Craig Ferguson would have been good. I wonder if Piers Morgan falling flat and it being blamed on that fact that he's a Brit instead of him being a flaming douche had anything to do with it

Either none of my SIP team noticed I was wearing two belts this morning, or they were too embarrassed for me to tell me. Many of you will not be surprised that this isn't the first time this has happened.


If those belts were Kessler, this guy wouldn't have stopped at two.
I used to be with it, but then they changed what 'it' was. Now, what I'm with isn't 'it,' and what's 'it' seems weird and scary.

No, and I'm still pissed about it. The video was on Youtube at some point but has been removed. It was the first KITH skit I ever saw.

I've hidden virtually all my cousins because of posts like this.

I read this early this morning but I can't stop thinking about it. Who thinks of Obama when this whole LA Clippers thing shook down?

I'm not saying my cousin can't have his own opinion (the failed congressman Allen West who wrote this garble can have his too), but man this is some crazy shit.

Donald Sterling ouster = Obama/BENGHAZI!!





“Upon further review, the ruling on the field (court)…” These are the words stated by referees after they’ve gone to the reply booth (monitor) in order to clarify a controversial call. Often, the reason for the review is because of a coach’s challenge. Therefore, in the same light, let us review the case of LA Clippers owner, Donald Sterling.

There can be no debate that the words of Mr. Sterling were reprehensible and disgusting. But how and why did these words come to light now, when his points of view were apparently well-known for many years?

It seems his “girlfriend,” Ms. Stiviano, decided to tape a private conversation between the two. Apparently, Ms. Stiviano had recently been sued by the estranged wife of Mr. Sterling, so there is some potential nefarious motive involved. Furthermore, the taping of a conversation without consent of the other party is illegal under California statute. There is some question as to whether he knew he was being recorded. Let’s assume for the moment he didn’t.

The national outrage against Mr. Sterling has come from an act that could be illegal and inadmissible in a court of law. Nevertheless, the court of public opinion has tried and convicted Mr. Sterling of being a jerk.

But have we come to a point in America where being a jerk is grounds for confiscation of a private property? It was Englishman John Locke who first proposed that individual rights as granted under natural law were life, liberty, and property. It was Thomas Jefferson who in the American Declaration of Independence used that paradigm to propose our unalienable rights from our Creator being life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. Sterling’s comments were repulsive, but they were stated in the privacy of his own home — at least he thought it was private.

So where do we go from here?

Have we come to the point that private conversations can be taped and released in the public domain in order to ruin the livelihood –pursuit of happiness — of private citizens? Ms. Stiviano, or whomever, knew exactly what they wanted the end result to be as they released this tape to TMZ.

Is this the “new normal?” Is this a violation of our privacy rights? Ok, so what types of conversations occur in the privacy of the NBA locker rooms, or the homes of the players? Yes, this is indeed a slippery slope as Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban asserted.

Fox News host and commentator Greg Gutfeld applauded this moment because of the consensus outrage being displayed. But I believe this outrage misplaced, or more accurately, mis-prioritized. NBA Commissioner Adam Silver said Sterling’s behavior was “dangerous to the NBA.”

Where is the cultural, public outrage over a behind closed door comment such as referring to the State of Israel as an “apartheid state?” Probably most of America doesn’t know who said it or even what “aparteid” means.

Or how about the outrage that should have come when our own president leaned over to then-Russian President Medvedev sayng, “Tell Putin that after my reelection I will have more flexibility” and of course Medvedev said, “I will tell Vladimir.” And now we know what that “flexibility” has allowed.

Aren’t those “private” chats reflective of behavior that is dangerous for the United States?

Or how about the lies and deceit of President Obama on healthcare and of course Benghazi, which we now know a video had nothing to do with.

Has our culture devolved to the point that the private statements of an NBA owner draws more outrage than the lies and deceit of the President of the United States?

Donald Sterling’s behavior is despicable, but so is that of President Barack Hussein Obama — and whose abhorrent behavior has more impact on our country?

The difference is that the media lead us along like sheep to the slaughter, turning us into reactionary, shallow thinking, low information voters along the way. We know more about Sterling than Benghazi — or the IRS scandal.

Sterling is a jerk, an unlikeable fella, but is he guilty of a crime that demands his property be confiscated? Uh, no.

We’re told however that Obama is a likable fella –regardless of the incessant lies, deceit and abject failures. What is happening to American culture and values?

I don’t like jerks, but I really don’t like jerks who are liars, do you?

I saw Allen West and was thinking Cornell West and couldn't figure out if he'd had a closed head injury or what. I'm straight on it now.

Um, yes.

The Beav's cousin, or whomever posted that, probably shouldn't look into the buying the Clippers if they feel that way.

From what I understand, the owners sign a contract at purchase which makes the teams more of a franchise deal than an ownership and they agree to abide by all of the items in the contract. There needs to be a vote by whatever the board is composed of to be able to take action, but there apparently already has been, so democracy has been served.
It would be akin to buying a McDonald's franchise and then posting signs that say "No negros allowed at counter". Ain't gonna be a franchisee for long.

I'm not defending the guy, but as I heard it, he was secretly recorded while having a discussion in his house...shit, if someone recorded the shit i say in my house, and publicized it, should I lose my job too?

the guy is an asshole...but setting this precedent opens up a can of worms....

What if Tom Gores is recorded in his house saying that homosexuality is a sin and he is against them getting married...Could he be forced to sell his team? Can someone record him soon?

If Gores implemented those beliefs on the team and prohibited gay players on the Pistons, I think there would be trouble (EDIT: Also, ha! Just processed the tail end of that line).

I believe there's a long documented history of Sterling's racism and that should play into the removal process when the owners vote. If Gores made one comment 1 year into his term as an owner, I think they'd let it slide and try and smooth it over. Hell, they let Sterling slide for more than 30 years and even within those years they tried to kick him out.

http://deadspin.com/the-nba-wanted-to-k ... 1570505417

As for the private conversation, I'd consider that it's his big mouth and it was his mistress who got him in trouble. That's just sloppy and arrogant, no one's fault but his own even if it was private (and really, if you have to share all those ignorant thoughts with some floozy you are nailing....geez). There are reports that he was aware his conversations were taped. If he knew, then he's just as bumbling as all these stories make him out to be. I think the outrage blew up to huge proportions when people finally discovered he's been acting this way and running his team with his racist philosophy for decades.

I dunno, it's fun to see the tables reversed even though this was sort of angry mob that brought him down. All these athletes are demonized for horrible behavior (some rightfully so) but these pro sports owners are mostly money hungry scumbags too, just wealthier and holding more powerful connections.
