Well, as usual you have it wrong..the report states that "800,000 people stopped looking for work OR QUIT WORKING." That's actually good news. People are confident enough in the economy to retire, quit work because of a disability or attend school full-time. You are still stuck on stupid.

NBA Can't Legally Terminate Sterling's Ownership
Breitbart's Sports ^| April 30, 2014 | Ben Shapiro
Posted on 5/1/2014 12:23:25 AM by 2ndDivisionVet
(VIDEO-AT-LINK)
On Tuesday, the National Basketball Association released its Constitution and By-laws – and the release of the text demonstrates clearly that despite media reports, Los Angeles Clippers owner Donald Sterling cannot be voted out of ownership of his team by colleagues for his racist statements.
Yesterday, NBA commissioner Adam Silver fined Sterling $2.5 million and suspended him for life from the league. He certainly has that power under the Constitution and By-laws. Under Article 24(l), the commissioner has the power to do that which is in his best judgment with regard to remedies not covered by the Constitution or By-laws:
Where a situation arises which is not covered in the Constitution and By-laws, the Commissioner shall have the authority to make such decision, including the imposition of a penalty, as in his judgment shall be in the best interests of the Association. The penalty that may be assessed under the preceding two sentences may include, without limitation, a fine, suspension, and/or the forfeiture or assignment of draft choices. No monetary penalty fixed under this provision shall exceed $2,500,000.
Provision 35A(d) spells this out further:
The Commissioner shall have the power to suspend for a definite or indefinite period, or to impose a fine not exceeding $1,000,000, or to inflict both such suspension and fine upon any person who, in his opinion, shall have been guilty of conduct prejudicial or detrimental to the Association.
In other words, Silver’s peremptory power is limited to Sterling’s suspension from the NBA and a fine of $2.5 million. It does not extend to booting him from ownership of his team. Furthermore, the association by-laws do not grant the power for owners to force Sterling to sell his team. Termination provisions can only be initiated for violation of specific rules....
"NBA Can't Legally Terminate Sterling's Ownership" - in theory may be valid

Will the old boys club of owners decide that they have had enough and that his ownership threatens their bottom line?

it is a breach of the bylaws...for which the remaining owners can vote for expulsion.

The Member whose Owner, Officer, Manager, Coach or other employee has been so fined shall pay the amount of the fine should such person fail to do so within ten (10) days of its imposition.

Yea, California's tax on a gallon of gas is 71.3 cents (including the Federal tax of 18.4 cents). With all the automobiles we have, it is the price we have to pay to have cleaner air. Galt knows full well that Obama doesn't not control the price of gasoline. He just can't seem to escape the rut he is in of blaming Obama for everything, no matter how ridiculous.

Poor income students think this: You have to pay to go to college, and you have to work hard to get in! Or you can get paid to do nothing. Umm they are not that stupid! Their mentality is "my mom got paid to do nothing why would I work harder- it's a free income! Some one knock me up!! That's more money from the government!"
