    With the large number of ol' pharts at the Boat Festival this last weekend, the subject of age inevitably arises. And... once again... several folks expressed disbelief about how old I am. Everyone guesses younger. I put it down to the full head of hair, and the chatty/vivacious/flirty attitude. My sweetie says no. She claims is just an accidental side-effect of my lifelong commitment to immaturity. As argumentative as y'all know me to be... I have no comeback to that one.

    I'm on record in the Bilge, if you wish to look it up, as a defender of Colin's right to kneel during the national anthem.

    I'm also on record as having never called a first lady a whore.

    I kept it classy San Diego... you have not. In fact I don't think you give a single whit as to the Tillman's family, until it suited your needs. Myself, I've flown over the battlefield he was killed in, and while it was friendly fire, I'd never consider that a debate point concerning his value system. He sacrificed all, more than Kapernick can ever fathom, and how he was killed is not the point.

    I posted that meme not knowing his families desires, and I said I respected there desires and let it go. But you're the one who reposted the meme after I acknowledged their wishes.

    Colin Kapernick has sacrificed nothing.

    He can kneel for others... but not for himself.

    I never called Melania a whore. I said Michelle looked as though she knew how to use a hoe. It's just a testament to my subtle subliminal prose that you ASSUMED that I outright called the called a first lady a whore. It seems like you connected the dots all on your own.

    More innocent unarmed black men have been KILLED in our own country by white police. Killed exactly just as dead as Tillman. The only difference is his death was artificially celebrated. I don't care if you've flown your whirly bird as a "Contract Man" over the same place he was gunned down by his own. I've lived in places where getting pulled over while driving black would lead to the same result.

    Kaepernick IS kneeling for OTHERS and NOT himself - THAT'S THE WHOLE POINT

    Extremist mayor who issues a ban on buying Nike gear... steps on his own (lower lip, yeah... let's say 'lip') and has to reverse his proclamation.

    Well... there IS some debate. But the 'outrage' about gardening implements and slut-status is mostly just an attempted distraction from discussion of the Nike/Kneeling thing. When ya gots nuttin'.... you goes wit wat ya gots.

    hoe - Hoe or HOE may refer to: Hoe (food), a Korean dish of raw fish. Hoe (letter), a Georgian letter. Hoe (tool), a hand tool used in gardening and farming. Backhoe, a piece of excavating equipment.

    (JACKSON, Miss.) ó Mississippiís public safety commissioner disclosed Saturday that state police will no longer buy Nike products, saying the athletic apparel maker is unpatriotic and fails to support those in uniform.

    ďAs commissioner of the Department of Public Safety, I will not support vendors who do not support law enforcement and our military,Ē Commissioner Marshall Fisher said in a statement Saturday to The Associated Press.

    It isnít immediately clear how much gear the state police agency buys from Nike or if it purchases directly from the athletic apparel maker. Department spokesman Warren Strain said the department has bought shoes and shirts from the company, as well as tactical training uniforms.

    But Mississippiís Republican establishment is jumping to support the cause, with Gov. Phil Bryant lauding his appointeeís decision.

    ďI support the commissionerís decision,Ē Bryant said in a statement. The governor said the commissioner has the right to choose vendors his department does business with ďand itís not going to be a company that pays an individual who has slandered our fine men and women in law enforcement.Ē

    Incumbent Republican Governor Phil Bryant is ineligible to run for a third term due to term limits. The repugs will probably find another as bad and they will likely win again.

    . . .and itís not going to be a company that pays an individual who has slandered our fine men and women in law enforcement.
    Where has Nike slandered members of law enforcement? For that matter, where has Kaepernick slandered law enforcement?

    anybody? bueller? bueller??

    maybe bdub will stop arguing about garden implements long enough to give the question a go. . .

    Wasn't my trick. I was frankly condemnatory.

    Pointed out that CK's stated position was the protest was about racial inequity. Mentioned that he's stated it had nothing to do with disapproval of flag, etc. Said his interpretation was either remarkably ignorant, or deplorably, cynically, venal.

    Finished by saying this sort of thing must be why my Alabama friends say, 'At least we're not from Mississippi'.

    https://www.wapt.com/article/governo...e-ban/23307352

    The Mississippi chapter of the ACLU issued a statement Tuesday:

    "Nike recently featured Colin Kaepernick prominently in a new advertisement campaign. Kaepernick took a knee during the National Anthem to bring attention to the lack of accountability of law enforcement officers who kill unarmed black men and boys. President Donald Trump has tried to divide our country by re-framing the lawful protest as unpatriotic and disrespectful of the military and an assault on law enforcement. In response to Nikeís ad, Commissioner of Public Safety Marshall Fisher and Governor Phil Bryant joined President Trump in his divisive culture war by implementing and supporting a ban by the Mississippi Department of Public Safety on the purchase of Nike products. The below quote can be attributed to ACLU of Mississippi Executive Director and retired U.S. Army Colonel Jennifer Riley Collins:

    ďMississippi has a long history of failing to acknowledge and hold accountable those who commit injustices against black and brown people and other ethnic minorities. Commissioner Fisherís decision to not purchase Nike products is yet another attempt to change the narrative and refuse to acknowledge that black and brown people are disproportionately being killed at the hands of law enforcement without accountability.

    ďLike, Marshall Fisher, I too served this nation in uniform. I did so proudly and honorably in peace and war because I believe that every American should have the right to exercise the freedoms for which I fought. Both governmental officials should be reminded that they represent all of Mississippi and are sworn to uphold the constitution, which includes the freedom of speech and right to peaceful protest.

    ďCommissioner Fisher, with the governorís aid, is trying to use the power of his public office to prevent others from expressing their support for Colin Kaepernick. Commissioner Fisherís decision is a clear response to political speech with which he disagrees. The most fundamental precept of the First Amendment is that the government cannot suppress one side of a public debate. The government cannot impose ideological litmus tests on government contractors.

    ďAbout 75 years ago, the Supreme Court held in the Barnette decision that Ďno official, high or petty, can prescribe what shall be orthodox in politics, nationalism, religion, or other matters of opinion or force citizens to confess by word or act their faith therein.í Mississippians individually can use their power in the marketplace to express their satisfaction or dissatisfaction and advocate for or against political, social, and economic change. We saw this during the Boston Tea Party, the Montgomery bus boycott, and the campaign to divest from businesses operating in apartheid South Africa. The government and our state leaders in their official capacity, including Marshall Fisher and Governor Bryant, however, cannot participate in unconstitutional efforts to stamp out First Amendment-protected campaigns.

    ďWhatever you may think about Nike or Colin Kaepernick, political protests are a legitimate form of non-violent speech, and are protected by the First Amendment. When Kaepernick took a knee, it was not in opposition to law enforcement or the military nor was it disrespectful to this country. It was in protest of the pervasive racial injustice that still remains in our country. If Mississippi is to ever escape the vestiges of its divided past and move forward to become a place of hospitality and opportunity for all, our stateís leaders must focus on legitimate governmental issues.Ē"

    The organization says that Bryant's support of the Nike ban is a violation of the First Amendment right of free speech.
