I was extremely proud of the NFL today. Seeing the owners protesting with their teams was the most true American thing I've seen in ages.

The football game that was playing at the same time was really one sided. So it wasn't hard to pull myself away for a bit. Watched some of this new show. In my opinion, atrocity. The creators ditch all the science and sci-fi that made the original and generation worth watching. And follow in the shadow of the new movies. Lots of flashy things to keep play station babies interested. Even the CGI generated sets were over the top flashy. Very low budget. Like I stated in the above post. They knew this show wouldn't make it on it's own. That's why it's on their pay per view. Networks like HBO and ShowTime have to put out quality because pay per view is all they have. Networks like CBS make their profits with add revenue. If no one is watching the show they lose. So they want you pay to watch what they know wont last on regular tv.

Have to agree. I would prefer to watch the series but I'm not about to pay a premium to cbs's random access whatever in order to watch it.

There should be no punishment as long ad the NFL and the individual teams allow it. They are a private busniess and can set forth their own rules for their employees.

With that being said yes it is their right to do this, but it also the right of people who disagree with it to respond as well. Speaking out on it, boycotting games either at home or at yhe stadiums etc. The rights of free speach and expression go both ways and both sides need to realize that there are going to be reactions to what they do.

I just wish people could realize what's happening here and has been for decades. It does not matter who is in office or in Congress. Clinton, Bush, Obama,and now Trump all got into power by telling lies and half-truths to fire up their base to get the vote.  Once in power the ALL work for themselves and will do some small things to keep their minion followers happy. All they are interested in is more political power and money for themselves.

If we want to really make a change and put fear into the corrupt government we need to cut our own puppet strings. We ALL need to come together white, black, gay, stright, trans, religious, atheist. Unify as one against the corruption and baiting by the government. Then and only then will we see change and be a better human race.

Trump day 247
President Trumps call to  fire NFL players if they don't stand for the
National anthem is wrong. It's none of Trumps business to tell people
to fire others. These players are protesting the way the police is killing
black people. Not against the country or our military. Obama had been
pushing for change in  how the police treat minorities. Trump and his
atterney general are returning us to the days of the past where
minorities were treated like second class citizens.

Trump will do anything to build his support. This fight against the
NFL may be a big mistake. Americans love Football. I don't think
they are worried very much about a player not standing up for the
National anthem. In 2011 Trump said it was ok to burn the American
flag. Trumps wife had to remind him to put his hand over his heart
during the anthem earlier this year. So it goes to show it's not about
American symbols, but Trump. We should remember Trump is against
anyone who doesn't support or praise him.

The Trump administration and the GOP are still working hard to limit
voting in our country. Claiming it's all about voter fraud when there
is no evidence of such fraud. It's all about the GOP wanting to win
elections so they can discriminate against minorities and the LGBT.
They know they are in the minority so the only way they can win is
with dirty tricks. If those of us don't get out and vote the GOP will
take and keep control of our country. If they get a conservative majority
in the Supreme Court they can do just about anything they want.
There are many ways to take rights away from people if you control
the government. The bill of rights can be interpreted in many ways.
You might think only the left or liberals want to take your guns. A very
conservative government may decide you don't need them at all. Or
have a right to speak out against them.

Trump continues to bluster against the leader of N Korea. Short of turning
N Korea into bouncing rubble. Threats to do this isn't change N Korea, we
have to use diplomacy. The more talk the better. It would be better to kiss
up to the N Korean leader than killing millions of people trying to get rid of
him. Why should we care if he can brag about winning the ware of words.
We should have left the Koreans alone in the first place. By now they would
likely be more like China with a growing economy, and we would have saved
hundreds of billions and saved the lives of 50,000 UN and American soldiers
in the Korean war 65 years ago.

The GOP continues trying to get rid of the ACA, It's all about saving movey for
the rich, not the middle class. They lie and lie trying to claim it's to save people
money. Most people are insured by employers, the ones that will suffer is the
working poor, and disadvantaged. Canada offers good health care for all it's
people for less money.  That proves we can do the same. They aren't going
broke like the GOP claims we would. Price regulations and preventative care
will cut costs for us all.

I cannot in good conscience watch or promote a show where the people must pay a subscription fee to watch every single episode and where the entire series is only on CBS All Access and no other stations or services.  >:( Therefore, I am "taking the knee" in protest.  >:(
