Relax, we have everything under control. As an officer in the Rebel Force you should know you are safe and under steady leadership, until that iron and steel began to ooze out of my pores. That is when I scare my self. When that happens, everyone should be scared.

My family has a history of being patriotic. Grandfather Dusan was a Serbian Patriot that assassinated the Arch Duke Ferdinand, His Brothers were Kings Guards for King Peter, My father and brothers all enlisted for WW II. My father was a dive bomber, Uncle Nick in th OSS, Uncle Tony in the South Pacific Islands. My Uncle Pete in Iran. My Uncle Nick (mother's side) Paratrooper Italy and France. All were highly decorated. There storeis they would tell on those rare days they talked where awful. From my first hand accounts there was no level of courtesy or political correctness in the battle fields.

Growing up a steel mill kid was a huge influence in my life both good and bad. Over the years I have tried to calm down those in my past that call for a tight close quarters rightcross right to settle an issue. There is a simple elegance in that. For the most part, a stern look works and I walk away .Other days, people lack the common sense to walk away. As my blood roils, I swear they see the old ghosts that walk with me as I am not an intimidating guy, but they run from something.

I could whine but no one would listen, and it doesn't beenefit me any at all... so, I'll wince a lil bit and get on with life...

That all sounds oh so familiar.

This is absolutely not PC, but it was very funny to me. I hope it deasn't offend anyone. Are you a Politically Correct, Old School, or a Texan? Here is a little test that will help you decide.

You're walking down a
Deserted street with your wife
And two small children.

Suddenly, a Terrorist with a huge knife
Comes around the corner,
Locks eyes with you,
Screams obscenities,
Raises the knife, and charges at you...

You are carrying a
Kimber 1911 cal. 45 ACP, and you are an expert shot.
You have mere seconds before he reaches you and your family.
What do you do?

THINK CAREFULLY AND
THEN SCROLL DOWN:

PC Answer:
• Well, that's not enough information to answer the question!
• What is a Kimber 1911 cal. 45 ACP?
• Does the man look poor or oppressed?
• Is he really a terrorist? Am I guilty of profiling?
• Have I ever done anything to him that would inspire him to attack?
• Could we run away?
• What does my wife think?
• What about the kids?
• Could I possibly swing the gun like a club and knock the knife out of his hand?
• What does the law say about this situation?
• Does the pistol have appropriate safety built into it?
• Why am I carrying a loaded gun anyway, and what kind of message does this send to society and to my children?
• Is it possible he'd be happy with just killing me?
• Does he definitely want to kill me, or would he be content just to wound me?
• If I were to grab his knees and hold on, could my family get away while he was stabbing me?
• Should I call 9-1-1?
• Why is this street so deserted?
• We need to raise taxes, have paint & weed day.
• Can we make this a happier, healthier street that would discourage such behavior.
• I need to debate this with some friends for a few days and try to come to a consensus.
• This is all so confusing!

Old School Answer:

BANG!


Texan's Answer:

BANG! BANG! BANG! BANG! BANG! BANG! BANG! BANG!
BANG ! BANG! BANG! BANG!


Click..... (Sounds of reloading)


BANG! BANG! BANG! BANG! BANG! BANG!
BANG!
BANG!
BANG!


Click

Daughter: 'Nice grouping, Daddy!' 'Were those the Winchester Silver Tips or Hollow Points?!

Son: 'Can I shoot the next one?!'

Wife: 'You ain't taking that to the Taxidermist!

My buddy sent it to me about a month ago and I am still laughing.

Thanks for the offer, when can you be here... and will the welder fit in the trunk of the Camaro... lol...

Actually, I'll use a mig welder to tack everything up and get it all properly aligned, with Corey's help of course, and then he will weld it all up with a tig machine... I've seen the hammer you Alabama dudes keep wielding... That scares me...
