|danseiden||Something righties refuse to get about the Occupy movement. It's not the money, it is the endless ass kissing and favoritism given to the 1%'s. If Pujols can command $250M, then good for him. But if his boss is making his money through sweetheart stadium deals at taxpayers expense, if he employs tax dodges and loopholes that are legislated purely for the benefit of the so-called "job creators" then there is a problem. If the 1%'s would actually produce something instead of living off of a bribed congress ,a captured regulatory framework and an accommodating Ferderal Reserve, we would all be in better shape. You don't have to look any further than this: |
We bailed these mofo's out. Part of the reason that we allowed too big to fail banks was so that they would be a conduit to the general economy. So that they would do what they are in business for - to lend money - and that is what they are NOT doing.
So don't begrudge Albert his big pay day. Baseball is the entertainment business and guys like Pujols are the talent. If the boss figures he will put asses in the seats and pay off that high salary then he made an astute decision. Otherwise he fucked up.
