The Best Comeback Line Ever!

Marine Corps General Reinwald was interviewed on the radio the other day and you'll love his reply to the lady who interviewed him concerning guns and children.

Regardless of how you feel about gun laws you gotta love this!!!!

This is a portion of National Public Radio (NPR) interview between a
female broadcaster and US Marine Corps General Reinwald who was about to sponsor a Boy Scout Troop visiting his military installation.

>FEMALE INTERVIEWER: So, General Reinwald, what things are you going to teach these young boys when they visit your base?

>GENERAL REINWALD: We're going to teach them climbing, canoeing, archery, and shooting.

>FEMALE INTERVIEWER: Shooting! That's a bit irresponsible, isn't it?

>GENERAL REINWALD: I don't see why, they'll be properly supervised on the rifle range.

>FEMALE INTERVIEWER: Don't you admit that this is a terribly dangerous
activity to be teaching children?

>GENERAL REINWALD: I don't see how. We will be teaching them proper rifle discipline before they even touch a firearm.

>FEMALE INTERVIEWER: But you're equipping them to become violent killers.

>GENERAL REINWALD: Well, Ma'am, you're equipped to be a prostitute, but you're not one, are you?

The radio went silent and the interview ended.

You gotta love these Marines!

It's "false" in that the interview never happened, but it's "true" in that it makes a lot of sense.

Gun hatters?

I've never tried wearing one on my head, have you?

If you think it really exemplifies how "gun haters" think or behave, perhaps you can find a link to a real interview in which the interviewer asked questions like the ones in the bogus story.

HE: Would you have sex with me if I gave you 10 million dollars?

SHE: (thinks about it).....well, yes, I guess I'd do it for 10 mil.

HE: Would you do me for 20 bucks?

SHE: What do you think I am, some kind of wh**e?

HE: Well, we've already established that; now we just need to settle on a price.

Chelsea Clinton asks a very big marine, "isn't there anything you're afraid of?"

the marine replies "Osama, Obama, Yo Mama"

First time I had run across it. Sounded good anyway. Sorry bout that.


That story has never aired on NPR and in checking with the Pentagon, we were told they have no record of a "General Reinwald" ever having served in any branch of the armed forces.

I still like it. Happy

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
