This is simply terrific. Dylan Ratigan lost it on air and by lost it, I do not mean that he freaked out and blurted out gibberish like many of his colleagues do, what I mean is that he lost it when the idiotic talking heads on his panel were spouting the Republican v. Democrat rhetoric. It was horrible and he couldn’t take it any longer. The only bad part was when he apologized to the ladies that made his blood boil. Totally unnecessary Mr. Ratigan. That was simply awesome.
You hit on the fact that the politicians are powerless to act lest they lose their power. Sounds silly. To put it simply, they have been bought by the Corporatocracy! If they make a bold move, they will be dropped. No more money. No more power. No more career that lets them act like the Romans did.
I am so sick of the narcissistic politicians spewing their rhetoric. Would someone please stand up and act? I don’t mean stand at the pulpit and deliver a performance, I mean try to really, really, get something done!!!
Once again, Dylan Ratigan, that was awesome!
To quote the late Chris Farley:
I swear I’ve seen a lot of stuff in my life, but…that…was…….AWESOME!
YouTube – Elizabeth Lambert of New Mexico,APOLOGISES FOR SOCCER FIGHT AND GETS SUSPENDED 6/11/09 FULL VIDEO.
Why is Paul Krebs, UNM Athletic Director, not suspending Women’s Soccer coach Kit Vela? She let it go. Watch the video. As a parent, if my child hits someone, and I witness it, I discipline m child…IMMEDIATELY. Does Paul Krebs, the Athletic director of the University of New Mexico have kids? Is he the kind of parent that, if his kid misbehaves, he just lets it go on and does nothing.
Paul Krebs cannot be a parent. There is no way. That’s the only way to explain how he might not understand. So because he’s not a parent, I’ll fill him in. As a parent, I am RESPONSIBLE for my children. If they misbehave and are mean to others, I step in and teach them right from wrong. Otherwise, they are just left to freely act as they desire. If I don’t tell them something is wrong, then they must think it’s OK right? Yes, I miss things. Yes, my kids misbehave. It’s part of growing up. But, if I’m watching my kids, FOR 90 MINUTES, and they act inappropriately, I will step in. Kit Vela DID NOTHING! The refs are another story altogether. But I dare Kit Vela to say she didn’t notice what was happening.
Isn’t all this very similar to what a coach is supposed to do? Isn’t Kit Vela responsible for how University of New Mexico kids represent the University? I am sure responsible for how my kids represent MY FAMILY! It’s complete BS to say, because they suspended the player, everything is fine. FOCUS ON THE COACH NOW.
Does Paul Krebs, the athletic director, understand he has a responsibility to the community? The University of New Mexico has an obligation as an INSTITUTION OF HIGHER LEARNING. Does he understand what higher learning means? Does he think higher learning just means books?
Paul Krebs and Kit Vela have jobs they’d like to keep. So, UNM blames everything on the player and acts tough about a suspension so the problem with go away right? THE PROBLEM IS, it went on for 90 minutes and the coach DIDN’T DO ANYTHING. NOTHING. Mr. Krebs should suspend the coach to gain credibility because, this isn’t an isolated incident where the coach could not control the player.
Here’s the pathetic truth. If we didn’t make a stink about it, nothing would have been done. Someone rightly points it out and the University reacts and gives the canned apology. Absolutely pathetic.
