Three Polls Show Close Gov Race in VA, Quinnipiac Disagrees

A slew of polls for the Virginia gubernatorial race have come out over the last week and we will start with Fox News, which shows the race as a dead-even tie among likely voters.

GOVERNOR – VIRGINIA (Fox News)
Ralph Northam (D) 42%
Ed Gillespie (R) 42%
Cliff Hyra (L) 1%

This poll was done September 17-18 among 507 registered voters. Among all registrered voters, Northam leads 42%-38%. Meanwhile, Suffolk University shows the race also as a dead-heat tie among likely voters.

GOVERNOR – VIRGINIA (Suffolk)
Ralph Northam (D) 42%
Ed Gillespie (R) 42%
Cliff Hyra (L) 3%

Thus poll was done September 13-17 among 500 likely voters. In this poll, Hyra voters are shown leaning 62%-23% in favor of Gillespie. Meanwhile, Mason-Dixon, which has the race at a single-percentage-point lead for Ralph Northam.

GOVERNOR – VIRGINIA (Mason-Dixon)
Ralph Northam (D) 44%
Ed Gillespie (R) 43%
Cliff Hyra (L) 2%

This poll was done September 10-15 among 625 registered voters. We do have one pollster who is going against the grain and that would be Quinnipiac University, which currently pegs the race as a double-digit lead for Northam.

GOVERNOR – VIRGINIA (Quinnipiac)
Ralph Northam (D) 51%
Ed Gillespie (R) 41%
Cliff Hyra (L) 3%

This poll was done September 14-18 among 850 likely voters.

    I guess I should prepare to instantly become a Cliff Hyra fan, once Wes sees these polls.

    First! 1&2, you snooze you lose.

  5. Tina says:

    The story suggests the monitoring started in the summer or fall, and extended into early this year. While Mr. Manafort resigned from the campaign in August, he continued to speak with Candidate Trump. It is thus highly likely that the FBI was listening to the political and election-related conversations of a leading contender for the White House. That’s extraordinary—and worrisome.

    Mr. Comey told Congress in late March that he “had no information that supports those [Trump] tweets.” Former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper was even more specific that “there was no such wiretap activity mounted against—the President-elect at the time, or as a candidate, or against his campaign.” He denied that any such FISA order existed. Were they lying?

  6. Tina says:

    Clapper and comedy liars.

  7. Sean says:

    Gillespie wins, Trump goes bonkers claiming a mandate, and then Gillespie becomes one of the most critical Republican governors…. you heard it….

  8. SanDiegoCitizen says:

    Robbie has a soul mate in Maxime Waters.

    “Closing, she said, “And I know my colleagues get very upset. Some get afraid when I say ‘impeachment,’” she told the cheering mourners.

    “When I get through with Donald Trump, he’s going to wish he had been impeached!” Waters yelled, pointing at the crowd.

    “I feel it very deeply — I am so offended by him and I love my people so much I’m not gonna put up with it.

    “I’m gonna say ‘Impeach 45 everyday,’ ‘Impeach 45 everyday,’ ‘Impeach 45 everyday,’” she said during the eulogy.”

  9. NYCmike says:

    “and then Gillespie becomes one of the most critical Republican governors”

    -Critical of what……the over-spending by “conservative Congressional Republicans”?

  10. Phil says:

    What a beautiful and loving eulogy.

  11. SanDiegoCitizen says:

    13. It was for Dick Gregory, am sure his friends and family appreciated it.

  12. SanDiegoCitizen says:

    “California to sue to stop border wall”.

    There already is a border wall along most the California border between San Diego and Yuma. Its been there for over a decade. Does the California lawsuit want it taken down?

    “On Wednesday, President Donald Trump ordered the “immediate construction” of a wall on the U.S.-Mexico border.

    Memo to the White House from San Diego: Done.

    While Trump has portrayed this as a bold new initiative, reinforced fences have marked the border for decades. Today, they snake across one-third of the border — including 46 miles of the 60-mile boundary between San Diego County and Mexico.

    “For somebody who lives in San Diego, we understand we already have a wall,” said Alejandra Castañeda, a Clairemont resident who researches immigration at Tijuana’s El Colegio de la Frontera Norte. “Not only one wall, but a triple wall in some areas.”

    Last year, The San Diego Union-Tribune published a series called “On the border wall.” It examined our wall, its history and its impact on both sides of the international divide.”

  13. NYCmike says:

    California should sue to stop the tunnels being built…….by Mexican cartels.

  14. SanDiegoCitizen says:

    There are two sides to the claim that football causes brain injury. Here is an article by someone who questions it:

    “I’m a brain scientist and I let my son play football”

    https://www.yahoo.com/amphtml/sports/im-brain-scientist-let-son-play-football-135727314.html

    Two excerpts:

    “Before I began this journey, football was banned in my house. I wouldn’t even watch it on TV because I didn’t want my son to see it and develop a desire to play. Despite my efforts, he discovered football via a video game. He immediately fell in love with the sport and I was forced to do some serious soul searching: Should I allow him to pursue his interest and play?
    Honestly, I was scared of CTE.”

    and

    “The study population in the most recent CTE paper represents a biased sample, as stated by the authors themselves. This means only the brains of self-selecting people who displayed neurological symptoms while living were studied. This is important because this sample was not a reflection of the general football population. The study was based on 202 brains out of the millions of people who’ve played football – 111 of which are former NFL players.
    So, when you hear “99 percent of football players had CTE,” that doesn’t mean that almost every football player will get CTE, and it doesn’t mean your child has a 99-percent chance of developing CTE if he or she plays football. It means 99 percent of a specifically selected study sample had some degree of CTE; not 99 percent of the general football population. This is an important distinction.”

  15. SanDiegoCitizen says:

    Perhaps we should do a comparative risk study of allowing a 16-year old to play football versus obtaining a driver’s license?

  16. Phil says:

    14

    Yeah, I know who it was for and, yes, they no doubt ate it up.

  17. brucefdb says:

    “and then Gillespie becomes one of the most critical Republican governors”

    -Critical of what……the over-spending by “conservative Congressional Republicans”?

    I told you guys Mikey wants only Deadenders to win primaries.

  19. Wes says:

    If Gillespie wins, Republicans will reverse the tide in VA. Mikey csn’t have that. Cuccinelli must retroactively have the nomination declared boid so a convention of fools from the Star Wars canyina scene csn pick Cuccinelli over Gillespie and help Northam retsin the Governor’s Mansion gor the Demd.

  20. Wes says:

    Can’t

    Retain*

    Cantina*

    Dems*

    I’m a horrible speller today.

