Those guys deserved to be recognized. Especially the guy who shot bin laden. He is a hero. They are all heroes.
I would like to see the bin laden pix.

Why did bin laden use his wife as a shield? Was he shy?

If bin laden's kids have his DNA, does that mean they will be maniac's too?

Should we put them in reform school before they start trouble?

People! Get some manners!

I really hope I can find a special gun today. Something dainty, like me.

Wait, does Hello Kitty make a gun? Now that would be cute. I will look for that. Even the bullets would have Kitty's face on it. After I shoot someone and they go to the hospital to have the bullets taken out of them - the doctor will say WTH, when he sees how cute the bullets are. Hello Kitty will kick some ass!

Anyway...That's on my agenda for today.

What you doing?

After i get the Hello Kitty gun, do I need to practice? You know, gun range? That could be boring. Maybe I will be so bloody talented, I won't have to practice. I could practice on a human. See, if someone makes me a little angry, I could practice on them. How cool would that be?

How many guns should I buy?

Do I need a knife?

Grenade?

Where do they sell Drones? That could come in handy.

Who makes the Drone?

Goodness gracious me!

Anyone would think that the premise of the argument is proved by the applause in congress today.

It sounded very convincing too.

He is a damn good skeet shooter. Hits 'em before they get airbourne. LOL>

America voted for him.
He will change the Republicans.
Him and Rupert.

I have seen this before.
All parties will be the same.

To me, there's little difference between the two parties now.

Our Fuhrer won with less than 1% of the popular vote even when there were voting districts with a 114% turnout.:-) He's not all that popular.

It seems to be going through another incarnation.

So far it has gone from talking about guns to talking about talking about guns to talking about talking about talking about guns.

Each incarnation is elevated to cult status and fiercely defended by its respective followers. What will the next incarnation be?
