over 4000 posts in one year. I bet you would be grateful for some sunlite or fresh air. Go to the range, blast a few hundred rounds and enjoy the smell of burnt powder, the glimmer of the sun thru a cloud of gunsmoke and the soft shimmering heat off of a slowly cooling rifle barrel. OHHHHH, I am getting a stiffy I better quit. Two weeks ago some phucking 50y/o drunk woman slammed head-on into my 16y/o daughters car at 4 in the afternoon, totaled both cars and gave herself a serious/permanent brain injury. My daughter is stiff and sore and has a few weeks of PT to get straightened out. But she is otherwise fine. Thank you God I spent a Christmas at Basic, a Christmas overseas, A Christmas alone after my son died of cancer, a Christmas eve in a bar with lonely drunks. Things these days are pretty damn nice. I have learned to never say, "how much worse can it get?" because it can get lots worse. You are in the best country in the world, where they keep the best looking women and the coolest guns. AND they keep them next to the fastest cars and motorcycles. I have been to the third world several times. Your worst day is a wet dream for the rest of the world.

......that Colonel Franks made it all the way to 4 stars. When I saw his picture in the paper, I took it to everybody at work, sayin' "You know that 'Col Franks' I keep tellin' stories about? THIS IS HIM! I used to work for this MF!" I was as proud of him as if he were my old man. I'm thankful he's runnin' sh*t, 'cause he always looked out for the guys who served under him.

I am thankful I haven't been laid off. I actually got a promotion and a raise. That is something to be seriously thankful for this year.

Is that because you're a whining, hopeless pessimist? Me, I am grateful to be alive in one of the best times in history to live.

I am thankful for my wife and new daughter, that we have a life together, that my family and friends survived 9-11, and that our nation is stronger now than it was before. That the American people showed what they arre made of through this crisis.

So there is any other way to debate someone who says "I have nothing for which to be thankful" than to argue against their personality? If so, I can't think of it. You're devastatingly pessimistic in every post you make, you take the most incredibly negative view of every situation and you can't see a silver lining without looking for the dark cloud. I don't know you in real life and frankly don't want to, but that is 100% how you come across in your posts.

I am thankful that my nephew is alive and was able to celebrate Thanksgiving with his family today. He missed a curve night before last on a dark country road, flipped his pickup into a creek, was trapped in the upside-down cab of the truck, totally submerged, and managed to kick the door open and swim out. If that isn't something to be thankful for...I don't know what is. Thank you, God!

First and foremost my family, my health and I'm thankful I was born in the greatest nation ever. Imbroglio, look at this way, things can only get better.

Imbroglio, you may not have any womenz, but at least you didn't lose your girlfriend the day before Thanksgiving. I did. My whole day sucked! The only thing I could think of to be thankful for is my X and I are still friends. Christmas is going to be a bitch! I need to find someone quick.

Ok I guess I did find something to be thankful for. I am thankful for not being an obnoxious asshole the likes of tc6969 and hiramranger. In all my years of posting on bulletin boards I HAVE NEVER wished the death of another member.

I am thankful that my wife saw it in her heart to let me surf ar15.com tonight while she deals with a screaming, hungry baby with a soiled diaper.

You guys are COMPLETELY unable to sense sarcasm. Imbroglio is playing you. Pull out yer dusty dictionaries and see what his login name means. Dummies.

That's the problem, here. He never says what he *really* means, and enjoys pulling people's chains... he seems to have all the intellectual honesty of the guy who throws rocks from an overpass into oncoming traffic.

True, he's an interesting critter. But if ya know that about him, then he's pretty harmless. And if he gets your shorts all tied up in a bunch, that would be YOUR fault. Just consider him YET ANOTHER wrinkle of personality that makes up AR15.com. "Let him that is without quirks throw the first Century Garand." (cuz that's all they are good fer [:D] ) And BTW, it is NOT accurate to say he "Never" says what he means. My experience is that, when he gets serious, he is THE most knowlegeable gun expert here, bar NONE.

Yes, but those who get into an imbroglio because Imbroglio ACTS like an imbroglio are the REAL "confused mass." [:D] Speaking of confused masses, I think I just typed one. [BD]
