Libertarian thinking about everything.
--Ere he shall lose an eye for such a trifle... For doing deeds of nature! I'm ashamed. The law is such an ass. -- G. Chapman, 1654.

The Gentle, Selfless Liberal Tradition
In 1896 William Jennings Bryan declared we would not crucify mankind on a cross of gold, whateverthehell that actually meant. Then he went on a victory* tour and by 1899 was commanding huge fees. Interesting that his terms were somewhat illiberal, though not surprising to those who have made a study of the hypocrisy of the sanctimonious left.
Never mind that U.S. currency was gold-backed in those days.
Kum Ba Yah.
* He was celebrating only his personal celebrityhood, a wiser population in those days denying anything more to the demagogic rabble rousers.
