General Cosgrove was interviewed on the radio recently.
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 one of the best comeback lines of all time. It is a portion of an ABC interview between a female broadcaster and General Cosgrove who was about to sponsor a Boy Scout Troop visiting his military headquarters.

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

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

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

GENER AL COSGROVE:
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 COSGROVE:
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 COSGROVE:
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

Hah hah

That is a good comeback. Sylvan's comeback is not, but whatever. He can die. Too bad Americans don't speak this bluntly.

I saw this before.

I almost posted it. Glad you did, theres more information about it than I had. We do need more openess from our military leaders.

P.S. Sylvan, go put piss on an electrical outlet.

Looks like he was on 4 hrs. ago. I just wanted to piss in his cheerios even if he wasn't around to see it. I just got on a little bit ago and saw him up there, I think I'm going to quit responding to anything he does after this though in hopes that he goes away.

He posted some comment about his ass face in here, or are you messing with me and telling me indirectly
that we're all ignoring him now?
