Something’s Wrong

Tuesday, September 13th, 2016

I’ll just go ahead and say it, something is very wrong in this country! Today, September 13th. Right now. This very minute. Wrong, wrong, wrong. The worst part? It’s only going to get more ridiculous.

I love NFL football! Ask my kids, I scream my head off during every Colts game. I’m a sold out fan! However, I cannot wrap my brain around the garbage allowed and celebrated while another player is punished for wearing game cleats honoring 9/11.


What is happening to our country?



It’s ignorant! It’s disrespectful! It’s enough to make a person hate watching the NFL at all.

It’s no wonder we’re in the current state we find ourselves in as a country.

Here in Indianapolis, Colts player Pat McAfee is a force to reckon with. The man works tirelessly for causes up and down the spectrum of need. He is a man on a mission. He maneuvers his fame as an NFL player to make great things happen for people who never stand a chance. He is the real deal!

Which is why I’m harping on this whole debacle of celebrating a real cool joker who kneels in protest during the national anthem while another guy is fined and punished for honoring the people who died on the most tragic September day in our country.

See, something’s wrong here.

I watched last night as the camera guys stayed locked on Colin Blahblahnick and his fellow comrade during the national anthem. The amazing military jets flew over, cameras focused on the two buffoons kneeling down. A talented young woman (Lindsey Stirling) played her heart out on the violin, the cameras zoomed in on Thing 1 and Thing 2. Military personnel held & waved a giant flag, the cameras again, focused on the two dummies protesting all things America. Then, the cameras pan over to other players holding up their fists in black power poses and the ESPN announcers praise Kaepernick as thoughtful and how wonderful he is for opening up this “discussion”.


He isn’t to be praised. He isn’t helping stop racial divide. He isn’t making a point that is in any way propelling America to a better place. He is smearing his crap all over the good and solid parts of our country and the media is lapping it up like thirsty dogs.

I feel sorry for people who think like him. He is believing a pack of lies. You would think our country would be at its finest hour with a black President – but the truth is, we are more racially charged up and divided than we’ve been in a long time. Is President Obama to blame? I don’t know. I do know that he has done an enormous amount of damage to push the agenda in the wrong way.

I’m sick of the whole scene. I will never mistreat anyone because of their color. I also won’t be a guilty party simply because I’m a white lady in a land where injustice has occurred. Every single person has a responsibility to behave in a way that honors God and country.

Something’s wrong. Are you a part of the problem or the solution?
