    Nobody's talking about taking cars away, unless you think encouraging electric cars and mass transit is "removing voters from their cars." No one but the vegans wants to do away with meat-eating...

    I always drool over restaurant reviews featuring exotic drinks (at exotic prices), but trying to recreate all of them would seem to be a fool's errand. Not to mention that I don't need help to be...

    Instead of wailing that it can't be done, let's find a way--like we found a way to develop a national highway system or go to the moon. It's not like we're a third-rate country full of dimwits...

    Yeah, I guess he's fond of hyperbole. His hit list was composed of Democratic politicians and media figures, however. The Norwegian child-killer Breivik was one of his heroes.

    Who would have believed ten years ago we would have universal same sex marriage and widespread legalized cannabis? Single payer health care has a larger constituency than either--reports say 70-78%.

    I do yearn for a revolution, preferably bloodless.

    In Joyful, the author discusses fiber-bombing, the semi-subversive practice of covering mundane--usually public--articles and surfaces with yarn. There are books on it.
