97% Of NFL Players Unsure Of What They're Protesting
NEW YORK (World News Bureau) - In a recent polling of 585 NFL players, nearly all of them were unsure of exactly what they are protesting.
Here's a sampling of responses to the question "What are you protesting by kneeling during the National Anthem?"
"Pretty sure it's against Nazis - especially the white ones."
"We're protesting America becoming capitalistic instead of equal."
"I'm protesting against Trump saying black lives don't matter."
"We're against global warming and the police."
"We're showing the world that we care about, ahh, things such as... such as...ahhhhh, freedom from suppression?"
"Me and my fellow players are protesting the Constitution of Independence because of what it does to people of color."
"We are displaying our right to stand up by kneeling for our beliefs."
"We are protesting Trump, because he, you know, keeping the black man down and sh*t."
"Myself is kneeling to show that just because I'm American don't mean I got to act like one."

The Suicide of the NFL


Posted: Sep 27, 2017 
This is the story of the suicide of the NFL.

Every liberal CEO in America should be watching and listening. This is a case study for how to destroy a billion-dollar business by injecting your offensive leftist politics and alienating your own customer base.

President Trump has done it again. No, I don’t mean he’s offended millions of Americans. I mean he said exactly what was on the mind of tens of millions of middle class Americans. Call us the Silent Majority. Because of Trump, our views now count.

Don’t look now but Trump just kicked the NFL’s rear end. Ratings are plummeting. Revenues are plunging. The player’s spokesman deals are being cancelled. Fans are booing. Fans are burning tickets and uniforms. Lifelong NFL zealots are vowing to never watch another game. And the #1 selling jersey in the USA is a Pittsburgh Steeler backup- a former Army Ranger who stood for the national anthem.

The Silent Majority is speaking loudly and clearly.

When you offend 63 million Trump voters, your business suffers, your bottom line plunges... 
The NFL is going the way of dying dinosaur ESPN- they lost 3 million subscribers just last year alone. 

And the Emmys- with the lowest ratings EVER. 

And Hollywood box office revenues- the worst in 25 years. 

And NBC’s Megyn Kelly- whose career is on life support. She's so scared of Trump's voters she just announced her new NBC morning show will be a "politics free zone." 

And Arnold Schwarzenegger- who flopped as host of “Celebrity Apprentice.” 
And Actress Jennifer Lawrence- who latest movie bombed after disrespecting Trump. 
And Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson, who recently suffered his first-ever action movie flop, after disrespecting Trump. 

Don’t forget Madonna, who threatened to bomb the White House. Her latest album sold 3,000 copies last week. Guess who got bombed?

My grandfather put it best. He taught me there are only two rules to business:
#1) The customer is always right.
#2) If the customer is wrong, refer back to Rule #1. 

All of these athletes, entertainers, CEOs, businesses and leagues like the NFL have free speech. They can say whatever they want. But so can we- the customers. But we always get the last laugh.

Always assume your customers are 50/50 liberal vs conservative. Therefore, any political statement you make risks offending and alienating half your customers.. So, shut up. Don't do it. Keep your views to yourself. Unless you want to lose 50 percent of your customers.

But what if your specific customer base is 70 percent conservative or center-right? Well then you could ruin your entire brand forever. Enter the NFL.

Of course, the NFL’s audience includes lots of diverse groups. But let’s be honest. The typical NFL fan is a white, middle class, middle aged, meat-eating, testosterone-driven Republican (or certainly center-right). 

The typical NFL fan is a flag waver. They always stand for the national anthem. They wear flag pins and chant “USA, USA, USA!” They love cops and military. They're far more likely to eat hot dogs and drive a SUV, than eat tofu and drive a Prius. In short, they are middle class Trump voters. Not all of them. But a significant majority.

Doesn’t the NFL Commissioner know this? Don’t the executives at the NFL’s Park Ave. offices know this? What world do they live in? The NFL doesn't understand, or give a damn about their own customers? The NFL wants to go to war with their own best customers? Really? Wow.

So, this isn’t about free speech. This is about the survival of your business and destruction of your brand. Someday this will be a case study in how to destroy a brand in business schools. Just like ESPN. Because ESPN's customers are the same middle class (and above) Trump voters as NFL fans.

Now it’s time to REALLY bring the NFL to its knees. 

