Eric Shinseki, The Man Who Trusted Too Much

Eric Shinseki, The Man Who Trusted Too Much

Commented May 30, 2014 at 12:55:29 in Politics

“Another shameful episode for our country. While the GOP loves to send our young men and women to war most care very little for the suffering it causes. They value the huge profits to be made by private contractors who in turn support them and their election and reelection bids. Shinseki seems to be a truly caring man who was either kept in the dark by advisors or outright lied too.”

“Such a sad state of affairs. While the majority of Americans want there to be no difference in wages for any of us it's still happening...and the GOP likes it that way. To vote for Wall St after the 2008 debacle is truly disheartening. It's time Americans woke up to reality. The research is readily available online. Even the poorest among us have access in public libraries. Are so many so apathetic? Do they really not care what happens to their grandchildren? I guess so.”

“"While the majority of Americans want there to be no difference in wages for any of us it's still happening" ... Who are you talking to??? I want to be paid for my performance and expect all to earn their keep ... Income equality is nothing more than a step towards a pathetic and non-productive socialist society. Tell me where socialism has worked over time??? And no I don't want you to get the same amount of money sitting on the front porch while I go to work.”

“President Obama came into the game with every card stacked against him. What he has been able to achieve with the just say "NO" congress is astounding! The majority of Americans duly elected President Obama twice. No Supreme Court ruling needed. The US economy has been a war economy for far too long. Who profits? The 1%. While we have and need a strong military force, we need to stop paying the profiteers of war and start paying more attention to those sent to war for profit.”

“What has Obama done during his time as president that you would consider his crown jewel? He's done so great with all the cards stacked against him, so years down the road what will he be remembered for?”

“Obama's Whitehouse staff has an even higher pay gap for his women to men than Bush did.

So voting Democrats changes nothing and in many cases is worse for women than supporting Conservatives.”

Donald Sterling Agrees To Give Up Control Of Clippers, Let Wife Negotiate Team Sale: REPORTS

Commented May 23, 2014 at 15:38:33 in Sports

“This is a complex situation. While I abhor what I heard from Sterling on the tape the question is do his private words condone losing ownership of a company he bought? Our country is moving in the correct ( I don't like the word right) direction. Equal rights for all. Doesn't matter the color of your skin, gender or sexual preference. The NBA has mostly white ownership of players of color. Do they value their players status as equal or do they think they're superior while benefitting financially? Tough questions.
Does the NBA make this owner sell while most of the owners truly believe what he expressed in private? Are they just trying to be politically appropriate?
While no American should be forced to sell an investment due to their beliefs, some beliefs are so outdated and racially or religiously biased their beliefs are outrageous. I don't have the answer, but I believe no one who profits from what they don't truly accept should have to pay consequences for their words...private or public.”

“People lose their franchise rights everyday, why is this such a big deal? There was a man here in LA and he owned 3 McDonald's restaurants, he kept charging customers for extra Ketchup packs, he got finned and was told to stop because it was against the McDonald Rules of Conduct. The owner kept doing and they forced him to forfeit all three of his stores and he sold them at a lost. .That's what happens when you own a franchise.”

“Sterling has a long history of ignorance, the only reason the NBA is going hard on him is that this is the first time its going to cost the NBA money.”

“Yes, pretty much anything the USA has touched has turned into something we wish it didn't. Astounding since we started out as a little group of colonies unhappy with taxation without representation. What made us different I often wonder. We had very little and while the French helped us it was our frame of mind that made the difference I think. We weren't giving up the very little we had. I also have to think the native Americans have a very different point of view than most of us do.”

The LGBT community along with any one other than caucasion males are also inferior according to them. Why people continue to vote against their own best interest is astounding to me!”
