Time to Pay the Military Like the National Basketball Association
Pro athletes, particularly those in the professional basketball, baseball, football and hockey leagues, are whining again about getting their share of the pie. The way they figure it, the billionaires and investors who own the teams are raking in the dough and since it's because of their "skills", they deserve more of the massive profits. Without them, there would be no leagues and no profits. Top players are now being paid far more than most corporate and bank CEO's while average players live next door to the bastards.
Boycott professional sports!
But I've got an idea. It's been established for a least a century (Smedley) that the U.S. military is used by the billionaires and corporations to wage imperialism across the planet for massive profits. Since military members are basically in the same situation as professional athletes, i.e., they're the ones actually facilitating the profits, often with their lives, limbs and minds, it's only fair that they be paid along the same pay scales as those professional athletes. Without them there would be no U.S. imperialism, destructive wars and corporate and billionaire profits. (At least until the fucking robots take over.)
The billionaires are making incredible profits off of both sets of humans, fair is fair.
I call on all professional athletes to call for equal pay with the U.S. military. In fact, they're always bragging and showing off on how much they appreciate the military dying and getting their limbs amputated so they can make millions of dollars a year in a capitalist/imperialist system that uses soldiers and sailors as cannon fodder, so they should put their mouths where their money is, if they can find any room.
If not, boycott the One Percenters in pro sports, and their masters. Ah fuck it, do it anyway.
Let's see, who else makes money for the billionaires and deserves a bigger share?
