RTR GB What a photo to use. - GB I agree. You own it. Clemson's Defense was, as last year, not only fantastic but superior to Auburn's offense in every way - GB Last year, Auburn and Bama both lost to Clemson by a touchdown. For some, despite the drama, Auburn's loss was easier to take. Auburn's D held #4 Clemson to 19 points. Clemson ran up 35 on #1 Bama. Far as this game went, in a non-conference game #13 got beat by #5 by 8. End of story. Now begins SEC football. Auburn has had problems...
You bet. They can call me a "barner" if they want. I really don't mind. It's like being called a redneck. Bring it. I'm proud of my AU ties and my ag heritage. And my Bama friends, which outnumber AU around here, know and respect it. WDE
Tuberville? Tubervile brought AU 6 Iron Bowl wins. Not the Bear, but neither sides have come close since. And a perfect 2004 season afterwards he went duck hunting. Bear would find no fault with that. Chizik? Chizik maybe a one trick pony, but coached an pre-season unranked team to the NC. So these coaches had a little wiggle room for negotiation. No doubt $aban helped with that. But pre-Saban and post Stallings, what was Bama's payout for these coaches? Mike Dubose - Although DuBose was not...
Saban's half and post game comments as honest as they come. If UT beats GT Monday, the SEC will sweep 3 from the ACC the first weekend. Then comes next weekend with AU at Clemson, the second best teams in their conferences. WDE http://a.espncdn.com/sec/footb...0Schedule%20Grid.pdf http://www.secsports.com/schedule/football
maintain family farms - GBRK The farm's been in the family since 1877. It goes to my grandsons. If by non-traditional you mean topics other than politics, I'm all for them. Yours and Uncle Gus's comments on food are some of the best.
When will law enforcement and the government do something about antifa? - Gifted Law enforcement can do only that which the government allows them to do. Were law enforcement allowed to do what they want to do, there would have been no Ferguson or Baltimore and you would have never heard of antifa. Or "fa" for that matter.
The mills of the gods grind slowly, but they grind exceedingly fine, and they will grind Trump and his sleazy minions right out of the White House. You will not hear from me again until that process is concluded. - contendahh [/beternu] http://tnvalleytalks.hoop.la/t...9#562713145063673959
As for the major players and M.A.D. I think that will continue to work just as long as calmer heads do not allow some 3rd party conflict to escalate to the point that unreasonable and crazy irrational decisions are made and things happen so fast calmer heads don't have time to intervene and stop something before a point of no return is passed. - GB No doubt all major powers / players have a war plan all mapped out based on what they think they can predict. Problem is, the allies of Russia...
Actually had it not been for President Obama in the White House from 2008 to 2016 you might have been more accurate than you know . - GB I'm aware. For 13 years in USAF SF, I kept my "drag bag" packed and practically lived and trained in MOPP Level 4. You know, just in case one of the major powers wanted to get involved locally. Not that that would ever happen even once. Or was it twice or was it 3 times?
The major powers MAD philosophy. Mutual Assured Destruction. I don't believe N. Korea nor Iran view nuclear war in the same light as do the major powers. I believe either one of them would go nuclear on one of their neighbors in a New York second. Will the major powers stand down while they fight it out? Last time Israel used F-16s on Iran. Next time F-35s.
And yes, NRA and concealed carry. - KThom Got all your tickets punched there Brother Compatriot. But this being what it is, often times posters misrepresent themselves, so until proven otherwise, welcome aboard. Care to shoot me a PM, we can discuss particulars of your CV. And mine.
Or the Chickamauga Wars [Cherokee <allied with the British> vs America] in the colonial Southeastern states during the Revolutionary War. In the first phase, lasting 1776–1783, the Cherokee also fought as allies of the Kingdom of Great Britain against its rebellious colonies. This first part of this phase, from summer 1776 to summer of 1777, involved the all sections of the entire Cherokee nation, and is often referred to as the "Cherokee War of 1776". At the end of 1776, the only...
Doesn't look like that there is any love lost between John McCain and Donald Trump and doubtful that the two will ever reconcile politically. - GBRK It was publically personal before it was political. Whatever anyone may think politically of McCain, Trumps personal remarks regarding McCain's service were uncalled for. approach things as a CEO Agreed. It's why blue collar workers voted for Trump and not another liberal politician.
Brief introduction: Over sixty, white male, native Southerner, small business owner, Mason and a member of the SCV. In other words, part of the most hated demographic in the country. And I couldn't be happier. - KTHOM Well said. You need to add NRA.
The Antietam & Lake Champlain mentioned in OldSalts link within his post in his thread What the deuce? have interesting namesakes. We all know Antietam was a inconclusive battle fought during the War of Northern Aggression which somehow emboldened Lincoln a few days later to write the Emancipation Proclamation which, for reasons only a Yankee would understand, freed the slaves in the South where Lincoln had no legal authority but did not free slaves in the north where he did.
Why do other industrialised nations pay their CEOs 30 or 40 times the average worker, but the US pays them 500 times. Can that be justified? How? - JT You know the saying, JT, "trust, but verify." And you know the drill. Need some examples / links. Apples to apples comparisons. Start with what is the salary of the average worker in the US? And what is the salary the average worker in other industrialized nations?
Good grief! What are they using for collision avoidance systems? Rear view mirrors? From the link: Aside from the USS McCain and USS Fitgerald incidents, the Navy crusier USS Antietam ran aground dumping over 1,000 gallons of oil in Tokyo Bay in Februray. In May, another cruiser, USS Lake Champlain, hit a South Korean fishing vessel. Midshipmen ought to be encouraged given career advancement opportunities.
Where to begin? No, it was not against the Constitution to succeed from the US pre the War of Northern Aggression. Long prior to South Carolina, Massachusetts threaten to do so. Until the battle of Antietam / Sharpsburg, it was Lincoln's War to preserve the Union [illegally]. Afterward, the Yankee battle plan never surviving first contact with the Confederates, Lincoln revived Great Britain's King George's American Revolutionary War plan to free the slaves upon service to the Crown in the...
It's long been known by Southern historians that New England's boat builders were slavers while business was good. When the importation of slaves was banned in the early 1800s, New England became abolitionists . Quote from the article below: Almost all of colonial America’s slave ships originated in New England. New England and the African Slave Trade https://www.choices.edu/resour...slavery_reading1.pdf Nothing surprises me about Yankee hypocrisy.
Geography may be more to the point. Just how wide are the streets of Florence to accommodate a trolley running down the middle? Will they have to take up the sidewalks? Anybody got a picture of that same location today to show dual lane modern traffic, etc?
Japanese are hometown racists whose defense relies solely upon the good graces of the USA. Strategically, they are barrier islands / speed bumps. Nothing more. To be a player, they need to go nuclear. They might get a shot off but that may be all it will take "to whom it may concern."
