The leftist women's World Cup team has made a lot of noise about wanting more pay, or pay that's equal to the men's teams, yet already the economics of the picture shows that they're actually overpaid. This isn't something unfixable - more ticket sales, more team memorabilia revenue, more television watchers, more public interest would correct that easily, and it's clear that star players such as Megan Rapinoe know it. Here's her statement to MSNBC's Rachel Maddow, posted on Twitter:

I do not watch any sporting event unless humility, gratitude, and true sports(wo)manship are on display. I choose not to watch or support the antics of spoiled, narcissistic brats.

For an ideology that prides itself on “fairness”, the left refuses to accept the fact that they can’t have it both ways. You cannot flip off half of your potential marketing/fan base, and then cry foul that you don’t make enough money.

I thought it was a TEAM. Isn't there more than Rapinoe on the team. Why are no other players interviewed. Alex Morgan is the Co-captain. She is a lot better to look at even if she disparages the USA.

These professional sports players think they are some kind of heroes. Perhaps the players listen too much to the sports announcers who make a living tagging along behind the players, yap-yap-yapping all the while. The players forget that they are not heroes, they are performance cast members of an entertainment company. The players forget that they must please and entertain the crowd if they want the crowd to give them their money. If the players displeases the audience, the paying customers, then the players have failed to entertain them...... and the audience leaves...... and takes their money with them. As for me, the only way I could care less about Association Football ("soccer"), more specifically women's soccer, and this vulgar 'Rap-A-Hoe' broad in particular, is if I made a conscious effort to ignore them..... but that's too much work.

The problem with these women, and sports in general, is the celebrity syndrome. It's the same thing that happened to Hollywood. They begin to believe all the hype about themselves, pushed by a media that wants to sell copy, and forget that they are not better people than anyone else. They believe that their manufactured celebrity status entitles them to insult people with repercussions. They think we care enough about their personal animosities to overlook the insults. When we don't, we become the ones in the wrong. Suddenly, because of their celebrity syndrome, we become the better people!

Plan B: Impeach Trump For

Posted by PageTurner 7/12/2019 5:55:00 AM Post Reply
What if House Democrats drew up articles of impeachment charging President Trump not with obstruction of justice but with obstruction of those entering America illegally? The ructions for months now over the continuous unauthorized entry of multitudes across the southern border, their often-dubious appeals for political asylum, and the shameful exploitation of children by those seeking to get into the country any way they can are being used to the full against Trump. If Democrats can’t convince the country that he’s Nixon, maybe they can convince the country he’s the witch from “Hansel and Gretel,” catching little children he can fatten up, roast in the oven, and consume.

The couple married on July 4th in Kalamazoo, surrounded by friends and family donned in "Make America Great Again" hats. “It looked like America threw up all over my wedding and I’m not sorry," bride Audra Johnson told WXMI.

The plan to deport about one million illegal aliens announced by Acting United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) Director Ken Cuccinelli is not a matter of discretion. Cuccinelli is just following the law, and already issued court orders. Those subject to deportation under the plan have already had their cases adjudicated in the United States, with immigration judges ruling they have lost their cases, and ordering them deported. Cuccinelli is just the first federal official, besides President Trump, brave enough to follow and implement the law. That is what President Trump pledged to do

House Democrats, resistant to reason, continue to press for a minimum-wage hike even though a government report says it could cost as many as 3.7 million jobs. The party of the “working man” seems to have no problem throwing low-wage workers out on the streets. The bill, which is headed to a floor vote, would increase the federal minimum wage from $7.25 an hour to $15 an hour over five years. The Congressional Budget Office says it could kill as many as 3.7 million jobs, with a median estimate of 1.3 million, should it become law. (To be fair, the low estimate is roughly zero job losses,

With its monopoly on the legitimate use of force, government gets its way. Just as gangsters do – with the ever-present knowledge that non-compliance will be met by people ready to use force if necessary. The purported difference between governments and gangsters is that the former are supposed to be subject to the rule of law and operating “in the public interest,” while the latter are only out to enrich themselves. But in California’s state government, one party control and the lack of media scrutiny and public attention has led to the capture of control over tax revenues by so-called “public servants.”

