Re: “Republicans feverish about basketball team statement. 1st Amendment? What 1st Amendment?

Cato- I'm not on a "side", certainly don't ever stand with the gun nuts; just hate when people immediately invoke the 1st Amendment when there is criticism of someone's stance on an issue. It's both "sides" that do this, by the way. Until somebody gets arrested, it's not a 1st Amendment issue. Those who are criticizing these young women have the same rights as they do, and even elected officials have that right.
As far as this particular issue, I think what the U of A AD and basketball coach have said is absolutely great. Asa wasn't supportive of them, but he wasn't ridiculous either

Re: “Republicans feverish about basketball team statement. 1st Amendment? What 1st Amendment?

Well, I've read the paper this morning, and watched the news, and I still haven't seen anything about their arrest report. I know they must have been arrested, otherwise Max and all of the Constitutional Experts on here wouldn't be bringing up the First Amendment. I'm assume we'll get the details later today.

I guess I missed the part where a government official said they were sending them to jail for this. I know you understand the First Amendment Max and wouldn't have brought it up unless the players had been arrested. Sorry I wasn't aware of that.

Re: “Razorback women take a knee during National Anthem; angry fans erupt

Why is anyone saying this is a First Amendment issue? They are not getting arrested are they? The government is not punishing them. Most of you guys don't understand the Bill of Rights.

Re: “Message for Waltons: Charter schools won't fix poverty

Not necessarily supporting everything the Walton group wants to do about schools, but had to laugh at the novel idea of the best way to end poverty is to give poor people more money. Hard to argue with that! Of course, where will those people, and their children, be in 20 years if they don't get an education and better jobs? Haven't we been trying that for the past 50 years or so?

Re: “UPDATE: Smith to get $850,000 to coach Razorbacks

I think it's a very smart move by Long. A true caretaker/interim with local knowledge and head coaching experience, but avoids the situation of having one of the current assistants becoming interim head coach, the team having a great year, and then Long is boxed in to promoting him to permanent status.
