This comes up when I click that on the link:
It is better to be consistently incorrect than inconsistently correct...

Sarcasm: The ability to insult stupid people without them realizing it. 

My level of sarcasm depends on your level of stupidity...

Sarcasm makes smart people laugh and stupid people mad.

I didn't know Jim personally.  My ONLY dealings with him was shortly before his death.  I was trying to dig up cheap parts to build Keegan Wilder a new hunting rifle while he is undergoing chemo treatments.  Jim was one of the first guys to chime in by donating 100pc of lapua brass.  Got the ball rolling and before we could blink we had a whole entire rifle plus reloading supplies donated.  From what I gathered that was standard Jim.  Rest in peace sir, you will be missed.
It is foolish and wrong to mourn these men.  Rather, we should thank god that such men lived.  -General George S. Patton

I really enjoyed his posts, he will be missed.
Only 2 defining forces sacrificed themselves for you:
The American Soldier and Jesus Christ. One died for your freedom, the other for your soul.

My rock,
He trains my hands for war and my fingers for battle.

Pretty sad - Jim's passing as well as Jimmy Ljutic in January. Both taken way too young...

RIP
