What the heck is wrong with you? It's Bob Dylan.....not Dillon. I have loved that man since I was 12 (and that's a looong time ago) and have seen him in concert more times than I can count. First time in 1974. I agree. He is the best song writer that has ever lived. Yep, he is. He was in Chicago last night and sad to say, I wasn't there. Concert tickets are incredibly expensive. But if I coulda, I woulda been there.
That reminds me to put my Bob Dylan Christmas CD in my 6 disc changer in my car. I'll listen to it clean through 'till March.

That is very true and I carry that attitude, too. When I was raising my children as a single Mom and I felt like the world was closing in on me, I reminded myself I had an education and a good job, I was in my own home (though I had a mortgage), my kids didn't get into trouble and we were happy and loved each other.
There are many single woman flipping burgers at a McDonalds trying to raise their kids, in a dump of an apartment with kids running the streets because Mom's at work. I was incredibly lucky and I knew it.

1. A Free Constitutional Republic is the ONLY form of government.

2. The right to bear arms is an extremely imortant right, and at no time shall it be infringed.

3. You are right, The South will rise again, and I'll be the first Californian to move to Dixie and fight!

4. Lynyrd Skynyrd is the best rock band ever!

5. Johnny Cash is the best country musician ever.

6. We are all God's children, and Jesus is our savior.

7. I will never sacrifice any of my ideals, no matter who they "offend".

8. Family is always #1.

Outsiders don't get it. F'em, and I don't mean that in a fuzzy way.
You are on to me and where I want to take the thread after all who want to comment or make their list.

2) A constitutional Republic is the best form of government. When adheared to.

3) George Washington is the countrys greatest President. He was the indispensible man.

4) The Colt 1911 is the best handgun matched with ammo in history.

5) A shotgun trumps a pistol for self defense. Unless you are fighting inside a phone booth.

6) Nobody loves you like your Mother.

7) Kids need bounderies and consequences, as well as nuturing and praise.

8) The f150 is the best overall truck in history.

9) You are responsible for your life. Choices have consequences, choose wisely in all things big and small.

10) Happiness is choice.

11) A quality Kentucky straight bourbon is the best liquor. Over ice is the best way to drink it.

12) Led Zepplin is the greatest rock band of all time.

13) The SOUTH shall rise again.

What say y'all and your "absolutes."
1) definately agree with 101%.....

2) again i agree with this!

3) again another one that makes good sense to me as well.

4) Hell Yes!

5) pistol is what used until you get to the shotgun!

6) True!

7) very true and well said!

8) the Dodge Ram. Mopar all the way!

9) very well said again!

10) yes, and i choose to be happy! (well most of the time, when i'm not grumpy!)

11) i like that too, unless i have a really, really ice cold beer!

12) i'm more of a Lynyrd Skynyrd kind of guy myself!

13) i'm hoping it will rise again....
