. I believe it was Teddy Roosevelt who made the phrase "speak softly and carry a big stick" popular. I think we can update that expression to "walk with confidence and carry a big stick".

The ne'er do wells that prey on their fellow man are usually looking for an easy mark. These types don't want to mess with a man or woman that carry themselves in a confident manner and has a big honkin' piece of hardwood in their hand.

I can't speak for anyone else but I do suspect most of us are not in the type of shape to carry out a prolonged battle. The stick or cane I carry isn't for combat. If I can't avoid confrontation then it's my last line of defense and I hope the poke I administer is enough of a deterrent to let me walk away.
