Thoughts, essays, and writings on Liberty. Written by the heirs of Patrick Henry.

“Men are expendable; women and children are not. A tribe or a nation can lose a high percentage of its men and still pick up the pieces and go on, as long as the women and children are saved. But if you fail to save the women and children, you've had it, you're done, you're through! You join Tyrannosaurus Rex, one more breed that bilged its final test.”     Robert A. Heinlein,    Address at the U.S. Naval Academy April 5, 1973

Quote Of The Day

by Brad Warbiany

Megan McArdle coins a new word:

That’s why I really wish the media wouldn’t act like, well, a bunch of elitist hooligans who are out to get her. I’ve coined a new phrase to cover the situation: Palinoia. It’s when you think people are out to get you, and then they do their best to justify your erroneous belief.

I like it… It boils the old aphorism, “Even paranoids have enemies”, into a nice single word…

Now if we can just get Ozzy & Black Sabbath back together to record “Palinoid”, and Stephen will have a new song for Liberty Rock Friday :-)
