I do not agree with what Ray Rice did but lets recognize what did occur. Ray Rice and his financee got into a violent argument that resulted in both parties striking out at each other. My personal philosophy is that a man should not strike a woman. Ray and Janay met with Goodell and Janay asked for leniency for Ray which Goodell took into consideration when handing down his decision. My problem now is that Ray issubjected to double jeopardy. Ray was heard, his case was decided by the courts and the NFL and punishment was handed out. IT IS OVER. Regardless of how terrible is was it is over. Ray should not be subject to second guessing. We can use what occurred to change the process but we should not re-try Ray, and Janay, for something that has been settled. In the case of professional atheletes, regardless of the presumed crime, place a player arrested on administrative leave until the legal process has concluded. By doing so the player is encourage to resolve the situation promptly rather than delaying a result so they can continue to play. Using the legal decision as the backbone for any league decision, assign any punishment based upon union agreed standards of behavior. You do a criminal act you sit. You're innocent you get reinstated and can play.

What everyone must understand is that the free market can offr affordable healthcare and insurance. The cost of medical care is so high expressly because of Medicare and Medicaid that pay only a fraction of the actual cost of the care a patient receives. If we all the cost of our routine care and for those minor events that are unexpected, leaving insurance to cover only the catastropic events, cancer, heart care, organ transplants, etc., you would be amazed at how much the cost of healthcare would come down, literally overnight. The government has placed us in this mess and they intend to keep us here. The politicians, right or left, will not go down without a fight. Their pockets are too well lined by the healthcare manufacturing industries to allow it to go away easily.
SHOCKED!!! Just shocked. Who would ever believe our government would do such a things to the people. Just absolutely shocked!! (satirical, for you libs)
