Calm down there fella. Those players have a right to protest. And if taking a knee offends you so much turn off the tv. If you didn't know taking a knee is actually a sign of respect in many aspects of life. Freedom comes in many different forms, this one just happens to upset you. Sometimes freedom of speech can be a bit frustrating for me when people use it for hate speech. So I understand being upset about someone using their American freedoms.Diamond Lake Charlie;n613355 said:I don't know, what do you consider being off the coast. As for Ted Nugent, I don't know what he did and the only reason I think people know about it is because of who he was. I am pretty sure you can fill a foot locker with the stuff you have heard that he did and I really don't care. Personally if I am going to hold a grudge I would rather hold a grudge against Hanoi Jane.But while you are smoldering because I really am not interested ask you self this question, how many others that were not famous did the same or worse. Because of some bitter memories and who he was at that time YOU carry on the hatred from and for somebody else. If you cannot stand him that is your problem, however if you take a knee during the NATIONAL ANTHEM then you not only insult me, but your father and every other veteran either living or dead. However I am proud to have served so you could have the right to insult all of us. Now if you would like to return a smoldering scathing reply help yourself, I just don't care and I have no intention of reading it or getting involved in something ridiculous.
This is a favorite of mine, actually the only one I have found that I like.It is called Heal with Time and it goes like this.
I am many years older now
And the emotions should be gone
But, it seems there is no escape
From my time in Viet Nam
Mostly, I remember going there
with Patriotism and Pride
Then coming home again
Scorned and pushed aside
Not that anyone cares but just got back from wickiup and crane prairie. I don't surf the Web when camping. Bass were caught!
