    All I'm saying about the others is that they were worth millions upon millions before they even got the stupid TV show. When I said they sold out, it's because they have now allowed their face to be plastered all over everything from dog beds to eyeglasses to ****ing UNDERWEAR WITH HEARTS. That's why I call them sell-outs. The old man was worth like 43 million dollars before the show even started. Why be so greedy that you allow your face, and your brand, to be slapped all over everything, just to make more money. They have more money than they will ever possibly spend.
    Marketing, baby...marketing. Why make 40 million when you can make...4....hundred million. By all accounts the money is being well spent. I looked up their business particulars and they employ several thousand people. Im sure theres a few kids in the Philippines getting a buck or two making those Uncle Si socks.

    I followed the standard retired military routine. 20 pounds, beard, and a new motorcycle.

I can even see maybe one of them making that change. But all of them? Nah. Not buyin' it. They had a reason for making such a big change in their appearance.
    I'd be afraid of getting my beard caught or stuck in the bolt or slide of a firearm. just sayin'....

They already had it. It's greed, pure and simple.



    A&E are just as bad, because I truly believe the whole dust-up interview with GQ magazine was planned. A&E was in on it, GQ was in on it and the Duck Dynasty people were in on it. Otherwise A&E would have KEPT them off the air. It was all a ratings gig for A&E, and GQ did it to sell more magazines. And guess what? It worked. The 3 of them are laughing all the way to the bank.
    Yeah, don't they ever look into a person or group's history before they put these shows on the air?

    Dog the bounty hunter was another.

    Actually it didn't. Their ratings were on the rise prior to the interview, they took a huge nose dive after the interview. Im not saying the interview had anything to do with it but it most certainly did not boost their ratings

    Dog the bounty hunter. What a douche. As Bugs Bunny would say, "What a meatball. What a maroon."
