    Funny thing is, these leftist groups are no different than ISIS, bulldozing and destroying historic places and artifacts they don't like. Our history is what it is, and if we don't have ways to remember that history it will be forgotten...and you know what they say about those who forget history. Down in Paducah, there is talk about renaming a school. Problem is, the school wasn't named after a Confederate soldier, but rather his WIFE. Her children wanted a way to remember and honer her, so they paid for the school to be built and donated it to the community in her honor to bear her name. If I were the decendents, I'd be looking into what legal recourse was available to possibly reclaim that donated property as it would no longer be honoring their grandmother/great grandmother/etc as intended. Name stays or we take it back and keep the name, only now if you want to continue using it you can rent it from us...or we'll close the school altogether and turn it into a museum. This white-washing of history won't make history go away, and it only creates tension between the 90% who want to remember vs the 10% who are out to cause trouble.

    According to our Inside Sources, a man today based in Beaver Lick, Kentucky (It's a real place) actually found the G spot of his wife. Unlike other reported findings such as Treasure Island, Atlantis, and the finding of flight MH370, that we gave "very unlikely" odds to. We believe this story to be utterly impossible.

    Today is Vietnam Veterans Day and today we remember. The day was originally known as Long Tan Day, chosen to commemorate the men of D Company, 6RAR who fought in the battle of Long Tan in 1966. On that day, 108 Australian and New Zealand soldiers fought a pitched battle against over 2,000 North Vietnamese and Viet Cong troops in a rubber plantation not far from the small village of Long Tan. The Australians prevailed, but only after fighting in torrential rain for four hours. They were nearly overrun, but were saved by a timely ammunition resupply, accurate artillery fire from the nearby Australian base, and the arrival of reinforcements by armoured personnel carrier. Eighteen Australians lost their lives and 24 were wounded, the largest number of casualties in one operation since the Australian task force had arrived a few months earlier. After the battle the bodies of 245 enemy soldiers were found, but there was evidence that many more bodies had been carried away. On the third anniversary of Long Tan, 18 August 1969, a cross was raised on the site of the battle by the men of 6RAR. Veterans from the battle gathered at the cross to commemorate the fallen, and the day was commemorated by them as Long Tan Day from then on. Over time, all Vietnam veterans adopted the day as one to commemorate those who served and died in Vietnam. In 1987, following the very successful Welcome Home parade for Vietnam veterans in Sydney, Prime Minister Bob Hawke announced that Long Tan Day would be known as Vietnam Veterans Day. Since then, it has been commemorated every year as the day on which the service of all those men and women who served in Vietnam is remembered. The Vietnam War was Australia’s longest military engagement of the 20th century. Almost 60,000 Australians fought in the war and more than 500 lost their lives. Vietnam Veterans Day is commemorated on 18 August every year. This year marks the 50th anniversary of the Battle of Long Tan which would become one of the most extraordinary chapters in Australia’s military history. I have copied and pasted this as quicker than me typing a mess up here and making a hash of it to all the blokes who fought in that war and all the wars that Australia gets involved in thank you Paul

    The Civil War was not ALL about slavery. But at any rate, it all is part of our history. And it might mend if the MEDIA and Jessie Jackson and Al Sharpton would let it be. The southern states are proud. And there was lives lost on both sides, northern, southern. Black, white.. Just because some statues or the confederate flag bothers some group or individual doesn't mean they should be taken down or destroyed . It is OUR history. Yes, Martin Luther King was shot and killed, and there are statues and streets in many cities named after him. John F. Kennedy and Robert Kennedy were shot and killed also and there are NOT statues and streets named in they honor everywhere. Robert Kennedy is hardly ever spoke of, John Kennedy was assassinated while he was president of the United States, and that day in November is hardly even mentioned any more. But Martin Luther King is always talked about, and there is a national holiday in January honoring him. Why is there not a holiday for Bobby Kennedy? He fought for equal rights. We need to get over it and move on...

    This subject is getting a lot of attention. I have to comment on how President Trump is getting the usual liberal BS. Any time you speak the TRUTH you then are a bigot or a racist. What the President said about BOTH sides being at fault and having BAD people amongst them, in both groups. That was absolutely correct. Just look at all the religious civil wars. And even simpler, look at a big football, baseball game or soccer match. There is a winner and a loser, and a lot of the time the fans ( both sides ) get in a riot and fight. Some times even the winning teams fans go crazy and start tearing their own city up... So why is Trump wrong for saying Both sides are at fault??????

    Don't get me wrong, I am not saying slavery was ok. But from history I have read it was tribal wars in Africa that brought on slavery. Black against black. One tribe would capture others and then they were sold into slavery. The slaves were an investment and were treated well. You could say that the Irish, Scotts, Welch, Italians that worked in the coal mines were basically slaves also. They paid rent for company housing, had to buy all their goods from the company store ( and if they didn't, there were big problems), the tools they needed to do their job had to be purchased at the company store , ( now you work for a construction outfit, they supply the shovel or what ever). They were paid in script that was worthless anywhere other than the company store. That kinda sounds like being a slave too. I don't hear any thing along those lines. The mules that were used deep in the mines in Butte, Montana were treated better than the men. Just something to think of.....

    Yep 41, a BIG,grain of salt! I'm watching the local news this morning,and I see "Three year old killed by truck" I'm looking at the tv and I don't see a "truck" I see a "pickup" I'm pretty sure a lot of folks who hear this on the radio picture a child being run over by a tractor trailer or other actual truck due to what I perceive as the anti truck bias! Same bias that causes many law firms to post billboards on the interstate "Have an accident with a semi?" They know most trucking firms don't want to face a jury regardless of who is at fault" It's a "win win" for them! Just my opinion....yours?

    Here is the new (used) ride. 2013 Ram 4x4, 5.7 with the 8 speed. Full width rear doors. Took her out to Mechanicsburg Pa today for the part time job. 16.4 average mpg, had I not done so much local driving in town that would have been higher. Rides as smooth as butter melting on a hot buscuit.

    Moments before that shot was taken, that Challenger was struck on the rear bumper by someone who jumped off the curb as it passed. It was going slowly when this happened, then rapidly sped up after the hit. I have seen video of this happening. The video is not clear enough to determine if the object used was a bat or a stick. Note in the above photo that the brake lights are on. I am NOT convinced that this was an intentional act, but rather a reaction to the person striking his car. Challengers are not cheap cars and every owner I have ever met treats theirs as their baby. Try semi-automatic weapons. Fully automatic weapons are highly controlled and extremely expensive, requiring a Class 3 Federal Firearms License and an expensive tax stamp to possess one. Most owners would never take one to such an event. As for the guns that were present, they would not have been "menacing" to anyone if those other people had never shown up!

    Maybe I'm wrong but I just don't get it. If a group decides to protest, which is a right, that I don't agree with, let them protest. They are entitled to their beliefs. Those who oppose, stay home. The protesters will go away and life will go on. Those who disagree can protest another day.

    Extremely well said. It seems that all the groups today want to achieve their agenda's objectives in full, which of course is impossible. There can only be compromise, a middle ground of sorts. (As Mick Jagger said, "You can't always get what you want".) And so many people feel entitled. Our generation never felt that way, rather, we were only entitled to the fruits of an honest day's hard work.
