Well, gather ‘round.
This was back in the Old West where real men killed their own snakes without help from the government.
This young guy lived with his wife and 5-year-old daughter way back in the woods with just enough land to plant a garden and keep a cow and a few chickens and pigs.
Every so often, he would pack up for a couple of weeks and ride into town to make a little extra money for his family.
He rode back home one day and saw smoke a few miles away. He topped the last hill and saw where his house had been when he left a couple of weeks back.
His house had been burned to the ground and it was still smoking. He dug through the rubble and finally found his wife. She had been abused and tortured and finally killed.
He couldn’t find his daughter anywhere in the ashes. He searched and searched before finally finding her near the tree line. She had also been abused and tortured before being killed and left where she fell.
The guy was little, but he was filled with a large anger. He buried his wife and daughter, packed everything of value, and rode off.
He reached town a couple of days later, sold everything except his horse and gun, and went to the sheriff’s office. He described what had happened and asked if anyone could help him.
A deputy said a stranger dressed in black had been in the saloon a few days back. Nobody knew anything about him except he looked mean.
The stranger had left town heading west and the young man followed.
Towns weren’t all that close together back in the Old West where real men killed their own snakes without help from the government.
The young man had nothing left except his desire for revenge. He followed the stranger from town to town, always just a few days or hours behind.
One day, just at sunset, he walked into a saloon and saw a big man dressed in black seated alone at a table. Other customers were far away from the big man.
The young man took a seat at another table and waited. And waited and waited and waited.
Finally, the big man turned around and asked why the young man was looking at him.
The young man said, “Are you the mysterious stranger in black who burned a house and killed a woman and child about eight months ago?”
The stranger said, “Sure. What about it?”
Choking back tears, the young man said, “That was my home and my wife and my child. I’ve been tracking you ever since, and now I’ve finally found you.”
The stranger in black stood up — and up and up and up. He was a giant.
The young man looked up at him and said, “Well, you better watch that stuff.”
THIS IS HOW we will handle North Korea and the nukes.
