Sports & Politics This section is for all political sports talk. Regrettably we feel that in some instances there is no way to eliminate politics from football, basketball, and baseball hobbytalk. Do you pretend nothing is happening with the Warriors, Steelers, A's, etc? This section is for all political sports discussion. However, it is for civil discussion only. No insults aimed at members, political parties, or politicians will be tolerated. There is no warning. If you cannot be civil, you will lose your posting privileges on this site.

I have been in a hospital more times than you have fingers and toes. And the current politicians think I could have chosen a healhier lifestyle and thus Iím a burden on society so my healthcare should be taken away.

Now you know why I despise this half of America and the voter base that perpetrates this evil. Same people who hide behind a flag and tell me patriotic BS.

Sweet to blame successful old white men
Doesnít seem prejudiced at all
Stereotyping
Nice

In other words..
Since you and your family donít blame others and feel sorry for yourself then your story doesnít matter

The goverment does play a role in providing this to us whether you chose to believe it or not. There is no other place I would rather live then here when it comes to my health care and medial facilities for my disabled children.
Thank you

I wish I could move, but Iím at the late stages of CF and just staying in my home nearly everyday is all I can do to extend my life. I live with my parents and I wouldnít have been here today without them, but thatís where my blessings end. Itís just me and my parents. The world is not kind. We get by like everyone, but realize the ignorance and arrogance apparent in certain states and the anthem kneeling in question is a way to push back. I applaud it.
Not a single player kneeling is doing it for you or anything associated with you

But go ahead and applaud it just because itís Anti government

You really think itís about feeling sorry for myself? My parents would bitchslap you for saying that. You have no clue and never will. You make one more gesture about my illness and you need to take a dirt nap.

Enjoy your suspension!

Maybe you can keep it up and get yourself banned?

Good luck.

Saying sorry in your pretense is offensive to me.

You say you're 32, yet you're reacting emotionally like a pre-teen. Look in the mirror.

Healthcare is very emotional to me personally no doubt.

I know pain.

Maybe if you took full responsibility for your life (EVERYONE in this life chooses their path, you know), you'd have a healthier attitude.

For just an ounce of perspective, my lungs are slowly choking off to death. One day I will stop breathing from a coughing attack if a complication of my scarred lungs or diabetes doesn’t get me first.

100% yes. No one chose your life for you.

You can either accept who you are, or not. The second option brings plenty of angst.
