An Important Point To Make, Don’t Try To Be Subtle Or Clever!

From Piers Morgan’s last appearance in CNN: As Sir Winston Churchill said: “If you have an important point to make, don’t try to be subtle or clever. Use a pile driver. Hit the point once. Then come back and hit it again. Then hit it a third time — a tremendous whack.” And I guess [...]

Unarmed Civilian Takes Sailor’s Gun and Kills:

Hey, you John Wayne wannabes! An armed sailor…a professional fighting man…trained for war and totally familiar with the use of weapons…was on sentry duty when he was disarmed by a civilian who then used the gun to kill another sailor.
