It wasn’t the same after Barney left. Some shows it looked like Andy didn’t even want to be there.

Loved the show. Opie the birdman showed what a great actor Opie was..

He died for me when he made his commercial for Obamacare.

Too bad, up until then I really liked him.

Barney Fife had to keep his bullet in his pocket. They wouldn’t let him carry a loaded gun. LOL.

Matlock is still on WGN America. He was a good actor, but I didn’t agree with his take on the health care law. He might have been brainwashed when he reunited with Ron Howard and Henry Winkler a few times this past year. In 2003 he was part of a reunion show and in 2008 they did propaganda for Obama.

I still think one of the best movies of all time was the one he did back in the 50s, “A face in the crowd”.

If you haven’t seen it, it’s a MUST!

Good grief.....I certainly wouldn’t wish a person to hell for his political beliefs. He was probably raised as a yellow dog Democrat and never saw the light like my parents and most of my aged family members. Reagan changed that so I’ll just remember Andy Griffith as a wonderful entertainer who brought me and my generation wonderful memories of childhood. RIP Andy.

"Maybe the flower gift costs will instead be sent to the Kenyan bastard’s re-election as donations."

Already being taken care of. Hollywierd libs are donating $$$$$ to 'The One' in memory of Ole Sheriff Andy as we speak.....

In Lieu of Flowers Send Your Money to Obama June 24, 2012 By dana

That’s Right Folks! Obama wants you to put the dic back in dictator! He needs 4 more years to completely destroy what’s left of your life but he needs your money to do it.

If you’re expecting a birthday, wedding, anniversary, graduation or any other special ocassion gift, Obama wants you to tell your loved ones and friends to forget about YOU and make a donation to his reelection campaign.

Forget saving for Christmas for your kids; Obama needs your money. Your children can go without a gift, and perhaps another meal.

And lets not forget your poor dead grandma. Don’t waste flowers on her, send Obama a check.

You would think selling us out to China, the Muslim Brotherhood, Russia and other enemies would satisfy his hungry desire for power , money and control. But lest we forget ….Obama thinks he’s entitled to everything you own, your very being, and now even the happiness of a gift.

At the campaign’s “Obama event registry” page, fundraisers say:

“Got a birthday, anniversary, or wedding coming up?

“Let your friends know how important this election is to you – register with Obama 2012, and ask for a donation in lieu of a gift. It’s a great way to support the President on your big day. Plus, it’s a gift that we can all appreciate – and goes a lot further than a gravy bowl.

“Setting up and sharing your registry page is easy – so get started today.”

Note: Obama wants the monetary value of the gift, he doesn’t want the toaster or vase.

I can only imagine how many brain dead people will actually do this?

What a pathetic LOSER!

He lost me when he voiced his support for the John Edwards Senate campaign. IIRC, he said that was the biggest mistake he ever made.

Sheriff Taylor never wore a gun. I guess that should have been our first clue?

Guess that just leaves Opie, Gomer and Thelma Lou.

That's just what my mom and I came up with earlier today.

That little Opie was the best and so cute too when he was about 5 or 6. Who wouldn’t want a little boy like Opie?
