Many will take two, in church. But what about just one — on the field, with a hashtag in front of the phrase?

#TAKEAKNEE!!!!

Not being a sports guy, I could not care less about any of this — but some of you probably want to talk about it because it’s one of those hot topics that everyone has to have a passionate opinion about. So have at it.

  1. This is not something that matters a lot to me, either but it bothers me to see every area of our culture become so politicized. The football players started it but Trump is escalating it.

    It makes it that much harder to find common ground when everything becomes a battleground. I think the Democrats want that, and the establishment Republicans, and now Trump. They want Americans to hate each other if it means more power and security for them.
