~Eric Reid: Why Colin Kaepernick and I Decided to Take a Knee~


Sept. 25, 2017

In early 2016, I began paying attention to reports about the incredible number of unarmed black people being killed by the police. The posts on social media deeply disturbed me, but one in particular brought me to tears: the killing of Alton Sterling in my hometown Baton Rouge, La. This could have happened to any of my family members who still live in the area. I felt furious, hurt and hopeless. I wanted to do something, but didn’t know what or how to do it. All I knew for sure is that I wanted it to be as respectful as possible.

A few weeks later, during preseason, my teammate Colin Kaepernick chose to sit on the bench during the national anthem to protest police brutality. To be honest, I didn’t notice at the time, and neither did the news media. It wasn’t until after our third preseason game on Aug. 26, 2016, that his protest gained national attention, and the backlash against him began.

After hours of careful consideration, and even a visit from Nate Boyer, a retired Green Beret and former NFL player, we came to the conclusion that we should kneel, rather than sit, the next day during the anthem as a peaceful protest.

We chose to kneel because it’s a respectful gesture.

I remember thinking our posture was like a flag flown at half-mast to mark a tragedy.

Keith Olbermann, #133 …. “💰 What Mike Pence’s Cynical Anthem Stunt Cost 💰 …. and the other Cabinet Members Too …. “!!


~~October 10, 2017~~



What’s the answer?

Seems that ‘draining that swamp‘ isn’t working as the public was lead to believe. Are you feeling it yet, America?

Tired of winning, yet?



The plan had been for Vice President Mike Pence to attend the Indianapolis Colts game at which Peyton Manning’s number was to be retired, a gala celebration of the former Colts quarterback’s contributions to Pence’s home state.

The former governor of Indiana and his wife, wearing a Manning No. 18 jersey, left Lucas Oil Stadium after the national anthem, following instructions from Drumpf after a number of San Francisco 49ers players, as they usually do, took a knee during the anthem.

“I asked @VP Pence to leave stadium if any players kneeled,” Drumpf posted on Twitter. “I am proud of him and @SecondLady Karen.”

The first rule of blatant political stunts is not to let on that they are blatant political stunts.

Pence was acting not out of spontaneous patriotism but out of blind loyalty to a president who reduces everyone around him to a sleazy character on a reality TV show.

I feel this is important information about what is happening in the Republican Administration lead by Drumpf and what we need to be aware of.
Keith Olbermann series called “The Resistance” continues.
He has posted installment #133.
The video speaks for itself.
If this resonates with you, good.
If it doesn’t, just scroll away to the next blog.
Thank you!

Thoughts for today, #434 …. “To protect and serve …. Really? …. “!!


~~November 6, 2016~~ 


When I thought about the police force before, I thought about how they expose their lives to ‘protect and serve‘ the communities they come from.

There seems to be a tendency to be drifting aways from the meaning behind that motto.

The picture/meme above is a perfect example.



In February 1955, the Los Angeles Police Department, through the pages of the internally produced BEAT magazine, conducted a contest for a motto for the police academy.

The conditions of the contest stated that: “The motto should be one that in a few words would express some or all the ideals to which the Los Angeles police service is dedicated. It is possible that the winning motto might someday be adopted as the official motto of the Department.”

To Protect and to Serve“, the motto of the Los Angeles Police Department since 1955, has been adopted by many other police forces.



‘All-Out War’ in North Dakota as Police Arrest 141 Water Protectors
Activists vow to keep up resistance to Dakota Access Pipeline

Police arrested 141 people in North Dakota on Thursday, November 3, moving in with pepper spray and armored tanks on Native American water protectors and other activists who for months have waged resistance against the Dakota Access Pipeline (DAPL).

Tara Houska, an Ojibwe attorney and director of the rights group Honor the Earth, told Democracy Now! on Friday, November 4, that the raid was an act of “all-out war … waged on Indigenous protectors.”

Houska, who was reportedly shot in the face with a beanbag round during the onslaught, also said in a separate statement released by a coalition of Indigenous groups on Friday,

“Yesterday was a shameful moment in American history.

Law enforcement is supposed to serve and protect the people, not corporate interests. Police enacted violence on people who were armed only with prayer.”
