    I still can't get behind this. Yes, it is true that slavery existed under the flag of the United States far longer than it did under the Confederacy. Yes, it was legal. Yes, the Emancipation...

    This is something I think about all the time at N-SSA competitions. I get absolutely filthy after a day of shooting. Your hands are black, and the front of your shirt gets black splotches on it.

    I've been to strip clubs with bachelor parties where you had to surrender your phone if you wanted to stay. This was many years ago though. I don't know if they still do that or not.
