    Re: If you were the president of the United States...

    I would nuke everyone that gave a serious answer to this question, then I would build a huge boat, get a pirate hat made for me, and sail the seven seas while calling everyone "scurvy dogs".
    So follow me into the desert
    As desperate as you are
    Where the moon is glued to a picture of heaven
    And all the little pigs have God

    Perfect for drilling holes in a rock face to allow the insertion of blasting charges.

    But the taxes might be prohibitive.

    Edit: Perhaps if I just bought the RPG rounds, placed them against the rock face with disposable holders, and fired them in place?

    But that takes half the fun out of it.

    Immediately resign.

    That reminds me. I would have my face added to Mt. Rushmore, except I would have them make me look a lot like Hugh Jackman.

    I would also make 300 the official movie of the United States.

    1) Spending money on more guns than you need is negative as it prevents you from spending money on organic food and self-help books

    2) The notion that we should all be well-armed in case we need to overthrow the Government some day is no longer valid as a single AC-130 gunship could take out a thousand Rambo-wannabes at a gun show. No one is going to overthrow the government, so let's get people spending money things that only last 3-5 years like computers and Sharper Image junk.

    we ought to tax the posts of those who want to steal the wealth of others
    If I had a nickle for every moronic talking point I've heard from you...

    what is a small dick compensation weapon

    I want to hear your obvious expertise on this subject. Having been a world class competitive shooter, counsel for everything from a sheriff's department to a Title II manufacturer (machine guns) I figured I knew about all there is to know about small arms but along you come and mention a type of gun I have never heard of
    I thought you were a scratch golfer and Yale graduate.

    Isn't the internet great?! You can be anything you want!

    is it some sort of strap on weapon?
    It's something you buy to mentally compensate for shortcomings.

    Damnit, I keep intending to see that movie, but never seem to get around to it.
