    Ignorance and evil have always enabled one another.

    Not in any dictionary I’ve seen. Inability to grasp the difference accounts for a lot of misery in the world.

    Altruism and individualism are not contradictory. Compelled, coerced, collective altruism is not altruism at all. Only individually, freely chosen, freely given altruism is real. Anything else is counterfeit.

    Secret:

    I’m not suggesting that anyone limit the right–just saying you don’t always have to do something just because you can. I’ll defend their right to open carry an AR into Dairy Queen at the same time I maintain it may not be the smartest thing to do.

    I understand and agree that their “in your face” tactics are obnoxious. I don’t think I suggested running away with our tails between our legs. I’ll stand shoulder to shoulder with you in defending against their push to take away our rights. I’ll even defend your right to open carry all you want. I just won’t agree that it is a good idea in all circumstances or that doing so will achieve the normalization you seek.

    Agree completely. I just don’t believe that slinging an AR on before going for a burger and shake wins a lot of folks to our way of thinking.

    Agree. Going to extremes in exercising rights does not always make a strong statement in favor of the person exercising them. Fore example, the Utah Supreme Court recently ruled that a man was within his rights to flash young girls while wearing a diaper. http://www.sltrib.com/sltrib/news/57547900-78/bagnes-diaper-sexual-court.html.csp. While he might have been within his rights, my respect for him isn’t positively impacted. His own attorney said “Mr. Bagnes’ conduct is certainly unusual, strange, creepy, weird.” Amen. I don’t judge open carriers the same way, and I believe their hearts are in the right place, but there is room for a little discretion.

    I get your point. I don’t like the idea of requiring a permit to exercise a right either. My point goes more to the open/concealed choice. I am bothered by liberal/progressives, whose lack of judgment is often only exceed by their demand for recognition and attention. I don’t want to be like that.

    I have to agree with the NRA on this one. What is the purpose? CC works just fine.

    My thought too. That is more unnerving than the hold-up

    Posing and sanctimony. No one believes he is feeling any financial pinch in his personal life. How about no more multimillion $$ vacations this year?

    Nice Easter message.

    Seems like the first msm reporter to get truthful (in a meaningful way on a substantial topic) stands to become a legend. How would it be to be the one to change history by pointing out Emperor Obama’s lack of clothes in a way that made it impossible for others to keep up the farce? Could one person really start the dominos falling? I think so if it is the right person–and that person will be immortalized. Hard to resist, even for (especially for) a liberal reporter.

    I’m glad to see responses to Obama’s remarks that are more thoughtful than “He says if you own a business, you didn’t build it–someone else did!” I don’t think that is what he said. His remarks were extemporaneous and poorly structured, but I believe he was referring to the infrastructure he was addressing in prior sentences not an entrepreneur’s business. Unfortunately, by making a lot of noise based on a misinterpreting the remark, many high profile conservatives lose credibility, while at the same time missing a great opportunity to rebut what Obama and Warren really did say (and can’t retract or claim was taken out of contex). Zombie makes some excellent, substantive points. So do others he links to at the bottom of his article. To me the salient point is that the infrastructure Obama and Warrent toust was made possible by taxing the PRODUCTIVE commercial activities of individuals who created goods and services people need and want. They paid for it, and the people Obama is pandering to largely (almost entirely) did not, although they receive the benefit of it and have access to it equal to that enjoyed by the payers. Obama and Warren are claiming that those who pay little or no taxes, along with government (which organizes and redistributes wealth, but does not produce it to any significant extent) “built” the infrastucture. While government has limited, but important, role to play in organizing public works, it is not the engine that makes them possi

    Huh? I think he would recommend sticking a fork in your eye to cure a headache . . .

    Wow! Their thoughtful actions have completely won me over . . . not
