America is still a wonderful place to live.

October 5, 2017

I am really irritated. For you football players that “bend” a knee, GO SOMEPLACE ELSE AND TRY TO EARN THE MONEY YOU MAKE IN THE USA! ALSO, IF YOU THINK WE ARE RACIST – GO SOMEPLACE ELSE – BECAUSE every human being on the planet has his or her prejudices! GOODBYE!
This thing has got me going…These spoiled athletes, who “protest” to make a difference, aren’t! All they are doing is dividing people and causing conflicts.
I won’t apologize or say, “everyone has a right to their opinion! Those who have exposure and liberal media behind them, have more than the rights of the individual peasants who really own and reside and pay taxes and live and honor and love America!!!
I am sick of people making pathetic excuses to be weak and not stand up for what they believe. Humans ALL OVER THE WORLD would give everything they own to have the opportunity afforded them in the USA…prejudice? I am white, a woman, my son says I am attractive, and I lived in a moderately financed home when I was small. My mom and dad paid $5,000. for their home…therefore I am BLAMED for the racial prejudice and horrible things going on today. Neither here nor there. I am not to blame! I had no choice how I was born, how I look, my brains, my position in life, the whole ball of wax- draw of the cards!
These athletes, who are probably too young and too rich to remember World War II or even the Koran War or Vietnam, do not get it! PROTEST you MF’ers (Malfunctioning , Flawed humans) – and stay BLIND! If you want to drop on your knee, you had better be doing it in honor of the greatest Spirit of all, who created us!
FOR ME, to stand with hand on heart during the National Anthem means I honor all those who have suffered and died, and those who have lived with horrible disabilities…to keep us free! I honor their sacrifices and the sacrifices their families made, and still make! Our National Anthem is a symbol of our country, and the flag- another symbol of this great country we live in…of the blood shed to keep us free!
Athletes kneeling to protest brutality and inequality? The only thing they do is cause more difficulty, and more separating of people. Look up TRUE facts and you will find more people of color KILL their own than police! Yes the brutality to blacks by police officers can be harsh, but it is laid upon suspects and criminals by officers that are black too! AND, oftentimes the brutality BEGINS with those suspects and criminals fighting the police first! WHAT WOULD YOU DO??
Oprah is one of the richest women in the world, a man who is proud to be black (though that is each person’s opinion) was president, black athletes are multi-millionaires, black actors are millionaires – so wherein is all the inequality? Poverty is the culprit, and there are very poor white people in this country too!
AS FAR AS THE CLASPING OF ARMS – my personal opinion, “throw-up, gag, vomit.” Purely BS (Brilliant Strategy ) by, I am sure, managers who encouraged players to show “Unity” even if they don’t drop to their knee. Well, DUH, they have to show unity to keep people buying tickets, and to keep misleading the meaning of what their are doing.
SHOW UNITY TO YOUR PROVIDERS:
Drop to your knee to praise God! People are born with physical attributes, so don’t take too much credit for natural skills your were born with-be grateful.
Unify as citizens of the greatest country in the world by standing with your hand on your heart facing the flag “ White signifies purity and innocence. Red, hardiness & valour, and Blue… signifies vigilance, perseverance & justice.”. The stars represent the “union” of the states. Added to the description in 1977: “The star is a symbol of the heavens and the divine goal to which man has aspired from time immemorial, and the stripe symbolic of the rays of light emanating from the sun.”….
Sing our National Anthem! “ An anthem is “A patriotic musical composition that evokes and eulogizes the history, traditions, and struggles of its people, recognized either by a nation’s government as the official national song, or by convention through use by the people.”
I admit it is difficult to sing and the range is beyond me, but at least I will stand with my hand over my heart and try!

Korea, the President, football and Prayer.

October 3, 2017

MY PERSONAL OPINION:
I think, NO MATTER how you voted, we should try to be open to support OUR president. If I had been a multimillionaire with a beautiful wife and children – the last thing I would want to do is take on on the headaches and trauma’s some presidents are forced to face. He can always be voted out, and thus far, his sending help to Texas, Florida and now Puerto Rico has been commendable.
I have watched, in my lifetime, N. Korea cause MANY problems prior to this. He did not cause the current problems. I do think he should limit his tweets, but it is his way of trying to reach out to people and state his thoughts. Just because he is president doesn’t mean he doesn’t have free speech. (He should refrain from swearing, I think.) I do love the way he doesn’t pussy foot around and apologize for America. Everyone knows you must stand up to a bull or he will walk all over you!
I agree with his stance on honoring the flag, and National Anthem – which represents all those men and women who have been wounded and died to keep our nation free. As a woman I have enjoyed football, but this was NOT about race. I love my freedom. Hence, I will not honor those who besmear the flag or anthem, and disgrace those who have given so much.
I will live without big time football viewing on television or internet, or in person. These multi-million spoiled children need to know when to protest. If they choose NOT to honor America in these ways, that is their right, but stay in the locker rooms as a sign of respect. If you don’t love AMERICA….(she has made you wealthy), LEAVE!
By the way, “the poor will always be with us”. We are born in bodies we do not choose, and in towns and financial conditions we have no choice about either. Racism was NOT born in the USA. It was born in another place, and grew because someone (of color)- chose money over anything else!
Obama was not my favorite president. It wasn’t because he was black, but because during his time I saw racism bloom again, and disdain for our men in blue grow exponentially. Use the word “decisive”, a word the media has sat squarely on Trump, and you will be just following those who’s tongues hang out on every word that is printed or spoken by them. obama was decisive. “Keep your doctor, keep a plan you like…”
With all the talk of “racism” I still see people of color that are thriving in the USA; I still see the murder rate of blacks murdering blacks way above white murdering blacks. Read everything you can get your hands on if you are interested in “finding” the truth. “The truth will set you free……”
I know Americans are relentless in “giving” to causes that help other humans in need. God bless us one and all for doing what we can. It doesn’t matter if you are grocery shopping, or on line or television, peasants are plagued by requests for CASH. May I say again, ANY of these VERY VERY rich sob’s who have millions upon millions, and billions, could all pitch in and help those in need and they would still be rich….and the matters would be resolved-all around the world could be helped. Come on oprah, bill gates, ANY movie talent, congress members, members of the United Nations, george soros (HAHA), george clooney, comedians, football players, and SO SO MANY MORE!
It has been pointed out to me that many “stars” have given. But I did my homework and for these million and billionaires, their gifts amount to WAY LESS than 10% of their worth. To me that is just paying for advertising for each of them! However, I cannot be the judge of others.
It won’t happen. They may donate time to raise money. They may donate a pittance (and to peasants it seems a lot), when actually it is cheap advertising….alas, we can pray, and volunteer, and do what we can…and we will, for our Spirits are rich.
Last thought for the day….”Football players who feel they must protest – please just leave the space until the “honors” are done. Find another way to protest other than dropping to the knee!
Do not drop to the knee as a show of disrespect, or in a misplaced way of showing displeasure for something that wasn’t even at the forefront of the conversation. Get over yourselves!
I reserve dropping to the knee to humbly pray and show my respect to the Greatest Spirit of All.
(addendum: keep in mind when I do not capitalize names it is because that is my way of showing disrespect.)
