    Nike makes kneeling for the National Anthem the message of their brand.

    The same day, the ex leader of Iran (Achmablowjob (sp?) praises Kaepernick

    The Iranian foreign minister comes out and states they are in bed with George Soros.

    Ex communist (fact) and Trump hater and ex CIA Chief, John Brennan announces he's rooting for Kaepernick.

    John Kerry has been back and forth to Iran and suddenly there is word he is considering running against Trump.

    George Soros' dreams go up in smoke if he loses the minority vote.

    Trump's popularity among the minorities is growing daily.

    Football season is upon us.

    The midterm elections are around the corner.

    Use the race card to further divide the masses.

    Get Trump to say something that pisses off the blacks.

    This is a calculated and risky political action by Nike and others....
    I Give two shits about Nike, or kapernic and I respect that many a men and women have died for his right to kneel.
    Hell, I don't care what he does, but the correlation described above, calculating and gambling on a costly mistake, That Trump will piss off the black vote, is wrong, I hope. He is egotistical enough, hope he holds his tongue.

    From an email rec'd today...

    You graduated high school in 2011. Your teenage years were a struggle. You grew up on the wrong side of the tracks. Your mother was the leader of the family and worked tirelessly to keep a roof over your head and food on your plate. Academics were a struggle for you and your grades were mediocre at best. The only thing that made you stand out is you weighed 225 lbs and could run 40 yards in 4.2 seconds while carrying a football. Your best friend was just like you, except he didn’t play football. Instead of going to football practice after school, he went to work at McDonalds for minimum wage. You were recruited by all the big colleges and spent every weekend of your senior year making visits to universities where coaches and boosters tried to convince you their school was best. They laid out the red carpet for you. Your best friend worked double shifts at Mickey D’s. College was not an option for him. On the day you signed with Big State University, your best friend signed paperwork with his Army recruiter. You went to summer workouts. He went to basic training.

    You spent the next four years living in the athletic dorm, eating at the training table. You spent your Saturdays on the football field, cheered on by adoring fans. Tutors attended to your every academic need. You attended class when you felt like it. Sure, you worked hard. You lifted weights, ran sprints, studied plays, and soon became one of the top football players in the country. Your best friend was assigned to the 101st Airborne Division. While you were in college, he deployed to Iraq once and Afghanistan twice. He became a Sergeant and led a squad of 19 year old soldiers who grew up just like he did. He shed his blood in Afghanistan and watched young American's give their lives, limbs, and innocence for the USA.

    You went to the NFL combine and scored off the charts. You hired an agent and waited for draft day. You were drafted in the first round and your agent immediately went to work, ensuring that you received the most money possible. You signed for $16 million although you had never played a single down of professional football. Your best friend re-enlisted in the Army for four more years. As a combat tested sergeant, he will be paid $32,000 per year.

    You will drive a Ferrari on the streets of South Beach. He will ride in the back of a Blackhawk helicopter with 10 other combat loaded soldiers. You will sleep at the Ritz. He will dig a hole in the ground and try to sleep. You will “make it rain” in the club. He will pray for rain as the temperature reaches 120 degrees.

    On Sunday, you will run into a stadium as tens of thousands of fans cheer and yell your name. For your best friend, there is little difference between Sunday and any other day of the week. There are no adoring fans. There are only people trying to kill him and his soldiers. Every now and then, he and his soldiers leave the front lines and “go to the rear” to rest. He might be lucky enough to catch an NFL game on TV. When the National Anthem plays and you take a knee, he will jump to his feet and salute the television. While you protest the unfairness of life in the United States, he will give thanks to God that he has the honor of defending his great country.

    To the players of the NFL: We are the people who buy your tickets, watch you on TV, and wear your jerseys. We anxiously wait for Sundays so we can cheer for you and marvel at your athleticism. Although we love to watch you play, we care little about your opinions until you offend us. You have the absolute right to express yourselves, but we have the absolute right to boycott you. We have tolerated your drug use and DUIs, your domestic violence, and your vulgar displays of wealth. We should be ashamed for putting our admiration of your physical skills before what is morally right. But now you have gone too far. You have insulted our flag, our country, our soldiers, our police officers, and our veterans. You are living the American dream, yet you disparage our great country. I encourage all like minded Americans to boycott the NFL.

    National boycott of the NFL for Sunday November 12th, Veterans Day Weekend. Boycott all football telecast, all fans, all ticket holders, stay away from attending any games, let them play to empty stadiums. Pass this post along to all your friends and family. Honor our military, some of whom come home with the American Flag draped over their coffin.

    Please share this.
    Democrats are doing more to destroy our country than the Russians could ever hope to do.

    Wasn't written by a vet. Sounds vaguely like a speech I heard Senator Murray give at a Memorial Day service a few years ago. She would have made some of the same errors.

    Doesn't really matter who Nike supplies uniforms for. Trump will win a second term and continue to right the ship. Nike will continue to make money.

    I care more about the ship being righted than I do about Nike making money.

    First you have to give up. First you have to know, not fear, know that someday you're going to die.

    I tend to think that goes hand in hand.

    ETA: I was talking about businesses making money in a decent economy.

    Then Sasquatch, you should be extremely concerned that top aides are withholding critical information from him to keep him from doing stupid things. How can he even sail the ship, let alone correct anything, without accurate information?

    {Jammer stares at the N on his sneakers, trying desperately to remember where they came from.}
