This anthem protestor filed a lawsuit and you won’t believe the shocking result


Anti-American anthem protests spread around the country like a virus.

Former NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernick opened Pandora’s box when he knelt for “The Star-Spangled Banner.”

But when one anthem protester filed a lawsuit, no one saw this result coming.

Washed-up quarterback turned political activist Colin Kaepernick disturbingly became a national hero when he labeled America “evil and racist” and knelt for the anthem and the flag.

On the Left, the more you hate America, the more you’re showered with praise.

His actions inspired many, many copycats in all walks of life, including college cheerleaders.

One cheerleader knelt for the national anthem and filed a lawsuit against her school shortly after.

The lawsuit is now over and the result is mind-blowing.

The College Fix reports:

America has gone so far afield that kneeling for the national anthem can now earn you six figures.

This cheerleader’s actions reflect bigger problems in our society

First, there’s a sickening sentiment of ingratitude spreading throughout the land.

These protestors live in the freest and most prosperous nation in human history and yet they protest it.

These types of protests can get people killed in other parts of the world.

In fact, pro-Democracy protestors in Hong Kong are risking life and limb fighting against an authoritarian regime.

By contrast, to the cheerleader in this suit, former Miami Dolphins cheerleader Kristan Ann Ware was ostracized and punished for being open about her religious views on Christianity and chastity.

American culture is entirely upside down.

Do you think the college cheerleader deserved a six-figure settlement?

  2. This is the kind of “justice” that makes it possible for the Democrats to draft articles of impeachment because they just don’t like the outcome of the 2016 election.

  3. Eleanor Dombroski: You are absolutely correct. But because she was covered under Freedom of Speech, she was legally allowed to do this disrespectful act. Morally, these babies that live in the greatest country in the world, should never even THINK about doing something like this!!! And being rewarded in the 6 figure range? It’s just disgusting!!! I don’t wish anything evil against anyone. But someone like her and others that take delight being a disrespectful to our country, WILL face the consequences someday. This I truly believe….

  4. Its a shame that we’re such a loving nation. Otherwise we could put all these anti-americans against a wall and machine gun them down. So, instead, lets pray for them. God bless America

  5. jack, the whole dem party is the enemy of this nation. Their goal is to completely take over our government and every aspect of our lives. NO FREEDOM. But guess you are fine with that. You are very foolish

  6. don, prayer is the only thing that will save this country from destruction. We need to pray every day for God to help us against the evil that the dem party has become

  7. Jack: Since you brought up that 65,000,000 figure that voted for the Democrats, tell me, how many of them were really still alive??Even cheating you still didn’t win did ya? That’s why your party is giving driver licenses to the illegal immigrants now, so they can vote for your demonic party. Just another way of cheating. Great way to win an election.

  8. BJ you brain dead Republithug read what he wants. He would like to line anyone who he considers un-American up against the wall and to quote “machine gun them down. That makes him both violent and I would say kind of not Christ like.

    However I understand he is a brain dead member of the Cult of #45 Personality.

  9. Send them off to work in a third world country for a year. They’ll change their minds. It’s also time to get rid of the “Litigation Lottery.”

  10. If you can not RESPECT the FLAG and the COUNTRY you need to get the hell out of our country. The cheerleader should be thrown out of the country and money returned to the school. IN MY OPINION.

    If you disrespect the flag in front of me, you will have a big problem.


  11. I would like these idiotic protectors to see what it was like back in 1980 when I spent some time in South Korea with the USAF and they were under martial law and if you were on the streets after curfew you risked being shot, or back in the days when the Phillippines were ruled by Ferdinand Marcos and there were times that you could see fear in people’s faces. There are other examples but these protectors just whine and think they are doing something special and instead of trying to change the perceived injustices they supposedly found they just whine and think they are victims of something

  12. Our war veteran are homeless and sleeping in the streets, countless hundreds of thousands of undocumented alien illegally pour across our borders and are rewarded with free housing medical, education, and assistance. The democratic communist party convinced their brain washed propaganda fed zombies their all victims and like good Communist followers they need reparations. Free Medicare for everyone plus extra benefits if your here illegally. This is the america democrats gave us a road to self destruction fir the hammer and the sickle members and leaders of the House of Representatives. It is like our justice system refusing to indict the conspirators in the first proven coup, yet threatening us if we say we love America. God Save the Republic from the democrats.

