With a flaccid member in one hand and a laptop in the other.
rsr sends me this link about Snowflake, the Bitter Bitch and the NRA blogfest
I registered for this, with full intention of going, and the day they received David Codrea's and my registration, they abruptly stopped registering people and refused to confirm the auto-confirmation we both received. I wasted money rejoining the NRA in Indianapolis with the entire intention of going.
Some friends had offered to pay my expenses and I got confirmation from my heart doctor that I could fly. However, I was not going to waste other people's money to fly across the country just to be snubbed and frustrated in my purpose of trying to build bridges to some of the more studly and principled folks who currently identify with the pragmatist camp. There are things we could profitably work on together, if they would but venture a bit further from their carefully crafted safe cocoon.
David Codrea's analysis of this convention, found here, is dead on. The NRA and the Snowflakes of the world will, in the final analysis, be a tertiary consideration to the preservation of our liberties. Look, if they are so cowardly and cravenly that they cannot send me an email confirming they withdrew my confirmation, where are they going to get the guts to confront the Leviathan?
Cowards. Cowards all.
