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.
From Fox News:
June 28 in Washington, in the final moments of a very serious, potentially fatal game between the Obama Administration and the People of the United States, a controversial call by replacement judges awarded an unconstitutional law (Obamacare) to the Obama Administration.
After what we saw, I think that many fans all over America are sleepless. Fans are worried and disappointed with the country they love.
I don’t blame them.
They deserve better. The fans watch the congress, they follow their parties, pay their taxes, and they don’t like what they are seeing.
Regular, patriotic judges are involved in a labor dispute with the NWO and are locked out.
There have been a number of controversies surrounding officiating in all freedom and liberty matters over the years, and it becomes part of the legend of the Republic. In the USA, “2012 NDAA,” “H.R. 347,” and “The Federal Reserve Act,” are all etched in the minds of liberty fans. How long of a life Thursday’s episode will have remains to be seen. My guess is that this too shall pass.
But the fact of the matter is, it should have never happened. The league said as much Friday in their press release which stated laws offensive to the Constitution of the United States should have been called, therefore ending the game.
Why is the USA League hiring incompetent judges? Where were they adjudicating before? Small claims court? Traffic court? I heard one sat on the bench of some juvenile court where his biggest case was some kid who broke the window in front of the grocery store.
I heard one of the officials uses the rule book of a different league and probably doesn’t even know our league’s rules.
The replacement officials on the bench are doing their best, but this is not what they do, and they are overmatched by the authority of the NWO, the antiquated rule book, and lack of integrity.
But the officials are not the game. Not to diminish them, but to be fair, everyone knows who Barack Obama and Hillary Rodham are. No one in this country can name all the current Supreme Court justices.
A few days ago I read the USA citizens association letter to the Obama Administration, which stated that there is, ” a deterioration of order, safety, and integrity to the Constitution.” While it deals in much rhetoric, the element of integrity is what is most important.
The integrity of the Constitution is sacrosanct. It is the pillar of what makes the Republic legitimate. That’s why there are so many rules in place that insure that the games are honest and fair. The second that the public thinks the games are not, is the moment that the fascination that people have with the USA will end.
I also heard Alex Jones, the head of the Liberty Movement, talking in an interview about how awful things are regarding this NWO lockout. He may be right. He also has the power to do something about it.
perhaps what happened in Washington will open the eyes on each side that damage is being done to the Country we all love.
All concerned should keep one thing in the forefront of their minds: the fans deserve better. Everyone needs to take a step back, and end this self inflicted wound.

Rush Limbaugh said today that long ago he predicted football would be banned during his lifetime. Two hours later I read an article in the Washington Examiner by Thom Loverro titled, On concussions, here’s some motherly advice.
Loverro says Five times, “mama, don’t let your babies grow up to be football players.”
How can I say this politely?
America is becoming, how should I say, another word for, kitten?
Have you heard all the recent stories of balls being banned from playgrounds because they might hurt someone? How about the new ban and $1000 fine for tossing footballs and frisbees on LA County beaches? How about kids being punished for scoring too many points in sports competitions? Have you noticed the recent trends of not scoring, rating, or awarding kids because the inferior kids’ feelings could be hurt?
Why is football so important to Congress? Maxine Waters is one of the NFL’s biggest critics in this matter. She wants to repeal their anti-trust exemption. With Water’s involved; this certainly portends a bleak future for football.
Why should the Government be at all involved in sports?
King Edward III banned football (soccer) in 1349. “Football and other recreations distracted the populace from practicing archery, which was necessary for war, and after the great loss of life that had occurred during the Black Death, England needed as many archers as possible.” – Wikipedia
Religion is opiate for the masses. Sports is religion for the heathens. Religion and sports to keep the sleep-walking sheep in order.
If a football ban happens in my lifetime; I’m sure that the real reason won’t be because of concussions. Doesn’t everyone know that playing any sport is risky? Are we too incompetent to make our own decisions?
History repeats itself. The Government may not experience a shortage of archers, but if there is no football; what will all those kids do instead?
But isn’t that even more violent and dangerous? Yes it is.
Then shall they deliver you up to be afflicted, and shall kill you: and ye shall be hated of all nations for my name’s sake. – Matthew 24:9-10
Have you seen The Running Man? Who do you think will be the gladiators to torture and kill the Christians and dissidents in the future?
