So our dear Dukes are once again not on the TV. Due to yankee stupid, and political Correctness, more like the rest of the sheep following the rest of the flock over the next cliff. Okay, again, I'll say this, and the Knytes agree, the fact that all of those people were gunned down, by some youthful jerk, that most likely never watched the Dukes, who wore or showed off our battle flag. So in step, the African/American community get's all in a rush to get our battle flag removed from everything, including a icon, of American life the Dukes car the General Lee. So many who had the flag on their car are painting over it. Talk about deserters. There are 50,000 members of the Knytes-of Anarchy, all of which have that battle flag on their bikes, trucks, cars, and yes even aircraft. Agree or not, the sacrifices that our southern ancestors made in defending our nation from threats and corruption, and Northern oppression, was admiral. So why take away from us something that was good. I've always said Hazzard County is not just a place on earth but a place in the heart and soul. Once infected that loyal community, which are way over 30,million fans around the globe, who watched and still do, the Dukes, will triumph over those that threaten our love for a TV show , but more a really simple way of life, that calls on Biblical principals as in love your neighbor as thyself. If you hate yourself, you hate all that is around you. Many days something from the Dukes will get in my brain that is directly in front of me in dealing with a problem. Uncle Jessie was more than just a farmer and old man, he was a philosepher , and a statesman. Too bad he didn't live long enough to be President. Even he would put away common, bitterness to comfort a dear friend. Many episodes that were told like when Boss Hogg was thinking he was dying, had a shot with Uncle Jessie of a bottle of Shine. Even Boss Hogg as crooked as he was somehow did the right thing. Sure the old General was a car with personality, with a rebel flag, on its roof, but the Dukes was so much more.
I was so impressed with the show and 50,000 others who today have on their cuts that same rebel flag, that in 1979 what had been Pat & Jim's Speed Shop of then Hagerman Idaho, reopened with the studios approval, the original off TV real life Hazzard County Garage. It made sense, Cooter on TV drove a tow truck, I in real life drove(still do) a tow truck. Even my invoices for the business even today have the original signage or typeset showing off the rebel flag and name Hazzard County Garage. Oh yes, Hagerman still calls itself on the fly, Hazzard Idaho. I can even show you pics of the original Boars Nest in near by West-Point Idaho. Still in what is still called Hazzard County Idaho. With that said, and this will fall on the deaf as well as shallow pockets, but hear me. If all of our fans, from coast to coast, wanted to preserve the Dukes and get it back on TV, then lets pool our financial resources, establish a cable/satellite TV channel, and run reruns of the Dukes and era focused TV. This is something that we as the Knytes have been working on for nearly 3 decades since CBS took the Dukes off TV in 1985. The only thing running on national media Dukes based is still HazzardAyre Radio. www.livestream.com/hazzardayre overnight from 11:00PM to 04:30 AM Mountain Standard time, the cry of our southern ancestors and howls of our southern Wolf Pack, is heard. Yet I walk to my mail box here at 96 East Hayden #C202, Evanston Wyoming 82930, everyday and do not see a check or money order of any kind from anybody else except the Knytes in there. If all 30,million plus fans coughed up the price of having a gas hazzardly good time at the Boars Nest, of say $100.00 and sent it to us, we would have enough to buy the rights to the Dukes, put up the only Hazzard County cable/satellite channel-network and there'd be Dukes all the time with never again a threat of removal. Will we see that, probably not just yet, but the Knytes have Hazzard County tenacity and Hazzard County Enginuity and at least on radio there is Hazzard County, and the rebel flag she still do fly at least on our radio networks front page. Our group will always be all Hazzard County, and will continue to champion that cause.
