Trump wins again

NFL owners have told players to stand for the flag, or not play. Entire Seattle team stands, including Michael Bennett who vowed to sit the entire season. Looks like he wanted the paycheck worse, eh? Jerry Jones makes a public statement.....the Cowboys WILL stand for the flag.

 

And the guy that pretended to be a dog whizzing on a fire hydrant? Probably out for the season, left the field crying after an injury. Maybe that was staged, too.

 

I didn't watch a single snap yesterday...probably a lot of other Americans that took the Sunday off from football, too. Sponsers dropping the NFL....revenue down a couple of hundred million....it's really got to bite to live in a capitalistic country, right? 

Re: Trump wins again

It’s being covered across the news spectrum as a crass political stunt.

 

What has become obvious is that Trump-Pence has become the proprietary Presidency of The Base. That now has to play out on it’s own.  Not much discussion or dialogue can affect it.

Re: Trump wins again

A few Seahawks don't look all that happy.

Sanctions working against North Korea? ICE cracking down on California sanctuary cities? Tax overhaul moving along....plus bi-partisan fix possibly coming on small business health ins costs?

 

Does Stephen Colbert report on any of this, or do you miss out on the real stories? Guess Colberts ratings are way down, too.

 

Stupid American tastes...might as well emigrate to some European country...but which one, eh? Maybe Barry and Michelle will carve out a Kenyan sanctuary.

Re: Trump wins again

The political stunt is the players taking a knee. That started long before Trump and Pence were in the white house. Pence told them before the game if they take a knee he walks.

Re: Trump wins again

A crass political stunt?.....Perhaps.....What do you call the NFL players knelling during our National Anthem?  A "class" political stunt?
