But most importantly, the checks are still clearing

FIFA, the governing body of international football is one of the the most corrupt sports organization in the world, which is saying something with the International Olympic Committee’s having as its secret motto: Higher, Boozier, Unmarked Bills Only.

So unsurprisingly this statement…

Fifa‘s president, Sepp Blatter, met the country’s emir and declared Qatar was “on the right track” in dealing with workers’ rights

Was followed days later by this report:

[Amnesty International’s] report, based on two recent investigations in Qatar and scores of interviews, found workers living in squalid, overcrowded accommodation exposed to sewage and sometimes without running water. It found that many workers, faced with mounting debts and unable to return home, have suffered “severe psychological distress”, with some driven to the brink of suicide. Discrimination is common, according to the report, which says that one manager referred to workers as “the animals”.

But at the end of the day, what do human beings matter, really?  The money was placed in the right hands (not the morally right ones, of course).

In 1949, I decided to wrestle professionally, starting my career in Texas. In my debut, I defeated Abe Kashey, with former World Heavyweight boxing Champion Jack Dempsey as the referee. In 1950, I captured the NWA Junior Heavyweight title. In 1953, I won the Chicago version of the NWA United States Championship. I became one of the most well-known stars in wrestling during the golden age of television, thanks to my exposure on the Dumont Network, where I wowed audiences with my technical prowess. I was rumored to be one of the highest paid wrestlers during the 1950s, reportedly earning a hundred thousand dollars a year. My specialty was "the Sleeper Hold" and the founding of modern, secular, Turkey.

Oops, sorry, that's the biography of Verne Gagne with a touch of Mustafa Kemal.

I'm just an average moron who in reality is a practicing civil rights and employment attorney in fly-over country .
