This episode we remember 9-11 and we also discuss what we have forgotten.

Every year on the anniversary we see slogans saying "Never Forget," but it sure seems like some have forgotten who our heroes are.

Can we recover?  I hope so, but the only way will be at the ballot box.

Every year on the anniversary we see slogans saying "Never Forget," but it sure seems like some have forgotten who our heroes are.

Can we recover?  I hope so, but the only way will be at the ballot box.

Welcome to the lead sheet podcast. I'm Jeff Donnel and I've been a licensed firearm dealer for 13 years. I'm passionate about supporting our second amendment rights and in this podcast i'll talk about that whole top is related to the second amendment as well as i might flip in a sports story or a movie update as well Well, welcome to episode 38 in the live sheep podcast. It is Sunday, September 13th, and I'm recording this and it's a beautiful Sunday here. football is starting. my chiefs, played on Thursday night and one, and, my Cowboys are playing tonight. new coach. So we'll see how things go. with that, the hopes are high here in Dallas. So we are very hopeful of a big season. on another note, mine are stars are rocking in the Stanley cup playoffs. They took a three, one lead. Last night. I was watching that game. Against. Vegas golden Knights. so it's a big sports weekend here on no cross country for my son. We did have our first, why they prepped all game. we won that. we have 45 don't we play six man football. And so if you don't know anything about six man football, it's, it's, it's something to watch. if, any point after the first half one team is up by 45 points, that it's kind of a mercy rule. these games can get, quite crazy. and we, we're up 48 to nothing. we would play. As school, that's new to play football. And so, this is just kind of a pre pre a conference game that we were, playing this weekend. So. some big happenings, like I said, it's the September 13th and. What that is to me, you know, we, on Friday we had the, 19th anniversary. Of. nine 11. And, you know, as, as with anyone that was, you know, old enough to remember EV you obviously remember exactly what, where you were, what you were doing, how you heard about it. And a lot of the things that, proceeded to happen in the following days and weeks. you know, we always list. You know, internet streaming. Wasn't a strong, so I'll miss at my office trying to get news updates on the radio. And trying to tune in my, my radio. in the, in our offices and getting blocked, we finally pulled a. TV out of our training room that, was hooked up to a VCR. Yes. A VCR that we've used to just play training tapes. And it was not hooked to any type of cable, satellite or anything. And it just had rabbit ears and we're rolling it around the office, trying to find someplace where we can't. get, get some, reception and we pretty much watched it through the. The snow and static of it. But, you know, I remember those moments. I remember when the second plane hit, I remember watching the towers fall, and just being in disbelief and it was. Amazing. But then the other thing are, are. I take away from that is I remember the days after. In the weeks after and how this country came together, how, you know, represented us were praying in Congress and there was no. boy, cots or protests for separation of church and state, are. Policemen and our firefighters were. recognized as the heroes that they are, our military was lifted up. The, I remember, you know, when the, the, the iconic photo of the two firefighters. Raising the flag in the. Rebel of, of the, of the towers and months, all of the dust and dirt and smoke. They're raising the American flag. And at that time, nobody was kneeling. Nobody was burning and nobody was protesting. there were no black lives matter protest. It was just one country with one cause. And. We were United. We were Patriots. We recognize the greatness of this country. We knew the greatness of the country. We knew that we could overcome this setback that had cost so many lives and brought fear to the. The. Our country onto our soil. And. You know, while it was a tragic time, it was one of great unity. And then you look back and you look at things today and, you know, Whenever you were not 11 comes around. There's always, you know, it's, it's. The the tagline, I guess, is always, never forget, you know, they'll show the picture of the towers and never forget, you know, it'll be, whatever it might be in and just say, you know, Never forget. And I think that is a sentiment that. goes along that we don't want to forget. You know what happened. We don't want that to just become a.in history. And so many other events has ha have happened, but, We have forgotten. We have forgotten. We have forgotten what our country. Used to be. and what, and it even seems to believe that to wanting it to be that, makes you some sort of an evil person because our country. This, this, this, Belief that our country is, is evil and the root of all the problems around the world. has just infiltrated itself all through our, society. I just don't understand how we've gotten to this point. How we've gone so far? there was no. When those police officers and firefighters were running up the, the. stairs and the twin towers, as people are trying to come down, there was no call for that. They were racist and that they were, just, you know, Bigots and, and, and. The more systemic racism in there? No, they were heroes. They were recognized as such and we lost many of them. For there because of their heroism. But now today, somehow 19 years later, we are. You know, these people are the dregs of society. They were the worst human beings in the world. That they can't be trusted and we need to eliminate them. We need to defund them and. I don't understand how we got here. I don't. And, but one thing I do know is that Joe Biden is not the answer to get us out of it. and that it may seem like. you know, when, if, if, if Trump wins, you know, the riots and things will probably go on, But these are just political. And as soon as once they have no cause to that, they're only, they're not. They have no cause that they're really standing behind, You know, and not change it. This morning, I got up and I just checked my phone. And. A news alert came that there are two Los Angeles County Sheriff's deputies that were ambushed yesterday. And are fighting for their lives in the hospital and protestors have gone to the hospital or outside the emergency room. Yelling that they hope they die, but they, they effin need to die. These are two. Los Angeles County. Sheriff's deputies. How do we get here? What is wrong with people? What is wrong with this world? It is. This is horrible. And so, you know, As we look at things, you know, again, you know, People may not like Trump's demeanor. But. He loves our country. And it's loving the, our country, which right now seems to be, if you love our country. Then. There's something wrong with you that you're evil because this country is evil is the perception that people are having. And. That is not where I want to be. That's not where this country is. That's not how we were founded. That is not how we got here. This country's been through too many things. but you know, if historically, you know, Great. countries great republics fall. they only run or rule for so long until we might be on the brink of collapse and we may become just a second. class nation, being controlled in the rule by the Chinas of the world and being subject to, to them. In their economies and. that may seem crazy, but we may not be that far away from it. So, again, I wanted to recognize nine 11. I wanted to, I, to not want to forget. What nine 11 meant I was there. Not there, but I remember. And it had an impact on me then it still has an impact on me now, anytime I think about it and. I love this country. I love the flag will never kneel for the flag. It is something to be respected. This country needs to be respected. We need to, to be proud to be Americans and not. Forget that that is what we need to not get that we are Americans and we need to be proud. So, okay. In close to the election. get the word out, vote. Put up your Trump signs, do whatever it takes to spread the word, because this is crucial that we win this election.
