It’s beyond insulting to think YOU HAVE THAT POWER at all too!?? You don’t know all blacks and you sure don’t speak for them too! Just cause you may have similar skin tone doesn’t mean YOU ARE AT LIBERTY YO SPEAK FOR OTHERS!!!! You are going down!!! ALL OF YOU ARE!!! Take head from Cali as you see the red GOING MUCH HIGHER THAN EXPECTED!!!! We came to the polls TO SHUT YOU UP!!!! This November we will see just how nasty and corrupt the liberals are willing to go FOR A DYING HATEFUL NAZI FASCIST MOVEMENT LIKE YOURS! You resist all day!!! WE WILL BUILD A REVOLUTION! When you have dug your heals in your cesspool... we will gladly leave you there while we strive to the top. ENJOY ANOTHER 4 YEARS OF PEOPLE DISMANTLING YOUR POLICIES AND LOVING EVERY MINUTE OF IT.


But it is fair for athletes, while working and on payroll, to subject paying customers to a display that is objectionable to many Americans. Freedom of speech says nothing about consequences. It also does not apply to work. You are being paid to do a job, not promote a personal agenda. Do it on your own time.
The response of the Eagles to an invitation to the White House was rude, inconsiderate and a slap in the face of the OFFICE of the Presidency. As a team, they deserved to be disinvited.
Also they blew a perfect opportunity to air their grievances, face to face, with the President. But the pettiness of being spoiled and the Socialist influences on our society that obliterates RESPECT for anything except government control, their way, has caused this rift.
Always remember, the PRESIDENT ALSO HAS A RIGHT TO HIS OPINION and as our duly elected head of State, has an obligation to influence the direction of our country.
JUST LIKE OBAMA DID.



STFU. I’m black and I know my people are still being sold in parts of the world. We had a first black President and he along with wife made and are making it worse for us. This is the most non racist country on earth and us blacks are free from slavery because of the Republican Party and the NRA. The Democrats founded the KKK and the now control the modern day plantation through division and welfare. F off you are nothing more than a black slave owner you POS. Stop lying to your own people so you can collect your money your Uncle Tom MF. You are the problem.


When Black people wake up and stop enslaving themselves to the Democratic party then perhaps people will stop lecturing them, they vote for the very party wo enslaved and who has kept them downtrodden. Education is the key, and we are not talking about the new text books the Democrats buy for the inner cities each time they get into office that completely skip the part where it was the Republican party and the party of Lincoln not Jackson who freed them and who has fought for them to have the right to vote, and to free and equal rights, the only thing Democrats did was when they knew they had lost, Johnson Tricked you. Your still tricked.


Look for those of you who still think this is about a flag or a the Anthem...its not. Trump wanted a crowd of football players to surround him on the stage to make him look important. Only a few was going to show up. Trump decided to cancel the few who were coming to support him. No other President in history has started arguments with football players like Trump has. Trump wanted to buy a football team a few years ago and the players refuse to play for him if he brought a team. Trump is pist off because they not showing him respect. It aint got nothing to do about a American flag or the National anthem. Not even the military which he never served in. Anybody who made Trump look foolish he trys to retaliate against them period.


Trump have not paid taxes in 18 years, but he love our veterans where do Trump and his supporters think veterans get their paychecks and benefits from. TAXES, TAXES, TAXES, TAXES,TAXES,TAXES, PAY YOUR TAXES TRUMP AND THEN COME BACK AND SAY YOU LOVE THIS COUNTRY, GET YOUR NOW WIFE TO GET A JOB AND PAY TAXES TOO. AND 65 MILLION PEOPLE DID NOT VOTE FOR YOU PUT THE FOOTBALL PLAYERS IN THE 65 MILLION IN OTHER WORDS THEY DIDN'T VOTE FOR YOU, QUIT MAKING IT ABOUT THE FLAG, MAKE IT ABOUT 65 MILLION AND COUNTING, THAT JUST DON'T LIKE YOUR A_ _.


A POEM WORTH READING
(Author unknown)

He was getting old and paunchy And his hair was falling fast,
And he sat around the Legion, Telling stories of the past.

Of a war that he once fought in, And the deeds that he had done,
In his exploits with his buddies; They were heroes, every one.

And 'tho sometimes to his neighbors, His tales became a joke,
All his buddies listened quietly, For they knew whereof he spoke.

But we'll hear his tales no longer, For old Bob has passed away,
And the world's a little poorer, For a Soldier died today.

He won't be mourned by many, Just his children and his wife.
For he lived an ordinary, Very quiet sort of life.

He held a job and raised a family, Going quietly on his way;
And the world won't note his passing, 'Tho a Soldier died today.

When politicians leave this earth, Their bodies lie in state,
While thousands note their passing, And proclaim that they were great.

Papers tell of their life stories, From the time that they were young
But the passing of a Soldier, Goes unnoticed, and unsung.

Is the greatest contribution, To the welfare of our land,
Someone who breaks his promise And cons his fellow man?

Or the ordinary fellow, Who in times of war and strife,
Goes off to serve his country And offers up his life?

The politician's stipend And the style in which he lives,
Are often disproportionate, To the service that he gives.

While the ordinary Soldier, Who offered up his all,
Is paid off with a medal And perhaps a pension, small.

It is not the politicians With their compromise and ploys,
Who won for us the freedom That our country now enjoys.

Should you find yourself in danger, With your enemies at hand,
Would you really want some cop-out, With his ever waffling stand?

