    I have no clue what you are talking about or why you defend that implied threats of violence that others persist in making

    Your threats are clear and unmistakable made time and time again. You should have far more than a clue since you boldly brag about your prowess with weapons and your eagerness to use them should the revolution come to the Turtle McMansion.

    I guess to the socialist left that tends to outsource all traditional personal responsibilities to the state, the concept of self defense is a fetish.

    So despite the profit jump, you would not increase his pay?

    Tell me where then does all of the profit go that worker 'John' helped create? (ponder that for a moment)

    The only way workers can get a share of profits is if their skill level increases??

    This is exactly why labor can't be treated like a commodity.

    Thanks for helping me make my point.

    Not at all. I have no problem with it.

    I do have to raise an eyebrow when I hear or read the comments from somebody who describes guns like he is having a good time with a Playboy centerfold. The line crosses from a simple appreciation of self defense to just plain weirdness.
