    are another offender that I loathe.  I love sports, I am a huge fan a few NFL teams, but fuck this bullshit about taxpayer money paying for a private enterprise.  I thought the magical invisible hand of the market was supposed to provide for these businesses, not government?

    Some people have some gall.  Let's complain that downtrodden members of society suckle at the government teat so as to make more room for professional sports or big pharma or WalMart or whatever other corporate interest lobbied.

    •  Where's the lowest unemployment? (0+ / 0-)

      Places like North Dakota, South Dakota, Iowa and Nebraska that have very few if any Corporate Welfare Sports Stadiums.

      I was going to put a joke here about how the Nebraska Cornhuskers football team is over the salary cap.  But it didn't do them a lot of good last weekend.
