    Since Tomahawk breached the idea on the USMC museum thread I think we should explore it. I'm certainly up for it, not sure what we should do but a little comradery never hurt a Marine. What say you?

    I might like a little get-together.

    Swap funny sea-stories, and so forth.
    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.

    Visiting the museum would be cool with me, but then it would have to be a non OC or CC event unfortunately. I'm willing to take a day off to do it. Just swapping sea stories and making toasts to the Continental Marines and so on would be fun.

    I'm glad you brought it up. I didn't even think to check.

    Here is the calendar of events for November from their website. Fortunately it doesn't look too full.
