This is a discussion on Manly Man Dinner, Who Do You Invite As Guests? within the Off Topic & Humor Discussion forums, part of the The Back Porch category; Thomas Jefferson; John Adams; and My father...
John Adams; and
"He went on two legs, wore clothes and was a human being, but nevertheless he was in reality a wolf of the Steppes. He had learned a good deal . . . and was a fairly clever fellow. What he had not learned, however, was this: to find contentment in himself and his own life. The cause of this apparently was that at the bottom of his heart he knew all the time (or thought he knew) that he was in reality not a man, but a wolf of the Steppes."
Margret Thatcher...more of a man than any three current politicians I can think of.
Sir Colin Campbell (my great great...uncle who commanded the Highlanders against the Russians during the Crimean War)
Frederick der Grosse with a German or French translator
"Was there no end to the conspiracy of irrational prejudice against Red Ryder and his peacemaker?"
Revolvers, “more elegant weapons for a more civilized age.”
OK a little clarification, the three I have chosen are for the purpose of discussing current events to compare our current state of affairs with the opinions of:
1. One of our Founding Fathers, not to mention he was an interesting character: Ben Franklin.
2. A great patriot and military genius who, was driven to rebel from our republic: Robert E Lee.
3. A conscientious objector to war who became a war hero: Sgt Alvin York.

"To believe that social reforms can eradicate evil altogether is to forget that evil is a protean creature, forever assuming a new shape when deprived of an old one." - SAT
Never argue with an idiot - they'll bring you down to their level then beat you with experience.
Will you all discuss with Theodore the many ways to show your manhood and dodge the draft? Real men like my father and uncles sucked it up. I guess it takes a real manly man to dodge the draft.
”A free people ought not only to be armed and disciplined, but they should have sufficient arms and ammunition to maintain a status of independence from any who might attempt to abuse them..."
if you want to meet mas, he'll probably be at the IDPA this Sat in JAX
Ted Nugent is a given choice. He is a very educated and well rounded man, overall.
Ronald Reagan....he stared the Russkies in the eye, and kept the wolves at bay during the height of the Cold War.
Tom Selleck...also very educated, a big gun advocate and has a killer 'stache and was Magnum PI and Quigley Down Under.
Charlton Heston was very close on this list just so i could hear him say "From my cold dead hands..." LOL
Friends don't let friends be MALL NINJAS.
I am just as nice as anyone lets me be and can be just as mean as anyone makes me. - Quoted from Terryger, New member to our forum.
It is pardonable to be defeated but never surprised.
2 Ruger alaskan .454s
Robert E. Lee
Bob Munden (He'll keep things from getting too heavy)
'Clinging to my guns and religion
Babe Ruth-drank, smoked and womanized like no other
Michael Jackson-would give Carlin a reason to make us laugh all night
There's nothing like a funeral to make you feel alive
1) My late father who retired in 2000 after forty two years at C.I.A. and passed away before finishing his book.
2) Major L.T. Steele (active duty United States Army)
3) Lt Col. K. Napier (active duty United State Army)
The cigars would be Bolivars and instead of brandy it would most likely be Bourbon if there was any to be found.
Infowars- Proving David Hannum right on a daily basis
Lt. Michael P. Murphy- Medal of Honor winner/Navy SEAL officer killed in Operation Red Wing. Read a great book about him, he was the kind of person we should all strive to be.
George Washington- Self Explanatory
Anthony Bourdain- He is such an opinionated, arrogant guy that I think he would add a lot to the night. I love his show even though we really couldnt be more different. Hate to sound like a copycat but he would be great.
