Saw this title in a headline this morning , got me to thinking , what kid doesn't love the NFL image , the NBA , the base ball leagues ? Want your seven year old learning from such entitled fools ?
Go Clemson University Tigers!

Listened to a few positive motivational speakers in my life , too bad that our young are not getting that , without the face-book style BS politics from the teachers , coaches and social media in their face each day. Kids only know and learn what's in front of their eye's , too many parents don't care , too many schools have the pre-requisite liberal agenda .
Their not getting taught enough positive reinforcement .
Appreciation does not extend to 'kissing someone butt", Ahorseback. These are men, not gladiators, who have opinions of their own, and if the NBA or NFL does not like that, perhaps they can find some other men that will 'toe the line'.
Anything for your platform of P.C., for the cause of free speech huh , not matter how biased or inaccurate the message , no matter how it effects little minds . Oh Well ,small minded delivery small minded reception .
And small minded support.
Trump supporters get all a-twittered when their man-child's fee-fees are hurt. It's like their response is on auto-pilot. Trump pushes the tweet button, his loyal followers jump into whatever childish drama is instigated by the offended man-toddler, always on his "side" and loudly proclaiming those who roll their eyes at Mr. Insecure's need for undying love and approval are somehow anti-American.
So predictable, and he's only been president 11 months. I'd be curious to know how many of these meaningless dramas have unfolded during that time? It's ridiculous.
?? Have to wonder where this came from: people were upset about the disrespect being shown long before Trump said anything. Before Trump was elected, before anyone had heard much at all about him. Truly, it cannot be a political thing by the degenerates that voted Trump - I kind of think it has far more to do with love of country and patriotism.
Seems the he one's who "got all a twiitered" are the minor important , bench sitting obstructionist's that have publicly melted down because someone besides a hollow empty suit became the president of America .
You started a thread about it, didn't you?
What about an answer to my OP.? Better cover the kiddies eyes and ears during the games or that bothers you not ?
Sigh....it bothers me not. My kids are grown, but I always taught them that they would sometimes see and hear things that were disagreeable and that if one has strong core values, one can withstand the inevitable onslaught of unsavory situations that occur in the world. That said, I did protect them as best I could from environments and situations that I thought they weren't ready to navigate. Hearing someone spouting irreverence toward our country is something we all should be ablec to deal with. Free speech and diversity of ideas are central to what we stand for, after all. That is why it is so disheartening and embarrassing to see our "leader" engaging in low-brow twitter feuds. We're a better nation than that. He is a low man in a high place.
Happy Holidays, Panther
After checking out the linked article perhaps you will agree with me that predominant segment of conservatives and rightwingers should spend a little time on the psychiatrist's sofa?
http://www.chicagotribune.com/news/opin … story.html
Check it out, Ahorseback, it seems quite accurate to me since you are the one that brings this up.
Unfortunately, the article does not speak to the resentment whites feel toward these players as if they are spoiled ingrates. The game has as its part considerable risk of physical injury for the players that they will live with when they are past their prime, while the big shot managers, white, rake in all of the money without comparable skin in the game. Are we getting down to white conservatives concepts of uncertain masculinity and associated insecurity? Don't want to get too touchy for you here. So, they allow these black men this relative "power" as long as they stay on a leash..... Why else would you make such a too-doo over nothing? The article says it does not matter what the men do, kneel, stand, squat, because as long as any indication of solidarity associated with protest is present, it is automatically disrespectful and consequently, controversial.
Yes, indeed, a visit to shrink could prove most beneficial for America's conservatives...
I like to think that my kids will be impressed that grown men behave as more than just performing seals, but standing up for what they believe and courageously speaking truth to power. Is Trump getting the message?
So many NFL , NBA get a free ride from freshmen to senior year, the cars , the girls , the cash , the camera's and you truly want me to see them as hero's , I remind you , patriotism knows not the skin colors that you use constantly in debate.
But your idea of patriotism and how it is expressed is obviously different from how I see it.
Interesting this ideology of yours has trained some that free speech is fine for the most offensive contortions of said speech but that we somehow censure it for a president that you obviously don't like ? Oh.... the two sides of the coin .
Free speech means I can criticize the president if I want. No one is stopping him from tweeting. He is stupid to keep doing it in the childish manner he does, but criticism does not equal censorship.
You didn't have a problem criticizing Obama, did you?
It simply points to the childish criticism from the Never Trump obstruction , while at the same time blind adoration of celebrities. I think that what's going on in Hollywood, politics and the media right now just about now say's it all . Bunch of opposition hypocrites dodging sex assault charges , at the same time condemning Trump for talking dirty . No wonder the younger generations are melting down at an election loss.............
Everyone's somehow offended and yet no one's learning a thing.
What ever happened to 'Teach your children well ' ?
Not your's in particular but all of them .
And yet, you started this thread because you are offended. Your president is perpetually offended. The latest being his poor fee-fees are hurt because somebody didn't say "thank you." Well, where I come from, one doesn't do good deeds for the kudos and admiration, and for him to publicly feud about it is just more evidence that he is a low, low man.
The rest of your replybis so off topic as to be nonsensical.
I'm not offended , Nor I suspect is Trump , I don't care about Trumps play in this , We are adults with grown kids but the rest of America should be offended by the stupidity of this media delivery of the sports celebrities total lack of any moral or ethical standards. While soldiers serve in Iraq or wherever , these morons in the public eye disrespect everything they / we stand for. You ever wonder how they feel ? Does patriotism mean anything to them , to the left ?
Obviously not .
Anyway, It seems a few here don't mind the brainwashing of their kids , I guess I have no right to say that though , it's no different than in the schools and on campus .
You have to understand there isn't a liberal subject that actually doesn't- eventually- involve cries of "racism ".
But yea , taking a knee means you love the country .......?

This is in regard to the recent controversial political statement made by black NFL athletes, their kneeling during the national anthem instead of standing with hands over their hearts. This was a protest of police shootings of unarmed black men. I am sure that all you hubbers are in the know. This...

Is anyone else sick of the words "politically correct"?Who thought this up, a politician and why are so many people going along with it. We keep changing in America to accommodate more people we don't need. Who else is sick of being told what to say and how to, isn't this going against...

Is freedom of speech compromised in America today?It appears difficult to publish articles pertaining to racism, unless the racist in question is white skinned. It also appears difficult to publish articles pertaining to same-sex marriage if the article is anti-same-sex marriage; even if the...

A bit of a lengthy article by a Harvard psychiatrist in regard to Trump's recent speech before the Jamboree of Boy and Cub Scouts. Hopefully you will find it interesting as well as revealing. I was proud to be a scout once, and I am embarrassed by the President's lack of decorum on this...

How do you imagine America will be after Trump will end his presidency? What the effects you expect?What are the effects of Trump's presidency on America you imagine after he completes his presidency?
