I have been doing my best to write a post about my perception of the current NFL protests without sounding like I am too biased. But, after several attempts, I have given up. If I’ve learned anything in my forty plus years on this planet, it’s that a significant number of us think we are … More Will the Disrespecters of the Flag Please Stand Up?
