    1) Yes, I am tough. You are not. You are a hippy wuss.

    2) Yes, I own a truck.

    3) Yes, I own several guns and Uncle Sam lets me play with some his also.

    4) I don't beat pets. But I do beat down commie supporters.

    5) No, I'm not gay, so please take your not so hidden advances elsewhere.

    Now, because you couldn't contol yourself, seenbad is going to have to close this thread. Thanks, dumbass.
