How much are these women worth to you? How much should one get paid to wear a skimpy costume, yell chants and prance around? Do we need to get the law involved in this?
California assemblywoman Lorena Gonzalez thinks so. She introduced a bill in California that, if it becomes law, will force the NFL to treat its California cheerleaders as employees and pay them at least minimum wage.
Isn’t the minimum wage $0?
Aren’t we all big boys and girls here? Why must the State be involved in every minutiae of our lives? I guess because someone wasn’t a big girl and sued the NFL for not paying her enough money for looking pretty and shaking what her momma gave her; so, here comes Lorena Gonzalez to the rescue!
According to Gonzalez, the NFL is just a bunch of wife-beating, male chauvinist pigs who don’t even pay their female sex-objects minimum wage, and the omnipotent, benevolent, god-on-earth/Government needs to do something about it.
I wonder why she cares so much?
How much is cheerleading worth? If you go to football games, and you pay $150, $300, $500, even $2000 for each ticket; are you paying that money to see professional football players or cheerleaders?
It’s a pretty basic concept in business that a person earns what she is worth. Maybe a cheerleader is worth more than less than minimum wage, but until recently the NFL was just a poor little non-profit charity organization and probably couldn’t afford to pay the cheerleaders much.
We get paid what we’re worth, and if you don’t feel like you are; you are free to ask for a raise. If you don’t get it; you are free to quit and work somewhere else for people who will appreciate your skills, experience and talent and will compensate you better. This is a free country. I have all the licenses and permits to prove it. A woman could even start her own business, exploit her customers and employees and keep all the money to herself.
What kind of person makes an agreement with someone then sues because she doesn’t like the agreement that she made?
No one forces anyone to be a cheerleader. Every one of them asked someone else for the job. That person told her the job duties and how much she would be paid. She agreed to it, they shook hands and she became a cheerleader. The San-Diego Union Tribune says some teams classify them as volunteers. Volunteers get paid less than minimum wage. Would it be right to volunteer to work at the homeless shelter then after finding out that some actual hard work is involved, sue them for not paying you enough? My supposition would be that these women have jobs that pay the bills and cheerlead for a hobby. I would posit that these women have husbands who make enough money for her to devote the time and energy needed to be a cheerleader without becoming destitute.
You don’t sue for not being paid enough to cheerlead. You don’t write a law to mandate minimum pay for cheerleading. No one can eat, drive, wear or take shelter in cheerleading. If I get sick or injured; cheerleading will not heal me. I’ve never even seen or heard of the cheerleading squad causing a game to be won or lost. Cheerleading is not worth much. If one wants to do it; one must pay for it.
Priorities are really out of whack. Too much care is given to panty-flashing women and ball-chasing men. Our Government is charging foreigners with corruption. They say some people in FIFA are corrupt for taking bribes. If you want FIFA to advertise the World Cup on your media outlet; bribe money helps them in their decision to pick you over someone else.
I’m totally shocked and outraged! I just can’t believe that you would have to actually pay someone to use their extremely valuable property so you can make money from it too, and that is corrupt. What’s next; sue water for getting people wet, indict dogs for barking?
Show me one family put out on the streets, one starving child, one entrepreneur who lost his business because of FIFA corruption or cheerleaders not getting paid enough. Show me one veteran on a wait/death list, one family whose health insurance rates have skyrocketed, one child, elderly or disabled person severely beaten or killed by cops because of FIFA corruption or cheerleaders not getting paid enough, show me one dead body, and maybe then I’ll care.
A friend of mine handed another friend an envelope last night. He told her he mailed it to a mutual acquaintance of theirs, but he got the address wrong and it came back to him. “Since you see her all the time; would you deliver it?”, he asked.
I had to tell them that no, she can’t deliver it because it is illegal for normal people to deliver mail. That can only be done by the United States Postal Service. Private Express Statutes give the Government a monopoly on mail delivery services.
The USPS doesn’t operate like a for-profit business. It loses billions of dollars. It constantly raises its rates, but still loses money. To go from red to black, the Postmaster General is considering offering check-cashing, pre-paid cards and loans. I would think it doesn’t make sense for an organization notorious for losing billions of dollars to offer financial services, but even with their illicit drug and sex-slave money-laundering services; the big banks lose billions of dollars.
