"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."
George Washington

"Only a virtuous people are capable of freedom. As nations become more corrupt and vicious, they have more need of masters."
Benjamin Franklin

I wonder when the lies will stop and truth begin, even as grim as the truth may be. And then I remember that for 70 years, the reign of terror in Russia called itself "the people's government." We have so far to fall, yet we are falling fast and Hell yawns to receive us.

Uh-huh.............I guess it would give the serfs an unfair advantage.
I seem to recall a similar law being passed around 10 years ago.

Anyhow.....I GOT MINE!   13859

Actually, it was from my 'terp. She gave it to me before she left so she wouldn't have so much weight to carry. I turned in the garbage I was issued.   :tongue2:

Turning in kit. Must be some strange rite performed by the American tribes.  :tongue2:

Though you'd love our body armor. Pretty bog standard overlapping ceramide AB plates in pouches front and back, but there is titanium chain mail quilted between two layers of Kevlar on the sides of the torso. A simple fix you'd think they'd have come up with on their own. You can still lose an arm or a leg, but body shots don't even phase you, apart from the jump and the cursing - that shit gets hot fast when it gets hit and you will take damage, but not bleeding out level damage. It's pretty hot anyway, but it's worth the bit of extra heat and weight.
