……. “Everything that has come since — our triumph over communism, our giant leaps of science and discovery, our unrivaled progress toward equality and justice — all of it is possible thanks to the blood and tears and courage and vision of the Americans who came before.

Think of this Capitol — think of this very chamber, where lawmakers before you voted to end slavery, to build the railroads and the highways, to defeat fascism, to secure civil rights, to face down an evil empire.

Here tonight, we have legislators from across this magnificent republic. You have come from the rocky shores of Maine and the volcanic peaks of Hawaii; from the snowy woods of Wisconsin and the red deserts of Arizona; from the green farms of Kentucky and the golden beaches of California. Together, we represent the most extraordinary Nation in all of history.

What will we do with this moment? How will we be remembered?

I ask the men and women of this Congress: Look at the opportunities before us! Our most thrilling achievements are still ahead. Our most exciting journeys still await. Our biggest victories are still to come. We have not yet begun to dream.

We must choose whether we are defined by our differences — or whether we dare to transcend them.

We must choose whether we will squander our inheritance — or whether we will proudly declare that we are Americans. We do the incredible. We defy the impossible. We conquer the unknown.

This is the time to re-ignite the American imagination. This is the time to search for the tallest summit, and set our sights on the brightest star. This is the time to rekindle the bonds of love and loyalty and memory that link us together as citizens, as neighbors, as patriots.

This is our future — our fate — and our choice to make. I am asking you to choose greatness.

No matter the trials we face, no matter the challenges to come, we must go forward together.

We must keep America first in our hearts. We must keep freedom alive in our souls. And we must always keep faith in America’s destiny — that one Nation, under God, must be the hope and the promise and the light and the glory among all the nations of the world!

Thank you. God Bless You, God Bless America, and good night!

Don’t blame Stacy Abrams for being unable to do what no other Democrat could do in answer to president Trumps inspirational State Of the Union speech tonight. It’s not that she wasn’t able to do what no one else could do. It’s that she was put in that impossible position by the Democrat party so they share the blame for the lame response that began with Abrams stories from her childhood.

Man Max is a Democrat and a Congresswoman from South L.A. who is literally coming apart about president Trump. The district was Republican until 2002 when it was gerrymandered to allow Democrats to win.  It’s 26% white, 24% black and 47% Latino with 20% of the population below the poverty level, 

Maxine won in 2004 and ever since. California and Mad Max are socialist and Democrat controlled. Of course Hollywood is there too.

It had a car with the all-but-banned Confederate Battle Flag on the top. The cast was, … ready? Gasp! well, lets admit it would not be allowed today. . Oh No! How could it have been so successful, running for seven seasons and 147 episodes beginning 40 years ago, in 1979? It wasn’t about running cocaine across the Southern Border. It was about illegal drinking alcohol, called “Moonshine” or just ‘Shine  back in the day. Their fast car was called “General Lee”, after the Rebel General Robert E. Lee whose statues recently have been attacked by the PC crowd. 

Daisy Duke was successfully played by Barbra Bach, A Mexican American. The car had a Confederate Battle Flag painted on the roof which, it has been announced will be painted over and disappeared. “Jumping” the cars was a big feature of the show. Chargers were launched without drivers by a gas-driven catapult like those on aircraft carriers. Approximately 24 1968 to 1970 Chargers were destroyed in the film which is not seen on re-runs.

‘Dukes of Hazzard’ Star Rips TV Land for Dropping Show: “Can’t We All Just Watch TV?”

“Are people who grew up watching the show now suddenly racists?” John Schneider asks. Yes, yes, ..of course is the PC answer. 

John Schneider is blasting TV Land for its decision to erase from its schedule — due to its depiction of the Confederate flag — reruns of The Dukes of Hazzard, the wholesome show that made the actor a teen idol in the 1980s.

The Dukes of Hazzard was and is no more a show seated in racism than Breaking Bad was a show seated in reality,” Schneider told The Hollywood Reporter on Wednesday.

TV Land confirmed Wednesday that it pulled the show in the aftermath of the June 17 shooting in Charleston, S.C., perpetrated by Dylann Roof, who was a fan of the Confederacy, known in the 19th century for its defense of slavery.

Schneider says his residuals from the show “have never been much to write home about,” but he would like the show to persist because of the old-fashioned values it promotes, such as honesty, courage, chivalry, rebelliousness and the like. Those who seek to malign the show because the famous car it featured had a Confederate flag painted on the roof are missing the point, he says.

“I am saddened that one angry and misguided individual can cause one of the most beloved television shows in the history of the medium to suddenly be seen in this light,” Schneider said Wednesday. “Are people who grew up watching the show now suddenly racists? Will they have to go through a detox and a 12-step program to kick their Dukes habit? ‘Hi… My name is John. I’m a Dukesoholic.’”

Earlier Wednesday, Schneider tweeted a photo of Roof burning a U.S. flag while wearing a Gold’s Gym shirt. “I am grossly offended by flag burning. But … is the Gold’s Gym logo to be considered a symbol of racism as well now?” he wrote.

“I’m kidding, of course, but has it really come to this?” he said in an interview with THR. “Come on, TV Land, can’t we all just watch TV?”

A week ago, Warner Bros. said it would no longer license models of the Dukes of Hazzard car, known as the General Lee, unless the licensees stripped the Confederate flag from the car’s roof, and Schneider similarly weighed in on that decision.

“Throwing this particular baby out with the bathwater seems reactionary and overly PC to me,” Schneider told THR last week. “If the flag was a symbol of racism, then Bo and Luke and Daisy and Uncle Jesse were a pack of wild racists, and that could not be further from the truth.”

Schneider starred in Dukes of Hazzard from 1979 to 1985. He recently founded John Schneider Studios in Louisiana where he is shooting Like Son, a feature film he wrote and executive produced and in which he plays a small role.
