I'm a lady whose most outstanding attributes (intelligence, independence, drive, a sense of humor, pride, and the lack of a filter) both make me the fabulous person I am and will also probably get me killed if I ever go to the "bad side of town" without an escort. Needless to say, I'm dangerously fascinating.
Live dangerously: question everything.
I don’t care who you are: if you have a belief, stand for it.
If you honestly and truly believe in something, then back it up.
Get out there and make your thoughts known. Inform and educate others.
If you’re questioned, proudly state your piece with your shoulders set, your back straight, and your eyes high. Don’t waver your voice or try to speak quietly. If you put your all into something, have some pride and stand up for it.
I despise several things in this world, and cowards are in the top ten.
I’m not saying it’s cowardly to be scared; I’m saying it’s cowardly to back down because of your fear. Everyone’s afraid of something, and if you let it rule you, you’re no better than your oppressors.
In the immortal words of Motley Crue, stick to your guns.
I have a serious problem with opening messages, and then forgetting their existence. If I do this to you, I apologize for being a dick, and I hope you can both forgive me and reply once I realize my mistake.
A teacher at my school posted this on his door, and my friend and I thought this was rather tactless considering the recent school shootings. So I posted a sign next to it that said “this offends me <—-”
Apparently he called us cowards in his next block class. I kind of want to walk into his classroom and ask him why he thinks I’m a coward and present him with my rather articulate argument for gun control, a subject which I researched at length and wrote an article about for the school newspaper. Good idea or bad idea?
I wrote a biography on Thomas Jefferson once when I was in high school.
THAT DID NOT IN ANY WAY, SHAPE, MATTER OR FORM MAKE ME AN EXPERT ON THOMAS JEFFERSON.
The problem with your generation is that you think you have the right to not be offended. Check your Constitution. It’s not in there. You know what is? The right to a firearm.
^^^ What ConservativeRevolution said… Honestly all your lectures do nothing as statistics and such prove Gun Control actually doesn’t work, it has the inverse effect of what people intend. Your generation’s problem as previously stated is you think you know more than you actually do. Obviously you still haven’t even graduated High School.
If you can’t verbally state that it offends you, why it offends you, and how it offends you, then you have both a poorly articulated argument and no sense of backbone.
If you’re going to be a whiny bitch, at least be ready to duke it out for what you believe in, not leave a message and go “huzzah!” when you don’t get caught in the act.
This is my new favorite YouTube video for parties.
I introduced my friend to Supernatural, and while she’s only on the second season, I needed to show her what she was in for if she comes to a convention with me.
I looked outside to see if pigs were flying because I never though I’d see this. Today, Pierce Morgan (who has been a constant on-air advocate for strict gun control) admitted that after seeing the Obama administration’s scandals, he believes gun activists have a legitimate concern about government tyranny.
Here’s the video:
from Hot Air:
I’d guess that these scandals have put an end to any notion of reviving gun control in this session of Congress. In light of the revelations at the IRS and the Department of Justice over the last few days, which red-state Senators of either party are going to sign up to expand federal oversight of guns? Obama and his team couldn’t get a gun-control bill out of the Senate, let alone the House, even with the media not just cheerleading every step of the way but conducting its own full-court press on behalf of Obama. With the media irate over the raid on the Associated Press (and asking tough questions about the IRS), I doubt that the White House is going to be able to put the band back together for a long time, if ever.
I think that Ed Morrissey’s analysis here is a little more optimistic than I am, but it speaks to a larger point I want to make. These scandals should (in a just world) take down the Obama Presidency. They should. I’m not saying they will, but Benghazi by itself is far worse than Watergate.
But putting the screws on Obama shouldn’t be the only focus here. Conservatives also need to use this potentially pivotal moment to teach the American people just how dangerous the Federal government can be. As Rep. Mike Kelley said earlier today, the Federal government can essentially do anything it wants to, and nothing is holding them accountable.
Big government is by nature tyrannical. It always has been, and it always will be. It’s time to chose: do we move forward with tyranny, or do we stop and take a stand for liberty?
Liberty. Let’s pick her back up and dust her off.
Is anyone else screaming? I feel as if the world’s turned itself upside down, so I’m clutching at the floor in a vain attempt to save myself.