  13. PEOPLE! PEOPLE! PEOPLE! Lets not get into a shouting, name calling match. When someone posts a really dumb statement, do not “sink to the level” of the contributor. Just keep in mind; the 2020 election will. That’s where it all counts. MAGA …and again, and again!

  14. NO how can any judge in their right mind give such a reward for show just how ignorant they are the judge should take her a_ _ to another country where she could learn a lesson to just how good no great she had it made here in America to many lawsuits and too much money being handed out for something so stupid!

  15. it’s stomach turning watching this nut job s using the lawsuits for get rich schemes the judge should have given her a brief history of what the flag means to every American who fought and lives and dies here. if a reward was to be given to the snively little brat it Should have been $1.00 and then maybe just maybe these ungrateful little snots would stop with this all this nonsense

  16. “These types of protests can get people killed in other parts of the world.” Perhaps not a bad idea. OTOH, ifmembers of an extracurricular group are required to behave and comport themselves in a certain way and don’t, they should be kicked out of the activity. Kaepernick violated his conract and the NFLsaid “OK. that’s why many of us no longer watch footall on Sundaybut only on Saturday.

  17. Good one Rob! I was thinking that a true Christian can never and will never vote for a democrat as democrats support the murder of babies and forcing the homosexual agenda on Americans. (Oh, but democrats want all the Bibles removed/destroyed. . . . Wonder why?) “Christian democrats” be very careful lest you hear, “Depart from me for I never knew you.”
    In HIM,

  18. Ship that cheerleader to VENEZUELA and let her protest the government there. If she lives through it, when someone asks her what she is doing NOW, she could say “about 5 to 10 years, 3 hots and a cot . . .” if she lives out her prison term. Make sure you send that MARXIST there with a ONE way plane ticket – COACH (don’t want to waste tax dollars).

  19. They way I see it, this country has gone to crap ever sense we have allowed and given professional athletics more money than is seriously necessary to play a sport they claim they love to play. In reality it’s all about he “MEME” generation! Who wants to work when you can try and fine a loop hole in ever law ever written and then sue for hundreds, thousands, or millions of dollars, and never have to work a day in your life. This new generation who is being brainwashed by foreign anti-American professor in college and high schools is our fault for letting the teach the kids trash about America and try to show how the Americans are depriving them of life, liberty, and happiness. Our own government can’t even get their crap together to agree on how this country should be ran instead they stick their noise in foreign affairs. And then divide our country over B/S on POTUS. If yo are not proud of you country and the benefits which you receive go to a foreign country and see how the live and are treated over there. American by birth or not you can still lose you Citizenship as an American and be a person without a country and this is fact. If you just want to wake up and hate every second, minute, hour, and day of your life this country, please leave. I am a veteran who volunteered during the Viet-nam Era and OIF, OEF, OND. I was proud to have served and place my life on daily for this country. Kneel? what the heck is kneeling for a song that was written back in the 1700’s as this country was fighting for freedom and a better life. I just don’t really know what to say other than it is a disgrace and an insult to every citizen of this country since the begging of time who had sweat and bled for a better life and freedom. Everything being given to this new generation and they don’t appreciate one thing they benefit from this country. It’s not their “GOD” given right to receive those benefits! It’s the blood shed by the true Americans and those that believed in this country who gave them those rights. Foreign influence from foreign athletics and teachers/professor have really turned our country 180 degrees. And the only individual to blame is “WE the people…” We are the ones whom we voted to be our law makers and decision makers of our way of life. Those who worry more about how foreign countries are being ran and how the people are being treated and not taking care of issues here on our own home soil. The same people who are destroying this country instead of trying or even attempting to “MAKE IT GREAT and RESPECT AGAIN.”

  20. I have mailed via certified mail, a noits, Notice of Intention to Sue. Mailed it to the Rayburn House Office
    Building in Washington, DC. I am suing all of the atheist dems for $ 40,000,000 here in a JUST Montana
    District court.
    All olf these atheists and America haters will have to respond as per the letter of the law.

    $40,000,000 means absolutely nothing to all the dems and America haters.
    But, like *magic*……..holy father GOD always uses the number forty ( 40 ) anywhere in the Bible whenever He wants to get something really big done.

