I really strive to not use quotes from sources that I have not read, but on occasion, I make an exception for a truly exceptional quote.
Another great negative pleasure I enjoy is not having a PhD. Some of the most deeply stupid people in the country have PhD’s.
“How can anyone consider it to be either logical or moral to force other people to be defenseless because of a theory without any factual evidence? Yet that is what gun control laws amount to.”
Is the Constitution making a comeback?
I’m afraid to hope.
I do not encourage or condone gambling, but paternalism is worse than letting people destroy their own lives.
The extent of my gun collection has been a topic of interest in the past.
I keep reading all of these stories about how dangerous and deadly the mythical AR15 is. How this monstrous killing machine should should never fall into civilian hands. The photo above is of an AR15, legally speaking. This small piece of metal is legally the firearm itself. I do not understand the fear.
If I have a right to freedom of speech, to privacy, or to the ownership of a house, everyone else has an obligation to respect it. But when I claim a “right” to “an income sufficient to live in dignity,” whether I am willing to work for it or not, what I am really claiming is a right to part of somebody else’s earned income. What I am asserting is that he has a duty to earn more than he needs or wants to live on so that the surplus may be seized from him and turned over to me to live on.

You can slather as much jargon-laded intellectual make-up as you wish upon tariffs such as the one that the U.S. government just imposed on Americans who buy aircraft assembled in Canada. Underneath the make-up is a predatory pig – a vile beast just as hideous, just as vicious, and just as destructive with the make-up as without it.
Theory: Government exists to protect it citizens from being preyed upon by those who would greedily use force or fraud to further their own well-being at the larger expense of the People.
Practice: Government uses force and fraud to prey upon its citizens in order to serve those who greedily seek to further their own well-being at the larger expense of the People.
Enforcing “net neutrality” does the exact opposite of what its proponents claim. It results in an internet where a handful of large corporations have access to peering agreements with large transit providers (what some people refer to as “the fast lane”), and the rest are subject to far fewer options in terms of services, and even upon growing and gaining market share, will be denied the opportunity to shop around for different ISP plans that suit them best.

The end of net neutrality is the best single deregulatory initiative yet taken by the Trump administration.
