  • Yes, There Is a Coup On in America

    Big Red Clay to DJ Taylor

    DJ Taylor,

    That is one of the best posts I have read on this site in the 16 years I have been lurking and posting.

    My big brother told me again recently of how he was treated at LaGuardia when he came home from Germany after getting out in 72 and your post reminded me of that. These scumbags have been traitors for for close to 50 years. They hold the levers of power in this country and they have to be stopped. This is the final phase of their coup. They gotta be stopped.

    And by the way, welcome home from me and thank you for protecting my freedom. I hold guys like you and my brother
    in the highest esteem. You and the generations of warriors before you are heroes to me. How the Vietnam vets and the military at that time were treated by the Marxist traitors is one of our counry’s greatest travesties.

    Big Red Clay to dfwgator

    That reminded me of a story. My wife’s assistant’s husband (who we hang out with on occasion) is/was a huge Bengals fan. I’m talking a fan that would travel to at least one Bengals road game every year from Omaha. Has loved them since he was a little kid. After the debacle from the playoff game last year he was so pissed that he swore off the Bengals and hasn’t watched them since. Got rid of all his gear and his kid’s gear as well. I was kidding him this spring that he would reconsider once the season rolled around. He hasn’t and says he won’t. I still can’t beleive it.

    Big Red Clay to C19fan

    My offer of an alternate theory: Most of the games in the prime time spots have sucked. I watched MNF this week. I watched about a quarter and a half of the first half. It was a terrible game. It looked worse that those crappy FCS games they have on ESPN later in the season on Wednesday nights. I watched the kickoff Thursday night game btwn the Broncos and Carolina which was an outstanding game. I watched my Chiefs come back and win the following Sunday which was also a good game. Every game I have tried to watch since has been poor. Blowouts and bad play. Along with pissing off your core audience with the kneeling, closed fist stuff, no wonder their ratings are down.

    Big Red Clay to ameribbean expat

    Sorry Deb, the horse is out of the barn.

    I decided today, after hearing that the Republican nominee here in the first district of Nebraska had also crapped on Trump, that I would be voting only the top of the ticket. I was looking forward to getting rid of Brad Ashford but I decided that I will not be participating in this effort. This will be the first time since I went to vote for Reagan in 1984 (my first election) that I have not voted for a Republican for the House or Senate. I will not vote Democrat but I will not give my vote to a traitor.

    Big Red Clay to Brilliant

    I am hoping that if Trump wins and is somehow able to improve the economy that this will have a positive effect on the millenials as far as their political views. As a kid who saw what the 70’s were like (graduated HS in ‘82)opposed to what the 80’ were like and it’s effect on my political beliefs (along with my dad and some friends)I saw the stark contrast of everything sucking and everything being awesome in the 80s and that made me a Reagan conservative for life. Hope that wasnt too convoluted. Seeing it work first hand makes you a believer.

  • Class action against FEMA over nationwide arbitary flood zones (Vanity)

    Big Red Clay to LambSlave

    He just said I was nuts for thinking about trying to take on the evil empire in court. He said kind of what someone else said upthread about the government having the deepest pockets on earth and all the time in the world. It is one of the things that has really peeved me about the Obama administration and all of the EOs. They do things that blatanly violate the constitution, yet it is up to the states, legal foundations or the individual to use their resources and time to fight back. Kind of shoots “of the people, by the people and for the people” right in the ass, doesn’t it?

    I was thinking about this after I posted and remembered that one of the local news stations had done a couple of stories about what happened. It actually affected a couple of other subdivisions besides mine so it got some traction. I called the reporterette and she tried to talk me into going on camera. I decided not to since I was about ready to put my house on the market and I didn’t want people to look at my house and say “oh this house belongs to the fat guy who is pissed at the government about flood insurance” and move along to the next listing.

    Big Red Clay to LambSlave

    This happened to me as well. It was about 10 years ago. It was about 3 months before I was putting my house on the market so I had to get it done. I went and talked to the county surveyor and he said that the Feds arbitrarily decided to change their requirements but didn’t bother to actually go out and do a survey. They were unaware that the developer who had done my subdivision about 7 years previous had graded the entire area up several feet. I had to get the survey thing done at a cost of about $700 if I remember correctly so I could sell my house. All of my neighbors had to do the same and man were they pissed.

    Getting a letter from the Feds telling you that you need flood insurance right before you put your house on the market in a so-so market will definitely up the pucker factor by considerable measure. Reason number 1 million plus why I hate the federal government. I discussed suing them for the cost and the time and stress from their little move but my attorney buddy told me I was nuts.

    Beware if you start this series. It is highly addictive. I got “Killing Floor” on the recommendation of my father in law and couldn’t quit after that. I read all 19 in order over the course of about 8 months and finished about a year ago. I was so happy when the new one came out last September.

