    Dear Penelope
    1. Likewise, the players like Tebow kneeling in prayer were also criticized and namecalled for doing this on the field before cameras/in the media.

    No one was against people making statements as individuals.
    But as a professional team being PAID to represent a franchise on national TV,
    yes, the management has the right to enforce polices on PUBLIC expression
    when it's on paid TV as part of their business.

    When I work for any other company, they also have the right to bar employees from making public statements "while REPRESENTING THAT COMPANY"

    you can protest all you want to as an individual or independent group,
    but when in uniform that represents a professional team, that is different.

    2. as for Bundy and taking up arms against the govt, to me the real heroes
    and role models are the ones who can negotiate and settle conflicts
    without the threat of force but enforcing laws through civil obedience not disobedience.

    if more people and leaders on left and right united in agreement to enforce
    Constitutional laws and principles, maybe we'd see more successful conflict resolution
    instead of bullying to dominate one side over another. anyone can start a war,
    but it takes a real principled leader to make peace by settling conflicts to satisfy all sides.

    that to me is the standard for equal protection of the laws under the Constitution.
    Very few people make the cut, or as they say in the Bible, the
    gate of righteousness is very narrow and few shall find it. but the
    path of destruction is broad and most of the world goes that way.

    anyone can argue my side is right and the other group is wrong.

    How many people can truly find and enforce a solution that
    represents all sides and all people of all groups equally and inclusively?

    but that is what we promise when we say "equal justice under law"and equal
    inclusion/representation of all people for govt to truly represent the public interest.

    This thread sucked two years ago, and it still sucks today. The OP was wrong then and is still wrong today.

    And what the fuck is "laments terms"?


    A pox on whomever resurrected this POS thread...
