Voice from the Commonwealth
Commentary, World Views and Occasional Rants from a small 'l' libertarian in Massachussetts

"If ye love wealth greater than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest for freedom, go home and leave us in peace. We seek not your council nor your arms. Crouch down and lick the hand that feeds you, and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen." - Samuel Adams

This old WWII vet (During World War II, Hendricks parachuted into the fray at Normandy on D-Day with the 82nd Airborne Division.) who fought off some guys who broke into his place by shooting at them with his .22 derringer. To further prove that this type of man, true to himself and brave, is the bane of liberals (besides owning a gun), he goes on to give us some words to live by.

"I'd rather be a dead hero than a live coward."

"I never ran in my life, and I don't intend to now,"

"I really wanted to get ahold of my .44, but I couldn't reach it. The guy was hanging onto me," Hendricks said.

"Don't pick on old men . . . or some old men,"

The robbers were captured when they tried to run and a neigbor came with his gun and stopped them.
