And that's the truth.

Stick to the point...nobody is forcing me to get cable....The sports channels are bundled into the cable package...I want the news and history etc., but why am I forced to take the sports channels with it ??... Is there a reason?? That is what I asked Hollywood, but getting an intelligent answer from him is like pulling teeth..

Yes, because that's the way the cable company has decided to package and sell their product.

Cable is not a government socialist program like - oh, say the post office which Trump wants to shut down.

All the right wing people like to have NO REGULATIONS IN PLACE to protect the consumers from greedy corporations. So, suck it up, pay for the sports channels, and stop whining.

As we've been told about things for the past two years.
Thanks from RNG

These "patriots" are the same people who drool over the framers and the constitution. These are the same loyalists who claim to know more than all the generals about our history, our culture, our laws, our court systems and our government but.....

They absolutely despise protestors--of all shapes and sizes. They hate our high school/Gen Z protestors so much that leaders of these protests have received death threats. They hate COLLEGE protestors now, labeling students as "snowflakes" and calling out universities as being "bad" for our country...all those highly educated professors spreading Commie propaganda. They are stymied by the #metoo movement and the women's marches. They were appalled at the Black Lives Matter protests, are now revolted at the NFL (and won't watch). They support a president who seems to think White Supremacists are "very fine people".
These very same flag-wavers objected to war protests & civil rights protests (although NOW they will tell you they supported them). They were LIVID when protests erupted over Reagan's firing of 12,000 air traffic controllers who went on strike and in 1982 when over a million people protested nuclear weapons.
OH THE OUTRAGE!! The March on Washington for Lesbian, Gay, and Bi Equal Rights and Liberation — April 25, 1993.

Why?

HOW did we the people become a nation? HOW? HOW DID IT EVOLVE? Did the colonists protest? Did they break laws? Smuggle goods? Taunt King George? Did they give public speeches, print/distribute propaganda, intimidate British soldiers? Did they attack guards like in the Boston Massacre?
Did the colonists boycott and attack East Indian tea distributors and throw the tea in Boston harbor? AND then--the GALL--did they form their own government and create their own nation via VIOLENCE--aka: WAR??

I simply cannot abide hypocrisy. We either support civil disobedience or we don't. We either defend protests and protestors or we don't. We either understand our first amendment rights or we don't. Why do you suppose THIS is our FIRST *FIRST* amendment?

Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.
When protests turn to destruction of private property, and looting, we all know it is only opportunism. Black lives matter was born out of ignorance, and puppet masters behind the scenes pulling the strings behind the scenes using false angst to stir up racial hatred. College kids were being used in the same way. Sodomites, and lesbians do not deserve special rights, transgender is not even a thing as they do not change gender the change cosmetically. They got marriage which is what they said they wanted, go home. To equate this to the revolution shows how out of touch you really are, though we should revolt against the high taxes we pay.

What part of what he said is wrong, black lives matter protest equals opportunity to smash windows, to get free shoes, tv's, and booze, cigarettes, and Cheetos when things erupt, show me a Tea party protest that did that.

But....why do all cable companies bundle the sports into the cable package??... In a free market system somebody would figure out that there are people who want an ala carte package and market to those people.... The only thing close to that is DISH and I believe that is satellite....This makes me think that there is some sort of government regulation behind it....

Now if I just "suck it up" as you say...then I am still subsidizing the overpaid football players, which I do not want to do.....hmmmmmmm???

So why the fuck hasn't the Republican President fixed it?

The great Republicans, protectors of the free enterprise, free markets and thecapitalist system. Piss poor failures.
