The World Series
The World Series properly named would be the Height of
Ignorance. There is no better example of how we the people that are supposed to
be in charge are so easily manipulated by the rich and powerful.
We just witnessed our elected leaders (that are supposed to
represent you and me) on Capitol Hill reject putting a small tax on the rich to
put thousands of Americans back to work.
I wonder how many Americans realize how many taxes we pay
through taxes and the goods we buy to field a baseball team. Very few of we the
people will ever see a World Series or A Super Bowl game. Yet we the people are
taxed to build the stadiums. We are then again taxed through the goods we buy
to pay for the salaries of the players and the corporate seats in the stadiums.
That is just for starters. We also pay for the corporate jets that corporate executives
use to fly to Washing DC to pick up their friends. They are wined and dined on
their way to the World Series and we the people pick up the tab.
