    examiner.com - America waits for the candidates to “go to guns”

    http://www.examiner.com/article/amer...-to-go-to-guns

    SNIP

    Everybody remembers that Top Gun (see original movie trailer here) colloquy about air-to-air combat tactics between student fighter pilot “Maverick” played by Tom Cruise and instructor “Charlie” played by Kelly McGilles:

    Charlie: A rolling reversal would look well in that situation.
    Maverick: If I reversed in a hard cross I could immediately go to guns on him.
    Charlie: Yeah, but at that speed it’s too fast. It’s a little bit too aggressive.
    Maverick: Too aggressive, yeah I guess when I see something I go right after it.

    But so far Maverick’s “going to guns” tactic appears too aggressive for both moderators and candidates at the Presidential and Vice-Presidential debates.

    Americans support the right to bear arms, including in public places, by overwhelming bi-partisan margins.

    I just read the article you have on the front page similar to this. I'm almost never there.

    I'm sorry, but would a moderator please go through and delete all these damned stickys? This one only has one reply - from last year!

    Half of these danged things only have a few replies, and more from a very long time ago, and almost all are completely uninteresting, unimportant, and furthermore, are a waste of time to have to scroll through every time one wants to see the new topics.


    Only make a sticky if it's life-altering. Say, if the US government nukes Middle America.

    So, please. Delete all this junk.
