The Eagles, who were named for the symbol of Roosevelt’s New Deal, are planning a Black Lives Matter Protest tomorrow night.
For me, it has nothing to do with this country or the flag or the anthem in itself,” Jenkins said. “Really, it’s just to continue to push for the conversation about social injustice.
So why are you shitting on our National Anthem?
So what does the coach of the Eagles think about that?
Jenkins said that coach Doug Pederson is aware of the plan, and that he is “OK” with it.
So what does the NFL think about that?
NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell says the league will encourage players to use their voice to promote social change as the demonstrations during the national anthem started by San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick last month continue to spread to other teams. (emphasis me V)…
“As I’ve said before, I truly respect our players wanting to speak out and change the community,” Goodell said. “We don’t live in a perfect society. We want them to use that voice
Oh. but when someone spoke out, on his own time and not during a football game, how did the NFL feel about free speech?
That would be like Hitler playing golf with (Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin) Netanyahu,” Williams said…
“While Hank Williams Jr. is not an ESPN employee, we recognize that he is closely linked to our company through the open to Monday Night Football,” it said. “We are extremely disappointed with his comments, and as a result we have decided to pull the open from tonightâs telecast.”
Hank Williams decided to defend himself. CNN was On The Job!!!!!
When one of the Fox News’ interviewers pointed out that Williams invoked “one of the most hated people in all of the world to describe … the president,”…
No remorse was evident in Williams’ latest song, titled “Keep the Change” — an apparent dig at Obama’s 2008 campaign promise to bring change to Washington…
Totally not related, from a CNN newsreader
“But while a lookalike showed up with a wad of cash, Mr. Bush did not.”
She referenced the following paper-mache mask of President Bush with a Hitler haircut and mustache:
Free Speech, like inclusion, is only for some people.
Eh, I’ll watch some Futurama and I just got the last two books of Stirling’s Change series and the evenings are really cooling off so when the Sun sets, I’ll go outside to read.
Is anybody else reading the Change series?
The first three, Dies the Fire, The Protector’s War and A Meeting at Corvallis, were great.
Then, the next generation took over, where God and gods took a bigger role, and those books were up and down, some were very good some were pretty good. None were bad.
Halfway through The Given Sacrifice, the next generation took over. It was okay. Then, the Golden Princess was very good. That was one of those books you regret ending.
I just got the Desert and the Blade and Prince of Outcasts. If you’re still liking the series, you might not want to read the next part.
I read the Desert and the Blade. Man, what a slog, it took me 3 or 4 days, which is ridiculously long for me to read a fiction book. I’d read it for less than 1/2 hour and put it down, then pick it up later and read it for 1/2 hours then…
I’ll re-read all the other ones in a day or at most two, unless I’m working full time and then it might take me 3 days.
It was 860 or so pages but it could have been about 600 if he hadn’t described every part of every meal and down to maybe 400 if he hadn’t described, in detail, Dunedain flets, the differing ‘garb’ of every community, the fields, railroads and woods, which he had described fully in previous books. At least he made it a whole book without using the word “Bannock”. I totally got sick of that in the previous 6 books. He couldn’t go 4 pages without using it.
Now if we could wean him of “clotted cream” I’d be much happier.
Seriously, it could have been 400+ pages without losing a thing except repeated, 2 or 3 page descriptions of Every. Course. Of. Every. Fucking. Meal and houses and places and people he’s already described, in great detail, in previous books. I found myself skipping whole pages, just skimming to see if he was still describing clotted cream on sweet barley cakes.
I’m about 1/4 through Prince of Outcasts and so far he hasn’t gone crazy over-describing things he’s already over-described, but if this book isn’t darn good I doubt I’ll keep reading. I might jump back in in a few years as I did with Honor Harrington.
I got sick of that series too, but I broke down and got the last two and they were pretty good again.