    This is not for myself. I already have a wonderful life, absolutely no debts, and a lot of money.
    this is for every man, woman and child living in the USA who does not ever need anything ever, ever, ever, ever, ever, ever again from the atrocious and despicably corrupt democrat party.

  21. As much as her disrespectful act makes me want to vomit, it is allowed under our Constitution. But, paying her is even more inappropriate. I’m hoping she joins the Kaepernick unemployable group, until the error of her ways becomes apparent to her.

  22. All about the money! Can’t serve God and money! Pay her and move on to the next stupid scam. Can’t fix stupid. Scam the people, scam the nation, but God will not be scammed or mocked! Merry Christmas.

  23. And you’re brain dead period but them again so are all lefties. He pointedly said to pray for them whereas I think we should pull citizenships and help them pack and leave. AND don’t bother trying to BS me. I grew up Dem and watched the morphing of the party into communists but that would be over your head.

  24. Satan is real and he has many minions! Because America is the land of the free, many tricksters have intent to destroy what our forefathers created! Why? Because it is their job to destroy goodness, in any shape or form. This is a worldwide problem and not an easy fix, especially when many perverted belief systems exist which also feeds their satanic desires.

    Politics is the devils game. It is where men and women are corrupted and their votes bought. Their desires are fed by ones investing in them, for future votes that will not be honest at all! You are put in compromising positions in order to blackmail and or bribe you for the votes. This is the devils game. In today’s world we have ones who invite demons in. They sell their soul thinking they will be a star or even a God after life.

    Abusing the flag or protesting its presence is just another public disruption being perpetrated by these ones. They have taken the rainbow colors, created by God, and incorporated them into a flag. Typical thievery by ones who are not exactly pro family, as God is. They will meet the karma which is attached to their actions. This one who won, may find a lesson or two attached!

  25. If you disagree with this settlement, GET OFF YOUR BUTT AND VOTE! That means EVERY election you qualify for! If you agree with it, STAY HOME on election day!

  26. While I was once an avid fan, I no longer bother with sports, period, BUT they’re not the only ones who are sinking the country. Follywood children can be added as well as our elitist politicians who rape pillage and plunder the citizenry for their own gain…..and while the majority are in the Dems, there are those like Romney, the phony, who’ve done it their whole lives…..and don’t forget the ambulance chasing lawyers.


  28. Problem is Rob, the Dems will figure a way to pay that out of taxpayer monies like maybe stealing more from the social security fund. That’s what politicians do best…..steal from taxpayers yet cannot live with in their means ever.

  29. To kneel is an act of reverence. it has been so for hundreds of years. Every time they kneel they show their ignorance. It’s amusing!

  30. My personal view is the judge and law is wrong. If I take a job as a worker and representative of the company/team. Then I am obligated to do that job and represent that company/team while I am on THEIR time. The boss/coach/institution is my boss….. If I choose to disrespect their views and/or work orders and not work/sit/practice in a specified area to do my assignment at any time that I am being paid/compensated or privileged to represent that company on company time..Then that coach/team/company/boss has EVERY Right to Terminate me. They have the right to say… sit in the locker room for the entire game and in fact for the rest of the season and practice your cheerleading moves.
    They can say this is not working out, you choose not to perform or represent our team/company as we expect you to and therefore it is in your and our best interest that you look for another employer.
    Simple…done.. bye bye.

  31. The point was that IN A LOT OF OTHER COUNTRIES such disrespect would result in harsh consequences. It’s sad that some people cannot differentiate
    between ad observation and a threat. And isn’t ironic how the religion hating Left always drags Christian shaming into their inane Leftist arguments.

  32. The solution is obvious. Eliminate high school and college sports and cheerleaders and you have no problem. These schools may actually have to educate our young people!! What a novel idea!!

  33. Thank you Sargent. For your service and fighting for and respecting our GREAT country. I respect your point of view to a certain extent. However, when you were EMPLOYED by the government, would you have been allowed to disrespect superiors orders (Obviously within reason) while on company time? Example: if you were ordered to stay in the barracks today because we are doing jumping jacks today and we know that you disrespected the commander and did not like doing jumping jacks yesterday and you chose not to do them, so stay in the barracks until we call you for sit ups.
    Or would that have been insubordination because you did not do the jumping jacks or should you be rewarded because your feelings were hurt by being ordered to stay in the barracks do you do not have to do the jumping jacks?
    Bottom line is just my point of view..the cheerleader is wrong and so is the judge. The company should get new lawyers and appeal the case.
    Thank you again Sargent for your service????????

