   Lonestar Jack posted on Main Page The Lobby  Theodore Roosevelt's words go well for those who won't stand for the Anthem -

"We can have no "50-50" allegiance in this country. Either a man is an American and nothing else, or he is not an American at all." — Theodore Roosevelt

My sentiments exactly.

   MeiDei  Exactly, and why hyphenated identification putting America secondary is wrong. Many years ago we were taught to refer to ourselves as Americans and if necessary - of (fill in nation ) descent. The tribalization of America will lead eventually to chaos - you have to wonder who would benefit from that. Too often we forget Lincoln's (biblical ) quote: "a house divided against itself cannot stand".

   Lonestar Jack posted on Main Page The Lobby  Makes sense to me: NRA support of second amendment;

1 illegally purchased rifle = 26 dead

1 legally purchased rifle = 1 dead criminal

   Fireball27  Anti-gunners are so stupid! They keep saying "you don't need" a large capacity magazine. They don't seem to get the fact our Second Amendment is for being able to fight against the GOVERNMENT, if we ever need to. It is not about hunting. It is about self-defense from anything and anyone.

   Lonestar Jack posted on Main Page The Lobby  I see that some people are having backup problems. It boils done to how much time, money and effort you think insurance on your data is worth. I can't answer that for you, but when I have a computer question one of the best places to get an answer is https://askleo.com/best-articles-collection/ . Somewhere in his vast collection of discussions I can usually find an answer.
Hope this helps

   Lonestar Jack posted on Main Page The Lobby  In response to:"ESPN “SC6” host Jemele Hill sparked a firestorm of controversy for ESPN after she accused President Donald Trump of being a “white supremacist.”

ESPN invited her back because 2 other black announcers turned them down and they felt they needed black announcers.
Utterly stupid, but it reflects the mentality of Disney and ESPN execs,
The thing to do is let the advertisers know that you will not buy products from company who foster this BLM type garbage.

   GO3  Some years ago Jamele Hill wandered off the reservation and wrote a column which actually castigated black men in general and black athletes in particular for being crappy role models, having a high crime rate, etc. All of this was true, but by acknowledging the truth she unleashed hell on herself. Her following columns tempered all of that until she gradually came home and has been writing the standard "us against the man" stuff ever since. She will not be fired because she did as she was told years ago and now she has carried it to her logical extreme. I follow Tulsa's advice and don't watch ESPN or go to their website. If I need sports info, I use foxsports.com. Jamele may fade away over time, but only of ESPN execs have a big change of heart.

   Tulsa  Hello sweet Mei. We had scheduled things and then unscheduled things happened (iows, life ), both here and with family in SC. It's going to be another 6?8? weeks of 'not regularly programmed' living.

We are all in the Lord's hands and I would dearly love prayer for us and our family in SC.

   Lonestar Jack posted on Main Page The Lobby  I am perplexed as to why the liberal news outlets bemoan the horrific killing of all the children by the Syrians etc and yet continue to elect pro-abortion politicians. I suspect they can spin some reason for being for and against the same position.

   Kono  Because to them the will of the mother decides whether the baby is really a life? People who reject the idea of God as stupid are some of the first to ascribe Godlike powers to the human will. (Ability to create life and change sex with the flip of a thought... )

   GO3  For a mother to be pro-abortion she must not only view her desires above God, but she must also think of the child as nothing more than a tumor as an extension of her body rather than a new life relying on the mother for support. She is not only spiritually devoid, but also scientifically ignorant.

   Lonestar Jack posted on Main Page The Lobby  Football is a serious sport in Texas, and yet has a sympathetic side.

Cherokee has a big sign in town (? ) proclaiming 6 man football championships in '73 '75 '78.

Iraan is a city in Pecos County, Texas, United States. The population was 1,229 at the 2010 census. It was named for Ira and Ann Yates, owners of the ranch land upon which the town was built.

The site http://www.nytimes.com/2016/12/15/sports/iraan-high-school-t
exas-state-football-championship.html?_r=2
is about one of this years championship games.

   StormCnter  Iraan is home country for my family. My mother graduated from Iraan high school, my uncle established the town's first bank, my dad had a gas station in 1933. It's a place full of good people and stout hearts. And a very good football team, too. Anyone pronouncing the town's name correctly (eye-ra-ann ) gets a smile. Natives say (eye-ry-ann ).
Thanks for posting this, Jack.

   Lonestar Jack posted on Main Page The Lobby  I just was reading where some GOP'ers want Romney to apologize to Trump for the disparaging things he said during the debates. I ask -- why would any sincere respectable man have to be told/asked to apologize for his actions?
To me it wouldn't be heartfelt. Something like say anything to get the Secy of State job.
Trump does not need this type of snake on his team.

   GO3  I agree. For what Romney did I would let him apologize, then later in the day I'd name someone else as SoS. If Romney's apology was sincere, he's be magnanimous about the appointment and not whine about it.

   Lonestar Jack posted on Main Page The Lobby  Just wondering --
Obama's closest advisor is Valery Jarrett.
Hillary's closest advisor is Huma Abedin.
Who is America's enemy in this "war".

Our enemy is a branch of the Muslin religion.
Are Jarrett and Abedin connected with any Muslims?

It doesn't make sense to me -- so why would anyone vote for Hillary who relies on Abedin for guidance unless they are pro Muslim and therefore pro Sharia?

   Lonestar Jack posted on Main Page The Lobby  Those pseudo sanctimonious people who say the will not now vote for Trump because of a locker room joke are willing to trade a very common occurrence for a liberal socialistic Supreme Court, a corrupt DOJ, etc and forgoing Americanism. I do not get it. How can the two be weighed against each other?

Paul Ryan is the prime example. I suppose he has never told an off color joke or forwarded an off color email? He was just looking for an excuse to push the establishment liberal agenda and he picked a very weak item. He would rather turn the presidency over to a vile mouthed, ill tempered socialist who berates and chastises the very people who are tasked to protect her.

No, I do not see the trade off.

   Lonestar Jack  When the highest elected Republican in Congress does not fully support the overwhelming choice of the Republican electorate who he is supposed to represent I say he has pulled his support. Paul Ryan bleeds Establishment and should be a true Republican and bow out leaving his personal feelings behind. Party first and personal last!!
