    So when should players start standing for the national anthem?

    When:.....................

    1. Donald Trump is removed from office?
    2. The US elects another darky instead of a whitey?
    3. The police lay down their arms and declare, "Just let it be"

    When exactly or should they never stand cuz the Founding fathers owned slaves?

    Elsewhere you rambled you were "tired of preaching" or some bollocks.

    Apparently it's also very much an issue for you that people don't "stand up for the national anthem".

    For someone who hates the state so much, you sure do love the state an awful lot.

    How do you even sleep at night not knowing whether people who are playing a game somewhere will partake in a ritual beforehand?

    Here you go, Whodey. Have some tissues ready and be sure to clean up afterwards:

    Oh, say! can you see by the dawn's early light
    What so proudly we hailed at the twilight's last gleaming;
    Whose broad stripes and bright stars, through the perilous fight,
    O'er the ramparts we watched were so gallantly streaming?
    And the rocket's red glare, the bombs bursting in air,
    Gave proof through the night that our flag was still there:
    Oh, say! does that star-spangled banner yet wave
    O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave?

    On the shore, dimly seen through the mists of the deep,
    Where the foe's haughty host in dread silence reposes,
    What is that which the breeze, o'er the towering steep,
    As it fitfully blows, half conceals, half discloses?
    Now it catches the gleam of the morning's first beam,
    In fully glory reflected now shines in the stream:
    'Tis the star-spangled banner! Oh, long may it wave
    O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave!

    And where is that band who so vauntingly swore
    That the havoc of war and the battle's confusion
    A home and a country should leave us no more?
    Their blood has washed out their foul footsteps' pollution!
    No refuge could save the hireling and slave
    From the terror of flight or the gloom of the grave:
    And the star-spangled banner in triumph doth wave
    O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave.

    Oh, thus be it ever, when freemen shall stand
    Between their loved home and the war's desolation!
    Blest with victory and peace, may the heav'n-rescued land
    Praise the Power that hath made and preserved us a nation!
    Then conquer we must, when our cause it is just,
    And this be our motto: "In God is our trust":
    And the star-spangled banner in triumph shall wave
    O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave.

    I'm just seeing how far you can count.

    To this point, I have to say I'm impressed.

    Naturally, no one wants to answer the question.

    That's right, Whodey. Your devastatingly difficult question has everyone stumped.

    Indeed. Why should you?

    You hate the US, just like the players in the NFL do.

    Why do you care about whether or not NFL players stand during the anthem?
