"Yes Dear, Trump bashing needs to stop..." 'James "Kimo" Rosen' (Kimo's world #211)

James "Kimo" Rosen is a retired professional photographer
 and amongst other things lived in a tent outdoors for 7 years.
Rosen currently resides on the tropical island of Kaua'i
with his best friend and spiritual adviser Ivanka Da Dog!


Publishers note,
This past week was historical when the boy-scouts decided to accept
the girl scouts as members.
It was a politically correct move 
encouraged by woman's groups across the nation,
 not the girl scouts themselves.
Enclosed is dakinetalk's
 favorite meme on this issue






Yes Dear, Trump bashing needs to stop

Blog #1964~Kimo's world #211

What does it do to other nations when our late night talk show hosts are constantly bashing our President?  Jimmy Kimmel, Jimmy Fallon, Seth Meyers and Steven Colbert make a living of Trump bashing. These are not fun jokes about the president but rather humiliating, demoralizing rants against Trump.


Many of the Hollywood elite bash our President on a constant basis. It's rogue, it's the cool thing to do.Try and remember we are all on the same side and must create a united front to the enemies, otherwise we are beaten before we even begin.

The recent Emmy's that appeared on CBS are a recent example of a Trump bashing fest by the Hollywood elite.

The TV show "The View" is relentless on Donald Trump. They don't let up, from the way he shakes hands with dignitaries, to the shoes the  first lady wears. 

The ladies are always making fun of his family, even his minor son Baron is not off limits for the woman of "The View." 

 "Real Time" with Bill Maher bashes and hates Trump, however Maher at least has other issues on his agenda. He also bashes Hillary and democrats. Maher is an equal opportunity comedian.

Late night with Steven Colbert is the ring leader and  has one punch line, it's Donald Trump.
His every joke is a slam against  President  Trump. A sad excuse for a comedian. A sad excuse to constantly demean your own President. In other countries one could be jailed for treason for speaking out against your president like this.


Remember the days of the old Tonight show with Jay Leno? Jay could joke in a respectful manner that was not insulting, but funny about both major political parties. Jay was so good at comedy you never knew what party he was affiliated with because his jokes were fun, not filled with hate-- something our late night comedians need to learn and take heed.

Do these modern day comedians not realize that even if they don't like President Trump, even if they hate him as much as they  publicly say they do, it  may not be in their best interest or our country's best interest to admit it and go on these rants and hate fests?   Do they not realize he is the most powerful man in the world and can at the snap of his fingers behind closed doors without you knowing order an IRS audit and so many other unimaginable audits to make your life a living hell?

 Americans bashing our president is not good for our country. Our enemies delight in all this.


My advise to anyone whom doesn't like Donald Trump is to not go public with your hate. You may wind up harming yourself far beyond your wildest dreams. Believe me! Keep your hate to yourself about 45.


If you do not like "The Donald," there will be more elections, stay cool, he won this one. Live with it for Gods sake and in the mean time pretend you like him, it will make your life much more tolerable. 

It's the equivalent for married men saying "Yes dear," even when they don't necessarily agree with their wives, the bennies (sic) far out weigh the repercussions.  
P.S.
A Must see! Just last week,
late night comedian Seth Meyers gives the President the middle finger on national TV, check it out. Like Trump or not, this kind of behavior must stop!

This says it all about the current national anthem crisis and the NFL!

"Jourdan Rodrigue's Kryptonite fails Superman, Cam Newton..." 'James "kimo" Rosen' (Kimo's world #210)

Jourdan Rodrigue's  Kryptonite  fails Superman, Cam Newton


 Cam Newton, Carolina Panthers star franchised quarterback also known as Superman because of his MVP performance 2 years ago when the Panthers appeared in the Super Bowl against the Denver Broncos.
Reporter Jourdan Rodrigue now
the one in hot water for
tweeting the "N" word.
Karma!


This past week  Charlotte Observer reporter Jourdan Rodrigue pulled out her  Kryptonite and Superman fell to the politically correct over paid 32 million a year salaried commissioner of the NFL, Roger Goodell and the"Yes Dears!"

This is what Superman said that got him in the doghouse, ""It's funny to hear a female talk about routes like -- it's funny," Carolina Panthers quarterback Cam Newton responded to a reporter's question, sparking outrage online.
The Cam Newton fallout begins ...   Really?
Cam Newton is Superman!


Dannon yogurt has announced they have fired the Carolina Panthers QB as a sponsor for their Oikos greek yogurt brand after his sexist comments to a female NFL reporter. 

