Machete

Classic Rodriguez

Padre Benito del Toro: It's not safe for you to be here.

Machete: I'm not looking for "safe."

Padre Benito del Toro: No, I mean it's not safe for me for you to be here!

    Like Fox News . . .

    "There's no doubt in my mind that if terrorists had acquired a nuclear weapon, they would not hesitate to use it."
