1. I agree.

Black, white, Indian, Hispanic, and all other types of people have fought bravely and died for this country. The freedom we have comes from them, not anybody in entertainment or government or business.

2. Who is "expecting" him to take part?

I didn't take part in any celebrations, and I don't think anyone gives a good goddam.

Celebrate if you want, don't if you don't want.

For the record, my ancestors didnít get to this country until about 1900.

5. Simple ... don't join in

if you don't want to, I doubt anyone really cares at all whether you do or not.

6. Anti-nationalism needs to be a thing, I have realized that we are one nationalist movement away from

a very dark path.

9. This is why no NFL team will seriously consider signing him

His age and talent level donít warrant the PR headache he would create on a regular basis. If he was a 23 year old phenom, sure, but a 32 year old who was injury prone 5 years ago? Not worth the off-the-field headache.

11. Only thing I expected was to drink beer eat steak and get to

Watch Hamilton in our yard with our family.

Went as planned.


Glad youíre woke since 2011, though.
