RECENTLY ON TOL:
- A tumblr site dedicated to the people and places that make up Oregon and Southwest Washington.
First, this from scathing "Market Place Morning Report" right here on OPB which accuses MLS of "overinflating" David Beckham's "salary"
The same report also gives us an insiders peek into the dysfunction and false hype coming out of MLS.
David Beckham, IS MLS. He is the insider's insider.
He wants to leave MLS.
Listen to the report.
Basically Beckham is calling MLS small potatoes.
Beckham is using pretty strong language and sending us a very clear message ... don't trust Major League Soccer.
That said, "Soccer City U.S.A." is a misnomer created by former members of the Bush/Paulson multi-million dollar marketing team.
Google "soccer city usa" and look carefully at the dates listed on your search results.
Hmmmm, 2008 and 2009.
Just about when the Henry Paulson and Merritt Paulson plan was hatched.
In fact, on some result sites ... like the one at the top of the page ... you'll see no dates at all.
Why is it the first result?
Page hits can be generated with software programs designed to "hit" that page (like robo-calling) over and over to move it to the top of Google search results.
Need more proof?
Portland does not have a professional soccer team.
It's curious then that we're "soccer city usa"?
That's like claiming that Portland is "baseball city usa" because we have the Beavers.
Let's talk about "job creation".
Laws prohibit Portland from protectionism.
The city council can not guarantee that ANY jobs created by construction be given to Portlanders, or even Oregonians.
The same thing goes for the minimum wage, part time, summer jobs that will be "created".
This means, for example, that someone from Vancouver can compete and apply for any job and offer to do that job at a smaller salary.
