    Jesse makes some good points. Our democracy ought to be able to handle a football player not standing for the anthem. Nobody's forced to join him or agree with him.

    For all of us who are against violence of any kind Trevor Noah goes off on Antifa. To be against violence by the alt-right but be ok with violence by the left would be hypocritical. It's almost like somebody calling Obama the "vacationer in chief" but staying silent about Trump taking more vacations than anybody in the WH in the last 100 years.

    I'm offended by this cartoon. Trump isn't that skinny!

    Donut Don has pledged (but yet to do) $1,000,000 to Harvey relief. If we take him at his word he's worth "in excess of $10 billion" he is giving 0.01% of his worth.

    The average household in Fairfax County is worth $979,029. It's equivalent to the average household in Fairfax County giving 9.8 cents.

    But let's look at yearly income.

    Trump makes, on the low end, $476million/year. The average salary in Fairfax is $63,368. Trump is pledging 0.21% of his yearly salary. Assuming we are "average," that would be like us pledging $133.

    $133 is nothing to scoff at, but let's not pretend like he's making this grand sacrifice, either. I'll pay that going to Brion's after a couple games this year.

    Not political, just proof there are some great parents out there. Obviously, these kids are being raised right.

    Way to tear down the argument nobody made. Because that was the gist of it right? if this A-hole doesn't stand, America will burn!

    Way to nail it and not make another logical fallacy.

    So in that spirit, Kappernick is an America-hating, Commie-lover, who supports cop killers. You support Kappernick's right to protest, so ergo you hate America.

    It's fun right???

    Gimme a break - I'm not arguing with anyone. I watched the video and thought Ventura made some good points.

    Look - someone who isn't religious shouldn't feel threatened by players praying before or after games. At the same time, anybody who doesn't agree with Kaepernick shouldn't feel threatened by his protest.

    Ventura said he fought for people's right to protest. That's the version of America that makes me proud. Not the one that buries a guy who has a different opinion.

    Yes, people feel threatened by it. Again the point.

    Nailed it!

    How they *feel*? Do the delicate flowers need to take their precious snowflake hearts to their safe space?

    They shouldn't. It's called democracy. Your sensitivity baffles me.

    It's called sarcasm. Your obliviousness does the same to me.

    Let's see, Quentin has never been even remotely sarcastic ever. Jim, like any of us would, went with what he knew. It sounds like Jim owned Quentin and after the fact Quentin said he was being sarcastic in order to try to save face. Bless his snowflake heart.

    Nothing says Christian values more than ripping apart families.

    But it's good we're getting rid of those 800,000 (even though Trump said it was 5 million, but that's neither here nor there) children of illegals! The average age of a dreamer is 6. We can't have those first graders running around!
