Clarify code of conduct


President Donald Trump has started another fire storm. Freedom of speech and expression, or forced expression of patriotism?

My wife and I have been on both sides of the argument and are in agreement on this point. If I went to work, punched my time card and was officially on the company clock, then kneeled and recited the Lord’s Prayer, would my employer be justified in telling me that action was not appropriate in the work place? The answer, of course he (or she) would.

It is time to put the “to kneel or stand” controversy at sport events behind us. The only way this will happen is with clarification from the employers — the NFL, NHL and NBA. When you’re on the clock, this is how you will conduct yourselves, period.
