    I have finally come to the point where it is hard for me not to get a tad angry with all of the threats, especially the racial threats, coming down the pike.
    Quite frankly, I am starting to take it personally and for me, that is Definitely with a very large capital D as in Defiant, not a good thing.
    A threat, to me, is the stance someone wants to take against someone else and is willing to go the distance to achieve that initiative. Now, when it comes to a threat of physical violence I am more than willing to stop everything and go into combat mode to guard, to whatever length it takes, against injury to family, property or my person.

    All over the air waves, in the media and on the net there are (BLM) black people saying that they will RIOT if Trump is elected, or riot for this and burn for that. Today a young black man was on my FB page saying that if we (white people) do not pay reparations then he and others will come and take it! Uh, my comment was less than civil.

    It's a funny thing but in N. Carolina and S. Carolina it is against the law to physically threaten another individual. All it takes is a call to 911 and somebody goes to jail. Simple.
    If incitement to riot or do harm is not enough to put people in jail then the Supreme Court needs to sit down and establish what Freedom of Speech really entails for it seems that Freedom to Threaten is more protected and takes precedence over it's root.

    Dunno what anyone might have to add or comment to that but that's my story and I'm stickin' to it!!

    IMHO it's time to lay in a stock of self defense. It really irritated me last night when I saw the news of a black football player who makes more money than I will ever see, refuse to stand for the national anthem. Who does he think he is being paid by? It's just plain BS.

    Yes, that's Joe Kaepernick, the Quarterback for the 49er's. According to his statement and tweets he will not stand up for the National Anthem and the American flag because they somehow back black oppression and white supremacists.
    The long and short of it is that the 49er's backed him up by saying that he has a right to his own form of expression. Still, the country is all in arms over it especially now that it is revealed that he is also a Muslim.
    So much in arms that even the Giants, as a retaliatory measure, all stood up on the side line at full attention and with their hands over their hearts when the Anthem was played and the vast majority of the Giants are, yep, black.

    I really believe that the overwhelming majority of all races are good people but then again, all it takes is for a few money and power hungry idiots to start an entire war.

    He needs to catch hell he talks with two faces. I didn't see him throw away his paycheck. I hope Karma bites him in the ass cause when your not thankful for what you have sometimes you no longer have it.

    Yeah, I got the first name wrong. Sorry To all the Joe's and pity to all the Colin's. Are you really, really sure his first name isn't actually Colon? That would be a perfect representative for BLM.

    Half breed? I thought that pejorative term had been replaced by biracial.

    Hey Frank. Not at all. An honest question. I work with veterans of all ethnicities. Each has served my country with honour. They have my respect. Currently, two of my clients are biracial. Multiple tours of duty in Afghanistan, wounded more

    than once. The woman is highly decorated. She lost her arm, one eye, and much of her hearing as a result of rescuing three members of her group. She almost bled out. Salut, mes amis.

    Half breed, biracial, what's the difference. They are words that describe the same thing. People are too sensitive about everything these days.

    Retired Lt. Colonel and past Representative Allen West made a statement about the Kaepernick ordeal with some verbiage that is worthy of sharing on a mega level. His statement should be read in every college and university in the U.S. and written on plaques to be hung on the walls of every government agency including the president's Oval Office!!

    Your position is absolutely correct in it's essence but there are always kinder ways of saying things. Although I hold no particular liking for C.K. there are others in this discussion group who might fit into the catagory of bi-racial and could possibly find the more colloquial terminology to be much less than complimentary or even somewhat crude.
    Synonomic relationships in our vocabulary are actually beautiful tools for it allows us the opportunity to either build up or break down using the true definition of tact, which is: The ability to tell someone to get bent and not have them realize it until an hour after you have left the premises.
