    •  It's astounding to me, just astounding... (3+ / 0-)

      ...that Ben Franklin saw this canard coming from 230 years out, and gave us his wonderful and instructive quote, which this place has repurposed and cited time and again, and now there are Kossacks running around suggesting that if we just trade a few liberties for the illusion of safety, all will be fine.

      The balance between safety and liberty?  Not one single soul has ever answered for me why those two things are exclusive, or why we can't have both in abundance.  Not one.  But I'm supposed to swallow this lump of shit.

      Never.
