nother year, another group of athletes showing the same old tired show of disrespect for “their” country, flag and once again kneeling or staying seated or putting a fist up. All I can say is, I feel sorry for these people. What kind of values are they teaching their children.
I have seen different T-shirts in various catalogs.
One says “I believe the man wearing a helmet defending our country should be paid a lot more than a man wearing a helmet defending a football.” Hmmm, I tend to agree. I am sure every single person playing sports of any kind doesn’t mind receiving the money they are paid, or being in the country that makes it happen.
If any of these people have so many issues with this country that they can not stand up to show their respect, as well as their gratitude, to the country that is willing to allow them to live quite well, then they should leave.
Move to Iran, Iraq, or to Dennis Rodman’s favorite place, North Korea.
