Poor people should get off their lazy asses and get a job. Glad Pat is cutting their wages. Tired of my tax money going to those idiots.

Are there job openings at your bootstrap factory?

This reminds me alot of North Wilkesboro Speedway. It wasn't so much the fact that New Hampshire was a new racetrack for Nascar to go to with more stands, it was more the fact that the speedway itself would run out of water on Sundays during the race. The town of North Wilkesboro/Wilkesboro and the county refused to build a pipeline from Wilkesboro to the racetrack. By essentially refusing this, NW could no longer expand its capacity, which it could have much like Bristol or atleast Richmond in terms of capacity.

I know the county of Wilkes lost $9million each year from the revenue that the 2 races brought in and that was in 1996-97. Today that's probably $20million a year.

While it does suck to pay out that money to fund the stadium, what the city would lose each year would be far worse.

They can come make minimum wage where I work...legal or not. Plenty of openings.
Or the government can get smart and start farming the medians along the highways using the labor of those that want a hand-out and are able-bodied.
Piss in this cup and show me you aren't on drugs and you can have a job...otherwise good luck.
I already give up 42% of my paycheck to the Gov. I can't give anymore.

Because studies have shown that public funding of taxpayer stadiums actually loses governments money.
