( Imagine the first paragraph of this post being a conversation with a finely mustachioed, courtly civil war era Southern aristocrat) Imagine if you will, that your hopes and dreams for the prosperity of future generations being taken from you in one fail swoop of administrative bravado. To take that which you have nurtured, and cherished through its gestation, only to smother the infant while it slumbers in it's crib. This is what Mr. Brandon's war of Aggression has done to this gentility..
Contrary to popular belief, the propietor of this blog was not the last person to die on Rodriguez Hill. Though he was a stalwart in our partisan fight, he was the most hardy. I for one am still only half way down the slopes of Mt. Suribachi. Instead of infecting others with my Edgar Allen poe style melancholy. I have stayed off the board, patiently watching the enemy encampment, looking for signs that the war is over.It was not until recently that i began to question the ethics of my own fortitude. Thw hoke hire was underwhelming to me, very underwhelming.Then the pressers semed to indicate a wholesale destruction of what was building into a juggernaut of an offense. I know that some will disagree, but an offense that was ranked that high, and returning almost everyone of its starters, with a qb that has more raw talent than the next two qb's behind him the league combined.

In my absence from these part, i have noticed an overall lack of decorum on this board. this is distressing, this board has been a beacon of light for many ships adrift in the maelstrom. It is not whining to if trading in your Ferrari for a hummer is the right choice.Sure the Hummer can haul a small yacht, but seeing a ferrari fully opened up on the track is much more impressive, even though that ferrari has crappy handling in the snow. The insurgents are now here among you, waiting to see what this is all going to be in the end. You can try to alienate us, or you could draw us out in friendly discourse to show us the error of our ways. For historical context, the War in Iraq was going rather bad with the whack-a-mole strategy, when they began to engage the factions the death tolls dropped. On the great seal of our nation, the eagle in all it's glory clutches in its talons olive branches, and arrows.A reminder that one can peace or one can have war. War has very little benfits, while peace always offers prosperity, it is time to have a return to civil discourse. Afterall this is a blog about the Leaders and the best
