    So.... "fake news", now it's "faux patriotism"... Progressives sure like to attempt to control the narrative and delegitimize anyone who doesn't agree with them, huh? o_O

    I did try that, it didn't work. Finally found it though, had to go through Facebook - he has it posted there too.

    Good response. I wonder if she considered taking him up on the offer? My guess is no.

    I'm pretty sure my wife would have gone o_O

    I know I would have but that would be a given. Going to shot show with Mike I am sure would be a totally different experience :)

    He's a class act. One of the few humans I really admire these days.

    All my jumps in the Army were at night ... 'Cause I was sooo scared I kept my eyes closed! :p
    Well not really ... But makes for a funny joke.

    Back to topic ... I have never heard of Mike Rowe before.
    But he seems like a class act and a neat guy to meet.

    My bet is she'll never even see it... once you p*ss a Leftist off the only thing you can do right in their eyes is kill yourself, and even that won't satisfy them--I have seen them bring personal destruction on members of their own movement for such high thoughtcrime as simply being RELATED to an "Enemy Of The Cause," and had to help a former local GOP Senate candidate's daughter (who's a schoolteacher I've worked with before, who generally trends center-left) defend herself against such.

    Few things open one's eyes to the intolerance of the "Tolerant Left" like being one of them and having The Movement turn on you...

    Had to make sure I was thinking of the right guy. He did a show about dirty jobs.
    And actually did them. Just about any you could imagine

    He is most well known for his show Dirty Jobs (I dont think it is on netflix anymore) and has since been going around and to congress trying to get more support for traditional trade jobs like welding and machining where the US is loosing experienced workers. There is too much pressure on kids to rack up huge college debt and then work at starbucks because it turns on a degree in philosophy or creating writing isnt really going to get the great jobs. He's a good guy

    I hear ya bolus about the dare I say over emphasis on college degrees that may have a limited job market.

    A more balanced focus on college , trade schools and apprenticeship programs is needed in many high schools today.
    Thanks for the heads up on Mike Rowe.
