Trump and his cabinet/buffoonery- Get your bunkers ready!

Recommended Posts

The specific rule pertaining to the national anthem is found on pages A62-63 of the league rulebook. It states:

“The National Anthem must be played prior to every NFL game, and all players must be on the sideline for the National Anthem.

“During the National Anthem, players on the field and bench area should stand at attention, face the flag, hold helmets in their left hand, and refrain from talking. The home team should ensure that the American flag is in good condition. It should be pointed out to players and coaches that we continue to be judged by the public in this area of respect for the flag and our country. Failure to be on the field by the start of the National Anthem may result in discipline, such as fines, suspensions, and/or the forfeiture of draft choice(s) for violations of the above, including first offenses.”

Okay, well I'm not Quaker/Mennonite/Amish.  I'm Anglican, if you want to pin me down denominationally.  Though I mostly ascribe to evangelical-free more than anything.  

 

My view of relationship between state and faithful isn't so far off yours.  And I'm relying on Grace, not works, when it comes to my sabbath observance.  I'm here, on a Sunday, with my family. 

 

But I still dislike the protests towards the flag.  

By denomination I’m United Methodist, but that is a very broad umbrella. I share fellowship with several Anglican clergy that I went to school with. When I stepped down from the pulpit, several urged me to join them. One of my favored theologians is from Church of England, N.T. Wright.

 

And if I rely on anything but grave then I’m wrong, that said if my faith and my works aren’t in concert with one another then somethings wrong. 

 

For me the flag is a symbol of the nation in which I live. I do not ascribe emotion or devotion to it as I once did. So for me to kneel is fine, even if I don’t join that protest personally.

He's a Trump supporter in a city that would be very angry with him if he sided himself with Trump.

 

I suspect he is torn. Then again, Kraft is also a Trump supporter and personal friend and he spoke out. So yes, cowardice is a fair charge.

So I see woody Allen owner of the jets.

Does it also state that every game must use the largest, most gaudy of flags before the game?  First time I saw it, it was cool.  Now it’s a dick measuring contest of who can be the most patriotic.

 

 

And then there’s the flyovers.  Can’t inagine that it’s exactly cheap to fly 4 fighter jets over the field at the end of the anthem.

 

Maybe they should just roll tanks onto the field and fire off some shots instead.

I'm not gonna hold your hand but instead of assuming, educate yourself on the broken promises during his campaign speach regarding the Armenian genocide  recognition. Apparently, every year during his presidency a blind eye was turned!

Want to talk about Obama's administration, start a new thread. This thread starts with the word Trump.

I don't understand the countries added. North Korea? They weren't even coming here in the first place. This is like banning Steph Curry from visiting the White House. And telling regular Venezuelans they can't come here is pretty bad. Not really going to be winning hearts and minds with that one.

The hypocrisy of Kushner and private email and Hillary drum beating is to laugh. 

 

Where's the FBI investigation into that?

 

Mueller is on it. :silly:

If anyone knows a past administration that didn't lie and break some promises I would love to learn something new. We are talking politics, right? We demand lies.
