"The government trusted me with a M-48 tank and assorted small arms when it claimed to have need of my services.

It trusts common Americans with all kinds of arms when it wants them to go kill foreigners somewhere — usually for the financial benefit of some corporations.
But when the men and women take off their uniforms and return to their homes and assume responsibility for their own and their families’ safety, suddenly the politicians don’t trust them to own a gun. This is pure elitism. … Gun control is not about guns or crime. It is about an elite that fears and despises the common people.“
-- Charley Reese (1937-2013) American syndicated columnist Orlando Sentinel, March 31, 1994.

Your Say

Trust your own American soldier; perhaps leave it to others to do?

"Soldier boy, soldier man,
do you ever ask,
'What's the reason I am here,
and what is it my task?'

Soldier boy, soldier man,
return home safe and sound.
Know wherever you now walk
you make it holy ground.

Soldier boy, soldier man,
as you in the distance fade,
in later years have no doubt
that a better world you made.

Soldier boy, soldier man,
soldier, soldier, soldier on.
Soldier boy, soldier man, Soldier American.

RIP Mr. Reese. No disrespect intended.

The answer is simple: let the guys have M-48 tanks and assorted small arms and they won't even have to go overseas to kill foreigners.

DC knows their antics haven't curried any favor with the true Americans. That causes many changes of shorts daily.
