And that we need to do something about it.

The protest is silent, respectful as it acknowledges the event by pausing together with everybody else, and yet impactful as it states an important point of view. Posture is an element of individual choice, in everyday life, in praying, and at sporting events. It hurts nobody, and might help some people who sorely need it.

I totally approve and encourage all to do the same until we fix a systemic problem that has been killing and degrading people far too long.

Besides. What in the hell do the flag and the national anthem have to do with a sporting contest? Answer: not a damn thing. Let's stop it and reserve these things for events that have something to do with our country and our government.

A Black Lives Matter lie. The Facts:

...blacks, who are 13% of the U.S. population, themselves commit many more homicides than white and Hispanic perpetrators—combined. Young black males in particular commit homicide at nearly ten times the combined rate of their white and Hispanic counterparts. As Manhattan Institute scholar Heather Mac Donald explains, “That astronomically higher homicide-commission rate means that police officers are going to be disproportionately in black neighborhoods to fight crime, where they will more likely encounter armed shooting suspects.” Blacks nationwide are also dramatically overrepresented in the commission of other serious crimes such as rape, robbery, and assault—precisely the types of offenses most likely to trigger a confrontation with police that could result in a fatality.


...instances of police-on-Asian shootings are nearly invisible in this chart—indeed, blacks, Hispanics, and whites alike are far more likely than Asians to be shot in police encounters. What could explain this? If we were to apply Ms. Lee's line of reasoning, we'd have no choice but to conclude that New York police officers, for some reason, feel less racial animus against Asians than they feel against everyone else. A more realistic explanation is that Asians in the city have very low crime rates and thus have comparatively little contact with police.


Of all suspects who are known to have been killed by law-enforcement officers during that time frame, 41.7% were white, 31.7% were black, and 20.3% were Hispanic. Also during that period, blacks accounted for about 38.5% of all arrests for violent crimes—i.e., the types of crimes most likely to lead to a potentially fatal confrontation with police. These numbers do not in any way suggest a lack of restraint by police in their dealings with black suspects. On the contrary, they suggest the exact opposite


http://www.frontpagemag.com/fpm/247054/police-shootings-race-age-lies-john-perazzo

the per capita rate of officers being feloniously killed is 45 times higher than the rate at which unarmed black males are killed by cops. And an officer’s chance of getting killed by a black assailant is 18.5 times higher than the chance of an unarmed black getting killed by a cop.


https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/volokh-conspiracy/wp/2016/07/19/academic-research-on-police-shootings-and-race/?utm_term=.c066d42fe3db#comments

Today blacks are about 13 percent of the population and continue to be responsible for an inordinate amount of crime. Between 1976 and 2005 blacks com­mitted more than half of all murders in the United States. The black arrest rate for most offenses — including robbery, aggravated assault and property crimes — is still typically two to three times their representation in the population. Blacks as a group are also overrepresented among persons arrested for so-called white-collar crimes such as counterfeiting, fraud and embezzlement. And blaming this decades-long, well-documented trend on racist cops, prosecutors, judges, sentencing guidelines and drug laws doesn’t cut it as a plausible explanation.

Juggler States:

The kneeling is protesting police brutality. You made it about disrespecting the flag. That is how racism works.


What a dumb argument. So if we had NFL players taking a knee to protest abortion during the playing of the anthem in disrespect to our veterans and we felt it disrespectful, than we hate children?? You are wrong. The whole concept that blacks are subject to higher incidences of police shootings or police brutality because of systemic racism is a false narrative. Are blacks shot by police officers at a higher proportion than the general population? Yes. Are blacks committing violent crimes in a much higher proportion than the general population that than requires police to have confrontational situations with black perpetrators that lead to violence and shootings between both blacks and police officers in a much higher proportion than the general population? Without a doubt, yes. If police officers are deemed racist by the fact that blacks are shot by police officers at a higher frequency than Whites, than how do you explain the fact that Hispanics are shot at approximately the same frequency as Whites and Asians are shot at a frequency much lower than any other racial group???? Are police partial to Asians than? Is the new form of racism Asian supremacy? Women comprise less than 10% of police shootings but make up over 50% of the population. Are police officers therefore sexist towards men?

He can hardly speak, because he can hardly reason. His brain waves as communication take the form of other peoples cartoons.

I say he should just stick to posting cartoons. If he isn't going to make sense at least we can look at pretty pictures. :tiphat:

This is about Ideology and politics. It is about perspective. Not religious freedom. Colin and Barry are not nationalists when it comes to America. They are however all about sovereignty when it comes to POLITICAL IDEOLOGY. Their support for wayward totalitarian political states-of-mind are pronounced. From Castro, to CHE, to The Muslim Brotherhood, to the Palestinians their perspective is clear. Blast and beat up America. Trash the patriotism of those who see this country in a favorable light, in deference to CLEAR tyrants...