  21. NYCmike says:

    Wes,

    This is a serious question: Are you ok?

    Is the wedding pressure so intense that your brain is fried, and you just makes things up out of thin air?

    There is help out there…..I am sure lisab could suggest a good therapist…….or priest…..

  22. NYCmike says:

    “I’m a horrible speller today.”

    -It makes no sense whether correct or incorrect spelling…..

  23. NYCmike says:

    Hillary is “Paula” Revere.

    Walt may have known her personally after all!

  24. Wes says:

    Mikey’s candidate for Senate in Alabama, people:

    http://abcnews.go.com/Politics/alabama-senate-candidate-roy-moore-tweets-affirmation-reds/story?id=49942301

    Strange must win the nomination to ensure Dick McAkin can’t lose an Alabama Senate seat to a Democrat.

  25. Tina says:

    Hillary is

    Loon Revere.

  26. NYCmike says:

    http://www.politico.com/story/2017/09/19/tom-price-chartered-planes-flights-242908

    -Instapundit had this story linked – just plain stupid and tone-deaf.

  27. NYCmike says:

    Heh….Roy Moore is now my candidate as well.

    🙂 Can’t make this stuff up……but you can make up wedding dates.

    Wes, would you like to have a Utah-Mike Lee-style-nominating convention in Alabama? Get those trains (voters) to run on YOUR time??

  28. Bitterlaw says:

    L’shanah tovah to Corey. Have a great 5778.

    The rest of us have work tomorrow.

  29. Bitterlaw says:

    Good news, Robbie! The world might end on Saturday. You won’t have to worry about President Trump any more.

    On the downside for you, JEB! will be gone, too.

  30. Wes says:

    Mikey, I never advocated replacing primaries with conventions. I do, however, reserve the right to be critical of Deadenders and hope Republicanx will pick viable csndidates in the ptimaries.

  31. Tina says:

    The recent wiretap news cannot be correct.

    I read here that there was no wiretappoing going out there

  32. BRENT says:

    Ed Gillespie (R is probably ahead by a couple of points

  33. NYCmike says:

    I reserve the right to be critical of any person who runs for office, and hope Republicans will pick viable candidates in the primaries.

    I reserve the right to believe that any Republican would be better than any Democrat in a race having national implications.

    I reserve the right to sometimes choose a candidate who may lose, since I am not all-knowing like Wes.

    I hope that Wes will stop taking his ball and go home every other Presidential election.

  34. NYCmike says:

    Re-weigh the polls!

    Re-lentless!

  35. SanDiegoCitizen says:

    32. “Wes, would you like to have a Utah-Mike Lee-style-nominating convention in Alabama?”

    You notice that Utah went to a primary system after Lee got the convention nomination. The Republican candidate for the special election congressional seat won the primary; the nominating convention went with another candidate.

  36. NYCmike says:

    San Diego,

    I was being sarcastic.

    Ever since Wes asked the mother of his latest child to marry him, he has been taking certain issues, such as my affinity for primaries, as proof of support for any challenger, usually one that he does NOT approve of.

    While I like Mike Lee and would want more men/women like him, I have no preference how each state/party decides to elect their representatives, as long as the rules are known to all aspirants well in advance of any votes being cast.

  37. Tina says:

    Nbc sources report trump is close to ending the iran deal.

  38. Tina says:

    If he ends the iran deal, i bet some of the real,cons against the iranian deal under the presidency of obumbler, will then be for it.

    See possibly mccain, flake, goober..

  39. Phil says:

    Moore would probably win a GE but his nomination opens the door just a bit for the Democratic nominee to have a chance – which in Alabama is ridiculous.

    Moore is the ghost of Akin.

  40. Phil says:

    Ending the Iranian deal?

    No big thing. Why, Jeb would have ended it as well, er, not so much.

  41. Tina says:

    Gowdy: Do you recall any U.S. ambassadors asking that names be unmasked?

    Brennan: I don’t know. Maybe it’s ringing a vague bell but I’m not — I could not answer with any confidence.

    Gowdy continued, asking: On either January 19 or up till noon on January 20, did you make any unmasking requests?

    Brennan: I do not believe I did.

    Gowdy: So you did not make any requests on the last day that you were employed?

    Brennan: No, I was not in the agency on the last day I was employed.

    Lol,, brennan may e ringing a bell.

  42. Tina says:

    I would not trust brennan or clapper to say the truth.

  43. jason says:

    Wobbie hardest hit..

    “In this week’s POLITICO/Morning Consult poll, Trump was at 80 percent approval among Republican voters — up from 73 percent at his low-water mark. Among independents, Trump has bounced 5 percentage points, from 35 percent to 40 percent. Trump’s approval rating was virtually unchanged among Democratic voters, however.

    “Trump’s post-Charlottesville plunge proved to be short-lived, and his approval has stabilized,” said Morning Consult Co-founder and Chief Research Officer Kyle Dropp. “A key driver of this movement appears to be independents. Immediately after Charlottesville, 35 percent of independent voters approved of Trump, and 58 percent disapproved. In this latest poll, that has risen to 40 percent approval and 52 percent disapproval.”

  44. jason says:

    The change in Indy sentiment is remarkable…

    35/58 is 23 pts
    40/52 is 12 pts

    That’s a big shift.

  45. Tina says:

    Manaforts lawyer calling formthe wiretaps to be released.

    Is he bluffing?

  46. SanDiegoCitizen says:

    41. Mike Lee is a good man. At the time the Utah Republican Party needed to be shaken up a bit. Hopefully Hatch retires and Romney is his replacement.

  47. NYCmike says:

    Robbie to call Sharyl Attkisson a “Trump-apologist” in 3…..2……1……

    “CG” to say Sharyl Attkisson would NOT investigate Trump if he shot someone on Fifth Avenue in 3…2…..1…..

  48. Tina says:

    We need some new muh russian news.

  49. JC says:

    As I’ve said before, I agree with PDT’s decision to support Strange for one reason.

    Whether he wins or looses, he will still be senator for the rest of the year. He will vote on healthcare. He will vote on taxes. He will vote on immigration. In a situation where every vote counts, why risk loosing an ally due to a bitter loss?

    I have no idea if Strange would vote against the president just out of petty revenge. But I know McCain did. I know others have.

    Moore, despite being off-putting, is more ideologically grounded. So Trump not supporting him in the primary wont cost him a vote. And should he beat Strange, Trump will offer his full support in the general to soothe over relations.

  50. NYCmike says:

    Well stated, JC.

