    Liberal democrats want to ban firearms, smoking, McDonalds, and all trans fats. I guess the next ban will be against machetes and the folks in south florida will have to find another way to harevest sugar cane.

    Fence Straddler what are doing up so early :). Being up them hours you might run into someone with a machete. God Bless you at 4 + in the morning I am rolling over and hoping the clock can give me an extra 3 hrs before I have to get up for work.

    Good Morning Krazy and Historian and all my funny posters.

    Machete and Axe Attacks in the same news day. Whew, we have problems w/North Carolinians trying to inflict harm with items that should be used in the yard. What next? A Sickle, Rake and/or a Hoe? Maybe a Saw?

    his-torian I like you.
    I am proud to be from America and
    nowhere else
    And if you don't like my point of view, tough...
    OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA , AND TO THE REPUBLIC, FOR WHICH IT STANDS, ONE NATION UNDER GOD, INDIVISIBLE, WITH LIBERTY AND JUSTICE FOR ALL! AMEN! I was asked to send this on if I agree or delete if I don't. It is said that 86% of Americans believe in God. Therefore I have a very hard time understanding why there is such a problem in having "In God We Trust" on our money and having "God" in the Pledge of Allegiance. Why don't we just tell the 14% to Shut Up ,lay down and BE QUIET!!!

    We need a ban on machete sales. The machete deaths/assaults are out of control. We need a ban!
