Quote Of The Week

"A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murderer is less to fear." - Cicero

The Gun Culture's Dirty Little Secret :: 06/18/2018

Does the United States Constitution mean what it says? Does it say what it means?

Or was it written as the "operating system" for a free society, by and for ordinary men, women, and children, and intended to be read and understood by everyone?

When I was a kid, nothing riled me up more than the idea of someone messing with my mother. While my father got “messed with” plenty, he was a police officer, and that went with the job. Besides, those people ended up in jail for their efforts. In other words, Dad could take care of himself. Mom, on the other hand, was tough enough, but she wasn’t someone who could hold her own in a confrontation. So I felt I had an obligation to protect her.
