Morons in PA Legislature About to Tax us For A New Team in Philly That Won't Win a Championship in a Sport Nobody Cares About

Wow, taxes to go towards a stadium is just a bad idea in the first place, but a soccer stadium..$45 million dollars? This has got to be one of the worst sports decisions since the Philadelphia 76ers hired Billy King, who surprise, surprise, was fired today. Get back on track, right, I know. Well insanity is sometimes defined as doing the same things over and expecting different results. First, sending Libtards to any legislature and expecting anything good to come of it falls under that definition. Second, Mr. Philadelphia Ed Rendell, whose primary concern outside of Philadelphia is how he can watch Comcast Sports, was sure to bring home more bacon for the city. Third, it's soccer, folks. You know, the sport that has been around forever and has never been popular in the U.S., ranks behind skiing, boxing, horse racing, curling, etc. How can they possibly imagine this will work when it's already failed before, in the 70s....at the height of the drug era.....stoned hippies everywhere, who are amused by goldfish, clouds, and butterflies...found it so boring that not just the team, but the entire league folded. There is really one target audience that this pork project is catered to..one whose insane growth level in the area could insure Donkeycrats a longer stay in office even if the votes are illegal...Here's a clue:

"Today, as we sit here, we see a really mature, soccer-consuming audience," said Nick Sakiewicz, president of sports promoter AEG New York, who is working to bring a team here. "Back in the '70s and '80s, there was really no soccer-consuming market."

The former pro goalkeeper and two-time Major League Soccer executive of the year, widely credited with securing a new stadium for the New York Red Bulls, sees solid evidence why, this time, soccer can't miss:

Local exhibitions between top international teams, such as the game between Manchester United and FC Barcelona at Lincoln Financial Field in 2003, draw sellout crowds.

The fast-growing immigrant community from Mexico and other Latin American nations provides a solid base of knowledgeable, enthusiastic fans. The Mexican population in Pennsylvania and New Jersey grew 74 percent from 2000 to 2006.

$40 Million Dollars to buy off a large portion of the illegal immigrants in PA and NJ, and no that's not a blanket statement, you know what's happened in Hazleton, and believe me, it's happening in many more communities. Even in Easton, PA where I grew up and outskirts of Palmer arrests are being made and deportations (thankfully) in process for the illegals who have trolled their free loaded asses up here. In the meantime, have fun driving on I-83, I-78, I-80, and I-81, and ask yourself why the roads can never be fixed up and sinkholes not filled. Sure the Dems go on TV and cry about it, but hey, it's a never ending tax cycle. Fund pork projects to secure votes, complain they did not have enough money to actually do the job they were supposed to do with the money, and then justify a tax raise to the dullards who refuse to follow the news. You've got a friend in Pennsylvania indeed.