The USPS prohibits us from competing against them, but wants to offer products and services already provided by private businesses. The USPS and the big banks fail and both get bailed out by We the People. Well… you may offer private mail delivery services, but only if the USPS gets it vigorish. That means you’d have to charge more than they would for the same service. I’m sure there are a few people out there who have an idea of how to do what the USPS does cheaper and more efficiently, but if they were required to charge more than the USPS; then it would negate the whole point of offering an alternative and that business would likely fail. Unfortunately that business wouldn’t be eligible for taxpayer bailouts.
Lysander Spooner owned the American Letter Mail Company.
In 1844 the Government may have acknowledged that Lysander Spooner built that, but they told him he couldn’t have it. He spent all his money fighting them and closed the business.
In addition to being an entrepreneur, Lysander Spooner was an abolitionist and author. I don’t know if he called himself an Anarchist, but I can surmise from his writings that he believed that Government was illegitimate.
If my plumber gives me advice on how to fix my car, I follow that advice, and my car blows up; I would still take his advice on my plumbing issues. I wouldn’t listen to anything he has to say about fixing my computer but I would still let him adjust my water pressure or empty my septic tank.
I don’t feel that way about the Government.
If I saw my pastor doing drugs, or gambling, or stealing; I wouldn’t listen to anything he had to say about anything.
The New York Times lost all credibility with me in 2003 during the Jason Blair scandal. I know many people continued to read and believe the paper, but what happened? More scandals. It’s been discovered that one can pay to placed on the Best Sellers List. The New York Times has been caught paying crisis actors to pretend to be afflicted with Ebola. People are shocked at these recent controversies with the New York Times, but not I. They showed me what they were 11 years ago.
That’s how I feel about the Government. I think Lysander Spooner did too.
I understand that it is a logical fallacy to assume that being wrong on one thing makes one wrong on everything, but I believe I’m right in this case.
Lysander Spooner could have owned and treated like dogs as many human beings as he wanted as long as they were Black and not White. Owning men, women and children and breeding them like livestock was legal, but delivering pieces of paper with scriptures scratched onto them, enclosed inside another piece of paper was illegal.
There is a difference between unlawful and illegal. Something that is unlawful is against the law. Something that is illegal is against the codes or statutes. The law comes from God or Common Law for the unbelievers. This is the legitimate law. The law says it is wrong to steal property or murder. Codes and statutes are written by Authoritarian control-freak Statists who want to rule over us. The codes and statutes say things like: it is illegal to walk on the grass, or stores may not sell 20 ounce big gulps. Certain interests pay legislators to write codes and statutes that benefit them and suppress their competition. Codes and Statutes told Lysander Spooner it was okay for him to buy and sell slaves but not deliver mail. Codes and Statutes tell us we may murder children via abortion, but if drive away from the abortuary and change lanes without signaling; a cop will pull you over and ask if you have any drugs that the CIA imported. If you don’t allow him to search your vehicle; he will drag you out and beat you.
When the Government tells you abortion is legal; should you give it assent on any other subject?
Don’t laugh at these people. They aren’t supposed to know what the 4th of July is. These people were born long after 1913. They country they live in is much different from the country that celebrated Freedom and Independence on July 4th 100 years ago.
America is not a free country anymore unless you have paid for and obtained the proper licenses and permits for it. How can you feel free when, on the way home from celebrating Freedom, you’ll be hijacked, and strapped down to a gurney and forcibly have your precious bodily fluids extracted?
How are these American people Independent when 1/3 of them are Dependent on the govern(control)ment(mind)?
Detroit is a city surrounded by fresh water. 45,000 people there can not or will not pay their water bills. They will not go to any of the many nearby lakes to free water. They will not dig wells in their backyards. They will not build cisterns or use barrels to collect free rainwater. They believe that hot and cold indoor plumbing delivered free to their homes by hard-working people is a human right, and they want the UN to come here and make it happen.
We seem to be unable or unwilling to secure our borders. Instead of sending back the hordes of illegal aliens who are showing up at our southern border; they are being warehoused and abused. This is a situation that will give the UN another excuse to operate here and claim authority.
How ironic that we celebrate our Independence from the country that still rules over us.
1. They are still right next door.
We failed to take Canada during the war,
and the delegation sent to Paris to negotiate the treaty attempted to cede all of Quebec, and conquered only Ohio.
We failed to conquer Canada during the War of 1812 also.
2.The Treaty of Paris granted England perpetual access to the Mississippi River.