  34. She should be home schooled by Kaepernick so neither of them need be around the pubic and the girls enablers who caved to her ridiculous law suit should lose their jobs and be stoned in the town square.

  35. I am a Vietnam Veteran and I am insulted by the actions of the liberal judges. Kophucknick is a traitor and should be thrown out of the country and the judges reward the traitor protesters—-get rid of these judges. There will be a day of reckoning and all will pay for their hate of America and what our country stands for.

  36. Get rid of the cheerleading squad for a couple of years. In fact get rid of football. Thes people should have boo’d off the field.

  37. There are parasites and cockroaches in society that it is embarrassing, to say the least, to belittle a cockroach.
    “They” have no ethics or “Godly” standards to live by, constantly setting up others for financial gain ONLY.


    Just saying …

  38. If the flag were not being used to JUSTIFY American brutality, around the world, then I, too, would condemn the knee benders.

    The fact is that the flag has been used, by those who either want to abolish certain forms of government, or even certain religions. (None of which the Founding Fathers would have been in favor of).

    So MUCH TORTURE, everyday, and all in the name of “national security”?????

    The Pledge of Allegiance is supposed to be the verbal contract, between the nation, and each citizen.

    A contract which is being ABUSED, daily.

    What more is there to say?

  39. She bit the hand that feeds her, and got rewarded. Some day that hand will bite her back. I won’t feel sorry for her one bit.

  40. It’s a good thing Kaempernick can play football, he would never make it as a farmer. What farmer in his right mind would burn his barn because he didn’t like the smell.

  41. These people believe lies told to them by people like their professors. They don’t deserve our national anthem. Their national anthem should be Rod Stewart’s song Reason To Believe.

  42. Free speech is a right only if you are a liberal democrat. Otherwise no way may you express your opinions.

  43. exactly.

    The courts have repeatedly ruled against Christians discriminated against for even just saying that they are Christian while at work or in public that it somehow violated the rights of OTHERS for them to express their beliefs outside of their home or Church even though they are also protected by the first amendment as well as being ACTUAL speech not a protest that interfered with work etc..

    Yet they give this person a six figure reward because the school (where courts have upheld there is no free speech allowed when they ruled “free speech zones” or PERMITS that require prior approval of the speech legal at collages) decided not to put them on the field where they had abused their position as a cheerleader to hijack the game as their political protest forcing an audience that was not there to listen to someones political beliefs to attend their protest by holding it at the event they were there to attend.

    In other words like the teachers ruled against in the case that created the separation of church and state ruling the cheerleader wanted a captive audience that was not there to see her anti freedom based propaganda based protest she did without checking a single actual fact about the false accusations used as an excuse to begin the nonsense.

    This ruling of course ends sports events at schools since a judge has now ruled they are just political rallies for those who want to PROTEST the fact that America has the BILL OF RIGHTS, ABOLISHED SLAVERY over 150+ years ago, and the EQUAL RIGHTS amendment without being summarily executed or jailed as other nations have done and will still do to people who demand they be given these same rights this cheerleader and other anti freedom protestors seem to think equals discrimination or racism because all are treated EQUAL instead of one group being granted higher PRIVILEGES or extra rights others do not have.

  44. That cheerleader didn’t deserve a penny. It’s sad anti-patriotism has become popular and people label it as a form of patriotism.

  45. jack, YOU are truly brain dead. You have no concept at all of our founding fathers or what they left us. You have no clue about the truth. You just blindly believe the sick lies of the dem party without question. And what I said is correct. don DID NOT say he wanted to execute but to pray for them. The dem party hates everything this country stands for and their goal is to totally control our government and every aspect of our life. That is TREASON!!!! But you are just fine with it. You are a fool

  46. Isn’t it amazing that people born in the freest country in the history of the world are handed privilege but can hate that country? No where else do they have the opportunity to be anything they are capable of being. They are guaranteed life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness, yet they have distain for the symbols of that guarantee. I find Colin Kaepernick and all the others he has inspired to take a knee during the playing of our national anthem to be disgusting. That cheer leader doesn’t deserve the money. That woman who led the United States Women’s soccer team to fame doesn’t deserve to be on a pedestal. Kaepernick, who has already bilked society out of millions of dollars doesn’t deserve to be hired by anybody. Incidentally, I used to be a die hard 49ers fan, but I haven’t seen a single down since Mr. K. pulled his stunt. The team failed when they didn’t toss him out on his backside. I heard they’re having a good season. Too bad.

