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.
Why does Mr. Kaepernick, a 100+ $million second-string player badly treated by his country because of his skin color, feel he is entitled to denigrate (pun?) the national anthem on his employer's time? He could play the anthem at his own home while sitting, and invite the TV networks to cover his sitting "live" on their show channels.
Mr. Kaepernick should also vocally support affirmative action for NFL team employment. There is a low proportion of old caucasian males employed by NFL compared to the proportion of the population, so Mr. Kaepernick should support more diversity being enforced on NFL (and NBA) hiring.
