An open letter to the NFL, its players and sponsors

You graduated high school in 2011. Your teenage years were a struggle. You grew up on the wrong side of thetracks. Your mother was the leader of the family and worked tirelessly to keep a roof over your head and foodon your plate. Academics were a struggle for you and your grades were mediocre at best. The only thing that made you stand out is you weighed 225 lbs and could run 40 yards in 4.2 seconds while carrying a football.

Your best friend was just like you, except he didn’t play football. Instead of going to football practice after school, he went to work at McDonalds for minimum wage. You were recruited by all the big colleges and spent every weekend of your senior year making visits to universities where coaches and boosters tried to convince you their school was best. They laid out the red carpet for you.

Your best friend worked double shifts at Mickey D’s. College was not an option for him. On the day you signed with Big State University, your best friend signed paperwork with his Army recruiter. You went to summer workouts. He went to basic training.

You spent the next four years living in the athletic dorm, eating at the training table. You spent your Saturdays on the football field, cheered on by adoring fans. Tutors attended to your every academic need. You attended class when you felt like it. Sure, you worked hard. You lifted weights, ran sprints, studied plays, and soon became oneof the top football players in the country.

Your best friend was assigned to the 101st Airborne Division. While you were in college, he deployed to Iraq once and Afghanistan twice. He became a Sergeant and led a squad of 19 year old soldiers who grew up just like he did.

He shed his blood in Afghanistan and watched young American's give their lives, limbs, and innocence for the USA.

You went to the NFL combine and scored off the charts. You hired an agent and waited for draft day. You were drafted in the first round and your agent immediately went to work, ensuring that you received the most money possible. You signed for $16 million although you had never played a single down of professional football. Your best friend re-enlisted in the Army for four more years. As a combat tested sergeant, he will be paid $32,000 per year.

You will drive a Ferrari on the streets of South Beach. He will ride in the back of a Blackhawk helicopter with 10 other combat loaded soldiers. You will sleep at the Ritz. He will dig a hole in the ground and try to sleep. You will “make it rain” in the club. He will pray for rain as the temperature reaches 120 degrees.

On Sunday, you will run into a stadium as tens of thousands of fans cheer and yell your name. For your best friend, there is little difference between Sunday and any other day of the week. There are no adoring fans. There are only people trying to kill him and his soldiers. Every now and then, he and his soldiers leave the front lines and “go to the rear” to rest. He might be lucky enough to catch an NFL game on TV. When the National Anthem plays and you take aknee, he will jump to his feet and salute the television. While you protest the unfairness of life in the United States, he will give thanks to God that he has thehonor of defending his great country.

To the players of the NFL: We are the people who buy your tickets, watch you on TV, and wear your jerseys. We anxiously wait for Sundays so we can cheer for you and marvel at your athleticism. Although we love to watch you play, we care little about your opinions until you offend us. You have the absolute right to express yourselves, but we have the absolute right to boycott you. We have tolerated your drug use and DUIs, your domestic violence, and your vulgar displays of wealth. We should be ashamed for putting our admiration of your physical skills before what is morally right. But now you have gone too far. You have insulted our flag, our country, our soldiers, our police officers, and our veterans. You are living the American dream, yet you disparage our great country. I am done with NFL football and encourage all like-minded Americans to boycott the NFL as well.

I found this on facebook and have no idea who wrote it, but I thought you might all want to read it.

I checked a lot of dictionaries on the internet for the definition of "speech" and this is the longest I was able to find:
Websters Dictionary of the English Language 1828
SPEECH, noun
1. The faculty of uttering articulate sounds or words, as in human beings; the faculty of expressing thoughts by words or articulate sounds. speech was given to man by his Creator for the noblest purposes.
2. Language; words as expressing ideas. The acts of God to human ears cannot without process of speech be told.
3. A particular language, as distinct form others. Psalms 19:2.
4. That which is spoken; words uttered in connection and expressing thoughts. You smile at my speech
5. Talk; mention; common saying. The duke did of me demand, what was the speech among the londoners concerning the French journey.
6. Formal discourse in public; oration; harangue. The member has made his first speech in the legislature.
7. Any declaration of thoughts. I, with leave of speech implor'd, repli'd.
SPEECH, verb intransitive To make a speech; to harangue. [Little used.]
Wow, WEIRD! Not a single reference to kneeling or shitting on our flag or anything even remotely to do with all the shit that's been going on lately. I guess that when our founding fathers said we had the right to "free speech", they must have meant the vocal or written forms. The Supreme Court really screwed up when they added a bunch of new meanings. Our founding fathers did NOT include all the crap that we have to put up with today. Time for the SCOTUS to FIX their mistake!!