  47. She didn’t deserve a $00.01 figure for settlement. The college was within their rights to keep her off the field during our national anthem. Frankly, every ungrateful B**ch and B**tard need to be shipped overseas to watch the people in Hong Kong, partake in the average life in Russia, China, North Korea and other places. With all that under their belts, maybe they’d be more grateful for this country and what it stands for.

    Yeah, I know long shot there, but I did say “maybe.”

  48. These treasonous hypocrite libs(lying sack of Schiff) don’t know the meaning of the truth! They are at it again and just as mentally deranged as the rest of the Globalists NAZI Muslim Commie Liberal Demoncrats! Deep State, Pelosi, Waters, Schumer, Hollywood, Academia, Fake News, Swamp News and you know the rest!! ‪Expose, Boycott, Sue, prosecute and bring to justice all these lying Fake News deep state treasonous Godless NAZI commie liberal demoncrats and RINOs post-haste,Patriots! Drain the rat infested swamp President Trump!‬

  49. I agree, what do sports have to do with college education?? It’s just another way for the overpaid universities to make more money! Pro athletes, actors, all hollywood employees, musicians etc. make Way too much money! The universities too!

  50. It appalls me that this cheerleader is paid a ridiculous sum of money for being called out for protesting. Yes, she has the freedom to protest but I think certain rules of the college should have priority. She chose to attend this institution of higher learning. Maybe the college/ university should print a booklet about what they feel appropriate and permitted to off set this kind of restitution for a person’s personal actions.

  51. You mean, that voted for the criminal spawn from hell, Queen Pantsuit? Well, at least 40-50% of that third-party murderess’s voters were made up of non-citizens, corpses, with duplicate ballots by both. How many voting facilities counted more democrat ballots than their total of registered democrats? Anyone recall?

    And all globalist politicians and their voter’s false Gods, the MSM, would like you to believe they (leftist voters) are numbered in the millions, but that’s simply not true. In fact, every MSM poll, every report of rally attendees are grossly exaggerated just in case they can cheat well enough to “beat Trump”, which will not happen if every single independent and conservative NEVER becomes complacent with their vote!! I firmly believe in voter IDs, and would love to see some oversight at voting places in the form of national guard, or the reserves, or current unemployed military to secure the votes and greatly diminish the opportunity to cheat.

    I also believe tying ballots to social security numbers may be a great idea as well. I realize they’re not to be used as identifiers but since no one in the health industry cares about that…hell your damn cable company wants your ss# or you don’t get service, why the hell NOT use them to vote?!?!

  52. According to Sharia law (the religion of peace??):
    • A man can marry an infant girl and consummate the marriage when she is 9 years old.
    • Girls’ clitoris should be cut (Muhammad’s words, Book 41, Kitab Al-Adab, Hadith 5251)

    • Meat to eat must come from animals that have been sacrificed to Allah – i.e., be “Halal.”
    • Muslims are to subjugate the world under Islam (see Quran 9:29 and Palestine Issue).
    • Muslims should engage in Taqiyya and lie to non-Muslims to advance Islam.

  53. Don’t know who the idiot judge and jury was on this case but they totally was out of their peabrain heads when they awarded this girl any thing except a sharp reprimand for her claims, she should have been told if you don’t like living in this country find another one you like better and emigrate see how you like their rules

  54. PEG
    And all of that, Barney, is why we should NOT allow Muslims to serve in our U.S. Congress. Advancing Islam and getting rid of Christianity is their sole purpose (and incidentally, it has been noted that Muhammad got the idea for his religion after having seen the crowds gathered to hear Jesus.)

  55. Colleges, pro teams need to require these people to sign an oath to stand for the national anthem. If they refuse they lose their scholarships, salaries, etc.
    They should be sued for damages caused by their actions! Loss of revenue stops others from getting those scholarships!

