    Terry, I sent you a message under conversations.

    Dave I stand by what I said above and advise you to give it some thought. I am personally sick and tired of your agitating, condescending and more.

    Seems like you might think about how many people have you on ignore.

    In the real world there are give and take, in your world the give seems to be missing.

    Talk to you later.

    Dave what you want is us to agree with you and that is not likely to happen.

    My suggestion to you is stop posting here.

    I need to stop Terry. The election stealing lies, egging on the mob on Jan. 6th and McConnell severely criticizing Trump about it all seems not to phase any of you.

    Nothing I'm going to say can make any difference. So I give up.

    I think that is best for all involved, stick to the Football Board. Lots of good things happening in Gainesville.

    Here's the rule:

    Harry Truman said, "Anyone who goes into politics poor and comes out rich is a crook."

    Johnson; Nixon; Clinton; Obama...

    How oblivious can one person be? We're losing out energy independence (gas is going up every week) We can't deport violent criminals, thousands are streaming across our boarders during a pandemic. We have millions out of work and they now have to compete for jobs with illegals. We're supposedly going to be a friendly ally and the first thing that Biden does is stick his finger in the eye of Canada shutting down the Keystone pipeline. The proposed Covid stimulus bill is full of money to Dem favorites such as the Endowment for the Arts, the Kennedy Center, schools with non working teachers, and payoffs to blue states that strangled their economies to ruin the national economy. And to pay for that crap, a large tax increase is right around the corner. We're now cozying up to Iran again. It wasn't enough that we gave them hundreds of millions of dollars in CASH, they played Kerry and Obama for the suckers that they are and never bothered to sign the supposed agreement. The Dems know that America won't take their Socialism without strongly opposing it. That's why they're hiding behind troops and fences. Meanwhile we have a segment of the population that still is playing with their Trump appendage.

    Sacrificing our own energy independence is a tragic decision. The ripple down effect on the economy in general will be profound. Unemployment is edging up as covid continues to eliminate jobs on a permanent basis. At the same time we are inviting as may as a 1 million needy illegals in who will be looking for total care. Fort Washington DC continues to be an armed, walled razor wired fortress meant to protect the zealots now in power. Lincoln and Washington are the next targets for erasure from history. It is clear at the one month mark that Biden is either completely in the pocket of the radical Left or he is so mentally and physically incapcitated that he is basically unaware of what is transpiring under his brain-fogged leadership. The only measurable statistic that is increasing at an alarming rate under Joe Biden is child suicides. What these social psychopaths have done to the 18 and under school kids in this nation is a world class "war" crime.

    Hasn't got as much play but the Texas AG left the state during the storm and traveled to Utah. Now he was actually traveling on official business and did meet with the Utah AG in a meeting that had been arranged before this weather disaster came up. But still he's been criticized for leaving the state during the crisis.

    For the record, I just saw the red “disagree” X under Scott’s above post and removed it. Don’t know how it got there. Probably accidentally tapped it on my cell phone. I don’t disagree. Sorry.

    As long you realize that I’m the better looking in the family and momma definitely agrees

    Hmmmp, yeah I’m not so much a Dodge fan, it gets rather expensive after the warranty it seems. That being said I bought the extended warranty on my current F-150 and thank the Lord because even it’s falling apart all the time. I’m sure it’s definitely not the skilled operator at the wheel

    I'll be more specific: RAM.
    Since there's so much bad Italian DNA injected into Chrysler vehicles nowadays, I'd never trust them.
    Case in point was Ralph's Ram with that little Italian diesel in it... WTF?
    Cummins makes a nice small diesel, but they elected not to use it.
    Ralph's required some kind of freakish pump system just to change the oil.
    AJ also is a little deluded.
    I'll hook up hitches against any bowtie truck with my deleted 6.7 Powerstroke.
    She just hit a 100k on the odo, so it's barely broken in.
    Only time it's ever been to the shop was because it's owner got a little over zealous with an out of spec torque wrench, and broke a trans pan bolt.
    I was too chicken to drill that out myself, so paid the shop to do it.

    Lulz, the 33 miles per gallon on the Ecodiesel were great times, once it hit 100k and the inadequate Obama regulations to regenerate the exhaust got rather costly. I held tough all the way to the $12k mark and 5 different visits to the dealership and it running at a max speed of 45mph the sixty miles to the dealership. Between the service gal, parts guy and the owner of the dealership they finally convinced me it was wasn’t going to get better.. The main complaint was you cannot idle as it totally screws the regen , my response is I bought it mainly because I idle and it’s a diesel, I can’t go over 15 mph for the next 10 hours...
