Cooper Quote - Reasoned Argument

Ed Detrixhe points out that when you overload the circuits on your computer the screen goes blank. Likewise, when you confront a hoplophobe with reasoned argument, his mind goes blank. We have so little contact with those other people that it is sometimes hard for us to understand that they exist--but they do. The media, the megalopolis and academia are lousy with them. Reasoned argument is entirely on our side, but sometimes it is hard to find anyone to reason with. That blank screen is hardly an interesting antagonist.

Cooper Quote - Street Crime

We continue to be exasperated by the view, apparently gaining momentum in certain circles, that armed robbery is OK as long as nobody gets hurt! The proper solution to armed robbery is a dead robber. It is the responsibility of the victim to turn the tables and demolish the robber. Street crime will cease only when the perpetrator becomes convinced that his operations will almost surely result in his death.

From a Federal Judge

Most rank-and-file gun grabbers are gun grabbers for three specific reasons: (1) they don't trust themselves, and in particular, don't trust themselves not to eventually wreak mayhem or suicide if they were armed with a gun, and they project this insecurity onto other people (expecting other people to eventually wreak mayhem or suicide when armed), (2) they do not believe they have the confidence and courage to actually defend themselves with a weapon if they come under assault, so they view the ability of others to do so as an advantage others have over them, and they seek to negate their disadvantage, and (3) they do not want to take responsibility for their own safety, because they are not sure they are worth protecting, because they are lazy and feel entitled to have others protect them, and because they have learned (from corrupt people) that helplessness is a currency that can be traded for certain advantages and indulgences. The first motivates them to voice hysterical expectations of blood running in the streets in states that pass concealed carry laws. The second fuels their energetic, viciously hateful campaigns against all who seek to obtain and maintain the means of self-defense. The third is a sort of smoldering engine motivating them to limply but stubbornly oppose the institution of individual self-defense and its means. All are, of course, wholly without moral legitimacy.

Surprise - Communists support Democrats

Recently Fidel Castro came out and endorsed the candidacy of Hillary Clinton.

Such an occurrence should be grounds for immediate removal of yourself from the race and a reevaluation of who you are, why you seek office, and what you stand for, Hillary.

Of course, it will have no effect at all.

I doubt she will even be shamed by this....

It is indicative of the extreme anti-American approach held by the majority of the Democratic Party.