    Jack Reacher is a great character and the books are well written with interesting and intricate plots. I would recommend giving the series a try. They are all available on Kindle.

    Big Red Clay to Yardstick

    Your mentioning Albert King reminded me of something I was talking with some friends about recently. After I got into SRV, I got really into blues. Since I was more into hard rock and classic rock it was a change for me. This was my junior year at Nebraska. Lincoln has a really cool blues bar called the Zoo Bar and my buddies and I started frequenting that place. We would go at least once a week. Now in my older years, I look back at some of the guys that I saw back then and wish I would have appreciated it more. I saw Albert, Buddy Guy, Pinetop Perkins, Charlie Musselwhite, Robert Cray, Albert Collins, Matt Guitar Murphy, Little Ed and the Blues Imperials, Luther Allison and Magic Slim who played there several times a year. There were a bunch of others but my memory is failing me.

    What I wouldn’t give to go back in a time machine and see those shows again.

    Gotta chime in on this thread.

    I was lucky enough to see SRV live three times at the Music Hall in Omaha. The first time I was about 10 feet back right in front of his mic. When he came out and blew out Scuttlebuttin and Soul to Soul, I don’t think my jaw came off the floor for 10 minutes. One of the guys I went to that show with (30 years ago, wow) still jokes about that.
    He was sweating profusely and looked like hell,mass quantities of blow and Crown Royal will do that, but absolutely smoked that show. One of my best shows ever.

    I actually talked to him on the phone on Rockline. That was pretty cool as well.

    I saw him about 4 months before he passed with my older brother at the same venue. My brother was also a big fan. When my brother passed (3 years ago last Sunday)we played “The Sky is Cryin’ as the recessional at his funeral. I hope he was smiling down on that one and maybe joking with SRV about the looks on all the old folks faces.

    I was listening to Mark Levin last night on my old school, handy dandy headphone radio while I mowed my lawn. I heard the every half hour ABC news report three times. The spill was the lead story each time and they were all excited about how bad it was. They did not, however, mention even once that the EPA was responsible. It was like it just sorta happened. I assume they think that the LIV will likely mentally blame it on the horrible mine owners or something.

    When I was about 4 years old we were camping with a bunch of my Dad’s siblings and their kids at a big reservoir in Kansas. Our car was parked on a big hill up above the swimming beach where all of the moms and kids (my dad and uncles were fishing elsewhere)were swimming and sunbathing (and in the mom’s case smoking and drinking Old Milwaukee). I wandered away and went up the hill to our old Dodge. It had the pushbutton transmission on the dash. I was obsessed with the car radio and apparently started pushing the buttons on the transmission and got the car into neutral. The car rolled down the hill, narrowly missing running over my mom and Aunt Lois and went into the lake. My older brother (now deceased God rest his soul)pulled me out of the car as it filled up with water. I still hear about that one from my surviving relatives at the family reunions.....

He said that he had disciplined Bo privately at that time and that firing him for the same deal would be like double jeopardy. Knowing the two guys my friend got this info from, I took this to the bank. Not sure if you are from Nebraska or not but for the rest of you out there, T.O. has that much influence even as the ex AD. As we are fond of saying “in Nebraska, Tom Osborne is less than a god but more than a man.”

    I still cant beleive he didnt get fired after the Iowa game. When Eichorst made his announcement that he had full confidence in Pelini, most of my friends and family were shocked. It was like he came back from the dead.

    I still maintain that if there are losses to FSU, Miami and or MSU that he will be dead man walking. Especially if there is another humiliating blowout on a national or semi national broadcast. The Husker fanbase is pretty divided right now and if the turnovers, special teams issues, penalties and defensive weakness manifests itself again, we will be seeing a new guy in 2015.

    I also can’t beleive Bo is not on this list. I think he was sure he was going to get canned after the Iowa game. I know I thought he was gone as well.

    If they are 3-3 after the Michigan State game, the seat will be very warm under Bo’s backside. Fresno State, Miami and for sure Sparty are very loseable games especially if the turnover/special teams issues are not resolved.

    You are definitely correct about the fan base being lukewarm on Bo. Looking back on last fall, I would say my family/friend group was about 70-30 for Bo must go.

    Just a little inside info here for you. My best friend hangs out with a couple of people who are currently and formerly in the athletic department. These are guys whose names you would recognize if you are a NU sports fan.
    They both told him that the scuttlebutt was Eichorst and Harvey were going to fire Bo after Tapegate. They said that Coach Osborne stepped in and saved Bo’s bacon, saying that he had heard the tape shortly after it was recorded and had disciplined him at that time.

    That being said I am sure looking forward to the season. It’s the most wonderful time of the year.....

    Been reading the Jack Reacher series by Lee Child for a while. I started with the first book “Killing Floor” last year and I just finished “The Affair” which is book 16. It is a great series and Jack Reacher is an awesome character
