    You fellas in the NFL had better all stand with your hands over your hearts next Sunday, or your sport is doomed. It is pretty obvious that you don't believe this, but watch what happens next. You are forcing fans to choose between loyalty to lawless, disrespectful, bigoted black players mostly who feel they can do whatever they want whenever they want and the country governed by rules of law and requirements of patriotic loyalty to survive. This is almost literally a choice between a collapsing path to severe division and civil war, or unity in honoring our country and...

    So the local Miami media just reported 150 NFL players acted the fool yesterday. I did some quick math. 53.players multiplied by 32 teams =1.696 players. 150 players divided by 1,696 players = less than 9%.

    Former White House strategist Steve Bannon told conservatives Sunday at a rally that they needn't worry about Democrats but instead should focus on the "corrupt and incompetent Republican establishment." "It's not the Democrats, we'll get to them and we'll beat them, like we beat Hillary Clinton," Bannon said. "But the first thing you've got to get through is a corrupt and incompetent Republican establishment," he told the crowd to cheers.
  • The Flag Code ??

    The Flag Code covers all aspects of etiquette in relation to the Stars and Stripes, including how to behave when the anthem is played. The code is never enforced, however, and there is no punishment for breaching it. So what should you do when the national anthem is played? The code states that persons present are expected to stand and face the flag, if there is one. Civilians should stand to attention with right hand over heart, while military personnel in uniform and veterans should salute throughout. A recent amendment to the code said that military personnel out of uniform...

    Spend a little time with single women in their early to mid-30s, and you'll be grateful you're not one of them. The relationship scene is even more dismal today than when I was their age. All the women want serious relationships that lead to marriage, but many of the men they meet do not. All too often a woman moves in with some guy, hoping they're on the road to somewhere. Two years later, he tells her he's not ready for marriage and kids just yet. Splat.But wait. Hasn't online dating made the mating market easier? Yes – for men....

    These NFL shove-in-your-face protests are getting out of hand and quite childish just to prove their point. Personally, I think most NFL players are doing this just because it's "cool" and a photo-op, ooh how trendy. Just when you think it couldn't get worse, along comes Terry Bradshaw shoving his opinion on the matter in support of their protest, and that's the straw that broke the camel's back for me to watch NFL anymore. I thought the point of NFL commentators wasn't to express their own political beliefs! It must be nice knowing NFL players and sports commentators get paid...

    American Thinker ^ | 9-24-17 | Patricia McCarthy
    It would be so satisfying if a group of patriotic fans to have at the ready a flash mob of singers at a stadium game. If the players "take a knee" to show their disdain for the flag and the national anthem, these talented souls would wait until just before the kick-off and then stand up and belt out the national anthem themselves. Chances are hundreds of those in attendance would join them. Then they would exit the stadium.

    Trump should revisit all Network contracts between them and the FCC to ensure America is getting its fairshare of profits to fund critical infrastructure. Areas to be helped include: building the Wall, defense spending, etc. No more "million-dollar" 30 second commercial spots! All sporting activities that support anti-American activities will pay a special penalty on top of their fees.

    President Trump made this comment the other day. "Rocket Man" should have been handled a long time ago. Well.................. In 1996, the United Nations worked to adopt Comprehensive Nuclear Test Ban Treaty (CTBT) to completely ban nuclear explosions "by everyone, everywhere: on the Earth's surface, in the atmosphere, underwater and underground." So far 163 countries have fully agreed to abide the treaty, according to the UN commission in charge of the test ban, including France, the UK, and Russia. Before the CTBT can be enforced, though, eight countries with nukes still need to sign and ratify the document: China, Egypt,...

  • What a day this has been! (Vanity)

    09/23/2017 12:38:26 PM PDT · by RoosterRedux · 64 replies
    What a day this has been. I live in South Georgia and Irma felled a pine tree in my back yard. Missed the house, thank God. I have been lopping off small branches with my Fiskar Lopper and hauling them to the street for local pick-up but ordered a DeWALT battery-powered chainsaw to handle the big stuff. My new battery powered DeWALT chainsaw arrived last night by UPS. This morning, I read the manual carefully, charged up the battery, and got to work on my tree. After 2 hours of cutting wood and hauling it to the street (in 30...

    Mike Goski stared into the steel casket at his twin brother’s body, dressed for eternity in a deep-blue Marine Corps jacket with red piping and brass buttons. It was like looking into a cruel mirror, Chris’s face, so like his own, distorted by a wound the mortician couldn’t conceal. Alone together for the last time, Mike slipped a knife into his brother’s hand, a weapon for Valhalla, the mythical refuge for fallen warriors. ...“Chris had only one fear that I’m aware of, and it was not death,” Mike said as he stood beside the coffin that held his twin. “He...
