The Only Good Thing About Football Is That Taxpayer Subsidized Cincinnati Bengals Never Stop Losing

The only good thing about the awful violent sport of football is that the Cincinnati Bengals always find a way to lose.

Yesterday the Bengals blew a game at home in the final minutes. It looks like yet another season of losing is ahead.

The Bengals, my former hometown team, lose year after year despite the massive public subsidy for a staduim they recived from taxpayers after they blackmailed the people of Hamilton County, Ohio with threats to leave Cincinnati.     

( Above—Two taxpayer funded stadiums that I voted against. The one closer to the bottom of the picture is where the Cincinnati Bengals play. The other is where the Cincinnati Reds play.)

The Cincinnati NAACP has it right that the people were scammed in the stadium deal. 

You’d think that with all the free money, that the Bengals could win much more often than they do.

Click here to see how much losing the Bengals have done. Beginning with the 1991 season, the Bengals have had just one winning season.

I’ll Vote For Obama If He Pays Off My Hotel Bill

I read today about Hillary Clinton asking Barack Obama to help pay off her campaign debt.

One article I read said Senator Clinton would not be able to campaign fully for Senator Obama if she had to raise money on her own to pay off the debt.

I think Senator Clinton is on to something here. I’m staying at a hotel in suburban Boston this week. I’ll vote for Senator Obama if he pays off my hotel bill.

If he refuses to pay?

Well—Then I just might be very busy on Election Day and not be able to make it to the polls.

Why should I pay pay my own bills if I can bully someone else to do so?
