President Powers, Provost Fenves, Deans, members of the faculty, family and friends and most importantly, the class of 2014. Congratulations on your achievement.

It's been almost 37 years to the day that I graduated from UT. I remember a lot of things about that day. I remember I had throbbing headache from a party the night before. I remember I had a serious girlfriend, whom I later married — that's important to remember by the way — and I remember that I was getting commissioned in the Navy that day.

But of all the things I remember, I don't have a clue who the commencement speaker was that evening, and I certainly don't remember anything they said. So, acknowledging that fact, if I can't make this commencement speech memorable, I will at least try to make it short.

The University's slogan is, “What starts here changes the world.” I have to admit — I kinda like it. “What starts here changes the world.”





You wanna change the world, start by making your Bed.

I placed this here so no flags or stars are given.
Just give a view or read if you want.

A mod here on ATS said to be the change you want it to be. I'm very guilty of being passive aggressive at times. But I do try to hear people out. And I know they do too.

This thread is for reading and consideration.
No need to reply at all. Just read or watch.

No stars?

No flags?

What contact, have you had with the Ukrainian government?

Were no participation trophies handed out?

It's Donald Trump's fault, clearly... he must be impeached!

You're getting a flag, like it or not... commie...

Plenty of people are waiting and willing to make the change they believe in. The reality though is the "horn" that signifies their time to act is when the world falls apart, because for most(especially in america) thinks aren't that bad.

It's sad that that's the metric most are waiting for, but when it comes, boy will it be a shock to many.

That is all....star and flag my post please.

Also, OP, I'm positive you are bill, PM me and we can chat...I have some awesome caddyshack 3 ideas. I'll provide the scotch and I know damn well you are around town enough(saints) that you can drive(or be driven) 20 miles out of your way for a nice dram and comedic banter.

So your not disputing my assumption that you are bill, but rather offering up party favors for our eventual meeting....

Your veil is becoming thinner.

You should really try harder if you wish to avoid the hollywood hammer that is waiting to fall on all those that step out of line of the well crafted and accepted narrative.

Afterall, you do have GB3 coming out soon. No reason to give the nutjobs ammo to haunt you and your family.