The headline out of the recent Washington Post/ABC News poll was that President Trump’s approval ratings had hit an all-time high. Trump and his supporters were happy about that. But the real news was buried in the poll and went largely overlooked by the press. And it should terrify everyone. The poll found that Trump’s approval rating climbed five points to 44%, his best showing ever in that poll. Most polls have, in fact, shown Trump’s approval edging up. The Real Clear Politics average has him at 44.6%. It was below 43% a month ago. Gallup’s tracking poll has Trump within a few points of where President Obama was

Here's the New York Post: First lady Melania Trump warned her husband that Dr. Christine Blasey Ford was not being truthful when she accused Justice Brett Kavanaugh of sexually assaulting her in high school, according to a new book. "You know that woman is lying, right?" Melania told the president, in an episode recounted in Justice on Trial: The Kavanaugh Confirmation and the Future of the Supreme Court, the New York Post reported.

Venezuela is in a stalemate. Ruled as a colony by its Cuban masters with a little puppet leader in the persona of Nicolás Maduro, it's as bad an economic shambles as Cuba is, and as with Cuba, millions of its people are fleeing. The United Nations declared it a death-squad regime, with 7,000 documented killings of dissidents. There's a legitimate leader in the legislative declaration of Juan Guaidó as president, but the man is powerless without an army to command and sadly fading to irrelevance. But there's not nothing going on. Francisco Toro at the Washington Post has a powerful warning that the Venezuelan vacuum

I suppose I should be thrilled that the U.S. Women's soccer team won its second world title but I confess to rooting for all their opponents during the games. I don't particularly care for soccer anyway but it was the purple-haired star player Megan Rapinoe who turned me off by spouting her disdain for any White House visit before she was even asked. Did she do that for publicity or was her Trump derangement too deeply entrenched? Stomping on the American flag even accidentally during the World Cup celebration was more proof of her unworthiness to represent our great country.

Long before Jeffrey Epstein pleaded guilty to prostitution charges in Florida more than a decade ago, his fellow Palm Beach resident and hedge-fund manager Douglas Kass was intrigued by the local gossip about his neighbor. “I’m hearing about the parties, hearing about a guy who’s throwing money around,” says Kass, president of Seabreeze Partners Management. While stories about young girls swarming Epstein’s waterfront mansion and the sex parties he hosted for the rich and powerful were the talk of the town, Kass was more focused on how this obscure person, rumored to be managing billions of dollars, had become so wealthy without much of a track record. Kass was well-connected

The U.S. National Women’s National Team (USWNT) used paper from their gender discrimination lawsuit as confetti during their victory parade in New York on Wednesday. At one point, goalkeeper Ashlyn Harris said “pay us bitch” as her teammate Allie Long chewed on a piece of the confetti. (Snip) pay gap is far from just “gender bias,” the reason there is a pay gap between the men and the women is that the men bring in many more fans, and millions of dollars more in revenue than the women’s soccer. The pay gap is about economics, not gender bias.

Rep.

Joe Crowley (D-NY), a member of the party’s leadership team under Pelosi, in last year’s primary race. The latest spat began on Saturday, when columnist Maureen Dowd of the New York Times reported that Pelosi had disparaged AOC and her allies on the left (original links):

The political misfits known as NeverTrumpers are begging for allies ahead of next year’s presidential election—and, as usual, they aren’t looking to the Right. This collection of failed magazine editors, Iraq War propagandists, washed-up columnists, Russian collusion pimps, and losing campaign consultants have dogged Donald Trump and his supporters for three years. While some anti-Trump “conservatives” who contributed to National Review’s infamous “Against Trump” issue in early 2016 have become supporters of the president, others cannot let go—but their obstinance is less about principle and more about grift: Acting as the useful conservative idiot for the Washington Post or MSNBC
