I’m dreaming of running for president on the platform, that to prevent Obammunism from taking over our country, that “we have a tank in every garage”.
[FDR’s call for a “chicken in every pot” would be more appropriate for his advisors and our present head of the military, “chickens” and acting like they are on “pot”].
One can dream. An M-48 is nice, an Abrams M-1 is better.
Abrams was a fighter for freedom which is why they named a tank after him, as they did for Gen. Patton and Gen Sherman.
If they named any vehicle after Obama is would be a “Yugo”.
There is a difference, you know.
I’ll take the Abrams myself. I drove one around playing NG for a while. Fun to get up to speed.
The movie Tank is now selling at Big Lots! for $3.
Hi Max, I would vote for you!
For the sake of accuracy, it was not FDR that talked about “a chicken in every pot.” It was actually used by the RNC in Hoover’s campaign, after using it for Harding and Coolidge. The RNC stole it from King Henry IV of France. http://www.americanthinker.com/2012/09/a_chicken_in_every_pot_food_and_presidential_politics.html
But, I like your slogan of a tank in every garage.
If you haven't seen Space Cowboys, I would highly recommend it...
ive seen it he actually wrote a book on poker i had as a kid- poker according to Maverick
If I had one of those, the first thing I would do is drive it over a SmartCar.
James Garner: “Posse Comitatus.”
Sheriff: “Did you just call me a pussy communist?”
great next line shoulda been:
If ever asked should citizens being allowed to own a tank, answer yes. Then explain that only those in the Bill Gates, Donald Trump income range could possibly afford one, and no one should ever worry about billionaires committing street crimes with one. Same for nuclear weapons. Anyone who could afford a nuclear weapon, buying a couple of NFL franchises would be cheaper, would also have the scratch to hire the scientists (A.Q. Khan anybody) to build him one if buying one was not an option.
Upon relfection, it might not have been Jim Garner who said Posse Comitatus. More likely his CO when the sheriff demanded the army go after Garner and his tank.
