Respect. That's what money can't buy. You can have millions and even billions of dollars but you can't buy respect. Awful people like the now outed racist Donald
Yesterday the National Basketball Association's commissioner, Adam Stern, banned the odious, racist Donald Sterling (I hate using his fake last name, his real last name is Tokowitz) for life from the professional basketball. He also fined him the maximum fine of 2.5 million dollars which is hardly a drop in the bucket of Sterling's (real name Tokowitz) 1.9 billion dollar ill gotten (he's a slum lord who sues at the drop of a hat) fortune. Also he's been ordered to sell his team (which he is refusing to do, wait for it……he's suing!) The irony in Sterling (real name Tokowitz) in selling his team is that the LA Clippers are probably work upwards of one billion dollars.
But you know what folks? No matter how much this cretin (and comparing Sterling - real name Tokowitz with cretins gives cretins a bad name) ends up with he won't have respect. Sure, he's got more than enough money to get a blow job for whatever pretty damsel he chooses. And he has more than enough money to have hordes of toadies bowing down to him. But he will never have the respect which I suspect he desperately wants. Now I could be wrong and this vile human being could be devoid totally of human characteristics that we take for granted, but I do believe that Sterling (real name Tokowitz) craves respect. And that folks is the ultimate punishment for this man. At 81 years of age he probably doesn't have a lot of time left on this planet to foul the air with his presence but what years he does left, he is a pariah.
I probably should feel this sense of satisfaction that Sterling (real name Tokowitz) is getting his just desserts, no matter how long delayed but I do. We all know people like Sterling. People who view and treat others as "less than" just because they are different than they are. Whether those other "different" people are gay, overweight, a different nationality, handicapped, or different religion. There are people in this world who make it their life goal to obtain vast amounts of wealth just to have power over others. Then they discriminate against those who aren't venal like they are, thus affecting their lives. But every now and then one of these human flotsams is brought down and there does seem to be some justice in this world, however rare and temporary.