  56. I’m thinking Ivanka 2024! She has been great getting business executives to bring back the jobs! But she has been creating training for those jobs sponsored by the companies themselves.

  57. Kennesaw State University should be cut off from all federal funds for disrespecting the National Anthem. The University should have disputed the lawsuit fully and dismissed Tommia Dean from the school.

  58. Don’t like the anthem….go somewhere else….. little bully…unamerican, unpatriotic and anyone giving her a ‘reward’ is right up there with her………

  59. Rob, I agree completely…. To all Trumo supporters….. do not lower yourself to the bullying dem level….. ❤️????????

  60. AMEN, we need to unite and take our country back from the people like this miscreant cheerleader, the judge who awarded her the money and the people who vote for them. Now, let me say, not all democrats are bad. There are democrats who love our country, respect our president, hate abortion, Love the Bible, our military and then 2nd amendment and despise antifa, LBQT and Hollywood.

  61. Why should we be ashamed that we’re such a loving nation? If you don’t like it, then you’re the one who hates the United States, no better than the citizens who choose to snub the solidarity that the playing of the national anthem at sporting events is intended to signify.

  62. How in the hell does “otherwise we could” translate to “regardless I am personally going to”? Quit trying to twist other people’s words, please. This is why you draw so much ire around here. But who knows? Maybe that is what you want.

  63. You’re going to have to acquire some strategic doctrine, a training apparatus, a spying apparatus, a cryptography apparatus, a diplomatic apparatus and a strict code of honor to pull that off. Most people do not know the first thing about protecting their plans from being derailed by the joint efforts of the United States law enforcement, United Kingdom law enforcement, Canadian law enforcement and Australian law enforcement, plus some. Just in case you’ve forgotten, these institutions have sworn to protect each others’ governments from insurgency and what they consider to be “seditious” activism among many other things, albeit they do not always do an adequate job. And if you’re thinking that Vladimir Putin will throw the full force of the Russian military, its supercomputers and the Агентство интернет-исследований troll farm behind you without expecting anything in return, then you’d be in for a surprise.

  64. When things reach a tipping point, your fellow Americans are going to be a lot of things much worse than disrespecting the flag in front of you, and unless you manage not to be captured, there won’t be a damned thing you can do about it. By the way, for your information, people on both sides of the isle already have a big problem.

  65. There is a possibility that they will live to see that very condition of “martial law” in one part of the United States or another, maybe the whole. While some may want this to prove a point, nobody in it would enjoy it, but it has happened before and can happen again.

  66. In two ways, the Constitution of the United States provides for vacating the office of the President of the United States, without waiting for the occupant to lose re-election and the subsequent expiration of the term of office. This can only ever be a “coup”, as in coup d’etat, if the constitution or a law pursuant thereto is being violated in the process, such as ignoring the requirement of probable cause, reasonable suspicion, attorney-client privilege, due process, fair trial (non-Kafkaesque) and sufficient consensus of guilt. As made clear by the constitution, the reason for removal cannot be arbitrary. Of course, people are generally at liberty to call it whatever they like. Some may even be absurd enough to refer to the very act of any contender running against any incumbent as “attempted coup”, regardless of there being evidence of election tampering. C’mon! Get real.

  67. Yes, “Culture Watch News” is much better in that regard than “Renewed Right”, “Patriot Pulse” and “Pants on Fire”, among many others operating off the WordPress platform. The thanks is well-deserved.

  68. We’ve not really presented with all the details, have we, though? Was it an in-court settlement or an out-of-court settlement? If it was the former, then did a jury arrive at the decision or was it only the judge? If it was the latter, then most likely the university has something to hide. There are many other things to consider. The devil is in the details.

  69. We don’t know for a fact that the the plaintiff filed suit in order to “get rich”. Even if so, the whole point of it can be to punish the defendant, so as to deter future offenses, provided that any offense was established in the first damned place.

