  1. This issue is going to effect our free speech eventually, too. From this article: "Meadows and other conservatives in the hearing fiercely argued that speech zones are unconstitutional." In our territory we can setup for public witnessing in a park that has a free speech area the size of a parking lot, I meant space, with limited foot traffic. Correction: the size of a parking space.

  2. Another perspective.. The racial one. Like I said September 2018 is going to be very interesting: There would be no NFL without black players. They can resist the anthem policy. Banning protests is obviously about race. By Shaun Harper May 24, 2018 at 11:16 AM The NFL and its 32 team owners have introduced a policy requiring players to stand for the national anthem. Those refusing to do so have two options: Stay in the locker room until “The Star-Spangled Banner” ends or risk being fined for noncompliance. This is an obvious violation of players’ First Amendment rights. And the issue is inescapably about race. According to data from the Institute for Diversity and Ethics in Sport, 94 percent of NFL franchise owners and 75 percent of head coaches are white. NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell and most of the league’s top executives are white. Blacks own majority stakes in none of the 32 teams. Only seven NFL head coaches in 2017 were black. Yet 70 percent of NFL players are black. This new policy clearly signals white control of black players’ bodies and rights to kneel in peaceful protest against police brutality and other racial issues during the national anthem. Put differently, a majority white group of overseers created and will enforce a policy restricting black players’ freedom of expression. The power is seemingly not with those who use their bodies to earn $7.8 billion for their teams and the league, but rather with whites who profit most from their labor. https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/posteverything/wp/2018/05/24/there-would-be-no-nfl-without-black-players-they-can-resist-the-anthem-policy/ Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G930A using Tapatalk
  3. Ha! If that was my daughter she would have on helmet, mouthguard, elbow guard, hip guard, knee guard, shin guard, ankle guard, pinky toe guard, etc... [emoji23][emoji23]🤣🤣 Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G930A using Tapatalk
  4. Makes me think of friends that attend sporting events that go use the bathroom or go to concession stands for food and drink during the national anthem... Will stadiums and arenas stop 🛑 selling things during the national anthem and make things difficult for the friends? My thoughts are let's watch the patriotic fervor escalate and spread throughout for all events.... I personally believe that this system has a purpose to make everyday living difficult did God's people, young and old. I heard y'all, "DUH!", in unison on that last comment in my post!

  6. "Trump’s desire to force patriotism with NFL kneeling ban echoes Nazi salute incident in 1933" http://www.nydailynews.com/news/world/comparisons-drawn-nfl-protest-ban-nazi-germany-article-1.4010138 President Trump's condemnation of National Football League players who kneel during the national anthem bears a striking resemblance to the Third Reich's punishment of a defiant soccer club. "Stay Home, Nazis Tell Footballers" was the Jan. 6, 1934, Daily News headline on a story from Metz, France, after German soccer players declined to perform the infamous Hitler salute prior to a Christmas Day match.

  8. This is going to interesting come September 2018... (ATLANTA) — NFL owners approved a new policy Thursday aimed at addressing the firestorm over national anthem protests sparked by Colin Kaepernick and polarized by President Trump, permitting players to stay in the locker room during the “The Star-Spangled Banner” but requiring them to stand if they come to the field. Commissioner Roger Goodell said the change was approved unanimously by the owners at their spring meeting in Atlanta, but it was met with immediate skepticism by the players’ union. “We want people to be respectful of the national anthem. We want people to stand,” Goodell said. “That’s all personnel, and to make sure they treat this moment in a respectful fashion. That’s something that we think we owe. We’ve been very sensitive on making sure that we give players choices, but we do believe that moment is an important moment and one that we are going to focus on.” http://amp.timeinc.net/time/5288795/nfl-national-anthem-kneeling-rule
  9. More drama in the desert [emoji906]! The Arizona Department of Education hopes to make changes to science standards, which will affect K-12 districts and charter schools. The changes include removing the word "evolution" in some areas and describing it as a "theory" in others. Some educators and scientists are outraged by the change. https://www.azcentral.com/story/news/local/arizona-education/2018/05/22/arizona-draft-school-science-standards-removes-evolution-diane-douglas-intelligent-design/628941002/ Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G930A using Tapatalk

  11. Officers launched 28 raids on Jehovah's Witness homes in May, often forcing entry, threatening occupants with weapons and seizing literature and other items. Under criminal investigation are 8 Jehovah's Witnesses in pre-trial detention, 1 under house arrest and at least 11 under travel restrictions. Two others are already on trial.

  12. 1 Peter 1:6,7 Because of this you are greatly rejoicing, though for a short time, if it must be, you have been distressed by various trials, 7 in order that the tested quality of your faith, of much greater value than gold that perishes despite its being tested by fire, may be found a cause for praise and glory and honor at the revelation of Jesus Christ. Из-за этого вы очень радуетесь, хотя на короткое время, если это должно быть, вы были огорчены различными испытаниями 7, чтобы испытанное качество вашей веры, имело гораздо большую ценность, чем золото, которое погибает, несмотря на его тестирование огнем, можно найти повод для славы и славы и чести при откровении Иисуса Христа Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G930A using Tapatalk
