"Number one: breathe. If you don’t, you’ll suffocate.

Number two: You have a soul. Be careful with it.

Number three: Don’t be a turd. If you’re strong, be a protector and if you’re smart, be a humble influencer. Strength and intelligence can be weapons and do not wield them against the weak. That makes you a bully. Be bigger than that.

Number four: When giving a dog medicine, put the medicine in a little piece of hamburger and they won’t even know they’re eating medicine.

Number five: Doesn’t matter what it is, earn it. A good deed, reach out to someone in pain, be of service, it feels good and it’s good for your soul.

Number six: God is real. God loves you. God wants the best for you. Believe that. I do.

Number seven: If you have to poop at a party, but you’re embarrassed because you’re going to stink up the bathroom, just do what I do. Lock the door. Sit down, get all the pee out first. Okay? Then, when all the pee’s done, poop-flush-boom. You minimize the amount of time that the poop is touching the air because if you poop first, then it takes you longer to pee and you’re peeing on it, stirring it up and the poop particles create a cloud that goes out and then everyone at the party will know that you pooped. Just trust me, it’s science.

Number eight: Learn to pray. It’s easy and it’s so good for your soul.

Number nine: Nobody is perfect. People are going to tell you you’re perfect just the way you are; you’re not! You are imperfect. You always will be, but there’s a powerful force that designed you that way. And if you’re willing to accept that you will have grace and grace is a gift. Like the freedom we enjoy in this country that grace was paid for with somebody else’s blood. Do not forget it. Don’t take it for granted.

God bless you. Please get home safely."

    Number four and number seven are just damn good advice! ;)

    While I assign no weight  to speeches at these types of events it is nice to see an actual current Hollywood “star” bucking the system.  I do enjoy his work and he’s come a long way from his sitcom days.  He is a talented young man and at least in the surface he seems to have his head in straight.

    he takes co-stars on movies hunting to introduce them to guns and life outside the Hollywood bubble.  He does seem to be a good guy and one on our side.  As one guy I know said- if he can keep his act straight, he could be the next Tom Selleck (Conservative, NRA board member, etc...)

    Not only did he carry a rifle in Jurassic World that I would very much like to own, my understanding is that he personally owns one and knows how to use it.

    Didn't know that.  Good for him!  I like him more already  :)

    All of these are good, but I'm puzzled about No. 7. My reasoning is it makes no difference the sequence of poop and pee. If you poop first hit the leaver immediately. Unless you have a plumbing problem or a water shortage it's not a single shot. By the time you're finished peeing the bowl is full again ready for the second flush.
