Okay that makes sense lol. I'm not saying that to insult you, but I can see now why you might think the way you do.

Yeah, we're weird here about anthems and flags. I don't find it wrong, though some in this country do find being pro america wrong.

But yeah, suffice to say making the choice to kneel at this specific time is a very specific choice not meant to convey respect. It's why so many veterans are especially upset over this, and people with family who served.

So to me it seems more like a breach of etiquette rather than some vile act of desecration. What are they protesting, anyway? Trump?

Best guess is all purpose racism.

They really have done a terrible job of explaining exactly what they're protesting beyond vague "everything" mentions.

Lol the answer is funny. The original protest was over police brutality against black people. Which does happen, but it's not the epidemic they say it is. On the other hand, 500 murders in Chicago so far this year, mostly black on black. This will never be knelt over.

Anyways, the original protest didn't spawn discussions about police brutality, but rather disrespecting the flag and first amendment rights. Then Trump called out some of the players, and then WAY more did the kneeling thing. So now it's just an anti-Trump thing. They are so busy foaming at the mouth over this they do not realize it. So in the end all the attention they garner doesn't go to the cause they claimed it was about and Trump is literally reveling in the attention lol. It's an epic failure.

Oh and the original guy who started this? Is essentially pro fidel castro lol. But he's now held up as some shining symbol. Too funny, I get why other countries hate us.

Figures. Don't they understand that Trump doesn't embody the flag and vice versa? In several years, Trump will be gone, but the flag, the country, the constitution, etc. will remain.

The end game is to remove any token or symbol of unity, and to remove the constitution. Schools now literally debating removing the founding fathers names from schools named after them.

They don't understand a lot of things lol. It's Trump Derangement Syndrome on full display. They'd shave their heads if Trump told them they have a nice haircut.

No surprise, really.

Do you know much about how a board of trustee works? Essentially, it's about a half dozen assholes making the big decisions, and everyone that works or runs the school has no say at all in this. One of those trustee's is usually always the governor.

In CT, for example, both Yale and the University of Connecticut have the governor on their board.

The rest is generally in large part unelected, chosen by other board members, or installed for life.

Bottom line, they have no real check on their power, no direct ties with the schools, and so are free to make the stupidiest decisions based on politics, whim, or whatever, and the people who actually live with their decisions have no say in it whatsoever. Yet they must live with their decisions.

I support this. Sports Channels are the main reason TV services are so damn Expensive. You have to pay for those Overpayed Bigots and A-Holes salaries even when you don't watch their shit.

They can all go Screw!!!

Hell, what about all those special little snowflakes on the left who constantly try to get people taken off the air by going after their sponsors? What about those snowflakes? Hannity is just one guy they have tried to do it to. It must kill them he just beat Maddow in the ratings in his debut at a new time slot(same as her timeslot).

Oh and thanks for the Huffpo link because it reminds me of a story that needs a topic.
