    but maybe a good knee to 45's jewels may be a better plan ..

    Just saw this and it made me think of you. This will do your heart good.

    ‘Take a knee’ comes to Germany: Soccer team kneels before game

    Players of Berlin kneel down prior to the German Bundesliga soccer match between Hertha BSC Berlin and FC Schalke 04 in Berlin, Germany, Saturday, Oct. 14, 2017. Hertha Berlin nodded to social struggles in the United States by kneeling before its Bundesliga game at home to Schalke on Saturday. Hertha’s starting lineup linked arms and took a knee on the pitch. The action was intended to show solidarity with NFL players who have been demonstrating against discrimination in the US by kneeling, sitting or locking arms through the anthem before games.

    Now tRump will tweet that fire will rain down on these soccer guys! I'll take a knee with 'em if somebody will help me up.

    I don't think it's disrespectful either. The Supreme Court said it was constitutional to burn the American flag as a part of our freedom of speech. Taking a knee before the flag during the playing of the national anthem is one of the most peaceful forms of protest I've ever seen.

    I can still do my "power to the people" raised fist which is a little more aggressive than taking a knee. Still feels good, too.
