The Smallest Minority on earth is the individual. Those who deny individual rights cannot claim to be defenders of minorities. - Ayn Rand
My niece pointed out to me that Clay Aiken had come out of the closet. My response was, "Who?"
She was utterly dumbfounded. I wasn't.

T-Shirt front side:
"If it has an off-button, it is not oppression."
"Where's Government's off button?"
"If it has an off-button, it is not oppression".
That's true in that context, and as such can be discarded and disregarded.
For the non-off-button context, and that itself is ubiquitous, it's effect is to overwhelm even the mental-ignore.
Academe pushes it, teaches it, includes it in course-work; it's belly-shirted into the work environment and incorporated into company policies; it's in almost every store, shop, and mall; it's on bumperstickers, street signs, building re-names, junk-mail, product-packaging.
It's not a mere nuisance; it's a full-throated attack aimed on undermining and destroying Western culture.
I'd love to see that quote on T-shirts. Glad you liked it. (If any of your friends ever does do those T-shirts, I'll buy one.)
Have fun at the Gun Blogger Rendezvous. A great part of the world. I've very fond memories of stopping for a bite to eat in places like Winnemucca and Tonopah, and of nights spent by Pyramid Lake, or in Rachel, Nevada. Had some great late-night conversations. (Never stopped in Reno though, for some reason, just drove through.)
Infinite Jest wasn't David Foster Wallace's only -work-, and come to think of it _Broom of the System_ and _The Girl With Curious Hair_ were novels or at least fictional memoirs.
Try Oblivion. Save a tree.
(Then, make that Obama Goatse thing a link indicating some substantiating claim, ya defaming wretch.)
