Fwd: Fw: Fwd: 'Who's protesting 'what' ?

Funny, But Sad...

I guess when your schooling is free, you don't feel the need to learn anything.
Just because some athletes went to college doesn't mean they were educated in anything but football.
Just another example of why you can't fix stupid.  Do not miss the last one!!

NEW YORK (World News Bureau) - In a recent polling of 585 NFL players, nearly all of them were unsure of exactly what they are protesting. Here's a sampling of responses to the question:

"What are you protesting by kneeling during the National Anthem?" 

"Pretty sure it's against Nazis - especially the white ones." 

"We're protesting America becoming capitalistic instead of equal." 

"I'm protesting against Trump saying black lives don't matter." 

"We're against global warming and the police." 

"We're showing the world that we care about, ahh, things such as.... such as...ahhhhh, freedom from suppression?"

"Me and my fellow players are protesting the Constitution of Independence because of what it does to people of color." 

"We are displaying our right to stand up by kneeling for our beliefs." 

"We are protesting Trump, because he, you know, keeping the black man down and sh*t.." 

"Myself is kneeling to show that just because I'm American don't mean I got to act like one." 

All above comments are from gentlemen with at least 4 years of an American College Education.

Subject: Amazing Football
I saw an amazing football game this year on TV:
1) The player's hair fit under their helmets.
2) No tattoos could be seen.
3) There were no outlandish end zone celebrations.
4) There was no taunting.
5) Opposition players helped each other up after a play.
6) Footballs were not spiked or left for the referee to retrieve; they were handed to the referee.
7) No one took a knee on the sidelines.
9) Players stood at attention during the playing of the national anthem.
10) It's great to watch an Army / Navy game.

Fwd: FW: Best Comments of 2015

Ole’ Colonel Ollie North……… What a quick, and caustic, cut to the chase wit..!!

Humorist Frank J. Fleming: "The problem for a modern day military is figuring out how to destroy an evil enemy without hurting their feelings."

 Best comment of the year so far. Heard this on Fox News this evening (Mon., 1/12) from Oliver North. Some one asked why President Obama, Vice President Biden, Eric Holder nor Secretary of State Kerry were NOT at the solidarity March in Paris on Sunday.

Colonel North said,

"That's Because; The March was for 'World Leaders' "….!!

Frosty fatwa: Saudi cleric bans snowmen


Nope. (Joel Bissell/The Grand Rapids Press via AP)
Do you want to build a snowman? You'd love to? Well, that's too bad — at least according to Saudi Arabia's Sheikh Mohammed Saleh al-Munajjid, a prominent cleric.
With snow covering the highland areas of Tabuk province in Saudi Arabia, there's not much else to do with the fluffy white stuff other than build snowmen and snow camels.
But with photos of snowpeople and snow camels popping up everywhere, Munajjid made it clear that Islamic teachings strictly prohibit the practice.
Asked whether the unusually snowy winter in Saudi Arabia meant that parents could build snowmen with their children, Munajjid delivered the bad news.
"It is not permitted to make a statue out of snow, even by way of play and fun," Munajjid wrote on his Web site, according to Reuters.
He also pointed out that making images of humans and animals — anything with a "soul" — is strictly off-limits.
"God has given people space to make whatever they want which does not have a soul, including trees, ships, fruits, buildings and so on," he added.
If you think that sounds slightly depressing, you're not alone.
“We have snow for fleeting days, maybe even hours, and there is always someone who wants to rob us of the joy and the fun,” wrote a blogger identified by Gulf News as Mishaal. “It seems that the only thing left for us is to sit down and drink coffee."
But Munajjid has his supporters.
"It [building snowmen] is imitating the infidels, it promotes lustiness and eroticism," wrote one person, according to Reuters.
In the wake of the raucous debate on social media sparked by his fatwa, Munajjid weighed in again and walked back his comments — sort of.
On Twitter, Munajjid noted that snow objects can be made, so long as they don't have human or animal features. Specifically, a model with no head and obliterated features is perfectly fine.
“The model should be like the scarecrow with no features sculpted into the face that is used by farmers to scare away birds,” he wrote, according to Gulf News. “It could also be similar to some shapes that are used to warn people about roadworks. There is no problem with the shapes that children build since children need to play and to have fun, especially in areas where snowfall is scarce."
And for those who were wondering, the prohibitions also apply to gingerbread men and other human-shaped winter treats.
“The ban, condoned by religious scholars, also covers models of people and animals made of sweets and paste, not just snow, if their facial features are clearly sculpted,” Munajjid added. “This means that if the model has no head or the facial features are obliterated, then there is no ban on it."
Sounds like a blast.
