Does the government OWN a single share of NFL stock ?? Does ANY player receive even ONE DOLLAR in federal money for playing ??? What federal law says someone else CAN'T start their own football league ??


If you don't like the protests you are FREE to take your money and stay home. You are free to turn off the TV and refuse to watch the games.

But the last time I looked the NFL and it's owners were PRIVATE, FOR PROFIT, CORPORATIONS. Are you, who in another thread was proclaiming the sanctity of capitalism, saying the GOVERNMENT should sanction the NFL for allowing the protests ??

Capitalism is the only Economy that can survive, (It has peaks and Troughs but it always comes back)

Best Example Real Estate (Realestate became over priced, the market slumped) Tech Bubble Y2K everyone purchased an new computer the market dried up for about 3 years, But as people needed to upgrade again and new technology Pads and Smart phones, the Market bounced back.

Socialism fails the nation falls, and revolution or war breaks out, USSR, China was forced to change to a capitalistic system, NAZI Germany, Eastern Europe, Cuba, Venezuela
Capitalism requires constant growth. Thus, it is consuming the finite planet on which we live. It is NOT sustainable.

No it does not there periods of Boom and bust Capitalism survives.

What you have is people that don't manage there personal finances

1. Don't borrow money except to purchase a home, pay that off as soon as possible.

2. Spend less than you make save money, build an emergency fund of 3-6 months of living expenses.

3. Save for purchases

4. save for retirement.

5. once these are in place you can Give to help others like never before.

no they do not own stock

Yes the players can make millions due to the Government granting the NFL exemption from ANTI-TRUST LAWS.

If not for the anti-trust exemption for the NFL the players would be making 70 or 80 K/year (an slightly above average salary, like they did in the 60s before the anti-trust exemption)

If the government gave ford an exemption so it could force ALL OTHER CAR MAKERS out of business how much could ford set the prices for their cars and trucks.

And to follow this up, WE wouldn't exist if a group of people hadn't told the King of England to fuck himself. They had tried, repeatedly, to have their concerns addressed by the king and his government. But when they refused to listen our founding fathers were forced to act.

My point ??

THE MOST AMERICAN, an American can be, is when they TAKE A STAND !!! Even if they are WRONG AS HELL. Even if they are the ONLY one out of 330 million people. When a citizen stands up and says "I object", they are following in the footsteps of the founding fathers and every soldier that has fought in every war since the revolution.

You don't have to agree with the protesters, or the people they work for who choose to support them or not, but they ARE being "good Americans" when they place their jobs, income and security on the line for a principal.

How many of YOU would risk your current jobs for a cause you believed in ?? How many would risk a multi-million dollar pay day for that cause ??

WHAT'S YOUR PRICE OF SILENCE ????

And if you have SUCH and objection to this, WHY HAVE YOU SUPPORTED IT FOR SO MANY YEARS ???

I simply will NOT support businesses I think are doing something I disagree with. I do NOT shop at Walmart unless I have zero other options. Even then I will weigh my needs versus giving them my money.

Oh and post a link to those antitrust laws will ya ???

And Citibank got the law changed so they could merge with Travelers insurance. The result was the HOUSING MARKET CRASH !!!! We ARE a corporatocracy !!!! You can accomplish almost anything with congress IF you have sufficient cash to to pay off, oppps I mean lobby, our congress.
