  • A friend of mine posted this thought on Facebook, and I don't know where to post it... so, I'll throw it out there on the THEE pages.
    THE BLUE ANGELS SHOULD BOYCOTT THE SUPERBOWL THIS YEAR.
    I agree 100%.
    The initial point has been lost, now that Trump had to open his mouth and hurt their little boy, millionaire feelings.
    But, he is right.
    The initial point that Kaepernik started had no relationship to the NFL. But,, he had a point important to him, and probably millions of others.
    He has every right to protest... in a park... on the street... But, not inside the walls of his employer who has absolutely nothing to do with the original complaint. If you have a complaint about the way that a certain people are treated, do you have the right to manifest that protest inside the walls of your employer, or anywhere on your employer's property.
    I don't believe so.
    Our military people serve us, and our flag without complaint, for a peanuts salary. They serve us and that flag. More than anything it represents the servicemen of our country who served in all prior wars so that we could retain our freedoms... and, freedom of speech.
    But, you have no right to voice your complaints in your employer's house, and at a time they are paying you for your work, especially when the employer has no bearing on your complaint.
    That serviceman and the Color Guard at the National Anthem at the Philly game would have made me proud to refuse performing the National Anthem until they have the respect of all present. The players at the game in London, who kneeled during our National Anthem, were standing for the Anthem of Great Britain. Using the NFL as their forum to complain about a social problem unrelated to the NFL.is not right.

        • Well now that the season is over I'll probably just post here occasionally to let you all know how my rock collection is coming along.
          so far I've got a round shiny one and a brown square one.
          "Sir, I was wondering: did you happen to catch the professional football contest on television last night?"
          "No...I didn't."
          "Oh it was most exhilarating: the Giants of NY took on the Packers of Green Bay and in the end the Giants triumphed by kicking an oblong ball made of pigskin through a big H. It was a most ripping victory."
