-shorter version of my post from this weekend:
Using polls as leverage to support further gun control just means you think the South should have been permitted to keep their slaves.
After all, most Southerners believed that the slave-holders should have been able to keep their property, and most Northerners did not care (and quietly wanted those darkies to stay down South, so they would not have to deal with them), so [...]
I know I spend a lot of time generating up pretty pictures, and I know I spend a lot of time discussing the merits of firearm ownership, and I know I spend a lot of time debunking the idiotic and bigoted arguments of the anti-rights nuts, and I know I collect a lot of interesting and useful statistics, arguments, and quotes to support the side of the pro-rights activists in America, but there is one [...]
Today, we are going to return to the tactic that prompted me to create this category in the very beginning… In Southern Beale’s latest anti-gun screed, she started off whining and moaning about how her previous anti-rights blather seemed to attract some less-than-salutory comments and attention; however, I find it all too amusing that she would wish nearly a hundred million Americans dead (which she did in that previous post), and then try to claim [...]
Given that Kevin will be forced to upgrade/change his commenting system in the near future, I figured this needed to be preserved for posterity’s sake:
I may be getting a glimmer of what it going on here too.
Could you please explain how it is that you determine the difference between truth and falsity?
What is the process you use?
I don’t think you know how to do it. This is a common [...]