If you are an honest person, why are you voting for Hillary Clinton? She lies every time her mouth opens, the Clinton Foundation takes "donations", even from foreign Governments, for political favors, and she STOLE over $200,000 worth of art and furniture the last time she and her husband occupied the White House.
If you are a hunter, own a gun or guns, why are you voting for Hillary Clinton? She wants to pass even more gun control laws.
If you are a Christian, why are you voting for Hillary Clinton? She wrote her Senior Thesis on Saul Alinsky. He dedicated his book "Rules for Radicals" to Lucifer, The Devil? She says he was and still is her mentor.
If you are a Veteran, in the military, or closely related to a military member, why are you voting for Hillary? She left those men to die in Benghazi and had the nerve to lie about it over and over again. They called for help but the help was told to stand down.
If you have factory job, why are you voting for Hillary? She supported TPP. Factory workers are being laid off because jobs are going overseas.
Don't forget the deals she made with China. She also welcomes open borders and for illegals to get benefits with YOUR tax money.
If you are poor, why are you voting for Hillary? She is supporting Wall street and all the big banks. Big banks keep the poor, poor by destroying the poor man's credit by allowing medical bills and collections to affect your credit scores so you can pay higher interest rates than the rich. - Taking as much of the little money you earn.
If you are a woman, how can you vote for Hillary? She has buried all of Bill's rape victims under the rug. Remember the little girl that was raped? She defended the rapist and laughed about it later.
If you carry a gun, and believe in the Constitution, how can you vote for Hillary? She wants to eliminate the NRA, take your guns, and abolish the second amendment.
If you breathe, why would you vote for Hillary? She has left a trail of dead people that did not agree with her or knew too much!

Veterans Administration Budget

I am asking my friends to please use my letter posted below as written, or as a guide to write your own letter to help veterans get the medical care they were promised.  Congress will listen if they get enough voters telling them what we want.

Would you all please also pass this along in your blogs and social media friend lists?

Thank you very much for any and all help you can give.

Dear Senator/Representative,  I fully expect and will be watching for you to do ALL in your power as my Senator/Representative to  prioritize veterans over political infighting and pass a full-year funding bill for the VA.  I do NOT consider a  continuing resolution to be a viable solution!

While stop-gap appropriations may work for other federal agencies, a continuing resolution fails to provide the VA the resources it needs to meet increased health care demands and delivery of benefits. We veterans EARNED our benefits!  As we age and there gets to be more and more of us, the costs escalate and a larger budget is an absolute necessity.   A continuing resolution would also severely limit the VA’s ability to eliminate the appeals backlog, which would force veterans to wait longer for a decision on their disability compensation claims.

I am a member of The American Legion and the Veterans of Foreign Wars and I promise you---WE WILL BE WATCHING YOUR VOTES!

Are you having the same dilemma as I am?  You can't stand Trump, but you absolutely hate Clinton?  I'd bet that the number of us that feel the same way is in the 10's of millions!
Forget the third parties and johnny come latelys!. We ALL know that Clinton is the LAST one we want to see win! SCOTUS appointments from her would kill us for the next FORTY years or more! Anyone that loves America has no choice this late in the game-----NEVER CLINTON!!! Voting for Trump, no matter how disgusting that may be to you, is what we must do! Believe me, I have spent many nights fighting the urge to just vote for "Misty", my dog, but I know that I have to fight that urge!  Sorry Misty, but a vote for you is like a half of a vote for killary, and I just can't do that.
Feel free to use this comment or parts of it to spread the message: NEVER CLINTON AT ANY COST!!!!!!!!!
