September 24, 2017, 10:45:16 pm Psalm 51:17 says: The specific rule pertaining to the national anthem is found on pages A62-63 of the league rulebook. 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.”

Aluminum is a known neurotoxin that destroys cellular metabolism and function. Hundreds of studies link to the ravaging effects of aluminum. The other proteins and formaldehyde serve to activate the immune system and open up the blood-brain barrier. This is NOT a good thing."

Target halts clown-mask sales amid creepy clown hysteria
10/17/16

Target will stop selling clown masks amid a rash of reported clown attacks — real and fake — that have terrorized the United States in recent months, according to the Minneapolis Star-Tribune.

All of the company’s stores have pulled the masks “out of sensitivity for the issue at hand,” Target spokesman Joshua Thomas told the newspaper. Target has 1,799 stores in the United States, according to its corporate site.

The company also has stopped selling masks on its website. On Monday morning, searches for “clown masks” on Target.com turned up nothing. Links from search engines to clown masks that Target previously stocked simply led to a message that said “product not available.”

Clown costumes for children, oversize clown suits and “sexy clown” outfits are, however, apparently still available for sale.

The retail giant’s decision, just two weeks before Halloween, comes as the frenzy over “creepy clown” sightings and threats has reached a fever pitch.

Across the country, scary-clown rumors have led to school lockdowns and arrests.

As The Washington Post’s Ben Guarino reported in early October:

    South Carolina was creepy clown Ground Zero in August, when emergency calls from residents of Greenville County prompted deputies to search an apartment complex and the nearby forest for criminal clowns. A clown, or someone dressed like one, was “trying to lure children in the woods,” warned the property manager of Fleetwood Manor Apartments in Greenville. …

    What began as reports from concerned parents to police mutated into memes, pranks and, in some cases, felonious hoaxes. Although there is little evidence that clowns are stealing children or planning attacks, clowns (or at least clown images and paraphernalia) have been associated with a recent rash of mischief and violent threats.

The madness reached such a point that renowned horror author Stephen King had to step in on Twitter and, of all things, try to soothe people’s fears.

    Hey, guys, time to cool the clown hysteria–most of em are good, cheer up the kiddies, make people laugh.

    — Stephen King (@StephenKing) October 3, 2016

Target did not immediately respond Monday to interview requests.

The corporate retailer is not the first to hit the brakes on clown-mask sales this year because of the creepy-clown scare.

In Michigan, Crypt Keepers Halloween Emporium boxed up all of its less expensive clown costumes, lest its customers get hurt — or try to hurt someone else — while wearing them, the Detroit News reported.

“It’s not worth the sale,” owner Dave Douglas told the newspaper. “These people are causing an epidemic.”

That has not stopped people from buying clown masks wherever they can. Sales of clown masks, especially “evil” or “scary” ones, have spiked 300 percent this year, Halloween Express operations manager Brad Butler told the Wrap.

“As to why we’re selling more clown masks this year than last, I could speculate, but frankly my opinion doesn’t matter,” Butler told the site. “Truth is, I don’t know.”
