CNN now reporting it’s 5 million in tax evasion and various other felonies which would add up to a 25 year prison term.It seems to be that his cooperation will get him 5 years probation,pay 1 mil restitution, and no prison time.

Jesus Fucking Christ, isn’t it great to be a rich white criminal.

I could live the rest of my life on 5 mil, plus insure all my nephews and nieces have college tuition and a hefty amount, if not all, of their first mortgage.

Why the fuck does the National Anthem have to be associated with sports events at all? It’s stupid!

Probably a thread on this somewhere.

The association between the Star Spangled Banner and sporting events goes back to 1918, though Francis Scott Key’s nigh un-singable magnum opus wouldn’t be made the official national anthem until 1931. It became a pregame fixture in MLB and the NFL during WWII. The NFL mandated that players observe the anthem in 2009 for reasons I don’t understand.

This useful timeline from Axios includes a tidbit about a report by John Mcain and Jeff Flake which states that between 2012 and 2015, the DoD spent $7M on “paid patriotism” displays before sporting events.

The Washington Post has a piece on the anthem and disobedience related to it:

I believe they mislabeled that, as it should be “the worst”.

White supremacy, imperialism, capitalism.

It’s all connected, and each part reinforces the others.

It was certainly mentioned here:

Yup, here it is for those interested:
