I'm gonna burn your playhouse down. RIP Possum!

When a true genius appears in the world, you may know him by this sign: that the dunces are all in confederacy against him. ~J. Swift

RIP Possum


“The moral and constitutional obligations of our representatives in Washington are to protect our liberty, not coddle the world, precipitating no-win wars, while bringing bankruptcy and economic turmoil to our people.” - Ron Paul

Ol' George Stopped Drinking Today

“Me and the bottle have always been friends, we’ve had a few old nasty fights but the bottle would always win. So when I go to answer that final curtain call, I can hear these words being whispered by all… Ol’ George stopped drinking today.” — George Jones


R.I.P. the Possum

one of my favorites.

* no offense, but i see a couple posts here calling him the "O"possum...while that is correct when referring toan actual Opossum, its not George. He was the Possum. One of the greatest Country singers of all time.

I'd rather have a bottle in front o' me than a frontal lobotomy

Propper pronunciation in the south...

Possum !

Rest in Peace, Opossum


Thomas Jefferson: “Indeed, I tremble for my country when I reflect that God is just, that His justice cannot sleep forever."

Viva La Revolucion!

RIP Opossum

One of the greatest for sure!

The bold effort the present bank had made to control the government ... are but premonitions of the fate that await the American people should they be deluded into a perpetuation of this institution or the establishment of another like it-Andrew Jackson

When I was young, I couldn't stand to watch him sing, but as I

got older, I realized what a magnificent voice the man had and I grew to appreciate him. I like driving long distances and singing along with George. I think I know every song of his by heart now.


George! I grew up on George Jones, Johnny Cash, Eddy Arnold, Conway Twitty, Hank Williams, Sr., Tammy Wynette, Jeannie C. Riley, etc. My parents loved their country music...
