    LOL, glad to hear. But I don't care who does or doesn't. He's on ignore as well (great feature BTW). I can't tolerate people who can't tolerate the views of others and feel the need to lecture (as if I care what a complete stranger says), they sound ridiculous, especially when you don't know someone personally. Hope you're well! GO STEELERS!!!!

    Re: What Next?

    the thread title is whats next

    Today I see a group ( small group ) of protestors on a 4 lane( each way ) freeway in California holding Letters up that spell out Nov 4 it begins while chanting the same thing .... it took Police quite a while to get there in enough numbers to take them all into custody but they where taken in ...

    now we have to wonder what the hell " IT " is ...... guess we find out Nov 4..


    a quick google search and its a antifa ( George Soros ) funded rally across the nation ( we shall see )

    refuse fascism / anti Trump ...

    so expect them to get out of hand and light shit on fire , smash windows , loot buildings and destroy police cars ....

    and expect police to do next to nothing to stop it as they will be highly outnumbered in most cases ....

    I do not like where this is headed because I know the American people will only put up with this lawlessness for so long and once they have had enough they will take matters into their own hands ....

    at that point it will be a very bad day ( many many very bad days ) for all ....

    it sucks

    Without a voice to give a message to the protest, the argument will continue to be about taking a knee during the anthem, and nothing will be done about moving an agenda forward.
    There are numerous statements available all across the internet and social media on why players and others are protesting in this manner. Some are written by the players themselves, some by organizations they support, and others are summary pieces by reporters. The protests encompasses several main issues, and those issues in turn are more then well covered by a variety of independent and relatively impartial sources if you choose to look for them.

    Just because the sportscasters in the moment or the angry yelling pundits on the TV from either side don't have a clue, doesn't mean there are not numerous voices out there attempting to explain in great and specific detail what folks are upset over.

    Google.

    Probably a stupid viral marketing stunt for some lame tech start-up??

    Link to Soros funding antifa (which is not one and the same as anti-Trump) demonstrations?

    Well....the entire first page of results on that exact Google search are clearly nonsense. The second page isn't much better.

    Additionally, it would be really hard for one person to fund "antifa" since it is a loose global coalition of essentially unconnected groups that has no central organization, no real structure or goals, and it isn't clear if it really exists as the tangible force that many believe it to be.

    But I am sensing that we get our "news" from very very different sources.

    perhaps , I avoid all new outlets that have proven time and time again to be anti conservative " No Path to Victory" kind of proves unreliability and trustworthiness

    I personally think most of them were taking a knee just to be assholes.