  51. Phil says:

    McCain is the poster child for “petty”.

    Doubt anyone else is going to act like McCain.

  52. BRENT says:

    as long as jeff session is a/g nobody will be prosecuted!!! jeff session was a swamp plant and thats why lois lerner is getting off with no charges,same will happen to koskinen,hillary will not get a special council and the unmasking scandal will be swept away with no charges either imo

    JEFF SESSION IS THE SWAMP AND HE WILL PROTECT IT TILL THE END !!!

  53. Bitterlaw says:

    The Vietnam War is an excellent series. It is pretty balanced but leans left. It does not portray the Americans as demons or the VC or Noth Vietnamese as saints. (Unlike the American Civil War between the virtuous Union and evil Confederacy). Communist atrocities are detailed. It focuses on the known history as well as individual stories – sometimes troops involved in the same battle on opposite sides.

    Of course, Jason won’t watch it.

  54. janz says:

    Morning Consult had another poll asking how many Hillary voters regretted their 2016 vote, as well as how many Trump voters regretted their’s. 9% regretted voting for Trump vs 13% who wanted to redo their Hillary vote. As they say, the more she talks the more people dislike her. And, on this book tour she has been making an absolute fool of herself!

    My husband has been glued to the Vietnam series. IMO, it has been fairly balanced, except for showing how much political “ego” was involved in keeping the war going.

  55. Tina says:

    http://www.thegatewaypundit.com/2017/09/former-spy-chief-james-clapper-cnn-possible-president-trumps-voice-recorded-paul-manafort-wiretap-video/

    Clapper now ad,its president trump’s voice possibly recorded on wiretaps.

    Lol, clapper. Are you now doncerned with making false statements and impeding?

  56. Bitterlaw says:

    Janz- I don’t know what to think about that war. In the context of the Cold War, it made sense to stop the Communists. In hindsight, who can say? The war could have been fought differently. Maybe the outcome would have been different. Maybe not.

  57. Wes says:

    Jim Justice endorses Joe Manchin for reelection.

    ::facepalm::

    That said, I don’t know if Justicd actually helps Manchin by endorsing him. The Governor wasn’t overwhdlmingly popular when elected and hasn’t been astoundingly popular since whether as a Republican or as a Democrat.

  58. Wes says:

    66 comes from the same guy bobs his head along with his fellow jingoists about the absolute necessity of the 2003 Gulf War despite the obvious fact that that war was based on lies and excuses and had some of the worst planning and execution of any war in recent history.

  59. Tina says:

    It was just possible, you know.

    Just possible.

  60. Bitterlaw says:

    68 comes from a guy who described slavery as simply “wrong” and wanted the Confederacy to win. He is also incapable of enduring 4 seasons.

  61. Wes says:

    One of us doesn’t spend all day every day obsessing over a war that happened over 150 years ago. The other of us needs to get over the fact that the side he wanted to win won.

  62. NYCmike says:

    “The other of us”

    -Wes the Wordsmith!

  63. NYCmike says:

    “Jim Justice endorses Joe Manchin for reelection.”

    -Not a surprise at all.

    He actively pushed Democratic policies. He is a Democrat at heart.

    The Republican Party should have shunned him.

  64. Cash Cow TM says:

    “…The Republican Party should have shunned him.”

    Republicans don’t shun.

    That is the Amish.

  65. NYCmike says:

    https://www.redstate.com/slee/2017/09/20/dont-mistake-rand-pauls-political-move-obamacare-morality/

    -Wrong decision.

    But thanks for telling us now, rather than later.

    What are the 3 or 4 others waiting for?

    Whoring for a better deal?

  66. NYCmike says:

    I thought the Amish only shun other Amish.

    As Republicans, we have no such rules about shunning.

    We shun, shun, shun all the way home! Like the little piggies!

    Or until Daddy takes the T-Bird away!

    Where is Rudy G.?

    I want him leading out the Dems (and maybe some Republicans) in their perp walks!

  68. jason says:

    Of course, Jason won’t watch it.”

    Again, you don’t have to eat a whole egg to know its bad.

    I saw the “lead” into one of the segments.

    Basically it was about how the Vietnam War “changed the way Americans view patriotism”, code for the left’s justification for scumbags like Kaepernick.

    But I am glad you enjoyed it.

  69. jason says:

    Moore is a deadender moron. An idiot.

    “Ideologically grounded” my ass.

    He would be a horrible embarrassment to Rs.

    Maybe he could win the GE in AL but I certainly would not vote for him.

    A really repulsive and loathsome person.

  70. Walt says:

    I predicted that Gov. Justice would endorse Manchin.

    Whether Justice had a D or an R after his name.
    ________________________
    The more present and pressing issue in WV is a special election to approve Gov. Justice $1.6B Road Bond measure.

    In their summer meeting, the GOP State Executive committee (over a hundred people people from all 55 counties) unanimously came out in opposition to the road bond which will be voted on on Oct. 7.

    Republican lawmakers are split. Some favor and some oppose for various reasons–including they say they don’t trust the governor, don’t trust the WV DOH, recent past corruption in the WV DOH, conspiracy theories from the far far rightists, and the state version of the Freedom Caucus is actively opposing.

    Democrat lawmakers are split. Some are still butt hurt over Justice switching from D to R, and some are butt hurt over D Gov. Justice harsh words directed at D legislators.

    I favor it.

    The assumed interest rate on the bond will be about 3% or so. The annual rate of inflation on road construction in about 5%. We can build the infrastructure now for ultimately less money and pay back with inflated dollars.

    WV voters have only rejected two state road bond proposals. Both times were during bad economic times. WV is in bad economic times. Some WV counties recently voted down school bond issues put before them.

    Unions and businesses both have come out in favor.
    Outcome will be determined by turnout (which will probably be about 15%), and which geographic sections of state have biggest turnout.
    *********************************************
    If it fails…Justice gets another black eye.

    If it passes…Justice’s political stock rises and his endorsement of Manchin becomes more important.

    Manchin is “smooth” and still well liked by many Rs in WV. He has more charisma than anyone since Sen. Robert Byrd.

    Rep. Jenkins and WV AG Morrisey primary battle will also suck money away from whoever wins the primary and could leave both Rs bloodied and the winner damaged going into the 2018 GE.

  71. NYCmike says:

    ““Ideologically grounded” my ass.”

    -Aliens from outer space are reading this and saying….”these A-Holes are complex characters!”.

    In the Vietnam War episode on Tuesday, I was amazed the commander of the base in the highlands that was under assault and outnumbered by a huge number of VC/NVA grabbed a journalist who was there and showed him how to operate a machine gun.

