More of the 'me' generation's way of thinking?  The networks has the right idea...and liberals has no problem infringing on the rights or enjoyment of others?  More of the 'me, me, me'.

 

Have a good evening....

Of course it does to you.  Liberals have no problem respecting the rights of others as long as they get their narrow minded way of forcing their opinions on others.  Thanks for asking (sarcasm).

 

Part of the 'me' generation wanting their way disregarding others, thinking their rights override those of others.  It hasn't changed since decades ago when a kid told me that I have no rights but others do.


Would those be real rights as guaranteed by the Constitution or the made up ones conservatives keep authoring?


Just commenting on the misunderstood thinking of liberals who have the idea that their rights overrule those of others.  You stand up for the Internationale since you don't think much of our National Anthem?

Would you point out where in the US Constitution is the right for you to hear the National Anthem on your TV before a sporting event? If it is that important to you why don't you get a recording of it and listen to it yourself.


I do have the right of my opinion of whether to watch prima donnas make fools of themselves and in doing by spoiling my watching the National Anthem at the beginning of the game.  Perhaps they should play the Internationale which liberals sound like they would prefer? 

 

Apparently the networks didn't care for their antics either.

Is that how you refer to conservatives who support the 1st Amendment as long as they approve of the speech and the color of the protester's skin? Interesting.

 

" It hasn't changed since decades ago when a kid told me that I have no rights but others do."

 


Did I say anything about color of skin?  Does your freedoms override mine?  That was my argument to the kid.  Each of our individual rights ended where those of the other began.

 

Apparently the networks has solved this problem of sitting and kneeling by not giving these characters the national coverage they want.

Tx - Part of the 'me' generation wanting their way disregarding others, thinking their rights override those of others.

 

If the station you're watching is not going to play the anthem, play it for yourself.  No one will stop you from exercising your right to do so.  If you want to participate with a crowd, call in the neighbors, have a party, eat chicken wings and enjoy the game.

I'm waiting for the cartoons showing how Trump disrespected the military when a war hero died by briefly flying the flag at half staff, raising it again the next morning, then having to lower it again because of the bad polls.

See where Tim Tebow is now?  Where is he?  Found refuge in professional baseball instead of football.



Are you just confirming that Tebow was a horrible football player or was there another point?

Wow, an old cartoon.  The NFL players now take a knee to protest the exploitation of the black community.  I think protecting them from that kind of government is one of the reasons that Marine would have joined. 


For decades Republicans have used bumper stickers and cartoons to present their position to their lofo base simply because said base could not wrap their tiny minds around things like economic Darwinism and the need to replace democracy with oligarchy to save their (undefined) freedoms.  Much easier to get the GOPer base to accept all that if you can get them laughing instead of thinking.
