“There is a proverb that says America is always 3 days away from revolution. Stop delivering food to the supermarkets, and see what a country of 300 million people with a strong sense of entitlement and over 250 million guns have to say about it.”
Craig DiLouie, Tooth and Nail

“I want you out in the hallway, against the far wall in single file, ready to move, in fifteen. Drop your fartsack, Ratliff.”
Craig DiLouie
