    Everyone should watch this at least once a year!!

    PLEASE, post a "I watched" or "go to h***" response.
    I'd like to see if we've become so UNPatriotic that it doesn't matter anymore. Or why its not the GREAT video it is.

    And he alway's signed off with,-"Good night & God Bless". One great man.
  5. He was awesome at his craft and even more importantly - he was an awesome, sincere, human being.

    One of my all-time favorite comedians. I have his shows on DVD. I watch them 2 or 3 times a year. Funny man! [​IMG]

    I visited his home in California. His second wife Darlene is a very nice person. They had Arabian horses, six car garage and big studio for his painting. Not pretensious in the least.

    Quote:This video has always touched my heart. Red Skelton did this from the heart, not that he was trying to "up" his ratings, stir up controversy, or anything other than speaking from his heart...he really meant what he said. As a young child he was my favorite comedian...I just didn't realize at that time how good of a man he was.

    was an awsome video but the best part was the last few minutes. Sad to know that his last few lines have become true. We have lost all meaning of the pledge and the constitution. Its about time for people realize this and get this great country back on track. We need videos like this to remind us.

    He is right. Completely if you listen to his every word. The words "under god" were added in his lifetime. And caused so much trouble. As they should have.

    They had no business being there and have no business there now.
    I recite the pledge of allegiance, my children recite the pledge of allegiance, but I don't say the phrase under god, because it doesn't belong there.

    When it was put in it literally separated the words one nation from the word indivisible. And so it did.
