238 is here.  This is Tendown 239.

1. The Piece to Read About Gawker.

Gawker always said it was in the business of publishing true stories. Here is one last true story: You live in a country where a billionaire can put a publication out of business. A billionaire can pick off an individual writer and leave that person penniless and without legal protection.
If you want to write stories that might anger a billionaire, you need to work for another billionaire yourself, or for a billion-dollar corporation. The law will not protect you. There is no freedom in this world but power and money.

2. Trump supporters.

If there is no economic context, and Trump’s supporters are just mired in primordial racism, then they are forever lost in the morass of right-wing politics. This bolsters the vision of the Democratic Party as comprising an alliance of affluent whites and people of color with a political agenda of multicultural neoliberalism, where economic reforms can be limited to improved educational options and after-tax redistribution. If Trump voters are just “idiots” appealed to “not at a low intellectual level but at a sub-intellectual level” (as Jonathan Chait has put it) then progressives can forget about the angry white guys.
The Bernie Sanders campaign, however, held out another possible future: a multiracial working-class movement with socialist politics, seeking a fundamental reordering of power relations. That Sanders did so well in many white working-class regions where Trump also won big, like West Virginia, made such a strategy seem feasible for the first time in decades, if not longer. This conclusion is bad news for both parties’ establishments and the interests they represent. It’s difficult to believe that it was exclusively the racism or sexism of Democratic primary voters in poor white states that motivated them to support a self-described socialist who likes to cite Denmark as a model country.
We know that Trump finds a lot of support among blue-collar men who live in communities where white people are prematurely dying at shocking rates and young people have a bleak economic outlook. Despite the ways in which he grotesquely builds upon the politics of his more conventional predecessors, Trump is a bizarre and unsettling candidate. We still know too little about what is driving his support. But it’s willful ignorance to insist that economics doesn’t play a major role.
3. I don't have a link here...
I just wanted to offer the following thought - I find the Harambe meme (Harambe was the gorilla who was killed, referencing Harambe has now become a popular meme/joke, particularly on Twitter; this week the Cincinnati Zoo asked that people stop sending it tweets using the joke, as, you know it's painful; Harambe wasn't killed in 1977, it was just a few months ago) really unpleasant.  It's premised on the idea that the death of a gorilla isn't that big a deal and so it's funny to joke about.  
I've been snarky as long as I can recall, at least since Dave started Late Night - this might be the best evidence that I've aged out of that element of the culture.
5. The end of privatization?

6. Dont Have a Student Loan in Texas

Seven armed U.S. marshals arrived at his door in Houston last Thursday, arrested him on the spot, and took him to jail. He owed all of $1,500, outstanding since 1987. Aker told Fox 26 that without any warning, his 29-year-old debt was forcibly being collected; the marshals took him to federal court and made him sign a payment plan. “It was totally mind-boggling,” Aker told Fox 26. 

Matt Paré chatted with teammates and underwent a long treatment session as other Augusta GreenJackets players exited through a clubhouse door wedged open with a broken bat. He kept himself awake with a marathon shower.
By the time Paré dressed, he had the clubhouse to himself, along with what was left of the GreenJackets' postgame buffet. "What have we got, Sarge?" he called toward clubhouse manager Kristopher Nichols, a former Army drill sergeant who appreciates - and usually rewards - Paré's resourcefulness.
Paré is the oldest player for the San Francisco Giants' Class-A affiliate, and he begins most homestands by waiting out his teammates in order to stockpile free food.

