Opinion: Has Kaepernick’s Stance Made It Impossible To Get Signed?

We are now two weeks into another the NFL season and a certain social activist is still on the free agent market.

Opinion: GOP Still Missing The Boat On Gun Control

America is often referred to as the land of the free but that freedom that may not always be a good thing.
