And, with all the biblical quotes flying about, I have to add a little-known one, uttered by Noah’s wife – “Who the hell is going to clean up the bottom of this ark?”]]>
The UN IS a joke, my friend. It is a group of blustery old men who sit around and yell at rogue nations saying “Now don’t do that….I’m serious….stop that…” and so on and so on. But NEVER is there any action. Not to mention the “Peacemaker nations” France and Russia, that scolded the US for going in and removing one of the most evil dictators of modern history, were secretly making billions off the oil-for-food programs thanks to Saddam. So why would they want him removed???
Argh…I hate politics. All I want is a conservative democrat or a liberal republican. Or a Libertarian candidate with some politcal clout. Is that too much to ask??(In other words, YES – I am pissing in the wind)]]>
Owners in all kinds of industries make millions/billions on the backs of their employees. Those employees certainly don’ enjoy an average salary of 1.8 million.
The owners front all the money and they take all the risk.
The bottom line, no matter how much you like it or not is that the players are playing a GAME for outrageous salaries and won’t *settle* for an average of 1.3 million a year!!?!?
It is not like the owners are saying we will not pay you more than 100K.
As far as the owners causing all of this… well yeah, it is sooooo easy for the players to say “hey we will play under the current agreement”… well DUH, of course they will, their salaries will double, or triple, or quadruple in a few years. When the owners introduce any salary reducing measures, the players will reject it.]]>
