small brush shouldn't fuck with big timber

Death's Door, the view from the Spanish announcers table: the truth hurts

the truth hurts


Note this is an exact replication of National Public Radio interview between a female broadcaster and US Army General Reinwald, who was about to sponsor a Boy Scout Troop visiting his military installation.

FEMALE INTERVIEWER: So, General Reinwald, what things are you going to teach these young boys when they visit your post?

GENERAL REINWALD: We're going to teach them climbing, canoeing, archery, and shooting.

FEMALE INTERVIEWER: Shooting! That's a bit irresponsible, isn't it?

GENERAL REINWALD: I don't see why, they'll be properly supervised on the rifle range.

FEMALE INTERVIEWER: Don't you admit that this is a terribly dangerous activity to be teaching children?

GENERAL REINWALD: I don't see how. We will be teaching them proper rifle discipline before they even touch a firearm.

FEMALE INTERVIEWER: But you're equipping them to become violent killers !

GENERAL REINWALD: Well, you're equipped to be a prostitute, but you're not one ... are you?

I'm pretty sure that PETA kills more animals than... well, just about anyone else.

I've been around firearms my entire life, as well as long violent video games, "Satanic" music, and the same movies as everyone else. I've never turned violent.

Some people are just fucking insane.

Quite honestly in a country that makes it "the woman's fault" that she got raped, I wouldn't be the least bit surprised if it WAS true. We are a violent society; even our national anthem is all about war..not the beautiful country the war won.

Teaching children how to use firearms is a waste of time and government money. It may not MAKE you violent, but it certainly won't help someone who's already got that in them. And I listened, and still listen, to all that satanic music the PMRC pitched a fit over, and watched all the Looney Tunes cartoons that are now brutally edited to get out the 'violence'.. and I'm not a psychotic killer. But on the other hand, I wasn't taught to take up firearms and kill things. So all the people who think it's just fine to have kids learn that it's all right to go out and kill.. when they show up at your door, or outside your car, or beside you on the freeway: remember what a good idea you thought it was for them to learn how to take a rifle and use it.

Guns are tools and nothing more!

You can use them just like any other tool....you can use them properly or not.
You can use them for good or for ill.

You can take pleasure in using them or use them reluctantly and only when needed.
You can take pride in your skill with them or be a dangerous ass and cause damage and harm with them.

Teaching children to be afraid of guns and to try to hide from their existence makes no more sense than
keeping chain saws or even cars from them. It's simply hysterical over reaction to imagined risk.

The only way to deal with ignorance is education and keeping kids ignorant of tools and their use makes no sense at all.

Not teaching children to use firearms does not equate to teaching children to fear them. I was never taught how to use them and certainly I don't fear them. What I fear is that in a culture that already has a high percentage of youth violence, gang killings by kids as young as 13, and school shootings by children.. that we would somehow think that teaching more children to 'use these tools' would be a positive thing.

That's like teaching children to use drugs and saying that it'll reduce the drug problem, or giving them alcohol to prevent future alcoholism (which, by the way, is rising in teenagers and children).

It's piss poor logic and a piss poor way to spend our tax dollars.

A chain saw is a tool and there was a man in Connecticut who put his wife through a Toro chipper-shredder, but obviously these things aren't on a par with shotguns, rifles, handguns, and automatic weapons.

Ask any mother whose kid was killed by one. Ask a kid who's paralyzed from the neck down due to a gunshot wound. Ask the students of Columbine. Do we really, truly need to encourage our kids to use deadly weapons? Aren't they drinking and doing enough drugs?

It's one thing if an adult wants to learn to use firearms, and it's one thing if a child grows up in a hunting family and learns from his parents. It's a completely different thing to have a military officer run a summer camp teaching kids to do such things.

Hitler did that, too, with the Hitler Youth. Is the military that hard up for recruits that they're going to go after the kids?

The whole thing is just pathetic, and a fine example of how actually twisted our culture has become.