The navigation of the river Mississippi, from its source to the ocean, shall forever remain free and open to the subjects of Great Britain… – The Paris Peace Treaty of 1783
3. We’re paying them.
King George managed to negotiate restitution. We fought for a good and just cause. England owed us for her transgressions. We won because we were right and they were wrong.
It is agreed that creditors on either side shall meet with no lawful impediment to the recovery of the full value in sterling money of all bona fide debts heretofore contracted.
It is agreed that Congress shall earnestly recommend it to the legislatures of the respective states to provide for the restitution of all estates, rights, and properties, which have been confiscated belonging to real British subjects; and also of the estates, rights, and properties of persons resident in districts in the possession on his Majesty’s arms and who have not borne arms against the said United States. And that persons of any other decription shall have free liberty to go to any part or parts of any of the thirteen United States and therein to remain twelve months unmolested in their endeavors to obtain the restitution of such of their estates, rights, and properties as may have been confiscated; and that Congress shall also earnestly recommend to the several states a reconsideration and revision of all acts or laws regarding the premises, so as to render the said laws or acts perfectly consistent not only with justice and equity but with that spirit of conciliation which on the return of the blessings of peace should universally prevail. And that Congress shall also earnestly recommend to the several states that the estates, rights, and properties, of such last mentioned persons shall be restored to them, they refunding to any persons who may be now in possession the bona fide price (where any has been given) which such persons may have paid on purchasing any of the said lands, rights, or properties since the confiscation.
And it is agreed that all persons who have any interest in confiscated lands, either by debts, marriage settlements, or otherwise, shall meet with no lawful impediment in the prosecution of their just rights. – The Paris Peace Treaty of 1783
If we won; why do we have to pay them?
The rich ruleth over the poor, and the borrower is servant to the lender. – Proverbs 22:7
We are still paying those debts to the London-based Rothschild family because with their system; it is nearly impossible to pay off your debt.
4. We are ruled by their royal family.
But, you were told America is democratic and we are ruled only by those we vote for – right? We don’t have royal dynasties like the Kennedy’s, Bush’s, Clintons, or Obama’s.
Is it nepotism or just a coincidence?
5.Many of our Attorneys General are beholden to the Crown.
The powers generally understood to belong to the Attorney General at common law have been summarized as follows:
1st. To prosecute all actions, necessary for the protection and defense of the property and revenues of the crown. 2d. By information, to bring certain classes of persons accused of crimes and misdemeanors to trial. [3rd.] By scire facias, to revoke and annul grants made by the crown improperly, or when forfeited by the grantee thereof. 4th. By information, to recover money or other chattels, or damages for wrongs committed on the land, or other possessions of the crown. 5th. By writ of quo warranto, to determine the right of him who claims or usurps any office, franchise or liberty, and to vacate the charter, or annul the existence of a corporation, for violations of its charter, or for omitting to exercise its corporate powers. 6th. By writ of mandamus, to compel the admission of an officer duly chosen to his office, and to compel his restoration when illegally ousted. 7th. By information in chancery, to enforce trusts, and to prevent public nuisances, and the abuse of trust powers. 8th. By proceedings in rem, to recover property to which the crown may be entitled, by forfeiture for treason, and property, for which there is no other legal owner, such as wrecks, treasure trove, &c. (3 Black. Com., 256-7, 260 to 266; id., 427 and 428; 4 id., 308, 312.) 9th. And in certain cases, by information in chancery, for the protection of the rights of lunatics, and others, who are under the protection of the crown. (Mitford’s Pl., 24-30, Adams’ Equity, 301-2.)
1919-20 Ill. Att’y Gen. Op. 618, 629-30, quoting from People v. Miner, 3 Lansing (NY) 396 (1868). – History of the Office of the Illinois Attorney General
The most frequently cited list of the English common-law powers is found in an 1868 New York decision, People v. Miner, which conferred on the Attorney General certain powers, such as the ability “[t]o prosecute all actions, necessary for the protection and defence [sic] of the property and revenues of the crown.” – Constitutional Crisis in the Commonwealth: Resolving the Conflict Between Governors and Attorneys General
all licensed Bar attorneys are beholden to the crown. And your home may even be owned by the Queen.
Looks like the sun still never sets on the British Empire.
