you're just jealous cause he was so much better at the one-liner game you keep vainly flogging - plus there was substance and poetry in his...Let’s see how he does with the possibility of losing his life with bullets flying in his face?
Doesn’t take much in the way of guts to put a belt around your waist... I do it every day.
apparently someone jumped in near the beginning of this tribute thread and called him out as a bum for not fighting in a war without mentioning fly fishing at all. strange indeed.How come there are 5 pages on Cassius Clay and the wars we were in. No NFR on the title and not one thing mentioned about fly fishing. This is a little strange.
This is pretty much what they (the Russians) did in Afghanistan. They eventually had the sense to just leave. Which is more than we have had.As long as this thread has gotten off-track, I'll help. The travesty at the end of WW2, letting the Russians carve up Eastern Europe and forming the Soviet block, started the 'Red Scare'. This ended up morphing into the Domino Theory that was the basis for us involving ourselves in 2 civil wars in Asia.....forget about the CIA screwing up South America. Imagine if you will that British Columbia wanted independence from Canada. A civil war ensues. China and Russia come to support BC. They don't know the language, history, topography or ideology. but they keep pouring their most valuable resource...young men...to be slaughtered, with no vision for the future. Absurd right? Should sound familiar at the least.
A bum that has raised 50 plus million dollars for various different charities. How much have you raised? His charitable work in the USA and around the world is well documented. I wish there were more bums like him.He might of been a good boxer but in my eyes, he is still a bum. This is my opinion on the subject. We are all entitled to give our opinions on said subject.
