We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
Kaepernick intended that his anti-American demonstration would be a poke in the eye to all Americans especially white Americans. He is a racist egged on by his anti-American racist girlfriend. Most of those who followed his lead and took a knee fall into the same category to some degree. A few are just useful idiots but the rest are anti-American racists whose joy in life is shitting on "your" parade.
