  1. Folks, some of you have asked if we were trimming our forums since there are no sports at the moment. We’re going to keep everything open on the forums to provide a sense of normalcy here. It’s our hope Gator Country can be a place of comfort for you during these crazy times. Be safe my friends and take care. -Ray and the GC staff. GO GATORS IN AL KINDS OF WEATHER!

    PS. If you happen to find yourself in tight financial circumstances with regards to renewing here please reach out to us. We’d be happy to help sort it out.

    You would think they would at least pick an adult with a smidgeon of leadership skills. But I guess none could be found on the media-brainwashed planet.

    Whether or your agree or not, motivating hundreds of thousands of students in dozens of countries around the world to engage in mass demonstrations to stem global climate change would be considered a significant accomplishment by some folks.

    The "get off my lawn crowd" is cracking me up. They bitch about kids being lazy or self centered and they bitch about a kid who is out there trying to get people involved.
    Truly pathetic.

    Ah, the bubble that the media lives in seems to be getting smaller by the year. When will it pop? Will anyone notice?

    Look, everyone gets a pass on their own fake time cover now since "You" was the person of the year in 2006.

    Everyone lives in a bubble to some eztent. I'm at a loss to understand your apparent objection to Time's choice. You've just been snide without explanation. Anyone can do that.

    And who should know more about marketing gimmicks without real substance than Donald Trump, Jr. All that he has to do is look in the mirror.

    I like how you put people into “crowds”. Is there really any difference between yourself putting people into the “get off my lawn crowd” and the ones “who bitch about kids”? Both are gross generalizations and both are very narrow minded.

    I’ve got news for you, most older people are not in the get off my lawn crowd, and most younger people aren’t lazy and self centered. Are there grumpy older people who long for “the good old days”? Sure. Are there younger people perfectly happy being lazy and self-centered? Again, yes.

    I sincerely hope that your identity politics doesn’t prevent you from realizing this.

    I mean, Hitler won the cover too. It's not a lifetime achievement award.

    Wait, what rules? Is it spin or corruption? Do you have divided loyalties to your ruler?
