"Sell Crazy Someplace Else..."

"...we're all stocked up here."* Fair warning: I'm going to start posting discussions and links to information to counter the dangerous and self-defeating assertions of my Republican and other right-wing and "libertarian" friends -- not to try to convince them, they're too committed to their unfortunate and false-to-fact belief systems -- but to try to give heart to those with more sensible views, and perhaps even help (in a very small way) to mobilize a few from among the great majority of Americans who are moderate and liberal... (which is not a dirty word as some would try to have it, but instead a proud tradition that has served this country and its people well).

* Mark Andrus and James L. Brooks, "As Good as It Gets," 1997.


  1. Well us crazy little L libertarians will only read if you'll promise to listen. Besides "liberal" only became a bad word when it was take over by the socialists who want to imprison us. The Classical Liberals are the progenitors of the little L libertarians. In their fight against the oppression of the King, Church, and Mercantilism, they set the intellectual foundation for the Dead Old White Guys and the American Experiment. "Men can and should govern themselves." Sorry, but Gooferment using force and fraud on men and women isn't good idea. Liberty is the destiny. The Garden of Eden. Where the lamb will lie down with the Lion. Donna Nobis Pacem

  2. A propos of nothing, but just because almost everything I hear reminds me of something that RAH wrote: "We lived like that 'Happy Family' you sometimes see in traveling zoos: a lion caged with a lamb. It is a startling exhibit but the lamb has to be replaced frequently." - Robert A. Heinlein, Have Space Suit - Will Travel, 1958
