Patrick J. Brosnan's 10 Commandments To Survive ISIS

1st Commandment - Thou Shalt embrace "See Something, Say Something" and shall delete the words ""politically correct" and "profiling" from one's vocabulary.

2nd Commandment - Thou Shalt purchase a gun and shall practice often and carry every day in a comfortable holster.

3rd Commandment - Thou Shalt pay attention to one's surroundings and pull thy head out of thy Smart Phone.

4th Commandment - Thou Shalt monitor government's efforts to combat terrorism and shall write letters, make calls and not remain silent.

5th Commandment - Thou Shalt harass one's elected officials and demand changes in laws that will protect one from terrorism.

6th Commandment - Thou Shalt demand greater vigilance by elected officials in the issuance of ALL Visas, there are way too many criminals here already.

7th Commandment - Thou Shalt demand that our elected officials institute a thorough and complete background screening policy for all entrants to the U.S. - pro-Jihadi ranters on Facebook need not apply.

8th Commandment - Thou shalt demand that our elected officials close our borders from Mexico and Canada- build the damned fences.

9th Commandment - Thou Shalt insist that our elected officials prohibit terrorism suspects on our No Fly List from legally purchasing firearms- what could possibly be the argument to allow a terrorist suspect to buy a semi-automatic weapon?

10th Commandment - Thou Shalt lobby one's elected officials to train our police and provide them adequate firepower to effectively fight domestic terrorism.
