He actually gave 2 Hooahs. 1 after the passage you indicated and another one which I seem to recall.

It may be from a joke website, but it is an extremely accurate description of the usage of Hooah.

In case you missed this yesterday --Lt. Gen. Russell Honore has increased the options available to conservatives when they respond to loaded questions.

Click on the audio if you get the chance :-)

The local police are in charge of law enforcement decisions. The military is not there to make decisions about people and their guns.

For what it's worth, I think a law abiding citizen who had a right to a gun before a hurricane still has the same right after a hurricane. How to implement that is another matter. The system had broken down in just about every way, when rescue boats and helicopters or when firemen and police are SHOT AT by thugs in the aftermath of a hurricane.

The overwhelmed and broken down law enforcement then resorted to a blanket decision that people could not go around with guns in NO. The military is there to execute disaster relief in their prescribed role of support to local Government during a disaster that overwhelmed the locals. General Honore is not some kind of monster or would be tyrannical dictator whose goal is to remove everybody's lawful gun.

The situation is the pits.

If I were a stranded citizen in NO, and people around me had been looting, raping and shooting, I would be very scared to be thrown in with other citizens who were carrying guns, not knowing if they were good guys or bad in that extreme moment.

If I were one of the citizens who had a gun to protect myself from the bad guys, and the government (local decision) took it away from me, I would be very upset about that.

It is a no win, either way it cuts.

In NO everything just broke down. And I mean everything, including how to treat legitimate gun owners. Not a surprise, just understandably troubling.

LOL! I would think that Scott would already pick up on the phrase. The problem that Scott has is that he is a good person with an overdeveloped sense of guilt. The nuns must have been really strict in his school. :D

I say this as I have the same issue- I look guilty even when I am not. LOL!

I think we need a special thread entitled GENERAL HONORE containing cool quotes from him. I just love this guy.

See posts #12 and #15.

He didn't say "over" unless you are listening to something different than I have.

He said, "You are stuck on stupid. Hooah."


See above if you don't believe me. Others heard the good General say "Hooah" twice, as emphasis to what he had said.

txrangerette said: "In NO everything just broke down. And I mean everything, including how to treat legitimate gun owners. "

I think that we can agree, for example, that the NO evacuation plan broke down, given that the school buses sat unused in a flooded parking lot. That was not the plan.

However, we disagree about the plan regarding disarming the evacuees. The plan was always to require that people be disarmed in order to be eligible for government evacuation.

Consider the following scenario: The evacuation buses will be used as per the NO plan. However, even numbered buses will be labelled with a large, red circle with a picture of a gun with a slash through it. Evacuees who wish to have everyone disarmed may board such buses and take comfort that only the government and those who will not obey the rules will be armed.

The odd numbered buses will be labelled with a large, green sign with a picture of a gun on it. Evacuees will be permitted to bring their firearms and will be evacuated to a place where all may be armed.

Now the critical question. Which bus will you board? And will you be armed?

You are correct. The "Over" is my invention. When I have seen Honore remotely interviewed he often uses the "Over" comm protocol. It is just another aspect of that makes him something very special.

BTW: I am hearing quote on Fox News right now. LOL

Male reporter: General, a little bit more about why that's happening this time, though, and did not have that last time...

Honore: You are stuck on stupid. I'm not going to answer that question. We are going to deal with Rita. This is public information that people are depending on the government to put out. This is the way we've got to do it. So please. I apologize to you, but let's talk about the future. Rita is happening. And right now, we need to get good, clean information out to the people that they can use. And we can have a conversation on the side about the past, in a couple of months.

You gotta read it all...this General's a riot!

Don't be insulting. I was using the "daddy" term in that it's time someone law down the law and "git r done" withouth the whiney, "mommy" aspects of most pinhead politicians.
