@boomerang,
... and speaking of derailing a thread..... I'm stopping this now and hoping it gets back on track because I'm truly interested in what people think about this.

Sorry, David.

He liked the book very much. He still references it regularly.
I 'm very happy to hear that.
When I found it in the bookstore,
I thought that it had good potential to please; beautiful historical pictures,
with good explanations, in my opinion. That 's Y I got it.

David, that Richard Bach quote may be the high point of your postings on a2k.
His work is mostly metaphysical
and I tend not to discuss that indiscriminately, in public.

It's just too bad that you seem to need to pack heat to not live in fear all the time.
Well, I don't fear flat tires (get one every few years), but I carry a spare and a jack
in my trunk anyway. I don't expect to get a heart attack,
but I have health insurance, regardless.
Its good to be prepared; not just me, but everyone.

Jack, my point has not been that I shoud be packing heat.
I 've had plenty of guns for many years n decades. I grew up with them.
MY point is that EVERYONE ELSE shoud be packing heat.
THAT will generate an anti-collectivist, pro-liberty sentiment
that will grow progressively more pervasive, influencing many elections.
I CARE about that. I want America to return to being
"the Land of the Free and the Home of the Brave".

I do wonder at your continual harping on violence.
Self reliance is pivotal; it is supercritical qua
the difference between collectivism combined with authoritarianism,
as DISTINCT from personal liberty, hedonism and Individualism and laissez faire free enterprize.
Thay r anathema to one another. To me: freedom is CONSUMATELY important.
2nd Amendment freedom is antithetical to dependence upon
the collective for one's very existence. This is the most profound civil rights issue.

Your chance of being terribly burned are probably considerably greater than of suffering a violent attakc,
I know people who have been robbed (or attempted, including ME), but with all respect,
I don t know anyone who has been "terribly burned".

yet I doubt you carry a fire extingusher with you.
I have one in my house.
It is less ideological than my guns.
As Aristotle put it:
"The Commonwealth is theirs who hold the arms:
the sword and sovereignty
ever walk hand in hand" (On Politics)
or as Jesus put it:
"If you don 't have a sword, you better buy one." Luke 22:36

Too many of you guys seem to get fixated on one low probability thing and it starts to rule your life.
As I have posted b4,
I remember many times being in bed at night at age 3,
remembering, focusing on the revolvers I'd seen on the hips
of police and of bank guards. My mind was (kinda joyfully) locked on them.

You lose your inner otterness.

Parenthetically, speaking of otterness, have you ever looked in on Roberta's Beautiful Animals thread? Thre's a daily otter there,
and otters are really the otters of the universe, but we can be second if we try. I recommend it.
Thanks; I 'll try it.

@OmSigDAVID,

I think that this Olympic policy is manipulating the minds of the public,
using public tax funds, to cause them to believe what government desires.

Me, I drive a car. Usually I'm too kind-hearted to use its deadly force, but don't you dare cut in front of me!

Seriously though, I think that target shooting, and the self-discipline it requires, is worthy of showing to kids, especially to those who are fascinated by guns. It's the exact opposite of the testosterone-fueled rampages that the mayor of London is trying to discourage.
