    Bull Run, huh? Maybe if it were held at "Manassas Park" I'd go, but I don't know about this Yankee name...

    In the final seconds of your life, just before your killer is about to dispatch you to that great eternal darkness, what would you rather have in your hand? A cell phone or a gun?

    If you lost both the battle of Manassas I and the rematch Manassas II, you'd have to have a lot of bull running to claim you are a better army.

    I think the battles were also called Manassas Junction I and II.

    It'll go smoothernext time. They've widened the bridge.
    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.

    Just got back. I didn't see anyone else open carrying, but no problems either, not that I expected any. I got a compliment for open carrying by one of the libertarians there, and a question about caliber from someone else there.
