Took this picture of this plaque years ago. Gives a little history of the photo. Not Cannabis but interesting.

"I’m going to plead with you, do not cross us. Because if you do, the survivors will write about what we do here for 10,000 years.”
-Gen. James "Mad Dog" Mattis, with one of the hardest call signs of all time aka "Chaos"


An aerial gunner stands before his B-24 bomber wearing what it took to survive at 25,000ft over WWII battlefield in 1943-45.

“I come in peace. I didn’t bring artillery. But I’m pleading with you, with tears in my eyes: If you fuck with me, I’ll kill you all.”
-Gen. James "Mad Dog" Mattis aka Chaos



B-24 of the 460th Bomb Group drops a load of fragmentation bombs on the Aidrome at Neuberg, Austria – 26 March 1945



I love looking through nose art or artwork that was painted on the planes. Stumbled on this gem, funny they chose to title a skunk riding the bomb as "Little Flower"...

“I don’t know whether you fully understand that I have just been shot—but it takes more than that to kill a Bull Moose.”
Theodore Roosevelt campaign speech opening minutes after being shot

The Dos Equis guy has nothing on one of our toughest American's ever, President and all around badass... Theodore Roosevelt...


A 19-year-old Theodore Roosevelt during his freshman year at Harvard, 1877

There are so many stories about Roosevelt that are just so amazing that they sound a tale of legend or myth, but make no mistakes, Theodore Roosevelt was a badass. Like when he was just getting into Politics and took a trip to his frontier hideaway in Mingasville, ND to clear his head.

As he was enjoying his drink at a local bar, some pissed off cowboy pulled out his gun and took a couple shots at Roosevelt. Standing the gunman points his gun at Roosevelt's head, his reaction, Roosevelt laugh's...

Choosing to take control of the situation, Roosevelt charges the gunman knocking the gun away and continues to bash his head against the bar until he is unconscious. Not enough, Roosevelt drags the guy outside to a shed and locks the unconscious would be assassin in for the night... Damn...


Teddy Roosevelt harpooning devilfish 1917

But our quote today comes from one of his most badass moments just after being shot...

October 14, 1912 on the campaign trail in Milwaukee, just getting into his car outside the Gilpatrick Hotel for the ride to his speech at a rally. He stands in the convertible to wave at all the onlookers when 5 feet away a gunman pulls out his .38 and shoots Roosevelt point blank in the chest...

An instant chaotic scene erupts instantly with chaos around the car everywhere. According to one eyewitness at the scene "one man was “the coolest and least excited of anyone in the frenzied mob”: Roosevelt"...


Theodore Roosevelt's X-ray after being shot

What does Roosevelt do after being shot? He coughs in his hand 3 times, after not seeing blood he decides the bullet had not punctured his lungs and against his doctors pleas for the hospital he commands the driver “You get me to that speech.”...

He continued to the campaign rally where he walked on stage, minutes after being shot in the chest point blank, and gives a 90 minute defiant speech...

“I give you my word, I do not care a rap about being shot; not a rap,”
Theodore Roosevelt quote from speech minutes after being shot


New York Times, October 15, 1912 front page


Theodore Roosevelt 1907
