    Trump seems to delight in setting one American against another. It's good reality TV, I suppose.
    Let's say that I suffer from a delusion. I will call this delusion "Fact-check Syndrome." I respond by citing facts.

    Most people online don't want to be corrected. They do not care about anything that does not agree with them.

    A war on drugs that is not really a war on drugs, but a war on where the money goes that buys drugs.

    The NFL owners have to side with the thug players (not all players are thugs), because if they don't, they will lose money. It's only a financial decision.

    Nope, he uttered an opinion. Which is his right.

    But let's not pretend this is about dishonoring the men who gave their lives for this flag.

    Most of the time the announcer comes on the PA system and says to honor America....nothing about honoring the sacrifice of soldiers who died in wars defending this nation, which by the way hasn't happened since WW2. So unless we make every sporting event like a Memorial Day or Veterans Day, then this really is about a bunch of people getting upset at a football player and now players who were upset about something else....

    But because it is Trump who gave his opinion, all hell breaks loose.
    If any of my views seem to be strange or new to you, it is to be hoped that you will not close your mind to them, but will emulate the noble Bereans, and not only read and study the chapters would discuss, but will also search the Scriptures to see whether these things be so.

    He is disrespecting those in the military with his form of protest. He is disrespecting those who died for our country. The flag and the anthem are symbols our country uses to honor our country and the people who have fought to give us what only this country can offer. We are or used to be the freeist country in the world. People sacrificed their lives so that it would remain that way. The very least we can do to respect our country and the people who died for it is by respecting it's flag and it's anthem. Kaepernick may be protesting unfair treatment of blacks but he should not disrespect our flag and anthem and as a result our military and fallen soldiers to do so.

    It's exactly about dishonoring the men who died for this country.

    It's so nice to finally have a President who speaks for the forgotten men and women of this great country.
