Stand for the national anthem

June 1, 2018

To the editor: Outrageous, sickening, and absolutely disgusting — not standing for the national anthem is beyond the behavior expected from any sane American! Let’s be clear: Football players are......

Hilarious watching Lee County's biggest "liberal" SERIAL-hypocrite drool on about anti-black "racism"..lololol.. Yet supporting Barack O'Sharpton the greatest racial dividing total sham "President" in US history who clearly is an Anti-White/Anti-Jew racist..raised and mentored by Anti-White racists (from Birth) Married a White hating racist, then sat in the pews of a White Hating Super racist "church" listening to Anti-White Hate speech for OVER 20 YEARS..taking pictures with his hero, White Hating Racist, Louie Fake-a-Con. There is no greater disgrace to ever pollute these pages with his SERIAL hypocrisy and low IQ ignorance than Comrade Corpolov..or in reality, Mike The ALWAYS Lying Lib..Kicked off the radio(92.5) Booted off the News Press, unfortunately now camped here to spread his "liberal" sickness. The undisputed local King of truly pathetic, low class, "liberal" serial hypocrites.

We have problems with crimes, law enforcement and justice. Surely Americans on the receiving end have a right to protest and demand attention to the issues. There are many acts by Americans way more abhorrent than taking a knee during the national anthem. Comes to mind, “LIAR” called out during a President’s state of the union, burning of draft cards and casting service medals away on the capital steps by veterans. Some protests offend different demographics but they are protected constitutional rights.

“Police in Ferguson —arrest black people at a rate nearly three times higher than people of other races.

At least 1,581 other police departments across the USA arrest black people at rates even more skewed than in Ferguson, a USA TODAY analysis of arrest records shows. Those disparities are easier to measure than they are to explain. They could be a reflection of biased policing; they could just as easily be a byproduct of the vast economic and educational gaps that persist across much of the USA — factors closely tied to crime rates. In other words, experts said, the fact that such disparities exist does little to explain their causes. Whatever the reasons, the results are the same: Blacks are far more likely to be arrested than any other racial group in the USA. In some places, dramatically so.”

“An analysis found black men’s sentences are 19.1 percent longer than white men’s, even after controlling for criminal history and other factors.” “FactCheck has already looked at the statistics on killings by law enforcement officials. Though imperfect, the official figures suggest blacks are disproportionately likely to die at the hands of police.” It would be naïve to suggest there is no racism in the US criminal justice system, but victim reports don’t support the idea that this is because of mass discrimination.” Higher poverty rates among various urban black communities might explain the difference in crime rates, although the evidence is mixed. Links between crime and race are likely to remain the subject of bitter argument.” African Americans have the same rights to protest as any other American, something it appears many would deny them.

The administration is trying to use the Federal Power Act Section 202(c) to justify taxpayer support for coal power plant owners to keep them profitable by using our tax dollars or increased rates. They are going bankrupt because of cheaper clean energy competition. That is the only reason.

The FPA Section 202 (C) is for disaster relief and catastrophic failures to get the electricity back on. It is not a vehicle for old throw back to Soviet style government supported/run centralized power utilities. Their attempts to do this are anti-capitalistic, anti-competitive plus the harm done to progress being made to improve grid resilience from disasters, terrorism and mechanical failures. There have been strides made such that DISTRIBUTED clean energy is being known as a Disruptive Force causing the Right Sizing of utilities.

Politics threatens the Distributed Clean Energy Revolution.

I don’t claim to know the outcome of the Special Prosecutor’s investigation. I admit I would love to see that rotten Sxx-O-Bxxxx get the justice he deserves, like others who have felt justice for far less.

I am eaten up with curiosity to know if there is a shred of humanity in his Right Wing Supporters. The latest Trump travesty, with the help of his appointed secretaries, is about to be perpetrated on our energy security/independence. Already oil, coal and nuclear get a lion’s share of subsidies (about to be given more), yet clean distributed produced energy is overwhelming them with efficiency (cost and grid savings), clean environment, safer from terrorism and getting the feet of big corporations off our necks.

