Rules from an Old Dragon

Dragon Rules
1.Marine Corps Rules: Once a Marine always a Marine
1a. Be courteous to everyone, friendly to no one.
2. Decide to be aggressive enough, quickly enough.
3. Have a plan.
4. Have a back-up plan, because the first one probably won’t work.
5. Be polite. Be professional. But, have a plan to kill everyone you meet ­ even your friends…
6. Do not attend a gunfight with a handgun whose caliber does not start with a “4.”
7. Anything worth shooting is worth shooting twice. Ammo is cheap. Life is expensive.
8. Move away from your attacker. Distance is your friend. (Lateral & diagonal preferred.)
9. Use cover or concealment as much as possible.
10. Flank your adversary when possible. Protect yours.
11. Always cheat; always win. The only unfair fight is the one you lose.
12. In ten years nobody will remember the details of caliber, stance, or tactics. They will only remember who lived.
13. If you are not shooting, you should be communicating your intention to shoot.

Show respect to all people, but grovel to none.

I do not kneel to grovel. I do not kneel to pray. I do not kneel because a person should not grovel for anything.  There are things that we need to help each other with.  We need to help others to their feet.  We need to by an extra burger for some one that can’t afford the one dollar.  We need to give a shoulder to those that need it.  Most of all we need to show respect to all.  We for get this with the people who are in our lives.  I am guilty of this many times, one woman cut me down at the knees, she is a strong British woman who has a power seldom seen.  I was stupid and I forgot that lesson and well I did not show respect to my ex as often as I should have. strike 2.  Both woman are strong and have a deep power that few will ever take the time to see.  So in front of the world I say ” I’m sorry my Ice Queen for the lack of respect I have shown” .  People ask me why I take the time to write these…..  I do it so if one person can learn from my mistake and save their relationship, I have made a contribution to their happiness.
