The NCAA is a corporation valued at about $20b, the President of the NCAA makes about $3m a year. The athlete students (slaves) who generate all the revenue for the NCAA make $0 a year. So the NCAA send their products, broke young kids, to close a billion dollar deal in China.
Governor Mike Pence and Indiana State Republican lawmakers changed their “Religious Rights” law due to the blowback it received, the potential loss of revenue from major corporations like Apple and the NCAA finals scheduled for this weekend pulling out. Governor Mike Pence, Republican lawmakers and the people of Indiana they represent did not change their discriminatory religious beliefs against the LGBT community. In this case the God they trust the All Too Mighty Dollar won.
Senator Todd Akin of Missouri voiced his beliefs about the reproductive process of women and was voted out of office. Governor Mike Pence and the Republican lawmakers of Indiana passed a discriminatory law against a significant part of the American population and remain in office with high approvals from the people of Indiana they represent for upholding God’s law. So as billions of Christians celebrate Easter this weekend they should also remember the millions of people killed every year in the name of God by governments all over the world. @OgbeniAyotunde
There is a class warfare going on in America. Republican lawmakers cut food stamps to needy children ( 50% of food stamp recipients in America today are children ). They are sponsoring a bill that mandates the school superintendent overseer of a school children work program. You know making hungry students work for their food. This is by no means a new phenomenon in America you see student athletes have slaved for decades for Corporate America with the NCAA as the overseer.
Meanwhile Republican lawmakers are fighting tooth and nail to preserve tax breaks and wealth for the 1% fat cats and 2% corporations that control American wealth. You see not much has changed in 400 years, America was built on the backs of African slave labor and for the past couple of decades on slave Chinese, Vietnamese, Bangladeshi, Thai or Mexicano labor take your pick, As the slave labor market is busted in Asia the American predatory lawmakers turn on American children to feed the Beast.
