We all have heard at one time or another, "karma is a bitch". Well I can tell you first hand, the mainstream media and network television is lying to all Americans and certainly we the people of the Eastern Shore.
I thought for the heck of it that I would travel around the local beer gardens in the Ocean City area to see just what kind of impact we the people are having on local bars. So I went out on Sunday and Monday night to see and even ask local managers how the NFL kneeling was impacting them.
Some local bars are closing their doors during the games, that's a fact. The impact is incredible, yet no one seems to be covering it. Your local media would like you to believe things are simply normal and they are not.
Now am I interested in talking about businesses hurting, absolutely not. However, it's a reality and truth and that is exactly what SBYNews is all about. This hasn't just impacted NFL television ratings, it's destroying the Bar Industry and if there's ANY finger pointing it should be pointed at the NFL for destroying what has always been well known to be a HUGE entertainment business, especially during football season.
There is not one person I have spoken to over the past few weeks that is in fact watching the games and I'm being very serious. Now I'm sure there are some who are but none that I have spoken to and I speak to a lot of people each and every day.
That being said, each and every one of you reading this need to think deep and recognize just how strong Americans are truly feeling about the NFL's decision to slap us in the face AND the financial impact this has placed on businesses. I, for one, will be dedicated to no longer watching Football from here on out. I stand with my President and all of the VFW's and others who fought and even lost their lives for America. I will not ever lose or bend my beliefs in America and what we stand for.
