Sometimes in life you have to stand your ground. It's a hard lesson to learn and even most adults don't get it, but in the end only I can be responsible for my life. If faced with any type of adversity, only I can overcome it. Waiting for someone else to take responsibility is a long fruitless wait.
Sounds like a lot of butt kicking going to be happening. This Jarhead will mention a few kind words of correction due to the fact that I'm armed and getting to old for a good romp. I agree a good whooping is what is needed starting at a young age.

Great set of rules, couldn't agree more. (Although the Coast Guard USED to be DOT. (Except in time of war. )) (Just kidding!)

That makes me want to ask if you were in the Military? (If not, refer to rule #4 above) The quote below is the oath I took, the highlighting is mine.
I, (NAME), do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; and that I will obey the orders of the President of the United States and the orders of the officers appointed over me, according to regulations and the Uniform Code of Military Justice. So help me God.

atctimmy, I have to disagree on one point you wrote, and it may just be how I interpreted it. Personnel in the military also have their vote for the elected officials. I hope that I just misunderstood your posting. Military personnel should use their vote powers too, I know I vote!
my apologies if I read your post wrong.
"Without fear there can be no Courage!"
Great advice for a CCW forum. Maybe all the members can get their permits revoked for "kicking some ass".
A veteran, whether active duty, retired, national guard or reserve is someone who, at one point in his/her life, wrote a blank check made payable
to "The United States of America" for an amount of "up to and including my life." Author unknown

Re USCG. Never heard the term "Puddle Jumpers" ? Coasties or Hoolligan's Navy or Shallow Water Sailors yes. Good post.
