NFL, YOU ARE LOSING THE GAME!

The old saying is, ”When you dig the hole too deep to climb out, stop digging”. This seems too technical for most of the NFL players. Surprisingly it also seems too confusing to a majority of the NFL franchise owners. Now the NFL Commissioner says keep kneeling today and he picked up the shovel again. So far the score is Trump and the Veterans 102, NFL 0 and the NFL is continuing to dig deeper.

These under educated millionaires could afford to pay an army of sympathizers to march on the White House, get Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton to organize another “Million Man March”, or hire Bill Ayres to attack another police station to get attention. They could all gather at the Liberty Bell, UN Headquarters, the Eiffel Tower, or atop Mt. Everest but bubba’s, don’t try the Alamo. There are two Texas NFL team owners who understand when there is a time to hold’em and a time to fold’um.

I noticed today that were groupe of both players and owners meeting in New York to develop new strategies. God bless them, they are still fighting. Even most high school dropouts fully understand when you have lost the fight you crawl back home to get bandages. It does not surprise me that these iron heads expect the public to join them in a battle to emancipate the blacks again for the umpteenth time. Most mature people who read the news understand that when you have 13% of the population you get favored by asking for help rather than demanding it.

Another fact is that there are likely a couple of million brave blacks that have died saving America from oppression during far too many wars. If they could see how today’s black athletes chose a losing reason to seek notoriety they would slap them around themselves. I served with some of the finest friends I ever had in the US military. Most of those that lost a leg, an arm or their life signed a contract just like I did at 17 to give up all of my rights just to serve our flag and the National Anthem. We did not get a signing bonus the first time around or a multi-million dollar contract. Although it was 70 years ago my salary was $38 a month, three meals a day, uniforms, shoes and a cot to sleep on.

I am proud of every day I served, I stand at attention when the flag is raised, often shed a tear when the Star Spangled Banner is played and cried every time I was on burial detail for a veteran of any color. My blood is red, white and blue and watching Donald Trump actually do something to force the VA to help our veterans has been a highlight of my golden years.

Why don’t you do something positive and attend a black veterans funeral once in your rich life. Watch the family tears. See them bury a good man who signed his rights away to serve and give you the rights to free speech. Learn that the Veterans of Foreign Wars, VFW, the Disabled American Veterans, DAV and the American Legion are dedicated to helping veterans and your donations will actually help the black ones too.

I feel fortunate that I was never in battle during my time during the Korean war. I lost some classmates and friends I shall never forget. They did not ask to die, want to die or plan to die but they did and it humbles me every day of my 87 years. I wear my red shirts thay Fuzz Palmer reminds me to wear every Friday, honoring all veterans. I have a favorite one that says,” I am not a hero, but I walked beside a few”.

You were all Americans at one time in your sorry life and equality will never happen until “YOU” help unite our country instead of dividing it wider. Be leaders instead of dividers and take your inner wars to another stage where the Flag and National Anthem may not scared. The NFL will never have me watch you play again as the owners allowed you to dishonor the flag and the Star Spangled Banner. Any other real American will join me in scrapping all professional sports if they continue to spit in the face of every veteran who served in the US Military with honor.

Lay down your shovels, wave the flag, stand during the National Anthem or hope you can make a living protesting  somewhere else. You started this battle and deserve to lose the war. You are truly an ungrateful bunch of morons to disrespect our flag and anthem. You have pissed off the President so hang onto your seat belt, your future rides will be scary.

OLD AMERICANS – ITS TIME TO LEAD!

The typical U.S. household headed by a person age 65 or older has a net worth 47 times greater than a household headed by someone under 35, according to an analysis of census data released Monday. If all of us “old folks” have all of the money, then let us try to elect someone who might be near honest and not be after feathering their own nests.

They like to refer to us as senior citizens, old fogies, geezers, and in some cases dinosaurs. Some of us are “Baby Boomers” getting ready to retire. Others have been retired for some time. We walk a little slower these days and our eyes and hearing are not what they once were. We have worked hard, raised our children, worshiped our God and grown old together. Yes, we are the ones some refer to as being over the hill and that is probably true. But before writing us off completely, there are a few things that need to be taken into consideration.

In school we studied English, history, math, and science which enabled us to lead America into the technological age. Most of us remember what outhouses were, many of us with firsthand experience. We remember the days of telephone party-lines, 19 cent gasoline and milk and ice being delivered to our homes. For those of you who don’t know what an icebox is, today they are electric and referred to as refrigerators. A few even remember when cars were started with a crank. Yes, we lived those days.

We are probably considered old fashioned and out-dated by many. But there are a few things you need to remember before completely writing us off. We won World War II, fought in Korea and Vietnam. We can quote The Pledge of Allegiance, and know where to place our hand while doing so. We wore the uniform of our country with pride and lost many friends on the battlefield. We didn’t fight for the Socialist States of America; we fought for the “Land of the Free and the Home of the Brave.” We wore different uniforms but carried the same flag. We know the words to the Star Spangled Banner, America and America the Beautiful by heart and you may even see some tears running down our cheeks as we sing. We have lived what many of you have only read in history books and we feel no obligation or need to apologize to anyone for America.

Yes, we are old and slow these days but rest assured, we have at least one good fight left in us. We have loved this country, fought for it and died for it and now we are going to save it. It is our country and nobody is going to take it away from us. We took oaths to defend America against all enemies, foreign and domestic and that is an oath we plan to keep. There are those who want to destroy this land we love but, like our founders, there is no way we are going to remain silent.

It was mostly the young people of this nation who elected Obama and the Democratic Congress. You fell for the “Hope and Change” which in reality was nothing but “Hype and Lies.”

You have tasted socialism and seen evil face to face and have found you don’t like it after all. You make a lot of noise, but most are all too interested in their careers or “Climbing the Social Ladder” to be involved in such mundane things as patriotism and voting. Many of those who fell for the “Great Lie” in 2008 are now having buyer’s remorse. With all the education we gave you, you didn’t have sense enough to see through the lies and instead drank the ‘Kool-Aid.’ Now you’re paying the price and complaining about it. No jobs, lost mortgages, higher taxes and less freedom.

This is what you voted for and this is what you got. We entrusted you with the Torch of Liberty and you traded it for a paycheck and a fancy house.

Well, don’t worry youngsters, the Grey-Haired Brigade is here and in 2014 we are going to take back our nation. We may drive a little slower than you would like but we get where we’re going and in 2014 we’re going to the polls by the millions.

This land does not belong to the man in the White House nor to the likes of Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid. It belongs to “We the People” and “We the People” plan to reclaim our land and our freedom. We hope this time you will do a better job of preserving it and passing it along to our grandchildren. So the next time you have the chance to say the Pledge of Allegiance, Stand up, put your hand over your heart, honor our country and thank God for the old geezers of the “Grey-Haired Brigade.”

I received this from my old friends Mike and Emma Cobb who are younger than myself but Americas who love our country and our freedoms. I wish I knew the great American who wrote this great message so I could give credit. I can do what they requested by posting this article on this blog and asking those who agree to share it with everyone they know.  C Brewer
