Well I guess you all weren't listenin' when I voted for Deadmanwalking so I guess I'll vote for Arrow and if that don't do it then just sign both of us up for the job. Our plan is to corner the market on toilet paper, Give 'em lots of MRE's with lots of greasey food in it with plenty of water and pop corn along with a good supply of prunes and then ...drumroll here..Don't sell 'em any toilet paper!!!!!!! We figure they will give it up in three days and then the coup de gras..we're gonna let them mop up the place......Deadmanwalking, under command of Generalisimo Arrow.

Oh I just thought of one problem with this plan, they do not use toilet paper to begin with. Might be better to sell them the MRE's and then withhold water instead. I have seen this have some very bad side effects ;-)

This Day in History
1863: Confederate General John Bell Hood is officially removed as commander of the Army of Tennessee.

1870: Declaring he did not care whether or not it was the rebellious band of Indians he had been searching for, Colonel Eugene Baker orders his men to attack a sleeping camp of peaceful Blackfeet along the Marias River in northern Montana.

1941: Charles A. Lindbergh, a national hero since his nonstop solo flight across the Atlantic, testifies before the House Foreign Affairs Committee on the Lend-Lease policy-and suggests that the United States negotiate a neutrality pact with Hitler. He eventually contributed to the war effort, though, flying 50 combat missions over the Pacific.

1949: The Communist Chinese forces begin their advance on Nanking.

1951: Thirty-three F-84s of the U.S. Air Forces 27th Fighter-Escort Wing engaged 30 MiG-15s in a dogfight over the skies of Sinuiju. In less than a minute Captains Allen McGuire and William Slaughter each destroyed a MiG while First Lieutenant Jacob Kratt scored two kills, the first double MiG kill of the war.

One crew member is killed as a result of the attack and the crew is held in captivity for eleven months before being released.

1973: President Richard Nixon claims that Vietnam peace has been reached in Paris and that the POWs would be home in 60 days.
