Today's Larwyn's Linx sponsored by: January 19th is Gun Appreciation Day

QOTD: "The importance of this article will scarcely be doubted by any persons, who have duly reflected upon the subject. The militia is the natural defence of a free country against sudden foreign invasions, domestic insurrections, and domestic usurpations of power by rulers. It is against sound policy for a free people to keep up large military establishments and standing armies in time of peace, both from the enormous expenses, with which they are attended, and the facile means, which they afford to ambitious and unprincipled rulers, to subvert the government, or trample upon the rights of the people. The right of the citizens to keep and bear arms has justly been considered, as the palladium of the liberties of a republic; since it offers a strong moral check against the usurpation and arbitrary power of rulers; and will generally, even if these are successful in the first instance, enable the people to resist and triumph over them." --Supreme Court Justice Joseph Story

"Negative links." Yesterday we had some classic ones from Business Insider and the immortal Ezra Klein.

Today's "negative link" dishonorable mention goes to The Maddow Blog:

"On deficit reduction, U.S. is nearly finished"

Key quote: "Of course, there is no debt crisis right now."

In reality, we have a $16 trillion deficit--the largest in the history of the world. We can never repay that. However, the Rachel Maddow crowd continues to insist that it's nothing at all.

Today's negative link contains the obligatory insane quote from Paul Krugman: "As Paul Krugman explained, '[T]he larger message here is surely that for the next decade, the debt outlook actually doesn't look all that bad.'"

The Maddow Blog--my pick for today's negative link, signifying the dumbest stuff on the Internet.
