The paradox here is that it was not Trump who politicized this but Colin Kapernick for refusing to stand for the National Anthem as a BLM protest. He is and was so divisive because of that that no team in the NFL would even consider him for a starting or back up role. And now that Trump calls out the kneelers and sitters, the owners who refused to consider a divisive Kapernick criticize Trump for (in a way) backing their initial decision to keep him at arm's length for the same reason. Its getting so confusing, even for that Cornhusk lisper Sasse.

Great Pieces, Clarice. Who needs donuts with their covfefe when you have Clarice’s sweet summary of the important stuff. BTW, Frederick starts his Confirmation process today. 5 meetings leading up to the rite on November 6th. Yeah a Monday. Busy Bishop.

CH, Lurking as I fall asleep, POTUS can federalize the guard anytime he wants but for this trivial exercise he won’t.

Off to dreamland. Georgia is on a roll, ND may win (who knows) and Florida is in a fight finally with Kentucky. Can't keep up and need to rest the body. Slaap lekker, tot morgen.

Will someone send to the NFL owners a ladder, please.

CH, The problem is that most of those flyovers and colors presentations are by national guard detachments under the control of the state governors. So, Texas, Florida and Georgia, yes. California, New York and Washingon State, no. But it would once again demonstrate who the real Americans are and who the traitors are.

Oh, and by the way, he will have sucked in the McCain's and Schumer's of the world because I flat guarantee it, ESPN and CBS and Fox Sports have already interviewed them for the pre-game discussion. Eejits on display.

Trump is a genius in creating controversy that doesn't want to be exposed to the general public. Tomorrow on CBS, Fox and ESPN, football fans across the country will tune into not a discussion of how the Eagles running game is superior to the Giants defense but rather a full scaled one-sided debate on Trump's remarks. I cannot think of any of the panelists who will defend Trump or his point. Why? Because, none of them are geniuses or understand the nuances of such a important discussion. Well, maybe the coach at VaTech baskedtball or the coaches at the academies (and even those the way things are going are a dead certain) does but he is in a minority. I see this being a topic they don't understand will make Trump stronger not weaker. Its almost admitting that our product is not really worth watching because we are idiots and don't appreciate the gift of that product to my livelyhood. Professional sports death spiral.

daddy, And in that Brit crowd were all the plane watchers with their huge zoom lenses for their cameras, right? Yeah, Duxford is an airman's dream with Imperial, American and The Fighter Collection. I think in WW2 they flew B-27's out of there along with 51 and 47's for escort.

MM, Also confusion on your 6:15 you directed to me. I think you mean't someone else. -peter, We're back to Port Jeff on Thursday, so I am getting closer to you, but not by much:) Decided to come back to Riverhead on 25A instead of LIE and its was packed with pumpkin families visiting the farm sites. But it is still much more pleasant than that carbunkle of a highway.

Considering that the NFL and NBA are basically all black leagues it is not surprising they are trashing Trump since the MFM and Zero's resistance have promoted him as a KKK-White Powerist. He's decided for some reason to create this tension and I wonder why now?

Perhaps our coach at Mercy should recruit T.D. Squirrel because at least he scored. We were so inept at a 35-0 loss, the Mt. Sinai coach started his 2nd team in the 2nd half and only ran plays up the gut. In the last 3.5 minutes they took 4 straight knees and we concede with 49 seconds left. Lost our QB and best receiver. Lots of water breaks. It was 85F all day with a pretty intense sun and no cloud cover. Then I have to come home and tune into the Cincy v. Navy game and see the middies dominating 35-24 into the late 3rd quarter. And I will refuse to watch NFL this week. Instead I'll do a double Premier League soccer and rugby then a little Tour Championship. I think it may be time for everyone to get to know Aussie Rules, Union Rubgy and next week is the President's Cup.

Off to Frederick's football game in Mt.Sinai (no, not that one but the one in North Shore, Long Island). Go Monarchs!

Sports as a forum for protest is nothing new but lately it is getting out of hand. Nowdays, these guys make millions not hundreds of dollars. Find ways to shoot off their fingers or even be involved in shooting others. Get zip for domestic abuse and other trangress ions while playing and then have both ownership and their unions protect and protest for them. They used to be role models for kids playing sports in school and college. Now they are role models for gangbangers and antifa.

This will give you a sense of what daddy will be watching today. It's from the flyover of July 2017 at Duxford and the Fighter Collection. https://www.youtube.com/watch?time_continue=107&v=ZTyQINjOicM Those machines saved the UK during The BoB.

daddy, If you go into the village try the Plough. Very nice old pub. Love the Imperial War Museum there. Fantastic history and great gift shop for books.

We have lots of friends in Barc and they to a person oppose independence. It's a Marxist/Leninist led effort by the most radical of academia and socialist labor activists. Spain is right to show force and nip in the bud now. These people make antifa look like Howdy Doody's peanut gallery. daddy, where is BoB reenactment - Biggin Hill?

This guy Mueller once headed the FBI? And he can't make a case of Russian collusion without bringing in a Ukrainian PR effort during the Obama administration. He is spending your's and my Money grasping at straws. Fire this guy and his band of Dem donors and activists now. What an embarrassment to our laws and protections. Cold Sore was more right than provocative with his Sig Heil salute. All is missing are the black shorts and brown shirts.

He only does this to get his phony persona on the MFM TV shows. What a silly old man. And this is what we have in the Senate. He is not the only one. They get there and they think their shit doesn't stink. Except for a very few they are all the same in that institution. I refuse to call it a club.

MM, Sometimes if not most Thomas Wictor is throwing shit against the wall to see what sticks. Example, in your link he suggests that Rods of God shot down the Sukoi 22 but it was a Navy Tomcat fighter pilot. The first air to air takedown in 18 years. If he is who he says he is he would know that. Anyone on any military or vet board or site knows that. How come he didn't? His credibility with me is now nil.
One of great devolutions of our Constitution is the purposeful intrusion of the Federal Government in every level of public, and even private, education. Although, I am suspect of an Article 5 convention, If it was only concerned with the 10th amendment, then I am for it. Acknowledge its abuse by the Federal Government, endorse it with unequivocal language and restore to the states and local governments their authority not contained in the Constitution. In fact, I would love to see Betsy DeVos as the last Secretary of Education.
Bringing over from last thread: All 50 state Medicaid directors are opposing C-G, so I don't think Collins is going to vote for it if she wants to be governor. McCain is no surprise because he is a duplicious,vengeful, spiteful coward who's time in the Hanoi Hilton is more urban myth than legend. I have had his cellmates and some widows in my home under the influence which leads to all kinds of revelations. Trump will need 3 Dems so Pence can untie it. Actually, 4 if you count Rand Paul. C-G amendment will not even be voted on without those guarantees.
