Sound Off for Sept. 28: Find a different way to protest

FILE - In this Sunday, Sept. 24, 2017, file photo, Buffalo Bills players take a knee during the playing of the national anthem prior to an NFL football game against the Denver Broncos in Orchard Park, N.Y. What began more than a year ago with a lone NFL quarterback protesting police brutality against minorities by kneeling silently during the national anthem before games has grown into a roar with hundreds of players sitting, kneeling, locking arms or remaining in locker rooms, their reasons for demonstrating as varied as their methods.

Thank you!

Steelers offensive lineman Alejandro Villanueva thanks for being American strong and Mississippi proud. Thank you!

Waiting!

I am patiently awaiting Paul Hampton’s snarky comments on the disrespectful NFL fiasco.

Miss you, Bill!

Great to see ol’ Bill O’Reilly being interviewed on the Fox Sean Hannity Show last night. We miss you, Bill!

Be careful

There’s an old saying,” don’t bite the hand that feeds you.” I think the NFL protesters better be careful. They might quit getting fed!

Fix it!

Come on, Congress! You make up bigger words than compromise all the time and bipartisan is only two letters bigger than partisan. Even Obama said the ACA wasn’t perfect and would need tweaking. Get off your ego and fix it.

Outside help

It’s pretty obvious Bay St. Louis has some major issues. And it looks like it starts right at the top. Maybe it’s time to have an independent agency come in and do some looking.

Be thankful

The coaster on my coffee mug reads, “Home of the Free Because of the Brave.” It’s not Hemingway, but it tells the story in eight simple words. Next time you see a flag-draped coffin coming off a commercial jet being delivered to bereaved loved ones, remember he/she died to ensure your right to protest. Find a different way rather than dishonoring our flag in front of 100,000 fans. You shame yourself. Think what you are doing. The next time you see a man or women in uniform thank them for their service. Man up!

Enough!

The Green Bay Packers have been my favorite team since the days of Bart Starr, Jim Taylor, Paul Hornung and Vince Lombardi, but I will not watch another NFL game until the spoiled and unappreciative players and owners have vehemently and openly apologized for their behavior and attitudes. I will purposely boycott all products and services advertised on NFL broadcasts and will encourage others to do the same until the players and owners learn to appreciate the feelings of millions of patriotic citizens. We’ve had enough of your entitlement attitudes.
