Quote of the day

Of all tyrannies a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It may be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baronís cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated, but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end, for they do so with the approval of their own conscience. - C.S. Lewis

Go back and read that quote again. Then, go read this. And this.

Land of the Free, my ass.

All part of the "We Know Whats Best For You" mentality that prevails in Moonbat mindset.
I have never smoked other than a good cigar now and then , and I am becoming a militant Pro smoker supporter. If you want to run a business that allows smoking than that is your business. The free market will dictate wether that is good or not. Second part, How many people have been arrested under the Patriot Act?..............Zero

You know, God forbid somoene try to take my kids from me becasue I smoke. Or take my computer becasue I believe Big Brother needs to get the fuck out of my life. I will take my foul mouth, gun toting, smoking ass and go ballistic. Then maybe I can sit on death row and see how many crazies protest my execution.

Yes I agree 100% no one should impose their beliefs on others. I wish George W. Bush could understand that. Democracy at the point of a gun is not democracy.

Pardon me James, but that is one of the dumbest statements I've heard in a long time. Please tell me you got that from Dean.

Don't be blaming the liberals for this shit. It's the so called religious right that's out there pushing for more laws that infringe on personal freedom and the Patriot Act is the biggest fraud of them all. It hasn't done jack for fighting terrorism but it's done a dandy job of destroying your privacy and due process. It's sending us straight down the fast road to a freaking police state. Last I looked it was Republicans pushing that crap.

Great post and great links. Thanks Rob.

Libby,

It was Diane Feinstein who proposed the methamphetamine part of the Patriot Act, not the republicans - unless Ms Feinstein changed her party affiliation in the past week. Check your facts before you point your fingers.

Sorry I'm sick and I can hardly see what I'm writing on this tiny little laptop. The point is that both sides are guility but the Repubs are doing just as much to foster a nanny government. I also don't think it was Feinstein's bill. That atrocity was spawned by Mark Souder (R-IN) in the House. She just jumped on his bandwagon. But again, both parties are guilty as sin when it comes to the drug war and the common sense from both sides as well, what little there is of it.

It's time to throw all the bums out (career politicians) and get some new people into office who understand the concept of representing the citizens they work for instead of the corporations who fund their campaigns.

Amen, brother!

This isn't liberals. This isn't conservatives. This is EXTREMISTS on both sides. The vast majority of us are too overwhelmed by all the rhetoric on both sides to really get a grip on this. Too many extremists are polarizing issues so that there is never compromise - just two opposing poles. NO gov't intervention, or TOTAL gov't intervention. If we could just eliminate 10% of the political spectrum (5 from each side), the rest of us might just be able to get along.

Methinks Claire Wolfes' time has arrived...

And why won't just ONE tobacco company STOP selling cigarettes(and paying the taxes) in just one of these moonbat-driven states??
