    Glen is a good dude BM! Reading his posts on all kinds of topics over many years has convinced me of this. We may not always agree, but he always has my respect.

    I would gladly be around Glen. For sure he has wisdom and stories to share.
    I mean we all experience life differently and I am sure the old guy has some good stories as he should,he looks nearly 90 years old... but for him to hop on a thread where its purpose I am sure is to mourn the loss of an Icon to many!! Throughout the whole world not just in the States and not just for being a basketball player but for being a role model that walked the talk! and his only input is to come in here and accuse him of a rape allegation that he probably has done no research into and claim that his not worthy of the praise? yeah I'm sure his a very nice guy... thank you thank you very much...

    Now wait. Substantiated or unsubstantiated. My point was that our sins can be cast aside. Did he confess them and move on? We dont know so let us not stomp on his grave.

    I'm with you. Not arguing anything you have said. In the contrary everything you have wrote in this thread i agree with. Specially Glenns comment being very distasteful.

    Thanks for all the good words. Let me say this about Kobe. The massive non stop press coverage over his unfortunate death got to me.

    You would almost think that a world leader of impeccable respect and adoration had passed away.

    That was all you could hear on all the major news networks all day long Sunday and almost nothing else was discussed.

    Now I'll admit I have always had problems with any and all multi millionaire athletes who because of their fame and money get away with almost everything.

    Now I understand that he has done good since that time years ago so fine but now I find out he would kneel if they played the national anthem so it's back to heck with him and all the adoration going on. Sorry if some of you all disagree.

    So that's how I feel and that's my final word on this subject so help me God. Yeah. Thank you, thank you very much

    His wife probably influenced that. Thatt being said, I wouldn't impune him entirely.

    Remember he was a black man in his mid 30s when this crapper-dikk stuff started. I would hope he changed his thoughts recently. I would hope.

    I wonder...

    If the level of news coverage of his untimely death...

    Was the MsM trying to divert attention away from how the GOP, in 2 hours, trounced the entire 24 hours of DIM presentation in the Senate???
    Now I am NOT saying there was anything involved in the crash of the chopper...

    Only that the news coverage was at a high level...
    As if it was meant to drown out other things...


    And of course, we know the MsM would never do something like that...

    You should keep your ugly thoughts to yourself BM. Apparently you're still making unprovoked personal attacks after being warned.

    You never learn unless you get banned again. You're just unbelievable BM is all I can say. You just never stop do you? Thank you very much

    It benefited the Republicans, because it drowned out the NY Times's Bolton Surprise.
    They thought they were pulling another rabbit out of their ass I mean hat, but it was
    just a turd. Sure hate it.

    Amusing...

    How the left keeps trying to muddy the waters for Trump...

    And it seems to help him again and again...

    Whatever is causing this to happen... please, by all (legal) means, continue...

    I am sorry anyone died in a tragic accident. But let's be honest, he was a fool that was good at tossing balls,,,, little more in the civilization dynamic.

    At first I was upset at people with a view like yours, but now I realize that just because you have eyes don't mean you can see...

    Anyways.. im sure it boils your blood knowing that millions of people are mourning the loss of "just a fool who was good at tossing the ball" ....

    Geez I would think if a community was to respect hard work ethic and perseverance, it would be trades men who know that the only way to make it to the top is through hard work...
