    YEAH, THIS "DOUG PICKLE" WAS ALLOWED ON OUR STAGE AT THE "ORIGINAL BLESSING FOR THE BIKES" IN BALDWIN. HE TOLD OBAMA JOKES AND TURN HIS SPEECH INTO A "REPUBLICAN POLITICAL RALLY". WE AT "PARA-DICE MOTORCYCLE CLUB" TOOK NOTHING BUT FLACK FOR IT. IS THAT WHAT "FOX 17" REALLY WANTS TO BACK? IS THAT WHAT THIS STATION IS ABOUT?
    THESE PEOPLE WILL NEVER BE ALLOWED ON OUR STAGE AGAIN…..

      Really? I was there. It wasn’t a joke. He didn’t want to glorify Obama by using his name in connection with the award he presented as Commander-In-Chief. Can’t say anyone was offended- Most were amused. Maybe all the static that was received was fabricated by troublemakers who heard about it. Maybe you’re one of them?
      Again, I was there, and it wasn’t a joke. Other than not wanting to connect Obama with any honors bestowed on the very military his administration scoffs at, the message was inspiring.
