Everyone has their own unique personal preferences. This is probably a good thing since it makes life interesting and keeps us from all fighting over the exact same stuff. Think how boring it would be if everyone preferred identical things. Variety is the spice of life.
Society can only exist if we each respect the rights of those around us and stand up against — with effective tools of defense — those who refuse to do so, whether it is the grimy mugger from the alley or the mentally compromised occupant of the Oval Office.
Senseless aggression toward innocent victims enrages me. No matter who is harmed or who commits the act. But to intentionally target children? Rage doesn’t begin to describe what I feel.
People like the murderer in the Buffalo, N.Y., grocery store will always find justification to be evil losers. He would have found some excuse even if no one had ever suspected that government is trying, for political purposes, to dilute the culture with those who don’t share it. The way to fight such ideas is to openly discuss them, not censorship. If you choose to censor ideas, I’ll think you have no argument against them.

An excellent measure of whether a “law” is good or bad is to see if it prohibits something that isn’t prohibited elsewhere — especially, right next door.
Life is too short to waste it trying to govern other people. If you’re honest you’ll admit you have enough to keep you busy just controlling – governing — yourself. Even if you have it all worked out and you are perfect, your perfection collapses the moment you try to govern someone besides yourself.