Or would you want a Soldier - His home, his country, his kin,
Just a common Soldier, Who would fight until the end?

He was just a common Soldier, And his ranks are growing thin,
But his presence should remind us We may need his like again.

For when countries are in conflict, We find the Soldier's part
Is to clean up all the troubles That the politicians start.

If we cannot do him honor While he's here to hear the praise,
Then at least let's give him homage At the ending of his days.

Perhaps just a simple headline In the paper that might say:
"OUR COUNTRY IS IN MOURNING, A SOLDIER DIED TODAY."


You graduated high school in 2011. Your teenage years were a struggle. You grew up on the wrong side of the tracks. Your mother was the leader of the family and worked tirelessly to keep a roof over your head and food on your plate. Academics were a struggle for you and your grades were mediocre at bestseller . The only thing that made you stand out is you weighed 225 lbs and could run 40 yards in 4.2 seconds while carrying a football. Your best friend was just like you, except he didn’t play football. Instead of going to football practice after school, he went to work at McDonalds for minimum wage. You were recruited by all the big colleges and spent every weekend of your senior year making visits to universities where coaches and boosters tried to convince you their school was best. They laid out the red carpet for you. Your best friend worked double shifts at Mickey D’s. College was not an option for him. On the day you signed with Big State University, your best friend signed paperwork with his Army recruiter. You went to summer workouts. He went to basic training.
You spent the next four years living in the athletic dorm, eating at the training table. You spent your Saturdays on the football field, cheered on by adoring fans. Tutors attended to your every academic need. You attended class when you felt like it. Sure, you worked hard. You lifted weights, ran sprints, studied plays, and soon became one of the top football players in the country. Your best friend was assigned to the 101st Airborne Division. While you were in college, he deployed to Iraq once and Afghanistan twice. He became a Sergeant and led a squad of 19 year old soldiers who grew up just like he did. He shed his blood in Afghanistan and watched young American men give their lives, limbs, and innocence for the USA.
You went to the NFL combine and scored off the charts. Your hired an agent and waited for draft day. You were drafted in the first round and your agent immediately went to work, ensuring that you received the most money possible. You signed for $16 million although you had never played a single down of professional football. Your best friend re-enlisted in the Army for four more years. As a combat tested sergeant, he will be paid $32,000 per year.
You will drive a Ferrari on the streets of South Beach. He will ride in the back of a Blackhawk helicopter with 10 other combat loaded soldiers. You will sleep at the Ritz. He will dig a hole in the ground and try to sleep. You will “make it rain” in the club. He will pray for rain as the temperature reaches 120 degrees.
On Sunday, you will run into a stadium as tens of thousands of fans cheer and yell your name. For your best friend, there is little difference between Sunday and any other day of the week. There are no adoring fans. There are only people trying to kill him and his soldiers. Every now and then, he and his soldiers leave the front lines and “go to the rear” to rest. He might be lucky enough to catch an NFL game on TV. When the National Anthem plays and you take a knee, he will jump to his feet and salute the television. While you protest the unfairness of life in the United States, he will give thanks to God that he has the honor of defending his great country.
To the players of the NFL: We are the people who buy your tickets, watch you on TV, and wear your jerseys. We anxiously wait for Sundays so we can cheer for you and marvel at your athleticism. Although we love to watch you play, we care little about your opinions until you offend us. You have the absolute right to express yourselves, but we have the absolute right to boycott you. We have tolerated your drug use and DUIs, your domestic violence, and your vulgar displays of wealth. We should be ashamed for putting our admiration of your physical skills before what is morally right. But now you have gone too far. You have insulted our flag, our country, our soldiers, our police officers, and our veterans. You are living the American dream, yet you disparage our great country. I am done with NFL football and encourage all likeminded Americans to boycott the NFL .


10ºThe true gospel is the good news that God saves sinners. Man is by nature sinful and separated from God with no hope of remedying that situation. But God, by His power, provided the means of man's redemption in the death, burial and resurrection of the Savior, Jesus Christ.

The word "gospel" literally means "good news." But to truly comprehend how good this news is, we must first understand the bad news.

As a result of the fall of man in the Garden of Eden (Genesis 3:6), every part of man" his mind, will, emotions and flesh have been corrupted by sin.

Because of man's sinful nature, he does not and cannot seek God. He has no desire to come to God and, in fact, his mind is hostile toward God (Romans 8:7). God has declared that man's sin dooms him to an eternity in hell, separated from God.

It is in hell that man pays the penalty of sin against a holy and righteous God. This would be bad news indeed if there were no remedy.

But in the gospel, God, in His mercy, has provided that remedy, a substitute for us "Jesus Christ" who came to pay the penalty for our sin by His sacrifice on the cross.

This is the essence of the gospel which Paul preached to the Corinthians. In 1 Corinthians 15:2-4, he explains the three elements of the gospel"the death, burial and resurrection of Christ on our behalf.

Our old nature died with Christ on the cross and was buried with Him. Then we were resurrected with Him to a new life (Romans 6:4-8). Paul tells us to "hold firmly" to this true gospel, the only one which saves.

Believing in any other gospel is to believe in vain. In Romans 1:16-17, Paul also declares that the true gospel is the "power of God for the salvation of everyone who believes" by which he means that salvation is not achieved by man's efforts, but by the grace of God through the gift of faith (Ephesians 2:8-9).