    Journalist said he was a civilian, and commander said there are no civilians here. Told the journalist to fire at the little brown men outside the wire. Don’t shoot the little brown men (Montgard tribesmen allies) inside the wire–they belong to me.

    -I’ll give Graham some credit here, as he is a very good politician.

    One observation: it seems to me like he did NOT want Cassidy to say too much, and wanted the interview to end rather quickly.

  85. NYCmike says:

    https://townhall.com/columnists/calthomas/2017/09/21/the-un-once-useless-now-useful-n2384183

    -This was interesting: “This may have been Trump’s finest speech as president. Written by Stephen Miller, Trump’s senior policy adviser, it was clear about the president’s objectives and concise about how he and any nations that wish to join him might hope to achieve them.”

    jason,

    Agree somewhat, but in all of these articles, I see a lack of awareness about what would have happened under a Clinton Presidency. They keep going back to the “party of Trump” BS. I just don’t see that.

    In my view, and I have said this before, the main problem has been the lack of conservative legislation coming out of Congress. Trump would have signed any bills that re-enforced his image as a deal-maker.

    Others disagree…..going forward will be interesting.

    It is like some of these guys are just sitting around brainstorming ways to further tank the ratings. The league reminding white guys watching football on Sundays what a racist country they live in is the ticket alright. They won’t do it of course. Goodell has no spine but he isn’t stupid, let alone suicidal.

    Over and under on the ratings drop in November if they were stupid enough to do this? I’ll start the bidding at minus 20 percent ratings drop.

But when you look at him through a pinhole, so to speak, you can see that in his way he loves the country; that his instincts run to smaller government, lower taxes, and respect for the Constitution; and that he has surrounded himself with many serious and accomplished people. Who knows? A lot of good may yet come of this strange moment.”

    I find it hilarious that the Dems interviewed about Nicholson think the fact that he was a Dem in college and pro abortion then, before he served 2 tours in Iraq,got married and had kids, and changed his mind, is something they could use against him in a general election. So silly. If anything, that would be a weakness from the right, certainly not a weakness from the middle.

  114. NYCmike says:

    wvally,

    At this point, I trust the Fitgerald guy quoted at the end of the article, since he has actively worked with Scott Walker to turn that state around for its citizens, and for Republicans.

    Nicholson may be all that he is made out to be, but it would not hurt him to lose the primary to someone else this time (who hopefully can beat Baldwin), and plan for the next election when Ron Johnson retires.

    i have tried to have this discussion with a transgendered younger friend of mine, not about trump but about that guy in goodle who said women think differently and this harms them in the computer fields.

    my friend was completely focused on the young man in google and how bad a person he was and considered his message completely bigoted and thus refuses to even discuss the ideas — because the ideas must be bigoted if the man is a bigot.

    which means that you can never discuss the merits, or lack thereof, of the idea that women may socialize differently than men … which of course is a not what a transgendered person would like to hear, because that makes it difficult for them to be women

    There is no bipartisan fixing of Obamacare…just bailing it out. We are stuck with a imploding Obamacare and a pissed off base that will likely punish the GOP for failing to act on any type of repeal once we finally had control of Congress and the White House. We are genuinely screwed.

  124. SanDiegoCitizen says:

    The fiasco taking place among Senate Republicans now regarding Obamacare explains why Trump is talking with Schumer and Pelosi. You cannot herd cats.

    McCain is clearly not going to do anything that will help Trump, even when it benefits the country. He has a right to be angry over the things Trump said in the campaign about him, but appears to be reversing his previous Obamacare repeal vote out of spite against Trump. His legacy now will focus on him being a cranky, vindictive old man, who often made stupid choices — Palin was an example.

    Never fear, Mikey, for I have found your ideal candidate for Wisconsin Senate:

    Who is Hovde? You ask.

    Well, Hovde challenged Tommy Thompson in the 2012 primary. He claimed Tommy Thompson was insufficiently conservative.

    I know, I know. Being able to win an election automatically makes one insufficiently conservative for you and your Deadender ilk. That’s thd only way the Governor who invented welfare reform could possibly be insufficiently conservative to anyone.

    In any event, Hovde–an elitist conservative millionaire as opposed to the leftist types normally found in Wisconsin–nuked Thompson, running a vitriolic campaign and forcing the former Governor to drain his campaign account before the general election.

    Meanwhile, Tammy Baldwin had an uncontested primary.

    When she and Thompson faced off, she easily outspent him and won 51-45.

    That was your Deadenders at work, Mikey.

    In any event, I imagine an endorsement by you of Hovde after this recap of recent history in the Badger State is sure to appear quickly.

    Deadenders must unite to ensure real Republicans lose Senate races after all.

    Maybe they should take away Macs healthcare and let him fend for himself, and struggle like so many others with paying for their healthcare. What a lying, traitorous, dishonest politician. He has always been for himself and always will be. This fool loves basking in the glory of the media and his fellow Dems who use him, useful idiot, anyone? He outright misled his constituents on this issue and I think he should be called a traitor for that. Maybe they can get his vote if they promise him a war where thousands of young Americans can die so he can revel in the glory of being the warmonger he is.

  158. hugh says:

    So why do these idiots keep trying to repeal Obamacare at this point? I do not believe conventional wisdom. We do not own Obamacare so long as we do nothing. We do own that we did not repeal it, but that is not going happen. The best thing we can do right now is let Obamacare fail on its own, which it will. The dems have overplayed their hands. They are telling everyone Obamacare is doing great it just needs a few tweaks. When it crashes and burns in many state in two years who will look like fools. Dems who said is was great or us who said it needed to be replaced with something better. Anymore time on Obamacare is a waste of energy move on to tax reform. Start with corporate and then move to individual.

  159. Tgca says:

    Just because Mac was a pow does not give him an eternal license for bad behavior. He has milked his pow status and fathers influence for decades to make an extremely comfortable life for himself while so many others who suffered the same pow fate did not. No one questions he suffered as a pow, but that doesn’t make him a good or admirable guy. Look how he has treated others and his 1st wife, and his corrupt behavior in the S&L crisis. I’ve looked the other way before to give him the benefit of the doubt but I gave up on him years ago. I do not respect this guy. Even war heros, if you consider him such, can be dishonest and behave dishonorably. Let’s remember Timothy McViegh was a decorated veteran but also dishonored himself with his traitorous act. Though I am not equating murder with betraying the American people on healthcare, I like many, find Mac to be traitorous to his constituents and the GOP, as he outright lied and misled them. What scum this guy is.

