  1. I started to tear up the first time I saw these, and am again now – and I’m not really a crier. These are awesome and empowered and important.

    As an aside, that Trump-turd is some pretty impressive artwork with a marker.

  2. I didn’t even realize that the Trump-turd was a turd until I noticed the flies. The resemblance to the man and a turd are uncanny.

    I heard nothing back from anybody on these images. Not from #NeverTrump or from Trumpkins. Which was strange, I thought.

  3. Orange, lifeless, and devoid of any logic or morals. Yep, both turds.

    There’s a “tweet angry crap at Grassley” thing going tonight. I’m hoping I’m able to participate. I’m sure it will get just as much traction.

  4. I read a bunch of them. I figure I could do a great photo response to our buddy Chuckles. I go to the movies a lot. I can buy some Night Train (still not sure if they still make it), I just don’t have the woman to take to the movies. Probably wouldn’t be timely by the time I got it all lined up any ways.

    Still want to do a picture of me putting a political sign in my yard with somebody else holding a sign that says: “Stick to photography!” behind me. That is one of the stupidest things I see people put out on social media when a celebrity gives a political opinion. Because your job is catching footballs, you no longer allowed to have opinions.

    Almost as annoying as people who after this week’s (day’s) mass shooting, call out other people for “politicizing a tragedy”. Ummmm… when policy fails, that is when you discuss policy.

    If I ever get gunned down in a mass shooting, don’t even wait for my body to get cold to discuss what changes in policy could’ve prevented my death.

  5. I loved that Colin K got the Sports Illustrated aware yesterday for his opinions. It’s freaking awesome, and he deserves it. He had a place where he could be heard, and he risked his career for a more important purpose. Just because he can also play football doesn’t mean that he doesn’t deserve heard.

    I HATE that crap with “it’s not respectful.” Um, forgetting entirely about the Las Vegas shooting after four days to avoid eye contact about it, and moving on was what wasn’t respectful. I’ll make sure to use this exact blog post if you ever get gunned down in a mass shooting. Please do the same for me.

  6. It is a deal!

    The kneeling during the National Anthem is disrespectful to veterans narrative also drives me up the frigging wall.

    1. The flag doesn’t represent just the military.
    2. The song doesn’t represent just the military.
    3. Each branch of the military has their own song and own flag.
    4. The song IS racist. 3rd verse literally glorifies killing of slaves.
    5. The guy who penned the phrase “Land of the Free”, owned slaves and hated black people.
    6. He got the idea for kneeling from an army veteran.

    I think what people are saying when they say, “Don’t politicize this tragedy” is don’t point out the horrible policies I support lead to this mass shooting. I don’t want to be called on my BS. Hopefully you’ll forget that this happened. Then we will never have to have a real discussion. I will continue to publish memes calling you a “libtard”. Cause I’m cool like that.

  7. I also looked up the meaning of the colors of the flag: http://www.usflag.org/colors.html

    “…Blue, the color of the Chief (the broad band above the stripes) signifies vigilance, perseverance & justice.”

    That right there seems to me to be exactly what the kneeling movement is all about. Vigilance, perseverance, and justice. All three checkboxes.

    You’re correct – the military use the anthem and flag for motivation, but both predate the military in its current form. This is as American as it gets.
