    Goodell may get canned bc he’s under the spotlight right now, so “someone has to pay” is the mantra on the propaganda Wurlitzer. Don’t cry for Goodell; I’m sure he’s filthy rich and might even get some sort of golden handshake. Will this change anything overall? Probably not. Once the spotlight shines “over there,” all [...]

    Don’t these FB players take a lot of steroids? It induces ‘roid rage. I’ve seen it happen (on a limited scale, thankfully) at my gym with some members. That, plus these players make money for the Team owners, and fans will forgive the good players for anything they do. It’s all about money & blood [...]

  • Oh pity poor poor POOR Mr. Jews – he only gets to walk away with a lousy idle-widdle $9million. Yeah, for the love of all that’s Holy, let is NOT have Single Payer bc that would “socialist” and some dusky hued poor person might get something for nothing.

    But mega-wealthy Mr. Jews getting $9million after ripping off the system??? Hey, Jews is most likely RICH, WHITE & MALE – so it’s ALL GOOD to be ripped off by him, right?

    I heard or read somewhere that a divide grew between the older gen & the younger gen. Older gen had pensions that maybe would’ve been lost bc originate/funded/whatever from UK. The threat was that these would be gone if Scotland went Indie. Well, that’s a big threat.

    Agree that Salmond & his crew appears not to have done enough homework in advance to show how the system would work and how the Scottish people wouldn’t lose out.

    I also heard/read that others, such as crofters (farmers), were concerned about losing subsidies, which they needed for continued survival of their farms. Another one of the direct threats that Westminster made.

    I think that’s where some of the drop-off in votes happened.

    Glasgow was the largest constituency & they voted YES, but populace is said to be younger and not as affected by the threats of certain types of financial losses.

    Here’s a coupla tips: a) pay no attention to those magazines, and/or b) don’t bother to Q who those people are.

    I tossed out my tv ages ago. Must concur that if/when I happen to look at the grocery store scandal sheets, I’m clueless about who most of those people are. Beats me. Beats me why anyone would care to read about ‘em either.

    Because back in the day, Jefferson & Madison were celebrities just for being famous…

    shhhhh…. new conspiracy theory: everyone here is actually a congressional staffer spying on FDL. Congress went on recess & everyone ran home. Ergo…

    1 in 4 “people” say they’d like their state to secede from the USA, but if it ever came to a vote they’d all wimp out just like the Scots did.

    For those who didn’t follow it, the PTB in the UK (Westminster/the City/the Queen) put on a huge full court press over the past month or so basically attempting to SCARE Scots to death as to what would happen if they left the mothership. Naked threats, really. Then some lashings of togetherness/unity blather for good measure. And some promises (whilst crossed fingers were held behind backs) on making “improvements” for Scotland (buggers’ chance of those promises being made good on).

    That full court propaganda machine in Scotland will look like a dying RPM record in comparison to what the corporate-fascist propaganda Wurlitzer would do here in a similar situation. Believe me, our Mad Men were taking good notes from the Scotland skirmish.

    States secede? Don’t make me laugh. Never happen. Rush’ll bellow and everyone will roll over…

    Stop making sense! That’s not how it’ll be treated, I’m sure.

    And the beat down goes on, while the proles get ripped off yet again. Fantastic.

  • As far as citizens “liking” their employer provided health insurance goes… yes, maybe many citizens felt that they “liked” them bc they had no comparison to anything else. And the M$M propaganda went full court press to say that Single Payer – or systems like that in Canada & the UK – were totally awful & horrible & you’d never ever get good health care blah blah blaah… So citizens preferred to stick with what they knew.

    Of course, many of us predicted what would happen: Employer Provided Plans would be/are crappified by Obamacare, plus many private companies will simply cease offering health care ins and direct their wage slaves workers to buy their own ins on the exchanges.

    Single Payer would have made the most sense (or Medicare for all), but perish the thought of “socialized medicine.” Some poor person just might get something for nothing. Rather have some rich creep CEO of BigIns rip us all off. Go figure.

  • Yes, Ins Companies will provide the lowest possible level of health care – with the highest cost to the consumer – as possible, and “thanks” to Obamacare, all of these highly touted/praised Employer Plans will continue to get worse (be more expensive), not better.

  • Well it certainly hasn’t made my employer offered health insurance any more affordable. Premiums continue to rise, plus deductibles are higher. And “things” that fall into the Deductible category – many of them very standard procedures – are increasing. IOW, stuff that was considered part of the coverage just a year or so ago now is considered part of the deductible.

    So: no gain for me, although I didn’t have the pain with an arcane and difficult sign-up process.

    I agree with you, and I also feel angry and frustrated about LOTE and/or people who are even worse and continue to see “their” legacy party as “really good” or whatever.

    Definition of Insanity: doing the same thing over & over and expecting a different result/outcome.

    Agree. It’s not just about old people who are poor. It’s across all age groups. I was just pointing out one published story about the elderly poor.

    Your story about your young neighbor is another one. It’s good to share such stories, as it’s my observation that MANY citizens are willfully ignoring these real-life situations in an effort to continue pretending that nothing’s really wrong with the system, esp if they have not (yet) been personally affected. Easier to ignore & be in denial than to have confront what’s going on and perhaps have to do something other than blame the victims.

    It is men AND women in their 60s to 80s working long hard hours in very physically demanding jobs. does the govt ignore them? Sure does. Or via their emissaries, such as Petersen, excoriates them for being responsible for making themselves poor.

  • agree. Warren talks a good talk, esp about financial issues, but she is a known War Hawk and supports Israel. That’s all I need to know.

  • Thanks. Great ideas. Worth investigating.

  • Vote 3rd Party. There truly ARE other choices. By pushing for what is misleadingly called “Third” party candidates, at least some different viewpoints and ideas can get out into the conversation. Voting for either branch of the UniParty insures that NO new ideas or concepts are aired.

    Happens to me sometimes, too, but without rhyme or reason. Not sure why this happens. Having some issues with FDL today. Have to keep logging out.
