Or fix them at all and then lie to people that you will so they vote for you like the sheep they are.

Such is life on the democratic plantation. :T

What's sad is that progressives and neoliberals, like the neocons and RINOs, have poisoned the well of their respective party to the point that people who actually want shit done properly and/or at a serviceable pace have slowly, but surely, gotten to the point of telling them to go fuck themselves like they did with the neocons and RINOs by either voting for outsiders because they have nothing left to lose () or go even further by running themselves.

An animal is the most dangerous when it's cornered and the neocons/libs, progressives and RINOs have time and time again failed to account for that, yet cry like spoiled brats and/or are hilariously dumbfounded because they can't deal with it happening with the recent upswell of people finally turning on their snake oil salesmen.

Re: Some NBA teams scrap term 'owner' over racial insensitivity

you gotta draw the line somewhere

Despite what you may have heard about so-called "smark marks" and the "IWC" some of us are actually here to help. All you have to do is ask.

It should be 100% standard across pro wrestling.

Re: Some NBA teams scrap term 'owner' over racial insensitivity

I mean... so fucking what?

This just feels like one of those things that is utterly inconsequential to fucking everything but that will only be given any prominence by the people who seem to love going out of their fucking way to whine that being 'PC' is going to doom humanity because some people are kind of iffy about the idea of a rich white dude being called the owner of a team of predominantly African American athletes.

Does them not being called the 'owner' specifically REALLY bother anyone that much? Or do people just like to find anything to piss and moan about?

Re: Some NBA teams scrap term 'owner' over racial insensitivity

After Sterling's rant against his own players based on their race, and how a shareholder of the Warriors recently treated an opposing team's player, I can see the players point of view. You have a few team shareholders treating players like absolute crap. The NBPA has clearly been alerted to some behaviour of some other teams shareholders that has caused suspicion, in addition to the 2 examples given. The NBPA isn't going public with the accusations even though 2 of them have been on public display, there's more to the story than we know.

This is pathetic and embarrassing to the NBA. These teams are folding like cheap tissue paper.