the more Clinton’s allies have worked to defend big money donations to the Clinton Foundation, the more closely they resemble the right-wing principles they once denounced.
In one telling argument in defense of the Clinton Foundation, Media Matters, another group run by David Brock, argued this week that there was “no evidence of ethics breaches” because there was no explicit quid pro quo cited by the AP. The Media Matters piece mocked press figures for focusing on the “optics” of corruption surrounding the foundation.
Such a standard is quite a reversal for the group. In a piece published by Media Matters only two years ago, the organization criticized conservatives for focusing only on quid pro quo corruption — the legal standard used to decide the Citizens United and McCutcheon Supreme Court decisions — calling such a narrow focus a “new perspective of campaign finance” that dismisses “concerns about institutional corruption in politics.” The piece notes that ethics laws concerning the role of money in politics follow a standard, set forth since the Watergate scandal, in which even the appearance, or in other words, the “optics” of corruption, is cause for concern.
Americans between 18 to 24 are largely snubbing the old-fashioned bar of soap, leading to sales declines for the likes of Ivory’s iconic 125-year old bar and its bar soap rivals, according to new data from consumer research firm Mintel. Consumers who still buy bar soap, it turns out, have something in common: they tend to be over 60 years old and are men.
And one more...
That's all for this time.  I'll be back next time.  If there is a next time...

Tendown August 21, 2016

Sunday, August 21, 2016

237 is here.  This is Tendown 238

1. Kissinger?

2. Impractical Movements

3. A good Piece about the Campaign.

How is it “economic reductionism” to campaign on a program that seeks to unite the broad working class around concerns shared throughout the class across race, gender, and other lines? Ironically, in American politics now we have a Left for which any reference to political economy can be castigated as “economic reductionism.”
It is similarly instructive that a strain of identitarian feminists repeatedly sought to characterize support for Sanders as coming mainly from sexist men on the Left. This was an adaptation of an earlier hoax about the existence of a phalanx of misogynist “brocialist” men who threatened feminists with rape or other violence for their reluctance to subordinate feminist concerns to a male-centered class-reductionist socialism.
It’s immensely revealing, and exposing this is one contribution the campaign made that I never anticipated, that we now have a “left” in the United States for which socialism is considered a marker of backwardness. It’s good that that is now clear; it’s always good to know where people stand in relation to class struggle.
4. Papelbon's Trump Song
The line about "rap" probably gives away the game.

Now maybe players don’t, or shouldn’t, care whether the home fans like them. If a Nationals player did care, though, he probably wouldn’t have wanted to wear a T-shirt reading “Obama can’t ban these guns” to hislet’s-make-amends spring training news conference. Nor would he have, on multiple occasions, played a political anthem while reporters were inside the Nats clubhouse.
The ditty was called “Vote For Trump,” and it included promises that “the wall will get built by Mexico” and that Trump would “bring back country [and] get rid of rap,” also noting that “if you don’t like it you can all just kiss our ass.”

6. Trillions?

7. Climate Change

We’re used to war as metaphor: the war on poverty, the war on drugs, the war on cancer. Usually this is just a rhetorical device, a way of saying, “We need to focus our attention and marshal our forces to fix something we don’t like.” But this is no metaphor. By most of the ways we measure wars, climate change is the real deal: Carbon and methane are seizing physical territory, sowing havoc and panic, racking up casualties, and even destabilizing governments. (Over the past few years, record-setting droughts have helped undermine the brutal strongman of Syria and fuel the rise of Boko Haram in Nigeria.) It’s not that global warming is like a world war. It is a world war. Its first victims, ironically, are those who have done the least to cause the crisis. But it’s a world war aimed at us all. And if we lose, we will be as decimated and helpless as the losers in every conflict--except that this time, there will be no winners, and no end to the planetwide occupation that follows.

8. Thinking about a Clinton Presidency (or why you shouldn't tell protesters at the convention that they're being ridiculous to curry favor with your fancy friends, Sarah Silverman)

The burgeoning social movements of the left should take a cue. The historical record is clear: Progress in America happens when militant social movements are willing to make life uncomfortable for liberal presidents, whether it be the sit-down strikes of the 1930s or the civil rights marches of the 1960s. Activists now have more tools in their political box, thanks to their online networks. Environmentalists, for instance, scored big by making the Keystone pipeline the target of their ire, combining targeted protests with online pressure campaigns to make it clear that Democrats—Clinton among them—couldn’t count on their vote until they landed on the right side of the issue.
Would President Clinton be annoyed by constant, nagging pressure from her left? Would her ferocious loyalists denounce the ungrateful dissidents for undercutting party unity in the face of Republican opposition? Yes, no doubt, on both counts. But if the left takes a chapter from Warren, from BLM, and from Sanders—and from the countless centrists and right wingers who have pressed their issues and images onto her for decades—Clinton may actually end up thanking them for the pressure.

