    Best podcast ever! Please bring Mike Ritland back sooner than later. I remember him from the Warrior Dog Foundation back in 2010. Thank you for your service, your mission, and your brutal honesty. You should be part of the military team that advises the White House.

    It got me to laugh at the end of the podcast because I got suspended a lot in school for punching the kids the made fun of me for my name or my personality. Then I got punished at home for standing up for myself. And to this day, if I stand up for my opinion, I'm dumb or I get told I'm treating others like there stupid. And those people are the ones who run to be crybabies and can't think for themselves 😂 awesome content this morning 🤙🏼🤘🏼 Yee Yee

    • Chan Miller
      Chan Miller

      I agree with you, see all the old great barn being let fall apart and rot away because some people don't see the value of them. To maintain them is not hard and to renovate them isn't either. 👍🏼🤘🏼🤙🏼

    So glad to hear other voice what I feel. I'm an veteran, as was my Father, and his. I raise my children the way I was but society is becoming much more seductive to them. We as parents raise our kids and put them on the path hoping and praying they stay that way as adults. Thank you both, great way to start my Monday.

  • Amy Seidl
    Amy Seidl

    Awesome podcast! Love that Mike is so on point about the problems of society today. I swear I said similar thing back as a preschool teacher when suddenly we were told we could no longer give a child a timeout and only to redirect attention. So there began the no consequences to the actions. Also no more giving awards or winners and losers of games because everyone needed to be awarded or everyone is a winner. Ugh! It is a crazy time in our world and I dislike the direction. Nobody can agree to disagree and still be friends its just insane. Everything you say may offend someone and if not then Statues, Flags will. It’s nuts!!! What are we just going to erase history now and is our government going to let it happen? We are destroying ourselves here now it seems. Race wasn’t this divided in the 80s or prior. I do believe what he is saying about entitled mentality and why things are as they are now. I hope he gets his word out there more to initiate a change before it’s too late to fix this mess we are now in. I’m sharing this!!!

    Awesome to see Mike on the show! He’s a badass! He’s right about the takeovers, Canada is headed there with Trudeau and his liberal clowns at the helm. We are losing our rights day by day it seems and there are lots of us who are growing tired of it more and more and if he stays in power much longer there could be very bad backlash.

    Great podcast, as always! So interesting, thank you for keeping us entertained Monday mornings! I agree, political correctness seemed to set off a domino affect. There are American soldiers fighting for our freedoms but we're taking them away from ourselves within our own homeland. 🤯

    I live in hope that we will have a ‘new’ normal. The ‘old’ normal was not the best it can be. We must not fear change, sometimes things change for the better. God’s will be done. If we come out of this with more thoughts and respect for others, it might be a very good thing. Bless you all Jane xx