    Agreed. But many still love the Lost Cause revisionist b.s. and statues of traitors.

    As for the weather, if you are trying to pretend that the 4 distinct seasons of Pennsylvania are similar in temperature and length to those in Southern states, that would make you a regional climate denier.

  174. Mr.Vito says:

    Again… “Bless your heart” is a single phrase. It is used both in a positive and a negative light, and you use it to generalize an entire culture’s genuineness. The weather you described originally applies to southern Florida, not the rest of the state, and now you are moving the goalposts… Southern Florida has more in common with the north than the south by your other standards as it is filled with northerners.

    There are very few who pine for the days of slavery, and perhaps if you would stop engaging in hate them for the sins of their grandparents, they would stop feeling the need to defend their culture today reflexively.

    And Obamacare exchanges are not failing. Tom Price, otherwise known as the millionaire who has taxpayers pay for private jets, has been derelict in enforcing Obamacare regulations. Not only that, the few states that have been unsuccessful under the aca are gop-dominated states that haven’t expanded medicaid.

    If Obamacare were so bad, the GOP would actually be able to easily pass a bill that repeals Obamacare that can muster popular support. Instead every bill polls in the 20%.

    They know what is really going on

  197. Bitterlaw says:

    I never heard the expression “Bless his heart” until I watched a show where Toby Keith and some other country singers discussed it as an insult. I researched it and found multiple sources – all Southern – that confirmed its meaning.

  198. Bitterlaw says:

    While I don’t believe in depression as a medical condition, I do believe in truly bad weeks and difficulties. Fortunately, I do not own a gun and I hate heights. I will be around for awhile. Probably.

  199. Mr.Vito says:

    Bitter saw it on TV and the net. Please come inform all my neighbors that they are insulting one another daily.

    Believe me, they will tell you to GFY to your face instead of saying Bless Your Heart.

  200. Bitterlaw says:

    Mr. Vito does not like the research. Maybe he can give me some acceptable reasons to hate the South that meet his delicate standards.

  201. Mr.Vito says:

    I do not like shoddy research with false conclusions. I saw on TV and the net that ‘nigga’ is a phrase that is used to refer to your buddies… please inform the people downtown, and let me know how it goes if you survive.

  202. Bitterlaw says:

    I greatly respect people who say GFY. The meaning is clear and it is sincerely expressed.

  203. Bitterlaw says:

    Tell me the acceptable reasons to hate the South. I don’t want to be hurt but I will continue to hate the region.

  204. Mr.Vito says:

    I can’t give you acceptable reasons to uniformly hate any people group… that’s your thing.

  205. Wes says:

    Not being a bigoted asswipe actively creating reasons to hate an entire region of the country might be a good place to start in finding legitimate reasons to the hate the South, Bitter.

    Of course as a fanboy of places well known for corrupt politicians, maybe you should skip looking for reasons to hate other parts of the country altogether.

  206. Bitterlaw says:

    Don’t be hurt, delicate sock. Aside from softball players, I am inclined to dislike almost everybody.

  207. Wes says:

    Typical Bitterlaw. Anyone who calls him out on his bigotry is “delicate.”

    How original. 🙄

  208. Bitterlaw says:

    Delicate flower checks in. Once again, he lies to pretend that I like place BECAUSE of corrupt politicians rather than IN SPITE OF corrupt politicians.

    Bless his heart.

  209. Bitterlaw says:

    I’m off to research suicide. I will be back later.

  210. Mr.Vito says:

    “Don’t be hurt, delicate sock. ”

    Hurt by what? When I see an untruth I correct it… I already advised everyone not to try to convince you to like the South. I cannot force you to not sound like a bigot… I can only advise you that you do.

  211. Mr.Vito says:

    Maybe I AM being too delicate to Mr.Bitter… I guess I could take the Wes approach, but don’t see the point.

  212. Bitterlaw says:

    So if I hate the South, I can’t say it. Got it. By the way, hoping and praying to die absolutely does not work.

  213. Wes says:

    Vito, I know Bitterlaw’s never going to like the South. Changing his mind isn’t my goal and wouldn’t work. That said, because of his overt bigotry, I have absolutely no qualms in pointing out the very real and documented significant flaws in the two areas he expresses such a deep affinity for.

  214. Mr.Vito says:

    “So if I hate the South, I can’t say it.”

    Say anything you want. Understand the consequences.

    Easy peasy.

  215. Wes says:

    I like the hypocrisy Bitterlaw displays in accusing me of lying when I never used the term “because of” in my post. I never said he likes Philadelphia and New Jersey because of their systemic corruption. It is, however, clear he’s perfectly willing to ignore the corruption of those areas in extolling why he wants to live there.

  216. Bitterlaw says:

    Zzzzzzzzzz. I have always said politics and taxes are irrelevant to my choice of where to live. I don’t ignore corruption. It is irrelevant to my decision. I hope the corrupt politicians go to jail.

  217. Bitterlaw says:

    By way, suicide research is a waste. All the sites lead you to prevention phone numbers and groups. Oh well. I would just F it up anyway.

  218. SanDiegoCitizen says:

    “President Trump: “Wouldn’t you love to see one of these NFL owners, when somebody disrespects our flag, to say, ‘Get that son of a b—- off the field right now… He is fired,” Trump said on Friday at a rally for Alabama Senate Republican candidate Luther Strange.”

    Yes I would.

  219. Wes says:

    You can’t even make a cohesive argument, Bitter.

    If you consider corruption irrelevant, then you do ignore it.

    As I say, I will continue to point out the real, documented, and legitimate flaws of New Jersey and Pennsylvania so long as you continue to manufacture artificial reasons to hate an entire region of the country.

    You have the right to post your thoughts. Others have a right to respond.

    No free lunches.

    I’d say I’m sorry I get under your skin so easily by pointing this out, but honestly I’m not.

  220. Wes says:

    Goodell won’t let the players do a mass kneeldown, SDC. He knows it would cause a ratings plummet.

    Like Bitterlaw, the players have a right to engage in their actions. Like Bitterlaw, they also have a right to suffer the consequences of those actions.

  221. Mr.Vito says:

    http://www.blackenterprise.com/news/top-10-cities-for-african-americans/

    Today’s south is generally more attractive for African Americans than the north anyway.

  222. Mr.Vito says:

    It’s about opportunity.

  223. TrumpIsPeteWilson says:

    Who cares if Insurance companies fail? As long as consumers get access to affordable, quality health insurance.

    Insurance is about pooling risks. There needs to be only a few players to keep the others honest. It is literally an industry based on economies of scale.