It’s time for a nationwide boycott. It’s time for 63 million Trump fans to stop watching. Turn off NFL games on your TV for the next month. Watch the owners cry. Watch them panic. Watch them beg. Watch them order an end to all kneeling or disrespect for the national anthem. Watch them sing a whole new tune.

If you’re betting on the games here in Vegas, or you're just a superfine going into withdrawal, just watch them online, or on your iPhones. But make TV ratings collapse. That's what matters to NFL owners. Hit them in the pocketbook. They make no money when you watch online.

It’s also time for 63 million Trump voters to stop buying NFL merchandise. Go cold turkey. Buy something different for your kids or dad for Christmas. Try a book.  

Write every NFL sponsor and demand they cancel their NFL advertising campaigns, or we’ll stop buying from them. 
Call your Governor and demand your state immediately withdraw all state subsidies from your local team. 
Call your Congressmen and demand the NFL’s anti-trust and tax exempt status be withdrawn immediately. Ouch. This one’s gonna hurt!

It’s time to teach the NFL a lesson. The Silent Majority counts. What we believe in- God, country, Constitution, flag, national anthem, American exceptionalism- matters. Start worrying about offending us.
The NFL is about to learn a bitter lesson. Trump 35-NFL 0.

Dazed and Confused













Fwd: Fw: Tell Me


FW: Gun Deaths and Gun Control by Ted

Every time there is a mass killing, the left starts using it for their gun control agenda.  Why would they do that? Lets look at some facts.



TED NUGENT
JUNE 6, 2017


There are 30,000 gun related deaths per year by firearms, and this number is not disputed. U.S. population 324,059,091 as of Wednesday, June 22, 2016. Do the math: 0.000000925% of the population dies from gun-related actions each year. Statistically speaking, this is insignificant! What is never told, however, is a breakdown of those 30,000 deaths, to put them in perspective as compared to other causes of death:
• 65% of those deaths are by suicide which would never be prevented by gun laws
• 15% are by law enforcement in the line of duty and justified
• 17% are through criminal activity, gang and drug-related or mentally ill persons – gun violence
• 3% are accidental discharge deaths
So technically, "gun violence" is not 30,000 annually, but drops to 5,100. Still too many? Well, first, how are those deaths spanned across the nation?
• 480 homicides (9.4%) were in Chicago
• 344 homicides (6.7%) were in Baltimore
• 333 homicides (6.5%) were in Detroit
• 119 homicides (2.3%) were in Washington D.C. (a 54% increase over prior years)
So basically, 25% of all gun crime happens in just 4 cities. All 4 of those cities have strict gun laws, so it is not the lack of law that is the root cause.
This basically leaves 3,825 for the entire rest of the nation or about 75 deaths per state. That is an average because some States have much higher rates than others. For example, California had 1,169 and Alabama had 1.
Now, who has the strictest gun laws by far? California, of course, but understand, so it is not guns causing this. It is a crime rate spawned by the number of criminal persons residing in those cities and states. So if all cities and states are not created equally, then there must be something other than the tool causing the gun deaths.
Are 5,100 deaths per year horrific? How about in comparison to other deaths? All death is sad and especially so when it is in the commission of a crime but that is the nature of crime. Robbery, death, rape, assault all is done by criminals and thinking that criminals will obey laws is ludicrous. That's why they are criminals.
But what about other deaths each year?
• 40,000+ die from a drug overdose–THERE IS NO EXCUSE FOR THAT!
• 36,000 people die per year from the flu, far exceeding the criminal gun deaths
• 34,000 people die per year in traffic fatalities, 90% related to alcohol (exceeding gun deaths even if you include suicide)
Now it gets good:
• 200,000+ people die each year (and growing) from preventable medical errors. You are safer in Chicago when you are in a hospital!
• 710,000 people die per year from heart disease. It’s time to stop the double cheeseburgers! So what is the point? If Obama and the anti-gun movement focused their attention on heart disease, even a 10% decrease in cardiac deaths would save twice the number of lives annually of all gun-related deaths (including suicide, law enforcement, etc.). A 10% reduction in medical errors would be 66% of the total gun deaths or 4 times the number of criminal homicides......Simple, easily preventable 10% reductions!
So you have to ask yourself, in the grand scheme of things, why the focus on guns? It's pretty simple.:
Taking away guns gives control to governments.
The founders of this nation knew that regardless of the form of government, those in power may become corrupt and seek to rule as the British did by trying to disarm the populace of the colonies. It is not difficult to understand that a disarmed populace is a controlled populace.
Thus, the second amendment was proudly and boldly included in the U.S. Constitution. It must be preserved at all costs.
So the next time someone tries to tell you that gun control is about saving lives, look at these facts and remember these words from Noah Webster: "Before a standing army can rule, the people must be disarmed, as they are in almost every kingdom in Europe. The supreme power in America cannot enforce unjust laws by the sword, because the whole body of the people are armed and constitute a force superior to any band of regular troops that can be, on any pretense, raised in the United States. A military force at the command of Congress can execute no laws, but such as the people perceive to be just and constitutional; for they will possess the power."
Remember, when it comes to "gun control," the important word is “control," not “gun."

