    Thought this was fitting with the current state of the union:

    "We must handle ourselves so that no weak power which is behaving itself shall have cause to fear us, and no strong power of any kind shall be able to oppress us or wrong us!"

    Author: Theodore Roosevelt (at a speech given in San Antonio at the Alamo in 1905).

    All good ones. I like any quote from the Duke, the Shootist is probably the best, but its hard to watch knowing that he was suffering and dying during the filming,,,,,,,salute to The Duke :texas:

    John Wayne is my favorite. In the movie Big Jake, Christopher Mitchum and Patrick Wayne are playinig with a semi-auto I believe it is a bergman. The Duke says , while you boys are playing with that fancy pistol in that fancy holster, some old fashioned gentleman with an old fashioned sixgun is gonna blow a hole in you.
