Gun folk always like to tell you how “well trained ” and “responsible ” they are.
If we remember those who’ve served to protect our way of life, we might not repeat the mistakes that compel us to kill.
If you’ve got nothing else to do, read this.
I posted this picture several years ago but today is an important day to remember it. The man picture above was Pat Tillman, today marks ten years since his unfortunate passing. Pat Tillman was a man that played for the Arizona Cardinals in the NFL and stepped away from an extremely lucrative contract in order to become an Army Ranger and assist in Afghanistan. Among the many things that Pat was known for was his open and outspoken Atheism. Sadly this man’s life was cut short in Afghanistan and the official reason was stated to be “friendly fire”. He was killed well not engaged with the enemy at all but “accidentally”, as the story goes, by one of his own. Of course this story has sparked many questions and also spawned many conspiracy theories, some being more outlandish than the others, but one that has often come up is that it may have been due to his outspoken non-belief. This hero, this warrior, walked away from a life most of us could never dream of to bravely serve when he felt he was called to do so and in the end he may have paid the ultimate price not in battle, but simply because of who he really was. Gone but not forgotten - Pat Tillman 11/6/76 - 4/22/04
Mitt Romney used school and religion to avoid a war HE SUPPORTED!
Donald Trump used school (Helps to be rich to avoid serving)
Dick Cheney had 5 deferments when 2 was considered a lot and the last one looked like he procreated to avoid the war…WOW
Ted Nugent shit and pissed in his pants. He also called the military “imbeciles”.
Rush Limbaugh had a pimple on his ass.
Bill O’Reilly: School.
Meanwhile so called “America haters” like John Kerry, Oliver Stone and Al Gore did ENLIST. Gore in fact did it cause he didnt want some one of lesser means to go in his place. In other words being that he was the son of a senator, a fortunate son, he could have gotten out of serving.
Thats how we roll.
I really hate this. I’d turn the gun on myself before choosing one of my children over the other.
If you shot yourself the intruders would just kill the rest of your family, since you were explicitly supposed to shoot one of your sons.
They might. They might not. The gun handed to the mom, in this scenario, is empty. I would sacrifice myself in an instant if I thought it might save my children.
Weren’t you paying attention to the dudes in masks? It won’t save your children. The only thing that can save one child is the death of the other. The only purpose that shooting yourself serves is a cowardly cop-out so that you won’t have to see your family die.
oh, yes. I’ve been paying attention. I’ve seen this about 8 times on my dash today. And, I’ll admit to being a coward anyday, but I’ll never choose one of my children over the other.
Then I guess both your children will die.
sonuvabitch stupid enough to give me a gun?
I’m gonna shoot them (assuming they gave me a loaded gun). I might die, after they shoot me back.
Yeah you really DO SUCK as a “human being”