Fwd: Inheritance of freedom is rooted in the Reformation

Inheritance of freedom is rooted in the Reformation

Robert Fain
The beginning is always a good place to start, and our republic begins on July 4, 1776, with those familiar words, “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain inalienable rights, that among these are life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.” 
Thomas Jefferson was tasked by the Continental Congress with the work of setting out the grievances against the king of Great Britain that had made it necessary to dissolve the political bonds that had, until that moment, connected the American colonies to England. In drafting the Declaration of Independence, Jefferson drew heavily from the work of John Locke, whose book, Two Treatises of Government (1689), could not have been written without the Reformation, which had started less than two centuries earlier in 1517.
Locke’s First Treatise attacks the understanding that civil society is founded on a beneficent patriarchalism justified by an appeal to the divine right of kings to rule. His Second Treatise articulated a theory of civil society that is based instead on the equality of persons and on the mutual rights and obligations implied in a contract between the ruler and subjects to protect their lives, liberties and property. These foundational ideas of the equality of persons and of government by leaders whose authority is derived from the free consent of those governed are direct consequences of the religious convictions that inspired and sustained the Reformation.
The Reformation began with concerns about how the Church was managing its life and relationship with the faithful and with the state. When Martin Luther nailed his 95 Theses to the church door for discussion, the internet of his day, he had no idea how far-reaching his actions and those of his fellow reformers would be, for they were not only addressing issues of teaching and doctrine, but setting into motion revolutionary ideas about person-hood and society.
When Luther challenged the abuses in the church’s life and practice he did so from the position that flawed humanity can only be made right with God and with each other through God’s own reconciling initiative that we call grace. The reformers believed that every individual had equal access to the liberating freedom from sin and death and to the life of love and service that Christ offered to all, because every person was created by and could be redeemed by God.
Every person then, was deemed competent to engage these important truths without mediation by king, bishop or priest. The Church was a gathered community of free persons choosing to associate on the basis of shared beliefs and commitments, creating a priesthood not of individuals but of all believers.
Luther’s personal courage in the face of great pressure to abandon his challenge to the church’s status quo centralized the sanctity and liberty of individual conscience, as he famously said “I cannot and will not recant anything, for to go against conscience is neither right nor safe. Here I stand, I can do no other, so help me God.”
The understanding of the individual as the primary building block of civil society and moral community, and of freedom as a component of the religious, political and social identity of human beings would create the social and political structures that over time would become the foundation of the modern democratic traditions on which the free societies of Europe and North America would rest.
(Robert Fain is pastor of the Church of the Good Shepherd in Augusta.)

Kim Jung UN had NO military experience whatsoever before Daddy made him a four-star general.
This snot-nosed twerp had never accomplished anything in his life that would even come close to military leadership.
He hadn't even so much as led a Cub Scout troop, coached a sports team, or commanded a military platoon.
So he is made the "Beloved Leader" Of North Korea.


Terrific!
Oh nuts! I'm sorry...
I just remembered that we did the same thing.

We took an arrogant phony community organizer, who had never worn a uniform, never ran so much as an ice-cream stand, and made him Commander-in-Chief.
A guy, who had never had a real job, worked on a budget, or led anything more than an ACORN demonstration, and we made him "Beloved Leader" of the United States - Twice!
So if you think North Koreans are stupid...
I'm sorry I brought this up....never mind!

