Just caught up on a great thread. Wanted to pass on one other bit from Col. Cooper.

Quote:
“One bleeding-heart type asked me in a recent interview if I did not agree that ‘violence begets violence.’ I told him that it is my earnest endeavor to see that it does. I would like very much to ensure–and in some cases I have–that any man who offers violence to his fellow citizen begets a whole lot more in return than he can enjoy.”

This thread reminds me of a quote I read long ago, found at the beginning of the book "Black Hawk Down".

By Cormac McCarthy — 'War was always here. Before man was, war waited for him. The ultimate trade awaiting its ultimate practitioner.'

And so, as I said to my beloved recently after reading from a newspaper article:


"... the Yemen refugee was caught between the government forces and the rebels...".


I apparently made an audible snort of derision, because she said "what was that for?"


And I read the quote.


And she said "so what would you have told him?"


And I said "Grab a rifle, you son of a bitch, and pick a side."

That's funny, I bought a shit-knocker Subaru a few months ago with one of those that I havn't taken off. It's funny that I ride around with it on and my politics are about 15 degrees to the right of DD0311.

If it is one of these, you are good.

Don’t let him kid you. He has an Obama and Hillary bumper sticker on there also!

There needs to be a better IFF system for the coming purge. A Subaru is just begging for fratricide incidents.

Hell, the 2019 Crosstrek is going for ~$24,000; pretty easy to see why they're so popular. I could buy two of 'em brand new for less than the 2019 Tahoe my wife wants.

I would love a Tahoe! But I will say that I had a Subaru back in the early days and I loved the damn thing. But the shit-libs ruined that for me, so oh well.

Wife is on her second Subaru and I love the damn thing! She chose the second one of an Audi.

2018 Tahoes have some issues. I’m doubtful the transmission in mine makes 10K. Full disclouse, I drive the shit out of it but it had issues within the first few hundred miles.

Somebody has to be able to infiltrate. I have a Che shirt and a pair of birkenstocks to complete the ruse.

I kind of like those Crosstreks. See a lot of them in CO. Wonder about roominess inside though

It's a ruse, when I roll out of the Lesbo Mobile and go braveheart people will be surprised.

We're kind of off topic though.

Back on the original topic, my mother is one to say "violence never solves anything". I once told her she was correct, if people know you're capable of extreme violence, usually just the threat of violence will do it.

Violence or perception of violence. That is why a “show of force” with a pair of F-15’s worked so good. The Iraqi’s (insert any ass hat here) knew the next pass might be more than just afterburners.
