    He's not wrong. Wrestlers do die early and should be taken care of after they're done, and right now they aren't.

    Agree - he came from comedy centrals Daily Show - jacked John Stewarts mannerisms and repackaged it for his HBO show ...

    Will never live this down:




    Douche indeed but this peice was legit - WWE doesnt take care of their wrestlers and classifies them as “Independent Contractors” so they dont have to pay for medical expenses / vacation / 401k..

    Its a dirty secret big corporation pull in order to fuck the employee and save themselves a shit load of money.

    Example: Fedex does the same thing, most people dont know Fedex has a Fedex Express(Air) and a Fedex Ground that deliver normal packages - majority of packages goes through Fedex Ground - well all those “Ground” delivery drivers we see all over the place are actually “independently contracted” and dont actually work for Fedex. This helps Fedex save money by not having to pay these drivers Health Insurance,Dental,Paid Leave, Retirement, 401K ect.

    John Oliver is a dip shit pushing dat Late Night Show Agenda but overall good little vid

    Oh man I could rant about this for hours. I had 1099 subs but a company not the IRS I do business with insisted they become employees. On top of putting everything in my name, workmans comp, it's the payroll taxes that are the killer.

    I couldn't make it past a minute to see what he was talking about. He is the ultimate child that has never grown up.

    Pump up that DNC baby.

    Oliver - Kimmel - Fallon - Colbert - Myers ..the late night hitmen pumping out that DNC propaganda against Trump night after night to the point nobody pays attention anymore.

    (Republicans have their Propaganda machine as well with Foxnews and other media.)

    Who writes the scripts?
    Whats the agenda?

    Why do they give a shit if Democrats win or not?

    The scripts write themselves with the dumb shit Trump says and does on a daily basis. The agenda is 'jokes about current events'. And since he can't shut his dumb f'n mouth for more than a few hours, he is constantly the biggest joke going right now.

    They are the late night puppets - the DNC pays their bills and they go out and push the hate towards Trump.

    Lol...the scripts certainly do not write themselves.
    This is local media clip but same can be said with the late show puppets.




    You may think im trying to defend Trump but that is not the case.



    Republicans / Democrats have been implementing the divide and conquer strategy for decades - Order out of Chaos ...

    They purposely stir the pot to ensure we the people the average normal citizens never come together to ever solve the real issues at hand.

    Even in the African American community there is a fraction of so called “influential” Black leaders supposedly looking out for the best interests of the African American community when in fact they are there as a barrier or a wall to hold back their brothers and sisters from ever reaching their potential or escaping the poverty and hardships they face. This fraction is called “The Boule”.

    WWE is way worse than UFC.
    The contracted performers cannot even do an interview without Vince's OK.
    They cannot do outside work (TV, films, commercials, appearances) without his OK
    They work well over 200 days a year plus travel
    They pay their own hotel and car rentals while doing a normal road tour (overseas and Mania week are different)
    The performers get 5-8% of revenue

    Until WWE has to re-classify, UFC & MMA companies are in the clear.

    there was a small movement to get WWE performers to have to join SAG about 15 years ago. but it went nowhere
    They would have health insurance from that

    Sinclair Broadcasting is behind that video clip of all the media saying the same thing. Guess who their ownership endorsed in 2016 and continue to support to this day?

    And you need to quit watching Tariq Nasheed and Breaking Brown. Boule is a reference to a fraternity.

    All true except for one key part - at least full-time WWE roster members have an actual salary. Nobody is appearing on WWE TV that might have literally only got paid 12,000 dollars total in their time there and done nothing 'wrong' to get fired.

    The exploitation of the very bottom is thus worse in the UFC (still atrocious in WWE obviously).

    They're the oldest black fraternity in America, also known as Sigma Pi Phi. Kaepernick is a member of Kappa Alpha Psi, which is a completely different fraternity altogether. You don't need to learn Greek, but you do need to at least get your news from places besides blogs and youtube videos.

    Linda McMahon being the head of the Small Business Services Administration ties into the mythology that she and her dear husband with their own hands built this little operation up through love and grit to an international media empire. Dana of course has the same mythology about the UFC. Continuing that narrative of personal sacrifice is how both justify their talent as interchangeable parts rather than actual labor.
