    Our stream of consciousness flows from one Dream World to the next.

    Just dont ever go back to the Nightmare Worlds.

    I did not see combat, but I still saw some very fucked up shit, like most service members do.

    You have to amputate that part of your past.

    It would be easy to do while you being demonized for just being a veteran looking for a job in the pre Dessert Storm world..If the business world didn't scrutinize every action in your life to determine whether you are employable it would be easier....But that is not the case and since they feel the need to put a chain around my neck to try and make me a slave to their social engineering I can't let it go...

    His words were clear. You might not agree with his justification, but your lie about why he is doing it is shown to be a lie.

    I think that's perfectly sensible

    Good post! I agree and this is what is news: not the game. You made me think, and what I think is that Fox has a very serious problem here (so do the other sports outlets and other organized games like basketball). This is the third serious hit football has taken recently, after all the domestic abuse crimes and after all the charges of brain damage. Now it really is becoming a race issue and whites predominantly are mad at blacks predominantly -- more because of all the riots and crimes than because of the kneeling, I suspect. There is a major consumer rebellion going on among viewers and the question is, can they walk it back? Or is football in America finished? I think they made a huge mistake turning football over entirely to gargantuan black men. It separated football way too much from the actual moneymaking viewership.

    Note that the networks are not showing the many fans yelling and booing the kneelers -- wow. Why not? Race war, that's why. Showing a lot of this stuff DOES probably promote race war, and they know it. They're afraid of it: it could crush pro sports in America and crush Fox and lose a whole lot of advertising revenue.

    Will anyone now starting to boycott football come back? I started boycotting football a couple years ago (after a LOT of years of faithful watching) because of the terrible domestic abuse crimes by so many black football players, going from city to city beating up their Baby Mamas and little tiny toddlers. I'm not cheering for criminals doing that! I don't think people come back after being disgusted and boycotting. Target is finding that out.

    Local Fox affiliate did here.
    Perhaps Fox Sports is different?

    So, no, they're not going to take the N.A. off the air?
