Standing or Kneeling….My Facebook Post

I have spoken my feelings on standing or kneeling for our national anthem at sporting events and I don’t intend to keep harping on it even through I have very strong feelings that everyone should stand. These athletes are mostly young men in their twenties, some very early twenties and their actions many times reflects that, such as one last week pretending to be a dog and urinating on the field of play….a very child like action. They are still learning about life and because they have gained total financial indepentence so young, they become very reckless. None the less,, all of us have had to learn that we must take responsibilies for our actions, i.e., drug use, abusive to others, obedience of all laws, paying our debts, etc and in general just man-up to life and that there is a price to pay for not doing what is right. The only way for most of these young men to learn about life is to experience the realities, such as “gainful employment”. Empty stands, poor tv numbers, drop in sponsors, lack of hero worshipers, team owners profits drops, etc., will let them know that nothing is forever. So to help them learn about all this fact of life, I will not buy the NFL clothing, buy an NFL ticket, back an NFL sponsor or watch a game on TV where the team does not stand for the national anthem….This is my last post on this subject

Enough words have been said and written about this subject. It is now time for action, or inaction, by just treating professional football like many now treat the mainstream media, as if they do not exist. I can’t see much else that can be done since it seems that, at least half the country are supporting their wayward, very liberal actions simply in the name of the right to protest. Is protesting really a right? It never is when the rights, feelings, and beliefs of others are affected. Now, if they would only protest in ways considered appropriate by the system like writing letters to one’s congressman, even working to elect other more appropriate congressman, and writing letters to the editor, it would be okay because their feelings and grievances are being heard; but to do it in disruptive ways by working to shut down an entire money making industry using ways that the majority feel is inappropriate and even unconstitutional is un-American and disruptive of the entire political process.
