This morning, we had a domestic issue here with the fire brigade and electrician. There are three sensible people in the building [or maybe insane to take any responsibility] but for each of those, there is also a prat and this prat was smoking and once having set off the whole building, he refused to take measures. Currently he’s holed up in his place with hands over ears.
That’s the mood in which I post this below:
U.S. soccer star Megan Rapinoe knelt during the national anthem Sunday night before the Seattle Reign’s game against the Chicago Red Stars “in a little nod” to NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernick.
Kaepernick’s refusal to stand for the national anthem to protest racial injustice and minority oppression came to public notice when he remained seated on the bench before a preseason game against Green Bay.
Think it’s pretty clear what level our sympathy is at. The law might be an ass but the law as it stands goes overboard protecting just such a person as this silly cow, against the majority. Every citizen is technically protected by the same laws under our system.
Whether this is carried out or not is another matter. The Founding Fathers in America knew all they could do was leave a framework behind, the rest was up to popular will and pollie will opposed to that.
As for her protest, hell, what harm is she doing? Let her stand out there if she wishes, if she wants to wallow in faux victimhood. No skin of my nose what she does.
