    How is kneeling during the anthem any less pointlessly symbolic than burning NFL paraphernalia on video?

    That's a challenge. When NBA season starts you're going to see NBA players taking a knee.

    Why do we even sing the national anthem before a sports event anyway?

    I guess you missed the thread about the NBA ruling.

    I'm not deflecting Ray.

    You said that LeBron looks "more uneducated each and every time", I'm pointing out that you shouldn't be the sort of person to tell someone else that they're "uneducated".

    But no one is committed to addressing these issues. The only address for these issues is a massive reduction in the power of Federal government and people involved in politics are looking to urge the government to take more actions and effectively dig deeper into our lives.

    As bad as things are, they're still preferable in the US to any of the many other countries where I've lived and worked, for now. And, in the far flung day where if finally does fall apart, maybe something better will crawl out of the ashes.

    I live in hope.

    You are not pointing out shit. You are stuck on a conversation we had weeks ago and can't get it out of your head. That's why you respond by bringing it up every time you reply to one of my comments. Drop it already.....sheeze.
