    I served 20 honorable years in the military. Why would I not continue to honor them beyond my retirement? I know the sacrifice made by our military first hand. They deserve every honor they get from their grateful country. It is an honor to give ones life in defense of country.

    Kids getting killed by officers is a sad event that can not be painted with broad strokes as something that is the fault of the officers. Parents love their children and will naturally be upset over their loss no matter who is at fault.

    Nobody loves to send young men to war but unfortunately wishing evil away doesn't work so better men than you or I are sent to dispatch those that would do us harm. True evil does exist in this world that would do real harm to all Americans, be thankful it is keep away from our shores.

    Am I forcing ideology? Maybe you confused me with somebody that gives a crap what you say. Never have never will. Remember that the next time you think you have something to say to me. I don't care about what you have to say. Preach your blather to a weaker minded person that will listen.

    I will glady support any decision the players make as long as it is not kneeling. If they want to stay in the tunnel, fine. If they want to lock arms, great.

    Just do not kneel!

    Ok, the coverage of the kneeling is beginning to get nauseating on my sports shows.

    All I hear there is you self-identifying as a hater of America. Explains so much about you.

    Well you sir have no concept of:

    1. Salary Cap
    2. Constitutional rights
    3. Peaceful Protesting
    4. Or what they are protesting


    I'll gladly hold the door open for you when someone kneels tonight.

    They won't be cut, but constitutional rights have nothing to do with it. Jerry Jones would be well within his rights to cut them.

    People get fired all the time for saying/doing things their employers found objectionable.

    The 1st Amendment says the GOVERNMENT can't suppress your speech. It says nothing about your employer.

    People who get caught saying vile things to co workers, racist stuff, etc. get fired all the time. Since their employer is not the Government, there's no 1st Amendment issue involved.

    Referring to the forum AND that it is the owner's forum. And his rules.
    But, too, obviously you are special because you saw fit to get politics into this thread.
    You know better but you violated a tenent of the CZ.
    Apologize. Now.

    Constitutional rights to protest on the job, really? Did not realize I had that right from birth.

    They don't teach this in most schools, unfortunately.

    Few Americans know what freedom of speech actually means.

    I think kneeling is really disrespectful to the men and women who fought to give them that right. I get both sides of this, I really do and have not debated either side in this forum.

    It will go a longer ways by just standing in unity IMO. By kneeling, they are stirring up even more contrversy and the real, underlying issues will be smothered by the 24/7 coverage of the kneels themselves. The media will focus solely on that action rather than a unified front of players locking arms.

    In short, if they want to accomplish some goals, do not make it worse by kneeling. This is all my opinion and I speak for no one else.
