The Polish Worth More Than The Blade.

As many of you know, my wife received a UPS box from some fly-by-night charity who followed up her offering with two folders. I liked the black one, it was assisted opening. But the thumb stud model (which is even heavier than lead) had a really clumsy bevel and it took me forever to salvage it.

Oddly, it got very sharp. Now my confusion is worthy. This place had to be a cover for some cloistered Muslim Temple for explosive mischief, or a prison ministry bilking old veterans and spinster women.

I forget the author, but he said something like, "When an real enemy comes, he will arrive wrapped in an American flag."

So, Achmed, whoever you are. Welcome to the Free Market Economy. Your nine dollar knife is now worth 100 bucks.

America's greatest threat is not those who would come to take away our freedom but those standing in front of the flag who would give it away.
I'm thinking Hillary Clinton, Chuck Schumer, Nancy Pelosi, Barack and Michael Obama........ and add all the other wacko leftist liberal's that you want.

Agreed. As the commies said 100 years ago: "we can't beat America from without. We will have to beat them from within".

Abraham Lincoln said something like that also.
