don't get me wrong.......i accept.......more then support Colin Kaepernick's right to protest what he feels is wrong......it is his right.......under the Bill of Rights .........i had a good friend who used the same freedom to protest something........i had a problem with what he protested....but not his right to protest.........
but with Colin's explanation he is protesting 'blue on black' issues.........which at most represent 1% of deaths that involve blacks........and ignore the fact that the majority of black deaths are black on black crimes.........i support his right to protest.......but what about the real problems........

i've been thinking today about some of the nutty things that have happened and came up with 2 beauts;
my brother and law and i were running a 20k race thru Binghamton NYS.........iirc it was the first competitive 20k i ran........so being inexperienced i didn't think to 'relieve' myself before the start......so just under half way i had a problem........i was in the middle of the downtown area at the time....and ahead of me were twin railroad overpasses with a narrow space between them.......took a detour between them and took care of the problem.......got back on course.......ran about 50 yards, a right turn and there was a water station, manned [as it were] by a bunch of girl scouts.......as difficult as it maybe while running.....i laughted for the next 100 yards......

we are in tbe middle here of the driest summer i can ever remember........the grass is brown and only some of the deep rooted weeds are green........i've been very frustrated of late........my internet connection has been inconsistent........but i have no control over it........it's part of the package where i live.......so i just have to accept and chill out........not some of my best attributes.....
