    What are you binge watching?

    Watched season one and part of season 2 of El Chappo on net flix. I had to quit watching it because I could not stomach just how ruthless, evil and f#cked up the Drug cartels are. While I still believe our country needs to control our borders, I do have a better understanding of why people in...

    Siriux/XM First Team show discussing Franklin to Tenn.

    Although I support Franklin and like how he still stresses getting a degree and staying out of trouble, he still has a lot of work to do and growth to accomplish before he would be considered for the Clemson job IMO.

    OT: How Did i Miss this one....Hanks and Speilberg at it again

    I don't really believe those guys considered themselves as heroes. They did what they did because they loved their country, enlisted or were drafted, and most believed that they really had no choice. My father never talked about it, we only knew bits and pieces and he died when I was 15 so I...

    OT: How Did i Miss this one....Hanks and Speilberg at it again

    you are right about the advantage You are absolutely correct about the one big advantage soldiers and airmen had in the European theater. My father would not have made it without the aid of sympathetic Italian and Yugoslav civilians and partisans. Something the guys in the pacific did not have.

    OT: How Did i Miss this one....Hanks and Speilberg at it again

    Watched both the Pacific and Band of Brothers. Agree that the Pacific campaign was pure hell for the jar heads. The Japanese were relentless, ruthless and cruel. The Bataan march was about as nasty as it gets for a POW, other than the German extermination camps which murdered Jews and Slavs. I...

    We were told that we needed to fight the terrorists in Iraq so we wouldn't have to fight them here.

    Do Democrats like cops? Which party has been promoting the defunding of the police? Has your party’s position now changed all of a sudden? Why is that? I don’t give a rat’s ass right now about the election. The radical left has won. It is now in their court. Let’s see how all the socialist...

    After the debate, I saw that Mike Pence is only 61. Shot to the top of my list for 2024. Anyone else?

    I don’t think any Republican will have a chance after the Democrats completely rape the constitution by making DC a state, abolishing the electoral college and stacking the Supreme Court. But with that said, my preference would be Nikki Haley

    Pipe bombs? Have thy determined who is responsible for them? I hadn’t heard. Deaths? One unarmed former female veteran? You are right about one thing, the GOP lost, let’s see what the compassionate Democrats do the next four years.

    Unarmed people taking selfies in Nancy Pelosie's chair is overthrowing the Democracy? Those idiots have been arrested and are being dealt with, unlike the anarchists who ravaged our cities this summer. Good grief. Where were you when the cities were burning and being looted last summer? Why no...

    There will be twice as many troops in DC than Iraq and Afghanistan combined!

    Yea just like the democrats protected their cities from BLM and Antifa. Nancy is protecting herself and her comrades, she is not protecting you or I my friend.

    Yep, Democrat mayors and Governors all over the country refused National guard help and even kicked out Federal Marshals, and now the Dems surround themselves with police and troops. I wonder if they will vote to defund the Capital police.

    Not even waiting for the Inauguration. LOL

    How much of the 1.9 trillion goes to the looted cities as opposed to citizens and small business that are actually hurting as a result of the Democratic shutdowns?