    It’s so f*cking sad to see “conservatives” crying about insurance companies going out of business or leaving markets. Big corporations who were making their money trying to deny sick people coverage are going out of business now that they need a constructive business model.

    BOO HOO.

    Idiots are people who seek information that reinforces their existing beliefs to the exclusion of all else.

    That’s what you fools are.

  224. Wes says:

    Idiots are people who seek information that reinforces their existing beliefs to the exclusion of all else.

    I sense a bit of projection in the post the above quote came from.

  225. Bitterlaw says:

    Artificial reasons = Reasons Wes Does Not Like.

    I said that I want corrupt politicians to go to jail. Delicate Flower twists that mean I ignore it.

    Wes must be a great real estate agent. “I’m sorry that I can’t sell you a house in this town but the last Mayor was convicted of tax fraud. The head of the Football Booster Club is cheating on her husband.”

  226. Mr.Vito says:

    “… sad to see “conservatives” crying about insurance companies going out of business or leaving markets…”

    Well… they believe in choice and competition.

    “Big corporations who were making their money trying to deny sick people coverage are going out of business now…”

    Sick people need health CARE, not health INSURANCE.

    “It is literally an industry based on economies of scale.”

    And they could get coverage before Obamacare through the very pools you are talking about, even after not buying insurance before they were sick.

    ……………………….

    If this were car insurance, no one would say or is saying a thing. No one would agree to pay more so that people who have gotten into accidents can suddenly get them covered. The government is not (yet) interested in forcing a regulated marriage between car insurance and car repair and maintenance.

    The Obamacare disaster was forced upon people through an emotional plea instead of a rational one. People have always had access to health CARE… until Obamacare at least, when many have been priced out of getting anything covered by insurance through rising premiums and deductible.

    If Obamacare was car insurance, the poor would have Mustangs and the middle class would have Camry’s with no tires.

  227. Wes says:

    Hehehehehehe…

    I’m guessing Bitterlaw doesn’t know agents often have to sell houses by glossing over negative associations with property, thus making them IRRELEVANT to a client’s decision and IGNORING them.

    See what I did there, Bitter?

    If I were trying to sell you a house, I’d never say anything about the politicians using graft and corruption to gouge you and keep themselves in power before going to prison or the neighbor who waits till her husband deploys to become the town slut.

    I would, however, point out the excellent local schools and the breathtaking lakefront view from the back porch.

  228. Bitterlaw says:

    Thanks for walking into the trap, Wes. You just admitted that the schools and view are more important than politicians in choosing where to live. You gloss over them because you know that the schools are still excellent and the view is still great regardless of the politicians.

  229. Wes says:

    I always thought lawyers paid attention to details to craft their arguments. Clearlly I was wrong.

    I explicitly stated I would IGNORE the negatives of an area–corrupt politicians and the town whore–in favor of talking up the positives–great schools and a view.

    You really should try to keep up in the future.

    Ryan Lizza @RyanLizza

    Lol,, hack lizza. Make it racial. However, he has also attacked flub who wilted, little marco, etx.

  233. Tina says:

    Nfl commisioner defends his players, while atttendance and tc ratings drop.

    Lots of reasons, bad product, bad teams, dumb officials, stupid stadium, stupid coaches, owners, and players.

    See, i just attacked the 49ers.

  234. Mr.Vito says:

    They all disrespect our country?

  235. Mr.Vito says:

  236. Tina says:

    At a Friday night rally in Alabama, Trump said about players who protest during the anthem, “Get that son of a bitch off the field right now, out, he’s fired. He’s fired!”

    ESPN’s Jeff Darlington reported that the Bills locker room has been “so emotional” over Trump’s comments, they’ll discuss them at a Saturday night team meeting.

    We are phuqued as a nation if so emotional, is true.

  237. Cash Cow TM says:

    Mr. Viito is schooling people here.

    The logic is maddening to some.
    And causes cognative dissonance.
    Thumbs up to the sock.
    Well done.

    (You don’t often hear a cow say “well done”.)

  238. Bitterlaw says:

    So Wes admits that you can ignore politicians and be happy where you live. Wes can be taught.

    He still thinks that saying corrupt politicians should go to jail is the same as saying to ignorie them but only so much can be expected from a masseuse.

  239. Phil says:

    I cannot stand the NFL.

    Will not watch black lives matter in shoulder pads. That’s about all it is any longer.

  240. Phil says:

    I cannot stand the NFL.

    Will not watch black lives matter in shoulder pads. That’s about all it is any longer.

    That said, Trump needs to put a sock in it. You don’t fire players over kneeling during the NA. To say they should is a political loser.

    I don’t get this guy.

  241. Tina says:

    I think they moved on to not inviting the gs warriors to the wh, or disinviting them, phil. Hard to keep track of who is or is not offended in this, phil

    Curry said no, kd said no. Onths ago, the coach kerr went both ways.

    I like all of them.

    We need the jebots to weigh in.

  242. Wes says:

    Right, Bitter. You really give a good goddamn about seeing the child-molesting Senator from the state you aant a beach home in goes to jail so long as you have seasons.

    Stop insulting my intelligence, shyster.

  243. Tina says:

    He takes a commonly held sentiment — most people don’t like the NFL protests — and states it in an inflammatory way guaranteed to get everyone’s attention and generate outrage among his critics. When those critics lash back at him, Trump is put in the position of getting attacked for a fairly commonsensical view.

  244. Phil says:

    The Warriors? From San Francisco, right?

    Catering to their northern California loons.

    Nothing to see here. Standard lefty California operating procedure.

  245. Tina says:

    Trump used the word firing, to be dramatic.

    Firing likely meant, get them off the field.

  246. Tina says:

    Phil, they are tedhnically bases on oakland. They did play ast the sf warriors years ago. They may return to that name agaun when the new arena opens in sf.

    Theynare shared by both oakland, sf.

  247. Tina says:

    They played at the cow palace back in 1974/75 at the cow palace in daly city, just outside of sf.

  248. Bitterlaw says:

    Come to my house, scumbag, and tell me I don’t want pedophiles to rot in jail. I have called for them to be executed for years here.

    Why do you have so many careers – welder, masseuse, real estate agent…? Can’t you just be good at something?

  249. SanDiegoCitizen says:

    “they also have a right to suffer the consequences of those actions.”

    Agree. If you are an employee doing your job, and you engage in conduct that hurts your employer’s business, you can be canned. The clown who first did it should have been suspended.

