    Dang, I fall into it every time lol.
    If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude than the animated contest of freedom, go from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains sit lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen.

    Sound advice ... just make sure you can run faster than your "hiking buddy", that's all that matters. NEVER hike with a sprinter or track star.

    Asked by a CNN reporter "What do you feel when you shoot a terrorist"?, the Marine sniper simply shrugged & replied "recoil".

    Now more than ever, we are at war on our home soil ... WAKE UP & arm our troops when they are on home soil!

    If you get into camp early, just smear peanut butter on the trees around the other campsites. Early warning system.

    This technique will work for the inevitable Zombie Apocalypse as well.

    I was all ready to tell you about some patients I have seen shot with .22 that the bullet bounced off the skull and others that when it got into the skull just bounced back and forth causing the brain to be torn up like cole slaw. Then I saw the joke. Never mind.

    Not a fan of Walking Dead, but didn't someone do that on one of the episodes?
    Turn the election's in 2014 to a "2A Revolution". It will serve as a 1994 refresher not to "infringe" on our Second Amendment. We know who they are now.........SEND 'EM HOME. Our success in this will be proportional to how hard we work to make it happen.

    That was well done. The punch line was perfect.