My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge: – Hosea 4:6
In Future Memoriam:
To all those who will die in the future due to their unwillingness to live free, due to their belief in the fallacy of authority, because instead of controlling their own destinies; they will wait until death for the government-controlled healthcare system to treat them.
There is much talk lately of scandals in the Veterans Health Administration. Are the people just now figuring out that the VA sucks compared to the American private health market, or is it a scandal now because we finally have documented irrefutable evidence?
The mainstream news reporting that veterans have died because of secret wait lists designed to delay treatment to save money should be a wake-up call to all the statists who love Obamacare, but I’m afraid it won’t. The sheeple should now understand what we were talking about when we warned you of death panels in Obamacare. We gave you examples of death panels in other countries but forgot to tell you they existed right here at home.
Everyone knew the VA sucked. I’ve known veterans all my life and have always heard the same typical complaints about the VA. I also always wondered why the veterans put up with it?
I wasn’t a vet, but I had been to the doctor many times. Growing up; we were with Cigna. If I got sick or hurt; my mother would call Cigna and tell them the problem. They would call back in about an hour and tell us where and when my appointment would be. I would always be in front of a doctor within 4 hours, and the problem was immediately dealt with that day; tests, x-rays, MRI’s, whatever. I haven’t met a private doctor unable or unwilling to do what I want him to do to me as long as I had the money to pay him. I tore my ACL and the doctor was ready to put me on the butcher block the next day!
In America; if you’re a man and want a doctor to turn you into a woman; you can do that. If you’re a woman and you think you’re breasts are too small; a doctor will make them bigger. If you think they’re too big; a doctor will make them smaller. In this country you can pay a doctor to make your butt bigger, nose smaller, lips fatter, thighs thinner… whatever you can think of, and if you ask for it, and show them the money; they’re ready to lie you down on the butcher block ASAP, not three to four months! But, they said there was no access to healthcare in America, and that’s why we needed the Affordable Care Act.
For years I’ve heard the veterans and their wives complain about long waits, long drives, and the doctors not listening, and not doing what they wanted, about the VA system in general, and always wondered why they didn’t go to private doctors like Danny Williams, Premiere of Newfoundland. He realized he was going to die waiting for treatment under Canada’s celebrated socialist medical system and came to the United States where he received immediate treatment for his heart condition.
Williams, 60, is an independently wealthy former lawyer and businessman who donates his premier’s salary to charity.
“Ultimately we have to be the gatekeepers of our own health,” Dunderdale (Newfoundland’s deputy premiere) said. – Huffington Post

And the po’ niggas would die – Geto Boys
Eric Holder said there will be no investigation, Obama is not firing anybody, It will be business as usual at the VA. I’m not being callous, but that makes sense. There is no scandal here. It’s just best to not take a tour of the hot dog factory because you will see them putting eyeballs, lips, butts, tails, and feet into the meat grinders.
You already know the VA sucks. Why look under the hood and witness the rationing, secret lists, and death panels?
The VA is doing what it is supposed to do.
The study of economics deals with resources and how to distribute them. Economics is needed because there is a limited supply of resources and an unlimited demand for them. There must be a system to distribute the resources and prevent them from being exhausted.
In a communist or totalitarian society; the State controls all resources, all means of production and distribution. In a democratic or free-market society; resources are privately owned. Production is done by private firms, and price controls distribution.
High demand + low supply = high price. Low demand + high supply = low price. Low prices usually increase demand which will deplete the supply and cause the price to rise.
The Veterans have been promised free healthcare for life. Healthcare is not free. Healthcare is a limited resource. The dollars needed to pay for healthcare are a limited resource. The amount of money the VA receives is decided by Congress. Congress gets the money from we the People. We don’t give congress our money to only pay for the VA so the VA’s money is limited. Let’s not forget that the VA is a federal bureaucracy, so a large percentage of its budget will go to executive salaries, luxurious executive offices, executive bonuses, and other general government waste and inefficiency. The VA offers healthcare, a limited resource, free, so the low price will increase demand which will deplete the supply and cause the price to rise. The VA is not part of the free market. There is no price to rise to suppress demand, so the resources must be controlled and distributed by some other force – people, not free-market forces. Those people are the death panels.
The rich niggas will live
The poor niggas will die
So I guess we gotta make all the poor niggas rich
Is that how it goes? – Geto Boys
Some think the solution is to give the veterans credit cards that can be used with private healthcare providers.
