For those who chose to go when most wouldn’t. For those who knew it could cost them everything. For those who believed America to be the shining city on the hill, the last, best hope of Mankind. For those for whom duty, honor and country meant more than life itself. For those who gave the last, full measure of devotion and those who gave all their tomorrows that we might have today, for them we pray this day, gracious and merciful Father. Give them the peace that passeth all understanding, and may there always be Americans like them. –Mike McDaniel, Stately McDaniel Manor
Richard Ryan had 500 feet of det cord to “get rid of.” Sounds like a good problem to have.
I’m sure some of our more Libertarian-minded friends will have something to say about the “Click-it or Ticket” campaign.
Dimitrios Karras, the CEO of Ares Armor, wrote a letter for this Memorial Day, addressing the sacrifices made in the past, and the recent actions of our government. It’s a remembrance, yes, but it’s a call to action. “What hubris is it on our part to thank a veteran for their service while we sit by and watch the very thing that they fought for be trampled and trivialized?” Read the whole letter here.
RF gave this a full post a few days back, but in case you missed it, Ryan took out an iMac with a Lahti 20mm anti-tank rifle. This is the first time I’d heard someone mention the ammo cost. $40-60/round is no joke.
