Happy Independence Day America!

Today, we celebrate the withdrawal of a set of people from a government that didn’t respect their beliefs. We celebrate the idea that a monarch doesn’t rule people by a dictate from a heavenly force and the truth that the rights of mankind supersede the rights of a ruler. We celebrate that all people should be allowed life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness as well as other unalienable rights.

Arizona Governor Withdraws Incentives After Nike Pulls Flag Shoe

I am done with Nike.

Colin Kaepernic was a so-so football player that was close to the end of his career. He wasn’t even good enough to get a job as an ESPN analyst. He maintained his relevance to some American consumers by inspiring contempt for America’s symbols. His original protests were supposed to be about police violence but now he seems to be branching into other forms of outrage – whatever will get his name in print, it seems.

I think everyone that hates America’s symbols just because they are old should buy Nike products and everyone else that loves America and understands that we have never been a perfect country but we sure have been better than the majority of countries in the last 250 years should not buy Nike products.

Good job to Governor Ducey for drawing a line in the desert sand.