One: that would be like having the hot dog factory in a glass building where everyone can see the offensive ingredients being used.
If the VA doesn’t have enough money and resources to meet the demand on it, then how will they be able to pay the private doctors? When the VA doesn’t have the money to treat you; they let you down gently – “You’re appointment is four months from today in the next city 200 miles away.” You go away thinking the government still loves you and wants to do everything it can for you. The free-market one the other hand isn’t like that. The free-market is going to bluntly tell you that you don’t have enough money. Go away and come back when you can pay.
What would it be like if all the Veterans suddenly could see how the sausage was being made? Would they wonder why the recently discharged young guys had more money on their cards than the Korea and Vietnam era vets? Would they wonder why the officers had more money on their cards than the infantry grunts? Would the amounts on their cards fluctuate according to variables like, say, I don’t know, maybe according to how they vote, or religious affiliation, or their political opinions expressed on social media sites?
Two: Soon there won’t be any private healthcare market for any of us to go to. Last I heard; Obamacare pretty much destroyed that. It’s not dead today, but we’re watching it die. It will be soon enough.
So the endgame is for us all to be treated as poorly as the veterans who are treated worse than convicts and Al- Qaeda prisoners.
A Sacred Trust
Barack Obama and Joe Biden are committed to creating a 21st Century Department of Veterans’ Affairs that provides the care and benefits our nation’s veterans deserve. They will:
· Strengthen VA Care: Make the VA a leader of national health care reform so that veterans get the best care possible…
· Fully Fund VA Medical Care: Fully fund the VA so it has all the resources it needs to serve the veterans who need it, when they need it. Establish a world-class VA Planning Division to avoid future budget shortfalls.
· Fix the Benefits Bureaucracy: Hire additional claims workers, and improve training and accountability so that VA benefit decisions are rated fairly and consistently…

Some of these moving pictures are linked to very entertaining videos:
Glad you’re not in the wild? What kind of question is that? Heri Morales, do you believe the panther can only kill and eat your niece if she is in the wild?
Some people say that guns aren’t always the answer to every problem.
This is true.
You probable wouldn’t want to fire a gun, except a shotgun, in a racquetball court. Not only would it cause a racket, but it would be very easy to shoot yourself accidentally.
Sometimes guns are just too loud. In the action movies; sometimes the hero has to use a knife or break the bad guys’ necks instead of shooting one and alerting the others to his presence.
I wish I saw this video before I crossed a snake today. I didn’t want to shoot at the ground. I needed a long knife to cut it with. The snake was small, but it’s still a snake. I didn’t want to get close to it with my pocketknife so I decided to let it go and grow big enough to at least make a good belt.
…The right to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed. – U.S. Constitution, 2nd amendment
verb (used with object), bore or ( Archaic ) bare; borne or born; bear·ing.
1. to hold up; support: to bear the weight of the roof.
3. to bring forth (young); give birth to: to bear a child.
4. to produce by natural growth: a tree that bears fruit.
5. a large wild beast that will eat you alive. – Dictionary.com
You’re not safe in the city. Wild animals are moving into cities because the cities are growing and there is plenty of food for them there.
Two ladies fought a rabid beaver for twenty minutes in a Washington D.C. suburb. Sometimes even the cute woodland critters need killin’ too.
It is only natural to not want to allow a wild beast to kill and possibly eat you. Our ancestors were able to produce us because they developed and use gun and knife technology to conquer and rule over the animals of this planet.
People have told me that it is illegal in certain places to keep and bear guns and swords.
We also have people who want to conquer and rule over us.
I say do what you need to do, whether it be gun, knife, kung-fu, or whatever, to protect yourself from the four-legged and two-legged animals in the world that seek to harm you.

Dear State of ConnecticutoutthesecondamendmentfromtheConstitution,
I am returning your letter because your ban of guns and arms registry violates my Human/Civil Rights and the 2nd Amendment of the U.S. Constitution.
As a result, you have the following options of what to do with your letter:
1. Render it inoperable by burning it in a metal trash can.
2. Forward it to some random slave who lives in a communist country.
3. You may make arrangements for me to come over, crumple the letter, and shove it up your arse.
You have the following options for dealing with my weapons and magazines:
1. Don’t worry about them unless you plan on turning Connecticut or the United States into a communist, tyrannical, totalitarian state.
2. You may make arrangements for me to come over and shove the barrel of my gun up your arse.
