Political ramblings.

Taking a knee..

Everyone who is just taking a knee when the anthem is playing or when the saluting the flag is supposed to be done, just stop! I hope you will take knee to the groin next.

It’s ok that you disagree with what the flag and the anthem stand for. There is a place and time to vent your grievances and during those ceremonial times it is not the time. I would not stifle your right to to a protest just the time and venue for it.

And if you dislike this nation so much feel free to leave as despite of your efforts this is still a free nation with open borders for its citizens.

For all the goons on the gridiron with 5th grade educations, I think the $$ you pull in you could affect change in a more effective and personal level, make actual change in someone’s life for the positive.

Public figures not traditionally involved in politics should just shut up about their political views and get on with their job.

There are actors that I have lost all respect for once they opened their voice box and uttered some absolute nonsense. And it has happened from both ends of the spectrum.

Never forget.

And could you? I remember so vividly that morning. When the first one hit I must have been in the shower. I ate my oatmeal and then ok off in the morning driving to work. Listening to my normally funny morning show on radio KS95 fm. This morning not so much fun it was a live commentary of the scene in NY. And I called Barb right away to turn on the tv and report back to me. While listening I heard a live commentary of the second plane hitting the tower. It was just surreal.

At work I immediately checked the news sources online and most of them were just jammed servers could not take the strain and many sites collapsed. We rolled in TVs and tuned them to news channels. Employees gathered in break rooms and meeting rooms with TVs. CEOs message came shortly after.

“Take the day off to deal with this.”

And dealt we have ever since 9-11. Never forgotten.