Not my best... Put it this way. Comparing the religious liberty of the Amish with the 1st amendment assumption by Kaepernick is not really lucid either. Kaepernick, like Obama, are political downbeats in an upbeat America. They both are taking glass is half empty pot shots at their political opposition all wrapped up in a false flag of protest. How's that?

Trump tweets.....

Postby Coondog » 2017 Oct 14 16:44

........so the Russians can tell you what to be offended by. And, we're off to the Races again on some useless argument stoked by the stupid on one side and the stupider on the other.

Why does Trump Tweet? Because nobody will write a speech for him to read in person off a teleprompter with that stupid stuff in it. But, Boy Howdy, do the mindless minions go flying off the handle about freedom (strangely) and patriotism and blah, blah, blah until one's head begins to hurt :banghead:

If Trump hadn't gone and tweeted his fool head off about what's none of his business, this nonsense would have been over last season and Pence wouldn't have wasted all that money on God knows how many tickets the Secret Service probably had to buy for themselves.

-Trump is effectively and essentially, a third party candidate
-Trump is an existential threat to the Political Class
-7 of the 9 wealthiest counties in America surround Washington D.C.
-Economic Nationalism is not about demographic CLASS
-It is about "are you a citizen of the United States of America"
-It is what binds us together
-We are a COUNTRY, a civic society, looking out for our fellow Americans
-Working class people responded to Trump
-Trump is Anti Establishment
-Half of American households don't have $400 for emergencies
-Trump is igniting our economic engines and needs your support
-He is opposed by the donor class, the Two Party Establishment
-Trump opposed by Big Corporate Media, and Hollywood Elites

Winning Matters and Trump WINNING is good for America

"RESIST" is a movement of the establishment, big global governance, and corporatist elites. Don't go there...

Trumpists respond to this sad fact with, "What a waste, $400 on THOSE people. We must reduce financial underpinnings for poor people. Wealthy people need even more of the country's resources."

Postby Crux » 2017 Oct 21 21:57

How they were crooning about the stock market under Obama, and were crooning about unemployment and job creation?
How they lost 1,000 State and Local and National seats all across the country over the last 7 years, in epic ass woopings?
How GOP and nationalist populist tea party candidates have WON, voted into office by the poor, disaffected working class?

TRUMP WON by winning over the voters, of all demographics.

"TRUMPISTS" my dear Auntie Nudge, VOTED FOR TRUMP and he WON. :sleepy:
Against all odds, the polls, the corporatist media, the political establishment...

You are so lost and so stuck and so so so-so...

Not one Democrat voted for the worst tax legislation in history, about to cause a massive $1.5 trillion transfer of wealth from poor and middle class citizens to a few kleptocrats who are already obscenely wealthy.

They suckered many poor people into believing the exact opposite of the truth. That truth will slowly reveal itself even to those who were fooled, and we will then finally vote Republicans out of office..

Republicans who did vote for it should be ashamed of themselves. Let's all unite and restore sensible government so we can address the real problems of the Nation.

Such a dim-witted comment. More that 50% of Americans DON'T PAY FEDERAL INCOME TAX (when you include the EITC),
they actually RECEIVE MONEY from the Federal Government (which is to say MIDDLE CLASS and WEALTHY tax payers).


It is actually difficult to witness such nuttery....

Having witnessed the Giant Suck Fest which took place at the White House today, I hold little hope that any semblance of honor or integrity will manifest itself in our government any time in the foreseeable future. Republicans will hold congress for at least another year. Muller will not provide impeachable evidence for at least one year (should he survive). Hence, it will likely be mid 2019 before any chance of removing the shroud of indecency that is the Trump Administration will arise.

Another year of compromised republicans trying their best to pin something (anything) on Hillary Clinton, no matter how far fetched or meaningless. Another year before anyone in government other than an inadequate handful of Democrats requires a response to Russia's massive cyber brainwashing of the American people.

The giant suck fest celebrates the further expansion of the wealth gap between real people and Trump and his fellow oligarchs. The sycophancy (psycho fancy) seems to bode ill for the future of those of us not endowed with power and unimaginable riches. Alas, such is life.

Another year (should we survive) of daily lies and fabrications so blatant as to dull the normal senses but not enough to choke the grinning herd of attendant goats..........goats who will measure the success of their final year by how much damage they can inflict on the fabric of governance, the cohesion of society, prominence and respect of former allies in particular and the world in general.

Yep, most of the "achievements" are anything but.

They are acts of avarice that bring only shame to Trump and his Republican supporters. They do nothing to help the country and most of its people.

They are simply transfers of wealth from poor and middle income people, to the uber-wealthy. The last thing we need.

Jan. 1, there’s a $10,000 limit on all of your state and local taxes, including property taxes. OH THAT'S gonna hurt the poor...
The extent to which it hurts the middle class, the transfer of wealth will not be "to the rich", it will be "to the Federal Government".

You should be cheering.... :pompom:
