There is a popular phrase the folks at the NFL have apparently forgotten. It says, “don’t bite the hand that feeds you.” The NFL likes to sell themselves as the all-American product. They advertise their league alongside the American flag. However, when it is time to prove their allegiance to that ideal they have suddenly taken a different stand.
Take for instance the national anthem controversy. The controversy began last year during the Obama presidency when Forty Niner QB Colin Kaepernick kneeled during the national anthem. He did so to protest a police ncident in which a black man was allegedly killed unnecessarily by a white police officer. Last June, that police officer was acquitted of that crime by a jury of his peers. One would think that kneeling before the national anthem would subside now with the facts of that case had finally been revealed.
Unfortunately, it hasn’t. The anthem protests have officially been condoned by NFL leadership, owners and players association. As a sign of unity they are all going along with this out of control disrespect during the national anthem. These people are paid handsomely in the millions. The league makes billions worldwide. What do they think will be the after effect of all these protests every Sunday on the general public? We know that since this bull crap started over a year ago, ratings for the NFL games have plunged considerably.
Not only are the anthem protests disgusting, the poor play and end zone celebrations have an effect on viewership declining.. One example of this foolish behavior was on display Sunday when New York Giant’s wide receiver and NFL poster boy Odell Beckham Jr. scored a touchdown in the fourth quarter of a game against the Philadelphia Eagles.. After scoring the touchdown Mr. Beckham got on all fours in the end zone to mimic a dog peeing in the end zone. A question needs to be asked to the NFL and their poster boy Odell Beckham Jr.. Is this a gesture that warrants respect?
After another touchdown, Mr. Beckham held up his fist in air as a display of black liberation power. That is a gesture that hasn’t been seen since the Olympics during the turbulent 1960’s. Is it going to be acceptable for the children in this country to act this way after they score touchdowns in their pee wee football games?
Tell me? Do these NFL players believe they are living in a country that will accept this odd and outrageous behavior. If this continues to be condoned by the bone heads in the NFL, you can kiss your pathetic association goodbye! If you expect ordinary Americans to continue to subsidize this anti-American behavior through ticket sales and television revenue you are sorely mistaken. As you see viewership continue to decline and ticket sales plunge, it may be a little to late for the NFL to sustain its profitability.
They are failing to understand the real economic damage they are doing to their sport. They should remember their demise will not be the fault of Barack Obama or Donald Trump. The fault will lie with the National Football League for their failure to understand one simple fact. “Don’tbite the hand that feeds you!”
There is a quote attributed to Abraham Lincoln that stated, “you can fool some of the people all of the time, and all the people some of the time, but you can not fool all the people all the time. It is about time for every American to understand what that phrase means when it comes to understanding the trickery concerning the socialist democrat politicians and your so called, “right” to healthcare.
When Obama was running for president in 2008 he secretly promised to the unions that single payer healthcare was his main objective. He used the same reckless talking point all stupid liberals use when he said, “we are the only civilized country in the world that doesn’t provide its citizens the basic and fundamental need of healthcare.”
Obama and the American left created Obamacare in order to kill the American healthcare system we had in the first place. Never mind that to it was the best healthcare in the entire western world. Unfortunately for Obama, the only thing he killed as far as healthcare is concerned was the individual mandate. That is healthcare for people who buy it themselves. Now all that is left for those people to buy are inferior plans that are basically Medicare advantage. Those are expensive plans that doctors don’t accept because they never get reimbursed for their services by the federal government.
After destroying the individual mandate in 2009, what do the socialist democrats in our government want to do today with the rest of the American healthcare system? They want to seize and destroy what’s left of that by creating the, “Medicaid For All Act.” It’s a bill that makes private insurance illegal. It also displaces the 180 million people who get their health insurance from their employer to a public option run by the federal government. Much like the VA. Look how unsuccessfully run that is. When children are born the, “Medicare For All Act” will automatically place the children, without any say of their parents, into the government run program. Their children will essentially be a wards of the state. Everyone’s healthcare, “right” will be controlled by the federal government.
It’s interesting to note the politicians sponsoring this bill are members of the democrat party. The party we are constantly told is the party of compassion and choice. It’s also interesting to note these same political nincumpoops who are sponsoring this outrageous bill are all rumored to be running for the White House in 2020. The notion of that should scare the living crap out of every American with a brain.
One of these clowns admitted in 1973 that a government run, single payer program wouldn’t work in the United States because it would, “bankrupt the country?” This brain dead idiot has already proven that point with Obamacare.
These same socialist’s who are thinking about be presidency in 2020 are promising to the entire nation they want to completely destroy the American healthcare system. It is scary when you understand that over 50 million dumbasses voted in 2016 for the guy who is sponsoring this reckless and unaffordable bill.
We now see the devastation in our healthcare system caused by the socialist liberals when they seized control of it in 2009. The healthcare system continues to get worse for every American citizen thanks to them. If you want to restore the best healthcare system in the world. Then kick these socialist assholes out of office who created the problem in the first place. America must take heed to what Abraham Lincoln said many years ago. “You can fool some of the people all of the time, and all of the people some of the time, but you can not fool all of the people all of the time.
The fake news media’s desperate attempt to portray president Trump as someone who has no empathy for the flood ravaged citizens in Texas fell on deaf ears this week. Understanding why is easy. Just compare what president Trump did this week to what his predecessor didn’t do just one year ago. This week president Trump visited Texas and gave assurances to the people there that things would get better. Visiting with the people of Texas demonstrated thepresident’strueempathy.
Compare that to what Obama didn’t do just one year ago when flooding devastated Louisiana. Obama showed his empathy for the people by playing golf on Martha’s Vineyard with Hollywood elitist Larry David. The fake news media not only didn’t have a problem with Obama not visiting Louisiana, they defended him him for not going.
The fake news media struck out once again in their attempt to portray president Trump as someone who didn’t show any empathy for the people of Texas. Just compare that to how they reacted after their guy completely blew off the good people of Louisiana. Barack Obama was the king of the fake photo-op. Unlike Obama, the current president doesn’t do fake photo-ops for the fake media. All Trump needed to do was go down and meet the folks in charge and by pass the fake media. The fact that he did that demonstrated to everyone thepresident’strueempathy.
