Forgive the crude turn of phrase but I fully support his 'RIGHT' to protest and I stand behind his ummmm cajones .......
NHL Champ Tim Thomas Declines White House Invitation Due To "Out of Control Government"
One of the perks of winning a championship title in professional sports is to attend the traditional White House meet-and-greet, where the President himself comes out to congratulate the players and to throw a few pre-scripted jokes. Well Tim Thomas, the all-star goalie of the Boston Bruins and winner of the playoff MVP award did not perceive this rare occasion as a privilege. Nope, in a gutsy and controversial move, the only American-born player on the entire team totally boycotted the event. In his Facebook page, Thomas explained the reason of his absence:
“I believe the Federal government has grown out of control, threatening the Rights, Liberties, and Property of the People. This is being done at the Executive, Legislative, and Judicial level. This is in direct opposition to the Constitution and the Founding Fathers vision for the Federal government.
Because I believe this, today I exercised my right as a Free Citizen, and did not visit the White House. This was not about politics or party, as in my opinion both parties are responsible for the situation we are in as a country. This was about a choice I had to make as an INDIVIDUAL.
This is the only public statement I will be making on this topic.”
His absence was not well received AT ALL by fans and journalists who called him a “disgrace” and a “right-wing redneck”. I call him “someone who knows what the hell is going on and won’t stand for it”. The last few administrations have indeed betrayed the very foundations of the US Constitution and it doesn’t take a “right-wing redneck” to realize it. We’ve seen in the past weeks the voting of some of the most disgusting laws in US History, notably the NDAA, the police-state law.
So, in short, it takes guts to win a Stanley Cup but it takes balls of iron-clad steel to reject the President and to tell the world what you think about the presidency. Kudos, Tim Thomas. I for one respect your move.

Perhaps You could find more ways to give tools for readers to learn discernment and taking back ones power so as too Affect the change from within as our reality is emenated from our beliefs and convictions. So reading the rumor mill one must be careful not to focus on negativities but rather what we wish to see happen,,its easy to get carried away by the ego as it becomes energized with resentment,anger,,judging others,whereby seperation from Divinity follows,,where if we where to focus on Being happy,seeing the beauty,being certain things are changing ,by the fact that these article and truth are being shared for All to see,,,Out of chaos comes great change ,,I am not advocating sticking ones head in the sand like an ostridge,,but reading being informed but not dwelling on these negatives we see around us....Thnks for listening.

I followed the links and found in this article, then links in their articles and found that the comment sections to this topic has been closed in multiple places. So I sent emails to the effect that I registered to their sites simply so I could comment and the fact that the comment section is closed only fuels my desire even more to speak my heart. I feel that Tim Thomas is a hero for his bravery and I will now be looking for more and more places to state my opinion. He needs our support and recognition for his strength, his awareness, and his courage. Tim Thomas... you have a new fan.
