"Of all the dispositions and habits which lead to political prosperity, religion and morality are indispensable supports. In vain would that man claim tribute to patriotism who should labor to subvert these great pillars of human happiness -- these firmest props of the duties of men and citizens. . . . reason and experience both forbid us to expect that national morality can prevail in exclusion of religious principles."

I dunno....I think Sitting Bull himself would have really appreciated the ability to hunt buffalo from the air.....especially with a .30 caliber chain gun and a spread of Hellfire missiles.  Seems to me we're honoring an ancient native American tradition.....

And this is all being orchestrated by a very small cadre of malcontents who would complain if you hung them with new rope, who purport to speak for all of their very narrow special interest group.

This was essentially true of the Nazis, too.

Americans. Always finding something to be offended by.

We had to stop stamping our returned defective munitions US because someone got a hair up their ass about it once.
