I am more concerned he doesn't understand the office's impact on economics when he speaks.

If we call out the left how can you condone these kind of things?



So would you be opposed to a president saying but American?

Yes I remember all of your outrage when Obama was suggesting firing Imus.

Let me just dig up your posts on that....


So you admit to hypocrisy?

You understand to qualify your argument also proves your hypocrisy?


On the contrary.

I had no problem with obama weighing in on Imus.


I have a feeling you don't want to try and make a comparison for me to have a rebuttal to but here's your chance.

Are you comparing Imus and every NFL player protesting during the anthem?

According to the law he should be fired. Do you agree with that?


No there is no proof that he did this based on soely partisan politics.

You must have missed the "or's" after the partisan part.

Reading comprehension is your friend.


It is qualified under solely for partisan politics

Yes I am opposed to the president saying buy American.

Are you opposed to Nebraska selling grain to China?

Read the law again, it covers more than just partisan affiliation.

They are the same in the question of should politicians be allowed to recommend firing people for behaviors they don't like.

I personally would not like to have seen Imus or the players fired, but don't think it's a huge deal for a politician to weigh in.

Again, it was dumb of trump and Obama to do it, but not a huge deal to me.

It's also qualified under "an employment decision" or "an employment practice".

Like I said, reading comprehension. You're ignoring 2 of the 3 qualifiers.

No i am not.

Nor am I opposed to a politician saying but American. Which has happened many times in our country.

My local congressman came to a parade here the other day and said to buy from local farmers.

What a tyrant, am I right?

Not a tyrant just ignorant of the reality of free trade.

Yes you are having a problem with reading comprehension.

It says if a person for partisan reasons, does x or y.

The or qualifies what actions a person can't take based off of partisan reasons.

No as long as laws are not being put in place to influence what companies get business, it is not affecting free trade for a politician to recommend buying American.

Things like subsidies however do affect free trade

Mr. Trump?

Bite me. As an original Seahawk fan(atic), I will follow them through thick, and thin (lot of thin, over the years...), we have at least one player who kneels during the anthem.

It is his right to express his feelings in this way. It's peaceful, non-disruptive, and makes his point. More power to him. It matters not in the slightest whether I agree or disagree, it's his right to do this.

So, to reiterate...

Mr. Trump? Bite me.


And it is also everybody's right to shut the TV off, stop buying NFL merchandise, and stop going to their games. Lol...aint America great?

The irony is when one of the kneeling players said "Trump needs to stay out of football." Lol. Yet here they are using the NFL to get at Trump.

It's offtopic but if you wish to try and defend the argument you may want to do so in another forum. I would gladly follow.

We can start with Nixon, Roger Stone's idol, and discuss China and the cpi.

We will see.

It is possible these protests were hurting NFL viewership.

The nfls doubling down may not only hurt their ratings, but may drive people that are tired of identity politics voting even more right wing.

Or maybe not. I guess we will see.

I can see what you're saying, I may have read it wrong. Question is though why do his supporters make it into a partisan issue? I see "the left" and "liberals" being thrown around like kneeling for the national anthem automatically means you're a liberal or part of the left.

Not to mention the HORRORS of some Nazi losing their job because they got outed.





It's discrimination for sure, mainly because they're white males.

It's really unfair how Nazi's get fired for holding views akin to genocide of entire demographics of complete strangers!