    The NFL does have a solution. It needs to get all those millennial snowflakes to begin to watch football. Time for stadiums to have cappuccino bars and introduce E-football. Important to end gender identification among football players; and teach them to lose their toxic masculinity. And this physical contact among players must end, we need non-contact football — play the game with text messaging –

    How Sports Can Unlearn Toxic Masculinity

    Cleaning up youth sports culture in America and standing alongside teammates of color.
    By Dave Zirin

    his week we speak to Joe Ehrmann, former NFL player and founder of InSideOut Coaching: How Sports Can Change Lives.

    Also, I speak about the solidarity statement we organized to support Seattle Seahawk Michael Bennett, in his efforts to challenge the violence and racial profiling of the Las Vegas police; a solidarity statement that brought together people from Angela Davis to Colin Kaepernick.

    We have a Just Stand Up for friend of the program, Jemele Hill, after she tweeted out truths about No. 45… and then was subsequently scolded by her employer. ESPN, you can Just Sit Down.

  260. Bitterlaw says:

    well if you execute them, doesn’t that mean they won’t rot in jail?

    Depends on what you do with their bodies.

    I know that no state would execute them but it should be a real life sentence. If their fellow prisoners want to kill them, that is a plus.

    Trump is right though. Let them protest but we can protest back by turning off the tube and boycotting their games. Once it starts to hit their pockets, I guarantee you the trend will end as this is all for show for these hypocrites.

    It’s a joke that Goodell and owners are suggesting these guys should command respect for their actions. Uh, like respect with the way they treat women and others. I think it’s takes real chutzpah to say they should be respected when a large number of these athletes have behavioral issues that are appalling to most Americans. Let’s face it, America has provided them an opportunity they would likely not have gotten elsewhere on this Earth.

  307. Phil says:

    ……or, he managed to turn a bunch of flag disrespecting social justice warriors with little support into “victims”. They had no real support before and outside the hard left bubble. now? Expect an epidemic of take a knee and other disrespectful acts now that they think Trump has given them the “moral high ground” and violated their “rights”

    Trump is an idiot. Played right into the hands of the left. I guess he can’t help himself. Way to go, Donald. Moron.

    Here is the police blotter for the arrests of NFL players:

    I don’t disagree with anything you say about these social justice primos. Trump needs to be smart, however. Why play into their hands? I don’t get it. Expect a slew of polls asking things like “should athletes be fired for their political views”. Disingenerous to be sure, but you can imagine the headline results. Trump just gave the left the ultimate gift.

  310. wvally says:

    To Phil’s point–up to this point the knee has been to protest “police brutality”. Now will it be to protest Trump?

  311. Sheeple, Jr. says:

    The “silent majority” is cheering for The Donald on this matter. The media and their polling outfits will always criticize and fudge.
    Look at how so many folks are tired of the disrespect and violence at institutions of higher learning.
    Freshmen enrollment at the Univ. of Missouri is way down because of its SJW shenanigans.

    How is your wife feeling?

    If you are correct, it will hurt the sport even more.
    wvally- a President with a low 40’s approval rating is not doing well, but he is not in “Attila the Hun” territory like Bush43 was after Hurricane Katrina.

  313. wvally says:

    A’s rookie catcher Bruce Maxwell, who earlier in the day profanely bashed President Trump on Instagram, became the first major-league player to kneel during the national anthem on Saturday before Oakland’s 1-0 win at the Coliseum.

  314. Wes says:

    According to some political science professor, Bill Nelson comes out of the Irma aftermath better than Rick Scott because of–drumroll please–Nelson’s embrace of the idea of global warming.

    As we know, the idea of global warming is something everyone cares about and moves voters en masse.

    Do these clowns really live in this much of a bubble?

  315. wvally says:

    And now Trump this morning calls on Americans to boycott the NFL:

    If NFL fans refuse to go to games until players stop disrespecting our Flag & Country, you will see change take place fast. Fire or suspend!

  316. Sheeple, Jr. says:

    Here is the video of the National Anthem played in London today prior to the Baltimore- Jacksonville NFL game.
    It appears that at least a dozen players on each team knelt. They were all AA’s.

    Kneeling in MLB will be somewhat muted since over 35% of players are now Hispanic and they will not dis the USA.

  318. Tina says:

    Ray Lewis also took a knee. I thought he worked dor one of the media conglomerates.

    We need muh russian news.

    Bired with muh nfl.

  319. Tina says:

    I used to watch several games each sunday, but since 2015, none. It changed. Granted, not so much about the kneeelimg, it,was and is the product.

  320. wvally says:

    Here’s your muh Russia news Tina:

    Matthew Whitaker, a former U.S. attorney for the Southern District of Iowa during the George W. Bush administration, has been appointed as Sessions’ chief of staff, a Justice Department spokesman said Friday.

    Whitaker, a CNN legal commentator, wrote last month that President Donald Trump was “absolutely correct” when he said it was a “violation” for special counsel Robert Mueller to investigate the Trump family’s finances.

    “It is time for Rosenstein, who is the acting attorney general for the purposes of this investigation, to order Mueller to limit the scope of his investigation to the four corners of the order appointing him special counsel,” Whitaker wrote.

  321. Wes says:

    I’m skipping the NFL today.

  322. Phil says:

    345

    Please tell me that he didn’t do that. How’s it going to look when the boycott falls on its face?

    On the other hand, he issued another tweet this morning telling “rocket man isn’t going to be around much longer”. keep poking a mad man until he starts a war? A mad man with nukes”?

    Why, Donald? No reason for this? Why?

  323. Phil says:

    Well, I’m skipping it as well, Wes but have since the latter part of last season.

    I get my football fix on Saturday. Those college games yesterday beat anything out of the NFL.

  324. Bitterlaw says:

    I hope enough fans protest that I can finally get season tickets to the Eagles. Separation of Sports and State.

    I like watching football. Why should I let anti-American morons take that from me? I think the owners have every right to suspend them and I wish they would. However, I have no impact on this issue.

  325. Tgca says:

    I disagree. Trump just duped them again. These folks went on foreign soil and kneeled to the US Anthem but stood for God Save the Queen. They hurt themselves and when the GOP and Indys watch a bunch of AA men behav this way, it only hurts their cause more. This is what pisses middle America off to see this.

    Trump said what most were thinking and the radical left will pile on as most Americans think WTF? Trump gave them an audience for a backlash and not to expand their childish and Ill-conceived behavior.

    Love or hate Trump, you can’t beat him in how to use the media and the libs to his advantage.

  326. Bitterlaw says:

    I prefer the NFL to college. I just don’t have an attachment to the big-time schools. I pretty much only watch Lafayette and Villanova because I went there and Temple because my son and money go there.