Not my words, but I endorse this message:

Hundreds and hundreds of small boats pulled by countless pickups and SUVs from across the South are headed for Houston. Almost all of them driven by men. They're using their own property, sacrificing their own time, spending their own money, and risking their own lives for one reason: to help total strangers in desperate need.
Most of them are by themselves. Most are dressed like the redneck duck hunters and bass fisherman they are. Many are veterans. Most are wearing well-used gimme-hats, t-shirts, and jeans; and there's a preponderance of camo. Most are probably gun owners, and most probably voted for Trump.
These are the people the Left loves to hate, the ones Maddow mocks. The ones Maher and Olbermann just *know* they're so much better than.
These are The Quiet Ones. They don't wear masks and tear down statues. They don't, as a rule, march and demonstrate. And most have probably never been in a Whole Foods.
But they'll spend the next several days wading in cold, dirty water; dodging gators and water moccasins and fire ants; eating whatever meager rations are available; and sleeping wherever they can in dirty, damp clothes. Their reward is the tears and the hugs and the smiles from the terrified people they help. They'll deliver one boatload, and then go back for more.
When disaster strikes, it's what men do. Real men. Heroic men. American men. And then they'll knock back a few shots, or a few beers with like-minded men they've never met before, and talk about fish, or ten-point bucks, or the benefits of hollow-point ammo, or their F-150.
And the next time they hear someone talk about "the patriarchy", or "male privilege", they'll snort, turn off the TV and go to bed.
In the meantime, they'll likely be up again before dawn. To do it again. Until the helpless are rescued. And the work's done.
They're unlikely to be reimbursed. There won't be medals. They won't care. They're heroes. And it's what heroes do.

Fwd: Left wing must stop violent tactics

What Others Say: Left wing must stop violent tactics

An anti-fascist demonstrator jumps over a barricade during a free speech rally Sunday, Aug. 27, 2017, in Berkeley, Calif. (AP Photo/Marcio Jose Sanchez)
The following editorial appeared recently in Newsday:
 
A new battle line is being drawn in the free speech debate. Some on the left are redefining hate speech, in particular, as a form of violence, creating a rationale for using violence to shut it down.The frightening consequences of this shift were seen recently in Berkeley, Calif., where thousands of people gathered to protest racism. They were mostly peaceful. The exception was a group of 100 or more so-called antifa, short for anti-fascists. They signaled their nefarious intentions by dressing in black, wearing masks and carrying shields and pepper spray. And they attacked a small group of right-wing supporters of President Donald Trump assembled in a city park.
We’ve seen violent black-clad protesters at events worldwide, but these agitators have become more active in the United States since Trump’s election. They turned a peaceful protest in Portland, Ore., into a scene of violent chaos, rampaged in Washington on the day Trump was inaugurated, and forced the cancellation of a planned speech by conservative provocateur Milo Yiannopoulos in February by infiltrating about 1,500 peaceful protesters and breaking windows, setting fires and hurling rocks at police — on the campus of the University of California at Berkeley, the birthplace of the modern free speech movement. It was a disgusting di
Such incidents preceded the deadly clash between the white supremacists and neo-Nazis who marched in Charlottesville, Va., and the counterprotesters who decried their odious words, and allowed Trump to try to establish a false moral equivalence between the two.
A similarly troubling development is evolving on campuses. Many liberal students demand protection from speech with which they disagree, calling for “safe spaces” and chanting “shut it down.” Those with canceled appearances include conservative commentator Ann Coulter, former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice and political scientist Charles Murray, who has argued that genetic differences in intelligence exist between races. Some 150 students shouted down Murray’s speech at Vermont’s Middlebury College in March, and masked protesters who might not have been students pushed and shoved Murray and his left-leaning faculty interviewer, who was injured in the confrontation. Dozens of students were rightly disciplined for their roles in the fiasco.
Navigating the free-speech marketplace is not easy. Some ideas are revolting by any reasonable standard. But strength lies in understanding that good ideas will prevail in open debate, and that you cede the moral high ground when you use violence to stake your claim there. Liberals must condemn their philosophical allies who use violence to deny someone else’s free speech, even if those words are vile, just as conservatives must condemn violence employed by some on the extreme right.
White supremacist groups are planning rallies this fall. Opponents will counterprotest. College students are returning to campuses. Yiannopoulos and Coulter have been invited to speak later this month at Berkeley. It’s important we get this balance right.
Hate speech is deplorable. But the only thing that should be shut down are the groups that use violence to stop
