Pennsylvania high school hockey league bans national anthem to save money on ice time

[preamble]
disgraceful but expected. The minority chipping away at the majority. This is the new America created by Obama. A country without national pride. Disgraceful. Christmas and Chanukah, thanksgiving whats next? My church, my beliefs my world is now slowly being controlled by my government and the small group of people that have no understanding of America and what keeps it alive.

Who voted for this man? Why are we not screaming STOP? Why do we allow this to happen?

 

When they came for my friends i said nothing

then they came for my family and I said nothing

when they come for me – who will be left to say anything?

History Repeats itself.

EVERYONE CALL THIS FOOL IN PENNSYLVANIA AND TELL HIM TO TAKE A CUT IN HIS SALARY AND PLAY THE NATIONAL ANTHEM![backtopost]

As first reported by Pittsburgh CBS affiliate KDKA, the Pennsylvania Interscholastic Hockey League has issued a directive to 183 high school squads in central and western Pennsylvania banning the national anthem from being performed.

“The national anthem should not be played only because of time constrains,” PIHL commissioner Ed Sam told KDKA. “It’s not that we’re not patriotic, that’s the furthest from the truth.”

While Sam’s words might sound like bizarre lip service, there actually is some logic to the PIHL’s decision to kick the national anthem out of high school hockey. Sam notes that ice time in western Pennsylvania is quite expensive, making every minute of rented time sacred in an era of cutbacks throughout interscholastic athletics.
