THE POWER OF POSITIVE THINKING!!!!
President Barack Obama was in the Oval Office when his telephone rang.
“Hello, President Obama” a heavily accented southern voice said. “This is
Archie, down here at Joe’s Catfish Shack, in Mobile, and I am callin‘ to tell
ya’ll that we are officially declaring war on y’all!”
“Well Archie,” Barack replied, “This is indeed important news! How big is
“Right now,” said Archie, after a moments calculation “there is myself,
my cousin Harold, my next-door-neighbor Randy, and the whole dart team from
Hooters. That makes eight!”
Barack paused. “I must tell you Archie that I have one million men in my
army waiting to move on my command.”
“Wow,” said Archie. “I’ll have to call ya back!”
Sure enough, the next day, Archie called again. “Mr. Obama, the war is
still on! We have managed to acquire some infantry equipment!”
“And what equipment would that be Archie?” Barack asked.
“Well sir, we have two combines, a bulldozer, and Harry’s farm tractor.”
President Obama sighed. “I must tell you Archie, that I have 16,000 tanks
and 14,000 armored personnel carriers. Also I’ve increased my army to one
and a half million since we last spoke.”
“Lord above”, said Archie, “I’ll be getting back to ya.”
Sure enough, Archie called again the next day. “President Obama! I am
sorry to have to tell you that we have had to call off this here war.”
“I’m sorry to hear that” said Barack. “Why the sudden change of heart?”
Well, sir,” said Archie, “We’ve all sat ourselves down and had a long
chat over sweet tea, and come to realize that there’s just no way we can feed
that many prisoners.”
SOUTHERN CONFIDENCE CANNOT BE SHAKEN
If you are a REAL Southerner, you won’t even need to be told to pass this on!
All unclassified Army and Marine Cops manuals and correspondence courses are products of the US Federal Government. They are NOT subject to copyright and can be freely copied and redistributed.
The Marine Corps Institute (MCI) develops correspondence courses for Marines with all kinds of Military Occupational Specialties (MOS) on all manner of subjects. This is one of those courses.
The print is relatively small because that is the way it was in the original and this is an exact reproduction. Also, as a tribute to the individual (and a touch of reality), you will notice that the editorial pencil marks and underlined passages that were put there by the Marine that took this course. They were intentionally left in the reproduction.
This version of the course was authorized in September of 1984. With the exception the development of Infrared technology, it contains information and techniques that have changed very little since the Vietnam war. These battle proven tactics are as valid today as they were in Quang Nam province in 1968.
They will maintain their validity during the upcoming inevitable event of total economic, political and social collapse. Yours for freedom in our lifetimes. jtl, 419