  70. Hard to say. Maybe a true Christian cannot vote for anybody. Governments, including constitutional ones and otherwise democratic ones, have a lot of blood on their hands. A moral person has to be prepared to tender his or her resignation whenever being placed in the position of enforcing an immoral law or ignoring activities that are both immoral and illegal. A moral person has to be prepared to suspend his or her campaign whenever being faced with accepting campaign donations that effectively constitute blood money. A moral person might only be able to vote for people who meet the aforementioned preparations. All of these complications are why some people choose to go off on their owns, shut society out and raise their families in isolation from an unstable network of cultures. But a vast majority of people want to have it both ways somehow.

  71. Maybe, but it is much easier to work a job than be a plaintiff in a suit at law. Meanwhile, as always, some people’s job is to represent others in the court of law, and that is how they make their living. In most suit at law, a victorious plaintiff do not personally recover all of whatever the defendant took from him or her. The whole system is a racket for attorneys at law, and that includes judges, prosecutors, solicitors, defenders and litigators.

  72. Taxpayers always pay for anything that the government, the military, the banks, the police, the courts or other civil services do wrong in course of exercising their respective duties to the citizenry. That’s just the way the system is designed. It roughly works the same way all around the world. Certainly the governments could offer up soils of war as compensation to the public; but that requires a war to occur in the first place, and it also create a perverse incentive to go to war even when not necessary to do so, except as however enough people’s sons are placed at risk of being slayed or maimed. Long story short, freedom is not free.

  73. The “flag” has also been used in monetary endorsement of Planned Parenthood Federation of America, but you don’t see the pro-life crowd signaling their dissent and disgust during the playing of the national anthem at sporting events. There are always going to be problems with government, but we should avoid redressing our grievances in ways that condemn the very symbols of solidarity among the States, the cities and the communities, lest those events turn into crap devoid of morale and furthermore become riot-prone. You know of the following proverb, right? “My country, right or wrong. When right, keep it right. When wrong, right the wrong.”

  74. Ken Marx, you wrote, “No where else do they have the opportunity to be anything they are capable of being.” That’s not true. Also, there is no guarantee of life, liberty, property or the pursuit of happiness, but merely a high probability of murderers, kidnappers, thieves and other violators being brought to justice, like in any modern civilized nation.

    As a related trivia, let us be reminded of the following. While the phrase “life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness” does appear in the Declaration of Independence of the United States, it does not appear in the Constitution of the United States. Rather, there is the fifth amendment, which states, “No person shall be held to answer for a capital, or otherwise infamous crime, unless on a presentment or indictment of a Grand Jury, except in cases arising in the land or naval forces, or in the Militia, when in actual service in time of war or public danger; nor shall any person be subject for the same offence to be twice put in jeopardy of life or limb; nor shall be compelled in any criminal case to be a witness against himself, nor be deprived of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor shall private property be taken for public use, without just compensation.” On that note, the United States form one of the few sovereign nations in the world that even has such a provision in the supreme law of the land, so undoubtedly United States citizens and all inhabitants of the United States ought to be grateful about it. Furthermore, almost like a bonus, many State constitutions carry the same provision for the preservation of life, liberty and property, as had by innocent people.

  75. Well, obviously contract law would be the proper way for the university to mitigate against future sleights by athletes against the ritual of “The Star-Spangled Banner” at the university’s sporting events.

  76. Hey Culper, yes it needs to be on her time not my dime. I am there to see a sports game NOT a political protest. But I know to you this doesn’t make any sense not I digress……Liberalism is truly a disease!

  77. It ought to be on her own time, yes. That is fine stance. “Yoda” here stated it has to be, implying that it must be, that it is required to be. I asked for evidence. Bee Johnson stated, “I know to you this doesn’t make sense”, but this person is incorrect about that and obviously the type to claim to know things not actually known, which is a very disingenuous thing to do.

  78. I’m sick and tired of these spoiled children getting their way. They don’t get their way and society tells them sue we are left a leaning country. Then society tells them”nice job”keep up good work. We as a country need to get back too our Christian ways and put God back on top,quit killing babies,and get right with God.

  79. Some time ago, there was a supreme court decision on actions taken when representing a particular business or Government agency. If you are wearing someones banner or uniform, you must conform to their rules on speaking or acting in public. The NFL knew this but refused to take the lead and shut these people down, now, it spread and can’t be stopped. Any agency or sponsor can set standards for your action when representing them in public.

  80. A contract that must be signed forbidding this type of nonsense should be signed by all athletes preempting any of this BS.
