From the uproar, I can only surmise there is a large contingent of NFL players who regularly jump up and down on the American flag, spit on it and then set it on fire.

What? They aren’t doing that?

This hubbub is about silent kneeling?

Hmmmm. Okay, I have an idea. What if the player kneels and PRAYS?

Prayer is not enough? How about if they kneel and pray for our soldiers?

Still no? How about if they kneel and pray that the fake media starts writing only nice things about how wonderful Donald Trump is?

For Pete’s sake people, why is peaceful, silent protest in the United States controversial? The founding fathers, the same ones who gave you that fabulous 2nd Amendment, also gave you the right, and freedom, to protest. This is why America is so great!! Celebrate it!

I do have a suggestion though. If the existence of peaceful protest raises your blood pressure too much, you are free to move to a country where you will never-ever be bothered by protesters – North Korea for example.

Southern Christians voted for Donald Trump without holding their nose. Once you can make that leap, to vote for an admitted female crotch-grabber, how short is the trip to willingly voting for a pedophile?

Teenage-girl-chasing predator Roy Moore has a legitimate chance to win a U.S. Senate seat. His defenders would call him an ‘alleged’ pedophile, and heinous allegations don’t seem to make that much difference in Alabama, if you have an ‘R’ after your name on the ballot.

Alabamans were polled on this, and a surprising number said one of the following: (1) Yes, there are a lot of women who said he came after them when he was in his 30’s and they were 16 or younger, but I don’t believe any of them, (2) Even if he did it, it was a long time ago and people say he is a great guy now, (3) Even if he is a pedophile, that is still preferable to a Democrat.

Congratulations Rush and FOX, your demonization of the left is complete. Nazi-lovers and pedophiles are preferable to Democrats and liberals.
There is a percentage of the ‘genuinely stupid’ in every state, but Alabama tends to live up to its reputation as the stupidest of the stupid.
Alabama Christians who voted for Trump, and now (ugh) Moore, must forfeit any claim to moral superiority in the face of supporting obvious evil.
Maybe the devil makes them do it.

This was all inevitable.

The guilty pleas of Paul Manafort and George Papadopoulas are the tip of the iceberg, and we all know who the Titanic is.
If a candidate surrounded himself with smart/honest people, rather than lackeys, he would hear, “Mr. Candidate, it is against American law to get campaign support from foreign entities, maybe especially Russia.”
If you surround yourself with dunces (see: Papadopoulas and Donald Jr.) or worse, dishonest people (see: Manafort), they may be more than a little willing to collude with a foreign government, especially when that government jams tens of millions of dollars in their pocket.
Honesty Test: When Russians come to you and offer dirt on your campaign opponent, do you (A) Report it to the FBI or (B) Say ‘Cool, when can we get together?’ Hint: Taking foreign support, Russian or otherwise, is verboten!
Even during the campaign we knew that the Donald had his lips firmly attached to V. Putin’s arsenal. His team removed exactly one plank from the GOP convention platform – the one that recommended penalties for Russia as punishment for their intervention in the Ukraine.
As the investigation progresses, Trump fans (and Trump) are going to lose their minds. Everything is a conspiracy! Why aren’t they investigating Hillary?
Trump and his fans are of equal intellect (though DT would tell you he is superior) but we need not fear his supporters, as they do not have the nuclear codes.
Trump, on the other hand… this gentleman is genuinely unstable, and has proven he will do anything or say anything to maintain power.
His first desperate act will almost certainly be to pardon Paul Manafort, and maybe others as it becomes necessary.
This will not be enough to stop the investigation, however. Robert Mueller has many irons in this fire.
When the investigation heats up, and it becomes obvious the pardons will not patch the iceberg holes, Trump’s panic will grow. The best we can hope is for him to resign. At worst he may well do what dictators worldwide have done throughout history, when their countrymen begin to question their fitness for office: Start a war to win support.
Even Nixon didn’t do that, but Trump is not as smart as Nixon. Ego-driven Trump cares only for his image. If he believes a war would make him look heroic, he would not care about the consequences of war. Even the prospect of dead Americans would not deter him.
The law of our land is ‘civilian rule over the military.’ Will our military leaders be able to say ‘no’ when their commander in chief says we must invade Bahrain, or Manila or Russia (just kidding!) to fight terrorists?
