How did the Writers' Strike start?
They found out that they (unfairly) were not being paid royalties for their "shared" work online. So, whenever their work was downloaded they weren't receiving any royalties.

Patriots' Tom Brady is named MVP by the Pro Football Writers of America
The Pro Football Writers Association named its MVP on Wednesday, and it's the Patriots' Tom Brady. It's hardly a surprise, although perhaps some may think it's a bit unexpected given that conversations have seemed to steer away from Brady at every opportunity.  Whether it was Kareem Hunt, Russell Wilson, Antonio Brown or Todd Gurley, it always seemed like Brady was lurking in the background. However, Hunt hit a midseason slump, Wilson's Seahawks failed to make the postseason and Brown was injured at a pivotal point in the season. Only Gurley s

* I was just reblogging a post related to the potential WGA (television script writers) strike and I very nearly tagged it with “please don’t strike writers”. I caught myself and wrote something different, because while I AM against violence against writers, that wasn’t the particular point I was going for.

Is America safe from Hillary or will she find a way to strike again?

Are you fools still bringing up Hillary? really! Ah! I know! you're getting nervous! LOL!
Later on today, post this: Is America safe from Obama or will he find a way to strike again? It will be really effective!
I have naturally beautiful hair, like Jennifer Anniston.
More importantly, is America safe from you? Your thoughts are more dangerous than she is.
She is TOAST>. BURNT TOAST
She's finished.
Dear God, I hope so.
Trump solved that nightmare.
I'm unsure if or if not that evil witch will harm us again
she will find a way ofcourse
What do the ideas about the writers of the Declaration of Independence reveal about America during the Revolutionary Era?

Sigh. Your ignorance of the subject is appalling. Call your school and ask for your money back.
In 1776 (the premature signing of the Declaration of Independence, signed before the colonies were independent), Black slaves were farm animals, not humans, so they were not afforded the same protections under the law. Many of the signers had slaves, and some had sex with their slave women. Reverend Martin Luther King Jr. threw the facts in the faces of American leaders, that the Constitution was supposed to guarantee all Americans basic civil rights. He showed that the Civil War might have liberated slaves, but liberated them to a life of wage slavery (performing the same duties, for pay, and meager pay at that). Is there much difference between feeling the lash of the whip and drag of the shackles, or watching your little daughter die of a preventable disease, for lack of proper medicine (which is too expensive). Slavery was gone, but the oppression was not. In England, starting with King Henry VIII starting the Anglican church (and assuming leadership of the church), a series of slaughters ensued. First Henry's daughter, Bloody Mary Tudor, executed over 150 protestant priests (she was Catholic because her mom was Catherine of Aragon, from Spain). Then Mary was replaced by a Protestant leader, who also ruled harshly. This religious war "seemingly" ended by the "exclusion act" which kept any Catholic from gaining the crown. However, at the death of King Charles II, his illegitimate son, James Scot (Duke of Monmouth, a protestant) was not given the kingdom (to do so would invalidate the queen (wife of Charles), and doom her to poverty). So, Charles II's brother, James II was crowned (Scot was drawn and quartered and tarred to prevent his soul from rest, following the failed Monmouth Rebellion). In America, it was hoped that all religions could get along (thus, freedom of religion in the first Amendment). It was so difficult to speak about changing the government and airing the bad things that it did, thus, in America, we gained freedom of speech (again, first Amendment), but it's primary purpose was to change a bad government. Free assembly (to speak), again 1st Amendment. No longer did private citizens have to pay for a king or soldiers (2nd Amendment). James Monroe and James Madison hashed out the power of the states vs. the power of the Federal government. Monroe was a hero of the Revolutionary War, having taken a musket ball in the shoulder, and having been carried to safety by mullato Corporal John Sidebottom (who was made made a major about a month later). Monroe knew that Blacks were human and sometimes heroic, and totally deserving of full citizenship. Yet, somehow, Monroe's voice was drowned out by the plantation owners. America was a place where individual rights were defined, but much discussion had to be done to finish the definitions.
Was Roy Moore's defeat a terribly sad event for America's comedians and comedy writers?

Not at all. They still have Trump, Harvey Weinstein and plenty of others to make fun of.
True, but they still have Trump.
Dunno but I'm laughing at all the Republicians crying that their pedophile lost
Comedians are like cockroaches , they survive, they survive anything. ( not meant as an insult )
No. Roy Moore may have lost, but he still has a microphone. Now we get to watch the liable lawsuits against him from his victims for the next year as he piles on more lies.
Yes but, a great day for America. Today, I can be a little less ashamed to be a Republican. After Comment: No, it truly is a great day for America, dummy. And, yeah, I'm still ashamed for being a lifelong Republican but, a little less so this morning. You just don't recognize it because you're stupid.
It was a sad event for Al Franken. Now he's really going to have to step down.
Nah, they still have the child-rapist-in-chief in office...