"We are shocked and disheartened at the behavior and comments of Cam Newton towards Jourdan Rodrigue, which we perceive as sexist and disparaging to all women."   Are you kidding me?
No more Yes Dears, you did nothing
wrong Superman....


  It's OK to disrespect the American flag in the NFL but God forbid you have a little fun  with a female sports reporter. Cam was forced to apologize so he wouldn't lose any more future endorsements and to be politically correct and basically took one for the Gipper. I hope the NFL players do not grant this woman any interviews. She is a joke for taking this so far. If a woman said I think it's funny a man talking about perfume, clothing, or anything at all that is considered female only conversation.  Us dudes  wouldn't make a BIG kerfuffle about it.
Jourdan Rodrigues needs to be fired.
If she were a dude, she'd be out the
door by now.
 
(I stole kerfuffle from Judge Judy, always wanted to use the word!)

Funny how karma works, or how I like to say karmas a bitch. Black sports online looked into "Goody two shoes" Jourdan Rodrigue's twitter feeds and found out she is quite the racist. She was found using the "N" word in her twitter feeds and look who the spot light is on now.  What goes around comes around.
http://www.nydailynews.com/sports/football/reporter-jourdan-rodrigue-apologizes-offensive-tweets-article-1.3543331
Superman never should had apologized, he needed to take a lesson from "45." Whether you like "The Donald" or not, he has a set of family jewels bigger than letting a politically correct NFL commissioner make him apologize for something that was done in fun.
Our female reporter
sure can eat like a football
player. Here she is
trying to act equal.


No football player, especially an  Afro-American football player will ever want to grant an interview with this reporter. If she wants to be equal, act equal. No dude would had demanded an apology, he'd just shake it off and move on.
Plus nobody should ever use the "N" word in describing a fellow human being. If anybody needs to be fired it's Jourdan Rodrigue. She is the one who demanded an apology and was upset over such a small thing.  Sometimes it's better to keep your mouth shut. Poetic justice is a beautiful thing. "The Lord sure does  works in mysterious ways."

" NFL players stand for "God save the Queen" and kneel for "Star Spangled Banner..." James "Kimo" Rosen' (Kimo's world #209)

James "Kimo" Rosen is a retired professional photographer
 and amongst other things lived in a tent outdoors for 7 years.

with his best friend and spiritual adviser Ivanka-Obama Da Dog!

NFL players stand  for "God save the Queen" and kneel for  "Star Spangled Banner"


 The NFL game played in London on September 24,2017, the Baltimore Ravens vs. the Jacksonville Jaguars  where players took knees during the US National anthem, yet stood for the British national anthem, "God Save the Queen," was an embarrassment to any patriotic American.  
Hall of fame football player
Ray Rice taking  2 knees
tells press he wasn't
protesting , but rather
praying. He said this
after he found out many
of his endorsements were about
to be taken away from him.


What does England think? What do other countries think of this blatant act of disrespect by U.S. Athletes?? I bet Isis is celebrating with high fives and grape juice!

The sad part is many of our soldiers watch these football games. How do you think our service men and woman stationed and watching from overseas and Afghanistan felt? Here they are fighting for our country and they see these disrespectful thugs kneeling for a sport they play and make millions for.  Thugs, that's right! Did you know on average there is an NFL (National Felon League,SIC) player arrested every 7 days?
http://www.dailywire.com/news/21476/who-needs-rules-nfl-player-arrested-every-7-days-joseph-curl
Donald Trump Jr. tweeted on 09-24-17, "If only NFL commissioner, Roger Goodell cared as much about domestic abuse and traumatic brain injury as he does about disrespecting America."

An analogy that many NFL players may be able to comprehend. Comprehension is tough for many of them since many have suffered multiple concussions over their careers. Here goes; Kneeling for the anthem is the same as rooting against your team. When you kneel against the anthem and flag, the anthem and flag is basically your team, your team being your country, America.   How many players would kneel against their own football team? 
LeSean (Shady) McCoy
of the Buffalo Bills
displays a total
lack of respect for the United States
of America by stretching during
the National anthem prior to the
Denver Broncos game at
New Era stadium in
Orchard Park, N.Y.


How many NFL players would want their own team to loose a game? Similarly, when you take a knee during your country's national anthem on a world wide stage you are rooting against your country. 

Protest all you want on your own time. A good majority of us want our Sundays back without politics,  do your jobs, then go home and  be political all you want.


