In all honesty, those "luxury" boxes at RFK suck.I can totally see why Corporate America felt the need to (have built) a new baseball stadium. I was in one the other day and it's kind of unseemly and there's no bar, let alone a FULL bar w/ a real bartender.... And you can't see the game from the bar type area.It was just dreadfull, I tell ya. Dreadfull.
It was dreadfull and trifling all at the same time.
KIND OF HOW CONEY ISLAND SUCKS NOW TOO RIGHT?SUCKS KIND OF HOW BROOKLYN NOT HAVING A BASEBALL TEAM ANYMORE RIGHT?SUCKS KIND OF HOW 2001 ODYSSEY CLOSING DOWN AND THE OWNER SOLD JOHN TRAVOLTAS DANCE FLOOR RIGHT?
Education??? Oh come on Rusty. You know damn well that the east coast is dramatically behind in national fat-ass rankings.Our fair city is in dire need of a $611 million complex that will enlarge the asses of everyone who goes to there to drink beer, eat hotdogs, and enhance their sedentary lifestyles-- all while overpaid fit men run around a diamond.
And then my hummer gets dinged in the parking lot. Jesus Christ.
On the $8 potato...What's not to get?Yeah, I GET the connection, you moron. The question was HOW much this factors into the overall argument. The idea itself is relatively simple, as you stated.NOw, I suppose you might want to lecture me on elementary geometry or algebra. You'd make a good kindergarten teacher.When i said I wanted to read more about the $8 potato, I didn't mean that I didn't understand the concept, I meant I wondered what would be the optimum balance between free markets and protectionism?We're obviously at some sort of balance in between the two right now. Duh.I should hire you to teach my dog the concept of "sit" or "shake." You're a real whizzkid.But anyone who doesn't completely agree w/ you is racist or ignorant. get bent.
You simple-minded creatures like slogans so much, here's one for ya:We are more than just a marketplace, we are a nation--Lou Dobbs
I merely said I needed to do some more reading because I thought I might be a bit ignorant.But you're going to come off like you've got all of the answers. Man, admitting how much you don't know is a sign that you might not be retarded afterall. It's jackasses like you who are so self-assured that make this world way too smelly.
KIND OF HOW CONEY ISLAND SUCKS NOW TOO RIGHT?SUCKS KIND OF HOW BROOKLYN NOT HAVING A BASEBALL TEAM ANYMORE RIGHT?SUCKS KIND OF HOW 2001 ODYSSEY CLOSING DOWN AND THE OWNER SOLD JOHN TRAVOLTAS DANCE FLOOR RIGHT?You're right anonymous. RFK stadium ranks right up there in historical importance as John Travolta's dance floor, Archie Bunker's easy chair (in the Smithsonian) and the Liberty Bell.What were they thinking? And the beat goes on. Most people in Brooklyn are now fans of the New York Yankees.You've heard of them, yes?
Latest Report: Illegal Immigration Costs New York $4.5 Billion Analysis based on current estimates of the illegal alien population residing in New York indicates that population is costing the state’s taxpayers more than $5.1 billion per year for education, medical care and incarceration. That annual tax burden amounts to about $874 per New York household headed by a native-born resident. Even if the estimated $730 million in sales, income and property taxes collected from illegal immigrants are subtracted from the fiscal outlays, net costs still amount to more than $4.5 billion per year.THOSE CHEAP CONSUMER GOODS ARE NOT "FREE."
Yup, so maybe we should make it so they pay taxes and work here LEGALLY. Or we could "stay the course" and keep deporting (becasue you KNOW they won't try to come back).
