Movies with or about Marines. - purpledevildog
Every time I see a movie about Marines I always see how long it takes before Hollywood gets something wrong. Some or all of the following things will happen at some point in the movie, that will not happen in real life: 1. Calling a rifle/weapon a "gun". Won't happen. 2. Calling a Corpsman a "medi...

re: Roscoe Lee Browne steals The Cowboys - purpledevildog
I saw The Cowboys in 1972 while a Marine stationed in Millington, Tn. In the theater was probably 75% Marines and the rest sailors. When that scumbag Longhair kills the Duke, there was a mini riot. If Bruce Dern would have been there, I guarantee you we would have strung him up! Anytime there was a...

re: Anyone still watching The Son on AMC? - purpledevildog
Just barely hanging on. Here are 2 reasons why I'm within a RCH of dropping out. Whenever #3 happens, I'm gone. 1. Lets say he was 15 years old while captive with the Indians (1850). How old would that make him in 1915? Do the math; 80 years old! I don't think so. 2. Rattlesnake venom does not w...

Yosemite - purpledevildog
I'm planning a trip for Yosemite late summer of 2018. For those of you that have been there, how long should I plan for. Note: my hiking days are long gone, so any walking would have to be a fairly short stretch. Would 2 days be enough? ...

re: Starbucks = the next Traget..... Issues an apology after backlash - purpledevildog
I can proudly say that I have never stepped foot inside one of those places, never will. There's only one coffee, Community Coffee Dark Roast, brewed so strong that it will make the hair stand up on the back of your neck just smelling it brew. I'm drinking a cup now....

re: Do the sob stories have any effect on you these days? - purpledevildog
My first thought when PRES TRUMP said he was pulling Fed Funding from Illegal Alien Lib controlled cities, was how you would see story after story from the Lib media on how this would hurt the homeless more than anyone. Right out of the Lib playbook....

re: Do y'all remember when the media was treating Trump great during the primaries? - purpledevildog
This has been a Democrat/MSM tactic for years. During the primaries they prop up the Republican that they want to face in general election. Then once he gets the nomination, they turn on him. They did it with McCain and Romney. This time it backfired on them. A blind man can see it, unless you're a ...

re: Denver to Yellowstone Road Trip - purpledevildog
[quote]This is the most desolate stretch I've ever seen anywhere. The road turned gravel for 60 miles. There was no place to stop for 162 miles, and I found areas of SW Wyoming to be just plain scary. You're so high up and can see so far. I'd do it again. [/quote] Yes there where stretches drivin...

re: Denver to Yellowstone Road Trip - purpledevildog
Yes definitely make the drive up through Jackson Hole/Grand Tetons. It's magnificent. But I would also seriously consider driving west out of Denver on I-70 through Glenwood Canyon. I've made that drive and it is absolutely stunning. There are several videos on YouTube with people who have recorded ...

re: Where would Rush be without the 'driveby media?' - purpledevildog
25 years ago I was trying to find something to listen to on the radio. I came across this guy (Rush) expressing my conservative views, that I never heard anywhere in the media. I was blown away. All I could think was, "thank God somebody expresses my thoughts". My next thought was, that he wouldn't ...

re: Washington DC Family Vacation - purpledevildog
I went to D.C. years ago. With so much to see you can't go wrong. However, for me my favorite was the Marine Corps War Memorial. Also something that is not widely known in the civilian world is Marine Barracks at 8th and I. Starting on May 1, every Fri. they have what's called the Evening Parade, fe...

re: Montana Vacation Ideas - purpledevildog
I went to Montana last May and stayed halfway between Livingstone and Yellowstone for 3 days. It was still cold then. Driving Beartooth Highway was on the list of things to do, but the road was still closed. However the drive through Paradise Valley to Yellowstone was absolutely gorgeous. Currently ...

re: Multiple Oregon Football players hospitalized following workouts - purpledevildog
More evidence of the continued pussyfication of America. The way this country is giving up its manhood is unbelievable. Reminds me of the argument I got into with an Air Force weenie during the Abu Grab controversy about what was torture. It went like this with me asking: Do you think sleep depriv...

re: Jackson Hole questions - purpledevildog
Last May I stayed at Luton's Teton Cabin's north of Jackson (check out website with webcam). It's real close to GTNP and YNP. Also in that area besides what's already been mentioned is the old Mormon Row with the famous Moulton barn that's in just about every photo of the Teton's. Also there is the ...

re: USMC 2016 - purpledevildog
I'm 63 years old now, and served in My Beloved Corps from 71 to 75. Every year I see the Commandant's Birthday Message, it motivates the hell out of me, and makes me wish I could do it all over again. Those damn Drill Instructors were right, that we'll be Marines until the day we die. Best Marine Co...
