Marine Corps General Reinwald was interviewed on the radio the other day and you have to read his reply to a reporter who interviewed him concerning guns and children. Regardless of how you feel about gun laws you gotta love this!!!! This is one of the best comeback lines of all time. It is a portion of a National Public Radio (NPR) interview between a female broadcaster and US Marine Corps General Reinwald who was about to sponsor a Boy Scout Troop visiting his military installation. ====================================================== FEMALE INTERVIEWER: So, General Reinwald, what things are you going to teach these young boys when they visit your base? GENERAL REINWALD: We're going to teach them climbing, canoeing, archery, and shooting. FEMALE INTERVIEWER: Shooting! That's a bit irresponsible, isn't it? GENERAL REINWALD: I don't see why, they'll be properly supervised on the rifle range. FEMALE INTERVIEWER: Don't you admit that this is a terribly dangerous activity to be teaching children? GENERAL REINWALD: I don't see how. We will be teaching them proper rifle discipline before they even touch a firearm. FEMALE INTERVIEWER: But you're equipping them to become violent killers. GENERAL REINWALD: Well, you're equipped to be a prostitute, but you're not one, are you? The radio went silent and the interview ended. All over America, people were thinking....

I'll let someone else give him the news, but can we tack something up to ward off this mistaken posting every month? [}:)]

Hey, we were all newbies once- let's cut the guy/gal some slack. Too bad the story isn't true, though. :^)

Can you imagine what would happen if it was true? Barbara Boxer, Hillary!, and Fineswine would not let up until General Reinwald was buried in an unmarked grave. The Marine Corp would be disbanded as being innately hostile to women. The Marines would institute a de-naziing like sensitivity training program, and women would occupy 52% of each paygrade from E1 to 0-8.