Maybe now the players can comprehend?

Please no snowflakes telling me I don't understand that America was founded on the right to protest, I get it? I was once a snowflake myself until I melted and  became a deplorable.One definition of deplorable is unforgivable, so yes, I am unforgiving to all the disrespect I have seen around the National Football league in reference to our flag and the national anthem.

I also get you don't root or vote against your team,(country) that's being a rat, a traitor, even  treason. 


I don't agree with everything President  Trump says, however I agree these  players kneeling and stretching during the US national anthem should be fired, plenty of guys willing to play for a fraction of what these multi millionaires make. 

God help America

P.S. 
I DIDN'T WRITE THIS BUT I, ALONG WITH MILLIONS OF OTHERS AGREE ...
This letter says it all, please take the time to read it....
An open letter to the NFL players,
You graduated high school in 2011. Your teenage years were a struggle. You grew up on the wrong side of the tracks. Your mother was the leader of the family and worked tirelessly to keep a roof over your head and food on your plate. Academics were a struggle for you and your grades were mediocre at best. The only thing that made you stand out is you weighed 225 lbs and could run 40 yards in 4.4 seconds while carrying a football. Your best friend was just like you, except he didn’t play football. Instead of going to football practice after school, he went to work at McDonalds for minimum wage. You were recruited by all the big colleges and spent every weekend of your senior year making visits to universities where coaches and boosters tried to convince you their school was best. They laid out the red carpet for you. Your best friend worked double shifts at Mickey D’s. College was not an option for him. On the day you signed with Big State University, your best friend signed paperwork with his Army recruiter. You went to summer workouts. He went to basic training.
You spent the next four years living in the athletic dorm, eating at the training table. You spent your Saturdays on the football field, cheered on by adoring fans. Tutors attended to your every academic need. You attended class when you felt like it. Sure, you worked hard. You lifted weights, ran sprints, studied plays, and soon became one of the top football players in the country. Your best friend was assigned to the 101stAirborne Division. While you were in college, he deployed to Iraq once and Afghanistan twice. He became a Sergeant and led a squad of 19 year old soldiers who grew up just like he did. He shed his blood in Afghanistan and watched young American's give their lives, limbs, and innocence for the USA.
You went to the NFL combine and scored off the charts. You hired an agent and waited for draft day. You were drafted in the first round and your agent immediately went to work, ensuring that you received the most money possible. You signed for $16 million although you had never played a single down of professional football. Your best friend re-enlisted in the Army for four more years. As a combat tested sergeant, he will be paid $32,000 per year.
You will drive a Ferrari on the streets of South Beach. He will ride in the back of a Blackhawk helicopter with 10 other combat loaded soldiers. You will sleep at the Ritz. He will dig a hole in the ground and try to sleep. You will “make it rain” in the club. He will pray for rain as the temperature reaches 120 degrees.
On Sunday, you will run into a stadium as tens of thousands of fans cheer and yell your name. For your best friend, there is little difference between Sunday and any other day of the week. There are no adoring fans. There are only people trying to kill him and his soldiers. Every now and then, he and his soldiers leave the front lines and “go to the rear” to rest. He might be lucky enough to catch an NFL game on TV. When the National Anthem plays and you take a knee, he will jump to his feet and salute the television. While you protest the unfairness of life in the United States, he will give thanks to God that he has the honor of defending his great country.
To the players of the NFL: We are the people who buy your tickets, watch you on TV, and wear your jerseys. We anxiously wait for Sundays so we can cheer for you and marvel at your athleticism. Although we love to watch you play, we care little about your opinions until you offend us. You have the absolute right to express yourselves, but we have the absolute right to boycott you. We have tolerated your drug use and DUIs, your domestic violence, and your vulgar displays of wealth. We should be ashamed for putting our admiration of your physical skills before what is morally right. But now you have gone too far. You have insulted our flag, our country, our soldiers, our police officers, and our veterans. You are living the American dream, yet you disparage our great country. I am done with NFL football and encourage all likeminded Americans to boycott the NFL as well.

