NFL and Government vs. People
NFL got a flag on their play to build a war chest with broadcast contracts in another example of self-serving corporate behavior at the expense of the people who actually do the work. A federal judge ruled the NFL acted illegally, securing loot to tide them over if the players were locked out. State and federal government is doing the same stuff, giving tax cuts, escape hatches and subsidies to corporations and the fabulously well-to-do, while taking the handouts from the paychecks of workers. Where's the judge who will stop governors and Congress from doing the same? Any other gamechangers out there?
