Huge congratulations to her and Team USA on their World Cup win last weekend! :)
VERY American. Disagreeing with a corrupt and inept administration is a patriotic duty. Not everyone must agree with the President.
Nice legs and abs, too.
She is gorgeous,love her look! Sexy tough girl! She is on the American football team?
Not very American. She doesn't stand for the national anthem.
Nothing more American than FREELY expressing one's view, likes, DISlikes in and about a country that HAS freedom of speech! Does not the flag/national anthem, represent the Bill of Rights AND The Constitution? The right NOT TO be forcibly made to do ANYTHING? "We did not sacrifice our lives for you to be forced to obediently worship the flag and the National Anthem, we died for your right to NOT do it" Ben Johnson
Well said, Ph. There are people out there whose actions (or inactions) are meant to call attention, not to themselves but to the fact that they disapprove of the way this country is headed. I'm very glad that Megan Rapinoe is doing this: she's not just an athlete, she's an icon.
How is the USA headed?
Under the current administration, we're an embarrassment to the world. The amount of corruption and lies just staggers the imagination. At least with the World Cup victory, other countries might once again have a favorable impression of us. Major kudos to Rapinoe and Team USA.
you are so right
Don't buy all the media negativity either though. There is a lot of positives, especially with the economy, that is going in the right direction. I'll not get into any other political stuff here as this isn't the place to do it. I'll just say I'm not a fan of Megan, she and some of her teammates were the embarrassment to me, not because of what she is trying to bring attention to, but their overall sportsmanship and how they won. Yes I'm glad they won, but I wish they could have done it with a little more class. Act like you've won before, which they have. A lot. So win with class and dignity. Represent, don't divide. We have too much of that. There is plenty of PR and air time for them now after they won to bring attention to whatever message they want to bring. I'm just saying, when it comes to sports, most want to enjoy it, it's something we look forward to, while it takes us away from the real world so we can just enjoy the sport and the thrill of the competition. Don't bring politics into it, it ruins it. IMHO.
With all that said.. she does have nice abs.
Great comment Kristi. Self serving political exhibitionism has no place in sports or entertainment in general.
terrible person, one could argue an attention whore as well. Not a victim, a snowflake
True, its no fun when people mess with your escape. However, if your escape is their platform to most effectively spread their message and that is unduly countered, well then the picking and choosing of who can speak and when and where starts. I'm not comfortable with that no matter who or when that is. "This is not the place for that" becomes synonymous with "Shut up and play" which is a euphemism of "Dance monkey, dance! Nobody wants to hear what you have to say!"
She has the hair of an old lady.
Agree with Kristi. I watched them play, it was good I thought women's football is worthless to watch but it is not and they showed why this year due to the all of a sudden sky high air time here in the EU. No faking injuries and that shit that goes on in men's football lately. But this fake political bullshitting is so cringe. They still earn ALOT and they want more cause uh...equality...or more like, equal outcome. "We want equal outcome therefore f.ck Trump" haha as if they were richer or something when the Dem's were sitting in the WH.
I dunno madd, this site has always had a sort of unspoken.. keep politics out of it. So I have and most others have also. You well know, things get out of hand fast and there are plenty of places made for that. So that is why I said, this isn't the place for that. Again, my opinion, no one told anyone to shut up. You may continue on if you wish. I was just saying, I chose not to keep going with it.
However, the one point I was trying to make, you said was unduly countered, I disagree. They have their platform now, they have more than enough time to share and talk on the shows and magazines they are apart of. Their platform should not be on the field while representing your country.
We are probably walking on thin ice as it is. I would expect this thread to be locked soon from what I've seen in the past. :)
Why can’t everyone just admire the beautiful woman and admire all the hard work and dedication that it takes to be very fit and toned. That’s what this site is about. Stunning woman!😍❤️
"Stunning and brave".....:D
I agree, that is what this site is for.
She is a great looking woman. I also like the way she uses her sport and fame to promote her positions.
I think what Kristi is saying is let's keep politics off this great site.
