I Normally Keep Politics Out Of This Blog

But I have to say something about Colin Kaepernick’s recent decision not to stand for the Star-Spangled Banner.

Granted the 1st Amendment to the Constitution gives him the right, but by doing this, he dis-respects the flag that is the banner under which so many have died.

He dis-respects the flag that is the banner under which so many have been injured.

He dis-respects this country.

I don't give a shit if he thinks he should not stand up to show pride in a flag for a country that oppresses black people and people of color. This flag represents ALL Americans not just black people and people of color.

When the Star-Spangled Banner is played and it doesn't matter if it is a football, baseball, or any other game, you stand to honor the flag, remove your hat (if you're wearing one) and put your right hand (or hat) over your heart to show respect for the country it represents.

I have absolutely no respect for this person, he might as well have burned the flag. As long as he plays football for the 49'ers, I WILL NOT watch a game even if they make it to the Super Bowl.

If you don't love this country and the flag that represents it, go somewhere else. See how well you're accepted there. 


  1. Here's something that we can agree on. Kaepernick will make more enemies than friends with this dumbass move. He's got the right and he does because of the people that have sacrificed for this ignorant move. I think the 49'ers and the NFL are going to regret their current stance on this.

    1. Hey, Howard, we are so fortunate that this young man and his distraction never became a Denver Bronco. Thank God, Elway, didn't pull the trigger on that trade!

  2. Could not have set it better, Mark!! Kudos to you for taking the time to vent what some of us are thinking about here in the "real" world. Kaepernick's disregard of the symbol that many of us fought and died for makes me sick to my stomach! The 49'ers could and should show him the door and his contract and belief's should be taped to his ass as he leaves!

  3. This male, I won't call him a man, colon has no problem reaping the harvest that this flag presented to him, but to honor it well that's just not his thing. Perhaps he should donate all his salary to the cause he is now taking side with.
    The SOB.
