    Not an OC thread, nor CC since in Texas, but couldn't help passing this on re: civilian would be robber w knife. Pushed the marine out of line at Cstore counter to rob employee.[emoji2]

    Love the full video - at the end the other guy gives him a 'thumbs-up'. Semper Fi marines!

    No Marine would ever care whether the coffee was cold, warm, or indifferent. We're used to slogging through cold rain, discomfort, and pain. Who gives a rip if the coffee ain't hot? Its coffee, ain't it?

    I'll make you an offer: I will argue and fight for all of your rights, if you will do the same for me. That is the only way freedom can work. We have to respect all rights, all the time--and strive to win the rights of the other guy as much as for ourselves.

    If I am equal to another, how can I legitimately govern him without his express individual consent?

    There is no human being on earth I hate so much I would actually vote to inflict government upon him.

    In many states, defense of anyone facing a deadly threat (knife) is considered "self-defense" or the equivalent.

    RIGHTS don't exist without RESPONSIBILITY!
    If one is not willing to stand for his rights, he doesn't have any Rights.
    I will strive to stand for the rights of ANY person, even those folks with whom I disagree!
    As said by SVG--- "I am not anti-COP, I am PRO-Citizen" and I'll add, PRO-Constitution.
    If the above makes me a RADICAL or EXTREME--- So be it!

    This is Truth!!

    I do not like someone who commits a crime of violence right in front of me. I find it..........offensive.
