" They " ....are right to be worried about pressure cookers exploding .
My great great (great?) uncle (or perhaps grandfather) was none other than General Jethro Exum Sumner, of North Carolina militia and Revolutionary War fame. I suspect its where I get my patriotic bent, Gen'l Sumner was at Valley Forge during the Terrible Winter (as a Colonel). I wonder what he and those of his stripe would think of the present day situation?

NO SLEEP FOR THE EVIL..Yank lll
Or as my mother would say, no rest for the wicked.
well up here in RI, I sure feel alone. I just keep repeating to myself what Mad Dog Shriver said," I got them right where I want them, surrounded from the inside."
Better move South!:)"No one else could engage the machinegun that trapped Shriver's men -- it was up to Mad Dog. Skittish Yards looked to Shriver and his half-grin restored a sense of confidence. Then they were on their feet, charging -- Shriver was his old self, running to the sound of guns, a True Believer Yard on either side, all of them dashing through the flying bullets, into the treeline, into the very guts of Mad Dog's great nemesis, COSVN. And Mad Dog Shriver was never seen again."
I thought Chesty Puller said that when he was cut off at the Chosin?"We're surrounded. That simplifies the problem."- Attributed to Lewis B. "Chesty" Puller, USMC(I have found three versions of this one)The quotes may not be Chesty Pullers,but may instead have been said by General O.P.Smith http://www.military-quotes.com/chesty-puller.htmThere are some other great ones, "This country will never survive if we stay as soft as we are now."
"This country will never survive if we stay as soft as we are now."Thanks and ain't that the truth.
Hello cousin! We're related via General Jethro Sumner's great great grandfather. I think he would be wondering when the hell the shooting is going to start....
