You're an outlaw. Get used to it.

I couldn't tell you the date for sure, but I'll bet the first time I told you that you are going to need to become comfortable with being an outlaw was within the first year or so of launching this blog-- in other words, probably 18 or so years ago. (The earliest example I found was from May of 2007, which is in the first year of the blog.)

And it's only more obvious today than it was back then.

If you don't want to be a slave you're going to have to be an outlaw. And you might as well get comfortable with it now. Unless you're OK with being a slave, in which case, why are you reading my blog?

Several times over the years my dad has told me it was a good thing his dad died before certain social trends took hold-- because he wouldn't have been able to handle them.

I never want to be that way, but that doesn't mean I'm going to quietly accept certain unacceptable things without speaking out. Even if it's unpopular or illegal to speak the truth about them.

I don't want to be an angry, out-of-place old man, I'd rather be an outlaw who just doesn't care what society, through government, dictates. 

Sure, it would be nice if society and government changed (or in the case of government, died a horrible death) so that liberty was valued and no longer illegal. But my opinions aren't going to change to fit the dying culture if that doesn't happen. 

If the bad guys-- who I have less than zero respect for anyway-- are going to label me an outlaw for doing what I have a natural human right to do, I'm OK with that. Are you?

Help me cover the expense of my colon surgery, if you can and if you want to.
Thank you!
