Here's an idea...

Post by TimGDixon »

Since i am unable to ever respond to the dribble from the little pimple faced momma boys on ihub i will respond to their posts here. And then you can respond if you like too, and we will just have a lot of fun beating up on them. You know they read everything here - let them eat cake.

Responding to much of what is posted on Ihub would be a waste of valuable time. It's OK if it's to counter harmful or misinformation.

Don't sink to their level and don't lose focus of the big picture.

Not everything - just those things that need correcting. Like the BS about us being a covid promo.

I also found out that responding to them simply encourages and further propagates negative comments and spread of mis-Information.

Ignoring them is the best way to make them go away. Let’s simply use this forum to have our discussions.

President Trump encounters ass wipe bashes day and night and he ain't afraid to reply. Did it in 2016 when he ran and won. Why because he doesn't take the crap and tells the peps that hate him what he thinks. More CEO's should fire back like Mr Dixon

Thank you toe-fat (love that name). I will always fight for my company and shareholders.. i'm the son of a Marine who landed in the first assault wave on Tarawa, and Iwo Jima, he fought on Saipan, and Tynian, and Guadalcanal, Okinawa, almost every island the 1st Marine Division fought on he was there. Then in 1950 he found himself at Chosin Reservoir surrounded by 300,000 communist chinese soldiers, the Marines killed almost all of them at great cost but the chinese and NKA were decimated. No, i don't back down and i don't give up. Thank you all for encouraging me.

This is what they were transporting - their own dead. Marine's don't leave their dead behind.

Every young man needs a hero and he was mine. At the age of 16 he rode with the Texas Rangers as a badge wearing lawman and in 1939 at the age of 17 he joined the Marine Corps and served until 1962 fighting in the South Pacific and Korean War, but remained in active reserves until 1972. As children we did not know what he had done or where he had been, but we always knew he was very brave and to be respected. Here is a little piece of history.( i have a little free time waiting on others to wake up lol)

In 1954 the US Marines returned to Iwo where my Father had fought 9 years previous. The photos you see were taken on the day of dedication to a monument erected on Surabachi and Dad took those photos. The wreath that you see was made here in Oceanside and flown fresh to iwo for the ceremony. That hand writing is my mother's who lived to be 93.

Here are just a few others taken. He buried a lot of his friends on that volcano.

And finally here we are in Texas 1964 living as civilians for the first time since i was born. I'm the little fella second from the left next to my oldest sister. And now you know it all. My family has been here since the 1700's. My father's side arrived in 1701 and my mothers side 1745. My 6th grandfather on mother's side fought in the Revolutionary war being only 16 years of age with his six older brothers and all seven fought and lived through the war.
