Senate Seeks to Extend Rice Suspension

Recommended Posts

If only I could tell you that I was joking.

 

 

 

Aside from a vocal band of Ravens employees and fans, most of the world thinks Ray Rice got off easy with a two-game suspension for knocking his wife unconscious.

Now, the politicians have joined the chorus.

According to the Huffington Post, a group of U.S. Senators sent a letter to NFL commisioner Roger Goodell asking for a tougher punishment.

Senators Richard Blumenthal and Chris Murphy of Connecticut and Tammy Baldwin of Wisconsin (all Democrats, such that it matters) sent letters to Goodell and Ravens General Manager Ozzie Newsome asking for more scrutiny of domestic violence.

No, but they'll now be spending weeks pontificating about the issue and providing themselves press for it (must be an election year in those jurisdictions).

 

It's mostly comical to me because, you know, he was criminally charged for the matter. In a court of law. Where the Senate has a much higher likelihood of authority. That fact alone proves the previous point that it's all a show that we're stuck paying for.

no one thinks what Ray did was right. but this is getting stupid. If he was anything but a football player. he wouldn't have lost close to a million dollars or any days at work. If I was dumb enough to slap or hit my wife and got put in a cell for the weekend. I'm not going to get punished Monday when I get to work.

Detrimate? Osama and Al Queda are dead. The economy has picked up. I'm making money hand over fist and dang happy about it. Detrimate - I don't think so.

 

OK, I'll bite.

If you think Al Quada is dead because Obama says it is, I've got this really neat bridge I'd like to sell.....

The economy is built on a house of cards. The issues that cause 07-08 recession were never fixed. 1 guy has been convicted on what happened and that is because he was so stupid as to plea out. The govt has only slapped banks and other criminal entities

We are committing war crimes with the drones left and right. We are arming police for military occupation. We are using the NSA to spy on everyone and the CIA to spy on the Senate.

These are just off the top of my head.