P.S.S.
Here are some fun facts about the hypocrites over at the NFL:
In 2012, the NFL had an issue with Tim Tebow kneeling for each game to pray, they also had an issue with Tebow wearing John 3:16 as part of his blackout to avoid glare and made him take it off.
In 2013, the NFL fined Brandon Marshall for wearing green cleats to raise awareness for people with mental health disorders.
In 2014, Robert Griffin III (RG3) entered a post-game press conference wearing a shirt that said "Know Jesus Know Peace" but was forced to turn it inside out by an NFL uniform inspector before speaking at the podium.
In 2015, DeAngelo Williams was fined for wearing "Find the Cure" eye black for breast cancer awareness.
In 2015, William Gay was fined for wearing purple cleats to raise awareness for domestic violence. (not that the NFL has a domestic violence problem...)
In 2016, the NFL prevented the Dallas Cowboys from wearing a decal on their helmet in honor of 5 Dallas Police officers killed in the line of duty.
In 2016, the NFL threatened to fine players who wanted to wear cleats to commemorate the 15th anniversary of 9/11.
So tell me again how the NFL supports free speech and expression???
Feel free to copy and paste, I did!

The NFL, The Hollywood elite, comedians,  all dictating politics
Big news! The NFL is currently in a frenzy loosing
thousands of viewers every week as fans boycott
watching NFL football

 This blog also appeared as an editorial in the Oct 4, 2017 edtion of the Garden Island news;
http://thegardenisland.com/news/opinion/mailbag/letters-for-wednesday-october/article_d2f84f51-080d-5347-ad49-00c8cc649ba1.html

Why are comedians, actors and sports figures all of the sudden dictating politics? If I wanted to watch politics I would watch MSNBC, CNN,CSPAN, or FOX. When I watch late night talk shows, I want comedy, not
Late night talk show host
Steven Colbert has one punch
line, It's Donald Trump.Half
the country loves him, half the country
hates him.
the hosts personal views on politics, who cares? Just like I don't care about my favorite football player's personal view on politics. That's not what they get paid to do, or why people watch them. One of the many reasons we watch sports and comedy is to get away from the stress of politics, especially during  these modern days of mayhem.


 NFL football has been ruined with politics by both players and now President Trump.

This past week President Trump said, If a player wants the privilege of making millions of dollars in the NFL, or other leagues,” Trump tweeted, “he or she should not be allowed to disrespect our Great American Flag (or Country) and should stand for the National Anthem. If not, YOU’RE FIRED. Find something else to do!”
http://www.espn.com/nfl/story/_/id/20788354/president-donald-trump-speaks-nfl-player-protests
 I find it baffling to see people up in arms about Trump concerning his remarks about NFL players taking a knee during the national anthem and in the same sentence saying it's the NFL players right to freedom of speech/protest. Like him or not, he's an American with those same rights as the players,President or not. Some people are completely blinded to their own hypocrisy.
Football players need to stick
to football.  I am ashamed this
statement came from a
player on my favorite team, the
Buffalo Bills.


Late night comedians, the Hollywood elite and sports personalities should all stay out of politics. The President in the same essence should concentrate on politics and stay out of football.  I may agree with the president however like the bible say's;
There is a time for everything,
    and a season for every activity under the heavens:
Ecclesiastes 3:1

