In the news: Ohio Supreme Court justice blasts Browns over anthem protest

Justice Bill O’Neill writes on Facebook he won’t attend any games at which “draft dodging millionaire athletes disrespect the veterans who earned them the right to be on that field.” He said Tuesday “shame on you all.”

The draft ended in 1973. Any NFL player who potentially dodged the draft would have to be in their 60s. Any of these guys still around to suit up for Browns games?

Veterans earn rights?

If there is an honest reason to send people away into decades of undeclared/unwon wars overseas (The Department of Defense track record goes back to 1949) let’s hear all about it.

Why do we pretend that the US Armed Forces function as some sort of giant civil rights organization?

Hey school teachers- 

If veterans earn rights, why were black people still riding at the back of the bus after the big WWII victory?

If veterans earn rights, why were women not allowed full voting rights at the end of WWI?

If veterans earn rights, why was it that until July of 1971, 18 year old adults could not vote? Why didn’t US Military operations conducted in the 1940s, 50s & 60s get the job done on this?

Why the need for a 1965 Voting Rights Act if overseas military operations somehow secured voting rights?

If veterans earn rights, why, in 1967 was an interracial couple sentenced to a year in jail for violating Virginia’s ban on marriage between people of different races?

If veterans earn rights, can I take my 20 year old girlfriend (a responsible adult) down to the bar to order up a few beers for freedom?

Should we check with the Joint Chiefs of Staff first?


In some cases, the US Armed Forces provide for our physical security. That’s as good as it gets.

In terms of American rights and freedoms- The Dept. of Defense has no more say than the Dept. of Agriculture.
