    He was pretty badass when I was a kid.

    I recall the films. It seems he lived life on his own terms and did a lot of good for people.

    Very different politics. The combination would make for an interesting replacement for all those news channel "crossfire"-type shows....

    RIP Billy Jack.

    This was the first movie I ever remember seeing on a big screen. At a drive-in. Not a bad flick. The hippie kids in this film always seemed to have some kind of a creepy Manson family vibe to me for some reason. I guess it was just the time period. All in all, good flick. RIP Billy Jack dude.

    Yes... I remember Billy Jack's "theme song". Who did it anyway? Female vocalist.
    I have not heard it in decades.

    Apparently a band called "Coven" did the Billy Jack version.

    I just listened to it for nostalgia's sake. Catchy little tune. Not bad at all.

    We used to have a little white dog (also R.I.P.) my girlfriend named Billy Jack after this man/show. Thanks guys for the pic and youtube link. I sent those in an email to her. She's a child of the '70's. This will take her back. One of those things that makes your heart warm and broken at the same time.


    Rest In Peace Billy Jack.

    A friend on another forum is an electrician who calls himself 110Soldier.

    I always liked the Billy Jack reference.

    RIP Mr Laughlin
