    Maybe I misunderstood, but apparently the person being quoted, Wolf, is a TP darling and also some offhand relative of Obama's.

    I'm pulling for him. Roberts has got to go.

    I have. Granted, most first responder types know to keep "inside" humor among their own circle, and that posting such things on FB for outsiders to see is a bad idea, as most won't understand and will think it is evidence of derangement.

    I'll admit I'm not nearly the smartest guy on the block when it comes to guns, but how is it possible to "decapitate a man by gunfire"?

    Gotcha.
    Wouldn't be the first time crap like this in politics.

    Remember Todd Aikin? Hand picked as an opponent by Claire McCaskill, supported with campaign contributions from her campaign. Of course, the media never reported any of that, and unfairly hung the entire Republican party with it.

    The good radiologist obviously shouldn't have gone and done that, but I've also heard that doctors crack the worst doctor jokes during the middle surgeries. Probably a good thing the patient is out during the procedure.

    That kind of comment might make sense if you're admiring the efficiency of your machine gun after a fierce battle and are currently high on 12 different kinds of natural chemicals your brain released and are now storming through your blood, but on a facebook wall it makes much less sense.

    Also I don't think this guy has been through so much as to see anything so traumatic that its left him with a permanent change to how he views bodily trauma, I mean he works as a radiologist and while X-Rays can depict some graphic stuff I don't think they'd have the same mental impact as seeing the same injury in the flesh.

    Large caliber rounds, a .50 cal will blow your arm completely off, one to the head will leave you a headless corpse, and if you happen to take a few in your stomach area it can literally blast you in half.

    Unless of course you are in the X-ray room with the patient taking the X-rays. Then it's right there in front of you, and you even have to manipulate the mangled limb to the correct position to get the correct view in the X-ray.

    I'd have to agree that this sort of inner circle humor should remain in the inner circle amongst those who understand and have similar frame of reference.

    So this is basically someone killed by the government and/or a very rare occurrence.
