I may not understand them and certainly do not have the fervor of them, but I recognize they are there and do not stand in judgment of them within the confines of the Constitution of the United States.

What I do not understand is why entities of the South, such as the ACC do not stand up against the tyranny of oppressors, much as you have done.

I am reminded of Thomas Paine in his opposition to George Washington, fearless in his rebuttals.

“Tyranny, like hell, is not easily conquered; yet we have this consolation with us, that the harder the conflict, the more glorious the triumph.”
Tis the business of little minds to shrink; but he whose heart is firm, and whose conscience approves his conduct, will pursue his principles unto death." Thomas Paine at various times and places.


You Mr. Billybud are the Thomas Paine of our times to sound the clarion call.


I know not what path you chose, but as for me, give me SEC or give me death. And as for me and my house, we WILL follow the Bulldawgs. Amen.

It is truly all right to be misguided.
As I age it is hard to tell if I am inspired by reasoned passion or arthritic knees; most likely it is arthritic reasoning.

With the passing of Mrs. Reagan, I reflect that I think we have had a lot better First Ladies than we have had Presidents. Not sure of any exceptions.

Each team picked five other athletes before Brady was taken in round six.


Brady was a late bloomer. No one saw how good he could be from his time at Michigan.
