      He’d probably need over $200 billion once you factor in the cost of the teams, stadiums, and operating cost. Even $200 billion might not be enough, maybe upwards of $300 to $400 billion.

        Wow, I didn’t realize Puff have that kind of money?

          He doesn’t, you have to be a billionaire just to own a football team, that’s not including the stadium which will cost you on average of one billion dollars. I’m not saying that he doesn’t have a billion dollars but according to Forbes magazine he doesn’t have a billion dollars. But he probably has more than that asshole.

            I’m surprised he has more money than Jay-Z, according to what I was reading he has more money than Jay-Z. But Jay-Z does say on his 4:44 album that he’s a billionaire. On one of his tracks from 4:44 he alludes to the fact that he and Beyoncé both are billionaires.

                Forbes magazine has an annual list of the worlds riches people. At one point in time they actually had Pablo Escobar listed as one of the worlds riches men. Fascinating that they would list someone like him in their magazine seeing as they are considered the Wall street bible or something.

    Roy Moore?

    The holy roller?

    Grifting crook like all the rest of them.

    Former Alabama judge Roy Moore, a Republican candidate for U.S. Senate, once said publicly that he did not take a “regular salary” from the small charity he founded to promote Christian values because he did not want to be a financial burden.

    But privately, Moore had arranged to receive a salary of $180,000 a year for part-time work at the Foundation for Moral Law, internal charity documents show. He collected more than $1 million as president from 2007 to 2012, compensation that far surpassed what the group disclosed in its public tax filings most of those years.

      He was OK when PBO was in office and Twitler was allowed to say whatever the fuck about him because PBO believed in Twitler’s first amendment right to say all the lies about him not being born in America so much so that PBO HAD to get special permission from the state of Hawaii to produce his LONG FORM BIRTH CERTIFICATE! I guess Twitler is having a hard time knowing how to handle the press now that He’s on top and being taken down a peg or two, or two hundred 🙂

    The Changing Politics of the South
    by Nancy LeTourneau
    October 11, 2017


    On the Republican side, five white men are running in the primary. On the other side of the aisle are two women, Stacey Abrams and Stacey Evans. A recent article in The Root by Abrams-supporter Jason Johnson has stirred up a bit of attention. It is titled, “Black Stacy vs White Stacey: A Lesson in Race Politics From Georgia.” Johnson is not the first person to describe politics in the South like this:


    Here is how he describes the two candidates:

    In a fair world, Stacey Abrams would be the Georgia Democratic Party’s political fantasy. She’s a 43-year-old single black woman, Spelman grad, lawyer and mystery-novel writer and was Democratic minority leader since 2010 before stepping down this year to run for governor…

    Many establishment Democrats (meaning white folks) in Georgia don’t think a single black woman can win a statewide election, even though white Democrats haven’t fared much better since 2002. Georgia newspapers are filled with words like “uneasy” and “unsure” regarding Abrams’ “appeal,” which is just code for “We want black votes but we don’t support black candidates.” Many of them have thrown their weight behind Stacey Evans, a white, married 39-year-old state representative and lawyer from Smyrna, Ga.

      Maybe it is time for Black voters and other POC to pull a “day of absence” in the next 2 election cycles so that democrats will see how they fare without them. Let white democrats see what they can do with their dream of white blue collar voters gathering beneath their standard. let the Bernie bros have their so-called revolution and let’s see what happened. Black and Brown folks suffer no matter who is in the state house or the white house, so maybe we should dis-enfranchise ourselves for a while. Get off the Democratic plantation and rebuild our communities, Black wealth, Black ownership and Black schools. Form townships, our own banking system and leadership like Black people did in the years after Emancipation. Integration has not lived up to the dream that our parents had for us. As Ava Duvernay said, we need to stop knocking on doors and create our own. We have the talent and the economic strength to do this. When folks realize that you neither need or want them, they come running to your door. It is time for us to separate on our own terms.

    The Discussion About Trump’s Unfitness For Office Has Shifted
    by Nancy LeTourneau
    October 12, 2017

    I’ve already labelled myself as a congenital optimist, so you can put what I’m about to write in that context. But I’m sensing a change in the tone of the discussion about the presidency of Donald Trump. And yes, I think it is mostly related to the recent comments by Sen. Bob Corker. I’ll give a hat tip on that one to Greg Dworkin, who recently highlighted a theory about indexing.

    “Indexing” is a theory of news content and press-state relations first formulated as the “indexing hypothesis.” At its core, the indexing hypothesis predicts that news content on political and public policy issues will generally follow the parameters of elite debate: when political elites (such as the White House and congressional leaders) are in general agreement on an issue, news coverage of that issue will tend to reflect that consensus; when political elites disagree, news coverage will fall more or less within the contours of their disagreement.

      Funny how Twitler was going around for years and still today probably believes that President Barack Obama was not born in the USA. That he found evidence in Hi showing that PBO was not born there. The media lapped it up, reported it every day, Twitler’s every word incessantly so much that PBO HAD to produce his long form birth certificate which launched Twitler’s rise to become President solely on his HATE of PBO. Then months before he was elected Twitler said yes, President Obama was born in the USA. So for 2 years he was lying to the public but NOW the media is just supposed to report things that are TRUE! How does that work? If the media DID IT’S JOB, reporting ONLY WHAT IS TRUE, Twitler would NEVER be President! WORKS FOR ME!

      Read this.


      Populists on the left, like their conservative counterparts, appeal to bitter sentiments of fear and resentment to rouse and consolidate public support. The self-described “democratic socialist” Senator Bernie Sanders, who earned the votes of millions of Americans in the 2016 Democratic presidential primaries, is the left’s leading example of this phenomenon.

      His campaign promise to make “public colleges and universities tuition free” was superficially appealing, but oversimplified a critical policy challenge with a massive, generic government response. While popular, this solution was based on scant funding plans and provided little justification for diverting resources away from the poor to equally benefit the affluent.

      But populists like Sanders know that carefully designed policy prescriptions don’t attract the support of frustrated voters as quickly as instant-gratification proposals. Nor do they generate the same useful anger as Sander’s (and Trump’s) attacks on “liberal elites.”

      Populist leaders of both parties are purveyors of snake oil, their remedies and rhetoric as substantively deficient as their espoused commitment to liberty, equality and truth. If politicians’ proposals seem too good to be true, overly simplistic and aimed at exploiting our fears or frustrations, they probably are.

      As much a fraud as the nitwit in the WH….
