    And I think the mad rush of many to stock up ain't exactly helping things...

    Oh well, that's the marketplace.

    Yep.Last shopping trip, I put a humorous spin onprices by telling the sporting goods clerk that I wanted to buy someinvestment-grade ammunition.


    I'll make you an offer: I will argue and fight for all of your rights, if you will do the same for me. That is the only way freedom can work. We have to respect all rights, all the time--and strive to win the rights of the other guy as much as for ourselves.

    If I am equal to another, how can I legitimately govern him without his express individual consent?

    There is no human being on earth I hate so much I would actually vote to inflict government upon him.

    Although I dislike seeing prices go up, an increase of $2/hundred rounds, or thereabouts, on practice ammunition isn't enough to get me to stockpile. I'd have to buy 12 boxes, or 1200 hundred rounds, in order to save that $2.It doesn't seem worth it.