FYI-
ABC News reports 54% of Americans say NFL Football Players should stand for the Anthem!
Did you know----The specific rule pertaining to the national anthem is found on pages A62-63 of the NFL League Rule book. It states:
“The National Anthem must be played prior to every NFL game, and all players must be on the sideline for the National Anthem.
“During the National Anthem, players on the field and bench area should stand at attention, face the flag, hold helmets in their left hand, and refrain from talking. The home team should ensure that the American flag is in good condition...
...It should be pointed out to players and coaches that we continue to be judged by the public in this area of respect for the flag and our country. Failure to be on the field by the start of the National Anthem may result in discipline, such as fines, suspensions, and/or the forfeiture of draft choice(s) for violations of the above, including first offenses.”
So players get fined for excessive celebrations after a touchdown but Mike Tomlin Head coach of the Pittsburgh  Steelers takes his whole team off the field into the locker room for the national anthem when it's clearly against the rules. Fine every guy on this team!
BTW, one guy stayed behind; Army Vet & Steelers Player Alejandro Villanueva Stands For The Anthem While His Team Cowers In The Locker Room  (check out meme video)
https://www.facebook.com/MikeCernovich/videos/1312335358895513/
P.S
Amen! I need to share this.. I didn't write it.. but it says what our flag truly stands for!You really  want to take a knee?
Take a little trip to Valley Forge in January. If you don't know where that is, just Google it from the sidelines. Hold a musket ball in your fingers and imagine it piercing your flesh and breaking a bone or two. There won't be a doctor or trainer to assist you until after the battle, so just wait your turn.Take your cleats and socks off to get a real experience. Then take a knee.
Then, take one at the beach in Normandy where man after American man stormed the beach, even as the one in front of him was shot to pieces...the very sea stained with American blood. The only blockers most had were the dead bodies in front of them, riddled with bullets from enemy fire.
Take a knee in the sweat soaked jungles of Vietnam. from Khe San to Saigon...Anywhere will do. Americans died in all those jungles.There was no playbook that told them what was next, but they knew what flag they represented. When they came home, they were protested as well..and spit on for reasons only cowards know.
Take another knee in the blood drenched sands of Fallujah in 110 degree heat..Wear your Kevlar helmet and battle dress...Your number won't be printed on it unless your number is up! You'll need to stay hydrated but there won't be anyone to squirt Gatorade into your mouth. You're on your own.
There's a lot of places to take a knee. Americans have given their lives all over the world. When you use the banner under which they fought as a source for your displeasure, you dishonor the memories of those who bled for the very freedoms you have. That's what the red stripes mean. It represents the blood of those who spilled a sea of it defending your liberty.
While you're on your knee, pray for those that came before you, not on a manicured lawn striped and printed with numbers to announce every inch of ground taken...but on nameless hills and bloodied beaches and sweltering forests and bitter cold mountains...every inch marked by an American life lost serving that flag you protest.
No cheerleaders, no announcers, no coaches, no fans...just American men and women...delivering the real fight against those who chose to harm us...blazing a path so you would have the right to "take a knee."
You haven't an inkling what it took to get you where you are...but your "protest" is duly noted. Not only is it disgraceful to a nation of real heroes, it serves the purpose of pointing to your ingratitude for those who chose to defend you under that banner that will still wave long after your jersey is retired...
If you really feel the need to take a knee, come with me to church on Sunday and we'll both kneel before Almighty God. We'll thank him for preserving this country for as long as He has. We'll beg forgiveness for our ingratitude for all He has provided us. We'll appeal to Him for understanding and wisdom. We'll pray for liberty and justice for all...because He is the one who provides those things.
But there will be no protest. There will only be gratitude for His provision and a plea for His continued grace and mercy on the land of the free and the home of the brave. It goes like this...
GOD BLESS AMERICA!

P.S.S.

Jack Klenk
Jack Klenk, As a two time Iraq war veteran, I cannot in good conscience leave it on. Listen, you are free to believe in what you want, but I served with good men who have lost their lives standing up for the flag. It is incompatible with my experiences in life and I refuse to play party to it.

Your free to kneel. I'm free to switch channels.

Kevin Frier
Kevin Frier I'm always proud to be a bills fan and an American, and whether you choose to sit or stand for the national anthem, support the president or not, it's entirely up to you, you know why, because this is America, and we have our rights to freedom of speech and expression, wherever your political beliefs lie. Now, let's watch some football.

Bruce Kuntz, If you can't stand for the national anthem and respect the flag take it off your uniform, after serving 20 years defending this country and flag i find your kneeling to be the ultimate in disrespect I have ever seen, after being a fan for over 50 years I am done today.god bless America!

Patti Lisiecki I live by the stadium. TV was on, 2 jets flew overhead, players kneeling....I shut the TV off. Protest on your own time, not mine. That's my opinion.

Melissa Lynne Luvison My boyfriend and I got tickets to take our 6 year old son to his first Bills game at the end of October and we will not be attending. I am heartbroken because I love the Bills but I love my Country and my flag more. I suppose it's their right to kneel but it's my right to not support them or the NFL.

Mike Hayward For over 3 decades I stood by the Buffalo bills no matter how well they played or how much they lost but this is the final nail in the coffin. I'm down with the bills and the NFL.

Sandy Bandy
Sandy Bandy The only time one should kneel is TO THANK GOD He gave you the ability to play and to play in AMERICA...Our Flag and Anthem should be a REMINDER of the RESPECT we should have for OUR VETERANS WHO FOUGHT FOR OUR FREEDOM. Politics and views SHOULD STAY OFF THE FIELD. I can't do it at work, neither should the NFL....You kneel, WE WALK....

Hana Hou, Encore!


President Donald Trump took aim at NFL players who participated
 and are participating in the National Anthem protests, calling them
 “son’s of bitches”. Colin Kaepernick’s mother, Teresa Kaepernick,
 had a few words of her own.

“That makes me a proud bitch!” she said on twitter
