• As you can see i've updated to version 2 of the software which is a complete change from the old. I am working to get everything back to normal as fast as possible.

    If you notice anything missing, strange or just plain out of sorts please let me know so I can address that. I've tried my best over the past few days to address most of what I see that needed fixing but I am 1 person.

    If you are a member of ANY other sub groups and I have missed that PLEASE let me know and I will get that avatar and subgroup fixed ASAP.

    Again, I thank you for your patronage and most of all your patience.

    Sincerely,

    Andy

That became an instant classic the night he did that.

As a person who actually watched his show "way back then" I may have even seen it the "first time" and didn't realize what a historic piece it would become.

The thing is, even if you've seen it a dozen times, when it shows up a year later on a forum or an email, you'll sit through it one more time.

Too bad there are Americans who may never see it for a variety of reasons.

It never gets tiring to hear people with courage who are willing to support the American way of life publicly. You can find a lot of old timers that vocalized their support of our way of life and our country publicly, it was easy to do back then, it was popular and it was the right thing to do publicly.

AD,

I do love Red's comedy routines. He was one of the funniest men and never used vulgarity at any time. I just felt it was fitting for the 9/11 holiday and helps keep things in perspective.

I used to recite the pledge in school when I was a kid but I think that they do anymore because of cultural differences now-a-days.

Red,

I fully agree with you, there are not enough people anymore willing to stand up in support. I wish it was as popular for the current generations of people to be as patriotic as the older generations. Perhaps someday they will recognize the need and support.

Buck,

I agree 100% he was a wonderful man and his comedy stylings were quite unique and family friendly. He always told a heart felt story during his shows as well. He is sorely missed. Glad I could bring it to the forum us folks to see and share. :)
