Justwaiting, If you read all the post I think maybe one post was in agreement with the retired marine, even the one that posted it doesn’t agree. I personally do not agree. We sometimes post these topics for that same reason you have posted to get everyone’s opinions.
Just because this is a web site for survival doesn’t mean everyone agrees on all the topics and that is the reason the web site is great. We here all tell it like it is and some are not the same as others, we are all here to learn.
Do not take one post to personally and responded to the post you have a problem with.
