I don't have a machine gun, those are illegal. But if you try and come into my home, invasion style? Let me just say I will know about it, well before you think I do and when you arrive, i'll be the one having all the fun. That much I assure you. My system goes far beyond a six shooter in the night stand. Anytime anyone, or thing gets near m home I am alerted to the exact position, by which I can then follow your movement on my infa red monitor. If you attempt to enter my home, after being warned not to do so, you won't be leaving in one piece.

Now this may, or may not be true, but hey, it sure is fun to imagine.

You keep saying things I was going to say before I can say them.
Note to self...start reading threads before Happytexan does.

The police can come into your home anytime, no knock raid and if you shoot them, it's your fault. They can also arrest you for pretty much any trumped up charge.

No harm, no foul.

Oh, nevermind then. I guess the fiat currency that the Treasury would print to cover any possible FDIC failure would be worth just as much as what I had before. All is well.

Yeah, our dollars are just sitting there, ready for the big devaluation after all this spending and printing.

I'm going to bury what little I have in coffee cans in the backyard, and with my memory I'll forget where I buried it....
