All of this hysteria could have been avoided if the commissioner of the NFL, Roger Goodell, had disavowed Kaepernick’s kneeling in protest, claiming that an employee in uniform is prohibited from self-expression at any sports or 49ers event involving the team. It was a personal expression that may or may not express the employer’s views.

Certainly, every American citizen has a constitutional right to express his or her opinion on his or her own time, not while employed representing a company or owner. The national anthem was a means to convey a message had nothing to do with being a patriot.

Air traffic

EDITOR: I am very concerned about the increase of jet traffic noise in Sonoma County. I see subdivisions being built without the infrastructure to support increased growth. I am dismayed that the Board of Supervisors approved enlarging the airport terminal to accommodate more air travel. In my opinion, the county government is in the devil’s pocket.

What happened to individual responsibility to lessen your carbon footprint?

I know it is going to be hard to change from the use of fossil fuels. There is little to no government support. It is up to individuals to stay more local, invest in alternative fuel vehicles and change ways to reduce the use of fossil fuels. Do you really want to see the s--- hit the fan?

Firing offense

EDITOR: Wouldn’t you love to see one of these Republican senators or House members, when the 45th president disrespects women, minorities and anyone who disagrees with him, say, “Get that son of a b---- out of the White House right now. Out. He’s fired.”
