The III Percent Mission Statement: Rightful liberty is unobstructed action according to our will
within limits drawn around us by the equal rights of others. ~ Thomas Jefferson
As long as i have the knife, I choose the second.III to III Mike L.
No quarter for those who threaten decency. No mercy to those who poison this one existence we have.I pray, in absolute earnest, that the gods above may give me the strength to do what is necessary to exterminate any malefactor that shall infringe upon these things.People deserve better than a life of dread coupled with anxiety and uncertainty.
I choose the way of the sword. Meekness is for mice.

Kurtz,How do you define "decency" and "poison"? Daniel
Decency to me is basically the golden rule. Do unto others....etc.Poison runs the gamut of any number of miserable things that politicians have done in recent (and not so recent) history, and any number of actions undertaken by sociopaths and/or sadists. Essentially any action that is counter-constructive to the golden rule. (Like jailing a person for a trivial offense, shooting their dog, or skinning political enemies). For a good idea of the type of thing that 'poisons' this existence, read the story that cavmedic68w posted above about a 19 month old toddler getting a flashbang tossed into his crib. That is heinous, even if it was 'just an accident' (as these things always are......).My apologies if my original post came off as cryptic, it certainly wasn't intended that way. I ramble sometimes, and it can come out awfully convoluted.
Cool. Got it - thanks...Daniel