Sexy red blooded American. I had no idea she was hiding those abs under her jersey.
So right, Lothaire!
True Kristi - this isn't the place to get too deep into it, 'cause the owners & mods say so. That statement was more about an athlete's ability on when they promote their position. So now that I've LISTENED to other's opinion and stated my disagreement I'll stop and get back to admiring the beauty on this site. See you in the comments! ;)
simply put...the world is controlled as are all world leaders even nkorea.politics is just a show..nothing changes. people are ruled by fear and greed..with very few true [high personal cost] people...and at the top are very mean/evil entities..perhaps even alien or maybe this is a real kind of purgatory. our world country city town..is only as good as the people around us.people have been taught its ok to be mean from our behavior on our hypno screen called tv over the past 60 years or so. many people cant have real interactions and are just following patterns they learned from a childhood of tv etc. not so simple put now..but to try to say..whats going on in a nut shell is difficult and to make a encompassing statement is also in a terse way .i have no country..i am an individual.when tragedy ..much tragedy struck my family over the years.there was no country to help. there was no waltonsmountain [see?..tv] neighbor who stood by me when i was persecuted..etc..we are on our own.and yes i am a person i feel that could merit loyalty. were people not fearful and dependent upon money....the thing i see [my great uncle fought at iwo jima/my dad korea and my brother viet nam and according to my brothers trace we are related to daniel boone..blah blah...i want to love my country ,i want to love my fellow people..its not there.and i paid a price for believing in my country and people.i was disfigured at 18 when i was only supposed to have an eye surgery .my head was cut open and idk what done but i got a plate there and it has affected me ever since.no lawyer or doctor or fellow american has ever went to bat for me.i was even framed for an armed robbery when i was trying to get something done [long story]. by rights THIS IS OUR COUNTRY. by our fellow people it is a dog eat dog nightmare..i should of really dwelled as a kid more than i did and wrote things out....seeing what my fellows did to the indians who were native to this country,way back when..i should of been much more paranoid than i was..i was just a kid.....THE RESULT...THE RESULT OF OUR LIVES ON THIS PLANET..HAS BEEN IMPACT TO OUR HOME. the whole global warming deal blah blah..been a proponent of conservation since a kid myself...you know the whole argument blah blah..one thing i will warn you of..is the sun...every year more uva/uvb gets through..stay out of the sun..and i imagine uvc will get through a bit as the years wear on and everybody uses oil/gas and consume beef [mass animal methane]..if uvc gets through even to a degree it will be severe....bottom line..there is only you..if your lucky your family is true..and thats it..until you meet someone who is a saint and does not rely on money and lives from the land you shouldnt trust anyone with anything important. the whole mueller thing today is a show wether trump gets impeached or re-elected to 4 more years its the same ole same ole[tehy all take orders]...i think the last president we had that thought he could really change and help or didnt have to do what he was told to do was jfk. i think carter may have been the most kind. anyway my 12 cents worth....none of this matters its a dream...you better enjoy it and not sweat the little things or the outside stuff beyond your family..cause there is nothing you can change about it..and cultivate your life and to the river with your country and patriotism or whatever you want to call it...because nothing is going to change until the people change....do the people live off the land in harmony with primitive tech from 1700 and no cars etc...no its a a concrete too hot wild weather dog eat dog rat race....there were millions of people who died in world war 2 .alot on the beach......they could of had fun on that beach..instead they wore a uniform every side wore a uniform...perhaps whats needed is..uniform..a world dictatorship. all rules to be followed no errant behavior..steel...whip the psychotic humans into shape with purpose and form and no avarice or greed etc ..just TRUE drones.....were i king of the world ..it would be a paradise..but the way people behave to one another...i would i think..bring ..steel..id make the fiction darth vader appear like mr rodgers.. i am disgusted by most peoples..meanness...and sometimes it makes me mean...anyway good day to you..be kind to your people..we are all psychotic. its easy to be hard when we want our way.also there is nothing wrong with you that wasnt done to you by others..feel yourway to yourself
