From the Washington Post we learn, “Mark Cuban to donate $10 million to women’s groups after investigation into Dallas Mavericks.”
After a seven-month investigation into the workplace culture of the Dallas Mavericks, owner Mark Cuban agreed to donate $10 million to women’s groups, and the NBA has created a series of mandates Dallas must follow moving forward.
Those punishments were announced Wednesday afternoon, in concert with the release of a 43-page report from the investigation by former Manhattan district attorney Evan Krutoy and former New Jersey attorney general Anne Milgram.
I have zero empathy for the arrogant Mr. Cuban, but I do see that the precedent set by his purchasing “indulgences” is going to unleash a pack of predators similar to Jesse Jackson’s Rainbow Push or Al Sharpton’s National Action Network of “Shakedown Kings“, except it will be of the #Metoo movement rather than the “No Justice, No Peace” movement. On second thought, I bet you’ll see the two Reverends end up right in the middle of this new opportunity for legalized extortion.
Get this, Al. RESPECT. Even Homer knows that.

If you at a tipping point and just can’t pull the trigger for a candidate, this one reason might persuade you to vote for Donald Trump. According to The Examiner, “Al Sharpton might ‘get out of here’ if Trump wins.”
Well, Hell. Vote for Trump a dozen times if that what it takes to get Sharpton out of here. But I digress. They wrote.
Sharpton, a Democrat, had positive feedback for many of the Republican presidential candidates until he got to Trump.
“If Donald Trump is the nominee, I’m open to support anyone [else], while I’m also reserving my ticket to get out of here if he wins, only because he’d probably have me deported anyway,” Sharpton told attendees, who responded in laughter.