Conservatives’ zeal for reining in government turns into something else when marginalized groups, or groups they disdain — people of color, women, LGBT Americans, low-income Americans — suffer under the only form of “big government” conservatives don’t seem to mind. In Baltimore and other cities, the police are essentially “big government in a blue uniform,” engaging in unchecked, arbitrary use of power against black citizens, without fear of punishment, and with the full authority of government behind them.

America is a land ruled by fear. We fear that our children will be abducted by strangers, that crazed gunmen will perpetrate mass killings in our schools and theaters, that terrorists will gun us down or blow up our buildings, and that serial killers will stalk us on dark streets. All of these risks are real, but they are minuscule in probability: taken together, these threats constitute less than three per cent of total annual homicides in the US.[9] The numerically greater threat to our safety, and the largest single category of strangers who threaten us, are the people we have empowered to use deadly force to protect us from these less probable threats. The question for Americans is whether we will continue to tolerate police violence at this scale in return for protection against the quantitatively less likely threats.

And one more...

that's all for this time, I'll be back next time...if there is a next time...

SummerSlam 2016 is this Sunday (+Every Summer Slam Match Ranked...1-228)

Wednesday, August 17, 2016

About 2 decades ago, I started giving previews/reviews of WWF PPVs to Kirk Hiner; how did Kirk Hiner find out about the Austin 3:16 promo - I read it to him after the show.  Perhaps losing something in the translation.

That's turned into my previewing the "big 4" WWE PPVs in this space, which I've been doing since 2008.  Summer Slam is this Sunday, it's in Brooklyn, and it's going to be a happening.

WWE Title: Dean Ambrose v. Dolph Zigger
-When last we left, at Mania 32, Roman Reigns (boooo!....boooo!) was stubbornly continuing an unopular babyface title run, a couple of months ago that belt was moved to a returning Seth Rollins and then immediately to a briefcase cashing in Dean Ambrose, all 3 members of the Shield WWE Champions on the same night.

Subsequently, WWE engineered a "brand split" - making Ambrose exclusively a Smackdown wrestler.  Ziggler won a multiple man match to make him #1 contender and they've done a babyface/babyface program "they're friends, I guess, but they'll do anything to win the title, hey, that wasn't so friendly what he did - hey, they're gonna go right now, THERE'S NOT GONNA BE A SUMMERFEST!"

Neither man is at his hottest, despite the title belt, Ambrose feels more homogenized than his best historical antecedents (Pillman...Piper...) he's a kid friendly crazy man.  Ziggler, in a different timeline is 21st century Shawn Michaels as opposed to a guy seen by the promotion as just an interchangeable body.

Should be a very good match, Ambrose should keep the belt - a heel turn by Ziggler would make sense.

Edit - it was a very basic match, Ambrose kept. 15 min 3 stars

WWE Universal Title: Seth Rollins v. Finn Balor
-Given that the Olympics are in Rio - an angle claiming that this belt was created in a Brazilian tournament would have been my preference.  Since Smackdown's got the title - RAW needs one to, so this becomes the other Heavyweight belt.  Rollins was gifted this slot, Balor beat the aforementioned Reigns, in a significant shift away from the direction of the promotion given that it was Balor's debut on the main roster.

The build has focused on what...I an alternate persona of Balor's "The Demon King" - which is Balor with face paint; it's unclear if he'll be presented as having mystical powers (or if he'll eat worms; his entrance is a little too Boogeyman for me).

Should be an excellent match; it's Balor's main roster PPV debut, fair to call it his biggest ever match; lower than 4 stars would be a disappointment.  I'd expect a Balor win and a short title run.

