Megs, put a sock in it

Original Article

Posted By: Magnante, 6/28/2019 4:58:41 AM

Megan Rapinoe, star forward for the women’s U.S. national soccer team, seems to hate the world. She goes around with a scowl permanently etched into her weathered face. Though an outstanding soccer player, Megs has it in her head that she’s getting cheated, and that the cheater is Donald Trump. So she refused to go to the White House if the team wins the women’s World Cup. Trump then extended an invitation to the team whether they win or lose and of course Megan took it with ill grace. The girl has no graces, only grimaces.

Perpetually angry seems to be a common thing nowadays. It is made far worse by watching the news and believing what one sees there. I have backed WAY off on news and guess what? Life is good. I am reasonably healthy, reasonably happy, I have tons of love in my life and even a rudimentary purpose. For news I come here and read maybe one of ten stories, and a couple other sites. No more 24/7 news feed. This guy should do the same. He looks really angry.

Being on the U.S. National Soccer team is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity and not very many people achieve something like that so you would think she would be smiling rather than a scowl.

While I am not a fan of this Megan lady this team would beat any high school soccer team anytime.They do produce as equal money as the men’s team. They just showed the stats the other day. The angry dude should get his facts straight.

This Rapinoe fellow should be allowed to represent his beliefs except when representing the USA. As a member of the USA squad he has refused to represent the USA and only represents himself and therefore should be terminated.

Hatred for Trump has become a form of modern art. All the 'smart people' 'know' that appreciating modern art is a sign of intellectual superiority, so nobody is willing to see through the ruse because they lose status in so doing. So, a culture builds up around it and anyone with a canvas and a paint brush can be an 'artist' as long as their 'art' is presented as 'art' with all the accoutrements and accolades just waiting to happen. And... funny how it seems, the left seems to be a bigger fan of modern art and deconstructive design more than the right. Hatred for Trump is the same thing. I believe most hate Trump because if they do NOT, what they have invested socially and emotionally would be lost, just like millions on a canvas that someone spilled paint on.

Expecting equal pay for "equal" work is a typical leftist attitude. Except, when you look at "equal" it's not really so equal. Just because you both play soccer doesn't mean there is equality between men and women. There is not even equality between men. By Megan's calculation, and the Left's, all soccer players should be paid the same. They are all playing soccer, right? Of course the problem is that top players lose the incentive to work as hard as they have to, to BECOME the outstanding players they can be. If I am going to be paid the same, no matter the effort I make or ability I develop, why bother. In fact, why play soccer professionally at all, besides for the fun of it, if I know there are other jobs that pay me better than the leveled pay for all soccer players. The stupidity of the women's lib movement is that women are NOT going to be equal to men in all things. They will be comparatively worse in some things, better in others, and equal in some. That is, to Megan's anger, because men and women are different and have different strengths. That is even true in comparing different women and different men. We are NOT all the same. That is true even if it ticks you off.

Like the kneelers in the NFL this nitwit has damaged the brand, the team and the love of the sport. I just wonder how the rest of the team feels at having this piece of garbage steal the limelight from their accomplishment. Too bad for them, that like the NFL they will suffer while she gets a book deal or maybe a job with MSNBC or CNN. I think the coaches would be wise to toss these people no matter what their talent level is, it is not worth paying the price of damage to the overall image and love of the game. There is always someone out there who can be better than she is and will appreciate the country who gave her the opportunity to succeed.

I disagree with the author trying to put women athletes on the same level as men as far as performance. Of course they are not equal. But why compare them? These women are exceptional in what they do. Because they love to compete in a sport and excel at, then some think they must be gay? Some may be, others not. These women don't make the same amount of money as men because the don't bring in the viewers and that spells dollars. I just find it so interesting that some men are so afraid to acknowledge that women are good at something men have always been known for. So what, recognize them for the achievement on their own level, why compare it to men. Will they be stronger or faster? No. But there are some incredible women athletes and to not recognize that indicates a prejudice. There are loud mouth anti-everything jerks in every walk of life. Ignore this little twit, but don't take away the achievements of all women athletes because of her.

Don't let your anger at Rapinoe's personal displays unfairly cloud your judgment and support for the rest of this team. Just watch how proudly the rest of them sing our national anthem . I say this as the father of two former US National Team members (in other sports). Having been among them and their teammates, it's thrilling to see not just their incredible dedication and hard work but also their inspiring patriotism and pride in wearing the "USA" uniform. Rapinoe is the sad exception, not the rule. Go USA!
