  1. You better put those valuables away..... Congrats once again. Man, low 70's..... you're killin' me.
  2. It's also too bad that you didn't say something smart like this yesterday. We could've had a different conversation. Maybe next time.
  3. I will concede on this point. Since I have not actually laid in a foxhole while my buddy died next to me, I can't know exactly what causes a man to put himself in that situation. My apologies to any Vets who were offended by my overstep. Luke
  4. Amen to that lady. Maybe some day we'll have a President like that.
  5. Maybe they don't need bombs? They could just cause a situation where people would willingly go outside and congregate and continue to spread the virus around.
  6. And my Queensryche tribute wouldn't be complete without this gem.
  7. This one came out in 1990.... If you don't like the music, turn it down and read the lyrics.
  8. They live in Minneapolis. They didn't have to do anything to bring the cops to their neighborhood. I get what you're trying to say, but if you look again, you'll see normal people. The one lady was even wearing a white mask. Remember when out biggest problem was Covid? Why can't they just be concerned citizens who are worried?
  9. So you're saying that since I don't have combat experience, my words carry less weight than yours? That only combat veterans are enlightened enough to know 'the real truths'? Did you serve for the flag and the song? Or was it for what they represent? Do I have to be deployed in order to possess that insight? Are the symbols more important than the values they are supposed to represent? When you can't produce an effective counter, you call me an arrogant kid. This country was founded on idealism.
  10. Can we all agree that not all protestors are lawbreakers? Same as, not all cops are bad cops.
  11. So you're still talking down to me? At what age will my opinion matter? Due to your age, I've given you the respect you 'deserve' as an elder. Just because you are 'not young' are you done learning? Do you want to flash your 'Veteran's card' again? I can think of someone else who didn't serve. He actually put in some effort to avoid his duty. You sure seem to think his opinion is worth consideration.
  12. I'm not your son. I fully expected you to react that way to me. I realize that because I didn't serve, my 'patriotism' is not as grand as yours. If you think that you have some sort of say on who is a 'good American' or not, you've missed the whole point of this country. I humbly salute all past and present service members. Those who fought for the true values of this country. Not some deluded version of Us vs. Them.
  13. Yeah, I know. But time and time again, that's not how it turns out. If there was 'no race' and all humans were 'the same color', would the police brutality issue be more important to everyone? If they were killing people that looked like 'us', would we still be more concerned with the looting and arson?
  14. Even a cop kneeling on another man's neck in broad daylight like it's no big deal.
  15. But not equal treatment under the law.
  16. So if you have 'bad parents' or live in a 'bad neighborhood' tough luck? You don't think many of these people would love to be able to go somewhere safer and more fruitful? Everyone is free to make choices, more or less. Some people have much fewer choices presented to them based on their circumstances through no fault of their own.
  17. So you're placing your feelings about a song and a piece of cloth over the rights of other Americans? You don't like the forum he chose so 'you' won't entertain a discussion or even admit that it has merit. "He disrespected the flag...." "We can't have that....." There's no law that says that anyone has to do anything when the flag or anthem are presented. It is done out of respect, but not a requirement. Kneeling is another gesture that is done out of respect. Or at least it was before Kaep did it. Service members who fought and died in defense for our country didn't
  18. I hear what you're trying to say. The United States is a diverse place with many different communities. Arizona and Nevada are most likely on one end of the spectrum. While our country is not 'full of inequality', in some communities it still does exist.
  19. https://www.msn.com/en-us/news/us/protestors-knock-down-white-house-securitys-barricade-as-tensions-mount-over-floyds-death/ar-BB14ORuY?li=BBnb7Kz&ocid=edgsp Here's something I don't agree with. The protesters have every right to say what needs to be said. But when damage is done, and other Americans are put in a dangerous position, it's wrong.
  20. Let me be clear and say that just because I brought up Kaepernick, that doesn't mean I'm advocating for everything he's done or said. I do understand why he chose to do what he did. I'd think if 'people' had engaged in a meaningful discussion about what could be done to curb police brutality, he would have stood again. The discussion never took place, the thing was politicized and people were expected to choose sides. Advocating for people, who's rights are trampled on, does not make one a 'non-patriot'.
  21. Then your two statements seem to be in conflict.
  22. So then you agree with Colin Kaepernick? His peaceful protest was supposed to bring attention to this very subject. Until it was politicized, and every 'patriot' made it about something else.
