Problem is we here in the west have followed the teachings of Jesus as written in the New Testiment from the Gospel of Matthew; 38 ¶ Ye have heard that it hath been said, An eye for an eye, and a tooth for a tooth:
39 But I say unto you, That ye resist not evil: but whosoever shall smite thee on thy right cheek, turn to him the other also.
40 And if any man will sue thee at the law, and take away thy coat, let him have thy cloke also.
41 And whosoever shall compel thee to go a mile, go with him twain.
42 Give to him that asketh thee, and from him that would borrow of thee turn not thou away.

(you knew this was coming)
Jumped right into the act from day one.
Comes across as the sharpest knife in the drawer, seemingly full of confidence.
Got a full 6-pack, but lacks the plastic thingy to hold them together.
A photographic memory, but the lens cover is glued on.
Does not believe in God and is a prime candidate for natural de-selection.
Obsessed with Walmart and I never shop there anymore as I keep thinking I see him in an aisle with fatigues and an AK-47.
Makes love to anything inflatable so don't go to the beach with him, it's so embarrassing when he humps the dinghy's with his dinghy.
One of the few entrepreneur liberals on the entire planet.
Has a great gift for writing recipes, but they are never anything you would want to eat.
Could be a George Clooney stand in from a distance without your glasses.
Quieter than a church mouse (although he has never been in a church) in person.
Favorite male star, Alan Alda
Favorite female star, Jane Fonda.
Favorite movies, anything by Michael Moore.
Currently planing a trip to Alaska to see if he can see Sarah Palins house from there.
