“If you want your private life to stay private, don't voice it in a public forum. Sorry, but when you put that out there it immediately stops being private. Companies aren't interested in having controversy that will affect their bottom line, so they are keen to sever ties with controversial people, or those who may be controversial in the future. Don't post private thoughts on social media or else you are just asking for trouble as none of it is private, and someone will always find out what is said.”

“Which basically means public debate and information exchange will be progressively more and more limited. That's bad. That's my point. Anything you say in public can offend someone, thus, if you want to avoid the ax, now or in the future, you can't say anything in public. Public debate and discussion should be promoted, not discouraged through fear or intimidation from private enterprise.
*Note to current and future employer - "If you disagree with public debate and think it's bad, I was just kidding above, please do not fire me, I apologize."”
“They went to Liberty University, which was founded by Jerry Falwell, so it isn't a stretch to see that they would have similar views. It probably wasn't hard to find their views out at all, which HGTV should have done before ever signing them up.”
“People who were under the age of 8 when it happened are the voters of today. Children then would have needed an adult to explain the Clinton scandal to them, which was likely never going to happen to any kids as it would be a wildly inappropriate conversation. With the lack of knowledge about it, kids would not have cared at all, especially when only adults were talking about it.”
“Sorry, but you have to take the bad in order to get your foot in the door, its called having a work ethic. The colleges actually check out the internship positions to see if students are being taught anything. If they weren't, Stern would have had internships removed years ago. Stern has a show devoted to interns on his channel. And interns at SiriusXM do production work for the shows they are interning for, and many of the shows on the platform acknowledge this. I've listened to SiriusXM for years & intern produced pieces are always pointed out on the talk shows. The only thing suing is going to accomplish is being blackballed from radio.”
“None of the people you cite are porn stars. Their industry has no real precautions, which is why there are HIV & STD outbreaks often. The urban legend is that porn stars get tested all the time & are healthier than the average person, yet this has been proven false time & time again.”
“She was compensated in college credit. I know for a fact that SiriusXM's internships are for college credit, and are strictly for college students. They would not have hired someone for pay to do her job, it was for a learning experience & to get her foot in the door in the industry.”

“Unpaid internship receiving college credits is NOT for fetching food and running errands. It has to be a learning experience not a "gal/guy Friday" assignment. I've worked with both paid and unpaid interns and we're told specifically what the unpaid can and cannot be told to do.”
“I understand this, you should be responding to wbthacker who claimed that it is choreography. It isn't. And matches are called on the spot all the time, they don't have time to rehearse them, they only rehearse the big spots of the match. That is how the wrestling business worked until the 90s. The ring does NOT have springs like a trampoline, there is typically one spring in the ring that acts to reduce some impact on the framework, but it is FAR from a trampoline. If you have never been to an event and seen a ring get set up, there are plenty of videos showing them getting set up, and they generally have one large spring under the ring itself. Its not there for wrestlers to bounce off of, its there to lower potential damage to the ring itself, the added bonus is trying to lower the impact to the wrestlers. In the 80s they used more rigid rings, which is why the wrestlers of that era have a lot of knee problems.
All those match types you list, I have seen live. I used to go to ECW shows in the 90s, where they did all of that stuff, including Lucha. I also used to know a few wrestlers, and have seen quite a few videos over the years speaking about this stuff.”

“I've been to many live events, I have been in the ring, I have felt the canvas, I've seen it built. I said it's similar to a trampoline. On Raw or smackdown, when they just go punch for punch, they stomp on the canvas. You can see it easily move. The WWE makes no match on the fly, that's only to be done on camera. You can get a bill card for any televised show before it happens. They already have the matches set up. I have responded to Bill Thacker, it is rehearsed. It has to be, there would be more injuries if there wasn't............... To be Continued.”
“True, though they may have incentives for good performance. Personally, I wouldn't want to walk away from extra money, but they are all grown men & can make their own choices for their families.
The owner is repugnant, but at the end of the day the players may be legally forced to play for him. Its a terrible situation for them, and I surprisingly do feel bad for millionaire players in this situation.”

“This isn't the 60s, and Snoop isn't a civil rights leader fighting for a cause bigger than him. Had MLK used graphic language, he never would have been reported on in the first place as it would never have been able to air. MLK got his point across through non-violence & eloquent speeches, people today don't need to do that.”
“She didn't go to far, she made a joke about herself and tied it into the Lindsay Lohan story. Joan Rivers has always been a standup comic, and she was pretty funny here. If people are offended, they probably never heard her material anyway. I don't care for Joan Rivers tv shows, but her standup is great, with a lot of dark humor.”
“They are using the word "star" way too loosely. She makes porn movies, she isn't a star. If she were a star, people wouldn't be using google to find out who she is. I've never heard of her, and I would never watch anything with her in it as she looks like a stick figure.”

“Maybe you just don't watch enough of the right kind of porn.”
“The cattle ranchers wouldn't be united because the rest actually pay their fees for grazing on government land. Cliven Bundy is nothing but a mooch & a thief. He is the type of man who will talk badly about people on government programs, yet go & steal hundreds of thousands of dollars from the government.”

“I agree with you, he is that and more. You forgot Ignorant. However, it is not a Minority view. I would suggest that at least 45% of our Country are Raciest. Unfortunately. "Blue States and Red States"? We are supposed to be The United States? "United we stand, divided we fall."”
“Nevada is home of the mafia?! I guess all the RICO cases in NY should cease since those guys clearly weren't members of the Five Families.
The mafia was created in NYC, and expanded westward. It still exists in NYC, and probably always will. Other gangs have filled the void that deaths & arrests created, so it isn't as strong as it once was, but NYC has always been the home of the mafia.”
