At home, President Donald Trump is at war with the National Football League:
  1. Great solidarity for our National Anthem and for our Country. Standing with locked arms is good, kneeling is not acceptable. Bad ratings!
  1. ...NFL attendance and ratings are WAY DOWN. Boring games yes, but many stay away because they love our country. League should back U.S.
  2. If NFL fans refuse to go to games until players stop disrespecting our Flag & Country, you will see change take place fast. Fire or suspend!
  1. Roger Goodell of NFL just put out a statement trying to justify the total disrespect certain players show to our country.Tell them to stand!

  1. ...our Great American Flag (or Country) and should stand for the National Anthem. If not, YOU'RE FIRED. Find something else to do!

Going to the White House is considered a great honor for a championship team.Stephen Curry is hesitating,therefore invitation is withdrawn!
Direct message

It all started with Colin Kaepernick (below) and racial equality, extended to Seth Curry, and, now, much of American pro sports is defying President Donald Trump.  A lot more to come.

  1. The Trump-NFL encounter will not provoke a nuclear winter.  North Korea last month most probably detonated a hydrogen bomb underground.  (The recent tremor was probably a small earthquake.)  But President Donald Trump's latest exchange with President Kim Jung-un last week when at the UN he called Kim Jung-Un "rocketman," threatening to "totally destroy North Korea," has fearful implications.

    Kim Jung-un, renowned for his hyperbolic rhetoric, responded by criticizing Trump's UN speech "unprecedented rude nonsense," calling Trump a "mentally deranged dotard."

    North Korean Foreign Minister Ri Yongpho on Thursday said his country might now test "the most powerful detonation of an H-bomb in the Pacific Ocean."

    Trump again called Kim Jung-un rocket man in a Friday Alabama speech.

    Kim Jong Un of North Korea, who is obviously a madman who doesn't mind starving or killing his people, will be tested like never before!

How serious is a hydrogen bomb explosion in the Pacific Ocean?  If close to Hawaii, I could be killed.  This would be the first above-ground test since China in 1980.  But isn't there a Comprehensive Nuclear-Test-Ban Treaty which the United Nations General Assembly adopted in 1996?  Well...yes, but this treaty has not yet entered into force.  Why not?  The United States has not ratified the treaty.  Why not?  Republicans in the U.S. Senate (2/3 majority required) just do not ratify treaties.  

I was working in the U.S. Senate when the Law of the Sea Treaty was approved by the UN in 1982.  The USA is one of 14 countries not to have ratified.  We are in the company of Iran, North Korea, Afghanistan and Libya.  Okay with China and Russia.  About the Nuclear-Test-Ban Treaty?  We are with China, Egypt, Iran, Israel, India, North Korea and Pakistan.  The world is a funny place, and Republicans are interesting creatures.  Good way to end my posting on this Sunday.