    The big-time college players are just as dirty as the professionals in terms of abusing women and committing crimes. They just have less money.

  327. Phil says:

    …and for the record, I believe diplomacy with Kim is totally useless. A complete waste of time. If they attack us or our South Korean or Japanese allies they should be absolutely wiped out.

    Just quit poking the unstable bear, Donald. You’ve already sent your message as to what will happen if they attack. You have been crystal clear.

    I suspect Kim’s next move is an atmospheric thermo nuclear test in the Pacific or at least some time soon. Probably some more missile flyover over Japan and maybe something launched close to Guam.

  328. Tina says:

    Only provlem is that the fed gubment is involved withnthe nft. So, nfl and state separation likely wont exist.

    Thanks, wvally. Sessions cos called the mueller investigation an overreach.

    I still think he has nothing. If he did, the breaking news touted bynthe muh russian loon here would have been reported asap, not months later.

  329. Bitterlaw says:

    Since I am not black, I will not pretend to relate to the players’ motives. I don’t like it and wish they would stop but they have a right to do it. It is the owners who have chosen their right to do nothing in response.

  330. Tgca says:

    Bitter

    Part of my earlier point. Boycotts hurt these idiots and reduce their bargaining power in contracts. Viewership down will hurt their game, and drive ticket prices down. How come these guys aren’t protesting the cost of their stadiums and games being out of reach to most in their communities. Dumb butts they are. Trump will hammer them on this and it will distract the MSM from all the other EVIL things his admin is doing, until they realize they’ve been duped again.

    I just love how predictable they are. It’s like touching a drag queens hair. You know they’re going to flip out. 🙂

  331. Bitterlaw says:

    Phil – The other problem is that Kim and Trump know the same thing – once the shooting starts, all hell is going to break loose and millions could die. Kim probably does not care. Does Trump?

  332. Tina says:

    Wow, they kneeled to the us, but not the british.

  333. Phil says:

    There is no big time college football in the Northeast so the NFL is the only game in town up there. I get it. Big time college basketball in the NE for sure. People who graduated from colleges up there outside of Penn State do not come from colleges that have big time college football programs. The rest of the country is different to be sure.

  334. Tina says:

    Phil, it will be the targeted sanctions that work. They are not targeted at mentally ill, jr, but the chinese gatekeepers of mentally ill.

  335. Phil says:

    361

    Bitter, I would like to think so….but he is not behaving like it IMO. Just scary.

  336. Bitterlaw says:

    Tgca – I understand your point. My point is very simple – why should I give up something I enjoy because a bunch of players choose to exercise their First Amendment rights in a way I don’t like? Am I supposed to watch soccer?

    I respect those like Phil, Wes and others who give up watching the NFL. I’m not one of those people.

  337. Tgca says:

    The motives of these players is driven by their ignorance and laziness to seriously educate themselves on the complex role law enforcement plays in their communities. Statistics overwhelmingly show police brutality amongst AA is not what the MSM and AA make it. These incidents are isolated but get big media coverage so they appear routine when they’re not. It’s just something for them to jump on to promote their image. It’s like when the straight actors realized they got better media coverage when they started embracing gay rights.

    It’s no different than Hilary jumping on the “women can’t get a break” fantasy. Reality today does reflect what they’re protesting. Keep doing it though. This will isolate the left more and more with most voters.

  338. Phil says:

    Bitter, makes a good point about the owners. Their do nothing responses bordering on encouragement for this kneeling crap is a huge enabling of the players – big part of the problem.

  339. Tom says:

    Kneeling here in the US is one thing, but going on foreign soil and showing disrespect to our National Anthem crosses a serious line. But then again, crossing lines and showing disrespect is what liberals are all about. And of course, CBS being the great patriots that they are, simply had to showcase it on TV. I have watched my last NFL football game or any CBS programming this season. Boycott the NFL and CBS.

  340. Tina says:

    Hands up, do not shoot was politicized by lebroom, etc.

    They lied about the fergustan matter.

  341. Tina says:

    They can kneel on their own time, speak out against it, lie about hands up, do not shoot.

    They are on company time, so their stances could have consequences.

    Termination.

    Fans not attending.

    Tina, that might be the dumbest comment of the century.

  344. Tgca says:

    Bitter

    It’s to send a message that it’s not appropriate even though a protected right. Because the more silent you are on a topic, the more accepted it becomes. Would you say the same if these players constantly put down Jews or the Holocaust? I for one don’t support these scum big team owners after what Vick did. This guy was rewarded for violently harming and killing animals but was welcomed back. Would we have welcomed back a convicted rapist or child molestor? Sometimes one has to stand for what’s right or we stand for nothing. If your personal enjoyment is more important to you, I respect that. But don’t complain when it extends to other behaviors you personally find abhorrent.

  345. Tgca says:

    Most will not disagree that the AA community has suffered much but this displaced ignorance is an easy scapegoat to the ills that ravage the AA community and will only backfire and hurt their cause further. The optics of a bunch of privileged AA disrespecting the US on foreign soil is mind-boggling stupidity. Will they do this if there is an attack on Americans overseas too? What about if Americans were attacked in a stadium? Would they continue this? I bet you not. The owners would not allow it. This s is simply selective action to get attention. You either have a position on what the anthem and flag represent or you don’t. Can’t cherry pick it. My guess these guys could care less, it’s s all self-promotion.

  346. Tina says:

    The steelers will,stay in the lockeroom during the anthem in chicago, per reports.

  347. Phil says:

    F the Steelers.

  348. Phil says:

    As far as I am concerned, they can stay in the locker room during the entire game.

    I’m done with it all.

  349. Tom says:

    Boycott the NFL.

    Ok. I got things to do today but before I skip along my merry way, just in case I did not articulate my thoughts clearly and folks are not sure where I stand on these very important topics, here goes:

    – I hope every single one of these kneelers experience similar backlash as Colin K.,

    – an independent counsel is appointed to investigate John McCain’s corruption in the S&L scandal and publicly rebukes him for being scum and for having behaved recklessly but not likely a convictable offense because he is such a tool of the MSM and libs,

    – Abortion is the only real issue that matters, and

    – NEVER EVER EVER touch a gay man’s hair.

  354. Wes says:

    Hey, Joy, I’m no Christian, but their religion teaches penitence and considers kneeling as an act of self-abasement to their God. Of course they’ll be kneeling, you idiot! They will kneel as a sign of obeisance to their deity, not as an act of defiance against their country of birth.

    Stupid bitch.
