Letters to the Editor

" I think it’s absolutely correct that every major and minor city is either building a stadium or arena or being asked to estimate somewhere around $2 billion a year of public money going into these buildings, a very, very small percentage of which comes back in terms of, you know, tax benefits or actually benefits to the cities. You know, when the Yankees and the Mets first announced their deals, Mayor Bloomberg said, “Oh, you know, we don’t make subsidies; we make investments, and we get our money back.” Neil Demaus This is the same thing that Bush did! President Bush, who will go down in history as the great tax cutter, owes almost all of his fortune to a tax increase that was funneled into his pocket.What happened is, an oil man named Eddie Chiles wanted to sell his money-losing Texas Rangers baseball team. So George Bush put together a group of very wealthy investors to buy the team. He put up himself $600,000 of borrowed money
A perfect picture of the certain self-destruction of corrupt Capitalism by its own selfish weakness and rottenness and cruelty, as predicted by both Marx and the Bible! So there you have it, in the plain Words of Scripture, especially in Revelation 17 and 18!--Read it! And even so shall be her own destruction! For thy merchants were the great men of the Earth, and by thy sorceries (the deceitfulness of riches and the witchcraft of wealth!) were all nations deceived! American affluence is the dream of every country the world over, and her luxuries, sins and violence, from her music to her crimes, are imitated by nations around the world!