Our military prefers solar as a better option for deployment than hiring private scoundrels like Black Water to deliver tankers of petrol through the IED and terrorist gauntlet. A negative vote to me means you care or don’t.

You would think Manafort would know any type of communications by him to anyone would be monitored by the FBI. (arrogance!!!)

The Mueller filing tonight states two witnesses were asked by Manafort to give false testimony. This is early info on Muellers filing. May be much more tampering? The developments today and tonight will create huge pressure in the Cohn and Manafort investigations.

Mueller (al life long republican) filed a motion to put Manafort in custody. Mueller in his filing says Manafort while out on bail has attempted to tamper with witnesses. So jail him to prevent him tampering with witnesses. Judges ruling will be soon. 98 % of all documents and 99.2% of information in electronics findings seized by the FBI from Cohn have been reviewed by the special master in the Cohn investigation and are NOT restricted by attorney/ client privilege. So much for Trump's claim of attorney/ client privilege.. No shielding Cohn and Trump from prosecutors regarding the huge evidence seized from Cohn by the FBI. See an explosion coming?

"Estimates of annual United States fossil fuel subsidies range from $10 billion to $52 billion annually (GOP supports it and now Trump wants more subsidies) – yet none of these include costs borne by taxpayers related to the climate, local environmental, and health impacts of the fossil fuel industry. Fossil fuel subsidies in the United States also include massive military expenditures to acquire and defend fossil fuel interests around the globe, and infrastructure spending and related maintenance based on an antiquated energy system built on large, REMOTE power plants and cheap electricity (will get way more expensive to support fossil fuels)."

Other nations are promoting cheaper clean energy. I guess Trump thinks they will pay for our stupid subsidies. Putin and Arab Monarchs love the direction Trump is taking America.

Stand for this (incentives for dirty dangerous energy) " leak of a Trump administration draft memo outlining a plan for federal action to prop up coal and nuclear plants that were unable to compete in wholesale power markets and faced retirement. Details of plan outlined in the memo are here: “Trump Administration to Force Purchases of Coal, Nuclear Power.”

Unprecedented Government Intervention

In a joint statement, a diverse group of energy industry associations including energy efficiency and storage, natural gas, oil, solar, and wind, condemned the action, saying the subsidized “failing coal and nuclear plants. The proposed action is “misguided” and “would hurt consumers,” the group said."

Republicans are for dirty energy, air and water.

Great LTE! Who in the heck wants to pay outrageous prices to sit and watch a bunch of steroid brained muscle heads preach about a mostly imagined "struggle" while driving Ferrari's? lololol.. Most were pushed through school and if not for football 30-40% would be in prison for violence or dope.. Disrespecting everything and everyone that ever served, bleed or sacrificed and the families that suffered as well. Hit these coddled fools where it hurts. Shun anything NFL.. No respect? Good!get your Ferrari payment off someone else...cause we ain't down with your imagined "struggle" in the land of unlimited opportunity.

Yankeejudd These childlike expressed emotions disrespect the owners of the team, the team in general, the league in which they play. As employees they surrender their right to exhibit any behavior they wish. They are NOT on their own time; that clock is under the control of the team owners. Evidently, the time they spent in acquiring their education was limited to learning locker room antics!

It is rather apparent those who seek respect and equality are at the forefront in disrespecting the symbols of this country. They remind me of spoiled children, laying on the ground and kicking their feet as they make a feeble attempt of displaying their childish emotions. These fellows are playing a child’s game and their actions are true to form of children. They need to grow up!

Outrageous, sickening, and disgusting - exact words that come to mind every time I read one of Dickie Kalfus's opinions. The players are kneeling, not to disgrace the flag, but to protest the killing of unarmed black men by the police. Any pinhead would know this. I'm sure Martin Luther King would say "its fine to protest, but make sure no one sees you".
