Protest

I really don’t want to get too political here, but I am getting pretty tired of people deciding that what NFL players are doing is disrespectful of the flag and veterans. This was never about disrespecting the flag. These people are doing what they are doing in order to draw attention to something that is . . . → Read More: Protest

What is going on here?

What is going on here? People are re-writing history to be what they wish it were, rather than what it really was.
