    WTF is so bad about running your camps, versus playing for USA Basketball? I can't blame him for feeling conflicted; that is, if he's not just another idiot running his mouth for effect.

The national anthem isn't designed to say thank you to the troops, it's designed to foster conformity and nationalism.

    Wow, another idiot. Do you guys all hang out together or what? How the **** do you begin to tell me what the flag or national anthem means to me? Tell me...how? I see faces on that flag...you wouldn't understand would you!

    I don't think he thought about youtube and all that stuff, he just blurted it out. It's easy for people to get outraged about that stuff but I guarantee that's how many African Americans feel. It's hard to feel overly patriotic when you haven't exactly benefited from your country. And before someone says, "hasn't benefited? he's a millionaire athlete!" I guarantee you that the vast majority of his friends and family are close to impoverished. So he's saying it from the "safety" of lower class America.

    I don't care what it means to you, I just said what it is designed for. Look at how quick you are to ostracize people who don't want to conform to that mold, you resort to name calling. And there's medication you can take to stop seeing those faces.

    I would fight to the death if I thought the right to sit in the comfort of my home was being threatened, but it hasn't. The danger in your mindset is that there can never be an unjust war because to call into question the justification for war is to call into question the troops. So I'm not going to be bullied into lying about these wars to make everyone feel rosey. War is a waste and every soldier's life that was lost in a war since WWII was wasted. If that offends you I apologize, but I'd rather offend you than play along with the politicians who exploit the respect people have towards the intentions of the troops.

    Oh, you mean when 12 civilians orchestrated a hideous crime on US civilians? The only time my freedoms were threatened because of that was when people like yourself chastised anyone who questioned the Bush administration and it's oppressive policies in the aftermath.

    Read up on the "civilians" that orchestrated that massacre, junior.

    There's hundreds of thousands of them out there right now, plotting our demise.

    I dont have time to build an adult from the ground up. Open a book or google it.

    Implicitly conditioned on his never actually exercising said right, of course.
