What Is Wrong With This Picture?

Do you see something wrong with this picture?

We've got a basketball athlete, already getting paid in the millions of dollars, asking for a raise. Then look at the other major headline, the one about 155,000 positions will be lost by 2011 after a projected 3 years of declining employment.

Now let's look at some of the lowest paid professions: Our military and educators. Why should any athlete be asking for a pay raise for running around on a basketball court (or pick any other sport you like) when we have people keeping this country safe and educating the future leaders and entrepreneurs who get financially shafted by this nation?

Thank you, I'll get off my soapbox now. :o)

Stay on your soapbox, it's the only way people will listen and pay attention.
