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."

(ie, the infrastructure is very bad here b/c for many years, they were grossly underspent on. 1st Tim 6:10, the god of materialism has its roots firmly in the West) And remember once upon a time ago when shacking up b/w straight couples drew shock awe?

Exodus 20:5  Thou shalt not bow down thyself to them, nor serve them: for I the LORD thy God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation of them that hate me;

Cowboys players turning on Jerry Jones over anthem ‘trash’

It sounds like at least one Cowboys player would like to protest Jerry Jones’ protest against the NFL’s widespread national anthem protests.

After the Dallas owner put his foot down with an ultimatum stating any player on his team who protests during the national anthem will be benched, the whispers have begun leaking out of the Cowboys locker room about the man who signs their checks.

“I’ve never heard this tone from Jerry, ever. Goes against everything he told us in Arizona,” one player, granted anonymity, told ESPN’s Josina Anderson on Wednesday.

In Arizona, Jones had knelt in prayer with the team, arms interlocked, just before the start of “The Star-Spangled Banner.” During the song itself, though, the entire team stood — which earned President Trump’s blessing, deeming pre-anthem statements OK but mid-anthem statements an apparent jab at the flag.

“Jerry told us to trust in him on this sit’n,” the player told Anderson. “Now I don’t know what 2 believe.That whole kneel b4 t/ anthem was trash.”

Jones thought he had threaded the needle of allowing his players to make a statement while not enraging a president and fanbase that wants everyone to stand during the anthem. But on Sunday, Jones demanded his players not protest racial discrimination in the US or Trump — as to what a protest entails, Jones said, “You’ll know it when you see it” — and threatened to bench any player who disobeyed.

Defensive ends Damontre Moore and David Irving had raised their fists at the song’s conclusion Sunday, but Jones insisted their statement came after the anthem was finished.

Trump and Jones have been in contact since the owner spun the anthem protest that Colin Kaepernick began by sitting and then kneeling for the song. After their chats, Jones decided he could not alienate any of his customers.

The league union released a statement condemning the mandate, saying: “We should not stifle these discussions and cannot allow our rights to become subservient to the very opinions our Constitution protects. This is what makes us the land of the free and home of the brave.”

Meanwhile, the NFL is contemplating whether to make standing for the song mandatory.

“It is what it is,” another player told Anderson about Jones. “Making more out of political BS on both sides.”
