Si found religion after Vietnam, left the service after 24 years, and immediately went to work for Duck Commander. He's probably the most popular Robertson on Duck Dynasty â€“ mainly because he'll do anything and says the funniest things, like "First it's pretty tires, then it's pretty guns .?.?. next thing you know, you're shavin' your beard and wearin' capri pants" and "I sting like a butterfly and punch like a flea" â€“ and his newfound fame has led to a few problems. "The other night," he says, "it's 12:03 in the morning, and somebody is knocking on the door, and I'm like, 'You've got to be kidding me,' and I look outside and there's 25 people standing in my yard. You know, He's the reason this show has gone on like it has, but I have to ask Him every day, 'Give me strength to deal with this.'?"
In the flesh, Si seems somewhat more reserved than he does on the show, and he often defers to big...
Christroher, kidding aside, you are a very sensitive person, so am I. I have a grandson the same way, the first deer he killed he threw up and he never really hunted anymore..instead he rode his papaws four wheeler and played around with kids at the camp.Actually, the son who is a CRNA( puts people to sleep) is the same way m aybe that's why he took to that type profession. God made us all a little different for His own reasons. I notice you are careful not to hurt people..you have rescued me more than once from some pretty harsh posts..that's a gift, Christroher..we need more like you in this world
Sorry, too lazy to go look the word up in the dictionary..just got home from church and pretty tired..good sermon though..about we are all going to stand before the judgement seat of God..sinners before the Great White Throne..christians before the judgement seat of Christ to recieve our rewards according to how we used the talents we were given..anyway, it was his heart doctor that told him to eat more vension..of course he is a hunter also..I know because thats what they talk about when he goes in for his check ups. You see he has 5 stents in one artery and 2 in another.
Christropher, we are on the same page and I do exactly what you do with bugs even spiders. I work really hard trying to get them out of the house. So just imagine how you would feel if you got a text from your son or husband ( well not husband..scratch that) with a picture of this beautiful deer with his head down, blood coming out and you have to say,"oh wow that's a nice one..good eating that one"!! They always send pictures because they feel proud as a hunter in old pioneer days when they brought food home for his family. Actually his cardiolist told him to eat more venison. If things go the way they are now for much longer( cattle have been sold off because of the drought conditions here in Texas ...they are dying in places from drought).. maybe Anne from the Wild West can teach you how to hunt. LOL
Oh man, Dolores...I am such an animal lover that I can't kill anything. If I find even a spider in my home, I get it into a dixie cup and out it outside...ha-ha. If it was a matter if life or death, I wouldn't have a choice, I guess, although, I wouldn't know how to prepare anything. Throw the whole thing into a pot of water, add some seasonings, and stir? Hmmm. Anyway, I was hunting in the MI mountains when I was young with a big brother. We each had a shot gun and he had me aim and shoot at a rabbit hiding in some brush. Well, I hit it and blew it apart and felt awful. Ever since then, I could never kill another animal.
I hope they don't start trying to control bow and arrow..that is my son's favorite to hunt with..he killed a six point buck yesterday with his bow..first one killed in their camp..my sons grew up hunting with their dad and we love vension. If someone wants to kill they will do it and it doesn't have to be a gun.
Out of control has no rights. I can't take any comments seriously from people who allow their government to disarm them. That's what you call mindless sheep. We do need sin control. Son may control man but God can control man and sin. Nice try at the constant insults by all you who can't defend your home or hunt or defend your personal freedoms from a overbearing controlling government . Glad I don't live there.
out of control wrote: ""'It Ain't Gun Control We Need, It's Sin Control"" A NaÃ¯ve idea. Man cannot control sin. Sin controls man. Man is under the dominion of sin in this fallen world. Man can control guns. Of course having more gun shop arsenals in every mall, than supermarkets points to a nation who is NOT in control of their local assault rifle retail outlet.
America - Gun retail stores = 51,438. Large supermarkets = 36,569. ---
More bla bla rubbish. But it's nice to know the Aussies are concerned about what happens here.
btw the link statistics are nonsensical. Comparing the number of grocery stores above $2,000,000 "turnover" vs numbers of gun stores is irrelevant. What about a similar monetary turnover for the gun store? Only the ignorant will be impressed by this nonsense.
The link gives a selected list of countries and the number of guns per 1000 people. Problem is the dummies that came up with the list didn't look to see what the actual death rates were. The US said to have 867 guns per 1000; South Africa, 118 per 1000. To the list maker, and silly people who talk of gun arsenals in every mall, this must mean it's much safer in S.A. Yet their gun death rate is double the US. Wake up!
funny that within this medical-Darwinian vortex called the modern nanny state, there's a need to control the men, who still feel obligated to serve and love their community, especially their families.
and the Godly men trying to protect their families, such as one I knew that literally saved a woman's life from a group of thugs, which the police were very greatful and thankful for his presence, that will never reach the ears of those who run the nanny state.
the gentleman would have saved her life, even if she tried to take that right from him, just that kind of guy.
I want to keep Godly men around, and don't want them run into the ground.
The states in the US where we have the strictest gun control laws are incidentally the states with the highest murder rates with firearms. This should prove that Mr. Frost was more on the correct track. If guns don't work as personal protection and they are useless for anything but murder, why do security personnel and cops carry them? Guns are not the problem. Its the morals of our society that are the problem.

You may be onto something. 32000 die annually in traffic. I wonder how many deaths would be avoided if there were stricter auto controls. 4000 annually drown. Certainly this could be avoided if there were stricter swimming controls. 2 or 3000 a year are stabbed to death. Surely due to a lack of knife control. The 1000 or so strangled might have been prevented with stricter hand controls. All this complacency while our fellow citizens are dying needlessly is unacceptable. Why isn't the government doing something?
8500 deaths......kind of makes me wonder how many of those deaths could have been avoided had the deceased been armed. I don't suppose it would make anyone feel any better had those deaths been inflicted by knives, eh?

Might be a good idea to address the issue in the UN, what with Mexico, Brazil, South Africa, Panama, among those with higher death rates by firearms than in the US.
