There is video of Hershel talking about his multiple personalities. I remember watching it in a discussion about whether dissociative identity disorder (multiple personalities disorder) is a legitimate disorder or simply created as a result of Media influence.
The ranting and just out there claims by Hershel should make a few good ads.

Herschel Walker single handedly won three Super Bowls for the Cowboys.  Why aren't people more impressed?

What about Walker's "His Pillow" company?

Donald Trump needs a cart to get around the course, so not *exactly* like him.

In most countries, people with mental illnesses or deficiencies are provided with proper and cost-free health care.

In the US we elect them to public office.

Who among us hasn't claimed to own a business that don't exist? Or be a valedictorian in college?

I bet he also created and owns Vandalay Industries.
 
2022-04-13 12:58:48 PM  
the video of him explaining how he's been misconstrued should be the ultimate disqualifier.  Complete gibberish.  That should be on a loop on every TeeVee in GA until the election.

Walker specifically went into the USFL because he hadn't played enough years at Georgia to be eligible for the NFL draft.

Where does he come up with this shiat?

Honestly how hard would it be to put 15 seconds of that gibberish with the words "this man cannot be our senator" at the bottom?

He lies. He's republican, and that's what they do.

He ran for 8,000 yards for the New Jersey Generals and helped Trump win not only a Super Bowl but three World Series as well.

Similar statements pop up again and again, going back several years. And even today, the website for his company-H. Walker Enterprises LLC-lists "textile fabrication" among its areas of expertise, claiming the "HWE and Renaissance Hospitality provides major hotels, restaurants and hospitals with custom fabric bedding, drapery and window treatments."
It's unclear, however, what business Walker is referencing, because Renaissance Hospitality dissolved last year. Walker also isn't on the articles of dissolution; his friend and former business partner, George Mappin, is.


If I had to guess, I'd say that his friends got him to finance their business ventures in return for a share of the proceeds, and he doesn't know or care what they did with his money as long as he got paid something. But it's also possible that they're just stealing money from him and, because nothing's on paper, he doesn't even know.
 
2022-04-13 1:14:49 PM  
If by "successful businesses" that means being able to open a puddling cup on his own in less than an hour, then one day Walker might get there.

One day.

Yes, but in a poll of Herschel Walker vs. Football, Football is ahead by 30 points.

Vote for Football.

Football is in favor of low taxes, low unemployment, and establishing the run game.

It farking kills me that Georgia actually elected an intelligent, thoughtful, charismatic and wise man like Raphael Warnock, only to (probably) replace him two years later with this drooling farking brain damaged moron.

I swear to god.  It's like they are messing with us.

"I started this little [inaudible] drapery company, where I still have about 250 people that sew drapery and bedspreads for me," the former Olympic bobsledder told an audience at the University of North Texas on Feb. 10.

Um. Wut?
 
2022-04-13 1:22:57 PM  
Is he talking about OCP, Choam corp, and Weyland Yutani? Those wonderful mega corps are the future.
 
2022-04-13 1:25:27 PM  
FTA:

In a 2020 interview, Walker claimed he ran "the largest minority-owned apparel company." He added that "we do drapers and bedspreads" and "have 280 women in Greer, South Carolina."

Sean John and FUBU don't exist? Both are significantly larger than what he's claiming was the largest minority-owned apparel company.

He finished seventh in the two-man bobsled at the 1992 Winter Olympics

As the founder of Weyland-Yutani Corporation, he has been successful in his business enterprises - many of which do not involve aliens. Also, he is not capable of remembering what he had for dinner last night.

It's like a bad SNL skit.

So Herschel Walker has a "friend" who bilks money from him for his businesses, pats Herschel on the head and tells him he's a great business man. Right?

Warnock is a servant of God...which to far too many mouthbreathing Dawg fans means he is a servant of Herschel Walker.

In a weird way I almost want Walker to win just to see what an absolute catastrophe it would be and then if I had the supernatural power to rewind time take it all back

There's a misconception that R's are going with Herschel Walker to chip away at the African American vote.

They're going with Walker to get the bubba Dawg fans in North and South GA to vote for him. And yes, just because a lot of them are racist doesn't mean that they won't vote for Walker - after all, if both candidates are African American, you might as well vote for the guy who won the 1980 championship for the Dawgs and is Trump's favorite.

What doomed Loeffler against Warnock is that, aside from the MAGA base sulking over Trump's loss, she was a complete poseur, and even Cletus in the mountains knew that - a Buckhead elite acting like she was from Habersham County. Walker won't have that problem.

Maybe Abrams has the strength to pull Warnock over the edge in November, and I think she does, but it's not going to be easy. GA may have gone blue in 2020, but it's not blue to the point of it being a cinch for D's yet.

I'm hoping this turns out to be a Sarah Palin situation, where he looks good on paper but people quickly reject him when they realize that he's literally brain damaged.

If any of you are still on Facebook, please follow Warnock, Walker's and Abram's campaign pages. Sooooo many trolls that need to be knocked down a peg. It's like shooting fish in barrel. If you enjoy arguing politics here, at least do it for a good cause.
