Sterling is racist and his comments are disgusting but Stiviano has to be the scum of the earth, right? She was completely egging him on in that tape, she was digging for material. Then she takes it public claiming her friend 'stole it'. And then she has the nerve to do an interview saying she believes in her heart Sterling is not racist. I don't want her to get hit by a car but I hope she crawl's into a hole and never emerges. Society will be better place if both are never seen again.

At the 19 second mark. He just saw a ghost

Now I play lacrosse for a club team and have way more fun because the coach lets me off the bench. And when not raining hat tricks, I pass time as an investment analyst at a hedge fund.

This deal is actually pro-consumer. The reason your cable bills are getting jacked up is because the likes of ESPN, BTN, SEC Network and even the CBS's of the world are producing more and more content and successfuly negotiating with the Cable providers (Comcast and TWC) to charge higher per subscriber fees to show their programming to their cable subscribers. So Comcast and TWC have been raising prices in order to cover the increased costs they have to pay to the ESPNs of the world. With this merger, Comcast is now in a much better negotiating position to lower the growth of the fees it pays to the content providers. If they are successful in doing this, your cable bill should actually increase less than if the deal didn't happen.
As far as regulatory approval, Comcast and TWC don't actually compete in any of the same markets, so competition will not increase in say LA or NYC and with the increased offerings from NFLX and Amazon Prime's, I think it has a pretty good chance of closing. In market speak, the current annualized return is ~6% on the CMCSA/TWC spread (assuming deal actually closes in one yr vs end of yr) which seems tight given the regulatory questions/magnitude of deal...meaning that the investors who follow this space more closely than I do are not as skeptical of the deal getting approved as one may think.
