What do you think about the NBA/NFL players who kneel when our national Anthem is played?


Is it to show their disdain for the lawmen of our country when they enforce our laws? Or their disrespect for our country? Are they teaching our children to disobey our country’s laws, teaching them there should be no consequence for breaking these laws? Were these players taught the same thing, were they taught to disrespect this country that allowed them to make mega-bucks to play instead of work, and now pass on that disrespect to our children?

    Cristina, thanks for your opinion. Yes this is a good idea, especially if they do not want to pledge allegiance to our country

    a country that is giving them so much.

    Blessings my friend

    "After he was deferred, the bone spurs went away." What a wonderful miracle healing (LOL). If so, fine, but I find it hard to believe.

    Police brutality, Killer Cops, Racism, a song that was written by a slave-owner who fought "against" the abolition of slavery. A Florida Cop was recently arrested for sexual assault of a little girl. How much cause do U need?

    Maybe better: Mike Tomlin said before the Steelers played Sunday that players would remain in the locker room and that "we're not going to let divisive times or divisive individuals affect our agenda." Amen! Tomlin for President.

    The average person who claims to be a patriot doesn't care about systemic racism. They don't care about veterans either. If they did organizations like "Wounded Warriors" would not exist, and veterans would not be sleeping in the streets.

    Believe it or not my good friend Jonathan Livingston was a Jew. He charged ahead during one of our protests and was beaten severely by the pigs. My friends forget this inconvenient truth. I slung him over my shoulder and raced to safety.

    People would take pictures, though and that might be good to spread on social media - a prayerful attitude. However, I know a few local veterans taking a knee during the anthem in some instances & saying that they are praying for USA. Can't hurt

    Those football players probably wouldn't even be on that field playing if it wasn't for that American flag and the National Anthem.

    Shyron I like your sentiment but it is fake news about breaking the rules. A manual suggests it, not the rules. And it for sure is not mandatory. But the fans and viewers make the ultimate decision and it is not going well for kneelers.

    I feel that my humanity and understanding of racial injustice has as much to do with my sexiness as it does with my educational background. Sexually frustrated people are more prone to be racist and lack a general understanding of social issues.

    Paula, you said this so much better than I ever could. I watch the games and see the blatant disrespect for the song that represents our country and I am sickened by it.

    Blessings my friend.
