Very strange, isn't it?
By co-incidence I've been reading this:
The information on the post-1688 law guaranteeing the right of British protestants to be armed, and essentially allowing the legal right of revolution against a despotic government is fascinating.

If you like Guns and Violence: The English Experience, you ought to try Malcolm's previous book, To Keep and Bear Arms, The Origins of an Anglo-Saxon Right. In it, I believe, she reveals the true meaning of the phrase "A well-regulated militia."

Thanks, I'll certainly look out for that once I've finished the current book.

Well, it could be the average size of one of your articles...

Or the furor of the comments-threads.

We really can't tell unless we can generate an experiment with a good control-case.

Turn down the snark, it's drowning out your message! ;)

Give it a rest Kevin. We all know you're afraid of debate and just blocked these people from your site. :)

And personally went to their homes and made them stop blogging too! ;)

Keep up the good work, Kevin. You are an excellent asset in this struggle for personal liberty :) which is why they might be afraid....

Sucking up will do you no good! ;)

Invitations to debate a subject, which are initially accepted then abandoned, are themselves a form of debate.

And yes, I think those with emotional and feel good based opinions fear logical analysis and facts.

Keep swinging buddy, we're winning.

You scary, scary, bastard, you. Frightening helpless, unarmed people like that.

What a meanie. :)

*I* can't help it if they can't tell the difference between a sheepdog and a wolf. ;)

Once upon a time, I joined a forum unrelated to politics, and spent some time lurking before I became comfortable enough to start talking.

In the "general topics" section, there were frequent political topics, discussed among a forum population that I would rate as about 80% somewhat to very liberal.

Today, there are almost never, ever any political topics, and when there are they are very diplomatic. Republican-bashing has vanished entirely.

Search me, I don't know *what* happened. Think it was something in the water?

Try Chris Crawford.

You aren't using underhand, despicable and unfair tactics such as using facts in the discussion, are you??
