How can I convince my SIL...

My SIL is a former sheriffs deputy who has fierce loyalty to the police. He is a good man. A wonderful husband and a great father to my 5-yr old granddaughter. However, he insists on hanging a “Blue Lives Matter” flag on his front step. I don’t know how to get him to understand that the meaning of that flag isn’t what he thinks or at the least has changed from what it was originally meant to be. He believes it is supporting law enforcement but I see it differently. When I see that flag, I think of police overreach, radical extremism and white supremacy. I know he doesn’t see it that way, but I am concerned that he is giving his neighbors the idea that he is of that ilk. I think he is just being stubborn.

I’m not sure how to approach him about this. Any suggestions would be very welcome.


The Nation is inhaling a huge sigh of relief and has hope once again for our future.

I, personally, feel uplifted. I have awakened from a four year nightmare. I can breath again.

Welcome, President Biden and Vice President Harris.

Did Cruz say no?

I so wanted Mitt Romney

Chuck Todd should not be leading this broadcast

He can’t handle unscripted broadcasts like this one!!
