          It’s simple. In America you are free to work hard and be successful. Or you can be a lazy POS who likes to complain. The worst are successful NFL players, making millions playing a game, complaining about their lot in life and disrespecting their fans. Spare us your crocodile tears.

      Angela Putman sounds like a poster child for affirmative action….
      Pennsylvania State University-Brandywine professor Angela Putman recently asserted in an academic paper that the notion “if I work hard, I can be successful” is merely a product of white ideology.
      Angela Putman …..“ideologies within college students’ discourse that are foundational to whiteness.” conclusion…. “meritocracy”, or the belief that people should rise based on the fruits of their own labor, is a “white ideology.” In her mind, this “white ideology” is unfortunately widely accepted in academia.
      Putman believes that it is somehow a bad thing to teach students personal responsibility. Emphasizing a collectivist mindset, Putman puts forth the idea that Americans are falsely “socialized to believe that we got to where we are… because of our own individual efforts.”
      She so wrong…

        Wait! Wait! Wasn’t there another, well-known “all-wise” public figure – from not so many years ago – who told us something similar? Did he actually say “you didn’t build that…” Somehow this “lady’s” take on personal integrity and effort seems vaguely familiar….

        That’ll get someone’s goat and they’ll slip and counter “No – the locked arms means we’re in unity, but we’re in unity in our protest. It’s still a protest, we’re not listening to you at all.”

        Rendering yet another unmasking.

        Yup, it seems like a lot of teams are going to take this dual approach. I don’t think it’s going to go over too well with a lot of fans (or ex-fans as the case may be). They (fans) really need to stop showing up to the stadium in order to drive the point home.

        In my opinion it’s gone beyond disrespect for the flag and has graduated to America’s disgust that these entitled jerks continue to support a terrorist organization (BLM) that promotes violence against the police as well as ordinary citizens and encourages criminal thugs to ambush and murder our men and women in uniform.

        It’s just unacceptable. Keep it off the field entirely!

    Burgess Owens sure sees it for what it is and so do a lot of others. The left has to ruin everything and Stalin would have loved having these players on his useful idiot squad. SMH, they don’t see or care that they’re destroying their own livelihoods.

    More importantly, God be with the suffering in Puerto Rico. Looks like a pretty massive effort to send relief but there seem to be some serious corruption issues. Hope the light is shined brightly on it all.

    I live in Jacksonville, FL and this was the statement released by the Jaguars (if you don’t want to PUKE I recommend you stop reading now):
    “In that spirit, the Jacksonville Jaguars – every one of us – prior to the national anthem on Sunday will kneel to pray for change, progress and equality for everyone who calls the United States their home. We hope others will pray along with us. We are all in this together.

    The Jacksonville Jaguars will then stand together, as a team, tomorrow and going forward, to honor our flag and our national anthem.”

    These idiots just don’t get it. I’m really insulted that they think we are this stupid to fall for this crap. I posted the following reply on their website (which of course the comment is in moderation, I guarantee you they delete it) and they are getting hammered on Facebook:
    “This is such BS. This is just another way of protesting the “supposed” inequality in treatment of blacks by police. You’re not fooling anyone (at least anyone that is thinking). You showed your disdain and hatred for this country and the police last week and your team sided with groups like BLM, that condone the killing of police officers and continue to perpetrate the race-baiters’ lies, such as “Hands up, Don’t shoot”. Here’s a study by Harvard (which is hard Left/Liberal by the way) that destroys BLM and these race-baiters narrative
    http://tribunist.com/news/h
    Never again, NFL and Jaguars. Now, go get the SJW’s that hate your sport to watch your race-baiting a**es.

    I’m am sick to death of these arrogant, pompous SOB’s thinking we will just all forget what happened last week and that somehow kneeling before the game is any better. We know they are kneeling based on lies. By the way, I didn’t link the Jaguars site because I didn’t want them to get any extra clicks.

    Optimism for small and large manufacturers over the last three economic quarters has averaged a record high of 90.87 percent, which is the highest seen in 20 years. It’s also significantly higher than 59.77 percent optimism seen in the first three quarters of 2016.

    The survey found that 64.3 percent of manufacturers said the promise of tax reform would allow them to expand their business, 57.3 percent said they would hire more workers, and 52.2 percent said they would increase wages and benefits for employees.

    This is where it goes the longer this insanity continues~~~Notice what the teacher says..

    Tuesday morning at Orrs Elementary School, 10-year-old Jason Newberry said he and one classmate put their hand over their heart while reciting the Pledge of Allegiance. He said when they did, others in the class called them names.

    “Me and him got called KKK, Nazi, and we just kept getting bullied the whole day,” said Newberry.

    Newberry said it wasn’t until his second period teacher showed them a news clip of NFL players kneeling that he realized the present controversy surrounding the flag.

    The teacher made a poll on paper and passed it out to all the students to see what they thought was right or wrong about taking a knee. The teacher even told students that she would never stand for the Pledge of Allegiance and that if she did stand she would not really mean it.

    A spokesperson for Spalding School District tells CBS46 the assignment was suppose to be a lesson on First Amendment Rights, but they wouldn’t say if the teacher was disciplined for her comments.
    In a letter sent home to parents Wednesday, they teacher wrote the following:

    “I apologize for expressing my views to my students. I recognize that while this was not a one-sided lesson, the topic itself and the expression of my views were not appropriate, my intentions were well-meaning.”
    Parents say they plan to stand with their children Thursday morning in front of the school’s flag poll when the National Anthem is recited over the loud speaker.

MN will be a battleground State but we can’t count on it to flip. If President Trump can hold NC – he will still win even if half of CA moves to the Sunshine State to vote against him. Maybe with the attention on Voter Fraud – FL will be unattainable as well. They cheated big league and couldn’t win it last time.
