1. lots of people represent our country abroad.
2. i don't have blanket support for our military. i support certain actions and disapprove of others. i expect that you and will will disagree quite strenuously over this.
3. i don't think military and entertainment should have anything to do with each otehr.
4. i consdier this to be an overt political statement, and i don't think a) any sports team should engage in politics, and b) any employer should compel their staff to make or even support such a statement.

this is mlse going off the deep end for me politically. i simply do not support that.
