    One small snippet from your Link:
    There has to be an inherent understanding when you enter into any public position of power that this is what happens. People are going to take shots at you and it’s incumbent upon you to absorb those shots. Maybe you respond diplomatically, but you maintain a level of respect and dignity. What you can’t do is just angrily lash out. Can you imagine if I lashed out at all my critics every day and belittled them? I’d lose my players, I’d embarrass ownership, I’d embarrass myself. Pretty soon I’d be out of a job. It’s a basic adult thing that you learn as you grow up: People aren't always going to agree with you. And that’s OK.
    I agree, Kerr was spot on. I have no idea how to link a you tube video, but Kerr for 3 in the final seconds of the Bulls 5th championship made him a hero here in Chicago. Kerr is a first class kind of guy. As a Chicago sports fan, I am so proud of his statement. His example should be followed by others in the gop who feel the same.

    My father was ww2 vet. He was in the battle of the bulge and d day. Stand for the flag with your hand on ur heart. Thank god we live in the usa. We have become accustomed to soft living and entitlement. Kind of like rome in its last days. We need to appreciate all the things we have in life.

    My father was also, and we learned to stand for the flag at an early age. but that does not mean everyone has the same values or judgment I might have, and they have their own reasons for how they deal with issues that bother them.

    In my father's time, men always took their hats off when they entered a building/room. Women wore hats and dresses to church and school. Women would not be caught without makeup or nylons. Times change.

    We are now able to see in real time what happens to POC.

    We are now learning about black history. Who knew about the incredible atrocities? We sure did not learn about them in school.

    People want to keep pretending there are no issues. Kind of like closing eyes during the Holocaust time.

    I am proud of people standing up or kneeling, shall we say.

    It truly is a spiritual experience to see the unity.

    In the USA we are free to choose whether we stand, sit, kneel, or jump up and down and scream while the anthem is played. And no tweet from Trump can force anyone to stand.

    Agreed.

    Also, some Christians take the 10 Commandments seriously and will not worship false idols, such as a flag. We don't/can't throw people out of the country for that, either.
    FACT: Only 19.41% of total US Citizens made the effort to place their vote for Trump, and he won. GET OUT AND VOTE!

    In my view, folks are using the dead bodies of soldiers to shield themselves from a tough conversation. I'd say that is pretty f'n disrespectful.

    I wonder how common were confederate army flags, symbols, swastika tattoos and other things that represent the enemies of the UNITED STATES that just happened to be displayed by the revelers at the ALABAMA MAGA rally. Talk about dissing Old Glory.........

    Instead what will matter is water, food, and survival. Fighting to defend our land no matter what race or color our skin is.

    OH OK, please wake up at any time.

    If a missle went off everytime NK made a empty threat every piece of land would be bombed. But also remember rather than ignore the baby of a countries tantrums, DT keeps challenging them.

    Also, have you read the sticky?

    I assume if so, it would be another piece of america you want to restrict POC from being equal in