Edit - Balor fought through a torn labrum and a crowd that wasn't really into most of the match to win the title, 19 min 4 stars

Brock Lesnar (w/Heyman) v. Randy Orton
-Intriguing match here, Orton's returning from a long injury related layoff and is apparently ready to resume a spot at the top of the card on the babyface side - it's Lesnar's return from a successful UFC fight (PED failure taking the shine of that success, admittedly).  Brock, rightly so, doesn't lose a helluva lot, given his performance and nature of the character - but a loss would be a weird way to re-debut Orton.   Lesnar's work record, up until Mania 32, was pretty unimpeachable in this run - but this is a match that might not come together.  Not sure how motivated Brock will be to put a guy like Randy Orton over - which, I think, is the more likely outcome.  Dominant Lesnar match - RKO - Orton wins.

Edit - Brock won in 11 on a brutal blood stoppage that I dug the most.  3 1/2 

AJ Styles v. John Cena
-AJ came into the promotion after a hot run with New Japan and apparently surprised some in management with his level of name recognition to a fanbase which had never been exposed to him via WWE television. He lost more than won, because that's how WWE does you, then turned heel to begin this program with Cena.  AJ's marginally had the better end of the deal, but that should come to an end here in a good match.

Edit - 23 min, it was a very good match with Syles going over clean it what seemed like a match a guy loses who is leaving the territory 4 1/4

US Title Rusev (w/Lana) v. Roman Reigns
-The masked Kalisto was the US Champ when last we left - he dropped to Rusev, who has returned to his original ass kicking Eastern European with the superhot valet (now wife) gimmick.  The honor of the US is being defended by Reigns, whose PED suspension and continued inability to get over at the level needed of a babyface world champion, has resulted in his slide down the card.  It's a solid powerhouse program; Reigns won a long, not particularly good, match on the go home RAW which would seemingly indicate the match goes the other way here; if it does, it's a screwjob, so we'll pick that and say the feud must continue.

Edit - match didn't happen, they brawled before bell.  

Tag Team Titles New Day v. The Club
Anderson and Gallows were ass kicking tag champs in Japan, so now they're doing a comedic act with lab coats and urine.  New Day is the longest reigning tag champs ever, but are (maybe) going without Kingston here, as he was storyline injured in the program.  I'm not a big New Day fan; wrestling comedy, as mentioned in this space before, is sort of like comedy in porn, even when its not terrible it's not why you're at the game.  A title change makes some sense here.

Edit - 9 min, Jon Stewart involved, there wasn't really a finish, it was bad, 1 1/4 stars

IC Title: Miz (w/Maryse) v. Apollo Crews
-Miz's wife joined the act since last we left; he took the IC from Zach Ryder, improbable winner at WM32, and now is programmed against young Crews, just up from developmental - this seems the most likely of the screwjob leading to a rematch booking scenarios.  Crews is good - Miz is Miz.

Edit - 5:30, Miz clean, nothing match. 2 stars

Women's Title: Sasha Banks v. Charlotte
-This is the new belt, launched at Mania with Charlotte winning, and switched over to Sasha since.  Ric is now out of his daughter's act and has left the promotion - Charlotte's a limited worker (all the women are sort of limited, outside of Asuka in developmental, but don't say that too loudly) Sasha's better, and she probably gives back the belt in a good match.

Edit - Charlotte did get the belt back in a 14 minute match, it was a mess. 2 3/4 

Kevin Owens/Chris Jericho v. Enzo/Cass
-Speaking of limited, lets discuss Cass and Enzo, who have become popular since coming up from developmental in spite of being...not the ring.  Owens and Jericho are a makeshift heel team that is put together to break up and feud, only question is when that happens.

Edit - 12 min, solid enough, basic but well done basic, 3 stars, heels going over.

Best of 7: Cesaro v. Sheamus
-New workrate feud, Cesaro and Sheamus are launching a Best of 7 series that should be good; Sheamus isn't at Cesaro's level as a worker but he should still be game for some good matches.

Edit - pre-show match, good, 3 1/2 stars. Sheamus went over

There's also a 6 Woman tag just made this week.

Edit - and it was 11 minutes of boring 1 star.

This is a good show; I'd go out of my way to see Rollins/Balor and there are 3-4 other matches that I'd expect to deliver.  It's a show worth the PPV money they should still be charging in a smarter business model.

Some number of these matches will be on the pre-show and not make their way to the below list - where I've ranked every one of the 228 matches in SummerSlam history.
