    The problem will always be... how do you get people to care about more than just their own interests.

    People struggle with their own life every day and people want to be acknowledged.

    No one cares about an issue until it's at their front door. The US rarely had to deal with the idea of terrorism because it was always isolated outside of the US. Once 9/11 happened it hit our front door and now it's somehow one of the biggest fears for people... even though everyone is more likely to die in a more mundane way statistically speaking.

    Back to Syria and Assad, it's truly a weird tipping point where we will either allow cooler heads to prevail (which will probably be lead by a non-US contingent) or we begin massive saber rattling.

    I think the farther we move away from the truly horrific things that were used in the past we fail to really understand how horrific they are.

    The problem when you put people in place like Trump is that he will never look out for the best interest of the country or the world. When you are suppose to the number #1 country in the world, you bare that burden of who people need to look up and we are failing. The US should be leading the way in brokering peace and preventing the use of such weapons.

    The worst thing about Trump (and there are many) is that he will make Bush look competent... that's an incredibly sad fact based on the 1,000's of missteps by Bush and his administration.

    8-4; not a bad first couple of weeks.

    Still concerned about their pitching moving forward.

    Seahawks announce they've signed free agent kicker Sebastian Janikowski:

    The Seahawks added a well-known name to the competition for their kicking job, signing former Raiders Pro-Bowler Sebastian Janikowski Friday.
    Janikowski, who was born and raised in Poland before moving to Florida when he was 16, was a two-time All-American at Florida State before being drafted in the first round of the 2000 draft. He went on to enjoy a memorable 17-year run with the Raiders before missing the 2017 season with a back injury. Known for his big leg, Janikowski tied the NFL record for longest field goal, making a 63-yarder in 2011, a record that has since been broken by one yard, and he holds an NFL record with 55 field goals of 50 or more yards.
    Janikowski, 40, earned Pro-Bowl and second-team All-Pro honors in 2011, and over the course of his career has made 80.4 percent of his field-goal attempts and 98.9 percent of extra-point attempts.

    From Ian Rapoport I:

    The #Seahawks did postpone a tentatively scheduled workout with Colin Kaepernick, as @AdamSchefter reported. It was not because he said he declined to stop kneeling, tho. The team asked for his plan moving forward on how to handle everything and there was not a firm plan.

    From Ian Rapoport II:

    #Seahawks brass, John Schneider and Pete Carroll, want Colin Kaepernick to consider how he wants to proceed on everything (not just anthem) and get together at a later date when his plans are formed. Clearly, Seattle has accepted players speaking out for what they believe.

    Per Adam Schefter:

    After arranging for Colin Kaepernick to work out for the Seahawks this week, Seattle postponed the trip when the quarterback declined to stop kneeling during the national anthem next season, league sources tell ESPN.

    Charles Robinson wrote:

    More: After canceling workout, #Seahawks left door open to start over w/ Kaepernick. Basically, canceled the visit, talked of starting over. This at least partially aligns with @RapSheet reporting Seattle wanted a "plan". But STRONG disagreement that kneeling wasn't any issue.

    So this is interesting... My take is that the Seahawks don't have a particular issue with Kaepernick kneeling but they want him to have a plan. Much like Doug Baldwin and his action meeting with law enforcement, their unions and government to get resources for more training, I think this is along those lines.

    I definitely see the side that will say that they won't bring him in at all but the Robinson tweet provides more insight to me about long-term plans opposed to just him continuing to kneel.

    Glad he signed his tender. Liked him in his limited role last year; hope he can build upon it.

    Seattle Post Intelligencer Writes:

    The Seahawks have reportedly agreed to sign cornerback Dontae Johnson, according to NFL Network's Mike Garafolo. Terms of the deal have not been disclosed.

    Johnson started 16 games for the Niners last year. He had seven deflections and one interception; a pick-six against the Jaguars in Week 16. Before last year he had only started 6 games. He was drafted in the 4th round out of NC State in 2014.
